Expect the Institutionalized “progressive” Left to Come Out in Force

Comedian Bill Maher gave $1 million to one of President Obama’s SuperPACs. Actor Alec Baldwin’s on record saying that Obama’s re-election ‘In the Bag’. Lanny Davis, who writes for The Hill, is busy covering up for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder during Congressional investigations into the murder of U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexican citizens resulting from the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. MSNBC stopped inviting Conservative author Matt Lewis to contribute on-air after the site he works for, the Daily Caller, reported about the influence George Soros funded Media Matters for America wields over that Network. “Coincidentally”, Conservative pundit Pat Buchannan was also dropped by MSNBC around that same time.

As is always the case with any non-white or non-male Republican star, the institutionalized “progressive” left media is focused on Florida Senator Marco Rubio who, being a Hispanic from a crucial swing state, poses an existential threat to the re-election of Barack Obama. Not surprisingly, openly leftist actress Eva Longoria joined in the attack by saying “Marco Rubio has been coming up with some silly stuff that we really have to sort through”.

Meanwhile, the American mainstream media remains silent after a BarackObama speech where he joked: “I went to the speaker’s home town,” referring to a trip to House Speaker John Boehner’s battleground state of Ohio, “stood under a bridge that was crumbling.” Somebody in the crowd shouted, “Let him drive on it!”

Cue the sound of crickets.

This is the same press that had a field day back in 2008 when, on one or two occasions, a few folks attending McCain/Palin rallies shouted ugly comments from the crowd. These incidents were reported as major, top of the broadcast, front-page news. Repeatedly, with frequency and vigor.

During nationwide May Day demonstrations by OWS, occupiers themselves willing admitted that their protesters were taking marching orders from big labor and public service unions like the AFL-CIO and SEIU.

One of the leaders of the Occupy Cleveland movement, Brandon Baxter, was arrested for a terrorist plot to bomb a bridge in Cleveland Ohio. The plot has been directly linked to the Occupy movement. The names and the official complaint have been confirmed.

There were multiple incidences of violence around the country, with occupiers shouting the likes of “Pigs Go Home” and “Down with Capitalism”. With tear gas in Oakland, violence and vandalism in Seattle, SEIU members disrupting Los Angeles International Airport, with Occupiers calling themselves anarchists and hurling Molotov Cocktails; despite all evidence to the contrary, American taxpayer funded NPR is still calling the violent Occupy protests “restrained”.

By comparison, when the Tea Party was the topic de jour, Democrats and their “progressive” Party Pravda lapdogs were quick to blame the Tea Party for each and every violent incident around the country. More than one fringe leftist whack-job, impersonating responsible journalists on American television’s most irresponsible cable network, held Sarah Palin personally responsible for the Gabby Giffords shooting in Tucson Arizona. Their supposed rationale was her use of the word target when discussing campaign strategy. Never mind that in similar applications, the word “target” had been used frequently by members of the Democratic Party. Members of the institutionalized “progressive” left smear machine somehow forgot to inform the public that “target” was first used as political jargon by 1980 Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale’s political strategist Bob Beckel.

A review of the visitor’s log confirms that AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and former SEIU President Andy Stern have been frequent visitors to the White House. SEIU alone spent approximately $60.7 million to help elect Barack Obama to the White House in 2008. SEIU expects a return on their investment. Barack Obama was quick to embrace the Occupy movement when he saw his poll numbers sliding.

Before this November’s elections American voters should duly note such connections.

In case you haven’t noticed, or have yet to become fully convinced, bias within the institutionalized “progressive” left media is both very real and pervasive. With the presidential general election campaign about to get into full swing, expect it to get much, much worse. Truth coming from the institutionalized “progressive” left’s smear machine is as likely as them reporting that Elizabeth Warren can’t prove she has Cherokee blood in her veins.

Unions and the Fallacy Behind Them

Written November 18, 2011

Generations of people have grown up with the misconceptions that unions are the God’s of the people, by the people for the people. Like the current state of affairs with our government nothing could be further from the truth. Union heads are strong supporters of the current administration with huge contributions to Obama’s campaign. There is a method to their madness and while they contribute to and help to finance the demonstrations we see daily their main focus goes much deeper

Collective bargaining, wages, and tenure are just a few of the issues addressed by Union leaders. They appear to be the allies for the common folk, the middle or lower class; they have a history of making lives better by obtaining benefits, wages, and profit sharing for all union employees. Thus you would be inclined to believe union officials are your best friends. If you are one of the many people who live in this country and find this to be true you may want to read on.

Although collective bargaining for wages, benefits, and working conditions sounds good, the corruption seriously outweighs the benefits. Richard Trumka, head of the AFL-CIO has publically issued a warning to democrats should they fail to fight for labor unions as determined by him. Trumka: “If lawmakers don’t push hard enough to stem attacks on labor’s interests, workers will abandon the party in the 2012 election.”
Meanwhile, while AFL-CIO head Trumka was flirting with National Socialism, recently retired SEIU president Andy Stern was kissing up to socialism’s more famous sister, Communism, saying, “Workers of the world unite – it’s not just a slogan anymore. It’s the way we’re gonna have to do our work.” But let’s get back to Richard Trumka.

Richard Trumka has his own agenda and rest assured his visions of the future leave little room for confusion.. “As president of the United Mine Workers (UMW) union, Trumka led multiple violent strikes. Trumka’s fiery rhetoric often appeared to condone militancy and violence, especially against workers who dared to continue to provide for their families by working during a strike. As a Virginia judge ruled in 1989, “violent activities are being organized, orchestrated and encouraged by the leadership of this union.” Take the murder of Eddie York, a nonunion contractor, who was shot in the back of the head and killed while leaving a worksite in 1993. Trumka and other UMW officials were charged in a $27 million wrongful death suit by Eddie York’s widow. After fighting the suit intensely for four years, UMW lawyers settled suddenly in 1997 — just two days after the judge in the case ruled evidence in the criminal trial would be admitted. Later, as Secretary-Treasurer of the AFL-CIO, Trumka pleaded the Fifth Amendment before Congress and a court-appointed election monitor over his role in an illegal fundraising scheme to benefit the Teamsters president Ron Carey’s re-election. Trumka has remained in his position ever since despite an AFL-CIO rule (adopted in 1957) which held that union officials who plead the Fifth have “no right to continue to hold office” in the union umbrella organization.” (Cote)

On the orders of the United Mine Workers (UMW), 16,000 miners went on strike in 1993. One subcontractor, Eddie York (who was not a UMW member), decided it was important to support his wife and three children and crossed picket lines to get to his job. He was shot in the head as he left the job site to go home. UMW President Richard Trumka (now Secretary-Treasurer at the AFL-CIO) told The Washington Times that “if you strike a match and put your finger in, common sense tells you you’re going to burn your finger.” UMW strike captain Jerry Dale Lowe was found guilty of weapons charges and conspiracy in York’s death, and York’s widow Wanda sued the union for her husband’s wrongful death. The UMW fought the lawsuit for four years, but settled with Wanda York only two days after federal prosecutors announced that they would share evidence from the criminal trial with York’s attorneys.” (Washington Examiner).

More recently the occupy Wall Street Protesters have support of Union leaders. The violence for many of them is a means to an end of capitalism as we know it. They have their own agenda it is not one that most of us would consider the American Way. They in no way stand for Truth and Justice and Freedom for all – theirs is a way that finds its resolution in violence and by taking what does not belong to them.

Congress Passes 3 Trade Agreements "and" TAA Funding Bill

Both chambers of Congress passed all three free trade agreements on Wednesday, along with the Trade Adjustment Assistance bill. (TAA) While the Colombia, South Korea and Panama trade agreements were fast-tracked through Congress in an apparent move to appease President Obama’s wishes for a photo-op with the S.Korean President whom is visiting the White House today, there was some Democratic opposition to the agreements. Most House Republicans supported the trade agreements while many House Democrats opposed them, while in the Senate several Democrats joined with Republicans to get the bills passed and sent to the President for signing into law.

The exact vote totals were 278-151 for South Korea, 300-129 for Panama and 262-167 for Colombia. The Senate votes were 83-15 for Korea, 77-22 for Panama and 66-33 for Colombia.

One aspect of the free trade agreements that seems to be lost in the shuffle is that these trade agreements were originally signed by President G.W.Bush and sat on President Obama’s desk for three years before being sent to Congress. If these trade agreements will indeed create millions of jobs for Americans as is being stated by President Obama as “a major win for American workers and businesses,” then the long delay in sending them to Congress is simply inexcusable. What could have been behind the delay? What was Obama angling for? Was he holding these free trade agreements hostage for some form of political advantage?

Ex-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded that the House vote on the Senate-passed China Currency bill which House Republican leaders now oppose. In a move that explains why Barack Obama delayed in trying to move these trade bills, we see that in order to address Democratic objections to the deals, the White House demanded linking the trade bills to extension of a Kennedy-era program that helps workers displaced by foreign competition with retraining and financial aid. The Senate went along, and the House passed it Wednesday, 307-122. (TAA) The FAA bill (hr 2832) is a gift to Obama and the Democrat’s UNION bed-pals as I wrote about here.

The trade agreements include Panama, South Korea and Colombia. This deal now includes gifts for Unions via the Dept. of Labor’s innocuous-sounding TAA bill. (Trade Adjustment Assistance) These trade agreements have been sitting on Barack Obama’s desk since 2009 when the G.W. Bush administration finalized them. Why the long delay in sending them to Congress for debate and passage? If we look at the orginally linked article above, we see that just last week big labor Unions vehemently opposed these trade agreements:

“The deal sets up a bruising fight within the Democratic caucuses in the House and Senate, which are divided over trade. Most of organized labor opposes all three trade deals, which were negotiated by the Bush administration and have been dormant for years.” (emphasis mine)

So there we see big labor screaming objections to the free trade agreements that Obama said would be a major win for American business and workers.

So just how could the TAA bill be interpreted as a gift for Unions and big labor? First of all, after Congress agreed to the passage of the TAA bill, Unions then stopped protesting these trade agreements. Isn’t that a coincidence? Secondly, just what is the TAA bill? Again I refer to my previous article on the TAA bill:

Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) help trade-affected workers who have lost their jobs as a result of increased imports or shifts in production out of the United States. Certified individuals may be eligible to receive one or more program benefits and services depending on what is needed to return them to employment. (sounds good enough there)

First of all this TAA program is run by Obama appointee Hilda Solis‘ dept of labor–They will be saying who gets these benefits. Apparently if you do not belong to a GROUP, ( think union) don’t bother filing for any of these benefits, as we see next:

To obtain TAA or ATAA services and benefits, a group of workers must first file a petition with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance (OTAA) requesting certification as workers adversely affected by foreign trade. If certified, each worker in the group may then apply separately for individual services and benefits through their local One-Stop Career Center. ( emphasis mine)

This points to as to why unions are all of a sudden happy with these trade agreements. Hilda Solis is in charge of dishing out these “benefits.” Her main agenda of 2010 was stated as to enact some 90 new rules and regulations to give more power to unions. Now Solis and her dept of labor can also hand out plenty of cash to her beloved Unions thanks to the TAA payouts stuffed into the trade agreements. Did I mention that her father was a teamsters shop steward in Mexico? No conflict of interest there, when she was appointed to head the Dept of Labor, especially seeing that she was a board member of the pro-union American Rights at Work.

. A few more interesting TAA benefits from their website:

Up to 130 weeks of cash payments for workers enrolled in full-time training Up to 156 weeks of cash payments if the worker is also enrolled in remedial or prerequisite training.

Job Search Allowances 100% of allowable costs, up to $1,500

Job Search Allowances 90% of allowable costs, up to $ 1,250

Relocation Allowances 100% of allowable costs Provides an additional lump sum payment of up to $1,500

What is the cap on how many taxpayer dollars will be funneled to the “groups” under the FAA bill? How much will we be borrowing to pay for it? Did Barack Obama hold all three free trade agreements hostage by demanding the Union payoff that is innocently disguised as the TAA bill? Apparently so as we see here in an article from TheHill.com:

Under an agreement with the Senate and the White House, House GOP leaders will call a vote on a renewal of Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) legislation on Wednesday, immediately after the House approves trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.

Extending TAA, which provides health insurance, worker training and other benefits to U.S. workers negatively affected by foreign trade, has been a Democratic priority, and the Obama administration for months refused to submit the three trade deals for congressional ratification without assurances from Republican leaders that the adjustment assistance would be renewed. The TAA program expired in February.

In summary, we saw that Barack Obama held the free trade agreements hostage in able to give (the TAA bill) big Union labor massive kickbacks, which were also demanded by Democrats in Congress. My own Florida Congressman Dennis Ross summed it up quite well, in a letter to Speaker Boehner, which fell on deaf ears:

In June, freshman Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Fla.) circulated a letter to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) urging him not to allow Democrats to “hold hostage” trade agreements to win passage of the TAA, which he likened to “welfare spending” and socialism.

Footnote: Didn’t Congress promise to make all legislation available to We the People a minimum of three days prior to passage? While the original bill was available online for years, the changes made to it were not made available 3 days prior to passage. You can see the bill here.

Liz Berry sums it up pretty well in her blog post titled: The American Majority Were Officially Sold Out Today.

While many pundits say that Republicans have supported the TAA bill in the past, they did not in fact support the 172 changes mostly made by Senate Democrats to this latest version of the TAA bill. This is what happens when America refuses to pay attention to what Congress is doing today, while also ignoring what many of us are trying to warn them about, while these bills are being “fast-tracked through Congress for Obama’s photo-op with the President of S.Korea” today. 2012 just can’t get here fast enough.

Will the OWS Protesters Protest Obama's Newest Corporate Government Bank ?

The Wall Street protesters are demanding jobs, not more big bank bailouts, as signs across America have shown us last weekend.

  The Occupiers hate banks, they hate evil corporations and they hate the government manipulators in Congress. ( supposedly) I wonder how they feel about the creation of a brand new government bank created solely for the purpose of politicians stashing away billions of our tax dollars to use for Union payoffs and vote-buying to further empower themselves?  Surely these protesters will speak up against another big corporate government bank stealing tax dollars for their own self-interests, while non-politically connected folks go without jobs, right?  Well, it turns out that these protesters are made to look like simplistic hypocrites when we discover that they, and many of their sister protesters and allies are promoting the very creation of another evil bank, this one run by their government as nothing more than a giant slush fund for the current Liberal rulers in Congress and the White House. What is the name of this bank you ask? Who is creating this bank and how can they get away with it? Have these innocent grassroots protesters been duped ?  I can answer all of those questions in one simple but true statement: The creation of this new bank is hidden in Barack Obama’s American Jobs Act. It is called, The American Infrastructure Financing Authority or AIFA. From bondbuyer.com we see the following explanation:

“The jobs bill would create the American Infrastructure Financing Authority as a wholly owned government corporation that would “provide direct loans and loan guarantees to facilitate investment in economically viable infrastructure projects of regional or national significance,” according to administration officials.” ( emphasis mine)

As we previously discovered that Congress has shown the pattern of  illegally creating their own slush fund/loan sharking banks such as the FFB, it should be noted that nowhere in our Constitution is Congress given the authority to create any banks, or financing authorities. Keeping in mind that many of the Green Energy loans (think Solyndra) were given out by the above-mentioned illegal FFB as an underhanded way to avoid full inspection by Congress and avoid accountability to We the People,  it boggles the mind to see the Wall Street occupiers and sister groups promoting Obama’s fake jobs bill with a new evil banking corporation created right in it.  Low and behold, that proof can be found right here.  The Communist Party USA, The AFL-CIO, Barack Obama’s moveon.org all support Obama’s jobs bill and the Occupy Wall Street protests. In the jobs bill is the creation of an evil corporate bank which is created solely to pay off the biggest Transportation Union in the country, the AFL-CIO.  My what a coincidence!

The Occupiers would surely object to a President who wants to take billions of tax dollars to use as a political slush fund right? Has anyone yet to see any signs at the Occupy Park Benches Across America Union supported protests? How about the fact that the AFL-CIO big Union vote-buying machine is sleeping right next to them while also spending millions of Union dues dollars to promote Obama’s newest evil corporate bank? Will this new bank somehow translate into jobs for the supposed grassroots folks down at Wall Street, as Obama has them  apparently duped into believing? The fact that Obama already took some $836 billion tax dollars in the Stimulus fraud and yet we still see unemployment at 9.1% somehow seems to escape the Occupiers.  If not, they would have signs protesting the next half a billion dollars being stolen to pay back their protest-bed-pals at the AFL-CIO, while creating a new big corporate bank. The creation of the AIFA is a long-term planned theft of tax dollars to pay off Unions, as we see by the mandates for funding in it:

“The bank would be capitalized with a $10 billion congressional appropriation for its first two years. Loans would go to projects of  at least $100 million, or **$25 million** in rural areas. The loan or loan guarantee could finance no more than 50% of the project’s cost. The base interest rate on a direct loan would be at least the rate on Treasury debt with a similar maturity.” ( emphasis mine)

 

First we see that $10 billion tax dollars will be ‘loaned out” in first two years. What about in the future?  Is this a bottomless black money pit? Billions upon billions will continue to be shuffled into this new AIFA “bank” as we see from The Patriot Update:

In its first two years, AIFA would rake in $10 billion in congressional appropriations; $20 billion over the next seven years; and $50 billion per fiscal year after that. How would Obama ensure the loan review process is protected from special interest favor-trading and White House meddling? If the ongoing, half-billion-dollar stimulus-funded Solyndra solar company loan debacle is any indication, the answer is: not very well. (emphasis mine)

In case some of our readers are not familiar as to who exactly will “qualify” for all these new jobs that this “bank” will supposedly create, you need to read the new law created by the Obama administration that now mandates that every single federal construction contract over the above stated **$25 million tax dollars** MUST BE USE UNION LABOR.  Didn’t know that fact? Then read this. The  bottom line is that if the out of work Occupiers do not pay the Unions dues and become a member of  their AFL-CIO- OWS-bedpals , they are locked out of even a chance to get a job from Obama’s jobs bill!  How about it Occupiers?

Instead of chanting “Four more years!, maybe the Occupy protesters  should draw up some signs stating that they are against Obama’s jobs bill which creates the big evil corporate bank AIFA, which is loaded with graft and billions of dollars for their new pal,  Richard Trumka, the current head of the AFL-CIO.  Until we see that, the “Occupy movement”  is nothing more than a bunch of hypocritical nonsense that has been hijacked by the Obama2012 reelection campaign and his Union vote-buying pals. So, lets all head on up to our nation’s capitol and protest Obama’s jobs bill shall we? 

 

Obama Begins "Pass the Fake Jobs Bill" Campaign Today

The Classless Community Organizer will hit the campaign trail today to promote his misnamed American Jobs Act. Barack Obama will start off with another speech/publicity event from the rose garden on Monday morning. “Pass this bill now without reading it,” and “This is not just another failed stimulus bill,” will surely be two messages he will try to fool the people with, just for starters. Throw in a heavy dose of ” I am not responsible for the Liberal Democrats debt-laden spending spree of the last five years” and “Republicans want to kill babies and old people if they try to oppose this bill”  talking points memo he sends out to his Liberal media propagandists on a daily basis. Obama’s timeline for today’s propaganda event is quite enlightening, along with the subsequent plans to hit the campaign trail once again to organize the community to show support for a plan that has yet to be revealed.

While the actual bill will not be sent to Congress until tonight, President Obama didn’t waste any time trying to get public support for the plan, and continues this same pattern of cloudy bloviation in his recently announced community organizing schedule to promote his jobs plans this week.

First he made the big speech to a joint session of Congress that is supposed to be reserved for The State of the Union address and real national legislative emergencies. He essentially gets up on the bully pulpit and demands Congress to pass a bill they have yet to see or read. Right after said speech, he runs right over to Richmond, VA. to sell his undefined plan in another staged community organizing rally. Today, he will hold an event in the Rose Garden to again promote a bill that will not be sent to Congress until tonight, when they will actually be able to see what is in the bill. What kind of a publicity stunt can we expect to witness in the Rose Garden event? According to thehill.com:

On Monday, Obama will hold an event in the Rose Garden, an official said, where he “will call on Congress to pass the bill, which contains the kinds of proposals to grow the economy and create jobs that have been supported by both parties in the past.” (emphasis mine)

In keeping with Obama’s pattern of using people as stage props to imply that there is widespread support for his proposals, Obama will trot out the people who will supposedly benefit from this bill: UNIONS. Yes, there is an election coming up in 2012, and the desperate Barack Obama needs a few hundred million more Union dollars to buy his reelection, thus the Rose Garden event today, with subsequent campaign trips to promote it later on this week. ( which taxpayers will fund, of course)

 

“He will be joined at the Rose Garden event by people from across the country who would benefit from the American Jobs Act, including teachers, police officers, firefighters, construction workers, small business owners and veterans,” a White House official said.

   After the Rose Garden Hollywood-style staged theatrical event, Barack Hussein Obama will then send the bill to Congress, (will the CBO ever be given the time to score this bill completely, unlike many of the fake Democrats past stunts?) and then he will head to Ohio and North Carolina to further try to make America believe that the largely stage-prop Union members he will be speaking to there represent ALL Americans in supporting another failed attempt at a Keynesian stimulus bill. This complete Hollywood stage act reminds me of another serious breach of integrity thrust upon Americans in a blatant attempt to tax and steal more money from the workers of America: Al Gore’s now totally debunked Climate Change propaganda movie, An Inconvenient Truth. 

     Why is all this time and effort being spent to promote a jobs bill, if it is truly a good thing for all Americans? Simply put, because if you tell a lie often enough there is hope that the people will eventually believe it. While it took Americans years to understand the grand lie that Al Gore’s whole life is based upon to enrich himself and the Democrats through his Climate Change movie,  An Inconvenient Truth,  Obama now knows that his fake jobs bill, once dissected by Republicans will not have any support from taxpaying Americans that have already seen massive explosions in national debt to the tune of over $4 trillion dollars since Obama took over the White House. Thus the demand to hurry, hurry pass this bill today coming from Obama and the fake Democrats of Congress.

     It isn’t just Obama that needs those hundreds of millions of campaign donations from the Unions in 2012. His far left Liberal pals in Congress have to feed  at that very same taxpayer-funded campaign trough too in 2012. Thus I expect Obama to receive huge support from the Liberals in Congress for this bill, if only to use it as a way to further bash conservatives. Tell the lies enough times, have the Liberal media repeat them over and over, and add a dash of ” It is all the Republicans fault” and  Obama mistakenly hopes to secure more 2012 reelection funding for himself and far left Liberals through his fake jobs bill. Americans have seen this act before and Obama is only fooling himself here. Oh, and let’s have the taxpayers fund it all, from the next two propaganda stops in North Carolina and Ohio right up to the fact that the taxpayers are funding the very same public sector UNIONS that Obama will trot out in order to make Americans think this fake jobs bill will actually create new jobs.  Right,  throwing millions more tax dollars to prop up bloated Union pension plans and their lavash lifetime healthcare benefits in order to buy the union vote is somehow supposed to be creating jobs. That, and giving unemployed workers  millions more in unemployment payments. That is some jobs plan, Mr. President!

Wisconsin Protests Go Nationwide: The Radical Agenda

Today we are being told that the Union protests will spread across the nation. I believe this could be the start of what Glenn Beck has exposed as self-professed Communist activist Van Jones’  top down, bottom up, inside out theory of radically transforming America. Remember that these people follow the mantra of , “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”   Mr. Jones was injected into our government as the “Green Jobs Czar” by one Barack Hussein Obama as an appointee with the approval of longtime Chicago confidant Valerie Jarrett, who is now in our very own Whitehouse as a senior advisor  to Barack Obama also. Her prior qualifications to be directly involved in our government today? She is a known Chicago slumlord who was once the Chief of Staff for the King of Chicago corruption, Ex-Mayor Richard Daley. His youngest son, Bill Daley is also Obama’s new Chief of staff in our Whitehouse. Mr Jones can be seen in the photo to the left promoting riots in trying to free a convicted cop killer. This man  certainly gives a  new meaning to the term,”community Organizer.” Mr. Jones is calling for nationwide protests against All state governments starting today, in conjunction with Obama’s heavily State government embedded, UNIONS. This is seizing upon the manufactured crisis in Wisconsin and their mantra of not letting a good crisis go to waste.

Lisa Gras, a very dedicated and informative writer, has put together an excellent article on billionaire economic terrorist George Soros  that should be read  by all Americans who are not familiar with the puppet-master, government overthrowing economic terrorist Mr. George Soros.  http://lisagraas.com/2011/02/05/five-revolutions-backed-by-george-soros/ Soros backed the Liberal Democrats back in the 2008 election, pouring millions into the campaigns of  BOTH  Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. One way or the other, Mr. Soros was guaranteeing that he would have a place at the Whitehouse dinner table and he succeeded. Without Whitehouse support, this word re-known economic terrorist would certainly find himself rotting in an American prison today. Soros was found guilty of insider trading after a 14 year investigation in France* and was fined 2.3 million dollars. This is a man who is also famous for breaking the Bank of England , and was  caught by the SEC here in America  in a stock trading scandal back in 1979, and agreed that he wouldn’t do it anymore. No criminal charges were filed there. The laws about insider trading differ greatly from one country to another. Unlike American law, French law does not provide for civil enforcement actions in insider trading cases; they may be pursued here only as criminal matters. Mr Soros is also known as a man without a country today, yet he is now spending most of his time here in the United States.

In the above referenced article by Lisa Gras, that well-researched and very informative article shows us how George Soros has been undermining governments across the globe since 1984, leading right to the doorstep of the recent Middle East upheaval. What does this have to do with  the current Wisconsin protests, Van Jones, Richard Trumka and Barack Hussein Obama and now the Communist Party USA ?  Apparently more than most people currently know in this country today. Every one of the countries that George Soros was involved in written in Lisa’s article have one thing in common:  The overthrowing of governments through George Soros financed quasi-covert political operations. This also always involves the corruption of the Media, as Soros has poured millions of dollars into newspapers, Tv stations, media networks, etc. He recently gave huge amountss of s=csahs to leftist groups, such as MoveOn.org and The Huffington Post. Here you can see how they have signed up today to promote the protests across America. http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/index.html?action_id=238 This is a bid to protect the progressive movement’s power base for the 2012 elections, folks, nothing more. These puppets could care less about the American people and their quality of life.  Soros also seems to monitor political situations worldwide , and then has shown the uncanny ability to sow the seeds of discontent among the people of those countries at just the right time, resulting in “the fundamental transformation” of those countries and new governments being formed. With our States rights blocking the Federal Government’s intrusions into their own governments, the George Soros funded Liberal agenda can not advance their plans and they know this. Thus they are desperately trying to turn the Wisconsin budget crisis into a national issue. For those of you blindly worshipping Mr. Barack Hussein Obama still today, I shall include a very relative direct quote from Mr. Obama right here and right now:

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America

While that now famous statement, uttered at the beginning of candidate Obama’s speech at The University of Missouri, on Feb. 19th, 2008, seemed relatively harmless at the time, when we look at the Soros pattern of undermining governments across the globe, coupled with what we see happening in America today, that statement should be very disconcerting to even the most naive of Americans today.  For the Liberal deniers of reality that want to say Obama didn’t say that,  here is the video link, provided  just to prove it.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ffwY74XbS4 The problem that I have with the Obama/Soros transformation of America motto, is that it is as Anti-American at it’s roots as another group, cpusa.org , that is being rallied to join the protest today by the Communist Van Jones. Right on their homepage they announce their participation in today’s protests.  His rallying cry across the leftist stratosphere here in America to join with their Union brothers today in the protests contained another covert codeword for ratcheting up these protests across America: Solidarity. These radical Anti-Americans are now trying to turn this country into another mish mash of Communists/Socialist power brokers just like in the dysfunctional Afrika we see today. The divide and conquer theory is being heavily applied here and it is being ratcheted up today across America in the attempted dismantling of State Sovereignty. Thus the importance of Governor Scott Walker and others, in standing their ground against the Unions, Liberals, Socialists and Communists marching to the beat of George Soros, Barack Obama, Van Jones, Richard Trumka and their very clear Anti-American agenda.

I pray there will be no violence in these radical, State government protests today that clearly represent a clear and present danger to America and her people. These paid George Soros puppets, Unions thugs, Liberal Socialists and Communists will be out in force today with the direct support of todays Democratic Party. Remember this in 2012.  Since Barack Obama has not denounced this form of domestic terrorism upon the working taxpayers of America, we must only conclude one thing:  He supports it 100%. This is how he plans on “Winning the Future” here in America, starting today.

Wisconsin Protest: Jackass of the Week Award.

Wisconsin State Senator Jon Erpenbach (D- of course) has been all over the news this past week, as he is one of the Democrats in Wisconsin that ran out on their duly sworn oaths of office that mandates that they show up in the Wisconsin State Legislature and actually do the job they are being paid to do. For this type of action, plus his total denial of reality in his press statements, (provided below) I have bestowed upon him the dishonor of the Jackass of the Week Award!

There is your Jackass of the Week folks. Let me be clear on one point before I lay out the criteria as to why he gets this dishonor. I see other websites and online news groups being pressured and bullied when putting up public information on our elected representatives.This game of childish hide and seek from the people they serve has to stop. The people have the right to know who is doing what, and how to identify them so when they see them they can address the issues that concern them.

We have thousands of elected Tyrants across the land that refuse to answer their taxpayer funded telephones, refuse to answer emails and letters and think they can just hide from them. If you don’t want to talk and/or listen to the people you serve, then get the hell out of government, it is that simple. We will not tolerate this kind of oppression any longer. We will be heard and you will not stop us from sahring information that shows your true colors. Clear enough?  So there is the Jackasses picture for all to see, in case you run into him while he is hiding in some hotel, bar, restaurant, or wherever these sad examples of the Wisconsin Senate Democrats are hiding.  Tell him to get back to work, or recall him and the rest of these self-important obstructionists.

I found a very interesting article over at  FOX6NOW.com* that contained a quote from Mr. Erpenbach. In reading this quote, I discovered that this man is the same age as me, and I found myself wondering how he could make such misleading and false statements on national TV. Is he really this out of touch with reality, or just plain ignorant ?

“Democratic Sen. Jon Erpenbach said he and his colleagues wouldn’t return until Walker compromised.” and went even further into his complete denial of reality with the statement, “It’s not so much the Democrats holding things up,” Erpenbach said. “It’s really a matter of Gov. Walker holding things up.” (Emphasis mine)

How could  it be that Governor Walker is holding things up, when you are the ones acting childish and irresponsibly, in running and hiding out in another state?  Talk about twisting the facts around there. When we hear ridiculous statements like these, we must always consider the source. This man was born in 1961, grew up in Wisconsin, then did 2 years at a college in Oshkosh. ( no degree mentioned in his bio) After that, he worked for 3 Wisconsin radio stations, then went on to work in the State Assembly and Senate in media relations and as a communications director. Yes that is in bold type, because that is an amazing bit of information considering his recent statements that earned him the Jackass of the Week award here. Media relations and Communications Director? Can you say spin doctor? How about propagandist?  This guy must be a hell of a spin doctor to get elected to the Wisconsin senate with what I view as zero real world accomplishments or any proven skills in anything other than media propaganda artistry, which is also a nice word for being a skilled liar.

Now that we have taken a closer look at this man’s accomplishments in life,( or lack thereof) take another look at his face up there. Here we see nothing more than a petty propagandist who represents the Democratic Party of today, nothing more.  How in the hell he got elected to the Wisconsin Senate was truly a mystery to me at first glance. In seeing his background in media spin, and the Liberal  Democratic Party he represents today, it certainly doesn’t seem like such a mystery any more.

Congratulations Senator Erpenbach, on winnng the Jackass of the Week award. We will be watching for your future media spin interviews from wherever you are cowering down these days to hide from doing your sworn duties in the Wisconsin Senate. Who knows, maybe you will win the Jackass of the Year award before your irresponsible actions come  to a head up in Wisconsin. Now grow up, get back to your duly sworn duties in Wisconsin and stop acting like such a disgusting, pathetic,disingenuous two year old !  The people of Wisconsin deserve better than this. And one more thing,  your party LOST the elections. Elections have consequences, as we have all been told for the last four years of tyrannical Democratic rule in this country. Remember that?

Bust the Unions ? You Betcha!

      Bust all public sector Unions and bar them from the taxpayer’s wallet, and do it today. It is time to put this circus to bed. Democracy does not include 10% of the population forcing their will on the majority of the people who pay their salaries. It is that simple.

 PhotoStory1   <-  Click the link here to see some of the lovely misfits and nasty rhetoric on display courtesy of these Union’s example of the so-called civil discourse President Obama called for recently. The wonderful people of Wisconsin surely must be very embarrassed with this circus being shown across the country. To be fair, Unions only make up about 10% of the population today, but this kind of lunacy and ugliness should be denounced by everyone in Wisconsin and across America. Many readers here will be asking themselves why they do not see this nastiness and disrespect on the news today?  The news media seem content to paint the Unions as representing all of the working people in America today. That couldn’t be further from the truth and they know it, yet they still refuse to show the people the real types of  tactics and nastiness the Unions are using up in Wisconsin. That is why I took the time to create a little slice of truth up there in that slide show.

Today there have been hints of threatened violence to come in Wisconsin, if Governor Walker does not bend to their demands. One such threat contained the statement, “I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going. Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary getting boots on the ground and getting bloody.”  The person who uttered that?  U. S.Congressman, Mike Capuano. (D-MA)   The nasty, thug-faced,  head of the AFL-CIO, Richard Trumka marched right into the fray to put in his two cents in trying to protect his lavish Union head lifestyle and bargaining power. Do not forget the massive Union Obamacare waivers Trumka’s thugs just received. That is right, Obama decided these same Unions will not have to live under the same healthcare laws as the rest of the working people. A total of over 2 million workers are now safe from Obamacare, thanks to those “special waivers.” Anyone who thinks the DNC and Obama in particular, doesn’t expect payback for those “special waivers” in the 2012 elections is either very naive, or just plain stupid.

This battle is not over worker’s rights, as the media would like you to believe. This is a battle over the DNC being allowed to control and influence elections through Union political activities and campaign funding. Without the Union graft and bribery, the DNC will be in even worse shape in 2012, than it was during the historic beating they received in 2010. The DNC is fighting for the life of it’s base elections engineering Brownshirt Union army. Without Unions taking member’s dues and using them to buy elections and pay get out the vote operations, the DNC can forget about “Winning The Future.” in 2012 and beyond.  Yes ,it is that simple. Obama didn’t sic his attack dogs from OFA, (Organizing for America) MoveOn.org, Think Progress, Media Matters and DailyKos on Governor Walker to protect the poor working folks up in Wisconsin. No Sir, this Community Organizer in Chief is trying to cover his own bet on winning another term in 2012. Obama has proven to be hugely incompetent in running this country, but if there is one thing he does know, it’s how to organize sheep to control and win elections through any means necessary. Why do you think he created the pathetically mis-named Organizing for America?

Scott Walker was elected to be the Governor of Wisconsin. His duties include a mandatory balancing of the budget. If Barack Husein Obama doesn’t approve of that, I will have to say,” I,m sorry Barry, but we won the elections, and elections have consequences.” It’s high time Obama starts acting a little more like a President instead of a low-life community organizer making a living blackmailing corporations, businesses, and now the blackmailing and bullying of States. Governor Walker is going to pass a balanced budget come hell or high water people. That is something Obama and the Democrats have proven to have no knowledge of today. When is the last time our federal government actually passed a budget, let alone a balanced one ? We rang up the debt all of last year without any semblance of a budget. 5 months into this year and again we have no budget, and with Democrats still in charge of the Senate getting one passed any time soon will be impossible. Of course, the Democrats, led by Obama, have proven that they do not mind running the country on illegal continuing resolutions. Those blank checks on the taxpayer’s account allow them to pile on another trillion and a half in debt with very little accountability. The honorable Scott Walker will not let that happen to the people of Wisconsin, Union thugs and obstructionist Democrats be damned.
