U.K. Riots are Not Grass Roots

On Saturday, tens of thousands of  U.K. protesters marched, firebombed and destroyed property to show that their disagreement with cuts that the British government has to make to keep it’s deficits in-check. As this pressTV video illustrates, it’s actually a UNION-organized event.

Of course, Americans have nothing to fear. “That could never happen here!” Right? .. right?.. Of course not .. well except that thing in Wisconsin or even more recently, Stephen Lerner’s push to have unions, community organizations and those that would follow them – create yet another financial crisis.

I imagine the British people didn’t think this kind of chaos could occur in the heart of their country either, but it did.

These things didn’t come from a few middle-class families getting together to protect a hard-earned right. These acts are being performed by greedy citizens that do not understand that they have simply run out of “other people’s money”.  The government has taxed “the rich” and corporations to the point that they have begun hoarding cash, moving operations, their wealth, and in some cases themselves out of the country.

As tax revenues diminish due to overly progressive taxation, the government loses its ability to provide the services to which these selfish protesters feel they are entitled. And we all know what spoiled little children do when they don’t get there way.. (if you don’t –  see: that video at the top of the article).

 

Desperate Strokes for Union Folks: Collapse J.P.Morgan, Create Housing Chaos.

Desperate Strokes for Union Folks;  Unions turn to trying to use mortgage holders to fight for power and disruption, just like they used teachers, firemen and policemen in Madison, Wisconsin.

SEUI operative/anarchist and career rabble-rouser Stephen Lerner was exposed recently in theblaze.com article, in trying to force the collapse and disruption of everything from banks to wall street to government, by calling on home mortgage holders to wage a de-facto strike by refusing to pay their mortgages and staying in their homes during the current mortgage crisis. Make no mistake folks, this is an act of domestic terrorism in a desperate move  by Union operatives to hide the fact that the public sector Unions are bankrupting States across America. Mr. Lerner can be heard in the following audio clip trying to champion the recent Madison Union thuggery as some sort of success model. My question to him would be, just what did you accomplish in Madison, other than exposing Union thuggery and hypocrisy?

The answer to that question, is absolutely nothing, other than proving yourselves to be nasty hypocrites with no respect for true Democracy in America.  Collective Bargaining  and bullying of states coffers to buy Democratic votes and enrich yourselves is a thing of the past in Wisconsin, and soon to be in the rest of the states that want to balance their budgets and restore fiscal sanity.  Listen to the following tape of Mr. Lerner’s plans that reveals the true modus operandi, or method of operation, of  Union operatives today, as it is quite telling and oh-so-informative:

Take note that Mr. Lerner is also on record as to making several visits to the Whitehouse recently. Isn’t that interesting ?

The Union’s outrageous salary, extravagant pension and medical plans have been exposed across the nation today, and now the Unions have to try to effect some sort of damage control, so they are trying to recruit home mortgage holders to do their dirty work here. For those of you reading this that are thinking of falling for this ploy, I have to ask you how many mortgage restructuring plans and other help for mortgage holders to stay in their homes are already available today? Plenty. For those of you who were unqualified to own a home in the first place, yet got loans knowing damn well you couldn’t afford them in the first place due to any one of the numerous Fannie and Freddie everyone deserves a house whether they can afford it or not schemes, I say tough ! Get out and get an apartment, or increase your income so you can afford to pay the mortgage payments, period. This is America, where when you want something,  you get out and work for it, not ask the government to give it to you at the expense of the taxpayers. Clear enough?

Update 3/28/11 Rep. Jason Cheffetz has written a letter to the DOJ Chief Holder demanding an investigation here. While the average informed, concerned citizen figures Holder will refuse to take a serious look into Lerner’s attempt at Economic Terrorism through innocent mortgage holders, there is an interesting CC ( for carbon copy) at the bottom of this letter.

cc:  The Honorable Darrell Issa, Chairman
cc:  The Honorable Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Minority Member
Maybe the House Oversight Committee will investigate this and further expose the agenda here. Also, many people are reporting that Lerner is an Ex-SEIU executive, yet when Glenn Beck called  Lerner’s number at the SEIU, it was still intact and said he was on some sort of temporary leave. This could be a ploy to try to distance himself from the SEIU because of their reputation of bullying and thuggery. They need to make him appear to be nothing more than a concerned citizen while he tries to convince innocent mortgage holders to crash banks and wall street, and further destroy a fragile housing market.  This plan looks like it has been in the works for awhile over at SEIU, and for those who doubt their continued  involvement see this. They have been trying to paint banks as predators for several years, all because of their own agenda that pushed financial institutions to make loans to unqualified people.  Creat a mortgage crisis, then be there to help people to fix it. (supposedly)
The bottom line here is that SEIU and other Unions are desperately trying to use innocent mortgage holders to go on a de-facto strike and not pay their mortgages to wreak havoc on the banking industry and Wall Street. Remember the saying, “Never let a good crisis go to waste ?”  This is how Lerner and company hope to take advantage of the current fragile housing  and mortgage industry that has virtually been on the brink of total collapse ever since Activist-laden groups like Acorn and Fannie & Freddie have been telling us that everyone deserves a house, whether they can actually afford it or not. This Lerner terrorism attempt is just a continuation of the long-standing plan to bankrupt America, and collapsing the mortgage and banking industry is just one part of that plan.
Update Via The Blaze: When I wrote that Lerner saying he was no longer with SEIU was a ploy to distance his plot from them, turns out it was right on the money.

Wade Rathke’s Startling Admission: ‘Economic Terrorism’ Engineer Stephen Lerner Is Still on SEIU Payroll

Lerner has not been “fired” by SEIU as they report. He was placed on paid leave last fall to think through his contribution to the union, but was certainly present at the recent international executive board meeting.

Wisconsin Judge Puts New Union Law on Hold

Judge Temporarily Blocks Wisconsin’s New Labor Law- FoxNews.com*

Judge Maryann Sumi listens to arguments during a hearing Friday, March 18, 2011 in Dane County Curcuit Court in Madison, Wis. (AP)

Published March 18, 2011 - Milwakee Journal Sentinel

Judge Maryann Sumi, a Dane County Judge in Wisconsin listens to arguments during a hearing Friday, March 18, 2011 in Dane County Curcuit Court in Madison, Wis. (AP)

judge issued a temporary restraining order Friday blocking the state’s new and contentious collective bargaining law from taking effect, a measure that drew thousands of Union organized thuggish protesters to trash the state Capitol building and sent some Democrats fleeing to Illinois in an illegal attempt to block a vote on it.  Judge Sumi has now scheduled hearings on this ruling for March 29th. In the meantime, the recent law limiting Union bargaining power in the State of Wisconsin will be temporarily put on hold. I find this action to be very hypocritical and to be nothing short of  ludicrous posturing and Liberal denial of true democracy in action. Where was this reportedly far far left Judge, while the Wisconsin Democratic Senators blocked the state legislative process from being implemented while hiding out in Chicago like spanked children running away from their responsibilities? Elections have consequences, and when Democrats lose, ( see Al Gore in the 200 elections) they refuse to accept the election results time and time again.

This is the exact same Union vote-buying sucker-puppet, pay for play Liberal Judge, that refused to order the Madison School District’s Union schoolteachers back to work last month, while ignoring the fact that said Union teacher’s de-facto strike was against Wisconsin law. Here you have hundreds of Union teachers refusing to show up for work for weeks because they do not like what the winning party in the 2010 elections are doing, and this far left *Judge* ( I use that term for her quite loosely) doesn’t call it a strike ?  That is ludicrous!

I also do not agree with Fox News reporting that this will be a “major setback”  for Republicans in Wisconsin. The rule of law will prevail, and to emphasise that point, there should be a recall petition to remove this far left Judge Sumi immediately. It has become very obvious that this Judge has delusions of grandeur concerning the stated authority she holds in her very shameful attempts here in interpreting Wisconsin State laws as she feels fit, instead of as they are written. This Judges misguided ruling will be proven to be a waste of time and money in the end, leaving her exposed as a Union puppet unworthy of sitting on a bench in any courtroom in America, period.

Judge Sumi ruled on this at the request of another Union owned Democratic puppet, District Attorney Ismael Ozane. In another note of irony here,  Wisc. State Senator Erpenbach,  (D) the winner of the CDN Jackass of the Week award** put his hypocritical two-cents in here by stating:  “I would hope the Republicans would take this as an opportunity to sit down with Democrats and negotiate a proposal we could all get behind,”  Oh really? Just how does Democracy work in a state legislature when every single childish Democratic Senator is hiding in a hotel in Chicago ?  It is kind of late to start talking that game, and it is pretty nothing short of ludicrous to mention working together, when you hid out for weeks on end to block Democracy for being implemented in the first place.

Stay tuned, this is far from over, and we will see this self-important Judge and her Democratic co-conspirators made to answer for these kinds of childish, Democracy-ignoring actions. Start the recall petition for this far left Union puppet Judge today, send them a message.

   Update:

The State Journal reports:  Amid uncertainty about a state law that sharply curtails collective bargaining, Madison officials on Friday announced tentative contract extensions with more labor unions and promised a special City Council meeting to approve them next week  The city announced an agreement with its biggest union AFSCME Local 60, on Tuesday, and on Friday announced deals with other AFSCME bargaining units, bus drivers and mechanics, Streets Division and other laborers, stagehands, building and trades and fire supervisors.  The unions ratified the contracts this week.
 
   BINGO ! Play for pay UNION Judge delaying the law so UNIONS can suck more from the taxpayers.
 
Update2 Shes baaaack! Union puppet Judge Sumi puts law on hold again!

Stand With Scott Walker

We at Conservative Daily News have taken up Governor Walker’s cause. Now it’s your turn.

Help send the following message to the Wisconsin Senate and to Governor Scott Walker:

Union dues should be voluntary, and the state should not be in the business of collecting them. Union certification should require a secret ballot. Collective bargaining should not be used to force extravagant pension and health benefits that cripple state budgets.

These common-sense reforms have made the union bosses desperate to disrupt Wisconsin government and overturn an election. They must not be allowed to succeed. In fact, every state should adopt Governor Scott Walker’s common sense reforms.

Democracy Hypocrisy in Madison

I encountered an article over at Townhall.com by Debra Saunders titled, “The CheeseHead Rubicon” that once again shows us just how hypocritical the Liberal Socialists of America ( that hide behind the Democratic in name only party of today) truly are.  In that article* we see another very interesting fact about the State of Wisconsin politics today:

“In 2008, 56 percent of Wisconsin voters supported Barack Obama for president. In 2009, Wisconsin’s Democratic governor and Democratic Legislature passed legislation that raised taxes and fees by about $1.2 billion over three years. State lawmakers approved the bill on the very day it was introduced, with no public hearingRemember that ? ” (emphasis mine)

Fast forward to this past week in the Wisconsin State Assembly, where we saw a totally disgusting display of rudeness by the minority Democrats after the budget bill was passed. The majority of the Democrats were all dressed in red as some kind of intimidation tactic to begin with. Then after the bill was passed, they all started screaming and pointing fingers at Republicans as they filed out of the room. It reminded me of a 3 year old who had been told he had been a  rotten kid all day long and therefore he would not get the ice cream he had asked for. I believe this is unethical conduct for State Legislators, and hope that the disrespectful offenders in this case will all be brought up on  ethics charges.  If that display doesn’t show a lack of proper ethics,I don’t know what does. Put these disrespectful clowns up on stage before the entire Assembly and  play the video for everyone to see. I am very disappointed in the entire State of Wisconsin and  their State Leaders  for allowing this political circus to reach new levels of  ridiculousness in recent days. This has got to be stopped. Make examples of these clowns. Let’s go ahead and put a link of the video of these people in here for all to see. Take a good look at the Wisconsin reps here:

What makes this situation even more disgusting and reprehensible, is the fact exposed in the above quote of how Democrats used their Majority power to pass a tax increase onto the people of Wisconsin of about  $1.2 billion over 3 years back in 2009 with no debate!   They introduced the bill and passed it one the very same day with zero public hearings. A tax increase over a billion dollars was done by the Governor and State Lawmakers with no input from the rest of the Legislators or the people of Wisconsin. The Governor and both houses were under the control of the Democrats at the time. That is hypocrisy to the tenth degree folks. What say the good   folks up there in Wisconsin about that?  Surely the whole state can not be so ignorant as to not call the Liberals on these truths here, can they?

Minority leader Peter Barca proves just how pathetically hypocritical these Democrats are when he stated: ” “The governor and Assembly Republicans are so out of touch that they are willing to resort to these extreme ends to achieve their legislative goals,” Minority Leader Peter Barca said at a news conference.”  Extreme ends Pete? What would you call the episode back in 2009 that we have documented for our readers here? FYI the vote this past week that passed the budget bill was passed at 1 a.m. after 60 hours of solid debate!  Your liberal Democrats and Governor rammed through a billion dollar tax increase after allowing  no debate!

So  here we see a group of extreme hypocrites from the Democratic Party blocking the State Legislature from functioning as the law dictates, while at the same time    rallying  a bunch of  Union cronies with cries of Democracy. Throw in the fact that the majority of the media misfits are strictly on the sides of the Unions here,and we have a hell of a nasty situation.  I  am willing to bet the Wisconsin farm here, that even with all the proof before them, the good people of Wisconsin will take no action against the Democrats, such as recall elections for the Senators illegally hiding to avoid doing their sworn duty. They refuse to open their eyes to the fact that Governor Walker is trying to balance the budget for the sake of all citizens in Wisconsin. We have proven the Democracy Hypocrisy of the Democrats up in Wisconsin right here for all of them to see.  Will they stand behind their duly elected Governor Walker in installing some fiscal sanity for the benefit of everyone, or will they become the next irresponsible State to have to resort to begging for Federal bailouts due to impending bankruptcy?

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.

Wisconsin on Fire: Budget Protest Updates

As most of us here in America know, the Wisconsin Unions are protesting Governor Scott Walker’s proposed State budget, in which he is asking for  Union members to contribute more to their own healthcare premiums and pensions. The Union thuggery in conjunction with certain Media members, has some real tall tales being told about the facts here. They are also adding fuel to the fire so to speak, as these false headlines are misinforming people and could end up complicit in causing rioting that could end in violence or even death. Wisconsin is burning right now, and some of these people seem hell bent of stoking the fire.

Lets examine some of the headlines and see just who is stoking this fire. Here is a lovely lie being shouted as a headline  over at The Nation* by one John Nichols, who deems himself  such an important fire stoker, that he even puts his picture above this headline: (link provided below)

Tens of Thousands Protest Move by Wisconsin’s Governor to Destroy Public Sector Unions*

Someone needs to ask this pot stirrer if he understands what may happen when uninformed people take this headline seriously. Destroy public Unions?  How is asking them to contribute 12.4% to their premium State Health Insurance destroying them? They now pay under 5%. The average private sector worker pays well over 20%, so why is this such an outrageous request here? Just because Union bullying, in conjunction with past Democratic cronyism for votes throughout Wisconsin’s history  has let this imbalance get out of control to the point of State insolvency , doesn’t make it right. Destroying Unions?  Governor Walker is also asking Union members to pay half of their pension contributions. This would bring them into the range of the private sector workers. Since when are State Union workers worth so much more than the very people who are paying their salaries? Newsflash: they aren’t as productive, therefore they should be making less in pay and benefits, not more, period. Back to Mr. Nichols here. Destroying Unions? Wisconsin has a 3.6 billion dollar hole in it’s budget, and if it isn’t fixed soon, the whole State will be bankrupt and then workers who have put in 30 years will be left with nothing in the way of pensions. Walker is trying to save the Unions jobs here. If the budget isn’t balanced soon, there will be layoffs. That is the simple reality here, which Mr. Nichols chooses to ignore. When seeing inflammatory headlines based on a flat out lie, we must always question with boldness and consider the source of any information.

Mr. Nichols is a highly paid operative for the Progressive Party and the DNC. Their agendas are as entwined as a rat snake wrapped around a rabbit.

Mr Nichols has also been involved with writing a few books. The titles alone are all-telling: The Genius of Impeachment and The Death and Life of Great American Journalism: The Media Revolution That Will Begin the World Again.  Lots of revolutionary death and anarchy in his headlines and titles there.  This man is some sort of Anarchist looking for the next riot-starter if you look at his prior writing. Here’s a few more facts about Mr. Nichols. He contributes to The Progressive and is a co-founder of the 100% Progressive Free Press.  Under the disguise of Democracy, Mr. Nichols is making a hell of a living pimping the Progressive agenda, while creating false headlines like the one above. The only problem with the title of his “Free Press” is that they sem to think that only people that should be allowed to speak their minds are progressive operatives such as himself. They allow practically zero  “Free Press” when it comes to any opposition speak. They call this type of  people hypocrites where I come from.

The false message and flat out lies about Governor Walker’s budget plan can be seen in many other leftist-Union supporting sites and supposed news articles. The Huffington Post, ( which lapped up  1 million dollars from the king of revolutionary progressivism one Geroge Soros recently)  has an inflammatory headline stating that the Wisconsin Protests are “intensifying.” As Glenn beck has told the world, this is called “nudging” the ignorants towards a quasi-revolt/riot.  The Huffington Post also provides a link to another fear-monger headline based on a lie: ” Rev. Al Sharpton: Labor Movements Under Attack in Madison, Wisconsin – Republican Governor Scott Walker is wasting time attacking working folks instead of seeking honest, sustainable solutions to his budget shortfalls. It is a con game, pure and simple.”     The worst race-baiting con artist to ever walk the earth, and who also has the nerve to call himself “The Great Reverend Al Sharpton”   is now calling Governor Walker a con man. My that’s rich! Notice the use of the word attackthere in his headline. Violence-promoting, irresponsible headlines across the spectrum of the left for all to see.

The picture on the left here shows Governor Walker appearing to ask just what do you people want me to do here?  The Wisconsin State Constitution contains a clause that requires a balanced budget, period. He is trying to obey the law in balancing said budget. In a totally Democratic State that has seen the past Governor and State legislature ignore the rule of law to the point of a 3.6 billion dollar budget shortfall, how is Walker to blame here?  Walker was elected to shore up Wisconsin’s budget shortfall and to  try to install some fiscal sanity into a situation that was  largely caused by            an insane bunch of  Democrats buying votes with taxpayer dollars through Union cronyism for decades. When these Union members say they have a right to these huge benefit packages, in a way they do. Why would i say that? Because these same Unions are political vote buying schemes today, largely for the Democratic Party. For decades, Unions bought elections for Democrats, and the those same Democrats handed Union members the payback of huge pension benefits with very little member contributions. Same thing  with how much they pay for their health insurance.  So for years Unions have been paying for their members bloated benefits through the Democratic Party. Now Union members think they are “owed” these fiscally impossible huge pay and benefit packages. Only one problem. The people paying for all of this insanity are the taxpayers and they spoke up in 2010 and said enough is enough!   In comes a fiscally conservative Republican Governor who actually takes a realistic look at the budget and sees that spending has to be brought under control. Wisconsin votes also had the smarts to elect Republican majorities in the Senate and House. Now, the people in charge don’t “owe” the Unions anything. This is how a true Democracy is supposed to operate. Walker is bound by law to balance the budget, and he is going to do it for all the people of Wisconsin, not just bow to Union thuggery while ignoring the majority of the people.

One last observation here. yesterday. Police were trying to locate the Democrats who by law are required to do their jobs and vote on this budget proposal. It will pass, make no questions about that. Here is what is really all-telling about why I think they ran and hid like children. If I was facing a mob, borderline riot, that was stirred up by Union operatives and paid media cronies to a fever pitch, I wouldn’t want to be one of the few remaining Democrats there, who these Union members feel “owe” them these bloated salaries and benefits plans, when this budget gets passed. Is it any wonder why Wisconsin Democrats cut and run like a bunch of cowards here? Sooner or later the people of  Wisconsin are going to want their voices heard here too. It is just that they have been out working to pay for this circus, aand can’t take days off of work to march on the Capitol. Kind of strange to see teachers who refuse to work, thus causing the schools to close, while at the same time calling themselves dedicated teachers. If you care about the education of the students, you would be in the classroom, not prohibiting your state capitol from functioning as per the rule of law. Do your job Governor Walker, and thank you for serving notice to the rest of the States facing this kind of problems while looking at their own budgets this year.  Someone had to have the courage to take the first step here, and you and the Wisconsin people are owed a debt of gratitude for facing down the harsh realities of the fiscal insanities brought to us by the leftist Unions and their pals, the Liberal Democrats.
