An interesting exchange occurred on Fox News between Maricopa County (AZ) Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the AFL-CIO’s Stewart Acuff over the AFL-CIO’s call to end federal funding for training Arizona law enforcement agencies.
Acuff has been and continues to be the mouthpiece for the AFL-CIO (a federation of 56 national unions) on a variety of issues, from the nationalization of health care to the job-destroying and hallucinogenically-named Employee Free Choice Act. As of late, though, the AFL-CIO, as well as non-AFL-CIO unions like the SEIU and UFCW, have been using Arizona’s new immigration bill as a means to further their Amnesty for Illegals campaign.
Modernizing the nation’s labor law is critical to expanding union membership—which in turn, will ensure conservatives become a permanent minority, as newly-empowered workers actively engage in political action and demand a new way of doing the nation’s business, like creating an economy that rewards Main Street and not just Wall Street. The freedom to form unions and bargain is critical to the progressive movement—when workers have the tools they need to build a better life, they have the power to improve their communities and the solidarity to make progressive political change throughout the nation.
Here is the clip [via Breitbart TV] of the AFL-CIO Alinskyite, Stewart Acuff, going after Joe Arpaio. As you watch, note Acuff’s grin as he tries (to no avail) to mock Arpaio (using three of Alinky’s tactics) by focusing on a singular statement about the four other police chiefs opposed to SB1070:
Rule 3: Whenever possible, go outside the experience of an opponent. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.
Rule 4: Make opponents live up to their own book of rules. “You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”
Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.
Despite being up against a trained Alinskyite, straight-shooting Sheriff Joe handled himself quite well.

Or more specifically, he has a ‘God problem.’ At least when it comes to voters in South Carolina, for whom Christian faith is often a requirement in a public official. This is simply the reality of the state, not a judgment on religion. But Donald Trump is not credible when it comes | Read More »
