With the end of Paterson’s stint as governor, what is to come of SEIU’s plans for New York?
So who will be the new face of the SEIU’s regressive policy for New York? What politician would be willing to back a union in their money grab from hardworking middle and lower classes of New York?

The SEIU and Union Violence: When will the violence stop, Mr. Stern?
In the world of labor relations, all too often, union violence is commonly associated with unions when they are on strike. In many cases, union violence occurs when an employer maintains his ability to continue his operations using replacement workers while unionized workers are out striking. In some rarer instances, union violence will occur during inter and intra-union battles, with union members occasionally being the | Read More »
A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats. Sort of.
The first part of the title to this post is a very common phrase amongst conservative circles. In it’s simplest form, the phrase means that as long as we can improve the general economy we will improve the lot of everyone actively involved in the economy. Generally, this statement is true. A growing economy grows total compensation for workers at all levels. The phrase is | Read More »
As long as Obama does the SEIU’s bidding, he is and always will be “anti-business”
President Obama has been bending over backwards lately trying to craft himself as “pro-business/pro-free-market.” Almost invoking the spirit of Ayn Rand, Obama has even declared himself to be “an ardent believer in the free market” while making an effort to rebut claims that his policies are “socialist” (a never-before heard statement from a President of the United States, as far as we can tell). In a recent BusinessWeek | Read More »
Obama: “I am a giant hypocrite.”
So it’s official — Andy Stern, head of SEIU, is now on the supposedly bipartisan Fiscal Commission that President Obama has created (via Executive Order, after the Senate failed to pass it) to examine the debt. Let’s get this straight: Obama spends money at a record pace, and then appoints a union chief to a panel to figure out how to fix it? That’s sort | Read More »
Jaime Herrera (R CAND, WA-03): Stealth SEIU Supporter?
Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I am growing quickly disinclined to get dragged into primary political battles for the 2010 election. This is partially because I’m getting to a position where I know some of the folks involved in the campaigns (which is why I’m counting the days until the California primaries are over), and partially because it’s going to be a free-for-all | Read More »
A Smoking Gun. Is the SEIU in Control of Senate Democrats’ Agenda?
As the smoke clears on the bi-partisan blockage of SEIU-radical attorney Craig Becker to a seat on the “independent” National Labor Relations Board, an e-mail sent from a SEIU staffer to Senators on February 3rd is worthy of closer examination as it reveals just how much control the purple behemoth of a union has over the Democrats in Washington. Last week’s e-mail was sent from an SEIU “legislative consultant,” Alison Reardon | Read More »
Craig Becker Defeated
People are policy and while much attention has been focused on the profusion of buffoons and poltroons Obama has installed at the cabinet and sub-cabinet level positions in his administration, the real work of radically changing the character of our government has been entrusted to anonymous apparatchiks. Some of these have bubbled to the top and have resignd: green czar and self identified communist Van | Read More »
An Inside Look at Organizing for America Part II: ACORN for America?
Part II of our inside look at Organizing for America was inspired by the investigative work done by Carol Greenberg Thank you Carol for getting involved and driving this story. Anita MonCrief From a tiny acorn, a mighty oak can grow. With ACORN’s help, Barack Obama “grew” from an ACORN community organizer and instructor, to an ACORN lawyer and ACORN benefactor as a board member | Read More »

An Inside Look at Obama’s Organizing for America Part I
Blogger and activist Carol Greenberg approached me recently with an exclusive look at her work investigating Organizing for America. I was impressed with Carol’s investigative reporting initiative and realized that America needed to see the “Obama Machine” in action. I began working with her on unraveling the truth behind OFA. I have invited Carol to guest blog at my sites this week for Part I. | Read More »
Very Funny Video: Where Everyone Knows the Union Bosses’ Names
For those who don’t know the National Right to Work Foundation, the NRTW is an organization of tireless individuals (including attorneys) who advocate for workers who become victims of union abuse–most notably when unions violate workers’ rights regarding forced union dues. The NRTW posted this hilarious video last week that we thought we’d share with you… [Brought to you in SEIU-purple borders.] —————————– “I bring reason | Read More »
Union Extremist Craig Becker’s Glaring Hatred for Workplace Freedom
Following the near-certain death of the union bosses’ hallucinogenically-named (and growingly unpopular)Employee Free Choice Act, the Democrats in the Senate are looking to throw their union cronies a bone by getting SEIU and AFL-CIO attorney Craig Becker seated to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) quickly, perhaps as soon as this week. As the rules and the policies set forth through the NLRB affect nearly every private-sector | Read More »
SEIU Front Group: America is a ‘Dangerous Idea’…Attacks Continue on America’s Tea Party Movement
Are the leaders of the purple behemoth known as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) opposed to America’s founding principles? Are America’s founders “extremists” to people like Andy Stern and Anna Burger? When you start to add up the evidence, it certainly appears so. The SEIU is the same union… that ‘declared war’ last year on America’s Tea Party movement… that spent nearly $1 million dollars | Read More »
Just How Serious Is the Threat Level for Conservative Bloggers?
Two pertinent diaries this past week on RedState amplify this question, which, no doubt is nagging in the back of many people’s minds. When does it turn ugly, and what do we do when it does? One is Beaglescout’s Great Lie of Partisan Tolerance which is an important piece of research (at least to me) in that it connects the dots on Marxist theory from | Read More »
There They Go Again! Union Bosses Want 86-Year Old Volunteer Crossing Guard Fired!
There they go again. Big union bosses seem to have a penchant for putting their interests ahead of the larger community. A couple of months ago, it was purple-shirted SEIU bosses picking on an eagle scout for volunteering his time to clear a pathway. Now, the union bosses at the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union (AFSCME) want 86-year old Warren Eschenbach removed from | Read More »
