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 »
Andy Stern’s Purple Shorts Turned Brown Tonight
$214,000 of his SEIU members money: Wasted. $685,000 more of his SEIU members’ money: Wasted. 300 pairs of purple jack-boots sent to Mass for GOTV: Wasted. Seeing Andy Stern’s own members campaigning for the opposition: PRICELESS America’s de facto Labor Party received a serious setback tonight: Brown will give Republicans a 41st seat in the Senate, robbing Democrats of the filibuster-proof majority the party had used to pass | Read More »
All The King’s Horses And All The King’s Men… May Not Be Enough.
The Anointed One’s panic button must certainly have been pushed to stir him from the urgency of crafting more illegal deals in his ILLEGAL attempted takeover of 16% of our total economy, taking ownership of our bodies and way of life as well. It remains to be seen how close they really are to agreement. It also remains to be seen how many of their | Read More »

Which Constitution Will SEIU Bosses Follow in Massachusetts?
Did donning their infamous purple shirts just put these SEIU members in jeopardy of retaliation from their union bosses? We might think SEIU members are merely exercising a constitutional right and campaigning for a candidate their union bosses have opposed. Sadly, however, by donning their purple shirts, their union bosses may have another opinion and claim the SEIU members have violated another constitution…that of the SEIU.

The Devil Just Bought 10,000 Snow Shovels Today: SEIU Protestors Picket For Brown
The above headline comes from one of the reader comments to this story from the American Spectator: More than 75 boosters of the GOP candidate turned out for the counter-rally, standing the sub-freezing weather to wave Brown signs and loudly sing (to the tune of “Battle Hymn of the Republic”), “Glory, Hallelujah . . . Send Scott Brown to D.C.!” Among the Brown supporters were | Read More »
