In typical union goon fashion, the President of the NY United Federation of Teachers, Michael Mulgrew, directly threatened anyone who opposes that anti-educational/liberal indoctrination plot know as Common Core. 

Video surfaced on Thursday showing Michael Mulgrew, president of New York’s United Federation of Teachers, as he unloaded a hateful rant against critics of the Common Core Standards Initiative.

“If someone takes something from me, I’m going to grab it right back out of their cold, twisted, sick hands and say it is mine!” Mulgrew bellowed clownishly. “You do not take what is mine!”

The union boss also challenged opponents of Common Core and union control over education to a fist fight.

“I’m going to punch you in the face and push you in the dirt because this is the teachers’!” Mulgrew threatened.

The teachers union bigwig made the speech at a convention in Los Angeles last month, according to the New York Daily News.

Here is a video of Mulgrew’s comments…

You see, his comments are emblematic of liberalism.  They demand complete control.  They use that control to screw things up thoroughly, then blame someone else for the failure that results.  Then, if anyone questions them, or threatens that control, violence usually comes.  I did videos on that a while back…

In other words, Mulgrew is just acting in accordance with his nature as a union goon.  He’ll get whatever he wants, no matter the cost, or people will get hurt.

Nevada Assembly Woman Michelle Fiore was at the Bundy ranch in Nevada and happened to be interviewed by MSNBC host Chris Hayes. Folks, let me tell you – this was better than any episode of Celebrity Death Match. Fiore was fierce, remained composed and never once took the bait of the left’s talking points. Despite Hayes’ repeated attempts to steer the conversation towards painting rancher Cliven Bundy as a criminal, Fiore stood her ground and gave better than she got.

She stuck to her original premise that not only is the amount allegedly owed in question, and additionally where does the federal government ever send armed agents to collect a debt?

Several times Hayes’ tried unsuccessfully to get Fiore to agree that feds were within their rights, but just got a bit heavy handed. Fiore would  have none of it and asked Hayes, “If you owed the federal government money, Chris do you want them coming to you house, pointing guns at your wife and children? Is that okay with you?” To which Hayes responded, “No.” “Because it’s definitely not okay with me, it’s not okay with Americans across the country.”

At the end, she really hammers Hayes with his own words, it’s a must see.

Subaru Dealership Outwits Union; Turns Attempted Intimidation Into Epic Win

Share

To say that one outwitted a union is not much of a statement.  For decades, union goons got away with violence, intimidation, extortion, and any of a number of mob related offenses for which they were immune from prosecution.  Now, with technology, like digital cameras, social media, and blogs, union thugs have a harder going of it.  If they beat someone up, there’s someone there with a camera to record it.  Then, it circulates all over as example # 1,500,693 of union violence.  In other words, their overt tactics now expose them, so more subtle methods are needed.  So, in many cases, they have switched to other tactics, like trying to shame people.  When Carpenter’s local 201, in Wichita, Kansas, wasn’t able to break all the kneecaps at a local Subaru dealership and get a contract, they decided to place a sign outside the dealership to smear them.  The response of the dealership was priceless and epic.  Here is more…

WICHITA — Labor dispute signs have been popping up at all kinds of businesses and nonprofits in the last couple of years, but Subaru of Wichita appears to be the first business to fight back.

“To be accused of desecrating the American way of life, we’re going to take a little bit of exception to that,” says Aaron Wirtz, who handles marketing and media for Subaru.

Earlier this week, the United Brotherhood Of Carpenters And Joiners Of America Local 201 began a protest in front of the dealership, which is on East Kellogg between Greenwich and 127th Street.

Subaru is in the process of a $1.5 million update to transform the property to the Subaru brand from the previous Suzuki brand that was there.

Wirtz says in addition to hiring a local architect on the project, Subaru hired Wichita’s Key Construction as its contractor. He says Key then hired Hi-Tech Interiors, a local nonunion firm, to do a small portion of drywall work.

In response, the Carpenters union now has people manning a “Shame on Subaru of Wichita” sign on an easement in front of the dealership.

“While we’re certainly not happy to see that, we were kind of unsurprised,” Wirtz says.

In response, Subaru now has a sign that plays off the “Shame” by saying, “For having unbeatable prices.” It also says “indisputable” in a couple of places on the sign.

Wirtz says Subaru respects the union’s right to protest.

“We’ve actually given them lunch. We’ve invited them to visit our facilities.”

Wirtz says he’s convinced the people with the sign are simply hired by the union to stand there.

I wonder if the unions are paying those people a “living wage?”

Here is the union sign…

shame on subaruAnd here is the dealership’s response…

subaru unbeatableThe original post from Kansas.com, as well as Twitchy, have more.

I have to ask if this union will be smart enough to avoid their typical tactics.  It is rather predictable that someone might sneak into the dealer’s lot late a night and “accidentally” slash some tires.  Ir maybe it will “mysteriously” catch on fire.  Or, will they realize what anyone with an ounce of sense, and at the bottom of a hole, figures out-stop digging!

Union Thugs Alert: Goons Threaten to Rape Children of Managers

Share

union thug

Union thugs are at it again.

Correct that!

Union thugs are still at it. 

The first sentence implies that union thugs ever stop being union thugs.

As the title points out, Union thugs have again been found to threatening the children of their targets.  Included in the latest example is threats to rape and kill children.  You know, just peaceful union activism, right?

Via Red State:

In the latest development of a more than year-long labor dispute in Vancouver, the National Labor Relations Board has accused picketers of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) Local 4 of a multitude of horrific acts which include violence, threats of rape and implied harm to children, as well as racial slurs toward company security officers.

These acts, according to The Oregonian include the pinning of a security officer’s legs under a moving vehicle, blocking drivers’ vision and causing permanent eye injury to a security officer, reckless pursuit of company vans, as well as threatening a manager’s daughter with rape and “implied threats to harm a manager’s children by telling him they would ‘see his children at school’ and asking, ‘are (his) children okay today?’”

The labor dispute began in February 2013, when United Grain Corporation–a wheat exporter that runs a terminal in Vancouver, Washington–locked out 44 ILWU workers following six months of “fruitless negotiations” and after an ILWU member allegedly sabotaged the company’s equipment. […]

In addition to the acts alleged by the NLRB, the union has used religious leaders to accuse the company of sins, “including the sin of ‘theft in stealing the right to work,’ the sin of ‘heartlessness in failing to acknowledge the humanity of their workers’ and the sin of “manipulation in hiring replacement workers who need the money.’”

You remember all the Bible verses where Jesus said to rape children, don’t you?

Just think about it.  According to law, threats, extortion, and the like, are all legal for union thugs (at least here in the US).  And, the unions, and their democrat cronies, are fighting tooth and nail to keep it going.   Because, as we all know, unions are go great, that people have to be forced to accept them!

More of Obama’s Thug Tactics, con’t.

Share

As reported here at Conservative Hideout previously, the Obama administration is steeped in what can be described as Chicago Thug Political Tactics. Unfortunately, the liberal policies of FDR and LBJ gave vast amounts of money to the political leaders in Chicago to consolidate their choke hold on the city, and therefore, the entire state.

“The New Deal of the 1930s and the Great Society of the 1960s gave the Democratic Party access to new funds and programs for housing, slum clearance, urban renewal, and education, through which to dispense patronage and maintain control of the city.”

Since Obama cut his political teeth in Chicago, learning the ropes not only under the auspices of the Chicago Political Machine, but also as a disciple of Saul Alinsky, he naturally brought these tendencies with him to Washington DC. He has surrounded himself with like-minded individuals who completely understand that they don’t need President Obama’s complicity in their actions. They know what is expected of them and what will and won’t be allowed.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner testifies in WashingtonEnter Timothy Geithner. His ancestry on his mother’s side can be traced all the way back to the Mayflower. He is of German descent, born in America, but spending nearly his entire childhood overseas, mostly in Asia. His academic credentials are impressive, including Dartmouth College, Peking University and Bejing Normal University and also Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.

I think a very interesting point, and one that may indicate at least one reason why he was nabbed by Obama to be his Secretary of the Treasury is worth noting here. It seems that Geithner’s father in the ’80s, ran the Ford Foundation’s microfinance programs in Indonesia, which were being developed by Ann Dunham Soetoro.
ann dunham soetoro
Yes, THAT Ann Dunham Soetoro. Barack Hussien Obama’s mother.

Fast forward to the credit downgrade of the United States by Standard & Poor. That happened in 2011, and it seems that it brought about an ominous warning/threat by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. This has come to light in a legal filing as part of the case Eric Holder’s Justice Department has brought against S&P, following their downgrade of the US credit from AAA to AA+.

The Justice Department’s lawsuit alleges that S&P defrauded investors in the lead-up to the ’08 financial crisis by giving shaky mortgage bonds its highest rating. S&P alleges the suit is in retaliation to the downgrade, stating that Geithner personally called Harold McGraw III, CEO of S&P’s parent company, McGraw Hill Financial.

He said that two days after the announcement of the credit downgrade, Geithner called and warned him that the ratings firm had made an error in its analysis and that “you are accountable for that,” according to a filed legal document.

McGraw said in his deposition that an angry Geithner said on the call that S&P had made previous mistakes and would be “looked at very carefully.” McGraw added that Geithner told him “you have done an enormous disservice to yourselves and to your country” and that the downgrade had caused real damage to the struggling economy.

“Such behavior could not occur, [Geithner] said, without a response from the government,” McGraw said, according to the deposition.

Geithner has denied any such allegations through a spokeperson.

”The allegation that former Secretary Geithner threatened or took any action to prompt retaliatory government action against S&P is false,” Jenni LeCompte said in an emailed statement.

Eric Holder Attends Awards Ceremony At Justice Department

Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department dismissed the charges out of hand.

 

“This is the first time this allegation is being made 2½ years after the call purportedly happened,” a DOJ official said, adding that lawyers involved in the case against S&P had no knowledge of Geithner’s alleged comments.

Now whether anything will ever be proven as to Geithner’s threats. It is clear that this administration continues to bully, threaten, scandalize and demonize anyone who gets in their path.

This is How the Left Works: The Stalking and Harassing of Scott Walker and His Family

Share

I have devoted a great deal of time to covering the tactics of the left.  Whether it’s been Union goons, Occupy Wall Street, of even #FreeKate, they all try to use thug tactics to threaten and attack their adversaries.  Here are some of the tactics being used against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker when the unions were trying to maintain their death grip on public workers…

The letter was addressed to Walker’s wife, Tonette. It read:

Has Wisconsin ever had a governor assassinated? Scotts heading that way. Or maybe one of your sons getting killed would hurt him more. I want him to feel the pain. I already follow them when they went to school in Wauwatosa, so it won’t be too hard to find them in Mad. Town. Big change from that house by [BLANK] Ave. to what you got now. Just let him know that it’s not right to [EXPLETIVE] over all those people. Or maybe I could find one of the Tarantinos [Tonette’s parents] back here.

But, Walker’s opponents didn’t stop at just death threats.  They were following his family members, including his children…

Erwin worked tirelessly to ensure Walker’s safety, the book notes. And it wasn’t just for him: Walker’s entire family was apparently being stalked.

“Governor, I’ve been at this awhile, and when the hairs stand up on the back of my neck, you have to be concerned,” the former Marine told Walker. “They know where you go to church; they’ve been to your church. They’re following your children and tracking your children. They know where your children go to school, what time they have class, what time they get out of class.”

“They know when they had football practice. They know where your wife works, they know that she was at the grocery store at this time, they know that she went to visit her father at his residence,” he said.

The size of Walker’s security detail was eventually increased and troopers had to be assigned to monitor his children at school.

This is what leftists, bullies, and other goons do.  This is not the exception-it is the rule.  For example, one of the former #FreeKate supporters that contacted me told me that once they broke with that group, and started talking about what they knew, they were contacted by other #FreeKate supporters.  Those supporters threatened not only the “defector,” but their family and even children as well.  The groups formerly known as ACORN were well know for having protests at the schools attended by their target’s children.  And, we remember how Occupy Wall Street terrorized children…

When one has no morals, terrorizing children is nothing more than a tactic, or a means to an end.

Union Thug Update: Better Not Talk About Right to Work

Share

union thug

As the saying here at the CH 2.0 goes,

Unions: so great, that people have to be forced to join. 

And, if you want the freedom to choose if you belong to a union or not, goons show up to threaten you!  Freedom Works has more…

One eyewitness sent me an account of what happened, along with video. This eyewitness has requested anonymity, fearing reprisals from the unions.

Freedom “Ruins Everything,” Unions Protest

Three words strike fear into the hearts of union leaders: “Right to Work.” At the mere mention of the phrase, unions in lockstep intimidate, harass, and bully those who dare to question what’s best for American workers.

Little did I know I’d be experiencing this first hand.

As a young conservative striving to find a foothold in a challenging economy, I was intrigued by the Northwest Employee Freedom event about right-to-work legislation. Held jointly by Oregon’s Cascade Policy Institute and Washington’s Freedom Foundation, labor experts including “top union watchdog” Vincent Vernuccio from the Mackinac Center would be coming to Vancouver to discuss labor reform and strategies for increasing employee freedom across the country.

I was looking forward to an intellectual discussion from these leading minds, but others insisted on being heard that evening.

From the moment my companions and I pulled up to the Clark College parking lot, already having fought our way through a drenching Northwest downpour, we realized another battle lay ahead. A cluster of people waving signs obstructed the driveway. Standing in the crosswalk to slow down cars, one man snapped pictures of every license plate as we drove in. Intimidation: Chapter One.

Chapter Two awaited us at the building entrance. Another crowd milled around the doors bearing more signs, daring any one of us to call them out. “He threatened to punch me if I didn’t get out of the crosswalk,” complained one would-be victim about another event attendee. “Let’s call the police on him.” One man held a sign stating, “Right 2 Work short changes your wallet” and admonished us, “Shame on you!” as we walked by without comment. “Right to work ruins society,” intoned another protester. “Ruins everything.”

The only thing being ruined at that moment was the educational forum we were yet to reach. Protesters in the hallway hovered as we presented our tickets, trying to join their compatriots who had already shouldered their way inside.

We entered the room to find sheer chaos – men with signs and bullhorns flanked the perimeter, surrounding participants who sat at tables watching the spectacle in disbelief. Vincent Vernuccio, the featured speaker, was countering the amplified voices with his brash New York attitude, giving no quarter as the men tried to hold the event hostage. “It’s our meeting now!” one bullhorned protester proudly proclaimed, as if sheer volume somehow translated to being king of the sandhill.

Chanting then broke out. “Hey hey, ho ho, union busting’s got to go! Hey hey, ho ho…” Another shouting match ensued. “Who is paying your wages?” demanded one protester.  “What are your biggest donors, your biggest contributors?” Ah yes, because unions are clearly in favor of financial transparency.

The situation continued out of hand until police arrived to a round of applause, escorting out the union trespassers and arresting one man who tried to insist that he was being “profiled.”

“Back to our regularly scheduled programming,” Vincent, the speaker, quipped. “If you’re not getting flak, it means you’re not over the target!”

The event itself proved incredibly illuminating. Harry Beck, famous for union workers’ “Beck rights” to pay only those dues not used for political purposes, cited Governor Kitzhaber’s Labor Day speech as a classic example of the hypocrisy inherent in the anti-right-to-work movement.

“Kitzhaber gives women the right to an abortion, or not. He gives seniors the right to die with dignity, or not. But he won’t give public sector workers, who are specially trained, who carry guns, who protect us, who we trust to teach our children – he won’t give them the right to choose whether to be in a union, or not. Why? Because they’re not smart enough?”

“Right-to-work isn’t about union dues. It’s about choice. It’s about freedom,” he emphasized.

Freedom to make unions have to earn their dues. Freedom to hold them accountable to the members that they claim to represent. Freedom from fear of the retaliation and intimidation tactics on which they rely.

Hey hey, ho ho, freedom helps workers, don’t ya know?

The Blaze has even more…

All of this points out several aspects about Unions, and the political left as a whole…

1.  The left is all about choice, until you choose something they don’t like.  Choose to kill a baby?  Great!  Choose to kill a black baby?  “Better yet,” says the leftist!  Choose to be gay, Muslim, Wiccan, or furry?  Excellent!

Now, something breaks down…

Choose to be a Christian?  HATER!  Choose to be free?  GREEDY! Choose not to be in a Unions?  Release the Union Thugs!  You’re a medical worker who chooses not to participate in abortions because of your religious beliefs?  You’re FIRED!

2.  “This what democracy looks like,” was the battle cry in Wisconsin, and at OWS.  But, when people vote for something else, it simple cannot be allowed.  You see, “democracy” is only “democracy” if the leftists win, even if they have to cheat.  If they lose, then it is not “democracy,” it is “hate.”

3.  Just like the East Germans and Soviet Union, the totalitarian impulse is strong in leftists. So even if it sucks, people cannot be allowed to leave.  Whether its keeping poor minority kids from escaping democrat-ruined public schools, or preventing workers from choosing to join a union, there can be no escape from leftist control, and if Union Thugs have to bust your head to make you stay, so be it.

Christian Bakery Closed by Gay Mafia Threats/Intimidation, and How to Fight Back

Share

gay_nazi

It’s going to be  familiar refrain, if the gay rights crowd has their way…

Christians need not apply.

As I see it, there is a pattern of attack used by gay rights groups in response to the very existence of a Christian business.

1.  The gay rights crowd sends someone to that business with a request that will cause the business owner to violate their beliefs.

2.  Since the Christian business owner actually has a core morality to guide him/her, they will refuse the the request.

3.  The gay rights crowd then begins a typical leftist campaign of terror against the Christian business owner.  Legal action might be taken, death threats will come, and boycotts will be threatened.

4.  The Christian business closes.

6.  ???

5  PROFIT!!!!

To see the latest example of this, take a look at what happened to a Bakery owner that dared worship that Jesus guy!

Better is a poor man who walks in integrity than a rich man who is crooked in his ways,” read a posting from Proverbs on the bakery’s Facebook page.

“The LGBT attacks are the reason we are shutting down the shop. They have killed our business through mob tactics.”

– Aaron Klein, owner, Sweet Cakes By Melissa

“It’s a sad day for Christian business owners and it’s a sad day for the First Amendment,” owner Aaron Klein told me. “The LGBT attacks are the reason we are shutting down the shop. They have killed our business through mob tactics.”

Last January, Aaron and Melissa Klein made national headlines when they refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple.

Klein tells me he has nothing against homosexuals — but because of their religious faith, the family simply cannot take part in gay wedding events.

“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman,” he said. “I don’t want to help somebody celebrate a commitment to a lifetime of sin.”

The lesbian couple filed a discrimination with the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries and told their story to local newspapers and television statements.

Within days, militant homosexuals groups launched protests and boycotts. Klein told me he received messages threatening to kill his family. They hoped his children would die.

The LGBT protestors then turned on other wedding vendors around the community. They threatened to boycott any florists, wedding planners or other vendors that did business with Sweet Cakes By Melissa.

“That tipped the scales,” Klein said. “The LGBT activists inundated them with phone calls and threatened them. They would tell our vendors, ‘If you don’t stop doing business with Sweet Cakes By Melissa, we will shut you down.’”

Of course, the lesbian couple could go to any other baker out there.  I would suggest that this bakery, and other businesses like it, are being targeted in this manner.  It is an effort to shut down Christian businesses.  You see, the gay rights crowd doesn’t want “tolerance.”  They don’t want to be jus a part part of a pluralistic society.  They want to dominate society by crushing anyone that gets in their way-except Muslims.  (For some reason, Muslims, who do actually kill gays, are not being attacked-go figure)  Like any other “tolerant” regressive group, the gay rights crowd is very “tolerant” of anyone that agrees with them entirely.  However, if you love God, and his son, you must be attacked, and you will be driven from the marketplace, and eventually, society as a whole.

But, there may be a way to fight back.  If you recall, during the 2011 effort to combat the excesses of public sector unions in Wisconsin, union thugs (in addition to beating up women) were going from business to business in Madison, demanding that each sign a petition and post a sign in their window stating support for the union.  I covered this at the time…

Charlie Sykes, of AM 620, WTMJ, is reporting that local businesses in Wisconsin are being threatened by labor unions.  Apparently, to make the threats go away, the businesses had to sign a petition condemning Governor Walker.  Here is a screencap, via Michelle Malkin…

letter11letter2

letter3In other words, just like the gay rights groups, the unions were saying the following…

Nice business you have here… be a shame if something were to happen to it. 

The problem for the unions in Madison was their efforts were very, very illegal.  And, they backed off quickly once that was pointed out.  You see, most states included this kind of stuff in their statutes to protect businesses from the mob- you know, the mafia!  I covered that aspect as well…

Now there is another development underway in the case of the union shakedown of local businesses.  Several bloggers, including Da Tech Guy, have pointed out that threatening the boycott of businesses might be a felony…

So let’s take a look at what Wisconsin law states, specifically Wisconsin Statutes > Criminal Code > Chapter 943 > Subchapter III > § 943.30 – Threats to injure or accuse of crime:

943.30
943.30 Threats to injure or accuse of crime.
943.30(1) 1) Whoever, either verbally or by any written or printed communication, maliciously threatens to accuse or accuses another of any crime or offense, or threatens or commits any injury to the person, property, business, profession, calling or trade, or the profits and income of any business, profession, calling or trade of another, with intent thereby to extort money or any pecuniary advantage whatever, or with intent to compel the person so threatened to do any act against the person’s will or omit to do any lawful act emphasis mine, is guilty of a Class H felony.

Note that since according to the letter sent out to businesses a “neutral” stance is not allowed, the union is COMPELLING the person to act against their will or suffer the consequences. That makes this section active and makes the union letter written proof of a class H felony.

A class H felony in Wisconsin carries a max of 6 years a fine of $10k or both.

And the second section is even more interesting:

943.30(2)
(2) Whoever violates sub. (1) by obstructing, delaying or affecting commerce or business or the movement of any article or commodity in commerce or business is guilty of a Class H felony.

So that means that if you are a protester as part of the promised boycotts or picket of a business based on the above letter: Presto! You are subject to this same penalty!

So, if you are a Christian businessman in Wisconsin, you are protected by these laws.  I checked in PA, and I found the following…

§ 3923.  Theft by extortion.
        (a)  Offense defined.--A person is guilty of theft if he
     intentionally obtains or withholds property of another by
     threatening to:
            (1)  commit another criminal offense;
            (2)  accuse anyone of a criminal offense;
            (3)  expose any secret tending to subject any person to
        hatred, contempt or ridicule;
            (4)  take or withhold action as an official, or cause an
        official to take or withhold action;
            (5)  bring about or continue a strike, boycott or other
        collective unofficial action, if the property is not demanded
        or received for the benefit of the group in whose interest
        the actor purports to act;
            (6)  testify or provide information or withhold testimony
        or information with respect to the legal claim or defense of
        another; or
            (7)  inflict any other harm which would not benefit the
        actor.
        (b)  Defenses.--It is a defense to prosecution based on
     paragraphs (a)(2), (a)(3) or (a)(4) of this section that the
     property obtained by threat of accusation, exposure, lawsuit or
     other invocation of official action was honestly claimed as
     restitution or indemnification for harm done in the
     circumstances to which such accusation, exposure, lawsuit or
     other official action relates, or as compensation for property
     or lawful services.
     (June 24, 1976, P.L.425, No.102, eff. imd.)
 

So, if you are own a business, and you are a Christian, you may have a legal means of defense.  You will have to check your state’s statutes, but fighting the mafia happened everywhere, so I would guess that all states have something like this.  Of course, if your local prosecutor is gay, or a democrat, or a regressive (but I repeat myself), you may not get much help.  But, it’s on the books.

Does this mean that we’ve identified the “gay mafia?”

So great, you’ll be forced to join!

This blog has long been a place to look at union violence.  From the Verizon strike, to the gooning up of Wisconsin, Unions have cast a never ending reign of terror over the US for far too long.  Victims have suffered beatings, stabbings, shootings, vandalism, threats, intimidation, and the like.  Here are some informational videos…

Is it just me, or did that video seem like a mafia movie?

A tragic story.

Unions: So Great, That People Have to be Forced to Join!  Or Else!

SEIU Protester Suggests That McDonalds Workers “Might do Something to the Food”

Share

warning-seiu-members-attending-this-meeting

I’ve covered the SEIU many times.  Beside having a big affinity for communism, the SEIU has an alleged history of sabotaging workplaces to get what they want.  Allegedly, even nursing home care…

Well, another union, the SEIU, has been accused of sabotaging patient care at nursing homes.  Big Government has more…

Union workers at Connecticut nursing homes represented by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) are alleged to have vandalized and sabotaged assisted living facilities in Connecticut — including those that care for Alzheimer’s patients — during a mass walkout earlier this month.

HealthBridge, which owns the nursing homes, is calling for a criminal probe after union workers allegedly tampered with medication records, removed patient identification bands and even switched the ID bands of various Alzheimer’s patients after union workers voted to stage a walkout because they were unhappy with the progress of labor negotiations between the union and HealthBridge. 

I think it’s right to call for a criminal probe.  Medical ID’s are linked to the medications that the patient in question.  If the medications get mixed up, there can be serious consequences, including death.

Fast forward to now, and we see that  at least one SEIU goon is suggesting that McDonald’s workers might tamper with food unless their pay is raised to $15 an hour. 

So, it looks like the SEIU  is dead set on killing off more jobs, and holding consumer ransom to their unreasonable demands.  But, at least the union bosses will get more money to use to buy Democrat politicians!

NOTE:  It is unknown as to whether or not the SEIU is seeking to “represent” the McDonald’s workers, or that the man wearing the SEIU shirt was an official representative of the union.  It does, however, display an attitude common to union members.

Obama/Holder’s War on Small Business and Their Gestapo Like Tactics

Share

Last year on the campaign trail, Obama let his slip show when he said that if you owned a small business, you didn’t build that. With absolutely zero experience in the private sector, our president has no idea what it means to risk your own, hard earned money, time and good name to start a business. Being steeped in the politics of Marx, Obama actually loathes folks that have made it on their own, with no help or thanks from the federal government. His education in Alinsky’s tactics, the MSM’s blind devotion and a dumbed-down electorate have all come together for a perfect storm in a Nazi-like war on business.

The Mountain Pure Water Bottling Company of Arkansas recently got fed a heeping dose of Obama and Holder’s thug tactics when their main office was stormed in a whirl wind of a raid that would have made Hitler, Mussolini or Stalin proud.

These folks were subjected to illegal search and seizure, intimidation and even threats against their personal safety when 40 to 50 federal agents swarmed in on their place of work. They were physically shoved out of the way, corralled into one room, subjected to having their personal items taken and not even allowed to contact an attorney.

The agents even went so far as to state that they were the federal government and they could do anything they wanted.

I know we all lead busy lives, dealing with the day-to-day details that make up our routine, but please, PLEASE sit down and take the 20 minutes needed to view this video. If we don’t at least highlight these thug, gestapo tactics when they occur, we’ll be sitting around telling our grand children what it was like in America back when men were free…

Union Thug to Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan, “We’ll be at your daughter’s soccer game”

Share

union thug

My theme for the week here, so it seems, is that if you leave leftists to their own devices long enough, that they’ll show their true nature.  That happened again in Michigan, where a speaker at a public event said (reading between the lines), “that’s a nice daughter you have there. It’d be a shame if something would happen to her.”

Here is the video…

Remember kids, this is how the left operates.  They want what they want, and if anyone stands in their way, they will be subjected to threats, attacks, intimidation, and harassment.  They aren’t above threatening children, or families, or disrupting Church, because even God takes a back seat to the temper tantrums of the petulant left.  And, this particular protest is meant to restore the union’s ability to force workers to join, and more importantly, to make paying union dues a condition of employment.  It’s about the power to force workers to play and pay along.  And, if they have to threaten children, harass public officials, disrupt church, or beat people up and destroy minority businesses to get the job done, so be it.

Michigan Union Violence Update: Thugs use Racial Slurs While Destroying Local Business

Share

When you leave the left to their own devices, they’ll most often show you their true thoughts and intentions.  This could not be more true recently in Michigan, where it was seen that union thugs displayed the violence and intelligence that has given them their “thug” designation   Of course, racism has deep roots in both the Democratic party, as well as unions, so it isn’t a surprise that racial slurs flew when a black businessman dared provide a service to Americans for Prosperity.

Stacey McCain has the background…

Lee Stranahan returned my phone call today. He was in Lansing, Michigan, to cover this week’s union goonfest for Breitbart.com, and he told me the story of what happened to Clint Tarver.

Clint is a beloved local figure, his hot dog stand across from the Michigan state capitol being a sort of institution, a landmark. “This is not a guy who’s about politics,” Lee explained. “He’s about hot dogs.”

Americans for Prosperity hired Clint to serve hot dogs at their tent on the capitol grounds, where AFP officials were presenting the pro-freedom side of the right-to-work argument. And when the union goons decided to assault the AFP tent, Clint became a target.

Union Thugs Shouted Racial
Slurs At Hot Dog Vendor While
Trashing His Business

Good Lord. Of course, they have no sense of shame, but are they also completely lacking a sense of irony? I mean, the Left has spent nearly four years building their “Tea Party is racist” meme, and the AFL-CIO brutes — who were nearly all white, as Stranahan reports and video verifies — decide they’ll just waste all that liberal media propaganda in order to terrorize a guy whose only “crime” is serving hot dogs?

Legal Insurrection has more…

But unless you read conservative blogs and websites, you have not heard that the union protesters shouted racial slurs at the man, including the N-word.

Lee Stranahan at Breitbart.com has an interview with the man in which he details what happened.  You can jump ahead to the 3:42 mark to hear about the racial slurs.

Then, Clint Tarver gave a press conference.  However, I doubt anyone from the MSM bothered to attend.

So, this isn’t going to get covered, being against the narrative and all.  So, racism and violence can be on public display, but our impartial and balanced media will never cover it.

Remember kids, we live in a post-reality world.

MIchigan Union Violence Update: Media Ignores it, Leftists Craft Conspriacy Theories

Share

Michigan, Unions, Violence, Goons, Americans for Prosperity, Tent, Attack, Assualt, Intimidation, MSM, Bias, Coverage The post reality world means that it really makes no difference what really happens, and even if you have the most iron-clad evidence, it’s all about who controls the information.  So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at what is happening…

Media Ignores Union Violence:

As usual, the MSM is refusing to cover union violence.  That is not new, and we shouldn’t be surprised, but it still should be covered, and so it shall.  Newsbusters has a storyto that end…

Networks Refuse to Cover Union Violence:

On Tuesday, World News reporter Alex Perez put the focus not on out of control violence, but on the fact that Michigan’s right-to-work bill actually passed. He began, “The anger boiling over. Officers turning to pepper spray to control the crowd at least 10,000 deep. But it wasn’t enough.” One might think the journalist was speaking of the attack on Fox News contributor Steven Crowder. No. Perez kept the attention on the new law: “Michigan Republican lawmakers approving landmark legislation, lifting the requirement that workers in unionized workplaces pay union dues.

Over on Tuesday’s CBS Evening News, Elaine Quijano vaguely explained, “Union members from across Michigan and other states voiced their anger at the Michigan capital.”

On NBC’s Nightly News, Brian Williams also ignored the actual violence. Instead, he worried, “The emotional fight over unions and American jobs in a place many thought it could never happen. Are we looking at a turning point for American workers?”

To sum it up simply, they spiked it.  And, if it isn’t covered, it didn’t happen.

Then, just when you thought you couldn’t  get any more strange, the leftists started projecting…

The Other McCain has more…

After yesterday’s incident in which labor union activists tore down an Americans for Prosperity tent in Lansing and sucker-punched Stephen Crowder, this headline zoomed up the Memorandum aggregation:Breitbart Folks Appear to Fake Violence in LansingHuh? This was a decidedly odd piece of blogging: The claim that somehow the union thug clobbering Crowder was part of a right-wing hoax, based on such “evidence” as the event having been reported by “James O’Keefe’s buddy” Lee Stranahan — because, hey, if anybody at Breitbart thinks it’s actually news, that means it must be phony, right?Also, the video was edited. Anybody who edits a video is obviously engaged in some kind of evil conspiracy.What the hell is this silly gibberish? Are these people crazy?No, they’re engaged in a systematic effort to create confusion and discourage mainstream journalists from reporting on the incident.Accuse the accusers!” Re-arrange the narrative of events so that a story that obviously makes the Left look bad is, instead, a story about the Right unjustly trying to make the Left look bad.

Here’s where my take is a bit different that Stacey’s.  It is true that accusing the accusers is a tactic in the lefts play book. However, there is an additional wrinkle, and that is WHY it’s in the left’s play book.  The name of that wrinkle is projection.  In psychology, projection is the tendency to think that others do as you do.  Since the left is infamous for false flag (remember the Infiltrate the Tea Party), and “staging atrocities” (remember OWS), that they would automatically assume that we are doing what they do for standard practice.  This thinking is the source for the idea that you will always know what the left is up to based on what they accuse us of doing.  In other words, the liberals look at us through the same fecal colored glasses that they use to view their own activities

One Consequence of Forced Union Membership

Share

warning-seiu-members-attending-this-meeting

As the unions fight to keep forced union membership in Michigan, I thought it might be a good idea to re-visit a story we did in early 2011, about how the SEIU got the then Governor of Michigan, to make parents of disabled children members.  Of course, the SEIU got to take dues from them, in exchange for…nothing!

In other words, the SEIU has gotten to take millions of dollars from people that care for their disabled children. Because unions are so super great, that people have to be forced to join them.

Now, let’s flashback to a more current story…

The linked article at the Mackinac Center has even more…

The SEIU has taken over $33 million from the elderly and disabled in Michigan in the last six years through a unionization scheme it orchestrated when Jennifer Granholm was governor. The majority of these people had no idea they were being forced into a union.

When the Michigan Legislature and Gov. Rick Snyder acted to end the scheme, the SEIU took legal action and then spent at least $6 million — money taken from those caregivers without their consent to use it for politics — to try and lock the dues skim into the state constitution: It failed.

Every newspaper in the state editorialized against Proposal 4. The Detroit Free Press called it “easy to dismiss” and The Detroit News said it was a “crass power grab.”

Several families reached out to Michigan Capitol Confidential to tell their stories: The Haynes family, who look after their two adult children who have cerebral palsy; Steven Glossop, who looks after his mother who lives with medical complications following heart surgery and a stroke; the Milliron family, whose adult son Ronnie “cannot walk or talk and is like a 5-month old” needing to be spoon-fed; and Richard Nottage, who looked after his ex-wife for just a few weeks. All of those individuals had some sort of current or previous experience as union members outside of the SEIU.

If Michigan becomes a right-to-work state, no union could ever force a worker to pay dues or agency fees as a condition of employment, and unions would be forced to cater to their member’s needs.

And, as we posted yesterday, union goons are beating people down in order to keep taking money away from the elderly and disabled.  Because, as we all know, forced union membership is a right, and if you disagree, your kneecaps can be broken!

Michigan: Union Thugs Attack, Steven Crowder of PJ Media Assaulted

Share

Today, in Michigan, the world got yet another lesson in what unions are all about.  We’ve shown multiple examples of union violence in the past.  What the goons failed to calculate this time is that they picked on and assaulted a relatively well known Conservative in Steven Crowder, of PJ Media.  Here is a video of part of the assault…

Ironically, while they are tearing down a tent set up by Conservatives, one is overheard complaining, and cursing about being called thugs….

And, we see the new tradition of attacking people with cameras…

After all, they can’t have people recording the thuggery can they?

This is organized labor at it finest.  They are a system of terror and control.  They insist on forcing others to join them.  They legalize theft from their “members” via dues, and then support politicians that kill the jobs of those same members.  When resisted, they resort to violence each and every time.  The power and control that they have amassed must be defended at all costs, and they don’t particularly care who they assault, attack or intimidate.

Unions:  So great that people should be forced to join!

They are the thugs, bullies, and goons of the left.  Violence is their only tool.  And, as people fight for freedom, we should expect them to become more and more violent.

Michael Moore Goes Full Metal Moonbat Over Right to Work

Share

Every now and again, a great example of moonbattery is seen.  Michael Moore had a reaction to the Michigan Right to Work Vote that raised the bar to “Full Metal Moonbattery.”  Let’s take a look at some of his tweets, via Red Alert Politics…

Right to work laws essentially prohibit unions from forcing employees who do not want to be union members to pay union dues in order to keep their jobs. It also stops businesses from requiring employees be part of a union as part of their employment agreement.
“This is all about taking care of the hard-working workers in Michigan, being pro-worker and giving them freedom to make choices,” Michigan’s Republican Gov. Rick Snyder said. “The goal isn’t to divide Michigan, it is to bring Michigan together.”

So, in other words, Moore is going to embrace freedom by forcing people to join a union, even if the use of such force is illegal?  Yes, because nothing says “freedom” or “rights” like force, right?

Wouldn’t that kinda  be like Democrats saying that they didn’t like the Emancipation Proclamation, so they were just going to force blacks to stay in the plantations anyway?  Come to think of it, they may have only changed the name of the plantation.

In the end, you get it.  To liberals, freedom is slavery.

Walker Wins Recall Vote: Let the Denial of Reality Begin

Share

It was over early, and  the race was called for Scott Walker, and the Lt. Governor, Rebecca Kleefisch.  This is one for the history books, and represents a huge win in the constant fight between freedom and the thug tactics used by Walker’s union opponents.  Here are some of my initial thoughts…

1.  The blame game will begin.  With any loss, the Democrats are going to blame someone else, so I would guess that the Koch brothers will be at the top of their list.  Forget that the unions spent $60,000,000.  Forget that they made asses of themselves by protested Special Olympics ceremonies, police memorials, wrecked the capitol building, faked Dr. excuses, beat up counter-protesters, and intimidated business owners.  Forget all of that, because that could not have possibly had anything to do with it, right?

2.  Then, there is now a conflict between the DNC and the unions.  The DNC didn’t spend a freely as the union bosses would have wanted.  Let’s just say that they aren’t going to like spending time under the bus.  The internal warfare might be interesting to watch.

In other words, it’s going to be the typical denial of reality.

More as it comes, and congratulations to Governor Walker, and Lt Governor Rebecca Kleefisch.
