You’ve seen the post image, I’ve used it for years.  This story explains why I use it.  It is one story of many-union goons caught violating the law.  However, what this makes this story a rarity is that the goons were caught and indicted…

10 In Union ‘Goon Squads’ Indicted For Violence, Arson In Philadelphia – The Foundry

Ten members of a Philadelphia ironworkers union are charged with conspiring to commit extortion, arson, destruction of property, and assault to force construction contractors to hire union workers, according to the FBI.


The FBI this week said the members of Ironworkers Local 401 collaborated with allies who sought out construction sites that employed non-union workers, threatening personnel there with “violence, destruction of property or other criminal acts unless union members were hired.”

So-called “goon squads,” including a group calling itself “The Helpful Union Guys” (or THUGs) went into action. Some “set a crane on fire and cut steel beams and colts” at a Quaker Meeting House construction site in 2012, according to the indictment. In 2010, union members assaulted non-union workers with baseball bats at another construction site.

In 2013, they “threatened the contractor of an apartment complex… if he did not hire Local 401 members,” the indictment said. As a result, “the contractor relinquished his profits and turned the job over to a union-affiliated contractor.”

Experts say such incidents go both under-reported and prosecuted. National Institute for Labor Relations Research has documented over 9,000 reports of union violence since 1975, of which “barely 3 percent… have led to an arrest and conviction.”

This story has it all; vandalism, destruction of property, threats, arson, you name it.  It’s union goons in action.  And, all of this reflects back to one fact-that unions are so great, that people have to be forced to deal with them.

The much maligned AR-15 was used to defend a couple from a home invader.  The media silence is deafening.  Mr Conservative has the details…

A couple whose names are being withheld by police were outside of their apartment on Friday, when Jasper Brisbon, who they said appeared to be on drugs, walked up and began staring at them. He did this for several minutes as the couple grew increasingly uncomfortable. Eventually, they decided to go inside of their apartment to get away from Brisbon, but he followed them.

t that point, the man grabbed his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and told Jasper Brisbon to leave. Brisbon refused his request and started moving towards him in a threatening manner. That’s when the man shot him in the chest and sent Brisbon to the ground. Afterwards, the man called police.

Don’t these people know that they are supposed to die for the narrative?   Sheesh, folks like this are going to ruin the who whole “ugly guns are bad” narrative.

Pro-Abortion Blogger Admits That They are Burying the Gosnell Abortion Clinic Trial

It wasn’t a big stretch of the imagination to think that the left would bury the Kermit Gosnell story.  For those unfamiliar, Dr. Kermit Gosnell is an abortion doctor that ran a clinic in Philadelphia,  In this clinic, according to some of his former employees, as many  as 100 babies were born alive, and then killed.  At least two patients at the facility  died, and (for the lack of a better term) fetus and baby parts were found all over the place.  But, even though Dr. Gosnell is being tried for seven deaths, the MSM hasn’t covered it.  Live Action News is discussing a liberal blogger’s explanation as to why…

Megan McArdle at The Daily Beast explains why she’s chosen to keep quiet until now:

But I understand why my readers suspect me, and other pro-choice mainstream journalists, of being selective—of not wanting to cover the story because it showcased the ugliest possibilities of abortion rights. The truth is that most of us tend to be less interested in sick-making stories—if the sick-making was done by “our side.”

Of course, I’m not saying that I identify with criminal abortionists who kill infants and grievously wound their patients. But I am pro-choice.

What Gosnell did was not some inevitable result of legal abortion. But while legal abortion was not sufficient to create the horrors in Philadelphia, it was necessary. Gosnell was able to harm so many women and babies because he operated in the open.

… If I think about it for a moment, there are obviously lots of policy implications of Gosnell’s baby charnel house. How the hell did this clinic operate for seventeen years without health inspectors discovering his brutal crimes? Are there major holes in our medical regulatory system? More to the point, are those holes created, in part, by the pressure to go easy on abortion clinics, or more charitably, the fear of getting tangled in a hot-button political issue? These have clear implications for abortion access, and abortion politics.

… Moreover, surely those of us who are pro-choice must worry that this will restrict access to abortion: that a crackdown on abortion clinics will follow, with onerous white-glove inspections; that a revolted public will demand more restrictions on late-term abortions; or that women will be too afraid of Gosnell-style crimes to seek a medically necessary abortion.

They don’t want people to associate abortion with such barbarities. They don’t want people to know that it’s not unusual at all for babies to be born alive after an abortion – and then summarily killed. They don’t want to cover horrific stories that portray abortion negatively.

And while it’s obvious that the lack of regulations and inspections of Gosnell’s clinic played a major role in the horrors he perpetuated on women and babies, McArdle still points out the truth: that pro-choicers oppose restrictions and regulations because it might restrict abortion. It’s better for women to quietly suffer under the Kermit Gosnells of the country than have life-saving regulations in place, and inspections to ensure that abortions are being performed safely. Stories like this one must be buried, or women might not get abortions anymore. More pro-life legislation might be passed. And they just can’t have that.

Cassy Fiano nailed it.  Basically, this is a old fashioned “muckraker” story.  If this gets out into wide circulation, it might cause calls for more regulation and restriction as on abortion.  That is not only bad for business, it is terrible for the eugenically minded progressives.  So, it can’t be covered.  Because there are likely others that will come to light as well, and the last thing the regressives want is too much truth getting out there,

It upsets the sheeple, you know?

“House of Horrors,” Philadelphia Abortion Clinic Allegedly Murdered Live Babies


Warning: Disturbing Content Ahead

If you want to see how far the abortion industry can go, you have to go no further than the city of brotherly love, where an abortion doctor, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, is standing trial for seven counts of killing seven babies, as well as an abortion patient.  Here is the coverage from the Daily Mail…

  • Dr Kermit Gosnell, 72, is on trial for ‘murdering seven babies and a woman, 41’ at an abortion clinic in Philadelphia

  • His former employee Sherry West testified at his trial that she saw women visit the clinic who appeared too pregnant to be there

  • She testified that she was asked to ‘help’ with a underdeveloped newborn whose screams ‘sounded like a little alien’

  • Eight clinic employees have pleaded guilty to various charges in the case

In one particularly graphic description, she spoke about a time when she was handed a 18- to 24-inch-long newborn in a glass pan by an assistant who asked for her help.
‘I saw it, and I thought, “What do you expect me to do?”‘ she said. ‘It didn’t have eyes or a mouth but it was like screeching, making this noise. It was weird. It sounded like a little alien.’
She said she was so ‘freaked out’ that she left the room and did not know what happened to the baby. . . .
Other employees have described how they saw about 100 babies born alive and then ‘snipped’ with surgical scissors in the back of the neck, to ensure their ‘demise’ . . .
Disturbingly, the report alleged that fetal remains were stuffed into: ‘cabinets, in the basement, in a freezer, in jars and bags and plastic jugs’.
‘It would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place. It is literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body,’ one former employee Stephen Massof told NBC.

It is being said that there were about 100 babies born alive, and summarily executed, at this clinic.

Here is a pic from the Daily Mail article…

Human body parts in the freezer of an Abortion clinic

I don;t think I need to add too much commentary.  The details speak for themselves.  I mentioned last week that I thought we were not just in a political fight, but a spiritual one.

Robert Stacey McCain said the following…

Here’s a simple question: How do you sleep at night?

I don’t think they lose a single wink.  That, and I think that that was perhaps a rhetorical question.

This is abortion,  This is the right to choose.  And, if this were a  previous generation, there would be called for the doctor to be charged with crimes against humanity.  Now, the MSM, the left, and the administration will just take a pass on even acknowledging that this even happened.

Did Union Thugs Destroy a Church?


union thug

Apparently, even God isn’t above the reach of union thugs.  Here’s the background.  Quakers (not the Oatmeal folks, the actual religion) needed a new “meeting house” (their place of worship=church).  However, they decided to go with non-union labor.  That’s when things, shall we say, got interesting.  Philly .com,  via Weasel Zippers has more…

As agonizing as the process was, the result is a trim little design, faced in traditional Wissahickon schist, that will visibly reflect the ideals Quakers hold dear, from respect for the environment to plain old good neighborliness. And yet, in one crucial way, the $5.8 million project now under construction is also a frank acknowledgment of real-world conditions: To afford Philadelphia’s first new Quaker meetinghouse in 80 years, the Chestnut Hill Friends felt their only option was to employ a nonunion contractor.

And now they are paying the price.

Four days before Christmas, the Friends’ world was rocked by the sort of violence they have devoted their lives to stamping out.

Vandals with an acetylene torch crept onto the project’s muddy construction site in the middle of the night. Working out of view in the meetinghouse’s freshly cemented basement, they sliced off dozens of bolts securing the bare steel columns and set fire to the building crane, causing $500,000 in damage.

Police detectives deemed the attack arson because of a series of confrontational visits from union officials days before the incident. They say the torch could only have been operated by a trained professional, and believe it was almost certainly the work of disgruntled union members. The city has assigned extra investigators to the case and is working with federal forensic experts to track down the vandals, said Michael Resnick, the city’s public safety commissioner.

If this turns out to be true, it would be yet another example of the terror tactics used by unions.  If someone steps outside of the union influence, they must be punished.  And, it doesn’t appear that they even respect God.  It must be good to be a union boss.  Great pay, lots of perks, millions of workers that are forced to pay tribute to you, and you even get to attack God.

No wonder union bosses think so highly of themselves.


Election 2012 Wrap up: Voter Fraud Rampant in Spigot Cities


If you look at the map above, you will see that the most of the country was a sea of red.  The Blue areas are mostly centered on urban areas, which are predominantly controlled by Democrats.   Many of these Democratic bastions have been termed “spigot cities, ” designed to commit massive fraud to turn red states blue.  Before the election, The Blaze covered this…

J. Christian Adams, an author and former attorney for the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, spoke about the spigot cities on the BlazeTV documentary — “The Machine” — which delves into various forms of voter fraud and how it’s being perpetuated. Many believe it is ultimately resulting in a loss of freedom through a corrupt voting system.

Adams believes spigot cities are managed by the Obama campaigned with some involvement by the Voting Section of the Justice Department.

“Without the spigot being opened in Philly, without the spigot being opened in Saint Louis, without the spigot being opened in Detroit and Fort Lauderdale and– and– and places around the country like that, Milwaukee– Cleveland, Cincinnati, those states would not go blue,” Adams said on “The Machine.” “It requires massive turnout– in large unopposed numbers in those urban centers for those states to remain in– in the blue column. What you have, unfortunately, is pervasive systemic voter fraud in many of those places. I’ve seen it with my own eyes.”

So, did this materialize on election day?  Let’s take a look.  Here are some stories from the days following the election…

Voter Fraud in Boston

In Boston alone, in almost every single ward, there was a substantially higher number of votes than people actually registered to vote. See the following link for actual #’s:


Note that the link is to an official website from the City of Boston.  No conspiracy, no made up evidience.  It’s all public information, from the original source…

In other words, 129% of the registered voters on Boston cast a ballot.  But that isn’t fraud, right?

In Philadelphia, Democratic officials illegally removed Republican poll observers, and those same precincts has abnormally high turnout.  Imagine that!

Here is audio of the Republican officials being refused admittance…

Then, here are the results…

Across Philadelphia, GOP poll inspectors were forcibly (and illegally) removed from polling locations. Coincidentally (or not), Mr. Obama received “astronomical” numbers in those very same regions, including locations where he received “over 99%” of the vote.

Ward 4, which also had a poll watcher dressed in Obama attire, went massively for Obama. Mr. Obama received 99.5% of the vote, defeating Mr. Romney 9,955 to 55.

Is it odd that a county that expelled GOP inspectors and had people openly campaigning for Obama ended with 99.5% for Obama and 9955 votes for him? It’s up to you to decide.

The article mentions that voter turn out city wide was 60%, but in the precincts where the Republicans were removed, the turnout was abnormally high.  I wonder why?

Obama wins 108% of vote in an Ohio Country

It seems that more people showed up to vote in certain Ohio counties  than were registered.  

Mr. Obama won Wood County in Ohio this year. That’s right, Mr. Obama won the majority of Wood County’s 108% of registered voters. That’s not a typo.

In 2012, 106,258 people in Wood County are registered to vote out of an eligible 98,213.

Secretary of College Democrats Morgan Holliger chimed in, “We won Wood County, we won Ohio.”

Mr. Obama did indeed win Wood County, along with its 108% of voters.

Half the Democratic ground game is voter turnout. The other half is voter fraud. Voter ID would make an impact on this game, but that would be just like the return of Segregation or something.

141% of registered voters cast ballots in St. Lucie County, Florida

Because it isn’t voter fraud…right?

On Tuesday only one precinct had less than 113% turnout. “The Unofficial vote count is 175,554 registered voters 247,713 vote cards cast (141.10% ). The National SEAL Museum, a St. Lucie county polling place, had 158.85% voter turn out, the highest in the county.”

The Supervisor of Elections, Gertrude Walker, had this to say concerning the 141% voter turnout: “They may have had something like that in Palm Beach County, but we’ve never seen that here.”

Then again, in the early voting, it was discovered that the fountain of youth existed in North Carolina…

In 2010 those problems surfaced meaningfully as indicated in the below voter fraud post from an earlier Charlotte Conservative Examiner article:

Perhaps in an effort to promote North Carolina as one of the healthiest States in the Nation, this latest voter twist comes to us from Susan Myrick of the Civitas Institute in North Carolina–not to be confused with Rep. Sue Myrick of NC who is unrelated. In a radio interview with local WBT Anchor Tara Servatious, Susan reports that she has been keeping track of the number of votes in North Carolina of individuals over the age of 110 years and apparently we have quite a few, over 410 of the 110 year olds–to be exact– actually voted via absentee ballot on October the 28th. Yes indeed, now it would appear that good ole NC has the market cornered on the Centenarian vote.

At latest count, Susan has garnered a total Absentee Ballot vote of over 2,660 people over the age of 110. Someone contact the Guiness Book and warm up the Ford, the Fountain of Youth exists and its right here in lovely NC. It’s no wonder people are moving here in droves–maybe the use of tobacco isn’t such a bad thing after all? But, on a more serious note, with all of the irregularities going on all over the place, we can now begin to wonder about a few things.

Apparently those ultra-healthy seniors over 110 have aged and are now astoundingly over 112 years old, and are still able to make it to the polls ahead of time.

So, as you can see, this is a factor in elections.  Also, this isn’t the complete number of stories on fraud, just some of the more egregious.  And not matter how much evidence is uncovered, the media will not cover it, and the Democrats vilify anyone who points it out.

NOTE:  I know the post image is photoshopped.  I think it’s funny, so I use it.


Philly Taxing Bloggers


Most bloggers, well…blog, as a hobby.  It’s a time intensive labor of love to find stories, write your particular take on them, publish them, visit other blogs to comment and show some support, publicize your work so people might actually pay attention to it, and so on.  And with all of that comes the great profit and critical acclaim that we all seek…right?

Eh, not so much.

Most bloggers have no advertising at all.  Some have tip jars.  Others do advertising, but make next to nothing on it.  As you have likely noticed, there is advertising at the CH 2.0.  Let’s just say that the Adsense has paid for some of the hosting, as well as a headset for a podcast that hasn’t happened yet.  Needless to say, I haven’t exactly given up on the day job yet.  As for the other ads…nada.

But, this reality hasn’t stopped the City of Brotherly Graft from taxing bloggers.  For the story of Marilynn Bess, check this out from the City Paper.

In May, the city sent Bess a letter demanding that she pay $300, the price of a business privilege license.

“The real kick in the pants is that I don’t even have a full-time job, so for the city to tell me to pony up $300 for a business privilege license, pay wage tax, business privilege tax, net profits tax on a handful of money is outrageous,” Bess says.

It would be one thing if Bess’ website were, well, an actual business, or if the amount of money the city wanted didn’t outpace her earnings six-fold. Sure, the city has its rules; and yes, cash-strapped cities can’t very well ignore potential sources of income. But at the same time, there must be some room for discretion and common sense.

When Bess pressed her case to officials with the city’s now-closed tax amnesty program, she says, “I was told to hire an accountant.”

So this lady makes enough cash for a cup of coffee, and the city is going to charge her to the hilt for it?

This is why businesses leave areas with idiotic tax policies.  This is also why people either quit and close, or never start in the first place.  I can’t say that this is an attempt to silence political bloggers, as Ms. Bess’s site is reportedly about green living.  However, I can say that this is a case of a municipality screwing over people for tax revenue.

It’s simply idiotic.
