Democrat Party Created Shutdown Mashup: Illegals can Gather-Veterans Cannot, Death Benefits Denied, Losing Control of Narrative? Updated with Water Fountain Handles

In our latest shutdown update, we have to look at what our Democratic Senators have created by refusing to vote on any House-passed Continuing Resolutions. Veterans cannot visit open air memorials, but Illegal Aliens can have a rally on the Mall? I guess when it comes to the Democrat Party Generated Government Shutdown, the pain is applied to WW II and Vietnam Veteran, but illegal aliens are A-OK!  Nothing could be more emblematic of the Obama Regime than this. Even as it attempts to block off the open air World War II memorial to vets who traveled across the country […]

Never Believe “Official” Crowd Estimates

Remember when the Tea Parties got going in the Spring on ’09?  Remember how there would be thousands, or even tens of thousands of people there, and the MSM would say “dozens?”  Remember how the MSM would cover Obama campaign 2012 events by only showing tight shot on Obama-because the place was half empty?   Remember how Glenn Beck filled the National Mall twice, and the MSM severely downplayed the attendance?     If you do, you know that the MSM cannot be trusted for anything, let alone crowd estimates for political events.   Well, when the right was being truthful, and provided […]

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

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 […]

One Consequence of Forced Union Membership

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 […]

SEIU Considers Work Stoppage on Thanksgiving: The “More” to the Story

So, the SEIU wants to do a work stoppage at one of the busiest airports, and on the busiest travel day of the year.  Typically, we’d just look at this as yet another, “union goons screw up everyone’s holiday to get what they want.”  But, there is more to it than meets the eye.  For the preliminaries, take a look at this from Stop the ACLU… (CBS LA) Employees at Los Angeles International Airport were considering plans Friday to walk off the job ahead on what is traditionally the busiest traveling day of the year. But, hey, they really, really […]

SEIU Pays People to Protest Romney

I wonder if $11 an hour is a “living wage,” because that is what the SEIU was allegedly paying people to protest Mitt Romney.  The Blaze has the video… So then, how enthusiastic are the Democrats when they have to pay people to show up?   Then again, it appears to be standard procedure to pay people to be “rent-a-mob.”

That’s a Nice Granny You Have There, be a Shame if Something Were to Happen to Her: SEIU Accused of Sabotaging Nursing Home Care

Last year, we covered the Verizon strike, when company equipment would mysteriously get broken, and fiber-optic cables would spontaneously cut themselves.  Of course, the union said they didn’t do it, but then again, fiber-optic cables always spontaneously cut themselves, right? 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 […]

Unions Promise to Defend Voter Fraud?

  This one is a tad bit confusing, to be honest.  As we are all aware, voter fraud is a problem, as well as voter registration fraud.  We also know that AG Holder, when he is not sending guns down Mexico way, has promised to not enforce the parts of Motor Voter that demands that deceased, or otherwise illegal voters are removed from the rolls.  What the law does permit is for outside groups to monitor these rolls.  However, it seems that some union goons have taken issue with that cause.  J. Christian Adams, at PJ Media, has the details… […]

Occupy Plans Uncovered

The Blaze has the following video outlining some of the strategy that might be used by OWS in the coming year.  Kindly give it a view. Well, that doesn’t leave much room for speculation, does it?

#Occupy and Union Thugs Plans to Disrupt CPAC: Intimidation, Vandalism, and Violence to be Recorded?

leftyprotests

Isn’t it interesting that the movement that purports to be all about free speech and democracy tends to limit the free speech of others?  Well, it seems that #Occupy, and specifically, Occupy DC, plan to disrupt CPAC.  The most influential Conservative gathering in the US, CPAC attracts all of the big names in the Conservative world.  Presidential candidates, pundits, media, bloggers, and the like will descend on DC this week.  And, the Occupods will be there to greet them.  Here is more from the Washington Examiner… Here is their write-up: On February 9th through February 11th, a who’s who of dastardly politicians will be […]

What are the Thought Processes of a Union Organizer?

Ever wonder what constitutes the thought processes of a union organizer?  Take a look at the following video, posted at RedState by Labor Union Report… Where would one begin on refuting this?  It is pretty amazing.  She doesn’t discuss union violence, or that people are forced to join unions.  She doesn’t discuss the violence, the rapes, the vandalism, and the open calls for Communist revolution at OWS.  She does do a great job in painting things as all “touchy- feely,” that is, until you remember that “touchy-feely” to a union member means the feeling you get when they are beating you down […]

A Tale of Two Stories: Lowes not Advertising on “All-American Muslim,” is bad, but Boycotting Glenn Beck was Perfectly OK

In another not-at-all shocking example of a double standard, Lowes is taking some heat for choosing not to advertise on the TLC show, “All-American Muslim.”  The Blaze has some coverage here… Hardware retail giant Lowe’s has pulled its commercials from all future episodes of TLC’s reality TV show “All-American Muslim,” the chain said this week. The conservative Florida Family Association has been leading a campaign to get retailers to pull their advertisements from the show. On Tuesday, it posted an email from a Lowe‘s representative who said Lowe’s will no longer be advertising during “All-American Muslim,” which chronicles the lives of several Muslim-American families living […]

Useful Idiot of the Month Poll: October 2011

usefulidiotsnew

It’s that time again.  The nominations have been taken, and the people have spoken.  Here is a list of the candidates for Useful Idiot of the Month: October 2011… 1.  The Occupods:  They march for socialism, they attack people, they call for revolution, and suggest that we kill all of those pesky Jews.  They apparently defecate and urinate all over, and when they get bored, they attack the police as well.  It’s hippies on meth, and they aren’t going away. 2.  Barak Hussein Obama:  The perpetual candidate, and multiple winner of Useful Idiot of the Month. 3.  Geraldo Rivera: For sucking […]

Union Scam Revealed: SEIU Accused of Legally Skimming Medicaid Payments

Here’s an accusation that you might find disturbing… Seems perfectly despicable to me.

SEIU Alinsky Styled Guide Revealed: Thug Tactics Abound

warning-seiu-members-attending-this-meeting

Back in March, we discussed the fact the SEIU was being sued by Sodexo under the RICO statute.    It seems that the SEIU has had a RICO suit filed against them by Sodexo, a service company that the union wanted to “organize.”  Take a look at what happens to you when you resist the SEIU… Sodexo USA recognizes the value of union activity and has built positive relationships with more than 30 different unions.  Over 15 percent of Sodexo USA’s workforce is unionized, which is more than twice the national average for the private sector, and the Company has […]

Communists and Unions Living Together…

If you’re seeing this blog for the first time, let me say that we’ve repeatedly discussed the fact that there is a strong affiliation between organized labor and Communism.  We’re often ridiculed for making that claim, but once again, there is evidence to support our claims.  So, if you are a new reader, take a look at the following information, provided by Ringo’s Pictures, via Zombie Note the complete lack of Communists… Note that both Lenin and Che were mass murderers. Purple SEIU shirt, Red Flag.  They go together, apparently. The star and fist are Communist symbols, and they stand […]

More Union Shenanigans: "Democracy" Means Stopping Democracy

The union narrative includes the meme, “this is what Democracy looks like.” However, they seem to have a somewhat different idea on what democracy is.  Case in point, the SEIU.  Kindly take a look at this video. So, once again, we see that “democracy” is a one way street for the left.  We have elections…you know…democracy?  We elect people to vote on legislation…you know…democracy?  However, if the democratic outcome is not to the left’s liking, they reserve the right to DICTATE the outcome.  It is so readily apparent, and so obvious in their actions, that anyone can see it.  These are the […]

Glenn Beck Exposes Leftist Plans: Collapse the Economy to Take Power

We’ve talked about Cloward-Piven many times before.  In essence, the Cloward-Piven strategy is meant to undermine and overwhelm a system, or systems, and bring them to a state of collapse.  Then, as the idea goes, the resulting crisis creates an opportunity for “change.”  And, for our left, this “change” will necessarily consist of tyranny.  For some striking evidence of a current Cloward-Piven type plan, take a look at this video from The Blaze. For our leftists, it isn’t a matter of which system is better, it only matters that the dominant system is not theirs.  And since Marxist states cannot compete […]

A Tale of two Stories: SEIU Harassment, and Sued under RICO Statute

The SEIU is one of the unions most discussed by the right.  From what we have seen, they seem to be a beat down prone group of thugs, and are very open in their intimidation tactics. Here is a rather interesting video… So the goons show up and disrupt a business that has nothing to do with the hospital that the SEIU is striking against.  The  bank CEO is apparently on the hospital’s board, but there are negotiators that handle the union situation.  So, it is clear that this is nothing more than an intimidation tactic.  Look for them to show up […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: The SEIU Wants to "Smash us to the Ground"

Remember all the warning against “inflammatory rhetoric” that causes mentally ill people to become violent?  Well, like all hypocritical leftist groups, the SEIU thinks it’s perfectly OK to do exactly that.  The Blaze has the video… So, I’d like to challenge the SEIU to condemn this violent rhetoric.  But, of course, they won’t.  It’s OK when they do it. By the way, that all “smashing” people down is going to backfire on you.  You’re being posted on line, and the whole world is watching your thuggery.  The more you do, the more we post, and the more people get to see what […]

Useful Idiot of the Month Poll: February 2011

Well folks, the nomination thread was lively, and there is no shortage of good candidates this month.  Here  are your selections… James Clapper: Dur…teh Muslim Brudderhood is leik, secular and stuff. Jimmy Carter: Ditto.  He also allegedly consoled Helen Thomas after being fired for Anti-Semitic comments. Barak Obama: For all the left reasons. Wisconsin Democrats AKA: FleeBaggers: SEIU: Release the Kraken, or the Purple People Beaters! Lloyd Schofield: San Fran Freako dude that wants to ban circumcision. Illinois Governor Pat Quinn: For harboring fleebaggers from at least two states. The Wisconsin Doctors: that signed the fake medical excuses. Wisconsin Unionized […]

Labor Union Tactics Exposed: The Devil at my Doorstep

In keeping with my recent trend on looking at some of the long term, big picture problems to be addressed, I’ve decided to take on big labor.  To start, I thought I’d go with another example of thuggery and intimidation. In 2006, the SEIU decided that they were going to organize the company of David A. Bego.  The effort went on for nearly 4 years, and is a textbook application of the Alinsky Method.  In the end, Mr. Bego, as well as his employees, won the fight for freedom, but it took considerable effort.  The end result is chronicled in […]

Voter Fraud Quick Hits: SEIU Counting Ballots & Poof the Magic Ballots

And you thought the reports of voter fraud had gone away?  Well, dear reader, the reports were still coming in this week.  With some races contested a week after the election, I simply must assume that there is more malfeasance to report.  These came in earlier this week, but I’ve just now had the time to write about them. First off, Gateway Pundit has the report that SEIU members are counting ballots! Woah! SEIU members are counting the ballots in the hotly contested representative race in California. The race is still undecided. Currently, Republican David Harmer is trailing his democratic […]

Violence: The Left’s Propaganda, and the Truth

I think it’s time to revisit the violence associated with the Tea Party movement, and where exactly the fault lies. Early this week, the left finally got what it was looking for; an example of violence from the right.  After trying so very hard to provoke it for over a year and a half, they finally got their “pound of flesh,” courtesy of Lauren Valle, a Move On operative.  This pic was widely circulated, and decried by the lefty bloggers as the perfect example of how the Tea Party operates. When this story broke, I let it go, knowing that […]

Quick Hits: Problems Already Emerging with Voting

There have been two reports today that I found to be intriguing.  It seems that some people are having a rather difficult time voting for Republicans. For the first, let’s take a look at Nevada, where Harry Reid is trying to fend off Sharron Angle. The coverage is from Fox 5. LAS VEGAS — Some voters in Boulder City complained on Monday that their ballot had been cast before they went to the polls, raising questions about Clark County’s electronic voting machines. Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid’s […]
