SEIU thanks Marxist organization

I still  remain puzzled how the SEIU can attract so many Blue Collar workers. These are not the Blue Collars that I grew up with. Yes, they would fight for hours and benefits. Communism? No, they were pure Red, White and Blue. Here we go:

New Zeal:

I have long contended that the US’ largest and most militant labor organization the Service Employees International Union, is allied to, or subordinate to, the country’s largest Marxist organization – Democratic Socialists of America.

I highly recommend a look at the following issue link below of the DSA’s publication. Just in case anyone is still out there wondering.

Here is proof of this connection, from the latest edition of DSA’s Democratic Left, Winter 2011/2012, page 11:

Detroit DSA leader David Green wrote in Democratic Left, Spring 2007:

Our goal as socialists is to abolish private ownership of the means of production. Our immediate task is to limit the capitalist class’s prerogatives in the workplace…In the short run we must at least minimize the degree of exploitation of workers by capitalists. We can accomplish this by promoting full employment policies, passing local living wage laws, but most of all by increasing the union movement’s power…

Anarchy comes to Wisconsin – what will be next? ?

It is now official. Anarchy has begun in Wisconsin. When elected officials run out-of-state to avoid carrying out their duties, it is a sad state of affairs. When the news no longer focuses on the lawlessness that is happening, and prefers to advocate for insurrection, we have much to fear. Fox also has vids of Docs committing fraud and now this one. This is the test of our democracy. Ms Frances Fox Piven who wrote “Mobilizing the Jobless,” must be delighted:

“So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs”?

Gateway Pundit:

Obama’s Wisconsin Strategy? The Chicago Way?

This is a disturbing find. It is amazing. You do not like the results of the election last November? Then simply vote them out the next election. The reports regarding the Wisconsin issue fail to focus that the Democrats are acting like a third tier Banana Republic. Negotiate, Negotiate.. We had an election.. we had a result.. now are we to have Democratic Nullification? Remember– Elections have consequences, You lost.

Andy Stern Says Worshipping the Market’ Has Failed America

Andy Stern, A Member of Obama’s Fiscal Responsibility Commission, Says ‘Worshipping the Market’ Has Failed America.

This is about as much as one can take from washington D.C. on a given day. The one joy will be to watch the election returns tonight, and hopefully bask in the possibility that we are coming to an end of our dictatorship that includes all branches of government. Let us stop this train wreck come November by at least denying funding for this monstrosity called the Democratic party.

Andy Stern, the former head of the Service Employees International Union who now sits on President Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, said the United States needs an economic plan that does not include “worshipping” the free market.
“America needs a 21st century economic plan because we now know the market-worshipping, privatizing, de-regulating, dehumanizing American financial plan has failed and should never be revived, worshipping the market again,” Stern said in remarks at the annual conference of the liberal activist group Campaign for America’s Future in Washington on Monday.

SEIU Boss Open to Serving on Obama Deficit Reduction Commission, Supports More Deficit Spending

There is no shame. In one of the most bizarre considerations, Andy Stern for this position? Payback big time for the Unions. Stern said Tuesday he expected he would be able to remain in charge of the SEIU while serving on the commission. “Yeah,” he said, “I think it’s—the members of Congress are serving. I assume they’re not giving up their positions. I have no intentions of giving up mine.”  Bet some of that 30 billion in slush funds Obama wants off the books finds its way to SEIU, See our earlier post: Obama and the Slush Fund.

Service Employees International Union (SEIU) President Andy Stern said he was open to serving on President Barack Obama’s proposed deficit reduction commission, after it was reported that the White House was considering him for the post. He was on Capitol Hill on Tuesday advocating for additional deficit spending to stimulate job creation.

When the White House released its visitor logs last October, Stern was found to be the most frequent guest, stopping by 22 times—more than advisor John Podesta or former Majority Leader Tom Daschle—to visit Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, budget chief Pete Orszag, and seven times, President Obama

“I am absolutely concerned about the long-term economic stability of this country, including the deficit,” said Stern. “I don’t, however, think there’s any way out of this situation without job growth and wage growth. I don’t think we can cut, borrow, or spend our way out until we have Americans back at work and gaining raises.”

Democrats Health strategy written in Prison

Last night, Glenn Beck had another one of the plots that was hatched years ago. While in prison, an Alinsky follower, Robert Creamer put pen to paper and worked on “the plan” This whole affair has been well orchestrated. Big Government broke the story. P.S. Creamer made the list for the State Dinner

Rep. Schakowsky’s husband, Robert Creamer, used to be the leader of Citizen Action/Illinois. He also founded its predecessor, Illinois Public Action, in which Ms. Schakowsky served as Program Director. He runs a political consulting firm, the Strategic Consulting Group, which lists ACORN and the SEIU among its clients and which made $541,000 working for disgraced former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich.

  • “We must create a national consensus that health care is a right, not a commodity; and that government must guarantee that right.”
  • “We must create a national consensus that the health care system is in crisis.”
  • “Our messaging program over the next two years should focus heavily on reducing the credibility of the health insurance industry and focusing on the failure of private health insurance.”
  • “We need to systematically forge relationships with large sectors of the business/employer community.”
  • “We need to convince political leaders that they owe their elections, at least in part, to the groundswell of support of [sic] universal health care, and that they face political peril if they fail to deliver on universal health care in 2009.”
  • “We need not agree in advance on the components of a plan, but we must foster a process that can ultimately yield consensus.”
  • “Over the next two years, we must design and organize a massive national field program.”
  • “We must focus especially on the mobilization of the labor movement and the faith community.”
  • “We must systematically leverage the connections and resources of a massive array of institutions and organizations of all types.”
  • “To be successful, we must put in place commitments for hundreds of millions of dollars to be used to finance paid communications and mobilization once the battle is joined.”

Creamer adds: “To win we must not just generate understanding, but emotion—fear, revulsion, anger, disgust.”

While in prison—or “forced sabbatical,” he called it—Creamer wrote a lengthy political manual, Listen to Your Mother: Stand Up Straight! How Progressives Can Win (Seven Locks Press, 2007).

The book was endorsed by leading Democrats and their allies, including SEIU boss Andy Stern—the most frequent visitor thus far to the Obama White House—and chief Obama strategist David Axelrod, who noted that Creamer’s tome “provides a blueprint for future victories.”

In the book, Creamer draws lessons from decades of experience on the radical left, including the teachings of arch-radical Saul Alinsky, and several episodes from Rep. Schakowsky’s political career. He also lays out a “Progressive Agenda for Structural Change,” which includes a ten-point plan for foisting universal health care on the American people in 2009.

Opie & Andy Who is SEIU Andy Stern?

Today’s buzz on Acorn – It has been doing a little house cleaning on its website. Whoops.  All of a sudden all information relating to its connections to SEIU have been ‘scrubbed’.   A look behind the curtain reveals there might be some real cleaning up going with Andy Stern.
Andy SternWho is Andy Stern?
– SEIU Boss
– Spent $60 million to help elect Obama
– Brags he visits with the President Weekly ( oh yeah that General McChrystal, once…nice huh?)
– Close ties with the Dems to get the Public Option into HealthCare
“We have suspended all contracts and active work with ACORN,” pending the results of a panel of inquiry looking into ACORN. SEIU boss Andy Stern sits on that supposedly independent panel.
Who Gets the House?
ACORN may have been trying to cover up which organizations are part of ACORN by scrubbing its website. Not only did ACORN and SEIU share board members, but until a month ago they appeared to share the same headquarters address in New Orleans: 1024 Elysian Fields Ave. This is, of course, the same address from which Barack Obama received his first out-of-state donation (from the SEIU Local 880 Political Fund) back in November 1995 (with the exception of what appears to be a September 1995 donation from his college roommate or his family in New York).
In his memoir, SEIU czar Andy Stern revealed , union operators will quickly abandon “the power of persuasion” for “the persuasion of power.”  Nice huh?
The Days of Wine and Roses!
The Obama-Stern relationship has emerged as one of the most curious within the young administration.The SEIU spent $60 million to help elect Obama, according to the union. Stern said the group deployed 100,000 volunteers during the campaign, including 3,000 who worked on the election full time.
What Andy Got for his Bucks
Steps away from the Finance Committee markup, SEIU Chief Andy Stern ducked into a private meeting Thursday with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.).
Stern told Pulse colleague Manu Raju that he was working with the senators and “trying to improve [the bill] as we speak.”
On Sen. Tom Carper’s proposal to allow states to opt into a government plan, Stern said states should be allowed to opt out of the government plan.
“I’m in the fourth way option,” Stern said. “If Alabama doesn’t want a public option, they should consider that question. I don’t think the citizens of Alabama will want out. … I think we need a public option. I don’t think it needs to be triggered. The question is if there are certain state legislators who think it’s not appropriate for their state, they should have a right in some fashion to deal with it.”
