Obama bows to union political power

Job-killers OK Obama overspending

Unions spent a fortune helping Barack Obama get elected. He owes them. Now, they want their payoff. Union leaders remind Obama of his debt to them on weekly basis.

The most frequent visitor to the Obama White House is Andy Stern, the president of the Service Employees International Union. Stern visited the White House 22 different times during his first nine months in office. Richard Trumka, the new president of the AFL-CIO, has already visited at least eight times.

These men wield great power over the U.S. President. They tell him what they need, and he delivers. “We're going to make sure that in every policy, every decision, we don't lose sight of the folks that brought us to the dance,” Vice President Joe Biden told the AFL-CIO Executive Committee in March. That promise has held true.

The $787 billion stimulus bill, which has failed miserably at stimulating the economy, was a union payoff. Obama issued an executive order tied to the bill that "strongly encourages" hiring union labor for all government contracts. The bill also demands all construction contracts pay union wages.

Obama told us Porkulus would create jobs and keep unemployment below 8%. It did not. It rewarded unions, which make up only 12.5% of the workforce.

Other union payoffs include the auto company bailouts and cutting the D.C. school voucher program. The United Steelworkers union demanded he impose a tariff of Chinese tire imports. He complied. The result? Higher prices for U.S. consumers during terrible economic times. The rest of the country be damned, as long as the unions are happy.

Obama-ACORN: We will overwhelm you

Meet the Cloward-Piven Strategy

In the 1960s, two Columbia liberals named Cloward and Piven devised what became known as their "strategy." It was designed as an experiment on how to destroy capitalism by making lower-income people aware of all the goods they could get from the government while contributing nothing. The strategy was tried in New York City in the 1970s and succeeded in bankrupting the city.

The same strategy is being applied to our nation now in several ways with the identical purpose. This administration's sole purpose is to create dependence on the federal government by enough people so as to ensure themselves power for the long term. Purely and simply, the plan is long-term control of the entire country.

The Cloward-Piven Strategy is a founding principle of the ACORN group, and President Obama was and still is in concert with all involved. If we don't reverse this course, it may require pitchforks and torches.

Teachers union-dues and fees misused

Ties to union thugs trigger Corzine 'Electile Dysfunction'

An interesting document found its way to my inbox over the weekend. It was a PowerPoint presentation of an analysis done by the New Jersey Education Association, regarding its efforts to re-elect Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine.

The document can be found at NEAexposed.com.

Citing “Electile Dysfunction,” meaning the polls were telling them that voters, including teachers, weren’t as enthusiastic about Corzine as they would like, the union’s Director of Government Relations, Ginger Gold Schnitzer, proposed a double-dose remedy: “A robust member-to-member campaign,” followed by “an independent communications campaign to inoculate the public.”

The first dose of the union’s plan was to appeal to its members. The radical community organizer Saul Alinsky taught the NEA that the trick to “organizing people is to appeal to their self-interest.” Thus, the union promoted Corzine’s pro-union “accomplishments,” like investing $3 billion into public pensions, increasing school funding, increasing school construction, expanded pre-kindergarten programs, opposition to vouchers, and free medical benefits for teacher for life.

Oddly, the union didn’t cite any accomplishment that actually helped students.

To “inoculate” the public, the union targeted women under 45. It purchased advertising on cable channels typically watched by women, like the Food Network, HGTV, Lifetime, TLC, Bravo and a few others. Even though the ads were purchased by an “education” organization, they focused completely on issues they thought would sway women to Corzine, like health care and family leave. The ads also directed viewers to a website operated by a group called “NJ Kids and Families.”
