Day By Day April 20, 2010 – Keep It Union

Chris, more like KEEP IT LEFT and the LEFT’S attack on the Tea Party movement.
A seemingly grassroots organization that’s mounted an online campaign to counter the tea party movement is actually the front end of an elaborate scheme that funnels funds — including sizable labor union contributions — through the offices of a prominent Democratic party lawyer.

A Web site popped up in January dedicated to preventing the tea party’s “radical” and “dangerous” ideas from “gaining legislative traction,” targeting GOP candidates in Illinois for the firing squad.

“This movement is a fad,” proclaims TheTeaPartyIsOver.org, which was established by the American Public Policy Center (APPC), a D.C.-based campaign shop that few people have ever heard of.

But a close look reveals the APPC’s place in a complex network of money flowing from the mountainous coffers of the country’s biggest labor unions into political slush funds for Democratic activists.

Somehow I think the internet, blogs and Twitter will be the undoing of the Saul Alinsky folks and their faux astro-turf operation.

Sunlight is a great disinfectant.

What does the American public expect from the President and the Obama Administration?

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) bought and paid for the Presidency and the Democrats massive Congressional majority and they want pay back. Obama is one of them – a community organizer – remember?

The SEIU and other unions want to regain their membership numbers in the private economy like they had in the 1930’s – 50’s but this time through government mandate. Union membership has steadily eroded through the last decades as American private business shunned the unions to better control costs and be competitive.

Government employment, including education has been the last refuge of the LEFT-leaning unions. Now, they want to expand and make YOU join. And, of course, pay your membership dues and invest your pension with the union bosses.

No great mystery here. But will American voters tolerate the power grab?

Chris, Big Labor, like the Service Employees Internation Union (SEIU) have a history of corruption, what should we expect? But, American voters voted for Chicagoland POL anyway.

However, President Obama is cratering in the polls.

Those chickens that Obama’s Pastor Jeremiah Wright were talking about ARE coming home to roost. Watch Big Labor now try to prop up their man in the White House.

Day By Day by Chris Muir

Besides the obvious SEIU union thuggery during the Obamacare debate, I see on today’s morning Obama News (NBC television) that the Obama Justice Department and Congress are ramping up the investigation of Karl Rove and Harriet Miers. Allegedly they were involved during the Bush Administration in the politicization of the United States Attorneys – particulary the firing of such in New Mexico.

Hello – the United States Attorneys serve at the pleasure of the President. Remember when Bill Clinton assumed the Presidency and on day one he fired ALL of the United States Attorneys?

I find it particularly interesting that in the Obama Administration Justice Department, the Black Panthers are receiving a “free ride” and that hater Karl Rove receives so much attention.

Is there any wonder why President Obama is sinking like a stone in the Presidential approval polls?

Was the SEIU an Obama – Blagojevich Intermediary for the Senate Seat? Part Two

Obama and hot rod

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and President-Elect Barack Obama

The New York Times is out with a piece today that dots the I’s and crosses the T’s on the SEIU’s involvment with Hot Rod Blagojevich, Valerie Jarrett and the Obama Transition Team.

The Service Employees International Union has long boasted that it is on the cutting edge of the labor movement. But it found itself badly embarrassed this week when it was linked by name to Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich’s maneuvering to secure some financial gain from picking the next Senator from Illinois.

The federal criminal complaint filed against Mr. Blagojevich said his chief of staff, John Harris, had suggested to a service employees’ official that the union should help make the governor the head of Change to Win, the federation of seven unions that broke away from the A.F.L.-C.I.O. The complaint said Mr. Blagojevich was seeking a position that paid $250,000 to $300,000 a year.

In exchange, the complaint strongly suggested, the service employees union and Change to Win would help persuade Mr. Blagojevich to name Valerie Jarrett, President-elect Barack Obama’s first choice, as the state’s new senator. And the union would get help from the Obama administration, presumably for its legislative agenda.

Several union officials in Chicago and Washington said that the service employees official approached by Mr. Harris was Tom Balanoff, the president of the union’s giant janitors’ local in Chicago and head of the union’s Illinois state council. Mr. Balanoff, one of the union officials closest to Mr. Obama, is widely seen as an aggressive, successful labor leader, who has helped unionize thousands of janitors not just in the Chicago area but also in Texas.

Read the entire piece.

Interesting that the SEIU can be the “DEAL” makers absolving Obama and his staff from any of the dirty business of getting Valerie Jarrett, an Obama friend, appointed to his Senate seat. Plus, there is deniability which Obama did earlier today.

A surrogate “pay for play” deal maker for BlagoGate.

Sure beats taking the fall yourself……

Stay tuned…….
