The Ugly American - Obama's Civilian "Union" Stormtroopers
Flopping Aces ^ | 02-19-11 | Skookum

Posted on 02/19/2011 2:19:43 PM PST by Starman417


The Forsaken Of Iran, The Ugly American Protects His Unions

President Obama and the DNC are supporting unrest against legal legislative processes in Wisconsin and plan other such moves in more states that are planning to legislate financial responsibility, while ignoring the plight of demonstrators for Democracy against an Islamic Regime in Iran and the Tenth Amendment and after encouraging the overthrow of one of our most important allies in the Middle East.

There is an ugliness to this behavior that can no longer be ignored. States have sovereignty, under the Tenth Amendment that is being attacked by President Obama and his henchmen within the Democratic National Committee, the message is clear: we will attack any other states with out thugs if you try to mess with our unions or legislate financial responsibility.

The line in the sand is being drawn with the sword hand of Obama, the same one that favors Fundamentalist Islamic Regimes and unions. His, "Get in their face" strategy will hopefully not devolve into his "bring a gun" instructions, but undeniably his thug mentality projection to supporters has taken root. In this case it is designed to derail a legitimate legislative process of the state of Wisconsin that is trying desperately to stay solvent without laying off thousands of those same workers who are demonstrating.

On February 14, Democrat state legislature members left the state and went into hiding to prevent the state legislature from conducting official state business. Since a certain number of lawmakers must be present to vote, the Democrats couldn't affect the outcome, so they prevented the vote by disappearing.

President Obama's WI state director for his campaign apparatus, Dan Grandone, cried out in a dramatic emotional appeal by accusing Governor Scott Walker of "ignoring Wisconsin voices today and asking for the power to drown them out permanently tomorrow". Of course Grandone is referring to the union voices and not those of the public, since the Democrats were defeated in both the state Assembly and Senate and gave Governor Walker a victory by six points, the same margin that Democrats declared as a landslide in the election of Obama.

The protesters are carrying placards that compare Governor Walker to Hitler, Mussolini, and Mubarak while at least one placard showed Governor Walker's face in the cross hairs of a rifle scope, making a mockery of the Democrats and their denouncement of "Hate filled rhetoric".

The irony of the situation is that the unions have created a class of entitlement, a sub group of elitists whose duty it is to march and raise Hell when their position or that of their leaders, President Obama and the Democrat National Committee is threatened. Thus Obama has his army of civilian storm troopers to do his bidding, the unions and their unwavering support of their leader. These civilian storm troopers, some of whom earn over $100,000 a year in salary and benefits consider themselves above the law and normal professional conduct. Many lied by calling in sick to shut down the schools and had the audacity to march their students to the protests without parental permission. Assumed immunity from prosecution seems to also be a benefit of being part of the entitlement groups of Obama; unfortunately, this works against the rule of law and the fabric of American Society; again, the great uniter is fueling class warfare within the country and encouraging citizens to break state laws and follow the wishes of our great teleprompter reader.

Obama is trying to swim in agains’t an outgoing tide. Everyday he looks weaker, smaller and more mean spirited. Ignoring contempt orders and Federal Judicial decisions is a bad idea. In fact almost everything Barry does is a bad idea. Now he is ginning up the crowd agains’t the elected legislature of Wisconsin. Its going to end badly for Barry and as far as I’m concernd the sooner the better.

It would appear that the end game for Obama might just be so much violence and unrest in the several states in the Union that he will have no other choice but to suspend that pesky old Constitution and get things under “control”.

“The irony of the situation is that the unions have created a class of entitlement...”

Democracy don’t rule the world
You’d better get that in your head
This world is ruled by violence
But I guess that’s better left unsaid
From Broadway to the Milky Way
That’s a lot of territory indeed
And a man’s gonna do what he has to do
When he’s got a hungry mouth to feed.

Well, it’s sundown on the union
And what’s made in the USA
Sure was a good idea
‘Til greed got in the way.
—Bob Dylan

We The People also don’t want thug and goons hiding out as teachers brainwashing our children and turning them into Liberals.

ANTI-LOBBYING ACT

18 U.S. Code § 1913 (Lobbying with Appropriated Moneys) is a criminal statute applicable to all Federal executive branch employees. It prohibits the use of appropriated funds (including the use of official employee time and Government resources) for activities that are intended or designed (directly or indirectly) to influence in any manner a member of Congress, a jurisdiction, or an official of any government (Federal, state or local) to favor or oppose any legislation, law or appropriation. Here is the full text of the statute:

18 U.S. Code § 1913 - Lobbying with Appropriated Moneys

No part of the money appropriated by any enactment of Congress shall, in the absence of express authorization by Congress, be used directly or indirectly to pay for any personal service, advertisement, telegram, telephone, letter, printed or written matter, or other device, intended or designed to influence in any manner a Member of Congress, a jurisdiction, or an official of any government, to favor, adopt, or oppose, by vote or otherwise, any legislation, law, ratification, policy, or appropriation, whether before or after the introduction of any bill, measure, or resolution proposing such legislation, law, ratification, policy, or appropriation; but this shall not prevent officers or employees of the United States or of its departments or agencies from communicating to any such Member or official, at his request, or to Congress or such official, through the proper official channels, requests for any legislation, law, ratification, policy, or appropriations which they deem necessary for the efficient conduct of the public business, or from making any communication whose prohibition by this section might, in the opinion of the Attorney General, violate the Constitution or interfere with the conduct of foreign policy, counter-intelligence, intelligence, or national security activities.

GUIDELINES ON APPLYING ANTI-LOBBYING LAWS

Presidentially-Appointed, Senate-Confirmed (PAS) Officials

The anti-lobbying statute has been interpreted not to apply to activities personally undertaken by PAS employees within their areas of responsibility. Therefore, PASs may encourage the public to contact government officials in speeches and similar public communications or in private communications such as letters, telephone calls, and meetings. PASs may not direct or request other Federal employees to engage in activities that would violate the anti-lobbying laws.

Non-PAS Employees (including SES, SL, ST, Schedule C and General Schedule Employees)

May:

1. Engage in activities which provide information about pending legislation.

2. Discuss legislative issues with outside organizations and deliver speeches and make public remarks explaining proposed legislation and the administration’s position on proposed legislation. This includes participating in conferences or symposia to promote public awareness of legislative proposals, so long as they are not organized or designed for the purpose of advocating support for or opposition to such proposals.

3. Send information about proposed legislation to individuals or groups that have asked for this information, or that regularly receive information from the Department. This material may be sent by mail, facsimile, or Internet. This material may include information about the status of legislation and the administration’s position on proposed legislation but may not, directly or indirectly, encourage the public to contact government officials.

4. Through proper channels, initiate meetings or communicate directly with government officials regarding pending legislation.

5. Tell the public how they may obtain additional information regarding proposed legislation.

May NOT:

1. Participate in activities or campaigns which are designed to generate support for or opposition to pending legislation. Both the content of what is said and the context of the activity are important in determining whether the activity violates the anti-lobbying statute. Appeals to the public to support or oppose pending legislative proposals do not have to be explicit to violate the anti-lobbying statute. Where an appeal for public support or opposition can be readily inferred from the context of the activity, even though words like “write your congressional representative to express outrage about this” are not used, the activity may be a violation. Factors that may be taken into account in determining whether an activity violates these laws include the type of activity, the audience, the timing relative to the status of legislation, and the nature of the forum. Improper expenditure of any amount of appropriated funds in any form — salary, equipment, supplies, etc. — may constitute a violation of the anti-lobbying statute.

2. Participate in events or programs specifically designed to promote public support for or opposition to pending legislation.

3. Engage in a grass roots lobbying campaign involving expenditures for telegrams, letters, and other forms of communications that directly or indirectly encourage the public to contact government officials in support of or opposition to pending legislation.

4. Prepare or distribute letters, pamphlets, kits, booklets, publications, or television, radio, or film presentations that expressly ask that anyone contact government officials to support or oppose pending legislation.

5. Regardless of cost, undertake “mass-mailings” or “mass faxes” on proposed legislation to individuals or groups that do not normally receive information on educational programs or legislation from the USGS, and who have not asked for such information.

6. Initiate or coordinate meetings between members of the public and government officials to discuss proposed legislation.

7. Provide members of the public with target lists of government officials for the purpose of seeking to influence their position on pending legislation.

8. “Ghostwrite” letters to the editor, speeches, or other materials dealing with proposed legislation for anyone in a non-Federal position.

9. Request or recommend that a recipient further distribute materials regarding proposed legislation, or provide a large number of copies of such material for redistribution.

10. Provide lists of, or correspondence from, persons who favor or oppose certain legislation to groups that lobby government officials, except where the material is requested and properly made available under the Freedom of Information Act.

Listen, I know Industrial labor unions from head to toe and in my time they were patriotic and always had flags displayed at their picnics & parties or events. The ranks were filled with folks from WWII, Korea and Vietnam. The labor goons on display in Madison,WS IMHO are nothing but the same low life as Black Racist, America hater, Reverand Jeremiah Wright, POTUS Obama’s mentor and icon!!! Obama must be defeated in 2012 and....he will be, along with his Democrat Party and labor union goons and their hate America members!!! I am so ticked off at these people, not because of their issues, but because the American Flag was hardly on display. That, IMHO, is a key message as to where their real loyalty stands. Hannity, Greta take note. O’Reilly, screw him, he has jumped the shark over to the dark side fool and idiot that he is!!!

Once again, this is union busting through a stage-managed fiscal crisis created by Walker for this purpose:

See:
http://www.commondreams.org/view/2011/02/18-9

and in case you don’t want to take the time, here’s the relevant quote:

“Although Governor Walker claims Wisconsin is in desperate financial straits, the state had been coping better than most and, according to Madison’s Capital Times newspaper “has managed so well, in fact, that the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau recently released a memo detailing how the state will end the 2009-2011 budget biennium with a budget surplus.”

The paper editorialized, “To the extent that there is an imbalance — Walker claims there is a $137 million deficit — it is not because of a drop in revenues or increases in the cost of state employee contracts, benefits or pensions. It is because Walker and his allies pushed through $140 million in new spending for special-interest groups in January. If the Legislature were simply to rescind Walker’s new spending schemes — or delay their implementation until they are offset by fresh revenues — the ‘crisis’ would not exist... Unfortunately, Walker has a political agenda that relies on the fantasy that Wisconsin is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy.”

A lot of malignant narcissists are very screwed up sexually. No one can convince me that the tranny nanny/cum-male-prostitute didn’t molest Barry. Think of the hatred and fury Barry conceived—most of which had to be suppressed—toward the white mother who consigned him to the care of such a ‘man’. Is it any wonder Barry detests traditional white America? Jeremiah Wright and Barry’s bff Donald Young comprise the twin pillars of Barry’s psyche: hatred for traditional America and closeted homosexuality. He is one twisted individual.

Is it just me, or is Obama looking goofier and weirder in his photographs lately? While I remain convinced he will run in 2012, I do think he is mentally and emotionally deteriorating. No wonder his top advisers quit in droves. It must be exhausting to ride herd on such a loose canon.

It's interesting that you have had no responses to your post.

I am appalled that so few conservatives understand the threat that collectivist, socialist-funded, and GODLESS government schooling poses to our nation.

Isn't is obvious? If a child attends a collectivist, socialist, GODLESS, government owned and run school that is managed by voting mob “comrade committees” ( school boards) he WILL learn the following:

** to be comfortable with collectivism.

** to be comfortable with socialism. Hey! If government can use armed police threat to take money from a neighbor for schooling, why not a thousand other things? Huh? ( Is a “duh” needed here?)

** to be comfortable with thinking GODLESSLY!

** to be comfortable with government ownership and management of their lives,...and...now, with Obamacare even their deaths.

** to be comfortable with government compulsion and regulation of his thoughts and beliefs, and fundamental freedom of conscience.

** to be comfortable with the voting mob telling them what they must think and believe.

Our nation can survive a terrorist attack. ( Didn't we survive Katrina?) We would vigorously fight back against a foreign invasion... But...We will NOT NOT NOT survive if we allow our nation's children to attend GODLESS, socialist-funded, collectivist managed temples of state worship! ( misnamed “schools”)!

Why is it that conservatives continue to believe that their collectivist, socialist, GODLESS temple of state worship is somehow different? ...or...That their local government indoctrination center can be reformed? UNBELIEVABLE.

I suppose the free babysitting is powerfully addictive.

Well I couldn’t agree more that Soetoro is a coward. Unfortunately, he’ll be the last to know he might lose in 2012. This is for two reasons. (1) The strategy right now is to get such a RINO nominated that a third party arises, in which case Soetoro wins a la Deval Patrick, gov of MA. (2) Barry has so surrounded himself with yes-men and yes-women that they will be assuring him of a victory even if he’s down 40 pts in the polls.

I have another nit to pick also. You wrote:

I prefer to term it a Clintonian plurality win - similar to 1992 when Perot gained approx 20% of the non-leftist vote.

I'm assuming Dems in open primary states will go heavy for Romney as a 2012 version of Operation Chaos, although a lot of FReepers have told me this won't happen.

Exactly. The odds of Deval Patrick getting a second term were slim to none, given the basket case economy of MA and his abysmally low poll numbers going into the election. But this Axelrod prodigy pulled it off because the anti-Patrick vote split between the Republican and the Independent. That is guaranteed the strategy they’ll try to pull on us in 2012. Maybe the current RNC head will do better than Steele at averting crisis. We shall see.

No worker in the US should be held hostage to unions period, compulsory union dues are unconstitutional under the first and 14th amendments, and the unions need to be stripped of their ability to steal money from workers paychecks on a national level.

If the workers love unions so much they will be happy to voluntarily send them dues, there nothing patently illegal about a POTUS issuing an executive order immediately ending withholding of union dues nationwide.

Lets fight it out in the courts, and lets make it a campaign issue, with the promise to end compulsory withholding of union dues one of the first acts of the new GOP Administration.

Its stupid to allow the left(Communists) to use the same mechanism the IRS uses to fund themselves.

I see two ways a 3rd party candidate goes forward:

If the Republican nominee is Romney, or similar, it’s guaranteed there will be a Tea Party challenger. I expect Dems in open primary states to go hard for Romney as a 2012 version of Operation Chaos.

If the Republican nominee is a legitimate conservative, a Soros funded MSM backed “independent” will surface.

Those are good predictions. You just know they think it’s a lock—heads they win tails we lose. They figure another RINO will sink us for sure, but that a TEA party-acceptable candidate will be too conservative for the masses. This is going to be a very treacherous election. There is a lot of money and power amassed against us. It’s going to take just the right primary candidate to pull it off. Lets hope it happens.

I would think that you are exactly right. The GOP could produce ads, that should run 24/7 that would end the DemocRATs once and for all. The circle of union civil service, DemocRAT politicians who negotiate with the same unions who helped get them elected should be illegal. Since the interests of the taxpayers are supposed to be protected by those same politicians, who are indebted to the unions is tantamount to price fixing. There is collusion between the two parties, adverse to the interests of the taxpayers. This is a RICO Act material.

I would think that you are exactly right. The GOP could produce ads, that should run 24/7 that would end the DemocRATs once and for all. The circle of union civil service, DemocRAT politicians who negotiate with the same unions who helped get them elected should be illegal. Since the interests of the taxpayers are supposed to be protected by those same politicians, who are indebted to the unions is tantamount to price fixing. There is collusion between the two parties, adverse to the interests of the taxpayers. This is a RICO Act material.

Isn't the behavior of these teachers plainly evident to conservatives? These are the bullies ( the sloppy pigs that trashed their capitol) that are TEACHING their CHILDREN!!

Unbelievable!

I am reminded of the 2000 Democratic convention. Do you remember that teachers were the single largest occupation represented at that convention? They formed the **majority** of all of the California delegates.

Do you remember the brightly colored PRO-ABORTION pins and signs on the lapels and hats? Do you remember how these teachers wildly cheered the Philander in Chief and pro-abortion Clinton as he made his way through the bowels of the convention center?

These teachers SUPPORT stabbing the skulls of infants seconds before their first breath, scrambling their brains, and sucking the gelatinous mass into surgical suction jars.

Do they serve cookies and milk with that? ( Just wondering.)

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE TEACHING OUR NATION'S CHILDREN. THEIR UNIONS ARE WHAT THEY ARE, AND SUPPORT WHAT THEY DO, BECAUSE TEACHERS MADE THEM THAT WAY.

Parents did not make pro-partial birth and communist supporting teachers unions what they are. Legislators did not. The voters did not,...and.. Certainly the kids didn't.

Teachers unions, and the unions’ political platforms, are what are because a **MAJORITY** OF TEACHERS WANT IT THAT WAY!!

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE TEACHING THE NEXT GENERATION OF CITIZENS!!!

Why are conservative so STUPID that they turn their own children over to these monsters? Why do they allow these temples of GODLESS state worship ( misnamed “schools”) to remain open. Why do they think that their child's school is “different”?

Yes! I am shouting, jumping up and down, and having a fit!

The GODLESS government temples of state worship ( misnamed “schools”) are, indeed, FREEDOM'S MOST SERIOUS THREAT!

You do that so well, wintertime!!!

It is totally inane to me that more conservatives don’t homeschool. Maybe with the economy the way it is, more moms will be home, and homeschooling will make more sense to them. It doesn’t have to cost a lot, either.

The one thing that homeschooling has provided for me and my husband, is the sound bonds formed with the extra time we have as a family. Truly, this honors God.

But the Dems and the teachers unions goes back to Jimmah Carter, and his Dept of Ed that has destroyed the school system all these years.

Apparently, old habits die hard, and the government commies know it too well. Like here in California, the legislators think the kiddies need to have homo’s as role models.

How can any sane Christian keep a child in such a Godless system? I don’t know.

Obama’s behavior in supporting unions versus states is just another indication he is not one of us, never was, and is a usurper.

Had enough of the communists in this administration? In my estimation there already is enough dirt on Obama to impeach him. We need some patriotic, resourceful constitutional lawyers across the States to pool their resources with our donations who could start initial preparations to bring solid impeachment proceedings.

The USSC has already scheduled a discussion on his eligibility to begin on March 4.

Let’s approach it on his record as well. He has jeopardized our national defense security, our economic security on all levels, our states’ rights and states’ sovereignty, our energy policy which is crippling our economy and our national defense, our first amendment rights, his treasury policy is destroying the US Dollar along with the Fed with its quantitative Easing WMD (those who have saved all of their lives will be wiped out in a year or few years at the most), annually overspending his budget by well over one trillion dollars, but wait, there’s more, it continues, day and night, the national nightmare.
