Skip to comments.EXPOSED: Former SEIU Official’s Alleged Plan To Destroy America’s Economy?
Posted on 03/22/2011 9:36:49 AM PDT by Stoutcat
For those of you who have thought conservatives have been over-reacting to Barack Obamas ongoing tied-at-the-hip relationship to unions specifically SEIU: Sit down, shut up and LEARN!
Its an event that will undoubtedly cause Eric Holder to have to bury his head at least 2 feet below See-level (using union thugs to shield him, no doubt).
According to Business Insider, The Blaze and Glenn Beck, former SEIU officer Steve Lerner has been caught on audio tape (recorded at in a closed session at a Pace University forum last weekend) detailing a secret plan that is designed to:
o Nuke the Stock Market
o Destroy JP Morgan-Chase
o Destabilize our economy...
...May I suggest, Mr. Holder, that not all terrorists use guns. Governments can be toppled using many different types of weapons and economic terrorism is one of them. May I also suggest, Mr. Holder, what you have here is nothing less than a conspiracy IN MOTION to do just that: Use economic terrorism to bring down the government of the United States.
Nothing less than a full, public investigation, resulting in whatever criminal charges or, perhaps, charges of treason apply will be accepted by the American public.
Pardon my choice of words, but the you-know-what has just hit the fan, Mr. Holder. If you do anything to try to spin or lessen the preception of this clear and present danger, you are in violation of your oath of office.
To ALL Americans: The message of the American public to the Justice Department needs to be clear and united:
Do your job, Mr. Holder. DO YOUR JOB.

Nothing to see here. Move along.
Reported at that link with a transcript of some of the tape. There’s more, I believe. The link to the audio is there, too. Ms. Fox-Piven was in attendance at that conclave.
Well, personally, I think they should just go right ahead with their little plot. They will be hammered so far down into the ground, so quickly, that their pointy little heads will emerge in China.
Ungovernability=martial law. In very liberal, progressive NYC. Shut the city down. Shut Wall Street down. Perhaps all trading will become virtual. Jobs will vanish. Not just brokerage and banking jobs, but taxis, restaurants, shops, personal services. The very folks they target can retreat to their homes or second homes elsewhere. Or perhaps they will leave the country, taking all their capital with them. They have 5 weeks to prepare, after all. Everyone will know whom to blame: the unions and the progressives. I am also amused that they seem to believe that all brokers, bankers and CEOs are Republicans when the truth is there are plenty of Democrats with power and wealth. Way to unite both parties, folks.
I wonder if the state officials in NJ and CT will allow the thugs to harass individuals in their states, if they choose to confront people on their front lawns, as they have already? Will they shut down the entire NE USA? Do the unions want to bet how far they can go before their progressive government leaders condemn them for being extreme, as they rush to save their own jobs?
Perhaps these geniuses can take their fight to the Internet and hack and execute Denial of Service attacks on their bankster and corporate targets. That could get them terrorism charges under the Patriot Act as enforced by their own administration.
These idiots always think no one will oppose them. They believe everyone is so worried about making more money that they will cave to extortion and never fight back. They believe that the need for more money will insure that the producers keep working while handing ransom over to the thugs. They do not understand that money means you can survive a siege, while the union funds will be quickly depleted as people lose jobs due to the closing of businesses. People without jobs do not pay union dues. Their votes are worthless to the politicians if there is no booty to be had from the wealthy corporations. Let’s guess whom the politicians will choose to support.
Go for it.
I can’t think of a better way to polarize progressives and knee-jerk liberal Democrat voters and politicians while giving them cover for common cause with RINOs and conservatives, alike, than to attack them on their home turf.
You make a lot of good points. Glad you’re “reformed”, btw. :)
Isn’t it amazing how these pointy-headed elites act as if they’re just one of the “folks”? They themselves are wealthy. Lerner and his ilk. Andy Stern.
When they attack the stock market, they’re attacking the pension funds of their own members. The 401k’s of the middle class. Of course, that’s their plan—to create two castes. The ruling elite (themselves) and everybody else, who will universally be poor and dependent upon the ruling elite for crumbs.
With the new UN criterion, if a government attacks its own citizens the UN will respond on the side of the attacked, does that mean that if Bloomberg sets the police on any SEIU rioters in NYC, then the UN will call in NATO strikes on City Hall?
Governments can no longer defend themselves against treason, sedition or violent overthrow. The UN will stand with the “rebels”.
Why do these left wing bozos not realize their plot will hurt the middleclass “working families” the most? Just where do these idiots think the union pension funds are invested? Where do the teachers and the fire fighters have their mortgages and what meager savings they do have? Whose credit cards will be hit with demands for full payment if Chase needs cash?
And who the hell do they think they are that they can engineer their fantasies to fruition now at the expense of others?
Holder in a real world (not anywhere near here) would be sitting in the brig for contempt of the constitution (if not treason) just on his statements in the last month and a half.
My thinking is if true these statements and plans will ensure that when common sense returns (and it will) these clowns will be hunted down and justice will be metered out with extreme prejudice.
Of course they do. That's the POINT.
Just where do these idiots think the union pension funds are invested? Where do the teachers and the fire fighters have their mortgages and what meager savings they do have? Whose credit cards will be hit with demands for full payment if Chase needs cash?
How else do you expect to drive them out into the streets busting stuff up and demanding even more "change"? You've got to strip them of what assets they do have. Then they can be driven like panicked sheep.
That's the end game.
I’m afraid that may not be the case in our country. I’m pretty sure the UN will side with Obama when outraged citizens take to the streets to overthrow him.
I hope not because there are a lot of good old boys down South react the same way to a blue helmet as a bull does to a red flag.
Blue helmets make great long range targets...
On the left, one is purged for making good points. Only parrots are accepted.
For 3 years now, I have had an unshakable vision of blue helmets in American streets. Needless to say, even conservatives have said that was going too far. I stand by this gut feel. We are watching it being set up.
The UN ROE are in our favor, plus they usually decamp at the first sight of a firearm, so I am hoping that it serves to mobilize the presently apathetic Americans who surround us.
If the UN would side with the American citizens in the event of a government/union beat down, would they declare zerO persona non grata?
(Things that make you go H’mmmmmmmmmmm).
Sure. The UN will side with Obama if the outraged citizens are the People—you know, those racists who cling to their guns, religion, and xenophobia.
And of course the UN will also side with Obama, being who and what they are, when the union thug/community-organized Marxist progressives riot in the streets in their Alinsky-like, community-organized-by Obama uprising.
What will they call it? The Odyssey Dawn Revolution?
The UN will side with the union thugs, with the Marxists, with Eric Holder’s “people”, if Bloomberg or the governors in any of the states try to maintain order.
I’m only half joking.
Parrots! Good one. So are you a reformedparrot, too? :)
My problem (well, one of them), is I was a lousy parrot.
I was one of those energetic, entrepreneurial types who really believed that bootstrap capitalism was the best way to success for anyone in pre-Obama America. I still believe that and it is still true, if to a lesser extent than before the zerO. In fact, I believe that micro-capitalism that holds that every person is their own means of production would solve a lot of the world’s problems, minus all the governmental incompetence that restricts the human spirit.
It was like garlic to a vampire, as far as the progs were concerned. They do not suffer innovation gladly. They take orders and they give orders, which are mostly: take orders. I took it personally. Then I met my husband and discovered that he had had the same experience in a different time and place, but with the same old Left. He was told not to have ideas. He also took it personally.
We spent about 10 years sniping from the gallery and we were *tolerated* for that period. Later, we realized that they had a difficult time accepting that anyone could be creative and educated and not agree with them. Then we began hearing that they considered us *lost* to them. So, they reverted to type and we experienced a period of active marginalization, where they attacked us personally in social and economic venues. We withdrew and managed to continue our lives and careers without them. Of course, now, those careers are really anemic and our lives much more circumscribed, but we know it isn’t personal.
Now, I cannot say we experienced love and roses from the organized political GOP. More like indifference. In our area, they are moribund. But, we have conservative friends who are interesting, creative and supportive and while we are all mostly curmudgeons, we manage to network and even to get a few things accomplished.
It is much preferable to the puppet theater of the left.
I chose my FR handle because I hoped to make use of my experience on the left and I wanted to be upfront about it. Now, of course, there are so many of us here and Beck has taken on the job of educating folks even beyond what Horowitz has already done, I often think about changing the handle. But, it isn’t that important and I don’t want to have to explain to the FRiends I’ve made that I am “the FReeper formerly known as reformedliberal”.
I hear you! In a long past life, when I was little more than a child, I might have been called a “liberal” but I don’t think I ever REALLY was. Young people, unfortunately, tend not to think deeply and do act/react emotionally and idealistically, which is, of course, not realistic.
Your story is sad but common: How you were marginalized by those you thought were friends. It is unfortunately true that independent thought is not a hallmark of liberalism or progressivism. Lockstep is the word. Parrot is another.
The GOP is moribund here, too. Useless, actually. Lame. Hapless. AWOL. No fight. No guts. Haven’t a clue how to speak or fight. The Tea Party and people like Palin and Cain (even Trump) give me some hope because at least they put up their dukes and make an effort to stand against the corrupt media and the lies they tell.
Holder is really going to be conflicted on this one:
On one hand, Steve Lerner is not a Black radical (i.e., not one of “their people”), so there would be a minute chance Holder would investigate.
On the other hand, SEIU is helping Chairman O destroy America, so he probaably won’t.
