CAUGHT ON TAPE: Former SEIU Official Reveals Secret Plan To Destroy JP Morgan, Crash The Stock Market, And Redistribute Wealth In America

A former official of one of the country's most-powerful unions, SEIU, has a secret plan to "destabilize" the country.

The plan is designed to destroy JP Morgan, nuke the stock market, and weaken Wall Street's grip on power, thus creating the conditions necessary for a redistribution of wealth and a change in government.

The former SEIU official, Stephen Lerner, spoke in a closed session at a Pace University forum last weekend. The Blaze procured what appears to be a tape of Lerner's remarks. Many Americans will undoubtely sympathize with and support them. Still, the "destabilization" plan is startling in its specificity, especially coming so close on the heels of the financial crisis.

Why Unions will never rule America, at least for very long.
Plan A:
1) Destroy the wealth!
2) Redistribute it!
3) D’OH!!

Why union leaders are descended from now-extinct barbarian tribes- A barbarian’s battle plan:
1) Rape
2) Burn
3) Pillage and loot
4) D’OH!

At the very least, any such plan should draw the attention of the FBI and/or Treasury Department.

I listened to a YouTube recording and if this what it seems to be then it is a fragrant act of subversion for which there are laws put into use against the subversives of the 60’s and 70’s.(think Weathermen, SDS, Black Power, etc)

Lerner is one of the people I refer to in my tagline.

If Lerner collapsed the economy, he wouldn’t be the one picking up the pieces.

Stephen Lerner is an economic moron.

What he proposes would (with the exception of instability driving down the market) destroy the wealth he intends to steal.

This moron thinks that "money" is in the hands of the rich, like Scrooge McDuck had giant money bins in the basement of his mansion.

Unions are almost dead. We cannot survive doing what we do but the simple fact of the matter is community organizations are almost dead also. And if you think about what we need to do

So, the unions will be inneffective and community organizers are also losing their effectiveness. The parasite called Marxism must find another host to reach its goals.

Union members have been played like a fiddle.

Not if consider what Beck has been saying all along, that they want to overwhelm the system until it colapses and then rebuild it in some utopian socialistic image.

A useful idiot in other words.

Yes, I did consider that.

Follow me here, Beck is right on the money on analysis, they will try to destroy and then rebuild.

My point is the rebuild will always fail. Historically the rebuilds have failed, Russia's was the USSR, Cuba, Zimbabwe..... Repudiating debt and theft always makes the entity untrustworthy for the future and without trust it's cash (gold, not paper) in advance or nobody does business with ya, and your captive population has no gold either.

You're all screwed.

Well, yes, I did. I could have demanded a sedition or RICO prosecution in bold caps and a large font.

How long would I have to wait for a Democrat to answer my call?

Assuming Republicans sweep all states and the Federal government in 2012, how long before a pubbie initiates a prosecution? Remember Bush? only pubbies got prosecuted, no Rats. I'm not gonna live that long, and if I did there would be at least two union thugs on the jury, and the Rats WILL nullify.

However, I could point out the even if the union thug wins, he loses, absolutely surely.

Here is Steve Lerner as a spokesman for the SEIU on the SEIU website.

Can someone with skills archive this video before the SEIU wipes this from their website trying to distance themselves from Lerner?

The media reported that Brazil ADORES and LOVES OBAMA.

There was anti-Obama protesting. The media ignored it and reported Obama playing soccer with kids.

This story (unless maybe Drudge put it up) will be ignored as well.

I do believe there are threats. But I don’t believe they began or end with Boehner. Soros has something he is holding over the heads of both the blue-dog democrats who have been falling on their swords in an unprecedented way for the past 2 years AND over the heads of even people who have proven their conservative mettle over the years, which can be seen most clearly by the way they allowed the scorched-earth congress even when there was no political price to be paid for resisting at that point.

The next election is 2 years away, and for most of them even farther than that. It was not politics that got them to give in. There is something more going on.

The more I see, the more I think Soros has this nation hostage under the threat of another run on the bank like the one that he and his Islamist allies orchestrated in September of 2008 to overcome Palin’s effect on the polls and get Obama elected.

As long as Obama is in office nothing serious will be done to get rid of our financial vulnerability. It is our financial vulnerability that keeps the judges and media quiet about Obama’s eligibility and keeps Congress from doing anything to fix the mess.

It’s a vicious circle Soros has us in. He’s shown the leaders that he has the power to break our economy. He says if we don’t let Obama stay in power he will pull the trigger. If we leave Obama in power he will kill America’s infrastructure and make sure that Soros keeps his power to break our economy.

We are in a huge, huge mess. The republicans had the biggest landslide in this country’s history, and for the 2 months of lame-duck Congress after that landslide R’s gave away everything including the kitchen sink. We are not dealing with normal electoral politics. That should be clear to everybody.

It must be kept in the news. Glenn Beck is calling upon the FBI to investigate, he's also waiting to hear a statement from JPMorgan Chase. The DOJ is Eric Holder leftist infested, and who else can we trust. Glenn decided to make the film and info available FIRST to the public, in the event NOTHING is done...in which case We The People had better contact every agency, etc. and blast them with demands that this treasonous act in the planning be investigated NOW. This govt. is lawless, and we have a job to do. We have the tapes and the plans, and we had better make maximum use of this opportunity to flush these cockroaches out into the light of day.

Who else can we contact, individually and as a group?

This rant is standard fare for the left. Bankers have been blamed for every crisis this country has had. Throughout history, bankers have been a favorite whipping boy on both local and national levels. Much of the hatred of Jews has been a result of their prominence in the banking industry.

Lerner is correct in his assertion that we have plenty of money. We can print as much money as we want. However, our money will not have much purchasing power so having money will not be very useful.

He proposes a variation on the general strike idea. He does not need to encourage the behavior. It will happen automatically. We are headed for massive student loan defaults and continued mortgage defaults. The entitlement mentality is so pervasive in large parts of society that encouragement of irresponsible behavior is not necessary.
