Interesting.

Not shocking though. As most cops are union, they will never bust their own fellow unionists. That's why crimes committed by union goons never get prosecuted.

I remember either seeing it written, or in some movie somewhere, that one of the reasons the mafia came into existence was because there was a need for "police" for people who could not go to the police for help with crime. I hate saying this, but many victims of union thuggery are falling more and more into that category of people.

Something’s wrong here... Because banks are federally insured, the FBI are first responders to any issue at a bank. A lifetime ago, I managed a bank branch and was very happy that the Feds were there when we were robbed, etc.

If the local PD did not show up, the branch should have activated their security system, which should have brought the FBI. Trust me, they don’t F... around with this stuff.

Intresting. I have a CCW in Colorado and can carry in banks. I need to change to high cap and many extra magazines as all accounts are at Chase. If threatened by a mob it will be head shots to conserve ammo.

A bank calls in a 911 and the local police never show. Does this area have state police?

It can’t be the planned Lerner Action because they allegedly identified themselves with SEIU, whereas a key criteria of the Lerner Action was that it was not supposed to be associated with the unions. Something is wrong with this picture.

As soon as the story broke I went to the JP Morgan Chase web site and grabbed every e-mail address from the President, VP, and all through each headquarters.

I copied the link the the Blaze web site along with the audio link and explained what these union thugs were attempting to do. I also asked that if I had missed any e-mail addresses on this mass mailing if they could forward this to as many as they could in their company.

I’ve received 2 replies thanking me for sending them to this site and that they were well aware of what was going on.

It was funny that I received 4 auto replies back immediately stating out of office. I had to laugh!

At least they are aware of what is happening and hopefully are taking steps to thwart them.

Eventually, these SEIU types are going to start taking some bullets, especially here in Texas. There are limits to what we will put up with...me, in particular.

But as long as they keep their stunts up North, they’re ok by me (relatively speaking).

Your point is well taken. I’m just reporting what I was told a few hours ago. It’s also two months too early to be part of the true Lerner plan, so maybe it was some other test-run or something. The senior woman described the people as more the sort of riffraff I’ve seen with ACORN than with SEIU, so maybe it was some blend of them or something. Don’t know.

Lerner over estimated the union members’ I.Q. All they heard him say was “disrupt J.P. Morgan/Chase”. They missed the part about not tieing it to the unions.

The security guard should have fired through the door and took a few of them out. I guarantee the cops would have showed up!

I think he was referring to the mortgage and student loan “strikes” not being associated with SEIU. The protests of JPM/Chase would be pretty hard to disassociate with the unions since very few other groups do that sort of thing.

I heard that the security guard seemed ambivalent about the whole thing, and it was later realized he was also “from the same union”. At least he locked the door and stood there, doing the right thing.

A few years ago they picketed Group Health across from my apartment.

They were having their children march and chant with them.

Frankly, they were much less pleasant than the Pride Parade...and that’s saying a lot.

I don’t think so. I’ve been over the relevant portions of the tape and transcript and my impression is that associating any of this with the unions was to be avoided as being a PR disaster for the unions. That’s a broad-based principle that cannot reasonably be confined to only the later stages of the Lerner Action to which you refer.

The idea is that the localized bank protests stir up a high level of visibility, then the appropriate spokespersons will leverage all that free media access into a broader call for mortgage and other loan strikes. But Lerner generalizes about the covertness of union involvement, and doesn’t distinguish the early phase from the final phase, and strategically, from his perspective, that would be the only way to go. I’m still smelling something funny here.

FBI jurisdiction is limited; if you are a national bank, it will investigate a robbery. However, if some vagabond decides to camp in your doorway and piss on your front window, that is a state offense, and the FBI will have nothing to do with it. The mob at the door is likewise a state offense, at least until they loot the cash window.

Why would a guard at a bank belong to a government employee union? I do not believe the police were called and they never showed up. That in it self is a crime. Why would a policeman risk jail time for a cheep protest? I have worked on bank security system and know a little about this.

He doesn’t have the union membership in its entirety. The members may enjoy their benefits, but I’m confident most are not of the commie kind. It is the commie’s goal to splinter off the majority from traditional Americanism. Those scumbags are dreamin’ — ain’t gonna’ happen.

SEIU needs to be put in its place and soon. They are completely out of control and braking laws. They need to be sued, arrested, etc.

Now everyone does nknow that SEIU and ACORN are one in the same? Started by the same person Wade Rathke, share the same offices, and Acorn now acts on its agenda through SEIU directly.

That is why you have all those “low income” hoodlum types at all these Union rallies..they are Acorn people.

“Why would a guard at a bank belong to a government employee union? “

Not sure, not sure. Just telling it like I think I heard it. What else I recall is that theis branch does not usually have a guard at the bank, and that two regualr customers who were there earlier realized something was up and inquired why there was one there that day. Apparently, these two men were there as the time was approaching and were asked to leave so the bank would be free of customers.

I’m not sure SEIU only has public employees as members. Is that accurate? It may also be, if I’m not mistaken, that it was an LEO who has a side job in security. Don’t know. Just trying to convey the story as best I can. It didn’t make much sense to me either except in light of the Lerner tape, and in light of the fact that the bits and pieces I heard from the different sources there certainly seemed to be telling the same story.

SEIU is also in the private industry. If my memories serves me correctly, I believe they started in the hotel, housekeeping, office cleaning type of industries. And like any cancer left untreated, they have spread. In the state of MI, they are also in the healthcare/hospital industry representing “professionals” such as RNs

“Police had been called right away, but never showed.”

You mention that only in passing, but I find that VERY troubling and think it needs follow-up or looking into for the reason, or worse - a possible tie-in or cooperation with SEIU?

“As most cops are union, they will never bust their own fellow unionists. That’s why crimes committed by union goons never get prosecuted.”

Well, damn. So cops wouldn’t even answer a call about possible harm (what about if violence is in progress) to a bank or its employees???

THAT should be prosecuted as a felony and any law enforcement who ignore such a call for should be prosecuted for felony as well.

Thoughts, anyone?

If I recall correctly, when she said that with a puzzled tone, I just pointed out that they were probably in the same or similar union. I mentioned the extortion letter the three LEO and the firefighter unions had sent (with the teachers’ union) to those businesses in Wisconsin. Her face just dropped in appalled understanding.

Thanks for the info. Now, my next question is - since the head of DOJ and his boss in the White House are marxist, radical protectors (even backers) of union thugs, do you think the FBI can still be counted on to respond and do the right thing as in your past experience?

“Eventually, these SEIU types are going to start taking some bullets, especially here in Texas.”

But that’s exactly what these people want! I think a ton more good will come of it by capturing as many on camera or video as possible (like the exposure of ACORN, etc.) and going directly to guys like Glenn Beck and Andrew Breitbart who have BIG national megaphones. That’s what will throw a real wrench in their (SEIU, Obama et al’s) plot. Otherwise, we’ll only fall into their trap and it will backfire on us.

In fact, what about contacting Beck (or his staff) with this story? He’ll shine some big light on it, and possibly even head off something worse in the future by doing so. This is exactly the sort of thing he’ll want to know. That’s why he’s so often asked all of us to help be his eyes and ears throughout the country.
