  • White House Seeking to Organize Americans on Obama’s Behalf

    11/12/2012 11:32:27 AM PST · by Nachum · 58 replies
    White House dossier ^ | 11/12/12 | Keith Koffler
    The White House is pulling a tactic out of its campaign playbook – and President Obama’s own community organizing past – using the organs of government to enlist average Americans to help Obama advocate for his priorities. In an email sent to people who signed up to receive official updates from the White House, recipients are told to forward the message to their friends, asking them to help promote what is in effect White House propaganda. The White House email list, which government officials began compiling earlier in Obama’s term, is separate from the famed Obama campaign email list, but...

  • Conservatives organize to defeat Romney (push back against 'inevitable nominee' narrative)

    Conservatives organize to defeat RomneyBy Alicia M. Cohn - 11/10/11 05:15 AM ET A coalition of conservatives is working to organize the disparate groups opposing Mitt Romney as the Republican presidential nominee. While much has been made of Romney’s lack of support amongst conservative Republicans, the sense of malaise has mostly manifested as a lack of enthusiasm rather than outright opposition. That may all be about to change. The new coalition is seeking to push back against the narrative that Romney is the “inevitable nominee," according to spokesman and activist Ali Akbar. The group's website NotMittRomney.com launched this week. Akbar...

    <p>JUNEAU, Alaska — A website has gone up that is dedicated to rallying voters behind candidates Sarah Palin has endorsed.</p> <p>The site, http://www.organize4palin.com, includes a disclaimer saying it's not authorized or affiliated with Palin or with her PAC and is not a Palin fan site. But it bills itself as the site many Palin supporters have been waiting for — a place where they can rally behind Palin's leadership and support her favored candidates.</p>
  • Recommended Reading: Saul Alinsky, The American Organizer

    08/13/2010 11:54:45 AM PDT · by Todd Kinsey · 11 replies
    A Resource for Every Organizer & Anyone Contemplating Action in Their Community NEA recommends the following Saul Alinsky books to those members of our Association who are involved in grassroots organizing, especially Association Representatives (ARs) — also known as building reps or shop stewards — and leaders at local affiliates. Saul Alinsky is widely recognized as the father of, and pre-imminent expert in, grassroots organizing, which is why we recommend that ARs and local leaders become familiar with his theories & materials. Alinsky’s writings have been called the “mother’s milk of the left,” however in an ironic homage, the conservative...

    Anyone who has ever tried to sue a school, change a PTA, join a school board, or in any way to manipulate what a public school was doing, please share your experiences and suggestions. To start the discussion, here are a few options: YAHOO GROUPS: anybody can form a group on Yahoo. I know of a group in Jersey City where parents share notes about teachers, courses, and candidates. This is an easy way to mobilize 100 or 200 people so they’re all on the same page when they deal with the school. PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATION: Martin Gross, in his book...

    Big Government ^ | 5/5/10 | Andrew Marcus
    From the cheap seats, it sure does look like the President of the United States is using the powers of the Executive to coordinate with Andy Stern to organize a series of protests entitled “Showdown In America.” Earlier, we posted about the links between Andy Stern’s SEIU and a group called National People’s Action (NPA). NPA, together with SEIU and the AFL-CIO, is organizing a series of angry marches against Wall Street and capitalism. NPA is a very dangerous and radical group that isn’t shy about its radical philosophy. From their song book: Who’s on your hit list NPA? Who’s...

    Conservative flash mobs (how do we get them going?). http://www.asuwebdevil.com/node/5751 Flash mobs are currently used in the United States as a sort of public art. The participants are usually students. They plan a time, location, and activity. All are notified of where, when, and what, and then show up and perform. Once done, all participants leave (quietly). Flash mobs have been used in some countries where political organization is banned. Perhaps all will show up in a public place and eat an ice-cream, while walking around in the area. This doesn't sound like much, but when you have 300 people...
  • Networking Sites Limit Optimized Organizing

    This vanity topic is nothing more than an encouragement for chief organizers of the coming Tea Party Protest to reconsider their use of networking sites like Facebook and Myspace for their city wide organizing efforts. As I understand they are a great tool for networking, if you are a chief organizer for your city, only using Facebook to bring people together, you will find that your efforts will be limited. Many people who want to correspond with others joining the protest will not be inclined to be required to sign up for sites like Facebook to interact. The chief organizer...

    Page 103, Chapter "Peter Keating". Ellsworth Toohey is speaking to a crowd of striking workers while Peter Keating and Toohey's niece, Catherine, are listening to the loudspeaker outside the hall: It was not a voice, it was a miracle. It unrolled as a velvet banner. It spoke English words, but the resonant clarity of each syllable made it sound like a new language spoken for the first time. It was the voice of a giant. Keating stood, his mouth open. He did not hear what the voice was saying. He heard the beauty of the sounds without meaning. He felt...
  • 'RNC Welcoming Committee' promises no warm welcome for GOP convention

    The RNC Welcoming Committee doesn't really want to welcome the Republican National Convention to the Twin Cities. And they're organizing this weekend - a year before the Republican heavyweights arrive - to make their un-welcome heard. A few hundred "anarchists and anti-authoritarians" will gather for a pre-convention convention this Saturday and Sunday, to give shape and strategy to their 2008 RNC convention plans, according to a woman who identified herself as Bea Bridges. Bridges read a statement at a news conference this morning about this weekend's gathering but did not take any questions from invited reporters. In her statement, she...

    I was listening to the Sean Hannity show today and he said that Hillary Clinton, in an effort to show us her "softer" side, said she likes to "organize her closet". This raises some interesting questions.Question 1: Would this be the same closet where she found those Whitewater billing records? And if so, how good could she possibly be at this "organizing" thing?Question 2: Don't you have to have a special permit or something to handle so many skeletons?Question 3: How long before Bill ends up in there?

    America Supports You ^ | Samantha L. Quigley
    WASHINGTON, April 16, 2006 – A good book read in August led two McLean, Va., sisters to start a program designed to thank the nation's servicemembers. "We were inspired by Michael Stadther's book 'A Treasure Trove' last summer, along with the movie 'National Treasure,'" Rachel and Kelsi Okun told American Forces Press Service via e-mail. The book contained clues to real tokens hidden around the United States. Once found, those tokens could be turned in for a real jewel. Rachel 10, and Kelsi, 8, decided they could do something similar, albeit with a different focus. From that decision has sprung...

    Here is a short piece I wrote last night and revised a bit today. I had posted it on a Swedish newsgroup last night, and a Swedish church magazine wrote today to ask if they might reprint it (which is why I polished it a bit). It is based mainly on reports in the Danish press, some of which have been picked up and confirmed by, at least, FoxNews. I imagine the rest of the formerly mainstream media will ignore this.

    <p>Most Americans would universally agree with Jefferson's definition of a patriot. In addition, most actually think of themselves as patriotic, although, frequently, the form of action patriotism takes is quite different from one U.S. citizen to another.</p> <p>With support for the occupation in Iraq at an all-time low, many Democrats are asking, "Why isn't John Kerry 20 points ahead of Bush in the polls, instead of in a dead heat?" The two-party system may not meaningfully express the wide range of political aspirations of the people. Disenchantment is widespread. There are as many conservatives disappointed by and angry about President Bush's policies on deficits, outsourcing of jobs and the huge expansion of the federal government as there are progressives annoyed by Kerry's support of the war in Iraq and his ambivalence about same-sex marriage.</p>

    First of all, please accept my apology for posting this so late. On October 1, my wife ("FRBI") and I closed on our house in Boca Raton and moved to Las Vegas, NV. The new owners wanted a short closing (26 days!) and therefore, we had to do everything in a very short period of time. We did a quick trip to Las Vegas for house hunting & job hunting, returned home to Boca, found a mover, fixed the roof (hey, it's Florida - all roofs leak!), packed up everything and headed west. Immediately after arriving in "Sin City", we...
  • Baggage screeners push to unionize

    MSNBC.com ^ | 10/27/03 | Brock N. Meeks
    Union leaders are pushing the Bush administration to allow some 50,000 federal airport baggage and passenger screeners the right to union representation, saying they’ll take their case to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary. The push for collective-bargaining rights comes as the Transportation Security Administration has cut some 6,000 screener jobs at airports nationwide in an effort to get its budget under control, and near the one-year anniversary of the deadline to have a federal screener workforce in place. Ironically, the federal jobs themselves, created by congressional mandate in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, could be in jeopardy....

I wonder....who would be willing to meet face to...
