    The Service Employees International Union is teaming with the Department of Health and Human Services to encourage health care coverage through a new marketplace. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Tuesday welcomed SEIU's help at a news conference at Allegheny General Hospital. The SEIU will focus on Pennsylvania and 13 other states where there are concentrations of people without health care coverage to get them enrolled starting Oct. 1. SEIU members will help convince the uninsured to enroll in the health care marketplace, called an exchange.

    Labor Raid: The FBI raids the Chicago home of a local union leader looking for terrorist connections as the union's former chief is investigated for corruption. Why are we not surprised? Thuggery and corruption are not quite synonyms for unionism, but it gets very close when you consider the Service Employees International Union, formerly led by Andy Stern. From being involved in fraudulent voter registration in Texas to beating up Tea Party activists outside town hall meetings in Missouri, SEIU's reputation is well-established. Now we can possibly add a linkage to terrorism. On Friday, the FBI searched eight addresses in...

    Power: Show Me State voters overwhelmingly rejected the federal mandate to buy health insurance. Those who ignored the consent of the governed to pass ObamaCare take heed: The governed no longer consent. It is fitting that Missouri was the first state to hold a public referendum on ObamaCare, sending the notion that government can shred the Constitution to impose its will to a crushing defeat with three-quarters of the voters approving Proposition C. The measure would forbid the federal government from penalizing people who do not buy health insurance. A year ago, on Aug. 6, 2009, Kenneth Gladney, an African-American...

    Racial Politics: The NAACP, in crafting a resolution condemning racism in the Tea Party movement, seems to have forgotten those Black Panthers with clubs intimidating voters and wanting to kill white people. The "angry mobs" that reshaped the 2010 political landscape are angry white racist mobs, at least according to a resolution proposed by the NAACP at its annual convention this week in Kansas City, Mo. The resolution calls on "all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties, and to stand in opposition to its drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights...

    Human Events (developing story) : Friday evening outside of a $10,000-per-plate Republican fundraiser at Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans, a top fundraiser for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal -- along with her boyfriend -- were assaulted as they walked to their vehicle parked two blocks away. The Hayride reports that Allee Bautsch and her boyfriend Joe Brown were followed and attacked expressly because they had Palin pins on. The New Orleans Times-Picayune is reporting Bautsch suffered a broken leg and Brown suffered a concussion, a broken jaw and a broken nose in the attack. Bautch required surgery over the weekend...

    Union Influence: The White House picks its most frequent visitor to sit on its deficit commission. He believes in big government, in big spending, and that the workers of the world should unite. What could go wrong? Computer security firms have been known to hire the best former hackers because they know best how to stop others like them. But the appointment of Andy Stern, president of the Service Employee International Union (SEIU), to a bipartisan commission to come up with ways to deal with the rapidly rising federal budget deficit is like having a serial arsonist organize Fire Prevention...

    The progressives are not just trying to split the tea party movement from the Republican Party, they’re also trying to legitimize and destroy the tea party movement itself. This website recently popped up on the internet: The Tea Party Is Over- Our Mission: To prevent the Tea Party’s dangerous ideas from gaining legislative traction.Lee Doren did his research and found out who is behind this anti-freedom website: I just came across a new website titled: http://www.TheTeaPartyIsOver.org It is paid for by the American Public Policy Committee. Well, according to opensecrets.org, the two donors for American Public Policy Committee this year...

    Stern Lashes Out At Senate Dems, Calls Some Legislative 'Terrorists' 01-26-10 Two of the most powerful union officials in the country lashed out at Senate Democrats on Tuesday, jokingly calling some of them legislative "terrorists" and slamming leadership for "squandering" a supermajority in the Senate. Pointing to the failure of Congress to pass health care reform and effectively stimulate job creation, SEIU president Andy Stern insisted that "unless something dramatic happens here" the country's labor activists will not be eager to help the Democratic Party in the 2010 elections. Speaking at a forum on the state of the American worker...

    They’ve dumped nearly a $1 million of rank-and-file dues into Martha Antoinette Coakley’s coffers. They “pulled out all the stops” before the primary and they’ll be throwing all their ground troops into the Bay State over the weekend. We know how the SEIU thugs operate. I told you in Culture of Corruption about Andy Stern’s organizational motto: “[W]e prefer to use the power of persuasion, but if that doesn’t work we use the persuasion of power.” They’ll go after Boy Scouts. And baby-sitters. And home health-care providers. They raided their treasury to pour $60-$80 million into Obama and the Democrats’...

    Politics: With the Massachusetts Senate race in a dead heat, the Service Employees International Union makes a massive ad buy for a Democrat raising money from lobbyists. Sorry, Sen. Kerry, but the tea party's coming. Having received a tsunami warning, the purple shirts of the SEIU have sprung into action with a major ad buy trying to pull the Senate candidacy of Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley from the jaws of defeat. The buy size of $685,000, extracted from the union dues of not-always-willing workers, is one of the biggest of the election. The ads note that Republican Scott Brown...

    (The PPP quote/headline is too long) Headline: Andy Stern: “Health Care Bill is not about What the President Wants or Ben Nelson Wants, but What SEIU Members Need” During an interview with CNN on December 22nd. Andy Stern, President of SEIU, said that the Health Care Bill is no longer about what the President wants, or Ben Nelson Wants, But what SEIU Members Need. Really? I thought the Health Care Bill was to “Help” make Health Care affordable for All people, not just SEIU members. Then Again, it really won’t make it affordable for anyone, including SEIU Members. Also in...

    Union Violence: An African-American is beaten up at a political rally by thugs shouting racial epithets, and after three months his assailants are charged with the moral equivalent of jaywalking. Why wasn't it a hate crime? The beating of Kenneth Gladney by people wearing the purple shirts of the Service Employees International Union outside a Missouri health care town hall meeting three months ago met all the classic definitions of a hate crime. Time was, the beating of a black man outside a protest rally, and the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators, would be headline news. Gladney was working...

    That would be the purple-shirted members of the SEIU--the Service Employees International Union—who (literally) swung into action outside a town hall meeting in Missouri and became infamous on YouTube and national media. “Town Hall Protestor Roughed Up by SEIU Members” read one headline. The legal system will sort out what happened to David Gladney, the victim of the attack. But public opinion will sort out whether SEIU is sending thugs to town halls. The union “Purps” also turned out in force at President Obama's town hall in New Hampshire. SEIU brought its people in by chartered buses after getting special...
