    Don’t miss FrontPage’s other Union Gangsters profiles featuring Craig Becker, Richard Trumka, Stephen Lerner, Andy Stern and Daniel De Leon. Few union gangsters have the exquisitely barbaric pedigree of International Brotherhood of Teamsters president James P. Hoffa. And few labor unions can match the Teamsters, the million-plus member union of truckers and blue-collar workers, for its legendary connections to organized crime, corruption, and violence. For decades the word Teamster was essentially a synonym for gangster. Hoffa is the son of James R. Hoffa, the relentlessly corrupt, larger-than-life Teamsters president who worked closely with figures from the crime underworld. In July...

    In the face of mounting charges of anti-Semitism at Occupy sites nationwide, several so-called Jewish groups have been attempting to spin the protest movement as Jew-friendly, as even representing Jewish ideals. Most prominent among those groups is the Jewish Funds for Justice, or JFFJ, which is funded by billionaire George Soros. A slew of other Soros-funded progressive groups are also behind the drive to deny Occupy contains significant anti-Semitic elements. KleinOnline found JFFJ is led by individuals associated with communist and socialist groups; the children of Soviet spies; and a U.S. socialist organization that seeks to infiltrate the Democratic Party....

    Actual title is too long (really need to expand that title space fr lol) ‘Economic terrorist’ Behind Wall Street protests? Radical’s plan: ‘Bring down stock market’ ‘Literally cause a new financial crisis’. Stephen Lerner, a controversial anti-Capitalist SEIU organizer, is one of the forces behind the protests on Wall Street and nationwide, according to quotes obtained by a socialist activist who doubles as a Washington Post columnist. KleinOnline was first to report, Lerner was the brainchild of some of the economic protest templates being used by the Occupy Wall Street campaign. Lerner recently laid out a mass economic protest plan...

  • VIDEO: SEIU's Lerner: We Need to Create a Crisis for the "Super Rich" by "Escalating Activity"

    09/20/2011 10:08:25 AM PDT · by · 12 replies
    SEIU union organizer Stephen Lerner spoke to a crowd of progressives in Minnesota and said they must "create a crisis for the super rich." According to Lerner, this can be accomplished with 3 main steps. The first is to "focus on corporate power." Secondly, they must have a "commitment to escalating activity that creates a crisis for the other side." Finally, 'Non-violent' disobedience and direct action" is needed. In the past, Lerner has stated his aspirations to destroy JP Morgan Chase and cause the collapse of the entire stock market and is reportedly one of the people behind the 'US...

    When I was assigned to write a about tomorrow’s ”Day of Rage,” organized by the likes of ACORN Founder Wade Rathke and SEIU’s Stephen Lerner I resisted it mightily. I heard a grumble in my lower intestine and a silent yell, “Nooooooooo, don’t make me, puhleeeeeze!” I knew the cognitive dissonance and just plain idiocy of a group that regularly claims to be more “tolerant” and “compassionate” than the rest of us and then incites hatred and chaos in order to declare themselves entitled to what other people earn, would put me dangerously close to head-exploding territory. Then, I settled...

    Mayor Bloomberg Warns Of Rioting If Unemployment Remains High September 16, 2011 5:08 PM NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Pedestrians were seemingly content on the streets of upper Manhattan Friday, but Mayor Michael Bloomberg believes there’s an undercurrent of economic distress that could upset the tranquil street scene. “You have a lot of kids graduating college, can’t find jobs, that’s what happened in Cairo. That’s what happened in Madrid. You don’t want those kind of riots here,” Bloomberg said on his Friday morning radio show.

    Matt Drudge’s red and bold headline screams about Mayor Bloomberg’s prediction of civil insurrection by disaffected youth against the government. But is Bloomberg actually encouraging, rather than predicting, disruptive behavior on the eve of the US Days of Rage protest led by former SEIU official Stephen Lerner? Surely the mayor is aware of Lerner’s plan and background. The US Days of Rage is scheduled as a “nonviolent” protest outside the JP Morgan Chase tomorrow, Saturday, September 17. It has been organized by Lerner, a far leftist, to bring down Wall Street and the banks and ultimately collapse the economic system...

    Last night, I interviewed the man at the center of a new swirling controversy. Stephen Lerner, a veteran union organizer, wants collective bargaining for homeowners that owe money to the big banks. And this week, he was caught on tape talking about a "mortgage strike" against the big banks. He suggested that a large number of homeowners stop paying their mortgage until the banks agree to negotiate and modify loans. Glenn Beck pounced on the recording. And so did Congress. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a Republican Congressman from Utah, sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder saying that Lerner's threats...

    Big Labor: Having lost its war on economics, the SEIU has declared war on the economy. Literally. One of its top minds was caught vowing to crash the stock market to redistribute wealth. Is this a union or a subversive group? Six years ago, after breaking from the AFL-CIO, the Service Employees International Union was hailed as a new kind of organization, whose dynamic leader Andy Stern would make labor strong again. His union vowed to increase its "political muscle to pressure entrenched politicians who didn't vote in the interests of their members," wrote Matt Bai in his 2007 book,...

    UNIONS, COMMUNITY GROUPS, LAWMAKERS, STUDENTS TO STRIKE CAPITALISM? Videos here: While it’s tempting to simply think of these people as socialist wing-nuts, dismiss them as bitter marginalized morons, and move on to the next story, the events in Wisconsin provided our leftist pals with an increased sense of self-righteousness and ascendancy. As the aphorism says, the toothpaste is out of the tube. Former SEIU official, Stephen Lerner is organizing a “destabilization plan” to “recover the $17 trillion stolen from the middle class by Wall Street.” His ultimate goal is to “crash the stock market, isolate the banking class...

    Runner-up headline: Caught on Tape: Ex-SEIU Hack Openly Plots to Collapse America’s Free Market System and Overthrow the United States Government. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You can’t be a progressive and honestly take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. The progressive agenda is completely, utterly at odds with America’s highest law. And no one makes this more clear than ex-SEIU official Steve Lerner, who patiently explained a few days ago how the Democrats, the unions and the Soros globalists are helping to destroy the United States from within. The...

    SEIU Launches ‘Where’s The Note’ Campaign To Help Homeowners Fight Foreclosure by on October 12, 2010 A coalition of groups led by the SEIU is launching a campaign to help homeowners capitalize on a growing foreclosure fraud scandal that has forced banks to halt foreclosures across the country. The campaign suggests a question for borrowers to ask when fighting foreclosure in court: “Where’s the note? Did the big banks lose your mortgage?” The mortgage note is proof that a borrower owes a debt. Wall Street banks packaged and repackaged mortgages into exotic financial instruments during the housing bubble, and in...

This war is being waged at our schools, the workplace and in our communities.

    What to Make of SEIU Official's Supposed Socialist Fantasy PlanBy John Hudson Mar 22, 2011 A new tape posted on Glenn Beck's political website, The Blaze, purportedly shows a former Service Employees International Union official sharing plans to "destabilize the country." In the seven-minute video, a voice that sounds like Stephen Lerner, the former director of private equity at the SEIU pictured above, details plans to "bring down the stock market," bankrupt major U.S. banks and create an environment where a weakened financial sector cedes power to union organizers and the middle class in general. The talk purportedly happened at...
