    Dear Real Zionist News Family -

    Talk about intruding on States’ rights.

    Obama will take any measure possible to IMPLANT his Communist agenda and DIVIDE the country from within.

    It’s right out of Saul Alinksy’s play book, Obama’s Jew-commie mentor.

    Wherever there is dissension YOU CAN COUNT ON IT - Jews will be involved.

    The whole youth busing — Obama’s “Organization for America” — the leftist Group, “One Wisconsin Now,” has all the earmarks of a George Soros operation.

    And Obama is NOTHING BUT A PUPPET of the Jews who put him in office and keep him there with their threat hanging over his Kenyan ears: “One FALSE MOVE boy and we RUIN YOU!”
    ——
    On another note.

    The Billboard Campaign is now officially off. Why? Hardly any donations.

    I have been on the phone today trying to get donations JUST TO KEEP “our site” running.

    The expense is enormous.

    But, with only a few donations dribbling in per week in contrast to 210,000 HITS per week, I have to USE THE PHONE to try to DRUM UP SOME SUPPORT.

    Please Consider HELPING me to KEEP our site ONLINE!

    NEW VIDEO for Br. Nathanael:

    Br. Nathanael: America Caught in the Jewish Matrix.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybmmBoQ7of8

    The criminal Jewish Matrix has destroyed America, chopping it deep into the roots with every form of treason, crime, and decadence possible.

    Yet, most Americans prefer to be stuck into the filthy and subhuman slavery lashed upon them by criminal Jewry, because of their addictions and debts to the “American Dream” aka Talmudic Nightmare.

    The ONLY way to be saved from Satan’s bondage is through the Power and return of Jesus Christ, and the man leading the way to the Second Coming of Christ Jesus is Br. Nathanael.

    The Americans who will stand up like men and will follow Christ Jesus through Br. Nathanael will win their freedom and their country back from the criminal Jewish vipers, parasites, leeches, hyenas, and scorpions.

    There are no more neutral sidlines, it’s Good vs evil. Be on Br. Nat’s side or be taken for another criminal Jewish ride.

    As is showcased in this video, America making a deal with the criminal Jewish network is making a deal with one of the most powerful and nastiest types of devils, who moves in with his bags and never intends to leave.

    That is, unless America stands up and tells the criminal Jewish network to get lost in the Name and Awesome Power of Christ Jesus.

    Obama’s Paid Protesters Invade Wisconsin
    By Brother Nathanael Kapner

    The Wisconsin Protest is looking more like an Obama TV extravaganza than a grassroots movement.

    Hundreds of youth from Obama’s “Organizing For America”— successor group to his campaign apparatus – have been bused in from all over the country to join the locals in Madison, Wisconsin for their protest.

    Obama’s “Organizing for America” has all the signs of being a George Soros operation.

    Indeed, George Soros is known as Obama’s “money man” and a regular White House visitor.

    It appears that Soros’ probable agent and probable Jewish co-religionist, Scot Ross, Director of the leftist group, “One Wisconsin Now,” is part of the Obama/Soros plan to communize America.

    Wisconsin’s Republican Governor, Scott Walker, has majority support in the State Legislature for his Bill that requires public workers to pitch in for their pensions. And this is what the protest is mostly all about.

    But, when on the eve of a quorum to be held on the Bill all the Democrat senators fled the state, Ross defended their flight, “The senators have rightly taken matters into their own hands.”

    Speaking of which, it appears that Obama’s Jewish ad-man, David Axelrod, creator of the “Change You Can Believe In” hoax, has put into the hands of Obama’s paid protesters similar signs and slogans, such as:

    “Kill The Bill! Kill The Bill!” – and, “Scotty Scotty Flush Your Bill Down The Potty!” – and, making the Governor look like some kind of racist: “Walker’s Plantation - Open For Business!”

    But after the TV crews pack up, out comes the pizza and as the Washington Post reported, the protest ends up looking more “like a rock concert.”

    And that’s all Obama really is – a political rock star – apparently using Soros’ billions of dollars to pay off a bunch of kids who could care less about public workers and their pension plans.

    Why, they’re only pawns in the game of George Soros and his Zionist agenda.

    And Obama? One false move and Soros and tribe will put up his Kenyan Birth Certificate up on 60 Minutes. “Tick, tick, tick.” America, you’re now at the 11th hour!

    Greetings in the Lord Jesus, Brother Nathanael,

    Well done, and you had me at the get go with your tongue in cheek humor. Serious politics and the public’s business started out hilarious with your first montage of the Georgie and Barry Soetero Sock Puppet Show.

    Things are getting pretty bad, but asininity abounds. It’s either laugh or pluck one’s eyeballs out in despair.

    Nice change of pace focusing on the tactics of the “National Organized Communizing Wisconsin Pizzafest For Youth With Too Much Time On Their Hands.”

    This will probably go down as a failure of one of Soros’ Open Society rebellions — as a “color revolution,” the words “Pizza and Cola Revolution” just don’t have the right ring to it.

    I suppose someone will come up with a t-shirt that reads: “I went to Madison, WI and all I got was a pizza, not even a dumb t-shirt.”

    “Media Trackers confronts a doctor in Madison who is assisting teachers by signing fraudulent doctor’s excuses. There were at least four different doctors in white coats signing sick forms.”
    http://mediatrackers.org/2011/02/doctors-help-teachers-to-lie-about-being-sick/

    Almost unbelievable tantrums from the Jew-Communist “Progressive” Left over Gov. Walker’s Budget Repair Plan, and it is rhetoric that could only be written by Jews: “Scott Walker = Adolf Hitler,” “Midwest Mussolini,” “Hosni Walker,” “Mubarak of the Midwest,” etc.

    Oh yes, we are reminded on the video that Hitler also shut down the out of control Red labor unions in Weimar Germany in 1933.

    Someone slipped, though, they didn’t get a plug in for the Holocaust(TM).

    To put the lie to bed that “Violent political rhetoric…comes almost exclusively from the Right (Eugene Robinson), see Real Clear Politics video on Democrat protestors foul mouths:
    http://tinyurl.com/protestors-need-mouths-soaped

    Michele Malkin has a good on-going commentary on the:

    ‘Badger State Battle: Unions vs. Tea Party in Wisconsin; Runaway Dems could be AWOL “for weeks;” recall campaigns launched; nine anti-Walker protesters arrested; fake doctors’ notes for fake sick teachers.’ (VIDEO)

    And: ‘Get ready: SEIU’s Purple Army nationwide protest schedule; teachers’ unions pressure members to show “solidarity”…’

    http://michellemalkin.com/2011/02/19/badger-state-battle-unions-vs-tea-party-in-wisconsin-runaway-dems-could-be-awol-for-weeks/

    Interesting time we live in. The pressure is only going to increase.

  7. Br. Michael February 20, 2011 @ 12:55 am

    In its Jan. 31 memo to legislators on the condition of the state’s budget, the Fiscal Bureau determined that the state will end the year with a balance of $121.4 million.

    To the extent that there is an imbalance — Walker claims there is a $137 million deficit — it is not because of a drop in revenues or increases in the cost of state employee contracts, benefits or pensions.

    It is because Walker and his allies pushed through $140 million in new spending for special-interest groups in January.

    Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! ——- The GOP Governor LIED.

    Imagine that, Union Busting for purely political driven agenda, over a “manufactured deficit” by the Governor himself!

    Once again republicans give tax cuts to the rich and ask low income and middle income people to pay for it.

    Walker is interested in gaming the system to benefit his political allies and campaign contributors.

    To achieve that end, he has proposed a $137 million budget “repair” bill that he intends to use as a vehicle to undermine the long-established collective bargaining rights of public employee unions, which have for 80 years been the strongest advocates for programs that serve the great mass of Wisconsinites, as opposed to wealthy elites and corporate special interests.

    As Racine’s Democratic state Rep. Cory Mason says, the governor’s bill is designed not with the purpose of getting the state’s finances in order but as “an assault on Wisconsin’s working families and political payback against unions who didn’t support Gov. Walker.”

    Pay for schemes that redirect state tax dollars to wealthy individuals and corporate interests that have been sources of campaign funding for Walker’s fellow Republicans and special-interest campaigns on their behalf.

    As Madison’s Democratic state Rep. Brett Hulsey notes, the governor and legislators aligned with him have over the past month given away special-interest favors to every lobby group that came asking, creating zero jobs in the process “but increasing the deficit by more than $140 million.”

    So, to tell the truth, Br. Nathaniel, Obama was caught flatfooted by the protests of the people of Wisconsin, and it has absolutely nothing to do with Soros.

    This is the result of a corrupt Governor threatening to use the National Guard to bust unions of teachers, prison guards, and other public servants…to cover his favors for the rich! SURPRISE!!!

    @ Br. Michael

    A rather long-winded attempt my fruend on your part to discredit my thesis.

    It fails to convince though, sorry ’bout that.

    Plus, it looks like a Copy & Paste from some union worker’s blog.

    BOTTOM LINE: The busing in of young kids who thrive on pizza is CLEARLY a Soros/Axelrod operation.

    Slogans and building up a Bolshevik Public Sector is the only education that puppet Barky ever had. And he learned it from the Jew Saul Alinsky, the commie Jew.

    AND he gets it funded by George Soros and propagandized by the Jew thug Axelrod.

    Next time dear ‘Br. Michael,’ spare us your frothings of the mouth and just get down to a lame attempt to undermine my thesis.

    That way we can quickly cut to the chase, bypass your comments, and have no need for rebuttals. +BN

    Stalin’s Jews

    We mustn’t forget that some of greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish

    And us, the Jews? An Israeli student finishes high school without ever hearing the name “Genrikh Yagoda,” the greatest Jewish murderer of the 20th Century, the GPU’s deputy commander and the founder and commander of the NKVD.

    Yagoda diligently implemented Stalin’s collectivization orders and is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people. His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system.

  10. kmarie February 20, 2011 @ 4:52 am

    The political/financial control struggles seem to be intensifying at the state and local levels.

    In my State of Georgia, for example, the Jewish community includes Sam Olens. Olens was a “consensus builder” as Cobb County’s “first Jewish” commissioner. Olens is now the “first Jewish” Georgia State Attorney General. Zionist?

    When the Marietta Daily Journal goes out of its way to ridicule local political individuals - Georgia State legislator Bobby Franklin, for example, or Cobb County School Board members - I tend to wonder, “Does this newspaper have some hidden agenda?” Zionist?

    Since we do not have any local Brother Nathanael to name local names and expose local strategies, it is difficult to read between the lines.

    Happily, several states, including Oregon, have introduced state bills to start their own state-owned banks - North Dakota has uniquely and successfully run a state-owned bank for almost a century.

    Ellen Brown comments:

    “By consolidating their assets into their own state-owned banks, state and local governments can leverage their own funds to finance their own operations, and they can do this essentially interest-free, since they will own the bank and will get their interest back.”

    Amerika is indeed now at the 11th hour….

    With the Obama fraud, backed by NWO slight of hand, becoming more and more obvious.

    Change? What change has anyone enjoyed?

    A sham, a Soros contrivance for mass consumption only, and many fell for the “saviour president,” who promised so much and delivered so little.

    Obamaman will soon have to hand in his red cape and blue tights, when the lack of a alid US birth certificate becomes his unavoidable nemesis — his green kryptonite moment of exposure –a comic strip fantasy.

  12. Michael Kelley February 20, 2011 @ 5:27 am

    Dear Brother Nathanael

    In reference to Br. Michael’s post and your great article, I want to get right down to the bottom of the issues here:

    There is scarcity wherever there is usury, because of the tireless work of compounding interest, neither sleeping nor pausing in its devouring.

    The nauseating Masonic two-party system and its retarded partisans are all pathetic traitors in effect, if not in will, because all fundamentally support, vote for, and carry out plans to borrow their constituencies into ever increasing debt bondage.

    Like blind animals, they fight tooth and nail over scraps from the table of the usurers, while resigning the children of the future to abject poverty. What pathetic whores.

    Let’s validate Br. Michael’s deconstruction of the Republican agenda in Wisconsin. It still falls short of hitting the mark by revealing only half the problem.

    Here’s the other half. Granting the truth to the notion that union-busting is always the first step to lowering all standards of living for the laboring class, let us steal the rest of their thunder.

    If the constituency of a state has to borrow at interest to pay the ‘living wages’ of the employees of the state, the positive effect of those wages on the economy of the state will be offset by the net loss of purchasing power within the state as interest payments take more money out of circulation. The net result, too little currency to pay everyone a ‘living wage’.

    So the state employees’ unions aren’t supporting a living wage, after all, since they fail to oppose borrowing to pay all their nice benefits. Or, stated alternatively, if the international usury racket gets a dollar for each dollar a union employee gets paid, then the union is in collusion with the bankers against the non-union workers who will ultimately pay both principal and interest for every state expense.

    Of course, the bankers will spend some of that money back into the local economy buying pizza for drooling idiots, but it just ends up all over the front of their pajamas, anyway.

  14. Donger February 20, 2011 @ 9:02 am

    Brother Nathanael,

    Yes we are at the 11th hour. But we have been told in advance.

    1Tim 4:1 “But the Spirit says that in the later times some will fall away from the faith”. 2Tim 3:1 “But realize this that in the last days difficult times will come”.

    The anti-Christ or the man of sin, who will be revealed, is a fake Christ. In order to have a ‘fake Christ’ you need a fake John the baptist to make the ruse look even more real.

    Is Obama the fake John the baptist?

    Dear kmarie,

    Hooray for you. And hooray for Ellen Brown. We need state banks. They have now been introduced in seven legislatures.

    And they won’t be backed by gold. Remember FDR’s confiscation of gold back in the 30’s? And how about the theft of at least 20 billion in gold bulion from Russia when the Jews took over.

    Now the Russians are buying gold. I wonder how much of the gold they are buying was initially stolen from them when the Jews took over?

    The Jews always go after something valuable-like gold. I think that they initially gave gold worth thousands of years ago and they have been doing so ever since.

    Best to use fiat money. They won’t have any interest in paper.

    Lincoln put a damper on their activities when, in 1862 and 1863, he refused to pay the exorbitant rates of interest demanded by the Rothschilds and issued constitutionally-authorized, interest free United States notes.

    For this and other acts of patriotism Lincoln was shot down in cold-blood by John Wilkes Booth on April 14, 1865, just five days after Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia.”_Extracted from URL

    Communism is the equal distribution of wealth created by the workers for the workers that is communism, which is Marx the founder of communism.

    Now I often agree with most of what our Brother Nathanael says and I just love the guy but he makes the same mistake like Devy Kidd does on her website along with other popular opponents of the Obama regime or administration who like to use the term communist in its wrong context to slur a political opponent, or kind of like a swear word.

    Obama is not and never will be a communist because he puts the wealth of the workers into the hands of the Rothschild banking elite and Rothschild’s pals in the Military Industrial Complex and Multinational companies.

    Obama has never passed any act and never will, that will re-distribute the wealth created by the workers for the workers and he would see hell freeze over first before he even thinks of it.

    On the basis of equal distribution advocated by Marx you will be hard pressed to find any country that claims to be communist and actually distributes its wealth created by the workers for the workers.

    And I tell you that when people advocate that Obama is a communist you actually physically make communist sick, in fact you make socialist sick because Obama is not even a socialist.

    His sending more troops to kill women and children in Afghanistan should of proven this point.

    Please think again before insulting communist when you call this Kenyan Born British National and King on the American throne Obama a communist, it hurts when we laugh.

    Communism was a Zionist Jew scam right from the beginning.

    It is why revolutions like the Bolshevik Revolution, in Russia, was financed by New York Zionist bankers.

    Why would billionaires finance as system that says death to capitalism? What has made them billionaires?

    You take puppets like Lenin, Stalin, or Mao and feed them this “rise up comrade” and working class and take over in a Red Revolution.

    Ohh, the money was distributed all right. The Romanov’s gold, gems, wealth, along with other aristocratic Russians was stolen, and then confiscated by the Talmudic Jew bankers who financed it.

    In reality, they were actually “The State.”

    In the 30s, Hitler even laughs about this. He says “Where did all the gold and wealth end up in Russia? The poor working class Bolsheviks? No, the Zionist bankers in Europe.”

    Now, you know the real reason Stalin purged the Zionist Bolshevik Jews from leading positions in the Soviet Union was that he caught on to their ruse. Mao did it too, they call Mao’s purging: “the purging of the intelligentsia,” western code words for throwing out disloyal greedy Jews.

    Peter, look at the chart below, see they funded both Fascism and Communism.

    Everything the Zionist Jew does is some type of scam with an ulterior motive, usually for money or advancing their agenda. Most times both!

    Greetings in the Lord Jesus, Michael K,

    ‘Br. Michael’ in trying to refute Br. Nathanael’s thesis is taking his fact-bending rhetoric from the Soros backed, Obama sponsored One Wisconsin Party, has called “revenue” as “surplus,” and there is a definite difference as any accountant can point out.

    Any accountant knows that the Wisconsin Constitution requires a balanced budget, but Wisconsin’s budget isn’t balanced and hasn’t been for some time under Democrat rule, with Walker coming into an accumulated deficit of $6 BILLION, he’s proposed a repair budget that still has a $3 BILLION deficit, and that union concessions would prevent massive layoffs.

    Wisconsin is “Patient Zero” for the “Progressive” Democrats and their love affair with labor unions, because that is originally where the “Progressive” virus first broke out decades ago.

    Here is a very grumpy Forbes article by Lee Shepperd which touches on what is really going on in terms of the interplay of various dynamics of the tax issues involved.

    Someone writing for Forbes can generally be counted on to get their money facts straight.

    In any case, rather than raising taxes of everyone, Gov. Walker is attempting to apply a medicinal dose of ’supply-side economics” at a local and state level by encouraging SMALL and MEDIUM businesses to stay or move in, not mega-corporation conglomerates and their interlocking directorates.

    “Wisconsin’s new Republican governor, Scott Walker, is cutting small business taxes while trying to reduce essential spending and threatening to prevent public employees from striking.

    “The state has a budgetary shortfall of $3 billion over two years (Wisconsin budgets biennially). But Walker campaigned on creating a business-friendly climate, and called a special legislative session to enact his plans.”

    “Walker just won legislative approval for the centerpiece of his tax cut plan, a supermajority requirement for sales or income tax rate increases.

    “The new law does not prevent property tax rate increases or other tax adjustments like loophole closers. This is a dangerous restriction on legislative action in the long run, if for no other reason than it would be difficult to repeal.”
    http://blogs.forbes.com/leesheppard/2011/02/15/wisconsins-cheesy-tax-cuts/

    In other words, “small business friendly” not “big business friendly” and WI has $3 billion in budgetary deficits to overcome stepping through the next two years.

    The approximate $150 MILLION in 2009 out of out-of-state tax recovery penciled as ‘revenue’ on the book entries, to be redistributed as “tax credit” incentives for SMALL BUSINESSES that ‘Br. Michael’ is niggling about, and the Dems for some reason call it “spending,” is peanuts compared to a $3 BILLION biennial deficit.

    The approximate $150 million Progressive war-cry is simply a stinky red-diapered herring tossed to the masses by Soros, et al.

    “Many of the hundreds of Madison East High School students didn’t know why their teachers brought them to the union protests at the Wisconsin Capitol Tuesday. Most were just happy to be out of school.”

    Great. These kids are marching, and they don’t even know what for.

    However, as evidence to support of Br. Nathanael’s central thesis of the Soros plan of ‘Open Society’ revolution and activism, one youtube commentor let the cat out of the bag trying to refute the image of brain-dead teenagers there for the pizza by boasting:

    “…Having gone to the protests for the past 4 days, I guarantee that we students are well versed in and very aware of what we are protesting against.

    “Also we are independently organized (not just sent by our teachers!!!!). Please consider other news sources before jumping to conclusions. Thank you.” — chabooga, Madison Memorial High School student

    “While part of the current unrest in Wisconsin is driven by local issues, new information has been uncovered indicating an orchestrated attempt to stir up ‘worker protests’ not only in Wisconsin but in at least a dozen states.

    “The coordinated effort is part of a ‘revolution’ spearheaded in part by a group called ‘Heartland Revolution,’ a Kentucky-based political action organization.

    The group was first envisioned by a Kentucky Democrat, John Waltz, who announced his candidacy in 2009 to oppose 2-term Republican Geoff Davis for the 4th Congressional District.”

    Frankly, as public employees, all of those striking teachers should be s#%!-canned.

    Any of the so-called doctors handing out fraudulent sick slips to teachers should have their state licenses yanked as well.

    Parents ought to be storming the walls of the teachers’ unions and holding them liable for a) striking teachers taking and/or sending any students off-campus without parents’ notifications and permissions; b) overtly politicizing the students during classroom hours.

    Like most States, Wisconsin is in a big financial mess actually facing a $3 billion deficit, according to Sheppard at Forbes. All the teachers’ unionists can think is about themselves and their greed.

    And ‘Br. Michael,’ its been years since the unions have actually been for the working person, inspired by true labor protestors and organizers of the Great Depression and Woodie Guthrie generation, siding against ‘The Company’ and ‘The Man’ and the genuinely deplorable working conditions and slave labor.

    Those were times when even the openly communist and socialist labor organizers of starry eyed idealists were not the least concerned with material enrichment and maintaining cushie financial and political union empires of their own.

    In true back-scratching style, the public unions are a silent partner with Big Corporations, federal government expansion, as well as a hefty voting and campaign finance block amounting to billions of campaign dollars, mostly for the Communists, er uh, “Progressive Democrats.”

    “ ‘Ending dues deductions breaks the political cycle in which government collects dues, gives them to the unions, who then use the dues to back their favorite candidates and also lobby for bigger government and more pay and benefits,’ Mr. Siegel told me.”

    Since the private sector has completely dried up for labor organizing, particularly the blue-collar manufacturing mainstay of labor unions, and it is still the private sector of 90% of all workers which is overwhelmingly under- or unemployed standing in breadlines, now the tax-payer funded public sector is what the big unions are fighting to keep their money-grubbing paws on.

    And boy, have Bush and now Obama grown federal government like a bloated hog, and not just from corporate capitalist greed, but union organizing capitalist greed.

    “Unions have a greatly diminished voice in the private sector, comprising only 7 percent of the work force, compared to 30 percent in the public sector.”
    http://www.politicsdaily.com/2011/02/18/marching-in-madison-are-union-workers-welfare-queens-or-friend/?ncid=txtlnkuspoli00000006

    About the only worthy, and highly neglected collective bargaining representation anymore is for such state-subsidized workers in the private sector like the qualified home health care attendents who are paid at, or a fraction above, minimum wage (sometimes adjusted to locality) and no benefits, working their hearts out to care for their clients nevertheless.

    While being well aware of the chicanery of Soros and his fellow ilk; I don’t think they’re the motivators behind the demos.

    They may be contributing, but the real problem here is public employee unions having too much power, for too long. Members are spoiled, to the point they are like children having the cookie jar taken away.

    My only regret is that Gov. Walker is too much of a coward to include cops and firefighters in his proposal. Cops, in particular, have abused collective bargaining.

  32. Art Massucco February 20, 2011 @ 4:40 pm

    Ron Paul, and previously Ralph Nader, seem to be the only two prominent politicians who are trying to tell the American people the truth without using the Neocon/Zionist titles to avoid the obvious attacks.

    I am an ex-repugnican of 50+ years but am going to give my full support to Dr. Paul for 2012 even though I do not agree with all of his views.

    It is a compliment to him that he was called antisemitic by scumbag David Horowitz. Also, I think, in general, the American people lack the intelligence, courage and morality necessary to save the Nation.

    This is a self inflicted injury for which they will pay dearly.

  33. KathJuliane February 20, 2011 @ 5:10 pm

    Moreover, these “Progressive Democrats” in Madison are now hellbent on “defying the tyranny of the majority.”

    Isn’t that what republican rule “of the people, by the people, for the people” is supposed to be — the voting last November expressing the majority will of the tax-paying people of the State of Wisconsin?

    Right. California voters overwhelmingly voted twice for the Protection of Marriage Act, and the Democrat GLBT thugs can’t live with “majority tyranny” either, now attempting political activism and subversion of the expressed majority will through the judicial system.

    And when all else fails for the GLBT “liberators,” call up the mob, especially destructive anarchists, and simply throw a riot, destroying the property of and terrorizing the moral and conscientious “tyrannical majority” in each voting district.

    Now it is a “tyranny” because the Communists, er uh, the overfed and filthy rich “Progressive Democrats” such as the Zionist Judaizer Pelosi and her Jew-backed ilk, and their union mob rule don’t like the majority rule exemplified by the Taxed Enough Already party.

    “At the same time, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee puts out a statement from Executive Director Michael Sargeant:

    “Wisconsin Democrats are standing up for the rights of [union protected public sector] working families by defying the tyranny of the majority.

    “By walking out, Democratic senators are signaling the enormity of this issue and their commitment to protecting those rights.”

    “The DLCC supports and applauds their efforts.”
    http://www.slate.com/blogs/blogs/weigel/archive/2011/02/17/organizing-for-america-versus-scott-walker-john-kasich-etc.aspx

    The DLCC neglects to say that it is the public sector unions who are the largest Democrat Party donors anymore promoting just about every liberal cause, yet they represent a small percentage of the total labor force.

    Huffington Post stated:

    “Building on the momentum in Wisconsin, where tens of thousands of protesters have turned out to oppose Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s effort to strip collective-bargaining rights from the state’s public-employee unions, PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA’S CAMPAIGN ORGANIZATION [Organizing For America, the activist arm of the Democratic National Committee] IS MOBILIZING ITS FOLLOWERS IN OHIO AND INDIANA, WHERE SIMILAR MEASURES ARE BEING CONSIDERED.” [Emph. Kj]

    Since the core problem is not “stripping” collective-bargaining rights, as HuffPo rather exaggerates, but an attempt to curb some of the free-lunch ride of fully taxpayer funded salaries and benefits garnered by the state’s public employee unions, then it is definitely a taxpayers’ issue especially those taxpayers as the vast majority of workers in the private sector who have no jobs or are currently underemployed to begin with.

    “Now folded into the Democratic National Committee, Obama’s campaign group Organizing For America is already actively engaged in Wisconsin and is beginning to ramp up organizing efforts in Ohio, though observers say the latter process is about a week behind that in Wisconsin.

    “The group is also beginning to dig into Indiana, whose legislature is considering a bill to limit collective bargaining by teachers.

    “A DNC staffer told The Huffington Post that the group upped its efforts in Wisconsin after Chairman Tim Kaine spoke with local legislators last week.

    “[Obama’s] OFA then began organizing turnout for Thursday’s statehouse rally and running phone banks in Ohio targeting state senators, which are slated to continue next week. This weekend, organizers have set up door-to-door canvassing in key districts that they hope will likewise put pressure on swing lawmakers.”
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/02/17/dnc-expands-mobilization-protests-ohio-indiana_n_824743.html

    From Organizing For America at my.barakobama.com (OFA is the upgraded name of his election campaign machinery after Obummer’s inaugaration):

    “From Hedge Fund News, March 13, 2007

    “Billionaire George Soros is supporting Barack Obama in the upcoming presidential election.

    “His choice marked a shift in allegiance from Hillary Clinton, who is vying with Obama to become the Democratic presidential nominee.

    “Soros, a hedge fund tycoon known for his philanthropy and political activism, has supported Obama since his 2004 campaign to become senator of Illinois….

    “In addition to Soros, Obama has the support of another marquee-name hedge fund figure - Eric Mindich, the Goldman Sachs prodigy who started $4 billion Eton Park Capital Management….”
    http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post/davidhadley/CXKM

    Does anyone think that Soros is not still a major backer today with his eye on controlling the electoral outcome of 2012, whether he shakes the Black-face Sock Puppet off of his hand or not?

    And, a lot of public employee retirement systems may invest in hedge funds as part of their portfolios. Even though public employee and teachers’ retirement systems are a mandatory part of benefit packages, unlike Social Security funded through direct employment taxation, a public employee’s retirement account is still a private account, and the retirement system a privately held system.

    The issue is not so much whether the public employee pays all or part of his/her retirement contribution from the paycheck or not, or before or after taxes are withheld and is considered deferred income or not, or whether the government agency contributes a matching amount as deferred compensation as well.

    The issue is WHO CONTROLS THE PUBLIC RETIREMENT SYSTEMS TO BEGIN WITH that are worth billions upon billions of dollars in earnings and investments?

    Anyone see a Soros connection after all to the public sector labor unions through Obama?

    Let us start the emergency action, to restore the sight of those who see, but don’t realize, what the ever-crying race of the ‘World Victims’ — Jews — in their poisonous religious ‘Babylonian Talmud’ are preparing for us, if we do not wake up as the society of the Non-Jewish World.

    Also for the sleeping Top Judges who are silent to this crime.

    Babylonian Talmud consists of 63 books and are superior to the Old Testament-Pentateuch. Each book of the Talmud has its name and number of pages to the book.

    WARN AND SPREAD TO ALL NON-JEWS!!!

    Orach Chaliim 57,6a — Christians to be pitied more than sick pigs

    Chullin 91b — Jews possess dignity even angels can not share.

    Zahar II 64b — Christian idolaters likened to cows and asses

    Kethuboth 3b — The seed of Christian is valued as seed of beast.

    Kidduschim 68a — Christians are like the people of an ass.

    Zohar II 64b — Christian birth rates to be diminished materially.

    I disagree.

    Employee union leaders and members in Wisconsin have stated their willingness to pay more for their retirement benefits and health insurance. What they are protesting is Gov. Walker’s blatant attempt to bust the union and take away their bargaining rights.

    Unions protect workers from greedy Jew-inspired employers.

    Where would we be without unions — back with child labor, 60- to 80-hour weeks, no Social Security, no Medicare, no paid vacations, and the greedy Jew-owned corporations collecting millions on the backs of the workers.

    Brother Nathanael, I agree that Soros and other Jews are in back of the current strife, but the Koch Brothers, Murdoch, Redstone (Rothstein) and other Jews are certainly backing Walker and the Republicans.

    Why not?

    In addition to being Republicans, they are also Jews. And Jews love nothing better than to cause chaos, to pit one side against the other.

    Where chaos exists, Jews rule!

    DWC, you wrote:

    Exactly right, DWC, As usual, you are right on in diagnosing our country’s main problem: the eternal, satanic, JEW.

    Bust Jews, not unions!

  44. KathJuliane February 21, 2011 @ 1:50 pm

    Dear Glory B,

    In the past working in public safety, I’ve done my share in “collective bargaining” with a municipal entity. From my experience in my personal opinion, Gov. Walker has dealt a very generous, modest and light touch in critical circumstances. Here in California, sure wish he was my gov.

    There are two distinct issues at play which are being deliberately conflated together for the sake of Kabuki Political Theater and an excuse for the Soros-Obama Puppet Team to stick their federal, communizing, social engineering noses into States’ rights areas where they don’t belong.

    Wisconsin also has strong “symbolic value” in that it is the liberal cradle of “Progressivism.”

    Also, there is popular propaganda confusion distinguishing between private sector employment unions, and public sector unions, and further distinguishing between state employee bargaining units and other public employee bargaining units.

    There are state employees, county/local employees, and municipal employees, all which have different forms of bargaining associations to deal with the particular form of government. And, different statutes are codified to apply to the respective public and private sectors as well.

    The beef is with the various tiers of Wisconsin state employees, such as university teachers, or state police and fire, and workers in state hospitals and such. It is about those who draw a paycheck directly from the state coffers, and does NOT affect other types of public sector labor associations and unions who negotiate with various government entities.

    The first issue is the proposed Budget Repair Bill, which means that Walker is attempting to repair a lethal Democrat government budget that was previously passed having within it $6 billion in deficit, and is unconstitutional in that it was not a balanced budget.

    Wisconsin is a house on fire, and Walker is trying to put it out. As this is a Budget Repair Bill, what he proposes is an emergency fix to keep the entire state from economically collapsing because of someone else’s very sloppy work.

    He’s managed to reduce the deficit by half to $3 billion over the next two years, without cutting any jobs or taking away any of the obligatory state welfare entitlements from about 200,000 people who would otherwise be cut.

    The second issue obscured by the Democratic hysteria deals with the fact of existing EXPIRED union contracts between the State of Wisconsin and public sector state employee ‘collective bargaining.’ It is a situation that occured because of negligence on the part of the very unions squawking now, and the complicit Democrat politicians of the previous regimes.
    ~~~

    “Saying those who didn’t see it coming must have been in a “coma,” Gov. Scott Walker unveiled sweeping legislation that would severely curtail public employee rights and dramatically change the way Wisconsin negotiates with unions going forward.

    “Officials alerted the Wisconsin State Employees Union on Friday that expired collective bargaining agreements would be canceled March 13.

    “State unions have been operating under the terms of their previous contracts, an arrangement that can be terminated with 30 days notice.

    “The news came on the same day the governor unveiled a budget repair bill that would remove nearly all collective bargaining rights for nearly all public employees in the state and make it easier for employers to fire workers that engage in some form of labor unrest.”
    http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/local/govt-and-politics/article_c814c77a-3600-11e0-b9e0-001cc4c03286.html

    Even this article is propagandized. Short and sweet, it is all a bluff on the part of the state unions in Wisconsin, and we are being further entertained with Obama-Soros political Kabuki Theater, playing to the gallery.

    Walker’s administration is NOT terminating any existing contracts between the State and state employees because The contracts are EXPIRED.

    As the employment contracts with the State have been long expired, they should have been renegoiated months and even years ago by the affected unions with the state. That’s why Walker said they must have been in a coma not to see this coming.

    The state employees have NO legislated collective bargaining rights because their contracts with the State of Wisconsin are kaput, and have been for some time. When the contract expires, so do the pertinent legislative statutes governing that contract.

    Reading through to the end of the article, the state unions know this perfectly well, that their contracts are expired and that they are toothless.

    Otherwise the unions would not be preparing to file lawsuits arguing “vested benefits” claimed as earned through past work, or attempt to make “collective bargaining” a “constitutional right” rather than a legislated contractual right.

    This clearly acknowledges that the unions know and understand that their contracts are expired contracts, and no longer protected by statutes that have also expired with the term of the contract.

    The unions will attempt to form a basis for political activism pushed the judiciary, in defiance of the Wisconsin electorate and taxpayers who elected the Walker administration and the conservative legislators to begin with to clean up the mess that Wisconsin is already in.

    There is no contractual agreement between the Walker administration and the unions, but the unions will attempt to push the idea that Walker “reneged” on contractual agreements.

    Mind boggling. There is no way that any employer can “renege” on contractual agreements, if the contract itself is expired, meaning non-existent.

    No contract, and the state employee unions have less than three weeks left on the 30 days notice that the ARRANGEMENT of operating under the terms of previous, expired contracts is terminated March 13.

    The state employee unions are not in a position to “make concessions” in order to “keep their collective bargaining rights” as they are working on an expired contract. This means they have no contract with the state and hence NO legislated collective bargaining rights, period, even over negotiating their own salaries, not to mention benefits.

    Walker did precisely what is lawful by giving a unilateral 30 days notice to state unions terminating existing status quo arrangements carried beyond EXPIRED contracts between employer and employees. The Democrat cowards abdicated on their responsibilities as well by throwing their tantrums and running away.

    These kinds of operational arrangements were originally intended as temporary measures until new contracts could be negotiated as a stop-gap to ensure continuity of employment and government services, especially if negotiations were protracted beyond the expiration date.

    I have no idea how long any of the contracts have been expired, but the very cushy full benefit packages paid by the taxpayers with little or no contribution by the employee were drawn up when Wisconsin had better days, and long before Walker and the new legislature were elected by the people of Wisconsin.

    Either the employer (State of Wisconsin) or the employees could have given at any time after the expiration of the pertinent contracts and statutes a unilateral 30-day cancellation notice of the operating agreement.

    Collective bargaining powers are conferred on state employees by the state Legislature and can be taken away. So the public unions are going to try to find another way around this.

    At the moment, there are something like 30 States which have statuatory full collective bargaining contracts for state employees, 16 States conferred with partial collective bargaining statuatory contracts with state employees, and 4 States, like Virginia, which confer no collective bargaining powers at all.

    Side note to ‘Brother Michael’ accusing Gov. Walker of lying.

    Did Walker Manufacture The Wisconsin Crisis?

    Nope.

    The liberal Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal, which endorsed Obama in 2008 and John Kerry in 2004, and certainly cannot be accused of being a supporter of Walker, debunks Rachel Maddow’s liberal fairy tales that “Wisconsin is running a budget surplus this year” and that Walker “manufactured the budget crisis” in Wisconsin:

    “Our conclusion: Maddow and the others are wrong. There is, indeed, a projected deficit that required attention, and Walker and GOP lawmakers did not create it.”
    http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statements/2011/feb/18/rachel-maddow/rachel-maddow-says-wisconsin-track-have-budget-sur/

    Labor unions are THE cause of the economic demise of this nation.

    They have been since DAY ONE. They were are and always WILL be the product of crime greed sloth corruption and the most vile attribute of mankind. PERIOD!

    They are comprised of the most ignorant violent leftist Democrap filth in this nation. I learned that from the school of hard knocks. Just what in hell do you think causes (major) inflation? LABOR COSTS!

    When some filthy beer guzzling goon with the IQ of an amoeba is earning (STEALING) an income of performing a task equal in complexity to that of a trained monkey while his backwards baseball hatted moron son is educated by a person (or at LEAST USED TO BE - I CAME FROM A FAMILY OF EDUCATORS) of high education morals and character - who makes a FRACTION of what the union goon does - THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED!

    We have become a nation that ENCOURAGES STUPIDITY and VIOLENCE as a substitute for education and wisdom as our benchmarks for advancement and paychecks. THAT IS MORALLY AND RATIONALLY WRONG - and we are paying for it now in our dumbed-down, greedy net deficit society.

    A UNION thug has NO - ZERO - NADA - incentive to produce a quality product. Union goods are TRASH! Remember the goons and their little Communist mantras? “LOOK FOR THE UNION LABEL.”

    Yes ‘Dorothy’ — labor unions and Communism are mutually nourishing environments. Look at the ‘numbers.’

    Well - what finally happened - was that consumers finally WOKE UP - got educated - and DID start looking for the damned union label. THEN they bought SOMEWHERE ELSE - where PRIDE was still part of the American work ethic!

    The absolute dumbest comment I have read yet - I’m sad to say - was something to effect that - “bust the Jews not the unions.” THE JEWS RUN THE UNIONS - pal!

    I built my company with my two hands - blood - sweat and tears during the wrost recession since the big one! I got MY education in the street hard school of knocks.

    There were times when I had my LIFE THREATENED by union scum. There were periods when there wasn’t a day that I didn’t carry a loaded firearm in my car for protection.

    I was in ACTUAL FEAR FOR MY LIFE for simply delivering my company goods to MY customer - and was THREATENED BY PHYSICAL VIOLENCE from these knuckle dragging scum.

    My foreman refused to deliver a load of structural steel one day and I asked him why. The prior foreman had hydrochloric acid thrown in his face by these animals, and was so terrified he quit his job.

    My foreman taught me how to drive a 16 wheeler flatbed steel truck well enough to get it to the loading yard gates. I took off my coat and tie rolled my sleeves up, grabbed a tire iron the size of an ax handle and jumped out of the cab — informed the goons that I was an ex-paratroop veteran and a free man and an American citizen — and that they would have to kill me before I let them steal my livelihood.

    I actually said something like that - maybe I had seen too many Bogart films.

    I was pissed! I was scared too - but too mad to back off. I wasn’t bluffing and they sensed it. I told them I would kill the first man to attack me! I was lucky - they let me drive in.

    The foreman was in my car around the corner. I told them that he would be coming up to drive the truck away after it was unladed. I also told them that IF he was physically harmed - I would return and personally take out every one of them and I WOULD remember their faces.

    I’m normally not that brave - but you can push me just so far. They stepped over the line. I did not sleep well that night. NO AMERICAN should EVER have to go through the kind of intimidation and fear I faced frequently in business life back then. They used terrorism and fear like all bullies. They were even worse in New York and Chicago.

    They were so bad and so violent and so obnoxious up North that My partner and I finally decided to not do any more trade shows in big union cities. Witnessing their conduct made us both ashamed to be Americans.

    Don’t tell me about labor unions. I could write a book about union violence!

    Kath - you got it RIGHT dear - BELIEVE ME. The Dems DOMINATE the school system today and hell will freeze over when they will take their personal time out to ‘DEMONSTRATE’ with their students - for the lives of the hundreds of thousands of innocent children we murder in Iraq and Afghanistan - OR similarly important REAL Moral issues! HYPOCRITES!

    Teaching is a PROFESSION in case you have forgotten what that entails as required by performance and code of conduct. Professionals do NOT advertise or bargain for their salaries - or at least they are not supposd to. I remember that much from the teacher educational graduate courses I took.

    A $ grand per week salary, plus benefits, and a full quarter year vacation is not such a bad deal. I live pretty well on about a third of that today.

    No new cars or country clubs or fancy toys. But I get by just fine and I pay for ALL my medical insurance - not just 5% of it as they are being asked in hard times - especially when half the Black teachers are still speaking in Ebonics to our kids. And we wonder why the USA churns out generation after generation of black and white morons.

    GO spend a FULL day at the schools you pay for and listen to what we have as ‘qualified’ teachers today. Teachers paid less in the POOREST countries in Europe put our own to SHAME!

    I live in a fairly large city and one of the 5 mayoral candidates is speaking Ebonics in the debates - EMBARRASSING & DISGUSTING! He should at least be literate if he aspires to be the CEO of my city.

    Union GREED has always been a big problem with American production. It was UNION GREED that drove mega-corp management to outsourcing labor - NOT The other way around. That’s a basic fact.

    NO uneducated unskilled beer guzzling NASCAR worshiping redneck slob was worth 50 bucks an hour for pushing a button - NOBODY!

    We had it all. I lived and worked in that era - and the greedy unions ran our economy into the ground. It’s as simple as that.

    Yes, Obama is trying to exploit public sentiment but your report comes off as blatantly biased partisan politics, defending the Repugnant-kins, who give pond scum a bad name.

    Have to STRONGLY disagree with the big bad Joe Cortina.

    To state that labor unions are the cause of economic decline is so overly simplistic as to be moronic. Yes, labor unions are corrupt to one degree or another, but labor unions were not the ones who decided to outsource jobs to China, Joe.

    Your critique is a bunch of profoundly ill informed right wing nonsense, and hot air. Go blow it Joe!

    @ all

    “We have become a nation that ENCOURAGES STUPIDITY and VIOLENCE as a substitute for education and wisdom as our benchmarks for advancement and paychecks. THAT IS MORALLY AND RATIONALLY WRONG - and we are paying for it now in our dumbed-down, greedy net deficit society.”- Joe Cortina

    Joe makes a good point, this is what the Zionist Jew has for Goyim as they make sure their children will all be well educated (many Ivy League today).

    White collar jobs: Lawyer, doctor, engineer, computer scientist, businessman, banker, CEO of companies, stock brokers….etc.

    You are not going to see many Jews doing blue collar work like roofing, carpentry, plumbing, electrician, mason, auto mechanic, construction work.

    Ohh, they will own the companies for all these materials, or own the construction site, or be the architect of the site, but you will not see many soiling their hands or getting them blisters.

    Most Jews and Jewish culture loath those who earn a living with their hands.

    Just take a look at a local phone book in any US town, or city, look at the doctors and lawyers names: Maurice, Irving, Schlomo, Haim, Barry, Howard, Leon, Gerard.

    I think, you get an accurate picture.

    Destroy our Goy lives, while their precious tribe stays sanitized from the society woes, that their white collar criminal bankers, and politicians, or Zionist puppet politician cause.

    I have to disagree with you on your opinion that the unions are the cause of all of our problems.

    KathJuliane

    You are getting down to the letter of the law as opposed to the spirit of the law. As GloryB has said: It’s not the unions, it is the Jews.

    Personally, I believe that the Jews pushed unions in order to get control of a lot of coporations that were fighting the Jewish takover of business.

    In a way, justice was done because the majority of these big business owners lived then like the Jews do today. Now that the Jews have the ownership and control of all businesses, unions all over the world are in decline.

    The way I see it, the problems in Wisconsin are caused by Jews just wanting chaos.

    Look at it another way folks. Consumer spending is 70% of the GDP of this country. If the state employees lose this one, they will have to most likely pull in their belts.

    This puts further pressure on the rest of the economy of that state because the state employees won’t have as much money to spend.

    This will probably mean more lost jobs in all sectors of the economy and will mean more unemployment that the state of Wisconsin will have to pay while receiving less taxes from citizens to pay down this other 3 billion.

    So you see, this is just another war over money. Soros and gang probably want the unions to get what they want because if they don’t, Soros and pals will have to put up with more mortgage headaches.

    And maybe that is just what the people of Wisconsin and the rest of the country should do. Give all of them money headaches. Stop paying mortgages, credit cards, car loans, and any other loan that they have from the banks.

    Now this is something that would get their attention.

  52. Glory B. February 21, 2011 @ 9:54 pm

    Joe Cortina,

    I usually enjoy your articles and agree with much of them.

    But since you have seen fit to attack me personally, I must reply in kind.

    Joe, pal, your emotional diatribe was both over-reaching and underwhelming.

    “Labor unions are THE cause of the economic demise of this nation?” NO, it’s the Jew-bankers and rich Jew capitalists.

    “They were are and always WILL be the product of crime greed sloth corruption and the most vile attribute of mankind. PERIOD!”

    Some of them are; most of them are made up of good, Christian, churchgoing, American men and women.

    “They are comprised of the most ignorant violent leftist Democrap filth in this nation.”

    Joe, pal, if people who disagree with you are what you call Democrap filth, then you should go hang out with your Repugnican scum friends.

    “The absolute dumbest comment I have read yet - I’m sad to say - was something to effect that - “bust the Jews not the unions.” THE JEWS RUN THE UNIONS - pal!

    Oh really? Well, here are the names of the last five presidents of the AFL-CIO:

    -George Meany, 1955-79. Jew? No, Irish Catholic.
    -Lane Kirkland, 1979-95. Jew? No, Protestant.
    -Thomas Donahue, 1995. Jew? No, Irish Catholic.
    -John Sweeney, 1995-2009. Jew? No, Irish Catholic.
    -Richard Trumka, 2009- Jew? No, Polish Catholic.

    Next time, Joe, pal, check your facts before you start frothing at the mouth.

    Joe, pal, is it the labor unions that are shipping jobs to China and India?

    No, it’s the Jew-bankers and rich Jew corporate executives that would rather pay peanuts to Chinese coolies and Indian untouchables than a living wage to American workers.

    And was it the unions that caused the death of 29 miners at the Upper Big Branch coal mine in West Virginia last April? No, it was the Massey Energy Co., the Virginia-based coal company that ignored many warnings about unsafe conditions in the mine, including building-up of methane gas.

    You know something, pal, I think that when the Lord Jesus Christ makes his next appearance, He will be a union member.

    After all, He hung around with tax collectors (gasp!), prostitutes (oh, nooooo), fishermen (that’s a good one!) and, yes, Samaritans.

    See, pal, Jesus was for the working man and against the rich Jew-establishment. And that’s why they killed Him.

    Gee, pal Joey, are we still friends?

    Greetings in the Lord, donna c,

    “Spirit of the law” means the legislative intent behind the enactment of the “letter of the law,” what the authors of the law originally intended.

    Dear Glory B,

    Public employees unions are an odd hybrid and this is where the confusion comes in.

    I’m no fan of Franklin D. Roosevelt, but even a broken clock tells the right time twice a day. Even the progressive’s hero, FDR, saw the dangers of public sector unions.

    Here is something the Soros-funded “Progessive Democrats” AND Obummer in their war against the People of Wisconsin and other like-minded State constituencies have studiously ignored from their hero FDR:

    “All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service.

    “The very nature and purposes of Government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer in mutual discussions with government employee organizations.”

    Denying or limiting government unions the power of collective bargaining is not an assault on all unions. Private-sector unions are regulated by the federal National Labor Relations Act, but public sector unions are excluded. Government employee unions are regulated by the respective States.

    Wisconsin is actually the birthplace of collective bargaining power for government unions, granting them the privilege in 1959, but many states have always operated, and still do, just fine without them.

    Virginia, for example, gives no collective bargaining power to government unions, but according to the Pew Center on the States, it still somehow manages to be one of the best managed states in the country.

    A little more than 9 percent of people who work for private employers now belong to unions. Membership has fallen off because of the transfer of manufacturing jobs overseas, and white-collar workers were never unionized.

    Among state, local and federal employees, the number is more than 36 percent that are unionized.

    Because government unions have been able to maintain much of their power over the years, politicians have had to learn to coexist with them.

    In recent years, public employee strikes have been rare. In exchange, governors and mayors have had to promise benefits that taxpayers couldn’t afford, and the chickens are coming home to roost in just about every state.

    For decades in WI, elected officials have promised and enacted generous benefits down the road and after they leave office. It’s the end of the road and the bill has come due.

    Industrial unions covering the private sector, like the AFL-CIO are ostensibly organized against the might and greed of corporate ownership — agreed in principle. Gone are the days, as I said, of genuine organized labor movements devoted strictly to workers’ rights amidst genuinely deplorable conditions from the Woodie Guthrie and Steinbeck era against corporate exploitation in the US.

    The ‘Union’ is no longer the same one my papa belonged to.

  56. KathJuliane February 22, 2011 @ 12:31 am

    More, dear Glory B,

    AFL-CIO is America’s largest federation of [private sector] labor unions, made up of 60 national and international (i.e., including Canada) unions, together representing more than 14 million workers — reaching 45 million people in union households.

    However, for a different aspect, you may want to read 100 Years of U.S. Imperialism: Stamped with a Union Label.

    AND: Workers of the World Undermined
    American Labor’s role in U.S. foreign policy

    Here, Beth Sims noted in 1993 that: “Although many of the individual programs sponsored by the AFL-CIO have helped foreign labor and even been sought by it, the overall foreign policy which is carried out by the AFL-CIO and its institutes often harms workers both in this country and overseas.

    “Derived from the ideological biases of a select group of top labor bureaucrats — many of whom lack actual trade union experience — the resulting policies have stressed anticommunism at the expense of worker militancy.

    Her most important point concerning helping the US imperialist adventures:

    “Simultaneously, these policies have affirmed the right of the United States to intervene in the affairs of other countries, whether through governmental or private actors.” (Sims, 1993, p.2)

    “On Sunday, labor activists gathered on the hottest day on record at Chicago’s Navy Pier — the site of the AFL-CIO convention — to oppose the government-funded National Endowment for Democracy, which has been implicated in a range of foreign policy atrocities, from supporting a failed coup in Venezuela to bankrolling company unions.

  58. KathJuliane February 22, 2011 @ 12:53 am

    So, public employee unions are organized against the might and greed…of…of…of the ordinary tax-paying public in Main Street America that they are supposed to protect and serve?

    Like I said, public employee unions are a strange hybrid.

    Public unions do serve an important social justice role, as public employees are excluded from all national labor laws. They attempt to guarantee maximum salary and benefits, and occupational health and safety standards for high-risk professions such as police, medics and firefighters, and just compensation and provisions for same.

    The public unions have helped to see that a great many genuinely once appallingly underpaid workers — public safety and administration of justice, school bus drivers, janitors (outside of New York City), home health care workers -– wouldn’t be too far underpaid.

    And public unions have been instrumental in setting up professionalism, standards, education and training, and pushing for occupational safety and health legislations, better equipment and working conditions, etc. The list is almost endless.

    On the other hand, however, these same public employee collective bargaining rights tend to come up with such “working conditions” as janitors negotiating to only mop a floor once a week, when they used to do it three times a week.

    The next time around, “working conditions” are renegotiated, and now the janitor has bargained to mop the floor only every other week for more pay and better retirement.

    Anyway, that role will be kept intact in Wisconsin in terms of retaining “collective bargaining” for the unions to win the highest base rates of pay possible indexed to regional and local cost of living.

    But, all over the US, we’ve had far too many state legislatures of both parties that have been cowed by the political power of the public sector unions, and that enacted contracts that force state and city governments to be run for the benefit of their employees, rather than for their citizens.

    Most of the time, the situation for the ordinary taxpayer is like the wolf, coyote and rabbit voting on what to eat for dinner. Poor taxpayer.

    Wisconsin’s public school teachers and the unions that represent them are saying budget cuts proposed by Republican Gov. Scott Walker would be devastating — but many of those teachers make more money than they’re letting on, and quite a few of them have tenured job security.

    In fact, they aren’t doing too badly at all. Keep in mind the median income for one person in the United States is currently about $34,868 U.S. city average, in Madison it is $31,097 ($29,578 for the entire state average), and national median household income is $50,303 per year.

    In the vastly larger private sector of workers, if there are any basic health and dental insurance benefits packages as added compensation, generally the worker still has to pay out of their own pocket about an average of 24-26% of the cost of the premiums, as well as additional co-pay, the cost of deductibles, etc.

    Many, if not most, private sector middle and small business employers cannot afford to offer premium juicy retirement packages as well.

    Also keep in mind that as of date since Walker’s proposed bill is still pending state legislature, any out of pocket expenses of Wisconsin teachers are virtually nil for the benefits packages which includes medical and dental insurance and retirement benefits as well.

    Currently, out of pocket for Wisconsin state employee retirement plans kicks in only after a voluntary decision to contribute to an optional high tier retirement package bracket, with a maximum of $16,000 or so a year out of pocket.

    Lower tier retirement plans are paid by the state employer.

    Walker’s Budget Repair Bill is requiring state and public workers to assume 5.8% of the retirement contribution costs out of pocket, and an increase from 6% to 12% of the cost of the existing health insurance coverage plans.

    This is still half of what the average American worker must pay as 24% out of pocket, as well as any co-pays and deductibles for their medical benefits, provided they even get this employment benefit.

  59. KathJuliane February 22, 2011 @ 12:58 am

    The Daily Caller broke out the salaries and benefits of the loudest whiners who have publicly entered the debate by commenting to the press.

    Wisconsin’s 2010 Teacher of the Year, Leah Lechleiter-Luke (Jewish, ya think? It is also a purely German surname as well) of Mauston High School, told CNN the budget changes would force her to look for additional part-time work.

    “When people say that public sector employees live high off the hog, I’d like to share that for 13 of my 19-year teaching career I have held a part-time job either in the summer or teaching night class at the local technical college,” Lechleiter-Luke told CNN. “In addition to tightening the belt even more and crossing our fingers that nothing breaks, I will need to find part-time work again.”

    While she complains about it, Lechleiter-Luke makes $54,928 in base salary and $32,213 in “fringe benefits,” which include health insurance, life insurance and retirement pay for working just 160 days a year.

    At the same time, the average working stiff and their spouse in a two-income household averaging $44-50,000 per year, each has to work 300 days for the same amount, and pretty much has to foot the bill for medical insurance to boot, if they can afford it.

    Brad Lutes (could be Jewish, but is also common among Gentiles) and his wife, Heather Lutes, told MSNBC’s Ed Schultz that Walker’s budget would hit them twice as hard.

    “Having to explain to an 8- and 10-year old that the governor of your state basically wants to take money away from dad and mom? It’s just really, really frustrating,” Brad Lutes told Schultz.

    He makes $49,412 in base salary with $27,987 in fringe benefits and his wife makes $50,240 with $9,413 in benefits. That’s $137,052 annually between the two of them.

    The article goes on and on. Go ahead, tell the kids why you can’t get them a new Ipod.

    When Barry Soetero, aka Obama, came into office, he shielded government unions from transparency by ending their reporting requirements to the Department of Labor that were mandated starting in 2001.

    Why? ACORN connections and Big Labor bosses perks.

    http://tinyurl.com/Obama-shields-BigLabor-Acorn
    http://tinyurl.com/Obama-shields-BigLabor-Bosses

    “Big labor [which includes the public sector unions] wants Obama to dilute union disclosure rules.”

    [This Lame Duck Session Appointment of the Labor Union ‘Czar’ in Dec 2010 occured just after the mid-term elections when the TEA Parties’ movements that swept conservatives back into local and state governments.]

    “Barack Obama’s pick for Secretary of Labor — Hilda Solis — brings impeccable big labor credentials.

    “The California Congresswoman first rode to power with labor backing against a fellow Democrat, has voted with the AFL-CIO 97% of the time, and got three-quarters of her campaign contributions from unions.

    “From day one of the Obama era, union leaders want the lights dimmed on how they spend their mandatory member dues.

    “The AFL-CIO’s representative on the Obama transition team for Labor is Deborah Greenfield, and we’re told her first inspection stop was the Office of Labor-Management Standards, or OLMS, which monitors union compliance with federal law.”

    As a result it is impossible for the American people to know for sure how much of their taxpayer revenue is being diverted into union coffers.

    Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC) states it has 98,000 members. It began as a statewide educational organization of teachers and administrators in 1853, and with a good purpose.

    Teachers literally had no rights, were hired by communities that quite often abused and stiffed them their salaries.

    After passage of a collective bargaining law for public employees, it evolved into a PRO-ACTIVE teachers union and in 1972 changed its name to the Wisconsin Education Association Council doing dual duty as a political lobby as well.

    Needless to say, the WEAC social engineering philosophy is oriented to the liberal, red-feminist agenda, and any conservative members that mandatorily must belong to this union has no say about such things as the union’s official stance of pro-abortion, for example.

    Later, WEAC expanded its membership to education support staff, as well as UW, technical college and State of Wisconsin education and information professionals.

    WEAC is further affiliated with the National Education Association (NEA). The NEA has 3.2 million members nationwide.

  61. KathJuliane February 22, 2011 @ 1:06 am

    Almost done, dear Glory B,

    Now, if you figure each WEAC union member pays an average of $750 annually in public union dues deducted involuntarily directly from their paychecks, that means the government union industry just in Wisconsin is worth upwards of $100 million a year just in dues, and very little of that is actually returned to the employees themselves.

    What I did find at this site was that for WEAC members’ deductions, the 2010 breakdown was:

    Teachers ($995.24) representing about 2/3 of the total membership, and after deducting lobbying and political expenses as non-tax deductible, 70.4% or 700.65 in each member’s dues are considered a miscellaneous deduction expense.

    Educational Assistants, total union dues deducted from paycheck was $468.92, with $316.24 allowable as a miscellaneous deduction expense.

    Substitute teachers - $314.60/305.16. Accountants & Bookeepers - $610.00 http://www.mtea.org/Members/Tax-Deduction-and-Union-Dues.nws

    Moreover, I found that part of the union membership dues are non-tax deductible “Political Action Committee Dues.”

    There are also an unknown number of retired members of WEAC-Retired Chapters and this life-dues category in each of the sub-chapters averages approximately $450.00 (I presume a one-time payment, but am not sure. It also describes annual dues as well.) http://www.weac.org/retired_members/chapters.aspx

    And WEAC has its own Not-for-Profit Insurance Corporation, the WEA Trust. http://www.weatrust.com/

    Glory B, just sticking with the paycheck deductions of active WEAC members amounting to perhaps $100 million a year, which has its own Insurance Company Trust as well, which is kept opaque to taxpayer accountability, you just gotta know there is a den of viper Jews feathering their nest among the union bosses and army of labor lawyers in the middle of the government union industry.

  63. KathJuliane February 22, 2011 @ 3:14 pm

    Dear Glory B,

    When it comes to the Labor Unions, I’m certain Joe C knows much, much more than he’s actually saying. I had a tight-lipped friend about his age that had been in some of the same places in the same era, too, who mentioned things once in awhile.

    The ACL-CIO boss heroes you cited weren’t so hot, even as nominal Catholic and Protestant “Christians.” Virtually all that you listed were members of branches of the Socialist Internationale to begin with.

    Quite often the AFL-CIO operations overseas were very different from what was carried on domestically in the US.

    In foreign places, the AFL-CIO is one of the most despised organizations in the world for its two-faced US corporate imperialism in foreign countries, while simultaneously usually being “for the workers” domestically, although in reality, after winning their deals, the AFL-CIO acted as corporate bulldogs.

    And, what goes around comes around — the AFL-CIO set up the labor conditions for our outsourcing problems now.

    The labor unions almost unanimously supported Jewish Labor Zionist unions in the US and the establishment of Israhell before, during and after WW2. They helped raise funds and materials, running contraband and smuggling arms and materials to the Jews in the Middle East, allying with organized crime when it was expedient for operations as well.

    The AFL-CIO bosses all followed the lead of such likes as Zionist Tommy D’Alessandro Mayor of Baltimore and his connections with Big Labor, father of Nancy Pelosi, a Social Democrat and Zio-Catholic herself.

    They are all more or less pressed from the same mold.

    The AFL-CIO worked hand in glove with the US Government, Big Business and the CIA, and even the seldom mentioned Catholic church’s hierarchy for the sake of “freedom and democracy” (translated corporate profits) and US imperialism.

    The AFL-CIO was a prime political mover and shaker and partners in crime with both the US government and Big Business in the bloody revolutions and counter-revolutions, regime changes and battles in mostly Central and South America, Africa, Asia and elsewhere.

    Big Labor is nothing but the political strongarm of the Democrat-Socialist-Labor-Progressive Party and willing enablers and executioners for Big Business and Government when it suits Labor’s demand for more global political power.

    It’s Time to Come Clean
    Open the AFL-CIO Archives on International Labor Operations

    Excerpts:

    FOREIGN POLICY: TWO APPROACHES

    The hallmark of the traditional AFL-CIO foreign policy of the Meany and Kirkland regimes (hereafter, Meany/Kirkland) was an acceptance of US domination of other countries, especially in the so-called “third world.”

    The traditional approach accepted and then acted to maintain this domination.

    Meany/Kirkland believed that domination of the world economy by US corporations was good for American workers, and so they allied themselves with those forces that supported US corporate expansion, and especially investment in developing countries (see, e.g., Scott, 1978; Cantor and Schor, 1987; Sims, 1992).

    Although developed independently from that of the US Government (see Scipes, 1989), the Meany/Kirkland foreign policy promoted US corporate investment overseas, objectively aligning the AFL-CIO with the US Government and US corporations overseas.

    This alignment with the government and with US corporations overseas continued over time, even when the government and these corporations were pursuing anti-labor policies in the United States (see Cantor and Schor, 1987).

    Mantsios points out the long-term ramifications [OUTSOURCING] for US workers in this approach: “BY WORKING TO MAKE THE WORLD SAFE FOR US BUSINESS IN THE 1950s, ’60s, AND ’70s, THE AFL-CIO LAID THE GROUND FOR LABOR’S CURRENT PREDICAMENT; THE WORLD BECAME ALL TOO SAFE FOR US CORPORATIONS INTERESTED IN CHEAP LABOR AND UNREGULATED ENVIRONMENTS” [Emph. Kj] (Mantsios, 1998: 48).

    AFL-CIO FOREIGN POLICY UNDER MEANY AND KIRKLAND: 1962-1995

    After the Cuban Revolution succeeded in January 1959, leaders of the AFL-CIO decided that they had to create a new foreign affairs operation in Latin America to control labor movements in the region; the previous regional organization, ORIT (Inter-American Regional Organization of Workers in English) had proven to be too inefficient and not sufficiently reliable (Hirsch, 1974; Spalding, 1988c).

    This control was needed to ensure the access and profitability of US corporate investments in these countries, and to ensure that the leaders of these countries would continue supporting US foreign policy at the global level.

    As Gregory Mantsios notes, the AFL-CIO’s “advocacy of capitalist values and principles in general and its specific desire to promote and protect US economic (read ‘corporate’) interests abroad led it to promote international interventionist activities jointly funded by the US State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency and, as Meany proudly acknowledged, a large number of US corporations” (Mantsios, 1998: 48).

    Once AFL-CIO leaders came to that position, they decided to work with any corporation and/or government agency that would work with them.

    They institutionalized this labor-corporate-government alliance in Latin America by establishing AIFLD (the American Institute for Free Labor Development).

    AIFLD’s approach was to support or create “free trade unions,” and use these unions to split any labor movement that was critical of the United States or US corporate investment, or even one that was critical of the government in their country for its policy of supporting the United States.

    This labor-corporate-government alliance in Latin America was paralleled by ones in Africa (African American Labor Center) and Asia (Asian American Free Labor Institute).

    I have to agree with both Joe Cortina and KathJuliane.

    I was going to leave my comments to Glory B but it would of only been a brief summary of what these two have already said and I couldn’t have said it better.

    Richard Trumka of the AFL-CIO is nothing more than another Jew puppet. If you destroy these communist labor unions, you destroy a piece of the Jewish soul!

    @ All

    I think Hoff use to say it best.

    His analogy was the greedy big business Jews, paying you a dollar a day, while they are millionaires, pushes the common man to unions.

    Then the Jew uses organized crime to take them over, and then extorts from the other end.

    The Zionist Socialist Democrat’s girl, Queen Nancy Pelosi, makes her speech from the throne applauding the union protesting and commie revolutionary wannabees in Wisconsin:

    “I’m very proud of what they are doing,” she said imperiously.

    “They’re standing up for the rights of America’s workingmen and -women to have a voice at the table about their jobs and their futures, so yes, I support them.”

    KathJ’s question from the fool’s footstool to Pelosi:

    “Who has the better job: the unemployed union auto worker in Detroit whose job was shipped overseas, or the non-union auto worker in Alabama that has a job?”

    Having survived the ’60s riots of everyone protesting everything in mass civil unrest in California, I can only call the Madison protest scene — ‘Berserkeley-lite, with snow and yoga.’

    Brother Nathanael,

    I find your dismissal of Br Michael’s comments as a “copy and paste from some union worker’s blog” to be quite sad.

    For you to trivialize workers rights in such a way is stunning. I realize there are corrupt unions out there.

    But do you realize what many honorable citizens of this once great nation have gone through to ensure that they at least have a seat at the bargaining table in our business driven society?

    Will you ignore what I am saying to you? Can you answer me?

    I too fear communist takeover.

    Do not be fooled, for that would be too simple.

    Real men in real times of real desperation have fought against real, evil power structures to creates things like collective bargaining.

    They were given strength against all odds to do so by their Creator. Do not trivilialize their sacrifice.

    But it is not I who will judge you. God Bless.

  68. Roy February 23, 2011 @ 12:44 am

    When will people understand that American labor unions and communism have no connection?

    Bolshevik Russia did not begin with using collective bargaining to break down an oligarchy.

    Bolshevik Russia was an oligarchy.

    BOTTOM LINE: The Oligarchy can use Communism, Capitalism, or whatever ism at their disposal.

    The problem is not unions, the problem is not political.

    The Problem is the Manipulative Capacity of the Oligarchy.

    W.O.W.

    Anytime people organize to improve their working conditions, that’s communism?

    Kind of a short-sighted view, isn’t it?

    Yes there are Jews in labor unions, but that doesn’t mean they control them.

    Seems to me the Jew-bankers and media moguls are more anti-middle class than the unions, most of whose members are middle class.

    That’s who we should be opposing, not working people.

    Obama Wants to Grow Big Government and Big Business and Big Labor is Willing To Help Him

    Feb 2011 — “When President Barack Obama named Gene Sperling [Jew] as his chief economic adviser, two of Sperling’s early calls went to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donohue [former president of the AFL-CIO].

    “…Sperling crossed Lafayette Square, the park that separates the White House from the [COC’s] business lobby’s headquarters.”…
    http://articles.sfgate.com/2011-02-06/news/27105858_1_chamber-president-barack-obama-health-care

    “In the first quarter of 2010, less than 42 percent of America’s personal income came from private sector wages and salaries, down from almost 45 percent when the recession began.

    “About 8.5 million jobs have been shredded in the economic whirlwind of the past two years. And yet, according to a USA Today analysis, the number of federal employees making $100,000 or more has jumped 5 percent since the beginning of the recession.

    “The average salary for federal workers is currently $71,206. The average salary for their private-sector counterparts? About $40,331.

    “And that money comes from the very private-sector taxpayers who are struggling to make ends meet.

    “But public sector unions need more government workers and higher salaries to boost their membership and most importantly, membership dues. UNIONS SEE THEIR FUTURE IN PUBLIC SECTOR JOBS. [Emp Kj]

    “To put it mildly, it’s a cash cow. Here’s an idea for labor leaders.

    “Instead of crusading against a measly pay freeze, how about returning the $171.5 million that they spent on mostly failed attempts to reelect Democrats in 2010 to their members?” http://laborpains.org/tag/richard-trumka/

    In states that permit the practice with cleverly worded legislation, these monies are involuntarily strong-armed by the unions from mandatory union dues deducted from a person’s paycheck for union bureaucracy’s lobbying and PAC’s the Democrap liberal agenda.

    In these states, even if the employee union member is NOT a registered Democrat and even stands in political opposition outside the workplace, in states that permit this practice, they have no say nor can they refuse to have this political action money deducted.

    Can anyone see behind the curtain of the Obama-Soros-Organizing Political Kabuki Theater public workers’ protests in Madison Wisconsin now, framed as a faux labor uprising against the duly elected Governor Walker his proposed emergency measures to keep the State of Wisconsin from bleeding to death?

    For RZN Family overseas, please do not confuse the current political farce in Wisconsin over “workers rights” and “collective bargaining” rhetoric with the very real, and apparently legitimate and honorable struggles of the people throughout the Arab nations against US-Zionist backed tyrannical regimes.

    The stunts that the Democrats and the asinine public sector and teachers’ unions, especially their bosses are pulling, which have very little to do with historical labor struggles and is all about greed and political power.

    The Wisconsin liberals actually dishonor what the brave people are rising up and doing in the Middle East and cheapen the the priceless cost of blood that they are shedding, and that of the resistance of the Palestinian people these many years against the Zionist entity and the Jews.

    From National Right To Work
    http://www.nrtw.org/

    [Note the timing of the article. Wisconsin is a trial battleground after Democrats and Big Union Bosses went to “Defcon 1″ earlier in the month. Not the least of which is the battle for the reassertion of Constitutional States’ Rights and Sovereignity.]

    Wall Street Journal: As More States Consider Right to Work, Will GOP Cave to Big Labor?
    Thu, 02/03/2011 - 13:44 — Nick Cote

    In an editorial yesterday, the Wall Street Journal made both the moral and economic case for states to end forced unionism by passing Right to Work laws:

    (WSJ) Contrary to much union rhetoric, right-to-work laws don’t ban or bust unions. They simply grant individual workers the right to join or not to join, even once a workplace is organized by a union.

    Workers who decline to join the union can’t be forced to have dues taken out of their paycheck and thus used to finance union political campaigns. Most right-to-work states are in the South and West, and only Oklahoma has adopted this freedom to choose in the last 20 years.

    Right-to-work states outperform forced-union states in almost every measurable category of worker well-being. A new study in the Cato Journal by economist Richard Vedder finds that from 2000 to 2008 some 4.7 million Americans moved from forced-union to right-to-work states.

    The study also found that from 1977 through 2007 there was “a very strong and highly statistically significant relationship between right-to-work laws and economic growth.”

    Right-to-work states experienced a 23% faster rise in per capita income over that period. The two regions that have lost the most jobs in recent years, the once-industrial Northeast and Midwest, are mostly forced-union states.

    (Cote) These arguments demonstrate why poll after poll shows that 80 percent of Americans — even rank-and-file union members [link on webpage] — support the Right to Work principle. Unfortunately, the Wall Street Journal warns, politicians who claim they agree could instead appease the union bosses:

    (WSJ) [Indiana Governor Mitch] Daniels adds that the lack of a right-to-work law “does hold us back economically. There is no doubt about it.”

    He estimates that when competing with Southern states for businesses, “a very large number—perhaps as many as a quarter—of the deals we don’t get a shot at are for just this reason.”

    This damage has motivated Indiana Republicans, who now control both legislature chambers, to announce that they want to pass a right-to-work law.

    Unions immediately went to Defcon 1, Democrats are up in arms, and Republicans could yet buckle under this union pressure. Even Mr. Daniels, who has stood up to union opposition in the past, seems hesitant.

    He told the Indianapolis Star that right to work “may be worth a look,” but he added it “is not on my agenda.” He’s worried that the issue so antagonizes unions that it could derail the rest of his legislative agenda.

    We hope Republicans don’t flinch. Right-to-work laws make states more economically competitive, but the bigger issue is about individual rights. Workers should have the right to join a union but also the right not to.

    Indiana and other states with new Republican majorities have a rare opportunity to pass a major reform that will reduce union power, help to attract new jobs, and liberate workers from union coercion.

    They are gonna try everything to take away Union rights which will take away their voting power which in effect will make them non-existent.

    Once Jews take away our right to organize they will be the only organized group. Unions benefit the working class not the elites so all of you who want to believe that Unions = communism are playing their game.

    Jews joining union showdown in Wisconsin over gov’s proposal

    SAN FRANCISCO (JTA) – A growing number of Jews in Wisconsin are joining the protests in Madison against a budget-cutting proposal by the governor to eliminate most collective-bargaining rights for public-sector employees.

    “Judaism has long stood for the rights of the worker, beginning with the biblical injunction of Deuteronomy: ‘Do not take advantage of the hired worker who is poor and needy,’ ” said Rabbi Bonnie Margulis.

    Margulis joined two other Madison rabbis on Tuesday at a news conference at the state capitol building organized by the Interfaith Coalition for Worker Justice to protest Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal.

    Aiding and abetting the shut down of normal legislative and government operations”

    This is the second week of protests against the bill, which prompted the 14 Democrats in the state Senate to flee the state on Feb. 16, two days after the bill was introduced.

    Under Wisconsin legislative procedure, their continued absence effectively blocks any vote on the matter in the Republican-controlled state Senate.

    Rabbi Bruce Elder of Glencoe, Ill., was one of two clergy members to offer the Wisconsin Democrats sanctuary, via an initiative of Interfaith Worker Justice. [Interfaith Worker Justice of Jews, Judeo-Christians, and Judaizing Muslims is closely tied the the Jewish Labor Committee, an ally of the AFL-CIO in Wisconsin.] He said he has not heard back from the legislators.

    “We don’t know where they are, but we assume they are OK,” he wrote in an email. “Our offers of sanctuary remain open and standing.”

    Oh, Puleez. “Sanctuary.” What drama.

  78. KathJuliane February 25, 2011 @ 4:23 pm

    Fact: According to jsonline.com:

    “The budget repair bill that Walker, a Republican, unveiled Friday would empower the secretary of administration to sell heating and cooling plants at state facilities, including prisons and University of Wisconsin campuses.

    “It’s unclear what the market value of the plants would be. The Legislative Fiscal Bureau analyzed a similar proposal in 2005 and estimated the value of the 34 plants at $235.9 million, offset by $83.9 million in debt.

    “How much savings the state could generate would depend not only on a private company’s willingness to buy the plants but also on the private company’s supplying power, heating or cooling to the facility, said Darrin Renner, a fiscal bureau analyst.

    “A similar proposal was inserted into the 2005-’07 budget by Republican Rep. Scott Jensen. The plan, vetoed by then-Gov. Jim Doyle, a Democrat, would have led to the outsourcing of 271 state government jobs.”

    [So, this is not the first time that the sale of the state-owned plants has been proposed. No one in Wisconsin should be surprised.

    The energy plants issue is a mess that Doyle left behind. Why didn’t he bring these plants into EPA compliance while he and the Democrats were in control for so long? It was the Doyle regime that received Obama’s stimulus money.

    These plants would save a lot of money for the state if the EPA wasn’t requiring hundreds of millions of dollars in rehabilitation or reconstruction costs for those plants to come into compliance.

    Since the state was left broke and in the hole with it’s assets looted by the eco-friendly Doyle, there’s no money left. Walker has to come up with $137 million before the end of FY 2010-2011 - June 20. Doyle borrowed and spent some of it on buying swamps and paying off WEAC.]

    “Several state power plants are under scrutiny because of their air pollution, raising a question about how marketable they may be.

    “Last year, the Environmental Protection Agency began an investigation to determine whether plants at UW campuses and prisons were in violation of the Clean Air Act.

    “In addition, air pollution standards being implemented by the EPA are expected to result in older coal-fired power plants’ needing to add pollution controls or switch to cleaner-burning natural gas.
    http://www.jsonline.com/business/116204654.html

    “Madison Gas & Electric Co. is a potential buyer, given it already has facilities in downtown Madison and has worked with the state on the natural gas-fired cogeneration facility built several years ago to serve UW-Madison.

    “The state is one of our largest customers and we’ve, of course, done a few projects with them. We’d like to keep that relationship working as they sort out how to best meet their energy needs,” MG&E spokesman Steve Kraus said.” (same link).

    I checked the parent company of Madison G & E, MGE Energy, and didn’t find either of the Koch brothers names in their corporate governance. But, they could be shareholders, and could sell coal to Madison G & E.

    Jeff Plale, director of the state Division of Facilities in charge of those plants, also said he’s not aware of any tie between the proposed sale of the plants and the Kochs’ support of Walker. Koch Industries have publicly stated they have no intentions of

    And his answer to the proposed optional “bid or no-bid” sales by the state? Whoever bought those power plants would then still have to bear the cost of bringing them into EPA compliance with hundreds of millions of dollars of rehabilitation technology or reconstruction.

    Selling the facilities could bring in hundreds of millions of dollars — IF the state could find any buyers to begin with, despite concerns about pollution from burning coal.

    Just in case only one buyer or just one contract private entity for operation actually could be found, then the Repair Bill authorizes “Wisconsin Department of Administration may sell any state-owned heating, cooling, and power plant or may contract with a private entity for the operation of any such plant, with or without solicitation of bids, for any amount that the department determines to be in the best interest of the state.”

    Any proceeds is proposed going into an financial stabilizing fund.

    Response:

    The companies located in Wisconsin owned by Koch Industries — which include the Georgia-Pacific Corporation and the Koch Pipeline Company — have no direct stake in the public employee union debate with the Wisconsin government, the public employer.

    A balanced budget would help Koch Industries no more and no less than the rest of the state’s private sector workers and employers.

    The company has about 3,000 employees in Wisconsin, including workers at a toilet paper factory and gasoline supply terminals. The pending legislation would not directly affect its bottom line in that state.

    Response: It is a dispute between PUBLIC-SECTOR UNIONS and DULY ELECTED OFFICIALS over how best to serve the PUBLIC INTEREST. There are 16 duly elected DEMOCRAT public officials that have abdicated their legislative responsibilities to do just that.

    The $43,000 came from the Koch Industries PAC, meaning this was generally employees or retirees in Wisconsin who made the contributions, and not personally from the Koch brothers themselves.

    As the brothers are not residents of Wisconsin, but Kansas, they would not be able to contribute, as Wisconsin does not allow out of state campaign contributions for state races.

    From Democracy Campaign wisdc.org:

    “Walker’s gubernatorial campaign also received $43,125 in contributions from Wisconsin housing and realtor groups, which was the top contribution.

    “That was out of more than $11 million that Walker raised, and $37.4 million that was spent, altogether between Republicans, Democrats and Independents, on the 2010 race for Governor of Wisconsin.

    “Walker’s opponent, Democrat Tom Barrett, and his running mate Tom Nelson spent a combined $7.19 million.

    [Many of the public employee unions have a separate voluntary non-tax deductible periodic contribution and/or automatic payroll deduction account above and beyond union dues, which is incorporated as a 527 specifically for union political action and lobbying, called a COPE (Committee On Political Education), categorized by one’s local union, e.g. Local # SEIU-COPE.

    These COPE PAC political contributions further help union-backed candidates and campaign committees that broadly support education and labor at the local, state, and national levels.]

    In Wisconsin, “Outside electioneering groups funded mostly by contributions from unidentified business, union and ideological interests spent an estimated $12.1 million in [the] race – mostly to sponsor broadcast ads and mailings that attacked the candidates rather than discuss the issues.

    “Independent expenditure groups, which must file fundraising and spending reports with the state, spent $6.07 million and phony issue ad groups also spent about $6.08 million on the governor’s race.

    “Phony issue ad groups represent many of the same special interests as independent expenditure groups but are not required to publicly identify their fundraising or spending activities in reports to the state.

    “But in many cases, independent expenditure groups also avoid identifying donors in their fundraising and spending reports. A Democracy Campaign report last month found that independent expenditure groups spent about $10 million and phony issue ad groups spent about $9 million on all of the legislative and statewide races for governor, attorney general and lieutenant governor.

    “However, only about $6 million of the money spent came from identified donors.

    The top-spending special interest groups in the governor’s race were:

    •The Republican Governors Association which used both independent expenditure and issue ad groups and spent an estimated $5 million to sponsor numerous TV campaign ads.

    The group’s commercials regularly tied Barrett to the outgoing and unpopular Democratic Governor Jim Doyle [and his documented actions and corruption. He wasn’t long nicknamed “Diamond Jim” Doyle for nothing.]

    •The Democrat Greater Wisconsin Committee which spent an estimated $4.8 million in the governor’s race – mostly on TV ads to smear Walker.

    The Madison-based group has backed Democratic candidates for the legislature and statewide office since it was founded in 2004. It used independent expenditure, issue ad and 527 groups to conduct its activities. A 527 group can raise and spend unlimited amounts to spend on electioneering activities.”
    http://www.wisdc.org/index.php?rw=pr020811.php&CTGTZO=-360&CTGTZL=-360

    [The perfectly legal $43,000 contribution by the Koch Industries PAC that has the Left, Eco-anarchists and the Jews riled up, represents an earth-shattering one-tenth of one percent (0.1% or 0.001) of the total money spent on Wisconsin’s 2010 gubernatorial campaign.]

    The Donkey Braying at the Elephant

    Moreover, Walker has never personally met the Koch brothers, both Walker and the Koch brothers have publicly said that, unless someone wants to count the hoax call as a meet.

    Think about this. If Walker and either of the Koch brothers had ever actually met in person, or talked before on telephone, don’t you think that Walker just might have recognized the hoaxter’s voice as not being David Koch’s to begin with?

    The very fact that the hoax occurred is because Walker thought he was speaking to David Koch for the first time. Someone had to be fairly certain that Walker and the Kochs had never met, since the Kochs live in Kansas, not Wisconsin, in order to pull the hoax off.

    Otherwise, Walker would have known immediately from the voice that the caller was not one of the Kochs.

    As far as “union busting,” it is not. It is technically not even denying any existing “collective bargaining rights” because there are no new contracts whatsoever. It died in Wisconsin legislature lame duck session on December 15, 2010. Essentially, everything under the Democrat Governor Doyle’s administration has been running on 2007-2009 contracts with extensions.

    The lame duck, midnight hour session of both the Democrat Assembly and Senate at the very end of December FAILED TO PASS 15 of the 16 pending 2009-2011 public employee biennial contracts (note the date as FY 2009-2011.)

    Moreover, all of the circumstances that went into this very special lame duck session are truly astonishing. The Wisconsin legislature has not had a lame duck session in 40 or 50 years.

    These contracts should have been negotiated and settled by the Democrat Gov Doyle and the Democrat legislature sometime in FY 2008-2009 during the previous contract cycle. The affected public employees have not had a contract since June 30, 2009, but an extension of the 2007-2009 contracts.

    In other words, the situation now is that the public employees were still working off extended 2007-2009 contracts until the 2009-2011 could be ratified, which would then expire June 30, 2011.

    Walker is proposing “Right to Work” legislation, which in no way denies collective bargaining and the right of employees to form unions and associations.

    It is “busting” public sector union monopoly bargaining privileges, aka forced collective bargaining with a forced monopoly privileged union business corporations.

    For example, if you are a teacher in Wisconsin, one way or the other, you are owned by WEAC and all of the other affiliated teachers’ unions like the NEA, and pay union dues, whether you want to or not.

    If you are a public sector union member, you pay union dues, the larger part of it is tax-deductible, and a fair percentage non-deductible as it is used for political and lobbying purposes.

    If you are not a union member, then a mandatory non-tax deductible “fair share” deduction goes to the union anyway, on the theory that that the non-union member still benefits from contract negotiations by the union,

    Response: The Left hysterical impression drummed up by the Jew York Times that the current turmoil in Wisconsin is all about the Koch Brothers, even though the Koch brothers have not been anything close to major players in Wisconsin. Their home state is Kansas.

    Koch Industries ranks 83 on on Source Watch’s list of 140 Top All Time donors from 1989-2010 to either party or both (with clever, but simple graphics of fences, donkeys and elephants that even show the degree of tilt in terms of donations.)

    41 out of the 140 donors (less than 1/3) are clearly tilted Republican, with the first moderate Republican group showing up only in spot 18, and that is the National Auto Dealers Assn, at $26,311,758. At number 20, is United Parcel Service.

    In #1 Major Heavy Hitter Spot is ActBlue: Launched in 2004, ActBlue bills itself as “the online clearinghouse for Democratic action.” As a federally registered political action committee, it serves as a conduit for online contributions to Democratic candidates and committees.

    That is, ActBlue bundles and transmits earmarked contributions from individuals raised on their website to specific candidates….Through mid-2010, it has helped funnel more than $134 million — and counting — in contributions to the Democrat Party. (It’s now over $170 million per ActBlue website.)

    Because much of that money comes in donations below the $200 threshold for itemized disclosure, the total amount given by donors via ActBlue is considerably greater than the totals listed below, which are based on FEC filings of candidates and committees that receive this money.

    The group also maintains a 527 political organization registered with the Internal Revenue Service for non-federal political activities, and ActBlue has registered as a [Democrat] political committee in more than 20 states for its state-level activities. It does not lobby the federal government.

    In the next 20 donors 11 are unions, all strongly Democrat. In October, the AFL-CIO and SEIU announced that they were pooling $88 million for national campaigns supporting Democrat candidates. I don’t have a figure for the rest of the top unions on this list for the 2010 elections.

    In #3 spot, is American Federation of Federal, State and Municipal Employees, at $43,477,361, 1989-2010, allied with the AFL-CIO and Jewish Labor Committee. The NY Times in October reported that AFSCME was spending $87.5 million on 2010 campaigns.

    The Jewish Labor Committee shows up everywhere. They are allied with the Israeli trade union movement, along with the allied AFL-CIO and SEIU support the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), which is a misnomer.

    #4 Spot is Goldman Sachs at $33,387,252, 1989-2010

    Way down the list at #83 is Koch Industries at $11,002,235 1989-2010, 10% Democrat and 89% Republican donations.

    The Left is corrupt from top to bottom, in ways far different from the Right. If one were to single out the single most corrupt aspect of American public life, it would be this:

    Democratic officeholders give away the store to public employee unions — at the taxpayers’ expense, of course, not theirs — so that the unions can in turn kick back a portion of their collusive spoils to those very politicians in the form of campaign contributions.

    It is this corrupt relationship that threatens to bankrupt many of our states and municipalities.

    California’s Public Employees Retirement System is so bad off, that it is the only state retirement system, besides New Jersey, that has ever been under SEC investigation.

    As Michael Barone summed it up:

    “In effect, public employee unions [as corporate businesses in their own right, NOT the rank-and-file workers who are members and supply the dues] are a mechanism by which every taxpayer is forced to fund the Democratic Party.”

    That is precisely correct. And the Democrats don’t want any competition, nor the public sector unions either, especially in Wisconsin, because it is not a Right to Work state which Walker is advocating, where employees can choose not to join the union, or refuse that portion of union dues used for lobbying and political purposes, and not directly related to wages and working conditions.

    You wanted Jews? Let’s play spot the Jews in Labor.

    Meet our comrade commissars and political officers of the old East European Jewish Bund in American labor and trade unions which actively supports Labor Zionism and Israhell, and the organized network and twilight realm where organized crime also meets of Mossad, sanayim and sabbath goyim of Gentile Labor in the name of “solidarity.”

    The full name is ‘United Hebrew Trades - New York Jewish Labor Committee.’

    Their motto: “The Jewish voice in the labor movement, and the voice of the labor movement in the Jewish community.”

    The JLC is an American secular Jewish organization dedicated to promoting labor union interests in Jewish communities and Israel, and Jewish interests within unions.

    The organization is headquartered in New York City, with local/regional offices in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles. There are also a number of volunteer chapters throughout the US.

    The JLC acts as an organized labor pivot and nerve system between American labor unions and Israeli trade union movement, enabling the entire “Jewish community and the trade union movement to work together on important issues of shared interest and concern, in pursuit of “shared commitment to economic and social justice.”

    The local Bnai Brith shows up with them as well.

    Local Gentile union bosses are treated to visits to Israhell, just like the political class.

    Our good Catholic Christian “pal,” the newly elected President of the AFL-CIO, Richard L. Trumka, went through his rite of passage bootlicking and genuflecting to the symbolic “blue collar” Jewish Labor Committee in 2010 just like the political class does with the “white collar” AIPAC.

    By doing this, Trumka also signaled at this time that the extensive network of affiliated and allied American labor unions out of “solidarity” were to not listen to any BDS calls for pro-Palestinian and Gaza Flotilla boycotts by unions. Business as usual just as it was under Sweeney and his predecessors.

    “Trumka spoke out clearly and forcefully in opposition to calls to boycott Israel Before 475 participants of the annual Human Rights Dinner of the JLC, held in New York City on October 27th, Trumka stated that “we’re proud to stand with the JLC to oppose boycotting Israel.”

    “Trumka was elected President of the national AFL-CIO in September of this year. The AFL-CIO is composed of 57 national and international labor unions, represents 11.5 million members.

    “He noted that “the Jewish community here – and around the world – has never had a stronger ally than the AFL-CIO,” adding that “so long as I’m president, you will never have a stronger ally than the AFL-CIO!”

    Under current federal laws, roughly nine million private-sector employees already are compelled to allow a particular union monopoly to negotiate their pay, benefits and working conditions.

    For as long as they keep their jobs, employees who would prefer to bargain for themselves or be represented by another union have no say as individuals in how they will be represented. And, mandatory paycheck deductions are included as non-tax exempt union dues for political activy and lobbying by the monopoly unions.

    Moreover, labor unions overwhelming support politically the Democrats in pushing such things as abortion, gay rights, etc, not to mention wholesale support of Israhell.

    These issues have nothing to do with employment in the immediate workplace, wages and working conditions, yet they are abhorrent to a conservative and Christian conscience. Such an employee is caught on the horns of a dilemma in a monopoly union state.

    The honest Christians and other morally upright workers in American Labor are constantly under the watchful eye and bootheel of the Jew and the willing gentile labor bosses for the sake of their own material and political power and gain.

    We would be well advised to heed these words of La Rouchefoucauld:

    “We are eager to find a culprit, and loath to give ourselves the trouble of examining the crime.”

    Excerpts copied from powerlineblog.com “The Left’s War on the Kochs” (2/23) by John Hinderaker about the growing urban legend of “union showdown” in Wisconsin that a reporter attributed to a Tim Phillips, head of Americans For Prosperity, as was originally published in the Jew York Times:

    …A story in the New York Times by Eric Lipton carries one curious fact: he interviewed Tim Phillips, who heads Americans For Prosperity, a group that has tens of thousands of donors nationwide but also receives funding from the Kochs.

    Lipton quoted Phillips more than once; those quotes were inoffensive. There was just one inflammatory statement that Lipton ATTRIBUTED [emph Kj] to Phillips. What was interesting was that Lipton didn’t actually tell us what Phillips said; note the absence of quotation marks:

    **Even before the new governor was sworn in last month, executives from the Koch-backed group had worked behind the scenes to try to encourage a union showdown, Mr. Phillips said in an interview on Monday.**

    Phillips vehemently denies saying any such thing. Given that Lipton paraphrased Phillips rather than quoting him, any curious reader would wonder: what did Phillips actually say?

    [There is now a continuing saga of Hinderraker’s requests to get this reporter Lipton to provide some kind of recorded or written evidence of the interview for his attributed statement of Phillips. He has so far not responded to anyone.]

    Simply because they are rich — their company is one of the best-run and most successful in the world — and fiscal conservatives, and non-union. The Koch brothers employee about 3,000 people in Wisconsin in the private sector with seven local businesses.

    [As the campaign money is listed as coming from the Koch Brothers PAC, it is not personal money, but from employee and retiree contributors in Wisconsin.]

    The Left is trying to drive the Koch Brothers out of politics, especially Wisconsin politics, and, more important, to deter any other people of means from daring to support conservative politicians or causes.
    ~~~

    From same powerlineblog.com article excerpt:

    A more serious problem with Think Progress’s commentary on events in Wisconsin was pointed out by Daniel Halper in the Weekly Standard:

    [T]he Center for American Progress goes on … to indict pretty much every major organization, company, or individual who ever gave to Walker — and even some of the organizations that gave to organizations that supported Walker. …

    But there is, oddly, at least one major corporate donor to the Walker for governor campaign that the Center for American Progress has given a pass.

    Walmart, one of only two corporations to fall in the top ten list of donors to Walker’s campaign, has never been mentioned in connection with Walker by the intrepid Googlers at the Center for American Progress. Not even once.

    Coincidentally, Walmart has been, and by every indication continues to be, a major donor to … the Center for American Progress. John Hinderaker notes this connection in his own post at Powerline, picking apart the shameless hypocrisy of the corporate-funded Center for American Progress’s attacks on corporate money in politics.

    You’d think Walmart, with its long record of hostility to unions, (which just maybe has something to do with the million-plus jobs the company has created), would be a top target for the Wisconsin Left.

    [Further, this tacitly union hands-off to any approach to Walmart employees about the possibility of union organizing, occurs no doubt with a nudge/wink from the “Green Jobs” movement in Labor, and Walmart promotes being “Green.”]

    Understand, the Left has nothing against rich people participating in politics. Most rich people who are politically active are liberals, and the Democratic Party gets much more of its support from the wealthy than the GOP.

    George Soros is only the most famous of a battalion of sugar daddies who fund every left-wing cause. But the Left wants a monopoly.

    They want wealthy people to be barred from political participation unless they toe the liberal line. Hence their increasingly vicious attacks on the Koch brothers; they are trying to make an example of them.

    How not to use quotation marks:

    The concerns the so-called “union showdown” from Lipton’s Jew York TImes article non-quote which is NOT a direct quote but was an opinion of the reporter/blogger.

    Words of Wisdom,

    What is going on in Wisconsin is a Socialist revolutionary challenge to States’ Sovereignity (Government in our constitutional democratic representative system) derived from Popular Sovereignity (i.e. the Taxed Enough Already We The People).

    We aren’t dealing with a constitutional right to “collective bargaining,” because there is none, but legislated rights, either federal or state.

    The issue of public sector “collective bargaining” does fall to the sovereign States’ legislative rights as republics reserved to them by the Constitution, and the local legislative rights (county, municipal, village) in turn reserved to them by the respective State Consititutions.

    I said before that there is a difference between private sector unionization and collective bargaining, which is economic, and public sector unions and collective bargaining, which is a strange hybrid from the 50s and ’60s, and is always political in that it impacts the public interests.

    Like a swinging pendulum, public sector “collective bargaining” is an inverted companion of sorts to the idea of the quasi-fascist corporate and distorted hybrid “military-industrial complex” and also controlling government through economics, ie. capitalism.

    This link is an excellent read from the Public Service Research Foundation, covers constitutional issues, and describes the difference between the public sector, which is governmental and monopolistic, and the private sector.

    It clearly spells out not just what Walker and the new Wisconsin legislature are preparing to do. But this is going on all over the place in various states as citizen tax-payer reforms solely dedicated to the Public Interest begins to ramp up, like in New Jersey. Maybe even here in my state of California.

    This is an excellent read to sort out the various theories and technical issues and a good site.

    PSRF was “founded by Carol Applegate, a Michigan public school teacher, who, after being a union member for twenty years, realized that what her union, the Michigan Education Association-National Education Association, was doing wasn’t in the interests of the students, the teachers or the general public.

    “Due to that influence and because such a great percent of state and local public expenditures are in the area of public education and because public education is one of the most heavily unionized elements of the public sector, unionism in education, particularly teacher unionism, is of special concern to the Public Service Research Foundation.”

    ************

    W.O.W., I assume that you have heard of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. For your information, the Fourteenth Amendment reads as follows:

    Section 1.
    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    Now, W.O.W., “the equal protection of the laws” applies to the National Labor Relations Act, which made it illegal for employers to deny unions representing their employees the right to engage in collective bargaining.

    In 1962, President John F. Kennedy issued an executive order to grant all federal government employees the right to unionize and collectively bargain with departments and agencies.

    http://www.aolnews.com/2011/02/18/collective-bargaining-rights-a-brief-history-of-the-key-issue-i/

    You will say that Governor Walker is not denying unions the right of collective bargaining. But by limiting that bargaining power to wages only, and denying union workers the right to bargain, i.e., negotiate to improve their working conditions, health benefits and pensions, Walker is certainly denying workers their right to collectively bargain.

    Also for your information, W.O.W., a majority of states – a total of 29 – allow public employees to collectively bargain. Among these states are Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming, which are certainly no strongholds of liberalism.

    North Carolina State University researchers have shown that strong public employee unions strengthen government performance and efficiency – principally by raising worker satisfaction with their jobs and thereby reducing employee turnover.

    According to research, strong public employee unions make for a workforce that is, on the whole, happier, more productive, more experienced, more stable, and more efficient.

    http://nchope.org/adobe/unionsimpact.pdf

    According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), “Work is more than a way to make a living; it is a form of participation in God’s act of creation. If the dignity of work is to be protected, then the basic rights of workers, owners, and others must be respected—the right to productive work, to decent and fair wages, to organize and choose to join a union, to economic initiative, and to ownership of private property.”

    http://www.catholicchurchnh.org/public-issues/public-policy/social-justice/labor-unions-and-just-wage/

    Now, W.O.W., with regard to your last sentence:

    “Any Jew that supports labor unions has not given up on Jewry!!! I will say that as loud as I can!”

    I assume that statement is aimed at me personally. So, for your information, I am a FORMER JEW WHO HAS GIVEN UP ON JEWRY. I am a baptized Christian and a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. AND I SUPPORT UNIONS WHEN THEY ARE ENGAGED IN LAWFUL COLLECTIVE BARGAINING.

    It is you, W.O.W., who is disregarding the words of our Lord:

    Matthew 25:40 Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me! (Who are “the least of these my brethren”? Certainly not rich Jew-millionaires and billionaires and toady politicians. No, they are the workers who are seeking decent working conditions through lawful negotiations with their employers.)

    Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. (And who is wealthy, the workers or the rich corporate executives and lobbyists, mostly Jews, who buy their influence with politicians?)

    Mark 4:18-19 And others are the ones on whom seed was sown among the thorns; these are the ones who have heard the word, but the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.

    Matthew 19:24 “Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” (Also Mark 10:25; Luke 18:25)

    If Jesus Christ were to return today, He would be in Madison, Wisconsin, supporting the union workers in their fight against the lies and deceit of Governor Walker and the anti-working people Repugnicants.

    So, W.O.W. while you are shouting at the top of your voice about the labor unions and the wicked Jews who support them, I will leave you with this quote from Proverbs 4:7:

    “Leave the presence of a fool, Or you will not discern words of knowledge.”

    Anything the Federal Government legislates has to have authority from the US Constitution. If not, then it is a state issue.

    Wisconsin’s state government has the ability to do with labor unions as they please.

    Be very careful everyone how you use the word “rights”! There is no such thing as legislative rights.

    In America, the only “rights” we have we believe come from God and nowhere else.

    The Jewish Labor Committee should be federally registered as a foreign agent of Israel.

    Along with ongoing exploitation of Black American politicians and labor, now Jews have expanded soft Zionist colonialism through exploitation of domestic and foreign ethnic and minority groups, especially Middle Eastern, through globalizing labor and trade unions in collaboration with or organized by the Jewish Labor Committee.

    Philadelphia-area Labor Leaders Meet to Support Israel

    As part of an effort to recognize the recent national labor leadership elections in Pittsburgh, celebrate the Jewish New Year, and stand in support of the state and people of Israel, thirty Philadelphia-area labor, government, and community leaders gathered at the Israeli Consulate in Philadelphia on Thursday, September 24, [2009] to honor the relationship between the U.S. and Israeli labor movements.

    Sharing hosting duties were Patrick Eiding [Black], President of the Philadelphia Council AFL-CIO, along with Consul General Daniel Kutner [Israeli Jew]; the event was MC’ed by Deputy Consul General Raslan Abu Rukun [Israeli Druze].

    Patrick Eiding related the close organizational and personal relationships between Philadelphia labor, the local Jewish community and the ISRAELI TRADE UNION MOVEMENT.

    Edward F. Mooney [White], Vice President of District 13, Communications Workers of America (CWA), and Bernard Fisher [Black], Past President of the local Coalition of Black Trade Unionists discussed their participation in a July 2007 labor leaders’ study trip to Israel.

    Not present was Larry Cohen [Jew], CWA President

    Among the labor, community and government leaders in attendance, in addition to those mentioned, were local Philadelphia and state union presidents:

    Jerry T. Jordan [Black], President, Philadelphia Federation of Teachers [PFT], AFT Local 3;

    Ted Kirsch [Jew], President, American Federation of Teachers Pennsylvania (AFTPA);

    From radioislam.org: Jewish/Israeli Exploitation of Black Politicians

    Jewish/Israeli influence in the Black community was also noted by the Jerusalem [sic] Post in 1996, in a piece headlined “The Israeli “Secret” Diplomacy Inside the Afro-American Community.” As the Post observed:

    “There are 100 Black colleges and universities in this country but only 41 are members of the United Negro College Fund presided over by William H. Gray, III, the ex-congressman. And he is the ’secret weapon’ of Israel … Black scholars, intellectuals and students are the new Israeli target group.”

    Softening African-Americans to Israeli propaganda is expedited by “Israel Cultural Days” at Black American colleges, visits by Ethiopian Jews (who, never stated, face, as Blacks, omnipresent racism in Israel: see Israel chapter), and vacations to Israel for seven presidents of African-American colleges to build “a new bridge between the academic community in Israel and the black academic community in this country.” [NAHSHON, G., 3-96]

    *****************

    The above statements show not only your ignorance but also your intemperance.

    When you say I am “about 98% there” in terms of being a Christian, your intemperance is showing.

    Fortunately, I do not have to rely on your judgment as to how good a Christian I am, or how closely I come to the principles laid down by our Lord Jesus Christ. That is strictly up to God, and I am content to leave it in His hands.

    When you say “Why do you think this [National Labor Relations] will never ever go to the US Supreme Court? BECAUSE ITS NOT A FEDERAL ISSUE!!!,” your ignorance is there for all to see.

    In fact, it has already gone to the Supreme Court, in a case decided 74 years ago: National Labor Relations Board v. Jones & Laughlin Steel Corporation, 301 U.S. 1 (1937). In that decision, the Supreme Court held that employees have a fundamental right to organize and select representatives of their own choosing for collective bargaining.

    I won’t bore you by quoting the relevant part of the decision, since it’s probably beyond your ability to comprehend. If you want to look it up, it’s on Page 33 of the decision.

    http://supreme.justia.com/us/301/1/case.html

    W.O.W., the Constitution is written in very broad and general terms. That is why we have courts, and ultimately the Supreme Court, to decide on how the Constitution should be interpreted.

    Many modern concepts are not mentioned in the Constitution, but they are enshrined in U.S. law. Take, for example, the right to privacy.

    The Constitution does not specifically mention a right to privacy. However, Supreme Court decisions over the years have established that the right to privacy is a basic human right, and as such is protected by virtue of the 9th Amendment.

    The right to privacy has come to the public’s attention via several controversial Supreme Court rulings, including several dealing with contraception (the Griswold and Eisenstadt cases), interracial marriage (the Loving case), and abortion (the well-known Roe v Wade case).

    In addition, it is said that a right to privacy is inherent in many of the amendments in the Bill of Rights, such as the 3rd, the 4th’s search and seizure limits, and the 5th’s self-incrimination limit.

    (The above was not written by me; it was written by Steve Mount, who maintains a Web site called USConstitution.net.)

    http://www.usconstitution.net/constnot.html#privacy

    Now, as to your question, “Exactly what law school did you graduate from that would teach you such nonsense?”

    I did not attend or graduate from law school, and I am not a lawyer. (Neither are you.)

    However, I can read and I can THINK, which is apparently beyond your ability.

    Greetings in the Lord, Roy,

    Then don’t read them.

    See my name? Then feel free to move right on by. No headaches, no heartburn.

    Greetings in the Lord, Glory B

    Small correction in what you wrote. We are discussing apples (private - ‘civil rights -) and oranges (public - ‘civil service’).

    While the National Labor Relations Act of 1935 extended the right to collectively bargain to private sector employees, it did NOT include such rights for public sector employees or for farm workers at the time.

    You wrote: “National Labor Relations Board v. Jones & Laughlin Steel Corporation, 301 U.S. 1 (1937). In that decision, the Supreme Court held that employees have a fundamental right to organize and select representatives of their own choosing for collective bargaining.”

    This was a civil rights suit by the NLRB on behalf of private sector workers and their organizing and collective bargaining rights guaranteed by the NLRA violated by their employer, a private corporation, not public sector workers in grievance against government.

    Public employees fall under the Civil Service category, and are covered under the various enactments of civil-service laws dating back to the late 1800s, occupational and safety laws, and administrative due process policy and procedures to address labor, employment, disciplinary actions, grievances and numerous working conditions in government.

    Moreover, Kennedy’s original executive order authorizing collective bargaining by government unions was for federal employees only. It had no application to state or local employees at the time, although state and local governments could later adopt it as a model for their own use for public sector employee bargaining units who wished to organize as well.

    Even without public sector collective bargaining at all, apart from wages and benefits, government workers would still benefit from major far-reaching protections under now existing civil-service statutes — many more protections than most private-sector workers enjoy, even unionized ones.

    And public sector workers do retain their full constitutional rights as citizens to freely associate or not (fraternities, societies, associations minus the direct collective bargaining capacity), participate in the political process, and petition the government for changes in policy in the common Public Interest as well.

    However, states and local governments through legislation, MAY extend such rights to public employees within the affected states or municipalities. Kennedy granted the right of public collective bargaining for federal employees, but that was not binding at the state or local level.

    Many states, but not all, have legislatively granted the privilege (”right”) of collective bargaining to some or all public employees in one of two ways. But, it is a limited right, and what the ‘We The People’ and government granteth, ‘We The People’ and the government can (theoretically) take away or modify.

    As a legislated “right” of a particular state or local jurisdiction, the conditions of public sector collective bargaining by PUBLIC SERVANTS can be modified effective the next contract term through legitimate government and/or citizen political and civil processes, either legislative, executive, or popular — as in referendums and initiatives.

    However, no matter what, a Collective Bargaining Agreement is the result of negotiations between an employer and an employee organization.

    It sets out the conditions of employment (wages, hours, benefits, etc.) and ways to settle disputes arising during the term of the contract. Collective bargaining agreements usually run for a definite period–one, two or three years as they are pegged to budgets.

    It is usually synonymous with Memorandum of Understanding/Agreement or MOU/MOA, and that is usually the form of contract between government and the public sector employee unions, as well as with various other entities.

    In the negotiated MOU government officials have listed Management’s Rights.

    These are certain rights that government as “management” maintains as fundamental to the ability to manage and operate the organization. They are not required, negotiable subjects of collective bargaining. These rights are often expressly reserved to management in the management’s rights clause of the bargaining agreement.

    They include the reserved right to hire, promote, suspend or discharge employees; to direct the work of employees; and to establish operating policies, and other such conditions.

    The MOU is a term contract, enforceable only for a set limit of time. It is usual and customary practice that when the new MOU is delayed for some reason past the start of the new fiscal cycle, which is keyed to the start of a FY, then operations continue as an indefinite extension of the expired contract until the new one is settled.

    The Wisconsin state employees are still currently running on an extensions of the MOU 2007-2009, which expired June 30, 2009.

    Except for an MOU for one collective bargaining unit which was approved, the 2009-2011 (please not the date, it should have been in place July 1, 2009) collective bargaining agreements were NOT approved by the Democrat-controlled legislature in the lame duck session on December 15, 2010.

    Walker assumed office on January 3, 2011.

    Thanks to the phenomenal procrastination of the Democrat Doyle and the Democrat ruled legislature for at least 15 months, they tried to rush these new agreements through at the last minute.

    What the Democrats tried to jam through, and failed by one Democrat senator’s vote with moral scruples, was a collective bargaining agreement by the unions involving the surrender of government’s reserved Managerial Rights.

    Doyle conceded certain ‘reserve management rights’ to the unions in the failed contracts that do have direct fiscal impact such as not allowing management to schedule workers based on operational needs and requiring notice and approval by the union prior to scheduling changes.

    Walker is also trying to limit the unions’ abilities to negotiate operational work rules that Doyle had conceded to – and this would be crucial when it comes to the more efficient operation of government in a difficult time.

    Possible reduction of work hours and furloughs based on budget pressures and workload requirements to avoid lay-offs would be opposed by the unions, as they did when Walker was a county executive.

    The bargaining agreement also prohibited management to simply EXPLORE privitization of functions that could save taxpayers money.

    The second issue from long-standing collective bargaining overall is Paid-Time Off for Union Activities. Employees from the various bargaining units receive salary and benefits from the state for doing union business.

    Some employees are on permanent full-time release for union business, not government business, and are being paid by the state to participate in union activities such as collective bargaining.

    If a teacher is doing regular full-time union business, which is, by the way, a private non-profit corporation business, and not the government specified job they were originally hired for (which is to teach children), then the union should be paying those salaries and benefits out of its own membership dues, not the taxpayer via state or local governments.

    That doesn’t even take into consideration the municipalities and school districts within Milwaukee County as well which have to contend with this with their own local government union shops.

    These MOUs for 2009-2011, if they had been effectively passed by both the Wisconsin Assembly and Senate in December, would have still expired June 30, 2011, less than six months from now, way out of synch with the upcoming new budget for 2011-2013.

    This is the reason Walker gave the 30 day notice that the 2007-2009 extension was ending on March 13.

    The Democrat Doyle Administration sat on them for a year and a half.

    One question that has been carefully avoided by the press is this - Why does Walker want to take monopoly collective bargaining away from the public sector unions and make Wisconsin a ‘Right to Work’ state free of monopoly unionism which is the backbone of the Democrat party and liberal agenda whose intended goal is to DICTATE public policy?

    Walker’s budget and subsequent MOUs pegged to it would also require unions to hold an annual secret-ballot vote of confidence, eliminate mandatory union membership by allowing workers to quit their unions without being fired, and stop the practice of having taxpayers subsidize the collection of union dues through government payrolls.

    That is really the heart of the whole story and it’s the part that the complicit liberal Jew-owned press won’t discuss, or the Democrats either.

    The answer is that when a public sector union, as a private non-profit organization, can use their mandatory union dues collected at no cost to them whatsover to select who it is they are going to be bargaining with through politics, the result is a conspiracy against the public.

    FDR and Walker, as well as several states now including New Jersey, New York, and California, are on the same page regarding the impact of the government unions.

    Except Walker is something of a liberal softie compared to FDR in this respect.

    Walker is peaceable with bargaining rights for government unions, but he wants changes for the good of the people of Wisconsin to restore some fiscal sanity.

    FDR would have simply fired everyone if they hadn’t come to their senses, and if federal workers went on strike, he would have called in the army to settle the problem.

    Letter on the Resolution of Federation of Federal Employees Against Strikes in Federal Service August 16, 1937, Roosevelt explains that, yes, public sector employees do have a right to organize, but there are restrictions (excerpt):

    “The desire of Government employees for fair and adequate pay, reasonable hours of work, safe and suitable working conditions, development of opportunities for advancement, facilities for fair and impartial consideration and review of grievances, and other objectives of a proper employee relations policy, is basically no different from that of employees in private industry.

    “Organization on their part to present their views on such matters is both natural and logical, but meticulous attention should be paid to the special relationships and obligations of public servants to the public itself and to the Government.

    “All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service. It has its distinct and insurmountable limitations when applied to public personnel management.

    “The very nature and purposes of Government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer in mutual discussions with Government employee organizations.

    “The employer is the whole people, who speak by means of laws enacted by their representatives in Congress. Accordingly, administrative officials and employees alike are governed and guided, and in many instances restricted, by laws which establish policies, procedures, or rules in personnel matters.

    “Particularly, I want to emphasize my conviction that militant tactics have no place in the functions of any organization of Government employees.

    “Upon employees in the Federal service rests the obligation to serve the whole people, whose interests and welfare require orderliness and continuity in the conduct of Government activities.

    “This obligation is paramount. Since their own services have to do with the functioning of the Government, a strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government until their demands are satisfied.

    “Such action, looking toward the paralysis of Government by those who have sworn to support it, is unthinkable and intolerable.

    “It is, therefore, with a feeling of gratification that I have noted in the constitution of the National Federation of Federal Employees the provision that “under no circumstances shall this Federation engage in or support strikes against the United States Government.”
    ~~~

    The federal government, and Virtually all states, in terms of collective bargaining statutes outlawed public sector strikes. The last paragraph has to do with the constitution and bylaws of the organization of the NFFE at the time, not the government.

    Roosevelt wasn’t alone. Even among Democrats through the ’50s the opinion was that unions didn’t belong in government work, and even the unions said so.

    To the extent that people thought about it, most politicians, labor leaders, economists, and judges opposed collective bargaining in the public sector.

    Things started changing when, in 1959, Wisconsin’s then-Gov. Gaylord Nelson signed collective bargaining into law for state workers. Other states followed, and gradually, municipal workers and teachers were unionized, too.

    Frank Zeidler, Milwaukee’s mayor in the 1950s and the last card-carrying Socialist to head a major US city, steadfastly supported labor, but he saw the storm clouds on the horizon.

    In 1969, this ‘progressive’ icon wrote that rise of unions in government work put a competing power in charge of public business next to elected officials. Government unions “can mean considerable loss of control over the budget, and hence over tax rates,” he warned.

    There was “a revolutionary principle rather quietly at work in American government,” he wrote. Rather prophetic.

    Courts across the nation also generally held that collective bargaining by government workers should be forbidden on the legal grounds of sovereign immunity and unconstitutional delegation of government powers.

    In 1943, a New York Supreme Court judge held:

    “To tolerate or recognize any combination of civil service employees of the government as a labor organization or union is not only incompatible with the spirit of democracy, but inconsistent with every principle upon which our government is founded.

    “Nothing is more dangerous to public welfare than to admit that hired servants of the State can dictate to the government the hours, the wages and conditions under which they will carry on essential services vital to the welfare, safety, and security of the citizen.

    “To admit as true that government employees have power to halt or check the functions of government unless their demands are satisfied, is to transfer to them all legislative, executive and judicial power. Nothing would be more ridiculous.”

    The very nature of many essential public services — such as policing the streets, paramedic responses, and putting out fires — gives government a monopoly or near monopoly; striking public employees therefore hold the public hostage.

    As long-time New York Times labor reporter A. H. Raskin wrote in 1968: “The community cannot tolerate the notion that it is defenseless at the hands of organized workers to whom it has entrusted responsibility for essential services.”

    Another important common objection to collective bargaining with public-employee unions was that it would mean taking some of the decision-making authority over government functions away from the people’s elected representatives and transferring it to unelected union officials, with whom the public had vested no such authority.

    In this view, constitutional sovereignity of democracy and ‘We The People’ would be compromised when elected officials began sharing with union leaders the managerial power to determine government employees’ wages, benefits, and working conditions.

    Furthermore, collectively bargained work rules could alter what public servants did day to day in ways not condoned by either elected officials or the voting public.

    However, states, through legislation, MAY extend such rights to public employees within the affected states. Many states, but not all, have legislatively granted the right to collective bargaining to some or all public employees. But, it is a limited right, in that striking is outlawed, and what We The People and government granteth, We The People and the government can take away if it is in the public interest.

    As a legislated “contract right,” the privilege of public sector collective bargaining by PUBLIC SERVANTS is technically conditional on the terms stipulated in each MOU, and also depends on whether the State itself has enacted collective bargaining laws and to what degree.

    If it serves the public interest to do so, the laws and terms public sector collective bargaining as a limited civil service right are conditional and modifiable through legitimate government and/or citizen political and civil processes, either legislative, executive, or popular — as in referendums and initiatives.

    One question that has been carefully avoided by the press is this -

    Why does Walker want to take monopoly collective bargaining away from the public sector unions and make Wisconsin a ‘Right to Work’ state, which would still assure collective bargaining, free of monopoly unionism whose intended goal is to DICTATE public policy to the rest of the public?

    That is really the heart of the whole story in Wisconsin and it’s the part that the complicit liberal Jew-owned press won’t discuss, or the Democrats either.

    The answer is that when a public sector union can use their union dues to select who it is they are going to be bargaining with, the essence of government corruption, the result is a conspiracy against the public.

    Frank Zeidler was spot on the money about the rise of unions in government work putting in place a competing power in charge of public business next to elected officials, and that government unions “can mean considerable loss of control over the budget, and hence over tax rates” and also about “a revolutionary principle rather quietly at work in American government.”

    We saw that “revolutionary principle” last week in Madison, WI once the union Alynskiite drum-beaters got going, especially from the Socialist International radicals in the teachers union (WEAC). What worked them up was the money they’d concede out of their own pockets, they said.

    Wrong, what worked them up into a hissy fit was about Walker’s curbing the government unions’ accumulated political power through monopoly collective bargaining enough to take over aspects of government.

    Labor unions are the backbone of the Democratic Party.

    Wisconsin is a high-tax state that consistently chases away job providers with high taxes on personal income, corporate income, and property. For eight years, the Democrats were in control, and it was nothing but tax and spend.

    When those businesses take flight, so do the payroll taxes, sales taxes, and other local taxes regardless of business profitability.

    I read that something like $1.6 billion in personal and business wealth made flight from just five southern Wisconsin counties just from businesses and people transplanting to other states, notably Alabama.

    Not only did the businesses move, so did those employees. The Harley-Davidson plant was on the edge of folding up shop and moving, things are that bad.

    There were 5.6 million people in Wisconsin in 2009.

    And when I mean wealth, I mean such things as checking and savings accounts went out of state with them, along with larger personal and business properties and holdings, business property taxes as well as homeowner’s property taxes and so forth.

    So did the local and state communications taxes from such things as telephone and internet service providers, cable, and wireless services which are paid by…businesses and employees.

    One of the openly recommended readings for labor radicals, especially in public sector unions, particularly the NEA and the interlocking state-level Wisconsin Education Association Council, and other teachers’ unions (and in some other public sector unions) is Alynski’s ‘Rules for Radicals.’

    As a Christian and as a one-time short-time retail clerk union member and as an irregular meager donor to this wonderful website of brother Nathanael,

    First, I want to thank one-n-all for their unspoken dedication to GOODNESS-TRUTH-BEAUTY, LOVE-GRACE-MERCY.

    Second, from reading every word in this post and from reading what is there in between the lines, from watching many you-tube videos and some mainstream media of and about the rally and what may or may not be going on behind the scenes and why, here is what I see:

    1) The global (Zionist) elite, who with their unearned wealth, can and have been able to control both sides of anything, have this time lost control of the reins.

    2) It is so wonderfully convoluted and out of their control that they will not be able to grab the reins again nor undo the noose they have now tied around their own necks without exposing their insidiousness more and more.

    3) This is much more than anything just political.

    4) This is it. The hearts and minds of the people, not just here but worldwide, are opening up more and more to what? To Goodness-Truth-Beauty. To Love-Grace-Mercy. That is, to
    Christ consciousness. to CHRIST. this is what I see. “Sanctify yourself and you will sanctify society” — Saint Francis of Assis”

    Matthew:

    5:1 - When Jesus saw the vast crowds he went up the hill-side and after he had sat down his disciples came to him.

    5:2-12 - Then he began his teaching by saying to them, “How happy are the humble-minded, for the kingdom of Heaven is theirs! How happy are those who know what sorrow means for they will be given courage and comfort! Happy are those who claim nothing, for the whole earth will belong to them!

    “Happy are those who are hungry and thirsty for goodness, for they will be fully satisfied! Happy are the merciful, for they will have mercy shown to them! Happy are the utterly sincere, for they will see God! Happy are those who make peace, for they will be sons of God!

    “Happy are those who have suffered persecution for the cause of goodness, for the kingdom of Heaven is theirs! And what happiness will be yours when people blame you and ill-treat you and say all kinds of slanderous things against you for my sake!”

    “Be glad then, yes, be tremendously glad - for your reward in Heaven is magnificent. They persecuted the prophets before your time in exactly the same way.

    5:13 - “You are the earth’s salt. But if the salt should become tasteless, what can make it salt again? It is completely useless and can only be thrown out of doors and stamped under foot.”

    5:14-15 - “You are the world’s light - it is impossible to hide a town built on the top of a hill. Men do not light a lamp and put it under a bucket. They put it on a lamp-stand and it gives light for everybody in the house.

    5:16 - “Let your light shine like that in the sight of men. Let them see the good things you do and praise your Father in Heaven.”

    1 Corinthians:

    13:1-3 - If I speak with the eloquence of men and of angels, but have no love, I become no more than blaring brass or crashing cymbal.

    If I have the gift of foretelling the future and hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but the very secrets of God, and if I also have that absolute faith which can move mountains, but have no love, I amount to nothing at all. If I dispose of all that I possess, yes, even if I give my own body to be burned, but have no love, I achieve precisely nothing.

    13:4 - This love of which I speak is slow to lose patience - it looks for a way of being constructive. It is not possessive: it is neither anxious to impress nor does it cherish inflated ideas of its own importance.

    13:5-6 - Love has good manners and does not pursue selfish advantage. It is not touchy. It does not keep account of evil or gloat over the wickedness of other people. On the contrary, it is glad with all good men when truth prevails.

    13:7-8a - Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. It is, in fact, the one thing that still stands when all else has fallen.

    All gifts except love will be superseded one day

    13:8b-10 - For if there are prophecies they will be fulfilled and done with, if there are “tongues” the need for them will disappear, if there is knowledge it will be swallowed up in truth. For our knowledge is always incomplete and our prophecy is always incomplete, and when the complete comes, that is the end of the incomplete.

    13:11 - When I was a little child I talked and felt and thought like a little child. Now that I am a man my childish speech and feeling and thought have no further significance for me.

    13:12 - At present we are men looking at puzzling reflections in a mirror. The time will come when we shall see reality whole and face to face! At present all I know is a little fraction of the truth, but the time will come when I shall know it as fully as God now knows me!

    13:13 - In this life we have three great lasting qualities - faith, hope and love. But the greatest of them is love.
