SEIU Thugs Plan A Revolution Against America/Are the Purple Thugs Coming to Your City?

If you were thinking that the protests in Madison, Wisconsin just developed organically, think again. There is a well coordinated machine operating in the background, handling details like sign printing, busing folks to and from the protest, as well as scheduling groups of various members to appear on a rotating basis. They have also developed a game plan for the week ahead, not just in Wisconsin but at state capitals across the country.

The country’s second largest labor union, SEIU is helping the Wisconsin teachers as well as assisting in revving up potential protesters around the country. This list was copied from their web page just today;

War hero heckled and jeered at Columbia University

Three years ago this month, U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Anthony Maschek was shot eleven times during a firefight in northern Iraq. Amazingly Sgt. Maschek survived his wounds and after two years of rehabilitation and recovery at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C., the decorated war hero enrolled at Columbia University.

This past week during a town-hall meeting at Barack Obama’s alma mater which was held to discuss the return of ROTC to the campus, the war hero found himself under fire once again.

According to the New York Post, Sgt. Maschek, the assembled students gave the hero a disrespectful reception which included shouts of “racist!” and other taunts in addition to a wave of boos, hissing and laughter during his speech.

Maschek, 28. Had bravely stepped up to the mike Tuesday at the meeting to issue a challenge to fellow students on their perceptions of the military.

“It doesn’t matter how you feel about the war. It doesn’t matter how you feel about fighting,” said Maschek. “There are bad people out there plotting to kill you.”


Maschek, who is studying economics, miraculously survived the insurgent attack in Kirkuk. In the hail of gun fire, he broke both legs and suffered wounds to his abdomen, arm and chest.

He enrolled last August at the Ivy League school, where an increasingly ugly battle is unfolding over the 42-year military ban there.

When the matter of allowing ROTC back on campus was last debated in 2005, the point of contention was the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell policy.” After Mr. Obama and the lame duck legislature orchestrated the repeal of the previous policy, it was felt that the major obstacle for the return of the military to campus had been removed. Of course, in the extreme leftist culture that dominates the once elite Ivy League schools, the anti-military fervor continues unabated as they now embrace the exclusion of transgendered service members as their latest cause.

The ROTC ban dates back to the violent protests of the Viet Nam era when students like Hillary Rodham, Bill Clinton, Bill Ayers and their comrades organized their fellow travelers in revolutionary fervor which often turned violent. Today’s students have been indoctrinated by their leftist educators and imbued with their radical anti-American vision which was clearly evident in their disrespectful treatment of Sgt. Maschek.

If only these youngsters had an appreciation for the historic role of our military in obtaining, securing and maintaining the very freedoms which they now enjoy they could appreciate the sacrifices of their fellow Americans like Sgt. Anthony Maschek and treat them accordingly.

Californians Attack Journalists

An angry mob attacked a reporter and a photojournalist Sunday, but it wasn’t in the Middle East, it was in California.

The journalists were hit and pushed by family and friends of a young man who had been gunned down the night before outside an International House of Pancakes restaurant in Sacramento.

FOX 40 News reporter John Lobertini and his cameraperson, Rebecca Little, were assaulted after approaching a group of people standing near a memorial for 27-year-old Chester Jackson set up on the sidewalk outside the restaurant.

“This is one of the hazards of the business, but I’ve gotta tell you we didn’t expect what we encountered here,” Lobertini said during his broadcast after the attack.

Several local news outlets were present at the time and captured the incident on video from different points of view.

In the footage, Lobertini can be seen approaching a handful of people standing by the memorial as Little recorded the encounter. A woman in glasses and a hoodie quickly begins yelling at the journalists, the video shows, as another in a white cap calmly asks the reporters to “just back off.”

Within moments, however, several people approach from further down the sidewalk. A man in a purple t-shirt shoves Little’s camera away; then a woman in a white button-down sweater is seen in the video screaming at the photojournalist. Little is forced backwards as the woman stomps towards her.

Under Obama, Gas Prices Continue to Rise

Gasoline prices have jumped another nickel, to 55 cents a gallon more than a year ago, according to a study published Sunday.

The average price for a gallon of regular is $3.18, the Lundberg Survey found. That’s up 5 cents from two weeks ago, publisher Trilby Lundberg said.

“That is a significant bite for motorists considering the continued deep unemployment,” Lundberg said.

And it comes amid a “very wide and deep glut of gasoline supply,” she added.

The spike is partly due to events in the Middle East and north Africa, Lundberg said.

The most common benchmark for crude oil is West Texas Intermediate on the futures market. That crude is “glutted, in serious oversupply,” she said. “But U.S. refiners use many other crudes, some of which have been jumping on Middle East tensions.”

The gasoline glut has helped prevent prices from rising even more, she said.

Gas prices may rise another nickel or dime in the coming weeks, Lundberg said. “It would of course be far more if Middle East problems augmented and caused oil prices to skyrocket,” she said.

Prices at the pump have risen 49 cents a gallon since late September.

The Lundberg Survey tallies average gas prices at thousands of gas stations nationwide.

Here are the latest average prices in some U.S. cities:

-Billings, Montana – $2.95

-San Francisco – $3.54

-Houston – $2.98

-St. Louis – $2.99

-Tulsa, Oklahoma – $3.01

-Baltimore – $3.09

-Atlanta – $3.11

-Boston – $3.21

-Las Vegas – $3.20

-Minneapolis – $3.18

Here Comes: “Right to Work”

The standoff in Wisconsin over the benefits and rights of public employees could for the first time in decades spur changes across the country over so-called “right-to-work” laws — or laws that prohibit unions from forcing workers to join.

For years, the country has been split practically 50-50 between states that allow employees to decide whether to join a union and states that allow unions to require membership. Most southern and central Midwestern states are right-to-work states, while the West Coast, New England and the northern Midwest comprise what critics call “forced-unionism” states.

Along with requiring public employees to contribute more to pensions and health care coverage, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker wants to put his state in the right-to-work column. His proposals have touched off an epic battle in Madison between pro-labor Democrats and Republicans who say they’re just trying to balance the budget.

And now that battle is spreading.

Throngs of union members and supporters gathered in Indianapolis Monday for a protest against a proposed bill in the Indiana House that would restrict collective bargaining rights and make it a misdemeanor to require any employee to join or pay dues to a union.

Republican state Rep. Jerry Torr, the bill’s author, described his proposal as a tool to attract business to Indiana. He told Fox59 in Indianapolis that prospective employers are avoiding the state because they’re worried about its work rules.

Libyan Muslim leaders order followers to rebel

A coalition of Libyan Muslim leaders has issued a declaration telling all Muslims it is their duty to rebel against the Libyan leadership.

“They have demonstrated total arrogant impunity and continued, and even intensified, their bloody crimes against humanity. They have thereby demonstrated total infidelity to the guidance of God and His beloved Prophet (peace be upon him),” said the group, called the Network of Free Ulema of Libya.

“This renders them undeserving of any obedience or support, and makes rebelling against them by all means possible a divinely ordained duty,” the group said in a declaration on Monday.

Are Democrats Crazy?

Uh-oh. An article on budget cuts proposed by Republicans uses martial metaphors: “targets … attack … ultimatum.” The article in the Los Angeles Times opens with this: “Battle lines over steep federal spending reductions hardened Sunday.” Battle lines? Remember those anguished cries last month in the wake of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting? The hand-wringing, the worry that martial metaphors had pushed a leftwing nut over the edge?

And that’s just the lead to the story. The language in the rest of the Times’ article paints a truly alarming picture: “deepest spending cuts in generations … too severe … deadlocked … stalemate … showdown … budget battles … draconian attacks …

Just how excessive are these “draconian” cuts of $61 billion? In February 2010, President Obama proposed a 2011 budget of $3.83 trillion with a projected deficit of $1.27 trillion. In other words, the Federal Government would be spending 33.2% more than it takes in. With a $61 billion reduction in both outlays and deficit, Federal spending would be only 32.1% more than income.

Let’s put those numbers into perspective, rounding the national median household income off to $45,000. Let’s say that the Smith household spends $59,940 per year, and Mr. Smith plans to do so this year, and next year, and the year after that, decades without end. His wife, growing concerned, reluctantly, grudgingly, tentatively comes up with a plan to reduce their spending to $59,445 per year. Mr. Smith waxes hysterical, accuses his helpmate of attacking, attacking, pushing for belt-tightening so severe, so draconian as to capsize the good ship USS Smith. Who would be adjudicated crazy? Both of them?

Maybe Democrats are crazy. Anyone visiting the official website of Rep. David Wu, seven-term Congressman from Oregon, might get that impression: The first item under Hot Topics brags that Obamacare “has now been signed into law, marking the beginning of a process that will touch the lives of all Americans and make substantial improvements to our health care system.” Hello, Congressman, this is still breaking news? Concerning your assertions, a majority of Americans would agree Obamacare will “touch the lives of all Americans,” but not that it will “make substantial improvements to our health care system.”

So should Rep. Wu “enter a hospital for psychiatric treatment”? That sounds like, well, crazy talk, something from the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy, or from Tea Partiers. But soft you! That’s from his “most loyal and senior staffers”:

Three days before the Nov. 2 election, U.S. Rep. David Wu’s most loyal and senior staffers were so alarmed by his erratic behavior that they demanded he enter a hospital for psychiatric treatment … He was loud and sometimes angry … He said kooky things to staff and — more worrisome with a tough election fast approaching — around potential voters and donors.

Whoa, “kooky things … around potential voters and donors,” and they weren’t even talking about his position on Obamacare. Yet still he won re-election. Who is crazy here?

According to Lisa Grove, Wu’s long-serving campaign pollster, “This is way beyond acceptable levels and the charade needs to end NOW … No enabling by any potential enablers, he needs help and you need to be protected. Nothing else matters right now. Nothing else.” Indeed. One could be forgiven for thinking that Ms. Grove was writing about her president.
