- Quick Facts
In October 2010, approximately one month before the 2010 Mid-Term Elections, I wrote the blog Who Is Running the Country? At that time, my first book, The Devil at My Doorstep, was approximately one year old and starting to gain national attention. Much of its success is owed to Andrew Breitbart and BigGovernment.com. They are responsible for the book’s explosion on to the national scene, as Breitbart believed enough in me and my story to begin posting my blogs on BigGovernment.com. The first blog I posted, Unholy Alliance, explored how tactics utilized against EMS were the same intimidation tactics the SEIU utilized against Andrew, and whether the SEIU’s questionable relationship with the current Administration advanced Communism at the Highest Levels.
Ironically, almost two years later, it appears history is repeating itself. My second book, The Devil at Our Doorstep, explores how the SEIU’s Insidious Tentacles have infiltrated not just the Obama Administration, but the Democratic Party itself. The details chronicled in The Devil at Our Doorstep are supported by the September 21st article, published in The Washington Free Beacon, entitled “DNC Literally in Hock to SEIU,” explores how the DNC owes the SEIU roughly $8.0 million dollars and is transferring its banking relationship from Bank of America, who has repeatedly been attacked by the SEIU, to Amalgamated Bank which is owned by the SEIU. Can we trust the future of our nation to a Presidential administration who is indebted to arguably the most radical union in the world and has Andy Stern lurking in the shadows?
It is truly amazing that an organization like the SEIU continues to remain below the radar of the mainstream media and the American conscience. Despite the fact the SEIU is embattled on many fronts and clearly does not represent mainstream America, it appears to continue to hold considerable sway within the Obama administration. The following collection of articles and videos are the most recent stories of alleged SEIU corruption, or, as Mr. Stern would like to say, the SEIU’s “Persuasion of Power.”
One would think that President Obama would counsel such a radical group to tone down the rhetoric, especially with the upcoming elections. However, it appears he is comfortable being associated with a group that is being investigated for its terrorist ties, internal financial corruption, questionable political cash contributions, interference with the Arizona Immigration law and intimidation of its own employees in the union elections at Kaiser Permanente. Some would assume President Obama would be distancing himself as much as possible from this, but he does not need to as long as the media refuses to connect the dots and present the entire picture to the American people. Consider for just a moment how a business would be excoriated if it were involved in such activities. Maybe it’s because the President has instructed the media to ignore these outrages, or maybe it’s because the President has received his personal persuasion of power from the SEIU. Are these the people we want running our country?
We are on the precipice of the most important election in the history of the country. This election may do much to determine to what extent we will maintain our freedoms and free market society
