Communists Recruit by Phone in St. Louis



According to an Article in the Communist Party USA news, People's World, the CPUSA in St. Louis held their first 'phone bank' this month:

"ST. LOUIS, Mo. (Peoplesworld.org) - "You really made my day," said the voice on the other end of the phone, from Austin, Texas. "I'm so happy to hear from you guys." He was on his way to the South by Southwest music festival, but paused long enough to talk to a phonebanker.

That was a typical response from the coast-to-coast call to 1,500 new members of the Communist Party USA and Young Communist League on March 19. All had joined the CPUSA or YCL online recently, and some were getting their first contact.

"It was a great reception. People really want to be a part of the Communist Party," said Jonathan, one of the phone bankers. "Several people were very excited and said, 'I was wondering when someone was going to call me.'"

Cash for Clunkers 2: The Return of a Failure



According to an Article in the Washington Times, the Government wants to bring back the failed concept of cash for clunkers. Surprised?:

"Is the United States really prepared to deal with another tax payer paid for deal that will only benefit the now government owned GM? After all, did Cash for Clunkers part one really work out for the tax payers and auto dealers? Washington, D.C. based organization Americans for Tax Reform didn't think so and wrote in late October of 2009:

The program began on July 24th with a budget of $1 billion and by July 30th they were out of money. Giving people “free” money to buy cars is definitely popular. Congress then allocated another $2 billion that lasted almost until the end of August. That’s right, $3 billion in under a month. The program didn’t help the economy or auto industry. Despite a bump in the 3rd quarter to GDP and auto sales, consumer spending dropped 0.5% in September and the vehicle output bump was artificial and unsustainable, meaning it will drop off considerably in the next quarter as the market stabilizes to its real level. As Nick Gillespie and Veronique de Rugy pointed out today over at Reason, even the reported GDP bump is misleading, because is includes government spending. So if government spending increases it will increase the GDP, but that doesn’t mean any more was produced.

There are also the unseen costs of this program. By encouraging people to junk older vehicles, they lowered the supply of cheap used cars. When you lower supply and keep demand stable, the price goes up. With fewer used cars on the market, the prices for remaining used cars increases. This will make it more difficult for younger drivers or low income drivers to buy cars to get to work or school. (A video by Congressman Ron Paul further explains how it hurts the poor here.) At least the wealthy got a handout to buy their brand new cars though right?

Unfortunately, when ideas turn bad, it does not preclude another similar bad idea to be proposed later on."


If you remember correctly many dealers had a hard time getting paid for the first cash for clunkers program. You think this one will be any better?

Why Smart Meters WILL Make Power Companies Richer

Sometime this week I will be Breaking HUGE and Disturbing News about the Smart Grid. But before that time I want my readers to get a feeling for what the Smart Grid actually is. To get that started here is an Article from the Guardian that explains how Smart Meters for the Smart Grid will actually make Power Companies Richer:

"To listen to the government and the electricity companies, the coming "smart energy" grid and smart meters in all our homes herald reduced prices, lower carbon emissions and individual consumer control of energy.


My hunch is that this is nonsense and unless we are very careful, we will see Big Brother taking over over our homes as power companies get to micro-manage our energy supply and are given complete access to information about how we live.


Rather than see reductions in costs, I fear that most consumers will pay more, the most vulnerable people will be penalised and no energy will be saved at all.


Here's why the alarm bells are ringing:


1. A smart grid allows energy companies to charge infinitely variable rates according to when they provide the power. In the name of saving energy and emissions they have indicated that they plan to charge more at peak times and less at night or times of low use. The danger is that they act like the privatised train companies, charging exorbitant fares at rush hour – or when most people need power to make meals or wash up. The average consumer will have to pay far more for a reliable electrical service.


2. Studies show that smart meters with a feedback mechanism – such as a small wireless screen showing energy use – can save up to 15% off a household's energy and emissions by showing users when they are using energy needlessly and encouraging them to switch off unnecessary equipment or lights. But other research, in Scotland and Italy, suggests that after the initial novelty wears off, consumers go back to their bad old energy-wasting habits and companies start to charge whatever they can get away with.


3. People will be encouraged to programme individual appliances to switch on when power is cheaper and companies can be expected to offer lower rates in return for being allowed to turn down – or turn off – individual appliances' electricity use at times of high demand. This will benefit the educated and the techno-savvy, but pensioners, the ill and the vulnerable in society may be baffled and therefore penalised.


4. Power companies will be able to telleveryone's energy-use habits precisely, to the point of knowing which appliances they use, when people are in or out of a house, how efficient their boilers are and what they cook. This data is commercially valuable and it can be expectedthat it would be sold to other companies. The regulator will have to decide who owns the data and whether companies have the right to turn off appliances. Fears that data on energy consumption could be misused by criminals, police or insurance companies have slowed the compulsory introduction of smart meters in Holland.


5. The gains are likely to be made by the rich who can afford to generate their own electricity, or who can buy the most energy-efficient technology. Everyone else will have to become fluent in the art of micromanaging their energy use. This is likely to be beyond the old, the poor and people confused by technology.


6. The large energy companies have a bad record in pushing up prices whenever possible and many have lost the trust of consumers. Many have been found to overcharge, missell, and make misleading statements about green tariffs. The likelihood is that the smart grid will make things more complex. Only last week, the regulator, Ofgem, ordered the power companies to reform their pricing and to stop confusing customers who, they said, were were being "bamboozled" with more than 300 different energy tariffs.


7. If electricity companies are allowed to vary the price that they charge their customers by the hour, how much more difficult will it be to challenge them or ensure they are acting fairly? In the US, where smart meters have been installed in some towns, there has been a rash of accusations of unfair practices."

As you can see, the Smart Grid is NOT going to be what it's being advertised to be. But after my story Breaks later this week, you will truly understand what the Smart Grid can and WILL be used for. .

EU to Ban Gasoline Cars From All Cities by 2050

Global Warming Nuts are not just reserved to the U.S.

According to the Telegraph:
"The European Commission on Monday unveiled a "single European transport area" aimed at enforcing "a profound shift in transport patterns for passengers" by 2050.
The plan also envisages an end to cheap holiday flights from Britain to southern Europe with a target that over 50 per cent of all journeys above 186 miles should be by rail.
Top of the EU's list to cut climate change emissions is a target of "zero" for the number of petrol and diesel-driven cars and lorries in the EU's future cities.
Siim Kallas, the EU transport commission, insisted that Brussels directives and new taxation of fuel would be used to force people out of their cars and onto "alternative" means of transport.
"That means no more conventionally fuelled cars in our city centres," he said. "Action will follow, legislation, real action to change behaviour.".

Obama's 'Youth Corps' Coming to An Elementary School Near You


You send your kids to school everyday in the hopes that they will receive a good, honest education in reading, writing and arithmetic. But it would seem that the Obama Administration would like to add a few more subjects to the curriculum: Global Warming and Public Service.

All this week I have been breaking stories about President Obama's 21st Century Youth Conservation Corps. I have discovered that through this "Youth Corps" the Obama Administration, with the help of leftest organizations including SEIU, hope to indoctrinate your children into believing in Global Warming( The First Goal Listed on their Website is to reduce the impact of climate change on our natural resources), Social Justice and Collective Bargaining just to name a few. Now it seems that the Obama Administration wants to teach your kids about working for the Government.

According to the Department of Interior's pamphlet on the 'Youth Corps' one of the "goals" is to "engage" kids in Public Service:

"In the past, young people would aspire to careers in public service, working as park rangers, biologists,and recreation managers. Today, the appeal to work in natural resource jobs must compete with new vocational interests and careers that reflect our changing society. The Department must be proactive in its efforts to ensure that talented and capable young people are interested in entering public service as natural resource professionals.

The Department’s 2010 budget initiative identifies a three-pronged approach to:

• Engage youth in public service.
• Enhance science-based programs offered
through schools and community partners.
• Improve curricula of national environmental
education programs."


The Obama Administration seems to think that your kids need help in learning about Public Service in our 'Changing Society'. I assume he means our Society is going to change because of Global Warming.. But I digress.

As of right now, this Youth Corps is voluntary so if you don't want your kid influenced by the Radical Leftest you don't have to.

Or Do You?

According to the same Department of Interior's pamphlet on the 21st Century Youth Conservation Corps, they will be bringing Obama's Youth Corps to your Kid's School:

"Critical to the success of the 21st Century Youth Conservation Corps initiative is ensuring that students interested in natural resource careers gain the necessary knowledge and skills to qualify for Interior positions. The NCTC will work with learning institutions at elementary, middle and high schools, and at the college level to meet this goal."
So the Obama Administration is going to an Elementary School to find what? 1st Graders that want to work for the Government? Really? And it's "Critical to the Success" of Obama's Youth Corps? Why? Well the Pamphlet gives the answer to the question of Why:

"A body of research exists that suggests that childhood experiences with nature are associated with increased environmentalism."
So the idea is if Obama can get to your kids soon enough through the "Youth Corps" then they will become Good Little Indoctrinated Leftest Environmentalists.

But that's Not all.

The Obama Administration will also be using different Government Departments, like the Department of Land Management, to "engage" the Youth in the Conservation Corps. Because it would seem, according to the Pamphlet, the Administration sees these types of Youth Programs as the "Gateway" into Federal Service:

"Participants will learn while serving, and can earn stipends as well as college credits. For those interested in pursuing careers with natural resource management agencies, the Student Career Experience Program provides the gateway into Federal service."
So it would seem the Obama Administration is not only looking to indoctrinate your kids but to recruit them as well.

For those that need a reminder about the type of "Youth Corps" that the Obama Administration seems to relish, here is a Rather 'Militaristic ' Commercial from one of the Branches of AmeriCorps, City Year:



And if you think President Obama isn't aware of such an Organization then you may want to ask him why he wore a City Year Hat While Golfing.



Isn't it odd that Secretary of the Interior Salazar described the Youth of America as 'Engines of Change' and the City Year Commercial depicted their Young Recruits as Being 'Change'. The Obama Administration seems to be showing a Disturbing trend in their Actions. Be it your kids at School or kids in Government 'Youth' Programs like City Year, Obama seems determined to 'Change' the Youth of America into his Vision for the Future.

And of what I know of the President and his Political Leanings, that is one Hell of a Scary Socialist Future.

SEIU is a 'Partner' With Obama's 'Youth Corps'


The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is not only known for their Violent Tactics against those who oppose them, but for being in Bed with the Obama Administration. So what I have to tell you next should be no surprise.

Earlier this week I broke the story about how Obama's 21st Century Youth Conservation Corps is actually a vehicle that is being used to indoctrinate your children into not only believing in Global Warming, but as the Secretary of Interior, Ken Salazar said, to turn your children into "Engines of Change".

The 21st Century Conservation Youth Corps is being administered by the Department of Interior's 'Youth Department' that was created in 2009 by Ken Salazar. And according to the 'Youth Department's' website, Youthgo.gov, it's their job to "inspire" The Next Generation of Conservation Leaders:

"The Next Generation of Conservation Leaders

Outside and Involved

The Department of the Interior is uniquely positioned to help millions of young Americans reconnect with our natural and cultural heritage, put thousands of young people to work in the great outdoors, and inspire the next generation of conservation leaders.
Who is partnered up with Youthgo.gov in order to help "inspire" those new Conservation Leaders? According to the partnership page of Youthgo.gov several Government and leftest Organizations including, AmeriCorps, The Sierra Club and something called The Blue Green Alliance.

According to the Youthgo.gov, The Blue Green Alliance is a harmless organization made up of Unions and Environmental Organizations.

"The BlueGreen Alliance is a national, strategic partnership between labor unions and environmental organizations dedicated to expanding the number and quality of jobs in the green economy."

But According to The Blue Green Alliance Website they are NOT just about saving the Planet, but pushing forward the Ideas of Collective Bargaining:

"The Blue Green Alliance works on issues ranging from energy and climate change to transportation to workers' rights and green chemistry. Specifically, BGA is working to:

•Pass comprehensive clean energy and climate change legislation that is based on two overriding principles - the best scientific advice on reduction targets and solutions that create and save millions of American jobs;
•Restore the rights of workers in the United States to organize and bargain collectively;
•Establish a 21st Century trade policy that promotes growth and prosperity across all sectors of global society, and embeds enforceable labor, environmental, and human rights standards in our trade agreements; and
•Create an informed 21st century policy on toxic chemicals that protects workers and communities from dangerous chemicals, enhances public health and promotes safer alternatives."

The Blue Green Alliance accomplishes this work through:

•Comprehensive Climate Change and Energy Legislation. BGA advocates for its recent global warming legislative principles, which expresses support for an economy-wide cap-and-trade system.
•Renewable Electricity and Energy Efficiency Standards' Campaigns. In partnership with dozens of other advocacy organizations and businesses, BGA promotes the passage of state and federal legislation mandating the production of renewable electricity.
•Employee Free Choice Campaign. BGA advocates for the expansion of workers' rights in the United States through passage of the Employee Free Choice Act.
•Transportation Act Reauthorization. BGA advocates for transportation investments that create green jobs in freight rail, high-speed rail and other infrastructure projects that contribute to solving global warming.

The Blue Green Alliance is also interested in 'Education' that involves the Communist/Socialist Ideals of 'Social Justice' and they even brag about working with Al Gore's 'Green' Organization:

"The Blue Green Alliance Foundation is working to educate the public about the job-creating potential of environmental investments, including solutions to global warming, with programs including:

•The annual Good Jobs, Green Jobs National Conference, which took place in Washington, D.C. in 2009, brought together labor, environmental, business, academic, political and social justice leaders to share research and ideas for achieving a refashioned, green economy.
•Labor Climate Project. In partnership with former Vice President Al Gore's Alliance for Climate Protection, the Blue Green Alliance Foundation is working with union members across the country to educate blue-collar constituencies about the urgency and solvability of global warming and how its solutions can revitalize our economy and create good, union jobs."

Ironically, Carol M Browner, known Socialist and Obama's Climate Czar until she stepped down at the beginning of this year, is a former board of directors member for Al Gore's Alliance for Climate Protection.

Now you may wonder who belongs to this Socialist Sympathizing Labor type 'Green' Organization. Well according to their About Us and Membership page , several unions and environmental groups including The Sierra Club and SEIU:

"Launched in 2006 by the United Steelworkers and the Sierra Club, this unique labor-environmental collaboration has grown to include the Communications Workers of America (CWA), Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), National Wildlife Federation (NWF), Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA), Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA), American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), Sheet Metal Workers' International Association, United Auto Workers and the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW). The Blue Green Alliance unites more than 14 million members and supporters in pursuit of good jobs, a clean environment and a green economy."
If you click on the Map that is located on the Youthgo.gov website you will notice who the Youth Department of the Department of Interior is 'partnering' up with in each state. Not Surprisingly you will see that The Blue Green Alliance is working with the Government in almost every State of the Union. And According to The Blue Green Alliance website, their State-Based Chapters have a coinciding 'Green' agenda:

"State-based BlueGreen Alliance Chapters. The Blue Green Alliance Foundation and the local chapters of its national partners are working in states around the country on climate change, workers' rights, clean energy job creation, fair trade and green chemistry."
So it would seem that The Blue Green Alliance and SEIU are 'Partnering Up' to brainwash your children through Obama's 21st Century Conservation Youth Corps into believing in Climate Change, Collective Bargaining and Social Justice while at the same teaching them how to be 'Engines of Change' so they can 'Refashion' the U.S. into some Socialist 'Green' Economy.

Don't you Love Watching Your Tax Dollars At Work?

CBO Says Taxing-By-The-Mile is an 'Efficient' Way to Raise Revenue


Just when you thought that the Government could think of new ways to take your money, they don't... They just come up with old ideas instead.

Ever since 'green' technology and electric cars have become the latest fad, politicians have been wondering how they are going to replace the tax revenue from the gas tax. That is based on the premise that electric cars will need little if any gas and therefore revenues from the gas tax will dramatically drop.

The First Idea to replace the gas tax was spawned around 2005 with something called Tax-by-the-mile. This Idea met with alot of resistance from the Public with fears of an Orwellian Society where the Government Tracks your every move and Controls your Behavior through your Wallet.

While this may seem far fetched, most people don't realize that this Tax "Idea" is alot closer to becoming a reality.

In 2005 the Government began a study, in conjunction with the University of Iowa, on how to implement a "Tax by the Mile" Program. That study was finally completed last year. According to the an Article done by ABC News on the Study, the Tax-by-the-Mile system would go something like this:

"Every time the drivers filled up at two of the participating gas stations, the device would automatically calculate how many miles they drove. Instead of being charged Oregon's 24-cents-a-gallon gas tax, the motorists were charged 1.2 "Ultimately, you pay for the mileage that you drive," Starr said. "We made it really clear that our pilot was revenue-neutral. We didn't want to raise more taxes from Oregon drivers but just to test the concept."

At the end of the pilot, 91 percent of the volunteers said they would agree to continue paying the mileage fee in lieu of the gas tax if the program were extended statewide.

The catch for Oregon: Retrofitting vehicles with the devices was extremely costly. Starr said that if a vehicle-miles-traveled tax is ever permanently implemented, the automakers would have to be required to install the transponders in all new cars.

"It's something that needs to be addressed at the federal level," Starr said. "It really makes very little sense for one state on its own to implement a VMT."

Oregon charged all the volunteers the same 1.2 cents for each mile driven, although the rate could be adjusted as necessary. The technology could be used to charge motorists more for driving during rush hour or less for off-hours. Certain zones could also be deemed congestion areas and higher fees could be assessed.

So, states could actually tax people more for driving through city centers during their morning commute than a farmer on a rural road at midnight. States could also charge higher rates to SUVs and lower rates to hybrids if they wanted to encourage the use of more fuel-efficient vehicles. Such tracking has drawn concerns from privacy advocates, although VMT supporters say such issues can be resolved."


So If I was still a long distance commuter where I drove 100 Miles a day round trip to and from work 5 days a week. At .1 cent a Mile I would rack up $300 in taxes by the time I needed to change the oil. That would mean almost every month I would have to come up with an additional $300 just to pay taxes since I lived 50 miles from where I work. Somehow I just don't see that happening on my salary.

And while the above article claims that retrofitting everyone's vehicle with a device that could allow a Tax-by-The-Mile system might be expensive, it's not impossible.

The University of Iowa created a video on how the Government might install such a device in any vehicle to track your mileage:



So a GPS is going to be located in your car and the Government Isn't Going to Record your Every Location... Yea I believe that, don't you?

Doesn't the saying Absolute Power Corrupt Absolutely Ring Any Alarm Bells??

As Crazy as all this sounds it just got a little Crazier.

According to an Article on CNS News the Congressional Budget Office has said that a Tax-By-The-Mile program is an Efficient way to Raise Revenue:

"(CNSNews.com) - A new Congressional Budget Office study says taxing motorists based on the number of miles they drive would be a fair and "efficient" way to charge motorists for the real cost of using the nation's highways. "Vehicle-miles traveled" taxes (or VMT taxes) also would provide a strong incentive for people to drive less.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood floated the idea of a VMT tax one month after President Obama took office, but Obama’s spokesman immediately shot it down. "It is not and will not be the policy of the Obama administration," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reportersin February 2009.

But that was then.

The CBO study, released this week, says the federal government pays in part for about 25 percent of the nation's highways, which carry about 85 percent of all road traffic. Right now, federal spending on those highways is funded mainly by taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel, but those taxes do not raise enough money to support either the current federal spending on highways -- or the higher spending levels that some transportation planners advocate.

The CBO said most of the costs of using a highway, including pavement damage, congestion, accidents, and noise, are tied more closely to the number of miles traveled than to the amount of fuel consumed.

While raising fuel taxes would bring in more money, the CBO notes that a "fundamental" problem would remain: "By themselves, fuel taxes cannot provide a strong incentive for people to avoid overusing highways," the report said.

On the other hand, VMT taxes would have most motorists paying "substantially more than they do now -- perhaps several times more," the report said. "Such a system would maximize the efficiency of highway use by discouraging trips for which costs exceed benefits."

So as you can see, the Government is always looking for the next way to get money out of your wallet (and Blood from a Stone) while forcing you to change your behavior in a way that pleases those in power. (For instance not Driving so Much but Maybe Using that GREAT Bullet Train the President is going to Build).

Because as you know, the Founding Fathers would NEVER have complained about the British King taxing them by the Miles they walked or Rode their Horse...

Would they?

New Haven CT: Young Communist League to Protest With Unions During Next "Red School Bus" Tour Stop



The Young Communist League is taking a 'Red School Bus Tour' across the United States with their first stop being in Los Angeles California a month ago. Now the Communists are setting their sights on their second School Bus Stop, New Haven Connecticut.

The Young Communist League (YCL) plan on having their "Marxist" Classes at the Local Communist Party Headquarters in Connecticut next month:

"The next stop on the Red Bus Tour is New Haven, Connecticut, April 1st - 3rd at the New Haven Peoples Center. Activists from all over the east coast are expected. "We've been doing outreach to several youth organizations in New Haven," said Lisa, an organizer of the YCL school and conference, "There's a lot of excitement about it."

"At one outreach meeting, there was a big discussion about communism. We cleared up some people's misconceptions and expect a big delegation from the group," she said.

Hip Hop and spoken word artists, documentary filmmakers and other young artists plan to make presentations at the event. A slide show on the 17th World Festival of Youth and Students held last year in Pretoria, South Africa is also planned."


But spreading Marxism to the Youth of New Haven isn't enough. The YCL is also going to "March In Solidarity" at a Pro Union Rally while in New Haven:

"YCL members and other groups helping to organize the school in New Haven are participating in a March 30 march and rally, as part of the labor movement's April 4 protests around the country. "We're combining study and action," said Joelle Fishman, the Connecticut CPUSA chairperson. "It's an exciting moment."

Because the 'Red Scare' is not only coming to the beautiful town of New Haven Connecticut.

But the Communists are going to March to Support the Unions as well.

WTH?: Obama Encouraging Brazil to Drill for Oil, While Preventing Drilling in the U.S.



According to Fox News Insider:

"President Obama said this week that the U.S. wants to help Brazil develop oil reserves so that we can purchase oil from them. With both Republicans and Democrats agreeing that we have to stop our reliance on foreign countries for oil, why would the president encourage Brazil to drill but not allow it here? Mike Gallagher joined Megyn Kelly and said he thinks the president is "punking" us."

He hates the U.S. isn't it obvious?

U.S. Sovereignty Dead: U.S. States' Anti-Union Laws Nullified by International Law?

In The past several weeks a Law was passed in Wisconsin that limits the negotiating power of the public sector unions, but that law has been temporally put on hold by a Judge. Undeterred by this development, several other state legislatures are in the process of crafting and passing similar laws in their states.

But it could all be for nothing.

According to a letter from Amnesty International, any laws passed in the U.S. to curb the power of ANY union or the formation there of, is a breach of international law:

"Amnesty International has urged several US states to abandon planned legislation that would drastically restrict workers' rights.

States including Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma and Tennessee have proposed bills severely limiting the collective bargaining rights of trade union members. A similar bill was passed in Wisconsin on Friday.

"State governors must withdraw support for these measures which, if adopted, would violate international law," said Shane Enright, Amnesty International’s trade union adviser.

“The US has an obligation to uphold the rights of American workers - including the specific right to organize and bargain collectively."

Wisconsin governor Scott Walker signed a bill on Friday that undermines the ability of unions in the public sector to protect workers. The legislation also takes away nearly all collective bargaining rights for most public employees, limiting their negotiation rights only to wages.

As well as restricting collective bargaining rights, union activists say legislators in as many as 37 states have introduced hundreds of anti-union bills. Some affect negotiation of healthcare benefits, restrict freedom of association, place caps on the minimum wage and deprive workers of the right to strike.

Similar measures being promoted in Congress would affect federal public employees.

"The Wisconsin bill is symbolic of a wider attack on unions in the USA, where workers and are facing an onslaught from the authorities," said Shane Enright.

"Many employees are already struggling because of the economic crisis and these laws will undermine fundamental human rights and labour rights protections, which are sorely needed to ensure that employees do not bear the brunt of the crisis. It will also jeopardize the delivery of vital public services that these employees deliver."

“This is also a struggle for migrant workers’ rights, for education and health rights, for wage security, for workplace health and safety. We are seeing communities insisting on social justice, economic rights and personal liberties against powerful vested interests. Fundamental human rights are at stake, and we stand in solidarity with the US labour movement in this struggle.”

Under international law, all workers have a human right to organize and to bargain collectively.

These rights are an essential foundation to the realisation of other rights, and are enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), the International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) and the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of their Families, as well as conventions adopted by the International Labour Organization (ILO).

As a state party to the ICCPR and a signatory to the ICESCR, the USA has an obligation to respect the human rights under these instruments and treaties.

As a member of the ILO, the USA also has a commitment, through the 1998 ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, to respect, promote and realize the fundamental rights set out in the organization’s core conventions.

Moves to limit such rights in the USA are also at odds with commitments made under the North American Agreement on Labor Cooperation (NAALC) as well as numerous subsequent trade agreements negotiated and ratified over the last 15 years."

Some of you may ask how is this possible? How can a treaty nullify the state's right to pass a law that restrict public sector unions?

When a treaty is ratified it becomes the law of the land. Until that treaty is declared null and void by the Supreme Court because that treaty is found to be in conflict with the Constitution of the United States, it can be enforced.

For example, the ILO, or International Labor Organization, was created under the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. This treaty was signed by the United States and therefore is bound by the agreements in that treaty.

According to the ILO website, Freedom of Association and the Right to Collective Bargaining is an integral part of a free and open society:

"The right of workers and employers to form and join organizations of their own choosing is an integral part of a free and open society. In many cases, these organizations have played a significant role in their countries’ democratic transformation. From advising governments on labour legislation to providing education and training for trade unions and employer groups, the ILO is regularly engaged in promoting freedom of association. The ILO’s Committee on Freedom of Association was set up in 1951 to examine violations of workers’ and employers’ organizing rights. The committee is tripartite and handles complaints in ILO Member States whether or not they have ratified freedom of association conventions. Through the Committee on Freedom of Association and other supervisory mechanisms, the ILO has frequently defended rights of trade unions and employers’ organizations."

So it would appear that the ILO does not differentiate between public and private sector unions when it comes to the 'right' of collective bargaining.

So if any state passes a law limiting the collective bargaining rights of any public sector union, it appears that they would be able to petition international organizations, like the ILO, to have the law declared illegal, in this case, under the treaty of Versailles.

The worst part is the ILO is just one international labor organization that the U.S. has an agreement with.

As the letter from Amnesty International states, there are no less than 3 or 4 other agreements that protect the right to collective bargaining. That is not even counting the NAALC, also known as the North American Free Trade Agreement.

I am NOT a lawyer, but from my layman's perspective it would appear that ANY law passed by ANY state that limits Collective Bargaining of ANY union, Public or Private, can be declared null and void since it may break international law.

This is not a far fetched concept since President Obama has had a regular habit of embracing 'Transnational law' over the Constitution of the United States when it suits his needs.

If this doesn't mean U.S. Sovereignty is Dead...

I don't know what does.

Son of Wisconsin Judge former Manager for SEIU and the AFL-CIO


Wisconsin Judge Sumi out a stay on Governor Walker's Union law citing a violation of an 'open meetings" law.

But should Judge Sumi have even made that ruling?

According to an article on Pajamas Media, Judge Sumi's Son is a political activist that worked for SEIU and the AFL-CIO:

"Maryann Sumi is the judge who blocked the Wisconsin union bill, citing open meetings law. And in answer to the question in the headline: Maybe!

Her son is a political operative who also happens to be a former lead field manager with the AFL-CIO and data manager for the SEIU State Council. Both the SEIU and the AFL-CIO have members who are public-sector employees in Wisconsin. In fact, as a federation, the AFL-CIO can boast of several member-unions that represent public-sector employees. Maryann Sumi is hardly an unbiased judge in the matter."


Oddly his Bio was taken down from his company website that listed this information.

The odd question is if there is no wrong doing here, why take it down?

Former SEIU Official Talks About Secret Plan to Bring Down the U.S. Financial System and Rebuild It With Marxism



Thanks to The Blaze and the Business Insider, a Secret Plan formulated by those on the left to destabilize the United States and rebuild it in Marxism has been exposed.

A former SEIU official, Stephen Lerner, was speaking during a closed session at a Pace University Forum last week.

Mr. Lerner discussed how the left can destabilize the country by attacking a large corporations and banks, like JP Morgan Chase, with a combination of mass protests and other coordinated actions through unions and community organizers. When the U.S. is destabilized enough Mr. Lerner visualizes a "rebuilding" of the nation using Marxist concepts such as Wealth Redistribution. Here is a transcript of the conversation:


"FULL TRANSCRIPT FROM THE BLAZE

SPEAKER: Stephen Lerner. Speaker at the Left Forum 2011 "Towards a Politics of Solidarity" Pace University March 19, 2011

Speaker Bio: Stephen Lerner is the architect of the SEIU's groundbreaking Justice for Janitors campaign. He led the union's banking and finance campaign and has partnered with unions and groups in Europe, South American and elsewhere in campaigns to hold financial institutions accountable. As director of the union's private equity project, he launched a long campaign to expose the over-leveraged feeding frenzy of private equity firms during the boom years that led to the ensuing economic disaster.

TRANSCRIPT:

It feels to me after a long time of being on defense that something is starting to turn in the world and we just have to decide if we are on defense or offense

Maybe there is a different way to look at some of theses questions it’s hard for me to think about any part of organizing without thinking what just happened with this economic crisis and what it means

I don't know how to have a discussion about labor and community if we don't first say what do we need to do at this time in history what is the strategy that gives us some chance of winning because I spent my life time as a union organizer justice for janitors a lot of things

It seems we are at a moment where the world is going to get much much worse or much much better

Unions are almost dead we cannot survive doing what we do but the simple fact of the matter is community organizations are almost dead also and if you think about what we need to do it may give us some direction which is essentially what the folks that are in charge - the big banks and everything - what they want is stability

Every time there is a crisis in the world they say, well, the markets are stable.

What's changed in America is the economy doing well has nothing to do with the rest of us

They figured out that they don't need us to be rich they can do very well in a global market without us so what does this have to do with community and labor organizing more.

We need to figure out in a much more through direct action more concrete way how we are really trying to disrupt and create uncertainty for capital for how corporations operate

The thing about a boom and bust economy is it is actually incredibly fragile.

There are actually extraordinary things we could do right now to start to destabilize the folks that are in power and start to rebuild a movement.

For example, 10% of homeowners are underwater right their home they are paying more for it then its worth 10% of those people are in strategic default, meaning they are refusing to pay but they are staying in their home that's totally spontaneous they figured out it takes a year to kick me out of my home because foreclosure is backed up

If you could double that number you would you could put banks at the edge of insolvency again.

Students have a trillion dollar debt

We have an entire economy that is built on debt and banks so the question would be what would happen if we organized homeowners in mass to do a mortgage strike if we get half a million people to agree it would literally cause a new finical crisis for the banks not for us we would be doing quite well we wouldn't be paying anything.

Government is being strangled by debt

The four things we could do that could really upset wall street

One is if city and state and other government entities demanded to renegotiate their debt
and you might say why would the banks ever do it - because city and counties could say we won’t do business with you in the future if you won’t renegotiate the debt now

So we could leverage the power we have of government and say two things we won’t do business with you JP Morgan Chase anymore unless you do two things: you reduce the price of our interest and second you rewrite the mortgages for everybody in the communities

We could make them do that

The second thing is there is a whole question in Europe about students’ rates in debt structure. What would happen if students said we are not going to pay. It’s a trillion dollars. Think about republicans screaming about debt a trillion dollars in student debt

There is a third thing we can think about what if public employee unions instead of just being on the defensive put on the collective bargaining table when they negotiate they say we demand as a condition of negotiation that the government renegotiate - it’s crazy that you’re paying too much interest to your buddies the bankers it’s a strike issue - we will strike unless you force the banks to renegotiate/

Then if you add on top of that if we really thought about moving the kind of disruption in Madison but moving that to Wall Street and moving that to other cities around the country

We basically said you stole seventeen trillion dollars - you've improvised us and we are going to make it impossible for you to operate

Labor can’t lead this right now so if labor can’t lead but we are a critical part of it we do have money we have millions of members who are furious

But I don't think this kind of movement can happen unless community groups and other activists take the lead.

If we really believe that we are in a transformative stage of what's happening in capitalism

Then we need to confront this in a serious way and develop really ability to put a boot in the wheel then we have to think not about labor and community alliances we have to think about how together we are building something that really has the capacity to disrupt how the system operates

We need to think about a whole new way of thinking about this not as a partnership but building something new.

We have to think much more creatively. The key thing... What does the other side fear the most - they fear disruption. They fear uncertainty. Every article about Europe says in they rioted in Greece the markets went down

The folks that control this country care about one thing how the stock market goes what the bond market does how the bonuses goes. We have a very simple strategy:

How do we bring down the stock market
How do we bring down their bonuses
How do we interfere with there ability to be rich

And that means we have to politically isolate them, economically isolate them and disrupt them

It’s not all theory i’ll do a pitch.

So a bunch of us around the country think who would be a really good company to hate we decided that would be JP Morgan Chase and so we are going to roll out over the next couple of months what would hopefully be an exciting campaign about JP Morgan Chase that is really about challenge the power of Wall Street.

And so what we are looking at is the first week in May can we get enough people together starting now to really have an week of action in New York I don't want to give any details because I don't know if there are any police agents in the room.

The goal would be that we will roll out of New York the first week of May. We will connect three ideas

that we are not broke there is plenty of money
they have the money - we need to get it back
and that they are using Bloomberg and other people in government as the vehicle to try and destroy us

And so we need to take on those folks at the same time

and that we will start here we are going to look at a week of civil disobedience - direct action all over the city
then roll into the JP Morgan shareholder meeting which they moved out of New York because I guess they were afraid because of Columbus.

There is going to be a ten state mobilization it try and shut down that meeting and then looking at bank shareholder meetings around the country and try and create some moments like Madison except where we are on offense instead of defense

Where we have brave and heroic battles challenging the power of the giant corporations. We hope to inspire a much bigger movement about redistributing wealth and power in the country and that labor can’t do itself that community groups can’t do themselves but maybe we can work something new and different that can be brave enough and daring and nimble enough to do that kind of thing."



Here is a recording of the conversation:

This makes you wonder what exactly was talked about when Andy Stern of SEIU visited the white house so many times and Richard Trumka of the AFL-CIO calls the white house everyday.

Communist News: High Gas Price Fix; Nationalize Big Oil



It seems like everytime there is a "Crisis" the Communists only have one answer:

Let Government Do It.

Well the high gas prices are no different. According to an article on the Communist Party USA News, People's World, they think that we need to Nationalize the Oil companies in order to make prices go down:

"If concentration in the oil industry continues to increase, higher gasoline prices can be expected."
- U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, 2002

I blew a gasket paying $3.89 for a gallon of gas the other day. It cost me over $60 to fill the tank and tore a gigantic hole in my pocket.

Everybody's fuming about it. The average price of gas at the pump has jumped nearly 40 cents since Feb. 22.

"Analysts" say the price rise is because of turmoil in the Middle East and specifically Libya, where production has been cut by one million barrels a day. But other oil producing countries have picked up the slack and deny supply is the problem.

There's no oil shortage either. According to Chris Rhodes at oilprice.com, "The world proved oil reserves are close to 1.2 trillion (1,200 billion) barrels" and growing.

Even before all the turmoil in North Africa and the Middle East, "experts" were warning of $4 per gallon of gas for this summer. Sure enough the prices started going up shortly after that.

So what's the cause of the skyrocketing prices? Kevin Kerr, president of commodities firm Kerr Trading International calls the current price levels "simply money grab and fear trade."

It's said "speculators" are responsible for the run up in prices. Some say half the price of a barrel of oil is due to energy futures traders and speculators.

Who are these speculators? They are in fact the oil companies themselves and the nation's biggest banks and hedge funds.

The extreme monopolization of oil production, it's refining and marketing (from the well to the pump) and the near total deregulation over the last 30 years of the energy industry has allowed the oil giants and Wall Street to manipulate the so-called energy future's trading market and control pricing.

The six largest oil companies operating in U.S. (ExxonMobil, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Valero, Shell and BP) control 60% of the U.S. refining market and (minus Valero) 60% of the nation's gas stations, compare with 27% in 1991.

By virtue of their monopoly, they don't unilaterally set the price of crude, but they are a major determinant and largely determine the price of gas at the pump.

The transfer of wealth to these bandits is staggering. The San Francisco Chronicle reports, "for every $10 sustained increase in oil prices, gas prices increase by 25 cents and for every one cent increase in gas prices, the cost to American households $1 billion. This means that a sustained increase of $10 in oil prices costs American households $25 billion!"

Chevron announced its 4th quarter profits from 2010 jumped 72%, with a net income of $5.1 billion for the quarter.

Chevron wasn't the only thief boasting. Exxon's profits jumped 53% and its profit was $9.25 billion, compared with $6.05 billion the year before. For the year, Exxon made $30.46 billion. BP, which had a rough year, still boasted a 30% profit in the 4th quarter.

Part of the oil company profits is $4 billion a year in federal government subsidies and tax breaks. Some estimates are as high as $15-35 billion per year in subsidies.

According to Antonia Juhasz in her informative and aptly named book, "The Tyranny of Oil" the oil giants lost their domination of the global oil markets after OPEC nations began nationalizing their reserves during the 1950-1970s. The oil companies then sought to regain control of pricing and boosting profits by two means.

The first was the result of merger mania of the 1980s and 1990s in the energy industry. With their enormous combined wealth, these behemoths became vertically integrated and bought up the independent refining business and gas stations around the country. That allowed them to determine prices at the pump without competition.

Secondly, they sought to circumvent control of global oil prices by the OPEC nations. This was done by establishing an "energy futures market" and deregulating governmental oversight over that market.

Despite global competition from energy companies in China, Venezuela and elsewhere, the global price of crude oil is largely determined by the oil futures market first established in 1983 in the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX).

Prices paid on futures markets are not what someone would pay for a barrel of crude oil today, but what they will pay for future orders. Most of the futures trading are done by investors who never take possession of a single barrel of oil.

The drive for deregulation of the futures markets started during the Reagan administration and was led by the nation's biggest banks, investment companies and hedge funds and later by the Seven Sisters (the above mentioned plus Marathon) and other energy related corporations like Enron and Koch Industries (bankrollers of the tea party and Wisconsin's Republican Walker).

Deregulation removed the Commodities Future Trading Commission from oversight of the futures market and further deregulation in 2000 allowed Wall Street and energy corporations to establish their own exchanges exempt from any oversight. This was known as the "Enron Loophole."

As a result the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) was established by the Wall Street thieves and has become the dominant exchange. No one really knows what kind of manipulation is taking place in the markets. In fact many of the energy traders learned their craft at Enron. These corporations are free to plunder without restraint.

To reduce prices at the pump requires an all-people's fight against Wall Street and the oil companies. Mass outrage can have an effect, but ultimately their greed and insatiable desire for greater profits drives prices upward.

A powerful movement in the streets and the electoral and legislative arena is needed to reregulate the energy futures market followed by its dismantlement. It will take a movement of heretofore unseen power to nationalize the oil corporations altogether, allowing the nation to develop a publicly owned energy industry and freeing the country from the stranglehold on our democratic institutions.

A publicly owned energy industry can also invest in a sustainable energy policy based on renewable resources. Then the "tyranny of oil" will be a thing of the past."

Flashback: Football Legend Jackie Smith at First St. Louis Tea Party



Recently someone posted this video of the first St. Louis Tea Party where Jackie Smith was given the opportunity to speak.

For those that are not St. Louis Cardinal Football Fans, according to the NFL Hall of Fame:

"Jackie Smith, a 6-4, 235-pound tight end, was a fixture for 15 years with the St. Louis Cardinals from 1963 to 1977. He finished his career with the Dallas Cowboys in 1978. At the time of his retirement, he ranked as the all-time receiver among tight ends with 480 receptions for 7,918 yards and 40 touchdowns."

Obama "Youth Corps" to "Use Crisis as an Opportunity" to "Transform America"


Earlier in the Obama Administration there was a great outcry from parents when it was discovered that the President was going to require children to serve 50 hours of Government Service a year. But because of the overwhelming anger expressed by the population, the idea was scraped.

Just when you thought the attempt to brainwash your children was over, the Obama Administration rears it's ugly head.

According to a Video released today by the White House, the Obama Administration is going to create the 21st Century Conservation Youth Service Core through the Great Outdoors Initiative. In the Video the Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, says:

(00:56)"Just about a month ago the President announced The America's Great Outdoors Initiative. It is an effort to create the 21st Century Conservation Program for the United States of America. An absolute key component of that program is the engagement of young people in conservation across America. To that end we have included in the report the creation of a 21st Century Conservation Corps for America. We want young people to be involved with us.."(1:25)

Here is the Video:



Now what is the 21st Century Conservation Youth Service Corps?

Well according to Youthgo.gov:

"The 21st Century Conservation Service Corps (21CSC) builds upon and leverages the experience and expertise of existing federal, state and non-profit programs, including the United States Youth Conservation Corps, Corps programs through partnerships with the Corps Network, as well as many other federal and non-federal conservation and youth organizations. These corps facilitate conservation service work on public lands and encourage a new generation of natural resource managers and environmental scientists.

Through the 21CSC America’s young people play a key role in:

•reducing the impacts of climate change on our natural resources,
•empowering Native American communities,
•building trails,
•enhancing wildlife habitat,
•improving and restoring our cultural and historic landmarks."


Sound harmless enough doesn't it?

But you may ask yourself, why include the fraudulant climate change information in the agenda to begin with?

Well according to a speech given by Ken Salazar in 2009 in front of 12,000 young people, that is the point. During his speech he says:

(00:18)You gathered here with powershift 09 as young people from the ages of 18-30 you are the engines of change, you are the engines of change.

I'm here tonight for Barack Obama because he is an agent of change.

But we can not accomplish the change we need to accomplish for our world, for our country, for our communities, for all of you, for all of our families unless we have the young people of our country and the world involved. Do you agree with me on that?

We need your help because we are living in some difficult and extraordinary times. There are some who would say in these difficult challenges that we face across America and across our globe that our best days have come and gone. But there are those who look at this moment of crisis as a moment of opportunity for all of us to change the world in a lasting way. And you are going to help us do that. With your help what we will do is create a much more peaceful world that understands our nation doesn't end at our borders but we are one planet and one people. And with your help here what we will do is transform not only the United States of America but the 3rd world of our entire globe into understanding that we together will save our planet. And we will move forward and save our planet as we move forward with the new energy frontier. As we tackle the crisis and difficulties we face with climate change we are going to do that together".(2:25)


At the end of his speech he even announces the creation of the 21st Century Conservation Youth Service Corps.

Here is the Video:


Ken Salazar speaks at Power Shift 09 Conference by JTMPVids

So it would seem that the Obama Adminsitration's Idea of 'Conservation' is actually to Brainwash your kinds into believing in Global Warming so that they can become 'Engines of Change'.

Now some of you may not be concerned because it appears that this is a Voluntary Youth Corps and if you don't want your child involved in this Government Brainwashing you won't have to.

Think Again.

According to the America's Great Outdoors Youth Fact Sheet referenced to by Secretary Salazar in the first video, the 21st Century Conservation Youth Service Corps and the Obama Administration will be working with several other agencies including the Department of Education:

"Cultivate stewardship and appreciation of America’s natural, cultural, and historic resources through innovative awareness‐raising partnership initiatives and through education.

 Work with Let’s Move Outside! to raise public awareness that experiencing America’s great outdoors is fun, easy, and healthy.

 Work with the Department of Education and other federal agencies to align and support programs that advance awareness and understanding of nature’s benefits for clean air and clean water..

 Support and expand existing federal programs that emphasize place‐based, experiential learning, including: the National Park Service’s Parks as Classrooms and Junior Ranger programs; U.S.Forest Service’s Children’s Forests, and Bureau of Land Management’s Take it Outside and Hands on the Land programs."


The Administration even intends to work with the First Lady's Organization Let's Move to spread the word about being an "Engine of Change".

I thought Michelle was only worried about my kid being fat, but now it appears she thinks my kid needs some "reeducation" as well.

Even after all of this information, there may still be those of you out there asking What is wrong with a Youth Conservation Corps where kids can learn about nature and take part in protecting earth's natural resources?

Nothing. As a matter of fact the Federal Government already has a Youth Conservation Corps program called the YCC. In the YCC kids learn:

"new skills while conducting work projects to help restore and protect the natural, cultural, and historic resources of your national parks such as removing exotic or invasive plants; constructing or repairing boardwalks, bridges, trails, campsites, fences; teach environmental education programs, and habitat preservation."


The fact that the YCC already exists proves that the 21st Century Conservation Youth Service Corps is just a blatant attempt by the Obama Administration to influence children into the 'global warming'way of thinking.

Because while you and I may fight tooth and nail against "Big Government" legislation disguised as ways to fight 'Global Warming'. The progressives are patient and figure if you and I won't "Change" our way of thinking to believe in Global Warming....

Your Children Will.
