Fox Detroit Does Some Undercover Work-Again

(TownHall H/T)

WJBK in Detroit catches these bailout recipients red handed–again. I’m sure these union workers assumed they had a “right” to party during their lunch breaks:

This time our video shows workers a mile from the plant, but just steps away from a United Auto Workers hall. It’s the same kind of problem at a different location with a new method of having a good time; inhaling lunch before finishing a plant shift.

Chrysler Auto Workers in Trenton Caught Smoking and Drinking During Lunch Breaks:

Joe Biden Says It All~If your in a union and Republican,watch your back

Hate and pressure at work from the left (Freep h/t):

At the Paris Las Vegas Hotel on Friday, Vice President Biden addressed a convention of the International Teamsters, telling the union members to vote Democratic next year.

“And don’t any of you, by the way, any of you guys vote Republican,” the garrulous Vice President started to say, after which he caught himself. “I’m not supposed to say, this isn’t political, I’m not supposed to say this.”

The crowd cheered him on.

“Guys!” Biden continued. “Let me put it this way! Don’t come to me if you do! You’re on your own, Jack!

At another point, the Vice President told the crowd, “Your logo is a horse’s head. Theirs should be the horse’s other end.”

Wisconsins Judge That Temporarily Blocked The Union Bargaining Bill

Please visit and follow the links of these two bloggers…. they did a bang-up job of uncovering some info that NewsBusters passes on:

Cindy at Fairly Conservative and Mary at FreedomEden broke this story yesterday. RedState, Gateway Pundit, and Doug Ross, among others, have helped promulgate it. I’d rate the odds of the establishment press doing anything with the information at nearly zero.

I have a potential tidbit to add.

FreedomEden’s Mary writes: “Jake Sinderbrand, son of Judge Maryann Sumi, poses a bit of a problem for his mother.” Sumi is the county judge who on Friday temporarily blocked implementation of the collective bargaining-related law passed by the Wisconsin legislature and signed by Governor Scott Walker.

Why that matters is after the jump.

You see, Jake Sinderbrand is “a former field manager with the AFL-CIO and data manager for the SEIU State Council.” Both organizations have members who are employed in Wisconsin’s public sector.

That’s already a pretty clear conflict of interest, one would think. My tidbit may add more fuel to the fire.

Maryann Sumi’s husband/partner, as evidenced here and elsewhere, is Carl Sinderbrand (who, as a side note, is also Chairman of the environmental advocacy group Clean Wisconsin).

Visiting web directories (I’m not providing a link lest one accuse me of violating privacy, even thoug Wisconsin lefties do not have a track record of similar respect), one finds that one of Carl Sinderbrand’s three listed physical addresses is the same as Jake Sinderbrand’s; the other two appear to be office building suites. I could not find a web directory physical address for Maryann Sumi, but if she lives in the same home as Carl, it would appear that she also lives in the same home as Jake. This would compound the level of conflicted interests.

Jake’s Facebook page, which reveals that he “worked at Left Field Strategies (Campaign Consultant/Field Strategist),” is a lefty shrine, including a mock-up of Governor Walker as a “Dope,” a sarcastic take-off on the Obama “Hope” picture so popular two years ago:

AP Forgets Rage Against the Machines Guitarist,Tom Morello,Hatred

Newsbusters has this gem for all us Rage fans that HATE their politics:

AP reporter Ryan Foley’s update from Madison on Monday night included details about a rock musician causing the crowd to to roar: “At noon, guitarist Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine took to a stage on the Capitol steps to fire up the crowd. He said he flew in from California to lend his voice to the protest.”

While reporters like Adam Nagourney “worry” out loud that the Wisconsin Republicans are going to look too extreme, AP somehow left out Morello’s truly appalling and extremist stands, like speaking fondly of Philadelphia cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal and the Maoist Shining Path terrorists in Peru. If that didn’t seem pro-violence enough, then there’s Morello praying for the drowning of President Bush in 2007, as reported in the Washington Post:

Onstage, when the Nightwatchman [Morello] sang, “I pray that God himself will come and drown the president if the levees break again,” the Jammin’ Java crowd’s attitude was chilling. People were praying.

You might understand why a liberal reporter wouldn’t want to connect these dots,

School Spending and Union Budgets (Dick Morris and Dennis Prager)

In this first video Dick Morris goes over the legislature control and gubernatorial leadership in about 20 states that Republicans are taking over control of in January. He explains one of the first glaring possibilities of change they will be confronted with and possibly try and truly change (let’s hope so):

Dennis Prager touches on just how much these unions (yes, teachers unions as well) are bankrupting the nation. He references an Economist magazine article that is also referenced in a previous post entitled, “500-Billion Unsecured California Pensions and growing; 3.2 Trillion Nationally” – below, Prager hits the nail on the head in his saying these are deals with the devil:

Union Votes Out Their Jobs? Crazy!

Firearm Blog has some news relating to jobs and unions. The post is entitled, Union negotiations fail. Olin (Winchester) moves 1000 jobs, and is a prime example of the insane policies of the Left. The percentage split below is almost the same as a recent story (Washington Post/ABC News Poll 11-1-10) that notes that union households back the Democratic candidate in their district over the GOP by a 54 to 42 percent margin.

Republican union members, then, almost saved these jobs mentioned below. Almost.

Olin Corp. is moving its Winchester Centerfire plant to Mississippi after the Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers District 9. Union rejected their proposed contract for the second time. reports….


Just 56% voted to reject the contract. From what I have read it does not sound like any of the parties were at fault. Winchester wanted to cut costs and just under half the union employees were willing to accept a wage freeze. A slight majority wanted to rather relocate (and risk their co-workers jobs) rather than earn less in the future. The real loser here is the community of East Alton, IL who are losing a major employer.

Teachers Gone Wild! (This is what Chris Christie is dealing with)

NewsBusters h/t:

Self-styled “investigative journalist” James O’Keefe has released his latest undercover project. He took a hidden camera into a meeting of the New Jersey Education Association, and heard some pretty astounding things. Check out the video below the fold (WARNING: explicit and vulgar content).
