“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.

An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.

A murderer is less to fear.”

GOP Convention of 1856 in Philadelphia

Republican Platform of 1856

Ominous talk of pending civil war was rampant, and there was a real feeling of national crisis when Republicans gathered to choose their first presidential candidate at Philadelphia’s Musical Fund Hall in mid June.

Violent civil conflict in “bleeding Kansas” was polarizing the nation. In fact, it was the appeasement of slave interests through the Kansas-Nebraska and Fugitive Slave acts that gave birth to the party.

The new Republican Party was born in 1854 at a meeting in Ripon, Wisconsin. Abolitionists and those opposed to extension of slavery gathered to protest the Kansas-Nebraska Act, which opened territory to slavery that had been forbidden by the old Missouri Compromise of 1820.

The new party was an umbrella that took in members of the rapidly disintegrating Whig Party, abolitionists, Free-Soilers and anti-slavery Democrats.

It was certainly a regional party — a party of the North and the West. The Evening Bulletin declared it was “somewhat astonished” by the appearance at the convention of delegates from Kentucky, Delaware, Virginia and North Carolina. “We had supposed in accordance with the popular impression that there would be no delegations from any southern or slave states.”

The three-day convention kicked off on June 17. The Bulletin noted: “Our town is again alive with the bustle and excitement of a grand convention. The hotels are crowded to the highest flight with politicians of many shades.”

The Democrats had met earlier in Cincinnati, and after 17 ballots selected Pennsylvanian James Buchanan as its standard-bearer. Buchanan, declared a Richmond, Va., newspaper, “had never uttered a word which could pain the most sensitive Southern heart.” The party platform supported “popular sovereignty” for settling the question of slavery in new territories. And the party vowed to resist “in renewing in Congress or out of it, the agitation of the slavery question.”

Prior to the Republican convention, city Democrats held a massive rally in front of Independence Hall on June 10. Illinois Sen. Stephen Douglas declared the nation was facing the most important election since 1800.

This was a theme heard constantly. The nation was in crisis; the election would determine the outcome. The Evening Bulletin declared: “It has been correctly remarked that probably a more important convention than the one in question has not been assembled in our city, perhaps not the country, since the days of 1776. The relations of the opposing political parties have aroused a gravity and importance hitherto unknown.”

The convention’s presiding officer Col. Henry Lane of Indiana declared, “We have assembled at the most important crisis in our post-revolutionary history.”

Designed by renowned architect William Strictland, Musical Fund Hall on Locust Street near 8th opened in 1824. It was the site of the convention. It could seat 1,200; it’s acoustics were exceptional. However, the year following the GOP convention the concert hall was surpassed by the opening of the grand Academy of Music on Broad Street.

About 600 delegates attended the convention. More than 100 newspaper reporters were seated at tables in the front of the auditorium.

The delegates got right down to business the first day by adopting a platform. The key plank was firm opposition to the extension of slavery. “It is the duty of Congress to prohibit in the territories those twin relics of barbarism, polygamy and slavery.” The polygamy reference was aimed at the Mormon settlement in Utah territory.

Then the talk turned to a presidential candidate. The names of Salmon P. Chase of Ohio and U.S. Sen. William H. Seward of New York had been put forward prior to the convention. Both were strong anti-slavery men, both would become important members of Lincoln’s cabinet, but neither seemed to have the burning desire or political backing to win the presidency in 1856.

Pennsylvania was solidly behind 71-year-old U.S. Supreme Court Justice John McLean, a cautious, conservative type with a long-standing desire to be president. He didn’t seem to be a true antislavery Republican but was popular with old Whigs and American “Know Nothing”

Without a doubt, the man with the strongest backing was 43-year-old retired Army officer John C. Fremont. “The Trail Blazer” was a national hero for his five courageous crossings of the Rocky Mountains and his leadership role in wresting California from Mexico. He had served briefly as U.S. senator from California. Though born and raised in the South, Fremont opposed slavery. Mostly it was name recognition and not offending any of the party factions that made Fremont the front-runner.

An informal ballot on the first day showed Fremont with 369 delegates to McLean’s 196. The formal ballot came the next day with Fremont pulling 530 votes to McLean’s 37. “When the vote was announced a scene of the wildest disorder, the most enthusiast excitement and the most decided approbation followed,” wrote a Bulletin reporter. There were nine cheers for Fremont, nine cheers for California, nine for the union and a final nine cheers for Kansas.

There was real competition for the office of vice president. Fifteen names were put forward in an informal ballot. The leading candidate was William L. Dayton, a former senator from New Jersey.

The Public Ledger reported: “A delegate from Illinois nominated Abraham Lincoln of Illinois. He would only say he was a good fellow, a firm friend of freedom and an old line Whig.

“Mr. Archer of Illinois spoke in favor of Mr. Lincoln, whom he had known since childhood and who was a pure patriot. He thought Lincoln would carry Illinois beyond a doubt for Fremont; Illinois would be safe without him but doubly safe with him.

“Judge Spaulding wished to ask the question, `Can Mr. Lincoln fight?’
“Archer: ‘Yes sir, he is a son of Kentucky and a tall man, whichever way you can fix it.'”

The New York Times gave Archer’s reply to the question a bit differently: “Yes! Have I told you he was born in Kentucky? He’s strong mentally; he’s strong physically. He’s strong every way.”

On the informal ballot, Lincoln received 110 votes to Dayton’s 259. But in the formal vote, Dayton had it sewed up and Illinois withdrew Lincoln’s name from consideration.

With the important business done, the delegates and Republican supporters held a mass rally.

“On the outside of the hall and immense crowd was gathered. The steps were transformed into a speakers platform and addresses delivered by various speakers,” said the Bulletin.

Banners flew everywhere bearing the slogan: Free Speech. Free Press. Free Soil. Free Men.

Fremont and Victory.” An anti-slavery branch of the American (Know Nothing) Party meeting in New York threw its support behind Fremont and Dayton.

The site of that first Republican convention, Musical Fund Hall, still stands on Locust Street.

It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. After its demise as a music hall, it served as a union hall, basketball arena and cigar warehouse. It stood empty and forlorn for nearly two decades, dangerously deteriorated and threatened with demolition. Developers purchased the historic derelict in 1980 for $25,000 and restored it as an apartment house

Republican Platform of 1856

Return to 1856 Convention

This Convention of Delegates, assembled in pursuance of a call addressed to the people of the United States, without regard to past political differences or divisions, who are opposed to the repeal of the Missouri Compromise; to the policy of the present Administration; to the extension Slavery into Free Territory; in favor of the admission of Kansas as a Free State; of restoring the action of the Federal Government to the principles of Washington and Jefferson; and for the purpose of presenting candidates for the offices of President and Vice-President, do

Resolved: That the maintenance of the principles promulgated in the Declaration of Independence, and embodied in the Federal Constitution are essential to the preservation of our Republican institutions, and that the Federal Constitution, the rights of the States, and the union of the States, must and shall be preserved.

Resolved: That, with our Republican fathers, we hold it to be a self-evident truth, that all men are endowed with the inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and that the primary object and ulterior design of our Federal Government were to secure these rights to all persons under its exclusive jurisdiction; that, as our Republican fathers, when they had abolished Slavery in all our National Territory, ordained that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law, it becomes our duty to maintain this provision of the Constitution against all attempts to violate it for the purpose of establishing Slavery in the Territories of the United States by positive legislation, prohibiting its existence or extension therein. That we deny the authority of Congress, of a Territorial Legislation, of any individual, or association of individuals, to give legal existence to Slavery in any Territory of the United States, while the present Constitution shall be maintained.

Resolved: That the Constitution confers upon Congress sovereign powers over the Territories of the United States for their government; and that in the exercise of this power, it is both the right and the imperative duty of Congress to prohibit in the Territories those twin relics of barbarism — Polygamy, and Slavery.

Resolved: That while the Constitution of the United States was ordained and established by the people, in order to “form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty,” and contain ample provision for the protection of the life, liberty, and property of every citizen, the dearest Constitutional rights of the people of Kansas have been fraudulently and violently taken from them.

Their Territory has been invaded by an armed force;

Spurious and pretended legislative, judicial, and executive officers have been set over them, by whose usurped authority, sustained by the military power of the government, tyrannical and unconstitutional laws have been enacted and enforced;

The right of the people to keep and bear aims has been infringed.

Test oaths of an extraordinary and entangling nature have been imposed as a condition of exercising the right of suffrage and holding office.

The right of an accused person to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury has been denied;

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, has been violated;

They have been deprived of life, liberty, and property without due process of law;

That the freedom of speech and of the press has been abridged;

The right to choose their representatives has been made of no effect;

Murders, robberies, and arsons have been instigated and encouraged, and the offenders have been allowed to go unpunished;

That all these things have been done with the knowledge, sanction, and procurement of the present National Administration; and that for this high crime against the Constitution, the Union, and humanity, we arraign that Administration, the President, his advisers, agents, supporters, apologists, and accessories, either before or after the fact, before the country and before the world; and that it is our fixed purpose to bring the actual perpetrators of these atrocious outrages and their accomplices to a sure and condign punishment thereafter.

Resolved, That Kansas should be immediately admitted as a state of this Union, with her present Free Constitution, as at once the most effectual way of securing to her citizens the enjoyment of the rights and privileges to which they are entitled, and of ending the civil strife now raging in her territory.

Resolved, That the highwayman’s plea, that might makes right,” embodied in the Ostend Circular, was in every respect unworthy of American diplomacy, and would bring shame and dishonor upon any Government or people that gave it their sanction.

Resolved, That a railroad to the Pacific Ocean by the most central and practicable route is imperatively demanded by the interests of the whole country, and that the Federal Government ought to render immediate and efficient aid in its construction, and as an auxiliary thereto, to the immediate construction of an emigrant road on the line of the railroad.

Resolved, That appropriations by Congress for the improvement of rivers and harbors, of a national character, required for the accommodation and security of our existing commerce, are authorized by the Constitution, and justified by the obligation of the Government to protect the lives and property of its citizens.

Resolved, That we invite the affiliation and cooperation of the men of all parties, however differing from us in other respects, in support of the principles herein declared; and believing that the spirit of our institutions as well as the Constitution of our country, guarantees liberty of conscience and equality of rights among citizens, we oppose all legislation impairing their security.

ATTENTION:YOU WILL HEAR AMAZING GRACE PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND

THE DEMOCRAT PARTY AND IT’S POLITICAL/COALITION/ ALLIES ALL WITH THE SAME AGENDA

Who is behind behind Wisconsin protests?

Communist/Socialist/Marxist

One of the main groups organizing the Wisconsin union protests is a spinoff from an activist academy modeled after Marxist community organizer Saul Alinsky and described as teaching tactics of direct action, confrontation and intimidation.

President Obama once funded that academy – the radical Midwest Academy. He has been closely tied to the group’s founder, socialist activist Heather Booth.

Obama also is closely tied to scores of other radicals behind the Wisconsin opposition protesting Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal for most state workers to pay 12 percent of their health care premiums and 5.8 percent of their salary toward their own pensions.

Walker’s proposal reportedly would save $300 million in the next two years for a state that faces a financial crisis amid a $3.6 billion deficit..

A slew of radical groups and unions have been organizing the protests against Walker’s proposal as well as counter protests to a recent tea party rally in support of the governor’s plan.

Obama’s own political machine has aided in organizing protests in Wisconsin

Counter protests were led in part by radical groups like Veterans for Peace, Freedom Road Socialist Organization, and the Workers World Party.

One of the main organizers of the recent Wisconsin protests is a group called Moving Wisconsin Forward. An associated group, Citizen Action of Wisconsin, is part of the Moving Wisconsin Forward movement.

Robert Kraig, executive director of Citizen Action of Wisconsin, has been widely quoted in the media as a main protest organizer and opposition leader.

Citizen Action of Wisconsin, part of a larger national Citizen Action chain, sits in a coalition with Americans for Financial Reform, which is led by Midwest founder Booth.

Indeed, Citizen Action is a spinoff of Midwest Academy.

‘Redistribution of wealth and power’

Midwest founder Booth has stated building a ”progressive majority” would help for ”a fair distribution of wealth and power and opportunity.”

Booth founded Midwest in the 1970s with her husband, Paul Booth, a founder and the former national secretary of Students for a Democratic Society, the radical 1960s anti-war movement from which William Ayers’ domestic Weather Underground terrorist organization splintered.

The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided capital to the Midwest Academy. WND was first to report Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside Ayers.

In 1999, Booth’s Midwest Academy received $75,000 from the Woods Fund. In 2002, with Obama still serving on the Woods Fund, Midwest received another $23,500 for its Young Organizers Development Program.

Midwest describes itself as “one of the nation’s oldest and best-known schools for community organizations, citizen organizations and individuals committed to progressive social change.”

It later morphed into a national organizing institute for an emerging network of organizations known as Citizen Action.

Discover the Networks describes Midwest as “teach[ing] tactics of direct action, confrontation, and intimidation.”

Camp Obama

WND was first to report Jackie Kendall, executive director of the Midwest Academy, was on the team that developed and delivered the first Camp Obama training for volunteers aiding Obama’s campaign through the 2008 Iowa Caucuses.

Camp Obama was a two-to-four day intensive course run in conjunction with Obama’s campaign aimed at training volunteers to become activists to help Obama win the presidential election.

Earlier this week, Obama’s Organizing for America sent out a mass e-mail it will train a new team of summer organizers.

“The Summer Organizing Fellowship is a grassroots program that aims to put boots on the ground and help foster a new generation of leaders – not just to help win elections, but to strengthen our democracy in communities across the country,” the blast e-mail said.

Aside from helping to fund Midwest, Obama has been tied to Booth in other ways. In August 1998, Obama participated in a panel discussion following the opening performance in Chicago of the play “The Love Song of Saul Alinsky,” a work described by the Chicago Sun-Times as “bringing to life one of America’s greatest community organizers.”

Obama participated in the discussion alongside other Alinskyites, including Booth, political analyst Aaron Freeman, Don Turner of the Chicago Federation of Labor and Northwestern University history professor Charles Paine.

“Alinsky had so much fire burning within,” stated local actor Gary Houston, who portrayed Alinsky in the play. “There was a lot of complexity to him. Yet he was a really cool character.”

Booth herself is a notorious radical community activist and self-described dedicated disciple of Alinsky, of whom she says: “Alinsky is to community-organizing as Freud is to psychoanalysis.”

Booth’s vision of uniting various left-leaning organizations and factions also has been the subject of her two books, “Toward a Radical Movement and Citizen Action” and “The New American Populism.”

Other radicals behind Wisconsin rallies

The keynote speaker at last week’s “Moving Wisconsin Forward” rally was John Nichols, who identifies himself as a “progressive” writer.

Nichols co-authored four books and a number of major articles with Marxist activist Robert W. McChesney, founder of the George Soros-funded Free Press.

McChesney has called for the dismantlement “brick-by-brick” of the U.S. capitalist system, with America being rebuilt as a socialist society.

Free Press openly lobbies for move government control of the news media and Internet. It has been closely tied to the Obama administration.

As WND first reported Ben Scott, the State Department’s recently appointed policy adviser for innovation, was policy director at Free Press. Scott authored several articles with McChesney.

The board of Free Press has included a slew of radicals, such as Obama’s former “green jobs” czar Van Jones, who resigned after it was exposed he founded a communist organization.

Obama’s “Internet czar,” Susan P. Crawford, spoke at a Free Press’s May 14, 2009, “Changing Media” summit in Washington, D.C.

Crawford’s pet project, OneWebNow, lists as “participating organizations” Free Press and the controversial Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN.

Crawford and Kevin Werbach, who co-directed the Obama transition team’s Federal Communications Commission Review team, are advisory board members at Public Knowledge, a George Soros-funded public interest group.

In February 2009 McChesney wrote in a column, “In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick-by-brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles.”

Communists into union protest organizer

Another main Wisconsin protest organizer has been the AFL-CIO, the nation’s largest union.

In November , Obama gave the presidential Medal of Freedom – the nation’s highest civilian honor – to John Sweeney, the AFL-CIO’s president emeritus who retired last year.

Sweeney is a socialist activist and a card-carrying member of the Democratic Socialists of America, or DSA, the principal American affiliate of the Socialist International. The DSA has demonstrated a close relationship with Obama over the years.

Sweeney is a member of the DSA’s Boston chapter. He served as president of AFL-CIO from 1995 until his retirement last September.

He previously served for four terms as president of the controversial Service Employees International Union, or SEIU. During his administration, Sweeney famously aligned the SEIU with ACORN and other leftist groups.

Activist and author Joel Kotkin, a fellow at the Progressive Policy Institute, observed how Sweeney brought communists into his union leadership.

“The public-sector unions have pushed the entire labor movement to the left,” he said. “The [SEIU] has embraced organizations with a New Left origin, such as ACORN and Cleveland’s Nine to Five, and has even set up its own gay and lesbian caucus. … The rise of these unions led to the elevation of SEIU’s boss, John Sweeney, to head of the labor federation.

“No George Meaney-style bread-and-butter unionist, Sweeney is an advocate of European-style democratic socialism,” said Kotkin. “He has opened the AFL-CIO to participation by delegates openly linked to the Communist Party, which enthusiastically backed his ascent. The U.S. Communist Party [CPUSA] says it is now ‘in complete accord’ with the AFL-CIO’s program. ‘The radical shift in both leadership and policy is a very positive, even historic change,’ wrote CPUSA National Chairman Gus Hall in 1996 after the AFL-CIO convention.”

Upon assuming the office of the AFL-CIO in 1995, Sweeney was quick to rescind one of the union’s founding rules that banned Communist Party members and loyalists from leadership positions within the federation and its unions. Sweeney welcomed Communist Party delegates to positions of power in his federation.

Linda Chavez and Daniel Gray, in their book “Betrayal: How union bosses shake down their bosses and corporate America,” state Sweeney placed a number of DSA allies in his union office.

The DSA’s official website carries an endorsement from Sweeney: “I’m proud to a member of a movement for change that puts the cause of working people at the heart of the matter.”

Elderly ‘Teabaggers’ Not Dying ‘Fast Enough’ Laments Libtalker Mike Papantonio

Looks like yet another left-winger missed the meme on the New Civility.

Attorney and “Ring of Fire” radio show co-host Mike Papantonio, guest-hosting on Ed Schultz’s radio program yesterday, revealed two things — he hates old people and wants tea party retirees to hurry up and die.

Don’t take my word for it, listen to Papantonio’s remarks after a caller said he saw “one of these baggers” push a woman during dueling protests over the weekend in Madison, Wisc. (audio here)-

CALLER: And he pushed the woman and, you know, I don’t know what caused that or whatever but, two guys, you know, got on him and just grabbed him and took him out of the way and told him to go back to your area, you know, they didn’t …

PAPANTONIO: Go back to the old folks’ home.

CALLER: Well, exactly, you know.

PAPANTONIO: That’s what you have here. Look, here, let’s not miss this, this is a generational war.

You have students at universities that are showing up, you have these senile old boneheads that are ol-, I mean, check, look at the pictures, I don’t even have to say, look at the pictures, Rich. Run any film, who is there for the teabaggers?!

The people that are being paid for by the Koch brothers are there for the teabaggers, but take a look at the age discrepancy. They’ve used our school system. They’ve used our infrastructure. So the American Majority is busing these old feeble nuts to there and so they’re called, do you realize there’s, there’s a, calling our teachers pigs.

Calling our teachers pigs and the teachers take it and that’s OK, that’s what they oughta do because you know what? The more light you shine on these senile, look, you know (laughs) truthfully, they’re the last days of their lives, they really are, these old, fuddie-duddies or curmudgeons are at the last days of the lives and you have students there that are in the protest that say, well look, we want to have the same thing you have.

We would like to have infrastructure. We’d like to be able to educate our children. We’d like the same quality of life that we gave you. And unfortunately, you know, I guess the bad news is they’re not moving through fast enough because we can keep people alive a long time with good medication. But that’s who you have showing up as teabaggers.

Followed by Papantonio’s guest, Daily Beast reporter Rick Outzen, saying with a laugh, “Just a few funerals away from a good government.”

So much for the elderly as a respected constituency to liberals. More like elders who share their politics

Gary Gatehouse Comments

This left wing limp wristed so called talk show host Mike Papatonio, is in my own opinion a perfect illustration of what the National Education Association and our Socialist Indoctrination Clinics (Public Schools) have succeeded in doing,that being establishing socialism,disrespect,ignorance and hate into the minds of of those (not all) who attended Socialist indoctrination Clinics.

He is a true socialist,speaking in socialist tongues,using socialist buzz words, using deogatory remarks and terms to describe the “Tea Party Movement” (teabaggers is homosexual reference to a particular disgusting act homosexuals perform)

He has no respect for older individuals, he is a whiner,a complainer, but most of all he is a DAMN SOCIALIST!!!

Who has probably never done a damn thing to help his country,serve his country, in my opinion he is a sorry excuse for an American Citizen!

23 Feb

With his direct support of the public worker union’s battle against the freely elected state leaders of Wisconsin, President Barack Obama makes clear his continued devotion to his community agitator past, and his open disdain for responsible law and order in America.

If any doubt remained regarding Barack Obama’s priorities as President of the United States, those doubts were abruptly eliminated this past week. President Obama was, is, and will remain, a community organizer. It is all he has known, and it now appears, is all he truly knows how to do.

As state governments across the nation grapple with ever worsening budget shortfalls, Barack Obama submits a national budget that adds another trillion dollars to the deficit. As governors place all options on the proverbial table in dealing with their respective budget demands, Barack Obama continues the policies of economic suicide.

Enter Wisconsin, and its Republican governor Scott Walker.

With his state buckling under the weight of public employee salaries and benefits, Walker has suggested state workers pay up to 5.8% of their salaries toward their pension plans. Presently, these same workers pay almost nothing – those plans are paid almost entirely by Wisconsin taxpayers. Walker has also requested public employees in Wisconsin pay up to $200 toward their healthcare plans – plans that are of very high quality that also makes them more expensive.

Having already set union leaders into full-on outrage mode, Governor Walker then went even further, suggesting that while public employees could continue to utilize collective bargaining for salaries, they should not be allowed to do so for benefits. Walker is hoping to help coordinate a shift in Wisconsin’s state healthcare and pension plans to programs that are far more affordable, but doing so under the present collective bargaining agreement would make such a shift near impossible, thus leaving Wisconsin taxpayers hostage to the ever-increasing demands of the now radicalized public sector unions.

Enter President Barack Obama.

Obama, as president, should have very little to say regarding a conflict between a state governor and public employees. But unlike past presidents, Barack Obama’s life’s work has been that of agitation – with labor unions as a primary means of festering that agitation into outright conflict. It is who he is at heart, and having been elected President of the United States appears to have left that fact entirely undiminished.

And so, speaking as President of the United States, Barack Obama declared the Wisconsin dispute an “assault against unions.” Such inflammatory language, while shocking by presidential standards, is just the kind of language Barack Obama and his radicalized liberalism has been using for decades. In giving his presidential support for the labor unions, whose members are now in violation of their own worker contracts, who have threatened lawmakers, who have likened a popular governor to Adolph Hitler simply because that governor is attempting to balance a budget as his own state constitution requires, President Obama has become the sedition president. Obama now lends support and financial backing against law and order in favor of union demands.

Obama’s own political action committee, Organizing for America has been sending support to the Wisconsin protesters, as well as additional support to other union protests across the nation. So too has the Democratic National Committee.

To find the reasoning behind an American president becoming so personally involved in a labor dispute among state unions and a governor, look no further than this insightful quote from Barack Obama from 2008:

“We’re ready to play offense for organized labor. It’s time we had a president who didn’t choke saying the word ‘union.’ A president who strengthens our unions by letting them do what they do best: organize our workers.”

Perhaps President Obama would do well to study his own Democratic Party history with another quote from none other than Franklin D Roosevelt, who gave a dire warning of the inherent and very serious dangers of allowing public sector workers to unionize:

“I want to emphasize my conviction that militant tactics have no place” in the public sector. “A strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government.”

By lending both his support and political machine to assist the Wisconsin labor unions, Barack Obama is doing the very thing FDR warned of – obstructing the operations of Government. President Obama is complicit in this act – a president who has utterly repudiated the primary duties of the office of president so that he may continue to act as a simpleton community organizer, for sadly it would appear that remains all that Obama truly knows…

Gary Gatehouse comments

With all that is going on in Wisconsin,Indiana,Ohio,with the National Education Association Union (Teachers socialist agenda union should be their title) it is evident that this battle has hit home with the Socialist Democrats, it has thrown a wrench into their plans of CHANGE, that being changing America to a country of SOCIALISM.

Obama has shown his true colors once again,,he is a Marxist trained from his days at home,his exposure to communism in college, his south side of Chicago community organizer days, his exposure to Saul Alinsky a Marxist activist from Chicago, William Ayers,Rev Wright all socialist,hate America crowd. Is it any wonder that Obama is what he is a MARXIST with a agenda that falls in line with the unions of this country, the Democrat Party.

OBAMA involvement,his comments about Wisconsin about unions testifies that he cares not about our country our constitution,our way of life, he is hell bent on destroying our Republic and rebuilding it as a Socialist state United Socialist States of America-along with his minions in congress,the unions, and the sheeple that call themselves DEMOCRATS he is pushing the left’s Socialist agenda forward

The Code of Ethics that all Public Servants for the State of Wisconsin are bound by

CODE OF ETHICS FOR GOVERNMENT SERVICE (signed into law on July 3, 1980)

ANY PERSON IN GOVERNMENT SERVICE SHOULD:

I. Put loyalty to the highest moral principles and to country above loyalty to persons, party, or Government department.

II. Uphold the Constitution, laws, and regulations of the United States and of all governments therein and never be a party to their evasion.

III. Give a full day’s labor for a full day’s pay; giving earnest effort and best thought to the performance of duties.

IV. Seek to find and employ more efficient and economical ways of getting tasks accomplished.

V. Never discriminate unfairly by the dispensing of special favors

VI. Make no private promises of any kind binding upon the duties of office, since a Government employee has no private word which can be binding on public duty.

VII. Engage in no business with the Government, either directly or indirectly, which is inconsistent with the conscientious performance of governmental duties.

VIII. Never use any information gained confidentially in the performance of government duties as a means for making private profit.

IX. Expose corruption wherever discovered.

X. Uphold these principles, ever conscious that public office is a public trust.

Ladies and Gentlemen of Wisconsin/United States
I ask just one question, ARE THE TEACHERS AND THE DEMOCRATS ELECTED TO STATE OFFICE TO REPRESENT THE PEOPLE OF WISCONSIN HONORING THAT OATH AND THAT CODE OF ETHICS

I THINK NOT,THEY ARE THUMBING THEIR NOSE AT THE GOOD HARD WORKING PEOPLE OF WISCONSIN.

The activities that have taken place this last week illustrate further, Democrats/Socialist absolute lack of respect,honor, they are void of any moral compass, they are nothing more than pawns of the Socialist agenda….
