The Greek protest pictures the Elite Media forgot to show you…

Posted by iusbvision on May 12, 2010

Just who was behind much of those protests and union violence that left buildings smashed, burned and people dead?


Of course this crowd has caused trouble before:

Unions and Communist Activists All Too Happy With Obama-Dodd Financial Takeover Bill

Posted by iusbvision on May 12, 2010

This is also known as the Wall Street Special Favors and Unlimited Bailout Bill. If you ever wonder why Wall Street gives so much more to Democrats than Republicans, this is a good reason why.

From our friend Michael Van Der Galien at News-Reel:

“As thousands of union members converged on Wall Street last week, they were joined in solidarity by Kevin Keating,” writes Capitol Confidential for Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government. “Keating, a photographer on the 1976 movie ‘Harlan County, U.S.A’ and an unabashed communist joined his union brethren in demanding the Obama-Dodd financial takeover bill that would give unions greater ability to takeover the governing boards of companies and drain resources into their own coffers.”

Although Obama doesn’t strike me as a communist himself – I agree with Glenn Beck who calls him a “radical progressive” – it’s crystal clear that communists are suspiciously supportive of his plans; Keating is one of them.

It goes without saying that communists are happy because they realize that the president is “radically transforming” the country. And that should worry all those concerned with preserving democracy, political freedom and, yes, capitalism.

CWA Union Uses Violence Against Two Employees Who Blew Whistle on Union Corruption

Posted by iusbvision on May 12, 2010

Courthouse News Service:

According to the complaint in Brooklyn Federal Court, DiStefano was a member in good standing with the union when in the summer of 2007 a union manager overseeing worked for Verizon on Staten Island told his men that so long as they did three “fiber to premises” jobs each day, they could put in for a full day’s pay no matter how many hours they actually worked.
DiStefano says he refused to participate in the scheme, and told other workers, supervisors and union management that the practice was illegal. When Taravella went to work at the Verizon garage, he says, he expressed the same reservations.
DiStefano and Taravella say revealed the scheme to Verizon’s corporate security in May 2008. From then on, they say, they were subjected to increasing abuse from union brothers, shop stewards and union chiefs.
They claim that Richard Meltz, a union chief, told angry union members to “do whatever you want with those two guys.”
Immediately afterward, the two men say they were brought up on false charges that they had made “discriminatory” gestures” to their co-workers. The case was supported by affidavits signed by many of their union brothers.
As a result, DiStefano and Taravella say, they were “terminated” from the Staten Island garage, relocated, demoted, and placed on bogus “final warnings” due to the false charges of “discrimination” and “harassment” and “making gestures” to their union brothers.
When they complained to superiors, they were told, “You guys did it to yourself,” according to the complaint.
Soon after that, Taravella says he discovered that somebody – allegedly shop steward Manny Rincon – had put a dead rat in his locker.

A month later, a union member called DiStefano a “rat” while hitting him about the face and head, an attack that left him with two herniated discs, he says.
In neither case did the union take action against the alleged perpetrator. Instead, in DiStefano’s case, he says the incident led to his termination for allegedly starting the fight.

The plaintiffs say the union encouragement the violence against them. They say that at an August 2009 meeting, Joe Macaleer and Mike Luzzi, two vice presidents of the Local, told members that the company was “having a lot of problems right now ‘due to a couple of troublemakers,'” and that “We have to learn that we can’t call corporate security because we don’t want those people getting involved in our business.”
The complaint claims that Macaleer said, “I don’t want nobody in this room to call corporate security any more.” [And] “I don’t care if somebody comes to work with a gun saying they’re going to shoot people, you don’t say anything … we have a lot of problems here due to the fact there are ‘spies ‘in the room.” [Ellipsis in complaint.]
Macaleer added, “You know who you are,” while looking directly at the plaintiffs, according to the complaint.
DiStefano and Taravella sued the CWA Local 1101, seeking damages for reckless indifference, assault and battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
They are represented by Ambrose Wotorson of Brooklyn.

Wisconsin solution to the public education problem: Teach kids union history propaganda!

Posted by iusbvision on May 12, 2010

Unionized government education doesn’t care about you, they care about politics, money and power and is there a bigger example of the truth of this than what is happening here. Oh, you doubt me? If we were to take a poll among parents and students about what needs to be done to fix the unionized public school failure, would the answer “not enough focus on the history of the far left labor movement” even make it in the top 100? We both know the answer to that one. But is is number one according to unions who wield political power.

Of course math, science , history, philosophy and civics aren’t in the union’s top priorities judging by the performance.

Via Big Government.com:

It seems Big Labor’s glory days have passed them by and that’s fueling their effort to pass state laws, such as in Wisconsin, ordering the teaching of “the history of organized labor in America and the collective bargaining process,” according to the bill recently signed by Gov. Jim Doyle.

More recently, labor groups in Minnesota have produced materials geared toward public schools that will teach the influence of Big Labor in the state.  Reports Workday Minnesota:

To provide more resources for teaching about workers and labor history, the Labor Education Service has released a new video and website devoted to teaching about the Minneapolis truckers’ strikes of 1934. LES also has embarked on a new student-focused project documenting the history of the state Capitol.

Meanwhile, the AFL-CIO, the American Federation of Teachers, the National Education Association and the United Association for Labor Education have all passed resolutions supporting the expansion of labor-in-the-schools efforts.

One wonders if perhaps, given the fact that American students rank 24th and 25th worldwide in math and science test scores (McKinsey Group), schools should instead focus on teaching the basics and preparing American students for a global economy.

Instead of teaching the history of the isolationist labor unions, maybe teach a course on how America became the best country in the world: through hard work, competition and innovation spurred by capitalism.

Today’s labor movement despises capitalism and would prefer to eliminate foreign imports.

And maybe, just maybe, if we’re going to really teach American history, we should get back to the basics: the Constitution, our Founding Fathers and the commitment from the World War II generation and others that allowed America to be in the position we’re in: free and prosperous.

Instead, students will be required to learn about the history of Big Labor, probably without the ugly but honest details regarding mobsters, graft, corruption, and murders.

More Video Evidence on the Bogus N-Word Accusation at D.C. Tea Party.

Posted by iusbvision on May 12, 2010

Yup, they lied.

It is like this – they made up the N word accusation, but unfortunately for the liars there are a dozens of video’s at every angle of when they said it was, so when caught they told the AP that WE had it all wrong, it was before at another  time. Unfortunately we have many videos of that as well.

Lesson learned, don’t make up lies in the midst of a sea of new media.

Via Big Government.com:

We all know the story by now.  Rep. Andre Carson (D-In) says that he and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga) were assaulted with racial slurs by Tea Party protesters as they walked down the step of the Cannon office building and headed to the Capitol on March 20th.  Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo) also told reporters that he heard the ‘N-word’ as he was walking a few yards behind Rep. Lewis.  “It was like a chorus”, Rep. Cleaver said.

Only problem is:  Rep. Cleaver wasn’t there.  He didn’t walk behind Rep. Lewis coming down the steps of Cannon on the way to the Capitol.  He walked behind Rep. Lewis coming UP the steps of Cannon on the way BACK from the Capitol.

Of course, Rep. Cleaver and Rep. Carson could claim that racial slurs were screamed both times by the Tea Party protesters.  If that’s the case, then they have contradicted their own narrative from two weeks ago when the AP ran a story with the headline:

Wrong video of health protest spurs N-word feud

The entire thesis of that story was that the dumb, right-wing wackos were looking at the wrong video at the wrong time to show that racial slurs didn’t happen.  We’d been looking at a video showing the Congressional Black Caucus walking up the steps of Cannon returning from the Capitol.  But, it is now claimed, the racial slurs were shouted earlier in the day while Rep. Carson and Rep. Lewis were walking to the Capitol.

If last month’s narrative was that there were no racial slurs shouted on the way up the steps of Cannon, then how did Rep. Cleaver hear a chorus of the ‘N-word’?

It seems there’s only one question left to ask:  Who’s lying, Rep. Carson or Rep. Cleaver?  Or… both?

Mark Steyn explains Multiculturalism

Posted by iusbvision on May 12, 2010

Discussing cultural relativism with a cultural relativist is like playing tennis with a guy who says, “Your ace is just a social construct”.

Video – David Horowitz: How Radical Professors Indoctrinate Students

Posted by iusbvision on May 12, 2010

Part I – This video talks about the Academic Bill of Rights and how books on campus are often one sided. IUSB’s own “One Book One Campus” is a prime example.  

Part II – Leftist academics admit that 95% of them are political leftists, “But our study shows that there is no indoctrination going on”. How did they do the study? They went to the leftist professors and asked them “Do you indoctrinate your students?” …. Courses being taught in how to overthrow the U.S. Government etc.

Part III – Horowitz speaks about how some leftist professors admit that there classes are little more than a means of political activism and that goes double for Women’s Studies programs. Students complain that the work of many Republican appointed Justices is not studied in Constitutional Law classes,  instead they are derided. Peace studies professors and departments have no professors of military science and history. Instead the classes are merely leftist political activism:  

Part IV – Horowitz explains how AFT, ASA, AAUP etc. are ran by leftists and if a professor criticized them they will be called all sorts of names. At many of the large universities the worst of the far left professors often dominate in the faculty because they are so vindictive and willing to attack that others just get out of their way:

Part V – Horowitz is grateful for Ward Churchill. Horowitz explains some of the antisemitic bias among leftist faculty and how difficult it is, for even the most academically fraudulent professors, to get fired:

Part VI – The one thing that a university administrator cannot abide is embarrassment. I know because it is the weapon I have used to get IU administrators to simply follow federal law and their own rules. Schools of education are very often the worst when it comes to turning education into indoctrination. William Ayers anyone? Horowitz also discusses the ridiculous behavior of 88 members of the faculty in the Duke Lacrosse case.  

Part VII – Horowitz explains how many “education centers” on campus function like small political parties. Part 7 & 8 Horowitz explains the difference between “free speech” and “academic freedom”

Part VIII –

VIDEO: David Horowitz outs genocidal Muslim Student Association member. UPDATED!

Posted by iusbvision on May 12, 2010

And homeland security is letting these people in and not only that they are encouraged by some radicalized professors.

Via David Horowitz:

MSA member: If I support Hamas, because your question forces me to condemn Hamas.  If I support Hamas, I look really bad.

Horowitz: If you don’t condemn Hamas, obviously you support it.  Case closed.  I have had this experience at UC Santa Barbara, where there were 50 members of the Muslim Students Association sitting right in the rows there.  And throughout my hour talk I kept asking them, will you condemn Hizbollah and Hamas. And none of them would.  And then when the question period came, the president of the Muslim Students Association was the first person to ask a question. And I said, ‘Before you start, will you condemn Hizbollah?’ And he said, ‘Well, that question is too complicated for a yes or no answer.’  So I said, ‘Okay, I’ll put it to you this way.  I am a Jew.  The head of Hizbollah has said that he hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn’t have to hunt us down globally.  For or Against it?

MSA member: For it.

Horowitz: Thank you for coming and showing everybody what’s here.

UPDATE – David Horowitz talks about his experiences on college campus’ with Sean Hannity
