Jewish people of a fundamental right that we justly claim for the peopleof Africa and freely accord all other nations of the Globe. It isdiscrimination against Jews, my friend, because they are Jews. In short,it is anti-Semitism... Let my words echo in the depths of your soul: Whenpeople criticize Zionism, they mean Jews - make no mistake about it."

"Imagine having a president whose life work was your work." It was September 2007,and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was challenging members of the Service Employees'International Union (SEIU) to dream the dream of owning a president -- him.Obama, who was seeking the union's endorsement in the upcoming presidential primaries, reminded his enthusiastic crowd that the SEIU had supported him in the past: "All these folks sitting here, right here, they walked doors for me, they made phone calls for me, they turned out the vote for me!"Months after Obama's speech, the SEIU threw $60 million and 100,000 volunteers behind Obama's election effort. The AFL-CIO nearly matched that, with $53.4 millionin election spending -- enough to help put their debt-heavy union into a minor financial crisis. .we need to get the Judicial Branch to do its job. Serial criminaloffenses and crimes; multiple breaches of our Constitution. It's time for implementation of the "checks and balances," which our constitutional republicdemands!! Doc Mr Obama they did not need Zagat speech, the needed to remindedthat what Egypt was before the nazi born Muslim brotherhood destroyed the country.Correct: alBanna and Husseini both collaboraated and were financed by the Nazis.Fully documented. Today, organized labor owns the executive branch of the UnitedStates government. All of its appointees are sympathetic to unions, and some areshameless cheerleaders -- especially Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, whose contributionto the dispute in Wisconsin was to join the picket line and start shouting. "The fight ison," she said in a recent speech. "We work together. We help those embattled statesright now where public employees are under assault."And the union bosses have all the access they could possibly want. Former SEIUPresident Andy Stern, before leaving his job last year, visited the Obama White Housenearly 60 times in less than two years. Richard Trumka, head of the AFL-CIO sinceSeptember 2009, visited the White House 47 times in just over a year, meeting withObama 17 times and with Vice President Joe Biden three times. He boasts that hespeaks to White House officials "every day" -- even on weekends.Given recent revelations of how badly Obama has ignored his own appointees,Trumka appears to have more contact and possibly more influence with Obama thanmost of the president's cabinet secretaries. In a heated moment on the campaign traillast year, President Obama declared, "We're gonna punish our enemies, and we'regonna reward our friends who stand with us." This comment was intended as anexhortation for voters, but it is actually an accurate statement of administration policy.It is also a fundamental principle of "gangster government," which bends and breakslaws to achieve its policy goals, rejects or stretches limits on its own power, andsubordinates the public interest to favored special interests.
