Is Obama Behind Public Union Demonstrations?

Rate this post

In a recent interview on FoxNews, Bill O’Reilly said: “I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that President Obama may be behind the scenes in this Wisconsin brawl. It might be he and his guys directing what happens out there.”
O’Reilly is not prone to paranoia or conspiracy theories. Heck, O’Reilly is not even a birther! LOL
Given Obama’s Feb. 17 characterization of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s efforts to trim the state’s $3.6 billion deficits as an “attack on unions,” the notion that Obama is not just sympathetic to unions but may be orchestrating the demonstrations is not wholly far-fetched.
To make my case, I present you with six exhibits or pieces of evidence.

Exhibit 1:

On January 15, 2008, when Obama was still a mere senator before he was elected president, he said this to the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the fastest growing  labor union in the United States representing about 1.8 million workers:

“[Political candidates] all sing we love the SEIU. The question you’ve got to ask yourselves is do they have it in their gut, do they have a track record of standing alongside you in picket fights, do they have a track record of going after the companies that aren’t letting you organize, do they have a track record of voting the right way but also helping you organize to build more and more power…. I come from an organized background, so I know. I’ve been working with SEIU before I was elected to anything….”

Exhibit 2:

On August 23, 2009, now President Obama once again rallied the SEIU troops:

“Hope and Change is not just the rhetoric of a campaign for me. Hope and Change has been the causes of my life…. We have a lot of good friends of labor who are running in this election. I admire all of them. But the question I do want SEIU to ask yourselves is not who can talk about your agenda, but who can change the politics in Washington so that we can actually make your agenda a reality. And I believe I can do that. But…I can’t do this by myself. That’s why I am not just asking you to trust my ability to change this country, I’m asking you to trust in yourselves. I’m asking you to bet not just on me, I’m asking you to bet on us…. That’s what you did with me in 2004 because I probably wouldn’t be standing here if it hadn’t been for the SEIU endorsement back then….”

Exhibit 3:

Obama and Trumka

Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO, is very close to Obama. Trumka recently said: “I’m at the White House a couple times a week. Two, three times a week. I have conversations everyday with someone in the White House or in the administration. Everyday.”

Stern is the white-haired guy.

Bill O’Reilly points out that this means Trumka, as of January 28 this year, has been to the White House 46 times since Obama was elected. We also know that Andy Stern, former SEIU president, had made 58 visits to the Obama White House.

Exhibit 4:

Organizing for America had planned and sponsored the unions’ “emergency rallies” on February 15 and 16 in Wisconsin. This is what Wikipedia tells us about the organization: “Organizing for America is a community organizing project of the Democratic National Committee. Founded after the presidential inauguration of Barack Obama, the group seeks to mobilize supporters in favor of Obama’s legislative agenda.”

Exhibit 5: is calling for a nationwide march on state houses at noon tomorrow (Saturday, Feb. 26), to counter Wisconsin’s and other states’ efforts to trim multibillion dollar deficits by reining in public employee unions. calls these efforts “Republicans…using the wrecked economy as an excuse to slash vital programs and hurt workers. The American Dream itself is under attack. So we’re helping lead an emergency call for rallies in every state capital this Saturday at noon to support folks in Wisconsin and oppose these attacks, wherever they occur.” is a Progressive Democratic Party political action committee, financed by George Soros, Peter Lewis (of Progressive Auto Insurance), and Linda Pritzker (of the Hyatt hotels).

Exhibit 6:

On February 17, 2011, a Tweet from Bob Woodhouse, the Democratic National Committee’s communication director, said the White House was “proudly” playing a role in the Wisconsin public employee union protest.

  1. Conservatives must draw a line in the sand and uphold principles of fiscal responsibility or the United States is lost. Mr. soetero, SEIU , the NEA, Move On. org, and Organizing for America are all united in their desire to have a progressive socialistic society. One can look at how the SEIU supported Obamacare publicly and privately negotiated waivers. One can look at the NEA and see how fervently they use their union dues to support the political party of the leader’s choice rather than their constituent’s choice. There is now a deep philosophical and political chasm and the population is deciding which side they will stand on. God help us.

  2. He’s behind ALL of it!

  4. Eowyn, I have no doubt his inner circle is directing/monitoring every facet of this.

  5. Oh how I wish the Lame Stream Media would stop drinking the Kool-Aid!

    • They won’t. They were all taught this same template of reality at the University (pick one). It’s who they are as it’s their DNA.

  6. In Exhibit #3, 2nd pic…
    Why have I heard NOTHING on this woman? The white woman, with the blonde hair, Anna Burger, who has been with Obama since the beginning. Is anyone aware that she is?

    Service Employees International Union (SEIU aka Acorn) – secretary-treasurer
    Change to Win – chair

  7. Good Lord!! Where is the outrage? Your examples are more than sufficient to show that our own govt. is against 93% of Americans (only 7% of Americans are union members).
    Need to read a thriller ( ) We are now being forced to choose sides in America so I recommend it. History is finally showing us our true destiny in life.
