When I wrote my book, The Devil at Our Doorstep, I included the excerpt below from Lowell Ponte’s 2004 article, How Socialist Unions Rule the Democratic Party. I included Ponte’s quote, as I felt it succinctly summarizes “Corporate Campaigns” utilized by Big Labor to pound unsuspecting employees and employers into submission in its desperate attempt to force unionize employees through Card Check. Now, these same tactics are being utilized against Donald Trump, his Administration and the people of the United States — with the goal of impeaching Trump, bringing down the USA, and turning it into a socialist / communist country!
“SEIU and its political, media, and leftwing activist allies conspire to attack a company directly with what they call “Corporate Campaign” or the “death of a thousand cuts.” Like the Furies of Greek mythology, this cabal of attackers harasses and disrupts company activities, sends vicious emails and letters to stockholders, intimidates customers, stalks and frightens employees, files baseless lawsuits, plants false stories with media allies to smear the company’s reputation, and uses hundreds of other tactics to injure the targeted company in every way they can imagine. . . The aim of this concerted swarming attack is to bully and pressure a targeted company into signing an agreement making SEIU the representative of its employees.”
Unable to stem its continuing decline in membership through traditional elections, Big Labor resorted to Corporate Campaigns tactics of intimidation, misinformation, defamation, propaganda, political pressure, media bias and other malicious tactics. Coinciding this with attacks on the targets’ customers, advertisers, and financial supporters to defund the opponent, exert extreme pressure, and, ultimately, to force unionize employees. This is all done as a “necessary” step to stave off extinction. These tactics, which are designed to overwhelm and defeat the target, are explicitly detailed in the SEIU Training Curriculum and Contract Campaign Manual. Big Labor and the Far Left realize this playbook, combined with empathy from the mainstream media — and in some cases control of the mainstream media as exposed in The Devil at Our Doorstep — will result in a win over 95% of the time because most employers and employees will bow to the pressure! This is the same agenda being used against Trump and the USA today for the same reasons.
Following the publication of The Devil at My Doorstep, employees and employers from around the country submitted their own personal real-life “horror” stories based on union “campaign” tactics. These stories are relayed in the sequel The Devil at Our Doorstep. From California to Massachusetts, Michigan to Missouri, Texas to Florida, and back home again to Indiana, its pages explode with the bullying tactics, political cronyism and misuse of members’ dues used by Big Labor to achieve its goals. Stories like the one shared below continue to flow in as the silent majority share their experiences of intimidation and pressure at the hands of Big Labor!
“I thought I would send you a quick update on the “happenings” of the SEIU at our once sleepy little college Dining Services. You might remember that the SEIU won the vote last December by promising the employees the “world” and it was a very close vote. Well as of today they have still not voted on a contract but I hear they are having a meeting on May 22nd (rumor has it that is the contract vote day). I guess it would be too much to ask for them to be up front and actually post that information for all to see! There is still much separation amongst the employees and, when they do have the SEIU representative there, she still huddles “her” people into secret little talks. About four employees who were strong union supporters have either been fired for attendance or have found other jobs leaving us with a big SEIU mess! That would almost close the gap on the vote last December. I can’t believe it has been almost two years since the first SEIU recruiter started lurking in the shadows around my place of work. I don’t understand how they can operate without getting a penny in dues for two years? Wanna hear something funny? She is blaming the fact that there is so much “dissension” in the ranks for not getting all she promised in the contract! I still can’t believe this has happened and I am still just as disillusioned about voting in November.”
“I’m not sure. After 2 settlements and attorney’s fees my employer has $200,000 in completely bogus claims. Now we are just in the stage where the union idiot can come in every Wednesday and Friday and hang stuff on our walls. I finally figured out we can sign a petition against union representation so I printed one off of the internet and I have 10 signatures out of 11 employees. Now I don’t know what to do with it. My boss is terrified of more lawsuits. If it’s like everything else they will file lawsuits saying everyone was coerced into signing it. The NLRB isn’t interested in the truth about anything only pushing the union agenda.”
Union tactics of “death by a thousand cuts,” however, are not limited to the private sector. Big Labor’s use of this strategy was seen in the despicable and unprofessional attacks by public unions on Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, in labor’s domination of bankrupt California’s politics, and against Indiana Republicans during the Right to Work debate (see Indiana Right to Work, the Right Thing to Do!), and in their corrupt influence on the Department of Labor and National Labor Relations Board through the Obama Administration/Democratic Party, George Soros, his group ANTIFA (see Has Antifa put your city in its crosshairs for November 4th?) and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.
Perhaps more concerning, however, is how former President Barack Obama, trained by the SEIU (see Obama and the SEIU Sittin in a Tree), is utilizing these same tactics against President Trump through his group OFA (see How Obama is scheming to sabotage Trump’s presidency and How Obama is Funding the Anti-Trump Resistance). The former President is showing his knowledge of the playbook by blasting President Trump at every turn, using accusatory rhetoric to stir anger against the current Administration. He accuses the President of prejudice against immigrants from Mexico and Islamic countries,” of harming race relations and fostering hate, of lacking concern for health care for all by repealing Obamacare, of destroying the earth by rejecting climate change, of lacking respect for women, and attempting to rob the Middle Class through his support of a National Right to Work Law. In truth It’s All About the Dues Money for Big Labor (see Right to Work: A Basic American Freedom! Obama is scheduled to be in Washington soon at his shadow White House — within two miles of Trump to oversee OFA’s campaign against the President. Past President Obama, the Great Pretender, and his far leftist supporters, including Big Labor, have many things in common that should frighten all Americans:
- They are Narcissists. They believe they are smarter than the rest of us.
- They have no concept how Capitalism and the Free markets work. Even if they cared!
- They utilize defamation, pressure, intimidation, misinformation, misdirection, bribery, jealousy and other malicious tactics to achieve their goals.
- They prey upon the innocent and naïve with the promise of “Social Justice.”
- They are hypocritical in their actions. It is always “do as I say not as I do.”
- They will run over friend or foe to accomplish their agenda as the “ends always justify the means”.
- They believe in redistribution of wealth as it eliminates jealousy, makes people the same and easier to control.
- They attempt to divide the American people by race, gender and sexual preference.
- They believe in socialism/communism/totalitarianism, a one world order, and fundamentally transforming America!
Recent events by Obama, SEIU, Big Labor, Soros and the far Left exhibit striking parallels to the Corporate Campaigns used in the quest for control (see Union Thugs and Non-Americans Bait Citizen To Drive Forward, Mob Attacks). They have the mindset of a dictator — they crave power! They have no respect for the law or our Constitution and will do whatever they feel necessary whether legally or morally acceptable to achieve their mutual goal of total control! The scheduled November 4, 2017 ANTIFA protests across the country are the start of achieving this goal (as seen in Exposing Tyranny starting Nov 4)! These tactics are designed to isolate the target, in this case President Trump and the USA, and destroy it, just like Big Labor’s Corporate Campaigns.
Fortunately President Trump understands you cannot stand by passively and allow attacks to continue without redress. In the case of my company as detailed in The Devil at Our Doorstep, we were able to defeat the SEIU by professionally and truthfully exposing the SEIU’s tactics and uncovering the SEIU’s true character to our employees and customers. Trump must not be afraid to link Obama with persons of questionable character like Andy Stern, George Soros, Jeremiah Wright, and expose their agenda. Remind the American public to judge a person not by what he or she says, but by what they do and with whom they associate. After all, actions speak louder than words!
The ultimate goal of the left is to have President Trump impeached and bring down the United Sates of America’s capitalistic / free market society and turn it into a socialistic / communistic society as revealed in The Great Pretender Wants Control – Conspiracy Continues! and Obama’s O-Cloward-Piven Strategy Is Working! It is imperative on the first anniversary of his Presidency that Donald Trump begin now to employ professional and factual tactics to educate the American Public and expose the lack of character of Obama, Soros, the SEIU, Big Labor and other far left activists if he is going to counteract the “death by a thousand cuts” and remain the 45th President of the United States of America! It is Time for growth, not democratic socialism! We as Americans need to quit being naïve, wake up and understand America, we are at War! Armageddon is at Hand! Please Wake up! It is time to Make America Great Again by supporting President Trump!
