Why Does the Teamsters Union Appear to Be Flying Its Union Flag Above the U.S. One Outside the

A photo depicting what appears to be the Teamsters Union flag improperly flying above the American flag outside the union’s D.C. headquarters on Tuesday was sent to TheBlaze, and the story of how a Marine veteran who tried to bring it to the group’s attention was treated is sure to raise eyebrows.

The photo was taken by the Marine at approximately 2:10 pm ET and sent to TheBlaze by his brother. Both have requested anonymity for fear of retaliation by the union.This is the picture:

Gunny G: Yeah, “The Folks” Have Been Mentioning This… ~ Warning Signs: Fear, Everywhere, Fear

November 24, 2012 3 comments

If my emails and the headlines I am reading indicate anything, there is widespread fear among Americans that something terrible has occurred with the reelection of President Obama. Not all Americans, though. Those who voted for Obama appear to remain oblivious despite the threat of a “fiscal cliff” or the new taxes in Obamacare that will kick in on January 2nd.

We have a Secretary of the Treasury, Timothy, Geithner, calling for an end to debt ceilings, apparently believing that America can continue to borrow money to pay for the interest on its escalating debt, now pegged at $16 trillion and growing daily. The U.S. borrows $4 billion a day. Anyone with a credit card knows that their payments increase as they struggle to deal with their personal debt. Eventually they either declare bankruptcy or turn to companies that negotiate a payment to release them.

If America was to default on its debt, the dollar, already in free fall, would be worth nothing. We would be bartering shiny beads and anything else to buy food and other necessaries. We would become Zimbabwe where you need a million of their dollars to buy a loaf of bread.

The disappearance of Teamsters union boss Jimmy Hoffa remains one of America’s most enduring mysteries.

But now, nearly four decades after Hoffa vanished, his driver has claimed he knows where he is buried – and how he got there.

Marvin Elkind said Hoffa was killed by a mob enforcer and buried in the foundations of the towering General Motors’ HQ in Detroit, Michigan.

OBAMA’S ARMY…

November 8, 2011 1 comment

While running for the presidency, Barack Obama made a mysterious and bizarre campaign promise.

He said that as president he would create “a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the U.S. military, to advance his “objectives” for America.

The astonishing announcement, made July 2, 2008, to an audience in Colorado Springs, was ignored by virtually the entire media – except WND. Nobody bothered to ask Obama specifically what he meant, or how he could possibly assemble and fund such a massive civilian army, or why – and he never spoke of it again.

Fast-forward to late 2011.

“President Obama, this is your army! We are ready to march! Let’s take these son-of-a-b*tches out …!”

That was Teamsters union president James Hoffa, addressing a large Labor Day rally at which Obama also spoke, proclaiming brazenly what leftist radicals have long understood: America’s largest labor unions – especially the huge government employee unions like the 3-million-member National Education Association and 2-million-member Service Employees International Union – provide battalions of ground troops in the ongoing war to “fundamentally transform” America into a socialist utopia.

“But wait,” you might ask. “I know most unions lean left, some engage in street tactics and their dues strongly support Democrats.

But what about Obama’s statement that his civilian army would be ‘well-funded’ by the government?”

As the scathing November 2011 issue of Whistleblower proves, “OBAMA’S ARMY” is very large – and very well-funded.

Jimmy Hoffa and Feds Scheme to Control Teamsters

October 13, 2011 2 comments

Fred Gegare, who is challenging Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa in elections this month to head up the transport union, says that Hoffa and the US government are colluding to control the union by the use of intimidation.

If true, the allegations could mean that 50 years of work trying to rid unions of mob influence has come to an end.

Hoffa and the Justice Department, says Gegare, have abused a decades-old consent decree, “which was once used to remove mobsters two decades ago, [but] is now being used to target [Hoffa’s] critics” through a “rogue investigative unit set up by the decree.”

The result, according to…..

Jimmy Hoffa junior: everything that is wrong with the Labor Movement � Coach is Right:

Calling Americans “Sons of Bitches” and threatening to “take us out” is entirely in line with the low rent character of Jimmy Hoffa junior.

Having been raised at the knee of a criminal who specialized in extortion theft and betrayal of those who depended on him, Hoffa is a rotten apple who did not fall far from the poison tree.

Since his rise to power…………….

Hoffa Does Not Speak for Working Americans

September 9, 2011 Leave a comment

Henry Ford, the creator of the United States’ affluent working middle class, identified Mr. Hoffa as what he is decades before Hoffa’s birth:

A spokesman who does not work in the shop, who does not work in any shop, whose sole ambition perhaps is never again to have to work in a shop, is usually the “bargainer,” and it is from what he says or does that many employers draw their opinion of the men in the shop (Ford Ideals, 1922).

…Mr. Hoffa also accused the Tea Party of “waging a war on workers,” which reinforces Ford’s advice that workers need to identify their friends and enemies very carefully. Again per Ford Ideals (1922):

It is a truth which every American workman ought to know is that 95 percent of the agitation which they see around them does not grow up out of the working people, but it comes down through hired agitators from the would-be capitalistic rulers who want to use the workmen themselves to break down the very industries on which the workmen depend, in order that then the workmen may be thrown on their tender mercies.

The agenda of Mr. Hoffa’s friend Barack Obama includes the wholesale destruction of high-wage jobs exactly as Ford has described. Mr. Obama, and not the Tea Party, has declared war on the coal industry and therefore on miners who, unlike Mr. Hoffa, actually perform blue-collar work and earn good pay for doing it. Mr. Obama’s running mate Mr. Biden backed this up by saying openly that he wanted no new coal plants in America, but only in China — where they will supply cheap energy with which Chinese manufacturers can take even more jobs away from working Americans.

Tea party group to Hoffa: Resign!

Tea party group to Hoffa: Resign! Matthew Boyle – The Daily Caller 28 mins ago

After Teamsters union president Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. called for a “war” against Republicans and tea partiers on Monday, one tea party group is calling for the union leader to resign.

“Calls to violence can never be acceptable in this civil society,” the Rockford, Illinois tea party group said in a statement. “Hoffa’s remarks were made in an introduction to Obama speaking to Auto Workers and Unions in Detroit and this sort of angry, hateful, call to violence should be repudiated by the President with a call from the President to ask Hoffa to resign his very public position of influence.”

While warming up a Labor Day crowed in Detroit before a speech by President Obama, Hoffa Jr. said unions need to pick a fight with tea partiers and congressional Republicans.

“President Obama, this is your army,” Hoffa Jr. declared. “We are ready to march. Let’s take these sons of bitches out and take America back to where America we belong.”

The Rockford tea party called Hoffa’s comments “incendiary and dangerous.”

“If even one member of the Tea Party is harmed by anyone after Hoffa’s call to violence, then Hoffa should be held accountable by the Justice System and Charged appropriately,” the group said.
