Constructive secession by Red States: Real possibility unless King Barack I is stopped « Coach is Right

October 14, 2013 1 comment

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

 

Patrick J. Buchannan has raised the question asked here fifteen months ago: Is there a peaceful civil secession of Red States underway? Originally raised here in July 2012, we asked if there wasn’t a real possibility of what we described as a “constructive secession” which would accomplish what The Confederacy could not achieve.

As we described the situation those states that have grown tired of the overbearing Barack Obama Administration and see it as no longer intolerable could engage in conduct that would amount to de facto if not a de jure secession from the United States.

Gov. Mitch Daniels and Indiana lawmakers restore gun rights to free men

13 June, 2012 | AWR Hawkins

In an era where many politicians give lip service to gun rights while seeking election and then do their best to undermine those rights once in office, it’s refreshing to see Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and that state’s GOP-led legislature passing laws that restore rights which courts have stripped away from Indiana citizens in recent years.

Liberalism is Terminally Ill

It’s been a pitiful sight – a sad week for progressives and “Big Union” Democrat-shilling thugs. In the wake of Tuesday night’s devastating recall smackdown in Wisconsin, tens of thousands of “Occupy” hippies across the nation have simply been too depressed to get stoned and not look for work.

Barack Hussein Obama promised to transform America with an ill-defined message of change during his 2008 campaign. As Americans discovered what that change involved, they began to reject it. It was a change to the Left, to liberalism, to socialism.

Barack Obama is not seeking 2012 re-election for posterity’s sake. Obama is not waiting for his daughters to some day immortalize him in another book called “Dreams From My Father”. Obama is not seeking re-election for any reason other than to grab the four more years necessary to complete his messianic Fundamental Transformation of America.

Last election cycle, voters in both Wisconsin and Ohio elected conservative governors committed to breaking the death-grip that unions held over state finances.

In the case of Wisconsin, the backlash took the form of a recall vote, which “backlashed” badly against the backlashers. Us Tea Party types got to spend last evening pleasantly musing as to exactly how the liberal media was going to spin this one.

Wisconsin’s Recall Election | Veterans Today (“It was a corporate coup d’etat. “)

June 5, 2012 2 comments

by Stephen Lendman Winter 2011 witnessed an epic worker rights battle. Wisconsin public workers challenged Republican Governor Scott Walker. He won round one. Workers get another chance.

On June 5, they’ll choose between him and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. Neither offers much choice. More on that below. Lieutenant governor and four senate seats are also up for grabs.On June 1, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel headlined “Barrett, Walker bring out political stars,” saying: Barrett lured Bill Clinton. Republican party spokesman Ben Sparks asked why him and not Obama. Walker countered with South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, “a rising star of the Republican Party.”In late 2011 and early 2012, around one million recall signatures were collected. It was nearly double the required amount. Walker represents union-busting and eroding collective bargaining rights en route to ending them altogether.

He also imposed draconian wage and benefit cuts on public workers.Both candidates support monied, not popular interests. Wisconsin Democrats aren’t much better choices than Republicans. Regardless of who wins on Tuesday, labor rights lose. Wisconsin reflects what’s happening across America. It’s bad and getting worse. Bipartisan force-fed austerity means lower living standards, increased layoffs, fewer jobs, mostly low pay/poor benefit part-time ones, and private workers harmed like public ones.In February and March 2011, Wisconsin public workers and students protested daily against Walker’s so-called “Budget Repair Bill.”

It was a corporate coup d’etat.

Republicans screwing America (making Santorum)Republicans screwing America (making Santorum) (Photo credit: EN2008)

An election almost as important as the presidential election will be held next Tuesday, and conservatives aren’t making a big deal of it, just as they didn’t make a fuss over the 2008 Minnesota Senate election as Al Franken stole it from under their noses. (Gov. Tim Pawlenty: “Minnesota has a reputation for clean and fair and good elections. We’ve got 4,100 precincts run by volunteers. They do a good job, and we thank them.”)

The public sector unions are trying to oust Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker from office for impinging on their princely, taxpayer-supported lifestyles. If Walker goes down, no governor will ever again suggest that snowplow operators work when it snows. No governor will dare try to deprive public school teachers of their Viagra. Forget about ever firing self-paced, self-evaluated, unnecessary government employees.

Always leading the nation, California has already been bankrupted by the public sector unions. That’s the country’s future if Walker doesn’t win, and it’s not going to matter who’s in the Oval Office.

Democrats know what’s at stake. They’re treating this election like the Normandy invasion. Meanwhile, Republicans are sitting back, complacently citing polls that show Walker with a slight lead.

Polls don’t register passion.

This is bigger than just Wisconsin!

As we feared, Obama is launching his 2012 campaign by mounting a powerful attack against Gov. Scott Walker in Wisconsin. What is he after? The winner of the Gov. Walker Recall will have momentum and will likely also deliver Wisconsin’s 12 electoral votes in the presidential election to their party. Whoever wins the presidential election, will likely need to win in Wisconsin.

We have been warning you that this is not a local organic battle between conservatives and liberals, but a union backed effort with much of their support coming from out of state. The unions are hoping that a victory will set the stage for Obama’s 2012 campaign and deliver Wisconsin to him.

Obama’s campaign masterminds are planning on deflecting attention from the administration’s failures, and instead are creating a national smear campaign to recall Gov. Walker and re-establish support with his entitlement big-union base.

Walker has already started campaigning against this Recall, but he is no match for Obama’s campaign machine. We must start organizing to defend Walker and continue the Tea Party momentum into Nov. 2012.

.

The first battle for 2012 is in Wisconsin. If we lose, the ripple effect will be felt in all 50 states. We cannot afford to wait – help us stop Obama 2012 NOW!

Obama’s win in 2008 hinged on the support of big unions. Now, David Axelrod and the rest of Obama’s campaign team have decided it will reaffirm the administration’s commitment to the big unions by helping recall Gov. Scott Walker. By defeating Walker, Obama will be able to seize the momentum of a union victory to help spark his 2012 campaign.

The news just broke on the Obama administration’s decision to “delay” and “revisit” its new tax on the sale of Christmas trees.

I’m seriously bummed because the tax, announced Tuesday, was such a gift. It was the perfect symbol of governmental incompetence.

First, the 15-cent tax on Christmas trees is just the latest example of crony capitalism aimed at aiding one industry segment – fresh trees – against another – artificial trees.

On May 1, left-wing vigilantes will target companies across the country that have committed a mortal sin: sending donations to GOP Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin. Rest assured, such intolerable acts of political free speech will not go unpunished by tolerant Big Labor activists. They’re calling for both a national boycott of Walker’s corporate donors and a coordinated sticker vandalism campaign on GOP-tainted products.

The Wisconsin Grocers Association is bracing for the anti-Walker witch hunt. Anonymous operatives have circulated sabotage stickers on the Internet and around Wisconsin that single out Angel Soft tissue paper (“Wiping your (expletive) on Wisconsin workers”), Johnsonville Sausage (“These Brats Bust Unions”) and Coors (“Labor Rights Flow Away Like A Mountain Stream”).

Fighting to maintain the status quo

March 12, 2011 Leave a comment

…Probably the best thing that ever happened to America is the recession of 2008 because it exposed just how corrupt and out of touch most politicians were with common Americans.

Sadly, this includes Republicans as well as Democrats, whose sense of entitlement causes them to confuse their hold on power as being synonymous with the public interest.

While depriving Wisconsin’s public-sector unions of the right to collectively bargain salaries and benefits is admittedly strong medicine and a remedy I’m not sure I agree with, it nevertheless highlights the disastrous situation that successive municipal, state and federal government negotiators have gotten the country into.

But, hey, it’s not their money they’re bargaining with, so who cares?What Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker managed to do, at least for the time being, is to rein in the cost of delivering services and avoid a further debt crisis.

And for those of you who claim that the governor is using his bully pulpit to bash unions, I’d like to point out that the current financial situation, i.e. the status quo that so many politicians seem so intent on defending, means that every man woman and child in the United States owes somewhere on the order of $770,000 in government debt, taking into account all the unfunded liabilities at all levels of government.

To use a phrase currently so popular among the Left, “This is unsustainable.”So why are so many politicians, including Republicans, so loathe to cut government spending?So why are so many politicians, including Republicans, so loathe to cut government spending?

Will Wisconsin Be The Beginning of Something Big for Democrats?

March 11, 2011 Leave a comment

Ever since protests broke out at Wisconsin’s capital last month, there’s been a question of whether it could spark a liberal version of the Tea Party movement. That question became a bit more pronounced last night, as Republicans used a legislative tactic to overcome Democrats‘ attempts to block the Senate from being able to pass the budget fix bill that also reduced public sector union’s bargaining power. The liberal outrage in response has been compared to the conservative backlash when Democrats used the reconciliation process to pass the health care law.

Let’s Get Something Straight – Collective Bargaining is NOT a Right!!!

March 10, 2011 Leave a comment

As stated in the Declaration of Independence, we are endowed by our “Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness“, and it is governments responsibility to secure these rights, not create other ones.

To translate for Obama supporters, our Creator only guarantees three rights – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This list does not include collective bargaining, happiness only the pursuit thereof, a job, a house, a car, an iPod or iPad, a television plasma or black & white, or anything else not specifically listed! Therefore, when any government-instituted privilege is granted, consider it a gift. And, if it is not granted, remember that it was never guaranteed in the first place, regardless of who promised it.

Likewise, when a government-instituted privilege is taken away, remember that IT IS NOT RIGHT to have even received it in the first place, let alone to have enjoyed it for even one nanosecond for Obama supporters, that’s not very long.Got it???

Communists, socialists, Marxists, Oh my!

February 28, 2011 4 comments

One of the main groups organizing the Wisconsin union protests is a spinoff from an activist academy modeled after Marxist community organizer Saul Alinsky and described as teaching tactics of direct action, confrontation and intimidation.President

Obama once funded that academy – the radical Midwest Academy. He has been closely tied to the group’s founder, socialist activist Heather Booth.

Obama also is closely tied to scores of other radicals behind the Wisconsin opposition protesting Gov. Scott Walker‘s proposal for most state workers to pay 12 percent of their health care premiums and 5.8 percent of their salary toward their own pensions.Walker’s proposal reportedly would save $300 million in the next two years for a state that faces a financial crisis amid a $3.6 billion deficit..A slew of radical groups and unions have been organizing the protests against Walker’s proposal as well as counter protests to a recent tea party rally in support of the governor’s plan.

Obama’s own political machine has aided in organizing protests in WisconsinCounter protests were led in part by radical groups like Veterans for Peace, Freedom Road Socialist Organization, and the Workers World Party.

Public Employee’s Thinly-Veiled Threat Against Scott Walker?

February 25, 2011 Leave a comment

As the rhetoric continues to escalate and vitriol is directed at Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, the left willfully ignores all the hate and incivility. Fewer than 40 days after the Tucson Tragedy, the left is once again using heated rhetoric and resorting to thug-like behavior to intimidate their political opponents.

But as the budget fix bill moves closer to a vote, there is reason to fear that the protestors might resort to mob-like behavior.As the Madison demonstrations drag on, safety is becoming a concern.

Sources indicate that Capitol security forces are planning for the worst, and with good reason.Consider this veiled threat by Mike Imbrogno, a public employee and an executive board member of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees.

After a recent International Socialist Organization meeting, Imbrogno told an EAGtv reporter, “I hope Scott Walker goes down in the next few weeks….” See the video here.A recall process against the governor legally cannot begin until he’s been in office for 12 months. An AFSCME leader would know this. So what could he mean?Imbrogno has used similar coded language recently. Consider his rant posted on SocialistWorker.org:”The rallies are supposed to be followed by time for “lobbying” members of the legislature to vote no on the worst aspects of these attacks.

But this battle won’t be won in the offices of these right-wing pigs. It will be won by framing these political questions in the streets.”The mood around the Capitol is tense and the unions are stoking it. It could turn ugly at any moment, especially when the legislation passes. Elected leaders and their staff have every right to be fearful of what the unions will do to them, but at this point, they’re holding firm and doing the business Wisconsin voters hired them to do.The only question that remains is whether or not the unions will follow through on their threats………………….

Police Would “Absolutely” Use Force On Wisconsin Protesters

February 22, 2011 Leave a comment

Police would don riot gear and “absolutely” use force on protesters in Wisconsin, according to a state law enforcement representative, further stoking fears that the ongoing union demonstrations against a plan by Governor Scott Walker to eliminate collective bargaining rights for most public employees could end in violence.

Despite the fact that the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Association WLEA has vocally condemned Walker’s move to raise the level of pension and health contributions public workers would be forced to pay, WLEA executive board president Tracy Fuller said that troopers would still obey orders, don riot gear and “absolutely” use force against protesters to crush dissent if they were told to do so.“I have worked with the University of Wisconsin police officers that are there, along with the capitol police officers, and certainly I’ve worked with the state patrol officers because I’m a state patrol inspector.

I’m not able to even fathom that any of those police officers would not carry out whatever orders were given to do their job,” Fuller told Raw Story.“I guess that’s the one ironic thing about this,” he continued. “Last night my wife asked me to make a sign for her to take down there to protest. On that day, I thought to myself I could be making a protest sign for my wife to take down there … Then I could be down there confronting my wife with the protest sign that I made. God, you see … That’s … That’s my job.”

While adding that “It would not look like the United States, if we did that,” Fuller noted that it was “possible” agent provocateurs could be used to infiltrate the protesters and cause a violent flash point.

Are The Wild Teacher Protests In Wisconsin A Prelude To The Economic Riots That Are Coming To America?

Have you seen video of the teacher protests that are going on in Wisconsin? We haven’t seen anything like this in America in quite some time.

If you haven’t seen video of the protests yet, some very good raw footage is posted below. On the one hand it is good to see Americans coming together and standing up for what they believe in, but on the other hand what these teachers are freaking out about shows just how much America has changed.

These teachers are not protesting for liberty, freedom or to change the government. Rather, they are protesting because they want things to remain the same. They simply don’t want anyone to mess with their pay. Well, the truth is that none of us ever wants to experience a pay cut. It is not a lot of fun. But sadly, states like Wisconsin are so broke that they have to find cuts somewhere. Someone is going to have to make a sacrifice.

Returning National Guard Troops Set To Smash Wisconsin Protest?

300 soldiers head back to state fresh from Iraq after Gov. Walker put Guard on alert last week to prepare for strikesReturning National Guard Troops Set To Smash Wisconsin Protest?

180211topPaul Joseph WatsonPrison Planet.comFriday, February 18, 2011Coincidence or not, the fact that hundreds of National Guard troops are returning to Wisconsin today fresh from battling insurgents in Iraq is sure to alarm union protesters who labeled Governor Scott Walker’s move to put the Guard on alert last week a “threat” designed to intimidate demonstrators who are currently massed around the Capitol in Madison.

In case of a widespread walkout in response to his “budget repair bill,” Walker told reporters last week that he would use National Guard troops to be “prepared…for whatever the governor, their commander-in-chief, might call for. … I am fully prepared for whatever may happen.”Ostensibly, Walker’s announcement was a signal that he is prepared to replace state workers with National Guard troops, deploying them for example as prison guards. However, protesters cried foul, claiming that Walker was invoking the Guard as an intimidation tactic to suppress dissent.“Hundreds of Wisconsin National Guard soldiers return to the state Friday,” reports the Wausau Daily Herald.“About 300 soldiers from the 724th Engineer Battalion will be back at Volk Field where they will be met by senior National Guard officials and family members. A brief ceremony will be held before the soldiers are taken to nearby Fort McCoy to begin about five days of demobilization before their release.”The unit comprises roughly half of Wisconsin’s National Guard soldiers that are currently on active duty.

They return fresh from Iraq after having been on missions to remove roadside bombs placed by insurgents.They may now face a different type of insurgency, one led by state workers who are furious that their pension and health care contributions are set to double to fill a $3.6 billion budget deficit black hole, while two-thirds of corporations in the state pay no taxes whatsoever according to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue.

Union Fascism on Full Display

Frontpagemagazine ^ | February 18, 2011 | Rich TrzupekPosted on Friday, February 18, 2011 8:42:06 AM by SJackson

The hypocrisy of the American left is on full display in the heart of America, as the teachers’ union in Wisconsin continues to show how it will use any tactic, no matter how reprehensible, to try and get its way.

Threats, intimidation, violent imagery and inflammatory rhetoric – all of the sorts of tactics that the left and the mainstream media routinely accuse conservatives of using – are on full display in Madison.

But, rather than condemning such behavior, left wing champions from Barack Obama to Michael Moore are falling over themselves to show solidarity with the teachers’ union.

Obama WANTS Wisconsin Mess

The American Spectator ^ | February 18, 2011 | Quin HillyerPosted on Friday, February 18, 2011 3:05:43 AM by RobinMasters

Over at NRO, Jay Nordlinger makes an incredibly good point: Barack Obama should be urging calm in Wisconsin, no matter WHAT side of the underlying issue he is on.

It is not just unpresidential of him, but despicable, for him in effect to be urging on the mass demonstrations.

But as J. Christian Adams, Justice Department whistle-blower extraordinaire, reminded me in an email accompanying this post of his, these are not only the tactics always favored by the left in general, but specifically the sorts of tactics Obama himself was trained in — AND exactly what I myself warned about as Christian reminded me in my very first post-presidential election column in 2008.

Cairo Moves To Madison: Protesters mass in hallways of Wisconsin state Capitol as debt black hole threatens riots.

Paul Joseph WatsonPrison Planet.comThursday, February 17, 201

Last month we speculated how long it would take for the scenes on the streets of Cairo to be repeated in America. After all, Americans are facing similar levels of economic rape to those that prompted Egyptians to rise up and overthrow 30 year dictator Hosni Mubarak.Now Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan R is making similar comparisons after protesters massed in the hallways of the Wisconsin state Capitol this morning as part of what Matt Drudge dubbed a “day of rage”.

The demonstrators are rallying against a “momentous bill that would strip government workers, including school teachers, of nearly all collective bargaining rights,” reports the Associated Press.The bill asks public sector workers to make a 5.8 percent pension contribution, roughly equal to the national average, along with a 12.6 percent health insurance contribution.

Ryan expressed his opposition to the demands of the protesters, but noted that the Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was now facing, “Riots — it’s like Cairo has moved to Madison these days.”

Similarly, noting that the Governor has threatened to break the union protests by deploying the National Guard, writer Noam Chomsky told Democracy Now that what happened in Egypt was “the beginning of what we need here – democracy uprising.”
