Revolt! Michigan Wars Against the Corporate Mob


GOP Tries To Burn Down America


By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor


The scene is Lansing, Michigan, where the GOP dominated legislature tries an 11th hour assault on the states workers, small business and middle class.  Michigan has always been “mob run” and governor Synder is as “mobbed up” as they come.

Fox News, front for Wall Street “banksters” and organized crime, has again turned against Americans, this time in Lansing, Michigan.  The Michigan legislature, under GOP control due to gerrymandering, has voted to abolish union rights through passing what is improperly called “right to work” legislation.

YouTube - Veterans Today -

In the background, Fox News cameraman is heard screaming:  “I’ll kill twenty %$##@’s, I gotta gun….”  This is considered, by Murdoch and his bloodsucking friends as media comedy.  Watch Crowder saved from a well deserved beating.

A similar move in Ohio, when put to state referendum last year, lost 67 to 33% in a statewide election.

Several “wing nut” and “lunatic fringe” websites have shown their “NWO” colors by promoting Fox News’ carefully edited “provocateur video.

We strongly suggest readers to look for any site carrying the “Steve Crowder” video and boycott them and their advertisers.

Chances are they don’t need the money anyway, if you get what I am inferring.

What is happening in Michigan, a rigged legislature trying to overturn an issue already rejected once by voters, is what would have been the “law of the land” had Romney been allowed to enter the White House as something other than a guest.

If you were wondering when the revolution would come, open your eyes.

    Yes johnsholtes, you are right it is ‘Vengeance is mine etc’, I realised too late, but hopefully, as an Anglican by birth, ‘God’ will allow me a little poetic license.

    In my opinion these archetypal sayings are psychologically relevant whether voiced by Joe Bloggs down the road or if a holographic ‘alien from outer space’ with a messianic complex shouts them from the sky.

    I think it is important to understand the symbolism involved. It is an explanation of the universal law known as ‘karma’. ‘The Lord represents what is, what exists beyond the distortions of our ego, the ‘King’ in Germanic fairy tales. I don’t know about Thor but the Germanic fairy tales do not promote a free for all philosophy of personal vengeance.

    ‘Vengeance is yours’ sounds to me like something the rampantly egotistical YahWeh of the OT would expound. I think we have collectively progressed psychologically beyond such emotional dictates.

    Even the so called ‘primitive cultures’ such as the Australian Aborigines held councils of elders to decide how justice would be meted. This was done to minimise and contain ‘karma’. If we involve ourselves in unrestrained premeditated action such as personal revenge, then karma ricochets back and forth erratically. But if we remove our personalities from the situation then ‘karma’ will prevail.

    For the purpose which I used this statement I feel it was appropriate. I was signifying that I am not going to lower myself to respond to the taunts of Schlomo and Co. any longer.

    I apologise for the distraction from the subject of this article.

    Quote from Bill Oreilly, “The Mossad is our Friend” Yes the perpetrators of 911, the Liberty the Mossad snipers in Iraq are definitely friends of Fox Jews. Their whole staff should be hanged on live broadcast tv.

    Here is the bottom line. I pay 100% of my tax burden, can’t afford workmans comp insurance, and best of all…my “rate” is a decade old. My estimate/bids are routinely undercut by 50%, and 75% is becoming rather common. Even at a decade old price. A direct correlation to competing with “undocumented worker price competition”. Any help that I utilize must be paid as another “sub-contractor” to eliminate the additional tax burden and other associated cost of an “employee”.

    I maintain and replace as needed approximately 6 – 7,000 dollars worth of “tools of the trade” and that does not include truck maintenance, fuel, insurance, and “what ifs”. I receive countless calls to “come fix” the jobs I initially lost due to the ignorance of most home owners that still believe quality can be had for cheap. In 90% of these situations, complete tear-out and start from scratch is the only solution. Too expensive. So they live with it.

    There is no longer a future in what I do. Do I blame the “wetbacks”…less than I blame those that hire them. They are trying to honestly support families in Mexico, primarily. But the fact that they are HERE and able to work and obtain government benefits that I cannot…RIDICULOUS!

    Immigration reform and unions…can’t be any worse than my current reality. Fact is, neither will happen. Too much money being made by too many assholes under the current “system”. I just need a NEW occupation….a couple of acres to grow “medicinal herb(s)” on.

    I didn’t mean to imply it would be fun, but I know plenty just starting out who have done it on the cheap. My point is that it’s still a thousand times cheaper than setting up even a small manufacturing facility which costs millions or tens of millions, minimum.

  5. Hugh  December 12, 2012 at 12:28 pm

    “The funny thing is that the workers that are out there protesting these union bills actually voted for the politicians that are killing their jobs. Both parties are married to the one world economic system and the “free trade” agenda, and Barack Obama has been one of the worst offenders. He has been pushing for more “free trade agreements” throughout the past four years, and yet union workers continue to support him enthusiastically.”

    But Obama has our back; right Duff?

    “All it takes is $500 worth of tools and you can go into business”

    It costs a whole lot more than $500 worth of tools to do contracting where I live if you don’t want to run afoul of the State. Last I put pencil to paper it will set you back well over 20 grand in insurance, bonding and license fees. Of course you’ve got a truck and tools which are going to set you back more than $500 if stay away from the Chinese Crap. This also includes bookkeeping costs that you have to farm out if you want to have time to do the actual work. I can’t work a hired hand for less than $75 dollars of which they might get $25. I make less than that from their labor. Just think how the economy would boom if I could give the 30 or so going to regulatory costs to the my workers and they could spend it. Hell for that matter if you want to see this econmy boom get the CorpGov out of all our wallets. Dump the IRS and the Income / Corporate tax alltogether and you would see a boom beyond anyone’s expectations. Even the CorpGov would bring in more revenue from it’s legal tax activities due to the increased volume of business.

  7. DaveE  December 12, 2012 at 10:40 am

    @Latney Davis:

    If you’re a contractor, you don’t need a union because you don’t have to show up at an employer’s property to make a living. All it takes is $500 worth of tools and you can go into business. The guys who make the hammers and plywood, however, are a different story.

    They have to show up at an employer’s place of business. It takes a million dollars (at least) to set up shop making plywood, not something anyone can do. The guys who spend their lives making plywood can’t just walk down the street to get a new job, particularly if they’re older, more skilled but also more compartmentalized, or disabled, etc. etc. If making plywood is all they know, they’re f^%&*d, no matter how good they may be at making plywood. If the employer says, “I’m paying you less and you’re going to work harder and longer” then that’s it. That’s what they have to do.

    Private contractors have a different problem, as you say, illegal immigrants. Those illegals generally can’t get work in the factories, so they’re on the street undercutting the Americans doing the same work.

    My point is, both contractors and factory workers have their share of problems, but unions aren’t much of a solution for workers who free-lance. Unions however are the only protection that factory-oriented employees have.

    Have you ever wondered why the folks who hate unions are also the folks who hate the thought of immigration reform? The answer is simple, they hate the idea of having to pay ANYONE a fair wage.

    The solution? Immigration reform AND unions!

  8. boonie rat 70  December 12, 2012 at 8:24 am

    Oh, yes, let us not forget the long list of ‘ Unions ‘ and Democrats that invest with Bain Capitol ,the demon from the GOP swamp that tried to destroy all we love about America.

  9. boonie rat 70  December 12, 2012 at 7:58 am

    Brilliant , substantive commentary on the proper balance of Union versus individual . Let’s use California as a road map to get the USA back on track . Just take a good look at their track record in achieving the good life through Unionization .

    There is no “communist assault on America.” That concept is billionaire Koch brothers’ “Americans for Prosperity” propaganda. The same billionaires who derailed the Tea Party and the Republican Party.

    Actually, the concept didn’t start with them.

    In the ’50s and ’60s, the John Birch Society were the crazies,finding communism in any government program, seeing the Civil Rights Movement as just another arm of the communist party. They were crazy enough to be repudiated by William F. Buckley and Barry Goldwater, and to be investigated by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI.

    The 2012 Republican Party is barely distinguishable from the John Birch Society. It is funded in large part by the Koch brothers, the heirs of Fred Koch, one of the Birch Society’s founding members. The Kochs may not be members of the Society, but their ideas — extreme laissez-faire capitalism with communism lurking in any regulation, unions, health care and even Civil Rights laws — are virtually the same.

    The Zionist Jews have been undermining the US since it’s inception. Learned something new and interesting this AM. US Grant issued orders to expel “Jewish Carpet Baggers” in 1862 who were black market trading cotton in both the South and North. I’m not at all condoning “The Union” or this order as they were using gold as an attractive alternative to Both Greenbacks and Confederate currency. But it was still war profiteering and blood money as far as I’m concerned. I also found it interesting that he referred to them as “Israelites”. So the Zionist movement was alive and kicking even before the Civil War. They sent a group to Lincoln and were able to convince him to order Grant to stand down even though it would seem anathema to his agenda of starving the south of capital, particularly gold with which they could purchase weapons. My guess is they had that avenue covered as well.

    Wiki: General Order No. 11 (1862) for more info.

    Funny how I don’t remember any mention of this in History class 😉

    You mentioned gerrymandering. Would it be possible to return to something like a graph-paper type grid, that could be overlaid on the U.S. map (including territories) so that we could have a fairer re-distracting and apportionment of votes?

    If people saw what it looked like now, they would NOT believe the twisted geography and tricks used in the carving up of districts. Could we return to something more sane, is that possible?

  13. joesigur  December 12, 2012 at 3:01 am

    I love it when ppl get personal cause their world view isn’t reflected by the author-hey dude-this is America-it’s ok to say what you believe. Also, please don’t tell your fox news friends you are anti zionist-that’s a nono. Also, there is much more money to be saved by stopping the corporate whoring our foreign policy is accomplishing thru the fake war on terror-we do that-then maybe, we ask the workers to take a cut-if necessary!

  14. joesigur  December 12, 2012 at 2:54 am

    I would claim small business and corporations whose top brass have little contact with their employees are different circumstances. Abuses of unions as well as management are often exacerbated by government officials not being honest brokers. We all like to blame the players when the ppl behind the scenes are the aggravation element

  15. joesigur  December 12, 2012 at 2:48 am

    workers and goyim most likely thought of in the same spirit.,they are here to serve us, not to tell us what to do. What is obvious is that steps need to be taken to advantage chronic importers to this country who get a a leg up by employing dirt poor ppl for peanuts in foreign lands. Sad thing is, all American sheep would notice is the higher prices they would be forced to pay as a result.Inflation would be a lot worse but for cheap labor for many goods. Why you think tv’s and stuff never go up in price whereas commodities like local foods have gone thru the roof

    Another question, are you being cyber stalked by any chance?

  18. The Rahnameh  December 11, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    I’m sorry, but there is no difference between Zionists, Communists, or the Capitalists who built the Federal Reserve and financial schemes that drown us all if you look at the history properly. The bankers who machinated it all belong to the same hive as well. This is the Talmudic Zionist Mafia.

    Is President Obama a Communist? Let’s entertain the thought. Why don’t you detail us some supporting evidence for your points above so we can discuss?

    Now, some checks please before you do so we don’t waste time on redundancies:

    1- any evidence you present should not be contradicted by similar, worse, or identical acts by previous administrations, particularly Republicans;

    2- are you sure you’re not kowtowing a party agenda while Gordon is actually speaking to the individual who is the current Executive? Do you believe President Obama kowtows his own party’s agenda fully? (Please feel free to include this answer with the supporting evidence);

    3- How much do teacher’s pensions and salaries comprise of an average State’s budget? To simplify this question, maybe we should just look at Michigan and Ohio;

    4- Did you know that a school’s curriculum is supposed to be established by the state and local government while W. Bush’s “No Child Left Behind Act” substantially changed that jurisdiction to a Federal reach?; and,

    5- Why do you think the Democrats are the anti-liberty and communist (contrast this with the term definition for socialist)?

    Personally, I think the best litmus test here is that John Bolton and Netanyahu HATE President Obama.

    Whoever they hate == America’s true friend.

  20. liberty1776  December 11, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    I havent been here much lately as GORDON DUFF is so anti-Republic anymore it is stupid. This is stupid.

    Gordon says: ah, someone noticed…that the communist assault on America through the GOP is orchestrated through Tel Aviv and AIPAC


    YES the zionists are our enemies. yes there are some bad Republicans, but MANY MORE are for FREEDOM, LIMITED GOVERNMENT, etc.

    GOrdon Duff & many of you here have lost a good chunk of credibility. do u have ANY FREAKING idea what is going on? STATES cannot continue to pay out huge amounts of money to these teacher unions for their FREAKING HUGE PENSIONS and bloated salaries as they push their PRO-ABORTION, PRO-EVOLUTION LYING TRASH.

    i am ashamed of Duff. Obama is the communist. OBAMA is the Communist, you coward. Frank Marshall Davis is his dad, —- go ahead and ridicule me. you have gone way too far in your shilling for these marxist bastards.

    Obama will foment the eventual attack on America from Russia & China. Laugh all u want, u are too FOAMED at the MOUTH at the Zionists & Israel to see thru any other paradigms.

    U people, some of u, are no better than the bloodthirsty zionists who have killed so many and caused so much destruction. but we have a communist bastard in the white house who seeks to kill the Constitutional Republic and limited government, and DIng-a-Ling Duff is busy still taking potshots at Mitt Romney. wake up some of u.

    Fox News? I though this was a comedy show, do they actually provide news now? Maybe I’m mistaken.

  23. xx  December 11, 2012 at 6:40 pm

    Well I’m glad you know whose actually been running Michigan for some time, several quite wealthy families. Yes, I believe sometime in past worked for one family; apparently the AG office was afraid of this family, wonder why? This reminds me of working in Canada one time, big strike in the US, and thereafter union wanted to partner with Canadian Union. My group was told to stay away from Canadian reporters and obeyed the command. Now these news reports entering Canada, stated peoples in the union in Flint Michigan made 6-figures incomes, and likewise, the prosperity of Flint during this time. Apparently this made Canadian Union members mad, and we both know the prosperity of Flint, and how union workers made over one-hundred thousand per year. Yes, right. Wonder who sponsored this false news report? We were monitored closely, not to answer questions from Canadian news reporters, and completely avoid “Accidentally telling the truth, and verifying their information about Flint to be completely false.”

    GENERAL QUARTERS GENERAL QUARTERS THIS NO DRILL!!! The United States of America has been occupied by a Fascist Luciferian Cult generally known as Zionisom.

    It is hereby ordered the relief of command of the leader of said movement: General Anesthesia, responsible for destroying the good will and intent of the American Republic. I hereby remand said individual to the custody of Sergeant at Arms, Corporal Punishment for the court ordered sentence of immediate execution by exposure to the Colonel of Truth!

    (For those who don’t open the link.)

    “Fox News contributor Steven Crowder is working overtime on the effort to create a violence narrative, claiming to have been punched repeatedly and promoting a video spliced and edited to the point of hilarity—you’re not supposed to figure out that in between the obvious cuts, Crowder is provoking people into yelling at him. Oh, and Crowder claims to have been punched repeatedly in an area filled with police and to have it on video, yet he hasn’t pressed charges, police don’t seem to have witnessed the supposed violence, and Crowder’s face looks just fine. Even the pictures on Breitbart intended to illustrate the damage show a “minor cut” on his forehead that looks like he may have popped a pimple at some point in the day.

    “This is a big, heated protest. There’s been jostling and shouting in the crowd, for sure. But so far, there are no credible reports of real, harmful, malicious violence among the protesters. (Emphasis on credible.) By far the most pain has been inflicted, it would seem, by police using pepper spray.

    ” ‘While of course we do not condone the actions taken by a small group of people, the disciples of James O’Keefe were attempting to instigate the crowd all day,’ [AFL-CIO spokesman Eddie] Vale said, referring to the right-wing, video-camera-wielding provocateur.’ As soon as the incident happened our marshals worked with the police to move the AFP people through the crowd to safety with no injuries.’ ”

    Gov. Rick Snyder has signed into law two anti-union bills affecting public and private sector workers, pushed by the Koch brothers’ “Americans for Prosperity” and containing verbatim language from an ALEC model bill.

    They campaign on “Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!” lie about their plans when asked before elected and after, ram through the bill and then sign it behind police lines in private.

    The cowards build more killing laws to hide behind after people vote for a lie… and it is whose fault? Yeah, like the propaganda channel Fox news will let the sane people get truth out.

    Corporate rape and looting in disguise.

    10,000 plus rally at the State Capitol, … ” witnesses say the Americans for Prosperity people were trying to provoke union members to violence, and witnesses reportedly saw AFP people loosening the ropes on the tents so they would come down. …

    “Eclectablog similarly cites witnesses who saw Americans for Prosperity people weakening their own tent.”


  27. JDB  December 11, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    Should someone be forced to be in a union if they don’t want to be? If I own a business shouldn’t I be able to hire or fire whom ever I want? If a union is organize freely without force, I see no problem, but force is not freedom.

    Morality dictates that employees and employers should have these freedoms. Am I missing anything?
