It is largely accepted that President Obama’s re-election was in a large part due to the efforts of big labor and its foot soldiers (see Romney and GOP Steamrolled by Big Labor Corporate Campaign. Apparently, the number of union foot soldiers utilized in big labor’s overwhelming ground game was even greater than initially realized. The National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU), an organization which can be fairly characterized as the “anti-Tea Party,” has played a prominent role in utilizing coercive tactics during investigations into Tea Parties and other Conservative groups in effort to intimidate them and their members into staying out of the 2012 election campaign. Two high level meetings at the White House with big labor bosses from the NTEU and other unions occurred prior to the 2012 Election (Obama and the IRS Smoking). These meetings make it apparent the President enlisted the NTEU to utilize the same “Death by a Thousand Cuts” style and tactics to effectively neuter his political opposition, while other major unions were on the ground recruiting and intimidating naïve, easily, misled and misinformed voters to go to the polls to support the president.
On December 3, 2009 the White House hosted a Christmas Party where several major unions were represented including the SEIU, Unite Here, UFCW, Chicago Federation of Labor and of course the NTEU. Evidently this was more than a Christmas gala. Within six days of the gala, the President issued Executive Order 13522 which “allows employees and unions to have pre-decisional involvement in all work place matters”! In other words, NTEU labor boss Colleen Kelly and her foot soldiers were provided the discretion to attack those groups opposed to the President’s re-election.
On March 31, 2010 Colleen Kelly met with the President and evidently was given marching orders to begin the attacks as reported in American Spectator. The very next day after Colleen Kelly’s White House meeting with the President, according to the Treasury Department’s Inspector General’s Report, IRS employees — the same employees who belong to the NTEU — set to work in earnest targeting the Tea Party and conservative groups around America. The IG report wrote it up this way:
April 1-2, 2010: The new Acting Manager, Technical Unit, suggested the need for a Sensitive Case Report on the Tea Party cases. The Determinations Unit Program Manager Agreed.
These actions are further evidence of a President and administration out of control and determined to bring down the American system of government in favor of totalitarianism. It is just one of the many tactics used by the “Puppet” and his handlers that are reminiscent of the tactics utilized by big labor bosses during Corporate Campaigns to intimidate employers and employees into forced unionism. These tactics along with the recent revelation of other behind the scenes tactics:
