I am not one who usually subscribes to conspiracy theories, but sometimes even the most bizarre ramblings of my mind to explain seemingly surreal events turn out to be true. The recent bevy of Traveling Union Thug Theater in state capitols around the Rust Belt certainly fits that narrative. For years, we on the right have seen these demonstrations, rejected the premise that it was some sort of spontaneous grass roots movement by a population who felt oppressed by the rapacious heels of jack booted corporatists, spoke our minds about our belief that it was in fact a well organized, “astro turf,” movement set into motion by the slickest elements of the professional agitation groups, meaning ACORN, SEIU,AFSCME, AFLCIO, etc. We were immediately labeled as crazy, loons, conspiracy nuts, and worse yet, paid corporate lap dogs trying to defect the nefarious activities of our greedy masters residing in the lap of luxury, firmly seated at their place among the evil 1%.
A funny thing happened on the way to that narrative in the aftermath of the shenanigans in Madison Wisconsin. There is at least one man who was paid to travel from his home in Florida to a Marriott in the Madison area, and agitate some of those demonstrations there. Clarence Haynes, the man at the center of this allegation, was paid in excess of $147,000 dollars, plus his biweekly take home pay of $1900, for services rendered in the Wisconsin State Capitol. The current fugitive from justice, received a W-2 from the SEIU, who’s name appears on the bank drafts which funded his personal checking account, that reported zero in earnings to the IRS. The transactions were all managed by ADP, those Obama friendly payroll people, who report their opinions on our current employment situation ahead of the Labor Department just when our President needs a helpful boost in his poll numbers. Among his other unofficial duties, actually casting a ballot in the Wisconsin Supreme Court election seems to have taken up at least a few minutes of his time.
That particular activity is a problem, since Haynes was never a resident of Wisconsin, nor allowed to vote in that state legally. His participation in that particular election begs several other questions as well. For instance, did that particular crime end with Mr. Haynes? He was after all, not just some two bit thug who happened to be in Wisconsin for the protests, nor was he some low level agitator, barely registering on the SEIU food chain. He was a man that the SEIU felt was worth more than 150 grand of their resources, to be in Wisconsin, doing what ever community organizers do in order to earn their keep. Even in the world of Chicago style pay for play, that has to be thought of as a considerable amount of scratch. How many other fraudulent votes did Haynes deliver for, and let’s be realistic, his organization was out there stumping for, Joanne Kloppenburg? How many such people did the SEIU dispatch to Wisconsin? Was Wisconsin unique, or were the thugs also present in Ohio, Indiana, and other states as well? Are those same fine class of professional agitators present in Michigan today?
Recently, we’ve had a Presidential election where in several key states, Barack won narrowly while receiving 100% of the vote in more than a few precincts, something that is statistically impossible. 427,000 strategically placed votes throughout the middle west and Florida are what determined this past election, and I am not crazy for believing that this was well within the capability of the professional cheaters to accomplish, were they inclined to do so. Victory outside of the margin of cheating appears no where in our Constitution, and yet, it never ceases to amaze me how any credible instance of actual cheating being proven to have happened always seems to have favored the Democrat Candidate.
If the SEIU would take the risks involved with cheating for an election in which Wisconsin chooses a Supreme Court Justice, I believe they’d have no problems with the decision to pull similar shenanigans for President of the United State. On the first Tuesday in November, we should all be sporting those inconspicuous purple dyed fingers, the ones Iraqi’s figured out how to employ in order to prevent fraud at the ballot box, and use photo ID’s, in order to keep non citizens from participating in elections in which they have no business. Looking at this election, and listening to the same old suspects talk about why we lost this time, and how it is all a sign that we need to moderate, and forget about the realities of right and wrong, it angers me to no end. What angers me more is the very real possibility that Mitt Romney may have actually won the election, and might not have lost it at all.
Don’t get me wrong, these clowns who now run our Executive Branch should never have been close in the first place, and that in itself speaks to terrible problems from K through 12, but at the same time, moderating on issues that are as basic as free markets versus whole sale Socialism would be worse. Where ever Clarence Haynes may be, I hope the authorities find him soon and alive. Threaten him with a life time of hospitality at the worst hell hole in Wisconsin, and let’s hear what the man has to say. It is time to put an end to the Chicago way of doing things in America. The SEIU is a great place to start.
