Hoffa predicts ´civil war´ in Michigan
CNN, by Ashley Killough

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 12/12/2012 1:39:09 AM

Jimmy Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, said Tuesday he expects Michigan unions and lawmakers to break out into "civil war" after the state legislature passed right-to-work bills that would weaken unions´ power. "This is just the first round of a battle that´s going to divide this state. We´re going to have a civil war," Hoffa said on CNN´s "Newsroom." The Republican-controlled state House passed two bills that had already been approved by the GOP-dominated state Senate. Gov. Rick Snyder, also a Republican, is poised to sign the bill, which would allow workers

A public service message from your friendly neighborhood local union thug. /s Bite me, Hoffa.

The Dems, and Libs want people to do what they tell you to do. Do as they say not as they do. They want people to have rights, Their Rights, no Our Rights. Why should people not have a choice of whether to be in a union or not. They earn their money. Unions take it and use it to Destroy our Country!! They are mad because they are losing the money that goes to the Programs our president wants to supply
Way to Go Michigan!! Oh by the way the Dems don´t like when Republicans use the passing of bills by the politicans of their states. Only they can when they pass gay marriage through the states government like they did in NYS

The Right to Choose only applies to killing babies I guess. If they start rioting... since no one lost their jobs or incurred any personal loss, that would qualify as unfair labor practices... and violates their own stupid laws.

Since the MSM has a blackout on the 2 dock strikes in LA & San Diego.. striking for eliminated sec´y jobs to still be paid to unions... Is that still holding up xmas presents?

They know they have a comrade in arms in the White House. They´re feeling like "it´s time". So almost like it´s been planned and rehearsed, they´re surging, trying to provoke a violent reaction. This time they may be purposely looking for an incident that invites such a response that it would provide justification for a "Red October" type of uprising. Then the comrade´s edicts to supposedly protect the public...martial law, confiscation of firearms, etc.

It certainly has the look and feel of something bigger and more "final" than your typical union thug protest. Be vigilant. Be prepared.

Yes Obe elections do have consequences. One occurs when states can no longer trust or work with feds and baby dictators they resort to state solutions.
Now we have a nation almost evenly divided
right to work free vs right to bow to unions.
incoming makes 30 states not progressive controlled and Obe loses his fake mandate.

I saw some video of Hoffa´s union thugs today, as they beat Steven Crowder´s teeth out of his head.

These are the same jackasses who spent the past two days loudly rehearsing the lines, "We´re not the violent ones."

Scum.

Absolute scum.

What I wish on these scum (and their entire families) isn´t printable in any family-friendly forum.

I kind of hope the unions follow through on these threats, and the businesses in MI take a powder to a southern state leaving behind the union´s scum. If nothing else, I hope they strike far and wide and throw us into a recession so Obama´s second term will be one long nightmare for everyone, not just us conservatives.

Tony Camargo has been identified as being one of the union scum to attack Steven Crowder without provocation.

Tony Camargo needs to be charged, jailed and sued in civil court for every dime he has.

That, or Tony Camargo needs to have a busload of right-minded people show up at his home at 20 a.m., and show this fat union coward what´s up.

I don´t know how much difference this will make in Mich. from a practical standpoint.This is a very union addicted state and I´m sure this is causing ripples throughout the community.Union leadership doesn´t understand how much people have turned against them,especially when everybody else is struggling and they deamnd more.Unions can feel their power fading away so they´ll make one hell of a stink about this. It´s too bad republican interests never get this fired up when it goes against us.How many people threw an actual fit over Robert´s Obamacare decision?

But I can see where a new hire will be read the riot act in a parking of at a unionized factory.They´ll find ways to intimidate people into joining the union regardless of what the law says. Afterall,they are union thugs.

Unions aren´t only bad because they donate to dems but their pay and benefit scale is way out of line. On top of that,they do things like slow productivity to protect overtime.

What a fall the union movement has taken. Just a few years ago Obama had promised them Card Check and doing away with the secret ballot in union elections. Now in the great Union State of MI, Republicans show they have some guts and role them back. Lets not forget the bravery of Wisconsin´s Republicans last year. Now if we could see some similar courage from Mr. Boehner in D.C.

Headline tells you all you need to know about unions and the people who support them. If unions are such a great deal, they would not feel threatened by this new law. The only way unions can succeed is by a declaration that everyone must be in one. Choice just kills them.

Hoffa´s union has been closely watched/audited, by order of the congress, for years due to criminal activity. When the present potus and his minions in the congress took control (2007 for congress, 2008 for the leader)they removed the watch/audit process and let the union return to what it does best....criminal activity and funding the dem party.

This is what it looks like when a state has been paying protection money to the mob and decides to stop. Just a bunch of thugs out for themselves and the heck with their neighbors who are out of work....let them eat cake.
These unions have bankrupted the state legislatures and could care less, because they have their man in the white house who can start up the presses and print bail out money.

Only 18% of all Michigan employees belong to a union. This includes both public and private sector unions. I grew up in Michigan in the heart of UAW country, and I was surprised the number was so small. However, the influence of unions on the psyche of many is huge. Even though much of the state runs moderate to conservative politically (which is reflected in our republican governor and republican-controlled state house & senate), the southeast region, which includes Detroit, Ann Arbor, & Flint, has for decades supported primarily the democrat party and has been strongly pro-union, despite the fact that the majority of people here aren´t union members. I am a visiting RN, and I try to keep a "neutral" position when patients bring up political topics. I´m there to help people heal, not to recruit them to the conservative cause. But even my neutral statements about the tensions in Lansing were met with vehement denunciations of Gov. Snyder and the evil republicans. Needless to say, I quickly changed the subject.

The union says that people who are not members should not receive the benefits that they have "negotiated." I say fine, let the non-union workers work on the merit system and we will see just how much they can EARN in the way of benefits. The unions have done more harm than good in last few decades. They have done nothing to increase the productivity of their members, and have promoted an adversarial environment between labor and management. Union workers do not make up of the majority of the work force and amazingly, companies can still prosper and treat their employees well. Most of us don´t need bullies on our behalf to negotiate our wages and benefits. A person of good character and honesty with a good work ethic can do just fine. They will be more productive and produce better products and results. That is their leverage unlike the threat of violence or work stoppage.

Hoffa also argued that those who don´t pay union dues will be considered "free riders,” as they’re getting the same benefits from union representation without the cost.

Free riders? You mean like the welfare slugs who ride on our backs as WE pull the wagon?
Or the free riders who enjoy the benefits of lifetime pensions on OUR tax dollars?
Or maybe the free riders who flit about on Air Force One and Two on OUR tax dollars on their myriad vacations?
Or the Teachers Unions who are permitted to teach nothing and get paid for it on OUR tax dollars?
Or the free riders in Congress who get generously paid for life after they retire on OUR tax dollars?

If there are any "free riders" in this labor issue, it´s the union pensioners, thugs and enforcers who funnel OUR money into electing Democrat (never Republican) officials, Presidents, Congressmen and Senators.

The reason the unions are so hot over workers having a choice is that union dues always, always go toward electing Democrats. It´s a huge candy store and the Democrat Party can´t afford to have the flow of dollars for Democrats stopped or slowed.

For Democrats, unions hold the piggy bank.

How about that one football field-duration haymaker Camargo delivered? He´s certainly no cage fighter. The libs on other inet sites started saying Crowder´s wounds were popped pimples! You see the mindset of those sickos.

Maybe Hoffa will become an involuntary Houdini. The mobsters should start a new reality show: Union roller derby: They can wear those weird "working class" clothes, carry their preprinted anti-Republican signs etc and elbow people in the gut as they skate.

I view unions as a necessary evil especially in the skilled trades (carpentry, plumbing, electricians, welding, pipefitting, etc.). But the union has to make the case that their activities benefit the workers and the best measure of their (union) effectiveness is the voluntary payment of dues. The unions oppose Right to Work for the same reason that the IRS would oppose the elimination of Payroll Tax With holding. Its means that the ultimate payer will suddenly subject them to additional scrutiny.

i´m actually encouraged by the prediction of "civil war". It will either:

a) actually happen, in which case Hoffa´s fat sausage-eating tough-guy army will get wiped out.

or

b) it won´t happen- which will further marginalize and embarass the silly union punks like Hoffa.

Wasn´t it just the other day that Obama was in Michigan politicking against State elected officials because they were considering the ´Right to Work´ law that was passed. That is blatant federal interference in legal Michigan business and you can blame the resulting rioting on the WH.

If I was the state of Michigan, and any other state for that matter, I would deny the President any security normally provided by State and Local police when he´s flying in to purposely cause rioting and unrest. He should just butt out. Why pay for the expense of having to pay for Presidential protection and to pay for the ensuing rioting and law breaking encouraged by the Administration.

A lot of people voting for Obama realized that their current financial plight is due to the unions. This is the disconnect that Democrats have long feared. There are plenty of Democrats who personally dispise unions for their power and privlege and have no problem with Michigan becoming a right to work state as long as it stays Democratic. The union proposition was defeated with the help of Democratic voters. The message is clear, belong to a union if you want but it has nothing to do with me or my party and by the way you are the problem.

We pray they arn´t bringing their politics along as well . If that crummy state can get its act together and kick unions to the curb , maybe work will return .

Odd, isn´t it? Michigan went for Obama, yet has a legislature and a governor that are willing and able to pass a right to work law just a month after the big election. And the protests come, not from the outraged citizens of Michigan, but from thugs and goons brought in from other states. (As they were in Wisconsin.)

Anyone else feel a disturbance in the force?

Not rocket science. Union chiefs want to manipulate the market to the unions´ advantage, then take their dues, pay themselves astronomical salaries and bribe democratic politicians to support them. Any other questions?

When I was in high school I worked for $1/hr. doing semi-skilled labor. My unionized classmates made $4/hr. doing utterly brainless labor at a manufacturing plant. Guess what--the plant went out of business. The unions´ top principle: it´s good while it lasts.

Red states beware. When someone from Michigan comes looking for work take a look at his car. Look for the Obama-Biden bumper sticker or some other indicator that he carries the union virus. File his application accordingly into the shredder.

Unions are a bad 19th century European idea that was imposed into an attempt to solve a problem that arose in early-to-mid 19th century Europe - especially in Germany and France. The problem was the mass migration of millions of illiterate peasants off the land into the cities to take jobs in factories under horrendous conditions.

Many of these peasants and their advocates - (syndicalists, socialists, communists, etc.) emigrated to the U.S., bringing their problems and their attitudes with them.

We are over a hundred years past this stage, yet the Union Movement is still stuck back in the 19th century at the Homestead Mine with immigrant firebrand Mother Jones.

No, all these employees should be wearinga vest.It would be like a marathon runner vest.On it would say: "Am I working Hard?
Report goof offs" And then an employee number and an 800 number.
Then we can see some correction.
My relative works for a big public entity, is in a union, finishes his job in about 3-4 hrs and then he and the others hide out in an eco-preserve where there are large trees until the end of their shift.
Get this, they don´t even have a time clock in the dept for them or any one !

We are looking at the future of the Republican Party. Forget trying to form a conservative third party. It´s not necessary.

After all the fretting about the lack of a bench at the national level of the Republican Party, this should give us all hope. While the entire current crop of would-be Republican presidential candidates at the national level are busy trying to figure out ways to not lose, there are literally thousands of conservative men and women playing take-no-prisoners triple A political hardball out in the boonies, and they´re not afraid to get their uniforms dirty. This is how the Tea Party takes over the Republican Party. From the ground up.

Can the Republican Party pose the question:

Why should union members get paid more than the rest of us? Why should they have government power to enhance their own standard of living while the rest of us don´t?

The Unions add no value to the products the workers make- so we are paying higher prices so they can have higher wages. Why should this be?

I read or heard an article a couple of days ago that companies searching around for some other place or state to relocate to have told the searchers to NOT even consider ANY state that in NOT a right to work state. Now, I just wonder if the unions have heard about this? My guess is that they have and are scared ****less because of it. And for all the uproar caused by unions, it´s amazing that unions only make up 8% of the non-public sector work force. Yet they cause a large amount of trouble.

And if memory serves me, I seem to recall that a some time in the past that most of the large labor unions were controlled by the Mafia. Have the Dims simply evolved into them?

Look how well dems and unions run a place - too many cities to mention.

Do you remember when zippy said he´d walk the protest lines with his union buddies? Haven´t seen him do that yet. Maybe too much for the SS to protect him.

If Detroit was dozed, we could call it urban renewal. A definite improvement.

What happened yesterday was not my America - look how we´ve changed! Along with zippy trashing the Tenth Amendment by stepping on individual states´ rights.

Nigerian child bride kills man

KANO, Nigeria – A child bride forced into marriage in Nigeria killed a groom and three of his friends with a poisoned meal, police said Thursday. Fourteen-year-old Wasila Umaru was married last week to 35-year-old Umaru Sani, according to assistant superintendent Musa Magaji Majia. Over the weekend, the groom invited a dozen friends to celebrate at his Ungwar Yansoro village, about 60 miles from the northern city of Kano. The teenager told police she bought rat poison at a village market and used it to prepare a dish of rice. "The suspect confessed to committing the crime and said she did it because she

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Last week, the online dating site OkCupid switched up its homepage for Mozilla Firefox users. Upon opening the site, a message appeared encouraging members to curb their use of Firefox because the company´s new CEO, Brendan Eich, allegedly opposes equality for gay couples—specifically, he donated $1000 to the campaign for the anti-gay Proposition 8 in 2008. "We´ve devoted the last ten years to bringing people—all people—together," the message read.

Is British TV chef Nigella Lawson’s archenemy ex-husband Charles Saatchi behind the move to deny her entry to the US? The powerful businessman has a family connection to the Obama campaign and the current US Ambassador in London, Matthew Barzun. Barzun was appointed as US Ambassador by President Obama last year. The former CNET exec is a longtime activist in the Democratic party, and was a prominent fund-raiser for the 2008 Obama campaign, organizing mass events. Saatchi’s nephew, Edward Saatchi, also worked on the 2008 Obama campaign as a manager and founded NationalField, a social network to allow campaign staff to share information.

SANTIAGO, Chile — A powerful magnitude-8.2 earthquake struck off northern Chile on Tuesday night, setting off a small tsunami that forced evacuations along the country’s entire Pacific coast. Officials reported two deaths and several serious injuries, but the area apparently escaped major damage as landslides blocked roads, power failed for thousands, an airport was damaged and several businesses caught fire. Iquique Gov. Gonzalo Prieto told Radio Cooperativa that two people were known to have died after the quake hit at 8:46 p.m. and several others had serious injuries. The mayor of Tarapaca attributed the deaths to heart attacks. The U.S. Geological Survey

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
