SEIU To Pay 2nd Largest Fine in Michigan State History For Campaign Finance Shenanigans


(Purplepeoplebeaters.com)

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is well known for it’s head cracking tactics.  But in Michigan it seems they are branching out and will forever be known for it’s Campaign Finance Shenanigans as well.

According to a Press Release from the Michigan’s Department of State Office,  SEIU will have to pay almost $200,000, the second largest fine in the state’s history, because they failed to disclose the fact that they bankrolled Proposal 4 in 2012:

LANSING, Mich. – In what is the second-largest fine of its kind, the Service Employees International Union will pay $199,000 in penalties after the Michigan Department of State found there may have been campaign finance violations, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson announced today.

The penalties are part of a conciliation agreement reached by the department with Citizens for Affordable Quality Home Care and Home Care First, Inc., related to a 2012 ballot question to amend the state Constitution. Violations included commingling of funds; late filings; not identifying all accounts used; and not providing complete or accurate campaign statements. When combined with late filing fees already paid, they will have paid more than $205,000 in fines.

Proposal 4 was SEIU’s attempt to put a forced unionization scheme into the State’s Constitution.  Fortunately it was defeated.

Sebelius: Obamacare WILL Raise Premiums; NO DELAY on Individual Mandate

It would seem that the Obama Administration is finally telling the truth about something.

According to an article on The Daily Mail, Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, admitted on Wednesday that Obamacare will actually raise insurance premiums:

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told House Ways and Means Committee members on Wednesday that she expects health insurance rates to increase as the Affordable Care Act takes full effect.

‘I think premiums are likely to go up,’ she conceded under questioning, ‘but go up at a slower pace’ than they have already under Obamacare.

President Obama famously promised in 2008 and 2009 that his health insurance overhaul plan would lower the cost of health care for an average family by $2,500 per year.

To add to her “Come to Jesus” moment, the HHS Secretary then added that while Obamacare has been delayed on many levels, the individual mandate is not one of them:

And as a March 31 deadline approaches, the date when Americans will face fines if they don’t have medical insurance, Sebelius told the panel that there will be ‘no delay’ in enforcing that so-called individual mandate.

VIDEO: Republican Senator Defeats Progressive Dems Global Warmingathon With One Word: “Climategate”

  James

Progressive Democrats in the Senate organized an all night Global Warmingathon in an effort to push the fictional concept of Climate Change.

Unfortunately for them, the Republican Senator from Oklahoma, James Inhofe, defeated their plans utilizing only one word: Climategate. (4:00-6:00)

 (In 2009) I asked Lisa Jackson, when you have the Endangerment Finding it has to be based on some type of science.  What science are you going to use?   She said mostly the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.  So that’s the kind of science they have been using for a long period of time.

But, ironically, the timing couldn’t be better.  It wasn’t a matter of weeks after that, it was a matter of hours after that, that Climategate was exposed.  Climategate all started with East Anglia University’s Climate Research Unit, one of the main Universities that helps put together information about Global Warming for the IPCC.  There it was disclosed that the IPCC was systematically distorting the facts, cooking the science of Global Warming to either cover up data that didn’t tell the story they wanted everyone to hear and exaggerated the impacts of the changing climate to help drive people, out of fear, into action.

VIDEO: Hong Kong Patriots Hold Mock “Communist” Rally

Mock Commie Rally

What does a person do if the wish to peacefully protest the presence of Communists?

Hold a mock Communist rally of course.

According to an article on CNN, patriots of Hong Kong held a mock Communist rally protesting the presence of shoppers from Communist China:

In a satirical “Communist rally” aimed at mainland Chinese shoppers, about 100 Hong Kongers marched through the city on Sunday wearing Maoist costumes, yelling “love your country, buy Chinese products!”

Others held posters of Mao Zedong, branded with the mock-patriotic slogan “Chinese people should drink Chinese milk” — a dig at the throngs of mainland shoppers who enter Hong Kong to buy its infant formula, which is viewed as safer than Chinese infant formula.

Filled with apparent glee, protesters mockingly bellowed the Chinese national anthem off-key, and thrust Mao’s “Little Red Book” into the air.

Here is video of the event:

VIDEO: Nancy Pelosi Calls For Amending the Constitution….Again

Nancy P

In early February, Nancy Pelosi co-authored an op-ed in in The Washington Post calling to amend the Constitution in order to overturn the Supreme Court ruling on the Citizen United case.

It seems the written word wasn’t strong enough for Congresswoman Pelsoi because while giving a speech at the California Democrat Convention on March 8th, she said it …again (10:50-11:35):

 Too often people feel their voices aren’t heard and their votes don’t matter. And the misguided Citizens United decision only made matters worse. For us the answer is clear, it’s a dare. D-A-R-E:
Let’s Disclose all of the secret donors seeking control of our government and our campaigns.
Let’s Amend the Constitution to overturn Citizen’s United.
Let’s Reform the system to strengthen small donors and energize the grassroots.
Let’s Empower voters by ending voter suppression by renewing the Voter’s Rights Act and by electing men and women who will shift the leverage back to working families.
