Pro-Union Activist Threatens the
Michigan Governor: ´We´ll Be at
Your Daughter´s Soccer Game´

Weekly Standard, by Michael Warren

Original Article

A speaker at a protest against Michigan´s right-to-work legislation said that Republican governor Rick Snyder will "get no rest" from pro-union activists if Snyder signs the bill into law. "Just know one thing, Rick Snyder: You sign that bill, you won´t get no rest," said Rev. Charles Williams II at the Tuesday rally in Lansing, according to Michigan Capitol Confidential. "We´ll meet you on Geddes Road. We´ll be at your daughter´s soccer game. We´ll visit you at your church. We´ll be at your office." Snyder, who lives in a house on Geddes Road in Ann Arbor,

I´m not going to read the article. Just the threat alone against his daughter is horrific. In a sane world the ´´activist´´ would be thrown in jail. I may be wrong, but I´m assuming the Rev.II is black. I would never have said that four years ago.

So get a restraining order - keep them outside any county the MI gov is in. Or maybe outside any state. Or nation, that sounds even better.

Oh, they are part of the problem.

This is a "Man of the Cloth" which made this threat?

Sad thing is, these thugs mean it. They will harass the gov. My brother-in-law worked for his father-in-law in MN and didn´t want to join the union. He was beaten and had his truck shot at, he reported these incidents to the cops and they did nothing. He finally gave in and joined. They are a bunch of goons!

I was one of the AFP Tent "survivors" from Tuesday. We called and called for the police and/or Capitol Security and they never came before the union terrorists tore it down and destroyed much private property.

So I sure hope the State Police will do a better job protecting Governor Snyder and his family!!!

Why don´t we just call these people what they are - TERRORISTS!!!

Have the thugs that beat up the Fox News reporter in Lansing been arrested yet? The citizens of Michigan voted out a pinko commie Canadian born Dem governor in favor of Republican Governor Snyder. Governor Snyder should be just as tough with the union thugs as Reagan was with the air traffic controllers -- have no mercy and take no prisoners. The old "Rev." is an unholy poor excuse for a human being.

Read how Hitler went from 30 followers to supreme Chancellor in just 10 years. When the police forces turn their back on their duty, the rest of us are in DEEP trouble. The media really ought to challenge their dereliction of duty, but of course they are the root of the problem. If we don´t find a way to push ALL of this back, it won´t just be the US that falls, it will be the world that slides back into a new Dark Age. This unraveling of civilization can not be overstated.

Idiots on the left don´t get why people "cling to guns". It´s obvious now that if Obama invokes a government takeover,the cops are going to be on his side simply because they´re in a GD union.

The culture of left wing derangement is filtering down to the kids to the point where they can´t separate fantasy from reality.Even when cops are on the job,they get there a day late and a dollar short.

Schools all across this country have tolerated bullying and some kids internalize it and snap at some point.

Every one of these white kids that have snapped have liberal parents but we never hear a word about them or why their kids were so deranged.If the parents were gun rack rednecks,we´d never hear the end of the investigation.Just like this Elmo character.Is he in jail yet?

I watched the video. After this incendiary preacher, the Mi. Dems took to the stage, with similiar messages.

This is Obama´s America. Time for the 23 states trying to secede to join together & form our own America... based on the constitution & guided by Judeo-Christian values.

No unions, no minority or special interest labels, no illegals, no politically correctness, just a group of patriots, of all races, working together as a Free People.

People can have 90 days to identify with either The Obama Nation or The Freedom Nation.Once everyone is in their preferred nation, we can adopt Australian type immigration laws... no one who isn´t financially self sufficient or brings a special talent will be allowed in.

#23, I have heard that a .22 caliber bullet, shot from the correct distance, will bounce around inside someone´s scull, making their brain into hamburger. And CSI cannot get any forensic evidence from a .22 caliber, due to the fragmentation and compression of the bullet when it hits bone.

#28, I would further restrict anyone that wanted to be recognized and/or identified by their skin color from joining our Republic. That would restrict anyone from the KKK to the rabid, mad-dog new black panthers from becoming a citizen of our new nation.

I Googled it for you, #2. The Rev. Williams II is indeed black, born in Detroit, raised in Birmingham and has earned a glowing reputation with the left as an "activist." In the past he would have been described as an "agitator" but I´m sure that word is long gone from the PC dictionary. The Lord says do not hate but I think it´s proper to put these people in the same category as house flies.

I had an uncle who was a member of the UAW and worked at a Buick plant in Flint back in the early 60s. It was made clear to him by the advice of his shop steward ( read:threatened) that he should change his mind about mounting a challenge to replace a longtime union official. He persisted , anyway. Suddenly, his children were being followed home from school and other places just so he knew that they could and would harm his family if he persisted. He immediately got his mind right. I can´t help but think about how this was WAY before they became the cornered rats that they are today.

First off, let´s watch the left wing governor of CT take all the guns away from his citizens. We´ll see how that goes. He is an absolute moron.

Regarding the article, union members are never prosecuted for destroying property, harassing anyone opposed to their union, attacking scabs, attacking any other person, even killing them. Never has a union member or union official held responsible for what they say or do. The police unions will not go after their "brothers" and who knows if the firemen will come if your home or business is on fire. All unions in the US are corrupt, and they have the Democratic Party in their pocket. We know the Democrats are all takers and not producers.

Sanitary-minded pool-goers who preach "no peeing in the pool," despite ordinary and Olympic swimmers admitting to the practice, now have scientific evidence to back up their concern. Researchers are reporting that when mixed, urine and chlorine can form substances that can cause potential health problems. Their study appears in ACS´ journal Environmental Science & Technology. (Snip) They conclude that swimmers can improve pool conditions by simply urinating where they´re supposed to -- in the bathrooms.

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana recently told a Nashua, N.H., audience about his experience with a school bully. Bullying is a nationwide problem, but the bully Jindal was describing was U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who recently tried to crush school choice in Louisiana. Last Monday, March 17, parents in New York City who send their children to Success Academy, a Harlem charter school, filed suit in federal court to stop another school bully, Mayor Bill de Blasio, from denying them previously arranged space in a public school building.

The American gun control movement is going corporate. Still reeling from the stinging legislative defeats of 2013, proponents of tougher firearm regulations are increasingly turning their focus to private sector campaigns. Gun control groups have claimed victories in recent months, successfully pushing Starbucks to declare guns unwelcome in stores and persuading Facebook to crack down on unregulated firearm solicitations. With no end in sight to the congressional gridlock that has thwarted more stringent federal gun laws, groups say they will continue to apply pressure on major companies.

Branford, Conn. - A Branford police officer is off the job after he got into a fight online with someone about gun ownership. That officer is on leave after he told someone online he couldn’t wait to bang down his door and take his gun. A heated Facebook discussion with a Branford police officer that John Cinque says the cop took too far. “I’ll give my left nut to have the ability or have the opportunity to kick your door in and take your guns.” That was one of the comments Cinque says was over the line.

A video funded by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England discussing bondage and sadomasochism is coming under fire for its subject matter. "They´re offering information on what is really a violent act and making it acceptable to young people," said Bryan McCormack, executive director of Cornerstone Policy Research & Cornerstone Action, which promotes strong families and limited government. Planned Parenthood said it is using private donations - not government funds - to pay for a series of sexual education videos, including one titled "Getting Kinky - BDSM 101."

NASHUA -- Thomas Pappas, chairman of the Nashua Police Commission, voluntarily resigned from his position on Wednesday, about three weeks after his involvement in state Rep. David Campbell´s duck killing incident was revealed. "He regrets greatly his role and the events of Dec. 23," Attorney Jim Rosenberg said of Pappas. "He is deeply saddened by the fact that he is resigning his post now." Campbell called Pappas after he had a couple of drinks and ultimately ran over several mallard ducks with his BMW, killing five of them on Dec. 23 outside of the Crowne Plaza.

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of
