The lies people tell themselves and others to make themselves feel better. Gerry Hudson, Exec. Vice President of SEIU is still a bit embarrassed that the tea parties caught them unawares; but it gets better.
“…you would think they (the tea parties) overwhelmed these hearings. That there were huge numbers of them. The truth of the matter was that there wasn’t.”
Mr. Hudson goes on to say that when SEIU caught up, they overwhelmed the Tea Party Patriots with their response.
Here is to hoping that Mr. Hudson and the rest of the insulated SEIU leadership keep thinking that the Tea Party Patriots number in the tens, instead of the tens of millions.

One must assume that Mr. Hudson was either out of town when the above photo was taken on 9.12.2009 in Washington, D.C. OR he is lying.
WARNING: ADULT LANGUAGE!!!
Gerry’s at it again while speaking about white workers and their opposition to immigration reform. Poor Wisconsin stakes the hit on this one.
Well this is an interesting set of circumstances the Monster finds herself in (again). I just put up a piece about why I will continue to keep posting Glenn’s videos. Go here if you really require the all the background information.
Glenn’s show today covers the lies that we tell ourselves (Scott Brown is a fiscal conservative), and the lies the politicians tell us (Obama and ACORN).
The lies and deceit about Global Warming are being broken wide open with more information coming in daily, and we are all conspiracists for thinking that maybe something was not tracking quite properly.
The Liberal Party is in turmoil with the resignations of five frontbenchers from their portfolios this afternoon in protest against the emissions trading scheme.
Tony Abbott, Sophie Mirabella, Tony Smith and Senators Nick Minchin and Eric Abetz have all quit their portfolios because they cannot vote for the legislation.
Senate whip Stephen Parry has also relinquished his position.
The ETS is Australia’s version of America’s proposed Cap and Trade and the EU’s various carbon reduction schemes: a way of taxing business on its CO2 output. As Professor Plimer pointed out when I interviewed him in the summer, this threatens to cause enormous economic damage in Australia’s industrial and mining heartlands, not least because both are massively dependent on Australia’s vast reserves of coal. It is correspondingly extremely unpopular with Aussie’s outside the pinko, libtard metropolitan fleshpots.
The lie of global warming makes no difference to the globalist pResident who changed his mind, (like I knew he would), and is planning on attending Copenhagen and pushing the Climate Change Emission restrictions to condemn the world to poverty and control by the UN and the shadow globalists. The globalists are all about controlling resources; energy, oil, gold, guns, food, water, and labor. Can we impeach him yet?
President Barack Obama unveiled a provisional target number for lowering U.S. greenhouse gas emissions that the U.S. will present at next month’s international climate change summit in Copenhagen.
The White House said Obama would offer a provisional U.S. emissions cut of 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020, mirroring a sweeping House climate bill that was approved over the summer. Obama will put this figure on the table “in the context of an overall deal in Copenhagen that includes robust mitigation contributions from China and the other emerging economies,” the White House said.
The Copenhagen talks are aimed at crafting a political accord, with efforts to reach a final, legally binding emissions treaty to follow next year. The U.S. is the world’s second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases behind China, and the president’s attendance will add some much needed weight to the negotiations. “The President’s decision to go is a sign of his continuing commitment and leadership to find a global solution to the global threat of climate change, and to lay the foundation for a new, sustainable and prosperous clean energy future,” the White House said.
Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that the Obama administration argued in a recent court filing that the Privacy Act does not apply to the Executive Office of the President (EOP). This court filing came in a Judicial Watch lawsuit filed in 1996 against the Clinton White House related to a scandal known as “Filegate,” where the Clinton White House obtained and maintained the private FBI files of hundreds of former Reagan and Bush officials [Alexander v. Federal Bureau of Investigation, Civil Action No. 96-2123/97-1288 (RCL)].
In the Obama administration’s “Renewed Motion for Summary Judgment,” filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on September 17, the Obama Justice Department stated the following: “The White House is not an agency under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and it necessarily follows that it is not an agency subject to the Privacy Act.”However, the Privacy Act specifically lists the “Executive Office of the President” as an agency subject to the Act’s provisions. (emphasis mine)
“The White House is not an agency…” It is OUR house where the salaries and bills are paid with OUR money. It is a branch of our government. If it is not a federal agency, what is it?
U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth had repeatedly rejected this same legal argument, most recently in 2008 when the court ruled against a government motion that would have dismissed the lawsuit: “…this court holds that under the Privacy Act, the word ‘agency’ includes the Executive Office of the President, just as the Privacy Act says.”
While the Obama administration continues to advance the legal and political argument that the White House and the FBI should not be held accountable for the Filegate scandal, former President Bill Clinton apparently disagrees. Clinton told historian Taylor Branch in preparation for a recently published book, “those files did not belong at The White House,” and that they “should have been isolated and returned immediately.” According to Branch, Clinton also said “[h]is administration should and would be held accountable.”
“What the Obama administration is effectively saying here is that if the White House decides to illegally compile FBI files and violate your privacy rights, tough luck,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is disturbing that the Obama administration has taken the legal position that the Privacy Act does not apply to the White House and the Clinton FBI files scandal was not a scandal. It is worrying to those of us concerned about the Obama White House’s collecting “fishy” emails and compiling an enemies list of new organizations, radio hosts, businesses, and industry associations to attack and smear. Is the Obama defense of the FBI files scandal less about that Clinton scandal and more about what his White House is up to now?” (emphasis mine)
An era of transparency when the White House is compiling emails lists, is asking for the names of people spreading “misinformation”, and waging a war on FoxNews and free speech? An era of transparency when the party in power is doing all their work behind closed and LOCKED doors, not posting the bills online, not allowing the American people a chance to voice their opinions on fiscal life and death bills without ridicule, or even giving the members of both the House and Senate enough time to read and digest bills before being brought to a vote?
Just one more lie to add to the ever lengthening list coming from this administration, and another “Let Them Eat Cake” moment.
