Video: AFL-CIO Head Trumka says 'Forget About the Law'

On April 7th of this year, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and UAW President Bob King spoke at The Future of Unions in America Roundtable. To set this up, consider that Trumka once bragged about visiting Obama's White House 'two or three times a week' and King was appointed to the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations by Obama. Simply put, if Obama disagreed with what you are about to hear both of these men say, they're access and / or employment with his administration would be gone. The fact that it isn't is a tacit admission by Obama that he approves of law breaking if it means furthering a political agenda.

Shockingly, these things are not shocking to Americans.

Via The Blaze:

After all, Obama's ideological hero, Saul Alinsky had quite a few things about ends justifying the means in Rules 4 Radicals:
Chapter 2. Of Means and Ends [Forget moral or ethical considerations]

"The end is what you want, the means is how you get it. Whenever we think about social change, the question of means and ends arises. The man of action views the issue of means and ends in pragmatic and strategic terms. He has no other problem; he thinks only of his actual resources and the possibilities of various choices of action. He asks of ends only whether they are achievable and worth the cost; of means, only whether they will work. ... The real arena is corrupt and bloody." p.24

"The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive — but real — allies of the Haves…. The most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means... The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be...." pp.25-26

"The third rule of ethics of means and ends is that in war the end justifies almost any means...." p.29

"The seventh rule... is that generally success or failure is a mighty determinant of ethics...." p.34

"The tenth rule... is you do what you can with what you have and clothe it with moral garments.... It involves sifting the multiple factors which combine in creating the circumstances at any given time... Who, and how many will support the action?... If weapons are needed, then are appropriate d weapons available? Availability of means determines whether you will be underground or above ground; whether you will move quickly or slowly..." p.36
In light of the fact that an Obama friend (Trumka) and an Obama appointee (King) said 'Forget about the law' and 'We're not going to rely on the law' respectively, it is now irrefutable that Obama lied when he said this.
