SEIU Sued Based on RICO Statutes

A company named Sodexo has filed a lawsuit against the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) over what it calls Extortion. It looks like someone is finally standing up to the thuggish union tactics employed by the group Barack Obama has pledged his allegiance to. If these charges can be proven in a court of law, SEIU will be shown to have been even worse than some thought or believed - a huge feat in and of itself.

Sodexo is a company that would represent quite the score for SEIU, which at least would establish a motive to some extent. Here is a description of Sodexo via Big Government:
One of the largest food services and facilities management companies in the world, Sodexo is the provider of choice for most schools, universities, companies, hotels, prisons and other facilities that outsource their cafeteria and food catering operations, and for those that outsource industrial cleaning services. SEIU has been incessantly battering Sodexo since 2007, in its desire to unionize some of its nearly 400,000 employees, many of them hotel and food service workers. Exacerbating the tensions was a longstanding turf war between SEIU and UNITE HERE over hotel and casino workers, which often spilled over into SEIU’s antics prior to the settlement the warring unions reached this past summer.
Collecting union dues from 400,000 employees sounds quite lucrative. What lengths would an entity like SEIU go to in order to secure those dues? Here is a portion of what Sodexo is alleging SEIU has done from a press release about the suit via Breitbart:
The complaint alleges that the SEIU, in face to face meetings, threatened Sodexo USA's executives that it would harm Sodexo USA's business unless they gave in to the union, and then carried out its threats through egregious behavior, including:

* throwing plastic roaches onto food being served by Sodexo USA at a high profile event;
* scaring hospital patients by insinuating that Sodexo USA food contained bugs, rat droppings, mold and flies;
* lying to interfere with Sodexo USA business and sneaking into elementary schools to avoid security;
* violating lobbying laws to steer business away from Sodexo USA, even at the risk of costing Sodexo USA employees their jobs; and
* harassing Sodexo USA employees by threatening to accuse them of wrongdoing.
Remember what uncle Saul Alinsky taught Barack Obama? From Alinsky's Rules For Radicals, Chapter 2:
"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
It is really a sad testament to the state of this country when a man who is in bed with a group like SEIU is the president. Obama continues to aid SEIU in its efforts no matter where they take place.

Video: Obama Uncomfortable when Questioned about Libya

In an interview with Philadelphia ABC television affiliate reporter Jim Gardner, Barack Obama refused to answer questions about his policy on Libya. Obama's reaction to the question, however, did speak volumes. His eyes appeared to be communicating the message, 'How dare you ask me that.' Gardner wanted Obama to clear up the ambiguity in messaging that saw Secretary of State Clinton demand that Kadhafi leave and Obama's softer assertion that the Libyan leader stop killing.

When the Louis Farrakhan angle is factored into this equation, Obama's irritation makes a bit more sense. Farrakhan and Gadhafi are very tight and have shared similar goals. Farrakhan has also received millions of dollars from Gadhafi over the years.

Obama can no longer vote 'present.' Any U.S. attack on Libya is Obama's call.

Video: Farrakhan Rails on Obama over Libya Policy

While appearing as an in-studio guest on WVON radio in Chicago, Louis Farrakhan went on a ten minute rant against Obama over the president's policy with Libya. Farrakhan is visibly angry that Obama is deciding to take military action to have Gaddafi removed from power. He also blames the CIA for fomenting dissent in foreign nations like Iran so America can go in and better oust dictatorial leaders. He references the uprising in Iran as if to say we were responsible for them.

The Libya problem is one of Obama's more complicated ones, especially in light of his relationship with Jeremiah Wright and Farrakhan. Farrakhan has a very strong personal relationship with Gaddafi.

Via WND:
Farrakhan, a close friend and associate of Wright, has been financed by Gadhafi, including with a $5 million interest-free loan in 1985.

Later that year, Gadhafi spoke by satellite to Farrakhan's Saviour's Day Convention in Chicago, and reportedly told Farrakhan supporters he was prepared to provide weapons to a black army in the U.S. to destroy "white America."

In October 1995, Gadhafi reportedly called Farrakhan with congratulations on the success of the Million Man March. Gadhafi was said to have assured Farrakhan that together "we will unite our capabilities and efforts to achieve this."
Farrakhan obviously feels that Obama is harming whatever cause exists between the Nation of Islam and Gaddafi. One thing we've learned about Obama is he's more interested in picking winners and losers than he is in loyalty. The uprising in Libya is being fed by the Muslim Brotherhood and in the bigger scheme of things, they are much more powerful than one country at this point.

Farrakhan gets quite fiery here. Wait for the part where he says to Obama, 'Who the Hell do you think you are?'
