The Washington Post presented an article on June 13, 2011.
“FBI agents took box after box of address books, family
calendars, artwork and personal letters in their 10-hour raid in
September of the century-old house shared by Stephanie Weiner and her
The agents seemed keenly interested in Weiner’s home-based business,
the Revolutionary Lemonade Stand, which sells silkscreened baby
outfits and other clothes with socialist slogans, phrases like “Help
The search was part of a mysterious, ongoing nationwide terrorism
investigation with an unusual target: prominent peace activists and
politically active labor organizers.
The probe — involving subpoenas to 23 people and raids of seven homes
last fall — has triggered a high-powered protest against the
Department of Justice and, in the process, could create some political
discomfort for President Obama with his union supporters as he gears
up for his reelection campaign.
The apparent targets are concentrated in the Midwest, including
Chicagoans who crossed paths with Obama when he was a young state
senator and some who have been active in labor unions that supported
his political rise.”
“All 23 of the activists invoked their right not to testify before a
grand jury, defying U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, whose office is
spearheading the investigation.”
From Accuracy in Media June 22, 2011.
“One of the targets, Tom Burke, was a union organizer for the Service
Employees International Union (SEIU). He was so confident he would get
a fair shake from the Post that he provided the paper with a photo of
himself shaking hands with Barack Obama. The other apparent intention
was to send a message to the President and Attorney General Eric
Holder that any investigation of Burke might lead to Obama.
The Post suggested that investigations of labor union activists might
jeopardize their support for Obama’s 2012 presidential run. Indeed, it
could therefore threaten his re-election bid, if investigations
determine that the activists did more than “cross paths” with the
“The Post article has to be seen as a signal to Holder from those
around Obama that he must act quickly to close down these
investigations before they get too close for comfort to the Oval
Office. First, however, he has to make sure that the congressional
investigations don’t get too close to Holder himself. It won’t look
good for the Attorney General to be personally implicated in knowledge
of the federal gunrunning schemes now under Congressional
investigation that provided weapons to Mexican narco-terrorist
cartels. The evidence already shows that federal authorities let guns
fall into the hands of known criminals.”
Yesterday was George Orwell’s birthday so I set my decoder ring to double Orwell speak settings and this is the conclusion I have come to.
- Damage control for the US Justice Department.
- Gain creditability for Patrick Fitzgerald, a Obama puppet, and therefore Obama.
- Ultimately this is a ploy to “clear” Obama of associations of carefully selected targets to preemptively disarm political opponent’s questions during the 2012 elections. Like releasing an image represented as a birth certificate, it supposedly puts the issue to rest.
