DNC names political consultant with ties to the abortion giant Planned Parenthood, SEIU, and George Soros

Posted in Democrat, Planned Parenthood Democrat Party, Soros with tags , , , , , , on July 13, 2012 by saynsumthn

The Democratic National Committee says Connecticut political consultant Andrew Grossman will head up the party’s platform drafting process ahead of its national convention in Charlotte, N.C. later this summer.

According to a 2008, New York Observer report, Andrew Grossman, founded an anti-Wal-Mart group Wal-Mart Watch, worked at the New York Senate Democratic Campaign Committee from 1999 to 2003, and in 2004, he was the director of Polling and Targeting for the George Soros-funded group, America Coming Together.

According to Grossman’s website, Grossman has been in politics for about 25 years working on a number of campaigns in California and in several New England states. His clients have included Planned Parenthood, the SEIU and a Walmart watchdog group that he founded. An excerpt from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Grossman’s website says he is “a political streetfighter who has been working…since before he was old enough to drink with candidates.”

Life News reports that Grossman’s company also headed up a job search in 2011 for the Planned Parenthood abortion business for a political director. Applicants for the position sent resumes to an email address managed by Grossman’s firm. The work continued as it headed up a search in February 2011 for a Vice President of Public Policy and Advocacy for Planned Parenthood. Later, Grossman’s agency led a search in March 2011 for a Director of Government Relations for the abortion business.
The work on Planned Parenthood’s behalf has continued into 2012, with Grossman’s firm fielding resumes for a host of other positions ranging from internships to a digital director.

SEIU halts Planned Parenthood $250.00 a plate fundraiser with picket threat

Revelers—including Gov. John Kitzhaber—planned to whoop it up at Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette’s Roman Holiday gala on Saturday, May 12, but they face a tough political decision: Support the organization’s annual $250-per-plate blowout, or honor the picket line that Service Employees International Union Local 49 plans to stage. SEIU represents 179 Planned Parenthood clinical workers; the sides have been “unable to reach an agreement on an initial contract despite negotiating since November 2011, says SEIU’s Felisa Hagins. Planned Parenthood CEO David Greenberg says he has not decided how to respond to the picket. Kitzhaber has. Says his spokesman, Tim Raphael, “The governor will not cross the picket line and has canceled his appearance.”

According to the Daily Caller:
Facing SEIU picket, Planned Parenthood cancels fundraiser
Published: 12:15 AM 05/11/2012

BURBANK, CA –
It seems that the Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette (PPCW) in Portland, Ore. and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) are in the midst of a little labor spat — but then nothing is little when it comes to either of these groups.

Last August, employees at the PPCW voted in favor of unionizing with the SEIU Local 49 in a National Labor Relations Board Election. The pair have been trying to work out a contract since November to no avail.

Due to frustrations with the slow contract process, the SEIU made plans to picket PPCW’s annual fundraising dinner scheduled for May 12 — a move that reportedly caused Oregon Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber to cancel his plans to attend the event, the Willamette Weekly reported.

“The governor will not cross the picket line and has canceled his appearance,” Kitzhaber spokesman Tim Raphael told Willamette Weekly.
The pressure caused PPCW to cancel the entire $250-per-plate event on Wednesday.

“It is with great disappointment that I write to let you know that we have decided to cancel our upcoming Spring Gala next Saturday, May 12,” David Greenberg, president and CEO of PPCW wrote in an email to supporters, obtained by Willamette Weekly.

“The decision by SEIU to picket our event has put many of our supporters into the untenable position of having to choose between two organizations, and two progressive causes, both of which they support,” Greenberg wrote, explaining that the organization wishes to respect their supporters’ allegiances to both groups.
The SEIU also rallied in front of a PPCW conference in late March.

“We’re here today because we’ve been bargaining since November 1, 2011,” explained Skye Frome, a registered nurse, at the time. ”And while we’ve made some progress, we have yet to see our most serious concerns addressed in any meaningful way. We’re here to show management that we’re serious about reaching a fair contract.”

In an ironic twist, the SEIU’s international executive vice president, Kirk Adams, is married to Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Neither group responded to The Daily Caller’s request for comment.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD??????????????????????

READ THIS: #Planned Parenthood’s Capitalistic and GREEDY rich! How about an “Occupy Planned Parenthood” protest next?

Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society. Sanger had board members who were known for their racist writing and Sanger published many of those in her publications. Sanger called for parents to have a QUOTE: LICENSE TO BREED controlled by people who believed in her eugenic philosophy. She wanted all would be parents to go before her eugenic boards to request a “PERMIT TO BREED“.

Margaret Sanger once said, “More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

In Margaret Sanger’s, “Birth Control and Racial Betterment,” Feb 1919. Birth Control Review , Library of Congress Microfilm 131:0099B .
Sanger states, “Before eugenists and others who are laboring for racial betterment can succeed, they must first clear the way for Birth Control. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit. Both are seeking a single end but they lay emphasis upon different methods.

Eugenists emphasize the mating of healthy couples for the conscious purpose of producing healthy children, the sterilization of the unfit to prevent their populating the world with their kind and they may, perhaps, agree with us that contraception is a necessary measure among the masses of the workers, where wages do not keep pace with the growth of the family and its necessities in the way of food, clothing, housing, medical attention, education and the like.

We who advocate Birth Control, on the other hand, lay all our emphasis upon stopping not only the reproduction of the unfit but upon stopping all reproduction when there is not economic means of providing proper care for those who are born in health.While I personally believe in the sterilization of the feeble-minded, the insane and syphilitic, I have not been able to discover that these measures are more than superficial deterrents when applied to the constantly growing stream of the unfitEugenics without Birth Control seems to us a house builded upon the sands. It is at the mercy of the rising stream of the unfit…

Sanger also called for those who were poor and what she considered to be “morons and immoral‘ , to be shipped to colonies where they would live in “Farms and Open Spaces” dedicated to brainwashing these so-called “inferior types” into having what Sanger called, “Better moral conduct”.

I consider that the world and almost our civilization for the next twenty-five years, is going to depend upon a simple, cheap, safe contraceptive to be used in poverty stricken slums, jungles, and among the most ignorant people. Even this will not be sufficient, because I believe that now, immediately, there should be national sterilization for certain dysgenic types of our population who are being encouraged to breed and would die out were the government not feeding them.
Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, 1950

In addition, Planned Parenthood’s top award is called the Margaret Sanger Award, despite the fact that Sanger was an admitted Klan speaker. This is what Sanger wrote in her autobiography, “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.” (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366 Read it here http://library.lifedynamics.com//Autobiography/Chapter%2029.pdf)

In 1962, Vice President of the American Eugenics Society at the time, Dr. Alan Guttmacher wants abortion laws patterned after Sweden and other nations. One reason they list to allow abortions is :EUGENIC ! Also- Guttmacher at this point says he does NOT BELIEVE that abortion should be left up to the patient or their doctor, rather it should be up to “Special Board” to approve the abortion.

Planned Parenthood employees say the organization is anti-choice when it comes to joining the SEIU !

Posted in Planned Parenthood Employee, Planned Parenthood Unions with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 10, 2011 by saynsumthn

According to this August 9,2011 article in the Portland Mercury: Local Planned Parenthood Clinics May Unionize

Employees of the 10 Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette (PPCW) clinics in Oregon and Southwest Washington are seriously considering joining a union. But the union and the bosses each accuse the other side of being anti-choice when it comes to letting workers decide their future. An election this Wednesday, August 10th, will determine whether 160 of the nonprofit’s reproductive healthcare workers join ranks with the local Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

Oregon has the highest per capita use of Planned Parenthood in the nation, and if Planned Parenthood forms a union costs to the “poor” women they “serve” will dramatically increase! notice how these Planned Parenthood’s are located in minority neighborhoods ( Martin Luther King BLVD ) – some people claim this is done to target the black population for abortion ( Maafa21) .

According to the paper, the drive for the union revolves around having more of a voice in the planning and administration of PPCW, as well as “gaining a livable wage for all staff” and maintaining health benefits.

“There have not been specific complaints,” says SEIU Local 49 President Meg Niemi. “People want more of a say over how the organization works and is run on a local level.”
But SEIU alleges that Planned Parenthood’s management is trying to squelch the local union before the election.

A union rep told KBOO radio that management had been holding “captive meetings” and sending out intimidating emails. Niemi also says that Planned Parenthood has been “restricting workers’ speech and rights” by asking workers to not discuss the union during work.

PPCW President David Greenberg says the management has not held any meetings specifically about the union drive and that, on the contrary, some employees have felt intimidated by receiving frequent phone calls from the union at their homes.

“Planned Parenthood has always stood for choice,” says Greenberg. “Our employees, like our patients, should be fully informed to make decision about their future.”
A review of the emails show Greenberg trying to stay within the law despite being against the union’s formation.

In multiple emails, Greenberg told employees to weigh the arguments and make up their own minds. But in an email dated July 19th, he writes that the union may be promising more than it can deliver and says, “I hope you will not vote to have SEIU represent you.”

Planned Parenthood received $349.6 million in tax dollars in the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2008, and $363.2 MILLION Dollars on Government Grants ( Tax Dollars) in 2009– that is ONE MILLION DOLLARS PER DAY of taxpayer money !!!

Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Web site shows that it performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, up 8,270 from 2008. Why should the taxpayer be forced to fund abortion?

So..just how is Planned Parenthood spending YOUR money besides paying their staff Larger than Life Salaries????

They are building MEGA Centers around the country which are muti-million dollars abortion clinics:

Some argue that Planned Parenthood is a “good” organization despite the fact that they were founded by a RACIST KLAN speaker who was so connected with the Eugenics Movement that many of her Planned Parenthood board members were Eugenics members as well. Eugenics is the movement that forcefully sterilized thousands of Blacks in the US and Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger agreed with that ideology.

Former SEIU director of government affairs and political director for eugenics founded Planned Parenthood to head Colorado Department of Labor

Posted in Planned Parenthood appointed, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 4, 2011 by saynsumthn

Colorado’s Gov.-elect John Hickenlooper on Monday named a former Planned Parenthood employee and union leader to head the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment and an advocate for Western Slope counties as chief of the Department of Local Affairs.

Ellen Golombek will serve as executive director of the Department of Labor.

Golombek presently works as the Colorado director for America Votes, a liberal organization focused on access to voting and carrying forward a progressive campaign infrastructure. Before that, she spent 14 years with the Service Employees International Union and the Colorado AFL-CIO. She also worked as national political director for Planned Parenthood.

Sen. Minority Leader Mike Kopp, R-Littleton, was less enthusiastic about Golombek’s selection.

“Gov.-elect Hickenlooper’s appointment to the Department of Labor may certainly take some of the air out of the bipartisan atmosphere he has promised to promote as governor,” Kopp said. “His selection of a noted progressive activist and a union boss in Ms. Golombek certainly will raise plenty of eyebrows in the business community, and with good reason.”

In 2007, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) appointed Ellen Golombe vice president for external affairs. And described her position this way, “In this newly established position, Golombek will expand Planned Parenthood’s working relationships with external partners and organizational allies, and also work to provide overall managerial support in the office of the PPFA president and to the PPFA Board of Directors.

“Ellen Golombek has been a champion of health care access for men, women, and families. Her leadership on progressive issues in the labor movement will be invaluable to Planned Parenthood, and I am thrilled to have her guidance as we work to ensure women’s health and safety,” said PPFA President Cecile Richards.

Golombek’s strong management background is reflected in the work she has undertaken for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). For the past four years, she has served as the assistant to the secretary-treasurer and director of government affairs for SEIU. Before that, she directed the successful Americans for Health Care campaign for SEIU, which played a crucial role in making health care a central issue in the 2004 election. During her time with SEIU, she was responsible for the oversight and management of a multimillion dollar budget, and she successfully reorganized four different departments for the union, creating efficiencies and streamlining processes and communications.

Prior to going to Washington, Ellen was elected as the first woman president of the Colorado AFL-CIO, where she led the political and legislative efforts for the Colorado labor movement. Her election as president came after a successful career as a flight attendant and leader of the Association of Flight Attendants. She will begin her new position at Planned Parenthood in August.

Planned Parenthood whose founder was an admitted Klan speaker was founded on Eugenics as documented in the powerful film: Maafa21
