On a Senate Call, a Glimpse of Marching Orders – Schumer let’s the cat out of the bag…

   Charles SchumerOn Tuesday March 29, 2011 Senator Charles Schumer, New York was on a conference call talking to his colleagues (fellow Senators), but what he didn’t know is that reporters were also listening in to the call.

On the call, He made reference to the Democrat’s plan to use the word “extreme” to label the Tea Party for their calls for a balanced budget. Here’s a segment of the audio which was recorded:

Transcript: “I always use the word extreme, that’s what the caucus instructed me to do…, extreme cuts and all these riders, and Boehner’s in a box. But if he supports the Tea Party there’s going to inevitably [be] a shutdown. What we are trying to do here…” (audio cut off at this point)

Senator  Schumer has  clear ties to three extreme organizations.

  • The Council for a Livable World, founded in 1962 by long-time socialist activist and alleged Soviet agent, Leo Szilard, is a non-profit advocacy organization that seeks to “reduce the danger of nuclear weapons and increase national security”, primarily through supporting progressive, congressional candidates who support their policies. The Council supported Charles E. Schumer in his initial successful Senate run as candidate for New York.
  • In 1997, Schumer was one of 33 co-sponsors of H.R. 950, the Job Creation and Infrastructure Restoration Act. The bill had originally been sponsored by Congressman Matthew Martinez at the request of over 50 prominent labor leaders – all of whom were known supporters or members of the Communist Party USA. The Communist party even delegated senior member Evelina Alarcon to oversee the bill’s progress.
  • In 1998 Schumer enjoyed electoral support from Communist Party breakaway group, Committees of Correspondence.

…And he’s got the audacity to call the Tea Party extreme?Transcript: “I always use the word extreme, that’s what the caucus instructed me to do…, extreme cuts and all these riders, and Boehner’s in a box.

Did you ever want to be “fly-on-the-wall” to hear the back-door dealings of the progressives?

Moments before a conference call with reporters was scheduled to get underway on Tuesday morning, Charles E. Schumer of New York, the No. 3 Democrat in the Senate, apparently unaware that many of the reporters were already on the line, began to instruct his fellow senators on how to talk to reporters about the contentious budget process.
After thanking his colleagues — Barbara Boxer of California, Benjamin L. Cardin of Maryland, Thomas R. Carper of Delaware and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut — for doing the budget bidding for the Senate Democrats, who are facing off against the House Republicans over how to cut spending for the rest of the fiscal year, Mr. Schumer told them to portray John A. Boehner of Ohio, the speaker of the House, as painted into a box by the Tea Party, and to decry the spending cuts that he wants as extreme. “I always use the word extreme,” Mr. Schumer said. “That is what the caucus instructed me to use this week.”

A minute or two into the talking-points tutorial, though, someone apparently figured out that reporters were listening, and silence fell.
Then the conference call began in earnest, with the Democrats right on message.
“We are urging Mr. Boehner to abandon the extreme right wing,” said Ms. Boxer, urging the House to compromise on the scale of spending cuts and to drop proposed amendments that would deny federal financing for Planned Parenthood and for government agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency.
Mr. Carper continued with the theme, referring to some House Republicans’ “right-wing extremist friends.” Mr. Cardin decried Mr. Boehner’s giving into “extremes of his party.” Mr. Blumenthal closed by speaking of the “relatively small extreme group of ideologues” who are “an anchor” dragging down the budget negotiation process.

  1. Senator Charles Schumer: God of War

    With apologies to Percy Bysshe Shelley, author of Ozymandias

    I met a well-known pundit in D.C.
    Who said: Within the Senate leadership
    There is against us and our liberty,
    One man who carries in his iron grip
    The life and death of legislative acts
    And temper to destroy, instead of lose,
    All those whose voice and vote he feels he lacks
    Or those who would his dark demands refuse.
    And on his ornate Senate office door
    In Latin script of longhand does appear:
    “My name is Charles Schumer, God of War:
    My bidding do, or I your name will smear.”
    And so has he defamed the GOP
    With calumny discharged both night and day,
    As those uncompromising and extreme:
    For they would budget what we can repay.
