SEIU Is a Partner with Obama Youth Corps
By Patch Adams

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is not only known for their violent tactics against those who oppose them, but for being in bed with the Obama Administration. So what I have to tell you next should be no surprise.
Earlier I broke the story about how Obama's 21st Century Youth Conservation Corps is actually a vehicle that is being used to indoctrinate your children into not only believing in Global Warming, but as the Secretary of Interior, Ken Salazar said, to turn your children into "Engines of Change."
The 21st Century Conservation Youth Corps is being administered by the Department of Interior's 'Youth Department' that was created in 2009 by Ken Salazar. And according to the 'Youth Department's' website, Youthgo.gov, it's their job to "inspire" The Next Generation of Conservation Leaders:
"The Department of the Interior is uniquely positioned to help millions of young Americans reconnect with our natural and cultural heritage, put thousands of young people to work in the great outdoors, and inspire the next generation of conservation leaders.”
Who is partnered up with Youthgo.gov in order to help "inspire" those new Conservation Leaders? According to the partnership page of Youthgo.gov several government and leftist organizations including AmeriCorps, The Sierra Club and something called The Blue Green Alliance.
According to the Youthgo.gov, The Blue Green Alliance is a harmless organization made up of unions and environmental organizations.
"The Blue Green Alliance is a national, strategic partnership between labor unions and environmental organizations dedicated to expanding the number and quality of jobs in the green economy."
But According to The Blue Green Alliance website they are NOT just about saving the Planet, but pushing forward the ideas of collective bargaining:
"The Blue Green Alliance works on issues ranging from energy and climate change to transportation to workers' rights and green chemistry. Specifically, BGA is working to:
•Pass comprehensive clean energy and climate change legislation that is based on two overriding principles - the best scientific advice on reduction targets and solutions that create and save millions of American jobs;
•Restore the rights of workers in the United States to organize and bargain collectively;
•Establish a 21st Century trade policy that promotes growth and prosperity across all sectors of global society, and embeds enforceable labor, environmental, and human rights standards in our trade agreements; and
•Create an informed 21st century policy on toxic chemicals that protects workers and communities from dangerous chemicals, enhances public health and promotes safer alternatives."
The Blue Green Alliance accomplishes this work through:
•Comprehensive Climate Change and Energy Legislation. BGA advocates for its recent global warming legislative principles, which expresses support for an economy-wide cap-and-trade system.
•Renewable Electricity and Energy Efficiency Standards' Campaigns. In partnership with dozens of other advocacy organizations and businesses, BGA promotes the passage of state and federal legislation mandating the production of renewable electricity.
•Employee Free Choice Campaign. BGA advocates for the expansion of workers' rights in the United States through passage of the Employee Free Choice Act.
•Transportation Act Reauthorization. BGA advocates for transportation investments that create green jobs in freight rail, high-speed rail and other infrastructure projects that contribute to solving global warming.
The Blue Green Alliance is also interested in 'education' that involves the Communist/Socialist ideals of 'Social Justice' and they even brag about working with Al Gore's 'Green' Organization:
"The Blue Green Alliance Foundation is working to educate the public about the job-creating potential of environmental investments, including solutions to global warming, with programs including:
•The annual Good Jobs, Green Jobs National Conference, which took place in Washington, D.C. in 2009, brought together labor, environmental, business, academic, political and social justice leaders to share research and ideas for achieving a refashioned, green economy.
•Labor Climate Project. In partnership with former Vice President Al Gore's Alliance for Climate Protection, the Blue Green Alliance Foundation is working with union members across the country to educate blue-collar constituencies about the urgency and solvability of global warming and how its solutions can revitalize our economy and create good, union jobs."
Ironically, Carol M Browner, known Socialist and Obama's Climate Czar until she stepped down at the beginning of this year, is a former board of directors member for Al Gore's Alliance for Climate Protection.
Now you may wonder who belongs to this Socialist Sympathizing Labor type 'Green' Organization. Well according to their About Us and Membership page , several unions and environmental groups including The Sierra Club and SEIU:
"Launched in 2006 by the United Steelworkers and the Sierra Club, this unique labor-environmental collaboration has grown to include the Communications Workers of America (CWA), Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), National Wildlife Federation (NWF), Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA), Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA), American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), Sheet Metal Workers' International Association, United Auto Workers and the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW). The Blue Green Alliance unites more than 14 million members and supporters in pursuit of good jobs, a clean environment and a green economy."
If you click on the Map that is located on the Youthgo.gov website you will notice who the Youth Department of the Department of Interior is 'partnering' up with in each state. Not surprisingly, you will see that The Blue Green Alliance is working with the government in almost every state of the union. And according to The Blue Green Alliance website, their state-based chapters have a coinciding 'Green' agenda:
"State-based BlueGreen Alliance Chapters. The Blue Green Alliance Foundation and the local chapters of its national partners are working in states around the country on climate change, workers' rights, clean energy job creation, fair trade and green chemistry."
So it would seem that The Blue Green Alliance and SEIU are 'partnering up' to brainwash your children through Obama's 21st Century Conservation Youth Corps into believing in climate change, collective bargaining and social justice while at the same teaching them how to be 'Engines of Change' so they can 'refashion' the U.S. into some socialist 'Green' economy.
Don't you love watching your tax dollars at work?
