Scott Baker from Breitbart TV
GLENN: We go to Scott Baker. Scott Baker is with Breitbart TV. And one of the guys who has just broken an awful lot of stories. Breitbart TV and really Andrew Breitbart's, what is it, biggovernment.com, they have been breaking a lot of stuff. Scott is a guy who, first of all, was a journalist who actually said, hey, maybe we should check out that Barbara Walters View thing and see if there was any truth to that. Thank you for that. Which, by the way, I mentioned. And she hadn't seen that report. But anyway, Scott, you have been helping us with the Van Jones and the Anita Dunns of the world and everything else. You have new, new audio or video with SEIU. What do you have?
BAKER: Yeah, I know you are probably really excited to focus on the labor unions and the economy. We're all still on such a giddy high from the Obama speech last night.
GLENN: Isn't that fantastic? Have you ever seen anything like that honestly, Scott? Did you see the faces of the cadets?
BAKER: I have the we have the video on our site of the one cadet like totally sleeping.
GLENN: Hang on. I've got to look that up. Hang on.
BAKER: Yeah, he is like, he is gone into another world.
GLENN: Did you see hang on. Did you see the, did you see the story from Der Spiegel?
BAKER: Oh, yeah. Look, I thought, even I I know we're off topic. I was on the floor of the Fleet Center at the Democratic convention when Barack Obama gave his speech. I was not as a Democratic delegate. I was there as a journalist. And I was
GLENN: What's the difference?
BAKER: I was 20 yards from the podium, and as a student of rhetoric, I was you know, I was blown away. At the time I didn't realize Bill Ayers had written it. But I have been amazed in this last year, to me, how bad this president has been in communicating. And I thought when you have to rise to the moment to rally your nation, I really still expected there to be some sort of glimmer in him that he was going to be able to do this, and I was absolutely blown away that it was, that it was such a failure.
GLENN: This is Der Spiegel today in Germany: Never before has a speech by President Barack Obama felt as false as his Tuesday address announcing America's new strategy in Afghanistan. It seemed like a campaign speech combined with Bush rhetoric. One can hardly blame the West Point leadership. The academy commanders did their best to assure the commander in chief's speech would be well received. Listen to this: Just minutes before the president took the stage inside Eisenhower at all, the gathered cadets were asked to respond, quote, enthusiastically to the speech, but it didn't help.
That's amazing. Can we verify? I mean, I know it's Der Spiegel, but can we verify that, Scott, at all? Can you see if you can get another source on that?
BAKER: Yeah, you know what's interesting is I know because when I was watching one of the cables, you know, they were showing the feed of the room. And so I know that somebody has those raw feeds. In fact, I think it was on Shepard Smith they kept cutting to, like, the raw feed of the hall, we're 20 minutes away and all of this. So somebody's got, it has to be on there.
GLENN: Hang on just a second. Stu, ask the TV people to go back through the raw feeds and find that.
GLENN: I mean, just minutes before the president took stage inside the Eisenhower hall, the gathered cadets were asked to respond enthusiastically to the speech. I want that video.
BAKER: Yeah. And you could just tell in their eyes that they were that they could not get in sync with this president. And it really was, to me was pretty despicable.
GLENN: All right. So now let's go to SEIU because they are having the big job summit tomorrow at the White House. And, you know, of course, the unions will be there. The Chamber of Commerce and small businesses will not be there. You know, the usual representatives of small businesses. But the unions will be.
BAKER: Right. Well, and SEIU, of course, they love the Chamber of Commerce. That's why they held that big rally outside their building like, shame, shame, shame!
GLENN: Of course they do.
BAKER: Yeah. And they will have all of those cabinet members who have never worked in the private sector, as you pointed out the other day. The SEIU, have you heard of SEIU? Do I need to give you a little bit of
GLENN: No, we're pretty sure who they are.
BAKER: So here's I just have an angle, and I have a couple of questions.
GLENN: All right.
BAKER: Because we've talked about all kinds of issues. But I want to deal with an issue about undocumented workers. But first I think you guys have a couple of clips that I sent over because I want just to refresh people about, you know, how deeply involved in the electoral process SEIU is.
GLENN: All right.
BAKER: And a lot of times we get to hear from Andy Stern, their honcho about this. But I think we have a clip of Anna Berger who's the secretary treasurer.
GLENN: Do you have Anna Berger?
BAKER: Go ahead and hit that one.
VOICE: Can you tell us something about how you did that briefly and how you are going to hold the Democrats (inaudible).
VOICE: Well, we believe in having our members involved. So we have 3,000 of our members off the job in battleground states making sure that they were talking about the economic issue and why Barack Obama is going to be the president (inaudible). We have 100,000 of our members on weekdays, on the days off, door knocking, phone banking, reaching out to people who are just like them about why the importance of Barack Obama. We spent $84 million communicating with our union members, workers who are just like us across our country about the importance of the urgency of the selection.
GLENN: Okay. Kind of important.
BAKER: Well, you know, I think when you start outlining saying we take our members off the regular jobs to send them out on campaigns, we have 100,000 of them out there working for Obama and we're spending this, you know, this $80 million. You kind of get the sense of what SEIU is all about. Now, if they're going to spend tens of millions of dollars and they're going to put these members and workers out there to work, there's I started to think, well, what about you know, who are these people? And so Pam Key over at Naked Emperor News who contributes to our B Cast show, she was digging around and she found a clip of a guy named Eliseo Medina who is the SEIU Executive Vice President. So he may not be the most familiar name to the audience. But so I wanted to emphasize as before we played the clip that he is a big guy in SEIU. This is not just some local organizer. He is one of the honchos, too. Now, he is going to talk here about the kind of people that are SEIU members. And he's going to list through a couple of nationalities. I think my favorite part of this clip is the last line.
GLENN: Here we go.
VOICE: As you have heard, SEIU is the largest union of immigrant workers in the country. A number of them are undocumented. But let me hasten to add these are not just Latinos. In our membership are Eastern Europeans, Irish, Polish, Indians, Chinese, the whole world is represented among the undocumented and also in our membership. We also represent American born workers, legal residents.
GLENN: Wow. We also, we also represent.
BAKER: Yeah. That to me, I was blown away. Like, it's not just Latinos. It's the whole world of undocumented workers... and a couple of Americans.
GLENN: I wonder, you notice he didn't say there were any Middle Eastern people.
BAKER: You know what? You are right.
GLENN: He did everything. We've got people who, they are from Atlantis, they lived under the ocean for a long time. I'm trying to think. Is there anybody else that we've we have a couple of penguins from Antarctica.
GLENN: We're thinking about branching out if there are any space aliens, we've got some people from Area 54 that are in SEIU.
GLENN: Or Area 51. I mean, I'm trying to think. Is there anybody else? Nope, we've got all the regions covered.
BAKER: I think, you know, actually I was just checking here. I think they are organizing those aliens on the V Show on ABC.
GLENN: Are they really?
GLENN: I think they are the aliens from the V Show.
GLENN: When is
BAKER: By the way, a lot of people wondered why SEIU kept hands off on the ACORN prostitute thing. They didn't. They wanted to organize those El Salvadoran prostitutes.
GLENN: When is this posted, this video?
BAKER: We haven't, we did not put it up just yet. We're going to have that up this afternoon.
GLENN: And we will probably, we will probably have we will probably have more on the TV show with you and this information. But Scott, you're always the best. And thank you so much for being here for everything that you and Naked Emperor News does to keep video. I mean, these people are just going to hang themselves with their own words, you know.
BAKER: And the key thing to take out of this is remember I'll give you this as the last thing. They used to ask their locals to give six bucks for every one of their members into the political fund. Then they changed the Constitution to mandate it, right? That you have to do this. Now, my question is, if you're Eliseo Mendez and you are saying we know we have these huge numbers of undocumented workers and now we're mandating our locals to contribute six bucks per worker into our fund and they can go out and spend that on all kinds of organizing activities, that means that SEIU is knowingly investing millions of dollars from undocumented workers.
BAKER: Foreign nationals into the U.S. election process.
GLENN: Last thought on this. Remember SEIU. They are the lead designers of the healthcare. I mean, they are right in there. I mean, that's according to Barack Obama. He first consults them. And you really think they are not going to cover undocumented workers, illegal aliens in healthcare? I don't think so. Thank you.
