Rumore v Taxpayers, Parents, and Children
In 2016, when both friends of Phil Rumore, the president of the Buffalo Teachers Federation (BTF) suggested he retire, Rumore began his final assault on the taxpayers, parents and children of the Buffalo Public Schools (BPS).
For over 30 years, Rumore had successfully and brilliantly negotiated on behalf of Buffalo teachers against a cadre of “halfwits” – people who were elected or appointed to represent the interests of parents, students and taxpayers – but merely pandered to the BTF.
A “halfwit” can be someone who is intentionally motivated to serve interests other than the community or someone who is just actually stupid. In any event, Buffalo’s halfwits were very inclined to sympathize with union desires and concerns while remaining oblivious to the desires of the citizens of Buffalo for their children to have a quality opportunity for a good education.
Teachers’ contract lingered until Rumore was ready.
The contract between the BTF and the BPS expired 12 years ago, but because of something unique in New York State – the Triborough Amendment to the Taylor Law – the terms of expired union contracts with municipalities continue in force until a new contract is signed. The members get to keep all their benefits, along with the yearly step salary increase built into the old deal.
During the 12 years that the expired contract terms remained in place, teachers were receiving step increases in wages averaging around 2.5% per year. Consequently, despite sporadic feigning to negotiate, Rumore was in no hurry to finally settle the contract until he decided to retire.
BREAKING: Rigging The Election, Veritas Video IV- Top Clinton Ally Caught Accepting $20K Foreign Donation…UPDATE: Creamer: We’re On Call Daily With Clinton Campaign, Mentions Woman Accuser He Believes Will Be Coming Forward Against Trump…
Robert Creamer is the Democratic power broker we met in prior Veritas videos. Creamer is a partner in Democracy Partners and a general consultant to Americans United For Change. He was behind inciting violence and dirty tricks at Trump events and outlining possible ways to commit voter fraud. Here he details how well he knows Barack Obama, explaining that he’s known him since he was a ‘community organizer in Chicago’. He notes, “I do a lot of work with the White House”. He even claims some of the work for the Obama involved “trying to make America more like Britain on gun violence issues”.
We broke the story that Creamer had visiting the White House a total of 342 times between 11/21/2009 and 6/24/2016, with 47 meetings with Barack Obama. Some of those meetings also included Michelle Obama.
Creamer also notes how his operation is driven by the Clinton campaign team. “Every morning I am on a call at 10:30 that goes over the message being driven by the campaign HQs.” He notes he is in charge of ‘Trump events’ for the Clinton campaign, characterizing himself as a ‘consultant to the Clinton campaign’.
Creamer speaks specifically of his coordination with a man in the ‘Brooklyn office’ [Clinton campaign office]. “I just sent him a note beforehand when we came here that said “My understanding is there might be another revelation of another woman talking about Trump this afternoon”. This would seem to indicate coordination or at least knowledge of women before they came forth.
Brad Woodhouse who took a $20,000 donation For American United For change from an apparent foreign donor from Belize got antsy once he realized that the Veritas videos were coming out. He then returned the money. However, as O’Keefe notes, Woodhouse didn’t have a problem taking the money beforehand.
What follows is my 100-day action plan to Make America Great Again. It is a contract between myself and the American voter – and begins with restoring honesty, accountability and change to Washington
Therefore, on the first day of my term of office, my administration will immediately pursue the following six measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC:
• FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;
• SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health);
• THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;
• FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service; Read more ›
