In a video shot a month before Scott Walker showed the world what a scurvy rat he really is during the conversation with the "fake" Koch and shortly before he dropped his class war budget "bomb" on the state of Wisconsin - billionairess Diane Hendricks of ABC Supply asked Walker whether he could turn Wisconsin into a one-party ruled dictatorship, a "completely red state, and work on these unions, and become a right-to-work" and how she can help. Walker quickly responded by saying he must first employ a "divide and conquer" strategy to destabilize the opposition. Over the following year, Hendricks would end up giving Walker $510,000 to support his game of deception effort.
JS Online Excerpt: Madison - A filmmaker released a video Thursday that shows Gov. Scott Walker saying he would use "divide and conquer" as a strategy against unions.
Walker made the comments to Beloit billionaire Diane Hendricks, who has since given $510,000 to the governor's campaign - making her Walker's single-largest donor and the largest known donor to a candidate in state history.
Walker replied that his "first step" would be "to divide and conquer" through his budget-adjustment bill, which curtailed most collective bargaining for public employee unions.
Documentary filmmaker Brad Lichtenstein, who says he captures both sides in his work, videotaped the conversation that Walker had with Hendricks and Mary Willmer-Sheedy, a community bank president for M&I Bank. The filmmaker was recording what Willmer-Sheedy and others in Janesville were doing to try to create jobs in an area hard hit by the shutdown of its General Motors plant and related businesses.
In the video, Hendricks told Walker she wanted to discuss "controversial" subjects away from reporters, asking him: "Any chance we'll ever get to be a completely red state and work on these unions -"
"Oh, yeah," Walker broke in. more>>>
Hendricks by the way is also co-chair of the powerful self-interest group Rock County 5.0, whose tentacles reach deep into local government. The area's media monopoly, Bliss Com's Janesville Gazette, can be considered the sixth point of the cartel's grip on the community as it consistently runs publicity cover for the private self-appointed group under the context of news.
If anything, what we learned by this latest episode is that Scott Walker speaks the truth only to billionaires, and under different circumstances this story and video would have been a major bombshell. But unfortunately it loses some its prominence simply because it only re-enforces much of what we already knew. If you're a regular reader of my blog, you already knew about Hendricks using her purchasing power to exert her cold right-wing engineering on others and about the local politicians who regularly pay homage to the Rock County 5.0's wealthy elitists. And, we also knew Scott Walker has divided much more than the unions. He divided our communities and our families like no one else ever to come before.
The only thing remaining is whether we will let Walker and his diabolical handlers conquer us on June 5th. The choice is ours to make.
