  • Leftist teacher confronts student in tense political debate — student shuts her down with facts.

    “A highly charged political debate between a student and his teacher is garnering a lot of attention. The video captured 10 minutes of the confrontation, though the student said the debate lasted longer. What happened? The video begins as the Latino student and his teacher debate about police brutality in America. The student cites facts — that black-on-black crime is more prominent and police shoot more white people — but the teacher simply dismisses the argument by criticizing him. “You’re clearly a radical, a conservative,” the teacher says. As the debate goes on, the student says he obtains his statistics...

  • Becoming a Steelworker Liberated Her. Then Her Job Moved to Mexico.

    The man from Mexico followed a manager through the factory floor, past whirring exhaust fans, beeping forklifts, and drilling machines that whined against steel. Workers in safety glasses looked up and stared. Others looked away. Shannon Mulcahy felt her stomach lurch. It was December 2016. The Rexnord Corporation’s factory still churned out bearings as it always had. Trucks still dropped off steel pipes at the loading dock. Bill Stinnett, a die-hard Indiana Pacers fan, still cut them into pieces. The pieces still went to the “turning” department, where they were honed into rings as small as a bracelet or as...

    With great sadness, we must report that the rumors the NFL was going to seriously entertain having an “Activist Awareness” month. In which the league would celebrate the protests of anti-American players, are apparently true. The National Football League has met with the players union, the NFLPA, to discuss the national anthem protests that have become a almost a staple of pregame ceremonies across the league.

    A veteran flight attendant at Southwest Airlines says she was fired from her job after speaking out about her faith and criticizing her union. Charlene Carter of Aurora, Colo., filed suit against the company and union in a Texas federal court. She said her employment was terminated after she expressed her religious beliefs regarding abortion in Facebook posts and messages to union president Audrey Stone.**snip** and activity in opposition to Local 556." Carter criticized the union for using employee dues to fly two dozen officials and flight attendants to attend January's Women's March protest.

    Free Beacon ^ | September 21th 2017 | Charles Fain Lehman
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dao2ocR_cAc Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) seemed to think Thursday that describing the Soviet Union as an "enemy" deserved scare quotes in a speech on foreign policy. Sanders delivered a speech on his vision of "progressive foreign policy" at Westminster College. "I was Mayor, as some of you may know, of the city of Burlington, Vermont, in the 1980s, and that was a time when the Soviet Union was our ‘enemy'," Sanders said, emphatically flexing his fingers to suggest his disagreement with the labeling. Sanders was elected mayor of Burlington running against the incumbent Democrat; while in office, he self-styled...
  • Two couples start a huge brawl in a Walmart while their kids try to stop it (GREAT VIDEO AT LINK)

    A brawl was captured on video of two couples fighting in a New Jersey Walmart on Saturday while their young children look on in horror and try to stop the fight. The two sides appear to be a woman and man both wearing black tops versus another couple in red and burnt yellow shirts. As they beat on each other, two little girls can be seen trying to stop the chaos and hit on one of the women to stop while crying. A woman in a pink jacket steps in the middle of the brawl and screams at the parents...

    No rules for Congressional Federal Credit Union - George Webb advisedNOTE: Listen to the audio - the visuals are not directly related. The information is presented in a sarcastic tone. If I'm not mistaken, this is the voice of Dave Acton, brother of George Webb. Here is a transcript of this three minute video/audio clip. Here's that famous Armageddon beer commercial. Oh, this is Dave, by the way. Oh, hey! Do you want to send money to a terrorist organization? How about $165,000? Wouldn't it be great if we could all get together and support terrorism? That would be...

    There's an old saying that "he who distinguishes well teaches well." In other words, if one's going to talk about an important subject, one should be able to define his terms and tell the difference between two things that are not the same. This wisdom, unfortunately, is rarely embraced by modern pundits arguing about the causes of the American Civil War. A typical example can be found in this article at the Huffington Post in which the author opines: "This discussion [over the causes of the war] has led some people to question if the Confederacy, and therefore the Civil...

    t’s not just the VA where we’re having trouble cutting out the deadwood, however. This report from the Washington Post has at least one real eye opener in it. The head of the Treasury has been made aware of problems at the Patent and Trademark Office. Over there, a number of workers were found to be falsifying their time reporting, billing the government for hundreds of thousands of dollars for time not worked. In some of the most severe cases, workers put in two hours of time, then had the audacity to charge the government for a full day plus...

    Welcome to Independence Day weekend, New Jersey. It's a time to cast aside all the aspersions brought on by the Turnpike's industrial corridor and celebrate our proud Revolutionary War history. Simply put, New Jersey, more than any other state, was the place where the battle was fought, nearly lost, and ultimately won. With a four-day holiday weekend, it's a chance to make a historic scavenger hunt to put New Jersey's legacy in perspective. That is, if the state lawmakers can play nice on the budget impasse and get the parks they're supposed to run reopen. Here are some stops along...

    llinois is like Venezuela now, a fiscally broken state that has lost its will to live, although for the moment, we still have enough toilet paper. But before we run out of the essentials, let's finally admit that after decade upon decade of taxing and spending and borrowing, Illinois has finally run out of other people's money. Those "other people" include taxpayers who've abandoned the state. And now Illinois faces doomsday. So as the politicians meet in Springfield this week for another round of posturing and gesturing and blaming, we need a plan. And here it is:

    Hodgkinson campaigned for Sanders in Iowa while the Vermont lawmaker was running for the Democratic presidential nomination last year, the Washington Post reports. Charles Orear, 50, of St. Louis, who worked alongside him, called Hodgkinson a passionate progressive who showed no signs of violence or malice toward others. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” Orear told the newspaper. “I met him on the Bernie trail in Iowa, worked with him in the Quad Cities area.” He said Hodgkinson is a “quiet guy,” “very mellow, very reserved,” who stayed with him at a fellow Sanders’s supporters home in Illinois. “He was...

It was insensitive, it was offensive, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.” Drop dead, Jimmy Kimmel, you colossal ass....

    Boeing Co (BA.N) handily defeated a union drive by workers at the company's aircraft factory in South Carolina on Wednesday, as almost three-quarters of workers at the plant who voted rejected union representation. The secret ballot vote, conducted by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) at polling locations throughout the North Charleston plant, was the first for Boeing and a high-profile test for organized labor in the nation's most strongly anti-union state. The NLRB said 74 percent of the 2,828 workers who cast ballots voted against joining the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM).

    Texas Rep. Jody Arrington has introduced legislation to require VA to track the use of official time. An estimated 346 employees in the Department of Veterans Affairs do no actual work for taxpayers. Instead, they spend all of their time doing work on behalf of their union while drawing a federal salary, a practice known as "official time." ... The lack of accountability at the VA when it comes to monitoring official time suggests it might be worse ... Pointing to the waiting list scandals at the department, Arrington said the official time situation is reflective of the "broken culture...

    Federal agents are not the only ones trying to remove people from the Buffalo area who have entered the country illegally. If Bill Bing, a carpenters union official, discovers workers at local construction projects suspected of being in the country illegally, the union tips off authorities. That information has led to some raids and arrests, he said, although the detention last month of 32 individuals suspected of being in the country illegally and working at projects was not his tip. "We were not directly responsible for the information on those two raids," said Bing, the local representative for the Northeast...
