    President Biden expressed his support for labor unions and boasted about Democratic legislative victories during a Wisconsin labor event just two months ahead of the November midterms. Speaking at Milwaukee Laborfest, the president said Labor Day is “a special day to me as well because the fact of the matter here is I wouldn’t be here without unions! Unions. Electricians, iron workers … teamsters, laborers, bricklayers, transit workers, plumbers and pipefitters, steel workers.”

    AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka today made the following remarks at a rally to save health care: Good afternoon, brothers and sisters. I’m Rich Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO. I am proud to be here on behalf of the American labor movement. We oppose the Republican health care bill. It’s bad for workers. It’s bad for unions. It’s bad for America. It doubles down on taxing our health plans. It threatens Medicare and Medicaid. And it further tilts our economy toward the wealthiest few. In fact, this isn’t a health care plan at all. It’s a massive transfer of wealth from...

    President Joe Biden reacted to the news of the death of AFL-CIO Union President Richard Trumka on Thursday at the White House, calling him a “very close friend.” “He was more than head of the AFL-CFO, he was a good, close, personal, friend,” Biden said at an event at the White House. The president said that Trumka died during a camping trip with his grandsons, reportedly of a heart attack. “At least he was with people who adored him,” Biden said shortly. Trumka was 72. “We’re sorry for your loss, Mr. President,” one White Hosue reporter replied after Biden finished...

    We are each of us ultimately responsible only for ourselves and our own actions, yet the degree to which we may be held accountable for the misdeeds of others apparently varies by political party affiliation. On Wednesday, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published on its website what can only be described as a hit piece on Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson in which reporters Molly Beck and Patrick Marley highlighted the fact that Johnson is “taking fire from a liberal group for accepting more than $13,000 from a Washington state business owner who refused to hire Muslims and replied to emailed jokes...
  • Is It All Unraveling After the TIME Magazine Secret Cabal Piece?

    My colleague Bonchie wrote an excellent article about a very long, detailed piece in TIME magazine which exposes what many of us already knew: Democrat elected and unelected officials, Corporations, Big Tech, and legacy and social media colluded to turn the election in their favor.I recommend you read both: Bonchie focuses more on how we knew it all along, and how the Left just cavalierly used this manipulation and collusion to disenfranchise the other side. The TIME piece is a view into the mind of how people who feel they are on a righteous mission to save the world for...

    Time Magazine has published intricate details of what they deem “a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans.” The article even confirms both The National Pulse’s reporting on former Obama lawyer Ian Bassin, as well as’s assertion of the involvement of Norm Eisen in what amounted to a major admission of a globalist set up to leverage the coronavirus, mail-in voting, and corporate interest to oust President Trump from office. In a 6500-word article,...
  • Liberal Stealth Groups Paved Obama Win

    More than 4 million people who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 did not vote this year. But by applying new voter science, Obama nudged enough replacements in key states — many who were rare or first-time voters — to give him his margin of victory (leveraged even larger by the Electoral College). Years of stealthy multimillion-dollar efforts paid off forAmerica’s left in the 2008 and 2012 victories by President Barack Obama. Using new voter science to get rare and first-time voters to go to the polls, the races have changedAmerica’s electorate — those who make the country’s decisions by...

    President Trump's executive order temporarily expanding immigration restrictions to include guest-worker programs does not go far enough, the president of the nation's largest union group said on Tuesday. "Don't just do this temporarily," AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka told "Mornings with Maria." "Let's do this and make it a sane system so when there's a real need we can get people, but when there isn't a real need we shouldn't be able to bring people in to lower the wages of American workers." The order Trump signed Monday is meant to open more opportunities for Americans grappling with unemployment amid the...

    A group launched a 2020 ballot initiative Tuesday to expand Michigan’s civil rights law to include anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people, a step that would put the issue to voters if the Republican-led Legislature does not pass the measure. Fair and Equal Michigan, a committee backed by business, political and philanthropic leaders, submitted petition language to the Board of State Canvassers. Once it is approved, the group will have until late May to collect the roughly 340,000 valid voter signatures needed to place the initiated bill before lawmakers. If legislators do not adopt the legislation — similar bills have long...

The president of the nation’s largest labor coalition says yes.
