    Democrats are reportedly panicking over plans by former President Donald Trump, the front-runner of the GOP presidential primary, to visit auto workers striking against General Motors (GM), Ford, and Stellantis in Detroit, Michigan. Members of the United Auto Workers (UAW) are currently on strike against the Big Three, pushing to secure a new labor contract that includes wage increases to keep up with inflation and commitments that their jobs will not be eliminated by Biden’s Electric Vehicles (EVs) agenda. This week, sources confirmed to Breitbart News that Trump will skip the second GOP primary debate and instead visit striking auto...

    The United Auto Workers strike against the 'Big Three' Detroit carmakers entered its second day on Saturday, and some union members are questioning whether President Joe Biden has done enough to back their cause. The strike involves 13,000 workers so far, less than a tenth of the union's total membership, but UAW's strike fund has enough cash to support a full 150,000-member walkout for up to three months. The union representing workers at General Motors, Ford and Stellantis is seeking a 40 percent raise for its workers. The walkout is limited for now to three assembly plants: a GM factory...

    The Detroit Board of Police Commissioners came out blasting facial recognition systems for being racist Thursday night. It is the latest fallout for the false arrest of a pregnant woman for a carjacking she had nothing to do with, leading to a current lawsuit. A vote to ban facial recognition for the Detroit police failed tonight, which would have kept the department from using it for a year. "This technology appears to be 'techno-racism,' it’s the new Jim Crow that’s falsely arresting innocent people here in Detroit," said Commissioner Willie Burton."This is the third incident here in the city of...

    Tens of thousands of illegal ballots have been found in Detroit, Michigan during an explosive criminal forensic study into the 2020 election results.

    LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — New polling results are in … … the polling data in the U.S. Senate race with Elissa Slotkin, the Democratic frontrunner, shows she is tied with somebody who has not even formally announced their candidacy. James Craig, former Republican candidate for governor and former Detroit Police Chief, has not spent a dime in this race, but yet he’s at 39% and she’s at 40%. And in mid-Michigan, where Slotkin is a Congresswoman, she is actually losing to Craig: 37% for her, 44% for Craig. But in an equally interesting twist for Slotkin, she is leading Craig...

    Consumers already contending with a squeeze on their bank accounts due to inflation are now facing more pressure as businesses introduce new tipping features at self-checkout machines. Companies, including airports, bakeries, coffee shops and sports stadiums, have now introduced the self-serve tipping option, where customers can leave tips including the typical 20%, despite facing minimal to no interaction with any employee, according to a recent report by The Wall Street Journal. Customers report feeling obligated to leave a tip as they question where and to whom the extra money is actually going, but businesses are increasingly embracing the option to...

    While the eyes of the nation are on San Francisco’s proposal to pay every black person $5 million in reparations for an estimated total cost of $175 billion, Motor City won’t be left behind. Last year, 80% of Detroit voters in a 78% black city cast their ballots in support of a reparations commission. That was much higher than 63% poll numbers but local election results tend to outperform the polls due to the civic work of the Wayne County Cemetery Voters Association. Chairwoman Lauren Hood of the Detroit City Planning Commission said that she didn’t know who the 20%...

    A pizza delivered to the wrong Detroit house led to a shootout Thursday night. Sources say a pizza was ordered to a home on Penrod near Schoolcraft and the Southfield Freeway. However, that pizza was delivered to the wrong house, and the people who got the errant delivery ate the food. When the people who ordered the pizza confronted the neighbors who ate the pizza, yelling turned to gunfire. As many as 30 rounds were fired during the fight, and five people, including two 14-year-old boys, were shot.
