    NEW YORK (AP) — Ahead of Labor Day, unions representing millions across several working-class sectors are threatening to authorize work stoppages in support of the Black Lives Matter movement amid calls for concrete measures that address racial injustice. In a statement first shared with The Associated Press, labor leaders who represent teachers, autoworkers, truck drivers and clerical staff, among others, signaled a willingness Friday to escalate protest tactics to force local and federal lawmakers to take action on policing reform and systemic racism. They said the walkouts, if they were to move forward with them, would last for as long...

    A downtown rally turned into violent clashes between protesters and Chicago police Saturday night, as the city’s top cop blamed “agitators” for “hijacking” the demonstration and protesters blamed officers for violating their rights and blocking their march, hitting them with batons. At least 17 officers were injured, including a cop repeatedly hit in the head with a skateboard and another officer who may have suffered a broken hand, according to Chicago police superintendent David Brown, who briefed reporters at CPD headquarters Saturday night.

    American Thinker ^ | K.E. Campbell
    An investigative report on Black Lives Matter (BLM) published four and half years ago foretold current events in many respects. The report, Reds Exploiting Blacks: The Roots of Black Lives Matter by James Simpson at the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism, is the best source I've found as to BLM's origins, tactics, funding, and goals. The report begins with this: The Black Lives Matter movement casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner-city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades....

    The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. The Black Lives Matter movement claims that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers”...

    A Brooklyn legislator was accused Wednesday of delivering a bizarre tirade against Jews, while ripping Mayor Bill de Blasio as a sellout, during a local community board meeting this week. Assemblywoman Diane Richardson’s 50-minute rant during the Board 17 meeting Monday night faulted Jews for gentrifying in her district, which includes East Flatbush, Flatbush, Crown Heights and Prospect Lefferts Gardens, according to an eyewitness.

    ALBANY, N.Y. — For years, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and some Democratic leaders have had an antagonistic relationship with the left-leaning Working Families Party, a labor-backed group whose increasing influence and independence have only widened the divide. So when Mr. Cuomo and state leaders decided this year to expand a public campaign financing commission’s authority — giving it a mandate to rewrite election laws affecting smaller political parties — the independent party’s leaders feared the worst. On Monday, their concerns were realized: The commission approved a slew of changes that will make it harder for political third parties to survive...

    The progressive group, whose electoral influence has grown since it backed Bernie Sanders four years ago, is now supporting Ms. Warren for the Democratic presidential nomination. The Working Families Party, the labor-aligned progressive group whose electoral influence has grown since the 2016 election, has endorsed Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts for the Democratic presidential nomination, a boon to her candidacy as she attempts to position herself as the main challenger to former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.

April 25, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. When D.C. Councilmember Trayon White came under fire for blaming Jews for controlling the weather, dumping a Holocaust Museum tour and donating to an anti-Semitic Nation of Islam event, the loudest voice in his defense came once again from the Working Families Party. The WFP is a spinoff of ACORN. Rafael Shimunov, the WFP’s Creative Director, claimed...

    NY Daily News ^ | 2/07/15 | Annie Karni
    In a sign of the growing pressure Hillary Clinton faces from the left, the Working Families Party is considering backing the movement to draft Sen. Elizabeth Warren to run for President, the Daily News has learned. One person said the effort was not so much a bid to get the Massachusetts senator to run but to “Warrenize Hillary” by pushing her to adopt more liberal policies. At a meeting of the WFP’s advisory council last week, executive committee members wanted to bring the idea to a vote, sources said. Those pushing to publicly back Warren — who has said she...

    In September, when AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka spoke to the convention of the Missouri AFL-CIO, he addressed the recent events in Ferguson, Mo., that led to the shooting of Michael Brown, saying that it was important for labor to be a part of the necessary conversation about race in the United States. Now the AFL-CIO, including the federation's director of civil, human and women's rights, Carmen Berkley, and Neidi Dominguez, assistant director of community engagement, will be in Missouri this weekend as part of the "Justice for All" events, including a national march and rally in St. Louis and Moral Monday-themed...

    Elizabeth Warren clenched an endorsement from the Working Families Party last week, but new revelations emerged Monday that show the think tank her daughter heads donated $45,000 to the progressive political party ahead of the endorsement. Amelia Warren Tyagi is the chairwomen of Demos, and the donation to the Working Families Party in 2018 coincided with her mother's then-impending decision to run for president. Even though the two progressive groups were founded just two years apart, in 2000 and 1998, last year marked the first time Demos donated to the minor political party. According to a 2018 tax filing from...

    Amelia Warren Tyagi is the oldest child and only daughter of rising Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren. Despite the inevitable pressure generated by her mother's tremendous success, Tyagi has forged a path for herself as a prosperous author, entrepreneur, and chair of a progressive think tank called Demos. Now, her connections – like Hunter Biden's – are raising eyebrows. Twitchy reports that Demos gave the far-left Working Families Party $45,000 in 2017-2018. That might not seem noteworthy, but the Working Families Party recently endorsed Elizabeth Warren for president, to the surprise of many.

    US Representative Joe Crowley, who just two weeks ago lost the Democratic Party nomination for New York’s 14th Congressional district to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in dramatic fashion, looks set to remain on the November ballot as the candidate for the Working Families Party. Oops. **SNIP** New York’s election laws do not allow the WFP to remove Crowley from its ballot line. Nor is Crowley allowed to simply remove himself. The only option is for Crowley to somehow make himself ineligible. Or die. Crowley (somewhat understandably) is reluctant to do this. Having achieved the most dramatic primary win of the season and...

    ACORNÂ’s tactics live on in the senatorÂ’s elevator confrontation with activists from a Soros-backed group. On Friday morning, two women raced past reporters and security officers and blocked a senators-only elevator in the U.S. Capitol. They cornered Arizona senator Jeff Flake, who had just announced he was going to vote yes on moving Brett KavanaughÂ’s nomination out of the Judiciary Committee and onto the Senate floor for a full debate. The women wouldnÂ’t let Flake leave until they had yelled at him, face to face, for several minutes. Anyone who thinks the two left-wing activists acted without a well-thought-out plan...

    [I begin] with the story of a series of Socialist scholars conferences that Barack Obama attended when he lived in New York City between the years 1983 and 1985. And when I finally reconstructed what had gone on at these Socialist conferences that Barack Obama attended, I truly was amazed because what I saw was a kind of map of Barack Obama’s entire subsequent political career. It was at this Socialist conferences in New York in the mid-’80s that Barack Obama encountered the groups, the strategies, and the mentors who would guide him throughout his entire political career. [T]hese Socialist...

    When the dust from the wreckage Barack Obama has turned the Democrat Party into begins to settle, the left will start to look for a candidate to “save America” in 2016. As has been expressed on this page several times, the messes of New York City’s Working Families Party/Democrat/Communist Mayor Bill de Blasio and Al Sharpton have made will be a heavy load for the Jackass Party’s standard bearer. Comrade de Blasio, who was elected with virtually no White support, was swept into office by greedy minorities who think that seeing the earned wealth of other people is the same...
