Teamsters steamroller United Food & Commercial Workers.
Union solidarity is a myth. David Freddoso has the details: essentially, the Teamsters and the UFCW are at cross-purposes when it comes to the Giant supermarket chain here in DC. The Teamsters are angry at Giant because Giant parent company Royal Ahold is closing a Teamsters-controlled facility in Jessup, Maryland, in favor of a non-union one in Pennsylvania*. This will be happening, and the real | Read More »

Too Late To Ask For A Refund, Obama Has Union Bosses & Other Lefty Loons Feeling Double Crossed
There must be some pretty cynical political strategists inside the White House who, all knowingly, believe that defecating on the deli sandwiches of the Democrats’ core constituencies before 2012 is an okay thing to do because—Hey! What’re they going to do?…Support the Republicans? Nevertheless, while union bosses, liberal allies and even African Americans publicly put on a happy face about President Obama, they’re privately grousing over a | Read More »
VIDEO: Barack Obama’s EPA Doesn’t Care About Jobs
The EPA has admitted that they don’t even consider jobs when they do their economic analysis. No really. They don’t even think about the potential impact on unemployment. This is appalling, coming from an administration that has said over and over and over again that jobs are the top priority. To recap: White House Briefing, 1/19/2010 “The top priority is to continue to work hard | Read More »
50 Million Missing Refugees and Scientists That Cheat On Their Taxes
In 1995 these environmental refugees totalled at least 25 million people,… The environmental refugees total could well double by 2010 (though there is no good estimate of today’s total)…. When global warming takes hold, there could be as many as 200 million people overtaken by disruptions of monsoon systems and other rainfall regimes, by droughts of unprecedented severity and duration, and by sea-level rise and | Read More »

Massive Budget Cuts
Cross-Posted: TobyToons.com (Conservative Political Cartoons)
Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) Says Senate Republicans Will Support Tax Increases
A few weeks ago, I reported that the Senate Republicans’ point man on dealing with the deficit, Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), said he’d support tax increases as a means to reduce the deficit. Chambliss promptly denied it. Yesterday, in the New York Times, Chambliss admitted he and the Senate Republicans will support tax increases to pay off the deficit. Mr. Chambliss has been increasingly outspoken in | Read More »

Obama’s czar end-run: ‘Signing statements’ he once opposed
While the debate rages among conservatives on the merits of the budget deal lawmakers struck with President Barack Obama, add an additional point of contention: Czars, of which the appropriations measure reached last week eliminated four. At least, that’s what House GOP’ers thought. The spending bill as written prohibited the White House from devoting funds to those czars directing the administration’s policy agenda for health | Read More »
Paul Krugman Calls for the Assassination of Paul Ryan
RedState co-founder Josh Trevino has noticed the following: back in January, Paul Krugman was one of many drooling idiot leftists devoid of any moral compass who tried to pin the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords on a lack of Republican civility. Even though, by the time Krugman’s column ran, it was clear that Giffords’ shooter was a mentally disturbed individual whose assassination plot was not motivated | Read More »
Newspaper Publishers in the Black Community Think Barack Obama is Foreign Born
The National Newspaper Publishers Association is affiliated with the hundreds of newspapers across the country that cater to the black community or, in the words of the NNPA, “The Black Press of America”. The Northeast Publishers Association is a smaller association that best characterized as the trade association for black newspapers in the Northeast. The NPA has prepared the advertisement below to go in black | Read More »
I Stand With Michele Bachmann
Just the other day I said the answer is “no” to the question “should the House GOP replace John Boehner.” The more we’ve found out about that budget deal, the more I think I might be wrong. Maybe we need Speaker Bachmann instead. On Friday, Robert Costa at National Review, got some insider dirt on the House GOP meeting that happened behind closed doors without | Read More »
Petitions stolen from Recall Dave Hansen (D) office?
Allegedly, the burglars were after the petitions gathered to recall Dave Hansen, who was one of the Wisconsin Democratic senators who fled the state rather than participate in the democratic process. Which – if this was in fact done by Democratic party operatives or sympathizers – would merely demonstrate that Hansen is in fact fairly representative of his party, at that. The good news is | Read More »
Ticking Time Bomb: Ongoing Labor Dispute Shows the Problem With Union Pensions
In Orange, CT, there have been two arrests over the last few weeks (the most recent on Saturday afternoon) in front of Dichello Distributors, where there is an ongoing labor battle between Teamsters, Local 443 and the company. The issue is over the company’s desire to exit the Teamsters’ grossly underfunded multi-employer pension plan, as well as asking union members to pay 10% of their | Read More »
