Tech at Night: Tennessee leads the fight against socialized Internet
While the Net Neutrality power grab got all of the attention, just as important was the FCC strike against federalism the same week, that unilaterally attempts to override all state laws against socialized Internet in this country.

Only A Bully Argues The Debate Is Over
The Only Way You Can Avoid “Offending” A Progressive. “Shut Up.” He Explained. – Ring Lardner I’ve noticed something worse than usual about the Left of late. They are more brazen and ham-handed in their efforts to silence their detractors. They don’t outwit or out-debate them. They just explain that the debate is over before it is ever really allowed to | Read More »

Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) Uses Veteran to Push False Narrative
This really bothers me. On January 28th, Lamar Alexander’s campaign website ran an article entitled, “A Tennessee Veteran Sets the Record Straight.” In it, a U.S. Army Veteran defends Lamar Alexander’s role in the last budget battle that ultimately led to the passage of Ryan-Murray. The author of the article says Alexander isn’t to blame: Recently, I’ve seen a lot of misinformation about the budget | Read More »
Why Are VW’s German Union Bosses Backtracking On Their Expansion Ultimatum Now?
There really is only one way to describe the rather sudden reversal of position among VW’s German union bosses on the potential expansion of VW’s Chattanooga plant…
Last Thursday, Bernd Osterloh, the head of the Volkswagen’s global works council and a member of the company’s supervisory board stated that expansion of VW’s Chattanooga plant would not hinge on unionization
of the plant’s employees:

Why Doesn’t The UAW Want A Secret-Ballot Election At VW?
It is a long-standing precedent that unions are legally allowed to lie
to workers in order to get their support–and lie they do.
Take, for example, Carol Wilson, a Volkswagen employee in Chattanooga who was misled into signing a UAW authorization card.

“When I was approached to sign a card a year and a half ago, it was, ‘Oh, the card just means you want more information.‘”
Were a majority of VW’s American workers coerced and threatened into signing UAW cards?
With its future hinging on unionizing the American factories of foreign automakers, the United Auto Workers has been desperately courting Volkwagen’s 2700 employees in Tennessee since 2011. According to news reports on Wednesday, a majority of Volkswagen AG’s employees in Chattanooga have signed union authorization cards indicating the desire “to join VW’s Global Works Council and supporting cooperative and collaborative relations with the company.” The | Read More »

Lamar Alexander’s Taxpayer-Funded Campaign Monument
[Update: It turns out that Senator Alexander inserted a $400,000 earmark for the Tennessee State Museum into the FY 2009 Interior Appropriations bill. This is a classic feature of the circuitous campaign finance operation the political class has perfected over the years. They funnel taxpayer money to institutions that, in turn, help them win reelection.] If you want to understand everything that is wrong with | Read More »
Senator Lamar Alexander’s Fishy Voting Record
Seventeen trillion in debt. Obamacare. Dodd-Frank. Benghazi. The IRS Scandal. Immigration. You’d think that with all of these big issues going on in the nation, a Republican Senator running in a red state like Tennessee would be hyping his opposition to them. However, Tennessee’s senior Senator Lamar Alexander, has bigger fish to fry. You see, he is too busy touting his “Freedom to Fish” bill | Read More »
Study Suggests Obamacare Medicaid Expansion Would Cut Ohio’s Workforce
The Obamacare Medicaid expansion could reduce nationwide employment by up to 940,000, a National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) working paper released this month estimated.
