Government Shutdown Gives Union-Free America Temporary Reprieve From Union Assaults
For the vast majority of America’s private-sector workplaces, the nearly week-old government shutdown has provided a welcome, but temporary reprieve from assaults by unions accustomed to using Obama’s pro-union National Labor Relations Board. A notice on the NLRB’s website explains the effects the shutdown is having on the NLRB: The National Labor Relations Board is currently closed due to a lapse in appropriated funds… Only | Read More »
Unions Lie. (Shocking, isn’t it?)
There’s an ongoing controversy over the United Auto Workers’ efforts to unionize nearly 3,000 of Volkswagen’s workers in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Unfortunately, Volkswagen’s employees may be learning the hard way that unions and their organizers are
often dishonest when it comes to unionizing workers.
Last month, after using some legally questionable
tactics, the UAW claimed that it had acquired a majority of signatures
from VW’s workers.
Now, increasing the temperature in Tennessee, a group of VW workers have filed unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board, claiming the UAW misled the VW workers into signing union cards.

Truth vs. Lies: ObamaCare, Deconstructed
Union bosses were for it before they were against it
. They sold their members on a President who told them they would get better healthcare at lower cost when the exact opposite is occurring–and even though they are still pushing
for nationalized healthcare.
We knew all along its consequences would be disastrous. Now, we are all paying the price.

AFL-CIO Bosses Officially Commit To Legalizing, Unionizing Immigrants To ‘Change The Political Environment’
A few years ago, SEIU boss Eliseo Medina made some off-hand remarks about turning millions of the nation’s illegal immigrants into progressive voters. Medina’s remarks sent shockwaves around the Right blogosphere. Though it is widely known that unions like the SEIU and the UFCW already represent and take dues from illegal immigrants, the plan to legalize and then unionize the millions of immigrants who are | Read More »
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 »
AFL-CIO Convention Report #3: Union Bosses Commit To Targeting Southern Workers For Unionization
This is the third installment of the AFL-CIO convention report. As 1,600 union bosses and their Marxist allies meet in Los Angeles through Wednesday to focus on rebuilding union power, one of the resolutions passed has been Resolution 26–to “Develop a Southern Organizing Strategy.” This, of course, is by necessity, as most Southern states have workforces that are ninety-five percent (or more) union-free and companies, | Read More »
AFL-CIO Convention Report #2: Trumka’s Right-Hand, Ex-NLRB Member Craig Becker At Convention Keynote Address
Toward the end of AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka’s long and bloviant keynote speech to AFL-CIO conventioneers, a familiar face was caught during one of the camera pans of the convention stage–that of controversial former National Labor Relations Board member Craig Becker. In 2009, Barack Obama made history by nominating a little-known union lawyer named Craig Becker to the NLRB. It was a historic move because, | Read More »
AFL-CIO Convention Report: Union Bosses Call For Radical Overhaul of U.S. Labor Laws
Every four years, union bosses from the AFL-CIO’s now-56 unions gather to establish their organizational and political goals.

New Labor Management Standards? Union Bosses Get Another Radical Ally Into A Position of Power
Union bosses got another ally into a position of power last month with the appointment of union lawyer and labor professor Michael Hayes to become the director a little-known, but powerful Department of Labor sub-agency called the Office of Labor Management Standards (OLMS).
As the new director of the OLMS, Michael Hayes is not just a union attorney and law professor, he is an advocate with extremely pro-union views.

Never Forget: Why bikers are descending on DC on 9/11 to Counter-Protest the Million Muslim March
On September 11, 2001, I boarded a flight from Newark to Dallas. Although on a different airline, I left from the same terminal at around the same time as Flight 93.
Four hours later, when we were grounded in Memphis told about the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, I knew the Twin Towers had come down via cell phone but did not fully grasp what was told to me until we got off the plane and saw the CNN footage on a television in the terminal.
Though it’s been 12 years next month, like most Americans, September 11th is a day that I will never forget. In the months that followed September 11th, for the briefest of moments, our nation was united as one people, one party–all American.

SEIU’s Fast-Food Strikers May Legally Be Replaced, Perhaps Even Permanently.
They’re loud. They’re boisterous. They’re the SEIU…and they’re not as bright as they think. The fast-food workers who are being pushed by the SEIU to take to the streets in a “nationwide” strike on August 29th, as part of the SEIU’s four-year old plan to collect union dues from the fast-food industry’s 3.7 million workers, have placed themselves in a precarious position legally. As part | Read More »
Shiver me timbers! Disney Kingpins Send Popular Pirates Game To Davy Jones’ Locker
It’s a sad day in Tortuga, mates!
A friend forwarded an e-mail last night that stated that Disney has decided to shut down Pirates of the Caribbean Online on–of all days*–September 19, 2013.
The news marks the end of six years’ worth of pirate quests, plundering the high seas, as well as taking loot and gold from the evil empire and its corporate crony–the EITC (that’s the East India Trading Company for those of you unfamiliar with pirate lingo).

Something Evil This Way Comes With Obama’s New Labor Secretary
Thanks to Mitch McConnell and his fellow Senate Republicans giving in
to Harry Reid’s “nuclear” threat last month, America’s employers–large and small–and their consultants and attorneys will be shocked when Obama’s new labor secretary Thomas Perez releases the Department of Labor’s proposed “persuader” regulations in November

Fast Food No More: How The SEIU & Union Front Groups Want To Occupy Your Big Mac
With union bosses once again clamoring that they are ‘in crisis,’ union bosses are looking to expand their membership into areas that have been traditionally immune to unions. For the last several months, union-supported fast food workers have been staging “impromptu” strikes throughout the country. Like the union-supported Occupy movement before it, the fast-food workers’ efforts are being coordinated by media-savvy professional organizers employed by | Read More »
