"There can be no compromise on basic principles. There can be no compromise on moral issues. There can be no compromise on matters of knowledge, of truth, of rational conviction."

"There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil....In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit." Ayn Rand


    Pennsylvania’s Schoolchildren To Be Used As Props At May 3rd Leftist-Union Rally

    On Tuesday, across the state of Pennsylvania, unions and other Left-wing organizations will be boarding buses and heading to the state capitol in Harrisburg to engage in a mass rally to fight for economic and social justice and against budget cuts.  The rally, is being organized by the Coalition for Labor Engagement and Accountable Revenues (CLEAR) which is comprised of government unions, such as AFSCME, the American | Read More »

    N.J. Turnpike Tells Union Toll Collectors ‘Take It Or Leave It’

    Their choice is rather simple: Accept pay cuts or find another job. The unionized change-making cashiers toll collectors on the NJ Turnpike are considering the pay cuts this weekend. Though they have through Monday to either accept it or reject it, their union boss is recommending it. Although New Jersey will be going to a cashless toll-collection system in 2013, under their new two-year agreement, when | Read More »

    The AFL-CIO, Communism & Right-to-Work in Missouri

    There was a time when Communism was anathema to the U.S. labor movement. However, that ship has long since sailed. In fact, the tide shifted significantly in 1995 when John Sweeney, Richard Trumka and Linda Chavez-Thompson ousted Lane Kirkland and took over the AFL-CIO. Following their ascension to the leadership of America’s only (until 2005) federation of unions, the AFL-CIO dropped its ban of Communist Party members | Read More »

    Uncivil War: States’ Attorneys General Rip Into Union-Controlled NLRB in Letter

    President Obama’s union-controlled NLRB isn’t making any friends these days (unless you count union bosses, of course). Earlier this week, Obama’s labor board filed its lawsuit against Arizona and South Dakota for those states’ voters having the gall to pass amendments favoring the preservation of their right to a secret ballot. This followed last week’s complaint against Boeing by the union-controlled NLRB where American businesses | Read More »

    Become a Community Organizer: If You Control the Precincts, You Control the Party

    Figuring the headline might grab you, this is just a little ‘nudge’ to remind you about how easy it is to wrest control of the government from the claws of the professional, big-government establishment. If you’ve read even one of ColdWarrior‘s posts, then you know the importance of Precinct Actvisim. Thankfully, people are beginning to take notice and, more importantly, get involved in their precincts. | Read More »

    The Devil Dons Snowshoes: Massachusetts Dems Vote to Limit Unions’ Collective Bargaining

    The first time, it was the “Scott heard around the world.”  Back then, it might have been a fluke–like a snowstorm in July. This time, however, it is seemingly incomprehensible to think that Massachusetts’ liberal, Democrat-controlled legislature just voted overwhelmingly to strip unions of most of their right to bargain collectively over health care, striking their union benefactors in a Wisconsin-style smack down. The 111-to-42 | Read More »

    NLRB Sues Arizona & South Dakota Over Secret-Ballot Amendments

    On the heels of President Obama’s union-controlled National Labor Relations Board complaint telling the Boeing Company where it should locate its second 787 assembly plant, the NLRB has now decided to sue two out of the four states where voters audaciously passed constitutional amendments last fall requiring secret-ballot elections on unionization.  Previously, the NLRB had threatened to sue all four states. However, those plans were | Read More »

    Union Leaders Teach Labor Studies Courses on Communism, Violence, Industrial Sabotage & Frying Cats

    The University of Missouri has an expansive $1.9 billion enterprise with an operating budget of $500 million which, according to its website, 37%  comes through state appropriations. While the University’s Institute of Labor Studies may only be a small fraction of its budget, one must wonder why tax dollars are being used to fund a program that espouses Communism, teaches tactics in industrial sabotage (including | Read More »

    Californication: Unions Ride Roughshod Over Jerry Brown

    California unions spent tens of millions to put retread Governor Jerry Brown back into office. So, it is not all that surprising that he is, once again, doing California’s taxpayers no favors by letting the unions ride roughshod over him in recent budget negotiations. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown recently walked into budget negotiations with six different unions with saving $308 million in | Read More »

    Taking on The Establishment: You can’t win if you don’t play.

    Don’t get mad. Get motivated. Then…WIN. Our nation is drowning in debt. There are those within both political parties that, rather than taking the much-needed corrective action, seem determined—whether from their hunger for political power, their ineptitude, or just their own willingness to compromise to score points—to continue seeing this nation falter. They would rather publicly give the appearance of fighting while, privately, playing “let’s make | Read More »

    Behind the Obama Labor Board’s Bashing of Boeing is a Case Full of Irony & Union Failure

    On Wednesday, when President Obama’s union-controlled National Labor Relations Board issued a complaint against the Boeing Company for making a sound business decision to “dual source” its 787 production, it was another blatant example of a government agency run amok. However, while most of the nuts and bolts behind the dispute were detailed here, there are several other, more intricate details behind the NLRB’s legally | Read More »

    SEIU Plans Nationwide, Madison-Style, Class Warfare Protest Movement

    After some quiet time following last year’s departure of union bosses Andy Stern and Anna Burger, it appears the purple behemoth known as Service Employees International Union, has been quietly plotting its own Egyptian-style revolution. Given the ever-shrinking private-sector union membership ranks, as well as the realization that its political influence has shrunk as well, the SEIU’s plan is apparently to engage in a class-warfare based | Read More »

    In Shot Heard Around Business World, Obama’s Labor Board Issues Complaint Against Boeing

    On Wednesday, President Obama’s union-controlled National Labor Relations Board issued a complaint against the Boeing Company that, if ruled in the union and NLRB’s favor, may prove to have far-reaching consequences across the American business landscape. Ultimately, the outcome to this case will state whether or not America has, in fact, become entirely hostile to business (and the jobs they provide). The complaint was issued | Read More »

    AFSCME Boss Explains California’s Suicidal Tendencies…

    For a state that had so much going for it, California is sinking into the depths of its own self-made depression. Businesses are fleeing in droves (including 70 more since January), the state has a projected $42 billion budget gap and is already awash in unfunded liabilities (the teachers’ pension fund alone is $56 billion underfunded), and human kind has taken backseat to the survival of a | Read More »

    Is Obama Planning to Impose DISCLOSE Despite FEC, Congress & the Supreme Court?

    Having launched his $1 billion election campaign a mere two weeks ago, Barack Obama appears to be moving quickly to try to further tilt the political landscape to favor his union cronies through an Executive Order that implements certain portions of the failed DISCLOSE Act. As first reported by Pajamas Media, the White House is circulating  a draft Executive Order (in full below) to agencies | Read More »
