Eating Their Own: 600 IBEW Members Picket Carpenters’ Union Hall
Nationwide, unemployment reached 9.8% last week. However, in the construction industry, unemployment is nearly 19%. This is causing union bosses to think ‘outside the box’ on how to get work for their unemployed members–even if it includes stepping onto other unions’ turf. In April, the Carpenters’ union in St. Louis did what, in the union building trades, is the unthinkable–it set up an electrical union | Read More »
Waivers Double to 222 as More Unions ‘Opt Out’ of ObamaCare
For a law that was supposed to save America by making health care more affordable, the list of companies and unions who are being given the green light to ‘opt out’ seems to be growing by the day. Since the last wave of ObamaCare waivers was released a few weeks ago, the number of unions and companies that have received ObamaCare waivers has doubled to | Read More »
New NLRB Decision Legitimizes Unions’ Race to the Bottom
They say that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. If that is true, then every non-union worker and legitimate union agent has great cause to be concerned. You see, the union-controlled National Labor Relations Board just paved the roadway and gave every unscrupulous union boss and employer the means and the roadmap to severely undermine workers rights in America. On Monday, in | Read More »
Carpenters’ Union Caught Exploiting the Homeless (again)
They’ve been caught time and time again using the poor and homeless to do the jobs their own members won’t do for themselves. The Carpenters’ union has a history of hiring the homeless to march around in circles, chanting for union wages, benefits and pensions, things they don’t receive from the union. How does the union justify this rank hypocrisy? It’s all for a good | Read More »
A House Divided: Andy Stern’s Ex Slams UAW’s King Over South Korean Sell Out
Incredibly, there are people who are further to the left than former-SEIU boss Andy Stern. One of them happens to be Vladimir Lenin his ex-girlfriend, Jane Hamsher (former Hollywood producer and current proprietor of the ultra-left blog Firedoglake). Purportedly, Jane dumped Andy when he backed down from the public option in ObamaCare. Some months later, after Andy left the union movement and got a job as a | Read More »
A Death By A Thousand Cuts
We have written on numerous occasions that the Obama Administration is controlled by union bosses. Throughout the administration, union bosses have planted their people in order to do their bidding to help unionize America. After you read this post, it will be hard for you to disagree with the following statement: The Obama Administration is the most anti-business administration in the last 70 years—if not | Read More »
America’s Newest Form of Tribalism: Unions vs. Aboriginals
It’s been said that, as a productive civilization devolves, society will become ruled, not by law, but by special interest groups—each competing with one another to seize control in order to feed on the carcass of society. The more a civilization moves toward collectivism and devolves, the more citizenry will turn to tribalism—fighting over, like a pack of jackals, whatever scraps are left (or thrown | Read More »
Dirty Harry Reid Rewarding His Casino Backers With Online Gambling Monopolies
That really didn’t take long at all. Only a month after winning re-election with hundreds of thousands of dollars in casino contributions, Harry Reid is working to reward his campaign contributors by re-legalizing, then granting them with monopolies in online gambling.
As Debt Commission Plan Fails, Unions Have a Solution: Spend MORE money!
It’s official: Obama’s debt reduction commission has failed. Not surprisingly, former SEIU boss Andy Stern was among those who voted against the plan. The closely-followed US debt commission failed to pass its deficit reduction plan Friday, once more pushing back hard choices about America’s ballooning national debt. Only 11 of the group’s 18 members backed the plan, three short of the 14 required to send | Read More »
The Baseball Bat Behind Obama’s Federal Pay Freeze Gimmick
If you’ve passed through Milwaukee airport recently, you may have noticed a table in the center of the terminal with a man sitting amidst a bunch of union paraphernalia. The man, a union organizer with the American Federation of Government Employees is apparently set up day after day collecting support and signatures as part of AFGE’s drive to unionize the TSA blue shirts. Unlike the | Read More »
Let’s Build a Railroad to Nowhere, For the Sake of Building a Railroad to Nowhere.
Never mind that there is no legitimate business need. Forget the fact that it will spend billions in taxpayer’ money without any economic benefits (except for the union workers who will be paid for the make-work jobs). There is no plan, not even an idea for a plan. In sum, the BlueGreen Alliance (that coalition of unions and environmentalists) are calling for a new railroad | Read More »

This is the third in a three-part series. To read the first two, go here and here. ________________ The previous two posts about the Workers World Party National Conference, which was held in New York on November 13th and 14th, involved calls to seize property and fight for worldwide socialism, as well as the use of race to accomplish the overthrow of the U.S. capitalist system. | Read More »
Marxists Meet, Part II: Dante’s Inferno — The Marxist Plan to Use Race to Overthrow the U.S.
This is the second in a three-part series of posts. To read Part One, go here. ______________________ Not long ago, for someone to say that Marxists were using race to foster their socialist revolution, Lefties would rise up in chorus-like fashion and scream “McCarthyism!” Now, however, rather than dredging up a name that few young people today know, the Leftists cry “racism!” Yet, with the | Read More »
Marxists Meet, Part I: UFCW Rep. Calls for Seizing Private Property & World Socialism
Most people realize that the electoral victories on November 2nd were but a brief respite in the battle for America. What many do not know, however, it that a mere eleven days after the GOP swept the House of Representatives, the Workers World Party held its annual conference on November 13th and 14th in New York City to discuss the fight for worldwide socialism and | Read More »
Karma: SEIU Kicks Members’ Kids to the Curb
You remember how ObamaCare was all about making health care more affordable and protecting the most vulnerable, right? And, surely you remember how much money and resources (i.e., members’ dues) the purple behemoth known as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) put into the fight for ObamaCare—even going so far as (allegedly) beating Kenneth Gladney at a St. Louis town hall meeting. Heck, it was | Read More »
