Did the Most Powerful Union Leader in the US Just Sign the Democrat’s Death Warrant?

Published

on

Democrats are not going to like this.

While Hillary Clinton will forever refuse to admit it to herself, one of her (many) fatal flaws in her ill-fated 2016 bid for the presidency was that she took the blue-collar vote for granted.

She didn’t even bother to visit states like Michigan or Wisconsin, states that Trump would, to everyone’s shock, go on to win.

Trending: AOC May Have Committed ‘Major Ethics Violation’ After Startling Discovery Uncovered

With Trump’s shock win. Democrats were smacked upside the head with the cruel reality that many of their constituents care more about putting food on the table, being able to afford health care, and job security than they do about intersectional politics.

While most assumed that the powerful union-industrial-complex was still deep blue, however, it appears that may be changing too, if the admission from the most powerful union boss in the nation is any indication.

Democrats need to get their act together fast, or their entire base might start jumping ship as well.

On Wednesday, AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka told Newsmax that he wouldn’t rule out endorsing President Trump in 2020.

“Well, he will be looked at [for the labor endorsement],” Trumka told Newsmax, “Everyone [of the presidential candidates] will be looked at.”

Pressed as to how serious he was about the AFL-CIO considering not endorsing the Democratic nominee for president for the first time since 1972, Trumka insisted “we will consider every candidate who’s running in 2020.”

Recalling the last presidential race, the union chief pointed out that “Trump got 3 percent more of our members than [Republican nominee Mitt] Romney did in 2012, but Hillary Clinton, unfortunately for her, got 10 percent less of our members than Obama did in 2012. And some didn’t vote for President or some voted third party.”

Trump gained among union members, Trumka felt, “because people were mad. They were looking for someone who was going to change the economy. They felt there were assaults on their health care and assaults on their pensions. People were looking for someone who will shake up the status quo, because the economy wasn’t working for them. Their wages were flattened and they found that candidate in Donald Trump.”

Trumka also said that while he has serious issues with what he perceives as Trump’s failure to follow through on most of  his promises to the American worker, he is also a big fan of  his trade dealings, adding that the President “is going in the right direction on trade and [the AFL-CIO] totally supports a rewrite of NAFTA.”

This is very, very bad news for Democrats who have long relied on the support of powerful unions like the AFL-CIO. It also gives quite a bit of weight to what many on the right have been saying all along about the Democrats and their globalist counterparts abroad, that the modern progressive agenda seems almost designed to put the American worker and American industry at a disadvantage.

At the end of the day, the most universal language is money, and voters will look to the candidate they believe can help them earn, and keep, their own. And if Trumka’s feelings are mirrored in other powerful unions across the US, the Dems must be shaking in their boots.

Former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan: Democrats’ battle against the border wall is driven by identity politics. President Trump declaration of a national emergency to build a border barrier is necessary according to Obama’s Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan.

The more the Democrats fights securing the border, the larger the price they will pay in 2020.

Per the Daily Caller:

Former President Barack Obama’s Border Patrol chief blamed the disagreement surrounding the border wall on identity politics, during a Friday night interview with Brian Kilmeade on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Mark Morgan was on Carlson’s show to discuss President Donald Trump’s decision to declare a state of emergency in order to reallocate funds toward constructing a wall along the southern border. Trump received $1.375 billion from the bill that he signed, and intends to dedicate an around $6.5 billion more from other agencies.

“Mark Morgan is the former head of the border patrol. And he’s heard the rhetoric, but he knows the reality. Mark, is the president making up an emergency?” Kilmeade asked.

“Absolutely not,” Morgan responded. “Brian, this is part of the frustration for those of us from a law enforcement, border security perspective. How many more statistics do we have to provide? How many more factually based examples do we have to provide? How many more angel families have to stand in front of some of these individuals before they finally say, ‘Yeah, okay, this is real.’ It’s just incredulous.”

In an interview with CNN former border patrol chief Mark Morgan said that President Trump had no choice but to declare a national emergency to get funding for the border wall because “Congress failed.”

The Democrats think they know so much more and are much better informed than those who are actually on the ground every day at the Southern border.

This is not the first time Mark Morgan explained that a border barrier was necessary. In a mid-January interview he stated:

“Before I was the chief of border patrol I was with the FBI,” Morgan explained. “And I actually supervised MS-13 gang force in southern California. We used to catch them on surveillance wires, and they would laugh, MS-13 gang members would laugh [at] how easy it was to go back between Mexico and the U.S. border.”

(…) The other day when they had the national press conference, and they [border patrol agents] got up, and they said the wall works, they’re right,” said Morgan. “And it’s not based on a personal political ideology. That’s based on historical data and facts that can be proven.”

This isn’t only about identity politics. It’s also about stupid, stubborn, defiant Democrats who have chosen to disregard their duty to represent the people in favor of petty party politics

MAGA MADNESS: Loony Lib Pulls Gun on Trump Fan Over Hat

I must remind you once again that we are all Americans, regardless of our political affiliation.  It’s time to start acting like it.

MAGA

What started out as a social media joke about the lunacy of the liberal left has now turned into a bonafide phenomenon called Trump Derangement Syndrome, for which we are too intrinsically intwined to have any true perspective as if yet.

Try to remember the shock and horror that you felt when you first saw the bloody, decapitated head of the President at the end of Kathy Griffin’s outstretched arm.  The steely, cold stare that she gave the camera was purely chilling.  Her eyes belied no emotion at the heinous and callous effigy in her hands, that she herself chose to create.  She had the uncaring and unflinching look of a cold-blooded predator.

It was unnerving to witness.  The photo-realistic, bloody head was enough to form a brick somewhere deep in my guts, but seeing Kathy Griffin’s absolute void of emotion struck me in ways that no political imagery had before.

Now, remember that this was all nearly two years ago now.  Today, in 2019, were we to see something like this, it wouldn’t have nearly the effect.  We’d scoff, and scold, but in the end we would chalk it up to “liberals being liberals”.

It is this passage of time, and the erosion of dignity within the democratic party, that has led to madness such as this:

Police in Bowling Green, Kentucky, say James Phillips was arrested after witnesses said he pulled a gun inside a Sam’s Club outlet because the victim was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat.

A police report notes that the suspect admitted to getting upset over the headwear and that he “flipped off” the MAGA hat wearer, according to WBKO-TV 13.

The victim, Terry Pierce, told police he had a right to wear the hat. “I have as much right to wear that hat and support my country and my president as he has not to,” the Sam’s Club customer said.

Pierce added that Phillips, “Pulled a .40 caliber out and stuck it in my face, backed up and said, ‘It’s a good day for you to die.’”

Phillips claimed that he told Pierce to put the gun down so they could settle the argument like men, but Pierce ran out of the store, instead.

I must remind you once again that we are all Americans, regardless of our political affiliation.  It’s time to start acting like it.

Sensibility is the only cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome.
