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

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.

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.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

Published

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
