Democrats and Labor Unions Block Meaningful Immigration Reform

Democrats Protect Unions with low immigration quotas for Construction JobsIn a conference call with U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) late last week, I learned that Democrats are working against meaningful immigration reform to appease growing opposition from labor unions by setting unrealistically low quotas from labor visas for construction workers. Cornyn told me that labor unions have discriminated against the construction industry by setting the false quotas in order to protect the unions. Hispanic voters should take a deep look at what the Democrats and labor unions are up to and how it will affect immigration numbers.   Read more »

Saul Alinsky And His Connection To San Antonio, Texas

Being a Native San Antonian, I have to admit that I love my hometown, but maybe it is only the memory I love. Having attended Catholic schools from K thru 12th grade, I am very well aware of the importance the church places on giving to the poor. Missionary nuns from Belgium at St. John Berchman taught me during my elementary school years and the Sisters of Diving Providence taught at the high school where I attended.

AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott today joined Senator Kel Seliger and Representative Charles “Doc” Anderson to express support for legislation to help strengthen Texas’s right-to-work laws. Attorney General Abbott made the following statement about the proposed legislation:

The Left Exposed!

PJ Media's Steven Crowder released a video showing union thugs sucker punching him while they attacked and collapsed the America for Prosperity tent with women and children in it. In Michigan, the governor signed a law allowing workers the right not to join a union and the union thugs came out in full force. To paraphrase John Lennon, imagine a world in which workers do not have to work in a union or pay dues and that's one thing that a few union leaders might not be want to imagine.   Read more »

Bankruptcy Courts Part 4 - Fairness and Consistency Go Down the Drain

Bankruptcy Judge Robert DrainDuring my investigation series, "A Lawless Presidency", I interviewed Ohio Congressman Mike Turner (R) about the Delphi bankruptcy case. Turner said the "entire process was a miscarriage of justice." After investigating this case further, it is clear why he said that. As you will see below, what happened to the Delphi Salaried Retirees during this bankruptcy process was unfair is unquestionable. But was it a consistent application of the law?

Walmart Protests Amount to Little

Walmart reported its best Black Friday ever (Black Thursday, really, since the sales started on Thanksgiving night), in spite of union-inspired strikes at a number of stores across the country. “We work hard, so we just want a decent wage,” said one participant.

Now please, I already know that Walmart trucks use government roads, etc. Not the point.   Read more »

Bankruptcy Courts Part 3 - Hostess Bankruptcy: Unions, Management or Investment Bankers...Where's the Dough?

Wonder where the Hostess jobs went?A staple food group icon of an overweight America now becomes an example of what is wrong in our business system and bankruptcy processes. In an announcement last Friday, November 16th, Hostess CEO Gregory Rayburn, said "We deeply regret the necessity of today's decision [to shutdown Hostess' entire business], but we do not have the financial resources to weather an extended nationwide strike."  So how exactly was the money spent after the 2004 restructuring by private equity firm Ripplewood Holdings?  Was it well directed toward rebuilding the company's business?  The decision to force Irving, Texas based Hostess and their entire brand line of products out of business will mean the end of 18,500 jobs and two billion Twinkies.  But who walked away with the dough?

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE:  According to the Houston Business Journal at 2:50 p.m. today, Hostess Brands, Inc. and the BCTGMI Union have entered into a confidential mediation stopping the planned shutdown of the company.   Read more »

Insanity Definition (doing the same thing and expecting a different result) Illustrated in Cleveland, Ohio

Yesterday, the day before Election Day 2012, after completing my last “knock on door and distribute literature” assignment as part of the Mighty Texas Strike Force, I drove from the Cleveland suburbs into the city, to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections building. This election location was open for Early Voting on election eve, and the lines were literally multiple city blocks long.

En route from suburb to city, I passed through neighborhoods featuring sagging front porches, roofs missing more tiles than remained intact, litter strewn and weed-overgrown empty lots, more businesses shuttered than functioning, and a depressing sense of bygone bustle and business. The main still-in-business entities I saw were bars.   Read more »
