Nearly 95 percent of the private sector workers in America do not belong to a union! So as we observe Labor Day this year, with Donald Trump enjoying a significant amount of support from blue collar workers here in the Midwest, let’s step back and re-evaluate who the term “labor” actually represents when it is used today, as opposed to what the term meant nearly 100 years ago, and how it has been hijacked by politicians, union bosses and the mainstream media in the decades since the “labor movement” of the early 1900s changed America.

Here in Detroit, when we hear the term “organized labor” used by the media, it typically refers to UAW-represented automotive workers, or harkens back to the labor movement of the early 20th century, which included miners, the steelworkers, truckers and other blue collar workers who banded together and fought for reasonable hours, better wages and safer working conditions.
That was when workers had to organize and elect leaders to represent them in “collective bargaining” negotiations with owners and members of management to force large private corporations to provide health insurance and retirement benefits to their workers. It would be hard to find someone today who would deny that those types of changes were needed at the time, or that they have helped create the large “middle class” that America now enjoys. To most blue-collar workers of the 1900s, unions were sacrosanct. That was then!
And when the term labor is now used by the mainstream media, they want you to think of those struggles; but in the 21st century, labor unions increasingly represent not lower-class underpaid workers who are being abused by greedy employers, but instead members of the middle and upper-middle class, who are frequently college educated and among the top 20 percent of wage earners in the country.

And in fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2015 nearly half of all union members worked for the government. Public sector workers (those paid with your tax dollars) are five times more likely to belong to a union than private sector workers.
Today union bosses want “more” political power, and use workers’ dues almost exclusively to serve the Democrat party. In 2014, UAW bosses increased the number of dues taken from members by 25 percent, in spite of overwhelming opposition from workers, who are now hired in at a lower wage.
While workers here in Michigan can now refuse to pay dues, even while working under the terms of a negotiated contract, thanks to the signing of the Right to Work law in 2012, most feel intimidated and are afraid to exercise that right to resign from the union due to implied repercussions from union bosses and union loyalist coworkers.
What has been done by union bosses over the decades since labor unions helped get federal legislation such as The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 passed has not always further advanced the cause of American workers and Americans in general, especially since 1959, when Wisconsin became the first state to allow collective bargaining by public sector employees.
Unions used to fight for the workers, but now union bosses increasingly use workers to fight to increase the union’s disproportionate political power and influence in Washington! According to the Pew Research Center, nearly 90 percent of workers in America do not belong to a union, and nearly half of all workers have an unfavorable opinion of unions, yet they are one of the most powerful and influential groups in Washington, D.C.
Many union members are looking to Donald Trump’s candidacy this year to return the power to American workers and bring jobs back to America that left after bad trade deals, including NAFTA, which was signed by union-endorsed President Clinton. Hillary Clinton has been endorsed by the UAW here in Detroit in spite of having supported NAFTA and the TPP.

Labor Day is for honoring our working Labor force. The bipartisan establishment has stabbed labor in the back big time by opening our borders to the cheapest labor in the world! America’s pay their workers 4X the average rate than the next competitor Mexico and 10+ times the illegal refugees from Europe’s labor rate! A vote for the flipping Hillary on TPP, which she has invested so much of her time passing, is obviously just a ploy to win at any and all cost!

IT’S NOT ABOUT HILLARY’S, ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER,’ SOCIALISM, OR UNFOUNDED PERSONAL ATTACKS ON TRUMP! IT’S ABOUT ‘MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN,’ THE ‘RED WHITE AND BLUE,’ AND TRUMPS NEW ‘AMERICA FIRST’ PARTY FOR THE LABOR FORCE OF AMERICA!!!This will result in the end of America as we’ve known it for our entire life! Obama’s Ivy League education’s ‘Cloward and Piven Strategy’ was paid for by outside interests with the knowledge of the free pass ignoring our founding father’s citizenship requirement in the Constitution to become President, and destroying America from within!
Obama’s success can be seen in the current numbers! Do a little research and check out the numbers since Obama came to office back in 2009! Check out the numbers on unemployment, poverty, increase in welfare and food stamps, Obamacare, funding of illegal Immigrants and refugees, the deficit, our military, our education failure compared to other countries, our inner city murder rates, and the racism inflamed incidents in America by this administration! If you invest just a small amount of time researching Obama and Hillary’s beliefs you would never, ever, vote for Hillary Clinton or any of the candidates representing the ‘New America Socialist Party’ and the continuation of Obama, through Hillary!
What your witnessing is a full court press that is solely targeting the American people by the Socialist (Old Democratic Party), the Republican insider political bosses, the ‘Paid to Report’ Media, and the ‘sheeple’ who choose to use Trumps neophyte political honesty against him while betraying our founding fathers and Constitution that has made America great for the last 200+ years!

Hillary has prepared and is preparing to receive the Cloward-Piven baton from Barack in 2016, unless of course she is stopped.
As a reminder, the Cloward-Piven strategy is a political plan created in 1966 by two Columbia University sociologists to overload the U.S. public welfare system with the goal to replace it with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.”
I echo again, it’s neither a coincidence Obama graduated from Columbia University nor that others who espoused the Cloward-Piven strategy were a group of radicals who have been a part of his life and education: Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky, Bernardine Dohrn, George Wiley, Frank Marshall Davis, Wade Rathke and George Soros, among others.
What’s also not a coincidence is how close Hillary ran in the same circles. Like people that train at a distance under the same coach but come together to run the same relay race, so Hillary has entered the track salivating for the opportunity to grab the Cloward-Piven baton from Barack.
What’s the evidence? It’s abundant!The ideologies, politics, histories and strategies of Cloward, Piven and the Clintons are more closely intertwined than most know. In the 1960s, they all were sipping from the same straw of Saul Alinsky, Chicago’s notorious revolutionary Marxist community organizer and his ideas for radical social change.

First, Robert Chandler, a retired Air Force colonel and former strategist for the White House, the Departments of State, Defense, Energy, Justice, and the CIA, explained in the Washington Times, much of [the Cloward-Piven] strategy was drawn from Saul Alinsky.” There’s no doubt Alinsky’s life and work served as the coach and plan for Cloward and Piven.
Second, Hillary’s similar discipleship devotion was clearly seen by her 92-page college thesis paper on Saul Alinsky, which is a glimpse behind the present veil of her politically savvy and guarded gloss into the heart of her true ideologies.
Even Bill Dedman, investigative reporter for NBC News, had to admit the young 21-year-old Hillary had an infatuation with the “old radical from Chicago.” In her own words, Hillary characterized Alinsky as possessing a “compelling personality” and “exceptional charm.”
No surprise that in 1993, the Clintons asked officials at her alma mater to hide Hillary Rodham’s senior thesis from Clinton biographers, at least that’s what her thesis adviser and friend, professor Alan H. Schechter, said they wanted after taking the call from the White House.
Nevertheless, NBC’s Dedman notes how David Brock, in his 1996 biography, “The Seduction of Hillary Rodham,” called Hillary “Alinsky’s daughter.” And Barbara Olson, who tragically died in the Sept. 11 attacks, used an Alinsky quote to introduce every chapter of her 1999 book, “Hell to Pay: The Unfolding Story of Hillary Rodham Clinton.” Olson also posited how Hillary’s thesis was locked away because she “does not want the American people to know the extent to which she internalized and assimilated the beliefs and methods of Saul Alinsky.”
Barbara Ehrenreich, Frances Fox Piven’s friend, collaborator and intellectual disciple from the American Sociological Association, spilled the beans on some early Clinton collaborations and relations with Cloward and Piven: “In 1983, [Frances Piven] co-founded, with Cloward, a group called Human SERVE, which was dedicated to the idea that if citizens were allowed to register to vote when they apply for aid from government programs or for drivers’ licenses, some of the historic administrative encumbrances on the right to vote could be overcome. The poor in particular, who often lack the time for voter registration, would be effectively enfranchised. Human SERVE’s approach was incorporated in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, popularly known as the ‘Motor Voter Bill.’
President Bill Clinton signed the Motor Voter Bill into law and none other than Richard Cloward and his wife, Frances Piven, were standing behind him as he did. Even Wikipedia explains that Cloward was a “primary motivator” for the passage of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 known as “Motor Voter,” which forces states’ department of motor vehicles to offer voter registration. Sounds so benign, right? Hold on.

What’s not surprising is how the “Motor Voter” law has morphed to incorporate more Cloward-Piven-Clinton strategies. For example, in Oregon, legislators have just enacted a subsidiary law that registers a person to vote when they obtain or renew a state driver’s license. That might sound all fine and dandy, too, until one realizes that a stone’s throw away in neighboring states like California, they are doling out licenses to 1.5 million illegals over the next three years. How long will it be until California’s Motor Voter laws extend voting rights to illegals, too?
And California is not alone. Nevada and Washington – also butting up against Oregon’s borders, have also joined the ranks of states offering access to driver’s licenses despite immigrant status. And don’t forget Hawaii, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Illinois, Vermont, Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware, and Washington, D.C., which are also a part of that non-citizen driver’s license distribution union, according to the National Immigration Law Center.
You see, it’s not a coincidence either these new drivers and voters, who have flooded and are still flooding into our country through porous borders, are also at the heart of plan to overload the U.S. welfare system under the Cloward-Piven strategy. As Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa told WND: “I do feel this attempt to flood the border with illegals is a playing out of the Cloward-Piven theory.”

In 2010, Frances Piven, who is also one of eight honorary chairs in the Democratic Socialists of America, gave an interview to the progressive Common Dreams in which she confessed: “The important development is the emergence of a feisty immigration movement that contemporary unions have no choice but to support, especially unions with large numbers of immigrants in their ranks. … Together with [students and their universities, service workers – not industrial, and] immigrants, these are the constituencies that will give birth to new protest movements.”
You see, it’s a win-win-win-win-win-win too socialist Cloward-Piven progressives like Obama and Hillary. Illegals flood the country; illegals get driver’s licenses; illegals get voter rights; illegals get welfare benefits; illegals overload the U.S. welfare system; illegals keep progressives in office, who crown the Cloward-Piven strategy and the fundamental transformation of America as a victory.
An interesting story about Piven and her own driver’s license demonstrates the power of her connection to the Clintons, as told again by her friend, Barbara Ehrenreich: “Sometime in the mid-1990s, Frances found herself on the way to the airport without her driver’s license. She called Richard at their home and asked him to find it and bring it to her at the train station. He failed to find it, and instead brought her a photo of herself and Bill Clinton taken at the time of the signing of the motor voter bill. That was enough to get Frances on the plane.”
A first-year political student can easily see where a Hillary presidency will take Cloward-Piven strategies. You see, the plan to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” has a successor, and she must be stopped.~~
When politicians accept these amounts of money to buy their vote, then it's properly called graft and bribery for which they should be indicted and prosecuted. The big money sellouts listed below will undoubtedly bow out in 2016 as they know the end is nearing and they will relocate to Switzerland or South America with the Bushes. A recall election can remove a corrupt politician before his term expires. 'There is a national election every two years in America where every seat of the House is up for re-election, while 1/3 if the Senate is re-elected. The only remaining power which American citizens still possess is the power to vote and file a lawsuit. It's not necessary to join a party to run for office. We need hundreds of intelligent and incorruptible people of high moral fiber, dedicated to reversing the damage already inflicted by the Zionist World Order sellouts, to run for US congress and state seats in order to stem this dire, life-threatening hemorrhage of our freedoms and sovereignty. It's the only thing that younger, thinking Americans ought to be dedicating their time to. It is their future in a free America that is being destroyed. ...Ken Adachi
Despite vocal and over-whelming public opposition to the secret Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal, the Senate passed fast track authorization.
We, The People, were sold out.
Money talks and the big winners are the multi-national corporations and their puppet politicians that we “elect” to support them.
Who were the Big Winners? The Congressmen who received millions to push the trade deal through.

It’s a Who’s Who of long-serving leaders of The House and The Senate: House Leader John Boehner, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell.
Contributions from pro-Obamatrade lobbyist alone were enough to make very wealthy people of those who are supposed to represent the citizens, and the period of time immediately preceding the vote, that between October 1st of last year and June of 2015 is still unknown. Certainly the pot was “sweetened” considerably more as the deadline drew nearer.
Contributions to House members from forces favorable to Obamatrade outnumbered those from those opposed by a factor of 8.6 times, $197,869,145 to $23,065,231. The differences were even more stark in the Senate, with a total of $285,225,162 in financial incentives being meted out from supporting groups and only $27,569,149 from the opposition, over ten times as much. There were 32 House members with over a million dollars in contributions and many who were just below that threshold. In the Senate, only five Senators were below the one-million-dollar mark, and two of those, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Mike Lee (R-UT) voted no, and against betrayal of their country.
The formula in the House seems fairly simple, at least as far as rewarding those in leadership positions.
Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) got a cool $5 million and change, Mike McCarthy (R-CA) half that at $2.4 million, and Steve Scalise (R-LA) half again at $1.2 million.
For Paul Ryan, the price of American sovereignty was $2.2 million.
In the Senate the picture is even uglier, and much more blatant.
Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “acquired” $9.2 million.
John Cornyn (R-TX) $5.3 million.
Orrin Hatch $4.2 million, the third member of the Senate trio of traitors forcing this upon us.
Marco Rubio pocketed $3.9 million for voting to tie us to a bill he never read, with his fellow presidential candidate Lindsey Graham “earning” $3.4 million.
TPP guarantees the profits of multi-national corporations at taxpayer expense and will destroy thousands of jobs. It’s a horrible deal for all Americans but the top executives and major stockholders of multi-national corporations and paid off politicians.
Nearly 500 MILION dollars were contributed to 'YOUR' elected representatives to support this legislation.
It IS simple. WE were sold out. Our politicians are bought.
The response is simple. We only have ONE answer.THROW THEM ALL OUT!!
Here Are the Top Five Scariest Things About the TPP:
The TPP will push wages down! As it stands, the TPP encourages outsourcing of jobs to countries with low wages, inadequate labor rights and poor environmental standards.
There are only weak mechanisms to enforce labor rights! The TPP allows too much discretion in the enforcement of labor rights.
Workers who petition the government may not see results for several years, if at all! Meanwhile, foreign investors can act independently to enforce their rights. Currency manipulation could wipe out any potential tariff reduction benefits.
The administration has failed to include enforceable currency rules in the TPP! This means that U.S. manufacturers, hoping to increase exports, could continue to face closed markets and increasing import competition from products subsidized by countries with undervalued currencies.
Foreign investors will be able to bypass the American court system!
Investor-to-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) will allow foreign companies to bypass American courts and file suit against laws and regulations they believe will interfere with their expected profits.  Countries outside the TPP, namely China, will be able to write the rules of trade without joining. For example, weak rules of origin for automobiles mean that China and other non-TPP countries will be able to benefit from the TPP’s tariff reductions even if they don’t follow any of the TPP’s rules. SCARY BONUS: The administration has been characterizing the TPP without showing the public the factual basis for its claims. The lack of transparency is more “Mirrors” than it is “Alice Through the Looking Glass. “This is a bad deal for America's working families.
