Original Article

A labor watchdog group is urging presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden to reject the support he's received from corrupt union leaders after a top party ally pleaded guilty to embezzlement in June. National Right to Work Committee president Mark Mix sent a letter to Biden on Thursday, calling on the Democrat to "put the rights of workers above the demands of union bosses" and "disavow the support" from top brass at the United Auto Workers union. Just weeks earlier, former UAW president Gary Jones pleaded guilty to embezzlement, racketeering, and tax evasion. Jones, a prominent Democratic ally, admitted to spending more than $1 million in union funds

He sent a letter to Biden! That's a joke. Biden doesn't know his wife's name half the time. Joe doesn't have a clue as to what is going on.

I'm sure Mark knows no Democrat would ever disavow the support of a corrupt union leader. If they did they would have to disavow the support all union leaders. But one thing for sure is Biden would let them off the hook, after all the whole investigation was never supposed to actually lead to anything, except the Democrat lost and Trump won. The swamp is slowly being drained.

The President of my Union the IAFF was one of the first to endorse Biden--in opposition to many of the membership, and he is suspected of cheating our pension of millions of dollars. Another corrupt Union icon. I say suspected because charges have been made and now everything is in flux, members don';t know what is happening and it';s all hush hush.

They are turning on one of the staunchest historical supporters of their cause? Wow, this truly is a new style of communism. By the way, these people are no more for actual workers than they are Trump supporters. Actual workers have been footing the bill for the nation pretty much since it was founded.

Dr. David Samadi, the director of Men’s Health at St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, New York, joined the Daily Caller’s Stephanie Hamill to discuss the effort to reopen schools, mask mandates and Dr. Anthony Fauci’s latest magazine spread. “I think it’s not appropriate for him right now to be posing for the cover of a magazine,” said Samadi. “This is not a celebrity contest, the lives of a lot of people are at stake, millions of jobs have been lost, many families have been affected.”

If there was any doubt left that it would be completely suicidal for President Trump to agree to a general election debate with live "fact-checking," as some dim liberals have proposed, his interview with Fox News's Chris Wallace just removed it. A clip of the interview set to air Sunday was released two days earlier, and in the snippet, Wallace asks Trump about the race riots throughout the country, specifically naming New York and Chicago, where violent crimes have spiked in recent weeks. Trump correctly noted that the cities with the highest crimes, including those two, are run from top to bottom by Democrats.

Usually, a president who delivered seven million new jobs and a historically low unemployment rate can run for re-election on his economic program. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic destroyed the economy. Thus, President Trump’s masterful stewardship of the economy is no longer apparent as Americans struggle to deal with economic lockdowns, virus mandates, and high unemployment. As the nation returns to lockdown mode again with an increase in virus numbers, economic progress will be curtailed. This issue is no longer the president’s best way to win re-election.

Despite phased reopenings across the country, the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic continues keeping unemployment too high and straining personal finances. With the unemployment rate at 11.1% and a severe credit crunch ongoing, many people need access to affordable, short-term credit. While some may turn to bank loans or credit cards, more than 12 million Americans rely on payday loans each year to make ends meet. It’s telling that a number of states with mandatory stay-at-home orders have deemed payday lenders so vital to the economy that they’ve been declared essential businesses.

Japan’s government will start paying its companies to move factories out of China and back home or to Southeast Asia, part of a new program to secure supply chains and reduce dependence on manufacturing in China.

According to a recent poll, two-thirds of voters trust Dr. Anthony Fauci, not President Trump, when it comes to information on the coronavirus. Well, if you think you can trust Dr. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, you now have every reason to question his judgment. In an interview with PBS NewsHour, Dr. Fauci, the trusted expert, actually lauded New York’s response to the coronavirus. “We know that, when you do it properly, you bring down those cases. We have done it. We have done it in New York,” he told PBS’s Judy Woodruff.

Last night Communist and Anarchist rioters attacked the statue of Christopher Columbus in Grant Park, Chicago. Police tried to guard the statue, and a pitched battle ensued, with 18 police officers injured and a dozen rioters–nowhere near enough–arrested. The rioters gained temporary ascendancy over the police, got control over the statue and attempted to pull it down, but without success–unlike the vandals who tore down the statue of Columbus on the grounds of the Minnesota State Capitol. You can read about it here. These are some very short videos that depict the melee:(Snip for links)No one who saw the Grant Park riots during the Democratic convention in 1968

If you think the economic shutdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic was bad, be forewarned: the economic impact of former Vice President Joe Biden’s new climate change plan would make the last few months look like prosperity. Biden’s original climate change plan was to spend $1.7 trillion over a decade and phase out fossil fuels by 2050. But that plan was unveiled during the primary season, and since then the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee has moved further left. Apparently, Biden’s earlier plan wasn’t extreme enough to please the far-left activists who surround him, so he went back to the drawing board and came up with something even more drastic.
