Big Labor’s Rollercoaster of Emotions

The unfortunate and untimely passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has Big Labor bosses and their liberal political allies cheering. Scalia would have been the decisive vote in a major Supreme Court decision affecting labor unions scheduled for this June (see Why Antonin Scalia was a jurist of colossal consequence). Justice Scalia’s influence would have impacted big labor and the union bosses, as he most likely would have voted in favor of union members in the Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association. The case involves a California teacher who claims her First Amendment rights have been violated by having to pay union dues, even though she isn’t a member of the union. This matter was further chronicled in a previous blog, Will the Supreme Court undo the damage done to the rights of millions of government workers?

Such a defeat would have been a death spiral for Public Sector Unions and most likely private sector unions as well, including their political allies. Without a replacement for Scalia, the vote could end up in a tie, considering the Supreme Court is now divided evenly — four liberal justices and four conservative justices. In the event of a tie, the decision of the lower court continues to stand.  In this case, the Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the labor unions.

Despite the fact President Obama will push for a quick replacement for Scalia, likely an extreme liberal candidate, which would tilt the Supreme Court to the left, and unions don’t technically even need this appointment, as they are currently in position to Win by Default. Unfortunately, this could also be devastating to Christian businesses in America. Without Scalia’s vote, cases involving Religious Beliefs and Christian Values may swing against such businesses due to a likely liberal selection by the President.

Big Labor’s cheering will be somewhat dampened by the news that West Virginia just voted to become the 26th Right-To-Work (RTW) State, effective July 1, 2016. West Virginia makes the fourth state to pass RTW legislation in the last 4 years –along with Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin. It is obvious that the country is moving in a new direction and that there is actually a movement for National RTW Legislation. This recent development, combined with the fact that Democrats may lose the 2016 Presidential Election and continue to be the congressional minority, has the big labor bosses crying! Undoubtedly, they will be a Major Presence in the 2016 Elections, as both they and the Democratic Party face extinction if they lose this Election.

It is imperative that the American public on both sides of the aisle wake up and urge the Supreme Court liberals not to vote along party lines! We cannot allow big labor bosses and their allies — Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and President Obama — to continue to build their socialistic/communistic agenda in an attempt to destroy the American Republic and its political system. All Americans must realize that ultimately The Great Pretender Wants Control along with the big labor bosses and far left radicals, who simply don’t know how to function in a free market republic!

I often experience flashbacks of the SEIU attacks made against my company when watching Hillary, Bernie and President Obama speak. They are using the same misguided promises, false information, lies, rhetoric and intimidation tactics the SEIU utilized when attempting to force unionize my employees, as chronicled in The Devil at Our Doorstep! It is imperative that a Supreme Court decision is not made in favor of big labor as a result of Scalia’s death, because it would Save Union Political Power at a time when our country is effectively heading towards collapse. This President and “great pretender” was trained in communist persuasion and his ultimate goal is to destroy America and establish Communism at the Highest Levels!

There is no doubt Scalia’s Death Throws a Wrench in the Bench. However, it is time for Americans from both sides of the aisle to band together, absent political persuasion, to assure that Scalia’s replacement will be one that does not represent political or socialistic/communistic ideology, but rather someone who Defends the Constitution of the United States of America and the future of this great country — as Antonin Scalia notably did for so many years.

Common Core, It’s All About Control

Like Obamacare, Common Core is another government debacle, being pressed by far the far left as legislation that, in Nancy Pelosi’s vernacular, “needs to be passed so we can learn what is in it.” Once supported by leading teacher’s unions, such as the National Education Association (NEA), American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), many union officials are now questioning its merits. They are also concerned, among other things, of another Obamacare “train wreck” rollout, (see We’re Flying the Common Core Airplane as We’re Building It and Union Joins Opposition to Common Core National Standards and Tests), as well as its merit as an education model. Despite early union support, it appears some union members are beginning to wake up and realize that Common Core may not be what they bargained for, specifically after the Obama Administration had the Department of Education (DOE) publish the draft of this new program.

Titled Promoting Grit, Tenacity and Perseverance, the DOE’s draft, in fact, promotes just the opposite! The program promotes control rather than individuality and achievement.,. In this case, instead of controlling our health, it is intended to brainwash the minds of future generations to continue down the “progressive” path. In essence, they want to make us all sheep – easy to herd and easy to control! This is further expressed in Common Core Uses SEIU Protest to Teach 3rd Graders about ‘Rights and Responsibilities’, where SEIU tactics were taught to young elementary students. It is astonishing to see the lengths this Administration and its union buddies, especially the SEIU, will stoop to try and bring down capitalism and impose it’s  socialistic and communist viewpoints (see Communism at the Highest Levels).

Common Core promotes neither grit, nor tenacity, nor perseverance, but rather compliance and subservience. A friend’s quote is on point regarding Common Core:

“Grit, tenacity, and perseverance’ were things I thought were developed in the home, in church or on the playing field and often translated into the class room or board room.  The thought of institutionalizing the concept, while well intended, strikes me as quite a challenge.  Kind of like a government trying to instill morality and ethics into a society while mocking God as having anything to say on the subject.”

Additionally, there is much speculation about whether the Common Core standards do anything to advance the modern student.  See the Common Core Standards’ Devastating Impact on Literary Study and Analytical Thinking; Is Common Core Leaving Students Unprepared in Math and Science?; Doubts about Common Core ; video of an Arkansas Mom Destroying Common Core.

The preceding press on the subject, along with the questions by teachers’ union leadership, are strong arguments for states to reject Common Core and the federal money the Obama Administration has dangled in front of them to embrace these standards. However, there is something even more persuasive that should be acknowledged . . . the loss of something through Common Core which made this nation great – promoting self determination, self reliance and self esteem… none of which are taught within Common Core (see Common Core Indoctrination: “The People Must Obey The Government’s Commands”).

Obituary of Common Sense

It is Us vs Them and time for all Americans to come together, whether liberal, conservative, union, non-union, regardless of ethnic or religious background. We must join forces to reject this Administration’s agenda of control in time to reverse the The Decline of American Exceptionalism. America needs a resurgence of common sense, not the tyranny of Common Core!
