WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden hails unions at almost every turn, often declaring "unions built the middle class" and that his goal is to be "the most pro-union president" in U.S. history. But as he urges Congress to intervene in a labor dispute to avert a freight rail strike before the holidays, the president is facing a backlash from labor allies. Union workers hoped to secure paid sick leave in a final contract, among other assurances, but congressional action pushed by Biden would force some terms they oppose. "The actions speak for themselves. Don't tell me what you are. Show me


LOL - they think Old Joe gives a damn. 10% for the Big Guy is all he cares about.

They don't realize they have been played for decades, huh? Stop listening to the union leadership, and vote and elect Republicans who will work with you.

Typical. Unions want something in return for their loyalty to the Dems. And the Dems want something for their loyalty to the unions. And the circle goes round.

The company is offering something like 4-5% annual raises. Many people have not had raises in years. Then, since labor unions like the Democrats so much, they won't mind being replaced by the illegals coming across our borders.

In September they were close to signing the contract, the sick-pay issue outstanding, but the union leadership convinced the workers to a postponement past the election. There was a wink-and-a-nod "guarantee" that the sick-pay would go through. Whoops! Guess not. Go talk to the student-loan-forgiveness crowd. Y'all can have a nice cry together...and then take the knives out of each other's backs. Do it fast, it hurts less. Take it from us ex-Republicans. We've had experience of taking RINO knives out of our backs. When your wounds heal, we'll see you at the next Trump rally. MAGA!

As a labor aebitrator, I have handled and ruled on hundreds of different union agreements, but never, as far as I can recall, handled a union agreement that had no paid sick days included. I'm not excited about forcing train engineers, sick, crossing our country. And given the bidenomics inflation, who could afford to take an unpaid sick day?

History shows that Biden will abandon anyone once it becomes clear that it is in his political benefit to do so. Biden just played the Unions to get the Democrats past the midterm election. So much for old “Union” Joe Biden. Now it is up to the Democrat Congress in the next week or so to sweeten up the Union piece of the pie to keep the Unions on the Democrat plantation. It will be interesting to see how far the wimpy Republicans will cave to Democrat and Union demands to get a resulting piece of Democrat legislation passed to stop the impending rail strike.

Quebec Premier Francois Legault, concerned about the decline of the French language in the Canadian province, has set a new goal for immigrants: They should all speak French. Legault’s nationalist Coalition Avenir Quebec party was re-elected with a huge majority in October, partly on a platform of protecting French as the dominant language in the province of 8.7 million people. His speech to the legislature Wednesday laid out his priorities for his second term, including a plan to bar almost all economic immigrants who don’t speak French by 2026. “The objective is to stop the decline of French, in particular

The role wolves may have played has diminished since the original news release by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife on Oct. 7, but the predator has not been completely ruled out. Meanwhile, disease has gained ground as a possible cause. Jerry Klinglesmith, the Meeker-area rancher who suffered the losses reported Oct. 4, recently released what he said is the most likely

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles County health officials reported more than 5,400 new COVID-19 infections from a three-day period ending Monday, along with 15 new virus-related deaths. The county Department of Public Health reported 1,640 new cases for Saturday, 2,175 for Sunday and 1,599 for Monday. The 5,414 new cases lifted the county's cumulative number from throughout the pandemic to 3,535,493. Overall official case numbers are believed to be artificially low, due to residents who use at-home tests and do not report the results to the county, and others who do not get tested at all.

Too many people feel left out of Christmas celebrations due to their own faith – or lack of it – so the traditional Christian season should be downplayed, a UK-based diversity lobby group said. The call comes after statistics showed less than half of the population of England and Wales described themselves as Christian in the 2021 census, meaning Christianity is now a minority religion, as Breitbart News reported. Both atheism and Islam are making major gains as more people reportedly feel left out as a “heavy emphasis on celebrating the birth of Jesus,” can exclude others, according to Watch This Sp_ce, a self-described diversity and inclusion consultancy.

Conservative radio host Mark Levin went off on the “bonehead” Congressional Republicans threatening to derail Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) bid to be the next speaker of the House. Levin used his show on Tuesday to talk about how the Republican Party’s slim majority in the House of Representatives may cause a struggle for McCarthy to get the votes he needs to succeed Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Hard-right members of the Congressional GOP have publicly opposed McCarthy’s bid for the speakership, so the House minority leader is currently trying to bring these factions in line and secure the 218 votes he needs.

House Democrats voted Wednesday to make Rep. Hakeem Jeffries their leader in the next Congress, replacing 82-year-old Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Jeffries won the post in an uncontested election after Pelosi and the two other incumbent members of the Democratic leadership, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, opted to step down. Jeffries, a 52-year-old New Yorker, will be the first African American to serve as House Democratic leader. "Leadership is incredibly important," said Jeffries. "When we get an opportunity as diverse leaders to serve in positions of consequence, the most meaningful thing we can do in that space is an incredibly good job."

Oh, Joe, bless your clueless heart; you don’t even see the irony. Yes, your intentionally destructive policies “did so much” harm to everyday American families that “nobody knows the effects” of how bad things will get–and how long it will take to recover after you’ve vamoosed from office, one way or another. Biden, on Tuesday, defended his ill-fated “American Rescue Plan” for the zillionth time by arguing that the (at least) $1.9 trillion spending spree helped enable local governments to keep paying their employees (which does zero to help productivity). He also boasted of his additional trillions in spending for government-subsidized health care, manufacturing, infrastructure, and so-called “green energy.”

The two-hour policy debate was heated among the left-wing board members, according to news reports. Supporters argued that police can be trusted to use the robots, which could help stop a mass casualty event. Opponents said approving the use of killer robots was like something out of a science fiction movie, and a threat to the poor and to people of color.
