Tired of Winning Yet?

The Supreme Court recently issued a decision called Janus v. AFSCME. In this decision, SCOTUS said that unions could not force non-union employees to pay union dues. 

Unions argued these dues were required to cover the cost of collective bargaining, from which these people would benefit. They specifically stated they would not go to political lobbying. The court disagreed and stopped the unions. Now the same unions who claimed these funds did not go to leftist political groups are whining that they have had to drop their lobbying donations by as much as 30% -- tens of millions of dollars no longer going to leftist advocacy groups.

Unhappy Palestinians

On 3 July, Palestinian leaders strongly condemned a new Israeli law that will freeze money transfers to the Palestinian Authority (PA) to punish the PA's payments to families of those jailed for attacks. 

The move threatens the existence of the cash-strapped PA and amounts to "theft," said Saeb Erekat, PLO Secretary General. Both he and a spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called it a "dangerous decision." Abbas spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina said the Palestinian leadership was planning a response to the move, which he said would cross "one of the red lines" if implemented. 

No sane justice system in the world rewards the families of the perpetrators of the crime while supporting the criminal in jail. That is moral hazard because it incentivizes attacks—criminal behavior. The statements by the Palestinian leaders are extortion threats, which are criminal acts in any sane legal system.

The Democrats 

So far nothing has worked for them. Now they have a new winning strategy that will win people to their cause. Hollywood and the Music Industry is joining in, just like they did with Hillary.

President Trump has branded himself as pro-flag, pro-America, pro-business, pro-worker, and lowered taxes. The Democrats have been forced through horrible strategy into being anti-flag, anti-America, anti-business, anti-worker, and in favor of higher taxes.

A left wing commie that I know said that he thought that President Trump would win by a landslide in 2020. I agreed with him.

President Trump has done the one thing every Republican politico in my lifetime has talked about, and none have taken any effective steps to do: convincing blacks to free themselves from the clinging darkness of the Democrat plantation of dependency and welfare-addiction and into the light of self-reliance and manhood.

  1. I will pray that he does win in 2020. All these illegals worry me.

    1. The Democrat party is promising LOTS more illegal aliens, who will vote for them (illegally) since we don't have a voter ID law in the USA... I wonder how that happened?

    2. They have been busy working on overturning, or trying to, voter ID laws in states that have them.

    3. How can you have Democrats winning without illegal aliens voting for them?

  2. Trump's re-election in a landslide will produce serious coattails: and with any luck at all, an increase in GOP seats in the House and Senate.

    I can hardly wait until the midterm elections. I want to watch Martha Radditz and Celia Vega cry like babies when they watch that red-blue state map turn beet red, even in commie states like Minnesota and Maine.

    All we have to do is keep Maxine Waters and Cryin' Chuck in front of the cameras, touting their plans to snatch back our tax reform crumbs, take our guns and outlaw the display of the American flag. We won't have to spend a dime on this campaign.

    1. I see the dominoes falling the same way that you do. And it will be a beautiful thing. Raising taxes on working people to pay for the shiftless and promising to open the borders to bring in illegal aliens somehow plays well with some on the leftist fringe. However, (in essence) promising to have aliens replace the lower wage crowd will push Democrat voters in that category onto the Trump train.

  3. +1 For SCOTUS. Anytime anyone can ram the poker up the Hershey highway of a union and twist it makes me smile.

    1. The corrupt unions who have been feeding the Democrat's trough for decades are now in a twist and the flow will turn out to be a trickle. CNN and MSNBC predicted the end of the world. Made me smile too.

  4. +1 on the winning. We must never forget the enemy gets to vote.

    1. You can vote for President Trump and economic bounty or you can vote to return to the 8 miserable years of Obamanation. I know that there are a number of lemmings who will follow the likes of Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), but I have more faith in America than to think that disease is pervasive.

    2. I personally have a hard time reconciling my faith in America with the fact the voters chose Obama and Clinton twice.

    3. Yeah, well it's true that there is that nasty side to our institutional nature as well.

  5. It'll be curious to see the results of the Dems "Hate America!" campaign. Something tells me they've misjudged the mood of the nation, if not Austin and San Fran.

    1. The progs test the mood in San Francisco and the Baltimore inner city and think that it applies across the nation. When "hate America" is all you have to run on... ok, not just that. They also want higher taxes, free cheese for everyone and more illegal aliens to take American jobs.

  6. Gallup published a report recently: Fifteen countries attract about 500 million of the 700 million potential migrants worldwide. The United States is the top desired destination. Nearly one-quarter (24%) of these respondents — a proportion that translates to more than 166 million adults worldwide — name the United States as their desired future residence.

    I guess the Democrats see the potential for new members. But some people should also be concerned about the burden for the american taxpayer.

    1. Democrats do NOT worry about any potential burden on the taxpayer.

  7. Tired of winning? Hmmm. My hope is that we ain't seen nothin' yet. There is still much winning needed.

    "The California Supreme Court rejected the “impossibility” claim, ruling Thursday that just because something’s impossible doesn’t make it null and void."

    From here--

    Which is just one more reason why many like LL and myself have escaped from Kalifornia.
