Socialist in Name Only

America's most prominent socialist media mogul is more robber baron than Robin Hood, according to former staffers.

Big Labor Drops Big Dollars on Dems

Big Labor is dropping big money on the 2018 elections despite their own rhetoric about outside spending. Unions represent 12 of the top 25 largest outside spending organizations in the 2018 midterm elections. Two of the three highest institutional outside spenders are labor groups, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. The Carpenters and Joiners Union tops the list having spent $23.8 million on the midterm elections.

American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees ruling overturning coercive unionism. The post Survey: 1-in-3 Gov Workers Could Leave Union appeared first on Washington Free Beacon. ...
