Allowing Unions to Organize Volkswagen is Like ‘Injecting Cancer’ Into US Auto Industry

-By Warner Todd Huston

It seems like a foolish move by Volkswagen for allowing the United Auto Workers (UAW) to organize its American plants. Not only did the UAW screw Volkswagen in the past, but even now the union admits that it is raising union dues solely to replenish its strike fund so unionistas can walk out. It’s like Volkswagen is buying its own rope for its execution.

Or, as Steve Moore of The Wall Street Journal says, “it’s like inserting a cancer cell into a body.”

That is how Journal editorial board member Moore characterized the act of allowing the UAW to organize Volkswagen’s American auto plants. “That one cancer cell is going to multiply and kill the body. It’s a disruptive influence,” he continued.

Worse, the UAW wants to raise dues for members for the expressed reason of filling strike fund coffers, this according to UAW Boss Bob King.

So, if Volkswagen gives in to the UAW’s demands it will only be helping the union to walk out at the earliest opportunity.

Zero Tolerance Stupidity: Little Boy Suspended for Using Fingers Like Bow and Arrow

December 7, 2013 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Children, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Education, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Liberals, Pennsylvania, Progressives, Security/Safety, Warner Todd Huston, Zero Tolerance | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The stupidity of our so-called schools seems never ending. Now we have a ten-year-old boy being suspended because he used his fingers and made motions like they were a bow and arrow. So, now the boy is branded as a weapons-using criminal over an imaginary bow and arrow.

This is just more of the stupidity that is the fetid “zero tolerance” policy, a rule that gives school administrators the opportunity to act like good little automatons and not be required to use their brains like adults should.

This case happened on October 14 in Fawn Grove, Pennsylvania. A ten-year-old named Johnny Jones was suspended from school for shooting an imaginary bow and arrow at another kid. Apparently the school’s idiotic “no weapons” policy was evoked to get the kid thrown out of school.

While Obama likes to pretend he is somehow “just like” President Abraham Lincoln, on this 150th anniversary of the delivery of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address the President was no where to be found as the Address was celebrated in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Why not? He was “busy” with that “whole website thing,” the White House said.

Journalist Ron Fournier was curious why Obama was a no show in Gettysburg for the anniversary celebration and took to Twitter to ask the White House why he didn’t show up.

“Curious,” Fournier Tweeted White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer on Nov. 19, “why not honor Gettysburg with a presidential visit?”


An actor portrays Abe Lincoln in Gettysburg.

Presidential spokesman Pfeiffer replied that the visit didn’t fit into the President’s schedule and that prompted Fournier to ask what was more important than the “Gettysburg anniversary.”

Anti-Gun Penn. Mayor Ousted From Office by Pro-Gun Voters

-By Warner Todd Huston

Let this be a warning to all arrogant politicians who think they don’t have to listen to their constituents. An anti-gun mayor in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania was fired by pro-gun voters this month after he enraged hundreds of voters by joining New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s discredited anti-gun group, Mayors Against Gun Violence.

In the Nov. 5 election, voters in Chambersburg ousted incumbent mayor Democrat Pete Lagiovane in a region steeped in gun culture and hunting traditions.

Mayor-elect Darren Brown, a tea party Republican, was gratified but noted that he was a little worried about how close the election ended up being. “The results are a little closer than I thought they’d be,” Brown said after winning with 52 percent of the vote.

The NRA used its powerful voice in support of Brown, “The only pro-gun candidate in this race,” as the legislative arm of the NRA said in advertisements.

After 93 Years Church Throws Out Boy Scouts for Now Favoring Gays

-By Warner Todd Huston

After being associated with the Boy Scouts of America for 93 years, a church in Pennsylvania has ended its relationship because the venerable kids organization bent to left-wing pressure and is now allowing gays into the group.

The Aldan Union Church in Aldan, Pa. has told the Boy Scouts to take a hike because they’d rather not support gays.

“As a church, we have a responsibility to our convictions,” Rev. Paul Thompson told KYW radio.

This is exactly the point, too. The Bible is very clear that homosexuality is a sin. If the Scouts are now sponsoring members who are openly homosexual, that would absolutely violate Biblical principles. The church really had no choice.

School Cancels ‘Religious’ Halloween, Says Constitution Forbids It

October 11, 2013 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Democrats/Leftists, Education, Ethics, Government, Pennsylvania, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

I hate to even use the word “school” for this sort of brainless stupidity, but here we go again having a school attempting to destroy our American traditions and character this time by banning Halloween. Why? Because it is a “religious” holiday and the Constitution forbids religion in schools, of course.

Now you and I both know that the American holiday of Halloween has absolutely no religious connotations whatsoever. But this fool of a school principal has decreed that Halloween is all shot through with that monstrous “religious” stuff and so, because all our founders were 100% against religion–despite that this country was formed on freedom of religion–why we need to dump Halloween, too.

Now, it is true that Halloween has religious roots. It stems from the Christian celebration of All Hallows Eve, a holiday many think was derived from pagan practices. But that original origin does not have its roots in America’s celebration of the holiday.

In fact, Halloween was not much celebrated in the USA before the 20th century, though some immigrants did celebrate it here and there beforehand. It just wasn’t a nationalized holiday until it became a merchandising holiday pushed by Hollywood and the business sector in the 20th century. Halloween in the USA was never much associated with the ancient Christian and/or pagan celebrations. The way we do it is quite specifically American.

Tyranny: City Telling Residents They Can’t Park in Their Own Driveways

-By Warner Todd Huston

In yet another example of how our governments, whether city, county, state or federal, have become tyrants instead of servants, residents in Pittsburgh have discovered that they are being fined–some up to thousands of dollars–for “illegally” parking their cars in their own driveways.

You read that correctly. The city passed an ordinance that essentially makes it illegal for homeowners to park their own cars in their own driveways on their own, privately held property. And now city officials are randomly cruising through the city and handing out fines to homeowners for violating that “law.”

The city ordinance, being enforced by the Bureau of Building Inspection, states that no one can park a car within 30 feet of a building. This, of course, would make nearly every driveway in the city an illegal parking space.

Temar Boggs and his friend Chris Garcia deserve to be recognized for saving a five-year-old girl from a kidnapper in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Boggs and Garcia mounted their bicycles and began to look for a little girl that had turned up missing in their Lancaster neighborhood.

After riding around for an hour or so, the two boys saw a suspicious car and began to follow it. Boggs caught up with the car and saw a little girl in the car with an unknown man. The driver then got scared and pushed the girl out of the car.

The little girl turned out to be the missing 5-year-old Jocelyn Rojas.

Police are still looking for the suspect described as:

Gosnell Defense Attny Blamed ‘Baby Factor’ In Part For Guilty Verdict

May 16, 2013 | Filed Under Abortion, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Liberals, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Attorney Jack McMahon had an interesting excuse for why he lost the case to a guilty verdict for his client, abortion mill operator Kermit Gosnell. It was because of the “baby factor” he said to reporters right after the court adjourned. McMahon called this “a big problem.”

Just what the lawyer meant by “the baby factor” is open to question, but in context it seems that he was saying that the jurors were influenced by the common human emotion of love for babies and that emotional response led the jurors to convict his client.

Oddly, McMahon also blamed the media saying, “The media has been overwhelmingly against him [Gosnell].” This is odd since the media barely mentioned the trial during its entire run. Further, jurors reported that they had not seen much of the media’s coverage anyway.

McMahon did applaud the jury for taking its job seriously, though.

New York Times Defends Non-Coverage of Gosnell Trial, Says Trial is Meaningless

April 23, 2013 | Filed Under Abortion, Children, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Liberals, Pennsylvania, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

For The New York Times, editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal penned an apologia for the Old Media establishment’s disinterest in covering the abortion trial of Kermit Gosnell and essentially claimed that the trial is a meaningless incident when all things are considered, especially when it comes to the overall abortion debate.

“What does the trial of a Philadelphia doctor who is accused of performing illegal late-term abortions by inducing labor and then killing viable fetuses have to do with the debate over legal abortion,” Rosenthal writes.

Rosenthal excuses his paper’s lack of coverage of the Gosnell trial saying that the NYT has written “six articles” already so this, he believes, means they’ve adequately covered the story. He also maintains that there is “no rule” that a newspaper “has to run one piece about a bad clinic for every piece celebrating a good one.”

But a mere six articles seems rather lacking. As LifeNews.com’s Rob Schwarzwalder pointedly recalls, “I wonder why the Times, as it did with the trial of Tiller murderer George Roeder, did not cover such things as jury selection or pronounce endlessly on the assorted issues involved in the Gosnell case.”

Speaking of Tiller, Rosenthal also invokes the murdered abortionist and finds space to mourn his death and celebrates the reopening of his clinic.

AP: Gosnell’s Gruesome Assistants ‘Only Following Orders’

-By Warner Todd Huston

In shades of the Nuremberg Trials, an April 12 article from the Associated Press seems to excuse away the actions of the assistants of accused criminal abortionist Kermit Gosnell as “only following orders.”

For the AP, Maryclaire Dale begins her piece with that very sentiment saying, “They say they were just doing what the boss trained them to do.”

Incredibly, throughout the article, Dale seems to absolve these assistants for the horrible things they did, softening the guilt of nearly every person accused of crimes with excuses.

In some cases, Dale claims that these accused assistants had a hard time finding jobs before Gosnell gave them a shot at killing babies born alive. According to Dale, one had to work for Gosnell because she had “post-traumatic stress syndrome.” Dale excuses others because they were somehow related tangentially to fiendish Doctor Gosnell.

CNN Celebrates Springsteen Rally For Obama, Ignores Larger Romney Rally

CNN’s 1600 Report blog is currently featuring a photo of aging rocker Bruce Springsteen at a rally for Obama in Wisconsin today. The headline reads, “Springsteen energizes Obama’s final sprint.”

One might think it would be interesting, though, to compare and contrast the size of the crowd at Obama’s Springsteen rally with Romney’s rally from the same day. But, CNN avoids that comparison, perhaps for good reason.

The Springsteen rally was held in Wisconsin, of all states. Wisconsin is supposed to be a solid Obama win, yet here was the President and his personal rock star in the last hours of the campaign desperately touring the very state he is supposed to have a lock on. Worse for Obama, only about 18,000 turned up at the rally.

On the other hand, Mitt Romney was in Pennsylvania, a state he is supposed to have no chance to win. Even more amazing, Romney pulled in over 30,000 people to his rally.

Yeah, I suppose one can understand why CNN didn’t want to make that comparison.

Our Socialist School Teachers

July 26, 2012 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Children, Democrats/Leftists, Education, Ethics, Government, History, Liberals, Pennsylvania, Public Employees Unions, Socialism, Teachers Unions, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

I am beginning to feel that there is no hope for many of our school teachers. They’ve become so infused with leftism that any semblance of Americanism is beyond their grasp. Even history is viewed from within a socialist prism as a recent editorial from a teacher from Pennsylvania proves.

In his editorial, teacher Robert J. Fisher of Upper Saucon Township sought to debunk what he called the “extreme right-wing elements” of today’s America. He did this by claiming that nearly every conflict in our history is some sort of example of Marxist class warfare.

For teacher Fisher, all of American history is one giant example of Marxist principles proven right. It doesn’t matter that the ideas of class as Marx described them really didn’t exist during all of American history, of course.

Fisher claims that “primitive Native Americans” and “subsistent frontiersmen from the Piedmont” were all engaged in class warfare with the “wealthier urban merchants and plantation owners.”

He goes on to claim that the Regulators in 1771 North Carolina, Shay’s rebellion (1787), and the earlier Bacon’s rebellion (1675) were all “class warfare.”

Then he says that the “powerful federal government” that Washington and his compatriots created was an attempt to “deal more effectively with such class-based rebellions.” His proof? The 1791 Whiskey Rebellion.

Fisher bounced to the Jacksonian era, saying that the President Andrew Jackson’s goal was “reform” America to allow “the common man” to become vested in the system then touted the Civil War as the biggest “class struggle” of them all.

And who else was a hero? Of course it was the rise of the labor union coupled with Franklin Roosevelt’s “New Deal” policies. These, he claims “helped create a vibrant middle class.”

All of this is skewed nonsense. The history of the United States cannot be so simplistically distilled as one of mere class warfare and it’s sad that this person who has been allowed to influence the minds of our children is so blinded by his Marxist theology that this is all he can see.

In fact, in nearly every case Fisher cites the Americans involved were not trying to tear down another class in order to “equalize” society. They did not consider themselves class warriors but people that aimed to advance to a better life themselves.

What Guns Were Made For: Homeowner in Philly Attacked By Mob

A homeowner in Philly was attacked by a mob of racist black “youths” that broke into his home apparently looking to kill white people. This is exactly the situation that the Second Amendment was made for.

The Philly Inquirer reports that “dozens of youths” marauded into a sleepy Philly neighborhood to find white teens to beat up or kill reportedly because an African-American was attacked on a playground nearby.

Don’t you love how the newspaper reports the makeup of the crowd? It’s just “dozens of youths” instead of what it really was, an army of black criminals intent on mayhem and murder. Police even said that it wasn’t just “youths,” either, but people into the thirties at least.

Mark LaVelle was standing outside near his home when two 13 or 14-year-old white boys ran up to him fearful that the mob would come after them. Once the crowd saw LaVelle with the two boys, they did, indeed, turn their attention to the three.

State Of Inebriation: PA Tries to Hold its Liquor

September 1, 2011 | Filed Under Business, Daniel Clark, Democrats/Leftists, Economy/Finances, Government, Liberals, Pennsylvania, Taxes | Comments Off

-By Daniel Clark

Eccentric Russian politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky once tried to win his country’s presidency by promising cheap vodka, “at every corner, around the clock.” Despite the populist appeal of that platform, he was not elected. Perhaps he should have been running for office in Pennsylvania, instead.

Here in the Keystone State, the sale of liquor has been the function of “state stores,” controlled by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, ever since the end of prohibition. It’s an arrangement Zhirinovsky might have designed himself, resembling as it does the punch line to a Yakov Smirnoff joke: “In Russia, government drive you to get drunk; in Pennsylvania, you drive to government to get drunk.” Over the past several decades, governors from both parties have repeatedly tried to get the state out of the booze business, but have been consistently thwarted.

The latest effort is being led in the state legislature by Allegheny County Republican Mike Turzai. The PLCB and the United Food and Commercial Workers oppose his plan, contending that privatizing the liquor business would result in alcoholic beverages becoming more expensive and less accessible to consumers.

I guess that getting the correct information when arranging a smear campaign and protest is not necessary when you are the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). Who needs to be in the right when you are an important, powerful, politically connected union, eh? The seriousness of the charge and the effort to “raise awareness” is far more important than targeting the right people to smear, right?

It seems that the SEIU decided to picket against Marcellus Shale drilling, sometimes called hydrofracking, and the severance tax associated with it. So the government employee union picked a site in Hastings, Pennsylvania to highlight this subject and to shame the company that owns the property into siding with them.

Only one tiny, little problem. There is no Marcellus Shale drilling going on at the site they descended upon with their protests. And there never has been. It turns out the SEIU got the wrong place.

Yes, it’s that new age of Democrat political civility rearing its ugly head yet again. During an April 12 debate on gun control Pennsylvania State Representative Margo Davidson of Philadelphia wondered aloud on the House floor if it might be OK for her to blow the brains out of one of Pennsylvania’s Republican Representatives.

Before we even go on with this story, imagine if a white, male, and Republican politician had asked during a debate on policy if it would be OK if he blew the brains out of a black, female, Democrat. Just imagine what would be happening to such a man should he have done this. Certainly his name would be on the lips of every TV newscaster for at least a week after he said such an outrageous thing. Movements would be born to oust him from his elected position. Colleagues would be condemning him. Race-baiters would be flocking to the state for vigils. Further his own party would be denouncing him in no uncertain terms.

But what we have here is a black female, a Democrat from a big city, and no one is paying any attention at all. Obviously it is not a big deal. Apparently we are expected to just move on as if there is nothing wrong with a black woman expressing the desire to kill her political opponent.

Double standard is the nicest thing I can say about it.

So, now I am waiting for the leftists that immediately began to blame the shooting on Gabrielle Giffords on “violent right-wing rhetoric” to point to the violent left-wing rhetoric that would cause a teenager to buy guns (and send the receipt to Palin), send threatening emails, make threatening phone calls, call himself Palin’s “magic enemy,” and ultimately set out to threaten her at her home, until caught by the FBI.

Truth in Accounting Issues: Pennsylvania’s ‘Financial State of the State’ – True Tax Burden $52 Billion

From the Institute for Truth in Accounting…

Chicago (November 29, 2010) Today, the Institute for Truth in Accounting released Pennsylvania’s “Financial State of the State.” After an intensive review of the State’s 2010 audited financial report the Institute determined the State is in a precarious financial position because it does not have the funds available to pay more than $52 billion of the State’s commitments as they come due. Each taxpayer’s share of this financial burden equals $12,200.

Pennsylvania state law requires a balanced budget. “If governors and legislatures had truly balanced the state’s budget, no taxpayer’s financial burden would exist,” said Sheila Weinberg, founder and CEO of the Institute for Truth in Accounting (IFTA). She continued, “A state budget is not balanced if past costs, including those for employees’ retirement benefits, are pushed into the future.”

County Chief Commissioner Vinny Clausi is unrepentant about pushing the plan to bust the union.

“If they go on strike, we want to make sure we have service,” he said. “The union will not put the government out of business.”

AFSCME union members recently rejected the County’s contract offer of a three-year contract. Naturally, the reason these greedy union thugs wanted to strike is because the county offered a smaller package rather than all the perks and raises the unionistas wanted.

Despite all our talk of CommieObamie being a socialist, it is a straight out fact that the far left in America are mad that Obama didn’t turn us into the U.S.S.R. lite the second he took office. His pace at selling us out and turning us into a social democratic system ala France isn’t happening fast enough for them. For unions the fact that Obama hasn’t summarily castrated the business community and forced card check down everyone’s throats yet is a downer. And with that in mind, unions have announced that they are taking their ire out on those mythical “Blue Dog” Democrats that are trying to run for reelection in conservative districts in the upcoming midterms.

Friend to the blog David Denholm gave us a delicious example of this cutting off of the Democratic nose to spite the union’s face going on in Pensylvania’s 17th Congressional District.

There the AFL-CIO is refusing to support “Blue Dog” Tim Holden. Why? Because he voted “no” on Obama’s take over of American healthcare, that’s why. Ridiculously enough, Pennsylvania’s AFL-CIO front man, Bill George said that Holden has “been good to us on a number of bread-and-butter issues,” but that they have refused to support him because Obamacare was a “revolutionary, historical vote.”

Pennsylvania Congressman John Murtha has passed at age 77. He’d been in the hospital for several days and died from complications from gallbladder surgery.

Murtha was a Vietnam vet serving in the Marine Corps there. He resigned his commission as a Colonel from the Marine corps Reserves in 1990. He’s served in Congress since 1969.

Despite all his military service, Murtha emerged as a Congressional enemy of the armed forces. He was ill-tempered and one of the most outspoken left-wingers in Congress during the Bush years. He was also a loud anti-war voice. Murtha gave succor to our enemies by being one of the most outspoken members of Congress calling for the prosecution of our own soldiers. For this he became the favorite of some of the most virulently un-American groups in the country.

Murtha was also one of the most corrupt Congressmen in Washington with many, many ethics violations. His nick name was “the king of pork” he was such a profligate Washington spender.

Let us hope that Pennsylvania picks a better representative to fill his now empty chair because we need no more like him in D.C.
