Unprecedented Union Corruption
By Dave Bego
After battling the SEIU's corporate campaign against my company, and ultimately winning, I firmly believed that I had experienced corruption at its worst. Sadly, I was mistaken. This same scenario is currently being played out in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where the UAW is attempting to force unionize Volkswagen employees through use of a neutrality agreement and card check. In this case, the union claims they have enough votes to win an election, but instead of holding a secret ballot election, which they say takes time and effort, the facility should utilize card check! Based on personal experience and as chronicled in The Devil at Our Doorstep, the truth that was discovered upon talking to my employees throughout these scenarios was that they were intimidated and lied to about the cards they were signing. This is most likely what is occurring at the Volkswagen plant - the UAW is merely attempting to achieve card check through the back door, and the economic impact of these events could be devastating.

Is There a Con Man in the Oval Office?
I keep asking myself: Why Syria? Why now? No war in America history has ever been opposed by 71% of the citizens, or 75% of the military. That's how absurd and unnecessary this potential war is. Then, when you realize Obama has had so many scandals and failures to hide, war is the perfect cover story to mask the most disastrous record in modern presidential history. Obama is a desperate man. He has to cover up the truth. We have a CON MAN in the White House. The sad thing is... it's working. [more to hide...]
President Obama's New Pen Pal
By Joseph Klein
After vacillating for weeks on what to do regarding his red line for the use of chemical weapons in Syria and ultimately retreating, President Obama laid down yet another of his meaningless red lines for Iran. "My suspicion is that the Iranians recognize they shouldn't draw a lesson that we haven't struck [Syria] to think we won't strike Iran," Obama warned in an interview with ABC that aired last Sunday. "I think what the Iranians understand is that the nuclear issue is a far larger issue for us than the chemical weapons issue." There is little doubt that the Iranians have learned precisely the opposite from Obama's back-and-forth flirtation with military action over the last several weeks. Since Secretary of State John Kerry had signaled that any attack against Syria would be "unbelievably small," it is not difficult to imagine Iran's leadership concluding that an attack against Iran, if any, would be small as well.

District Insists Kids Like Eating Pumpkin Parfaits, Roasted Brussel Sprouts
By Kyle Olson
Students like eating brussel sprouts. No, really they do – at least according to Donegal, Pennsylvania school officials. They insist kids like the new school lunch menu changes inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama, which reportedly include pumpkin parfaits and fresh roasted brussel sprouts. But April Hershey, superintendent in the nearby Warwick district, admitted all is not well: “We struggle with continued mandates that limit what we know to be best practices for our students."
