Trump Leading by 27% in Union Stronghold as Teamsters Want Meeting and Unions Abandon Hillary

Reports say that the influential Teamsters union may snub Hillary Clinton in favor of endorsing a Republican candidate such as Donald Trump for the White House in 2016.

Such a move would likely be a notable boost for Republicans with Independents and “Reagan Democrats,” a critical segment of swing-voters that candidates spend millions trying to woo. These “middle of the road” type voters are crucial to winning bellwether regions like Michigan’s Macomb County.

Clinton also faces snubs from other powerful unions like the AFL-CIO and AFSCME, refusing to back Hillary as they try to push Vice President Joe Biden into the race.

According to The Gateway Pundit:

“Teamsters officials met behind closed doors today. The union refused to endorse Hillary Clinton for president. The officials told FOX News they want to meet with Donald Trump.

James Rosen reported:

FOX News has learned exclusively the 26 member board decided unanimously to withhold a presidential endorsement… Union executives told me they want to sit down with Republican candidates, most noatably, front-runner Donald Trump who has collaborated with unionized work forces across his real estate career.”

Former Michigan Congressman Pete Hoekstra says Trump won’t likely be the only GOP Presidential hopeful  they sit down with.

“I would be surprised if they only met with Trump,” Hoekstra said in an interview with CIB. “They should meet with others. I think John Kasich might be worth a look from them, Rand Paul has shown a willigness to work with people, Marco Rubio perhaps also-there’s four right there.”

Hoekstra says the group may not want to meet with Jeb Bush.

“Hoffa tried to reach out and was constantly rebuffed by the Bush administration,” Hoekstra said. “So they probably wouldn’t want to meet with Jeb.”

Hoekstra is well acquainted with the Teamsters, which he says is immensely professional and more independent than other unions.

“I was part of the investigation in the late 90’s resulting in removal of corrupt leadership from the Teamsters, but I have a good relationship with Jim Hoffa,” Hoekstra said. “They have a nasty reputation with some people, but were always professional when I worked with them. They had the ability to move from issue to issue and it was impressive. It was never personal. And the way they are run is the way some people wish the GOP would be, from the bottom up, driven by their members.”

Hoekstra says problems between Clinton and the group go way back, with the strained relationship now hurting Clinton’s endorsement prospects.

“They aren’t that interested in meeting with Hillary,” Hoekstra said. “Bill and Hillary were big supporters of Ron Kerry, who took the Teamsters down the road of corruption and used the group as a piggy bank for the Clinton’s. That’s why Hoffa went with Obama over Hillary in 2008.”

Reagan Dems and Independents are immensely important, and Hoekstra says it would be a benefit to a Republican candidate if the Teamsters were to endorse.

“Unions endorsed Ronald Reagan,” Hoekstra said. “It really helps to have a broad cross-section of voters as part of your coalition, and that includes the Teamsters and other unions. They are full of Independents and Reagan Democrats that we can’t write off if we want to win.”

Macomb County, Michigan, has a population of approx. 850,000 people and is a prominent swing region. Macomb is known for a strong independent streak and is the home of many Reagan Dems.

According to pollster Steve Mitchell, all the GOP candidates being polled against Hillary in that critical Macomb region are beating her soundly.

“In Macomb, all three GOP candidates lead by a good margins; Trump by 27%, Rubio by 10% and Bush by 9%,” Mitchell said in a press release.

The Teamsters backing Trump or another GOP hopeful isn’t Clinton’s only union problem. Marquee union groups like AFSCME and the AFL-CIO are leaving Hillary high and dry, withholding support as they wait to see if Vice President Joe Biden enters the race.

According to Politico:

“Two major unions have decided to delay endorsements in the presidential race — a move labor insiders attribute in part to the uncertainty Vice President Joe Biden’s potential run has inserted into the Democratic primary.

The decisions are a setback for Hillary Clinton, who has been courting the labor giants in the hopes of an early lock down of two powerhouse unions that can organize millions of members and resources on the ground. And they come against the backdrop of a Clinton campaign show of force — in terms of establishment donors, delegates and endorsements — as Biden weighs his options. Adding the support of two of the most muscular unions now would have sent a powerful message there is little room in the race for the vice president.

The executive committee of the 2-million strong Service Employees International Union gathered on Sept. 16 and 17 for meetings where many had been expecting agreement on endorsing Clinton, according to union insiders, although a vote was not on the schedule. The board of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees — the country’s largest public employee union, which endorsed Clinton in 2007 and has been expected to do so this year — also held meetings in Washington, D.C., on Monday and Tuesday this week that presented an occasion for AFSCME to endorse.

Both unions, however, chose to put off any decision and remain uncommitted in the 2016 race. “We are determined to take the time necessary to make sure every voice is heard,” an AFSCME official told POLITICO.”

  1. The only thing a progressive like Barry O or SHillary know about JOBS….is that they’ve never really had one.

  2. Because Trump ACTUALLY supports the American worker!!

    The jig is up for all these illegal immigrant loving libs! These workers are starting to realize they will LOSE jobs if the current trend continues.

    TRUMP 2016!!

    • Hoffa supported Obama in ’08. Wonder what that guy is thinking about Obama now. Probably the same, because Union bosses could truly care less about the common union member.

        • Only if Biden doesn’t run. After reading this and a couple of other articles, I’m really wondering if the unions are starting to wake up and realize that the Democrats truly don’t give one s**t about the common, regular, blue collar workers, whether they’re unionized or not. I’m certainly not saying that most of the Republicans care either, but the Democrats have proven over and over, over the years that while they talk a great game, once they get their vote, they’re through with them until elections roll around again. Now all we need is the black community to start realizing this, as well. Obama was supposed to be their savior, and not only did things not change for them, they got WORSE! I don’t know why the black community isn’t outraged with him and Democrats not only about how high the unemployment rate is for blacks, but where is all the damn money gone too??? Why are these major cities, (and small ones, as well) broke??? They certainly aren’t spending it on infrastructure or all the workers that need to be hired to do the work. They aren’t creating ANY jobs. Why aren’t they out there everyday protesting, wanting to know “WHERE ARE THE JOBS??? WHERE HAS ALL THE MONEY GONE??? WHY ARE OUR STUDENTS, WHO GET SIGNIFICANTLY MORE MONEY PER CHILD, PER CAPITA, DROPPING OUT, OR FAILING OUT, MORE THAN THE NATIONAL AVERAGE??? WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH ALL THAT MONEY???!!!

          • What is this “care” business? That’s your first problem. Caring doesn’t fix anything. Effective tax and immigration policies with strong leadership and pro-Americana – that’s what u need. Bravado. Caring is for little girlz.

          • “Care?” Politicians care about the hoi polloi only so far as being able to coddle them into voting them into office. Obama/Democrat economic and regulatory policies hurt the economy. They drive the manufacturers that hire union members out of the country. For reasons of self interest if nothing else, the unions would like to see that change. Fewer employed workers, less dues. Also, the unions – who supported Obamacare – got shafted by it.

          • Caring has very little to do with anything. Democrats always say that Republicans “don’t care” about this or that, but the reality is that we do. We just think people should have the right and responsibility to take care some things on their own… like health care, birth control, and frankly the right to either belong to a union or not. A person doesn’t really NEED the government telling them how live their life. What we need is less government intrusion and more common sense practiced.

          • Obama admitted there were no shovel ready jobs and laughed. The stimulus was sucked up by the crony fiends who elected him.

      • With bus loads of illegal aliens willing to work for a fraction of minimum wage, how are unions even relevant? Obama/Biden/Clinton have done everything in their power to destroy the wages of the U.S. worker. Could it be that for once perverse ideology has not overwritten survival instinct?

          • Yes, and AFL-CIO honcho Trumpka is pals with Chamber of Commerce Pres., and he’s worked with the CoC to get this Gang of 8’s “comprehensive immigration bill” with it’s amnesty provisions passed,which as you note, would further decimate the economic situation for US workers, and make unions even more irrelevant, since businesses would hire these former illegals rather than unionized workers. Trumpka was played for the fool he is–I guess he enjoyed those expensive meals at that swanky Hays-Adams Hotel near the White House.

        • DemocRat voters are the dumbest people on earth. Dumb, gullible, losers. They’ve been played by the Party Slave Plantation for decades and show no signs of waking up to reality.

      • The guys who run the unions are often scum, they consider themselves to be above the Union Workers and some even look down on them, even though that is where they got started.

      • Wow! Very cool. I am a small businessman and definitely want to vote for Trump.

        It would be wonderful if a lot of Teamsters got on the bandwagon. Trump will do more for jobs and growth in this country than the DemoCraps would ever do.

        • Yes, indeed. Getting cross-over votes would be a huge victory and put the much needed nails in the Obama coffin regarding his historical legacy.
          We need to send a message about this president to the future and other wanna be socialists, today!
          The message is rejection. We heard you. We tried you and you failed!

          • I don’t understand how she has so much support being such a crook! I understand that you like the democratic ideology, but are we willing to sacrifice our liberties and our country for it?

          • Nora, In order to maintain any faith in humanity, I have to believe that Hillary supporters mostly fall into two categories. One, young voters who don’t remember the scandals plaguing her since she took her first step as first lady and the second group, consisting of low information voters who vote democratic regardless of whom that democrat may be. I think the upcoming few months will be very interesting as far as how Loretta Lynch follows up the blatant disregard for US law flouted by Mrs. Clinton. There is still a chance to fix America. We, the people, the ‘Washington Cartels’ supposed bosses cannot allow those in power to silently and persistently strip our rights and sell us out to big business with deep pockets. We must all be involved in taking the power back. The social issues will fall into place.

          • I truly hope that you are right. Sometimes I feel despair with everything that is going on. Yesterday I was reading about “operation hummingbird” from Rove and the RNC and it is scaring. Hopefully this time, we the people are not going to be so gullible and fight for what we believe is our right.

          • Spread the story about Operation Hummingbird to everyone, we can’t let Rove and the COC control the GOP anymore, and to control the voice of the people. They need to be taken down.

          • Duh.. hate to say it, but this is a stupid question. I was merely trying to make the point that Trump is able to get the Blue Dog Democrat vote too, which a lot of union members are. I am not against union members.. neither is Trump.

      • Nice to see the rank and file union guys is thinking about America. I know that many leadership guys WANT mass numbers of immigrants in the hopes they become future union members. They are willing to sell out the rank and file today for their hopes tomorrow.

        • All they need to do is vote their own self-interest. Trump’s the only one with a scintilla of real concern for the regular Joe and how hard it’s become to make a decent living.

      • “I’m a teamster and I’m down with Trump.”

        OUTSTANDING. Nice to see that Trump is getting support from people that actually WORK FOR A LIVING, rather than just go to some air conditioned building and play with a computer on their desk all day, if even that.

        Together we win!!!

    • Real Republican’s are anti-Union. If Trump is endorsed by Unions, he’ll have to run on his Independent ticket. As stated in the article, our last GOP President snubbed these corrupt unions.

      • Actually Sherry, I’m a Republican and I’m not anti-union at all. I would never join one because I believe in my own expertise, but a lot of workers need someone to stand up for them. Too bad the unions (for the most part) don’t really stand up for the common worker anymore.

  3. Trump has worked with politicians and the unions in NYC all his life to get things done. He always comes in under budget and ahead of schedule. Gee, how about that? I wish our govt. would do the same. No wonder the GOP is wetting themselves over Trump. They can lose money, power, and control. Uh-oh!

  4. Proof positive that The Donald can assemble a broad coalition of voters from across the social, racial and political spectrum. He’d make a fine President and he’d truly unite this country and make it a beacon to the World once again.

    • Trump can easily reassemble the Reagan coalition. He can bring together the people who are actually proud to be Americans as opposed to the Elitists of both parties who look down their noses at Americans as if loving your nation is passé, even embarrassing. They are “citizens of the world” , they are actually pretentious scum. That is why the media, the rest of the left and the Republican establishment hate Trump and are trying to knock him out of the race.

      • I’m for Trump. I voted for Reagan, gladly.
        Be careful. Much of the Reagan coalition voters have passed away. 20% of Americans alive today, were born AFTER 9/11.
        We need to build a new coalition and educate those generations that have been raised under the idea that Reagan was evil.

        • I am ashamed to say I did not vote for Trump the first time. I was a young kid, first time voter and I believed the media. Then I watched the first four years and the guy was a great leader compared to the disaster called Carter.

        • Many of those who voted for Reagan were 18 and older in 1980 and then again in 1984, so those who voted for Reagan in 1984 were between 49 years of age and older this Year. There are an enormous number of people between 49 years of age and dead in this country. While a lot of people have died since Reagan was President, I would bet more are alive. Those who were born after Reagan need to be taught about him by those who do remember him.

          • We are not going to hear the truth about Reagan from the leftists who were beaten down by Reagan and who ended the USSR. While Obama golfs, Putin reassembles the USSR.

    • As Trump has noted, if we get people working again, and at good paying jobs, this will increase tax revenues, and help us reduce the deficit.

    • It just might be another Reagan 1984 landslide victory.
      This time with a majority of the Gov’ships , state legislatures, US congress and US Senate.
      It’s time to take our country back for all American citizens.

  5. Mr. Trump understands, as no other candidate, the daily struggle of the American middle class and recognizes them as the backbone of this nation! No one else cares as he does! That’s why the American people are flocking to the Trump campaign and demanding a Trump presidency. The future of America and the people who built it is at stake!

  6. Anyone supporting illegal aliens, amnesty or even increased legal immigration is anti Union .
    Trump 2016

    • Because they see their leadership as willing to sell out the rank and file for the mere hope that mass immigration means new members 10-20 years from now.
      Too many rank and file, today, have bills to pay next week!

  7. It proves Union members have a brain. They know about Hillary’s time as a Walmart Director and how she helped them develop their anti union strategy. They know that her husband signed NAFTA and how that resulted in one million manufacturing jobs being shipped off to Mexico. They know she’s closer to Wall Street and the big banks than any of her GOP opponents. They know that she became a member of the top 1,000th of the 1% without producing a product, or providing a service.

    • Biden has no pull with the Unions. The Unions are endorsing Trump because he promises what Biden will not, to repatriate jobs and money by making the US attractive to business, and by fighting the illegal immigration at the heart of undermining those remaining American jobs. And the Union bosses know, go with this Trump guy and their Union memberships will surge unimaginably.

  8. The real problem is that for the last forty years, the liberal elites in BOTH parties have been offshoring every job they possibly could while admitting countless millions of legal and illegal aliens to drive down wages on the jobs that remain.

    Since everybody running except Trump is part of the problem rather than the solution, there shouldn’t be any question as to whom labor leaders and good Americans choose.

      • I recently read a book titled Transatlantic Radicals, about the first wave of immigrants to come during the Jefferson administration. They were not only all Democrats, but tried to remake the Democrat Party along the radical lines of the French Revolution.

        Indeed, the LEGAL immigrants of the Ellis Island invasion succeeded in making the Democrat Party into the radical group it has since become.

        Have things changed? Eighty percent of today’s legal immigrants voted for Obama, and are loyal Democrats.

        I’d say you’ve fixed nothing since you don’t even understand what the problem is.

        • i’d say anyone who intentionally keeps the rebel flag as their avatar in this day in age is a bigger problem than immigration but, since you’re a dying breed, i’ll just chalk it up as someone’s old racist uncle whom they tolerate but don’t let make any significant decisions.

          if you are bashing legal immigration, just go back to your hole. This country was built by immigrants. Just because they vote for the other guy is no reason to attack them as a problem.

          • Every group of people everywhere, save perhaps some parts of Africa, were immigrants at one time. A certain group of immigrants built this country, and their descendants wish to keep it. We have that right. Name-calling won’t change that, nor will it change my mind, and doesn’t make any new friends for you either. We’ve enough to do to keep Americans working, we don’t need any more immigrants.

          • He/she is talking about illegal immigrants and there is NOTHING wrong with wanting them gone.

          • if you read Trump’s recent white paper on immigration, he wants a moratorium on LEGAL immigration as well, and I agree with Trump. We’ve had enough immigration.

            America for Americans!

          • I certainly agree with the thrust of your comment; thank you. But if you check an old pre-sixties dictionary, immigrant is defined as a foreigner who comes to a new country with the purpose of assimilating into that pre-existing society.

            The first Americans didn’t come here to assimilate into Indians societies; they came as colonists. So, if this is a nation of immigrants, it begs the question as to who started American society.

          • The first ones who came to America were not immigrants. They were settlers in a land with no centralized government or prevailing culture.

          • Clewcringle, if you are interested in learning more about how American culture started, there is a book I can’t recommend too highly; it is a delightful read: David Hackett Fischer’s Albion’s Seed.

          • You bet I’m bashing immigration, as well as you liberals.

            This country is a republic, meaning that it belongs to the American people–not to the immigrants, and certainly not to you liberals who hate it. As such, we have the same right to keep undesirables out of our country as we do our own homes–and for good reasons, bad reasons, or no reasons at all.

            If you don’t like my flag or Americans, you can relocate to hell, France, or wherever it is you liberals love with an immigrant under each arm, comrade.

          • it must really conflict with your world view that i have not and will not ever vote for a Democrat. I’m a Republican and a conservative. you are so filled with rage that you can’t even see it, projecting your sins onto others. Every time liberals come at conservatives about bashing immigrants I have to respond with, “we object to illegal immigration. We are pro legal immigration.” and then people like you show up. but again, with your avatar you’re a dead giveaway as a bastion of hate and ignorance.

          • A conservative is by definition one who wishes to conserve a particular people and their culture, in a particular time and place. Since you obviously hate Americans and American symbols, such as my flag, it begs the question of what you wish to conserve.

            Being a Republican means nothing. Both Bush and Carson have identical immigration policies with Obama, and both are good Republicans. Being a Republican no more makes you an American than living in a garage makes you a car.

            On the other hand, my old-school Southern grandparents were diehard Democrats who were fine Americans, and staunch conservatives.

          • so following your logic: hypothetically a group of Muslims of Syrian heritage living outside of Chicago, hell bent on keeping Sharia Law, refusing to assimilate, and insisting on having their particular people and culture in a particular time and place allowed to exist unfettered by outside values would be a group of Conservatives in your mind? Or a group of ultra-left wing hippies in Vermont who think Bernie Sanders is right of David Duke and want their values maintained are Conservatives?

            or is all that you just spewed code work for White Pride? you can save the speechifying. your avatar says it all.

          • Yes, Muslims are conservatives. What you liberal universalists can’t understand is that conservatism is particularist, meaning that it is about conserving cultures.

            Muslims should be Muslims in their own countries and Americans should be Americans in America. THIS is why I oppose open borders.

          • One more comment, comrade.

            The way Americans wrote the Constitution, cultural matters were left up to the states. So, yes, the hippies in Vermont and California should be able to have sodomite marriage, be ashamed to be white, and have legal marijuana if they want. We Americans, on the other hand, have a similar Constitutional right to forbid these things, including being proud of our white heritage.

          • Clewcringle, thanks. The famous words of Benjamin Franklin come to mind: Gentlemen, we shall all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.

            It’s time for us Americans to hang together.

          • Hurry to K-Mart. I hear they are having a sale on bed sheets!

            I believe in state rights, too. Yet, you seem to be all about saving white people that freely choose to not have children at a replacement rate. We can be American, have old-time values and be another color.

            I oppose importing million of poor people. I don’t care about their color. I care that they are poor and on welfare. Lots of white people on welfare, food stamps and support Obama Care in the South, too!

          • Ah, the morbid liberal fascination with the Klan. I recently did some research on the Klan. Between 1866 and the present day, at most the Klan killed 1,937 people. Nonwhite street gangs kill that many every year.

            Could you tell me why you liberals are morbidly obsessed with the Klan while barely giving a thought to nonwhite gangs?

            I fully agree that nonwhites can be Americans, and plenty of whites are not. Being an American long ago ceased to be a racial expression that way things still are in Israel and Japan. But if American ever ceases to be an ethnic expression, all is lost.

          • Nah, you should take a look at Switzerland for a good mix of conservatism and social progressivism in a Republic.

          • You can NEVER, EVER keep a culture as it always changes over time. The best you can hope for is that it happens slowly and is better than the one it replaces.
            I’m white, male and very conservative, but you sound just nuts!

          • I agree that it is impossible to stop change. The difference between the right and left is that the right wants to keep things as they are as much as possible while the left wants to change things as much as possible.

            So, the reason conservative ideas work is because they have withstood the test of time. Leftist ideas usually are disastrous because they are concocted completely in the minds of intellectuals of dubious mental stability–and the less said about them morally, the better.

            I would further add that the most important components of culture do not change; I’m referring to the moral aspects. For example, the teachings of Christ, Plato, and the Buddha are no more, or less, valid than the day they were created.

            If I’m nuts, you have yet to show how or why.

          • Enough about the avatar, weirdo! That flag is a symbol of white pride. Every other race is allowed and encouraged to show PRIDE, except the white race??? The age of politically correct insanity is OVER!!! Get used to it!

          • We need immigration, just not in huge numbers that hurt exist population. And certainly not poor immigrants.
            We need to return to the days when allowed immigration from people that benefited America instead of hurting it.
            Your flag and language hurt the cause. You might even be a fake liberal trying to sound like a racist conservative

          • I would argue that we don’t need immigrants–that the immigrants need us.

            Every country in the Western hemisphere has permitted immigration. But no country has been an immigrant magnet the way the US and Canada have. Why? Because they want what we have while what they have to offer is generally second-rate at best.

            We should be proud of the country we have created. We don’t need outside help from anybody.

            But I do partially concede your point: If we are to have legal immigration, less is better.

        • I think you’ve greatly exaggerated the percentage of legal immigrants that vote Democrat. All of the white legal immigrants that I know vote Republican or Republican leaning Independents, and the legal Hispanic immigrants lean the same way, as well. Not all of them, of course, but they worked their asses off to get here legally and become citizens, and they resent the hell out those that come here illegally, that they may get a chance of becoming citizens without having to do ANY of the hard work that legal citizens had to go through. They didn’t break any laws to get what they have today, they followed the laws of this land and feel that everyone else should have to, too.

          • Actually, I got the figure that eighty percent of legal immigrants vote Democrat from Ann Coulter, who just published a book on the subject. The following is from her latest column:

            Half a century ago, Democrats looked at the country and realized they were never going to convince Americans to agree with them. But they noticed that people in most other countries of the world already agreed with them. The solution was obvious.

            “So in 1965—50 years ago this week—Sen. Ted Kennedy passed an immigration law that has brought 59 million foreigners to our shores, who happen to vote 8-2 for the Democrats.”

            Regarding white immigrants, I even doubt a majority of them vote Republican. But according to the same Coulter column, 88% of post-1965 immigrants are nonwhite. To wit:

            “As Pew Research cheerfully reports, previous immigrants were “almost entirely” European. But since Kennedy’s immigration act, a majority of immigrants have been from Latin America. One-quarter are from Asia. Only 12 percent of post-1965-act immigrants have been from Europe—and they’re probably Muslims.”

            The question is why you refuse to believe it. Look around you. How many immigrants in your area are white? How many are nonwhite?

            Neither does it matter how hard immigrants work to come here, America belongs to Americans, and every poll taken on the matter consistently shows that at least eighty percent of Americans want an immigration moratorium, or greatly reduced numbers of immigrants.

            By the same token, if I professed my admiration for you, and worked really hard to live in your home, would you allow such a thing? We both know the answer to that question. But similarly, America belongs to Americans as much as your home belongs to you. And it doesn’t matter how much foreigners want to live here, they have no more right to do so than I have to move into your home.

        • One thing is that when FDR was POTUS, he enforced the immigration laws, and of course, this kept the supply of labor in check, so this benefited American workers, and unions, too. With basically open borders and all these work-related visa avenues, American workers have been brutalized by corporations who hire foreigners over American workers.

          • You are correct. What the liberal media has kept from most of us is that during most of American history, the numbers of immigrants have been small. There have been three major immigration waves:

            1. The Irish invasion from the late 1840’s through the start of the Civil War.

            2. The Ellis Island invasion from the mid-1880’s through 1924.

            3. The current post-1965 Hart-Celler invasion, which is still ongoing.

            FYI, during the administration of FDR, immigration was legally limited to three hundred thousand per year. Since 1965, we have been taking in over one MILLION a year, and that figure doesn’t count the illegals.

      • H1B visas. Getting Americans to train their Indian/Chinese replacements (who work for half), then getting laid off IS LEGAL. Until Trump gets in.

        • so you think having the government make companies pay for higher costs even though they can get services cheaper elsewhere is a conservative principle?

          • Free Trade at the expense of American jobs is something we’ve been told is a conservative principle, by the people getting rich off of it. We reject it.

          • Amen. Conservatism is economic nationalism. As T Roosevelt quipped, free trade is to patriotism what free love is to marriage and family.

            Free trade is a radical liberal idea, and one that is ruining this country.

          • Free Trade at the expense of American jobs is a Clinton legacy. The Clinton legacy is not conservative.

          • Things change. Free trade used to be a good thing. Now in a coming world of cheap manufacturing with automation- we will be able to make things here, again, for cheaper than slave labor overseas can do it. Manufacturing will come back big!

          • Yes. Americans place God, society, and family above self. Liberals place nothing above corporate profits and themselves.

          • I’m conservative, but MANY establishment republicans think all that matters are low taxes, a good stock market and cheap labor!
            That’s why they are being thrown out! The est. leadership has joined the liberals….

          • Yes, the people you describe are by definition liberals. We Americans too are capitalists. But we also value our country, culture, and people. Liberals only value themselves and their personal portfolios.

          • We are seeing a shift in manufacturing, labor and cost. Soon, with new automation, robots, 3D printing, etc. we can build things here in America cheaper than with slave labor overseas. Manufacturing will come back and be local and smaller.
            We need to educate and train the Americans already here for the coming future where mere manual labor is not enough for employment. It is self-destructive to import poor, uneducated immigrants, today, for their cheap labor when 10-20 years from now they are unemployed by automation. They will be here forever demanding welfare and Obama Care.
            See how Uber is replacing taxi drivers, while Uber HQ is spending billions to create self-driving cars to replace today’s Uber drivers! Working to hurt their own drivers!
            The individual worker needs to be prepared for the future! Even unions won’t help as whole classes of jobs fade away….Only the educated and up-to-date will survive.
            We cannot afford to absorb all the poor people of the world that want to come here!

          • They are bringing in non-Americans into our country to steal jobs of Americans. That is wrong. Yes, the government should control our borders.

        • Liberalism is that state at war with its own citizens, which is just what Dream is advocating with his open borders policies and hatred for American traditions.

      • What the hell does FTFY stand for? This isn’t Twitter or Face Book, so please, write like an adult so adults can understand what you’re trying to say.

    • Yes and theres has been a bush in the white house for 20 of the last 35 yrs! (daddy bush as vp for 8,prez for 4,gw for 8) enough!

      • I agree. I would only add that there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Bush clan and anybody running except Trump. ALL of them have sold their souls to the same liberal devils.

  9. Kasich is a fraud. I wish more people could see that and stop buying into his resume talking points. Everything he brags about is taken totally out of context.

    • Kasich is the GOP version of Bernie Sanders. He’s just a decoy, for Jeb (the establishment duckling). If Jeb gets the nomination, we’ll have nothing more than a cowardly, yellow squeaky toy.

      • Not sure I get the analogy to Sanders. Sanders is as true to himself as there is on either side. Kasich is a fraud. Jeb is the establishment’s fair-haired candidate, but he has little chance.

        Above all…ANYBODY BUT HILLARY!

        • Well the analogy is this. Sanders was the faux-candidate to allow the democrats to pretend they were having a primary. He was to ultimately get in line behind Clinton. Notice, they have slowed his campaign activities cause he is stealing the show. Kasick is the faux-rhino candidate that was to ultimate succumb to the ugly duckling (Jeb). They are still going with the rhino plan as if it has any chance at all. That’s my take on it.

          • At least Sanders recognizes that the current “open borders” attitude of this and past administrations is decimating the living standards for most working Americans. Sanders has called for tightening the immigration laws.

          • I don’t necessarily disagree with your take on Sanders but I don’t agree that Kasich was the R’s version of that…not with some 16 other candidates and not with the particular coalition of donors behind Kasich, most of whom don’t have the pull to be involved in a faux-candidate scheme. Plus, Bernie is an (I) running as a Dem. The Dems have certainly done everything they can to avoid the perception of a HIllary coronation, but O’Malley and Webb could have provided that without Sanders. Sanders can’t win the general election, though, so I’m all for him. Anybody but Hillary, Jeb, Trump and Kasich!

    • Kasich is very scary and is being pushed hard be the Media. He is strong for amnesty and common core. He is an arrogant establishment socialist.

      • If you think he’s a socialist, you’re not from Ohio. He’s a rabid righter running as a moderate. His education record is awful, and his claim of “fixing” the state’s ills ignores the very important context that he shifted all of those ills to localities. I don’t even think he’s running for President; I think he just wants on someone’s ticket as Veep so he can try his hand in 2024.

    • I totally agree! Everyone I talk to is for Trump 2016. The MSM lie lie thru their teeth about the polls showing promise for their bought and paid politicians. We are not buying it anymore. I would not trust the MSM to get the time right.

    • I was talking to a dear friend yesterday – 30, gay, liberal – mentioned I was all in for Trump. He said he was coming around to it. Gave me a tingle, it did.

      • I’m not worried about the general election. With the support of unions he’ll beat Hitlery in a landslide. I’m more concerned about the GOP Establishment pulling every dirty trick in the book to nominate Jeb W. Bush even though no one wants him (aside from those who have already bought and paid for him).

    • duhh! there’s nothing brilliant about it. It’s just common sense. Imagine that, we average Americans are all thinking what Trump is proposing and the media is now validating that yes, we are all smarter than Obama and Hillary (and the rest of the phonys)

    • These two links are so deceptive. Full of misleading comments and ignore the impact that creating millions of new jobs will have on counter-balancing reduced tax revenues resulting from the Trump-proposed tax rates. Typical MSM chatter for lofos.

  10. What Does Trump for President Mean???

    Trump to Fox News: “Take Trump Down” failed. You’re Fired!
    Trump to GOP RINOs: You have failed. You’re Fired!
    Trump to Democrats: You are corrupt. You’re Fired!
    Trump to Illegal Aliens: You’re going home!! You’re Fired!
    Trump to black and hispanic citizens: Jobs!! You’re Hired!!
    Trump to American Unions: More Jobs!! You’re Hired!!

    Trump Policy Papers…
    https://www.donaldjtrump.com/
    * Tax Reform
    * Immigration Reform
    * Second Amendment Rights
    * More to come…

    Make America Great Again!

  11. Trump already has union relationships from his real estate dealings so he probably has the ability to relate to them without making promises. He’ll take the endorsement but not the money.

  12. of course Teamsters and various labor unions support Trump. the man creates jobs.

    his livelihood and legacy after office depends on putting people to work, as he is deeply invested in the business sector of America.

    sure he has made a fortune, but from what? creating job opportunities for American workers through successful business ventures. therefore, his fortune is all wrapped up in the success of the American business environment and economy. that gives him incentive to create jobs and improve the economy.

    clinton isn’t invested in anything except her lust for money and power. she can’t create jobs. she just gives speeches and rakes in cash from poor college students.

  13. I BLAME DONALD TRUMP!!!

    Does anybody believe that this would have not happened except that Donald Trump LOUDLY exposed the corruption of the DC Crime Family? Republicans, Democrats, Obama, Clinton, Bush, Congress, SCOTUS, DOJ, FBI, and the corrupt media jackals have all merged into one giant parasite sucking the life blood out of the USA.

    The GOP RINO weenies have owned BOTH houses of Congress since the last election and what have they done? THEY HAVE SUPPORTED THE FRUITY LITTLE NARCISSIST AT EVERY CRITICAL TURN!

    Donald Trump scares the living crap out of these parasites… Without the Donald, we would still looking Boehner and nothing but RINO candidates Bush/Rubio/Fiorina/Kasich…

    When they all attack the same candidate… You know you have found your guy!

    Make America Great Again!

  14. Amazing how Trump addressing real issues honestly has opened the republican tent instead of the weak politically correct pandering likes of Bush, Paul, Rubio and the rest of the establishment republicans who have done zero to accomplish this…

  15. I am not an establishment guy, and I like what Trump says about immigration and trade, but he is no conservative. He will double down on Obamacare. He says he will implement universal health care, and the government is going to pay for it. His words.

    • Obamacare is a disaster! Trump also said that the
      ‘insurance companies will have NO boundaries across state lines”, which means they will have to “compete” for business. That is the key! My wife & I are now trying to figure which medicare plan to use, for the first time. All plans want you to come and talk to them, and it will be an hours long meeting, they state. No info is given via internet. A common retort for a question is that the final has not been issued by the slimy (my word) Obamacare. From all I read it will be worse in coming years. Family budgets are “shot to hell!”

  16. If Obama doesn’t surrender our country to Putn by the time Trump takes office it may be too late.
    We may need to take drastic measures in the mean time..

  17. Well, Trump will do what is necessary to get business going. Unions are great and all but if the business you hitched your wagon to is moving plants or downsizing then sucks to be you. Shrillary will be Obama with a vajayjay. Same tired, stupid liberal policies of high taxes and over regulation. Frankly I’m surprised it has taken them this long to figure it out. Of course Trump lambasting Ford for their Mexican plant had EVERYTHING to do with this epiphany.

  18. This is about Government incompetence vs effective private enterprise and how things really can be accomplished.

  19. But all those highly paid Republican consultants said we couldn’t possibly win with a tough Conservative Candidate.

  20. Trump knows how to make business work. Businesses pay taxes that pay for all the things Americans expect from their government and profitable businesses hire more workers.

    A rising tide raises all boats!

    • The union administration says to bring them on in. But the union members say build a wall!
      Trump 2016!

  21. The Unions did this joke the last few Election Cycles. Pretending they were fair in considering a Republican Candidate and always ended up endorsing the Socialist Democrat. Expect the same.

  22. I live in Macomb County Mi, all my life. I am blue collar so was my father union, my brothers, most of my family men and women, including my friends. Right now this area is Reagan democrat part 2. Only this time it’s Trump. I’ve never seen anything like it. I go to the bar, they talk Trump. Lunch room, they talk Trump. Shop steward I know said members have already voiced they will break with union and will Trump. I am voting Trump. And the congressman, in my experience, as usual for a RINO, is out of touch with Teamsters. Friends I’ve talked to say their will break also and vote Trump. My dad says the feel is exactly like 1980.
    TRUMP2016

  23. Private sector unions know that no Democrat is a jobs creator. Trump is going to bring over a lot of democrats
    Just like Reagan did

  24. Now remember the list of Republicans in Congress who have been refusing to elect a truly Conservative Leader now that Weeping John is about to leave.
    Every one of those weasels that vote for another RINO for leadership gets PRIMARIED.

    EVERY SINGLE ONE. TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT 2016

  25. Ben Carson should head up the ending of the VA, making it a felony to make vets wait longer than an hour for an appt. The vets don’t need to fill out more paperwork then when they entered service , they can be seen at the same facilities as everybody else..

  26. What a glorious year 2016 will be! Both the Clintons and the Obamas relegated to the dust bin of history in the same year!!!

  27. How sick is this part:

    Hoekstra says the group may not want to meet with Jeb Bush.

    “Hoffa tried to reach out and was constantly rebuffed by the Bush administration,” Hoekstra said. “So they probably wouldn’t want to meet with Jeb.”

    WTH is wrong with George Bush?

  28. Amazing the friends you attract by simply being a Nationalist American candidate. Maybe Dems and Pubs should try it?

  29. I considered Trump for nothing, until he began stating his views. That the Dem’s, Media, and RINO’s fiercely attack him 24/7, expresses their fear of this “Truth Spreader!” Our country desperately needs this no BS/PC guy!

  30. We are very patriotic here in Macomb County. There are many American flags out year round. We like his Make America Great Again vision. We like him bringing jobs back and standing up to Putin and the Chinese. We are sick to death of DC and everybody there. TRUMP 2016

  31. Unions are finally recognizing the fact that Democrat economics destroys jobs and income. It’s about time!

  32. I assume these polls make a distinction between the union members and the union “leadership” since their interests are not the same.

    • Members are breaking from stewards this time, atleast where I work, and I work in the heavy industrial part of Macomb County in Warren.

      • That’s encouraging. Obviously neither party has been good on border enforcement but there’s still a difference between the dems saying “we want to import more illegals” and the reps saying they want to stop the flow, but then not doing it.
        Seems easier to yank the leash on the republicans.

  33. This is certainly good news, and somewhat surprising if you underestimate the average Union member. The establishments of both parties are run by elites who want cheap labor and off-shoring of jobs to Asia and elsewhere, and only pay lip service to American jobs and manufacturing. I’m as happy they are turned off to Jeb as I am to read they don’t like Hillary. It was Clinton who signed NAFTA, after all, which lead to the loss of millions of American manufacturing jobs. Trump is the ONLY candidate who champions America and Americans, on the immigration front and with jobs.

  34. Trump will be better for union tradesmen … Build Build Build … thats what would happen under his purposed tax plan … lots of capital for huge union projects …

  35. If you want to build America you’re gonna need an American president. I am surprised the Unions are starting to figure this out.

    • It’s really the members that are changing, the the leadership. Just like Trumps campaign, true grassroots, from the people up.

  36. I can’t wait to turn Trump loose on the Democrat’s political Disneyland that IS Washington DC… What will all the lobbyist’s do with all that cash they stuff career politicians pockets with?

  37. Blacks should abandon Hillary as well, no democrat has ever done a thing for blacks, especially Obama,

    Any guy with 2 nuts should abandon Hillary, just because…

    Any woman with integrity and a brain should abandon Hillary because Hillary is a thief and corrupt and Waged War on the Women who Bill raped.. Hillary stood by her cash.

    I knew the Unions, mostly guys, would want to vote for Trump, a job creator, and guy.

    Honestly, voting for Hillary because and only because she is a woman is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of, yet I hear many bird brain chics saying they will do just that. So SO Sad.

    • –no democrat has ever done a thing for blacks–

      don’t sell them short. Grand Cyclops of the KKK, Robert Byrd (D-WV), did plenty for blacks…like hanging them from trees, burning their churches, murdering them, etc…

  38. —Clinton also faces snubs from other powerful unions like the AFL-CIO and AFSCME, refusing to back Hillary as they try to push Vice President Joe Biden into the race.—-

    don’t get too excited about this supposed Trump support from the unions.

    as soon as Biden jumps in, they’re going to immediately support him. i am cautiously optimistic that Trump may win some of their support, but i really don’t trust the union thugs.

    • Don’t write them off just yet. The membership wants jobs. They know an establishment candidate from either party will just give them more of the same; off-shoring jobs, and millions more cheap labor immigrants to compete for the crumbs that are left. It’s survival they’re looking at now, and they can see who can not only save them, but give their children a chance at a better life.

  39. The Trump campaign juggernaut is unstoppable on it’s way to victory. Donald J Trump is going to be America’s 45th President and will be one of the most loved Presidents the nation has known. A modern day Reagan in that respect. Winning the Presidency will be the Art of Trumps biggest deal.

  40. All Americans! All Ages, Colors, Genders, Political Parties, and now Unions… All Americans For Trump!

    Make America Great Again!

    • I’m so sick of the division that Obama’s election brought. Maybe it was like that before and I just didn’t notice, but it has been horrible. To me, Trump makes sense for both sides because he just wants to do what is best for America.

  41. The union members have foolishly been following the leadership who are nothing more than thieves stealing from union workers and laundering the money to the Dem Party. In exchange, unions members have received the EPA, who kills more construction projects and jobs than an atom bomb, the Kenyan, who killed the Keystone Pipeline jobs, and of course, the ILLEGALS who steal jobs from Americans and force higher taxes that the members and the rest of us have to pay to cover the insurgent thieves. Thanks Democrats – Donald Trump.

    • Perhaps it’s time for a Tea Party type movement among the working class Democrats. The Tea Party has been a thorn in the side of the Republican Establishment, and the Dems need a little of that same treatment.

      • IT was time long ago and the RINO’s and Dems savaged the Tea Party because both got exposed for the crony capitalists they are. Now the truth is harder to bury with the internet and twitter and the facts bearing rotten fruit.

  42. Trump isn’t taking donations. I wonder if endorsing him could help save their pensions by funneling that money to those plans instead of to a campaign.

  43. I am in Florida and my husband is in the IBEW…..we haven’t heard from Union leadership about any endorsements or such but the scuttlebutt is Trump is the man. (for now)

  44. Finally a union that is actually looking out for its workers. Trump will protect US industry with tariffs and eject job stealing illegals.

  45. Trump is proving one thing that I have suspected for years. Republicans are no different than democrats and have only contempt for their own constituents. They would rather provide the electorate with the left wing press approved “GOP Gentleman loser “candidate whose job it will be to make the crazy democrat look like a reasonable choice.

  46. Big step for Trump if he wants to win. The commie demoncrats want to ship jobs to mexico and china. Porch monkeys and dirty little azteks are you listening, the only jobs left for you is McDonalds. You can really make a living there…..

  47. This will ramp up the attacks from the fake ‘right’ on Trump (NRO, George Will, neocons in general, etc). He keeps drinking their milkshake and they’re wetting their pants.

  48. These New World Order swine from both parties are the problem. They want open borders and $5.00/hr wages across the board. They are ruining our culture and our economy. The Bushes and the Clintons, and 0bamao are just more of the Leftist dribble that needs to be gone from govt, permanently. Unions were also helping people that were NWO types, and now we see what happens with that. Time to wake up.
    Support conservatism and it’s principles. It always works, as opposed to socialism amd Marxism, which always fails.
    TRUMP 2016

  49. Just meeting with Trump gives union voters the go ahead to vote for him. Many would anyway, but this is effectively an endorsement from the leadership.

  50. Liberal/progressive/socialist/democrats could care less about American workers today. They are figuring to import enough uneducated illegals to remain in power, which power and money is all they care about.

  51. All Americans! All Ages, Colors, Genders, Political Parties, and now Unions… EVERYONE except America-haters want Donald Trump to… Make America Great Again!

  52. Even the unions would benefit from corporate reinvestment in the United States. No American workers including union members benefit from outsourcing.

  53. With Hillary making a run for President in 2016 these items are important for everyone to keep in mind in the legacy the Clintons have left: The Clinton Body Bags.

  54. So if Trump is not taking money from donors and this big group of workers supports candidates by giving them a large donation of dues that it takes from its workers… where does that money go ? I hope Trump accepts their endorsement on the condition that the money is given back to the workers who earned it.

        • Of course but an endorsement is not a donation. Nor is it coupled. And many who are not endorsed receive donations. Endorsements are an organizational way to voice support for a candidate.

  55. It’s hard to see why unions wouldn’t support Trump. Illegal immigrant labor and bad trade deals have been hammering union workers for over 20 years. Trump is really their only hope.

  56. Truth to election….unions understand what comes after the election if a republican is not elected…all their jobs will be at risk. Taking Trump at his word it makes sense to support a candidate who loudly hails that he will send them all packing. High time.

  57. What is going on here is the Teamsters do not like the Cadillac Tax, courtesy of O Care, on High Perk Health Plans, Make it go away, they cry. SUDDENLY, Hillary, who was for the tax all along, is agin it!

  58. Not only has Trump’s message resonated with the republican base, but also with hard working democrats who are tired of being told they want to reward these invaders…

    Trump’s entry into this race gives voice to all who are tired of being talked at, and then told hey are racist or bigoted for actually expecting solutions…

    Trump/Cruz 2016…because American kids deserve their shot at the American Dream first…

  59. The only people who want Hillary for anything but “Hillary for Jail 2016” are the elite and MSM who know they can count on her doing their bidding. She hates the common man and does not work for anyone but herself and the people who put her in power. The people in American are starting to get it. No Clintons or Bushes ever again. They have done enough damage.

  60. There is only one candidate in this race who can get down in the mud with the sleazy dem machine and win…and that candidate is Donald J. Trump…

  61. Legitimate question for Trump: do you support Right to Work? Any GOP candidate with a snowball’s chance in hell is going to say “yes” would be a non-starter for any union.

    • Unions better get off that quick, for the most part they exist only in government and professional sports. With right to work unions would have to compete for worker loyalty and be more responsive to workers rather than stealing their money and using it to elect Democrats who then promote anti worker policies.

    • I am not a supporter of unions particularly in the public sector, In the private sector they have a right to band together. (But don’t have the right to hold the job they want)

  62. Unions and Trump have one thing in common, they understand that cheap Mexican labor destroys the American living standard.

  63. Trump understands what our elected ‘leaders’ don’t…Supply and demand are in play in the jobs market in America…if there an abundance of supply, the demand remains low…as do wages…Cleanse this nation of all those who shouldn’t be here, repatriate the $2.5 trillion that’s abroad, and watch this nation flourish…$300 billion could be pumped into our infrastructure almost immediately…New VA Hospitals, bridges and other long neglected projects…The union heads aren’t stupid, they understand what a Trump presidency could mean for America…
    Trump/Cruz 2016…be cause our kids deserve their American Dream first…

  64. they said they wanted to meet with Trump and this former congressman is offering his opinion like it means something and fox plays it up

  65. Bill Clinton gave us NAFTA which almost killed the US auto industry and many, many more jobs. Now Hillary is against the Keystone pipeline, smoking from the same crack pipe as Obama ? Meanwhile Hillary is endorsing more open borders, illegal immigrants, more Arab Muslim refugees, etc.etc ! Not to mention the Global Warming hoax which is now called climate change which has been ongoing for millions of years.

    TRUMP 2016

    • Some dems to this day try to suggest that it was all the republicans fault…I ask them to kindly re-listen to Slick Willy’s signing speech on NAFTA…he damn near came in his pants…

    • She is against everything. Why on earth would she be against the pipeline? And why on earth would anyone want that old woman for a president? Ridiculous .

  66. It took awhile for the unions to realize that the Dems were betraying them.

    Now if the blacks would just realize that the Dems are betraying them also.

    • Ain’t gonna happen. Democrats could create a black Auschwitz and start filling the trains and they would still get ninety percent of the black vote.

      • I beg to differ. There are lots of videos on YT, and there has been for a couple of years now, of black groups and individuals, who are speaking out about the rotten and corrupt tactics of the left which is killing their jobs chances. They are finally starting to wake up.

  67. Imagine an America where it’s citizens were placed first in the eyes of the elected officials, instead of constantly last…
    Trump/Cruz 2016…because the silent majority is tired of being led to slaughter…

    • That is good, but you’ve got the winner in Trump. Carson and Powell are great men and hope they close to the top and maybe the cabinet. Powell has already retired, maybe he would come back. Forget Biden, Warren, they are out.

  68. Trump has some saavy, besides bragadoccio and can sit down in a room full of labor, and labor knows that Trump is listening. Hillary’s idea of labor unions is from a government viewpoint only.
    Do you honestly believe that any hard working labor union guy believes that Hillary was poor when she and Bill left the White House? How insulting Hillary and Bill have been to labor.

  69. If Trump gets the union vote and 25% of the Black vote, it will be a Trump land slide. nation.foxnews.com/2015/09/07/shock-poll-trump-receives-25-black…

  70. Trump supports American workers, opposes outsourcing jobs & opposes having illegals & immigrants take jobs from Americans. Hillary, Democrats and RINOs think that’s racist. Democrats & RINOs support international corporations who want to raise profits by reducing wages and hiring cheap foreign workers. But they hide their pro-corporation views behind fake rhetoric about helping the poor and nondiscrimination, while they make everyone poorer, and make blacks the victim of corporations. The news media keeps up the pretense of liberals caring about anyone, except corporations that donate to their campaigns.

  71. The DNC will reassert it’s control of Union Leaders thru bribery by election time and instruct their members to vote for Hillary, Bernie, Crazy Uncle Joe, or Stalin. This will break the Unions completly from their pitiful position now.

    • Union leaders have been fixing union contract votes for decades, but other than listing the candidates we are supposed to vote for on our local newsletter, their influence stops there.

  72. I clicked on the story from Drudge because I thought it said “Trump beating Clinton with Onions”. Boy, was I disappointed.

  73. I think the reason the unions support Trumps is because of all the union labor he hires when one of his buildings goes up. It goes without saying that it would be unthinkable in NY city NOT to use union labor in that city.

  74. The unions are hedging their bets. They’ve been investing in dems forever so if they win, fine. But, they see Trump has a real shot. So, support him verbally. All bases covered. I also think they understand what happens if Trump wins. More jobs = more workers = more union dues = more union power.

  75. The Democrats are notorious for telling Union members that they are for them but they often screw them when they are in power. In New York City under David Dinkins a lot of construction work was done by non-union members, only to have to be redone before they could allow the buildings to be occupied because of screw ups by the non-union people, friends of Dinkins hired. Under the Republicans, they hired almost exclusively Union workers, Giuliani hired Union construction people on all of the city projects unlike Dinkins. I am not a union member but I know many in the construction field. While some may be lazy the vast majority are not and at least they know what they are doing. When you remember the construction accidents during the Dinkins administration it was with all of the non-union and coalition members he hired, but you hear of almost none when Union workers are used because they have gone through their trade schools training and actually know how to build safely. Trump always hired the Union guys on his New York projects and he has done quite well as have his buildings. The rink in Central Park was a disaster and millions over budget under the Democrats but Trump fixed it in very little time, restarting from scratch, after many years of Democrat failure. My father in law was a union Steamfitter and he worked on Trump projects many times as a mechanic, shop Stewart and foreman and he has nothing but praise for the way Trump did things.

  76. the republicans better stop ganging up on . trump .
    he might take it personally and run third party.
    just for spite. he just might win.

  77. First Red Flag I have seen against Trump and it is BIG ONE
    Union employees represent about 10% of the labor force and 6 of the 10% are State, City and County Union workers. Every State that has Union workers is way past broke like California, they are in serious debt because of the ludicrous benefit, pay and retirement obligations that the citizens are taxed for.
    The regular citizen is already being taxed to death and the obligations for these Union workers are a primary cause.
    Unions have always been cozy with the democrats, it is the democrats who have made those deals literally in back rooms for election donations, it is the regular citizen who gets the bill

    • Why is it a flag – it’s not like Trump is kowtowing to them – he has put out his plan to build a better job base in the nation, they came to him, he won’t change to meet their demands, no $$$ from them to Democrats…..

    • This article is talking about a private sector union. You are talking about public sector unions and those ARE bad. Private are ok

  78. The jury is still out on Trump. Time will tell. Miles to go before it’s all said and done, but so far I’m liking some things I’m hearing from him. Mostly, he’s a take no guff off of anyone kind of guy, and I think he truly loves and wants what’s best for our country and her citizens. He’s got both parties collective panties in a wad, which I love. They simply don’t know what to do about him. In the end, who knows, we might just be saying President Trump.

  79. Unions….

    Prosecutor: You mean to sit there and tell me that your local takes in sixty-five thousand, five hundred dollars every year and keeps no financial records?
    Big Mac: Sure we keep records!
    Prosecutor: Well, where are they?
    Big Mac: (indignantly) We was robbed last night and we can’t find no books!
    – On the Waterfront (1954)

  80. Trump/Carson
    Trump/Cruz
    Trump/Fiorina
    Trump/Anybody

    Scott Walker as head of Labor Relations

  81. Trump actually has a brain and a plan. That’s why the establishment hates him. They never have a plan and were hoping to be elected without one as usual! GO TRUMP!!!

  82. There should not be a black advocate anywhere in the USA the still supports Obama. Blacks as a group have been thrown under the bus by mass immigration from Hispanics.
    They use races like pawns to gain political power for DC

  83. I’m not buying it, unions like minorities are a reliable Democrat vote. I would like to believe it is true that they are for Trump but I doubt it will happen when its time to pull the lever. Romney would have been a good job creator for both of these groups and they still voted for Obama, they will never learn.

  84. Yes!! Read this….

    The Trade Act of 1974

    The act delegated significant power to the president to invoke measures to protect American industries from increased imports from other nations, whether or not injury was being caused by unfair trade practices.

    The act’s primary importance lies in Title II, Section 201, which gives the PRESIDENT the authority to take actions to protect U.S. businesses from injury caused by increased quantities of imports, even though the increase in imports violates no ban on unfair trade practices.

    THE PRESIDENT CAN JUST DO IT

    CONSTITUTIONAL BASIS FOR THE ACT

    Article II of the U.S. Constitution has been interpreted to vest authority to conduct foreign policy in the president, but Article 8, Section 1 gives Congress the power to lay and collect duties and the power to regulate foreign commerce. Therefore the power to regulate trade with other nations must be delegated by Congress to the president.

    Section 301 expanded presidential authority to retaliate against trade practices by other nations that unfairly burden or restrict U.S. commerce, whether through high tariffs or through nontariff trade barriers. The president may suspend trade concessions, impose new higher tariff rates on a selective basis

    Impact of the Act

    Primarily because of Section 301, the Trade Act has been used more to open foreign markets to U.S. exports and investments than to protect American industries from unfair competition. Section 301 is a unilateral provision in U.S. law that can be invoked irrespective of any remedies available under the multilateral GATT or WTO.

    ***Although the United States has generally upheld its treaty obligations under the GATT, Section 301 actions or threats of action, despite at times creating resentment from U.S. trading partners, have been highly effective tools in negotiating trade concessions.

    • AND THIS ON OUR CAUSES OF DEBT….

      DOLLAR DRAIN DEFINITION

      Dollar drains are trade deficits that result when imports exceed exports in monetary terms. For instance, a country that imports more goods from overseas than it exports to foreign countries is, in effect, sending its currency overseas in return for those goods. This can lead to a shortage of currency in circulation at home, creating a tight money situation in which companies have difficulty obtaining the loans and funds they need to grow or to continue operations. Consumers feel the effects of dollar drains as well, since they cannot obtain loans for the purchase of property or for other immediate needs; a shortage of currency in the home economy affects every aspect of that economy.

      MAJOR RISKS OF DOLLAR DRAINS

      A ready supply of circulating money is necessary for economies to engage in setting monetary policies; loosening or tightening the supply of money in the market is one of the most important tools government has in determining fiscal policy. When there is a shortage of currency in the economy, the government cannot exercise this control over the economic situation. If the dollar drain continues for a significant length of time, the government may be forced to curtail foreign purchases or to borrow heavily from other countries in order to meet its obligations. This can lead to inflation and devaluation of the currency on the international FOREX market.

      **Most analysts believe the long-term solution to dollar drain is to promote and encourage consumers to purchase goods manufactured in their own country where possible; this can stem the flow of currency out of the country and lessen the trade differential over time

    • Probably. The Democrat bench has been destroyed so 2020 isn’t looking any good either.

  85. Don’t believe any of it. In the end the unions will support whichever democrat gets nominated. They’re just holding out for more and Trump is a convenient parking place because he wont get the nomination.

    • By that view you probably thinking if he did get elected, he won’t win the general. I would think you would WANT him to get nominated.

    • You are delusional. He is walking away with the nomination and he will win the general in a landslide.

      Only the stupid can’t see the writing on the wall but hey, feel free to keep spouting your ignorance until election day. I am going to save this post link just to come back and taunt you after both elections.

      • Oh, my. Donald Trump is not going to win a major party nomination. His unfavorable numbers approach that of Hillary Clinton. He certainly brings some energy to the campaign, but he won’t win a single primary.

  86. The leadership if the AFT endorsed the hitlerypig without approval from the rank and file. The members are up in arms and pissed at both their leadership and the hitlerypig. See some upset union election results in that union next year.

  87. Jobs, Oreo Cookies and Hershey bars made in Mexico. Union membership, Americans, and Trump want them all back here in the Good ole US of A.

    • I knew there was another reason for me not buying Hershey bars and Oreos other than they are fattening. I try to always buy American, although that’s getting harder everyday, but, if it’s a company that supports the commie progs I will not. Apple, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, Progressive Ins and Starbucks are 4 of them. There is a list circulating on the net of many others. Check it out and vote with your wallet as well.

  88. Everyone should remember that Trump can do only what he wants up to a point. Congress must participate so remember that when you vote for senator. You will have a better chance if Republicans have a veto proof senate with the house.

    He can then force issues by negotiation.

  89. A Russian General walks off the street into the US Embassy in Iraq and demands to see the Ambassador.

    When the Ambassador arrives he says “Sergi my friend, what’s up?”

    Sergi declares, “We are going to bomb the crap out of ISIS in Syria in one hour, get your freaking planes out of my freaking airspace right freaking right now, you loser.”

    The Ambassador blurts out, “Of course, of course, Sergi”, and after he gained his composure he added “You scared the crap out me, for a minute I thought you were going to bend me over the table and rape me up the rectum.”

    Sergi replies, “We’ve been raping America up the rectum ever since you elected that lead from behind, cut and run, community agitator for prez back in 2008.”

  90. Union workers should be the most opposed to amnesty for illegals and guest worker programs. They will be direct competition for their jobs.

    • Unions are in a dilemma. The Democrat party needs voters so the Unions can keep getting the bennies they want but in order to do that they need more illegals to become voters

  91. He needs to tell the Union that he will get that Mexico Ford plant built in the US..the blacks will also like it.JOBs JOBS JOBS!

  92. I bought a tube of Colgate toothpaste and the damn thing was made in Mexico…same with my Toshiba laptop.Most antibiotics are made in China…can you believe it. Mexico gets all the good jobs and we get the trash

    • I got a shock yesterday when I was researching Bose 301 load speakers, to buy. I have a pair that are over 20 years old,(still working) they were made in Framingham Mass. I checked on QVC, found them, read all the good things about them, that I knew, then read a heartbreaking sentence, “MADE IN MEXICO”. Good by Bose!

  93. Private Sector Unions OK, Public Sector Unions Bad…..very bad and there should be a Constitutional Amendment to ban all Public Sector Unions because it’s just not right to STRIKE the tax payer.

    • Absolutely..Govt Unions are definitely not good for America .FDR knew that 75 years ago.No way they should be in the Union so they can shut down the govt.

          • Exactly, history has shown time and time again Progressives don’t see themselves equal to the other animals in the farm. Instead of making it in society based on one’s talents and energy, the Progressive Elitists will only allow people to succeed if they follow and support their dogma.

        • Look what the teachers did in Wisconsin ..occupied the state house for weeks.Should have been run outta there with CS gas

  94. Today be da FIRFF of da MUNFF. Ise gots mines EBT cash monies and shheeeiiiit. Weed be legal here in Oregon starting today so Ise gonna buys me some chronic WIFF mines EBT monies.

    • I think this country has slid down the pole so low that I don’t think anyone really gives a rat’s patoot what the liberals say anymore.

  95. Good to see. I’m not necessarily a big fan of unions but I’m a big fan of high-paying construction jobs for Americans workers.

    Where the Hell is the Keystone XL Pipeline??? That damn thing should have been started six years ago but it was held up by that effin’ hypocrite (yeah, that shiitehead with the shovel-ready jobs, Barack Obama), and the other village idiot, Hillary Clinton, who recently revealed her opposition to the pipeline.

    There are billions of dollars of infrastructure work that need to be done and the Liberals/Progressives/Democrats/Hypocrites ain’t going to approve that work!!!

    Trump!!!

  96. The unions supporting Trump makes sense, he wants to make
    America more prosperous, he most likely has already dealt
    with them and Trump usually wins!

  97. People can say they’re waiting for Biden all they want, but it’s pretty much in the bag for Trump from where I sit in pro union Illinois. As an example the electrician’s hall down the street from me had a meeting last week and there were at least a dozen vehicles with Trump stickers on them. This is just anecdotal evidence, but when those guys publicly display their opposition to standard union tow the line thinking something big is happening.

  98. It will be easy for union members and other Democrats to vote for Trump. The Republican elite who run the GOP for themselves hate and fear Trump. So he’s got my vote for sure! TRUMP IN 2016!

  99. Unions know Hillary will sell them down the river the first chance she gets. Hillary is a loser, dishonest, encrusted with crime and spoiled rotten on her entitled lifestyle. Down with Hillary!

  100. How many people laughed at me when two months ago I started telling people in the forums that you’re not going to walk up to a Teamster trucker and call him a “socialist” unless you already have a soft place to land picked out and great medical insurance? That these people would vote Trump regardless of what hierarchy demanded.

    The bottom line is the Democratic party is at a crossroads and no matter who runs as a Democrat, or a socialist such as Sanders. The question is now out there and the Democratic party platform is now in serious question. Every candidate for the Democratic nomination is going to have to answer that question and for an entire nation, not just the Democratic party. This is one time the Democrats, or alleged Democrats, cannot plead the Fifth Amendment.

    So which is it? “What is the difference between a socialist and a Democrat?” DNC (Politburo) Chair, Debbie Wassermann Schultz refused to answer that question now 4 (four) times! Conservative Democrats have no desire to be branded as socialist traitors. The party is in turmoil and the socialists overrunning the DNC are now scrambling for cover. What self respecting Teamster wants to be branded as a socialist traitor?

    So where are those leftists who laughed at me when I started posting this two months ago? Still want to try to defend socialism instead of articulating the difference? Is there a difference? The Teamsters would like to know!

    • In 2012, the CPUSA (Communist Party USA) complained that the DNC stole their platform. Anyone who thinks Dems/liberals love America needs to think about that.

      • I believe that was 2010. The complaint filed was that the Democratic party had violated copyright by way of taking the CPUSA party platform and making a near word for word copy of it and relabeling it as “Progressive”.

  101. Why hasn’t Clinton been arrested? There are hundreds of violations of secrecy on her private server that have been well documented to date, with more showing up every day–so what’s the magic number? 500? 1000? 1,000,000 secrecy violations before she’s arrested? This is beyond pathetic–this government is deplorable. We’ve known for a long time that the only law Obama likes is the law that keeps his plotting & planning secret–and the Clintons obviously think that when it comes to the law there’s them and then there’s “everyone else.”

  102. PUTIN&THE CLINTON’S have something in common, both are serial liars at large, the left’s ”smart” talk in dealing with terrorism, has backfired, smart terrorism in reverse, after 2012, everything has gone to hell, with the rise of the JV team as ISIS running amok, according to the tabloids, with the HILDABEASTS health issues, she has only month’s to live, so indictment may be academic at best. IF sanders elected, good bye USA.

  103. I would like to say, its about time the Unions get with the rank and file memebers, most members have been support Republicans, not the party, but the people running, because of the principles they stand for. It is time for Unions to come around and get on board with members

    • Well, for what its worth, I don’t think Democrats have working people’s interests at heart. They do everything they can to quash free markets, and hand over our hard-earned tax dollars to every freak show that comes across the pike. Trump understands that he can’t be where he is without us little guys.

    • OBAMA bought the unions with the alleged aid of the stimulus bill, the unions bulked buyed the hildabeasts worthless books, the Clinton’s have let them down, as well as Barry.

  104. Trump’s politics are like a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale, smoke-filled room. He’s certainly got my vote.

  105. Bernie Sanders he will have the whole nation working it might be for $4.25 an hour but everyone will be working.

  106. If Trump treats the millennials with respect and let them know he understands their plight, Trump will have this wrapped up.

    The millennials have been royally screwed by the democrats and especially the RINOs. They face the largest national debt no country has ever faced. The political class has stolen their futures.

    Simple opportunity and government being off their backs will win these guys and gals.

  107. Trump pretty much has earned the Tea Party support.

    He has solid women support.

    He is earning conservative support.

    With the teamsters, he has earned the support of the Reagan democrats.

    If Trump can now communicate his vision in how DC will be put on the back burner and how putting opportunity back on the streets by slashing federal regulations and taxes, will create not only jobs, but investment opportunities the millennials will be there for him as well.

    Trump has earned a very large portion of minority support.

    Trump has gained this tremendous breadth of support by not pandering to liberals or the liberal agenda.

    Trump has gained this support by promoting conservative values and conservative ideals.

    Jeb, Boehner, McConnell, Graham, and any other RINO is tragically wrong in pushing the notion we conservatives need to be liberal to win an election.

  108. This makes me feel like I’ve been dipped in awesome sauce. :-) Trump gets the unions and this thing is his. TRUMP 2016/2020!!!

  109. Most of these Midwest union auto workers and teamsters are actually conservative….christian, pro-life, pro-gun, anti-illegal immigration, pro-small government, anti-having homosexuality forced down our throats, etc, yet their pro-labor union support is their #1 political issue. The Republicans have a great opportunity here to kick the Dems to the curb. Also, as a conservative myself, I’ve never had a problem with unions in the private sector. It’s the public sector government unions that are the problem…i.e. Teacher’s and other government employee unions.

  110. LA Times has an article saying the Teachers’ Union is balking at Hillary too, although it sounds like their alternative is Sanders. The Teamsters story makes my heart sing. Trump/America 2016!

  111. I am going out on faith and already calling him President Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. A businessman for all the people. Someone who understands what it takes to make a living. Someone who will not throw us a fish but will teach us how to fish so that we can provide for ourselves. While Hillary Clinton is busy 24/7 covering up her lies, Mr. Trump is already getting the job done. While Hillary is worried about the false “war on women”, President Trump is out there seeing how we can get jobs, making sure that people don’t take advantage of our country by entering in with drugs, crime, raping our women, destroying our land. Mr. Trump, you absolutely have my vote. I appreciate the businessman that you are and how you know what it takes to get America moving again. This shouldn’t be Democrats against Republicans anymore; this should be about dads and moms providing for their families, regardless of which way we lean. I WILL NOT support anybody or anything that comes against this person that has a genuine love for America and the people. Hollywood, you are on notice. I will not watch your movies anymore because you all do not have our best interest at heart; only your agenda. Anyone who speaks out against this man is not for America. Thank you Mr. Trump for already being a President for the people. Please, please, please DO NOT give up!! The more they bash you, the more we support you!! Thank you for standing for us and thank you for standing up for the United States of America President Donald John Trump, 45th President of the United States of America, the Beautiful!!

  112. People say there is a RACE problem. People say this RACE problem will be
    solved when the third world pours into EVERY and ONLY into White
    countries.

    People say the only solution to the RACE problem is if ALL and ONLY
    White countries “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those
    non-Whites.

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide
    against White people, Anti-Whites agree that I am a
    naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  113. TRUMP will bring more jobs and will make america great again! Ovomit has degraded this great country to the level of a third world hellhole. Americans are more divided than ever. The country is going down the drain. Abroad, our allies don’t trust us and our opponents don’t fear us. They know we have a weak do-nothing empty suit. We need somebody with cojones to bring this country back from divisions and economic stagnation. We need somebody with cojones to face Putin and the Iranian terrorist. We need somebody with cojones to stop the flow of illegal aliens invading our country. TRUMP 2016!

  114. Did you know Hillary Clinton was on the board of directors at Walmart?

    The mega corporation that gets all it’s products from China, and pays their American employees so little they have to be on food stamps funded by the taxpayers!
    And they cut their employees healthcare benefits and hours too!

  115. I am a retired union member (IBEW) I am also a Conservative and have been since Ronaldus Magnus was president. There are a lot of Conservative union members and we get tired of being lumped in with our sometimes-less-than-stellar leadership. One of Romney’s biggest mistakes was his constant union bashing. We are Americans. We coach your kids Little League, teach Sunday school, volunteer at all sorts of things, and serve in wartime as National Guardsmen and Reservists and we don’t like the path America has taken under the Muslim sympathizer. He has destroyed the coal and power generation industry. His Marxist economic programs have crushed the construction industry and put many of us out of work. Donald Trump works with unions all the time and he knows that they work hard and take pride in the work they do.

  116. If the teamsters support a republican,the recent convictions of the MA teamster leaders will be the top story for the foreseeable future.
    You may not know about it now,but rest assured you will if an R gets their support.

  117. As I’ve gotten older and become aware of the importance of keeping up with and understanding American politics, I quickly came to the conclusion that our current government Is certainly not by and for the people. With few exceptions, our leaders are naught but puppets for big Parma, biotech, whatever cause bought the representative. It is extremely frustrating to feel that despite loud and clear demand for action by the majority of the populace on many issues, the lobbyists and the big money are what controls Washington. Hillary is a criminal. She should be in jail. The upcoming prez election will determine the course this country takes possibly from here on out. Despite ‘The Trump’s’ many ‘gaffes’ and lack of knowledge on certain foreign policy issues, I (tried) but cannot withdraw my support for him. Trump and Ben Carson are the only two candidates whom I feel that I can trust with even the slightest bit of authenticity. Both men may make ‘pc’ mistakes much to the liberal media’s delight, and not know every delicate intricacy in foreign policy but I can more than half heartedly believe that they are the two who truly have the best interests of America and it’s LEGAL citizens at heart. I’ll also tip my hat to Cruz, good man but too conservative for me personally. The American public is begging for a president we can believe in even if we don’t share all their views. For that reason, I’m willing to overlook these non career politicians ‘non-presidential’ like gaffes. We need a uniter and one who is not afraid to speak the truth. Trump or Carson may be our last chances to save America as we know and love it. I just had to get that out. My point I guess, is to ask people to look past a stupid bar room joke. Will the PC masses be able to justify their stances when the formality of pretending that the current incumbents (with a few exceptions) are working in line with the wishes of thier constituents is dropped entirely? When Monsanto and DuPont blatantly control US national policy without even the pretext of going through their well paid Washington lap dogs. Oh hey, I’m talking to you Steven Palazzo. Thanks for the sell out you bloody liar. I’m frustrated. If Trump or Carson gets the nomination, can you honestly say it would be worse for America than the traitor currently forcing his agenda on the American people? If you think either would be worse than what we currently have, I beg you to look inside answer yourself honestly and vote accordingly. America will not survive another 8 years of Obama style ‘leadership’.

  118. It’s about bringing jobs back to America, and to reestablish our manufacturing, which was once the best in the world. That can only be good for unions.

  119. October 12 Columbus Day, the day has to be reassessed by Trump 2016 campaign. there are millions of undocumented workers living in the United States of America in the fields picking crops and towns in the Garden is the maintenance of residential houses and other hard work but decent and honest. The portable tent Trump 2016 must help monitor the major derigentes them like children university students from undocumented immigrants for them to be publicly hailed in the interests of all social inclusion with legal way to make a repair illegality returning to their countries with documentation for which automatically return to the US but via legal status that is the great spirit and purpose of the spoken by candidate Donald Trump of no more no more illegal immigration with illegal third term political disguise of bushses, clintones bidenes obamas plan. undocumented Latinos with their naturalized relatives have to support and publicly express support for the candidacy of Donald Trump 2016. Think big is to think positive.

  120. Hillary is all for the Chinese. Bill gave away the country to China. Taught them how to launch rockets. Even loaded our stuff on their rockets. The Chinese stole a secret payload by destroying the rocket during launch. The payload was not found even though it was tracked to the wreck site. Meanwhile NASA was starved. The Clintons are of the Clintons, By the Clintons, for the Clintons and profit to the Clintons.
