    President Trump's executive order temporarily expanding immigration restrictions to include guest-worker programs does not go far enough, the president of the nation's largest union group said on Tuesday. "Don't just do this temporarily," AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka told "Mornings with Maria." "Let's do this and make it a sane system so when there's a real need we can get people, but when there isn't a real need we shouldn't be able to bring people in to lower the wages of American workers." The order Trump signed Monday is meant to open more opportunities for Americans grappling with unemployment amid the...

    ROME, ITALY -- As Italy mourns thousands of coronavirus dead, and survivors brace for life in an economic wasteland, one rung of society looks to win big: organized crime. "The Italian mafia can turn threats into opportunities," top government anti-mafia investigator Giuseppe Governale told AFP. Over 10,000 people have died in Italy of the flu-like disease, which has forced the country into a lockdown that is devastating the eurozone's third largest economy. From the historic Cosa Nostra in Sicily, to the immensely powerful 'Ndrangheta in Calabria and trigger-happy Camorra in Naples, Italy's mafias were "caught on the back foot (by...

    Joseph Gambino, the easy-going son of Mafia don Carlo Gambino who became a millionaire businessman thanks to his father’s crime family clout — but who steered clear of the rest of the family business — died of natural causes last month at the age of 83. Gambino and his older brother Thomas were longtime owners and operators of numerous Garment District trucking companies. The family’s chokehold on the trucks that filled the West Side streets where the city’s rag trade once thrived was so total that competitors who tried to park their own rigs risked flat tires — or worse...

    Former United Auto Workers President Gary Jones was charged on Thursday with embezzling more than $1 million as part of a US corruption probe that has raised the specter of the federal government taking over the labor union. Jones, who spearheaded the UAW’s contract negotiations late last year with Detroit auto giants as well as a 40-day strike at General Motors, is accused of being part of a group of UAW bigwigs who embezzled more than $1 million to pay for private villas, liquor, golf and other luxuries, according to documents filed with a Michigan federal court and made public...

    With Democrat dreams of a soft coup now a heap of smoldering wreckage, and no need to play Mr. Nice Guy to please prissy softcons on Capitol Hill, President Trump is finally free to channel his inner Michael Corleone. It’s about time to re-christen Don Jr., and use that opportunity to take out the heads of the five families.  Trump already tossed mealy-mouthed ambassador Gordon Sondland out on his Nadler. Then military Twitter started buzzing with delight – well, not Blue Falcon Twitter but the one with vets who aren’t half-stepping weasels – at the news of That’s Lieutenant Colonel...

    (Video at Source) Nicolle Wallace, an MSNBC anchor, on her Thursday broadcast likened Republican lawmakers who supported President Donald Trump throughout the impeachment process to a “mafia family.” Discussing the president’s speech on impeachment today in which he praised his supporters in Congress, panelist Matthew Miller said, “He was attacking and making clear the consequences for anyone that crosses him. And also saying — and this is really important for Republicans— that if you’ll stand with me, if you’ll be my sycophant, you can come to the White House. I’ll praise you on national television.

    Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf, in an exclusive interview with Fox News while touring the border just days after taking the helm at DHS, detailed what he described as an urgent and “exciting” plan to go after the gangs fueling the flow of illegal migrants, weapons and drugs across the southern border. "The TCOs and cartels, they control the southern side of the border — they have to be paid, they have to be compensated for any of these large flows coming across the border,” he told Fox News. “You eliminate that and you eliminate their ability to recruit...

    early 1989, I was working as a business reporter in Washington, D.C., and interviewing a private investigator for a story about his company. At the end of our conversation, he casually mentioned he’d done some research into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. “Oh yeah?” I said, in an ironic, indifferent way. “So who killed him?” He said: “Well, I think this gunsmith in Baltimore, a guy named Howard Donahue, figured it out.” The private eye showed me a magazine article from 1977 and as I read it, my skepticism began to fade. Within a week, I was heading...

    Is Francis our First Gay Pope? Francis strolls hand in hand with the anti-gangster and gay rights advocate Fr. Luigi Ciotti. - Updated November 16, 2019 Yesterday, the pro-gay CBS headline was: "Pope Francis compare homophobic politicians to Hitler" Is Francis our first gay pope? It is beyond a doubt true that no pope or antipope in history has had a gayer agenda than this man. Put it this way, it appears probable that someone with Francis's gay agenda would have felt more at home in the idol worshipping pagan cities of Sodom and Gomorrah than in the tent...

Boggs was running an advertisement unflattering to Biden. In exchange for undisclosed considerations and because Sheeran felt "Biden was better for labor anyway," the Teamsters Union organized a strike preventing the newspapers from being delivered.

    It doesn’t get more hypocritical than A-listers jetting in on private planes to bemoan climate change at Google’s private party in Sicily this week. The Gulfstreams, mega-yachts and gas-guzzling Maserati SUVs used to ferry the wokerati around the seaside Google Camp have been spewing out greenhouse gases at the rate of small nations. Former President Barack Obama, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, singer Katy Perry and Prince Harry are said to be among 300 guests invited by Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin to their luxurious annual shindig which has been dubbed “Davos by the Sea.”
