Judicial Watch investigates tax dollars for big labor to organize—in other countries

Big Labor has done very well with taxpayer dollars under Democrats. The US Report first began to report on this in March, 2011.


I began to question suspect federal funding for Big Labor in 2011. I kept coming across instances where labor organizations were getting taxpayer dollars for initiatives like organizing labor in other countries.

The magazine Solidarity credited labor unions in March, 2011 as “central to the protests” in Tunisia, and said “Egyptian Labor gave the decisive push” in driving Egypt’s president Hosni Mubarak from office.

Then I learned of millions of taxpayer dollars directed to the Solidarity Center, more than $56 million when two years, 2010 and 2011 are combined.

I messaged congressmen. I badgered media. I think I even sent a link to Drudge, but he pretty much ignores indie blogs like this one. I got nowhere.

Misleading, unconstitutional ‘Journalist’ bill heads for Senate floor

A bill many leftist newspapers like The L.A. Times are promoting as a “bill to protect journalists” has cleared a U.S. Senate panel. Don’t be fooled.

Parsed as a reporter’s “shield bill,” Democrats imply it will protect real “journalists” from having to reveal sources and testify about information gleaned during research and investigations. Who has the power to define what a journalist actually is?

Alt-energy has its issues, as media admit impact on birds of prey

Hawk atop pole in Jacksonville, FL. (Kay B. Day/The US Report)What is the total estimated impact of 4,000 windmills on the environment on a single site? We know one aspect of the impact. Wind turbines act like a giant blender for raptors, including eagles and hawks.

If you kill a raptor of any kind, by the way, you will face federal and state charges.

USA Today puts one annual body count at more than 4,000 based on data from a 50 square mile site regulated by the federal government. The paper also pointed to “wildlife, noise and vistas” as matters of concern.

Political casualty: As of Sept. 11, 2013, casualties continue in Afghanistan

  Afghanistan was, for most of us, the “righteous war.” That long beleaguered country in the iron grip of the oppressive Taliban harbored the terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on the first September 11 in 2001. We still have troops there, a fact many Americans forget.

Sen. Paul: Voices urging “slow down” led to diplomacy, not war

Sen. Rand Paul responded to President Barack Obama's address on Syria. (Frame shot/Sen. Paul YouTube)Sen. Rand Paul delivered a response to President Barack Obama’s address on Syria, and the Kentucky Republican enabled a peek into his positions on foreign policy and national defense. Paul noted that American voices, including those in Congress, urging everyone to “slow down” regarding military strikes on Syria led to a process for diplomacy instead of war.

Perhaps in response to political spin claiming the threat of force led Russia and Syria to negotiate, Paul said, “In fact, Russia has been negotiating with the U.S. for over a year to find a resolution to the Syrian civil war.”

Paul has been at odds with fellow Republicans like Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) who aggressively lobbied for military action.
