Union Leaders Praise President Trump After Meeting – Cheer for Removal of TPP…

The America-First winning is exponential.   Union leadership met today with a pro-jobs, pro-growth, pro-USA president.  Leadership from construction/manufacturing, pipe fitters, steel workers and industrial machinist unions met today with President Trump and exit the meeting with incredible praise for the respect he showed them.

Pause.  Let that sink in.  Union Leadership praising a Republican President. It’s a new day folks, and President Trump is the leading edge of a tectonic political realignment.

Just to put an exclamation point on the evolution, President Trump takes union leadership into the oval office and puts icing on the cake.  Watch, and more importantly ‘listen’ to this video:

Legacy left-wing media will do their earnest best to downplay these events.

A few hours earlier President Trump brought the Corporate Executive Officers of major U.S. manufacturing businesses into a similar meeting to discuss the agenda of America First policy and outline his economic policy initiatives.

.

However, you’ll note the keen difference between the CEO meeting and the Labor Union meeting.   President Trump brought the union team into the oval office. This is not a subtle or nuanced matter which should be overlooked by those who are understanding who we have elected as “A People’s President“.

Trump is exponentially smart, and knows how to present a very specific and truthful outline of principle for the American electorate.  Within those bold truths, decades of manipulative political efforts deployed by his political opposition is simply destroyed like a feather in a hurricane.

This is jaw-droppingly brilliant stuff which needs to be emphasized.   Not only is our President focused like a laser on American interests by walking in the land of bold and dynamic truth, he’s also deconstructing all political opposition at the same time.

How are Washington DC liberal democrats going to stand against Trump, when the political constituents of traditional democrat “blue-dog” moderate groups align with him?  Short answer, they can’t.

How are Washington DC big government (Wall street) Republicans going to stand up against Trump when the base of their support aligns with Trump policy.  Again, short answer, they can’t.

The base of President Trump’s support is widening and deepening as rapidly as the base of his initial support was created.  The difference between the two groups is the initial base trusted him because of his history on these issues; the second group, the enlarging base, are those who did not believe but are now seeing reality – He’s the real deal.

As he reshapes the political constructs, President Trump is leaving the Democrat party with only the raving moonbats as their constituency – the very far left.   Additionally, those within the Republican party who oppose him are similarly revealed as big government, crony capitalistic GOPe types.   In essence, President Trump is methodically fracturing the UniParty.

“Wolverines” !

….Trump follows up meeting with the CEO’s and then labor unions, by IMMEDIATELY meeting with key Democrat and Republican leadership.

The party leadership is also watching Trump meet with business titans and union leadership, and he’s doesn’t give the UniParty any time to ‘huddle up’ and construct their political oppositional talking points.

President Trump’s schedule of urgency means the UniParty leaders have to relate to the events ‘in real time’ without the traditional poll-testing, asking the various lobbying special interests for constructs, or the ability to advance a constructed oppositional narrative.

In essence, Trump’s high energy approach, based on American values and principles, creates consistently building momentum and opposition is always reacting.

President Trump creates winning!

    I was watching TV today when they interrupted to show the Union Leaders come out to talk to the media. Cavuto looked absolutely stunned that they praised Trump. Also, I saw Ryan’s face when Trump was meeting with the Leadership tonight. He was very uncomfortable around Trump and was not happy. P.S. I am good at reading body language.

          It was educational watching all of the election night coverag after the fact. To a tee, the comment actors and number crunchers would break down the electorate overwhelmingly by race, sex, and education level, in that order. They then began to use the exit poll data as fact, making declarations of the changing face of the electorate in a direction that left the GOP in the dust unless they learned to compromise.
          Now, coalitions are being uprooted. What a shame for the narrative of the number crunchers.

        He is mobilizing our Patriotism. He, a sentimental patriot himself, knows that Americans’ love of our country is a titanic force, one that has been checked, stifled, and shamed by the leftwingers and their collaborators in the GOPe. He also knows that our freedom is what makes us the greatest nation on earth.

        I actually met Gov. Walker a couple of years ago, when he was thinking of running; I asked him, “Governor, why won’t any of you make the case for the AMERICAN WAY? That what made us the greatest nation on earth in record time can do so again?” but he just looked at me like a gigged frog. Same with Rick Santorum, whom I also met at a Republican meeting. There were several others.

        It was apparent to me that these people had just LOST THE PLOT. They no longer knew or believed in the American Story. They were all looking at the trees, not the forest. They’d lost faith in the Great Experiment.

        Which is just stupid: because America, as she was founded, and our Constitution, unleashed the true power of the people like no place else in history. Donald John Trump Gets This. And he has picked up Old Glory from the dirt where the pols and pundits have dropped it, and is leading us back into the fray. God bless him.

  13. I would also like to add something to Sundance’s brilliant observation. President Trump didn’t just invite union leaders to the Oval Office. He invited SKILLED LABOR leaders.

    The distinction of skilled labor is important here. The members those men represent must attend technical college for two years before they can even get accepted to the union apprenticeship which lasts another 5 years. That’s 7 years of training commitment to a single profession. They also must keep up continued training to keep the licenses. It pisses me off to no end when teachers union or other participates in the fight for fifteen nonsense and makes it appear that skilled labor is heavily involved.

    Many men/women from skilled labor have been proudly supporting President Trump for a long time. Today was no surprise and it was long overdue to see union leaders acknowledge him in the way they did. President Trump will grow his skilled labor base. He may even take the whole damn AFL-CIO. Collective bargaining shouldn’t assign itself to one political affiliation.

    It does help that a significant number of union workers voted for Trump, greasing the skids as it were for the union bosses to pay attention to him.

    It also helps that between Republicans and Democrats both, unions have been ravaged by the shrinking manufacturing industry. They are at a point where they have to consider their options or face eventual extinction.

    I am personally anti-union, but acknowledge that is the framework for certain sectors of industry, and that if we can get them on board with Trump’s agenda, he will be unstoppable in implementing it. They still wield a lot of power, especially in blue territory. That can convert Democrat votes on Trump legislation. Every extra vote helps.

        I have been in a union. I’ll state that up front.

        My primary reason for being anti-union is due to its socialist roots. You do know that it is a socialist entity, right? It is anti-capitalist in nature.

        I am a free-market capitalist. I believe, and have seen in action, that pay, benefits, and protection of workers naturally become better under good conditions.

        Unions exist to force these things on a company, regardless of conditions. That in and of itself introduces risk to a company. If they can’t afford in bad times to continue to operate under a bargaining agreement, ultimately they shutdown or leave the country. The union will always eventually kill its own jobs. It always happens sooner or later.

        Another reason I am anti-union is for the same reason I am anti-homeowners associations. The same kinds of people who end up running HMAs are the same who end up running unions most of the time. Self-interested people who are more interested in what they want than what their constituents want. They’re politicians basically.

        Most workers neither have the time or interest to take part in union politics, not that their voice would be heard anyway (I tried). So their fate is generally in the hands of a select few. It’s a microscopic version of socialism. The “idea” is a collective makes decisions to benefit the whole. But it always ends up being a select few who make decisions that benefit themselves.

        And ultimately I am against any kind of collectivism, in any shape or form. I’ve only worked one union job. I had steadier pay increases in my non-union jobs, than the union one, because of politics. I was anti-union before being in one; being in one only confirmed my reasons for being so.

        Finally, I do not trust how unions entrench themselves and how the rules favor unionization. I was there when the union was voted in: we voted our ballots with some union thug breathing down our neck. We had to fill it in pencil. Not pen. Pencil. The box with the ballots was kept overnight by the union thug.

        Several years later, most of my coworkers decided they’d had enough of the union and wanted out. That is when we found out that getting out was almost impossible. And that it was illegal to even discuss it except outside of work.

        Fat chance getting everyone together after work to discuss it…most worked shifts. Discussing unionizing, however, was perfectly OK. So it’s a double standard benefiting unions.

        The reason the union pressed to come in was because many of their workers were facing layoffs soon and they wanted seniority status to hire in to take jobs at our plant.

        I have a lot of reasons to not like or trust unions. These are but a few.

            I didn’t know that, but knowing a lot about the early progressive movement in the US, it wouldn’t surprise me either.

            Unions were also used by the Soviets to push their brand of communism into the US. For a long time actually. Luckily, it didn’t take very well with most unions, and so they shifted focus mostly towards academia.

            While we are still dealing with that legacy, their failure with the unions meant communism had really no chance to take hold in the US. There would be no “worker revolution” here.

            It’s funny how much McCarthy and the “witch hunt” for communists was actually correct in hindsight. Many of the accused turned out to be actual communists, including FDR’s leading economist and architect of Bretton Woods, Harry Dexter White.

                • Another reason unions didn’t follow their Communist bosses is that the union guys were Americans. George Bernard Shaw marveled at the attitudes of the union leaders meeting employers. Unlike the British, whose class system established the union guys as one-down right from the start, Shaw said the American guys walked into the Boss’s office and dealt with him AS IF THEY WERE HIS EQUALS! Oh, the horror!
                  That told me a lot about America (I was 24 when I was binge-reading Shaw), about Shaw ( a Socialist bstrd, if there ever was one), and about a real class system.

          I believe I have a right to defend myself and one way to do that is to be armed. I see a union in the same way. I can use a gun to protect myself or I can use it to rob. Clearly using it to rob is wrong. Using to defend myself from someone who would do me harm is something else. Now you can say if I don’t like the conditions leave. Sounds good until there is nowhere else to go. Voting with your feet doesn’t always work.
          Now if union leadership goes bad is no different than gvt leadership going bad. Currently to me the right looks to be vastly superior to the left. But that pendulum swings and never stops.

It’s landing electric live thats enough to fry an elephant. The boss, project manager has often times not done the work they are supervising. And they supervise from the safety of an office. Skilled labor deserves representation. But that’s why I separate skilled labor from many other unions who start the year with a year’s worth of work regardless of economy.

        Well, safety really has nothing to do with unions, non-unions, or regulations in my experience, and everything to do with the culture of the workplace. Culture is everything when it comes to safety.

        Ideally (and I have seen this in action in one particular workplace, non-union), workers do have representation…in a good boss. Regardless of if he or she has done the work (the specific case was a she who had not done the work, but was an excellent leader…ex-army officer…who put her workers first).

        I just haven’t seen the benefits of unions to counter the drawbacks. Most every workplace has relatively good safety in the US. And I don’t even attribute that to regulations.

        Lawsuits have done more for worker safety in the US than anything.

        Kinda funny you mentioned both electrical work and nuclear work, as I have done both (currently work in nuclear). I’ve never welded at 200′, but I’ve changed light bulbs that high up on smoke stacks at a steel mill. It’s amazing how much such mammoth structures swing in the wind when you are that high up.

The point is that a contractor is pushed to meet time constraints. An employee of a nuke plant isn’t. The contracted worker must ignore the idiot 30 miles away who’s dressed business casual and doesn’t know what they are talking about. But that changes his/her status with that office. Simply because he/she chooses to do the right thing. But since you insist. Here’s an example. And it isn’t funny.

          “Well, safety really has nothing to do with unions, non-unions, or regulations in my experience, and everything to do with the culture of the workplace.”
          Last think one hears leaving my union hall is “work safe”.

            You hear that pretty much anywhere you work nowadays. Platitudes do not a safety culture make. It is more than that, more than posters, more than training sessions or PPE rules.

            It is an attitude that permeates the entire work force from top to bottom that safety is truly the first and foremost consideration. And most companies, union and non-union alike, don’t ever have that sort of safety culture.

      One sector of Unions I’ve not minded is skilled labor. To me, it acts as a measure to ensure competence in trades where f-ups can be horrible. Also don’t mind police/fire/bp…jobs which entail considerable personal risk and may need defending from gov’t run amok.

      Rich Trumka of the AFL-CIO visited President Trump at Trump Tower last week before the inauguration. I saw a photo on Trumka’s twitter page. He said they had a good meeting – he’ll be on board whether it’s directly or by osmosis.

    All sounds so good. But with new manufacturing and infrastructure jobs, comes more union members. Union wages are are big part of why companies bailed out to other countries to begin with, We have to keep them in check this time? How? Right to Work has its place but that doesnt solve the problem.

    President Trump seems to always be at LEAST one step ahead of republican AND demo-rat leaders, and the MSM… I find that fascinating! His ‘one-step-ahead’ abilities contribute immensely to the continued WINNING for all Americans, and to the frustration of those who cannot out-think, out-smart him!

    It surely DOES drive them all crazy, and along with all the WINNING, it makes watching what he accomplishes so fun to watch!

    And fellow Deplorables… He’s only officially doing the work of the American people one day so far… PLEASE, let’s keep enjoying the WINNING and not even kid about it being too much, too soon. We’ve waited so very long for such a time. We never thought it would happen. We lived with our guts all twisted and our concerns overwhelming for so long. It’s certainly TOO early to even kid about ‘it’s too much winning’; we shouldn’t let that thought even cross our minds! IMHO.

    I can’t wait to see what Mr. President accomplishes tomorrow!

You and the media massed and attempted a media assassination of DJT as his presidential campaign grew ~ and grew ~ and grew….. So did DJT!!! He grew, in part, by standing up to you and your mates, taking your best shots then responding with even bigger, better shots, because it is the MAINSTREAM MEDIA who is the bogyman, or should I say “bogymedia,” not DJT! The anger, vitriol, bias and lies came from you ~ and asymmetrical candidate and POTUS that he is, DJT refused to be your punching bag! He punched back!!!

        Excellent, Jim! Don Knotts, however, was a great actor who depicted a harmless, warm-hearted, bumbling side kick who was the comic relief to a strong Sheriff. Sadly, MSM is not harmless or warm-hearted but they more and more bumble their profession and if we look at their slanted version of the truth, one COULD say they are comic relief, but again, they are NOT harmless… so to me they are no Don Knotts. Anyone have a better suggestion??

        In any event, yes, the cheers are for our Wonderful Wizard of Deplorables, President Trump and NOT for the lying media.

    Maybe some one can explain for me – was raised in grew up in Arizona, so my knowledge of Unions is not vast. Now it affects my husband, which affects our family.

    My husband has worked from a business which is like a Costco but for restaurant owners. The company has 2 locations in Arizona, and their headquarters are located in New York. When hired, he was told that he would have to pay dues and become a member of the UFCW 348S (also in NY)- that only management was non union . 7 years later, the UFCW348S leadership envolved in some scandal and imprisoned .. the new leadership renamed UFCW 2013. He pays dues to the union, and literally has never seen a representative from the union, half the time our insurance through the union is denied (especially when the office is closed for verification), since out of state. Last year he had to get knee surgery, ever claim that was sent to them, didn’t get paid, after months of sending them notices w/ the correspondence that the hospital/doctor were sending to the house… they slowly started paying them. I would have called but at the time, their website (union) did not even provide a phone number!

    Recently my husband changed departments, which was a difference in pay – they never rehired for the position he left and now had questions about the pay since he is required to preform for both – he was told that he would have to contact his union when he asked the store manager. I looked up the union UFCW2013 website — and i saw 2 entries on their recent news site,

    U.F.C.W Local 2013 President Louis Mark Carotenuto On Election Day Results
    stating … “As divisive as Trump’s campaign was, he has won and it is a reality we must all live with. I see this as an indictment of how divided our country truly is. To echo the sentiment of Hillary Clinton’s concession speech this morning, we must maintain hope, dignity, and respect for one another. Together, we must rise above the toxicity and begin the work of getting our country back on track.
    As a labor organization, we must renew our efforts and fight harder than ever before for our members. Clear eyed and focused on making sure that neither Trump, nor any politician that seeks to degrade the hard working and the middle class succeeds. Our Union will be committed and on the front lines of the fight to support our members as they fight to support their families and way of life, continuing to strive for sustainable, livable wages, and benefits.

    This Saturday, November 5th, a group of Local 2013 activists traveled to Philadelphia to knock on doors to Get Out the Vote for Hillary Clinton. Joined by sister U.F.C.W Locals and other Union allies, volunteers talked to hundreds of voters in the crucial battleground state.

    Now I have more questions then ever… .. Do they use my husbands membership dues to pay and support Hillary Clinton. What is the purpose of the union itself… How do they really help at all….

    Maybe someone can explain it so I am not so negative about it!

      Yes, they’re using your husband’s dues for supporting Democrats across the nation, especially for president, etc. If you look at the biggest money donors to the Dem campaigns, the unions give Dems MORE MONEY THAN ANY OTHER ORGANIZATION. Millions and millions of your dollars, all shoveled at politicians like Hillary. It’s outrageous.

I believe his union of grocery store workers paid his way. Glad he, and they, lost and Walker won! THIS is what Walker had to go through and what Reince experienced as well.

        Arizona is a right to work state – I don’t see how they have jurisdiction here to make my husband join the union that literally does nothing for him /them. In the 7 years has never had an union meeting or even had a union representative come to his site – during the first year, he had said that they had offered his co-worker .50 raise to the their union steward – they laughed because when he asked what he would have to do – the guy told him that if someone was going to get fired, he had to be present in the room…. asked do i have to say or do anything – the management said no… when i have questions and tell my husband to ask management – they tell him to contact the union???

    It would also be good to consider the potential long range foreign policy consequences this may have…the media will be sure to yammer on about the short range implications (which will not be entirely the truth: China will be featured, but they are not the ones who will be complaining the most about this). In my opinion Trump has done a remarkable thing in this category as well by dropping TPP. It should benefit not only the U.S. but also Asia long term in regards to stability (it will of course be up to the Asian countries to capitalize on this, but he has set the new stage and given that opportunity).
    This is of course just my opinion; I have considered TPP to be potentially very destabilizing for all countries involved long term.

    Sundance, you captured Trump’s brilliant strategy and tactics in a nutshell: “President Trump’s schedule of urgency means the UniParty leaders have to relate to the events ‘in real time’ without the traditional poll-testing, asking the various lobbying special interests for constructs, or the ability to advance a constructed oppositional narrative. In essence, Trump’s high energy approach, based on American values and principles, creates consistently building momentum and opposition is always reacting.”
