Notice the Transparently Absent – It’s Who Was Not at The White House That Also Tells a Story…

Yesterday President Trump held a day of meetings with corporate business titans, CEO’s, and also skilled labor union officials.  However, two men were transparently absent from both group meetings: U.S. CoC President Tom Donohue, and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.

The reasoning for their absence is more sunlight upon the UniParty swamp.  Insofar as politics in DC is a false choice assembly of two political parties sharing the same goals and ideology, the uniparty, so too are Donohue and Trumka two sides of the same coin.

The GOPe wing of the UniParty is funded by Tom Donohue and his crony capitalistic U.S. Chamber of Commerce lobbying group.  The DEM wing of the UniParty is funded by Richard Trumka and his consorts in the SEIU and AFSCME.

Both Donohue and Trumka are operational agents and groundskeepers for the Swamp.  It’s an open secret never discussed by media; however, in the era of Trump their transparent absence speaks loudly.

The AFL-CIO, SEIU and AFSCME provide Democrats with the astroturf boots-on-the-ground for their political reelection campaigns.  The U.S. CoC provides virtually unlimited financing for the Republicans to write legislation beneficial to globalist interests.  Together they hold a political synergy; they are not oppositional on any swampian endeavor.

Both Donohue and Trumka worked diligently to create ObamaCare; a legislative priority necessary for both financial benefactors, Wall Street and Big Labor.

The labor unions present yesterday were skilled labor unions, machinists, pipe-fitters, steelworkers, welders, building, construction and manufacturing unions.  Trumka was not there because he is not aligned with the same “America-First” principles carried by the Trump economic agenda.

Trumka is a stealth agent; however, he did meet with Trump in New York a week earlier:

President Trump knows the inherent motivations and what underlines the agenda of each any every entity in the sphere of economics.

Additionally, the absence of Tom Donohue shows how transparently disconnected from actual manufacturing, building, technological and industrial development the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is.

The U.S. CoC is nothing more than a Wall Street funded lobbying group under a nice sounding name that disguises their globalist-aligned agenda.  As an actual builder of great things, President Trump also understands that aspect as well.

It is all so, well, cheerfully refreshing to witness.

Good stuff.

If President Trump keeps this up congress might have to start writing their own legislation instead of allowing lobbyists to do it.  Heck, I wonder if they even remember how?…

      I had the opportunity to observe Trumka when he visited the Des Moines AFCME head quarters the day before the former union president was being sentenced to prison for embezzlement. I have never seen someone (and his thugs that were with him) who look just like every characterization of a mobbed up union chief. Everyone in the office was scared $h!tless of him.

      • Her name is Mrs. Telma M. Mata,of the Heating and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers Union.
        My take on her is thus: When you get invited to the White House to meet with the president you just have to feel a bit honored and so you present yourself accordingly….unless you have bought into the Democrat party line about Trump then you go there with no respect for the man or the office that you consider he’s holding illegitimately.
        I’m guessing she had her mind changed by what she thought she knew about him and what she discovered about him on her own. If they ever meet again I’m betting she dresses up for the occasion.
        I personally found her attire to be an insult to president Trump.

            In straight up defense of this women. Being retired Ironworkers ( you probably falsely would call me steel worker) this lady may be a representative of a union , this doesn’t mean she is a fat cat. All unions in AFL-CIO may have equal representation but this doesn’t mean they all enjoy the same economic largess. For a bunch years I worked for great pay and benefit package. I raised two children in the same house. I made good money , not living in a big city, my money was very expensive. I would wear out a vehicle every three years or so. I can assure you wearing a suite was not part of my normal attire. When I needed new close for going to church I bought new work clothes . As need arose I would merely downgrade my church clothes to work clothes . And that is how most working stiffs do it. Raising kids was expensive . I had good benefits but there was always something. People who choose to raise their families in the cities do so realizing what they will be exsposed to. There is benefits to living in big cities but there is also downsides. I spent my working life burning the candle at both ends but it was by choice for my wife and children. Fact is I spent so many years laying down my life for my wife and children I don’t know how to do anything else.

              Wayne, my experience is that wealthy people “dress down” to show their independence and arrogance, whereas most less well off folks, given a visit to church or to a very important national event with an important person speaking to their issues, tend to “dress up” and figure out that to do so puts them in a positive light. Suits and better clothes are available second hand in perfectly nice condition, and very cheap. Sorry. I don’t buy the poor folks argument. I grew up in the South were all folks were mostly poor. We did not always LOOK poor and we learned social behavior as well.

          darnhardworker….. “When you get invited to the White House to meet with the president you just have to feel a bit honored and so you present yourself according….”

          Before we pass judgment on a person, let’s consider this scenario, and there may be another that explains the person’s clothing.

          Severe, turbulent weather in many parts of the nation. Her flight is delayed but she does arrive in Washington DC in the nick of time. However, her luggage, containing her dress, shoes, jewelry, etc, does not arrive in Washington, D.C. She finds herself in a city with which she is unfamiliar, the streets are clogged, all her colleagues are men which means they are not helpful in her predicament, and there is no time to shop anyway.. Time is running out. All she has to wear is what she wore for comfort on a plane.

          What should she do? Not attend and protect her vanity? Or does she go anyway, fulfilling her responsibility, even though it is mortifying to be improperly dressed for such an important occasion and knowing she will be photographed and, of course, ridiculed and scorned.

          It amazes me how quickly people on the internet jump to conclusions about people, especially if it affords an opportunity to criticize.

          This person obviously has the courage and perseverance to survive in a field dominated by men. She may very well deserve our admiration. The fact is…. we don’t know.

            This is correct opinion every Christian should have. Her face and hands are clean . She shows respect by showing up and not making a scene. Yes most people know the discomfort of not measuring up to the external standards set by others but I’ve got a feeling that our President wasn’t offended in the least , and was very compassionate and kind overlooking her poverty. She was probably on short notice and most likely cause others were not available for one reason or another . I really appreciate the breath of fresh air your remarks bring sounds right and godly. I wonder what Jesus estimation would be , seeing how He looks at the heart and not the clothes . Yet I see the point others are making but want to existent grace love and acceptance to others as I’m able.

            So, we can all agree on this statement: “The fact is: we don’t know” either that airplanes or unsuspecting men contributed to her wardrobe malfunction or not.

            But, good advice for professional women: never go too casual as you never know when your next meeting is with the President of the United States. Just thank goodness she wasn’t a educator dressed to work on ‘pajama day’.

                Indeed lost luggage happens so much that business travelers tend to use only carry-on bags to make sure they have what they need in hand, not in checked baggage.

                She could have done better, her outfit of choice did not complement or enhance her leadership position while her peers made sure they looked professional, even though they didn’t know in advance either that they would be meeting the president.

                In some countries, she would have been not allowed to enter until she was wearing something more appropriate, but fortunately in the US people will not make such demands and they were all able to focus on the opportunity to get a good dialogue started and get something useful done. The essential was achieved, so overall everyone is satisfied.

                Fundamentally, in a leadership position like hers, she is representing a large group of people so taking some time to present a good first impression on their behalf always helps.

                On to more important issues.

Anytime a cell tower goes up the telecom co has to contact and get consent from every tribe that was known (or if being accurate claims) to have crossed that particular land. The consent involves a payoff between $2k and $5k per tribe per tower. The only reason I know this is a very good friend of mine just had one erected. And she doesn’t appear to be Latina but I could be wrong.

      In my view, the United States has enough laws already on the books to cover any eventuality. (240 years’ worth of legislation ought to do it, don’t you think? At what point will we realize we ‘might’ have enough laws?) Congress meets for such a short session each year that I’d mandate the following framework for Congress:

      First, Congress shall adhere to the US Constitution, as written and legally amended. (That alone will clean up a whole lot of government spending, since the Constitution limits the power of Congress to do so much of what it has done.)

      Second, Congress shall begin each session by passing a workable, viable federal budget. So be it if that takes them the entire session.

      Third, Congress shall spend any remaining time in session cleaning up the books: repealing or updating old, out-dated legislation.

      Congress’ time could better be spent assisting the citizens of their districts, as they fight against their federal government’s myriad of regulations and constraints.

    Trumka used to be head of the United Mine Workers. Look up his history; he’s an actual union thug.

    I still want to know what he was doing in Cairo during the Arab Spring. I cannot find an article now, but I am positive I heard it reported he was there. I was watching the Cairo Spring stuff intently because I suspected it would devolve to radicalism just like Tehran in 1979. I worked in the coal mining industry when I was younger so Trumka’s name was familiar to me and I literally did a double take when I heard it.

    What I CAN find on the internet are articles in which he throws his support to the breakaway unions which joined the Cairo protests. I also found that he wrote an article about globalization for the Harvard International Review, which seems sort of odd.

        My dad was none too fond of unions, but he belonged to one in Dayton. Had to.

        About ten years ago, he told me a story about specifically why he hated unions so much.

        When I was 8, he was part owner in a building supply company, just south of Dayton.
        Teamsters went on strike. The company kept their trucks running.The Teamster’s kept upping the ante. They had sharpshooters stationed on a hillside overlooking the area.
        When they got bored, they’d fire off shots down the hill into the parking lot. The strike
        drug on for months. The company trucks were vandalized during part of the strike.

        The building supply company wasn’t a large concern. My dad was a partner basically on paper. We rode around in an Chevy Bel Air station wagon. When mom and dad bought the
        car in 1961, he gave her a choice of what they could afford on it. She could either have
        automatic, or power steering. She wrestled the car for 5 years. Anyway, when the bills
        came due for the total vandalization it was $50,000. This was in 1964, so do the math.

As insane as it is, it’s probably best to enlist their expertise to do some ground work in Mosul to get a CoC established there “for a country that needs the best of the best to reestablish industry”. I’m being only half serious about the where. But the best way to expose them is to give them a tremendous responsibility that fits in line with what they make it appear they do. Then when they underperform you can ask what it IS that they do…

The primary goal is making these people’s lives so much better, and as a side effect they see President Trump was right all along and it only makes sense to vote for him in 2020.

        I respectfully disagree. Interest on loans is slavery to debt. Interest (USURY) was a SIN WORSE THAN ADULTERY for over a thousand years in Europe- allowing the building of all those wonderful cathedrals in villages with small populations, and a prosperous Christian society across all of Europe. Invisible chains are no better than physical ones, and make it more difficult to notice you are a slave to your FUTURE LABOR. The word mortgage translates as “death-contract”. There are many forms of slavery, but our slavery to debt interest is one which has brought empires and nations to ruin many times in the past. The moneychangers in our temples are the ultimate enemies of Christ Jesus, who drove them out with a whip.

          Be very careful when turning to centuries of warfare for the proper version of “Christian”government as your ideal — no interest. Did all those wonderful cathedrals enable the population to live better and more productive lives?

          When “reasonable” interest can be used to make money work for free enterprise, then we have a productive moment. Interest also can be “slavery to debt”, a la student loans, etc. “Mortgage.” if entered into reasonably, enables one and one’s family to live comfortably and safely while engaging in productive activities. It also might turn out to be an investment, too.

          • Thank you pyromancer.

            Your comment that “reasonable” interest is not slavery is so true.

            If someone works hard to earn money, and then loans it to someone with reasonable interest so that person could buy something they could not otherwise afford but wanted, is not slavery.

            Most of us would not own homes or autos without this type of enterprise.

              explain how our Christian nation is 20 trillion in debt and we pay INTEREST on all of it, then.

              • We did not enter into that debt voluntarily.

                Thus the Cold, Cold Anger from the voters that put President Trump where his is today.

                We were becoming slaves to the uniparty in many more ways than one.

                Reasonable interest and debt agreed to by both parties is what I was talking about.

                We ,the voters, have been complaining about the national debt for decades.

                Our elected leaders ignored us and incurred more and more debt.

                That is not even close to the same thing as what I was talking about.

    I also noted Trumka’s absence, and wondered. But Trump did meet with him weeks ago, and considering Trump being open to the possibility of Romney as SoS even after his vicious attacks, one never knows exactly what Trump is up to. That, of course, is a hallmark of a great negotiator or card player.

    Trump winning over these labor leaders was a huge step forward to unifying the country and getting it back on track. He’s done more in a few days, in addition to what he accomplished before even taking office, than we were used to seeing in many years, despite repeated “pivot to jobs” preening and one absolutely stultifying “Recovery Summer “.

    Dang!!! … more 4-D chess. He meets with Trumka alone and “listens”. Trumka comes out praising their meeting (check) invites rest of unions for meetings post-TPP and glowing comments to press (checkmate)…what’s Trumka going to do reveal his true-self…NOT. He ignores Donohue and goes directly to CEO’s cutting Donohue out and potentially significantly cutting his revenue down stream as corporations realize they are not getting their millions worth. This looks like more WINNING!!!

    “The U.S. CoC is nothing more than a Wall Street funded lobbying group under a nice sounding name that disguises their globalist-aligned agenda.”

    Isn’t that the truth???!!!!!
    “under a nice sounding name that disguises ..globalist aligned agenda” — describes all the other deceitful, traitorous organizations, movements, slogans. Keep getting their strategies out there – the more that understand this, which is important part of “knowing your enemy”, the more success we will have combating them.
    So much depends on factual, historical education, knowledge for the majority. That’s why they hijacked our educational system and we must get that back too and stop with the hiring of all these horrible “unbalanced” Progressive/Fascist/Marxist lefties as teachers and professors.

      I tried to find out how the US CoC takes in money, and obviously it is muddy; however, it seems as though local and State CoC’s do provide dues as a portion of their income. I just wonder if these people know what is really going on. Also, Trump? or Kellyanne mentioned that many small business get their healthcare insurance via their local CoC’s. Does that have any bearing on income at the US CoC?

      I really believe we need a system where we do not have to JOIN a larger group to have affordable insurance. I have my own, and although it is expensive now, why should healthcare be any different than car insurance?

    No bill drafted by these guys, or like Obama’s “Apollo” charlatans that wrote his “stimulus” bill, should ever be allowed to even be presented for consideration, even if solely to test the waters in a committee.

    Any Representative, or Senator, that attempts to introduce a bill that he and his staff didn’t write TOGETHER should lose his right to introduce any more bills, EVER. If they try it again, automatic impeachment and removal from office.

    We did not elect Donahue or Trumpka to write bills for us. They are Mobsters, well regarded in our Compromised Capital, by fellow grifters, but Mobsters just the same. They need to be driven into the wilderness, far from OUR House, and OUR Senate, and most especially OUR White House. I’m sure there’s a comfortable Super-Max in FlyOver Country that has openings for these two.

    In any case, barring my fantasy solution above, I would like to suggest the following: no bill influenced by any Lobbyist or outside Organization or even a single independent Individual, should be allowed to be presented without identifying who the actual writers of the bill were.

    Full Disclosure, to include the background of the parties in question, their alliances, their finances ie: who pays them to intercede without our consent in the governance of our Nation, and their interest(s), associations, pay-masters, Ideologies and Foreign Influences that led them to attempt to play legislator using our elected Representative as cover.

    Let this be at the beginning of every such bill. It shall be the responsibility of the Rep and his/her staff to obtain and document that data. The Rep, on introduction of the bill, will read that “report” out loud, under oath. The author(s) should be present to answer questions and explain how they came to be before our Congress with a bill they drafted, instead of the Representative he has co-opted to further his bill, all under oath. The appropriate Investigator General, not a Congress controlled entity, fully independentl, will review such statements, written and oral both, and if any obvious or suspected untruths or significant omissions are suspected then an Investigation will be opened and the FBI may be employed in executing that investigation.

    The Rep can be censured, impeached, ejected, likely mandatory in some cases, consequences ALWAYS if falsehoods are revealed. If the author of such a bill is found to have proffered falsehoods and/or effected significant and pertinent omissions, Federal Civil Penalties may be imposed. Concealment of Foreign Influence or Pay would be a Federal Trial, Jury or Bench, and upon a conviction prison WILL be imposed.

    That would create a difficult straight and narrow way, beset by honesty and truth, with no permitted concealment of dark secrets or unsavory alliances, just dripping with Righteousness. Just the kind of path most Congress-Critters fear to tread, with those dread twin terrors of Accountability and Consequences.

    Such a scheme would change the face of things. It clearly leaves room for good citizens with good ideas [CTH!] To step up and offer solutions, yet terrify and keep away charlatans and self-dealers. Way too great a risk for the two master-parasites whose antics Sundance is keeping us aware of here. I do hope they get three hots and a cot, no more.

    And Soros we should arrest, charge him with a thousand counts of sedition, then send him back to, Hungary, n’est-ce pas? Where he is wanted for crimes for which they have made an extradition request, and they are not afraid to mete out justice. We’ll grant the rewuest only on the condition that if he’s still breathing after he’s paid his dues there, then back he comes for his sedition trial.

      Well Congress is never going to do that, but there’s nothing preventing the Trump Administration from creating a cover sheet with all these things and requiring a sworn oath that it’s true for every piece of legislation that comes across his desk. I can just hear Kellyanne and Sean Spicer “As part of President Trump’s America First policy he wants to know who is writing these bills and believes the American people deserve to know who is writing the them and why. Most people don’t know the lobbyists write the bills. Does that make sense? Don’t we elect our Congressmen and Senators to write legislation? Why do they outsource that work?” More sunlight is a good thing. Let’s get these jerks in Congress on the Sunday morning shows defending how they don’t write the bills they present.

      Im sure Sundance knows exactly what such a cover sheet needs to include.

    One of the things that President Trump is bringing to the fore is that he and his policies are acting in the best interest of American labor, thereby wresting away from the Democrats the mantle of the party who fights for the common man. The Democrats are being reduced to the party of extreme special interests. If President Trump can get the middle class job situation moving in the right direction, then the Democrats will be effectively finished. Getting America working again is a tall order so I’m not getting ahead of myself here, but if the union labor force gets behind Trump – that would be a very beautiful thing. BIGLY.
