MUST-SEE: Steelworker Brought to Tears While Talking About How Trump Has Helped American Workers

Published

on

I come from a union family. Mostly millwrights and ironworkers, but I can relate to this story. I stand out as a conservative among mostly Democrats in my family. Many of my clan voted for Obama if you can believe it. They deeply regretted it and did not think President Trump would be a union supporter. They could not have been more wrong and now they support Trump and his policies. The president has helped those in the construction trades a great deal. He has brought jobs back to an industry that was devastated by the last administration.

Yesterday, President Trump spoke to a gathering of workers at a newly reopened U.S. Steel mill in the St. Louis-area town of Granite City, Illinois. He called the plant’s reopening a “great victory” and an “honor.” Leadership with U.S. Steel is now saying that the tariffs put in place by President Trump have led to the decision to restart a blast furnace at the mill, which brought back 500 jobs. They are promising an additional 300 jobs by October, when they plan to restart a second blast furnace. That means everything to those people in that community.

After President Trump spoke at the event, KSDK News interviewed a steelworker who got choked up when discussing all the president has done for American workers. The man’s name was Tony and he is a third-generation steelworker who was laid off two-and-a-half years ago. Can you imagine being out of work that long with a family to support? That’s gut-wrenching. In Tony’s case, he found other work, but in order to make a go of it, he had to work 70 to 80 hours a week just to pay the bills. There’s a lot of people out there that can relate to that situation.

Posted by KSDK News on Thursday, 26 July 2018

Since Tony got his job back at the mill, he says he can make a living with a 40-hour week and spend more time with his family. He was asked what it meant to his family and friends to have him back at work at the mill and he wiped tears from his eyes as he replied, “That we’ve got a way of life.” “It’s just nice to know that we’ve got someone fighting for us to keep our jobs. It was rough for a lot of us,” Tony said. I got choked up just watching the video.

The reporter asked him to share the one thing he wants people to know about President Trump and the economy. “We’re back,” he said. That pretty much says it all for the construction industry and others out there. They just want to work, to do their jobs and live their lives. This gives them a chance to do that with dignity once again. Many people don’t realize that a lot of the time in construction, the trades are generational. My father’s father was a millwright. My cousins and their sons are ironworkers. It’s passed down to younger generations and taught to them. And with President Trump’s apprenticeship program going into force, even more young people will learn a trade. That changes lives for the better.

These are hard-working men and women that love President Trump and what he has done for them. It means the world to these families and you can see it in their eyes and hear it in their voices. This is what having Trump as president has done for these communities. It’s given normal working class people a chance to make it again and come back better than ever.

With the GDP growth hitting 4.1 percent in the second quarter and even better job growth on the way for America, I would not be surprised if Trump wins in an even bigger landslide in 2020. Yesterday, Trump said, “Somebody actually predicted today, 5.3 [percent GDP growth] — I don’t think that’s going to happen. If it has a 4 in front of it, we’re gonna be happy. If it has a 3– 3.8, 3.9, 3.7, we’re OK. These are unthinkable numbers. If I would have used these numbers during the campaign, the fake news back there would have said, ‘He’s exaggerating.'” But it turns out he wasn’t. Trump has kept yet another promise and the working men and women of America will never forget it.

“Together, we are really starting to live by two very important rules: Buy American and hire American,” Trump said at the Illinois event. Then, four local workers took the stage one-by-one at the gathering, recounting the difficulties of recent layoffs in the community and praising Trump’s policies for helping them get back to work. You hear it over and over again… real hope is back in the job market. President Trump has gotten concessions on trade with the EU when analysts said it was impossible. He has reopened coal plants, steel mills and manufacturing facilities. Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs are actually working for America and the trade playing field is now being leveled internationally.

Speaking to the invitation-only crowd gathered at a warehouse on the plant grounds, Trump said he was “here to celebrate a great victory.” “After years of shutdowns and cutbacks, today the blast furnace here in Granite City is blazing bright, workers are back on the job, and we are once again pouring new American steel back into the spine of our country,” he said. There are a lot of workers out there counting their blessings that Trump became president and is once again making America the great producer she has always been.

BREAKING: Migrant Caravan Swells Massively Overnight – Invasion Imminent At Border

Published

* By

Yesterday we had reports that as many as 2000 Central American migrants had turned back.

According to reports, thousands joined the caravan out of the blue overnight, though. Numbers now range at over 7000 in the group. Apparently Mexican forces are standing down or being overwhelmed.

We need the military on the border ASAP!

The L.A. Times is reporting:

“A caravan of Central American immigrants started walking north into Mexico early Sunday, blowing past police and immigration officials as they continued their journey toward the U.S. border.

A group of several thousand immigrants set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. They were headed for the city of Tapachula, about 18 miles away.

It was unclear whether the police planned to stop the group. At one point, a large contingent of federal police officers blocked the road before retreating. At another point, a small group of police watched as members of the caravan passed, some of them running and skipping.

When a small group of immigration officials tried to stop the caravan to convince its members to apply for political asylum, the caravan swept past them too.

On Friday and Saturday, officials watched as thousands of migrants illegally crossed the Suchiate River that forms the border between Guatemala and Mexico.

Gerardo Hernandez, head of the civil protection agency in the municipality of Suchiate, Chiapas, said 7,233 immigrants were registered over the last three days at a shelter in Ciudad Hidalgo. He said his agency has been asked to help provide the immigrants with food and shelter.

The caravan left the impoverished and crime-ridden Central American nation of Honduras more than a week ago, and its participants began arriving late last week at the Guatemalan border town of Tecun Uman, just across the river from Ciudad Hidalgo.

The migrants say their intent is to cross into the United States. The Trump administration has vowed to stop their advance and has threatened Mexico and Central American countries with economic reprisals if they fail to stop the migrant group.

President Trump has made the caravan a campaign issue at his rallies in the closing weeks of the U.S. midterm election campaign, labeling the assemblage of bedraggled migrants a threat to U.S. security and saying he would call out the military should the migrants make it to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, under pressure from Trump, has said that no migrants will be allowed to enter the country in an “irregular” manner.

On Friday, Mexican authorities put on a show of force when several thousand caravan participants tried to storm the official Mexican border crossing into Ciudad Hidalgo. With tear gas and police in riot gear, Mexico thwarted the attempt to breach the border, an operation that drew praise from Trump.

The caravan is made up mostly of men but also includes hundreds of women and children, some of whom said they were fleeing violence.”

The Gateway Pundit also reported:

“The illegal migrant caravan is sweeping through Chiapas in southern Mexico on Sunday, their numbers having jumped to over 7,000 overnight from just a few thousand as it became apparent the caravan would not be stopped by Mexico. After blocking the migrants on a bridge Friday, Mexican officials allowed the migrants to swim and raft across a river from Guatemala into Mexico Saturday and then regroup in a riverside park. Mexico also allowed over 600 women and children to legally enter for processing on Saturday.

Reports from the caravan state that on two occasions Mexican federal police stood in formation to meet the caravan as the migrants staged a massive march up a highway. As the migrants approached both times the Mexican police stood down and let them pass. A Mexican official was reported to have said they can’t stop 7,200 people.

Kate Linthicum with the Los Angeles Times reported on the two failed attempts to stop the caravan Sunday: “I’m only just realizing the massive scale of this caravan as they march north into Mexico. It’s several thousand people. Just look…A group of immigration agents stopped the caravan to ask them to apply for asylum in Mexico. The caravan blew past them…The caravan just swept past a large contingent of Mexican federal police, who didn’t do anything to stop them…”

State Assembly Just Impeached Their Entire Supreme Court – They’ve Had It!

Published

on

...

* By

In what has to be the feel-good story of the day, The Hill is now reporting that the West Virginia House of Delegates actually voted on Monday night to impeach all of the justices on the state Supreme Court. This decision was prompted by reports of extravagant spending on office renovations.

In a series of votes that of course fell along party lines, lawmakers approved 11 articles of impeachment against the four sitting justices. Sending the process on to the State Senate.

State lawmakers had originally voted to impeach Justice Allen Loughry on eight articles after he and his office spent $363,000 in renovations. This became an issue when he was allegedly found to have lied to the House Finance Committee about having a $42,000 antique desk and computers, owned by the state, transferred to his home. And also was found to be using state vehicles for his personal use.

Here is more on this via Fox News:

“West Virginia lawmakers, seeking to remove every justice on the state’s four-member Supreme Court amid what they called an “over-the-top” spending scandal, impeached three justices on Monday, including Chief Justice Margaret Workman.

One article of impeachment said Workman and Justice Robin Davis signed documents in their roles as chief justices allowing for senior status judges to be paid higher than allowed wages. Lawmakers say the overpayments violated state law and stopped when they were challenged by the Internal Revenue Service.

Earlier Monday, the Republican-led House of Delegates voted 64-33 to send an impeachment article against Davis to the state Senate for trial. The vote came shortly after lawmakers also impeached indicted Justice Allen Loughry by a vote of 64-33. Loughry’s impeachment vote, which came after approximately two hours of debate, took only seconds, NPR reported.

Fox reported that one justice escaped impeachment, but that has now changed:

“Justice Beth Walker is the only current justice who has not been impeached as of Monday evening.

Walker was cleared late Monday of an impeachment article for spending $131,000 on renovations after taking office last year. She still faces another article that accuses her and the three other justices of abusing their authority by failing to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over critical matters. Some lawmakers said they didn’t condone Walker’s spending but said it paled in comparison to other justices.”

The Charlotte Observer is now reporting that another vote was held & Justice Walker has been impeached also:

“The West Virginia House of Delegates has impeached all four of the state’s Supreme Court justices.

The Republican-led House on Monday night impeached Justice Beth Walker and the other justices for abusing their authority. The article says they failed to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over important matters such as working lunches, the use of state vehicles and office computers at home.

Walker was the last of the four justices to be impeached. She had avoided impeachment earlier when the House voted not to pass an article against her for $131,000 in renovations she made after taking office last year.”

Fox News continues:

“The impeachments do not remove the justices from office. The articles will go to the Senate, which can formally remove the justices only by a two-thirds vote.

The charges were largely related to the justices’ use of state funds to conduct office renovations. Davis spent more than $500,000 on her office and Loughry spent more than $363,000 on his.

Loughry is under federal indictment and named in eight impeachment articles, including allegations he lied about taking home a $42,000 antique desk and a $32,000 suede leather couch.

On Monday, Loughry was impeached under six impeachment articles, including for allegedly driving state vehicles for personal use and of using state-owned computers at his home. He was also impeached for his role in assuring higher pay for senior status judges.

Republican Delegate Tom Fast of Fayette County said he had seen the work done in Davis’ office, including track lighting on the floor. He characterized the renovations as “over-the-top” and said the impeachment article “is one of the more easy ones” for him to support.

However, some legislators said they didn’t support impeaching any justice for wasteful spending, only for articles pertaining to lying, cheating or stealing.

Several lawmakers noted that the Supreme Court has a separate budget and is currently allowed to spend as it sees fit. A proposed constitutional amendment this fall would bring the state courts’ budget partly under legislative control.

But State GOP Delegate John Shott, who helped draw up the impeachment articles, said that if West Virginians do not trust their highest court, “we need to take action to try to rebuild that trust.”

Normally, West Virginia has five Supreme Court justices who are elected to serve a 12-year term. However, Menis E. Ketchum resigned from the state Supreme Court in July after he was accused of alleged federal wire fraud. He pleaded guilty to a felony charge of defrauding the state and faces up to 20 years in prison.”

Justice Robin Davis was also impeached after allegedly using $500,000 for office renovations.

Reports are now also adding that state lawmakers had initially overlooked Chief Justice Margaret Workman’s spending of $111,000 on office renovations. So she was also later impeached for her role in allegedly allowing senior-status judges to receive higher wages than allowed by state law. Davis and Loughry have also been accused of this.

Justice Beth Walker was the final justice whom lawmakers voted to impeach after she was found to be guilty of abusing her authority. This article also counted against the other justices. Lawmakers had previously decided to look past her spending $131,000 on office renovations.

The former Justice Menis Ketchum was reported to have stepped down from the bench last month and pleaded guilty to one count of federal wire fraud.

The West Virginia Governor, Republican Jim Justice will be allowed to appoint new justices to replace those who were impeached. He is not required to appoint justices from the same party as the incumbent as well so let the left wing whining begin.
