Trump is losing federal court cases at an unprecedented rate due to sloppiness and absence of facts in filings: report

According to a report at the Washington Post, the administration of Donald Trump has a stunning fail rate when it comes  to getting his policies implemented without federal judges smacking them down because they don’t meet minimums of legal reasoning. Reporting on a database compiled by the Institute for Policy Integrity at the New York University School of Law, the Post reports that “the normal ‘win rate’ for administration officials to get new policies implemented …

WATCH: Trump takes another swipe at ‘disgraceful’ John McCain during meeting with Brazil’s president

President Donald Trump on Tuesday continued his attack on the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). During a brief press conference with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, Trump was asked why he was upset with the deceased Republican. “I’m very unhappy that he didn’t repeal and replace ObamaCare, as you know he campaigned on,” Trump said. “Our country would have saved a trillion dollars, and we would have had great health care. He told us hours before …

He’s meeting with a foreign head of state, one that is compatible to him, and he’s still bitching about McCain not voting to repeal Obamacare! Yo, donnie, do us all a favor and die already!

WATCH: Furious Trump supporter begs for a ‘dictator’ to crush Congress

A Trump supporter attending a Steve Bannon-led pro-border wall rally this week wished that President Donald Trump could become a dictator so he could crush Congress and build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. After being called upon by Bannon at the rally, the Trump supporter stood up and ranted about Congress not giving Trump what he wanted to build his wall. “I am so upset that we’ve got so much trash that is supposedly …

There are really people who want a dictator, to crush any and every one who isn’t them. Listen to the sings of danger!

Worker-Friendly Legislation in Congress

The 116th US Congress has in it new legislation that would, if passed-God and the public getting to work willing-benefit working and low-income families. These are:

The Paycheck Fairness Act; this updates and strengthens the Equal Pay Act of 1963 to ensure against gender-based pay inequities. It also prohibits employers from retaliating against workers who speak about their wages-it has happened.

The Raise The Wage Act; this calls for raising the federal minimum wage, from $7.25 an hour to $15.00 an hour by 2024, and phase out unfair exclusions for tipped workers, youth, and people with disabilities. (workers in these minimum wage jobs, in spite of the stereotype of them being kids working after school, are really adults trying to raise families on these merger wages, often two or three such jobs at a time.)

the Healthy Families Act; this bill would guarantee working people the ability to earn up to seven paid sick days a year to recover from short-term illnesses, care for a sick family member, and seek assistance for such things as domestic violence and sexual assault.

The Equality Act; this would add protections for LGBTQ people to existing Civil rights laws, and prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

The Medicare For All Act; this would turn Medicare into a single-payer health care system, like in Canada, ending the starting age of 65 and making it available for all, with no co-pays, premiums, or deductibles. This plan would cover prescription drugs, vision, dental, mental health, substance abuse, and maternal care. This bill would go towards making health care a right and not a luxury for the affluent, and families would not go bankrupt paying for long-term care.

Please contact your member of Congress about this. Public protest and pressure-“heat from the street”-makes a difference.

Workers’ Memorial Day

Workers’ Memorial Day, a day to honor the lives of workers who died on the job trying to make a living for themselves and their families-and a day to advocate for greater occupational health and safety measures-will take place in Philadelphia, at the Sheet Metal workers’ Hall, 1301 South Columbus Blvd., on Friday, April 26, 2019.

This event is sponsored by the Philadelphia Area Project for Occupational Safety and Health (PHILAPOSH) and the Philadelphia Council AFL-CIO.

We will begin with a breakfast and discussion about workers’ health and safety issues. After that, we will have a funeral procession, with Brian Wydlitz on the bagpipes. The procession will end at Penn’s Landing, where we will place flowers into the Delaware as we read the names of workers in the region who were killed on the job. This is a beautiful ceremony honoring someone’s father, friend, son, or brother. Please support the work of defending the right of workers to safe working conditions.
