West Virginia wildcat strikers take the day, winning a 5% pay raise not only for themselves but for all state workers. More importantly, their massively popular strike is waking the sleeping giant of militant labor as teachers in Oklahoma, Kentucky, and even Arizona begin discussing and planning for their own state-wide walkouts. Will this signal the beginning of a revolt against austerity and shock doctrine politics?
If the teachers of Appalachia are showing the way to a progressive future, a Florida teacher was attempting to take us backward. Raw Story reports that the Florida teacher ran a white supremacist podcast and openly bragged about indoctrinating her students. Gotta wonder of Betsy DeVos will be weighing in on this one after 2017 CPAC speech claiming teachers and faculty were telling students what to think.
The Trump Organization continues its tailspin with more resignations, criminal charges, and incoherent policy initiatives. Trump signs orders to impose tariffs, leading to some awkward pictures of Trump buddying up to Steelworkers. The GOP barely has time to register its outrage at Trump’s order before senior South Korean officials gave a presser outside the White House, announcing that Trump is ready to have a sit down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions suing California over sanctuary laws, setting off a standoff between Federal Gov’t power and State rights. And, as if on cue, Trump supporters caught on tape threatening to burn down a progressive bookstore in Berkeley. International Women’s Day/Strike sees huge demonstrations and strikes around the world. In Spain alone, millions turn out for International Women’s Strike. And, a columnist in the Washington Post says it’s time to give socialism a try.
This coming week will see if Godly Heritage beats Nancy’s Little Lamb as Rick Saccone is neck in neck with Connor Lamb in Tuesday’s special election for the PA 18th. Does the election say anything about the so-called “Blue Wave” expected in 2018?
Greg Edwards, running for a House seat in Lehigh Valley’s new 7th district picks up a huge endorsement from SEIU’s Statewide Council. Edwards adds that to a growing list of progressive endorsements including Justice Democrats, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Make the Road PA, Women’s March Pennsylvania, Common Defense, Working Families, and The Collective. Edwards is running against a right-wing, anti-immigrant Democrat in the primary. In many ways, the Democratic Primary in the PA-7th will be as much if not more of a bellwether for the future of the Democratic Party in the state as any other race. The SEIU endorsement comes days after the DCCC tried to get Edwards, the only candidate of color, to drop out of the PA 7th race. That would have essentially handed the party’s endorsement to the anti-immigrant Democrat. And Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski finally resigns after being found guilty on 47 of 54 charges tied to 9 pay-to-play corruption schemes.
And what happened to the Bunsis Report? Check out RCPress coverage since 2011.
