Progressive Watchdog Media Matters
Employees Finally Get Their Own Union

Daily Caller, by Tristyn Bloom

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/1/2014 2:03:18 PM

Progressive watchdog group Media Matters for America lost the fight to keep its workers from unionizing Monday, the Huffington Post reports. Staff had been agitating moving to unionize since March, with Media Matters executives “fighting it every step of the way,” according to a Service Employees International Union statement. They filed a petition to the National Labor Relations board in April after executives rejected an attempt to unionize through a card check — an open method of unionizing that avoids secret-ballot elections. “The actions of Media Matters executives have placed employees in the impossible position of continuing to produce content

Comments:
What idiots. Why would a tax exempt organization need unions?? What irks the daylights out of me is that this hateful, corrupt group is tax free along with unions. That is a complete and total outrage.

Just curious - what was Media Matters saying during the contest between Scott Walker and the union thugs in Wisconsin in 2011 and 2012? Schadenfreude indeed.

Is this ruling by the same illegally appointed NLRB board? Or do I have the wrong group of Obama appointees.

A lefty group facing up to the fact of its employees trying to organize! Reminds me of the days in the late 50’s and early 60’s when the organizers in the ILGWU (Int’l Ladies’ Garment Workers, now part of UNITE since it has lost so many members). Dave Dubinsky, Int’l President, and his power cabal went ballistic, using spies, firing organizers for organizing, refusing to bargain, making threats, calling them names, etc., you name it, making private industry companies look like choir boys. His favorite rant was to call those seeking to organize, “Trotskyites,” after Leon Trotsky, a Russian communist who made the fatal mistake of challenging Josef Stalin, and getting infamously assassinated for his efforts.

Progressives love unions up until they impact their bottom line. One of the major labor unions was in the news about a year ago when their clerical employees wanted to organize a union to represent them in negotiations with the union. I tried to search for this but couldn´t find it through all the pro-union Barbara Streisand.

Yesterday came word, through a former Pentagon official, that President Obama received detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of ISIS via the President’s Daily Brief for at least a year before the group took large swaths of territory beginning in June 2014. The former official told Fox News that the data was strong, and “granular” in detail. He added that a policy maker “could not come away with any other impression [than] this is getting bad.” Yet in January, at least six months after these warnings began, Obama famously proclaimed ISIS “the jayvee.” And in recent weeks, the administration has

A Democratic senator is planning to introduce legislation authorizing U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria, in a bid to ensure President Obama is not waiting on Congress to escalate the military campaign. When Congress returns next week, Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., says he plans to introduce a bill to "ensure there´s no question that the president has the legal authority he needs to use airstrikes in Syria." Nelson said in a statement: "Let there be no doubt, we must go after ISIS right away because the U.S. is the only one that can put together a coalition to

Two former U.S. senators, Trent Lott and John Breaux, have been hired by a state-controlled Russian bank to lobby against U.S. sanctions put in place because of Russia’s aggression towards Ukraine. A lobbying registration form filed Friday shows that Gazprompank GPB hired the firm Squire Patton Boggs to lobby on issues including “banking laws and regulations including applicable sanctions,” a report from the Center for Public Integrity reads. Gazprombank GPB is a subsidiary of Gazprombank, Russia’s third-largest financial institution. It is controlled by the state-controlled energy company Gazprom. In July, the U.S. Treasury Department slapped Gazprombank and several other large Russian companies with

Republicans are launching an investigation into the cozy relationship between the Environmental Protection Agency and an environmental lobbying group that has allegedly played a major role in crafting recent global warming rules and stymieing an Alaska mining project. Louisiana Sen. David Vitter and California Rep. Darrell Issa sent a letter to the EPA and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) asking for records regarding the environmental group’s role in drafting a rule limiting carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants, and blocking a permit for the Pebble Mine in Alaska. “It appears that NRDC’s unprecedented access to high-level EPA officials

A Texas catering business will pay the United States $26,400 for engaging in “citizenship-discrimination,” as part of a settlement with the Justice Department announced Tuesday. Culinaire International unlawfully discriminated against employees based on their citizenship status, the Justice Department claimed, because it required non-citizen employees to provide extra proof of their right to work in the United States. Culinaire has agreed to pay the United States $20,460 in civil penalties, receive training in anti-discrimination rules of the Immigration and Nationality Act, revise its work eligibility verification process, and create a $40,000 back pay fund for “potential economic victims.” “Employers cannot

In the wake of a media firestorm raging against the Christian owners of a bridal shop who refused to supply wedding dresses for lesbian brides, the town of Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania is debating a possible law on whether shop owners have a right to refuse business to customers. Breitbart News reported last month that when Victoria and Thomas Miller, owners of the W.W.

On his Tuesday show, commentator Glenn Beck made the extraordinary prediction that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be elected president in the 2016 election. According to Beck, that prediction is based upon a conversation a “friend” of his had with so-called “Hillary people” about the strategy she will employ in the 2016 campaign. “They said, ‘The right is so stupid. They just don’t get it. You guys are going to all be fighting on Benghazi and everything else, and here’s what Hillary is going to do: ‘Do you remember when America was good? Do you remember when we

The Sisters Tsarnaev have been nothing but trouble. Double, bubbling trouble. While their Boston Marathon bomber brother Dzhokhar awaits trial this month for the bloody 2012 attacks that killed three and injured hundreds, his elder Chechen immigrant siblings Ailina and Bella remain on the loose in the U.S. after their own frequent run-ins with the law. Last week, Ailina was arrested in Harlem after allegedly threatening "to blow up her live-in lover´s baby mama," as the New York Post reported. Police charged Ailina, 23, with aggravated harassment and released her. Will the legal system learn? Ailina´s time in America sends one clear

Seventeen-year-old Cristian stepped through the swinging wooden door separating the crowded waiting area from the judge’s bench, straightening his slightly-too-big dress shirt as he slid behind the defendant´s desk. As his lawyer took the seat beside him, Cristian slipped on the court-provided headphones so he could hear the Spanish-speaking translator as his lawyer began to speak. After a few pleasantries, Cristian’s lawyer told Immigration Judge John M. Bryant that his client conceded to the charge of being an undocumented alien in the United States and was subject to potential removal. Cristian wanted to plead for asylum for “protection from torture,” and

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS. The U.S. continues to target Islamic State

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

More important: Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power plays while the whole world burns. Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists.

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having
