Democrat Congressman Creates ‘Dave Portnoy Bill’ To Protect Union Thuggery After Barstool Sports Refuses to Unionize

Published

on

The attacks on Barstool Sports by liberals never seem to end.

After Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy got the Twitter verse chattering when he decided to go toe-to-toe with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over unionization, the sports website founder could now find himself potentially having to fend off civil suits..

Well, that’s if Congressman Josh Harder has his way.

The pro-Big Labor bill, the “Protecting the Right to Organize Act” (PRO ACT),  would effectively repeal right-to-work laws across the nation and penalize workers for not paying union dues, even in the case that the individual refuses to join the union. In essence, this bill gives unions the power to force workers to pay dues or risk getting fired if they refuse to do so.

But Harder’s amendment wants to take it a step further.

Under his amendment, “unfair labor practices” such as threatening to fire employees who support unionization, would be subject to civil penalties.

Harder’s amendment specifically cited Portnoy’s previous threat to fire employees who talked to the media or considered unionizing a month ago.

Portnoy has undergone increased scrutiny since his previous exchange regarding unionization.

In an NBC piece that tied Barstool Sports with toxic masculinity, Marie Hardin, the dean of Penn State’s college of Communications, declared that “Conservative ideology appears to be a core part of Barstool Sports — especially its portrayal of gender roles, with hypermasculine, sports-loving men and hypersexualized, submissive women. The site’s reinforcement of conservative American values is what makes its content stand out from its competitors.”

It’s clear that Barstool Sports is in the politically correct Left’s crosshairs.

The smear work on social media is done, and now the Left is ready to put the legislative clamps on the sports website and its outspoken founder.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
