Hillary to Speak at Teachers Union Convention Amid Rumors of 2020 Presidential Run

Published

on

First reported by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton is slated to speak at the annual union conference in Pittsburgh this weekend.

“Thousands of educators from across the country will be joined by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren this weekend as they converge on Pittsburgh for the biennial convention of the American Federation of Teachers,” the paper wrote.
Clinton will  speak on Friday, while Sanders and Warren will speak Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
The AFT, which represents 1.7 million teachers, endorsed Clinton in 2016.
There has been a great deal of whispering about whether Clinton will run for president for the third time in 2020. Both Clintons were spotted on a commercial flight over the weekend.

The New York Post speculated:

“Hillary Clinton is up to something.

Five times in the last month alone, she sent emails touting her super PAC’s role in combating President Trump. Most seized on headline events, such as the family separation issue at the southern border.

Under the message line, “horrific,” she wrote June 18: “This is a moral and humanitarian crisis. Everyone of us who has ever held a child in their arms, and every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged.” She said she warned about Trump’s immigration policies during the 2016 campaign.

Three days later, she was back again, saying that her group, Onward Together, raised $1 million and would split it among organizations working to change border policy, including the American Civil Liberties Union and a gaggle of immigrant, refugee, Latino and women’s groups.”

New York Post Passage Ends. 

The AFT convention is being held just two weeks after a huge blow to teachers unions nationwide. The Supreme Court held that public sector unions could no longer compel members to join and pay dues. The ruling is a huge blow to Democrats, as unions, which are often giant campaign contributors, will lose funding without compelled dues.
The event could be an opportunity for Clinton to pitch ideas for restoring lost power to the unions, thereby helping the Democrat party.
“We are at this solemn and scary inflection point in our country where there are really troubling trends and amazing activism at the same time,” AFT President Randi Weingarten said. “It is really surreal.”

Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex

Well this isn’t a good look.

John Weaver, political consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, has been accused of being a sexual predator who targeted young men.

Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.

Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.

Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”

@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”

News of the impending allegations was also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.

The longest Twitter thread on the accusations came from journalist Scott Stedman, who started a Twitter thread that begins as follows: “I don’t want to feed into Don Jr’s nonsense but I do want to tell a story. I followed John Weaver when I started my Twitter account. We exchanged messages, I sent him my stories, chatted about Russia, etc. He wrote a blurb for my book. He offered me some sort of “joint venture” which I wasn’t interested in, so I didn’t respond to his calls.”

Stedman continues: “One day, he DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable.”

What he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power,” Stedman said.

And there could be much more where that came from…

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.
