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.”

Prominent GOP Attorney Says Jim Jordan Accuser Admitted He Was ‘Hoping’ to Get Money

Published

on

A prominent GOP attorney wrote a long defense of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on her personal Facebook page yesterday, in which she claimed that one of Jordan’s accusers has admitted to making his accusations on false pretenses.

Cleta Mitchell wrote the following:

“My friend Rep Jim Jordan is under attack by some very disreputable sources. To suggest that Rep Jordan would turn a blind eye to any injustice, wrongdoing, immoral or illegal act is absolutely laughable. Anyone who has known and worked with Jim Jordan, as I have, for nearly a decade knows that Rep Jordan never shies from a fight and that he leads the charge whenever there is a hint of something wrong – even to his own political detriment where others prefer that he remain silent, as they do. He never does.

The question I ask is why are these spurious allegations from disreputable sources being fomented against him now? Who is really behind this? It appears to me to be a concerted effort to smear one of the most honorable gentlemen ever to have served in the US House of Representatives. That is what NBC and other news outlets should be investigating…who is behind this? Can it be sources close to those in the Mueller investigation and the Department of Justice who are uncomfortable with Rep Jordan’s relentless pursuit of the truth behind what they have been doing for the past two years? That is much more likely than that these bizarre accusations are based in any facts whatsoever. We know Jim Jordan. We are only now learning about his accusers and there is something smelly about this entire episode. And yesterday, one of Jordan’s accusers admitted that they were “hoping” to get money … that’s a federal crime. Will the FBI arrest them?”

Mitchell did not specify which accuser was hoping to use the scandal for financial gain, but she is a GOP legal insider.

She confirmed her statement for Big League Politics but did not provide further details at this time.
