Now that the elections are over - two stories

| No Comments

I have to say that these are highly convenient timing for the Democrats
#1) - from The Gateway Pundit:

Sen. Josh Hawley Demands Correspondence Between Federal Officials and Dem Party Leaders Following FTX Collapse and Why the Scheme Was Only Revealed AFTER the Midterm Elections
Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) sent a letter to top Biden administration officials Friday morning, demanding information and correspondence regarding the collapse of cryptocurrency exchange FTX.

Hawley wants to know why the illegal scheme was announced AFTER the midterm elections. FTX owner Sam Bankman-Fried was the second largest donor to Democrats in the 2022 midterms behind only George Soros.

Senator Hawley wants communications between Bankman-Fried and AG Merrick Garland, Securities and Exchange (SEC) Commission Chairman Gary Gensler and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Chairman Rostin Behnam.

And #2) - from CNN:

America faces a possible rail strike in two weeks after largest union rejects labor deal
America faces a growing risk of a crippling national freight rail strike in two weeks after rank-and-file members of the nation’s largest rail union, which represents the industry’s conductors, rejected a tentative labor deal with freight railroads, the union announced Monday.

The nation’s second-largest rail union, which represents engineers, ratified its own contract. But the failure of the conductors to ratify their own deal is another setback to efforts to avoid a crippling nationwide rail strike.

With these votes, all 12 rail unions have now completed their ratification process, with members of eight of the unions voting in favor of deals and four voting against it. The four unions that have voted no will remain on the job until at least early next month while negotiations are held to try to avoid a strike that could cause widespread disruptions in the nation’s still struggling supply chain and overall economy.

If a strike goes on for an extended period, it could cause widespread shortages and higher prices for goods including fuel and food. If the four unions that rejected the deals are unable to reach new deals before strike deadlines, Congress could order the railroad workers to remain on the job or return to work.

Remember that in September, Biden went on record as saying that there would be no strike.  That he had been instrumental in negotiating a settlement amenable to all parties.

In reality, he just asked them to lay low for six months. Probably a sweetheart deal in there somewhere.  This is not leadership.  He was not acting in our interest or in the interest of this nation. He was pandering to a group of people.

Are these people really the best and the brightest?
