Biden Boosts Big Labor In Speech


While stumping for Minnesota Democratic Rep. Rick Nolan, Vice President Joe Biden took time out to promote organized labor.

Biden promoted labor unions as being the reason there is a middle class and attacked conservatives for being out of touch during a speech at Hibbing Community College.

“They don’t understand where we grew up. They don’t understand that the reason we have a middle class in America is because of unions,” Biden said, the Washington, D.C. affiliate of CBS reports.

Nolan is running against Republican Stewart Mills for Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District. Before redistricting, the area was seen as a Democratic stronghold with a prominent farm union presence, according to CBS. Now the race is much closer.

“Get out the vote. We cannot afford to lose this race. It’s important,” Biden declared to the crowd.

Nolan sounded a similar theme: “This election really is going to be decided at the end of the day about who shows up to vote.”

“Make sure that we’ve identified those people who didn’t show up in 2010,” Nolan said. “And all we have to do is get them out to vote, and we will win this election.”

Mills criticized Nolan on Obamacare and gun rights.

“Biden and Nolan see eye to eye on so many issues, but what they don’t get is that those issues are completely out of touch with our Minnesota way of life,” Mills told CBS.

Labor groups have been major contributors for the Nolan campaign. The House Majority PAC, a labor union backed Super PAC has contributed $549,639 alone, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
