MNPCA Update: Who is Chris Serres? Reporter or Union Activist?

Recently, a Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter named Chris Serres wrote a sympathetic article about a new SEIU union for home-based personal care attendants (PCAs):  “Minnesota's home care workers demand action on staff shortages, low wages: Two years after a contentious battle to form a union, they are starting contract negotiations” We thought the article felt more like a press release for the SEIU’s press conference last week.

Liberals Try to Censor Movie Critical of Hillary Clinton

Dinesh D'Souza has made a documentary titled Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party. The film is critical of Mrs. Clinton, as you might imagine, and also recounts the pro-slavery, pro-segregation history of the Democratic Party. Understandably, liberals aren't happy with the movie, and some have tried to shut it down. In Florida, a Democratic Party official tried to persuade a movie theater not to show Hillary's America on the ground that it "portrays his party’s presidential nominee in a negative light" and could cause violence against Democrats. If you think that is laughable, you are right. It is...
