Chuck Schumer spent two years plotting his takedown of Donald Trump.
Schumer and his allies were counting on this secret weapon to destroy the President.
But that all went down in flames after he lost the biggest fight of his life, and now he doesn’t know what to do.
The engine that powers the left-wing political machine is Big Labor’s forced union dues.
Gun control. Abortion. Amnesty. Every liberal cause is powered by the compulsory union dues collected by labor leaders.
Union bosses rip money out of the paychecks of workers and funnel it into the war chests of Democrat politicians and their issue advocacy groups.
This makes government unions the biggest power players in the Democrat Party.
During the 2016 election cycle, unions spent $1.7 billion on political activities.
The overwhelming majority went to support Democrat Party candidates.
Forced union dues were the lifeblood of Chuck Schumer’s plan to flip the Senate to the Democrats in 2020.
But because Donald Trump won the 2016 election, he was the one picking Justice Antonin Scalia’s replacement.
That selection proved vital because in 2016, the Supreme Court deadlocked 4-4 in the Janus v AFSCME case.
Justice Neil Gorsuch then cast the deciding vote when the case was reheard in 2018 and the 5-4 decision held that forcing government workers to pay forced union dues violated their first amendment rights.
The results were stunning.
Breitbart’s John Nolte wrote, “Overall, while these public sector unions still have millions of voluntary members, AFSCME lost 98 percent of its 112,233 nonmembers (now only 2,200 pay agency fees). The SEIU lost 94 percent of its 104,501 nonmembers (now only 5,800 pay).”
This represents a body blow to Big Labor’s schemes to meddle in elections and install puppet politicians – almost always Democrats – up and down the ballot.
This is why Democrats fight right-to-work laws at the state level with bloody, ugly, and sometimes violent, tactics.
In 2011, Democrats in the Wisconsin legislature hid out in neighboring Illinois so as to deny Governor Scott Walker a quorum to pass a state level right to work law for public employees.
The gambit eventually failed and Walker and the state Republican Party brought workplace freedom to a significant number of state workers.
The Janus case provided this option at the federal level.
The battle for the Senate in 2020 is shaping up to be razor thin.
Schumer and the Democrats think they can win seats in Iowa, Colorado and North Carolina which would level the Senate to a 50-50 tie.
If the Democrats win the White House, then the new Vice President would cast the tie breaking vote on legislation and nomination in the Democrats favor.
Any setback the Democrats face could close off this narrow path back to a Senator majority.
And there isn’t a bigger setback Democrats could face than public sector union members exercising their First Amendment right by not paying forced union dues and sapping Big Labor’s treasure chest.
