The Supreme Court Of The United States of America has just handed down an enormous victory for the freedom and sanctity of more than 5 million American workers, and a devastating blow to the liberal-backed labor unions who demand “mandatory dues” from the workers they're supposed to represent, by ending the process.
Since the 1977 ruling of Abood v. Detroit Board of Education, the Supreme Court has allowed “collective bargaining” to be financed by public sector Unions demanding “mandatory dues” for their members.
Unions and those who join them are essentially not going to be able to throw around cash in a mafia-style attack on up-and-coming politicians anymore, and the workers across the nation will no longer be forced to fork out a large chunk of their hard-earned paychecks for these unnecessary dues.
Oftentimes, young apprentices to skilled trades are unable to find high paying jobs without the unions, making it a system quite similar to extortion. In fact, many Unions have been connected directly to racketeering crimes of the mafia over the last several decades.
This victory is great for Republicans and Trump supporters.
“This is the biggest victory for workers’ rights in a generation,” said Jacob Huebert, an attorney for the plaintiff. “The First Amendment guarantees each of us, as individuals, the right to choose which groups we will and won’t support with our money. Today the Supreme Court recognized that no one should be forced to give up that right just to be allowed to work in government.”
“Compelling individuals to mouth support for views they find objectionable violates that cardinal constitutional command, and in most contexts, any such effort would be universally condemned,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the majority opinion today.
The unions, for decades, have been one of the highest paying donors to the Democratic Party, with billions of dollars in payments that help fund radical leftist politicians to destroy America's Constitution.

During the 2016 elections, the AFL-CIO union federation contributed $14.6 million dollars to super PACs. The National Education Association has donated $18.1 million dollars and spent an additional $1.4 million dollars. The Service Employees International Union donated $19 million dollars.
Overall, labor unions during the 2016 election cycle donated more than $132 million dollars to super PACs and spent an additional $35 million dollars on federal elections, which is the highest in recorded history.

<span style="margin-top:15px;rgba(42,51,6,0.7);font-size:12px;">Donations for 2018 elections. All donations are up-to-date as of June 11th, 2018. Credit:<a href="https://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/list.php"> FEC donations via Open Secrets.</a></span>
The leading donor for the Democratic Party in 2018 is the billionaire Tom Steyer’s NextGen Climate Action supported Farhr LLC., with a whopping $29,387,407 so far this year to Democrats. They donate zero to the Republican Party.
There's also Paloma Partners, who have donated $14,336,600 to the Democrats, backed by billionaire Selwyn Donald Sussman. Sussman is an American financier and philanthropist. He's also the founder and Chief Investment Officer of the Paloma Funds.
Everyone knows the name George Soros, who ranks sixth overall in donations to Democrat per 2016 from Soros Fund Management, who have spent $10,323,632 in 2018 alone. $10,456,896 of that goes to Democrats. Here's the shocker: $23,100 goes to Republican RINOs.
In comparison, the<a href="https://www.politico.com/story/2018/03/19/republican-megadonor-uihlein-470268"> single-largest GOP mega-donor </a>comes from Uline Inc., with billionaire-backers of the GOP Richard Uihlein financing many Conservatives at $26,139,425. While it's no doubt a large amount of money, it's nothing compared to the countless liberal financiers, and the labor unions which lean a 95% majority-Democrat across the board.
Republicans also have the Koch Brothers, which liberals often love to mention, but their donations are tiny in comparison to the funding of unions and billionaire globalists who back the Democrats. The total donations to the GOP from Koch Industries is a tiny $6,426,564.
However, when you configure the various labor unions, you see much more going to Democrats than the billionaire-backers of liberal ideological perspectives.
The Carpenters & Joiners Union has donated $15,319,000 alone to the Democrats, making them the second-most prolific donor to the left of all, with other unions to the Democratic Party being as follows:
1) Carpenters & Joiners Union has donated $15,319,000
2) Laborers Union has donated $11,150,016
3) American Federation of Teachers has donated $7,869,555
4) Operating Engineers Union has donated $4,895,834
5) American Federation of State/Cnty/Munic Employees has donated $5,194,687
6) International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers has donated $4,725,103
7) United Food & Commercial Workers Union has donated $3,268,293
8) American Federation of Government Employees has donated $2,924,868
9) National Air Traffic Controllers Association has donated $1,853,250
10) Communications Workers of America has donated $2,508,056
11) Air Line Pilots Association has donated $1,713,352
The clear-cut implications of the Supreme Court ruling today will send shockwaves to the Democratic Party, who are currently receiving hundreds of millions of dollars a year from the Labor Unions per their forced, “mandatory dues” process.
Losing this funding could reshape the way elections in the future are won for decades to come.
Thank you to the Supreme Court Of The United States of America for this monumental and groundbreaking victory for workers across the nation, and for the President of the United States of America and his supporters.
