NLRB Wants to Stop
Businesses From Moving

Real Clear Policy, by Peter Schaumber

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/8/2014 5:16:58 AM

Richard Griffin, the new general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board, wants to give unions a veto over a unionized employer´s decision to relocate. If Griffin has his way, and he most assuredly will, some unionized businesses will be pinned in place at the discretion of their unions. The change Griffin is contemplating is unnecessary and inconsistent with both the law and the dynamics of our free-enterprise system. It will upset the balance mandated by the Supreme Court and should send a chill up the spine of unionized companies contemplating relocating an operation. Griffin´s intent was disclosed in a memorandum he

In saner times I would say this ruling from the NLRB would never stand a court challenge. Not so anymore.

Okay, so you won´t let me move? All right, effective immediately, Varkdriver Industries is closing its doors.

By sheer coincidence, Vandelay Industries will be opening in a right-to-work state with the same people and products!

And you want to be my latex salesman...

I´ll improve on #3´s suggestion with information told to me by the owner of the company that installed my furnace. His workers decided to de-unionize to help the company stay afloat and put more money in their pockets, too. Not allowed! He had an existing, separate, non-union company so he consolidated his HVAC company into it and hired whoever wanted to work for the non-union company. The union howled, filed lawsuits, howled some more and eventually lost. So the short story is, first set up a small company doing a little business in your new location, then close your union business. He said that second company already in existence was the only thing that saved him (and his workers).

Cosmo Sends A Reporter To Texas
To Declare That Texas Is The Worst
Texas Monthly, by Dan Solomon    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/11/2014 6:09:00 AM     Post Reply
If you´re a media outlet that caters to a New York or California-based audience who consider themselves to possess liberal leanings, there´s an easy way to score points: Just talk about how awful Texas is. This is such a reliable way to get cheers from your audience that last year, The Daily Show literally ran a segment called "F**k You, Texas." The idea of Texas, and its 27 million people, as an easily-stereotyped monolith is a popular one outside of our borders. That´s something that became clear, once again, when Cosmopolitan sent reporter Jill Filipovic down to learn about what´s happening

Well, maybe not stuff it, but finally someone may be standing up to America’s ultra-reactionary, fumbling, paleo-narcissistic and now hugely unpopular president — and his name is Benjamin Netanyahu. If we are to believe the Jerusalem Post, Bibi should be the leader of the free world. Arrivederci, Barry. Take your favorite nine iron and head off to Maui or the Vineyard or wherever you want to be with our blessings — as long as you stay there.

TheDC Uncovers Another VA Backlog:
Months Of Neglected Medical Records

The Memphis VA Medical Center has yet another medical records backlog, The Daily Caller has learned — this one estimated at three to five months long. According to the whistleblower, who provided the photo of this second set of medical records piling up at the Memphis VA Medical Center, the individual responsible for scanning in these records is Carnell Clark, an employee at the facility who is currently busy helping to catch up on a backlog TheDC exposed in June. Sandra Glover, the spokeswoman for the Veteran Integrated Services Network 9, told TheDC the records are for “Intensive Care Unit (ICU) ‘flow

She’s ostensibly not in campaign mode, but a staff of 20 at the outside group Correct the Record is busily working to defend the former secretary of state against right-wing attacks. On a recent sweltering Wednesday in Washington, D.C., when most of the town had cleared out for the upcoming Fourth of July weekend, Adrienne Elrod was at a desk piled high with books—among them both of Hillary Clinton’s memoirs and the 2008 campaign pot-boiler Game Change—emailing with a reporter from BuzzFeed about a small item running later that evening.

Obama: It’s Lonely Doing All The Work
Washington Free Beacon, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/11/2014 5:30:20 AM     Post Reply
[Video] Obama complained Thursday that he’s “lonely” doing all the work in Washington by himself, without Congress. “You know it is lonely, me just doing stuff. I’d love it if the Republicans did stuff too,” he said during his speech in Austin, Texas. “Sometimes I feel like saying to these guys: ‘I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy’,” Obama remarked, quoting Mark Wahlberg’s character in “a great movie called ‘The Departed.’ A little violent for kids.”

A life-or-death fight for Israel
New York Daily News, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/11/2014 5:25:04 AM     Post Reply
The war now raging between Israel and Hamas is a test of Israel’s ability to defend itself, even as it aims to become more Silicon Wadi (Arabic for valley) and less Warrior Nation. Right now, the Jewish state is trying to put down attacks from Gaza through air power, coupled with an array of anti-missile systems designed to knock-down incomings. But the reality is that every missile that hits Israel is a victory for the Palestinians. In asymmetric warfare, dragging the fight out is as good as winning. Although Israel has already carried out more raids than it did in the

‘Dirty Harry’ Reid’s increasing eccentricity
Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/11/2014 5:14:04 AM     Post Reply
Harry Reid is the majority bumpkin of the U.S. Senate, vying with the vice president to say weird, goofy, sometimes amusing and often embarrassing things. His Democratic colleagues typically chuckle, roll their eyes, and put it down to ol’ Harry just being old Harry. (He’s only 78, but in his case, 78 is the new 90.) Long-suffering aides shrug at his bellicose ad-libs and call it “just Harry getting out ahead of his skis.” Nevertheless, when he stands up on the Senate floor, his colleagues hold their breath. No one can predict what’s going to come out of the motorized mouth.

More Than a Smidgen
Weekly Standard, by Stephen F. Hayes    Original Article

The facts are simple. The IRS systematically targeted conservative and Tea Party groups after their activism proved decisive in the 2010 midterm elections—Obama’s famous “shellacking.” The effects of this targeting were widespread. Some Tea Party groups were neutered in the months before the 2012 presidential election. Few of the explanations or justifications of this targeting provided by IRS leaders and Obama administration officials have held up. IRS officials at first denied that any targeting had taken place. That was false. They later claimed that the targeting had involved only low-level employees in the Cincinnati office. That was false. They argued

Obama’s pathetic border

President Barack Obama really wants you to know that Republicans share the blame for the ongoing crisis at the border. In fact, he spent the majority of his address on the border crisis on Wednesday not discussing the border crisis, per se, but the variety of ways in which his administration should not be faulted for this disaster. After noting that he did take the time out of his fundraising schedule for a closed-door meeting with Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a concession of regal magnanimity upon which we must reflect in gratitude, Obama noted that he is at least open to

Why Boehner’s Lawsuit
Against Obama Could Work
Daily Beast, by Ron Christie    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/11/2014 4:52:10 AM     Post Reply
The Speaker’s suit is not some political stunt, and could actually be successful. Since Speaker John Boehner announced his intention late last month to sue President Obama for overstepping his legal authority, his supporters have frequently noted how few executive orders he’s actually handed down. To date, Obama has only issued 182, while the predecessor he likes to blame for everything issued 291. But the real issue, of course, is not the number of executive orders issued during one’s presidency but rather their legality. And it’s here that Boehner and company have a real, substantive case against the president. Obama has issued at

´Israel Under Attack,
Obama Remains Silent´
Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/10/2014 7:35:37 PM     Post Reply
Elliott Abrams, writing for the Council on Foreign Relations: Israel is under attack by the terrorist group Hamas. Hundreds of rockets have fallen on its cities and towns. Millions of Israelis run, and must pull their children, into shelters each day. Prime Minister Netanyahu has discussed this with French president Hollande and with German chancellor Merkel. But not with President Obama, who has not seen fit to call Netanyahu or take a call from him. This is quite amazing behavior for an ally. I am aware as all readers are that the two men have a difficult relationship, but that is no justification.

Obama Refuses to Visit Border;
Claims "Not Interested In Photo Ops"
Townhall, by Kevin Glass    Original Article

In a press conference in Dallas on Wednesday, President Obama responded to critics who noted he was refusing to visit the border in a time of crisis. "This isn´t theater," the President said, before going further and saying "I´m not interested in photo ops." "Not interested in photo ops." Really, President Barack Obama said that. Needless to say, commentators noted the absolute absurdity of that statement - it would be hilarious if the crisis weren´t so serious. A hashtag was spawned on Twitter as people noted the obsession that this White House has seemed to have with photo ops:

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

Rick Perry (R-TX) inviting him to a meeting with President Obama regarding the Texas border crisis was from Valerie Jarrett.

President Obama’s ultimate weakness may be that he believes his own blarney. A year ago, Mr. Obama boasted in a “fireside” Web chat that his “is the most transparent administration in history.” There was not the slightest hint of irony. He may actually believe it. But three-dozen organizations representing newspapermen and other journalists, mostly liberals, beg to differ. In a testy letter to the president on Tuesday, the group decried the “slick non-answers” and cold shoulders they’re getting from Mr. Obama’s representatives, who have restricted access to any information they consider embarrassing to the administration. “The stifling of free expression,” the signers

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.

Kirsten Powers snapped at Bill O’Reilly tonight after he told her she doesn’t know what she’s talking about on immigration, and told O’Reilly she’s tired of him mocking liberals every day on every single issue just because “they care about people.” Powers argued that O’Reilly’s getting his facts wrong and that immigrants coming to the U.S. back in the day (like the Irish) were poor and uneducated, much like the immigrants O’Reilly is so worried about today. O’Reilly dismissed Powers and told her, “You don’t seem to really know what you’re talking about.” That really set Powers off. “I am
