Democrats push making labor
organizing a ´civil right´

Washington Examiner, by Sean Higgins

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/30/2014 1:52:14 PM

Reps. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., and John Lewis, D-Ga., plan to introduce legislation Wednesday to amend the National Labor Relations Act to make labor organizing a civil right. The change will make opposing unionization bids legally perilous for businesses. The NLRA already protects the right to form and join a union. Ellison and Lewis´ legislation would dramatically expand the powers individual workers have under the act by allowing them to sue their employer in federal court under the Civil Rights Act. The bill would also entitle workers filing lawsuits "to remedies like punitive and compensatory damages," according to a Tuesday press release. Currently most

Comments:
Not only are these losers certifiably insane, they are unadulterated and pure evil. Thank goodness we have a majority in the House. What an unmitigated disaster this would be if we didn´t. The NLRB is bad enough.

Two stuck-on-stupid members of the Congressional Black Caucus push a bill that has zero chance of passing, but will get them some union $$ campaign contributions.
Can´t someone tell them how stupid and how much of an utter embarrassment they are to Congress and to heir race?

Union organizers should get the exact same treatment received by abortion protesters in MA. If they found once to be threatening, they should be forever banned from organizing at that site. Free speech is a right protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution. There is nothing about union organizing.

How will this affect workers/companies in states with right-to-work laws??
Have any of the states with right-to-work encoded that law as part of their state constitution??

Would the affect be different in states with laws and states with constitutional amendments??
Would that difference cause a 14th amendment conflict??

Inquiring minds want to know!

Obama Skipping His Intel Briefings

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 10/2/2014 12:34:56 PM     Post Reply
As the Islamic State rose to become the terrorist mass that it is today, President Barack Obama ignored warnings and reportedly skipped about half of his presidential daily briefings. He downplayed the threat, calling ISIS “jayvee.” Those briefings that the president reportedly skipped included “specific” intelligence about ISIS and its capabilities even before the 2012 election. At that time, Obama was publicly campaigning on having “decimated” “core al Qaeda” and sent it “on the run.” So was Obama reading his briefings or not? It’s an important question that aims directly at how the president is performing his duties. Obama tossed

A huge majority of House lawmakers have appealed to Secretary of State John Kerry to take note of Iran’s refusal to cooperate with inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency as the P5+1 tries to forge a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic. The letter was led by the leaders of the House Foreign Affairs Committee — chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) and ranking member Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) — and the 352 other signatories included House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.). “As you know, the IAEA has sought

Wednesday at his speech to members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Labor Secretary, Thomas Perez said President Barack Obama will fulfill his promise to use an executive order to grant amnesty for up to 6 million illegal immigrants already living in the United States because he "has someone who has lived overseas, he understands that we are a global universe here in the United States and everywhere."

US Secretary of State John Kerry is reportedly seeking to hold new direct intensive talks between Israel and the Palestinians under the auspices of regional Arab nations. The Times of Israel, citing Israel’s Channel 10, reports that Kerry is calling for negotiations to last two months, and involve Arab countries such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Qatar. As part of the initiative, according to the report, the Obama administration will ask Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to publicly express positive statements about the general intent of the 2002 Saudi Peace Initiative in order to help bring the Arab countries on

An overwhelming majority of likely voters, including a majority of Democrats, believe illegal immigrants from Central America should not be eligible for taxpayer-funded government benefits, according to a new poll. A Rasmussen Reports poll found that 71% "say these illegal newcomers should not be eligible for government services and benefits." Only 16% think "they are entitled to government aid" while 13% are undecided. Even a majority of Democrats (51%) "do not think illegal immigrants should be eligible for government services and benefits" in addition to "91% of Republicans and 75% of unaffiliated voters."

It´s the State Department´s problem. On the same day Republican lawmakers urged President Obama to do something about an American war veteran languishing in a Mexican jail, a White House spokesman indicated it´s not going to happen. "My colleagues at the State Department are very focused on this issue," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at Wednesday´s briefing."And so, I´d refer you to them for their efforts to work with the Mexican government." Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, says he asked Vice President Biden to ask President Obama to call the Mexican president directly

Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that he thinks his brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), wants to be president. "I think he wants to be president, I think he´d be a great president. He understands what it´s like to be president," Bush said in a Fox News interview. "He´s seen his dad, he´s seen his brother. He´s a very thoughtful man and he’s weighing his options." The Bush brothers met in Dallas on Wednesday, and the former president said he was "pushing" his brother to run. "He, of course, was saying ´I haven’t made up my mind,´ and I

It’s been a yearlong courtship, but no one quite knows if it will pay off. For the past year, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has been wooing his longtime friend Jeb Bush to jump into the 2016 presidential race, even as he has shunned potential Tea Party rivals like Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky.Boehner stepped up his lobbying efforts this week, singing the former Florida governor’s praises in a pair of media interviews. The Speaker’s preference for yet another Bush White House run is partly political, partly personal. He sees Bush as undeniably the strongest, most viable candidate

Readied Syria Attack in June

In late June, the U.S. military and the U.S. intelligence community had concluded that a shadowy network of al Qaeda veterans in Syria were planning to attack airliners flying to the United States. Within the American government, the threat was considered serious enough that the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command—the Pentagon’s elite hunter-killers—prepared detailed targeting packages for the group, with the specific locations of the group’s leaders. But those plans never made it to the White House, according to senior U.S. intelligence and Pentagon leaders. “There was sufficient targeting information on these guys in June,” said one senior U.S. intelligence

What does the Republican Party stand for and why should voters support it? These are important and timely questions. And this morning at George Washington University, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus sought to answer them by outlining the GOP´s "Principles for American Renewal." They are as follows: 1. CONSTITUTION: Our constitution should be preserved, valued and honored. 2. ECONOMY: We need to start growing America’s economy instead of Washington’s economy so that working Americans see better wages and more opportunity. 3. BUDGET/DEBT: We need to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, make government more efficient, and leave the next generation with opportunity, not debt. 4.

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

The resignation of Secret Service Director Julia Pierson and the launch of a top-to-bottom review of the agency Wednesday are an acknowledgment by President Obama of what he has long denied: that the force charged with protecting him is in deep turmoil and struggling to fulfill its sacred mission. The 6,700-member agency, long an elite class of skilled professionals who prized their jobs, now suffers from diminished luster and historically high turnover rates. Officers in charge of protecting the White House say they have grown resentful at being belittled by their bosses and routinely forced to work on off-days. Some

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman.

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being
