Obama’s NLRB Gives Unions License To Intimidate & Retaliate Against Witnesses

It’s a strange thing when, in a democracy*, dissent is stifled by those that presume to value dissent.

Notwithstanding the union-backed effort to end Senate filibusters, time and time again, both publicly and behind-the-scenes, Barack Obama and his union cronies and backers work to stifle–even purge and eradicate–any form of dissent if it does not benefit union bosses.

What’s worse is the fact that this trend is becoming the official labor policy of the United States.

 

With an all-Democrat, three-member—two out of the three being union attorneys—National Labor Relations Board now running things without any dissent, workers and their employers in union-free workplaces are being bombarded with decisions that benefit big union bosses.

While this is not new, since unions officially gained control of the NLRB in 2010 with Barack Obama’s unprecedented recess appointment of SEIU and AFL-CIO attorney Craig Becker,  in ruling after ruling, the union-controlled NLRB has been trashing case precedents in favor of pro-union decisions.

In one significant area, and contrary to the purpose of the National Labor Relations Act, Barack Obama’s union-controlled National Labor Relations Board has issued decisions that strip workers of their ability to thwart union intimidation, interference and coercion–as long as it benefits union bosses.

    Interesting. In Whittaker Chambers’ book,”Witness”, he talks about the communists running the NLRB. And that was back in the 40′s.
    Guess everything old is new again.

    “If found guilty, a union trial board has the ability to subject him (or her) to possible fines, and possible expulsion from the union which, in some industries like construction, could lead to job loss as well.”

    Companies might as well close Human resource dept.
    and let the Unions handle the pay, benefits, hiring and firing. Treat it like temp services.

    Hitler co-opted the unions and then turned them over to the Party – they called it the 30 second coup – cause that’s how long it took to seize their assets and replace the leadership.

    The German unions proved to be toothless tigers when the socialists finally moved. I doubt the American unions will prove any hardier – they’re too fat and lazy.

    Tim, please educate me on how the unions are not already on team Communism. It looks to me like our modern Hitler already has them in his pocket and vice versa.

    I see no conflict between them and this administration. On the contray, one protects the other depending on the source of aggravation to each.

    They are an extension of the administration already, are they not?

    BO can’t steal enough from the regular taxpayers, seeing as we’re out on the limb for some $200 Trillion in unfunded liabilities, so, eventually, he will have to steal from them to finance his socialist utopia. They’ll end up working for slave wages, even though they believe, just as the German Unions did, that they’re backing the winning ideology and will share in the spoils. Socialism destroys the will to produce, hence, production fails. As production fails, the gov’t has to rely increasingly on force. Unions don’t exist without corporations. As those corporations fail, the gov’t must develop phony corporations which produce a bunch of nothing (see recent GM) to employ the Unions. This is exhausted after a while and the Unions become a bigger, and more dangerous, burden than the poor.
    Thus, the gov’t will consume them.

    It’s more involved than this, and I’m pretty sure I don’t understand all of it, but there it is in a nutshell.

    “Behemoth” by F. Neumann is an in-depth study of National Socialism’s economics.

    The similarities to Obamanomics are terrifying.

    Has there ever been a bigger scumbag in the White House?
    He and his royal family need every penny then can get from all his devoted followers who voted for him. The middle class union workers are not exempted. The loyal bosses and their emperor get to live the high life by stealing from the lowly peons at the bottom.
