Rajjpuut's Folly: Obama Recess-NLRB Arbiter Pick Favors Worst of Union Slimy Tricks

With five ridiculous strikes for unions against business, President Barak Obama has struck out on economic recovery and already cemented his place in Fool’s Paradise by showing himself the most avid job-killing president in American history. Two December’s ago, while preparing his transition into the oval office, Obama thrilled the radical left and unions by selecting Hilda Solis to head the Labor Department. Solis long noted for her ties to openly communist and socialist organization has certainly not done anything to advance Obama’s claim that he would be the “Jobs’ President.” Communist Party USA’s “People’s Weekly World Newspaper has been gushing about Solis for fifteen consecutive months now.

A year ago Obama’s key labor move was every bit as shocking and, dare Rajjpuut say it, anti-American. If you thought that AmTrack’s problems couldn’t get worse, think again. Obama appointed Joseph Szabo, Illinois State Legislative Director for the United Transportation Union, to be the Federal Railroad Administrator. Another ill-placed union toadie to push for more benefits and reducing the chance that AmTrack will ever show a profit again.

The third strike by Obama was September’s nomination for assistant secretary of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of yet another believer in “junk science” Dr. David Michaels also yet another academic with no real world credentials who has been a one-man wrecking crew opposed to nuclear energy throughout his adult life. and a carrying 100% anti-business agenda as his proud baggage. Rajjpuut would remind Obama and Michaels that more people died at Chappiquiddick than at Three-Mile Island despite the late Senator Teddy’s similar anti-nuke posture. So Michaels is a job-killer and a betrayer of Obama’s promise of “energy independence.”

But the “most unkindest cut of all” as Marc Anthony reminds us, was the sneaky use of the recent Congressional recess to make two god awful labor appointments. Obama appointed two ultra-unionist lawyers (academics and lawyers make up about 87% of Obama’s administration) on to the two vacant seats on the National Labor Relations Board where they’d be expected to rule impartially on disputes between labor and management for the good of the country: Obama’s head weighs 607 pounds, in other words, FAT CHANCE! The two men selected were Mark Pearce and Craig Becker. Here was a chance for the display of Obama’s much-lauded “bi-parisanship” since members of both parties were concerned about the radical Becker holding down anything more significant than his own supper. Big labor is, of course, the owner of Barak Obama and labor officials have spent more time at the White House than anyone but the Obama’s and their dog. I guess that’s what you get for half a billion dollars in campaign donations. Rajjpuut could have sworn Obama said he’d govern for all the people, not just the union members, ah well. Solis and Obama were orgasmic in discussing Becker before the press . . . forgetting for the umpteenth time that the main reason Obama was elected was the Economy, STUPID! You can probably count on Becker alone to cost the country five million more jobs.

The sneaky recess appointment of Becker, who is not qualified to pick his own nose, is a huge travesty. The man is a big advocate of A. card-check B. denier of secret balloting at the work place C. allowing unions to visit workers’ homes uninvited D. union bullying and pressure at work E. Employee Forced Choice Act (EFCA) and even F. EFCA via Presidential administrative action if 60 senate votes are not available. Get the picture? Anything else that kills jobs, Becker is for . . . .

Craig Becker’s nomination is a monstrous threat to our economy because he is an ardent enemy of small business, the engine of recoveries. Becker believes small businesses “should have no right to be heard in either a representation case or an unfair labor practices case” meaning “employers have no standing to assert their employees’ right to fair representation.” Becker’s own words, published in the University of Minnesota Law Review, 1993.

This extreme nominee believes employers should have no “legal standing” in the unionization process of their own workplace. That is the AFL-CIO and the should have a voice in the unionization process and the guy who started the business should not? Then the only viable choice for the entrepreneur faced with a destructive union is to kill his own business and every job in it? Becker certainly has shown himself in the past to be in favor of many anti-job creation practices and policies when he acted through the NLRB bypassing Congressional action to unilaterally attack this country's economy.

Senators Orrin Hatch and John McCain drafted an open letter to President Obama protesting the recess nominations saying, “. . . this action would install a rejected nominee for an appointed term to the NLRB, setting an unfortunate precedent for all future nominations and future administrations.” Everyone of the 41 Republican Senators signed the letter, citing the bipartisan opposition Becker faced in the Senate if a normal nomination had occurred. Rajjpuut agrees with them. Forced Unionization is probably not as bad an idea as putting people out of work and driving food prices up by stopping irrigation in California to protect the Delta Smelt (little fish) . . . not nearly as bad in the short term but the worst offense against the Constitution since Obamacare a week ago – the hits just keep coming from this incompetent president. How exactly are we to win back jobs in competition with Chinese, South Koreans, Thais and Japanese when 83% of our automobile costs are tied up in union pay and benefits, five times more than the metal and other material making the vehicle?
Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,
Rajjpuut

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
