President Obama’s union-controlled NLRB isn’t making any friends these days (unless you count union bosses, of course).
Earlier this week, Obama’s labor board filed its lawsuit against Arizona and South Dakota for those states’ voters having the gall to pass amendments favoring the preservation of their right to a secret ballot.
This followed last week’s complaint against Boeing by the union-controlled NLRB where American businesses are learning that having honest discussions with unions about the consequences of their actions is a waste of time.
With good reason, the union-controlled agency has raised a lot of ire from politicians and pundits alike.
On Wednesday, though, the Attorneys General for Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nebraska, Texas and Virginia joined South Carolina’s Attorney General in ratcheting up the rhetoric even more, by co-signing a letter to the NLRB’s prosecutor-in-chief, Lafe Solomon.
While you can see the entire letter below, you get the sense of the tone in the first paragraph [with emphasis]:
As Attorneys General of our respective states, we call upon you, as Acting General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”), to withdraw immediately the complaint numbered 19-CA-32431 against Boeing. This complaint represents an assault upon the constitutional right of free speech, and the ability of our states to create jobs and recruit industry. Your ill-conceived retaliatory action seeks to destroy our citizens’ right to work. It is South Carolina and Boeing today, but will be any of our states, with our right to work guarantees, tomorrow.
Given the NLRB’s blatant preference to give unions the right to threaten employers and employees, it’s highly doubtful that the NLRB will respond to the Attorneys General with anything other than another poke in the eye.

He gave great answers to the ABC News moderators, some of whom spent the night fishing for sound bites that could be used to help the Democrats’ eventual nominee. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES “On abortion, the Democrats are extremists.” Every Republican and conservative in America knows the media’s double standards when it comes to asking hard questions. It was especially evident this week in the difference between the Democrat and Republican debates. And it is the most evident in how the media deal with abortion. Sen. Rubio takes them apart over it. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES What a glum, drab debate. ABC clearly tried to make all the candidates look bad, and the bad blood between the candidates left over from Iowa meant that they just did not care about showing any level of solidarity against the media, as they often do. Christie successfully tore down Marco Rubio for the first hour of the debate, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The New Hampshire debate on ABC was an absolute ****show from start to finish. However, there were a few candidates who came across as ready to lead, and there were candidates who took this debate as merely a placeholder until South Carolina and beyond. The governors on the stage, however, looked like actual grown-ups tonight. Jeb Bush finally wins | Read More »
