We are in dangerous economic times. We rarely hear of the $200 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities we find ourselves in. When the dollar finally loses its value, all hell may break loose. Hold on to your guns, unlike many who are turning them in for a few bucks. Should chaos occur, using a broom will not do.

Republicans in control of the House are weak in leadership. House Speaker John Boehner is dragging his feet – and allows too many committee hearings duplicating themselves. Some hearings could drag on for months if not a year. People are screaming for a special prosecutor and we get nothing, so far.

The criminal Attorney General must go ASAP! There are too many crimes to be addressed and we’re supposed to rely on Holder to carry out his constitutional duty? Damn you, Republicans in Congress.


The National Labor Relations Board has problems with authority.” That droll understatement begins a petition filed Thursday with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, highlighting the havoc the Obama labor board’s defiance is causing in the real world.  (It is Democracy in action – the worse form of government)

Cablevision is petitioning the D.C. Circuit to issue a writ of mandamus – a direct court order – prohibiting the NLRB from proceeding with unfair-labor-practice complaints against it and its parent company, CSC Holdings. Cablevision’s rationale is straightforward: The same D.C. Circuit ruled in January that President Obama’s non-recess appointments to the NLRB were illegal. Thus, the board has been operating without a quorum since January 2012.

No matter. A defiant NLRB persists as a law unto itself, no matter how illegitimate its actions are in the wake of that decision. After the Communications Workers of America (Communist controlled) leveled charges of unfair labor practice against Cablevision, two of the labor board’s regional directors snapped to in April with complaints against the company.

Cablevision’s request is also notable for pointing out the substantial business costs of the NLRB’s defiance. In reply to other mandamus petitions filed against it, the labor board has suggested that companies should be required first to complete the entire NLRB administrative process – sitting in front of a judge, then the board itself – before being allowed to ask a court to declare currently illegitimate NLRB’s ruling invalid. This, as Cablevision notes, forces companies to expand “massive resources” litigating in front of a board that two circuit courts have declared void.

Companies are in the absurd position of spending money to litigate claims in front of the NLRB, more money to get a court to deem those NLRB rulings invalid, and then yet more to relitigate them if the NLRB restarts proceedings after it gains a quorum. The NLRB’s crude strategy is obvious: It expects that companies will settle complaints rather than endure the expense and hassle. (Why do I feel this tyranny is done intentionally to destroy the capitalist system?)

As important, Cablevision notes that a writ of mandamus is necessary if the D.C. Circuit wants to send a message that the federal judiciary isn’t to be so easily disobeyed. The Obama board has flippantly argued that it not need follow the D.C. Court’s ruling because the Supreme Court hasn’t weighed in. The NLRB didn’t even bother to ask for (much less obtain) a stay of the D.C. Circuit Court’s ruling. Instead, as Cablevision notes, it “arrogated to itself the power to decide when an Article 111 court’s ruling shall take effect, seeking to shift onto private parties the burden of proving such harm.” (Communism at work, folks)

Though Cablevision isn’t the first to request a writ of mandamus against the illegal NLRB, it appears to be the first to ask for an emergency stay of proceedings until the circuit court can rule. Here’s hoping the court grants that request. It’s well past time for someone to address this NLRB’s problem with judicial authority. (End)

Bureaucrats in positions of power seem to have no clue about constitutional government this is why they behave like they do. “We learn the establishment way,” remember? What we need is for Congress to exercise its impeachment power under the Constitution and start impeaching bureaucrats – not suspending them with pay.

Someone has to pay for Benghazi, IRS tyranny, attack upon our First Amendment, and finally, Fast and Furious. The Executive Branch is responsible but it is the Congress who has failed, and is failing the American people. We have a criminal government.

Quote of the day: “We need to break the chain of corruption between the elite and Congress. How? Demand obedience from the elected to our beloved Constitution – it’s the best answer.” (Tamale Maker)
