Video: Trey Gowdy Shreds White House Big Labor Lawyer’s Talking Points

Last Wednesday, the House Education and the Workforce subcommittee on health, employment, labor and pensions, held a hearing on “The Future of the NLRB: What Noel Canning vs. NLRB Means for Workers, Employers and Unions”.

 The National Right to Work Committee recommends watching the entire hearing, reporting that the hearing room was “the scene of the decimation of Obama’s argument for making unconstitutional National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) appointments and the complete discrediting of  the Big Labor lawyer who was there to shill for the White House and Democrats on the Committee.”

The hearing began with opening statements that illustrated the out-of-control rulings by the Obama’s NLRB.  Raymond LaJeunesse, Vice President and Legal Director of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, provided case after case where the Obama NLRB has overturned decades of precedent to takeaway individual rights in order to give Big Labor legal cover to coerce fees and concessions from workers.


It wasn’t surprising that Big Labor Democrats would choose a labor union lawyer to present the White House talking points to justify his unconstitutional appointments of National Labor Relations Board members. However, when the labor concluded her opening remarks saying that congress having hearing regarding unconstitutional appointments made them shills for the 1%, she lost a lot of credibility.

If she any credibility left after her opening statements, it was soon to be destroyed as were the White House talking points that she was shilling. Elizabeth Reynolds the lawyer from Allison, Slutsky & Kennedy was questioned by South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy. Gowdy was not thrown off by the “1%” smokescreen.

Thanks to Mr. Gowdy’s questioning, we found out that Education & Workforce Committee Democrats provided a witness who claims not to be a constitutional lawyer, yet adamantly said the Obama appointments were constitutional.

When Rep. Gowdy asks the witness what her definition of a “recess” is; Elizabeth Reynolds refused to answer.


Following the hearing,  Chairman David P. Roe, Tennessee Republican, advised businesses not to follow the NLRB rulings until the Supreme Court sorts out the legal dilemma.

“I wouldn’t do anything,” he said. “I’d wait for the court to rule.”

Video: Bill Whittle’s Virtual State of the Union Address Focuses on Gun Control

Bill Whittle continues his series of speeches as “the virtual president” with a no nonsense talk on the Second Amendment.

In this segment of his Virtual State of the Union, the Virtual President talks about why politicians want to talk about gun control rather than crime control, and delivers the factual evidence and historical truths that make the case for the Second Amendment self-evident.

Would that we had a president who revered our founders and respected our Constitution like this excellent virtual president so clearly does.   We can dream, can’t we?


Bob Owens: wants your gun violence stories. I told them about Buchenwald and the desires of the Weather Underground: wants you to share your gun violence story.

There are millions of these stories to tell… at least 262 million murdered by democide in the 20th Century alone. If you aren’t familiar with the term, democide is “the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide and mass murder.”

There are as many ways to kill citizens as there are tyrants with imaginations, but all democides have one thing in common: for them to occur, the victims have to be disarmed first. A properly-armed citizenry cannot be overpowered, and democide has never occurred when the oppressed citizens had the arms to stop the slaughter. Democides have occurred from before written history, and they continue today. And yes, they’ve happened here and almost certainly will again if the citizenry disarms.

I’ve chosen two examples to send in to

It’s hard for an intellectually honest person to disagree with his conclusion:

The earth is littered with the mass graves of those who disarmed “for public safety,” and “for the children” with “common sense” laws and “reasonable restrictions.”

Gun violence can be bad, of that there is no doubt. The violence that occurs when citizens no longer have the arms to counter a federal leviathan, however, is far, far worse.

And as Obama’s apparatchiks gather stories of gun violence for their  anti-gun propaganda, I would remind you that there is no dearth of positive  stories of guns saving lives out there for the pro Second Amendment crowd to highlight.

These two Reddit sites and are a treasure trove of gun defense stories from across the nation. Stories, that are ignored by the national media.

Here’s a story from Feb 17: 2 suspects dead, 1 at large in Prince Edward home invasion:

Two men were killed today during a home invasion in Prince Edward County, according to a press release by Sheriff Wesley W. Reed.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 5000 block of Prince Edward Highway after receiving a 911 call regarding a home invasion. The caller stated that three individuals entered his residence armed with weapons; gunfire was exchanged between the caller and the suspects, police said.

Two of the suspects were shot and pronounced dead at the scene, while the third suspect fled on foot. Police said there is no identification of the third suspect, at this time, other than he is a black male wearing dark clothing.

YAWN: Habitual Liar Obama Caught Lying About White House Sequester (Video)

In the final debate before the election, Mitt Romney went after Obama on his plan to slash military spending; “I will not cut our military budget by a trillion dollars, which is a combination of the budget cuts the president has, as well as the sequestration cuts. That, in my view, is making … our future less certain and less secure,” Romney said, scoring some much needed national security points.

But Obama couldn’t allow that to happen. He couldn’t let Romney look stronger on national defense, so he belched out this whopper: “First of all, the sequester is not something that I’ve proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen. The budget that we are talking about is not reducing our military spending. It is maintaining it.

Via Gateway Pundit:

Greta Van Susteren played a montage of political statements on the Obama sequester. From the video it is clear that the sequester cuts were a product of the White House. It is also clear that Barack Obama continues to get away with a bald-faced lie that the idea was something Congress proposed.

The liberal hacks at Politifact gave Obama a gentle “mostly false” on that one, even though it’s a 100% pants-on-fire lie:

In the debate, Obama said he didn’t propose sequestration, Congress did. (We asked the White House for comment, but didn’t hear back.)

To determine the question of ownership, we turned to Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward’s new book The Price of Politics.

Woodward’s reporting shows clearly that defense sequestration was an idea that came out of Obama’s White House. But the intention was to force Republicans to negotiate, not to actually put the cuts into effect.

Woodward summarizes the thoughts of the Obama team: “There would be no chance the Republicans would want to pull the trigger and allow the sequester to force massive cuts to Defense.” Democrats, meanwhile, didn’t want to see their favorite domestic programs cut.

Awww, Politifact gave it only a “mostly false” because Obama’s intentions were pure: But-but-but—“But the intention was to force Republicans to negotiate, not to actually put the cuts into effect.”

Our heroic President only wanted to force those unreasonable Republicans to come to the table and make a deal, you see.

But the plan was always for Republicans to cave and go along with whatever the White House wanted in order to avoid devastating cuts to the military, while not going through with any of the domestic cuts. The media, of course was expected to help this along by framing the issue in such a way that “Rethuglicans” are seen as intransigent and irresponsible jerks who need to “make a deal” (cave) to the White House. And the fact that the sequestration idea came out of the White House was expected to be swept under the rug by the ObamaMedia lapdogs. That, for the most part, is what’s happening.

Obama’s sequestration lie should have been a contender for Politifact’s “lie of the year”, (although there was stiff competition with the Obama camp’s many other lies), but they opted to make something Mitt Romney said, (which by the way, was 100% true) their “lie” of the year.

It’s so funny how Obama keeps getting away with all these lies, isn’t it? He’s really smoking those hapless dinosaur Republicans who still believe in the old fashion notion of saying what they really mean in their “messaging”.

Here’s the deal. The Democrats will continue to have us over a barrel as long as the left-wing media allows them to shamelessly lie to the American people day after day without vigorously calling them out. Republicans can tinker with their “messaging” all they want – but when we have a media this in the tank for one ideology, we will still lose. Republicans have to find ways to go over their heads.
