While you were sleeping, the young president has been slowly implementing his pro labor and anti-oil agenda. No congressional action necessary. As Mike Walsh says three executive branches have been boiled down to one central government head, the White House.
We talked about this extensively on Thursday show, detailing the outrageous power grab on the part of the White House. Mike details right here how the White House is moving to control energy policy and promote organized labor, by passing Congress in becoming the ultimate determiner in all things policy. Wake up my little mobsters your representative government is slowly disappearing. Or do I mean quickly disappearing?
Having lost the House of Representa tives in the last election, the Obama administration is now imposing “fun damental change” via executive order, regulatory fiat and political pressure. Talk about the unitary executive:
* The Environmental Protection Agency has ruled that Shell Oil Co. may not drill for oil this summer in the Arctic Circle off Alaska, where an estimated 27 billion barrels of domestic oil are waiting to be extracted.
Never mind that Shell’s already spent nearly $4 billion on the project,
* The National Labor Relations Board has filed a complaint against a private employer, Boeing, for having the capitalist gall to want to move 30 percent of its Dreamliner jumbo-jet production from highly unionized Washington State to right-to-work South Carolina.
* The NLRB is also suing Arizona and South Dakota over voter-approved state constitutional amendments that would require workers to vote in secret-ballot elections, instead of just signing cards saying they wished to unionize. The “card check” bill couldn’t make it into law even in the old, hyper-Democratic Congress.
There is so much more, so make sure you read the entire article and memorize. But it’s the final paragraph that Mike writes, that’s the real truth teller.
It all boils down to this: Are we to be a constitutional government with three distinct branches, or a single executive entity that makes policy, carries it out and decides for itself whether it’s constitutional or not?
That’s what the next presidential race is really all about.
At a time when gas prices have squeezed home budgets to the breaking point, and at a time when labor unions are doing their best to kill the economy( see General Motors and Chrysler) this president is using executive power to implement a leftist agenda that promotes organized labor, and inhibit oil exploration. It’s counter intuitive unless you understand the man in the White House. It’s all about the ends.
