  • Appointment Watch: Becker and Pearce

    The mainstream media continue to ignore President Obama’s appointment of bizarre personnel to run the government. Personnel is policy. That being the case the American people need to know about these appointments. This week we look another couple of Obama appointees. These are not isolated incidents or an occasional bad apple. These folks are representative of the appointments he is making with little or no push back from the Senate during the confirmation process.

    Craig Becker, Nominee to the National Labor Relations Board

    • Becker is a longtime union counsel and activist who has spent considerable time advocating for reduced worker rights and increased union rights.
    • Becker wants to remove the employer from many decisions affecting its employees and only allow unions a say in these decisions.
    • Becker doesn’t believe that workers have a right to say no to a union because, “Just as U.S. citizens cannot opt against having a congressman, workers should not be able to choose against having a union as their monopoly-bargaining agent.”

    Mark Pearce, Nominee to the National Labor Relations Board

    • Pearce has represented corrupt union leaders who sought to keep financial information away from union members. These leaders were later found to have embezzled from the union members.
    • Pearce defended the union leaders’ actions in keeping information private because the members were just on a “fishing expedition.”
    • Pearce describes himself as, “an artist immersed in the practice of law. That kind of sounds like I’m drowning and about to go under, doesn’t’ it?”

    These are just a sample of the people President Obama is placing in positions of power within his Administration. If you want more information on these three and many others, please visit: http://www.getliberty.org/content.asp?pl=187&contentid=187
