Obama trying to pack National Labor Relations Board with illegal union boss croniesmadgroup

Barack Obama’s efforts to illegally pack the nation’s labor regulatory board with union boss cronies have been struck down yet again by a federal court.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Obama’s former acting general counsel for the National Labor Relations Board, who served from 2011 through 2013, had been serving in violation of the law governing federal appointments.

The ruling could overturn decisions made by Lafe Solomon, the illegal Obama nominee.

This is not the first time a federal court has ruled Obama broke the law with a scheme to illegally rig NRLB votes.

In 2014 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in NLRB v. Noel Canning that three of Obama’s appointments to the Board were illegal.  Obama declared the three Board members were recess appointments, but they were made while Congress was in session.

The Supreme Court’s decision voided an entire year’s worth of agency decisions.

During his now-illegal service, Solomon ruled Boeing violated the NLRA (National Labor Relations Act) “by deciding to transfer [from Puget Sound, Washington] a second production line to a non-union facility in South Carolina for discriminatory reasons.”

Labor unions, which spent millions on the Obama campaign, had demanded he issue the ruling.  They demanded Boeing be forced to operate a facility in Washington state, despite the fact there was no demand for it.

It is unknown if the Boeing ruling will be overturned.

Solomon was terminated from the Board and a new appointment made as a result of a deal between the White House and Senate Republicans over Obama appointments.

The case went even further, seeking to invalidate decisions made by Solomon.

Solomon has more problems than just his illegal appointment.

Inside Counsel reports that in 2012 “NLRB Inspector General David Berry released a report in which he accused Solomon, who has been the board’s acting GC since June 2010, of participating in a case in which he had a financial stake.”

“The case involved the social media policy of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., in which Solomon owned more than $15,000 in stock. According to the report, the NLRB’s ethics rules bar NLRB employees from participating ‘substantially’ in matters in which they have financial interests,” Inside Counsel reports.

“The report says Solomon disclosed his Wal-Mart stake to the NLRB’s deputy general counsel in early January and acknowledged that he would need a waiver in order to participate in the Wal-Mart social media case. Solomon attended a meeting about the case before seeking a waiver. The waiver was denied,” Inside Counsel reports.

Just another day in the unethical Obama administration.
