Great News: The Obama NLRB Refuses to Comply With House Subpoena

What does it mean when the Executive branch of government -- in this case, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) -- refuses to comply with a lawful subpoena?

Helpful Hint: Can you say "Constitutional Crisis"?

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) [said] on Friday that the National Labor Relations Board had refused to comply with a subpoena the committee issued on Sunday. The subpoena asked for documents related to the NLRB’s action against Boeing, and requested they be sent by today at noon.

“The National Labor Relations Board and Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon have thus far failed to comply with a lawful subpoena,” Issa said in a statement Friday afternoon. “This refusal by NLRB to abide by the law further heightens concerns that this is a rogue agency acting improperly. The integrity of NLRB and its leadership is clearly in question...”

The public has a right to know the truth about why a government agency would choose to take action to benefit organized labor that threatens thousands of non-union jobs in South Carolina while setting a precedent impacting manufacturers across the country.

It is imperative that Congress get complete facts about NLRB’s decision-making process in this matter. Its continued refusal to fully cooperate will not deter this Committee as it moves forward in efforts to determine what occurred and to hold NLRB officials to account.

Needless to say, this incident can be added to President Obama's Complete List of Historic Firsts.

And a word of warning for the Marxist Left: lawlessness begets lawlessness.

One power Congress does not use that THEY should. Power of the purse! Zero out the money and shut down all of many un- constitutional agencies now.
