Barack Obama Tramples U.S. Constitution - #2908 - VIDEO: 'Transparency Behind Closed Doors' (2) NLRB Memo: More in Store for Businesses Like Boeing: Update NLRB Responds - Hot Air (3) VIDEO: Nikki Haley: Obama Administration's Job-Killing Boeing Decision is 'Worst thing for Economy' - The Blaze

Transparency Behind Closed Doors - Hot Air - This video comes courtesy of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which was a little surprised to see a White House aide claim the need for secrecy when it comes to a proposed Executive Order on transparency.

NLRB Memo: More in Store for Businesses Like Boeing: Update - NLRB Responds - Hot Air -The complaint against Boeing might have just been the beginning.

Nikki Haley: Obama Administration's Job-Killing Boeing Decision is 'Worst Thing for Economy - The Blaze - As you may know, the Obama administration’s National Labor Relations Board is trying to tell the Boeing Company how to run its business. To wit, the NLRB is telling Boeing that it cannot open a plant in business-friendly South Carolina. South Carolina is a right-to-work state, meaning that it has “a law against compulsory union membership” — so is the NLRB retaliating on behalf of labor?  It’s the first time a federal agency has intervened to tell an American company where it can and cannot operate a plant within the U.S. It lays the foundation of a regulatory wall with one express purpose: to prevent the direct competition of right-to-work states with union-shop states.  Read more........
