Wisconsin, Labor Law, the Federal Courts, and the Constitution


“Date: Jun 21, 2011 12:00 PM”

“First the good news.

Last week, the Wisconsin Supreme Court upheld Governor Scott Walker’s government-sector monopoly bargaining reform bill from one spurious legal attack.

The very next day, union lawyers filed a new lawsuit in federal court seeking to overturn the bill, which protects the Right to Work for most government employees.

As you’ll read below, the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly rejected the very arguments made by union lawyers in Wisconsin in cases won by National Right to Work Foundation attorneys.”

“Big Labor is desperate to protect its forced-dues powers, and it’s vital Governor Walker does not back down now.

Please, sign your Declaration of Support for Governor Scott Walker today.

“Declaration of Support for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker

As a concerned citizen outraged by Big Labor’s forced-dues power and stranglehold over state and local budgets, I would like to thank you for standing up to the union bosses and bringing the Right to Work for most Wisconsin government workers.

Your reform bill passed, but as you know, the fight is not over. That’s why I urge you to:

1) PROTECT the new Wisconsin public-sector Right to Work law and stand strong as Big Labor goes all-out to restore its forced-dues privileges over Wisconsin’s state and local government workers.

2) ENFORCE the bans on forced-dues and automatic paycheck deduction for most public employees.

3) PROSECUTE lawbreakers and vandals who flouted the law and common decency to protect the union bosses’ power.

Peaceful events like citizen rallies are hallmarks of our republic, but violent threats against pro-worker freedom politicians, damage to public property, doctors faking sick notes for absentee teachers—these are unacceptable!

4) DEFEND the reforms of government-sector monopoly bargaining from spurious legal assaults by union lawyers.

No matter what the union czars claim, freedom of association does not entitle them to steamroll over taxpayers with outrageous budget demands.

In November, the American people sent a clear message to elected officials. Your government-sector monopoly bargaining reforms suggest that you got the message.

Please, do not back down.”

“Dear Patriot,

It is imperative for New Hampshire to override its liberal Governor’s veto on critical ‘Right-To-Work’ legislation that ends compulsory union dues in the public sector. Union corruption has become an endless cycle, and the best way to target their radical liberal activism is to deny them the government mandate that allows them to compel employees to pay for activism that they do not support!

Our sources inside of the New Hampshire legislature say the important legislation hinges on a handful of wavering representatives who are considering caving in to union intimidation. They have assured us that with our help they can deliver yet another blow to union corruption!

The ad is being produced today and to go up on the air THIS WEEK! We are buying the airtime knowing that our loyal supporters will once again be there for us as we push back against union corruption. We still need to raise $8,000 to fund this effort, and you can help by making a generous contribution---HERE---

The Western Representation PAC is proud to be leading the way against the union intimidation that has bankrupted states across the country. Your generous contribution of $25, $50, $100, or even $500 give us the resources to lead the way on union reform from Wisconsin to New Hampshire. Fight back by making your contribution---HERE--

Sign Our Petition

WHEREAS, Public Employee Unions require union dues to be paid by its members;

WHEREAS, Public Employee Unions use these union dues to influence legislative, gubernatorial and congressional elections;

WHEREAS, Public Employee Unions, in turn, negotiate with elected officials for greater salaries, benefits, and special treatment at great expense to taxpayers;

WHEREAS, federal, state, and municipal budgets are strained by these contracts with Public Employee Unions;

NOW THEREFORE, do we, the undersigned, call on elected officials to STAND UP in the face of union intimidation and leftist thugs in order to restore fiscal sanity. We stand with the courageous leaders who will make the tough decisions necessary to limit state spending and the size and scope of government. And we call on the state and federal Departments of Justice and Attorneys General to investigate all death threats, vandalism, and other acts of intimidation by, and on behalf of, Public Employee Unions.”

In the case of Wisconsin, the left has already lost in the Wisconsin Supreme Court. (See my June 16, 2011 post.) Now, they have turned their efforts to remove a Constitutionally passed law to the federal courts. And as always seems to be the case, they are Unconstitutionally taking the case to a lower inferior federal court contrary to the Constitution of the United States. This violates the Constitution but it also often achieves two of the left’s objectives. Even if the law suit is eventually not successful, it costs the State money and time to fight to protect their newly passed, Constitutionally passed law. Second, it often delays the enforcement of the newly passed, Constitutionally passed law as the inferior federal court issues an Unconstitutional injunction against the State not to enforce the law. Both of these maneuvers would be greatly hindered if the Constitution of the United States was actually obeyed by the particular inferior federal court.

For as I’ve said repeatedly, NO inferior federal court judge has jurisdiction over a State. NONE! The Constitution of the United States of America clearly states in Article III, Section 2, ¶ 2: “In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction.” Who has jurisdiction when a State is a party to the case? The United States Supreme Court!!! And only the United States Supreme Court until and unless the Constitution is amended!!! An inferior federal court has no such jurisdiction! The inferior federal courts in the United States have NO jurisdiction over States! NONE!!!

Just as Christians restore the church by returning to the Bible and being obedient to the will of GOD as given in the Bible, so will we the people restore the nation by returning to the Constitution as written by the founding fathers and as Amended by we the people through our representatives. However, don’t be deceived. To save the moral decay of this nation both MUST occur.

It’s time, it is past time to OBEY THE CONSTITUTION!!!
It’s time, it is past time to OBEY THE CONSTITUTION!!!
It’s time, it is past time to OBEY THE CONSTITUTION!!!

It’s time, it is past time to TAKE BACK THE NATION!!!
