Obama to Nominate Sharia Supporter, Illegal Immigrant Advocate as Labor Secretary

March 12, 2013 Obama to Nominate Sharia Supporter, Illegal Immigrant Advocate as Labor Secretary By Matthew Vadum

President Obama reportedly intends to nominate in-your-face radical leftist lawyer Thomas Perez as his next Secretary of Labor. Now an assistant attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice, Perez is a former top aide to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and possibly a perjurer.

Perez led the Obama administration's assault on voter ID laws last year. As John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky report in Who's Counting, as a member of the Montgomery County, Md., Council in 2003 he also tried to force governments to accept fraud-prone matricula consular ID cards issued by Mexican consular offices. He was a board member of Casa de Maryland, an advocacy group for illegal aliens funded by George Soros and the recently deceased Hugo Chavez.

Perez is apparently in favor of Saudi-style anti-blasphemy laws. In Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries offenders can be condemned to death merely for insulting Islam.

Amazingly, at a congressional hearing last year, Perez pointedly declined to rule out bringing such laws to the United States. At the July 27, 2012, meeting of the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee on the Constitution, Perez refused to say whether he would uphold the religious speech protections in the First Amendment in the future. "Will you tell us ... that this administration's Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?" Congressman Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) asked four times to no avail.

The Department of Labor is just one of several departments that demand elimination. It serves no useful purpose at all.

Now an assistant attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice

What is a Sharia supporter doing assistant attorney general at the DOJ? Sharia is incompatible with the US Constitution, and it's either one or the other--he can't be protecting and defending both.

The "left" has evolved. The old days of libertine, leave us alone, stay our of our bedrooms, left is gone. They are now just neo-Stalinists.

Look at Colorado. They legalize marijuana in the name of "freedom". Then they outlaw guns. Nevermind the Constitution says nothing about marijuana, but does speak specifically to guns.

Don’t forget - it was reported that the new CIA director is a recent convert to Islam.

OSHA and MSHA are part of the Department of Labor.

And both have many crazy over-reaching rules and enforcer/representatives, but in general do serve a worthwhile purpose.

I have had first hand experience with MSHA. For the most part, the inspectors were professional and fair.
A new inspector visited our coal mine and observed a mechanic who had placed a tool on the roof of a dragline he was working on. We were ticketed for hot having a safety railing around the edge of the roof.

Any MSHA inspector who is professional and fair ain’t been there very long.

Personally I don’t know who would want this job under Obama. You’ll just become the whipping boy for the unions who are still P.O.-ed that he did not ram thru Card Check when he had the House. Hilda Solis got out one step ahead of the pitchforks, methinks.

This was one of a few tickets (fines) that I appealed and got overturned.
My mine supt. and I drove down to McAlester, OK for the hearing.

I informed the hearing officer that I would immediately shut the mine down if I ever saw the “new” MSHA inspector on the property...

Glad I read the article. I was trying to figure out how either Obamalamadingdong or Brennan could hold two positions a once.

MSHA is doing everything in its power, legal or otherwise to shut down coal mining in the US.

I think that's Obammy’s strategy.

Without coal mines and rock quarries, MSHA would be out of business.

We better clean out the illegal alien supporters in our own ranks first!

Cuban born Al Cardenas, head of ACU, along with Grover Norquist run CPAC and are using the tea party label under teaparty.net & TPNN to further THEIR GOALS. THIS is the enemy within!

and http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2995908/posts

Do you think Cardenas & Norquist don’t know that aliens will vote democrat???
