James Clyburn (D-SC), does the name sound familiar? Maybe this photo of the Congressman will jog your memory.
When the House of Representatives was being re-organized following the 2010 elections, Mr. Clyburn pressured House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to name him as House Democrat Whip, the second highest ranking office in the Democrat House hierarchy. Unfortunately, Ms. Pelosi had promised the position to political veteran Steny Hoyer (D-MD). Not wishing to be considered racially insensitive, Ms. Pelosi created a new position for Congressman Clyburn, that of Assistant Minority Leader. Thus making him the third highest ranking House Democrat. He was happy with that.
So where am I going with all this?
Well, you will recall that last weekend I predicted that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), under the leadership of Obama appointee Mark Gaston Pearce — the only voting member of the NLRB board since all others were found to have been appointed illegally — would declare the VW Chattanooga plant workers rejection of UAW unionization to have been illegal. I still stand by that prediction.
The news this weekend is that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced their plan to enter every TV, radio, and newspaper office in the country to determine if the philosophy of those managing the news broadcasts is proper, and if the Administration’s Critical Information Needs (CINs) are being met it’s just a coincidence, I’m sure, but it is said that the instigator of this action by the FCC is Commission Board Member Mignon Clyburn.
Clyburn? Hmmm. Not a very familiar name. Or is it? Yes, you guessed it. She is the daughter of the Assistant Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, the Honorable James E. Clyburn. Imagine that.
Lest you think there may be some ulterior motive working in there somewhere, it’s probably just their way of celebrating Black History Month.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
