What people want to hear are instant solutions: "Joe Biden will be removed by Saturday" or "there will be a new election on March 4th. I would have vastly preferred they moved on that day, and most likely you would have, too. But as we’ve seen over and over again, even though Trump has put every mechanism in place for the United States to defend itself against the communist coup run by the Democrats and their Biden puppet, the timing of events continues to frustrate us all.

NEW: The DC attorney general ’s office has notified Donald Trump Jr. that it would like to interview him as part of its investigation into misuse of President Trump’s inaugural funds, a spokesperson with the office tells at CNN. A viewing platform for the inauguration already has printed signage for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

The pro-business lobbying group sent a letter to Biden on Monday criticizing him for firing Trump appointee Robb and his chief deputy counsel Alice Stock, asking that he reverse the decision, and implying that the decision was due to pressure from labor leaders.

The Chamber and other groups on the letter, including the American Trucking Associations and National Restaurant Association, called Biden's actions "extreme" and requested that Robb be able to complete his term that expires on Nov. 16.

Biden has proposed a .9 trillion relief package, and the group of Republican senators countered with a 8 billion plan.

Is it because the libs are so over joyed that Trump is gone, that their “guard” (what little they have) is down, and the Cabal wants to “program them” for the most extreme parts of their “policy”. In the CBS video you can see tree branches in the middle window, and a pine tree on the right window, then, I went to a virtual tour of the Whitehouse made before Biden ’s presidency and found the EXACT same features. I don’t know what to tell ya but faking trees for the news is beyond what I think any dem is willing to do.

"The removal of an incumbent General Counsel of the NLRB is an extraordinary breach of longstanding precedent that threatens to upend the independence of that office. No president since the establishment of the independent Office of General Counsel to the NLRB in 1947 has ever removed a sitting General Counsel before the end of their term," they wrote.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The letter argues that this action from Biden could politicize enforcement and undermine the credibility of the NLRB. The Biden administration has said that Robb was fired because he was not carrying out the objectives of the NLRB.

The Chamber mentioned that Obama-era NLRB General Counsel Richard Griffin was kept on by President Trump "notwithstanding General Counsel Griffin's consistent pattern of taking positions contrary to the administration's position on various labor law issues."

The Democratic party can't expect to win future elections by simply engaging in the culture war.

An NLRB general counsel hasn't been asked to resign since 1950, when President Truman asked for the resignation of Robert Denham because of an anti-union bill. Denham resigned, meaning Robb was the first general counsel to be fired by a president since the role was created.

"On January 20, 2021, your Inauguration speech emphasized national unity and the importance of all Americans working together. Minutes after you took your Oath of Office, however, you delivered an ultimatum to NLRB General Counsel Peter Robb to resign or be fired by 5:00 p.m. that day," according to the Chamber letter to Biden.

Biden nominated Jennifer Abruzzo, the special counsel to the Communication Workers of America, to serve as NLRB general counsel last month.

Other groups on the letter include the National Grocer Association, Workplace Policy Institute, National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors and HR Policy Association.

Republican lawmakers have also questioned whether any labor leaders exerted pressure to oust Robb, with Sen. Richard Burr (N.C.) and Rep. Virginia Foxx (N.C.) criticizing Biden over the controversial move.
