Verne Strickland Blogmaster / September 16, 2011Ilario addressed the 2nd Annual 9/11 Freedom Rally Sunday afternoon. Unlike the official ceremonies this rally, welcomed all 9/11 first responders and the families of 9/11 victims and featured prayers from clergy members in attendance. The rally focused both on remembering the events of 9/11 as well as remaining ever vigilant in the face of the threats from Islamic terrorists that still confront our nation and our friends around the world.
A large crowd turned out for the event, despite the terrorist threats that were revealed late last week, for what proved to be a very moving and powerful event!

Pantano Calls On McIntyre to Support Congressman Scott's "Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act!"
Call Congressman McIntyre and Tell Him to Vote for this Important Bill!
Our friend, Congressmen Tim Scott, a great Conservative from our neighboring district in South Carolina, has introduced the “Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act” (H.R. 2587). This bill would "prohibit the National Labor Relations Board from ordering any employer to close, relocate, or transfer employment under any circumstance."
As you are probably aware, the Obama appointees on the National Labor Relations Board are attempting to block Boeing from building a new plant in the Right to Work State of South Carolina. This is a clear attempt by the NLRB to dictate to a private business how it may operate and where it may operate. And it’s an obvious ploy by the Obama Administration to pay back the Big Labor leaders for their unwavering support of his campaign and the campaigns of his liberal supporters in Congress. And the NLRB is acting in this manner, despite the fact that the NLRB’s decision could stop the creation of thousands of new jobs.
How this shakes out is very important to the people of North Carolina and the future of our state’s economy. Like South Carolina, North Carolina is a Right to Work state and next time it could be the NLRB trying to stop a business from expanding its operations into North Carolina and creating thousands of jobs here. Ilario strongly supports Congressman Scott’s bill and his efforts to reign in the NLRB.

Unfortunately, our current Congressman, Mike McIntyre, has remained silent on this issue, probably because of the hundreds of thousands of dollars he takes in campaign cash from Big Labor. McIntyre’s vote may be needed to pass this bill, so we would like to urge you to call McIntyre at (202) 225-2731. Please call today!
