Tom Perez: What You Need To Know About the Most Radical Cabinet Nominee

Today, President Obama issues a challenge to Republican Senators: in nominating Tom Perez as Labor secretary, he implies that Senate Republicans don’t have either the guts or organizational skill to stop what would become perhaps the most radical left-wing cabinet member in history.

Whether the president is right about GOP senators remains to be seen.

As they say, I wrote the book on Tom Perez. My New York Times bestseller Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department is largely a catalog of the rancid racialism over which Perez has presided.

The New Black Panther case is one small part. But so are the eighth-grade transvestite lawsuits in New York, and so are the race quotas in New York City. PJ Media has been covering Perez in a way that no other outlet has for the last three years: his wars on peaceful Catholic pro-life protesters, his dishonesty under oath, and his overruling of career DOJ lawyers in the South Carolina Voter ID case are but three more from a long list of radical transgressions.

Make no mistake — that’s why Obama appointed him.

Obama knows power is fleeting. You have a short amount of time to affect a large amount of change. He knows Perez is an unapologetic leftist from the Hugo Chavez-wing of the Democrat Party. (Not an exaggeration: Chavez once had Citgo make a payment to Perez’s illegal alien advocacy group Casa de Maryland.)…

How Tom Perez traded Treasury money to protect a pet race discrimination theory

The Committee on Oversight and Reform is investigating the latest scandal involving Tom Perez, who is reported to be President Obama’s choice for Secretary of Labor. Committee Chairaman Darrel Issa has confronted the Department of Justice (where Perez now serves as Assistant Attorney General) with charges that Perez arranged a quid pro quo for the City of St. Paul, Minnesota to drop the Supreme Court case of Magner v. Gallagher.

In exchange for dropping its case, the U.S. agreed not to intervene in an unrelated False Claims Act case that had the potential to return over $180 million in damages to the U.S. treasury. Senate Judiciary Ranking Member Chuck Grassley, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, and House Oversight Financial Services Subcommittee Chairman Patrick McHenry join with Issa in pressing the charge of quid pro quo.

Why did Perez and others in the Justice Department want the City of St. Paul to drop its appeal in Magner v. Gallagher?…

Obama’s Perverse Appointment of Tom Perez to Head the Department of Labor

There are many good reasons to oppose Perez’s nomination, but perhaps the most fundamental is that Perez stands in opposition to the founding purpose of the Department of Labor. The legislation authorizing the Labor Department says:

The purpose of the Department of Labor shall be to foster, promote, and develop the welfare of the wage earners of the United States, to improve their working conditions, and to advance their opportunities for profitable employment.

Yet Tom Perez is committed to immigration policies that will damage the welfare of working Americans and set back their opportunities for profitable employment. Senator Jeff Sessions said it well in a press release this morning:

This is an unfortunate and needlessly divisive nomination. The top priority of the Secretary of Labor should be to create jobs and higher wages for American workers. But Mr. Perez has aggressively sought ways to allow the hiring of more illegal workers. …

His views on illegal immigration are far outside the mainstream….
