Decker: Your new book is called “Shadowbosses.” What does that term mean in general and how does it apply to national politics?

Factor: In our own lives, our shadowbosses are the people we really work for, the people who hold us accountable for the decisions we make in our lives. Unfortunately, as I found while writing this book, for many of our political leaders, their shadowbosses are the government-employee union bosses…

After $100k ‘public relations’ payment from teachers union, Media Matters attacked Fox News

The Daily Caller - A document the National Education Association filed with the U.S. Department of Labor in 2011 indicates that the teachers union donated $100,000 to Media Matters For America nearly two years ago, describing it as a payment for “public relations costs.” In the months that followed, Media Matters’ online coverage of teachers unions increased, focusing largely on attacking the Fox News Channel and other media outlets it considers “conservative” in nature.

The $100,000 payment was first documented in “Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind,” a book by Citadel international politics professor Mallory Factor published on August 21.

“[T]o ensure that NEA’s agenda makes its way in the media,” Factor wrote, “NEA has given $100,000 to Media Matters, the George Soros-funded liberal ‘charitable organization’ dedicated to targeting mythical right-wing media bias.” (RELATED – Book: Obamacare law designed to unionize 21 million health care workers)

Why can’t government workers decide if they want a union in their workplace?

By Mallory Factor

Foxnews.com - At their “shadow conference” last week in Philadelphia, union bosses were pushing their new message hard. Collective bargaining is now to be looked at as a fundamental civil right for all Americans. And President Obama, who supports the union agenda pretty much 100%, would undoubtedly express his support for this proposition–if it weren’t an election year and unions weren’t polling so low.

But don’t let union sophistry convince you. Collective bargaining is no “right.” It is a “wrong” that happens to you when your actual right to sell your own labor is taken away from you and given to a private organization—a union.

And collective bargaining is not the only way that unions exercise coercion over America’s workers. Here are just a few examples of how unions are trampling workers’ rights—from my new book on government employee unions, “Shadowbosses,” out this week.

GROWING UNION POWER UNDER OBAMA THREATENS NATIONAL SECURITY, NEW BOOK CLAIMS

TheBlaze.com - Government union leaders are amassing greater power within the federal government under the Obama Administration and their growing influence poses a threat to both national security and deficit reduction efforts, according to the newly released book “Shadowbosses” by Mallory Factor, a professor of International Politics and American Government at The Citadel.

The influence of government unions has grown while President Barack Obama has been in the White House, Factor claims, with some union officials meeting more often with the president and his staff than cabinet officials.
