The Amnesty Debacle

In recent days, President Obama has threatened that he will utilize an Executive Order to pass immigration reform and, in so doing, provide amnesty to thousands of illegal immigrants (see Obama to Announce Immigration Executive Actions Friday). This ploy, which is done for no other purpose than to secure votes for the Democratic Party, is in fact an illegal amnesty and violates the U.S. Constitution and separation of powers (see Amnesty Designed to Help Democrats Win Elections at the Expense of the American People and An Illegal Amnesty).

Unfortunately, the Republican Party is not devoid of guilt in this matter as seen in The Senate Immigration Law Hurts All Americans. It appears neither side understands this is not truly not a debate about politics or social justice, but rather a debacle for legal American citizens. The two sides are playing a game of chess to court the vote of the Hispanic community. In the meantime, they are encouraging illegal action, such as the use of undocumented workers by businesses (see Push to Protect Farm Workers). This is done solely for the purpose of winning future elections, and is done at the expense of the legal American worker and companies who do business with integrity! — And where are the American labor unions now, when they could utilize their organizing abilities and political influence to actually protect their membership and do what is right for America? If either side truly cared and had a backbone, they would come together to close the southern border to protect the American people from terrorists as described in Ebola Strategy Revealed, protect American jobs and reduce the immense strain on Federal, State and Local budgets.

President Obama has made the statement in interviews that no one with a criminal background should be allowed to vote and that illegal immigration hurts workers (see Obama Says Illegal Immigration HURTS ‘Blue-Collar Americans,’ STRAINS Welfare). Apparently, he has conveniently forgotten that people who have crossed the border illegally are criminals that depress American wages. By that reasoning, these persons should have no right to vote and should not be taking American jobs and depressing wages. It is the typical “do as I say, not as I do” hypocrisy that has been used by the President throughout his time in office to support his positions. In Right to Vote Hypocrisy, I discussed that signing up illegal citizens to vote in state and federal elections is perfectly fine in the eyes of the President and big labor bosses, but it is unfair to allow employees of businesses to vote for union representation in a secret ballot election.

Politics aside, the most immediate problem is the fact that Open Borders are Costing American Jobs and Depressing Wages. The continued Misclassification of Workers by companies who refuse to obey our laws and prey upon undocumented workers creates an Under Ground Economy that results in stagnant economic growth, high unemployment (or high under-employment in the form of more part time jobs rather than full time jobs), and a reduction in wage growth. Stories are rampant across the country about companies who do business legitimately and with integrity that are losing business to companies who hire illegals and pay them under the table. This creates The Shadow Economy that an honest business can only compete against by reducing wages, hours and benefits. This situation is accentuated by Obamacare (see Buyers Remorse Over Obamacare) and its high costs which force businesses to move towards part-time employees in order to remain competitive.

It is time for all Americans to wake up and demand that politicians on both sides of the aisle stand up to President Obama’s Rule by Fiat mentality. It is time to realize the hypocritical stance this President takes in his endeavor to fulfill his agenda of converting America to socialism. It is apparent from the current state of the American economy, high budget deficits, high welfare/entitlement rolls, high unemployment/under employment, nationalized education and the cornerstone of control – nationalized healthcare, that the President’s O-Cloward-Piven Strategy Is Working. The Republican Party, with its new majority, must begin Vetting Obama’s Political Tactics and realize He Is What He Despises. It is time they understand Most Voters Still Veto Obama’s Immigration Plan, and go on the offensive to defeat the President’s amnesty debacle and incorporate the strategies embodied in Restoring America’s Prosperity!

Reprise: Buyer’s Remorse over Obamacare?

In last year’s blog, The Devil is in the Details: Buyer’s Remorse over Obamacare, Except for SEIU, Big Labor’s dissatisfaction with Obamacare was exposed. The exception being the SEIU, who was allowed to be the architect of the Affordable Care Act as repayment for its role in the President’s 2008 Election. There has been little written about labor union’s dissatisfaction with Obamacare. Big Labor’s Gasping Dinosaurs, however, have not been vocal or shown visible support of Obamacare, especially during this time when the President has proclaimed the program’s success. This success has been attributed to 8 million people having signed up — despite the fact approximately 6 million people lost their private health care and that same 8 million is no where close to the 30 million uninsured Obamacare was supposed to cover.

It now appears many of the Big Labor bosses are experiencing buyer’s remorse! As Obamacare becomes a reality, many of the unions are demanding government subsidies to remain competitive at a time when membership is at a historical low. Only 11.3% of the total workforce and 6.3% of the private sector work force are unionized. Apparently most Big Labor bosses forgot the basic fundamental premise “Caveat Empetor” – meaning “let the buyer beware” – when supporting the President’s re-election campaign and backing his signature law, Obamacare (see Some Unions Grow Wary of Health Law They Backed). Evidently those astute business people bought in to Nancy Pelosi’s famous quote, “We must pass the bill so we can find out what’s in it!” Well, that is true for most Big Labor bosses, except for those at the SEIU.

seiu-obamacare

Recently big labor bosses have received a new wake up call, as those collective bargaining contracts signed before Obamacare was put into law are now expiring, and they are facing a new hurdle of deciding whether to negotiate increased health care costs due to Obamacare mandates such as dependent children must be kept on their parents health insurance until age 26 as well as increased future costs for premium plans and other mandates as chronicled in Unions, employers square off over ObamaCare costs, or to continue to press for employee wage increases as they have traditionally done. Unions, including the SEIU, representing housekeepers, transit workers, flight attendants and more are waking up to the fact that their buddy in the White House steamrolled them, just as he has in his support of climate change and rejection of the keystone pipeline (as chronicled in Obama and NLRB Continue to Cost Union Jobs).

Ironically, the SEIU was the President’s major supporter for the Democratic Presidential Nomination in 2008. In fact, Andy Stern, then President of the SEIU, made it very clear that the SEIU would not support any candidate that would not make universal health care its primary objective during the first term of office. Then Presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama, leapt on board, knowing full well he not only needed the financial support of the largest union in the country, but also its vaunted ground game! Although his campaign was supported by the other unions, all of which also supported universal health care, the devil was in the details. When the SEIU saw an opportunity, they took it.

The difference between the SEIU and the other major players now wary of Obamacare, unions such as the Teamsters, AFL-CIO, Unite Here, The Sheet Metal Workers International, International Union of Operating Engineers and others, is that the SEIU represents a majority of unionized workers in the U.S. health care industry! The SEIU not only represents nurses, orderlies and other medical personnel at healthcare facilities, but also other important and necessary support positions at these facilities such as janitors, security personnel and food service workers. Additionally, the SEIU represents home health care workers and health insurance employees in many states (see Is Obamacare Redistributing Wealth to Big Labor?).

Universal health care was envisioned as a veritable jackpot by the SEIU as the positions mentioned previously would expand exponentially with the projected 30 million new Americans on health care, and to date, are looking at a net increase of approximately 2 million. This would have served as a means to substantially increase the SEIU’s membership and subsequent revenues from dues in a relatively short period of time. What a let down for the SEIU! Of course that bonanza also meant increased political donations and ground game foot soldiers for the President and the Democratic Party. Everyone thought the President was only pushing for Obamacare because he believed in “social justice” and cared about the millions of people who supposedly had no access to health care, but as many of the Big Labor bosses are now realizing, the “narcissist-in-chief” only cares about one person, himself!

Incidentally, it is common knowledge that very rarely were people turned down care at emergency facilities and that Medicaid was already available for those in need, obviously one of the major reasons Medicaid was insolvent. Don’t misunderstand; it is important that affordable health care be available to all Americans who wish to be covered. However, available coverage for all could have been achieved through allowing freedom of choice, and not a mandate. As for affordability, we could have accomplished this feat by removing barriers to the free market, utilizing ideas to eliminate restrictions on competition across state lines, developing legislation for tort reform and producing meaningful modifications to the immigration laws. Unfortunately, this common sense style approach does not work for the President, liberal democrats or unions like the SEIU, who all depend upon each other for survival. America can only hope the uninformed electorate wakes up before the 2014 Mid Term Elections to see that the President and his liberal supporters will run over their own supporters (i.e. union members) and will continue to run over the American people until they achieve their ultimate goal of totalitarianism.

Don’t be surprised if the President and his Administration don’t reverse field in an attempt to find a way to placate the currently disenfranchised big labor bosses before the 2014 Mid Term Elections, where maintaining a majority in the Senate is imperative to both the Administration and the big labor bosses. After all, it is vital that they keep the circular money pump in motion in order to stay in power and avoid extinction, no matter the expense to the American people, including rank and file union members. Maybe Americans will begin to feel a similar sense of buyer’s remorse and wake up to the fact this President, with his eloquent prose, will promise people what they want to obtain their vote and the next minute run over them with a steamroller. He and his major supporters like the SEIU have no ethics or integrity and only care about their socialistic agenda and ultimate survival. America, before you go to the polls this November remember, “Caveat Empetor!”

SEIU’s Hair on Fire?

Despite continuing actions by the SEIU to press forced unionization through their “hair on fire” approach, statistics recently released show continuing stagnant membership for labor unions (see Labor Union Membership Rate Stays Steady in 2013). For employees across the country this means the SEIU will continue the pressure through their “persuasion of power” (see Desperate SEIU Resurrects The Persuasion of Power). Over the past three decades, the SEIU and its big labor brethren have continued to see membership roles drop, and this has continued to be true in recent years as the economy continues to sour and employees become more informed and resistant to what unions have to offer. The fact that they had a year that showed no decline is hardly a breath of fresh air when big labor is continuing to deal with declining revenues, and the fact they desperately need to curry political favors to advance forced unionism, thereby increasing membership roles and corresponding dues. Make no mistake about it that membership growth and member dues are big labor’s priority, as it is all about the big labor lifestyle and political power membership dues fund!

As a result of the lack of union membership growth, the country continues to experience this Persuasion of Power from the nation’s largest and most radical union (see Communism at the Highest Levels). The SEIU’s Insidious Tentacles continue to spread across this great country into every nook and cranny as it seeks to avoid extinction and promote its socialist/communistic agenda with support from the “Puppet” in the White House. In 2012, the SEIU used its members’ union dues and foot soldiers to elect David Bowen to the Milwaukee County Board. Now they have  “assisted” him in writing a minimum wage proposal that would, according to independent accounting sources, cost the county over $27 million dollars, lose out on an estimated $34.5 million in land sales and $11 million in new tax revenue, and cost more than 8,700 new jobs (see Union-influenced minimum wage law in Wisconsin could squash thousands of jobs and Union helps write living wage ordinance that could cost taxpayers millions). Of course, this is all presented in typical SEIU misinformation fashion as providing people with a “living wage,” when the truth is the bill contains.

The proposal, however, offers contracting firms an exemption from the wage hike, but only if their workers are covered by a collective bargaining agreement between the employer and a bona fide labor union like the SEIU. Obviously this is no more than a corrupt ploy to recapture revenues that have declined significantly over the last several years. According to IRS tax documents, the Milwaukee SEIU reported revenue of $1,878,513 in 2010, $938,478 in 2011 and $780,923 in 2012. This represents a 60 percent loss in annual revenue in just two years.  Clearly, the union has reached a point of desperation. Remember, “desperate people do desperate things” regardless  of the consequences.

In Illinois, the SEIU  has been attempting to force unionize Home Health Care Workers regardless of whether they are interested in the union or not. The law allows the SEIU to organize family members and owners of home health care organizations based on the premise that the people providing care receive reimbursement through Medicaid or Medicare. As they are government-funded programs, the persons are subject to unionization based on President Kennedy’s 1963 Executive Order allowing public employees to be unionized. It is common sense that the government should not be forcing workers into unions.  A current case before the U.S. Supreme Court will  test this theory (see Supreme Court to hear case on forced unionization and Supreme Court ‘sleeper’ case on union dues has big impact on organized labor).

SEIU EMail

Finally, with numerous incidents of fraud and embezzlement coming to light, the past month hasn’t been great for the Service Employees. One would think that after SEIU Local 6434 President Tyrone Freeman was just put away for three years, the sticky fingers in the organization would keep their hands in their own pockets…at least for a while. On the contrary, just two months after Freeman’s sentencing, former Local 721 Treasurer Cedric Hughes was indicted for five counts of wire fraud and a count of embezzlement. When questioned about the missing $15,194, Hughes claimed nearly all financial records for the Local’s UUP Chase Account had gone missing. Hughes is the third SEIU official to be charged with embezzling during 2013, proving that an atmosphere of complacency toward corruption is a common thread among SEIU locals.

In other unscrupulous activity, SEIU-UHW’s Myriam Escamilla was caught conducting secret negotiations with an employer, then signing a full contract without even talking to the workers of the facility. Upon being caught, workers forced Escamilla to put the contract to a ballot that was unanimously voted down. Afterward, they decertified SEIU-UHW as their union and joined the National Union of Healthcare Workers. This makes the second time in a month that SEIU-UHW members bailed on their union and voted in the rival NUHW.

Additionally, in California, SEIU is using social media to raise funds for a mural honoring the union, and their claim to have “helped over 200,000 low wage workers, through its “Justice for Janitors” campaign achieve better social and economic standing by campaigning for better wages and healthcare. Conveniently ignoring the fact the SEIU lost, California, SEIU is using social media to raise funds for a mural honoring the union, and their claim to have “helped over 200,000 low wage workers achieve better social and economic standing by campaigning for better wages and healthcare.” Well-known artist Andre Miripolsky is the face of the project, placing a request to raise the $60,000 needed on a “support-an-artist” website service.

These new initiatives and scandals, attacks against Wal-Mart and fast food companies in its “Fight for Fifteen,” combined with the President’s SOTUS agenda, which focused on immigration reform, minimum wage, income inequality and unemployment benefits, conveniently provide the SEIU fodder for increased forced unionization of employees. This only accentuates that America is facing a new year, but the Same Old SEIU and Same Tired Attacks!

Common Core, It’s All About Control

Like Obamacare, Common Core is another government debacle, being pressed by far the far left as legislation that, in Nancy Pelosi’s vernacular, “needs to be passed so we can learn what is in it.” Once supported by leading teacher’s unions, such as the National Education Association (NEA), American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), many union officials are now questioning its merits. They are also concerned, among other things, of another Obamacare “train wreck” rollout, (see We’re Flying the Common Core Airplane as We’re Building It and Union Joins Opposition to Common Core National Standards and Tests), as well as its merit as an education model. Despite early union support, it appears some union members are beginning to wake up and realize that Common Core may not be what they bargained for, specifically after the Obama Administration had the Department of Education (DOE) publish the draft of this new program.

Titled Promoting Grit, Tenacity and Perseverance, the DOE’s draft, in fact, promotes just the opposite! The program promotes control rather than individuality and achievement.,. In this case, instead of controlling our health, it is intended to brainwash the minds of future generations to continue down the “progressive” path. In essence, they want to make us all sheep – easy to herd and easy to control! This is further expressed in Common Core Uses SEIU Protest to Teach 3rd Graders about ‘Rights and Responsibilities’, where SEIU tactics were taught to young elementary students. It is astonishing to see the lengths this Administration and its union buddies, especially the SEIU, will stoop to try and bring down capitalism and impose it’s  socialistic and communist viewpoints (see Communism at the Highest Levels).

Common Core promotes neither grit, nor tenacity, nor perseverance, but rather compliance and subservience. A friend’s quote is on point regarding Common Core:

“Grit, tenacity, and perseverance’ were things I thought were developed in the home, in church or on the playing field and often translated into the class room or board room.  The thought of institutionalizing the concept, while well intended, strikes me as quite a challenge.  Kind of like a government trying to instill morality and ethics into a society while mocking God as having anything to say on the subject.”

Additionally, there is much speculation about whether the Common Core standards do anything to advance the modern student.  See the Common Core Standards’ Devastating Impact on Literary Study and Analytical Thinking; Is Common Core Leaving Students Unprepared in Math and Science?; Doubts about Common Core ; video of an Arkansas Mom Destroying Common Core.

The preceding press on the subject, along with the questions by teachers’ union leadership, are strong arguments for states to reject Common Core and the federal money the Obama Administration has dangled in front of them to embrace these standards. However, there is something even more persuasive that should be acknowledged . . . the loss of something through Common Core which made this nation great – promoting self determination, self reliance and self esteem… none of which are taught within Common Core (see Common Core Indoctrination: “The People Must Obey The Government’s Commands”).

Obituary of Common Sense

It is Us vs Them and time for all Americans to come together, whether liberal, conservative, union, non-union, regardless of ethnic or religious background. We must join forces to reject this Administration’s agenda of control in time to reverse the The Decline of American Exceptionalism. America needs a resurgence of common sense, not the tyranny of Common Core!

Divide and Conquer

As the new year 2014 begins with the President and Congress returning to Washington, it is evident that President Obama and his liberal cronies are determined to continue to divide the nation. Shortly before returning from his 17-day vacation in Hawaii, the President began the divisive rhetoric by reprimanding House Republicans for going on a “holiday break” and not staying in Washington D.C. to pass a measure to extend unemployment benefits for needy Americans. The benefits were allowed to lapse, as they were not included in the budget  signed by the President prior to his vacation.

Now, Congress prepares for a battle over jobless benefits. The first vote by the U.S. Senate was to restore the expired unemployment benefits. The President and his fellow Democrats allowed the benefits to expire and agreed to the budget as part of their plan to distract the American people.The President understands just how important the upcoming 2014 mid-term Elections are, and is attempting to deflect the miserable failure that is Obamacare. This is merely their opening salvo in a desperate attempt to “divide and conquer” the Republican Party and the American people. The President clearly understands that Democrats must hold the Senate and take back the House of Representatives during the mid-term elections if he is going to successfully impose his socialistic agenda.

Additionally, as President Obama Urges Steps to Resolve Income Inequality, the Democrats are planning a minimum-wage push to create a “National Living Wage,” supported by his allies at the SEIU. See Obama and The SEIU, Sittin’ in a Tree. Much like the tactics of his mentors in big labor, the President will not explain the byproducts of such action – the loss of jobs and a weaker economy, which Thomas Sowell addresses eloquently in his article,  No compassion in minimum wage laws. Common sense dictates that an Unprecedented Minimum-Wage Hike Would Hurt Jobs and the Economy. Even the democratic D.C. Mayor Vetoed the ‘Living Wage’ Bill (see also 5 Ways the Liberal Obsession With Income Inequality Hurts the Poor and Dems Believe Income Inequality To Be the Winning Issue In November).

Crook

Furthermore, in the background, the President  has quietly had his radical appointees at the National Labor Relations Board (see “Rogue NLRB”), the Department of Labor (DOL), and OSHA imposing new regulations such as allowing “microunions”, requiring reporting by employer-supporting “persuaders” (see DOL Changes the Rules Again), and allowing union access to employer facilities during OSHA inspections (see OSHA Opens New Door For Big Labor). These new regulations are all aimed to provide Big Labor the opportunity to process their Death by a Thousand Cuts-style Corporate Campaigns, with the end goal of forcing businesses to sign a Neutrality Agreement  and impose Card Check.

If this is accomplished, unions would be able to force unionize people quickly and collect badly needed dues for the flagging unions. In turn, these unions will continue to provide Democrats with political contributions and the ground game necessary to win the mid-term election. Make no mistake about it, big labor needs help and it is evident that they are Becoming Desperate. The UAW needs income so badly it is considering a 25% dues increase for its current members, which seems strange when their membership continues to diminish.

As discussed in Obamacare Provides Unfair Advantage to Big Labor, the President unilaterally postponed the “transitional insurance” fee for 2014, which eliminated millions of dollars in costs for the unions so they can pour the money back into the 2014 mid-term elections. The timing on all of this makes sense, as big labor has a vested interest in seeing Democrats win back both Houses and essentially providing the President Rule by Fiat, while trying to avoid extinction with support from their political friends.

Like big labor, the President, and Democratic Party too, are feeling pressure to achieve victory in the mid-term elections, and they are intent on utilizing “the ends justify the means” tactics from the big labor playbook (see The Devil at Our Doorstep). Just like the SEIU big labor bosses who trained him, President Obama will trample on anyone who gets in his way. It is time for the American people to wake up to the Obama’s hypocrisy, misdirection and misinformation. His promises, much like big labor’s, have been designed to sway voters, not help the people!

The Republican Party must reorganize and understand that fighting amongst themselves is inappropriate and counterproductive (see Boehner Blasts Conservatives). If the GOP Pins Its Hopes on Midterm Elections, it must band together with all conservatives and people of all religious and ethnic backgrounds to expose and Keep The Pressure On Obama. Just as I discussed with the Republican Whip committee last March, it is Time for Republicans to Go On the Offensive! The Other Guy Sucks is Not a Strategy, so it is imperative that all conservatives expose the President and the fact he has no interest in the citizens of this great country and like the big labor bosses is only focused on accomplishing his agenda. Collectively, we must put the Administration on the defensive if we are going to succeed in nullifying this “divide and conquer” strategy, and reverse The Decline of American Exceptionalism, initiated by the President and his big labor buddies!

Obamacare Provides Unfair Advantage to Big Labor

Virtually unnoticed and ignored by the media is the fact that big labor benefited tremendously from the deal struck last week to avoid the “catastrophic” fiscal cliff. The President abandoned his own concept of fairness, which of course is nothing more than a hypocritical one way street, in order to reward his big labor buddies and to ease the pressure they have asserted. As discussed in Promises, Promises: Desperate Unions Grow Weary of Phony Distractions, the President clearly understood the displeasure of big labor with respect to Obamacare, and realized that he desperately needed to throw them a bone, and a big one at that!

seiu21-620x362

In his own inimitable way, the President did so at the expense of  roughly 89% of the workers across this great country who are not members of unions. With this gift,  President Obama’s Ego Continues to Trample American Freedoms as he places the burden of the cost of Obamacare on the everyday working person and on small business. Additionally, it provides big labor with the money to continue to inflict Death by a Thousand Cuts and Corporate Campaign tactics on businesses. This is all part of the plan concocted by big labor and the Obama Administration to force unionize employees, as discussed in The Devil at Our Doorstep, and to continue to control political agendas with excessive political donations and massive ground games. It also provides big labor with an unfair advantage to attract potential members with misleading information during collective bargaining negotiations.

Surprise! Unions Get Their Way on Obamacare… In the deal the President struck with Republicans, unions were made exempt from paying what is referred to as a “Transitional Reinsurance Fee,” a $63 tax assessed on nearly every health insurance plan enrollee for the next three years. The Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) established programs to provide payments to health insurance issuers that cover higher-risk populations and to more evenly spread the financial risk carried by issuers. These programs, which will be effective in 2014, include the Transitional Reinsurance Program.

The Transitional Reinsurance Program is intended to help stabilize premiums for coverage in the individual market during the first three years of the exchange operation (2014 through 2016) when individuals with higher-cost medical needs gain insurance coverage. This program will impose a fee on health insurance issuers and self-insured group health plans. ACA requires health insurance issuers and third-party administrators (TPA’s) of self-insured group health plans to pay fees to support the reinsurance program. The proposed regulations clarify that, for self-insured group health plans, the plan sponsor is liable for paying the reinsurance fees. In essence, unions and businesses both would have had to pay the fee under the program, but unions have now been given an exemption, providing them with huge cost savings.

The fee is based on the number of members actually enrolled in the medical plan, such membership consisting of employees, their spouses and dependent children covered by the medical plan. As an example, the SEIU, with approximately 2 million members, can expect to save BIG! Assuming that 60% of the membership is enrolled in a union-sponsored health plan, you would have 1.2 million members, plus their eligible family members, estimated at an additional 2.5 covered persons (per member), making the SEIU’s total membership eligible for the reinsurance tax roughly 3 million. Multiply that 3 million, by the $63 per member reinsurance fee, and the initial benefit seen by the SEIU is in the neighborhood of $189 million! Spread that over three years, assuming that the President extends it after next year’s midterm elections, and the total cost savings to the SEIU is $567 million!

It doesn’t seem fair that a President who preaches on the redistribution of wealth to the poor and middle class is, in fact, redistributing $567 million to this labor union — An organization which has historically been shown to utilize that money to force unionize hard-working Americans, and to press its socialistic political agenda at the expense of the middle class the President pretends to support. President Obama, who understands the basic tenant of Control Business, Control the Country, is fully behind the push to provide big labor with ultimate power over employees and businesses, after all it was big labor who enabled him to win a second term. It is time for America to wake up and understand this President abhors the free market system and is determined to destroy it, utilizing the influence of the SEIU and other big labor bosses to push Communism at the Highest Levels. He just provided a huge favor to the big labor Gasping Dinosaurs, helping them achieve their agenda. The Taking of American Freedoms is at hand!

President Obama’s Ego Continues to Trample American Freedoms

The current budget/debt ceiling debate has nothing to do with the merits of Obamacare, but rather is a result of the President’s narcissistic ego, his political gamesmanship and socialistic agenda. It has nothing to do with what is right for the American people. Even the President’s most ardent supporters, Big Labor’s Gasping Dinosaurs, who blindly followed their “fearless” leader with their support of Obamacare, now realize The President Only Cares about his Own Ego and Agenda. They have awakened to the fact that he will trample anyone and anything that gets in the way of his idealism and his agenda. It is time for Americans to stop listening to the President’s hollow political rhetoric and awaken to the fact this President will trample on our freedoms to enact Obamacare.

Unfortunately, his strategy, based on the teachings of radicals Cloward and Piven, has been successful as Americans blind themselves to his true motivations.  See “His O-Cloward-Piven Strategy Is Working.” The final cornerstone to destroying American capitalism and replacing it with socialism, as chronicled in Christians Thrown to Modern Day Lions, is close at hand. He will run over anyone, friend or foe, who might be bold enough to get in his way.  This is seen in his current stance on the national budget and looming debt ceiling to preserve Obamacare and the intended deleterious effects it will have on this great nation.

Ironically, the Big Labor bosses — and more specifically the SEIU — have taught the President the same Death by a Thousand Cuts tactics he is now using against Americans, including the Big Labor bosses, their union members, supportive religious organizations, liberals and anyone else who dares to stand in his way.

In the first week of the government shutdown The Administration Sent Out Government Workers to actively shut down outdoor memorials, such as the World II Memorial in Washington D.C., as well as to Shutdown Private Businesses.  They Threatened to Arrest Catholic Priests in the Military for Celebrating Mass, Incited Federal Employees to Target American Conservatives, encouraged Fake Government Shutdown Protests by the SEIU, and then the President tells Republicans ‘If You’re Being Disrespected, It’s Because of That Attitude You’ve Got’! This must be our official Welcome to the Harry and Barry Shutdown Show!

The plain and simple truth to this outrageous behavior is that we have a President who is a failure as a CEO and needs to be fired! The CEO of a business, in most cases, has a board or an executive staff that he or she utilizes to discuss and negotiate objectives, budgets, and long term goals to assure not only the survival, but the growth and prosperity of the company, its investors, employees, customers, vendors and public at large. If the CEO doesn’t follow a path of engagement, co-operation and concession during negotiations he will ultimately fail and be fired or the company will become bankrupt and cease to exist!  There is no room for an egotistical “my way or the highway” approach to assuring a company’s long-term survival. However, much like Big Labor who trained him,  the President believes he can bully Congress, trample the Constitution, and impose his agenda on the American people. (See Obama and The SEIU, Sittin’ in a Tree  and What Obama and Big Labor Bosses have in Common). How has that type strategy worked out for the Big Labor bosses who now face an all-time membership low of 11.3% of the workforce? It hasn’t, just as the President’s approach will not work for America!

Nevertheless, the President continues to threaten all Americans with the potential “default” of America if the debt ceiling is not raised so he can continue his socialistic and totalitarian agenda! In his recent column, Foster Friess, posts the truth – that a default is not going to occur and that discussion is nothing more than political rhetoric and scare tactics.

It’s impossible to default on the debt—-years down the road, maybe 

“Average monthly interest costs are $18 billion….. we take in on average $225 billion. By law, the president must pay interest first before anything else.

In addition to interest we must roll over the $550 billion of maturing debt each month. Newly issued bonds replace maturing bonds with no net change in total debt outstanding. If the Chinese and other investors won’t purchase them, Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke will just buy them for the Fed’s account.”

The President,  during his term as a U.S. Senator, has himself acknowledged the foolishness of raising the debt ceiling, when he made the following statement:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

– Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

So why isn’t the President honest and say that the government wouldn’t be able to pay all of its bills rather than the over-dramatic nonsense that we will default on our debt?  Simply because it is all about him, his narcissistic ego, and his agenda of ultimate control, which is outrageously demonstrated by the fact Obamacare requires all Americans to purchase health care or pay a fine! If this president really cared about all Americans, which is his job, he would gather the troops together and work out a deal to move America forward on a sound financial footing that would energize the economy and create needed jobs. The President’s actions, however, demonstrate that he does not care about all Americans or America! It is time for all Americans, including liberals, conservatives, independents, Big Labor bosses, unions, businesses , CEO’s, employees, employers and all other persuasions to collectively join together and eliminate the biggest threat to individuals the nation has ever faced, The Taking of American Freedoms.  The American free market system works the best for all people, not socialism and its associated intimidation and coercion tactics. When Will Congress and the Main Stream Media Wake Up and realize that the President’s stance and the current showdown is not about the merits of Obamacare, it is merely a  means to an end, which is ultimate control!  America Needs an Effective Leader, Not a Politician! We need our members of Congress and the mainstream media to work together collectively to impeach this President who would destroy America, much as a bad CEO would destroy a thriving business, to achieve their agendas.  America, we are at War! Armageddon is at Hand! Please Wake up!
