New Obama Adviser Jeff Immelt’s Agenda: “Big Government and Big Business”

Posted by iusbvision on January 25, 2011

This is neo-corporatist corruption in its Chicago style glory.

GE, which owned NBC and MSNBC, benefited with its relationship with the Democratic Leadership. GE has also had other ethical problems which are pointed out in the video. Of course noth NBC and MSNBC abandoned serious news reporting long ago and chose a path of highly biased and unfair reporting on one side, to nightly lies and character assassination on the other.

This leads us to another opportunity to remind you all of Norton’s First Law:

Big business loves big government, which is why big business loves domestic taxes and regulation because it keeps the small and medium sized competition out of the competition. It also causes inflation, so ultimately it is you who pays and the poor who are hardest hit. (Big business often gets loopholes written in the laws for themselves such as Nancy Pelosi trying to get a part of the tuna industry exempted from the minimum wage law).

Former Obama Advisor Van Jones: ‘Communism’ definition of social justice.

Posted by iusbvision on January 25, 2011

Via the Blaze:

While speaking at an event this month, Van Jones was asked to define social justice. He did that by explaining that true social justice is achieved when everyone’s lives are essentially the same. As the video’s creator pointed out, that’s communism.

Cong. Debbie Schultz: We need to continue to deficit spend like crazy so we can compete with China….

Posted by iusbvision on January 25, 2011

This is the new spin, if we don’t spend like mad and continue to grow government and debt we wont be competitive…

The left puts Cong. Schultz out there because she has a cute and innocent smile and seems harmless so hopefully those big bad Republican meanies won’t blast her outrageous dishonesty and risk looking bad on TV. Do not be fooled. Schultz uses Alinsky style propaganda techniques and lies with the best of them. I have seen her roll out a dozen half-truths in a 15 second statement. You know how the old saying goes that you know a politician is lying because his lips are moving; Debbie Schultz is the poster child of that stereotype. In the video she repeats the lie that repealing ObamaCare will increase the deficit when Obama’s own Medicare Actuary numbers show the opposite. As a last resort she pulls out the “Children with cancer card”. Gimme a break…

By all means Debbie, burden us with outrageous levels of deficit spending which is now 10 times higher than what it was in 2007 because it has to be done for the children. Have you had enough of this nonsense already?

“Forget moral or ethical considerations… The end is what you want, the means is how you get it” – Saul Alinsky

What keeps us from being competitive is the highest corporate tax in the industrialized world (Japan and Canada just cut theirs). What keeps us from being competitive is that a full third of every dollar the government takes in goes to just paying the interest on the debt. What keeps us from being competitive is that our private sector is burdened with supporting a government that costs $4 trillion a year. What keeps us from being competitive is unions that over reach, public sector unions that not only over reach, but have stopped the needed reforms in public education. What keeps us from being competitive is a mountain of regulations, tax laws that no one can follow, taxes on everything that nickel and dime us, fear of bureaucrats that behave arbitrarily and all of the uncertainly these problems have caused.

Republicans moving to prune ObamaCare and cut spending

Posted by iusbvision on January 25, 2011

Senator Borrassso explains several of the preposterous, and downright silly regulations in ObamaCare

Senator Rand Paul explains his plan to cut spending by an extra $500 billion. I know that some people have concerns about him, but so far it looks like he is trying to keep the promises he ran on. This bill is a good first step and Senator Paul is making that pretty clear. His plan for entitlement reform seems like a good first step as well.

Gregory Hilton: Gov. Granholm will not be missed.

Posted by iusbvision on January 25, 2011

Gregory Hilton:

SHE WILL NOT BE MISSED: After an eight year tenure, Governor Jennifer Granholm (D-MI) left office earlier this month. Granholm has a high negative rating and now says she is through with politics forever. She is moving to California to be a law professor at UC-Berkeley. We do not know what she will tell her students, but for eight years Michigan residents always heard nothing was her fault.

She ignored the fact that unemployment was 4.8% under her GOP predecessor, and 13.1% when she left office.

Granholm deserves a significant amount of the blame, and the only industry which grew in Michigan in her era was government. The state now has 20% more government employees than manufacturing jobs. Michigan’s economy was growing when Granholm took office but she quickly reversed that trend. The state lost almost one million jobs while she was focusing on various liberal crusades. MSNBC’s Chris Mathews called her a genius, and she was — in killing jobs. Organized labor also deserves equal blame for contributing to the state’s unemployment problem.

Granholm shut down the government to win a debate with the legislature, and the result was one of the largest income tax increases in state history. She also succeeded in passing a 22% tax increase on gross business receipts. Republicans were solidly in opposition, and now all of their predictions have come true. The tax increases didn’t come close to raising the revenue she promised. In fact, this year Michigan will have 33% less revenue.
Many Michigan businesses closed down or left the state. Among all states, Michigan now ranks last in economic growth, first in unemployment, and third for high business taxes. It ranks 49th in retaining young adults.

Granholm was always a mouthpiece for the AFL-CIO and was consistently hostile to business. After eight years Michigan ended up with less business, less revenue and less employment. Granholm is gone but the lessons from her mistakes remain. Liberal Democrats such as Granholm do not realize that jobs are created by small businesses and lowering costs to employers. The Granholm agenda was similar to what so many other liberal Democrats are promoting. She increased spending which required higher taxes, and then she asked businesses to carry out her social agenda with laws, rules and regulations. The latter hides the spending from political fall-out.

If you want less of something, all you have to do is tax it. She increased taxes and then added excessive regulatory burdens on employers. The result was that companies such as Pfizer and Comerica left Michigan, and hundreds of thousands of jobs left with them.
