In typical Chicago mobster style President Obama sends Gibson Guitars CEO Henry Juszkiewicz a thinly veiled threat, “Nice Business you got there Juszkiewicz, be a damned shame if something happened to it”.
Two raid’s on Gibson facilities in 14 months by heavily armed federal agents and a promise that “some of his problems “would go away” if the company used Madagascar labor” cannot be viewed any other way. Taken in combination with the inexcusable and criminal actions taken by the Holder Department of InJustice, dismissal of the New Black Panther voter intimidation case, the Fast and Furious scandal, the failure to investigate and prosecute the Pigford scandal, and Obama’s Gulf Oil drilling peratorium, and violation of the War Powers Act, the Obama Administration has managed to make the Tammany Hall and Teapot Dome scandals look like the acts of Cub Scouts playing harmless pranks.
Barack Obama ran his presidential campaign on certain promises, he promised to clean up Washington corruption, to have an administration that governed by bipartisan agreement, to have the most transparent administration in American history. What did he deliver? The most corrupt scandal ridden administration in American History, the late Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley would be green with envy with what Obama has managed to get away with so far. On bipartisanship, Obama’s declaration to the GOP over the Obamacare negotiations of “I won” pretty much says all their is to be said. The complete and total stonewalling of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s investigation into the “Fast and Furious” gunrunning scandal is testimony to just how transparent the Obama Administration actually is, which is to say, as transparent as a brick-wall.
On Sept. 8th 2011 President Obama will address a joint session of congress and the people of the United States to outline his jobs creation plan. Anyone think he is going to mention the fact that he is using blackmail to force jobs in Tennessee to Madagascar? How about the fact that he used the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico to shut down drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, thus sending dozens of drilling rigs to other countries, while also spending 2 Billion dollars to finance offshore drilling in Brazil?
As Gibson Guitars CEO Henry Juszkiewicz can tell you from first hand experience, Obama does indeed have a Job’s plan, that plan is to send as many American Jobs to foreign countries as possible. President Obama’s labor secretary, Hilda Solis recently demonstrated just how pervasive this mentality is within the Obama Administration.
File this one under the, “Wow! I could have had an American V-8!” column.
To show her support for American workers, President Obama’s labor secretary, Hilda Solis, has junked the standard black limo and purchased a new Chevrolet Equinox to ride around Washington in. The problem: the crossover SUV is built and assembled in Canada from parts also made in Canada.
Solis proudly arrived at a media breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor today in the shiny silver vehicle, which she has dubbed the “bullet.” She was asked about why she traded the standard-issue limo for the SUV. “What better example could I set if I encouraged my staff to go and purchase and seek how we could acquire a vehicle that would for me would send a signal that we’re for supporting our American workers, American-made products, fuel efficient as well,” she told the Monitor’s Dave Cook, who provided this video of her answer.
Let us not forget the plight of Boeing Aircraft either, who are under very similar attack by the Obama Administration, NLRB attempting to shut down their brand new South Carolina assembly facility, or the actions of the EPA attempting to shut down all oil and gas operations in the Marcellus Shale fields?
Yes, Obama does have a jobs plan, no Americans need apply.
