Truly Amazing Fascism Alert: Obama Promises To Pay Defense Contractors’ Legal Fees If They Will Violate Federal Law So He Can Get Re-elected

October 1, 2012

You first need to understand that there is something called the WARN Act that requires contractors to notify employees 60 days in advance if they will be laid off.

Obama is literally telling contractors, “I want you to violate federal law for me and basically screw your workers by telling them, “Surprise!  You’re laid off!” with absollutely no warning so Obama can get reelected.  Because if 2 million layoff notices go out he’s toast.  And Obama is quite literally saying to the contractors, “If you break the law for me so that I can get reelected before the American people realize what I did to their country, I’ll redistribute taxpayer money to pay for your legal costs when you get sued for breaking the law for me.”

White House to contractors: Hold off on layoff warnings
By Jeanne Sahadi @CNNMoneySeptember 28, 2012: 6:51 PM ET

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — The White House on Friday told government contractors worried about fiscal cliff spending cuts to hold off on warning employees about possible layoffs.

The government said it would cover legal costs if contractors are forced to slash their payrolls because of the looming $109 billion in automatic cuts next year and are alleged to have violated the WARN Act.

The federal WARN Act requires businesses with more than 100 employees to notify workers at least 60 days in advance of a mass layoff or plant closing. Some states require more notice.

“Any resulting employee compensation costs for WARN Act liability as determined by a court, as well as attorneys’ fees and other litigation costs (irrespective of litigation outcome) would qualify as allowable costs and be covered by the contracting agency, if otherwise reasonable and allocable,” the Office of Management and Budget said in its guidance.

Top CEOs: Fiscal cliff is hurting jobs

Defense contractors in particular have warned for months that the upcoming sequester would cost jobs in their industry. And Lockheed Martin’s CEO has said publicly he may be forced to issue notice this fall of possible layoffs in 2013.

If other contractors follow suit, there could be a rash of layoff notices spooking employees right before Election Day.

Both parties in Congress created the sequester — a series of thoughtless, automatic, across-the-board cuts — as a way to force their hand to agree on a more gradual bipartisan debt-reduction plan.

Well, that hasn’t happened yet. And if lawmakers can’t agree on how to replace the sequester soon, the cuts become effective on Jan. 2.

Gee, I’m not a lawyer and I’m not qualified to offer legal advice blah blah blah, but isn’t it kind of blatently illegal for the government to proactively offer to cover legal costs to encourage company to violate federal law for partisan political motivations?  Not that such trivialities matter in Nazi Germany or anything…

I think Obama should come out and blame these layoffs on that anti-Muhammad Youtube video.

What is the purpose of the WARN Act?  It is to give workers who are facing layoffs time to look for another job so they can have a chance to pay their mortgages and feed their families.  Obama is saying, “I don’t care about the workers and their rights; I am the messiah and my campaign is far more important.”

So these companies are legally required to send out these notices 60 days before January 1, 2013, so that the 2.14 million workers who are about to be laid off can at least send out some resumes.  But not now; thanks to Obama and his endless campaigning, the layoff will be a big surprise.  And Obama is saying, “If you will violated the law and screw your workers for me, I’ll make sure the taxpayers cover your legal expenses when these enraged workers sue you because you broke the law as I told you to do.”  Which amounts to a massive campaign donation to Obama from the taxpayers to help Obama get reelected.

As I just got through pointing out, the sequestration and the gutting of the defense industry that will create these layoffs was Obama’s idea.  Further, as I pointed out, Obama has already gone on the record stating that he would VETO any manuever to prevent the defense industry from being gutted that will require these 2.14 million layoffs.

So this is nothing more than yet another example of Obama refusing to be held accountable for his failed policies by the American people whom he is hurting.

Pro-Illegal Immigrant Supporter Threatens Murder Of Americans With Axes And Shovels

June 28, 2010

This goes hand in hand with other very recent news that the judge who overturned Obama’s oil-drilling ban has received death threats from the left:

U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman, who overturned the Obama moratorium on drilling in over 500 feet of water in the Gulf, now has to have federal marshalls protect him because of death threats against him.

Watch the video of a pro-illegal immigration proponent literally threatening a racist murder spree against white people.

It doesn’t matter if virtually all the actual violent acts and threats of violent acts are coming from the left.  It’s all the tea party’s fault.

It also doesn’t matter that Article. IV., Section. 4 of the Constitution states, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union, a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.”

It doesn’t matter that the Demagogue-in-Chief has cynically refused to do his constitutionally-mandated duty protecting Arizona in favor of holding border security hostage to his Marxist political agenda.

It doesn’t matter that Phoenix, Arizona is the world’s second worst cities for kidnappings in the entire world behind only Mexico City.

It doesn’t matter that Mexican drug gangs have literally taken over Arizona hilltops, where they are maintaining continuous observation posts that a helpless Arizona police force can’t do anything about:

Mexican Gangs Maintain Permanent Lookout Bases in Hills of Arizona
By Adam Housley
Published June 22, 2010

Mexican drug cartels have set up shop on American soil, maintaining lookout bases in strategic locations in the hills of southern Arizona from which their scouts can monitor every move made by law enforcement officials, federal agents tell Fox News.

The scouts are supplied by drivers who bring them food, water, batteries for radios — all the items they need to stay in the wilderness for a long time.

Click here for more on this story from Adam Housley.

“To say that this area is out of control is an understatement,” said an agent who patrols the area and asked not to be named. “We (federal border agents), as well as the Pima County Sheriff Office and the Bureau of Land Management, can attest to that.”

It doesn’t matter that even the federal government is warning that large swaths of Arizona are now off-limits because Mexican drug gangs have overrun it.

It doesn’t matter that Arizona is so overrun with criminal illegals that the federal government is putting up more and more warning signs telling American citizens that they are not safe to enter their own country.

It doesn’t matter that criminal Mexican gangs are literally threatening Arizona police officers with assassination:

Arizona Cops Threatened by Mexican Drug Cartel
Ominous Threat From Mexican Dealers Is the First Directed at U.S. Law Enforcement

By RAY SANCHEZ
June 24, 2010

A Mexican drug cartel has threatened police officers in Arizona who confiscated a marijuana shipment, prompting the small town department to warn its officers to remain armed and have radios with them at all times, and keep their body armor handy.

Police and experts believe the warning against the Nogales, Ariz., cops marks the first time that powerful Mexican drug cartels, used to bribing and bullying police south of the border, have targeted U.S. officers.

It doesn’t matter if Arizona police officers are already being gunned down by AK-47-wielding drug gangs.

It doesn’t matter that an outgunned Arizona police force are literally begging for help.

It doesn’t matter that out-of-control mobs of illegal immigrants and Hispanic supporters of illegal immigration have even attacked the police.

It doesn’t matter that the Arizona law is completely constitutional, or that the Arizona law actually merely gives the state the power to enforce existing federal law, or that Arizona actually watered the law down to deal with the avalanche of lies being told by the left:

The simple fact of the matter is that the federal law is FAR “harsher” or “more racist” than the Arizona law (see also here for a more detailed analysis).  The Supreme Court has ruled unanimously (that means even Ruth Bader Ginsburg voted for it!) in the 2005 Mueller v. Mena case that the federal authorities have the right to demand citizenship status at any time for any reason without the need to demonstrate reasonable suspicion [Muehler v. Mena, 544 U.S. 93 (2005) (“the officers did not need reasonable suspicion to ask Mena for her . . . immigration status.”)].  The Arizona law is actually FAR more restrictive than the current federal law that the Obama White House WILL NOT ENFORCE.  And the Arizona law is completely constitutional for that reason.  The left has demonized, demagogued, and most certainly flat-out lied about the Arizona law.

[See here for more].

It doesn’t matter that the leftist whackjobs – including the leftist whackjobs in the Obama administration who are going to attack Arizona – have not even bothered to read the law that they’re demonizing.  Obama is suing Arizona for a law that is no different from the federal law, while ignoring all the “sanctuary cities” that have been in total violation of the federal law.

It doesn’t matter that illegal immigration is costing the American taxpayers billions of dollars every single year that are overwhelming our economy:

“Costs on average for every illegal alien headed household about $19,600 more if they consume the city services than they pay in taxes, so the rest of the taxpayers have to part costs. Schools become overcrowded, English as second language programs push out other programs.”

It doesn’t matter that the same illegal immigrants who are a burden to our country are in fact a burden to their own damn country.  And that if they’re a burden to their own country, how in the hell are they not a burden to ours?

It doesn’t matter that the very Mexicans who are demonizing our tolerant immigration laws don’t seem to care about how harsh the Mexican government is about dealing with THEIR illegal immigrants.

It doesn’t matter that the violence in Mexico that is clearly coming here is so out-of-control in Mexico itself that the man expected to win election as the next governor in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas was just gunned down and murdered.

None of that matters to the despicable left.

The Democrat Party demands that nothing be done at all to stop illegal immigration because they believe they can use the issue to demagogue their way to winning the Hispanic vote.  The Democrat Party demands that Arizona not be allowed to do anything whatsoever to protect themselves.

It doesn’t matter that the Democrat Party and the mainstream media that writes their propaganda are officially hypocritical, demagogic, and yes, frankly both evil and treasonous as well.

We are becoming an out-of-control society on the verge of collapse, and we need to purge ourselves of Democrats as much as we need to purge illegal immigrants.
