White House beds big business to screw Americans on immigration

They say “politics makes for strange bedfellows” and a clear example of that is playing out in the “City of No Character or Consequences” — Washington DC.

As reported by Politico, “Senior White House officials are in talks with business leaders that could expand the executive actions President Barack Obama takes on immigration. Obama was initially expected to focus only on slowing deportations of potentially millions of undocumented immigrants and altering federal enforcement policies. Now top aides are talking with leaders in big companies like Cisco, Intel and Accenture, hoping to add more changes that would get them on board.”

So the president, who famously told the private sector “you didn’t build that” and wants to punish those seeking respite from his “tax the rich” economic policies which are crushing private sector economic growth – those same private sector entities are willing to get in bed with Obama in order to screw over American workers. And all those Occupy Wall Streeters thought Obama was against big business, right? Nope, he’ll do anything to further his illegal immigration agenda.

Politico says “the outreach is an effort to broaden the political support for Obama’s decision to go it alone on immigration — another sign that suggests the White House fears a backlash in November, particularly among independent voters in battleground Senate races where Republicans are seizing on the issue. “The president has not made a decision regarding next steps, but he believes it’s important to understand and consider the full range of perspectives on potential solutions,” said White House spokesman Shawn Turner. “The meetings were in keeping with the president’s commitment to do whatever he can, within the constraints of the law, to address the immigration issue.”

According to Politico, “representatives from Oracle, Cisco, Fwd.US, Microsoft, Accenture, Compete America and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce were among those present at a wide-ranging Aug. 1 session that went through a list of asks for the tech sector that would involve rulemaking. Executive orders were not specifically discussed in that meeting, according to one source familiar with the session.”

This further demonstrates how there really is no one lobbying for middle-income Americans. And this clearly demonstrates how cronyism is plaguing America’s economy. We no longer have a free market economy. The White House, i.e. Obama’s belief is that getting big businesses on its side will influence voting in the November midterm elections. But how will this be explained to the American worker? How will this be explained to the parents who now must be concerned with the flood of illegal immigrant children into schools — and the ensuing price tag?

How does this stem the flow of illegal immigration into America? Well, of course it doesn’t, and will only encourage more, because this Obama administration will have rewarded it. Just imagine how many phone calls have gone back to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador stating, “Si, it is true, we are getting free schooling, food, and housing. And they’re going to get us jobs.”

Politico says “senior Obama administration officials stepped up their engagement with companies and business groups over the past month as they look to produce a series of executive orders starting in September. Aides are asking industry executives for ideas and are trying to earn their support against an expected barrage from Republicans opposed to Obama taking any action.

So just who is the party in bed with big business? Funny, I don’t suppose you’ll be hearing about this in any Democrat campaign ads. Remember when we all wondered why former Clinton aide, John Podesta, joined the Obama team, leaving the far Left Center for American Progress? Podesta is known for his ability to craft executive privilege and orders. And combined with the progressive socialist spinmeisters, just wait for what’s coming — and somehow the GOP will be blamed as big business aligns itself with progressive socialists for its own personal gain.

But we’re the ones how lose out. And y’all really thought Barack Hussein Obama was some new type of politician? Just the same ol’ conniving back door dealing, crony-embracing politician.

Earlier this month, according to Politico, “senior aides from the White House counsel’s office, office of public engagement and the office of science and technology policy, among others, huddled with more than a dozen business groups and company officials to discuss potential immigration policy changes they could make. Smaller meetings with the White House and Department of Homeland Security aides have continued throughout the month.”

The only thing keeping Obama from unleashing his executive order plan is the concern of Senate Democrats about losing their “control” of that legislative body. However, Obama cares only about himself and his legacy and you can imagine the pressure he’s receiving from radical Hispanic open border lobbying groups — La Raza and LULAC. Furthermore, Obama believes he needs something to help push out the Hispanic vote in November.

Folks, none of this is about what’s best for you, for America, for your children and grandchildren. This is the “hope and change” people voted for. But not all hope is lost. In November you, the American people, can send a message.

  1. the media, election fraud, is what keeps these type of people in office.
    People need to wake up and see what is going on around them.

  2. Neither party has a monopoly on bedding big business. Maybe your hate for Obama makes you think it’s just him, but deep down you know it happens on all sides. It’s too much money to resist for most politicians.

    The right politician could unite left and right on this issue. He or she won’t get any contributions but maybe could cause enough of a fuss to get some traction.

    Nah – he/she won’t get any money, and the media will destroy them. If that doesn’t work, they’ll get shot.

  3. And all the companies mentioned are democratic owned! So all you people who think Money is represented by republicans only, it’s time for you to get a clue!

      • Stupid about what? Microsoft & the companies mentioned are owned by Democrats! What so stupid about that? You Libs are always saying the Republicans are the big bucks and they buy their way out of everything, and we know there are alot more wealthy Democrats just the same! In my opinion, it’s the sneaky wealthy Democratss that would do something dirty like this just so Obama will help promote their Liberal agenda! We do not need amnesty for 5 to 6 million illegal immigrants! If you want to help them out then you and other liberals need to send your money to their respective Countrys and help them in that way! We can’t even take care of our own, just look at Ferguson, MO!

      • When it comes to CORPORATIONS they are both INVOLVED! Do you believe that a republican is not interested in making MONEY? You don’t know that republicans are behind the push for immigration reform? You have to be a special kind of stupid to believe that REPUBLICANS are not involved with this immigration push!

      • My whole point was that you, the Liberals, always blame the republicans for everything, including capitalism, and the article proves that is the Democrats just as much! FYI, I was a diehard Democrat until Jimmy Carter ruined it for all Democrats! The Democratic party used to exemplify the Blue collar working man, now it caters to the far left bleeding heart liberals who believe everyone needs a hand out, not a hand up, and entitlements have and are destroying this country! It’s sad, as the Blue Collar worker has no one to fight for him!

      • Alana, so true. The liberal administration has made the American Dream the American Nightmare for small business.

      • My immigration reform is send them all back where they came from if they came here illegally! It’s not fair to the people who go by the rules! I don’t think people realize how bad this issue is or the ammount of money it costss the taxpayers?

      • ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION is a NATIONAL PROBLEM! Though Republicans and mostly Democrats cater to the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS for cheap labor!

  4. All I can say is that illegals better NOT get handouts while we hard working Americans had to work our asses off for our ben efits from the government or there will be mass riots all over the USA

    • No there won’t (be any protests). You’re dreaming if you don’t think that “get without ever paying” policies are already in full-flow right now. President Ebola demands a country full of sheep ….. Google for the Cloward-Piven theory and it all reads like a script for what the POTUS is doing – unchecked!!!!

      • Plenty of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS where I live are living high on the hog with govt. benefits, see them at the local DSHS office when I take my clients that are on disability, to review their services there. I see plenty of what I am sure are ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS taking advantage of CITIZENS resources. Not to mention our local hospital was in the process of filing bankruptcy due to ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS and others of course using the hospital as a clinic! Most of the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS I see in our area refuse to learn ENGLISH, and are catered with interpreters, which is another reason medical costs go up. They will also have 3-5 kids each or more, and not have to pay for birthing costs, because the TAX PAYERS will pick up the tab! It’s sickening. Americans have enough to deal with our own CITIZENS not having the medical insurance to cover their costs in hospitals and clinics!?

      • What pisses me off more than anything – well, besides being squeezed DOWNWARD from the middle class by the insane taxation and Obamacare escalation costs – is the shabby treatment of our veterans.. There’s just no damned excuse – so-called humanitatian bull-spit for ANY non-citizen or not – to short-change our veterans … EVER! On anything!

  5. I promise you… I will rebuild my computer without parts from Intel or Cisco if this happens. I will throw out every product I own from the companies that support this sort of injustice.

  6. Respectfully, Mr. West does not understand FRR 2.1. Currently, US FRR is 1.95 and falling. What is FRR, it is the Fertility Replacement Rate. It is the core of economic stability and sustainability. The aging populations are the burden of an increasingly smaller workforce. There are only two regions of the world with >2.1, India and Africa. The choiced are:: send jobs overseas, immigration reform or mandate a higher birth rate (how awkward to implement). Current US need is estimated to be 30 million workers today, 90 million by 2050. Or, ladies, piease put away your career aspirations, aspirin tablets and birth control.

    • The FRR doesn’t matter in this case. Fact is, there is an oversupply of tech workers and over half of all STEM graduates are unemployed or not working in their chosen fields. Also, 90 million Americans are either unemployed, underemployed or have dropped out of the work force. The US does not need more cheap foreign labor.

      • US, Canada, Western Europe, Japan and Australia are <2.1 and falling. The technology and capital of these nations can be offshored or encourage migration. The failure to have maintained a stable FRR has resulted in domestic transfer of earnings to support aging populations. India and Africa are still 2-3 generations from <2.1. A young workforce and consumers are needed for businesses to succeed.

  7. I live in Texas and a few years ago I used to laugh at the pick ups on the highway that had Secede bumper stickers on them. I don’t laugh anymore. I’ve had it with this administration and the Far Left Liberals and would gladly welcome the change if it were to take place. Obama has kept our border open for anyone who wants to waltz on over to do so, which definitely includes the criminals and in all probability enemies of our country. Now, for what I’m sure are political reasons, he wants to start handing out work visas. I’ve had it! Thanks to Obamacare, I am now working part time and if it were not for help from my mother I would be in dire straights. I know what implications this is going to have for those of us who already make little and it is not in our favor. Secession is not a joke anymore, however, if it were to ever happen, after what Austin did to Perry we would have to move the capital and let the Liberals who support Drunk DA’s over a governor looking out for the welfare of it’s citizens, fend for themselves.
