When White House resident Barack Hussein gave his first stimulus speech in 2009 (it seems like an nightmarish eternity ago), his speech writers coined the term "shovel ready jobs" which he used very effectively. This time around, they coined the phrase "...pass it right away," which he dropped 18 times during his reelection campaign speech from the floor of the House of Representatives on Sept. 8 in an address to a Joint Session of Congress when he made reference to what had to be a shovel-ready piece of legislation: The American Jobs Act. Pass it now, Obama said—like it could happen by voice acclamation during the Joint Session—and he'd put everyone back to work the next day. Shovel ready jobs. Shovel ready lies. In reality, the only job Obama was trying to save that evening was his own. His misappropriated speech to a joint session of Congress was done solely to boost his sagging poll numbers.
Obama may not have fallen off the turnip truck long enough ago to have learned how to effectively manage a nation, but he didn't fall off that turnip truck yesterday. He knows that a political approval rating below 39% means Democrats are already secretly weighing their options of lining up to challenge him in 2012. Odds-makers still aren't calling it an even money bet that Hillary Clinton will make another stab at the job. They're waiting for Obama's poll numbers to drop a little bit more—in 2012. Clinton may be among the most hated women in America, but at least she's an American citizen with a birth certificate that was not photoshopped into existence. And, she was right about who should not be answering the national security red phone at 3 a.m.
If you recall, when it did ring just before 12:30 a.m. Pakistan local time on May 2, 2011 (around 4:15 p.m. EDT, May 1st in Washington, DC) when US Navy Seal Team Six called from the compound in Abbottabab for the okay to kill Osama bin Laden, it wasn't Barack Obama who sanctioned the kill order. He froze. The kill authorization was reportedly given by then CIA Director and now Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. Hillary was right. Obama is not the guy you want answering the red phone at 3 a.m. In fact, he's not the guy you want answering any phone in the White House at any time of the day or night.
When the absolutely inexperienced junior State Senator from Illinois became the horribly inexperienced junior US Senator from Illinois, Obama reportedly already had his eye on the White House (or rather, his new mentor and "handler," George Soros who had already taken more than a cursory interest in him, had his own eye on controlling the White House) even though Obama had absolutely no proof that he was born in the United States—forget the fact that he was not a natural born citizen—which is why, as a college student in 1981, he was still globe-trotting on an Indonesian passport. (NOTE: In June, 2009, snopes.com referenced an email in which the writer raised the passport issue, stating that since Pakistan was on a US State Dept. "no travel" list, he was traveling on either a British [Kenyan] or Indonesian passport.) First of all, the US has only banned travel to one country—Cuba. On the other hand, visa services to Belarus, Eritrea, Libya and Yemen have been suspended. Which means you can't get there from here.)
The State Department publishes a "travel advisory list," which Pakistan was on in 1981. An advisory is a warning to Americans that it is not safe to travel to that country. If Obama was traveling on either a Kenyan or Indonesian passport, it tended to lend credence to the fact that he was not an American citizen. Snopes branded the email as FALSE, negating the email by saying: "...During the summer of 1981, when he was 20 years old, Barack Obama...embarked on a three-week trip to Pakistan...However, the claim that [he] set out on the trip using a non-US passport is false. The US State Department did not include Pakistan on a "no travel" list barring Americans from traveling there in mid-1981, and evidence documents that Americans could, in fact, freely visit that country at that time...In short, if Barack Obama did visit Pakistan in the summer of 1981, he—like all other Americans—could have openly done so bearing a US passport." (Snopes, July 14, 2009) Barbara and David Mikkelson offered absolutely no proof that Obama traveled on a US passport. The only thing they established as false was the statement the writer made that Pakistan was on a "no travel" list in the summer of 1981. They offered no evidence whatsoever to support their view that Obama traveled to Pakistan—or anywhere else—on a US passport. It's a safe bet that he didn't start using a US Passport until he got into government and no "proof of residency" questions were asked of him by the State Department. After all, no one has ever questioned the fact that the Barack Obama, who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC uses a different Social Security number than former US Senator Barack Obama.)
Meanwhile, back at that circus we call Congress. Obama's joint session "jobs" speech on Sept. 8 seemed to imply, without providing any details, that his staff or the Democrats, authored what he repeatedly referred to as The Jobs Act. In reality the legislation which already exists, was authored by Republicans. Its enactment was being blocked by the Democrats, whom Obama implied was going to save America by providing millions of new jobs. (When Obama spoke, he failed to mention that he used exactly the same jobs rhetoric in January 2009 when the Democratic super majority in the US House and Senate passed his—not Bush 43's—$787 billion stimulus boondoggle that Obama said would grow 1.9 million new jobs, and that millions of existing jobs would be lost without it. Like every good community organizer (the only thing Obama has any real experience doing), Obama excels in frightening and intimidating. Since he has never grown a free enterprise system business nor managed anything within the free enterprise system, he utilized his community organizing skills and tactics to downsize what used to be the larger economy in the world because that's what socialists do best—they destroy incentive and they destroy the will to excel because socialism robs the sweat equity investment of working men and woman make in their society.
The economic system of the United States and the European industrial complex produced roughly 80% of the consumer products until 1994 when the Democratically-controlled Congress, working against America's labor unions enacted the North American Free Trade Agreement [NAFTA]. Senate Majority Leader George J. Mitchell [D-ME] led the fight to enact NAFTA. Mitchell could not get enough votes to ratify the North American Free Trade Agreement as a treaty, so they enacted it as a law. As such, it can be repealed although it is treated as a binding treaty. Mitchell declined to run for reelection in 1994, expecting the American people to exact revenge on the Democrats for NAFTA. They did.
Today, even with the net loss of 3.0 million jobs due to NAFTA, Mitchell insisted that NAFTA is good for America. In reality, it was the first nail in the coffin of the United States of America. Today, another globalist White House occupant is holding the hammer, and he has a pocketful of nails that he is already using to seal the coffin of what used to be America. His name is Barack Obama.
As I started to say before I interrupted myself, I wonder if Obama knew there was a piece of legislation in Congress—HR1744 (HR1745) and S.904—that would save what's left of the job base of America if Congress would just stop taking bribes from the lobbyists for the princes of industry and the barons of banking and business, and put the People before the State.
Of course he did. But he thought you didn't. The jobs bill that has been tied up in Congress since May is a real jobs bill. The jobs initiative created by Republicans in May has just been hijacked by Obama's bill just released by the Obama White House. The GOP's Jobs, Opportunity, Benefits and Services Act of 2011 which actually was designed to put Americans back to work, was introduced by Rep. David Camp [R-MI] on May 4, 2011. Camp's JOBS Act had three original cosponsors, none of whom were Democrats. First is Rick Berg [R-ND], and Geoff Davis [R-KY] and Steve Stivers [R-OH]. That bill has 138 cosponsors Two of them, Mike McIntyre [NC] and Dan Boren [OK] are Democrats. The Senate version of the Jobs, Opportunity, Benefits & Service Act of 2011 appears to be parked in a porcelain library somewhere in the Hart Senate Office Building close to either Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's office or the office of S.904's GOP sponsor, Sen. Orrin Hatch. There are no cosponsors on the Senate version.
Although Obama's jobs legislation is a "johnnie-come-lately" bill, the GOP jobs bill, will now appear to be the copycat jobs bill, was actually introduced on May 4, 2011. People will be asking why the Republicans, who have been talking "jobs talk" since Spring, couldn't come up with a plan until Obama offered his flagship piece of legislation to create jobs. "I am sending this Congress a plan that [they] should pass right away," he said. "It's called the American Jobs Act. There should be nothing controversial with this piece of legislation. Everything in here is the kind of proposal that's been supported by both Democrats and Republicans—including many who sit here tonight." In point of fact, we know that the Jobs, Opportunity, Benefits & Service Act of 2011 was supported by two Democratic cosigners and 135 Republicans in the House and Orrin Hatch in the Senate. Since the House has the votes to enact legislation without a single Democratic vote, the puzzling question is why, after four months, is that legislation still buried in the GOP-controlled House? Obama continued, "And, everything in this bill will be paid for. Everything."
As the battle to deceive the minds of the people for votes continues, here's the sad reality of this chapter of the story. Neither political party seems to understand the simple truth about real job growth in the United States. It isn't going to happen. It can't. At least, not the type of job growth America needs to regain its status as the most powerful economy in the world. Financial Times reported on Sept. 13 that job creation across the globe is slowing, and will slow even more sharply in the last three months of the year as companies worldwide scale back their hiring plans in response to the sputtering global economy.

In addition, the Financial Times reported this will be unwelcome news for politicians on both sides of the aisle who are struggling to bring stubborn high unemployment numbers down. A week ago, the Obama Labor Department acknowledged that the US economy created no new jobs in August. They noted that the jobless rate remained at 9.1%. Of course, when it comes to "bad numbers," politicians are prone to lie to the public even when they are honest among themselves. For part two click below.
