Obama to get help from UN to kill US Business

March 28, 2009

Not that His Royal Obamaness, our Dear Leader, needs any more help than the Demon-crat rich Congress and  Senate to pass his business killing policies, but now will have help from the ineffectual and corrupt United Nations.

FOXNews is reporting from a 16 page “note”  that will be “distributed to participants at a mammoth negotiating session that starts on March 29 in Bonn, Germany, the first of three sessions intended to hammer out the actual commitments involved in the new deal.” The new deal being the replacement for the Kyoto Accords  and “a critical step along the path to what the U.N. calls an “ambitious and effective international response to climate change,” which is intended to culminate at the later gathering in Copenhagen.

The major thrust and hope is to turn the AGWH (Anthropogenic Global Warming Hoax) into a further American Business Killer under the United World’s auspices through even more harsh regulations, and (un)intentionally moving much of the  American manufacturing industry to far less enlightened and environmentally irresponsible nations that don’t care how they pollute or how much CO2 they release into the air;  and, by the way, have low wage hungry workforces and third-world economies.

As a bonus, the regulations that are being pushed will also restrict emissions from aircraft, specifically those that travel long distances. So, the net result will be less general recreational/pleasure transcontinental and overseas air travel. I wonder how Europe (France, Germany, Italy, etc.) feels about cutting out it’s Amercias’ and Asian tourist money. I imagine that nearly half  (if not more) of all tourist spending and a large part of their economy comes from these “dollars”–especially France, which virtually has no industry to speak of except wine (man, they have a great publicity agency that can get you to visit their country and spend vast sums of money just to be insulted for doing so).

They warn reading of the “Notes” is not recommended while driving or operating heavy equipment as it will cause instantaneous coma, but is included for those that need a cure for insomnia. This will all lead up to the replacement of the Kyoto Accords that the U.S. never signed because of the threat to our  manufacturing and business industry. Obama, with his need to Socialize America, won’t think twice about signing onto any plan coming out of Copenhagen later this year that will help kill our current energy generation and power distribution industry, and push out other businesses so that the resultant increased and exploding unemployment will ensure the need and requirement for his social engineering.

U.N. ‘Climate Change’ Plan Would Likely Shift Trillions to Form New World Economy

Friday , March 27, 2009

By George Russell

A United Nations document on “climate change” that will be distributed to a major environmental conclave next week envisions a huge reordering of the world economy, likely involving trillions of dollars in wealth transfer, millions of job losses and gains, new taxes, industrial relocations, new tariffs and subsidies, and complicated payments for greenhouse gas abatement schemes and carbon taxes — all under the supervision of the world body.

Those and other results are blandly discussed in a discretely worded United Nations “information note” on potential consequences of the measures that industrialized countries will likely have to take to implement the Copenhagen Accord, the successor to the Kyoto Treaty, after it is negotiated and signed by December 2009. The Obama administration has said it supports the treaty process if, in the words of a U.S. State Department spokesman, it can come up with an “effective framework” for dealing with global warming.

I Love Jonah Goldberg–Labor’s ‘card check’ tricks

March 24, 2009

Jonah Goldberg has it right and the most concise (if there can be any) explanation for the EFCA (Employees Free Choice Act) or Card (“Youse gonna sign that for da’ union, aintcha?”) Check in his article below. As I’ve warned, this is part of the complete steamrolling of Dear Leader’s plan to kill American business and industry. You add higher profit taxes, the cap & trade/carbon tax, the requirement that all jobs generated under the spendulus bill must be paid at union wage scale and then card check to ensure we pump up the unions membership (and thereby their coffers, automatically) where can a business in the US make a profit? This doesn’t even include Queen Nancy’s 12-15 new democrat voters/union workers when she passes the Immigration Amnesty Bill. So, you think unemployment is bad now, just wait until businesses close for one or more of the reasons above, then you’ll see the real destruction of the United States.

Just remember, HRO promised to “fundamentally change the country”. Well, he is and a majority of the American people voted him in and themselves out of their jobs to get “CHANGE”.

Proposed legislation could ‘shanghai’ workers into joining unions.

At the end of the 19th century, unsuspecting workers were “shanghaied” — a practice originated in that Chinese city — to work on British ships, which desperately needed the labor. All manner of tricks were used to hoodwink the poor souls into service at sea. According to one legend, press gangs, or “crimps,” would put a coin — “the king’s shilling” — in a man’s drink. If the mark drank the ale only to see the coin at the bottom of an empty glass, it was too late and he was a member of the Royal Navy.

The proposed Employee Free Choice Act, colloquially known as “card check,” might be better named “The Democrats’ Shilling Act.” It would radically revise the National Labor Relations Act, primarily by diluting the practice of requiring workers to vote for unionization via an election with a secret ballot, and by changing the rules by which a government official can force labor rules on employers — making the choice to unionize less free. Basically, under card check, labor can unionize a company’s employeesif 50% of the workers sign a card saying they want to unionize. The cards can be signed in the presence of others, including union organizers. [emphasis mine]

Indeed, the press gangs much prefer it that way.

There is a bloody spin war over whether card check abolishes the secret ballot or not. Pro-card-check forces insist that it doesn’t. Unfortunately, these voices include many mainstream reporters who consistently use the language preferred by Big Labor. They note that if 30% of the workers sign a card asking for an election, they can have one.

But this ignores the unions’ crimp tactics. For starters, the cards are written in ways that make “predatory lending” mortgages seem like paragons of full disclosure.

At the National Right to Work website, you can find an example of one of these cards. In big, bold letters on top, it says “Request for Employees Representation Election.” But after you fill out all the relevant info, then there’s the small print, authorizing the Teamsters to “represent me in all negotiations of wages, hours and working conditions.”

In other words, in many cases, workers (more…)
