OBAMA’S 2ND-TERM PLANS FOR YOUR PAYCHECK EXPOSED: Specific outline crafted to determine worker’s ‘value’ in private sector
Posted on August 7, 2012 at 2:20 AM EST
An explosive book released today documents how progressive organizations behind White House policy have crafted specific, second-term plans for the federal government to determine the âvalueâ of individual jobs in the private sectorÂ instead of allowing employers to pay what they want.
Other second term âeconomic fairnessâ plans include concentrating more power with the federal government to rectify âbiasâ and âdiscriminationâ in the workforce regarding salaries for âequivalentâ â but not necessarily equal â jobs in the private sector.
This is in addition to the enactment of a âliving wageâ that would force all employers to increase the salaries of the nationâs workers to meet âbasic needsâ such as housing, food, utilities, transportation, health care and recreation.
These schemes, and many more, are documented inÂ âFool Me Twice: Obamaâs Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed.â
The book by New York Times bestselling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott uncovers the template for Obamaâs next four years â the actual, extensive plans created by Obamaâs own top advisers and progressive strategists.
âFool Me Twiceâ unveils all the main areas of Obamaâs second-term domestic policy onslaught â jobs, wages, health care, immigration âoverhaul,â electoral âreform,â national energy policy, Pentagon plans and more.
Obama has made âeconomic fairnessâ the centerpiece of his second term agenda. The presidentâs January 2012 State of the Union address called for âequal pay for equal work.â
âFool Me Twiceâ uncovers the radical origins of the âeconomic fairnessâ mantra as well as Obamaâs specific second term âfairnessâ plans.
Write Klein and Elliott: âOne of the most deceptive tricks in Obamaâs rhetorical arsenal is his use of the term economic fairness. A prime example of the progressivesâ use, in general, of harmless-sounding rhetoric in their advancement of radical objectives, this âfairnessâ derives directly from the Marxist conception of economic justice.â
Late Harvard professor John Rawls, one of the most important philosophers of liberalism in the twentieth century, named his own theory âjustice as fairness.â Some have previously pointed to Rawlsâ possible influence over Obama. Rawls calls for ensuring distributive justice of resources.
âFool Me Twiceâ documents how progressive groups behind Obamaâs first term agenda are now pushing plans, some already attempted in previous progressive Democrat legislation, for a second Obama term push for âPaycheck Fairnessâ and so-called equal pay fairness.
Originally, âequal payâ legislation, such as the 1963 Equal Pay Act, had the goal of ensuring women would not be paid less for doing the same jobs as men.
The current progressive concept of equal pay, âFool Me Twiceâ relates, would give the government sweeping powers to require employers to compensate workers according to an artificial calculation of a jobâs âvalueâ rather than what the private market is willing to pay.
Other powers would allow federal bureaucrats to decide which jobs are underpaid and would require employers to raise wages.
The government would also determine whether âbiasâ or âdiscriminationâ exists in âequivalentâ â but not equal â jobs based on race, sex, sexual orientation and other determining factors.
Warn Klein and Elliott: âIn truth, Obamaâs progressive conception of fairness is not the classic Marxist one, or Marx was the prophet and theoretician of a revolutionary working class. But todayâs neo-socialist progressives have completely abandoned and betrayed the working class, along with small-business owners, in favor of a welfare class, a middle class ever more dependent on government hand-outs, and a progressive, liberal elite.â
Such a welfare system is also in the works.
WND reported last weekÂ how âFool Me Twiceâ reveals Obamaâs second term agenda includes the prescription for the implementation of a higher minimum wage that would âraise the floor for all employeesâ nationwide.
Such a âliving wageâ â a pet project of ACORN â was previously attempted in over 80 U.S. cities, many times to disastrous affect.
The progressive groups, already instrumental in influencing Obamaâs first-term economic agenda, also call for Obama and Congress to enact a government mandate to force businesses to provide 12 weeks of paid benefits to employees who need time off to care for a new child, a sick family member or their own illness.
Four more years?
Released today by WND Books,Â âFool Me Twice: Obamaâs Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed,âÂ unveils all the main areas of Obamaâs second-term domestic policy onslaught.
âJust as âUnfit for Commandâ provided the margin of defeat for John Kerry in 2004, âFool Me Twiceâ will ensure Obama serves only one term,â said WND Books publisher Joseph Farah.
Just as in 2008, when Obama concealed his true presidential plans behind the rhetoric of ending partisan differences and cutting the federal deficit, his 2012 re-election theme of creating jobs conceals far more than it reveals about his true agenda for a second term.
Most conservative books about Obama focus on his radical background and what he has done until now. A small number of ambitious projects attempt to show what America may look like after four more years of Obama based on generalities and what the president has already done.
While many are expressing general concerns over Obamaâs future ambitions, âFool Me Twiceâ lays bare the devastating details and consequences of a second Obama term as president.
The book is based on exhaustive research into Obamaâs upcoming detailed presidential plans and policies, as well as the specific second-term recommendations of major âprogressiveâ groups behind Obama and the Democratic leadership â the organizations that help craft legislation and set the political and rhetorical agenda for the president and his allies.
Here are a few highlights of dozens and dozens of second-term plans uncovered in âFool Me Twiceâ:
- Government-funded, neighborhood-based programs to better integrate the newly amnestied immigrants into society, including education centers and health care centers. A âfederal solutionâ to ensure that the amnestied immigrants are treated âequitablyâ across the United States.
- The re-creation of a 21st century version of FDRâs Works Progress Administration program within the Department of Labor that would oversee a massive new bureaucracy and millions of new federal jobs.
- Specific plans for a National Infrastructure Bank.This entity would âevaluate and finance infrastructure projects of substantial regional and national importanceâ and would finance âtransportation infrastructure, housing, energy, telecommunications, drinking water, wastewater, and other infrastructures.â
- Wresting control of the military budget from Congress by attempting to place an âindependent panelâ in charge of military spending while slashing the defense budget in shocking ways.
- The vastly reduced resources of the U.S. Armed Forces will be spread even thinner by using them to combat âglobal warming,â fight global poverty, remedy âinjustice,â bolster the United Nations and step up use of âpeacekeepingâ deployments.
- A new âgreenâ stimulus program and the founding of a federal âgreenâ bank or âEnergy Independence Trust,â which would borrow from the federal treasury to provide low-cost financing to private-sector investments in âclean energy.â
- Detailed plans to enact single-payer health care legislation controlled by the federal government.
