White House’s business adviser says
China’s ‘state-run communism’ works

Daily Caller, by Neil Munro

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/11/2012 5:46:15 PM

The chairman of President Barack Obama’s job council has endorsed China’s style of crony capitalism, saying “state-run communism may not be your cup of tea, but their government works.” Jeff Immelt is the dual-hatted chairman of the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, and of General Electric, a huge company with businesses in many domestic and international sectors, including China. He used a Dec. 10 television interview to suggest that China’s type of state-run capitalism has been great for business while lamenting the state of the American economy.

Even if he believes state run communism works, how unseemly for a representative of our government to suggest such a thing.

Slavery worked too, you putz.

Lots of people admired Mussolini´s fascist state because the trains ran on time. Bummer for the people victimized by the system, but boy, was it efficient!

If Immelt were alive at the time, no doubt he´d praise Il Duce as well.

The China government is working great for the few that are high up in the goverment.
Just like in America they fly around in jets and helicopters eating and drinking on the people money.
How about the 3 Billion people that have 10 percent of what our poor have.
A few years back I spent a couple of months traveling all over China. We got a newspaper that was in english. Every evening Chinas secret service woulkd pick up the newspaper so the common people did not see it.
In the newspaper, they said the poverty in the rural ares are eliminated. By their definition poverty was $39 per year and now the average person in tural areas made $50 per year!
Damn that reall sounds like the govern,ment is working great.
I had a left wing friend state kjust last week how the Cuban government was pretty good as it had lasted for 50 years You can´t fix dumb.

You know if that´s the kind of reasoning they´re going to use then I´ll just offer some equivalently offensive examples.
Slavery worked pretty well to get the pyramids built. And let´s not forget those successful cotton plantations in the old South.

Now the truth. Communism has not worked in China. And neither did the oppressive crony kingdom that preceded it. It´s slight move towards capitalism is the only thing that has pulled it out of the economic doldrums. It has a big economy right now only because it has so many people. On a per-capita basis their economy is awful.

Way to put more folks out of work by using child labor. Jenna, you may want to hide your baby in the bull-rushes. That only gives Obama and Jarrett four years to continue tearing down this country in order to convince us that state-run communism will be good for us.

Immelt has made GE the model of the giant business which courts (euphemism) governments to secure preferences and contracts.

And a business can sometimes make a lot of money that way. So it is not surprising to hear him praise the Chinese approach. If that government changed course tomorrow he would praise that too.

As #7 says Mussolini and Fascism would seem to be his ideal. The state blocks competitors, allows profits, and does not nationalize. The business obeys and endorses the state.

Yeah, the cronyism, the corruption and most importantly...the kleptocracy. They are great for those CHOSEN businesses that the state controls or that are in bed with the state. The quid pro quo keeps them in the secondary business of corruption. Sickening that this stuff is said and there is NO outrage from the citizens. You know, I saw the short film by Matthew Modine called "Jesus was a Commie". He claims it isn´t about the kind of communism that Stalin, Mao or Castro had (because they corrupted the concept. Uh, NO! They just acted on normal human behaviors and fallibilities and the real consequences emerged as will always emerge under such a plan. In truth, all "commmunism" is the same and ends up with corruption, manipulation and massive suffering. Modine is a fool because he doesn´t understand the real meaning behind a lot of the things written in the Bible. They use simplistic interpretations without understanding context. No, Jesus was NOT a commie. And there is no "other" kind of communism that can be kinder and gentler and work for the good of all. I am so sick of these people pushing something they really don´t understand.

Let´s just call the new US regime La PRI (Institutional Revolution Party ). If you remember that was the gangster party which ruled Mexico as basically a one-party dictatorship for approximately 70-60 years. We´ve been importing potential PRI voters for a long time. Now we are reaping the consequences. But just face it, the United States has become a big fat carcass that the vultures will take their good time chowing down on. And believe me, we have the right head vulture in the White House to preside over the feast.

So Immelt fessed up to the obvious? With 0bama´s support, he apparently feels VERY sure of himself to have made this admission. Of course, there was no mention of RED China´s brute force tyranny in the pbs interview, which curiously had the cbs, ´eye logo,´ all over the set.

Both Charlie Rose & Emmelt seem to LOVE the PC, ´´The Third Way,´´ (although they no longer use that term for it), which is the EU´s method of attempting blend the tyranny of communism with Liberty´s capitalism. ...No good can come of this.

Obama does resemble that great Chinese communist, Chairman Mao in one regard: in a time when the country´s economy was failing, the leader resorted to demagogy and scapegoating successful people. Ultimately, innocent lives were lost and the country lost a generation of productive people and is only now catching up. In that one way, Obama is going to end up cursing America.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
