Category Archives: Federal layoff notices

Obama is proof that: Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely!

Obamaism:  definition:  Obama, a President who “goes around Congress” because he feels he is above the law!

Executive orders which abrogate the law…. Administrative employees who won’t answer Congress’ subpoenas…..Total dereliction of duty in protecting our American ambassadors and their staff……Sibelius campaigning FOR Obama on the taxpayers’ dime…..Obama lying about his gutting Medicare…………………Ignoring Israel, our chief Mid-East ally……….ATTEMPTING TO INTIMIDATE OUR MILITARY INTO NOT VOTING…….


Will Obama ever have to answer to these charges of corruption?  So, far, it doesn’t appear he will.  Witness yet another Obamaism:


Obama Urges Companies to Break Federal Law for His Reelection

For the past several weeks, several defense contractors made it clear they would have to send out layoff notices to thousands of workers due to automatic budget cuts set to take affect in January.The cuts are triggered by the debt ceiling “deal” hatched last year. The layoff notices are required under federal law.Understandably, the Obama Administration was panicked by this. The notices would hit in the last month of his reelection campaign and have a huge impact in the critical swing state of Virginia, home to hoards of defense contractors. What to do? Simple. Ignore the law.

Yesterday, Lockheed Martin, a massive contractor, announced it had reached a “deal” with the White House and would not send out the legally required layoff notices. The Obama Administration had “interpreted” the law and found it would be “inappropriate” to send out the layoff notices. 

More amazingly, the White House promised to pay any fines or penalties that might be leveled against the company for violating federal law. Read that again.

Yes, the White House just told companies to violate federal law and that, if they get in trouble for it, the government, i.e. taxpayers, will cover their fines.

Let’s remember, this federal law requiring the lay-off notices, the WARN Act, was passed in 1988 by a veto-proof Democrat Congress. It went into affect without President Reagan’s signature. It was an urgent matter for Democrats, until, apparently, they didn’t like the consequences of it.

Nothing must interfere with Obama’s reelection. NOT EVEN FEDERAL LAW.
