Head of Obama Jobs Council: “Communism Works” (VIDEO)

December 11, 2012 By a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

I’m curious how he came to that conclusion after four years of living in the People’s Republic of Obamastan.

Jeffrey Immelt, GE CEO and one of Obama’s Crony Capitalists, and Chair of The President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness (don’t laugh) had this insight to offer while chatting chummily with Charlie Rose. “Really, the one thing that actually works, you know, state run communism may not be your cup of tea but their government works.”

It certainly works for the people on top. Probably not so much for the millions of peasants kicked off their land. But what Immelt is forgetting that the Chinese Communist system only started becoming viable when it junked the Communist part and became a conventional oligarchy. And when America started becoming Communist and destroyed its own manufacturing making it possible for China’s Communist Party feudal lords to cash in by dumping cheap badly manufactured products on an America where you could no longer run a factory without the EcoFascist EPA breaking down your door with their stormtroopers, the way it happened to Gibson Guitars.

China is becoming a Communist run Capitalist system while America is becoming a Capitalist run Communist system under toads like Immelt.

MY TWO SENSE

OMG!!!  Jeffrey Immelt, General Electric CEO, siding with and boasting about John Boehner’s skill and finese at doing the Left’s bidding?  It’s a trick, and it’s not for Conservative good.  Boehner is a traitor to the GOP, his constituency, and his word.

Just Me

  3. “We’ll” wait? Is that you and the frog in your pocket? This is the last time I will explain to you, Ed. I did state my case. If you are unable or unwilling to comprehend or follow my line of thought, there is nothing more I wish to do. However, I will point out to you that you are obsessing on a point that means little to others, and even less to me. I believe I am correct, and you believe I am not–simple difference of opinion. As I said before, I treasure independent thought and ways to express thought, and I will defend your right to have opinions as well as expressing them any way you like. But I will not defend myself, and my right to the same, to an individual who obviously does not cherish or respect our First Amendment rights. And before you do what comes natural for you and tell me that I do not have the right to lie (that’s your opinion), I will say that it is quite clear that this entire Administration, and its supporters, all the way down to the peons, with big mouths and little intellect, have the right to lie pathologically. And so, I have the same right should I choose to exercise it. I do not because choose that because truths outlive lies every time!
    And stop obsessing. It isn’t good for your blood pressure!

  4. Look at the material I quoted here. Look at what Immelt actually said in the clip your borrowed source links to (have you bothered to look at it yet?).

    You claim you are not in error? Justify your claim. Where is your evidence that Immelt urges a turn to Chinese-style communism?

    Go ahead, make your case. We’ll wait. (It’s going to be a long wait. It would be quicker for you to just stop denying reality and admit error.)

  6. Your continuing efforts to draw me into battle only work when I have the time to engage and not because you have ever said anything worth debating.

    I’m not asking you to debate. I’m asking you to correct the record with regard to the facts of the matter. Jeffrey Immelt is not a communist, does not advocate communism, did not say communist China is a model the U.S. should follow.

    If you just corrected those three erroneous claims, it would be good.

  8. Jeffrey R. Immelt really said:

    More than 50 years ago, at Appliance Park, in Louisville, Kentucky, GE invested $1.2 million in a UNIVAC, the first computer deployed commercially in the United States. The UNIVAC was the size of a small garage, weighed almost 30,000 pounds, and took an entire workday to complete its calculations. Yet it was a game changer. In fact, in 1954 Roddy F. Osborn predicted in this magazine that GE’s use of the UNIVAC for business data processing would lead to a new age of industry: “The management planning behind the acquisition of the first UNIVAC to be used in business may eventually be recorded by historians as the foundation of the second industrial revolution; just as Jacquard’s automatic loom in 1801 or Taylor’s studies of the principles of scientific management a hundred years later marked turning points in business history.”

    Today, again at Appliance Park, another investment is breaking new IT ground. This past summer we opened a cutting-edge data center in one of the original buildings in the complex. It is among the few data centers to have received Platinum LEED certification, and it is filled with refrigerator-size racks of servers, each of them with computing power millions of times greater than the UNIVAC’s. The facility carries 350 watts (versus the usual 70 watts) per square foot, significantly improving power and cooling efficiency. It has raised GE’s uninterruptible power supply (UPS) efficiency to 99%.

    The $40 million data center and a multiyear IT project to replace more than 330 systems across the business with integrated software are just part of a larger $800 million investment in Louisville (and a total $1 billion investment in GE Appliances). We will create some 1,000 jobs in the United States by 2014.

    You can read that, and much more about Immelt’s ideas about investing in America, at The Harvard Business Review, March 2012 – http://hbr.org/2012/03/the-ceo-of-general-electric-on-sparking-an-american-manufacturing-renewal/ar

  9. When are you going to try to defend your position? Immelt is not a communist. Immelt did not urge Chinese-style communism on the U.S.

  10. Yes, I am the expert. When you show me the shell, I can describe the nut inside. You have chosen the wrong person to incessantly insult and to drone on, and on, with incomprehensible jabberwocky. When you cannot defend your position, regardless of subject, you offer up you staple response which always begins, “I merely observed that . . . blah, blah, blah.” The lame excuses you offer are merely efforts to save face and to appear innocent, as a kindly old gentleman who wouldn’t hurt a fly. You and I know better, don’t we? I imagine, in reality, you are capable of all kinds of nefarious conduct, although I think, prior to acting on those kinds of impulses, you would need an assurance that no consequences would follow. And yes, I do sense that that speaks to your personal values.
    You are old enough to know about, and fully understand, the process of this nation’s current demise. You have witnessed the division of classes, and races, brought on by this Administration’s spearhead of anti-white, anti-Constitution, and anti-religion pundits who hate America and those people who propose to disagree. The fact that you say otherwise, while condoning and spreading negative propaganda, does, in my humble opinion, mark you, and your kind as traitors to your country as well as to yourselves! You should thank me for supporting your right to speak as you do! I would never attempt to shut you down as you have done to me because I hold sacred the principles that started this country.
    Your continuing efforts to draw me into battle only work when I have the time to engage and not because you have ever said anything worth debating. The obvious is this; your arguments are always clearly slanted (as are mine), but also unsustainable, and unsubstantiated. They are, in short, your personal opinions which never address the factual points, a characteristic you have in common with that lune, Chris Mathews, and that is why, I will on occasion, play your game of Banter and Blame. Right now, I am getting too busy to come out. By the way, you did not wish me a Merry Christmas as I did you!

  11. I merely observed that, contrary to the claims in that piece you borrowed from another source, GE’s CEO did not advocate communism of any kind for the U.S.

    From that you imagine insult to you, psychoses for me, and all the time you avoid as much as possible either supporting your original claim, or doing the right thing and apologizing to Mr. Immelt.

    No matter the issue, it’s all about you and your ability to diagnose things through the tubes of interweb thingy. Isn’t that rather narcissistic?

    I only ask because I understand you’re an expert.

    Immelt is still a capitalist. He still didn’t endorse China’s government. You still owe him an apology.

  12. Ed, I swear I could have a conversation with you all by myself because I am extremely familiar with your type and your psychopathology. I know you due to my many years of experience treating people just like you. You cannot express yourself without insulting the other party. You know everything worth knowing, you are never wrong, you hear and see what you want to—no more, no less, and you have a difficult time maintaining and in-depth, relationship. Ed, you are a narcissist, but there is a silver lining. If you work hard and are honest with yourself, you may have a shot of benefitting from treatment/counseling. Other than that, I have no more to say as you would choose not to comprehend and then you would waste more of my time, arguing over facts you have already claimed are lies. Why do you bother? I know why—it’s because of whom you are—and that is the person I’ve described above. Seek help and Merry Christmas!

  13. You have taken his words and twisted the meaning into something unrecognizable.

    No, you did that.

    Now, aside from Immelt’s First Amendment right to say what he thinks, it is unacceptable, and somewhat frightening, for him, due to his position, to praise a form of government that we, Americans, find appalling.

    You have a first amendment right to imagine stuff, but it’s bad manners.

    Immelt pointed out that China is moving to a market economy. Does that bother you?

    Immelt pointed out that China’s government acts to promoted its own interests, and the interests of business, as opposed to our government, often hamstrung by critics (anyone we know) who make up stuff wholecloth to criticize in silly ways, rather than deal with what was said.

    I love the irony of your childish twisting of Mr. Immelt’s remarks, and your childish denial of doing it, and calling me childish to boot.

    So you agree with Immelt in the end. The irony never ceases.

  14. What compels you, and others on the Left, to sink to a level at which you denigrate, demean, and insult the person with whom you have chosen to communicate? And why do you ask a question and then, without waiting for a response, supply your own snotty answers, that put your words into the other person’s mouth? Why? You said to me, “Your views are weird, and not helpful to America, to the extent you oppose Immelt, or just to the extent you work hard to confuse his message.” That was childish, Ed, and you ought to be ashamed of yourself. Over a period of time, throughout your comments, I have noticed that you are in the habit of insulting others when you disagree. Apparently, for you, there is no such thing as legitimate differences of opinion.
    In defense of Immelt, you also said, “(Immelt) offered no commendation of communism in general.” Comprehension of that statement eludes me, as it makes no sense. Based on the definition of said political theory, it is not possible to praise, or bash, Communism piecemeal. It is a form of rule that has all of its facets intricately entwined, and one cannot separate out a portion of the theory without changing it into a completely different form! And in that case, one is no longer talking about Communism.
    As to the statement in the article, Jeffery Immelt, the Chair of The President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, said, “Really, the one thing that actually works, you know, state run communism may not be your cup of tea but their government works.” You have taken his words and twisted the meaning into something unrecognizable. Now, aside from Immelt’s First Amendment right to say what he thinks, it is unacceptable, and somewhat frightening, for him, due to his position, to praise a form of government that we, Americans, find appalling. Murder, oppression, and no respect for human rights, is blatant in Communist China. The fact that you cannot see what is obvious, tells me that you think along the same lines, and that you are not content to be an American patriot. Perhaps you should move to China where you can shake your pom-poms in support to your heart’s content.
    And finally, do I think China should beat us in international trade? No, I do not, but I don’t think we need to turn to Communism to compete with them.

  15. Listen to what Immelt actually said. He offered no commendation of communism in general. He said Chinese communism works with regard to getting things done to encourage growth, though he also criticized the rate of economic growth in China as too fast and too unsustainable. What he said is that we need to expand our markets there, and that we need to compete.

    You disagree? You think the U.S. should sit on its can and let China beat us in international trade?

    Immelt’s comments aren’t out of order. He’s calling for a stronger, more competitive business segment in the American economy. Your views are weird, and not helpful to America, to the extent you oppose Immelt, or just to the extent you work hard to confuse his message.
