Obama’s jobs plan for illegal aliens

By Curtis Ellis

President Obama said he would be “a transformative” president. Now we know what he means – he’s transforming the United States into a Third World country.

The president’s executive amnesty has legalized 5 million low-wage workers. What has gotten less attention is his jobs plan for illegal immigrants – a plan that will reverse 200 years of America’s economic development from agrarian colony to industrial powerhouse.

We first must understand what separates developed economies from Third World economies: Third World economies export raw materials, such as agricultural products and natural resources. Advanced economies process raw materials into value-added manufactured goods and sell these goods to the world. The great industrial powers scoured the globe for raw materials they then transformed into steel, rails, engines, automobiles and dynamos.

This is how Great Britain became the leading industrial power in the 18th and 19th centuries, and how the United States overtook them to become the greatest economic powerhouse of all time. (We also had the advantage of being blessed with an abundance of raw materials right at home.) This is how resource-poor Japan pulled itself from the radioactive ashes of Hiroshima to achieve first world status, and how the rest of the Asian “tiger economies,” including China, rose through the league lists.

Americans used to sneer at economies that depend on selling what comes out of the ground, but that’s precisely where our economy is now headed. After 15 years of so-called free trade with China, America’s top export to Beijing is soybeans. They sell us cell phones, computers, appliances, auto parts – and we sell them soybeans.

But rather than navigating a course correction, President Obama and his economic planners want to proceed full steam ahead. A series of government reports removes any doubt.

The Obama administration is pushing a NAFTA-like plan for global economic integration known as the TransPacific Partnership, aka Obamatrade. Secretary of State John Kerry says Obamatrade is the next step in merging the U.S. economy with 11 others around the world, including Mexico, Canada, Japan, Vietnam, Malaysia and the Islamic Sultanate of Brunei. These countries will be given special privileges for doing business with the U.S., privileges beyond those American citizens have.

While politicians naturally say Obamatrade will create jobs (that’s what Clinton and Gore said about NAFTA), we must ask: What kinds of jobs will be created?

And the government’s own analysis answers the question: Obamatrade will not create jobs for middle-class working Americans.

The non-partisan Congressional Research Service reports U.S. manufacturing will actually lose $44 billion under Obamatrade (see page 12).

At the same time, another report, from the Department of Agriculture, tells us farm exports will grow under Obamatrade.

So, the people who were given Obamnesty work permits will get jobs under Obamatrade – “If you like your farm worker, you can keep your farm worker” – while Americans working in factories will see their jobs go to Hanoi.

And there’s more bad news.

In the last few years, inexpensive natural gas and oil from the fracking boom have given American manufacturers an edge over Asian manufacturers. With natural gas prices up to five times higher in Asia than in the U.S., our cheaper energy offsets cheaper Asian labor.

But here’s the rub: Obamatrade requires America to export our gas to Asia to fuel their manufacturing industries. Even if Pennsylvania, Ohio or the U.S. Congress wanted to put Americans first in line for American energy resources, we would not be allowed to under Obamatrade. We’d be forced to sell natural gas to Asia so they could manufacture finished goods to export to the U.S.

In Obama’s economic plan, the U.S. will be essentially transformed into a Third World colony: transferring its resources to advanced countries on the other side of the ocean. America would export farm goods and raw materials, and import manufactured goods.

This is what the American economy looked like in 1776 – and it’s what our ancestors fought a revolution to end.

So why on earth would anyone want to go backwards?

In “Obama’s America,” Dinesh D’Souza says the TransPacific Partnership demonstrates how Obama favors global interests over national interests, and foreign companies over American companies.

What’s even more outrageous is that Obama has bipartisan help achieving his goal.

Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Beijing, says he’s eager to work with the White House to give Obama “fast track” authority to negotiate Obamatrade in secret – and even sign it before it goes to Congress.

Under fast track, Congress would surrender its constitutional responsibility to check the power of this president as he shapes the economic destiny of our country. Congress could not amend Obama’s Third World jobs plan.

It is imperative that we call and write Congress now and tell them we oppose giving this president fast track trade promotion authority.

The globalists and their Wall Street bagmen have bought the leaders of both parties in Washington. But it’s not too late. If we act now, We the People can stop them from turning America into a Third World colony.

If we don’t act, one day we will tell our grandchildren what it once was like when America was a free and sovereign nation.
