Obama Job Council Chairman on China: State-run Communism might not be your cup of tea, but it works!

I’m shocked, SHOCKED to find commie-ogling going on in my government!

That’s Obama crony Jeffrey Immelt if you didn’t know.

    Stop taxing us and leave us alone.

  • Orangeone

    From the chief of avoiding payment of US taxes, Jeffrey Immelt. I wonder what the people of China think…..

  • Indiana

    This is sickening. I would like to know where and when it has worked.

    • keyesforpres

      Watch the video I posted.

    • warpmine

      Wouldn’t work there either unless a complicit political and union class sell out their home country for the destination of all those goods.

      Who are we kidding, freedom is obviously over rated.

  • white531

    Yeah, I saw this on another site this morning. CEO of General Electric. What a sadness.

    • General Electric is about as crony as they get. Government money has kept them going for some time now. They got tons of bailout money and government contracts for “green” initiative manufacturing that went, you guessed it, to China.

    • deTocqueville1

      What a contrast to Jack Welch.

      • sDee

        The stockholders clearly love Immelt.

  • Here’s the “hilarity” of it all– “it works,” Jeffrey, because communist workers receive $5 a DAY in China; there are NO UNIONS, no collective bargainin no yearly pay increases. The bargaining is “do I get beaten before or after my 18 hour workshift, for which I am paid enough to buy a cup of rice each month?” Can you see ANY of the entitlement mentality crowd who love to sit at home and get their ObamaPhone and welfare check or any of the union workers going for this? LOLOL How soon all the freedom and liberty vanish in the utopia where everyone is equally miserable– but there’s ObamaCare! (the equivalent of the booby-prize) and everyone has an ObamaPhone– but no minutes– and a gubmint listening device installed for free.

    • Don’t be so tough on China. I hear that they are backing off on killing people to harvest their organs.

      • sDee

        Yeah, let’s cut them some slack, after all, they have to compete in the organ market now with Bill Clinton’s Kosovo Muslims.

        Latest “Serbian Myth” Proves True: Organ Extraction

        • NoToTyrants

          Which side was NATO and the United States on in this conflict again? Oh yes…that of the savage Muhammadans.

          Thanks to Tony Blair and the UN who kept screaming …genocide …genocide …genocide. Of course we now know there was no genocide, only Serbs defending themselves from KLA terrorists who were killing Serb civilians.

          Milosevic, while not exactly someone who promoted freedom and democracy, was only protecting his people from a Muslim terrorist group seeking to transform Kosovo into an Islamic nation.

          The United States and NATO not only fought with the KLA against the Christian Serbs, we helped the KLA transform Kosovo into an independent Islamic nation, displacing many in the Christian minority, turning them into refugees. Hey UN, how about the Christian refugees from Kosovo, Egypt, Iran, etc?

          Considering that the U.S. and NATO aided the savage Muhammadans in their Jihad, wouldn’t you think it would afford us a little good will with these barbarians? Of course the answer is no, they hate us even more. Appeasement and weakness breeds contempt.

          • Conniption Fitz

            Clinton deserves the gallows on that one. But the Bushes are no less dastardly. Every fire inspector and demolition expert in the US knows the twin towers had help coming down. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence watching a jet explode on a runway knows it too.

            The very idea that Hillary and Jeb would have the gall to run for President in 2016 is utterly disgusting.

            • aposematic

              What is really disgusting is that their respective Parties would have the gall to run them.

  • In 1937, the trains were on schedule and things worked in Germany. Worked very well for those in power. Godwin’s Law is now in affect.

    • And he can take the China-besotted Paul Krugman with him

      • Sober_Thinking

        Lol… seriously.

    • If he had ever lived in China, he would never have made the remark. I lived there from 2007 – 2010 in Sichuan Province. Records from the last few years indicate there are an average of 30,000 local demonstrations across China against the efficiency of the local governments each year.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Great point… thanks for the insight.

    • aposematic

      Production already there… As long as he doesn’t pay taxes he will stay here.

  • sjmom

    Apparently state run Communism is your cup of tea Jeff but it is not mine.

    • sDee

      In China Immelt would be summarily executed for selling sovereign assets such as jet turbine aircraft engine technology to China’s enemy, as he did to America.

      Useful idiot.

  • Nukeman60

    Yes, Jeffy, it is great for the government, but what is it for the people. Remember the people? Those little peons that work hard for you so that GE doesn’t have to pay any taxes at all. Who’s not paying their ‘fair share’ here, Jeffy?

  • sDee

    State Capitalism is the model they want. Been that way since Hussein Obama, Anita Dunn and Van Jones drooled over China in Husseins’ first years.

    State Capitalism is the elitist’s fascist nirvana where the Party has absolute control and wealth by giving and taking the rights to run business to those they chose. They “permit” a middle class of professionals and business men to live a affluent existent – on a tight leash of their choosing – reigned in at the whim of party members. The “middle class” lives with a chance of luxury but fears crossing the party and ending up penniless, or in jail to have their organs harvested.

    Chinese State Capitalism hinges on slave labor – the brutal exploitation of the masses. This is also why it will collapse in Chairman Hussein’s nirvana – we have no labor. The American Fascists have forced labor intensive business overseas, and had to put our able bodied labor and much of our skill onto entitlements to secure enough votes to live above the law. They back filled this with illegal labor by opening the borders, but the illegals too must be courted by our political elites.

    Their pathetic aggrandized experiment in neo-fascism will go down in flames to take America, a 5000 year leap of mankind, with it.

    The Rise of Innovative State Capitalism

  • I’m sorry, was he wrong that China’s economy has performed well for the past 30 years? China’s economy has performed very well for the past 30 years, so he’s right.

    • sDee

      China’s economy has been built on brutal exploitation of slave labor, open theft of Western intellectual property through economic blackmail, an extreme fascist control of private industry, and a tightly controlled middle class that has highly curtailed freedoms and civil rights, revoked should they even for a second go against the Central Party.

      So what Immelt admires is a highly profitable brutal fascist regime built upon the slaughter and exploitation of tens of millions of human beings. Just peachy.

    • keyesforpres

      Watch the video I posted on this thread and check out your glorious central planning…….

    • Bwahhahhahhah! Hundreds of modern ghost cities developed over the past 20 years with NO ONE living there.


      China’s real estate bubble is 100x America’s bubble and they have a currency that has never been measured against the other world currencies. China is about to crash – hard.

      • Nukeman60

        I’ve got to agree with you. It’s about to happen. Let’s hope Obama doesn’t get the same idea and rebuild Detroit the same way. Tons of new skyscrapers that the drug lords can occupy for their home bases.

    • The government’s economy has been doing well. The people? Well, that’s another story. I will give China some credit for allowing free markets to work within their communist dictatorship, but the last part of that statement kinda negates the moral legitimacy of the first part.

  • keyesforpres

    This video is dedicated to the 100 MILLION PLUS souls MURDERED in the name of Communism…


    • A very revealing and depressing video. All people who think Communism or Socialism is “cool” should be forced to sit and watch this and then asked just what is “cool” about forced labor and genocide, etc. See if you can get through their thick heads why Commies are NOT “cool” but psychopathic lunatics.

  • bjohnson55

    Oh My GOD!! This guy is the CEO of General Electric not just head of Obama’s job council. I am right now seriously considering my choice of where I make my living, thats right I work for this schmuck.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Brothers and sisters, you might as well bend over and get ready to receive a dose of state-run communism….because “it works” and its probably headed our way. But that’s what happens when a liberal, muslim-friendly person is put in the White House for another term. I’m still devastated by the fact that obama was reelected.

    • If they get our guns, the nightmare will come to America.

      • sDee

        Notice how it is freedom always comes down to the citizens? Who will defend our own freedom if not us?

        Is it any wonder leftists and tyrants universally despise the brilliance of our Founders? Too bad the elephants fail to understand the Second Amendment as clearly as the donkeys do.

        • Makes sense. The leftists fear our guns, therefor the want them, while the RINOs apparently just think that they are for hunting. I am curious to see how this new shooting in an Oregon mall turns out in the media. There is always an alternative media back story to watch for as well.

          • sDee

            Two thumbs up for the NRA!

            • The only thing that sucks about it is that the judge gave “lawmakers” six more months to trample on the rights of the Illinois citizenry. Since the supreme court allowed for virtually any regulation, along with the right have guns ruling, they will have six months to figure out how to counter the ruling with regulation.

      • DCGere

        Get my guns? What guns? 🙂 Hang on folks, going to get uglier no doubt.

  • stage9

    This is why I call them marxists. Because they are.

  • warpmine

    Crony Capitalism may not be your cup of tea but it….still doesn’t work even in Obama’s fantasy utopia.

  • Immelt is a socialist marxist idiot..   The Communist Chinese govt works , only in the eyes of the Chinese govt..    Ask the Chinese people if they are better off under a communist dictatorship.

    If not for Ding XiaoPing, there would not have been a change to a more Capitalist economic system replacing Mao’s agrarian communist economic system. Thus it is Capitalism that saved China’s economy, the Chinese people, and ultimately the communist govt from collapse, and Not the Communist form of govt itself..

    The Big Lie – the Ruse, that Marxist Leninist Stalinist Maoist Communist despotic tyrant dictators always use, is what they represent, and all that they do, is of, and for “the People”, is all
    BUT about the People – eg; The People’s Republic of China- how ironically oxymoronic is that, which by using those words, they have perverted the very meaning of, which they- the Chinese Communist govt are all about tyrannical oppressive rule over the people, in the name of the people- ie; the Big Lie.

    And of course, the Chinese govt exploits this massive Capitalist profit making for itself, stealing whatever they can, using the massive money to feed and supply the massive Chinese Communist govt’s military expansion expotentially, as we have seen it doing of late, just as the Imperial Japanese govt did in the 1920’s and 30’s, which inevitably went to war.
    Ironic isn’t it, Mr Immelt..

    With liberal socialist marxist idiots like Immelt and Obama, it’s no wonder America is headed down the marxist tubes.

  • ApplePie101

    Well, Fascism works, too. So does slavery.

    • Joengima

      I want to disagree with you, and In my soul I do. But I keep hearing all of these “Mussolini was great!” stories from my Italian grandparents, and it bugs me out.

      • ApplePie101

        The question was not whether it was right or wrong, but whether it ‘works’, and since Jeffrey Immelt is willing to overlook mass murder and slave labor in the case of communist China, he can’t deny that Nazi Germany and the antebellum South ‘worked’ just as well, according to his standard.

  • Joengima

    Ironically, China’s economy is actually capitalistic. Granted it’s a State Capitalism so like looking at the US through the mirror darkly.

    See, the reason businesses love China, is because, the Communist Government actually wants “Job growth” because it means “Power+Happy Citizens.”

    The US used to be about “Growing the Economy” bust now we’re like Europe.

  • WordsFailMe

    China doesn’t have a hereditary underclass of victims to support.


  • deeme

    Seriously I never thought this country would be so willingly taken over by communism..I guess I should of seen it coming just watching their tactics , their propaganda and the willing media and takers who care not for future generations or even freedom…They hate frreedom of speech when their own aren’t doing it..Can you imagine if teapartiers had gone to Michigan and beat up one of theirs and tore down their tents..?? What I have witnessed in the last couple of weeks between the, union thugs the progressive Christmas haters how come that’s never a hate crime the way Christians are treated…what happened at the DMV …a guy comes in wearing a golf shirt with his son, he needs four forms of id…a lady comes in from Jamiaca she needs her green card and a passport..What in the heck is going on here/ ? We are losing our country ..no war needed..it’s already been taken over..

  • Sure communism works-it works well for those in charge of everyone else’s life!

  • Yazz55

    If communism works so well, how does it explain that the USSR imploded and China is becoming a successful free market economy?

    • notebene

      China’s markets may be free, but citizens are not. They are enslaved to a government that controls every aspect of their lives. The lazy leaders in our government want the money, but more importantly they want the people of this nation on their knees and at their service.

    • sDee

      See my posts here. China is not a free market economy.

      State Capitalism is a refinement in the art by tyrants of fascism.

  • BS61

    I guess that I shouldn’t have been laughing at Glenn Beck’s show GE, we bring evil to life!

  • Ken_H

    Actually China has not been communist in a long time. They moved to fascism when the communism didn’t work out.They are more capitalistic than we are and the fact that they basically have slave labor only improves their competitiveness. I don’t advocate how they treat folks, it is just a fact.

  • Terry

    Lenin had a five year plan. Stalin had a five year plan. Even the Russians are no longer trying to “build Communism”. They learned their lesson. Why are Americans trying to adopt a failed system??? China’s system does NOT work. Morons!

  • Rocco11

    Dump your GE stock just for general purpose…

  • Well, that makes all the sense in the world. When you have a socialist/communist as president, it’s only logical that his favorite CEO wants to base the American economy on China’s. Makes perfect sense. Hey, but Americans re-elected Obama, so now they’re stuck with him for four more years. Elections do have consequences and the biggest one will be seeing more CEOs like this one slither into the White House on a regular basis.

  • Now we know why NObama didn’t bother to meet up with his “jobs council.” They all just think like him.

    Communism = good
    Capitalism = bad
    4 legs = good
    2 legs = bad!

    AS Old Major said in Animal Farm:
    Beasts of England, beasts of Ireland,
    Beasts of every land and clime,
    Hearken well and spread my tidings
    Of the golden future time

    Soon and late the day is coming,
    Tyrant Man shall be o’erthrown,
    And the fruitful fields of England
    Shall be trod by beasts alone

    Rings shall vanish from our noses,
    And the harness from our back,
    Bit and spur shall rust forever,
    Cruel whips no more shall crack

    And we all know who well the “revolution” turned out for Old Major don’t we? This is what happens when good intentions and idealism meets the reality that is Communism, Fascism and Stateism.

    GE= Gigantically Evil
    Immelt – a Most USEFUL IDIOT!!!

  • jleinf

    Wonder how well it would work if Obama did everything he could to bring jobs and industry BACK to America? I bet it would fail big time.

  • Conniption Fitz

    It works if you don’t mind forced abortions, forced labor, no value of human life, no freedom, being ruled over by heartless evil people with all the power.

    To make money FOR THE STATE, Chinese powers that be, have sacrificed whole villages to dig rare but toxic minerals make solar panels. Whole villages, including children, have died from cancer from polluted water, soil, air….

  • notebene

    The current leadership, a laughable description of what they are supposed to be, is a lazy group of thugs. They like communism pushed on the people because then they have power without the work. If the people don’t have a voice, it is so much easier to control and exploit them for their own greedy gain. It is shameful that people were stupid enough to buy into another four years of this! I’m not a republican fan, but now the democrats are on full on progressive marxism push because the election win has emboldened them to believe they are in the driver’s seat. They are throwing the checks and balances of our system of government out the window in order to push into power an evil form of government.

    Worst CEO in history and has done NOTHING for GE but suck up to Communism…..because his philosophy….and GE who pays no taxes…..MONEY IS MONEY!

  • mikeinidaho

    No surprise here! Immelt is a communist sympathizer and works for Obama and his band of thug traitors in DC. I wonder when he’ll start voluntarily paying the “proper” amount of taxes. As I recall, GE payed NO taxes last year due to legal loopholes. A proper communist would never allow that to happen. Come on Immelt, you traitor, stand up for what you believe in and pay the government 100% of what you earn!

  • Biggbear52

    Just in the last two years the whole of the European theater has turned from communistic totalitarian run Government’s to Conservative Capitalistic one’s and have done nothing but grow since doing so. In fact the U.S and a few other Countries are the only ones in declined because of recent socialist agenda’s and movements. Even the FREAK Fidel Castro has admitted that COMMUNISM does not and could never work. His own words! Michiel Gorbachov said virtually the same thing in 1983 when meeting with the President Reagan. Nuff Said!!
