Obama Negative 2.0: Mass layoffs begin

It is with a heavy heart that I watch the meting out of the punishment America so enthusiastically voted for. These are the parents of the fascist-loving youth who helped put Obama over the top. Boy, are they in for a rude awakening. Buckle up, folks, this is going to be brutal.

And it’s only just begun. Obama owns it all. I wonder if Obama is going to outspend his 2008 unprecedented inaugural costs for the autocrat’s ball. And how much for Meesh Antoinette’s myriad costume changes?

Four more years!

BRUSSELS BANS CHRISTMAS TREES because they are offensive to Muslims

Who’s next? London, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Dearborn? Until last year there was an annual Christmas tree standing in the center of the Grote Market in Brussels. Councillor Bianca Debaets regrets that this year the traditional Market tree will not be there. “I suspect that the reference to the Christian religion was the decisive factor,” she added.

The City has announced that there will be no tree at the Grote Markt this year. It will be replaced by an exhibit of lights that looks like an Evergreen tree. Debaets is not happy with that decision as she sees Christmas being gradually replaced by “Winter Celebration’ terminology. “Not that the Christmas tree is a Christian religious symbol, but the tree obviously is a reference to Christmas itself, which is why it has been banished from the Market. And that’s a shame. “
Debaets think a historical and multireligious city should keep the historical traditions alive while allowing all ideologies (even the violent ones like Islam?). “For a lot of people (Muslims) who are not Christians, the tree there is offensive to them,” she concluded.

Murder of San Diego Iraqi Muslim woman, Shaima Alawadi, NOT an ‘Islamophobic’ hate crime, but a homicide by the husband

Readers of BNI knew that the likely murderer of Shaima Alawadi was a member of her own family, and not an Islamophobe as CAIR’s Muslim apologists and the sharia-compliant mainstream media would have us believe.
NBC Investigators have arrested a family member in the violent murder of an El Cajon woman initially thought to be a hate crime. Shaima Alawadi, 32, was found bloodied and beaten inside her home on March 21. Her 17-year-old daughter Fatima found her on the floor of their dining room with a note nearby.

OH, BOO HOO! The husband/murderer who mugged for the media and shed crocodile tears for his dead wife
The death of Alawadi, an Iraqi immigrant, reverberated across the nation because her family claimed they found threatening notes in their home, calling them “terrorists.” El Cajon police investigators said they believed the killing was an isolated incident and records suggested Alawadi’s death may not have been a hate crime.
“After months of hard work, we determined that this homicide was a result of domestic violence,” El Cajon Police Chief Jim Redman said Friday. On Nov. 8, detectives arrested Kassim Al-Himidi, 48, on suspicion of the death of his wife.

Companies plan massive layoffs as Obamacare becomes reality

Freedom Works has put together a list of companies that will be laying off employees as a result of President Barack Obama’s health care law:

Welch Allyn

Welch Allyn, a company that manufactures medical diagnostic equipment in central New York, announced in September that they would be laying off 275 employees, or roughly 10% of their workforce over the next three years. One of the major reasons discussed for the layoffs was a proactive response to the Medical Device Tax mandated by the new healthcare law.

Dana Holding Corp.

As recently as a week ago, a global auto parts manufacturing company in Ohio known as Dana Holding Corp., warned their employees of potential layoffs, citing “$24 million over the next six years in additional U.S. health care expenses”. After laying off several white collar staffers, company insiders have hinted at more to come. The company will have to cover the additional $24 million cost somehow, which will likely equate to numerous cuts in their current workforce of 25,500 worldwide.


One of the biggest medical device manufacturers in the world, Stryker will close their facility in Orchard Park, New York, eliminating 96 jobs in December. Worse, they plan on countering the medical device tax in Obamacare by slashing 5% of their global workforce – an estimated 1,170 positions.

Boston Scientific

In October of 2009, Boston Scientific CEO Ray Elliott, warned that proposed taxes in the health care reform bill could “lead to significant job losses” for his company. Nearly two years later, Elliott announced that the company would be cutting anywhere between 1,200 and 1,400 jobs, while simultaneously shifting investments and workers overseas – to China.

Barack Obama: America Voted for Tax Hikes

President Barack Obama makes remarks on the “fiscal cliff” in the East Room of the White House. (The Ticket)

Citing a mandate, far left President Obama told reporters today that America voted for tax hikes this week.
The Ticket reported:

Claiming a mandate from his election romp over Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama announced on Friday that he had invited congressional leaders to the White House next week for talks on how to steer the battered economy away from a “fiscal cliff.” Obama said he was open to compromise with Republicans—but that any final deal needed to raise taxes on the richest Americans.

“This was a central question during the election,” the president said in brief remarks in the East Room of the White House. “It was debated over and over again, and on Tuesday night we found out that a majority of Americans agree with my approach.

CIA Director David Petraeus Resigns From Post Over Extramarital Affair

CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus resigned from his post after admitting to having an extramarital affair.

In a statement to CIA employees Friday, Petraeus said he submitted his resignation to President Barack Obama on Thursday and Obama accepted it Friday afternoon.

“After being married for over 37 years I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair,” Petreaus said. “Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.”

Fox News reported the affair was with his biographer and was discovered during the course of an FBI investigation on an “unrelated and much broader case.” According to Fox, journalist and biographer Paula Broadwell’s name came up during the investigation, which led to uncovering the affair. The FBI had reportedly been concerned Petraeus might be some sort of victim, but no evidence to substantiate that has been uncovered.

Obama said in a statement Petraeus “has provided extraordinary service to the United States for decades” and that his lifetime of service “has made our country safer and stronger.”

Obama added that he has the utmost confidence in CIA Acting Director Michael Morell and that his “thoughts and prayers are with Dave and Holly Petraeus.” Holly Petraeus serves in the Obama administration as part of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Louisiana residents petition to secede

On Nov. 6, Americans voted to return Barack Obama to the White House; then on Nov. 7, some folks in Louisiana petitioned the White House to peaceably withdraw their state from the Union.


According to the White House website, the petition was created by Michael E. (full last name not provided) of Slidell, La., the day after the election and has since been electronically signed by a few hundred people, most – but not all – of whom hail from the Pelican State.

“We petition the Obama administration to: Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government,” the petition reads.

It continues, “As the Founding Fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776: ‘When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.’”

The petition concludes with a further quote from the Declaration of Independence: “‘Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government.’”

After Obama reelection, Murray Energy CEO reads prayer, announces layoffs

For the chairman and chief executive of Murray Energy, an Ohio-based coal company, the reelection of President Obama was no cause for celebration. It was a time for prayer — and layoffs.

Robert E. Murray read a prayer to a group of company staff members on the day after the election, lamenting the direction of the country and asking: “Lord, please forgive me and anyone with me in Murray Energy Corp. for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build.”

On Wednesday, Murray also laid off 54 people at American Coal, one of his subsidiary companies, and 102 at Utah American Energy, blaming a “war on coal” by the Obama administration.

Murray Energy is the country’s largest privately owned coal mining company, with about 3,000 employees producing about 30 million tons of bituminous coal a year, according to its Web site.

The company was the subject of an article in the New Republic that said the firm forced miners to attend a Romney campaign speech in southeastern Ohio in August. Murray denied the account. The New Republic also reported that Murray Energy employees have given more than $1.4 million to Republican candidates for federal office since 2007.

Murray has been a target of environmentalists. Notably, the company has spilled coal slurry into a creek on seven occasions.

Murray’s prayer from Wednesday first appeared on the Web site of the Intelligencer/ Wheeling News-Register. The newspaper said Murray supplied his text. The Postconfirmed its legitimacy with a company spokesman, Gary M. Broadbent.
