Obama’s Big Government and Big Business vs. We the People

Google Helps NSA Spy
Yesterday, CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie detailed how Big Business, particularly internet search giant Google, cooperate with the National Security Agency to bypass the Fourth Amendment and other privacy safeguards to permit the surveillance of law abiding Americans.

Today, a variety of news sources have reported that key employees of some of these same megacorporations have been enlisted to help fix the failed ObamaCare website.

If you read or viewed the establishment media you might have gained the impression that these corporate giants were hired – if they were actually “hired” we’d like to see the contracts and know under what authority the deals were done – but a close reading of the news reports suggests that they are actually volunteers.

According to Bloomberg News, “Google Inc., Red Hat Inc., Oracle Corp. and other technology companies are contributing dozens of computer engineers and programmers to help the Obama administration fix the U.S. health-insurance exchange website.”

The Bloomberg article went on to note that Michael Dickerson, a site reliability engineer on leave from Google, and Greg Gershman, innovation director for smartphone application maker Mobomo, are among those helping the Obama administration.

Likewise, Oracle Chief Executive Officer Larry Ellison said yesterday at the software maker’s annual meeting. “I know it’s [the failed ObamaCare website] a very political topic... As an information technology company we are doing everything we can to help.”

This should not really come as a surprise, because the close links between Obama’s Big Government and Big Business are there in the public record for everyone to see.

A quick look at the Federal Election Commission reports reveals the fact that some of the same megacorporations that cooperate with the NSA to invade your privacy, and have now volunteered to help fix the failed ObamaCare website, are also home to some of President Barack Obama’s largest political donors.

Donors associated with Google (not the corporation itself) contributed some $817,855 to Obama, with the broader tech and internet industry contributing $9,744,738 to Obama’s re-election effort according to a report by opensecrets.org.

How is it that Big Business that the establishment media constantly sells as being a bastion of conservatism and favoring the Republican Party, could be behind Obama and his Big Government policies?

Simple – Big Government is good for Big Business because by its very nature it impedes new entrants into the market and because it can be, through lobbying and cronyism, used to hobble competitors.

And it can also be used to advance policies that shift costs away from shareholders and on to the broader taxpaying public – by say establishing a single payer health care system and lowering labor costs through open borders and liberal immigration policies.

Our friend Matthew Boyle over at Breitbart has a great article about the relationships between this Big Business – Big Surveillance – Big Government – Open Borders gang.

The key point in Boyle’s article comes in this quote:

“Obamacare and the immigration push are inextricably linked,” the [senior Republican] aide said in an email Thursday afternoon, specifically referencing the news of amnesty lobbyists getting hired to help Obama fix healthcare.gov <http://healthcare.gov> . "Both are vehicles to expand the power of the hard left, increase the scope of the welfare state, and to hand more power to government bureaucrats and corporate cronies. Both are legacy items for the President. Both are both being used as voter registration drives. Both are intentionally over-complex, so that [they] can be implemented by federal regulators unaccountable to Congress. This news also raises serious privacy concerns: the administration has announced that illegal aliens’ Obamacare information cannot be used against them for legal purposes, but no similar guarantee has been made for US citizens.”

Had these companies been hired to help fix the ObamaCare website we would not be quite so outraged – after all corporations have a fiduciary obligation to their shareholders to make a return on the shareholders’ investment and shouldn't turn down a legal profit making opportunity – however, it is clear that the relationship between Big Business and Obama’s Big Government has now gone way beyond the government customer – government vendor relationship.

The battle between Barack Obama’s Big Government and limited government constitutional conservatives began the day he was sworn in and has grown fiercer by the day. For us to win this battle we must remember who Obama’s most potent allies are – the Big Businesses that benefit the most from his Big Government policies.

hooray I'm all for the 50,000,000 bill

If the coop's are trying to run the Idiots in DC let them pay for it.
What really bothers me is the insurance companies the laergest industry in the world are bowing to OBAMA. I guess the have no guts. Or have something bigger up their sleeves for more profit?

big business

If the President (and Congress and obviously the S.C.) are simply the lackeys of the moneyed interests, then presumably we need a Constitutional amendment which will confiscate all personal wealth in excess of $50,000,000 per person. Since this will affect less than 0.02% of the population and we the people (not the shills and sharks) can designate the use of the windfall, it's a win for the USA!

Huh?
