These people HAVE to go

Gene Sperling, director of the White House’s national economic council.

What are Eurocrats doing in the White House

James Delingpole is rooting for Obama in the hope that in the next election, 2016, we might get a small government conservative.

That may be too late.

    You tax people in your country Gene, but please, stay the hell away from my pockets since I don’t even get a vote in your country.

    Fuck you, Sperling.

    Who is this “we”, exactly? You? You and your political schmoozer pals, raking in half of all the wealth your country creates at gunpoint, while you sit back in your well-appointed DC offices and order yet more “sacrifice” for – Jesus bloody Christ it’s like Hitler and Stalin never died – “the greater good”?

    “Greater good”, bollocks. They’re sacrificing to you. You and your governmental henchmen, who are spending their money – their money, that they earned – like a pimp with a week to live (h/t Jonah Goldberg). So how about you sacrifice something for a change, you obnoxious greasy homunculus?

    Like your damn job.

    Cats, I think you’re right. I completely understand what Dellers is saying, but we’re two years further into this fiasco than we were at the time of the British election. “Anyone but Brown” was a mistake – he should have been made to take responsibility for the mess, and perhaps a small-government alternative would have emerged from the failure of Eurodave’s “heir to Blair” project – but giving the Obama mob another four years is just too dangerous. It might already be too late by next January; waiting till 2016/7 is just crazy.

    Well Obama is gonna win anyway. By the way I’m listening to that pussy Cameron sucking Salmond’s cock and he is talking utter shi’ite. He is praising Scotland for Reith and the BBC! Fuck-buggery. He’s got a Scottish grandfather you know. So fucking what! I have an ancestor from Wisconsin. A cowboy no less! Paddy M, born 1815 in Donegal. But seriously Reith! I mean for fuck’s sake if any bastard ever retarded the development of broadcast media…

  4. Sam Duncan says:

    Reith’s father was chaplain of the Free Kirk College. I mean, you hardly need to know any more. With a background like that, it’s a wonder he even existed. “Brace yourself, Morag, we’re doing the Lord’s work here…”

    When my dad first joined his present church, 40-odd years ago, some of the members had met him (it was founded as a mission of the College). By all accounts he was barking mad and thoroughly unpleasant.

  5. John Galt says:

    No, I have absolutely no problem with this.

    If the US want to institute a mechanism by which US resident companies have to pay a minimum amount of tax around the world then fair enough – as long as it only applies to US resident companies.

    We all know perfectly well that some of the companies will break themselves up to separate their US and international divisions, others will restructure in such a way that they avoid the rules, whilst the larger ones will lobby senate and congress for exemptions.

    Net effect will be that the US tax code will put on a few more inches, Obama can announce that he’s been tough on corporate America, making it pay it’s way and protecting US jobs moving abroad.

    Net additional contribution to the US Treasury, not one dime – in actual fact it will probably cause a small number of companies to move completely outside of the US and a larger number of new companies will be created in more business friendly environments like Switzerland and even (god forbid) the UK and Ireland.

    So go for it Gene, it’s the same old bollocks we’ve heard before.

    I’ve got a Scottish grandfather. Well, I had one, he died before I was born. He was apparently a misrable Presybyterian git as well.

    I love James Delingpole. He is so right so many times, I have to pinch myself to confirm that I’m not dreaming.
    America, the short-term pain of having obama returned to power, so you can forcefully eject the socialist/muslim anomaly is far better than enduring one or two terms of a Cameron clone.
    The sensible actions of a government that is committed to protecting its citizens would be to : reduce taxes, stop spending and raise interest rates.

    We live in a world that is afflicted by the same socialist disease. I hope I live to read the history books of our epoch so that I can rest peacefully in my grave, knowing that I was right and the socialists were so viciously and malignantly wrong.

  8. Kevin B says:

    Dellers is wrong on this one. If Romney or Santorum gets the job and there’s a decent conservative caucus in the House and Senate, then Congress can claw back some power from the administration and also reduce the size of the state.

    If Obama wins, he’s already shown his penchant for riding roughshod over the constitution, including the separation of powers. Four more years of Obama’s DOJ, EPA, both DoEs, NLRB, FDA and on and on, will wreck the US and with it any chance of a world economic recovery. (Oh, and don’t forget how old some of those SCOTUS judges are.)

    He’s also shown himself very adept, or at least shameless, at blaming anything that goes wrong on anyone but himself, and his media asskissers have been happy to parrot his excuses.

    What makes Dellers, or anyone else, think that after four more years of Obama and his lackeys blaming everything wrong on Congress and claiming credit for the few things that go right, the American people will be ready to elect a conservative president, a conserative senate and a conservative congress. Which is what is needed if the US is to be saved.

    No, this year is it, so the least those that wish America well can do is use every ounce of persuasion they have to try to get a conservative congress and, at least, a republican president.

  9. Mr Ecks says:

    With the exception of Ron Paul all the GOP candidates have the same relationship to Obo that our own gerbil-faced blue labour twat has to Bliar and Brown. That is to say a watered down clone.

    Big economic trouble is on the way. Since Ron Paul probably isn’t going to be picked for the candidate it might be better if Obo is in when it hits the fan. Might.

    “What are Eurocrats doing in the White House”

    Begging?

  11. Write here says:

    Here’s a small item of info. I am a British citizen but I have paid tax to the US while living in this country. Here’s how: I write a slim volume that appears on for sale on Lulu, an American company. If the book sells anywhere in the world outside the States I get whatever price I have set, minus a fee to Lulu for hosting/printing it.

    If the book however is bought in the States the USA takes a small amount of tax from me, an author who is not a US citizen.

    I expect Lulu.com pays tax to their own government, which I do understand, from all the money derived from author fees, no matter where they are. Fair enough.

    But if I am going to be taxed by America then I want a say in their election process. Something from ages ago about a tea party in Boston harbour, if I recall correctly.

    (If I did vote in the US elections it would not be for Obumble, but I have to say he seems odds-on winner)

  12. Bill Sticker says:

    Don’t his remarks only refer to US companies and taxpayers?

  13. CountingCats says:

    what part of
    we need a global minimum tax so that people have the assurance that nobody is escaping doing their fair share as part of a race to the bottom
    is American only?

    Lets abolish tax competition between countries is what he is saying. A progressives dream, but no one is picking that up.

  14. Tim Newman says:

    I just can’t think why Transocean and Halliburton, to name two enormous American corporations, choose to headquarter themselves in Switzerland and the UAE respectively.

  15. Paul Marks says:

    I do not want to depess people….. (O.K. perhaps I do) but Gene is a moderate in the Obama court (he really is).

    Most of the others are worse – much worse.

    And the Obama people are just the local chapter of the international collectivist elite.

    “If Obama wins in 2012 we will get a free market conservative in 2016″.

    James my dear lad – you really do not understand the nature of what the world faces.
