Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) has been attending Job Fairs sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus (paid for by taxpayers?) during her August break. She has gotten a lot of press attention (detailed below). Just a few days after asking attendees to “unleash” her, Barack Obama issued an Executive Order, ordering federal hiring to be more diversified. He also ordered a ‘super committee’ to figure out how to do it, and he wants all the guidelines done in 120 days. The Government generally can’t do anything in 120 days unless it’s something unconstitutional. No doubt this a big part of the jobs plan he will release in September. No doubt an “unleashed” Waters ordered Obama to get this diversity on (also known as social justice).
Executive order 13583 creates a council of deputy agency chiefs and federal workers charged with developing a government-wide plan to improve diversity in recruitment, training, and promotion of federal workers, all due within 90 days. After that, each federal agency will have 120 days to develop guidelines of their own. Source: Business Insider
Note in the above, “promotions” are to be diversified as well as general hiring.
For Maxine Waters, it began with Detroit and a crowd very angry that there were no jobs, and angry that the Obama Black Beast Bus tour did not include Black communities. Up to this moment, Waters routinely protected Obama. Before the meeting was over, she asked for the attendees PERMISSION to “unleash” her.They gave it to her, so now she is after the TEA Party and there is video here of Waters in her sparkly cowboy hat, telling the TEA Party to “go to hell,” and saying she would help them get there. Less than inspiring from an elected official of a country guided by a Constitution intended to protect them from big government. Less than inspiring that her constituents continue to vote for the ethically-challenged Maxine Waters, who is a member of the Democrat Socialists of America, embarrassingly threatened to “nationalize” the oil industry, and was palpably instrumental in bringing down the housing market with her posturing and threats:
We continue today, in August 2009, to promote irresponsible home loans backed by the U.S. government, as we did all through the time that Barack Obama sat in the U.S. Senate and supported his comrades, Barney Frank, ChrisDodd and Maxine Waters in the sham of providing sub-prime home loans for those who could not qualify. Blame who you want for the economic downturn, the truth is, it was the legislation known as the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) that allowed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to flood the country far and wide with loans for inflated real estate to people should have been renting. It continues now – the “government,” the FHA, is still providing home loans to buyers with bad credit, no credit…
