Sheila Jackson Lee: Writing Executive Orders for Obama to Sign ‘Our Number One Agenda’

Patrick Howley, Daily Caller, February 4, 2014

Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said that the new Congressional Full Employment Caucus will “give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign.”


“We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work and we’re not doing right by them by creating work,” the Texas congresswoman said. “I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength,” Jackson said Jan. 29 at a press conference where she and fellow Democrats launched the Full Employment Caucus.

“In fact, I think that should be our number one agenda. Let’s write up these executive orders—draft them, of course—and ask the president to stand with us on full employment,” Jackson Lee added.


The Full Employment Caucus, a new job-oriented working group, was created by Democrats including Rep. John Conyers Jr., Rep. Maxine Waters, Rep. Charles Rangel, Rep. Frederica Wilson, Rep. Barbara Lee, Rep. Jose Serrano, Rep. Mike Quigley, and Jackson Lee.

    Sheila Jackson Lee couldn’t write an executive order if her life depended on it, at least not anything more complicated than “givs us dat”.

    • sbuffalonative

      She can write them but they’re absurd and unworkable.

      Executive order for full employment.

      The scary thing is she believes writing such an order would work.

      • SFLBIB

        “Executive order for full employment.”

        Sounds like Camelot. Just change a few words:

        …The crown has made it clear.
        The climate must be perfect all the year.

        A law was made a distant moon ago here:
        July and August cannot be too hot.
        And there’s a legal limit to the snow here
        In Camelot.

        The winter is forbidden till December
        And exits March the second on the dot.
        By order, summer lingers through September
        In Camelot.
        Camelot! Camelot!

      “…the new Congressional Full Employment Caucus will “give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign.”

      What amazes me is that no one in the media is asking why obama didn’t just sign an EO for obamacare instead of going through congress.

      • How bad is Obama getting with his rule by edict?

        Even Rush Limbaugh halfway jokingly halfway not suggested today that Obama would executive order his way into a third term or the lifetime Presidency. Not so long ago he would have called someone who thought this would happen a conspiracykook.

        • SFLBIB

          Do you think Hillary would stand for being snookered a second time?

          • I don’t think she will be the Democrat nominee.

            Remember, she was supposed to be inevitable in 2008 as well.

            What happened?

            It wasn’t just for Obama’s blackness. I think she has a lot of taboo baggage and there are other taboo factors not her fault, all related to gender sociology. They appeared in 2008, and they will appear again in 2016. Also, I think a lot of Democrats are none too happy with the Clinton machine’s new found propensity to keep a list (of friends and enemies) and check it twice.

          • SFLBIB

            I hope you are right, but do think you are under-estimating the Clintons.

  • D.B. Cooper

    I live in the Houston area. Sheila Jackson Lee’s area of influence has always been a prime, 100% PERFECT example of black leadership, complete with failing schools, dead malls, and daily shootings.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Gee, if we restored merit to our civil services half the black middle class would disappear within one to three years. Legitimate public work is already staffed as if it were makework when it comes to minorities.

      Guess we can look forward to publicly funded step show coordinators and hair braiders and psychics, and shuckin’ an jivin’ specialists.

      • Berkeley Guy

        What would a shuckin’ an jivin’ specialist actually do?

        • NeanderthalDNA

          Yer guess is as good as mine…

          Probably consulting?

    • Brian

      I feel you. Down in my neck of the woods we have Hank Johnson– you remember the guy who thought Guam might tip over…

    • blight14

      I submit that the term ‘black leadership’ is an oxymoron………

    • Major

      Dem yoof just need mo munny, right? nomsain?

  • Rhialto

    Methinks the Blacks are a bit late in putting pressure on their president for gimmedats. The 2012 election is history, and Obama doesn’t care about Black voter turnout anymore.

    He can now concentrate on White male destruction, which means massive non-White immigration, which means economic hardships for many Blacks. TS Babycatkes!

  • Obama has had two executive orders so far since his promised barrage of EOs at the State of the Union, both are a whole lot of hat and not much in the way of cattle.

    His EO requiring a $10.10 minimum wage for people employed by Federal contracts can’t even apply to current contracts, and technically it’s just a suggestion related to the negotiation of future contracts, it can’t be a hard and fast mandate.

    His EO requiring Federal hiring not to discriminate against the long term unemployed is also fluff. So a lot of the LTUE apply for Federal jobs, thinking they’ll get hired, but they don’t. Good luck winning a discrimination lawsuit. All this will do is increase the number of applications and resumes for Federal jobs that will be thrown away.

    I think that the rest of these EOs will be the same kind of meaningless useless fluff.

  • sbuffalonative

    I was watching c-span’s Washington Journal last week and they were discussing Obama’s executive orders.

    Blacks calling in thought the President had every right to sign any executive order he damn well pleased.

    Blacks really believe the office of the President is that of a dictator.

    • dd121

      I’m sure that a lot of his dictatorial, unconstitutional executive orders will be challenged in the courts. My question is what happens to our little Republic if the socialist courts start upholding his dictatorship.

      • “My question is what happens to our little Republic is the socialist courts start upholding his dictatorship” – That comment nails it as the crux of our worst concerns. Obama then would be able to make law whatever he wants, and our socialist courts would gladly uphold it. In a saner era, our federal courts had greater fidelity to the Constitution and a charlatan like Obama could never get away with such things, but we no longer live in sane times.

        • dd121

          The Founders did make reference to this possibility. Please refer to the 2nd amendment.

      • SFLBIB

        They don’t have to. Part of the Alinsky strategy is to overload the system … and not just of welfare applicants.

  • Truthseeker

    It’s almost as if…third world descendents would rather be ruled by a dictator or something.

    • sbuffalonative

      Blacks believe the President has Super Powers to ‘pass’ any law. They believe that the only thing preventing Obama from being the greatest President ever is racist Republicans.

      • MekongDelta69

        You mean No’Bongo has Super Powers?!!

        Wow – That is lyke totally sooooo coooool.

        (I’ll be right back. I have to put on some more war paint and ululate around the camp fire some more.)

      • dd121

        It’s a pretty useless exercise to try to interpret how the negro “thinks” much less how they see the complexities of law and the constitution.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Can you imagine what a trip into the world of the ‘black mind’ would likely be?

          • dd121

            It’s a place where magic reigns.

      • MooTieFighter

        I agree. Blacks now talk politics more since Obama has been in office and it is rather obvious that they have always thought the president can do ANYTHING he wishes, and to stop him is racist. Very obvious that they do not understand how our system works, at all.

        • SFLBIB

          Au contrair; I think they understand very well how our system works.

      • John Smith

        They’re correct since we no longer have a congress.

    • Alexandra1973

      Seems to me that such people are incompatible with a republican form of government.

  • So CAL Snowman

    I’m curious (not really) about what kind of jobs the Federal Employment Caucus thinks a BO EO can create (government jobs for $200 please Alex). The magical thinking of the black race is on full display here. Sheila Jackson Lee with her 80 IQ believes that the magic government can produce magic jobs that will make everything better. What Sheila Jackson Lee with her 80 IQ fails to understand is that government workers PRODUCE NOTHING. In order for government workers to get paid, taxes have to be levied on the private sector, you know the sector that actually PRODUCES TANGIBLE ASSETS. Magical government jobs and workers are parasitical entities by their very nature. They rely on non – government workers to survive. What blacks and liberals do not understand is that you cannot simply cure unemployment by giving everyone a government job because there are simply not enough productive private sector employees to provide for non-productive government employees. The cargo cult mentality of blacks never ceases to amaze me. It’s basic supply side economics. When you tax the producers to pay for the non producers EVERYONE gets less. When you lower the barriers to production by lowering taxes EVERYONE gets more.

    • Berkeley Guy

      Yeah, tangible assets are a real bummer. Can’t another EO be issued to create them though? I mean, whenever you have N amount of EO’s, and you find a problem with one or more of them (say a number of M EO’s need reworking), then you just write N + M EO’s and problem solved. But say that the EO system breaks down for some reason. Well, alakazam you can just print tangible but oh-so-fickle-in-value dollars. And what about plastic cards that are given away that somehow have value stored in them digitally and magnetically? Can’t we just print more of them too? Alright then, but what if none of the above works? No worries because we just start redistributing wealth. I mean, it was the people who created value who somehow destroyed value for others, right? Right? All of them must be guilty of being smart and driven and motivated and stuff. And when that stops working just increase immigration and encourage people to have more babies and never mind social harmony or the basic services that need to be in place to support an influx of new people.

  • NotTooSwift

    Remember, this is the same intellectual who thought the Apollo Astronauts planted Old Glory on Mars.

    • Whirlwinder

      And she stated that she was a recently released slave. Who let out the dogs!!!!

      • Whitetrashgang

        Just wait till WT on Mars and the tribe run slave ships start showing up

      • shmo123

        She did? Oh that’s rich. I’ll bet she was bought at a red light sale down at the local slave-mart. Or maybe she was released because they had a no returns policy. In any case, the fact that morons like her and Maxine Watters are getting paid by the American taxpayer is equivalent to all the reparations whites should ever have to pay.

    • blight14

      AND referred to East/West Vietman!

  • Tarczan

    This is not that idiotic in light of the Feds’ actions. Of the $3.5 trillion spent annually by the government, about $2.5 trillion of it is just made up, by the fed typing zeros in their computers and then using that money to buy government bonds.The actual numbers may vary, but it’s not too far off.

    All this talk of tapering is not believable, it will be almost impossible to stop these purchases and then let interest rates rise enough to entice people and other governments to buy bonds.

    So given that, just print some more and give it to the darkies. Put a AA coordinator in every town school and county; make them all darkies, pay them 6 figures.

    It will end the gravy train just a little bit quicker.

  • Dave4088

    I’m thinking Obozo and the hideous Sheila Jackson Lee are taking executive order suggestions from the NAACP, The Nation of Islam and the New Black Panther Party. The Republicans, as usual, don’t want to antagonize the Marxist media or be called racist, so are in hiding.

    On second thought Rand Paul is somewhere in the Detroit ghetto exhorting blacks to unleash the libertarian within.

    • Who Me?

      ALL blacks are secret Libertarians, since Libertarians believe a person should be free to do any damn thing they feel like doing.

  • Druid

    Here’s the scoop. o’bama is what he is, but congress can kill these executive orders by not funding them. Obviously, Boehner and the other lousy traitors in congress will fund everything he wants.

  • Spartacus

    Separation of the legislative and the executive – African style !

  • Robert Binion

    This would be a story if Rep. Lee were not seeking handouts–curious behavior like that of the dog that barked not in the tales of Sherlock Holmes.

  • Lewis33

    The only way they are going to get full employment for blacks is to re-institute slavery.

    • benvad

      Now that comment is a “keeper” Ha!
      Almost as good as “Lounge lizards at war”

  • bigone4u

    More magical thinking by blacks. It never ends. Let the Zulu chief issue an order and the moon will turn purple in their minds. When you hear “minority” politicians talking about jobs, they’re talking more government and more affirmative action. These people are idiots with the minds of children.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Yep, which is why the franchise should have been restricted to white males only. Now Reconstruction II is an bigger disaster than the first Reconstruction. When will these liberals ever learn?

  • shmo123

    That woman couldn’t pour p*** out of a boot with the directions written on the heel, and she’s going to miraculously bring about full-employment by “creating” jobs. With geniuses like John Conyers and Maxine Waters on her side, and maybe some help from the Wizard himself, she can’t possibly fail.

  • Luca

    If not for insane liberal policies, political correctness and low IQ negroes this woman would probably be qualified to sort mail or do hair.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Sort mail really, I would go more with cleaning windshields with a rag.

  • Kenner

    And of course, the taxpayer is on the hook for all those crayons.

  • MekongDelta69

    C’mon – ya gotta have a laugh anytime you read about some 75 IQ Congressional Idiotic black Caucus member mumbling about something or other.

    I think she was sent from Heaven. Her boss can stem the tide of the oceans (so he said), and she can simply snap her fingers and voila – jobs for everyone… I mean, every non-white person. (Sorry – I slipped up.)
    I’m tellin’ ya – It’s an outright miracle…

    • MooTieFighter

      It is amazing just to hear her talk. I am absolutely stunned someone lets her represent them. I would be embarrassed for her to represent my dog at a dog show.

      • bilderbuster

        Kneegrows have no concept of shame.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Or embarrassment.

  • Kenner

    Tell her they have to be in cursive.

  • NM156

    Does the Full Employment Caucus intend to stop immigration? No, so this is just a caucus to devise a way to shake down the white middle class in as many ways as possible and probably includes cooperation with Hispanic caucuses to figure out new ways of extorting jobs, taxes, and benefits from us.

  • Shawn_thefemale

    I’m impressed. Really. To know that she’s moved on from her fiery, years-long quest for the Congress to mandate that hurricanes must be named ethnic names such as Quantavious and LaShondrica gives me hope that eventually someone can get her to shut the heck up.

    • Alexandra1973

      Funny thing is, given how destructive hurricanes are, black names WOULD be suitable!

      And you’d still have people hollering “That’s racist! That’s implying blacks are destructive!”

      Maybe we should give them “ethnic” names….

      • Who Me?

        Love that, Alexandra!

  • WR_the_realist

    I look at the politicians white people elect and ask myself, “How can anyone claim that my race is intelligent?” Then I look at the politicians black people elect and I remain a staunch race realist.

  • John K

    She is unfit to be a high school janitor. She has been able to keep her congressional seat all these years simply because she has a district of black radicals intentionally carved out to keep her in office.

    • MooTieFighter

      your right. I can assure you if she was janitor the school would be in the worst shape it had ever been in in about a week. she would be useless at ANY job.

  • IstvanIN

    This is no different than the command and theft economy of Bobby Mugabe. Blacks are clueless and more dangerous than letting four year olds play with matches in a pile of hay.

  • Transpower

    In order for there to be full employment, the government must get completely out of the way of business, other than to be an objective referee (prosecuting force, theft, and fraud). Every new regulation and tax on business reduce employment. The less-skilled lose their jobs first, then the next less-skilled, etc. There is a “survival limit” to each business: the greater the burden, the lower the survival rate. Increasing the minimum wage will decrease employment and the survival rate–obviously.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    I love how these black leaders demand “Full Employment” for blacks, but never demand that blacks do the things necessary to get employed like graduating high school and avoiding a criminal record.

    • Berkeley Guy

      There is no holistic thinking going on with her, and no thought to the responsibility of citizens. Just write stuff up and somehow, there will be people somewhere out in the world waving wands so that the concept ‘full employment’ becomes a featrure of reality.

  • 2eRep

    Only in the mind of a negro.

  • negrolocaust

    WARNING!!! whites and asians: be on alert: groups of BLACK!! have been
    going around hitting white people trying to knock them down in what
    they call a KNOCKOUT GAME. it is only blacks doing this an attack just
    occurred last friday in DC. if you see blacks avoid them, lock your
    door, do NOT talk to them and phone 911.

    • Who Me?

      They’ve been doing this under the radar for several years now. They hit a few of the chosen people around the holidays just past, and it got on the news, briefly. It seems to have been forgotten now though.

  • Berkeley Guy

    Executive Orders? People are just getting out of hand suggesting such things. No person in the US should be using their power to force employers everywhere to hire everyone. So many things are wrong with this line of thinking that who knows what in the hell to say. Someone please tell Ms. Utopia to put her shoes on her hands and walk around upside down for a while because she needs more blood flow to her brain.

  • WR_the_realist

    Black politicians want a dictator. So for those of you who say you want an authoritarian government, you’re going to get it good and hard.

  • WR_the_realist

    I’ll bet every one of these black politicians saying that unemployment is their number one concern is voting for that immigration bill that will flood the country with more cheap labor. As always for Democrats, diversity overrides any concerns about unemployment and low wages.

    “In fact, I think that should be our number one agenda. Let’s write up these executive orders—draft them, of course—and ask the president to stand with us on full employment,”

    Brilliant. The way this is worded, they have us coming and going.
    If we vote AGAINST this, they will scratch their heads in feigned bewilderment and ask, “Why? Isn’t that what you wanted? What more do you want?”
    If we vote FOR it, the jobs will all go to the minority hordes, and then when we complain, they will say. “But this is what you wanted. You asked for it and you got it. You have no right to complain.”

    • Malgus

      I wouldn’t say “brilliant”… sneaky and underhanded? Yeah. But not brilliant.

      The Fabians were wrapping their agendas with similar wording over 100 years ago, calling them “common sense” and “reasonable” (which automatically painted anyone who opposed them as NOT having common sense or being UNreasonable)… sound familiar? Today’s communists.. errr.. socialists?…erm… “Liberals” do the exact same thing.

      And what, exactly, does “Full Employment” actually mean? Has any country on earth had 100% employment, ever, in the history of man?

  • Major

    Lee is all the proof we need to understand that AA, diversity has been a crime foisted upon us by their true slave masters, liberals.

    And that woman is representative of the fact that with an IQ of cow, she’ll get elected by those with similar or even lesser IQ’s.
