Kerry Led Outsourcing Trade Mission to China. Ties to Boston Company Boasting Over 70 Outsourcing Projects
John Kerry, who has made opposition to corporate outsourcing of U.S. jobs to places like China a major part of his presidential campaign, appears to have had major involvement with a Boston, Massachusetts company specializing in outsourcing of U.S. manufacturing and jobs.
During the late 1990's, Kerry led at least one of the company's outsourcing trade missions to China, appearing for photos at a banquet in Beijing with representatives of Boston Capital & Technology and unidentified Chinese trade representatives. The exact date of the trip is not given on the company website but appears to have taken place between 1996 and 1998.
Kucinich: Obamas job czar expert at creating foreign jobs
Posted on 08.30.11
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) said Tuesday that its time for the head of the Presidents Council on Jobs and Competitiveness to resign or be fired because hes sending jobs to China.
In a press release last week, Kucinich noted that in his role as the CEO of General Electric, Obama job czar Jeffrey Immelt was sending advanced technology and U.S. jobs to China.
Jeffrey Immelt has a conflict of interest, the Ohio congressman said. He cannot ethically advise the President on how to create American jobs and promote American competiveness, while at the same time leading a company that is exporting American technology and, along with it, American jobs.
Kucinich told CNNs Ali Velshi Tuesday that it did not make sense for Immelt to continue working for the president.
He has expertise in job creation, but, unfortunately for the United States, seems to be creating jobs in other countries. One-fifth of the U.S. work force has been eliminated since that gentleman had taken the helm of GE, Kucinich explained.
If the White House doesnt have a jobs policy and they go to somebody who is not only moving his jobs out of the country, but also off-shoring profits so he is not paying a share of the taxes GE ought to be paying, look, the White House has to get a grip on its jobs policy.
Economic treason is one of the many bi-partisan efforts in Congress. It’s call the FUAmerica global economic program. It’s been extremely successful.
"Shortly after taking office in 1985, Kerry and Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa went on a fact-finding trip to Nicaragua, where they met with Daniel Ortega (right) and other Sandinistas. The trip was criticized when the Sandinistas cemented ties with Moscow."
