U.S. companies ‘bow’ to Obama’s ‘global treaty’…”‘Most dangerous legacy he’s going to leave us with is this corporatist state'”

The Obama administration is actively lining up corporate America to champion his controversial climate agenda that the president hopes to push through a United Nations summit in the coming weeks, and businesses are jumping aboard by the dozens, either out of profit motive or to avoid punitive action from the White House.

Back in June, a Daily Caller article reported that Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was using both sticks and carrots to woo big businesses onto the climate-change bandwagon.

In a column for Conservative Review, energy expert and crony capitalism watchdog Tom Borelli says corporate leaders are only too eager to join forces with Obama.

“Eighty-one companies have signed onto a White House climate change pledge, where each company volunteers to take certain actions to reduce carbon dioxide emissions,” Borelli said.

Some firms signing onto the Obama climate plan are focused on renewable energy and see a major windfall in profits headed their way if carbon dioxide standards are slashed in the U.S. Others have different incentives.

“There’s a group of food companies that have also signed on. I believe some of these companies, specifically Coca-Cola and Pepsi, are really just trying to align themselves with the administration because they fear at any one moment the progressives will start talking about a tax on sodas,” said Borelli, who noted that this is the latest episode of Obama taking aggressive steps to get what he wants.

“He wants a worldwide global treaty, and then he’s going to try to enforce that on companies, if not directly through law then through intimidation and through public pressure,” added Borelli.

The bad news for corporations, according to Borelli, is that their obedience will only get them so far.

“You think government will be your friend, but eventually you’ll end up turning on the company as well,” he said. “The bell will toll for them.”
