Activists Plan to Counter Obama’s Re-Election Fundraiser in Chicago with “Party for Jobs”

President Obama plans to celebrate his big 50th birthday this Wednesday at the historic Aragon ballroom on Chicago’s north side with additional satellite fundraisers being held around the country. But the President may be in for another unexpected surprise: A “Jobs Bash” just steps away from the upscale fete in his honor.

Here are the details:

WHAT: On Sunday’s premiere of “The Victory Sessions” with Stephen Bannon on TalkRadio 790 KABC and streamed live with Larry O’Connor, editor-in-chief of , “Tea Party Report” contributor William J. Kelly issued a call for people of all political persuasions – `conservative, independent, and tea party supporters and leaders welcome – to come to Chicago for the President’s birthday for a “bash” of their own.

“Barack Obama is only concerned about one job and that is his own. He is in town for a birthday fundraiser after sending a debt limit deathblow to American businesses,” said Kelly.

To that end, Kelly is helping to organize the first Tea Party “Jobs Bash: 2011.” He is calling on the unemployed and the underemployed to come out and bring their resumes to “Job Bash 2011” and call on the President to own up to the high U.S. unemployment figures – currently at 9.2 %.

WHERE: The Green Mill (across from the Aragon Ballroom)
4802 North Broadway Street
Chicago, Illinois

PLEASE NOTE: The Green Mill is not a sponsor or a host of this event. It is simply an entertainment venue where we are meeting to have a beer with my unemployed friends.

WHEN: Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Jobs Bash reception begins at 3pm.

  2. How I wish I could be there with all of YOU in Chicago for the “JOB BASH”! I am a bachelor degree individual in Technology Management, BAS, graduating Cum Laude – and for the past 3 months NON-STOP I have been looking for a job – GUESS WHAT – there are VERY, VERY FEW POSITIONS AVAILABLE, and when I do find a position available – OBVIOUSLY, I COMPETE WITH HUNDREDS OF OTHERS WHO ARE DESPARATE JUST LIKE ME LOOKING FOR WORK! Our Country’s unemployment is NOTHING like I have ever seen before…. God, please restore our United States of America… I humbly ask your mercy for myself and my work situation, as well as all of the OTHER hundreds of thousands like me out there POUNDING THE PAVEMENT AND THE INTERNET SEARCHING…. God Bless The USA…. IN GOD WE TRUST!!!!

  4. I think this a great idea! I’m a young, highly educated, conservative that cannot find a career path to save my life. I’m working several part-time jobs so that I can continue to pay for my own health care and save for my own retirement (thank you) but unfortunately I cannot afford to come to Chicago for something like this. But please knock some sense into these people!! Tell them to spend their money locally, at the very least, instead of wasting it on someone who’s trying to tax them out of it. The multiplier effect does wonders for local economies!! :)

  7. I am one of the unemployed and I have been trying for two years prior to losing my job and for the last year since my job was phased out to look for work. I went back to school for my degree in 2005 and graduated in 2007. So far all I have to show for my degree and my twenty years experience in my field, is a very large school loan, which I am currently paying off while I collect unemployment.
    I would rather be working and earning my own salary so as to pay off my school loan. I would even like to be working in the field I went to school for.
    So Mr. Obama Thanks but no Thanks, four more years of you and your parties greed is not what I’m looking for.
    As it is even if I do finally get a job, I will not be able to retire till I’m seventy-seventy five. My children and their children will be working longer and harder than our parents or ourselves, to pay off the National debt.
    I am currently 57 years old I don’t see a solution in my life time, unless our elected officials get off the pillar they put themselves on and start doing the work in which they were elected for.
    And since they are worst at paying their bills than I am, I don’t think they should be dictating to me and the rest of the country on how we should be handling our finances. That goes for the Obamacare as well. National healthcare does not work and is expensive.
    Food costs are up, soon we won’t be able to afford to eat. Gas prices will soon be $5 a gallon, and those new hybrid cars are too expensive to buy, and the fuel it uses is also not cheat. So getting to work, being able to choose where you want to live will be dictated by public transit.
    This is not living. Where is the America I once knew? Where are the jobs that used to be here? They have all moved away, India, South America, Europe, China, Tia wan,etc.
    Please bring our jobs back home.
    Send Obama to jail along with those who helped him. A charlatan, a pretender, has been holding office as president and spending like it was his money. We need to keep him being able to run again and we should not allow him and all his “friends” to get away with the damage they have incurred.

  8. Happy Birthday Obama you said you’d get gas to sky rocket and so is unemployment but your policies got the economy going the other way. If you listened to Harry Alford, president and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce , instead of creating your own phony Black Chamber with clueless socialists you might have a clue. He blasted President Obama’s anti-business administration and labeled the administration “Marxist” and “fanatical.” on the Laura Ingraham Show. He said Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle that he wanted $6 to $7 a gallon so we can reduce our footprint.

    Next healthcare. Gotta run I think I hear the IRS coming.
    Please Check out song called teapartiers I can’t hear you at

    Here’s a verse
    Doctors are retiring earlier but we’re getting 17000 new IRS
    This is how Obama creates health care jobs I guess
    For 234 years this country’s been God’s blessing.
    Now he’s following Cloward and Piven’s to bankrupt the country I’m guessing
    If Obamacare gives Grandma and Grandpa a scare
    Think how when their rationed and die earlier we’ll save on healthcare
