The autoworkers Obama robbed
New York Post, by Michelle Malkin

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/26/2014 10:30:12 AM

The White House pretended to champion American workers this week with gimmicky initiatives on federal job training and “workplace innovation.” But far from the Beltway dog-and-pony show, a group of American workers ruthlessly shafted by the Obama administration was finally getting some real support — and inching toward justice. (snip) The scheming feds have defied the workers’ public-records requests and withheld more than 7,000 pages of critical e-mails and documents from the workers, who’ve been mired in time-consuming litigation that has cost millions of dollars. ‘‘For more than four years, US taxpayer-paid government lawyers have taken advantage of every procedural

the only individuals thriving are the lawyers. I bet the majority of these workers voted for Obama!

People must stop identifying themselves to a party because their parents and whole family have always voted in a pattern.

Wake up and educate yourself as to what is going on, keep abreast of the power absorbed members in DC and remind yourself they work for you and if you don´t watch them and guard your interests, your freedoms will be gone.

Whining at this point proves what?

"[H]ere are some glimmers of hope: Last month, US District Judge Emmet Sullivan in Washington ordered Treasury to cough up documents from Obama’s auto team leading up to the termination of the Delphi workers’ pensions. "

All together now...

I brought up that point recently with a Dem friend who was an Obama affirmative action voter first time around. She´s beginning to see the light. One convert at a time ...

to a previous point, no, it´s a good bet that the majority of these autoworkers did NOT vote for Obumble the Illegal Alien Manchurian Candidate.
These were NON-union people, engineers, technicians, accountants, and the like. NOT part of the "bargaining unit". I know. I was there for a while, getting out well before this. Some of those people are friends and former co-workers. Some had already retired, and others were about to do so, until the vile and despicable and - yes - downright EVIL creeps around Obumble and the UAW and the Democrap Party stuck it to them.
And some of my former co-workers had to come out of retirement and push carts at WalMart or the like in order to eat more-or-less regularly. After 30 or more years of hard work. I talked with two of them last week. Many died in poverty and despair after their country screwed them. There is a roasting pan in Perdition for Obama and all his co-thieves on just this one issue. Curses unceasing be upon every single one of them.

Don´t forget the investors with holdings in auto stocks and bonds who lost THEIR retirement funds and the (yes, too many for the market, but...) auto dealers and their employees who were destroyed (preferentially)after generations of doing business. (ask Gretchen Carlson of Fox about her parents). The private unions are next as that is how Marxism destroys the middle class. Too bad they didn´t know their history.

I agree with #4. I live in Michigan as well, and you would be surprised that most of us non-union people in the auto industry did NOT vote for Obama! Michigan is not a liberal state. Note that our governor and statehouse are Republican.

Delphi was the auto sub-assembly group of GM that got spun off with all its UAW employees. They went through bankruptcy in 2006 because the combination of union work rules, wages, benefits, etc were simply not competitive in the global market. There is a Wall Street Journal article about how the head of Delphi and the head of UAW had saved the US auto industry. The Delphi facility in Vandalia, Ohio was the number one target for closing before negotiations and became the highest priority for saving when the deal was done. Instead of building off this base, the Czar plowed in the unions at GM assembly plants. Cheating the salaried employees was just a way to save a little money.

Thank you #4, 7 for helping us to understand that. It is not wise to assume all "auto workers" in your lovely state are all Obama supporters and union lackeys. This article was such an eye opener. Kudos to Michelle -- again doing the job FOX and the rest refuse to do!!

A respiratory illness that has already sickened more than a thousand children in 10 states is likely to become a nationwide problem, doctors say. The disease hasn´t been officially identified but officials suspect a rare respiratory virus called human enterovirus 68. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus is related to the rhinovirus, which causes the common cold. According to Mark Pallansch, director of the Division of Viral Diseases at the CDC, similar cases to the ones in Colorado have been cropping up across the U.S. At least 10 states -- Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Kentucky,

President Obama spoke about ISIS at length in his Meet the Press interview this morning, but he didn´t offer much clarity as to what he´s going to do about ISIS. One might say he´s learned from bitter experience not to lay down red lines, and that he ´s being purposefully vague. But I´m afraid the truth is closer to what Jonah Goldberg´s mordant comment: "Everyone’s talking about what the president should say. The assumption is that saying something will reflect a policy of doing something. But that isn’t how Obama sees the situation. He wants to say something that will

Detroit Satanists say they won´t

A new religious group aims to bring the devil to Detroit. The Satanic Temple today marks the launch of its first chapter outside New York. But leaders say they don’t worship Satan. They don’t practice cannibalism, or sacrifice people or animals. “It’s peaceful,” said Jex Blackmore, 32, local leader and part of the temple’s executive ministry. “The idea of sacrifice specifically is to appease some demon or some god, and that’s a supernatural belief that we don’t subscribe to.” The group’s tenets include free will, compassion toward all creatures, respect of others’ freedom — including freedom to offend — and

Democratic Senate investigators criticized a watchdog for the U.S. Internal Revenue Service on Friday for “inaccurately and unfairly” damaging public confidence in the tax agency’s political impartiality. Republican investigators disagreed, defending the job done by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) last year in reviewing the IRS’ handling of tax-exemption applications received from political groups. A starkly split, 222-page report from the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations displayed continued partisan discord over an affair that burst into view in May 2013 and quickly enmeshed the IRS in its worst scandal in decades. Hmmm…this is “its worst scandal in

Dead bodies are strewn all over the streets in Bama, Borno State in Nigeria. The Islamist terror group Boko Haram attacked the city for two straight days, attempting to establish their rule there and expand within the state. Residents and Borno Senator Ahmed Zanna allege the terrorists control the second-largest city in the state, but Borno State government officials have not confirmed the claim. “So many bodies litter the streets, and people are not allowed to even go and bury the dead ones,” said Zanna. “So the situation is getting worse and worse.

Never mind what American news reports say: President Obama is "totally committed" to dealing with ISIL -- and his strategy is "becoming more clear by the day," Secretary of State John Kerry told U.S. allies at the NATO summit in Wales on Friday. "Contrary to what you sort of heard in the politics of our country, the President is totally committed; there is a strategy that is clear, becoming more clear by the day," Kerry said. "And it really relies on a holistic approach to ISIL. That is to say that we need to do kinetic, we need to attack

Earlier today, President Barack Obama said that America’s goal should be to “shrink” the Islamic State until it is a “manageable problem.” His own vice president, Joe Biden, later contradicted him, saying that we will “follow ISIS to the gates of Hell, because Hell is where they will reside.” This afternoon, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki did a “what he really meant to say” routine. (snip) Fox’s James Rosen noted the president’s own contradictory comments, which went from wanting to destroy ISIS, to wanting to roll it back, to wanting to leave it as a “manageable problem.” All of those

On Wednesday’s “The Five” on the Fox News Channel, co-panelist Greg Gutfeld opened the show with a scathing critique of President Barack Obama and his demeanor when speaking publicly about the threat of ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Gutfeld compared Obama’s tone in discussing the ISIS threat to that of when he is speaking about domestic policy, which according to Gutfeld is a startling contrast that is likely motivated by ideology. “I’d call him Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde but he´s more like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Bean.

NEW ORLEANS — A federal judge upheld Louisiana´s ban on same-sex marriages on Wednesday, as well as the state´s refusal to recognize gay marriages legally performed in other states. U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman´s ruling broke a string of 20-plus court wins for supporters of same-sex marriage since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act last year. Feldman said gay marriage supporters failed to prove that the ban violates equal protection or due process provisions of the Constitution. He also rejected an argument that the ban violated the First Amendment by effectively forcing

Immigrant-rights groups reacted furiously Saturday after the White House made clear President Obama will not take unilateral action on immigration before November’s elections, nodding at the political realities of the issue as he punted on the key policy questions. With a number of key Senate races in GOP-leaning states, Democrats had feared that action now would anger voters and cost them control of the upper chamber, and had privately begged the White House to hold off on any move to halt deportations.
