Still fighting: The Delphi workers Obama robbed by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 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... Read More
Photoshop credit: Moonbattery Loyal readers have followed my coverage over the past three years on how President Obama’s UAW bailout threw tens of thousands of nonunion autoworkers under the bus. It’s the real-life horror story of some 20,000 white-collar workers at Delphi, a leading auto parts company spun off from GM a decade ago. As... Read More
A few debate questions for Obama that won't be asked by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Tonight, left-leaning TV anchor Jim Lehrer of government-supported PBS will moderate the first 90-minute presidential debate in Denver. The forum will focus on domestic policy. Lehrer alone will determine the topics and questions for six 15-minute segments, and... Read More
(Photoshop credit: Reader Joe N.) My column today previews tonight's DNC celebration of the massive redistribution of wealth from American taxpayers to...foreign auto plants and overseas auto workers. Tonight's speakers will wrap the auto bailout in red, white, and blue. The antidote to their narrative-warping is for the GOP to amplify the voices of the... Read More
These are the forgotten workers who have been shafted by the callous Obama administration and its UAW cronies. I've chronicled their plight for the past two years on this blog and in my column. Now, they are asking for your help. Please take a moment to sign their petition. Watch and share this video: Tell... Read More
Photoshop credit: Moonbattery My column today contrasts the phony Romney-killed-a-steelworker's-wife fable from Obama's sleazy SuperPAC with the actual stories of economic havoc that Obama's union-pandering administration wrought on thousands of Delphi workers. A reminder of what I wrote in February: As long as Barack Obama insists on spinning fables about the auto bailout, I will... Read More
Photoshop credit: Moonbattery I have been reporting to you about how President Obama's UAW bailout threw tens of thousands of nonunion autoworkers under the bus since September 2010. It's the real-life horror story of some 20,000 white-collar workers at Delphi, a leading auto parts company spun off from GM a decade ago. As Washington rushed... Read More
Photoshop credit: Moonbattery As long as Barack Obama insists on spinning fables about the auto bailout, I will continue to call attention to the forgotten victims and sacrificial lambs who got screwed. Yesterday's UAW pep rally in Washington was another exercise in reality denial. I'll say it again: The Right needs to forcefully counter the... Read More
GOP House Oversight and Government Reform chair Rep. Darryl Issa has questions for Ford CEO Alan Mulally about the White House Ford fiasco. In a new letter Mulally received today, Rep. Issa requests more information and notes that he is "deeply concerned about undue political pressure exerted by the White House on public companies. Issa... Read More
Media progs and Soros monkeys are working overtime to discredit yesterday's Detroit News report on alleged White House intimidation of, and pressure on, Ford Motor Company over its popular ad critical of the government auto bailout. As I pointed out yesterday, it's just another one of those Chicago coincidences that the Attack Watch goon squad's... Read More
Your Chicago Way read of the day comes from the Detroit News, where columnist Daniel Howes brings news that a few calls from the White House have led to Ford Motor Company yanking ads that spotlighted its refusal to take government auto bailout money. Nice car company ya got there, fellas. Would be a shame... Read More
If you paid attention here last fall, you know all about how Obama Treasury officials screwed over non-union white-collar workers at Delphi, a leading auto parts company spun off from GM a decade ago. See my September 2010 Special Report– The Delphi disaster: An economic horror story Obama won’t tell. (More background links below.) A... Read More
As you all know, President George W. Bush is on his book/rehabilitation tour -- hitting every MSM and cable news show from the Today Show to Hannity, plus Oprah, Rush Limbaugh, and beyond. His candor, decency, self-effacement, and clear love of country stand in stark contrast to the current antagonist-in-chief at the White House, so... Read More
Here's the latest update to my reporting on the Delphi disaster -- the economic horror story Team Obama won't tell. As you know, the White House auto team and Treasury Department cut a backroom deal with the UAW to cover union workers' pensions while shafting non-union salaried workers who were deemed politically expendable. The Delphi... Read More
Good news today for the Delphi salaried retirees who were screwed over by Team Obama's auto task force and the UAW. As I reported Wednesday, the Delphi white-collar workers were in court today for a hearing on their federal lawsuit challenging the backroom deals that led to massively slashed pension benefits for non-union workers while...

Making pledges is easy. Keeping them? Not so much. Just ask Mr. Hope and Change. The new GOP pledge is fine as far as it goes -- especially the upfront acknowledgment that government's powers derive from the consent of the governed, not from the penumbras emanating from the fingertips of all President Obama's czars. But... Read More
Last month, I mentioned the plight of the Delphi salaried retired workers on the Hannity Show (starts at 4:00 minute mark) during our segment on the Obama Beltway Chainsaw Massacre. Today, my column delves further into the economic horror stories of these forgotten victims of Obama's auto bailout/union payoff. I'll be telling more of them... Read More
Corrupt and corrupter.
I'm the corruptocrat more responsible for creating the banking meltdown conditions. No, I am! As you all know, the Senate passed the Dodd-Frank financial "reform" sham last week (see my post on the GOP-enabled vote here). Today, President Obama will sign the 2,319-page monstrosity into law. The Associated Press calls it "sweeping." My adjectives are... Read More
DUI: Driving under the influence...of Big Labor-pandering, left-wing radicals My column today dives into the TARP special inspector general's audit of the "Factors Affecting the Decisions of General Motors and Chrysler to Reduce Their Dealership Networks." You can find it at the TARP OIG's website here. I encourage you all to read through the entire... Read More
Good for my friends at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. They're filing a complaint with the FTC over GM's B.S. bailout payback ad. The deets: The Competitive Enterprise Institute today filed a formal complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, arguing that General Motors misleadingly claimed in a national TV ad that the company has paid back...

(Photoshop credit: Reader Joe N.) U.S. regulators have announced they will seek a record $16.4 million fine against Toyota. Reader Bob e-mails: Well, the feds and their subsidiary GM just fined Toyota $16M. Coincidentally, Toyota just annihilated the competition in sales during March. This, under the immense duress of having the government and media slam... Read More
In January, I deconstructed the White House "Financial Crisis Responsibility Fee" fakery for you: My friends at the Heritage Foundation compiled a handy graphic that underscores chicanery.
Scroll for updates... You've got to be freaking kidding me. I mean, really. Come on: Over the last year, John McCain supported everything that the grass-roots Tea Party movement has stood against: *The $700 billion all-purpose, earmark-stuffed TARP bailout; *The $25 billion auto bailout; *The $300 billion mortgage entitlement bailout; and *The

Next up: Obama appoints the... ...Distinguished Overlord of Oxygen Intake (to limit individual human carbon emissions); ...Royal Captain of Calorie Consumption (to limit weight gain and... Read More
(Photoshop credit: Reader Joe N.) It's official. General Motors has filed for bankruptcy. Government Motors is now in business, with a perpetual taxpayer lifeline: George W. Bush stuck the key in the bailout ignition. Barack Obama floored the gas pedal. The taxpayers got stuck with a lemon for life. *** Commenter John424: "Tell me again... Read More
