Inspector General: Yeah, Obama Treasury Dept. screwed Delphi non-union workers, but there’s nothing we can do about it

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 16, 2013 10:58 AM

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 […]

The forum will focus on domestic policy. Lehrer alone will determine the topics and questions for six 15-minute segments, and […]

Obama 2010: Taxpayers positioned to recover more than was invested in GM — 2012: Gov’t can’t sell back GM because taxpayers would lose billions (in an election year… gasp)

By Doug Powers  •  September 17, 2012 07:49 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Running just beneath all the self-congratulatory campaign trail talk about President Obama saving GM and taxpayers being paid back is an ugly thing called reality, and it’s not nearly as rosy as they’re making it out to be: Earlier this summer, GM floated a plan with Treasury officials to repurchase 200 […]

Obama’s (Un)American Auto Bailout

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 5, 2012 08:01 AM

(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 […]

Labor Day alert: Support the Delphi workers

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 3, 2012 08:05 AM

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 […]

Meet the real workers Obama screwed over

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 8, 2012 09:10 AM

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 […]

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.

The Autoworkers Obama Left Behind

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 29, 2012 08:59 AM

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 […]

GM to Call Back Chevy Volts

By Doug Powers  •  January 5, 2012 08:59 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Maybe it’s not as bad as it sounds. Technically a “call back” is a notch below a recall, and it only affects 8,000 vehicles — which is a mere, um, 100% of all Volts sold in 2011. Lucky sales didn’t catch fire or the fixes would have been a more massive […]

Fisker Flight: Auto Start-Up Given $529 Million Loan Courtesy of US Taxpayers Heads for the Finnish Line

**Written by Doug Powers In January of 2010, a “green” automotive startup called Fisker, the recipient of a $529 million US Dept. of Energy loan, purchased a former GM plant in Wilmington, Delaware. Almost immediately there were suspicions of a possible quid pro quo deal involving Joe Biden. For now, though, those allegations can be […]
