Government Motors is What Obama Wants to Do to ‘Every Industry’ – Tea Party Nation


Government Motors is What Obama Wants to Do to ‘Every Industry’ – Tea Party Nation.

Note: This first appeared in’s Big Government.

President Barack Obama on Thursday uttered the following utterly absurd thing:

“I want to (bailout) manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.”

Even before President Obama dramatically bumped up the auto bailout to $82 billion, we were saying that this government-funded Crony Socialism model is what he has in mind for the entire once-private sector economy.  He’s just now openly asserting it.


So let’s take a look at the auto bailout nightmare mess – and marvel at what President Obama wishes to multiplicatively replicate.


(If some of the following sounds recently familiar, you must listen to gracious radio host-exemplar Mark Levin.)


  • During the bankruptcy process, President Obama illegally paid off the UAW first and in full – before secured bondholders who should have been made whole before anyone else got a dime.  Which was incredibly disruptive and destructive of the entire bond market.  Economic uncertainty, anyone?
  • Meanwhile, President Obama cut the pensions of non-union GM-subsidiary Delphi’s employees by up to 70%.
  • President Obama illegally carried forward through the bankruptcy the ridiculously exorbitant UAW contracts.  Which were a hay-yuge contributing factor to GM going under in the first place – and are again, predictably, helping to wreck the bottom line.
  • Why has the stock tanked so precipitously?  Because GM is no longer a for-profit car company – it is a Leftist ideological entity.  To wit:
  • We the Taxpayers pay $7,500 per Volt sold in bribe money – I mean incentive.  And in President Obama’s latest unanimously rejected budget he wanted to up that to $10,000 per.

 And so on, and so on, and….

 All of this slow-motion train wreck-litany – is President Obama’s vision for how we should from now on do all things economy.

 Because for this President, “success” doesn’t mean greater free market achievement – it means greater government control.


The Jerk of the Year – Judson Phillips – Tea Party Nation

The Jerk of the Year – Judson PhillipsTea Party Nation.

As we wind down to the last few hours of the year, it is only fitting that before the year ends, we take a look back and award our Obnoxious Jerk of the Year.

 Who is our winner?

 Well, our obvious runner up is Ron Paul supporters, who Mark Levin accurately described in a famous blog this year.

 However, our winner is the Occupy mob.

 What a bunch of self centered, over inflated, egotistical obnoxious jerks. 

 While the Occupy mob was a creation of Adbusters and funded by George Soros sponsored groups, they have on their own reached a new level of, well being jerks. 

 If these clowns were not so problematic, they could be funny.  After all, how can you not laugh at many of these so-called protestors who are being funded by Mommy and Daddy, screaming about how terrible capitalism is, while using their Iphones, Ipads and Macbooks.   They scream about how much they hate the 1%, which many of them come from, while wearing designer clothes, carrying their North Face backpacks and make regular runs to REI for more camping gear. 

 While their laughable behavior is bad enough, what makes them our Obnoxious Jerks of the Year is the way they treat other people. 

 They took over property, some private, some public, without regard for the rights of others.  In many cases the property was damaged or destroyed.   They invaded businesses and in some cases shut them down.    They do not care that they cost real Americans their jobs; Americans who were working to support themselves and their families. Nope, as long as they could raise hell, they did not care. 

 However, the Occupy mob’s true moments of first class, cranial-rectalitis comes with their infamous “mic-checks.”  The members of the Occupy mob believe in their right to speak and no one else’s.  They have shouted down people ranging from Scott Walker, to Michele Bachmann to Newt Gingrich.  Even yesterday, they invaded a coffee shop in advance of a Newt Gingrich appearance.  They were quite happy to try and deny him the right to speak and offer his ideas to the voters of Iowa and the were equally happy to disrupt the operations of a small business.

 2011 brought us the Occupy Movement.  They are our Obnoxious Jerks of the Year.

 We can only hope 2012 will bring us relief from these fools.
