In August of 2012, I began a series of articles titled, "A Lawless Presidency" and began looking into a huge scandal that involved the Obama Administration taking the pensions from salaried workers of Delphi and then "topping up" the pensions of certain auto union workers to grease the wheels for Judge Robert Gerber's lightning fast GM bankruptcy. Part 1 was titled, "Obama Administration Rips Off Non-Union Delphi Pensions While Preserving Union Pensions".
The Delphi bankruptcy case was overseen by Judge Robert Drain who also
After discovering miscarriages of justice and inconsistent applications of the law when investigating the Delphi bankruptcy and its connection to the auto bailouts, I started noticing something fishy about the Chapter 11 process and bankruptcy courts in the U.S. The mentality that is rampant in the "U.S. bankruptcy industry" revolves around theories of "foxes guarding hen houses" and the need for speed speed speed justified by the urgency of "melting ice cubes" and "rotting fish". Seriously??
During my investigation series, "A Lawless Presidency", I interviewed Ohio Congressman Mike Turner (R) about the Delphi bankruptcy case. Turner said the "entire process was a miscarriage of justice." After investigating this case further, it is clear why he said that. As you will see below, what happened to the Delphi Salaried Retirees during this bankruptcy process was unfair is unquestionable. But was it a consistent application of the law?
A Lawless Presidency - Part 5 - National Rifle Association Getting Furious Fast over Fast and Furious
Perhaps the most lawless act of the Obama Presidency has been its role in Operation Fast and Furious. The National Rifle Association (NRA) has been out front in keeping this story in the public's eye. While in Washington, DC, last month, I spoke with NRA Spokesperson Jacqueline Otto about Fast and Furious. Read more »
Vice President Joe Biden likes to cheer "Osama Bin Laden is Dead and GM is Alive!" But what he doesn't tell you is that since the illegal GM bankruptcy, President Barack Obama has been hard at work as the "Job-Exporter-in-Chief" moving thousands of high paying, middle-class, NON-UNION jobs to China. GM, the shining star on top of the Obama Re-Election "Winter Holiday Tree", is leaving town quickly and what's left is circling the drain.
In talking with former GM employees, I learned Obama has been sending non-union jobs like product design, engineering and drafting jobs to China.
A Lawless Presidency - Part 4 - House Judiciary Hearing - "The Obama Administration's Abuse of Power"
During the planning process for my recent trip to Washington, DC, I learned the House Judiciary Committee would be having a hearing entitled, "The Obama Administration's Abuse of Power". As this fits right in with this series of stories, I contacted the committee and Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) to make arrangements to attend the hearing. Read more »
US Rep Mike Turner (R-OH) on Delphi Bankruptcy Scandal - "The Entire Process was a Miscarriage of Justice"
When I learned about the Delphi Salaried Retirees Pension Scandal in a brief news item on Bankruptcy Law Review, I started wondering if members of the Obama Administration and other insiders were meddling with the bankruptcy courts to deliberately transform the bankruptcy process into a mechanism for the redistribution of wealth. My interest grew further when I interviewed Alex Cortes of Let Freedom Ring, who has been following this issue,
Let Freedom Ring's Alex Cortes Discusses Obama Administration's Role in Delphi Salaried Retiree Pension Scandal - "So What if 20,000 People Lost Their Pensions"
In my first article about the Delphi Salaried Retirees Pension scandal, I posted an ad from Let Freedom Ring (LFR), an organization that has been shining a very bright light on this scandal and is trying to help these 20,000 retirees regain the pension they worked their entire lives for that was stolen from them by the Obama Administration through the GM/Delphi bankruptcy process. While in Washington, DC last week,
Obama Discusses Redistribution of Wealth - Then Remodels Bankruptcy Courts as a Redistribution Tool and Denies Equal Justice Under the Law
We have known from the 2008 Presidential Campaign of Barack Obama that he supports the notion of redistribution of wealth. He said so on many occasions including the famous "Joe the Plumber" comment. What has not been very clear on was that he is already using the bankruptcy courts in America as a tool to accomplish this goal.
In an audio tape from 1998, Obama told students at Loyola University, "As we try to resuscitate that notion that we’re all in this thing together, leave nobody behind. We do have to be innovative in thinking, what are the delivery systems that are effective and meet people where they live.” Then he says,
A Lawless Presidency - Part 3 - An Illegal War Against Libya by President Barack Obama Leads to Murder of US Ambassador and Other Americans

President Barack Obama engaged in an illegal war against the nation of Libya in 2011. At that time, I wrote about why this war was a violation of the War Powers Act. Many people, including members of his own political party, called for the President to be impeached because of this violation of the law. This illegal military action has now led to an act of war against the United States by radical Muslim's and the murder of US Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans serving as security guards for the Ambassador. Read more »
