"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague." -Cicero
Documentary Evidence! Obama’s Former “Car Czar” was a Socialist
Just as a quick reminder, in case this has slipped your mind, Mr. Bloom is our Marxist buddy who said, "we kind of agree with Mao, that political power comes largely through the barrel of a gun" and, "the free-market is nonsense", hear it for yourself, and in context:
Evidence is good. The question is, can it make a difference?
This association has been reflected in many of the President’s policies – and appointments.
Today we present documentary evidence, that Ron Bloom, Obama’s “Car Czar” from July 2009 through February 2011, was also in the D.S.A. orbit.
Bloom played an integral role in managing the process that led to the reorganization of General Motors and Chrysler as they teetered on the edge of bankruptcy. In total, the government spent about $80 billion to bail out the companies.
Throughout the bailout, Republicans regularly criticized Bloom for giving favorable treatment to the United Auto Workers union over investors, who lost billions in the car manufacturers’ bankruptcies.
Coincidentally, the U.A.W. is also dominated by Democratic Socialists of America affiliates, including union president Bob King, who was appointed in February 2011, by President Obama, to the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations.
Ron Bloom penned an article for D.S.A.’s Democratic Left, Fall 2006 issue, on the steel industry, but until now there has been no documentary evidence that he was actually a member of the Marxist group.
After leaving the Obama Administration, Bloom served for a time as Senior fellow at the leftist dominated/Obama Administration friendly Center for American Progress.
In February 2012, Bloom became a senior adviser to investment bank Lazard.
“Ron’s skills, experience and relationships will be a tremendous complement to our global franchise,” Kenneth M. Jacobs, Lazard’s chief executive, said in the statement. Jacobs is a member of the Board of Trustees at the leftist leaning Brookings Institution.
The Obama Administration is a toxic blend of socialism and crony capitalism.
It is little wonder Obama chose Ron Bloom, a man with his feet firmly in both camps to save Chrysler and GM for the unions and certain big business elements, at the expense of both shareholders and the American taxpayer.
