After Obama guidance,
Lockheed won’t issue
layoff notices this year

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Jeremy Herb

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/1/2012 10:37:54 AM

Lockheed Martin said Monday it will not issue employee layoff notices this year, ending an election-year showdown with the Obama administration. The company said it based its decision on new guidance issued Friday by the Office of Management and Budget and the Pentagon. The guidance said the Pentagon did not anticipate killing any contracts on Jan. 2, the day automatic spending cuts are set to begin hitting defense spending. The guidance also said federal government would cover severance costs that are mandated under a federal layoff notices law. The decision by Lockheed means thousands won't get

Comments:
Well that's certainly a new way of phrasing it. 0bama guidance?? You mean King Barry issued his directive for what they can and cannot do?? I'm sick to death of this corrupt regime comprised of nothing but political hacks.

I can remember when I worked for a defense contractor (way, way back in the 1990s) when this sort of thing was illegal.

The face of corruption: Barack Hussein Obama.

But don't worry, Lockheed employees - he'll have "more flexibility" after the election.

This sort of thing is still illegal. It is just that the consequences of going against King Barry in the eventuality he gets re-elected are much greater than the penalties for following the law in the case where he does not get re-elected.

Wednesday, November 7, the day after the election, is going to be a literal bloodbath of pink slips. The Obamatrons will be wlll be stunned that they were misled and the "undecided" who sat this one out will have no one to blame but themselves.

This is going to cost Lockheed stockholders money. Furthermore, what guarantee does Lockheed have that Obama will not cancel contracts anyway if he gets the chance. I would hate to have my job hanging on whether Obama spoke the truth or not.

The Administration says the Federal government will cover severance costs as a result of not following the law. Where does Obama get either the authority or the money to do this?

There will be layoffs thanks to Obama just after the election and guess what, boys and girls, the taxpayer will be hit with covering severance costs of those layoffs.

Is this the guidance? See in particular the second paragraph (bottom of first and top of second):

White House memo:
http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/memoranda/2012/m-12-19.pdf

Read it yourself, but it seems to me they are telling the contractors to ignore the WARN act and the government will pick up the tab for any penalties or legal fees.

How is this not illegal? Where is the court challenge?

Is Obama and the rest of his flying monkeys in the White House sooooo stupid that they don't know that Defense Contractors and their employees are hanging on EVERY WORD of this debate? They can talk all they want to about not sending out the layoff notices for these blatantly political reasons -- but the employees SURELY KNOW that their jobs are on the line, on the chopping block, if the Obammunist and the rest of his Communists get back into the White House.

The Obammunist MUST get his pink slip on 6 November; you can be pretty sure the United States Marines will have to drag his sorry butt, kicking and screaming and clawing, out of the White House on 20 January.

It is illegal for the federal government to threaten contractors with penalties if they obey the law.

It is illegal for the federal government to indemnify contractors for breaking the law.

Romney needs to make a stink and get someone to file a court challenge. He similarly needs to have someone sue the federal government for the delay to implementing the new penalties on Medicare Advantage until after the election.

The Weasels win again. Or seem too, the workers and their families and friends will not be fooled.

But the escape route was always clear. Until the employer is told what exactly which contract is canceled or reduced and when he cannot know which workers will be laid off. Hence notification has no meaning.

So all Obama had to say is that he is obeying the law but details aren't quite worked out yet.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov.

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network.

And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
