Safety Group Claims 303 Deaths Linked To Recalled GM Cars

 

GM Recall Scandal

 

” An auto safety group says federal data show there were 303 deaths in recalled General Motors cars in which airbags did not deploy, but GM says the report misrepresents raw information about crashes.

The Center for Auto Safety, a public interest group started by Ralph Nader and Consumers Union, has written to federal safety regulators charging that the number of accidents is far greater than being admitted by GM.

General Motors says it has traced a defect in an ignition switch to at least 12 deaths. The problem caused the car to shut off while driving — disabling the airbag system.

But GM says disputes Center for Auto Safety’s suggestion, reported Thursday night by the New York Times, that all those deaths are tied to the problems with the ignition.”

 

 

    This is a recall that was ten years in the making and there are accusations that GM knew about the problem and covered it up . 

 

 

” The ignition recall covers the 2005-07 Chevrolet Cobalts and Pontiac G5, the 2003-07 Saturn Ions, the 2006-07 Chevrolet HHRs, the 2006-07 Pontiac Solstice, and the 2007 Saturn Sky.

  Part of what is being investigated is whether GM and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ignored signs of problems for too long, which resulted in the subsequent crashes.

  GM’s own filings with NHTSA show that its engineers were aware of a problem at least as early as 2004 and perhaps as early as 2001, yet it did not order a recall of 1.6 million vehicles worldwide until February of this year.”

 

 

   This is what happens when the government has a vested interest in a business’s success . Safety advocates are accusing the NHTSA of malfeasance in not properly investigating the traffic deaths in a timely manner .

 

 

” The Center for Auto Safety complaint about the 303 deaths is in a letter to NHTSA in which it complains that the agency fell down in the job in not requiring GM to order a recall much earlier before most of those fatal crashes.

“The only way NHTSA could not see a defect trend is if it closed its eyes,” said the group’s letter.”

  Hot Air from Howard Dean

” Via WaPo , what strange Orwellian urge compels guys like this to try to make a meal out of a shinola sandwich? Literally nobody believes him.

   Jon Stewart turned MSNBC into a punchline for the depth of their denial after the Wisconsin
results and Dean-o’s even further gone than they are. You know what he thinks the bigvictory was last Tuesday?

  Supposedly, it’s the fact that Democrats took back the state senate by defeating a Republican incumbent in a recall election.”

Always look on the bright side of life Howard .

“WBAY reporter Matt Smith: I’d like
to ask you about Wisconsin’s recall
election. There are a lot of Democrats that are upset you didn’t campaign for Tom Barrett.

  President Obama: The truth of the
matter is that as President of the
United States, I’ve got a lot of
responsibilities. ”

ROFLMFAO…. “Responsibilities” ? … Je..s H Ch..t … What responsibilities would they be ? Beverly Hills ? Manhattan ?

  That would be anywhere there was money to be grubbed …. Not Madison that’s for sure ….

And this leads us to the newest Twarody or #hashtag game #ObamasTooBusy

collegepolitico RT @dschachenmeyer: He was going to verify that private sector is #DoingFine but #ObamasTooBusy

Here’s hoping so , anyway .

“Election results from Wisconsin and the California cities of San Jose and San Diego communicate a simple message that is likely to be misunderstood by Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives.

The short version: Voters everywhere are finally starting to realize that municipalities, states, and (here’s hoping) the federal government are out of money. That’s the real message of the major contests last night.”

   As both Scott Walker and Rebecca Kleefisch have emerged victorious in the face of the  Union/Left’s temper tantrum and in the process taken millions in Democratic campaign funds off the table for the presidential race , we on the side of liberty and common sense can rejoice in the fact that the adults are still in charge .

“The year-long saga of the Wisconsin recall is, at long last, over, and Scott Walker is still standing. The low-key Republican governor has withstood a sustained (and expensive) onslaught from the forces of Big Labor and its allies on the Left that featured everything from the coordinated cross-border retreat of intransigent Democratic lawmakers, to the occupation of the state house by a band of radicals, bongo drummers, and high school truants, to ill-fated attempts to nullify Republican legislative majorities and pick off uncooperative judges. Walker’s enemies did everything but release the kraken…”

 

Update : My 1000th Post

Jim Geraghty on Scott Walker

“Believe it or not, by winning his recall election –  by a 57 percent to 42 percent margin at this hour – Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has done his foes – the Wisconsin Democratic Party, the public sector unions, the progressives and angry leftists – a favor “

From Huffington Post we are provided with a constantly updating vote count for the Walker recall in Wisconsin . 

Moments ago with 16.9 % of precincts reporting the count was approximately 60/40 Walker and the same for Rebecca Kleefisch . Check it out for an up to the minute tally .

Update : With 24.8 % reporting  it’s  61/38 Walker

RT @Obama2012 : 

“Hey Wisconsinites—polls are open today from 7am-8pm CT. Find your polling place: OFA.BO/iwhoqh”

Via Althouse

If you live in Wisconsin – VOTE TODAY 

With the US Dept of Obama Justice on the scene to facilitate er , watch for fraud this will be close . The dead will rise undoubtedly as will bus loads of out of staters voters . Make sure your vote counts .

“The U.S. Department of Justice has sent poll monitors to Milwaukee–and only Milwaukee, where Democrats need to run up the numbers in order to overcome a large deficit in the polls. When Republican Mark Kirk spoke about the need to protect the integrity of the vote in urban areas during his 2010 U.S. Senate race, Democrats accused him of racism.

Turnout will be the key to victory in the statewide recall election, in which not only Walker but also Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and three Republican senators are being challenged. The recall election was once seen as an important battle over the power of public employee unions, but the unions’ favored candidate lost the Democratic primary to Barrett, and Walker’s reforms to collective bargaining have saved jobs and money for the state and local governments.”

Yes turnout is key . And if turnout can be kept to just the residents and the living Scott Walker should do fine but with Holder’s voting team present nothing can be taken for granted , and let us not forget the union’s capacity for chicanery . Be vigilant my friends .

  From Professor Jacobson we get an inkling of the Left’s plans for Wisconsin … and by extension perhaps the US after the recall election . 

Worker’s World reports that there are widespread actions planned for Wisconsin on June 6, the day after the recall election takes place:

…Fighters from Occupy Wall Street, unions and independent organizations are organizing “Keep It in the Streets” actions to take place in cities statewide on June 6. (occupywi.org) For example, Occupy Milwaukee is sponsoring a rally at Pier Marquette Park in Milwaukee at 5 p.m., followed by a march to the banking district.

The facebook page for the June 6 action; note carefully the list of “endorsers”:

On June 5th we vote. On June 6th we keep it in the streets! Join Occupy Wisconsin and dozens of community allies and labor unions to march on June 6th to make the following demands of our Governor:

1. Repeal Act 10 – Hands off unions and collective bargaining. No cuts to education or Badger Care.
2. Restore the Equal Pay Act – We demand and end to workplace discrimination.
3. Tax the 1% – Hold the banksters and the 1% accountable for their economic crisis, and stop the cuts to working and oppressed people. “

Let victory come tomorrow and in November . Save the Republic .

“If a new poll taken by Democrats is accurate, the recall race in Wisconsin is closer than the conventional wisdom indicates. Democratic pollster Celinda Lake contends that Republican Governor Scott Walker and his Democratic challenger, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, are now tied at 49 percent. The election takes place on June 5th and many believe it is a bellwether indicator of national sentiment going into the general election in November.

Here’s hoping for a good day tomorrow in Wisconsin .

“Turnout will be the key to Wisconsin’s gubernatorial recall election on Tuesday—and polls and early voting suggest Republican Gov. Scott Walker holds an edge over Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

Ensuring Walker maintains that edge is the job of Jason Pipes.

He is one of thousands of grassroots activists engaged in Wisconsin’s divisive June 5 recall elections.

Pipes, 38, drives a hulking 1974 Pinzgauer all-terrain military utility vehicle. Pro-Walker signs line the side of the truck, and the bed is filled with boxes of Walker yard signs and stickers. He sports a Walker hat and t-shirt.”

 Via Breitbart:

           ANTI-WALKER GROUP SENDS MAILER OUTING YOUR NEIGHBORS WHO DON’T VOTE

” Wisconsin blogger Ann Althouse received this, what she called “the most disgusting thing I have ever received in the mail”:

Dear Registered Voter:

Who votes is public record!

Why do so many people fail to vote? We’ve been talking about the problem for years and it only seems to get worse. This year, we’re taking a new approach. We’re sending this mailing to you and your neighbors to publicize who does and doesn’t vote.

We need to pull together. The chart shows the names of some of your neighbors, showing which voted in the past.

After the June 5th election, public records will  tell everyone who voted and who didn’t.

Do your civic duty — vote.”

What on earth can one even say about this ? 

Cautiously Optimistic

  Let’s all hope that this turns out to be an accurate representation of public sentiment . It would certainly remove a generous portion of candy out of the union’s pinata .

 

 

Recall ? Wah , Wah

  Professor Jacobson has thoughtfully pointed out that the Wisconsin recall gambit is hemorrhaging support at an amazing clip . If you are of the left and you’ve lost the press you are doomed .

 “No governor in recent memory has been so controversial. No governor in America is so polarizing. Everyone has an opinion about Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

Here’s ours: We see no reason to remove Walker from office. We recommend him in the June 5 recall election.

Walker’s rematch with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was prompted by one issue: Walker’s tough stance with the state’s public-employee unions. It’s inconceivable that the recall election would be occurring absent that. And a disagreement over a single policy is simply not enough to justify a vote against the governor.

A Marquette Law School Poll in January showed that many people in the Badger State agree. In that poll, 72% of Republicans, 44% of independents and 17% of Democrats said recalls should be limited to criminal wrongdoing. Republican state Rep. Robin Vos has proposed tightening the recall mechanism; he should continue to push for that after the election, regardless of who wins.”

  I find the above referenced poll results concerning attitudes towards the recall mechanism particularly revealing . It gives one a fine indication as to who believes that they can stand on the merits of their arguments and who feels that any means is acceptable in order to get their way . Remind me again of the left’s commitment to the sanctity of the ballot box . 

Cutting Their Losses ?

Given their somewhat diminished campaign donation rate so far this election cycle , have the dems decided not to throw good money after bad in Wisconsin ? Given that the union’s choice to beat Walker was trounced in the primary perhaps they’ve read the handwriting on the wall . One can hope . 

Red State

  “You know, when I saw this secondhand whine from Wisconsin Democrats upset that the DNC apparently wasn’t prepared to throw half a million dollars at the general recall election, I assumed that this would be resolved. I mean, really: the Left has already thrown away tens of millions of dollars; what’s a bit more?”

  This Wisconsin recall business has gotten seriously out of hand. I wasn’t aware that Scott Walker was facing a primary challenge in addition to the election . Needless to say the progressives have decided that two chances to unseat Walker are better than one and they are supporting a man named Arthur Kohl-Riggs in the Republican primary .
  His platform is available for view on , wait for it , the Occupy Wisconsin website . He describes himself thus ” Arthur Kohl-Riggs: The Progressive Republican ” . That plus the fact that he is supported by Occupy should tell you all you need to know about his “republican ” credentials .
   A brief description of the man , ” Arthur Kohl-Riggs, a scruffy-haired 23-year-old political activist who used to serve pizza at the Children’s Museum in Madison until a few weeks ago …” he’s also described as a “fake republican” and agitator .
    If you approve of what Governor Walker has done in the state or just disapprove of the progressives endless whining , foot-stomping and attempts to overturn any election result that they don’t agree with then support Scott Walker Scott Walker .

PS: The left is all about rigging the game . This again highlights my post of a few days ago about why elections matter . Judges , Judges , Judges .
