Hollywood Hands Barack Obama an Oscar for Crooked Documentary

Eccentric actor Joaquin Phoenix won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his role as the criminally-insane bad guy, Joker. But former President Barack Obama took home the Oscar for his production company’s documentary American Factory.

The truth behind that story is that Obama played a real-life villain who drove thousands of people in the Ohio automotive plant out of work and into economic devastation. Perhaps Obama should be handed a second award for the way his Higher Ground production company deftly sidesteps the fact that he played the Invisible Man who orchestrated the downfall of hard-working Americans.

“How does a nearly two-hour film telling the story of these workers fail even to mention the direct role the co-owner of the film’s production company played in creating their hardships? Did the filmmakers think no one would remember,” Ohio Rep. Mike Turner responded.

American Factory conveniently picks up after the General Motors plant closes, and Chinese investors seek to take advantage of the vacant facility. One might believe this is a case where the Obama Administration was making last-ditch efforts to buoy the industry. After all, Obama handed the auto industry a bailout, but that too has more than one side to it.

In fact, it was the work of Rep. Mike Turner, former mayor of nearby Dayton, Ohio, and Sen. Sherrod Brown, among others, who helped broker a deal with Chinese investors to reopen the facility and recreate jobs. That fact, like so many others, doesn’t make it into the Obama propaganda piece that was picked up by Netflix. Ranked among the most critical facts American Factory avoids is that Obama’s automaker deal favored unions that did not include the GM plant’s workers. It actually created an impediment for them to move laterally and avoid being displaced.

“A quick refresher. The Obama administration’s auto bailout highly favored the UAW and its members. The GM plant in Moraine was unionized by the IUE-CWA. So — despite being one of the top GM facilities for quality, efficiency, and production in the country — it was shuttered, and its employees were put at the back of the line when requesting transfers to other GM plants. Any non-UAW employees looking to transfer were forced to start as new hires, wiping clean any wages, tenure, and benefits built up during careers at other GM plants,” Rep. Turner wrote in the Wall Street Journal, condemning the film’s false narrative.

“American Factory documents the UAW’s efforts to unionize the reopened auto glass factory without any mention of the same union’s direct role in the GM plant’s closure,” Turner added. “The Dayton community was left out in the cold — thousands of jobs lost, families devastated, longtime GM workers out on the street looking for work.”

Rather than put the treacherous forces behind the job displacement front and center, American Factory shields the ex-president and looks at the cultural and wage disputes between the American workers and Chinese investors. That false narrative plays directly into Obama’s excuses for his failed economy.

As many may recall, he went as far as to claim U.S. manufacturing jobs were never coming back, and President Donald Trump would need a “magic wand” to make them appear. This work of fiction is crooked to its core for crafting a lie that some bizarre culture war and not terrible economic policy were responsible for the plant shuttering in the first place.

If a documentary is to receive perhaps the film industry’s highest honor, one would expect a certain thoroughness that pulls back the veil about the driving reasons for the central controversy, which is the plant’s closure and displaced workers. Call it “artistic license” or “political deception,” but Netflix has successfully conspired with the Obamas to pull a fast one that positions a corrupt narrative as accurate. But as everyday Americans have learned post-Obama, manufacturing jobs are not the result of magic. They are created out of pro-business policy and tax incentives.

“In the Obama economy, investment was tough to come by. With a punitive and outdated tax code, international investment was nearly impossible to attract. State and local officials — especially Moraine Mayor Elaine Allison — worked relentlessly and were able to convince a Chinese manufacturer to invest in and rebuild this once-great factory,” Rep. Turner continued in his Wall Street Journal piece. “The hypocrisy of this Obama-backed film is astounding. Mr. Obama fails to acknowledge his direct role in creating the hardships the Moraine workers weathered. He had nothing whatsoever to do with the plant’s reopening…”

It’s interesting to note that Obama did not show up to accept the Oscar with the film team. Instead, he continues to play the Invisible Man whose misdeeds harmed hard-working people.

  1. Reminds me of the utter hypocrisy that gendered Oblunder’s Nobel Prize after being in office for a grand total of 1 month. What did he do to warrant that one? These Hollywood types have no grasp on reality and what real people have to do to survive and giving Oblunder another unwarranted award is proof of it

  2. Just reading the little bit about Netflix I’m quitting them…that’s it!.i deplore Obama and Hollywood! Especially big ..vulgar..mouthed dinero. He’s so angry his looks are ruined! What are they gaining by not loving this country? They are living in it!

  3. If BLACK PEOPLE still think Obama will help them. Then I guess they really are dumb! His idea was to DESTORY AMERICA WITHIN! That was in his father book! He didn’t care about you or who you were! Just as long as he made you feel like a dumbass person!

  4. So disgusting, as if they (obamas ) did not take enough of our tax dollars to live high on the hog, playing the roll, you can’t buy class of the shelf, they are low down thieves can not wait for the swamps to be drained, what is most unbelievable is Netflix!! I hope every decent person DROPS NETFLIX , this household is ! Why should we keep paying their wages !!

  5. Unfortunately unless someone comes out with a real documentary and gets it on Netflix most Americans will never hear the truth and will augment that its. We need more conservative media outlets to get the word out.

  8. Give Obama credit. He succeeded in every single thing he set out to do as President. He divided the country by race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, political affiliation, religious beliefs and promoted his LBGQT agenda. He single handedly made me pack my bags and move to Ukraine. America is a 3rd World country. It always was a sham country. Being married to a transexual tells you all you need to know about him. Hillary and him will rot in hell.

    • mark Thompson America is not a third world country. What a moronic post. The USA is the best country in the world. Third world countries are found in Africa and South America. We are the best bar none. I have lived in other countries and none even come close.

  9. This is appropriate. A lying asshat awarded by a bunch of other lying asshats. A group of people “actors and such” that make their living by lying.

  10. They sure lowered the standards to get an Oscar, by giving Obama one! What the hell is wrong with those Hollywood people? Stupid question on my part, we all know what’s wrong with Hollywood—they’re Nuts!

  11. AH YES. PRESIDENT SOCK MONKEY. WELL HOLLYWOOD HANDS THE OSCARS OUT TO THEIR IDIOTS EVERY YEAR. NO REASON HE SHOULD BE LEFT OUT

  12. THE OBAMA’S ARE NOTHING BUT FILTHY SAUL ALINSKY FOLLOWERS WHO HATE JEWS, CHRISTIANS, CONSERVATIVES, AND THE USA. THEY ARE NOT ALONE BECAUSE ALL OF THE DEMOCRATIC FRONT RUNNERS DO THE SAME. THEY SPREAD LIES ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP AND WOULD RUIN THIS COUNTRY AS FAST AS THEY COULD IF THEY GET THE POWER TO DO SO.

  13. You are the liars. Here are the facts. Trump’s economy is the Obama economy continuing in spite of the horrific economic policies that the Fat Boy has tried to foist onto you as well as his tax fraud that is resulting in the addition of a TRILLION dollars to the debt in a time when it should be paying down.
    The economy gained a net 11.6 million jobs. The unemployment rate dropped to below the historical norm.
    Average weekly earnings for all workers were up 4.0 percent after inflation. The gain was 3.7 percent for just production and nonsupervisory employees.
    After-tax corporate profits also set records, as did stock prices. The S&P 500 index rose 166 percent.
    The number of people lacking health insurance dropped by 15 million. Premiums rose, but more slowly than before.
    The federal debt owed to the public rose 128 percent. Deficits were rising as Obama departed.
    Home prices rose 20 percent. But the home ownership rate hit the lowest point in half a century.
    Illegal immigration declined: The Border Patrol caught 35 percent fewer people trying to get into the U.S. from Mexico.
    Wind and solar power increased 369 percent. Coal production declined 38 percent. Carbon emissions from burning fossil fuel dropped 11 percent.
    Production of handguns rose 192 percent, to a record level.
    The murder rate dropped to the lowest on record in 2014, then rose and finished at the same rate as when Obama took office.

    • SFTPL your long, bloviating screed by you a gullible, liberal, Demwit moron is so full of lies. You are a puppet of the lying MSM and nothing you posted is even close to true. Yes illegal immigration is going down. Trump has already built 400 miles of wall. The Mexican government is now stopping the illegals at the Mexican lower boarder. The trade agreement Trump made with Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador hinges on him keeping out the illegals from Mexico. If carbon emissions have dropped 38% why are you gullible Demwits still harping on GLOBULL WARMING?

  14. Obama he da man. NOT. He is one gross individual who is not only corrupt, but a true criminal to boot. When I found out that NetFlix was letting him in with his idiot ways. I refused to become a member of NetFlix. He wins the Nobel Peach Prize for doing what, not one damned thing did he do for our Country other than tear it down. He is wife/husband (who cares) Clinton, Biden, George Soros, Romney,Bug-Eyed Shifty Shift, Schumer with their illegalities and their part of the Ukraine fiasco? Is that what a Nobel Peace Prize is based on? I think not, what I do think is Soros paid for it. They have had more scandals that Carter had little liver pills and all, and I do mean all need to be arrested. And what did he earn a gramy award? Who the devil knows. Oh it’s little show on NetFlix vilifying the American People. He’s a vile through and through imposter. He came out of nowhere and that should have been a hugh red flag to the American People. It was to me. He along with the demochits against our Country and their goal was to tear it apart. He wanted the position of Dictator, not President. In his total of 8 years of office and the criminal acts he and the aforementioned people need to be thrown out of their respective offices and his presidency term removed from history. How many times have you seen him not put his hand over his heart when the National Anthym was played. Answer==A lot. He always said he was not American but a Muslim. He’s a treasonous individual. And now, he’s running the show, so to speak, for the Demos now. He’s the one pulling the strings and doesn’t have the manhood to come out about it. Barr is investigating some of these people now, thank God. So all of them are now going to get their collective butts in a vise and lenghly prison terms, or the Firing Squad. As far as I’m concerned they are a piece of pure trash that even a Dumpster wouldn’t take. Their Karma is going to come back on them ten fold and I, for one, will enjoy seeing it.

  15. JUST MORE PROOF THAT THE ELITE SHITHEADS THAR MAKE UP MOST OF HOLLYWEIRD ARE LIBERAL SOCIALIST COMMUNISTS AND BELIEVE THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE CONTROL OVER THE U.S. . THEY ARE ONLY READERS OF OTHER PEOPLE’S WORK AND USE STUNT AND BODY DOUBLES IN THE ACTION PARTS, YET THEY THINK THAT THEY ARE gods AND CAN TELL THE ONES WHO PAY THEIR OBNOXIOUS SALARIES HOW TO LIVE WHEN THEY DO JUST THE OPPOSITE AND RUB IT IN THE FACES OF THE PUBLIC. THEY ARE THE SAME AS THE ASSHOLE POLITICIANS WHO THINK THAT THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN RUN THE LIVES OF THE CITIZENS OF AMERICA.REMEMBER DURING WWII HOW MANY HOLLWEIRD ELITES WERE NAZI SYMPATHIZERS AND WERE SHOWN THAT THE PEOPLE DID NOT PUT UP WITH THEIR BULLSHIT, MANY WERE PROSECUTED AND BLACKBALLED. HOLLYWEIRD IS A FANTASY WORLD AND IT SHOWS IN THE PEOPLE.

  16. The award was for acting like he cared about this country long enough to get elected by the gullible leftists. Then he showed his true communist muslim color to the world.

  17. I hope Obama reads these all of these comments so he can reflect on his presidency. He tried to make the USA a 3rd world country. He divided us more than we ever were before. He should go reside in Kenya.
