New White House Petition Demands Obama Nationalize Twinkie Industry

Great. Put the King Ding-Dong in charge of Ding-Dongs.

A new petition on the White House website wants Obama to nationalize the Twinkie industry.
The Politico reported:

A new White House petition wants President Obama to nationalize the “Twinkie industry,” saving the popular junk food from possible extinction.

“We the undersigned, hereby request Barack Obama to immediately Nationalize the Twinkie industry and prevent our nation from losing her sweet creamy center,” a petition on the White House “We the People” website requests.

    What would Michele Obama say?

  • pagar

    Obama has never ran a lemonade stand, has no knowledge at all of running a large company.
    For that you need some one with experience. But that is not what the American leftists want, they want to run this country into the ground.

  • hermie

    Since Michelle considers Twinkies a public enemy they will die a quick death.

    But on the bright side by Executive Order the Federally mandated Tofu bars will soon be available. Be sure to place your order for a case, or else you will have to pay a penalty.

    Wow the bammer has a big dilemma here. Save the jobs or not ever get any from the first wookie for supporting junk food. I think He will side with the junk food here.

  • Rachelle

    Twinkies for Obama almost makes sense. Brainless.

  • he’s bailed everyone else out why not! Had he grown up in the US he probably would lift a finger to help them.

    Just think no more Wonder Bread, mini powdered donuts, twinkies…..

    This would require shareholders go along wouldn’t it? That isn’t going to happen. I don’t think Hostess wants any part of that stealth Jihadist in the White House.

  • Practical Jane

    Michelle will never go for that. However, this is just the type of investment Bain might be interested in – and if they do invest in Hostess so will we.

    A paradox, a paradox, a most amazing paradox: Should you save the unions by saving junk food? Someone call Michelle.

    Twinkie industry? Sweet Creamy center? Huh? Is America’s first ghey POTUS going to nationalize San Francisco’s queer community – make sure the ‘sweet creamy center’ stays in California?

    That didn’t take long… if government mandate that every household will have at least one government issued wonder bread, twinkies and ding-dong, people can just send it straight to the trash.

    Hostess is a privately held company. Nationalizing it would throw every legal concept of private property and bankruptcy law to the four winds.

    Let’s see: petitions for secession, and to nationalize Hostess are a good start.

    Now, how about a petition to sue California for its cap-and-trade law? There’s precedent, from this adminstration, namely the Arizona immigration law which mirrored Federal law. The cap-and-trade law is different from, and arguably pre-empted by, Federal environmental law.

    Holder’s just the guy to do it.

    Um, it’s a joke folks.

    I’m guessing someone will buy a lot of these brands out of the bankruptcy estate and start making them again. Just not with the union contracts and liabilities that Hostess was subject to.

    Butternut plant is a loss but don’t worry about the Twinkies

    The liquidation of Hostess brands has been headlined as the end of the Twinkie but Journal Star Justin Glawe, who covered the strike and subsequent closing of the Hostess plant in South Peoria, offers a different view.

    “Let’s get one thing straight: Twinkies are most likely not going anywhere,” said Glawe.

    “While Hostess Brands Inc. will probably cease to exist in its current form, Twinkies, Ho Hos, Ding Dongs or whatever other gluttonous American treat you crave remain a strong brand that will surely be snatched up by someone

    “Company spokesperson Erik Halvorson said simply that, ‘We basically would sell assets, and those brands are essentially assets,’ when news of a deadline requiring striking workers to return to the job, or face mass layoffs and liquidation of the entire company, broke. Halvorson was speaking of the various brands that fall under the Hostess umbrella, including Twinkies,” added Glawe.

    “The growing interest in the story of striking members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union has shown that Americans are concerned over the possible loss of Hostess’ iconic snack foods. And surely, somewhere, some executive at some company is licking his chops at the thought of snatching up the soon-to-be abandoned brands,” he said.

    “Beyond their ridiculously long shelf life, (if you buy a box now, your grandkids can enjoy them), the future of Twinkies remains uncertain, but a future it remains,” noted Glawe.

    The other point to be made is that Peoria’s loss in the Hostess collapse is the closing of a bakery that has been churning out bread for decades in the heart of the city. It’s a loss of jobs for the workers, many who had long years of service at the company and it’s a loss for the neighborhood.

    A lot of money has been invested in updating an old facility at 1511 W. Lincoln Ave. Let’s hope that another baker —dare we say it — with more dough — is able to step in and keep things going.

    Obama needs to be interrogated, please someone call for him to testify.

    Sources: Obama Knew Benghazi Was Terrorism Before Deploying Rice

    According to the Washington Guardian, it wasn’t just CIA Director David Petraeus who knew that the attacks on the American consulate in Benghazi were terrorism linked with al Qaeda. It was the White House. And they knew it well in advance of Ambassador Susan Rice’s appearances on national television to lie to the American public about a “spontaneous” demonstration based on a YouTube video spurring the assault.

    The Guardian reports:

    U.S. intelligence told President Barack Obama and senior administration officials within 72 hours of the Benghazi tragedy that the attack was likely carried out by local militia and other armed extremists sympathetic to al-Qaida in the region, officials directly familiar with the information told the Washington Guardian on Friday ….

    The details from the CIA and Pentagon assessments of the killing of Ambassador Chris Stephens were far more specific, more detailed and more current than the unclassified talking points that UN Ambassador Susan Rice and other officials used five days after the attack to suggest to Americans that an unruly mob angry over an anti-Islamic video was to blame, officials said.

    Most of the details affirming al-Qaida links were edited or excluded from the unclassified talking points used by Rice the following weekend, officials confirmed Friday.

    Two days ago during his righteously indignant press conference, President Obama said that Rice was sent out on the Sunday shows at the behest of the White House. We now know that the talking points she used were edited by someone – and that the White House knew they had been edited. In other words, the White House knew that Rice would lie before she ever set foot on a television set. Rice is culpable for playing the flack for Obama. But Obama is right: we should be going after him. He knew. And he promoted lies to get him past election day.

    Ding Dong! 18,500 Hostess Jobs Dead

    RUSH: Look, here I’m already being asked, “Are you gonna talk about Hostess?” Yeah, I’m gonna talk about Hostess. You know what, 18,500 people gone, Hostess Twinkies, Ding Dongs, shut down. Some people might think it’s a buy opportunity if you want to get in the Ding Dong business. But folks, if you need an indication that the Democrats will never compromise on anything, look at this. Hostess is going out of business because of unions. Now, that’s 18,500 jobs. You would think in this economy that somebody might want to show the ability to compromise if only to fool people. They won’t even compromise on this.

    Unions are the Democrat Party. Trumka is at the White House again today. Won’t even compromise to save 18,500 jobs. Are you kidding me? Obama couldn’t step in here even for the optics of it? I mean, yesterday he saved New York. Today he could save Ding Dongs. He could save Twinkies, except at the White House Michelle’s probably celebrating, ’cause this is just rotten, no-good food to her. But, see, I think they wanted this, folks. I think they wanted Hostess bye-bye. And you know why? They wanted this to happen because this is just going to create more dependents on unions and the government. It’s just gonna create more dependents. So this is all fine with Barry.

    I know nobody understands me. I’m doing this program with a whole different mind-set now. Snerdley’s in there panicking. I’m saying mind-set. As I do this program I’m imagining how I’m being heard by all these uneducated, ill-educated, maleducated young people, and it’s fun, and I’m sure that they’re throwing daggers at their radio because they just heard me criticize Obama on this Hostess thing. Anyway it’s a funny thing. It’s actually a build-out on some of the things that we were discussing yesterday about the battles that we face really being cultural as well as, if not more than, politics. Anyway, the Hostess thing is what it is. It’s gone. We knew it was coming. It just illustrates there’s no desire to compromise.

    When the Democrats lose elections, for example, nobody ever runs around getting introspective, “Gee, you think we ought to become more pro-life? Gee, you think we ought to back off this immigration? Gee, you think we ought to become more conservative?” That never is said. When we lose, I don’t have to tell you.

    OT
    Jill Kelley and twin sister visited White House three times

    [……………]

    The White House official declined to identify the staffer who lunched with Kelley, but said the employee is not a senior member of the administration. That characterization stands in contrast to Kelley’s own boasts. In e-mails with the mayor of Tampa reported in The Huffington Post, Kelley crowed about visiting the White House days before the scandal broke. “I was at the WH with my friends in the Administration this weekend – the stress was surreal!” she wrote, according to The Huffington Post. “But glad POTUS has been reelected!”

    The official said anyone with dining privileges at the White House mess can bring a guest. The official also said that Kelley and her family went through the same security screening that all members of the public must go through to take the White House tour.

    The White House official also volunteered that Broadwell herself attended two meetings in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, within the White House complex. One meeting was in June 2009 with a staff member handling Afghanistan and Pakistan policy. The other meeting, in June 2011, was a briefing on Afghanistan-Pakistan policy for a group of approximately 20 attendees.

    The latter meeting took place a few hours before President Obama gave a prime-time speech to the nation on his plans to withdraw troops from Afghanistan.

    What are the leaders doing about this. She could be a very important lead. Possibly working for the WH. Who knows but we must write or call our representatives to find out how she is a part of the cover up. INVESTIGATIONS OF PETRAEUS STARTED WITH HER.

  • Patty

    Just remember how productive employees would be if they could be fired for being late or just not doing the work they are suppose too.

    Well, those workers aren’t in unions. They know they are there to do the work and part of a family that doesn’t criticizes a company that is paying them to work for them.

    THEY ARE CALL LOYALISTS. PEOPLE WHO APPRECIATE WORKING FOR A GREAT BOSS.

    THE KEY IS UNIONS ONLY CAUSE A GREAT DEAL OF HEARTACHE AND HEARTBREAK.

    I do understand you have no idea who’s writing here. A lot of us have experience with business, and unions, and some of us even do our own math.

    So, if you want to act like a snotty infant, feel free, and the rest of us will merrily ignore you. You later comment was a bit better, because you bothered to post a link. That’s a step in the right direction. Cleaning up your attitude is next.

  • thgirbla

    Think this Petition was posted by some caring person that wanted to save the Twinkie?
    Guess again!
    It was posted by the White House in their efforts to save the jobs of the UNION Ex Employee’s that drove the company into Bankruptcy!
    Sign it if you will, but it is just an effort to Nationalize the Co./Fed. Govt. Bailout in order to save the jobs of the UNION Ex Employee’s!
    I wouldn’t sign it on pure principal of the devious way that the White House is trying to fool those signing!

    For those of you that say this thing was put on by Obama, it wasn’t. It was put on by a morning radio host in Kansas City that goes by “Danny boy” on the radio. The station is “96.5 the buzz” it’s my personal favorite station and I’m listening to it right now as a matter of fact, and I was listening when danny boy jokingly made the petition. So please, argue about politics and the economy and other. things you obviously don’t know/understand all you want. But at least drop the Obama made it to make himself look good conspiracy theory because I know first hand it’s not true.
