    Exclamation Time to follow the money! Track this one and you'll get sick to the pit of your stom

    Bloom, who will keep his role as senior adviser to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, will be helping the administration develop policies to assist the beleaguered U.S. manufacturing industry, the Journal reported.

    According to the White House, he will be working with a variety of agencies, including the Departments of Commerce, Treasury, Energy and Labor, to implement Obama administration's strategies.

    A former labor negotiator, Bloom has been a rising star within the administration. He spent the early part of the year negotiating labor deals central to the Obama administration's auto rescues, impressing administration officials.

    Obama praised his skills, saying, "Ron has the knowledge and experience necessary to lead the way in creating the good-paying manufacturing jobs of the future."

    Bloom took over in July as head of the auto industry restructuring team after Steven Rattner, chief architect of the bailouts to General Motors Co. and Chrysler LLC, left to return to New York.

    The announcement follows a weekend when another senior adviser, Van Jones, resigned amid controversy. The administration has been coming under intensifying criticism for its reliance on advisers with major roles and significant authority, but do not need to go through the Senate confirmation process.

    Exclamation Bloom is a former Union Bigshot

    Steve Rattner, the former New York investment banker who had overseen President Obama’s auto task force, is leaving his post and will be replaced by Ron Bloom, a former union official.

    An administration official said Rattner was leaving on his own.

    “He determined that this was the right decision for him and his family at this time,” said the administration official.

    Rattner’s move, a day before Obama makes his first trip as president to Michigan, comes as two of the Big Three auto companies, General Motors and Chrysler, try to chart a new path out of bankruptcy and government support.

    "We are extremely grateful to Steve for his efforts in helping strengthen GM and Chrysler, recapitalize GMAC and support the American auto industry," said Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner in a statement. "I hope that he takes another opportunity to bring his unique skills to government service in the future."

    Bloom, a Harvard Business-trained banker turned United Steelworkers official, will “assume leadership of the Task Force's activities as the government transitions its role away from day-to-day restructuring to monitoring this vital industry and protecting the substantial investment the American taxpayers have made in GM, Chrysler, and GMAC,” Geithner said.

    Bloom is expected to take over shortly, according to an administration official, who noted the new car czar had worked with Rattner on the task force for the past few months.

    Exclamation Ron Bloom A Labor Zionist? (Socialist)

    Socialist Zionism
    Socialist Zionism
    Socialist Zionism (or Labor Zionism) strove to achieve Jewish national and social redemption by fusing Zionism with Socialism. Its founder was Nachman Syrkin, who promulgated this view shortly before the third Zionist Congress (1899).

    Its philosophy was based on the assumption that the problem of Diaspora Jewry would remain unsolved even after the Socialist revolution, and that the solution to the anomaly of Jewish existence was the emigration of Jews to, and their concentration in, a territorial base. Dov Ber Borochov, a prominent advocate of Socialist Zionism, argued that the development of capitalism would inevitably prompt Jews to immigrate to Palestine, and that only there could the economic structure of the Jewish people be reconstituted as a base for the class struggle of the Jewish proletariat. Zionism, he asserted, is a historic-economic necessity for the Jewish people and the historic role of spearheading the Jewish national liberation process is reserved for the Jewish proletariat.

    Disagreements about the conceptual and philosophical foundations of Socialist Zionism, the methods to use in achieving it in Palestine and relations with Socialist organizations and parties in other countries, led to the formation of many and sundry Socialist Zionist parties. Some of these entities eschewed Marxist terminology and refrained from explicitly terming themselves Socialist. Others, considering themselves more Socialist and less Zionist, forswore membership in the Zionist Organization at various times.

    The Socialist Zionist idea gave rise to many pioneering youth movements, such as Hashomer Hatz'air and Hehalutz. The leaders of Socialist Zionist parties were among the most prominent in the pre-independence Palestine community and the State of Israel; David Ben-Gurion, Yitzhak Ben-Zvi and Berl Katznelson are but three examples. Socialist Zionism is the progenitor of most of Israel's settlement movements and the Israel Labor Party, one of Israel's two main political parties.


    Ron Bloom is scheduled to become the Car Czar for the United States[1] .He is currently working for the United States Department of the Treasury, serving as a member of the Auto Task Force created by President Barack Obama. He was previously the special assistant to the President of the United Steel Workers based out of Pittsburgh since 1996. Before that he worked as a Investment Banker. Bloom grew up in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania and is a graduate of Wesleyan University. He also received an M.B.A. from the Harvard School of Business.[2]
