Thanks, Talkradio03. Can’t listen to it right now, but I’m putting a placemarker here until morning. Sounds like it’s just what a person needs to hear over a cup of mornin’ coffee and an aspirin, or two, or seven.

...an aspirin, or two, or seven.

In my wilder days, I always found that rootbeer floats or Strawberry soda offered the fastest relief for the Saturday morning "blues." ;^) I know, it sounds crazy, but I swear it worked to settle both stomach and shaky hands. I used to get the ol' post-party "blues" many mornings of the week and had a lot of practice battling them!

Am writing this post in part with hopes to make you smile (and maybe find a surprising remedy), but mostly, like you, to ping myself with a placeholder to check out this thread in the mawnin'.

Apart from the appalling specter of the United States government edging close to committing extortion, this affair betrays the government's control of the media by its own acknowledgment.

If one was wondering why the mainstream media has not stepped up to its traditional role to question the government especially as it embarks on radical new policies, one need search no further for the answer.

Thanks Caribou, I know it’s late, I stayed up all night going after this story, there was transcripts by no audio, I finally got a hold of it, I hope this makes a splash. If it were a Republican, the man who made this statement would have 20 news trucks outside on his front lawn...

Looks like we are gonna have to do the heavy lifting...

Chet - despite the fact that you and I have one or two areas of disagreement, and I have posted a few snarky comments to you in the past, on this we can agree.

Life is imitating art (or fiction in this case.)

I would that it would imitate it even further, but alas, I have yet to find a real-life John Galt or Ragnar Danneskold, although I have fancied myself in the mentor role of Akston, should suitable individuals present themselves.

Ping list members, upon rare occasion I will ping you on a subject that I believe should be brought to the attention of all! This ping is one of them!

A "must listen" by noted freeper, Mark Levin.

Attorney for Chrylser lenders who object to the sale, in his own words, had one of his Clients threatened by the Obama Whitehouse, and that his reputation would be destroyed.

Holy cow LVD. I just listened to this. Remember how smug Obama was when mentioned those evil hedge fund holders at his last PC? How they were holding out and holding up the process of the Chrysler/Fiat UAW takeover.

I guess a few thugs will get filthy rich and the automakers will get subsidized by the American taxpayer for life. Nice gig if you can get it.

Are we in the Soviet Union?

“One of my clients was directly threatened by the White House, and in essence compelled to withdraw its opposition to the deal under threat that the full force of the White House press corps would destroy its reputation if it continued to fight. That’s how hard it is to stand on this side of the fence.”

What saith members of the White House Press Corp? Any and all of them who deny complicity should be standing up at the next O presser and screaming about this. They have been slandered . . . . or outed.

Also adding that I will be saying prayers for this lawyer, and especially his client.

May all enemies of good, of Freedom, and of Liberty, and of God’s laws, lay traps for themselves and all who “lay in wait” with them for spoils, as the Book of Proverbs warns.

Truly, Obama’s Administration will eventually fall from their arrogance, deceitful nature, their pure lies, their sins against humanity and the sanctity of life, and disregard for our American Rule of Law, our Society, and for ourselves and our fellow citizens.

My prayers that they are called out and discovered beyond a shadow of a doubt, sooner versus later before more people suffer from Obama’s actions and intentions.

Some would argue more like Early Nazi Germany, or Italy. But I’m still divided on that. What I believe we are seeing is a Wannabe-Fascist/Communist Muslim Dictator beginning to truly flex his muscles (as if the first 100 days haven’t been proof enough).

Where are Woodward and Bernstein? Are they still alive? This is an execrable abuse of power, not only the extortion of the investor, but also the brag that the White House controls the press! Seems I read somewhere the government may not impede the freedom of the press. Here, they are bragging about controlling the press.

This goes to the virtual abolition of the most fundamental founding principles of our nation.

I got to hear this live on Frank Beckmann and I was stunned.

Hundreds of years of Contract Law, out the window. Unsecured lenders (UAW) coming to the front of the line in front of bond holders, reminiscent of Stalin giving the masses the land after "removing" the farmers. Mis-use of power by the executive branch, in a Nixonian Fashion, taken to a new level.

Obama owns this deal and IMHO the GM one as well when it happens.

I spoke to a "gnome" yesterday, a little background on Fiat.

They seem to have a reputation for getting into deals like, this, pay any price to get what they want, shut down what they don't and skedaddle. My guess is they want the dealerships, Jeep and maybe the Mini-Vans. Which will be a real interesting WWII power play replay as VW tries to become the No 1 automaker in the world. Why do I bring the Mini-Van into this? Chrysler makes VW's Mini-Van in Canada. It may be fun to watch Fiat and VW try to screw each other over....

Jeery Flint over at Forbes noted on the Frank Beckmann show that it will take Fiat 2 to 3 years to being the 500 here, here is why I agree with him. An article 6 months or a year ago in one of the Detroit papers noted that Ford's Mulally made a command decision when he came aboard to go to their Euro fuel efficient cars, and they had pictures of them all in the article. The 1st will be the Fiesta in the fall. Mulally came aboard Ford almost 2 years ago now, do the math, unless I am wrong, I come up with 33 months, and I will assume Ford is a finer tuned machine in terms of worldwide divisions. Fiat and Chyrsler have NO divisions or synergies, zero zip nada. In terms of corporate Culture and Engineering/Manufacturing Standards, Tools, and Practices, this is a marriage without any dating, they don't know each other, in fact, they may have very little in common. The car will have to be Federalized in emissions and safety from Euro Specs to American Specs and yes they are different. My guess is much redesign will need to occur unless they are absolutely $h!+ lucky and it passes crash test, or any other test without redesign.

So when the Obamaton's say they can bring the Fiat 500 here in a year, they are full of you know what IMHO....

And if they try to bring it to the front of the line in terms of Federal testing facility or some other type of special treatment, my guess is Competitors have an Anti-Trust lawsuit on their hands against the Obama-Adminstration, Freeper legal eagles, tell me if I am wrong here..... ,

That little car may be the piece of proverbial bling-bling millstone around his neck that brings down his administration in the next election cycle. At some point middle of the road Americans are going to be tear-@$$ paying billions to keep Chrysler afloat to get this sub-par shoe box for billions, when they could have purchased a Fiesta, Yaris etc. that are here (or will be soon) and they work.
