Hot Air ^ | May 5, 2009 | ED MORRISSEY

Posted on 05/05/2009 11:42:03 AM PDT by RobinMasters

Business Insider reports that more than one Chrysler senior creditor has corroborated Thomas Lauria’s allegation that the Obama administration threatened them with public attacks if they didn’t surrender their contractual rights. One of their sources says that the Obama team comprises some of the worst “ends justify the means” people he’s ever encountered (via HA reader Geoff A):

This sounds like an indictable or impeachable offense.

Fascism

I called my senators and representative today and told them I want to see Congress investigate this issue. They said they had gotten alot of calls to that effect. If we keep up the pressure, they’ll call a hearing about it.

If you would like to be added or dropped from the Michigan ping list, please freepmail me.

Any thoughts on just how ignored by the MSM this story will continue to be? It doesn't matter if fifty people step forward to corroborate the threats. They weren't threats, after all. What's done has been done for the greater good.

"I called my senators and representative today and told them I want to see Congress investigate this issue. They said they had gotten alot of calls to that effect. If we keep up the pressure, they’ll call a hearing about it."

I followed your lead and called my senators and representative as well. Unfortunately, being represented by Arlen Specter and Bob Casey doesn't do much good on this front, and Representative Schwartz's staffer was completely clueless. I tried to educate him a bit, since he was a pleasant man. I compared it to losing his house in foreclosure and having it given to the gardener rather than the bank holding the note. He promised to pass along my request for an investigation. It was the first call he knew of.

Since my own elected reps seemed so useless, I also called Senator DeMint's office to request an investigation and to thank him for supporting Pat Toomey. It made me feel a little better . . .

No way until and unless the GOP takes over Congress in the midterm elections of 2010.

IMHO they were throwing pixie dust in your face.

Demonrat legislators are up to their eyeballs in slime, they are not going to start investigating anybody in, under, beside or around Barack The One.

Obama team comprises some of the worst “ends justify the means” people he’s ever encountered

Saul Alinski's Rules for Radicals.

This is the book, philosophy, Oboma used to teach ACORN their fascist tactics as a community organizer. This book describes how to use this technique to reach a goal.

Alinski gave all praise to Lucifer, the first left wing radical that broke all the rules and still inherited a kingdom.

Those of you who doubt Oboma could be the expected Antichrist may want to think again. He hasn't missed a step yet, and he still has 7 years to go.

“...last night that a judge ordered dissident lenders in Chrysler to reveal their identities adds angst to the societal spectrum, like tossing chicken wings to the pitbull public. What was Chrysler’s crime? Exercising fiduciary responsibility on behalf of its investors.”

Judge Napolitano went all postal on obama’s meddling in the law and the courts last night on FOX News Happy hour. Very troubling.

That’s what Judge Napolitano said last night on FOX Business.

Instead of a president, we got a hood from the ‘hood trying to pimp for the UAW by scaring off the owners of Chrysler.

Smacks of totalitarianism, tyranny, DICTATORSHIP

Serious business this ...
Foolish men will not believe what is in front of their eyes. Always supposing that it will get better: there has been downturns before; and it worked out okay ...

so ... it will do the same thing now ... WRONG!

Calls to our Representatives and Senators are all well and good; however, as we know ... they say one thing and do another.

Right now they are in the drivers seat, and they have every intention to make such changes as they desire with no plan to go back to former/previous CONSTITUTIONAL WAYS.

All this rabble rousing is just that ... to no effect. We are being subverted (as a government) everyday as fast as they can pass the laws,and make executive orders. MO The powers are EXPANDED ALREADY.

REALIZE IT!
