Freeper Gets "Shout Out" On Fox and Friends For Chrysler Research
Fox and Friends/Michelle Malkin | 5-28-09

Posted on 05/28/2009 5:51:17 AM PDT by icwhatudo

Michelle Malkin was on Fox and Friends this morning discussing the Chrysler dealership closings and credited Joey Smith (Freeper smith5460) for his work in examining possible political reasons for the closings.

Freeper smith5460 has created a blog to update us on his research:

http://chryslerdealershipshutdown.blogspot.com

His work was first picked up by Doug Ross and then RedState. It then went to Michelle Malkin and is now on Newsmax, and the Wall Street Journal among many many others.

Bravo, smith5460! Michelle Malkin also blasted Mr. O. to the Friends for knocking her Hot Air blog on the air last night.

Fascism comes to America. Not only do they lose their property, but BO puts an end to those contributions.

Excellent - this is the sort of quality research - connecting the factual dots, that is so lacking in the Repub world.

The mainstream media's reaction will be "move on, nothing to see here." They'll try to prevent this from getting any publicity, and if that fails, act like there is nothing out of the ordinary about this course of action.

Tito wouldn't have given Milovan Djilas a Zastava dealership--why should Obama let a contributor to the Republicans have an Obamamobile dealership?

Are you sure he wants his name out there? I guess the media has already revealed it. I hope he has his taxes in order. Lucky for him, it’s a fairly common name, I would imagine.

Also, I bet right now some leftwing media loser is going through all of his old posts looking for something to discredit him with. Like what they did to Jerome Corsi.

Next time we hear Rather or Gibbs or the usual clowns repeat the lie, “bloggers just snipe at the MSM, they never come up with original stuff”, here’s a good rebuttal.

He published it on his blog and its credited by Malkin and Ross so I guess he’s ok with it. Might not be his real name anyway-lol. I just wanted to make sure he got the credit for what has to be some long tedious work.

There are times when someone goes beyond the legal scope of duties and becomes personally subject to criminal and civil prosecution. My question, is if this has happened with Obama and his henchies.

If dealerships have been shut down because of political affiliation, this could be a prosecutable criminal conspiracy which involves Obama. It could be also (obviously) be cause for a massive class action lawsuit naming Obama personally and a lawsuit for which he may not be able to claim immunity. Further, Obama is trained in the law, and it might be difficult for him to claim ignorance.

Impeachment, special prosecutor, criminal and civil actions. Of course we ARE talking about a Democrat, so we won't be holding our collective breaths.

Hopefully this can get the traction that the exposure of Dan Rather's counterfeit Texas ANG memos did. FReepers were the first stones in the truth landslide that crushed Rather. I would love to see a repeat on someone much higher up than Rather.

We have a lot of dealerships in ok and none were shut down. We are a notorious red state.

I have the dealerships shutdown list in a Database with zip, city state and Owner if you want it. They can be matched to donations.

I can’t get the bottom site to work properly today. I will send that link to my neighbor. The dealer he works for is closing in less than two weeks. I sent him an email the other day, and the owner had also gotten info from a sister dealer in N Texas about this issue. Laura Ingraham is talking about this on her show today.

Tubebender, thanks to smith5460, we now know why Lithia now has a Chrysler/Jeep Monopoly in Eureka.

http://chryslerdealershipshutdown.blogspot.com/search/label/Lithia%20Motors

Great work smith5460!

I don’t follow the local news, and some younger relatives were asking what I knew about 0b0z0 approve Chrysler Dealerships getting basically monopolies in parts of California, Oregon and Washington.

One younger relative, a refugee from the Green Commie Controlled state of Oregon, had heard from friends still behind the Green Curtain that funny things were happening re the closing of many dealers in that area.

Now we know what is happening here and there.

Last but not least, apparently a Chrysler dealer was closed in San Jose (White owners) and there will be a black owned dealership close to the closed dealership.

Great job by smith5460.

Maybe a lot of Freepers and friends/relatives of ours need to read up on how the Fascists in Germany and Italy ended up with their Fascist buddies controlling most of the industry in those two countries before and during WWII.

“Fascism comes to America. Not only do they lose their property, but BO puts an end to those contributions.”

Yep, socialism for 0b0z0’s voter peons of color and white guilt voters. Then, he brings Fascism for his rich friends and contributors.

It would be difficult to find, throughout history, any time that a collectivist gained power where he didn’t use the power of the government to punish and exterminate his political opposition.

It would be equally difficult to find a case where a classical liberal came to power and did the same thing.
