First, from the Washington Examiner….Evidence appears to be mounting that the Obama administration has systematically targeted for closing Chrysler dealers who contributed to Republicans. What started earlier this week as mainly a rumbling on the Right side of the Blogosphere has gathered some steam today with revelations that among the dealers being shut down are a GOP congressman and closing of competitors to a dealership chain partly owned by former Clinton White House chief of staff Mack McLarty.
Second, from World Net Daily….As part of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Chrysler is terminating one-fourth of its franchises – but some say its catalog of doomed dealerships looks more like a hit list that specifically seeks to put Republican donors out of business…..The listed franchise owners contributed at least $450,000 to Republican presidential candidates and the GOP, while only $7,970 was donated to Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign and $2,200 was given to Sen. John Edwards’ campaign.
Third, from Freedom Republic….”The interesting part is who the three main owners of the company are. The owners are Steve Landers (long-time car dealer, 4th-generation dealer), Thomas “Mack” McLarty (former Chief of Staff for President Clinton), and Robert Johnson (founder of Black Entertainment Television and co-owner of the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats). Landers has given money to Republicans in the past, but McLarty campaigned for Obama in 2008, and Johnson has given countless amounts of money to Democrats over the years.”
Well now….isn’t that special? And illegal. And unethical….OH, sorry. This is Obama we’re talking about here. So, who’s gonna be man enough to stop him? Anyone? Anyone? Cowards.
The gun-thing again? from CNS….The only reason they want to take away our guns cuz they’re afraid we gonna SHOOT. “In Maloney v. Cuomo, Sotomayor signed an opinion of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit that said the Second Amendment does not protect individuals from having their right to keep and bear arms restricted by state governments….The opinion said that the Second Amendment only restricted the federal government from infringing on an individuals right to keep and bear arms. As justification for this position, the opinion cited the 1886 Supreme Court case of Presser v. Illinois.”
I guess it hadn’t occurred to them that it’s a creepy English cult, anyway….”National leaders of the Episcopal Church have ousted 61 clergy who aligned with a former bishop in California when he broke with the national church in a dispute over the Bible and homosexuality…..Former Bishop John-David Schofield led the Diocese of San Joaquin to become the first full diocese to secede from the U.S. denomination in 2007. Four years earlier, Episcopalians consecrated their first openly gay bishop, setting off a wide-ranging debate within the church and upsetting conservative congregations.” A sprinkle here, a little evolution there, and absolutely no talk of salvation.
Now here’s a stand up guy! From The Hill….Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) became the first senator Thursday to go on the record to say that he would vote against Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination to the Supreme Court. While many Republicans have opted to keep their powder dry, issuing statements about carefully reviewing President Obama’s pick to join the high court, Roberts flatly stated he wouldn’t support Sotomayor.
Interesting…considering he didn’t mind pushing his ex governor Kathleen Sebelius onto us for HHS Secretary; you know, the one that accepted money from Dr. George Tiller, late-term abortionist (murderer) during her campaign? I really have to wonder why he would think that Sonia Sotomayor could possibly be worse than a woman that supports killing children in utero up to days before natural birth?? It’s gotta be bad. Or Roberts wanted Sebelius out of Kansas, as did most Kansans.
Just when you think it can’t get much worse…read the news.
