Closing Chrysler’s Dealerships: The Reader’s Digest Version

The drones   liberals   progressives are seething. They’re sobbing hysterically at websites like Fred Silber’s 435.com.

Their issue? They’re trying to figure how to justify the closings of GOP-owned dealerships while ignoring the Democrat bigwigs who have just captured major new territories.

“Hey, it’s all statisticulus,” they say, “and you wingnuts can’t possibly figure out our vector arithmetic and such!”

Perhaps Frank at 432.com could consider the following:

Item 1: Using the list of all 789 dealerships to be closed, WND found that owners contributed $450,000 to GOP presidential candidates; $7,970 to Sen. Hillary Clinton; $2,200 to John Edwards and $450 to Barack Obama. For the “progressives” out there, that’s a 1000-to-1 ratio of GOP-to-Obama donations for closed dealerships.

Item 2: Dealership conglomerate RLJ is owned by Democrat bigwigs Mack McLarty and Robert Johnson. RLJ magically happened to keep all six (6) of their dealerships while its competitors were shuttered. McLarty is a former Clinton chief-of-staff and Robert Johnson (founder of BET) is a major Democrat fundraiser.

MoveOn Tells Specter to Move On!!

By Dena:

I have never been a fan of George Soros, the foreign billionaire entrepreneur whose sole purpose seems to be turn America into an European socialist wasteland. Yet I guess even someone like George can get something right once in a while. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. So while George maybe a broken clock, on this point he is right on time. The Move On membership, which is really the backbone of the Democratic party, has said that they don’t want Arlen Specter among their ranks.

Photo Ops more Important for White House!

A ‘Classified’ Photo Op Turns Into a Soaring Blunder for the White House

Mission to Get Beauty Shots of Presidential Jet at Statue of Liberty Panics 9/11-Wary New York

As secret missions go, this one was a flop.

On Monday morning, one of the 747s used to ferry around the U.S. president was dispatched to the Statue of Liberty, escorted by a fighter jet. Assignment: Get some fresh glamour shots of the plane.

The Air Force said the flight needed to remain confidential. So while New York police knew about it, as did at least one person in the mayor’s office, regular New Yorkers remained in the dark.

As a result, to onlookers Monday all across downtown Manhattan — where the World Trade Center once stood — the photo shoot looked like a terrorist attack. People watched in horror as a massive aircraft, trailed closely by an F-16 fighter jet, banked and roared low near the city, in a frightening echo of the events of Sept. 11, 2001.

Fearing the worst, thousands of people streamed out of the skyscrapers and into the streets. Some buildings ordered evacuations. “Oh God, it was mayhem in here, just mayhem,” says Rubin Shimon, manager of Styling Haircutters, a barbershop near Ground Zero. Many people took shelter in the shop to call loved ones on their cellphones.

It was all over in a half-hour or so. Then the finger-pointing began. “I’m annoyed — furious is a better word — that I wasn’t told,” said New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg at a news conference. He’d been scheduled to talk about a swine-flu outbreak at a Queens school, but also sounded off at the federal government for its “badly conceived” flyover plan.

He chastised his own office for its role in keeping the flyover secret. On Thursday night, city officials say, a junior mayoral aide had been alerted to the flyover by the Federal Aviation Administration, which requested that it be kept secret. Someone in City Hall alerted the New York Police Department, but no public announcement was made.

Marc Mugnos was reprimanded for not apprising the mayor, and a disciplinary letter was placed in his file, a spokesman said. Mr. Mugnos couldn’t be reached for comment.

The email sent to City Hall describes a “flying photo op” — government-speak for a publicity photo — to include two or possibly three passes over the area. The email, sent by an FAA official and reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, lists flight patterns and specifies a photo-op altitude of 1,000 to 1,500 feet.

The email specifies that the information “only be shared with persons with a need to know” and “shall not be released to the public.” It also says that, “Due to the possibility of public concern regarding [Department of Defense] aircraft flying at low levels, coordination with Federal, State and Local law enforcement agencies…has been accomplished.”

The email’s author, James J. Johnston, of FAA air traffic, declined to comment.

An Obama administration official said the mission was “classified” by the military and that the FAA, which controls much of the airspace over Manhattan, did what the military asked. “The mission was to send [the aircraft] up to get a picture of it flying around the Statue of Liberty,” this person said. “They said they needed to update their photo files.” President Obama wasn’t aboard.

The New York photo shoot wasn’t the only one planned. The White House had scheduled a follow-up session on May 5 or May 6 in Washington, D.C., according to two government officials. The D.C. flyover has now been canceled, a government official said.

Louis Caldera, a former Secretary of the Army who runs the White House Military Office, took the blame. “While federal authorities took the proper steps to notify state and local authorities in New York and New Jersey, it’s clear that the mission created confusion and disruption,” he said. “I apologize and take responsibility for any distress that flight caused.”

Mr. Caldera met Monday afternoon with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina “to hear the president’s displeasure,” an official said.

It was a beautiful spring day in the Big Apple — perfect for picture taking. The aircraft, painted in White House livery, was trailed by one F-16 fighter jet. The aircraft had flown from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, across New Jersey, down the Hudson River and then circled the Statue of Liberty before heading off.

For many who witnessed the maneuver, it stirred dark memories. Andrew Wybolt, who works for Barclays PLC in a skyscraper that borders the Hudson, said people rushed for the windows when they heard the planes. “They just started sprinting and freaking out,” he said.

Thousands of workers from Merrill Lynch, American Express and other companies in the buildings that ring the former World Trade Center site hustled for the exits. Many stood outside their offices, nervously looking up into the sky, while hundreds of others walked north, along the West Side Highway, as thousands of people had done the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.

“To do something like this to all these people who have already been through 9-11 is just wrong,” said Greg Forman, a broker at the New York Mercantile Exchange, which is located in a building along the Hudson river, across the street from the World Trade Center site.

One block north, construction workers on the 43-story Goldman Sachs Group Inc. tower said they had a close-up view of the low-flying plane. “I saw that thing coming and ran down the stairs,” said Eddie Navedo, who was clearing construction debris on the 23rd floor of the new building when he spotted the plane flying low over the river, then banking sharply to the west. “Everybody was saying, it’s a terrorist attack.”

Not everyone lost his cool. Mr. Shimon, the manager of the barbershop where people fled on Monday, was present for the attacks in 2001, and in fact at that time worked in a shop even closer to the World Trade Center than his current one. He watched the towers fall that day.

So did the events of Monday scare him? “To tell you the truth, not really,” Mr. Shimon said. “I didn’t think it was such a big deal. I’m a New Yorker.”

House Rep. calls Supreme Court Justice Homophobe!

Barney Frank: Antonin Scalia is a ‘Homophobe’

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.)

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.)

(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said in an interview Friday on 365gay.com that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is a “homophobe.”

“At some point, [the Defense of Marriage Act] is going to have to go to the United States Supreme Court,” Frank said. “I wouldn’t want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has too many votes on this current court.”

Frank also said in the interview that he thinks President Barack Obama will reverse the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy to allow homosexuals to serve openly in the U.S. military.

“Absolutely,” Frank said, concerning the policy.

Frank also predicted that Obama and a Democratic majority in Congress will pass three pro-homosexual laws in the coming months and years, including the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) that bans workplace discrimination because of sexual orientation; a hate crimes law for individuals who have had sex-change surgery; and a law to allow homosexuals to serve “openly” in the military.

“I think we will have the votes to pass ENDA, to pass hate crimes (law), and to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” Frank said in the video-interview.

The Real AIG Cover Up by the WH!

Stimulating AIG

Government: The administration that is expressing outrage over the AIG bonuses knew about them in advance. They were protected by Sen. Chris Dodd’s amendment to the stimulus package.

Perhaps if the White House had spent less time worrying about Rush Limbaugh and more time watching the bailout money, it wouldn’t have been caught flat-footed voicing faux outrage about the $165 million in bonuses to AIG execs that they now want back and Sen. Chris Dodd wants to tax out of existence.

President Obama was informed about the $165 million in bonuses due employees of the American Insurance Group the day before they were paid out last week, the White House said late Tuesday.

“In the last six months AIG has received substantial sums from the U.S. Treasury,” Obama said after allegedly hearing about it for the first time. “How do they justify this outrage to the taxpayers who are keeping the company afloat?”

Well, they justify it by saying they had the administration’s permission. The New York Times reports that AIG executives said they never would have proceeded with the bonus payments before getting approval from the Treasury and the Federal Reserve.

“We would never make any important business decisions without discussing them with our government managers and owners,” one AIG executive is quoted as saying.

The $165 million in bonuses were not the first bonuses to be paid. According to the Times report, Treasury and Fed officials said they knew AIG had paid $55 million in bonuses in December.

As Larry Kudlow notes in his column on the next page, “the Obama administration — including the president, Treasury man Tim Geithner and economic adviser Larry Summers — knew all about them many months ago. They were undoubtedly informed of this during the White House transition.”

The fact is, these bonuses were made legal by the $787 billion stimulus bill that President Obama promoted and signed. A provision, now known as the “Dodd Amendment,” was inserted into the bill by the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, Chris Dodd, D-Conn. It exempts from any restrictions bonuses contractually obligated before Feb. 11 of this year.

Dodd admits inserting an amendment, but without the language that exempts the AIG bonuses. “I can’t point a finger at someone who was responsible for putting those dates in,” Dodd told Fox Business. “I can tell you this much: When my language left the senate, it did not include it. When it came back, it did.”

So who exempted AIG in the stimulus bill? “Because of negotiations with the Treasury Department and the bill conferees, several modifications were made,” Dodd spokesperson Kate Szostak said cryptically in a response to Fox Business.

Negotiations with Treasury? What did Timothy Geithner know about this and when did he know it? If Dodd didn’t exempt AIG from bonus restrictions in the stimulus, who did?

Coincidentally, Sen. Dodd was AIG’s largest single recipient of campaign donations during the 2008 election cycle with $103,000, according to opensecrets.org.  Also coincidentally, one of the largest offices of AIG Financial Products, the division that concocted the goofy financial instruments that doomed AIG, is situated in Connecticut.

The second-largest AIG recipient, at $101,232, was the “choked up with anger” President Obama.  If AIG gives back the bonuses, will the president give back these and other campaign contributions from troubled institutions?

Maybe President Obama can answer these and other questions when he appears on Jay Leno Thursday night. Then again, maybe not.

Oh but where has almost half the bailout money to AIG gone?

Goldman Sachs, and guess where else “European banks”.
