Another Obama Lie: Your GM or Chrysler Warranty will be Safe with US

It's much more difficult to find instances when Barack Obama has told the truth than when he lies, which almost makes this post anti-climatic. However, it is noteworthy, nonetheless because once word gets out that the warranties of GM and Chrysler car owners are NOT backed by the full faith and credit of the United States, there will be even less of them sold.

In 2009, Obama assured owners of GM and Chrysler automobiles that their warranties would still be honored. After all, the US government was running those companies and people had nothing to fear.

Via Autoweek in March of 2009:
In a bid to boost flagging auto sales, the federal government will pay for any warranty repairs on a General Motors or Chrysler vehicle if either company can't because of financial problems or a bankruptcy filing, President Barack Obama said on Monday.

"Let me say this as plainly as I can. If you buy a car from Chrysler or General Motors, you will be able to get your car serviced and repaired just like always," Obama said in a speech. "Your warranty will be safe. In fact, it will be safer than it has ever been. Because starting today, the United States will stand behind your warranty."

GM and Chrysler are at a high risk of bankruptcy as they face some of the lowest U.S. sales rates in 27 years, analysts have said. The government on Monday took several actions to help shore up the two automakers after forcing the resignation of GM CEO Rick Wagoner.

"Given where the industry is, these highly unprecedented actions are consistent with the unprecedented times we're in," Standard & Poor's analyst Robert Schulz told Reuters today.
Ah, but that was more than two years ago, which is well past the expiration date on virtually all of Obama's promises. Today, GM (Obama Motors) is saying that any GM car under warranty before the bankruptcy will not be repaired under the terms of any warranty.

Via Reuters:
General Motors Co (GM.N) is seeking to dismiss a lawsuit over a suspension problem on more than 400,000 Chevrolet Impalas from the 2007 and 2008 model years, saying it should not be responsible for repairs because the flaw predated its bankruptcy.

The lawsuit, filed on June 29 by Donna Trusky of Blakely, Pennsylvania, contended that her Impala suffered from faulty rear spindle rods, causing her rear tires to wear out after just 6,000 miles. [ID:nN1E7650CT]

Seeking class-action status and alleging breach of warranty, the lawsuit demands that GM fix the rods, saying that it had done so on Impala police vehicles.

But in a recent filing with the U.S. District Court in Detroit, GM noted that the cars were made by its predecessor General Motors Corp, now called Motors Liquidation Co or "Old GM," before its 2009 bankruptcy and federal bailout.
It would appear that no matter how hard he tries to avoid the laws of economics, they might just be catching up to Obama. This is not something he can easily dismiss, either. In essence, he is the GM of OM, regardless of what figurehead has that title on his desk.

What will be interesting to find out is the number of Obamautomatons who are in this predicament? What percentage of them will be able to figure this out? Of those who do, what percentage of them will actually put their pride aside and affix blame where it belongs - on the liar-in-Chief.

Video: Maxine Waters says 'Tea Party can go Straight to Hell'

At a 'Kitchen Table Summit' that took place at Inglewood High School, Rep. Maxine Waters - who happens to be a registered member of the Democratic Socialists of America caucus - told a very sympathetic crowd that 'the Tea Party can go straight to hell.' How is that civil tone working for you? In this KABC news report, that is the money line but there's another revealing statement from one of the attendees, which comes very early in this clip. The first person in the audience who appears in this news reports demands to know what this country can do for her.

Proof positive that this Democrat Party is not JFK's Democrat Party.

Indonesia Mayor: If Street Name is Islamic, Church can't be Built on it

If you've ever heard the term, 'creeping sharia' this is how it works. It is the incremental ratcheting up of Islamic law. Here is a prime example in Indonesia. If you're a Christian who would like to build a church on some land you already possess in the city of Bogor, Indonesia, you'd better check out your street sign first. If the name of the street is Islamic, you are not permitted to build that church. Are there mosques constructed on streets with Christian names? Apparently so.

Via Jakarta Globe:
Bogor’s controversial mayor says he has a new reason not to allow the GKI Yasmin church to open — the name of the street on which it is built has an Islamic name.

Home Affairs Minister Gamawan Fauzi said Bogor Mayor Diani Budiarto — who continues to defy rulings from the Supreme Court and Ombudsman Commission to open the church — had told him that a church should not be built on a street with an Islamic name.

“[Diani] said that it is a fact that the street is named after a noted Islamic Ulama,” Gamawan said at the Vice Presidential Palace on Friday.

GKI Yasmin is located on Jalan Abdullah bin Nuh, an Islamic leader from Cianjur in West Java.

Local cleric Muhammad Mustofa, whose father is the street’s namesake, has previously stated that he has no objection to the church.

Mustofa, who said that Islam was a religion that promoted peace, said differences between religions were not new and similar problems had occurred since the time of Prophet Mohammad.

“Mecca is an example of pluralism during the prophet’s time. Every problem has its solution and hopefully the problem [surrounding the church] will be settled immediately,” he said.
Though it's good to hear the son of the street's namesake support the right of the church, it's interesting that he referred to 'pluralism' in Mecca during the time of Mohammad but not in the present day.

The Home Affairs Minister agrees with the mayor and his logic is similar to that of Al Capone:
“This is the political reality in the field and it could cause disturbances to security and peace,” Gamawan said. “It would not be healthy in the long run, even for the congregation members themselves. [Diani] told me that he has offered an alternative location with the same [dimensions].”

Gamawan said he would summon Diani next week to discuss possible solutions to the conflict.

“We need to mediate ... but we also need to maintain security and peace,” Gamawan said.

Church spokesman Bona Sigalingging said Diani’s reasoning was unacceptable given that a number of churches were built on streets with Islamic names and mosques were built on streets with Christian names.

Bona said the church would refuse to accept any offer of alternative premises.

“The problem is it against the law, against the court ruling and against the recommendation of Ombudsman. It also breaches legal certainty.”

Ombudsman Commission chairman Danang Girindrawardana told the Jakarta Globe on Friday that the street name issue was a “made-up excuse.”
Made-up excuse? In Islam, there is a reason for everything. If you can prevent churches from being built on streets with Islamic names, one day you can have existing churches on streets with Islamic names torn down OR you can have a lobbying arm to re-name the streets to reflect an allegiance to Islam.

Creeping sharia...
