The Obama Administration argued Monday that no court, including the Supreme Court, has the authority to hear a challenge by Indiana benefit plans to the role the U.S. Treasury played in the Chrysler rescue, including the use of “bailout” (TARP) funds. The Indiana debt holders, U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan wrote, simply have no right to raise that issue, thus putting it out of the reach of the courts.Remember when Radical Judicial Activists legislating from the bench was not so clearly obviously Stabbing Our Troops In The Back?????
The government’s brief opposing a plea to delay the Chrysler sale can be downloaded here. The main case at the Court is Indiana State Police Pension Trust, et al., v. Chrysler LLC (application 08A1096). (The other filings in the Chrysler proceeding before the Court, and this blog’s weekend coverage, can be found at this link.)
All of the legal filings expected in the Chrysler case are now before Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as Circuit Justice, and thus she or the full Court could now act on the three applications to postpone the sale of most of the auto company’s assets to a new company representing a combination with Fiat, the Italian auto company.
Unless the Supreme Court is prepared to grant full review of the Chrysler deal and decided it on the merits by June 15 (a cutoff date set by Fiat), Kagan said, entry of a stay order “could itself have the effect of preventing the sale from going forward.”

Oh, hold it, if the Obamanation is the Socialist Welfare Statist National Socilist Marxianist Stabbing Our Troops in the back, doesn't the law of excluded middle, or the law of destroying any reality, mandate that now the Supreme Court are the Glorious Military Heroes defeating the Spawns of Satan From The Burning Sulphorous pits of Hell as fore told in the No Childe Right Behinde saga ( not to be confused with the Red Communist Blue Helmetted One Worlder Stab Our Troops In The Back God Hating Radical Left Wing No child left behind saga - which is unamerican. ( this one was for you swingland ) since true war heroes only support the correct doctrines.... )
Either way the Unbelievers are not our friends, and we MUST make the DOD the Profit Center, to stop creepy socialism...
