If you read the article in the link below, you will notice that Cerberus also managed to acquire Chrysler from his good friend Barack.





SOMETHING YOU MAY NOT KNOW THAT IS HAPPENING


For the last several years a company called The Freedom Group has been buying up gun and ammunition manufacturers.Some of the companies are Bushmaster,Marlin,Remington,DPMS, Dakota Arms and H&R. Some people worry that this Freedom Group is going to control most of the firearms companies in the United States. If you control the manufacturers you can decide to stop selling to civilians.What a perfect way to control guns.

Now if you do somedigging you will see that The Freedom Group is owned by a company called Cerberus Capital Management.

Guess who controls Cerberus??? GEORGE SOROS !!!!!!!!! One of the most evil men on this planet who wants to restrict or ban all civilian guns.

Please pass this on to all your freedom loving friends. This needs to come out.Why have we not heard about this in the "mainstream" media? I would think this would be BIG news.

If you don't know who George Soros is you need to do some research. He backed Obama with millions of dollars and Obama is a puppet on a string controlled by Soros.

Send this to every gun owner in America.

The WSJ reports tonight that Cerberus is preparing an initial public offering for Freedom Group, a little known company that it started in 2006 and has grown into a big player in the rifle industry.

The deal, of course, will prove to be a headline writer’s dream: (Cerberus Guns for IPO; Cerberus Aims to Take Freedom Group Public). It could also prove to be a profit machine for the private equity firm, as it cashes in on the growing market for guns and ammunition.

Here are some nuggets about Freedom Group:

Largest unit: Remington Arms Company. In April 2007, Cerberus bought the nearly 200 year-old rifle manufacturer for $118 million and assumed $252 million in debt. Remington sells guns and ammo for hunters, police and the military, including classic shotguns and state-of-the art sniper weapon systems. Remington was bought by the Dupont Corp. during the Great Depression and later by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, a private equity firm, which sold the company to Cerberus.

Cerberus Fan: “One positive aspect to Cerberus’ involvement in the gun industry is that the huge political clout Cerberus commands as the “rescuer” of Chrysler Corp. (which Cerberus also acquired) should undermine efforts to ban AR-platform rifles,’’ wrote the Accurate Shooter.com in December 2007. “Cerberus is big enough to make waves in Washington. Money talks in politics and Cerberus has lots of it.”

Cerberus Critic: “Understandably, Cerberus is trying to brand their firearms companies under a new name: Freedom Group, Inc. I’m sure they’ve probably conducted a poll that finds gun owners are not the types who are thrilled with a private group taking $4 billion in tax dollars to bailout one of the worst investments: Chrysler. This would be the same firm that decided to take out full page ads in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution to the tune of $400K+ thanking taxpayers for giving up their hard earned dough to continue supporting a dying company….. I’m saying it in the interest of full disclosure since I have a history of calling out PR campaigns for what they are,’’ wrote ‘Bitter’ on the blog “Bitchin’ in the Kitchen” in Feb. 2009

Cerberus’s Gun Guy: George Kollitides, a Cerberus managing director, is helping oversee Freedom Group. He has twice run unsuccessfully for an NRA board seat. His campaign platform says he’s a “true sporting sportsman” who has “lobbied for the Second Amendment politically, in the field and on the range.” In endorsing his 2009 candidacy, Guns & Ammo magazine said Kollitides “is a person who is engaged in the shooting sports industry on a daily basis and lives in our world of hunting and shooting.”

Lethal Weapon: Remington makes the R-15, a semi-automiatic rifle in the AR-15 family of guns. Remington markets the R-15 to the “modern predator aficionado.”

Another Freedom Group Holding: Advance Armament Corp. which makes silencers for hand guns and submachine guns and has a skull for a company logo.

On May 14, 2007, DaimlerChrysler announced the sale of 80.1% of Chrysler Group to American private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management, L.P., thereafter known as Chrysler LLC, although Daimler (renamed as Daimler AG) continued to hold a 19.9% stake.[30] The deal was finalized on August 3, 2007.[31] On April 27, 2009, Daimler AG signed a binding agreement to give up its remaining 19.9% stake in Chrysler LLC to Cerberus Capital Management and pay as much as $600 million into the automaker's pension fund.[32]

after reading several sites such as fact-check and snopes discount this as rumor, by their thinking the link from Cerberus and soros doesn't exist...

Over the weekend, several Spanish newspapers said billionaire investor George Soros, U.S. hedge-fund group Paulson & Co. and private-equity groups Cerberus Capital Management and Blackstone Group were set to meet executives of lender NovaCaixaGalacia to discuss possible investments.

Days earlier, a report in Spanish daily El Economista said Cerberus and Paulson & Co. were looking at unlisted cajas Banco Mare Nostrum and Banco Base. Mare Nostrum is reportedly set to merge with Caja Duero-España, creating the fourth-largest savings bank.

but since Soro's fund avoided public disclosures it would be difficult to now see a direct connection ...
