obama high speed rail system promise to take money from people sad hill news

[Big Government linked to Sad Hill News again - HERE - Thanks!]

How glorious, watching investigative reporters on primetime news meticulously dissect the $535 million Obama-Solyndra connection while co-anchors squeeze in comprehensive charts and detailed explanations on where all of the taxpayer’s stimulus money went since Obama needs another ‘this-will-fix-it’ $300 billion; oops, now $400 billion; hold it, ok, $450 billion.

No?

Fine, but MSM wouldn’t also be ignoring Project Gunrunner and the Obama-GE connection simply because AP Members such as The Washington Post and CBS receive $ millions in ObamaCare subsidies bribes? I mean, that would be a conspiracy.

Yeah, MSM investigative journalism – R.I.P. – was deep-sixed long ago. And by effectively morphing their so-called ‘news’ into shock value diatribes, the media dealers created highly-addictive entertainment for the masses — a Pavlovian condition, supplemented with your tax dollars and endorsed by big government.

What’s not to like? It’s topical. It’s comfortable. It’s guaranteed ‘free’ stimuli with zero call to action served up day after day, after day, after day,…

Press lever. Receive pellet.

Translation: Press button on TV remote (click bookmarked MSM web browser tab). Receive sensationalism laced with carefully selected talking points that mask giant government takeover.

Government? This is not government. This is an auction where policy goes to the highest bidder:

Solyndra ‘Green’ Executives: $100,000+ In Obama Donations And 20+ White House Trips

(Daily Caller) Not only does the now-bankrupt solar energy firm Solyndra have a cozy financial  relationship with the Obama administration, company representatives also made numerous visits to the White House to meet with administration officials, The Daily Caller has learned.

According to White House visitor logs, between March 12, 2009, and April 14, 2011, Solyndra officials and investors made no fewer than 20 trips to the West Wing. In the week before the administration awarded Solyndra with the first-ever alternative energy loan guarantee on March 20, four separate visits were logged.

George Kaiser, who has in the past been labeled a major Solyndra investor as well as a Obama donor, made three visits to the White House on March 12, 2009, and one on March 13. Kaiser has denied any direct involvement in the Solyndra deal and through a statement from his foundation said he “did not participate in any discussions with the U.S. government regarding the loan.”

But the countless meetings at the White House seem hardly coincidental. Kaiser, in fact, is responsible for 16 of the 20 meetings that showed up on the White House logs.

In the meetings on March 12, Kaiser met with former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors Austan Goolsbee at 11 a.m., Senior Advisor Pete Rouse at 3 p.m., and Deputy Director of the Domestic Policy Council Heather Higginbottom at 6:30 p.m. On the 13th, Kaiser met with Deputy Director of the National Economic Council Jason Furman at 9 a.m.

Other Solyndra officials that made the trek over to the White House include Chairman and Founder Christian Gronet on September 22, 2009, at 9:30 a.m.; and Board Members Thomas Baruch and David Prend.

Baruch went to the White House May 7, 2010, and September 20, 2010, at 8:40 a.m. and 1 p.m., respectively. Prend visited on September 21, 2010, at 9:15 p.m.

The visitor logs also show that a number of members of the administration a loan guarantee for Solyndra pressing enough to take meetings. Former Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel and Adviser Valerie Jarrett even took meetings with Kaiser.

As TheDC previously reported, Solyndra officials, including Kaiser himself, donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Barack Obama.

Kaiser personally donated $53,500 to Obama’s presidential campaign in 2008. Ben Bierman, executive vice president of operations donated $5,500 to Obama, and Karen Alter, senior vice president of marketing gave $23,000, just to name a few.

In 2009, Solyndra secured a $535 million loan guarantee from the U.S. Treasury to produce solar panels. But on August 31, 2011, the company shut its doors and announced its intent to file for bankruptcy.

The revelation came after President Obama visited the plant in May 2010 and touted it as a shining light for the future of green jobs and a green-energy economy.

“The promise of clean energy isn’t just an article of faith — not anymore,” Obama said at the time. “The future is here.”

The future was bankruptcy.

UPDATE #2: Obama Administration On Solyndra Board For Months During $500 Million Loss

(Zip) Officials from the Department of Energy have for months been sitting in on board meetings as “observers” at Solyndra, getting an up-close view as the solar energy company careened towards bankruptcy after spending more than $500 million in federal loan money.

Word of the Energy Department’s unusual arrangement came as federal agents on Thursday converged on the California headquarters of the failed solar company, focusing fresh attention on the first corporate beneficiary of President Obama’s stimulus program to create new clean energy jobs.

    The highest bidder indeed! Disgusting.

    • Sad Hill says:

      And I sense the Solyndra ‘investigation’ will be executed just like the Gunurunner ‘investigation’ – as a smokescreen.

  2. John says:

    I am so disgusted with everything this administration has done. We need to come out in droves to the polls next November. Gets these rats out of our house!

  4. nobarack08 says:

    now you see where the Obama $1 billion re-election fund is coming from. Absconding with false loans and kick-backs, while the public pays for the defaults.
    Where is the 535 Million? offshore of course.

    • Sad Hill says:

      Now, now…you and your racist conspiracy theories. Offshore? Well, I NEVER!

    I always love seeing the pictures of him faking the “Im interested” look.
    As Epstein said about him , here you see him just mimicking the mannerisms of someone who knows stuff or wants to know stuff.
    The punk has no clue nor does he care.

    The very astute Richard Epstein, professor of law at University of Chicago, noted that “I like Obama but I reject the suggestion that he is an intellectual. He is an activist merely mimicking the mannerisms of an intellectual.”

    • Jason - Story Balloon says:

      Obama’s really thinking: “I hope Beyonce’s kid isn’t mine” in that photo.

  6. mac says:

    Actually Sad Hill I contacted one of the gentlemen in the picture and he told me that the President was actually inquiring that since solar panels must withstand heat, cold, rain and hail for many years, wether or not this crystalline silicon module manufacturer offered a warranty that guarantees electrical production for 10 years at 90% of rated power output or 25 years at 80%.
    He also said the President was really on to Solar Trackers that increased the energy produced per panel at a cost of mechanical complexity.

    • Sad Hill says:

      Excellent behind-the-scenes reporting, Mac!

      Who knew?! But let’s keep this one our little secret.
