Obama's OMB ignores document subpoena; Upton/Stearns House panel says Monday morning or else
Washington Examiner ^ | 7/23/11 | Mark Tapscott

Posted on 07/23/2011 10:35:59 PM PDT by Nachum

President Obama's senior appointees at the U.S. Office of Management and Budget took another step this week toward a potentially epic confrontation with Congress by ignoring a document subpoena issued by a subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The subpoena is for thousands of documents requested months ago by the committee's Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations concerning OMB's evaluation of a Department of Energy economic stimulus program loan guarantee worth $535 million for Solyndra, Inc., which makes solar energy panels.

They are dealing with a lawless fraud who has zero respect for America, its people, its laws, and its government.

What did they expect? When will the Congress do its job and impeach him?

Investigations concerning OMB's evaluation of a Department of Energy economic stimulus program loan guarantee worth $535 million for Solyndra, Inc.,

“We have seen a total net direct employment increase at Solyndra of 310 regular, full-time jobs since the DOE made its conditional loan guarantee commitment.

That's about the going rate for green jobs, $1.7 million each; jobs that will disappear as soon as public subsidies to buy the junk they make are gone.

You really have to wonder what goes through the head of a "green jobs" proponent while attempting to deny and suppress the staggering wastefulness and stupidity of the whole venture.

The denial of basic the basic physics of energy and the denial simple financial arithmetic that is needed to support the scam is truly hard to fathom.

If we listen real close we should be able to hear the shredders buzzing. This administration has got to go, starting with their messiah.

He’s a wannabe dictator and he can’t stand not getting his way. He has no respect for this country, it’s laws or anything “American”. He’s wicked and will get away with as much as he’s allowed.

The history books if written by honest at least partially non-biased historians, aheeeemmmmm, go ahead and laugh bitt, will most probably write about this particular administration and their leader being the BIGGEST ASSHOLES ON THE PLANET EARTH DURING THEIR REIN. Sorry if I offend anyone.

As I have addressed a few others that often ping me, I have been off this site as well as news oriented Internet for the past few weeks. I am quite busy elsewhere so if I do not answer pings it is not like I am deliberately ignoring people.

Obama sees things in terms of a Third World socialist. His father was an African Marxist and his mother a leftist slut. Nothing in his background or experience - far left community organizer, 20 years with the hate-monger Pastor Wright, close friendship with terrorist Bill Ayers, shady real estate deal with Syrian (now jailed) swindler Tony Rezko, associations with Louis Farrakhan and black militants - makes him a real American in terms of values or world view.

Obama spent 150 days in the U.S. Senate, about 120 of them campaigning. He spent a few years in the Illinois state legislature voting “present.” Never has America been so poorly led. It’s like the nation committed “suicide by stupidity”.

Lawlessness is just another, natural, part of the package.

But just hours before the Stearns subcommittee issed its subpoena Brian Harrison, Solyndra’s CEO, issued a statement defending the company’s efforts since receiving the DOE loan guarantee:

“The fact is that Solyndra is growing rapidly. We are installing our products around the globe, we have created and supported thousands of American jobs ...

Hey, you don’t suppose this bozo is just flat out lying about “thousands of American jobs” do you?

“Yesterday, the Stearns subcommittee issued an ultimatum, telling OMB it has until Monday morning at 9 am to comply with the subpoena or face the consequences....”

What are the consequences?

As far as I can tell, there are no consequences in DC. The most we ever see is the occasional “my bad” as offenders saunter off to their next gig.
