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.

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.

Assholes is an accurate description of the Obama crew. Bammy Boy is giggling away in the White House when his wannabe gangstas pull these stunts for him. Bill Clinton had lots of child-crusaders and punks laboring away but Obama (obviously) outclasses him.

How much does the CEO of Solyndra make? I bet it is a bundle, along with a tidy benefits package. But, the left wouldn’t notice this version of evil capitalism at work because it slithers along under the guise of “enviromentalism”! Those green-job proponents need scrutinize the salaries of management at these companies just like they do the evil banks.

What I find disheartening and very strange is that there is not one single democrat in the house or senate who will dare question ANYTHING he does. Not ONE. Not even one somewhat moderate democrat. They all continue to march in lock step with him despite his dismal poll numbers and fading popularity. Why?

nobama hates you, hates your family, hates Free America, hates Americans, hates the Constitution and hates the Bill of Rights. nobama is a hate crime foisted upon America, nobama is the Destroyer.

Everything nobama does is intentional.

People, I don’t know what his game is but he is thumbing his nose at congress left and right.

He WANTS them to take action against him.
Either he wants to play the race card for sympathy to help his poll numbers. Expects the media to back him up.
Will somehow force their hand and attempt to nullify their power to keep him in check.
Declare martial law.

Something. But I am sure he WANTS them to take action.

No one who has done so much to bring us so close to ruin so fast. being smart enough to bury legislation so deep into thousands of pages of documents as to go un noticed until it kicks in years down the road. Who funds hundreds of millions of dollars in programs and no one even finds it for months after the legislation is signed.

Can be so stupid as to think that his status is so historically significant as to be unopposed at every over reach.

It is just inconceivable to me.

he has some plan and is thumbing his nose at congress on many levels now just WAITING for them to take action.

What I don’t know is WHY. What could he have planned?

Agree and the only way they will get him to back off on the spending is to impeach him and I don’t believe that the nads required to do that exist in congress. He knows that his skin color makes him teflon.

If the House tried to take action against Obama for violating the constitution, McBackstabber and Co. would lead the pack in protection of Dear Reader.

Like when the House investigated so many Clinton crimes and Newt and his friends made sure they only hung perjury in a sexual harassment case around his neck. Obammy knows this.

Because they know enough people have caught on to what they’re doing and they figure they might as well go for as much as they can while they can.

And because evil has a hold on them.

"What I don’t know is WHY. What could he have planned?"

Oh, I bet you could think of what he has planned if you just let yourself. Alinsky's guiding principle, if he can be said to have had principles, was to "think the unthinkable." Armed with that bit of knowledge, the actions of this usurper, this Congress, this Supreme Court, and this federal government, as a whole, and the consequences of said actions, just fall into place.

Reap the whirlwind, America.
