Where did green-energy cash go? Straight to campaign donors. Read more about Peter Schwiezers Throw Them All Out in the new Newsweek on sale Monday.
When President-elect Obama came to Washington in late 2008, he was outspoken about the need for an economic stimulus to revive a struggling economy. He wanted billions of dollars spent on shovel-ready projects to build roads; billions more for developing alternative-energy projects; and additional billions for expanding broadband Internet access and creating a smart grid for energy consumption.
After he was sworn in as president, he proclaimed that taxpayer money would assuredly not be doled out to political friends. Decisions about how Recovery Act dollars are spent will be based on the merits, he said, referring to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Let me repeat that: decisions about how recovery money will be spent will be based on the merits. They will not be made as a way of doing favors for lobbyists.
It would take an entire book to analyze every single grant and government-backed loan doled out since Barack Obama became president. But an examination of grants and guaranteed loans offered by just one stimulus program run by the Department of Energy, for alternative-energy projects, is stunning.
The so-called 1705 Loan Guarantee Program and the 1603 Grant Program channeled billions of dollars to all sorts of energy companies. The grants were earmarked for alternative-fuel and green-power projects, so it would not be a surprise to learn that those industries were led by liberals. Furthermore, these were highly competitive grant and loan programsnot usually a hallmark of cronyism. Often fewer than 10 percent of applicants were deemed worthy.
Tell me: Anyone hearing or seeing ANY REPORTING of this today from the so-called press/media cabal?
..In the 1705 government-backed-loan program [alone], for example, $16.4 billion of the $20.5 billion in loans granted as of Sept. 15 went to companies either run by or primarily owned by Obama financial backersindividuals who were bundlers, members of Obamas National Finance Committee, or large donors to the Democratic Party.
Another deeeeep breath .. gird your loins, prepare.

Every member of the House and Senate can trade stocks and make land deals while considering major bills. Our guide to eight who mixed business with governing.
When Visa went public in March 2008, then-Speaker of the House Pelosi and her husband bought some of their shares at the opening IPO priceaccess that would be virtually impossible for the average individual investor.
Baucus played a central role in forging the health-care-reform bill. As he was negotiating with pharmaceutical companies and putting his imprint on the legislation, Baucus was also buying and selling health-care stocks.
U.S. Representative Spencer Bachus (R-AL) had access to highly sensitive financial information during the 2008 bailout debates that may have helped him earn tens of thousands of dollars by trading stock options, even as most Americans portfolios took a beating. On Sunday, Rep. Bachuss trading behavior came under fire in a 60 Minutes report based on Throw Them All Out, the book by investigative journalist and Breitbart editor that has triggered a political earthquake in Washington.

With the known crimes coming to the forefront in drips,
the payoffs are tremendous to the media/press to keep
it all quiet via money spent for campaign commercials.
It is disheartening to know the public will never be told
what has been wrought and the wrath which many of our
representatives have delivered upon our nation.
Thank God there are those who are attempting to inform
the citizenry. May God Bless All who are trying to
