Until last year, Arati Prabhakar worked for the venture capitalists who backed Solyndra, the green-tech firm that imploded in a scandal described by Mitt Romney as an example of the White House’s ”crony capitalism.” Now Prabhakar has a new job, this one in the Obama administration: running the Pentagon’s most important research agency.

“More Crony-Capitalism from the Obama regime.”

It's not just Obama....we have sixteen Republican Congressional Freshman that have cosigned a letter to House Leaders to:

“take up an extension of the Production Tax Credit (PTC) for wind energy as soon as possible.”

Is there a woodshed we can take these sixteen out to?

Take these pagan driven green politics, the Great Whore, and crush it.

Let the US of America be a thorn is Lucifer's side.

Not to mention, Islam will be the most affected from a downfall of their Muslim patrons dominance over hydrocarbons.

ROFL, just freeking ROFL! Unmitigated SCUM vaulting upwards to enable MORE unmitigated SCUM.

Unrepentent, gloating, vicious, sold-out, scheming, thieving CRAP, thy name is Venture Capital.

“I thought the Indians were our allies”

Doesn't mean they won't conduct espionage efforts to steal technology. For all we know she could be a Muslim Indian working on behalf of Pakistan.
