CBS News: Obama's 11 More Solyndras
Breitbart News ^ | January 16, 2012 | Wynton Hall

Posted on 01/16/2012 9:47:01 AM PST by redstateone

In the wake of Peter Schweizer’s explosive revelation that 80 percent of the Department of Energy’s $20.5 billion in green energy loans went to President Barack Obama’s fundraisers and donors, CBS News is now reporting that the Obama Administration spent billions of taxpayer dollars on 11 more Solyndra-style loans to so-called green energy companies that have since gone bankrupt or are facing serious financial difficulty.

If “they” decide that Obama needs to step down, I expect the MSM to start treating him like GWB.

And I’ll say it yet again: I do not expect Obama to finish his first term as president.

So much of this reminds me of Atlas Shrugged. It is like we are living that book.

The Dummies care about ONE thing MONEY MONEY MONEY. And they think of the American taxpayer as the Mark. Separating fools from their money.

Totally amazing. It really underscores the power of a compliant/sycophantic media.

A Republican president/administration would be getting hammered 24/7.

“Halliburton” anyone?

Add this to the mountain of incompetence and outright criminality perpetrated by this administration and the pressholes that carry their water for them.

There was a business consortium that was wanting to build a Ni-Cad battery factory, mainly for electric cars, just a few miles down the road, but they were counting on federal money to get them started. A lot of folks were up in arms when this failed to happen, but I personally am relieved because the electric car concept has died a quick and gruesome death.

Someone in the media, sooner or later, will be eying a Pulitzer Prize for their ‘Investigative Journalism’ into the corruption that is so blatant in this administration of thugs. I look for all hell to break loose before the summer is over. The scandals of Clinton will look so paltry compared to this guy that he’ll look like a saint by comparison. ....

You can stop wasting your breath on impeachment. Until the GOP owns both the house and senate and until the GOP gets enough real conservatives with nads in both houses, this is a non-starter. Boner won’t consider it and he would not find enough “republicans” to support it as things now stand. The POS should be impeached but that currently is fantasy.

Yeah, the rat Senators’ refusal to convict the perjurer Bill Clinton pretty much excised the impeachment clause from the Constitution.

Our once constitutional republic has transitioned to the form of ancient republics, where the law depends on which faction is in power.

Nothing will come from any of this. THE PARTY OF STUPID (Republicans) don't have a clue to knowing how to take advantage of this. McConnell and Behnoer (whenever they decide to go back to work) will have a press conference and "politely" say they're not going to put up with this stuff, bla, bla, bla....

THEN, McConnell will go to his office and call his broker, and, Behnoer will hit the House Gym for a quick touchup in his personal tanning bed, on the way out to the links.

If this was reversed, the 6 Obama whores: Reid, Schumer, Durbin, Murray, Pelosi and Clyburn would be running continuous 24 / 7 relays to MSNBC, CBS, C-Span, NPR, Washington Post, NY Times, Seattle P.I., LA Times, etc, etc. A$$holes they are .... B-U-T..... they know how to play the media and they're definatly not stupid.

And you really it's just a matter of Boehner and McConnell not knowing how to "play the media" as you put it? Really?

And if Republicans contacted the media and reported this there would be a collective yawn. So why bother? In addition, the MSM would accuse the Republicans of launching unsubstantiated attacks on Obama when it is clear all he is trying to do is bring the country together. Of course this after every Republican in congress is called a racist.

There is only one way to change this. Go after the media. I would use the media in every campaign commercial. I would use Friday night news dumps, how the media ignored Solyndra, how the media ignored the blatant obstruction of our constitution.

That’s how we get the country back on track. We need a media that is completely unbiased. Unfortunately we have lefties running the media.

Aint that the truth... Compounded with scottish law and other limp d*ck politicians. All the Senate had to do was walk over to the Ford building and take a quick see...nope. Politics (and re-election) before country.

The Senate requires a 2/3 majority in order to convict on articles of impeachment. The votes (66) simply will not be there with a Democrat majority in the upper house. So, let’s keep it real. It would be a waste for the House to start the process.

Actually, I disagree. The House needs to be on record about this. It’s fraud. It’s corruption. It’s wrong.

Clinton wasn’t impeacbed for betraying his country. He IS a stain on our existence, as surely as the Kenyan is.

History will show that CBS reported the scandal, even if they never mention it again.

This CBS report may be a fig leaf to to shield their “journalistic integrity.” Or else the truth slipped in by accident before the censors could edit it out.

"How about nearly the whole d---ed Senate refusing to view the evidence?"

Just awful.

IIRC, David Schippers in his book Sellout, a rat Senator told him he didn't care if they caught Bent Willlie standing over a dead body with a smoking gun, he would not vote to convict.

No government prior to ours provided for peaceful removal of the executive prior to an election. We are not supposed to mob the White House and do nasty things to the Prez and his ministers. The peaceful option is gone.

The Obamanations (insiders and politicians) sucked up trillions under the guise of inheriting the "Bush financial crisis."

THIS MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD Obama COS Rahm Emanuel "suddenly" discovered he wanted to be Chicago's mayor---the little turd went before the mics and announced his campaign "raised $10 million in just a few weeks." Rahm also controlled the US Treasury as COS.

================================================

Obama presided over the biggest political heist in US history. What the so-called "collapse" of the banking system wrought:

FOURTEEN TRILLION DOLLARS Behind The Real Size of the Bailout; A guide to the abbreviations, acronyms, and obscure programs that make up the $14 trillion federal bailout of Wall Street
SOURCE motherjones.com
Mon Dec. 21, 2009 12:23 PM PST

The price tag for the Wall Street bailout is often put at $700 billion—the size of the Troubled Assets Relief Program. But TARP is just the best known program in an array of more than 30 overseen by Treasury Department and Federal Reserve that have paid out or put aside money to bail out financial firms and inject money into the markets.

To get a sense of the size of the real $14 trillion bailout, see our chart at web site. Below, a guide to the pieces of the puzzle:

Treasury Department bailout programs
(Remember that Obama's Treasury Dept was controlled by his then-COS Rahm Emanuel---a G/S lobbyist in the WH)

Money Market Mutual Fund: In September 2008, the Treasury announced that it would insure the holdings of publicly offered money market mutual funds. According to the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (SIGTARP), these guarantees could have potentially cost the federal government more than $3 trillion [PDF].

Public-Private Investment Fund: This joint Treasury-Federal Reserve program bought toxic assets from banks and brokerages—as much as $5 billion of assets per firm. According to SIGTARP, the government's potential exposure from the PPIF is between $500 million and $1 trillion [PDF].

TARP: As part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the Treasury has made loans to or investments more than 750 banks and financial institutions. $650 billion has been paid out (not including HAMP; see below). As of December 21, 2009, $117.5 billion of that has been repaid.

Government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) stock purchase: The Treasury has bought $200 million in preferred stock from Fannie Mae and another $200 million from Freddie Mac [PDF] to show that they "will remain viable entities critical to the functioning of the housing and mortgage markets."

GSE mortgage-backed securities purchase: Under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, the Treasury may buy mortgage-backed securities from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. According to SIGTARP, these purchases could cost as much as $314 billion ---SNIP---.

LONG READ---go to web site to read more and checkout the shocking financial charts.

Boehner and McConnell are symptomatic of the GOP establishment. The same crew which is pushing Romney. They do not want real change. They do not want to control spending. They just want a different crew deciding how to cut up the borrowed money pie. Even if the GOP gets enough Senate seats to form a majority in November, fewer than half that number will be actual conservatives.

Yes. I love tracking down great quotes from history.

Hopefully this November I will be able to add Obama's concession speech to this list.

Why waste limited energy and resources for an impeachment fight that cannot be won? Better to focus on Congressional inquiry by subpoena and public hearings to eviscerate the Democrats over Solyndra (et al), Fast and Furious, etc. There is potential to force the resignation of Eric Holder. Futile symbolism is no match for victory.
