  • TAKING DOWN OBAMA ISSUE BY ISSUE: the "greens" cash-in

    04/03/2012 8:44:29 AM PDT · by Liz · 6 replies
    There's more Solyndras lurking in Obama's "green-land." The junk bond-rated Beacon, Evergreen Solar, SpectraWatt, AES’ subsidiary Eastern Energy, and the infamous, Solyndra all were beneficiaries of Obama's "green" obsession. According to a hard-hitting CBS News report; Beacon Power, a “green energy storage company,” received $43 million from the Obama admin. The deadheads in the Obama admin gave the biggest S%P 500 loser loan gurantees. The high-sounding "Solar Trust for America" received $2.1 billion in conditional loan guarantees from the DOE — “the largest amount ever offered to a solar project,” according to Obama's Energy Secretary Steven Chu. The project near...

    The highest elected official in the United States dished out an extra helping of irony yesterday when, in speaking at a joint news conference with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon, President Barack Obama slammed the Supreme Court as an “unelected group of people” who will have turned to “judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint” if they strike down Obamacare. The President’s remarks imply that the Court, were it to rule the individual mandate unconstitutional, would be acting recklessly in undertaking judicial review of Congress’ unprecedented use of the Commerce Clause to force Americans...

    Obama said that Republicans have “one message and that is, we’re going to make sure that we cut people’s taxes even more — so that by every objective measure our deficit is worse and we will slash government investments that have made this country great,” he argued, “not because it’s going to balance the budget, but because it’s driven by our ideological vision about how government should be. That’s their agenda, pure and simple.” You learn a lot from Professor Obama, don’t you? You may have thought the Founding Fathers, who strongly believed in low taxes, small government, and...

    President Obama just gave the world a glimpse into his future foreign policy plans this week, should he win a second term. On tap for Obama II: more faith in our adversaries, more betrayal of our traditional allies and more unilateral indulgence in nuclear abolition fantasies. Monday, President Obama told Russian President Medvedev that “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.” Medvedev responded that he would dutifully report that tidbit to Vladimir Putin back in the Kremlin. The men apparently did not realize their discussion was being caught by a live microphone. Given that the...

    President Obama's prodigious flip-flop on the efficacy his signature health care law's individual mandate sits atop the list of his numerous "Etch-a-Sketch"-style political gyrations. During the 2008 campaign, he vehemently opposed Hillary Clinton's reform plan because of its inclusion of mandate. Four years later, his administration is in court defending the precise policy he opposed. This was not a minor or superficial distinction between Obama and his former Democratic rival; it was one of the brightest lines Obama drew to separate the two campaigns' (relatively similar) approaches to government expansionism.

    President Bush lifted an executive order banning offshore oil drilling on Monday and urged Congress to follow suit. Citing the high prices Americans are paying at the pump, Bush said from the White House Rose Garden that allowing offshore oil drilling is "one of the most important steps we can take" to reduce that burden. However, the move is largely symbolic as there is also a federal law banning offshore drilling. "This means that the only thing standing between the American people and these vast oil reserves is action from the U.S. Congress," Bush said

According to the first part of his shtick, high gasoline prices are not his fault; they result from high crude oil prices driven by geopolitical forces — Middle East instability and increased demand by China and India. “Anybody who tells you we can drill our way out of this problem doesn’t know...

How can social justice be anything but apple pie and motherhood, particularly when it’s packaged with fairness and equality? ‘Justice’ is a virtue…much like faith, hope and charity are religious virtues. Justice is goodness and rightness and encompasses moral principles. Social refers to the relation of human beings in a community.

Out of the 20 new or higher taxes in Obamacare, here are the five that most hurt seniors: Individual Mandate excise tax penalty. Many seniors...

    At this point, anyone who does not see that we are living under a communist dictatorship of the current administration in Washington is woefully ignorant or willfully blind. One of the latest outrages against America’s free and sovereign states has—no surprise—come at the hands of the lawless Department of Justice (DOJ). The DOJ, under the racist Eric Holder, has made a mockery of its own name, because there is no justice in that department. It has become nothing more than a strong-arm, thug tool for Barack Obama (or whatever his name is). This week, the DOJ blocked Texas’ voter identification...

    Obama today compared his visionary thinking to that of President Rutherford B. Hayes. Gotta check - ok, he was a republican. Couldn't blame Bush somehow. In his call for the need of alternative energy sources he had to put down President Hayes. Said Obama, "One of my predecessors, President Rutherford B. Hayes, reportedly said about the telephone: 'It’s a great invention but who would ever want to use one?'" Obama said. "That's why he's not on Mt. Rushmore." Oh, the inconvenience of actual facts. According to the curator of Hayes' Presidential Center, it turns out President Hayes was right on...

    This man has to be the sorriest example of a "professor" ever seen. Not only does he not understand the argument against his green energy push he also "mangles U.S., world History" That is the headline at the very liberal, very leftist, blog known as Talking Points MemoYou know its bad when they are calling him out. But lets not even get into his ignorance in history. Lets get into this statement: “Now, here’s the sad thing. Lately, we have heard a lot of professional politicians, a lot of the folks who were running for a certain office, who...

    Countering President Obama’s claim that he’s doing everything he can to increase domestic oil production, a top House Republican Thursday released data from the Energy Department showing that fossil fuel production on federal lands has fallen since Mr. Obama took office. The information compiled by the Energy Information Administration shows that total fossil fuel production on federal lands has dropped 7 percent since 2009 and 13 percent since 2003. From 2010 to 2011, total oil production on federal lands is down 14 percent and gas production dropped 11 percent. House Natural Resources Chairman Doc Hastings, Washington Republican, said the new...

    Imagine this: A group of raging white racists has gathered to assess how the economy’s performance during the 32 months since the recession officially ended is from all appearances in sync with their desire to keep blacks and Hispanics “in their place.” For the record, meetings such as these are extremely rare, and when they do occur, they almost never include anyone with genuine power or influence. Now that membership in the Ku Klux Klan, which had been the unofficial terrorist arm of the Democratic Party for decades, is down to 5,000 or so nationwide, the Southern Poverty Law Center...

    div class="article_body"> Two different stories that came out today highlight the real consequences of the destructive and misguided ObamaCare regulations (known as the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act").  Rather than helping, the ObamaCare rules are wrecking havoc on companies, individuals, and medical institutions, spreading more misery to all of America .Instead of reducing costs and helping people, ObamaCare is dramatically raising costs (estimates have doubled to $1.76 trillion) and hurting Americans (4 million will lose coverage), while gradually destroying our world-class health care system which America has created based on ethical capitalism, competition, and free-market principles.  Conservatives warned that...

    Throughout Barack Obama’s campaign for the presidency and his subsequent time in that office, two things have been said again and again: 1. He has a grudge against America. 2. He takes his marching orders from Saul Alinsky (1909-1972), particularly as encapsulated in the book “Rules for Radicals.” Anyone who listens to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, or Mark Levin regularly is going to hear point one frequently. For all three men, to the chagrin of their critics, have relentlessly warned Americans that Obama believes it’s time for this country to eat a little humble pie: that it’s time to put...

    PRESIDENT Obama officially welcomed the British PM to the US today by vowing to fight for a successful global economy where all countries 'abide by the same rules.' The President, in his welcome speech at the White House declared that the bond between Britain and the US was stronger than ever and that both countries would work together to ensure that no other jeopardises the stability of the global economy. The economic situations for both countries have been precarious in recent months with the eurozone debt crisis threatening to destabilise the entire global economy. President Obama said: "We are fighting...
