Corrupt Media Continues to Cover Up Obama’s Solyndra Disaster

On May 26, 2011, the White House posted this video praising Solyndra as a Recovery Act success story.

In August 2011, Barack Obama’s gleaming example of green technology – Solyndra – filed for bankruptcy. The solar panel manufacturer squandered $535 million of stimulus money in a little over a year.

Why Solyndra?
Top Obama bundler George Kaiser made multiple visits to the White House in the months before the company was granted a $535 million loan from the government. And top Solyndra officials also made numerous visits — 20 — to the White House, according to logs and reporting by The Daily Caller. Solyndra officials in the logs included chairman and founder Christian Gronet and board members Thomas Baruch and David Prend. The company secured the $535 million loan despite the fact that it was widely known Solyndra was in deep economic trouble and had negative cash flows since its inception.

Kaiser said he did not use political influence or talk to administration officials about a massive government loan to Solyndra. However, the Solyndra investor made multiple visits to the White House in the week before the Department of Energy approved a $535 million guaranteed loan to Solyndra on March 20, 2009


But, Barack Obama had no regrets.

In fact, Barack Obama was so impressed with the failed solar company that the administration wanted to give it another $469 million on top of the $535 million to make it an even billion dollars in taxpayer cash.

It was also discovered that Solyndra decisions were infused with politics at every level.

But if you thought this major disaster would interest the liberal media you would be wrong.
Only FOX News has given this story the coverage it deserves. The other media outlets mostly ignored the story.

Thanks to Media Matters for the chart.

Last Thursday marked the one year anniversary of Solyndra’s collapse. It happened to land on the same day as Obama’s DNC speech.
Not one media outlet carried the story.

    IF the media wasn’t complicit in covering up the facts 24/7 regarding Odumbo, the guy wouldn’t stand a chance.

    They’ve totally let us down, and it’s really clear who butters their bread.

    Just sayin’.

    Then, you just answered this question and why this is happening with all we know about Obama.


    Obama Widens Lead over Romney; 48% of US Give Obama Good or Excellent Marks

    The president’s lead comes despite a mixed reaction to his convention speech on Thursday night in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Friday’s government data showing that jobs growth slowed sharply last month. [Read more from this story HERE].

    48% Give Obama Good or Excellent Marks

    By Rasmussen Reports. President Obama continues to earn positive marks for leadership from nearly half the nation’s voters, but there’s a wide partisan difference of opinion on this question.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters rate the president’s leadership as good or excellent.


    W.H. plans for a second term

    If this criminal gets another term then well, it would be criminal.

  • It is all part of Obama’s looting of the American treasury.

  • Patty

    So, an Obama victory is because of the Bias Media, this was news in 08, and Obama won.

    Four years later and the same old tired and disgusting thing is happening. Our we all suppose to sit home because Obama and the Media have called this election.


  • Patty

    We are rats or they are, running around like chickens with their heads cut off. We see the mice and greed in Washington, we live it every day since 2008. Holder DOJ and Obama, Jarrett, Axelrod, Plouffe and Google bee head.

    Repeating over and over that the GOP bits. That they will kill you, granny off the cliff, no college for the poor, felons.

    These people a slick operators and with them and the bias media, do we have a shot. Some thing has to give. Books and movies are written about Obama that would make your hair curl.

    Yet, Obama has great approval ratings. Empty chair and Empty suit, but what he has done is what he promised, fundamentally change America, indeed he did.

    So why hasn’t the RNC/Romney made a video to counter this?

  • ChicagoJenn

    Once again we are seeing the liberal media shilling for Obama. Just tonight I was waiting to watch Paul Ryan in NV on CSPAN, he was supposed to come on right after a repeat of Biden in OH, guess what? CSPAN did not air Paul Ryan’s rally, they just went straight to a repeat of their morning telephone call in show.

  • ChicagoJenn

    And, CNN is (seemingly nightly) airing the Obama 1 hour special, I suppose to counter the Obama2016 movie. And, Frontline will do a “unbiased” (COUGH, COUGH, COUGH) special on Obama and Romney. We just can’t win with this awful media. May they burn and rot in h**l

    How much of the hundreds of billions of stimulus money has ended up in democrat, likely even obama’s offshore accounts?

    Without an honest DOJ and an unbiased media, it will take spilled blood to find out.

  • Redwine

    I don’t believe that Comrade Barry was “so impressed” by Solyndra. The company, like those other fabricated, “green” companies, was specifically devised as a money laundering scheme to “wash” taxpayer stimulus (read: slush) funds. These front operations didn’t “fail”. They accomplished precisely what the regime set out to do – funnel in taxpayer money in the form of government loans and belch out washed, dried and well-pressed money to cronies who, in turn, fund the regime. This is utterly fraudulent and criminal activity by the regime. Comrade Barry needs to be tried for high crimes and misdemeanors. He must not be let off the hook.

  • our only weapon with a willfully complicit media is to boycott their sponsors. the goal of the democratic party-media complex is to destroy private enterprise just like their myth. who pays for all of the media ‘s propaganda to destroy private enterprise? figure it out for yourselves.

  • #17, absolutely. I am willing to try anything to get Obama out this NOvember.

    Let’s start identifying the sponsors and targeting them with boycotts.

    Yeah, and Gateway Pundit made a BFD about coming to Cleveland a few weeks ago, but hasn’t followed up on the story. Of course, it didn’t deserve the Breitbart treatment in the first place.

    Absolutely. Use Alinsky tactics against the media. They need to be named, shamed and made to feel it here it hurts – in lost revenues.

    Count me in.

    The Solyndra story is, in fact, well known (except perhaps among the Section VIII parasites who’ve still never heard of Solyndra but know all about Obama Money). What is less well known is the fact that Solyndra is only one of many green companies receiving Energy Dept. handouts that have gone belly up.

  • Kathteach

    Redwine – I am in your camp (always am) here. This is a Stimulus scam of the highest cronyism and corruption – and it always has been.

    Paul Ryan actual alluded to this kind of Obama corruption quite pointedly in his accpetance speech as VP….

    And we all know it’s true (at least the regular GWP folks)….

    But how do we get America to know about it? Hmmmm – campaign ads by the Romney and Ryan team? Or continued participation in all your favorite alternative media blogs and Twitter and hard work in your own neighborhood.

    We have to do some hard work this fall, folks, in our own hood.

    Be creative. Find a way. If you live in Minnesota – we’ll have a prayer chain for you all because you are all so in the tank for Ron Paul as far as the GOP is concerned – we have no idea who you are.

    It is true that Media lies and are in the tank for Obama

    2012, Media lies
    Journalism dies

    Besides Conservative Blogs like Gateway Pundit, You should check out NEWS BUSTERS (link on right column)

    and go to Tell The Truth

    And While we know how disgusting propaganda, lies and omissions can be, what is even worse is gaming the system when we vote. . .

    The left tried it in Milwaukee during their Judge Race when they announced the Dem Loon won only to find out that Waukesha County did not enter their votes in the correct column so when the did so the Republican Judge won.

    The game Dems play is to let all republican counties give their results so that Dem controlled cities can magically find the number of votes to “WIN” the election. . . as Clinton said during DNC. . it’s arithmetic.

    Look they did it this time with announcing August Fund Raising. . . Romney actually raised more than Obama. Romney told everyone last week how much he raised. . How could Obama loose momentum from DNC and MSM spin so magically Obama’s donations come in and beat Romney by $2MM (yeah right)–election.html

    This is how they plan to “Win” the election. . .Be on guard Republicans!!!

    Be on Guard!

    N.Y. SLIMES not just bias in the media anymore.


    Omens of Doom?

    A statistical wizard gives 4-to-1 odds against a Romney win.


    These basic facts are important to establish at the outset of any discussion of the current state of the race, because there are many influential people who would like you to believe that the outcome of the election has somehow already been determined, and that they have clairvoyant insight on what that outcome will be. But why bring Nate Silver into this?

    Silver is the poll-analyzing guru of the New York Times, whose reputation as a wizard was developed in crunching baseball statistics before being applied to political campaigns. On Saturday afternoon, Silver published an analysis which asserted that Obama now has a nearly 80 percent chance of winning the election, with 317 Electoral College votes and 52 percent of the popular vote. All of which is very interesting — and very important, if true.

    This is politics 101, it really depends on who you like. Or, your bias. I vote Bias

  • Limousine Barry

    Let me be clear, it takes a lot of payola to keep my overpaid Hollow Hollywood Talking Heads to hide my frauds!

    For example, “You’ll love 0bama the second time! He didn’t spend America into the ditch. He just made a bad investments which made his cronies rich. Vote for 0bama!”

    They repeat that same old line over and over… it is such a pain in arse. That’s why it costs a lot of money!

    Where do you think all of my campaign money went! It went to pay-off polling companies and my millionaire Hollywood Talking Heads.

    I have a huge staff manage by Davy Axelrod that filters and adjusts all of the stories that the MSM produces – and this is very costly.

    When Chrissy Tingles goes off the rails I have to stick an ice pick up his nose and scramble his brains. Then I stuff his nose full of coke, plug it with cotton to keep his brain from leaking. This emergency surgery is expensive!

    The same goes double for Nancy Pelosi. I have lost count of the number of times I have had to rush her to the Botox clinic to be infused with Botox and Ritalin! All of this has to be done on the hush – and it is very costly!

    If you like the way I manipulate everybody from my donors to my Pollsters; to my Hollow Wood Talking Heads then vote for me.

    And, this is important. Send me $30,599.00 before midnight. My campaign is going broke! More money and more lipstick is the solution!

    Sure, my campaign may stink but after I fleece my crappy donors out of every dime they have it will stink like a plugged-up toilet. Good day.

    Smoking Gun on Obama’s Association With Karl Marx Himself

    We all know that Barack Hussein Obama was a red diaper baby, the offspring of communists who was raised by commies and fellow travelers and mentored by the willing Soviet tool Frank Marshall Davis before having his career launched from the home of unrepentant Maoist terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine “Fork Salute” Dohrn. Now it has been revealed that the Manchurian Moonbat’s communist affiliations go back further than anyone knew — back to Karl Marx himself. Here they pose together for a photo:
    Karl-Marx_Empty-Chair Picture here.

    Then again, maybe Marx submitted this photo from hell for National Empty Chair Day.

    I believe that America knows what is happening. The American people including the patriotic democrats, know that obama is a communistic muslim and will not let America be destroyed by him and his croonies. I also believe that even if everyone in America voted for obama ,the electorial college is all set to throw him out. All the money in the world and all the lies that the media is paid to tell,won’t help him in any way. He will lose this election and it will be AMERICA that wins.

    There is so much injustice in the justice system. This is small potatoes compared to what is happening to an internet pioneer. His only crime was engaging with the wrong partner who with the ho;e of the most unscrupulous team of lawyers is raping this man of his freedom, his life and is taking away many of his Constitutional Rights. By order of the Federal Judge he is prohibited from hiring an attorney to help defend himself in the legal/illegal action. the attorneys judges and their cronies have stolen millions of dollars and completely ruined a flourishing above board business. Excerpts from the Court: THE COURT: “I’m telling you don’t screw with me. You are a fool, a fool, a fool, a fool to screw with a federal judge, and if you don’t understand that, I can make you understand it. I have the force of the Navy, Army, Marines and Navy behind me.”

    THE COURT: “You realize that order is an order of the Court. So any failure to comply with that order is contempt, punishable by lots of dollars, punishable by possible jail, death”
    Jeff Baron is prohibited from not only hiring an attorney but from gainful employment. He is prohibited from purchasing anything other then absolute necessities. If this case continues, we as Americans will have our rights violated like Jeff Baron, due to a precedent being set by the court. Watch the video : and contact your Congressman, the white House and make them stop before we all become victims of the Justice System
