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.

  • Opus#6@AmericanPerspective

    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.

    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.

    Obama’s Solyndra cronyism is the longest entry on this list. It’s at #25. Here are 95 examples of Barack Obama’s lying, lawbreaking, corruption, and cronyism

    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.

  • Opus#6@AmericanPerspective

    #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.
