Stunner… Leaked Emails Prove Obama Administration Drove Cash to Failed Green Company (Video)

Just a day after President Barack Obama insisted that green grants were given out by Department of Energy and weren’t political, leaked emails prove White House cronyism.
Kelly Maher at Revealing Politics reported:

Complete Colorado reported:

Recent remarks by President Obama to a Denver-based TV anchor stand in stark contrast to new emails obtained by

This past Friday, President Obama told KUSA’s Kyle Clark, in response to a question on the federally-backed but failed Colorado company Abound Solar, “And these are decisions, by the way, that are made by the Department of Energy (DOE), they have nothing to do with politics.”

And just one year ago, White House advisor David Plouffe had this exchangewith NBC’s David Gregory regarding the politcal questions surrounding many of the DOE-backed projects:

Were campaign contributors involved here in terms of their projects that ultimately forced the government’s hand?

Absolutely not. These decisions about the loan program were made by career officials in the Department of Energy on the merits. has obtained emails that seem to directly contradict Plouffe’s answer, and also challenge the President’s notion that the DOE’s loan decisions were universally autonomous within the agency. The emails also lend even more credence to the theory that the loan to Abound Solar was political payback to Colorado’s wealthy Democratic benefactor and Gang-of-Four member, Pat Stryker.

    OBAMA IS A LYING _ _ _!!!

    And I wish Romney had brought of this solar energy mess. Obama’s companies have brought green alright in the form of PAYOLA. YES, TO HIS AGENDA FOR A MORE PRODUCTIVE GREEN NATION. I tell you just how livid I am but you all here know it already. Now, is the time for this liar and chief to get the H out of our life.


    Below is more Money, where it is coming from is the GOOD OLD PRINTING MACHINE, spitting out more of the taxpayers money. AGAIN! and AGAIN! and AGAIN!

    I wonder how Obama and his cronies sleep at night. Probably like babies because like Mr. Woods said, father of Tyrone, this administration and generation are liars with no moral character, God Bless him. He is telling us the truth and his son’s death shook me and others into reality. But we really knew this but still it was enlightening to hear from a Courageous Father of a great HERO.


    Forget Uncle Sam _ We Have Uncle Ben


    Uncle Ben Finances Nearly All Home Sales In America

    From this American Thinker article

    s of September 2008, Fannie and Freddie guaranteed roughly $3.5 trillion worth of mortgage-backed securities. The present figure must be significantly higher, because the GSEs, along with Ginnie Mae and the Federal Housing Administration, have purchased or guaranteed nearly every mortgage issued in the United States since late 2008 when the GSEs went into conservatorship. These agencies backed “nearly 97% of U.S. mortgages in 2009,” “96.5% of all newly originated mortgages” in the first quarter of 2010, and “nine out of every ten home loans” in 2012.

    This is an eye-opening article. The author warns that potentially the US taxpayers could be on the hook for as much as five trillion dollars.

    So, our Uncle Ben may well be the most powerful man in the world. In my opinion, he may also be the most evil and dangerous man in the world. I wonder what the writers of history will have to say about Ben Bernanke? Will his legacy be that he single-handedly destroyed the greatest economy the world has ever known?

    Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

    And I wish Romney had brought of this solar energy mess.

    correction: I wish Romney had brought this solar fiasco up more in the debates.

    OT: a story is starting to leak out that General Ham at Africom had a reaction force ready to go. He was reportedly told to stand down but ignored that order. He was reportedly “apprehended” by his second in command and relieved of duty. Apparently the commander of the Carrier Strike Group in the region has also been relieved of duty.

    President Obama’s Taxpayer-Backed Green Energy Failures

    It is no secret that President Obama’s and green-energy supporters’ (from both parties) foray into venture capitalism has not gone well. But the extent of its failure has been largely ignored by the press. Sure, single instances garner attention as they happen, but they ignore past failures in order to make it seem like a rare case.

    The complete list of faltering or bankrupt green-energy companies:

    Evergreen Solar ($25 million)*
    SpectraWatt ($500,000)*
    Solyndra ($535 million)*
    Beacon Power ($43 million)*
    Nevada Geothermal ($98.5 million)
    SunPower ($1.2 billion)
    First Solar ($1.46 billion)
    Babcock and Brown ($178 million)
    EnerDel’s subsidiary Ener1 ($118.5 million)*
    Amonix ($5.9 million)
    Fisker Automotive ($529 million)
    Abound Solar ($400 million)*
    A123 Systems ($279 million)*
    Willard and Kelsey Solar Group ($700,981)*
    Johnson Controls ($299 million)
    Schneider Electric ($86 million)

    The administration’s pie-in-the-sky energy planning is working exactly as one might have predicted.

    “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels of Europe,” said Dr. Steven Chu, Director of the Lawrence National Laboratory, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal in September 2008.

    We ended that year with an average U.S. retail price of $1.67 for all grades of gasoline on December 31, 2008.

    In contrast, the price of a gallon of regular gasoline that summer was $6.78 in Greece, $8.24 in Italy, and $9.39 in the Netherlands, according to Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.

    Dr. Chu’s proposal to hike gas prices in the United States to European levels was published in the Wall Street Journal on December 12, 2008. Six weeks later, on January 21, 2009, he was sworn into office as President Obama’s Secretary of Energy.

    The difference between the Dutch gasoline price of $9.39 and the U.S. price of $1.67 is $7.72 per gallon. The U.S. Energy Information Administration reports that the average U.S. household purchases 1,100 gallons of gasoline per year. That means a $7.72 price increase per gallon would cost the average American family an extra $8,492 per year.

    For the middle fifth of the U.S. population in terms of income, the $8,492 price hike per year would cut their after-tax income by an average of 15 percent.

    For the bottom fifth of U.S. households, the $8,492 price hike per year would cut their annual income by 47 percent.

    Raising U.S. gasoline prices to European levels, said Chu, would encourage — or, more accurately, force — Americans to move to neighborhoods closer to work and dump their trucks and SUVs for Chinese bikes and scooter-like Smart Cars.[………….]

    #1… i agree. unless your are a communist i can’t see any reason for voting for obama. he made everything he’s put his hand to worse.

    Some of them are so blindingly, witheringly, incomprehensibly and irretrievably STUPID that it is dumbfounding.

    Yesterday I reposted a graphic about Obama’s GM bailout on Facebook. The thing says “Obama didn’t save the Auto Industry . . . He took away 2,200 dealerships and 120,000 jobs – and sent them to China.”

    One of my Facebook “friends” who is an Obama supporter, proceeds to comment that Obama had NOTHING to do with the auto bailout of GM – that was all Bush, from 2006!

    I posted one linke giving the facts (Forbes) and she responded “Give me an UNBIASED source, plzkthx” -so, I gave her 15 or so more and threw in one about GM’s recent China building boom for their Cadillac line . . .

    I did obviously shut her up, but STILL . . . it is like they are on some kind of mind control drug!

    Washington Post Endorses, Criticizes Obama

    [The Post cited some of these failures:

    He did not end, as he promised he would, “our chronic
    avoidance of tough decisions” on fiscal matters.

    “We were disappointed that Mr. Obama allowed the bipartisan
    recommendations of his fiscal commission to wither and die and
    that he and Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) failed to seal a
    fiscal deal in the summer of 2011.”

    “Mr. Obama alienated Congress and business leaders by isolating
    himself inside a tight White House circle that manages to be both
    arrogant and thin-skinned. Too often his administration treats
    business as an obstacle rather than a partner.”

    He hardly tried to achieve the immigration
    reform and climate-change policy he promised.

    In reviewing his foreign policy record, the Post said Obama “was
    hesitant and inconstent in responding to the two greatest and
    most unexpected foreign-policy opportunities of his presidency:
    the pro-democracy uprising in Iran in 2009 and the Arab Spring
    two years later.”

    “Mr. Obama kept the United States on the sidelines as Syria plunged
    into civil war, costing more than 30,000 lives — most of them civilians
    – and breeding extremism that may destabilize a half-dozen countries.”

    “By not securing a presence in Iraq after ending the U.S. military
    mission, he failed to capitalize on America’s decade-long commitment
    to that nation, and his ambivalence regarding Afghanistan – sending
    more troops, but with artificial deadlines and no clear commitment to
    their success — promises trouble in coming years.”]

    Romney is the Good Cop with a positive vision for the future. Others (the bad cops) are digging up all the corruption and that’s as it should be. If we would had had a geniune media in the last 4 years instead of glorified Lib typists we might have known the specifics about what Obama was up to. You could almost forgive the media for being so one sided except for the fact that they were aware of the filthy underbelly of this administration and did nothing. Doesn’t that make them accomplices?

    Now we are poorer but hopefully wiser as we make Obama a one term President — and try to bring this divided nation together again.

    I am hearing from everyone I know that Obama will cheat his way back in. Now wouldn’t we be totally stupid if we allowed this to happen to us again? Screw the UN inspectors we can handle our own elections.

    This can only “STUN”
    those who were not watching Glenn Beck several years ago with stuff related to his “Crimes, Inc” sotries about Obama’s financial connections to Joyce Foundation, Chicago Climate Exchange, Chicago Annenberg Foundation, Shore National Bank, Energy Efficiency Fund, Energy Efficiency Bank, Joel Rogers, Maurice Strong, Van Jones, Bill and John Ayers, Algore, Bill Clinton, Hillary’s college roommate, Franklin Raines, BANK OF AMERICA, G.E. Goldman Sachs, Apollo Foundation, SEIU, ACORN, TIDES Foundation, International Micro Finance – that his mother worked for the International Monetary Fund that Timothy Geithner’s father was a top-ranked Leader of, and she was working directly under him, and gee – have not even mentioned George Soros, yet.

    IN OTHER WORDS – ALL his pushing of Stimulus money to ANY Green Energy enteprise is INSIDER TRADING and nothing LESS – it’s EMBEZZLEMENT that has NOTHING to do with Capitalism. It is FEUDALISM – paying the TROOPS!.

    For Obama, his crew and the Democrats it’s basically a organized crime operation, only better, they have media backing and millions of dopes to support them. Forget it if this mob is returned to office, it will make the previous four years look like a bake sale.

  • mg4us

    Agree with all of you. . .
    But what strikes me the most is that our so-called Journalists, especially David Gregory,
    are so in the tank for Obama and leftist elitist ideology
    that they are willing to turn their back on their professional journalistic integrity
    as well as their fellow American Citizens to allow this theft and scam to go on. . .

    Thank GOD for conservative bloggers. . keep up the good work and do the job the MSM refuses to do.

  • MicahStone

    An “etiquette” question: When an OBOZO crony ecofascist crook gets a taxpayer-funded “green” loan/guarantee, what’s the appropriate amount of the loan/guarantee they should “tip” to the OBOZO re-election campaign before declaring bankruptcy – 15%, 20%, 25%…?

  • Oliver

    OT repeat with correct link (sorry!):


  • Arkie

    #27 MicahStone — my guess would be 50% is the “tip” going back to Obama. The other 50% goes into an account in the Caymans belonging to the Obama crony at the company. The amount actually going into the green company — zero.

    Obama Years Ago Helped Fund Carbon Program
    He Is Now Pushing Through Congress

    [In 2000 and 2001, while Barack Obama served as a board member for a Chicago-based charitable foundation, he helped to fund a pioneering carbon trading exchange that is likely to fill a critical role in the controversial cap-and-trade carbon reduction scheme that President Obama is now trying to push rapidly through Congress.

    During those two years, the Joyce Foundation gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself “North America’s only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide.”]

    Obama, Maurice Strong, Al Gore

    [In 1997, Strong went on to accept from Tongsun Park, who was found guilty of illegally acting as an Iraqi agent, $1 million from Saddam Hussein, which was invested in Cordex Petroleum Inc., a company he owned with his son, Fred.


    It may be interesting to note that the Chicago Climate Exchange in spite of its hype, is a veritable rat’s nest of cronyism. The largest shareholder in the Exchange is Goldman Sachs. Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley is its honorary chairman, The Joyce Foundation, which funded the Exchange also funded money for John Ayers’ Chicago School Initiatives. John is the brother of William Ayers.]

    Green Energy Is Really All About Social Justice

    “I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical,
    communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to
    be a part of.’ I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot
    of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary. I was a
    rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on
    April 29th. By August, I was a communist.”
