     Of course the greatest joke of the Obama presidency is Obama himself , and if we couldn’t laugh these past six years would surely have been the death of us …

Sharyl Attkisson Resigns From CBS, Partly Due To “Liberal Bias”

 

 

 

” First Liz Wahl quits RT over Crimea, now this. It’s been a bad week for state TV.

  Coincidentally, Alisyn Camerota announced today that she’s leaving Fox News after 16 years, leaving a vacancy in the 1 p.m. hour. (Seriously, though, I think that’s a coincidence.)

  Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network’s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her packages on television.”

Pulling The Plug On Fisker

 

 

 

 

” The Energy Department has sold off its $192 million loan guarantee to Fisker Automotive to Chinese billionaire Richard Li for $25 million — the biggest taxpayer loss on a green loan since the failure of Solyndra.

  The Energy Department will announce the “selling of the promissory note” to Hybrid Tech, which is owned by Chinese billionaire Richard Li, according to sources familiar with the sale. The DOE sold the loan to Li for $25 million after lending the financially troubled green automaker a total of $192 million since 2009. …

  Including the $25 million loan sale, the DOE has recovered only $53 million of the original $192 million disbursed — netting taxpayers a $139 million loss.”

 

   Obama’s actions with the “green tech” industries , bribes , subsidies , grants , loans and kickbacks would have been enough all by themselves to have impeached any other president , Republican at least , if we had a truly independent media . The depths of media depravity and dishonesty over the past six years in support of this shameful regime is difficult to grasp . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Video Evidence Obama Is Related To Sgt. Schultz

 

” We now have irrefutable proof that President Obama is a distant relative to Sgt. Schultz from Hogan’s Heroes. They both know NOTHING.”

     He knows nothing . He gets his news from the MSM like everybody else , so how could he know about Fast & Furious , Solyndra , the IRS scandal , Benghazi or any other of the “faux scandals” dreamt up in Al Gore’s playground ? It’s not like he has some vast surveillance apparatus at his disposal or anything .

 

100 Percent FED Up

 

… EXPOSES THE PLAYERS IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

 

 

  ” Judicial Watch has teamed with Victory Film Group and Stephen K. Bannon, the stalwart award-winning writer/director of “Occupy Unmasked” and “The Undefeated,” to produce a compelling documentary exposing the corruption that has snaked through the last three presidential administrations.

“District of Corruption,” which opened Friday in Phoenix at the AMC Desert Ridge 18, and is also playing at the AMC Lennox Town Center 24 in Columbus, Ohio, is produced in association with Constant Motion Entertainment. The film focuses on the enduring and epic battle Judicial Watch, the nation’s most powerful watchdog organization, has waged against government scandal, secrecy and corruption, with special emphasis on the constant scandals of the Obama Administration, including Operation Fast and Furious, illegal alien amnesty, election integrity, crony capitalism, and bailouts and Solyndra. “

” Emails obtained by the Washington Times …

seem to contradict the Obama administration’s claims that its loans.to solar companies are apolitical. Executives at BrightSource, a solar energy company, touted the company’s political influence in obtaining a $1.6 billion loan guarantee from the Department of Energy—the same program exploited by the now-bankrupt Solyndra.

“We have a lot of force gearing up to leaverage [sic] them now, including the WH and VP office [Sen. Harry] Reid and [Sen. Dianne]
Feinstein, and Gov. [Jerry] Brown” of California, reads an early March 2011 email from Arthur Haubenstock, the company’s vice president of regulatory affairs.”

” Staggering Smith Electric may be next Solyndra”

” Smith makes electric powered trucks
favored by the Obama administration, yet
has never turned a profit and is heavily in
debt. Smith originally scheduled its IPO to
seek $125 million in new investment, but
cut that back to only $75 million, then
cancelled the offering outright.
“It is an astonishing disaster and it is likely
the next step might be a Chapter 11
bankruptcy filing,” said Eric Meltzer, a
Philadelphia-based manager of distressed
companies.
The failed IPO is being compared to
Solyndra because it also cancelled an IPO
just before filing for bankruptcy solar
energy company. Solyndra cancelled its
public offering just before filing for
bankruptcy. “

The Green Graveyard of Taxpayer-Funded Failures

 

 ” Solar-cell manufacturer Solyndra became a household name when it collapsed, taking $627 million in American taxpayer dollars with it. It’s the poster company for the government picking winners and losers—or really, just losers—in the energy market. But there are 12 more “green energy” losers that have declared bankruptcy despite attempts to prop them up with taxpayer money—and the list is growing.

There’s a reason why these companies could not rely solely on private financing and needed help from the government. They couldn’t make it on their own; they couldn’t even make it with extra taxpayer help “

 

He’s as adept at investing as he is at job creation .

ABC News

  “SAN FRANCISCO — At an exclusive re-election fundraiser tonight, President Obama hobnobbed with 60 of his wealthiest supporters, including two figures at the center of the Solyndra loan controversy.”

   We have no problem with convicts being made to work … for the public . That is not what this is about though . Read on and see how Obama and his ” Green Energy ” pipe dream has led to wholesale corruption and crony capitalism on a scale never seen before .

 

  “The Obama administration is using prison labor to advance its green energy agenda, enriching foreign companies and some of the president’s largest campaign donors in the process.”

 

   If it was just a matter of saving the taxpayers money we would be behind it 100% but as is always the case with this administration it is all about their own survival and profit .

 

   ” UNICOR typically partners with private companies to install the panels and help the agencies put in place other energy-saving measures. Major beneficiaries of this system include Constellation Energy, which was recently acquired by the Exelon Corporation, a Chicago-based utility provider with deep ties to the Obama administration.”

 

  Guess who has profited handsomely from Exelon Corporation. You guessed it .

 

    ” Exelon employees, including a number of current and former top executives, have donated at least $246,000 to Obama since 2007, including at least $83,000 this cycle.”

 

 

Stimulus … Democrat Style

This and “Fast & Furious ” are Barack’s legacy .

   “On the day it closed, Solyndra said it was laying off 1,100 full-time and temporary employees.

But 1,861 workers lost their jobs as the solar panel manufacturer shut its doors, according to U.S. Labor Department documents provided to The Bay Citizen under the Freedom of Information Act.”

“You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll never forget your experience at Chicago’s Official Obama Commemorative Miniature Golf Course, opening in December of 2012 (owned and operated by Jarrett Industries).

1. City of Detroit: You’ll get chills putting through an exact replicate of a burned out house in the abandoned city center, the by-product of decades of unchecked Democrat rule! “

My Sentiments Exactly

“I thought we were going to see John McCain all over again,” said Brad Thor, a bestselling novelist and popular figure on the right who supported Santorum. “But you know what? That fire I’ve felt for previous candidates, I’m starting to feel it. And that surprise presser at Solyndra was like pouring accelerant on the fire.”

Thor said when he heard about the Solyndra stunt, he cheered aloud: “Way to go Mitt!”

My God, this is right out of Breitbart’s playbook. I love it!” he said. “I swear to God, if he roller skates into the DNC convention, or hijacks an Obama press conference — if he does either one of those I’m going to give my kid’s college money to his Super PAC.”

“Told that conservatives were comparing Romney’s tactics to Breitbart’s, one aide responded: “Oh great, that’s what we were going for.” “

They Bring a Knife ….

   Romney is not McCain . That had been my greatest fear . Mitt seemed to be just another nice guy who would shrink from what needed to be done and cower before a hostile media environment . So far , not so . The man and his campaign know how to take the fight to the opponent and that is what must be done . 

To date all Obama’s opponents have lived in fear of the “race card” and have conceded him the home field advantage . Finally we have someone who is not afraid to point out the nakedness of the Emporer .Good for Mitt , good for us .

“We’ve seen it over and over: the Obama campaign will launch an attack, and in next to no time, the Romney team hits back–twice as hard, as President Obama and Glenn Reynolds both like to say. It happened with the smear of Ann Romney, it happened with the dog on the roof, it happened with the silly “war on women,” it happened with the administration’s clumsy attack on Bain Capital, and it happened again today with the Democrats’ attempt to denigrate Romney’s service as Governor of Massachusetts.”

Note also the youthful faces of the demonstrators …

…but this whole post with updates was just too good for me to resist Bidening from him . Professor please believe me that ,in this instance , imitation is the sincerest form of flattery .

 

” YOU KNOW, I THINK I LIKE THE CUT OF THIS ROMNEY FELLOW’S JIB: Heh: Romney Holds Campaign Event Outside Solyndra HQ. “Solyndra is the failed California-based solar technology company that received more than $500 million in federal stimulus money before it went bankrupt last year. It has since become a mantle of Romney’s argument that Obama doesn’t know how to run the economy.”

Romney’s people kept the event secret for fear of Obama-administration interference.

But wait, it gets better: David Axelrod met by loud pro-Romney crowd. “The event was supposed to have been a secret. The campaign did not announce Mr. Axelrod’s appearance in Mr. Romney’s hometown until early Thursday morning, although word of it leaked out on Twitter late Wednesday.”

Bear in mind , the podium is there for David Axelrod to speak from … Ha Ha Ha . Also note the faces of the crowd . Youthful isn’t it ? 

 

But wait, it gets better still: “Then the Obama goons tried to bully the Romney supporters. Epic fail. The crowd even chanted ‘Cory Booker’ at Axelrod. Hilarious.”

UPDATE: Video: Famous Chicago political organizer … outorganized? Heh. This isn’t the McCain 2008 campaign.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Byron York: Combative Romney Team Hits Obama Coast to Coast.

“The Obama campaign thought they were going to come into our own turf and launch a dishonest sneak attack on Gov. Romney’s record,” says the Romney aide. “We’re not going to allow that to happen. We are going to hold them accountable every single time.”

Punch back twice as hard. ”

 

  It can’t be said often enough . Via Doug Ross , a reminder of the crony capitalism that this administration has elevated to high art . Check out Jay Carney trying to explain why Solyndra doesn’t matter . That’s $500 million and 1100 jobs that don’t matter . 

“Up is down, left is right, good is bad, and day is night. If you wander inside the Washington, D.C., beltway, you’ll enter a bizarro world where, at times, commonsense is replaced by a localized logic that is completely divorced from the reality.

The latest example of political gobbledygook comes courtesy of White House press secretary Jay Carney, who yesterday lapsed into rambling rhetoric when asked to explain how President Obama can defend the failed Solyndra solar boondoggle, yet attack private sector investments that sometimes fail but oftentimes succeed. Here’s his response:”

Joe Scarborough on Solyndra :  “Americans don’t care.”

 

The truth is , American’s DO care . The Left just chooses to believe that we don’t .

What do you Think ? 

  This needs to be remembered in November .

” Two years ago today, May 26, 2010,President Obama traveled to Fremont,California to showcase a “brighter and more prosperous future” promised by the green-energy company Solyndra.

   The solar panel maker went bankrupt last year, taking with it $535 million in taxpayer-funded loan guarantees. More than 1,000 people lost their jobs.

   The Obama administration had cut corners to rush money to Solyndra, with some of the beneficiaries being top Obama fundraisers. Even as Solyndra failed, the administration considered giving it another $469 million. ”

   Yet another scandal concealed by the partisan blinders of the water carrying LSM .
