This is a must listen. While we were focused on the debate last Wednesday night, Mark Levin got a call from someone who worked at the Solyndra plant, who gave some revealing details about this Solyndra scandal.

This is one of the more interesting things the caller said:

While we were out there, while we were building it – cause it is a half a billion dollar plant – everyone already knew that China had developed a more inexpensive way to manufacture these solar panels. Everyone knew that the plant wouldn’t work. But they still did it. They still built it.

She then emphasized that she isn’t even that high on the totem pole and she knew this stuff. So there’s no doubt in her mind that Obama and the White House knew that it wasn’t feasible.

Levin replayed the call tonight. Here is the full call:

Also worth note is that NBC did a pretty damning report this morning on the Solyndra scandal:

    —————–
    Lemme guess why .
    1. Damning Solyndra makes Immelt+GE look good since Immelt is into green tech too
    2. Damning Solyndra dams that jooooo Kaiser
    3. Once FBI has removed all evidence, Obama can act like a victim who was misled
    4. If the kneepads media keep the sheeple focussed on solyndra, they won’t focus on Obama+Holder running guns and grenades for cartels
    The only questions I have are about that huge chunk of money ? Where did it go ? How much did Obama, his vayjayjay ( =Van Jones) and his g-string dweller
    (=Pete Stark) get out of the $535 Mil ?
    Now that the bankruptcy has been declared, who will profit from it ? I will be watching for CBRE’s involvement . CBRE is a group, and the R = Mr Richard Blum,
    a k a Mr Diane Feinstein. He made a killing when DiFi got FDIC all that money as soon as CBRE won the exclusive rights to sell foreclosed properties FOR FDIC .

    This Solyndra scam is not over by a long shot. Infact , the scam has just getting started.
    No wonder NBC is working hard

    • 3. Once FBI has removed all evidence, Obama can act like a victim who was misled
      We will find out the was no malfeasance. It was all well intentioned and we can sell the stock for a profit.
      If the FBI can hide a murder weapon to help this administration, what’s to shredding a little paperwork?

        You are right, but not just NBC, they all need to jump on it. Someone, is going down with this one. If not, this will be the final nail in the coffin for Obama.

  • I think the truth here is a little less nefarious, but no less damning. When you are a blind idealog, you act with emotion and damn the facts. Obama’s school books say we are going to be cooked by global warming and this company glad handed him and said we’ll fix it. His text books also say Kaines = God even though he has been proven wrong time and time again. He also has a grudge against this country instilled by his parents. There is no logic, no reasoning, no leadership, just blind ideology.

  • Eve

    This is just amazing, not that I thought any different. Obama, his administration, Holder, etc., are so corrupt. What’s it going to take to get all of them out, they are the party of destruction.

    What I think bothers me the most is, it’s right in the face, blatant, obvious – it does not take someone who follows politics to actually say hmmmm somethings wrong. They ALL turn a blind eye (it’s beyond stupidity).

    I hope Issa does not let up, they are certainly keeping him busy.

    • Indeed. You know the NYT would mount a smear (lame) unless there were something riding on it. Let’s hope Rep. Issa doesn’t wilt under the fire.

    Obama’s Watergate? Let’s get on the stick MSM, do YOUR JOB. Where is the special prosecutor? Who is looking out for the citizens of this country?

      You nailed it here Gino. Hussein has dozens of Watergates going on at any given time that all run deeper and wider and more blatant than anything Tricky Dick could have dreamed of.

      The difference back then was the press reported. The people found out.

      • Oysteria

        The press only reported then because Dicky was a Republican. They have always, always, reported the way we see now. They have always gone to great lengths to avoid reporting on Democratic malfeasance and socialist failures and communist atrocities abroad up to the point that it simply could not be ignored any longer. And the ones that do it best get the Murrow Award – the father of them all.

    Kinda of interesting that 10’s of millions of us “low on the totem pole” citizens know that that our entire federal government is corrupt and lying to us. We know that hundreds of billions or even trillions of tax dollars have funneled into the coffers of unions and political allies. We know that Obamacare is unconstitutional and will collapse under its own weight just as we know medicare, medicaid and social security are.We know that our President is aligned with islamists who are intent on destroying us, as he backstabs our allies and bolsters our enemies. We know that our debt has reached crminally insane levels and that the Fed is buying dubious treasury bonds with money they print at will.

    Our entire Federal Government is Solyndra on an unfathomable scale. There is no FBI to call folks. It is up to us.

Projects like these will be developed throughout U.S.–funded by taxpayer money, funnelled to robber barons, much like the railroads.

    “Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.”

    I have a friend and a relative who suffer from NPD. They are constantly making, then breaking promises in order to puff themselves up and make themselves admirable above all. But when the time comes to put their money where their mouth is, they disappear – or almost violently deny – their former promises (lies).

    Obama made this situation — fully knowing it would fail. But the temporary boost in popularity and admiration was far more important to him than the disaster that he KNEW was right down the road.

    Our president has a serious mental problem that clouds his judgement and distorts his ability to make the right choices versus those that simply boost his ego.

    He still thinks the entire world loves him. He needs a doctor and therapy.

  • What I want to know is “who loaned Solyndra money?”

    Remember the government didn’t actually give Solyndra money, they guaranteed loans up to $535 million. So when Solyndra goes bankrupt the tax payer is paying these folks that gave loans to Solyndra.

    What if Solyndra was set up to knowingly lose money by the people who then gave the loans to the company after Obama pledged to guarantee them with taxpayer dollars?

    I really think this aspect needs to be looked into. Not just who in the government fast-tracked the approval of backstopping their loans, but who would benefit from the insolvency of Solyndra?

    Actually this reminds me of Teapot Dome.

    Both were energy scandals. The Navy had taken oil field at Teapot Dome and some other locations to insure their new oil fired ships wouldn’t run out of oil. The were transferred from the Navy Department to the Department of the Interior where the secretary granted no-bid contracts to oil companies who bribed him. In this case the scandal was caused by personal greed.

    Solyndra involves a new technology favored by the administration and using funds that were supposed to create jobs. The vetting process was hurried along by an ideological administration who was looking for a photo op of “green jobs” being created. In this case the scandal was caused by political greed.

    Comments like the one in this article only makes thing worse for Obama. Not only were jobs not created but it cost $495,000 per job destroyed. Obama has a lot to explain.

    Sorry, but being higher up on the totem pole makes you LESS likely to see the truth, not moreso. Because the higher up you go, the less incentive anyone has for telling you the truth, if it’s a negative thing. No one wants to be the messenger who gets killed. And everyone wants to be the hero who makes things that work, or at least stay out of the way.

    Buffoons and ideologues don’t know that things won’t work, because they aren’t driven by evidence. The guy taking the $500 million might have known, or might have just been a buffoon. That everyone lower down knew doesn’t mean any of them told their bosses.

    –She then emphasized that she isn’t even that high on the totem pole and she knew this stuff. So there’s no doubt in her mind that Obama and the White House knew that it wasn’t feasible.

    Sorry, but being higher up on the totem pole makes you LESS likely to see the truth, not moreso. Because the higher up you go, the less incentive anyone has for telling you the truth, if it’s a negative thing. No one wants to be the messenger who gets killed. And everyone wants to be the hero who makes things that work, or at least stay out of the way.

    I have a question for Mark. Seeing how everyone in the administration knew this was a Potemkin Village venture, why was the FBI called in? Methinks this is a ruse to make people think there is an investigation when they are just playing cover up by seizing any incriminating documents. How can we get some transparency on what they are seizing to make sure it isn’t being sterilized by the Justice Dept?

    This has all the “badges of fraud” written all over it. First, the $900B stimulus was designed to allow democrats to make payoffs, and second, Solyndra was set up as a vehicle to do so, all the while sounding as if it is “doing the Lord’s work” of advancing the so-called “green economy” (which doesn’t actually exist). I am willing to bet that this thievery is not only by highly-placed (and now visibly sacrificial) Solyndra principals, but also by Obama, the DNC, Soros, and the Saudis who bought and paid for this nitwit president of ours. (As to the last reference, I ask what better way is there to fly beneath the radar than to use and actually fund an industry competitor as the vehicle for perpetrating graft? The key is that the “competitor” is designed to fail, and never actually threaten OPEC’s interests one iota.)

      This is Chicago corruption at it’s best. If there can be proven a conspirital thread, then he should go to jail as the last governors of Il.. All these crooks are having a harder time hiding their deals. Too many looking at them. Finally there is some dems that are finding out they have been taken for a ride too.. I smile at some of the things coming out… We should have an “independent” investigation into all these allegations. Perhaps a “supreme” comittee appointed by the republican presidential candidates and SP… hahahhahhahha I would love that.

    The Presbo needs to be impeached for his behind the scenes actions on Solyndra in loans. This does not pass the smell test. He is a disaster to this Nation!!!

    Impeach this FRAUD

    Our government is becoming increasingly predatory towards it’s own citizens.

    Capital controls expanding along with a regulatory/police state.

    ‘Cloward and Piven’ on steroids with the full backing of the White House.

    The dictator wannabe fraud needs to be impeached/removed from the Oval Office.

    Fast & Furious not enough? PROVEN fake birth certificate not enough?

    Solyndra tax FRAUD not enough?

    Regulatory supplants Congress NOT ENOUGH?

    Black Panther voter intimidation not enough?

    How about ON RECORD he said he is doing “under the radar”? Is this the coup on the US Constitution?

    Ignoring ‘War Powers Act’ NOT ENOUGH?

    Americans dragged into poverty, losing property, businesses and liberties, neighborhoods turned into jungles

    • I don’t want to imeach him. Mr. Obama is, literally, the best thing that has happened to the conservative movement since…the American Revolution. Think about it. 32 months ago, all the pundits were talking about how this was the start of another “permanent majority” for the Demicratic Party…now, we have the Tea Party Movement, moving by leaps and bounds to take over control of the GOP from the currently moribund leadership (who’s motto is: “Going along to get along…”). Not quite 3 years ago, we were looking at a party who’s time had past…now we’re looking at taking not just congressional districts that haven’t had GOP representation since 1923 (NY9) but 12 seats in the Senate as well as another 30 in the House…

      Thank you, Mr. Obama, you’ve been a gift from G-d!

        It is not just the Tea Party taking control of the GOP, it is the dismissel of all professional politicians that do not have the people and the Constitution first in their agenda. Whether it is Republicans or Democrats, it does not matter. If you are not trustworthy, honest and take a stand against anything that does not stand the Constitutional test, then you will go. You will only have the term you were elected by accident. NO more power life term congressional or senatoral lives anymore. There is too much corruption, too much money, too much power to those too long in office. There should be term limits on congressional and senatorial electorials just as there is in the president. It will help keep their hands out of our pockets. So, YES, thank you for waking up so many of us, and we will not go away!

  • This is the tipping point…the MSM is beginning to turn on this adminsitration. This shows that Mr. Obama is viewed by the MSM as “unelectible” at this point. Please…stop and think about this. The MSM has put everything they have on the line for this man…and now, they have finally figured out that they elected an empty suit.

    With a smattering of small journalistic reports like this, the MSM is now showing that they don’t believe Mr. Obama can be re-elected. They are showing now, that they were wrong in only showing “The One” in a positive light. We can expect over the next 14 months, an increasing amount of negative reports on this adminstration as more and more MSM editors “see the light” of just how much they f*cked up in helping to elect this obamantion to the highest office in the land.

    The MSM sold their souls for this man…and now the “chickens are coming home to roost”.

    Why is it so hard to believe that Presbo and his administration are not merely incompetent and ineffectual?
    Why does corrupt and manipulative always seem to keep coming up as the first choice?

    Solar and Wind are never going to replace Oil. You have to understand the Energy Equation which is basic math. All of the energy used to make solar panels or wind turbines has to be subtracted from the equation. Once you have subtracted the energy used to produce the solar panels or wind turbines you can then consider the energy produced as positive gain. Until that point you are operating at an energy loss. The amount of energy produce by solar or wind will take years to turn your energy gain to the positive.

    Would LOVE to know how much “Van Jones” Obamas “Green Jobs Czar” received .. Who is paying his rent the man doesn’t have a job… where is the money coming from?

  • Anonymous

    You know that he never hid a bit of this.He was on the news last winter or early spring at this plant taking a tour.It showed where the owners and Obama shook hands.Shortly after this solar panel went way up in price.I could have afforded 2 -100 watt panels before he helped that company out with money.

    hmmm, if ‘everybody knew’…y’know, the Solyndra employees??! like ‘Jenny’…why did she or any of them wait to spill this? just to keep one of those 1100 jobs for a bit longer? yea, ‘see something, say something’ eh?..doesn’t help much, if you hold your tongue. I just hope that this is the final nail in the green coffin of govt. dubious investments…NO MORE! let the private sector pursue the viable green options, if they’re valid business opportunities, they’ll get rich… if not, they’ll just sputter out like they should.

    Why as a country do we always act surprised when we learn of this type of action by our elected officials, we should be used to it by now, after all this did not just start. The fact is we need to run about all of the politicians out of D.C. and start over.

    ” It had applied for government loans during the Bush administration. That administration dragged their feet or sat on the deal because the financials did not make sense. ”

    The Bush Administration had given tentative approval prior to Obama’s inauguration. Solyndra had been well-funded privately and the Bush Administration was pushing for the loan guarantee. .

    So why did the FBI suddenly decide to raid Solyndra, boxing up every available document for “safe keeping”?

    The House Energy and Commerce Committee has been investigating the Solyndra loan scam since February, demanding and eventually having to subpoena documents from the White House Office of Management and Budget.

    But as a result of the raid, every page, every note, every loan document, every disbursement–say to political campaigns–will now be critical parts of an “ongoing investigation” being conducted by the Obama Justice Department.

    So discussions between Kaiser and Solyndra, Kaiser and the White House–which he visited 16 times between 2009 and 2011–records of donations or deals will be held in strictest secrecy by the Justice Department.

    In short, Eric Holder’s FBI, White House guard have just bagged, tagged and secreted away every piece of documentary evidence of Obama/Kaiser/Solyndra wrongdoing.
