CBS News: 11 More Solyndras In Obama Energy Program

Obama is simply pouring our tax dollars down the ‘clean energy’ crap hole with no regard for whether it is a good investment or not. CBS has done a fairly good report uncovering these 11 companies and their questionable financial statuses, some of which have already gone bankrupt just as Solyndra did:



They only thing missing in this story is how these clean energy CEOs are politically connected to the Obama administration. Just like Solyndra, this smells a lot like political payback and why this isn’t running 24/7…well, we all know why this isn’t running 24/7. We’re lucky this even got reported by the Obama media.

  1. Obama is corrupt, we all know that. He funnels money into failing companies as a political move. He is not saving or creating any jobs by doing this. That is why I will NEVER buy a GM car, they still owe the government billions and the Volt, that is another failed issue. Ford is still #1 with no bailout.

    We need to turn this country around and bring it back to what our forefathers planned for this nation. Obama is a “nation ruination” and can’t even answer questions without a teleprompter. The anti-Christ has no history of records….where are Obamas college records, where is his REAL birth certificate? His former college buddies don’t even remember him. Is there a resemblance between Obama and the anti-Christ knowing these facts.

    Gingrich for president. The lamestream media is trashing Newt for “historical” baggage. All politicians have baggage if we dig deep enough, but the lamestream/left socialists won’t expose democrats, they love the big zero/Obama. Newt has made his mark with his “Contract with America,” a contract he fulfilled that no other politician can match. He is a true conservative, and gaining in the polls. We need this man to bring back our country into prosperity.

    However, I will vote for anyone who runs against the Obama regime.

  2. I don’t think that these were failures. Probably a safe bet that at least some of those funds magically somehow got funneled back into the obamessiah’s campaign warchest.

    Thats what this is really much more about.
    Its not venture capital in any form or fashion.
    I’d call it more of a slush fund operation – paid for by guess who —> YOU!

  3. wow great job ms Attkisson…. didn’t know CBS could report any of obama failures keep it up maybe somebody will start watching cbs news or you could move on to a real news network

  4. Sheryl Attkisson is one of the few good reporters out there. She makes her colleagues and managament uncomfortable for daring to ask questions of the obama admin. I think poor Charlie was queezy having to introduce that story.

  5. Wow! Does this mean the Socialist, incompetent, MSM has actually stopped drinking the Obama kool aid?
    Investing in green energy companies right now, the majority of them anyway, is like the govt. investing in airlines while the wright brothers were trying to get off the ground at Kitty Hawk. It is highly premature. If the government wants to stimulate green energy then here is my step program: Step #1: Invest in current, efficient energy sources (drilling in the gulf, canadian pipeline,etc..) to make us as energy independant as possible, Step #2: While doing Step #1 also support existing companies to invest in R&D with alternative energy sources (give them tax breaks for donating money to alternative energy research and development) Cause the private sector can do it better and create jobs at the same time, Step #3: Get rid of all the red tape and controls with regards to energy exploration and production.
    Do the above and I believe we are energy independant with a combination of fossil fuels and alternative energy sources within a decade.

  6. It would be nice for the top to be blown off these scandals in October. If it happens now, it may be enough time for many voters to forget about what Obama did.

  7. The sooner the top gets blown off this scandal, the better! These clowns and all the cronyism cannot stand the light and scrutiny that’s being turned their way. Go get them Issa! We got your back!

  8. Anybody else feel like we’re on the Titanic? Just another tip of the iceberg folks. Can’t believe CBS actually let the cat out of the bag!

  9. There is a simple explanation for most of the problems we are faced with in these modern times.
    In 1788, James Madison wrote to Thomas Jefferson the following warning,
    “Wherever there is an interest and power to do wong, wrong will generally be done, and not less readily by a powerful and interested party than by a powerful and interested prince.”
    Our Founders feared the abuse of power by both party and leadership.
    They were right to fear such abuse! We can see this abuse played out on a daily basis in the presidency and in both political parties.
    When Jefferson wrote, ” In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution”.
    Taken in that light, does anyone still wonder about the unrelenting assualts on the Constitution perpetrated by government and parties?
    Friends, the Constitution was meant to be our safeguard against totalitarian government. It is being destroyed piece by piece in front of our eyes by those so-called ‘public servants’ who swore to protect and defend it.
    A question for you to think about. Are we still the masters of our government or has government become our master? Think real hard about that.

          1. Somewhere along the way, government stopped fearing the American citizen and thru the use of openended laws turned the tables on us. How many times have you read on sites like this where a commenter has expressed their fear of government? More times then you can count on fingers and toes I bet!
            And the biggest insult to our freedom? Anyone can be arrested and detained without charge and without council all due to the openended National Defense Act, and including the phrase,” terms and definitions to be determined”!!
            This aged Naval warrior isn’t taking this abomination and prostitution of Constitutional law lightly! I know of a Marine stormtrooper or two who aren’t taking it lightly either!
            The fact is my good friend, I know of many former and active duty warriors; Seals, Force Recon, Green Beret and Delta Force Warriors who are appalled by this usurption of constitutional rights. THEY took the same sacred Oath to protect and defend that you and I did. And what is the result this law is having on them? They are angry, very angry! Dangerously angry. This law forces them to arrest their own sisters, brothers, fathers, sons, mothers, WITHOUT DUE PROCESS.
            Believe this, Mike, the government knows it can’t win a civil war or enforce a writ of martial law. There truely are tens of millions of us and only a few thousands of them. They plan to win at the ballot box, by whatever means. I urge that we do the same, but by using the Constitution and Bill of Rights to bludgeon them with.
            If they win, we lose. If we win, most of them will either flee or go to prison.
            Did you watch the debate last night? Never forget that some of those openly stated their support for this law. In my book that makes them unelectable!

            1. I did watch. We must force government (congress) to start full prosecutions. The real problem is, government does not self police. They pardon one another in private and hide the crimes from us as best as they can. This must stop. This might be where I am drawing my personal violence line, though I want to remain calm and peaceful, we may be past that, already.

              1. Calm and Peaceful is what we must be, my friend! We can defeat them at the ballot box, and THAT is the proper venue. You remember your oath, Marine, to Protect and Defend. That mission begins at the ballot box! My words are meant to inform. Information is power when used wisely and honestly.
                It is true that congress does almost nothing to police itself, and that is the reason for voting the garbage out. Not just some of them, but MOST of them. There are quite a few decent and uncorrupted men and women in congress and their goals are the same as ours, the restoration of Constitutional Liberties and Freedoms! The problem is that there aren’t enough of them! That’s where our votes can make a difference. Why keep a Pelosi or people like her in power? I can’t vote her out since I don’t live in San Fran. The voters there must do that. We must use our voices to inform the voters there of the danger people like her present to their freedoms, families, wealth. In short, we must recruit Constitutional Warriors, not blood and guts warriors. This is truely a battle for the soul of America and MUST be won at the ballot box, not in the streets. I’m saying to you what I have said to hundreds of angry citizens and warriors. TO RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION TO SUPREMACY, IT MUST BE DONE AT THE BALLOT BOX. To resort to violence further reduces it’s authority.

                1. While I agree for the most part, I am bothered that Darryl Issa, who is an upstanding and honest man, has done nothing more than begin some low level investigations. Don’t you feel that the case for Fast and Furious should be farther along, like charges leveled?

                2. I do agree, Mike. I like Issa as well. However, the stumbling blocks congress has built into its investigations and the foot dragging in the White House and DOJ insure a slow and plodding pace. But yes my friend, there should have been some charges brought by now.

                3. So, if the built in processes don’t and won’t work, what is the next step? Excrowing tax payments en masse ? I don’t know how well that will work. Wesley Snipes, who was right in his lawsuit against the IRS, still spent time in prison. I don’t see any other fall back positions to hope for.

                4. At this time we don’t know if the process will work or not. Issa really needs to step it up.
                  Escrowing taxes is mass doesn’t stop uncle from printing more worthless dollars. As things are now, uncle will always get what he wants because we have senators and reps who will back his play, rather then back us, the American citizen. Thats why this election and the next two are so important.
                  The fall back position is the same as it has ever been and is the attack position as well, the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION.
                  In past elections folks were hearing the lullabies played to them by politicians whose main goal was and is to retain power at any cost. Unfortunately, that COST fell squarely upon the citizen. 2010 was a wake up call for most of us, Mike. People opened their eyes wide and got the hell scared out of them. The path to restoration began then and is gathering momentum.
                  Harry Reid and other salso realized the threat that 2010 represented and have continually attacked conservatives and Tea Party folks ever since. While that ploy has had some effect, they used their old standby ploy of setting one group against another and that IS having better effect for them.
                  They are frightened and will do whatever they have to do to retain their hold on American government. ANYTHING! What they represent has a name, Marxism, an old enemy of ours.
                  We MUST remove them from government, but it must be done Constitutionally. Otherwise, we are no better then them.

                5. I’m good with that theory. I, myself have told people it will take 3 election cycles to fix thinks. This up coming election being number two. This is my first choice. God, I hope you hear our pleas.

                6. God always answers our prayers. Sometimes HIS answers may not be apparent to us but HE always answers us and HE will this time as well. VG

                7. Amen my American brothers. Reading your dialogue both today and yesterday I am filled with a strong sense of security knowing you and many like more like you are standing watch over this nation that I love. Ready to do what is necessary at the appropriate time. God bless you.

                8. My dear friend, YOU are there as well! Your voice is just as important as anyone elses, but you know that don’t you! TG, I don’t know where you call home, but our struggle is for not just America, Canada and the rest of humanity, but for those who BELIEVE in a just and merciful God! YOU are and have been on the front lines for as long as I have been reading your comments. I’m PROUD to call you my friend! Weither we meet in this life or the next, can I tell you that I am HONORED to speak with you and share with you ?!!! Thank you Patriot, not just a North American Patriot, but a Patriot at a time the world cries out her NEED for Patriots! Our common bond? We hold God above politics, bounderies and gender! VG

                9. Absolutely, I am navy trained, did a coupla WestPac’s, 52, and still strong, I have been so far removed from military speak that I sometimes feel like an alien. Reading your comments is inspirational not only for the future but for my character, and that is what I aspire to. We are all on this sinking ship together and together we bail it out before it sinks. I’m with you, my friend. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

              2. Jeez! Whats up with discus today? If I were paranoid I might think uncle sugar is looking over my shoulder!

  10. And just think … GM is not on the list – yet.

    But the successor to the Volt – the ‘BTU’ might help.

  11. Sounds about right. Every time it’s revealed that there’s a problem with government being irresponsible or stupid, in the end the problem is exponentially worse than initially anticipated. I don’t know what any of these companies do and I’m not really interested in finding out, but I’d be willing to bet that, even with massive taxpayer “support,” 90% of these companies will be bankrupt and out of business by the time the 2014 midterm election comes around.

  12. I wonder how much of this money found it’s way back into the campaign coffers of the DNC and PresidentDowngrade.

  13. That’s the awesome thing about socialism though, whether you provide a valuable service or not, you still gets paid. At least for awhile.

  14. This is a huge cancer in our government.

    Read “Throw Them All Out” by Schweizer. You’ll be well informed about this…and HOT!!

  15. Is CBS waking up to the corruption of the WH ?

    CBS is also the only network pursuing fast and stupid

    I hope they stay withthis stuff

    HEY ISSA – GET BUSY !!

    Please don’t blow this opportunity!

  16. Man, CBS is biting the hand that feeds them. Welcome home CBS. Common sense and accurate journalism are awaiting you.

  17. I bet Obama told the companies, ” hold this cash, file bankruptcy, then we will party with the cash when I’m thrown out on my ass next election.”

  18. This is pure and simple money laundering funneled to the Democrat party. Especially considering the amount of money “donated” by the executives of these companies to Obama’s war chest.

  19. Will somebody please start impeachment hearings? Impeach someone, anyone. They’ve all broken laws and stolen our money. Do something before WE do something.

    1. Obama is black (at least in appearance) so it isn’t going to happen. He will get away with crimes that no white POTUS would ever be able to. Sad but true. Our country is so dysfunctional / politically correct we have different rules for each race and class of people.

    2. It’s not like our congressmen are dumping tax payer money into these businesses, getting stock in return, creating a bubble, then selling off the stock, pocketing the cash and watching the companies crash and burn. Cause if that were the case surely the media would report it. Right? I mean it’s not like NBC’s parent company is General Electric, right?
