You can’t make this stuff up…

How long did the Obama Administration hold the Keystone XL Pipeline project hostage in bureaucratic Limbo before they dropped it so gas prices could stay high and Buffet and other rich fat cats in bed with this government could make a killing carrying some of that oil by train?

Solyndra update: Pearls to the swine..

The left might be desperate to see this story die, but it is like the gift that keeps on giving. We have often gone back and forth about if this was just people with no clue making stupid decisions, if this was political cronyism, or if it was both, and the more we find out, the more it looks like it is both.

Green jobs company that got $535 million from Obama raided by the FBI.

More than a year or so ago, Solyndra and other Green technology companies like it, where being touted by the progressive greens as the solution to both the economic wreck and employment disaster they wrongly, but quite successfully, wanted everyone to believe was caused by evil Boosh-Chimpy-McHitler instead of progressive government pressure on lending institutions and a myriad of schemes and scams to overcome the laws of economics and reality that eventually caused both the … Read more

The Latest Stimulus Casualty

Oops:

A company that served as a showcase for the Obama administration’s effort to create jobs in clean technology shut down Wednesday, leaving 1,100 people out of work and taxpayers obligated for $535 million in federal loans.

Solyndra, a California solar panel maker, had long been an administration favorite. Over the past two years, President Obama and Energy Secretary Steven Chu each had made congratulatory visits to the company’s Silicon Valley headquarters.
