Obama: It’s Time To “Double Down” On Green Energy

Barack Obama

The man who brought us the Solyndra debacle says, “It’s time for us to double down on clean energy that has never been more promising.”

So we’re going to double down on the government trying to both subsidize the existence of green energy and manufacture a market for it.

Meanwhile, we’re almost certainly going to eclipse the $16 trillion mark in national debt before the next election. But sure, let’s throw good money after bad. We can always print more.

    FDR is Obama’s hero.  FDR showed up in the middle of the depression and put air conditioning in the White House.  Let’s see Obama step up and put solar panels on the roof, a windmill in the rose garden and some batteries in the basement and  disconnect the electric lines.  He could be an example for us all, like Michelle was with the vegetable garden.  Talk is cheap, let’s see some action.

      what is really spooky, having read this nuts lines before, I think he is serious about this communist stuff about FDR…
      The good news about racist, fascist, bigoted and very stupid commander in chief,  it is allowing us to take names and dates and faces to the real communists within our midst.  Rep. West nailed their communist caucus, now we get to watch them take there masks off….it is refreshing when we can see it….at least if we cant stop them from reelecting the jerk obama, we know which people are responsible when we come knock, knock, knocking..
      Better yet…..I would rather do it like 1948 style…if you get my drift.

    Newly recently released tax documents, examined and analyzed by Tina Trent of
    sorosfiles.com,
    reveal how billionaire “philanthropist” George Soros expanded his U.S.-based
    empire by using funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009,
    also known as the Obama stimulus. Soros and Obama worked hand-in-glove through
    the stimulus, which has been called the largest single partisan wealth transfer
    in American history.

    The new report has been released by America’s Survival, Inc. (ASI), publisher
    of the Soros Files website, and posted under the title OBAMA STIMULUS DOLLARS
    FUNDED SOROS EMPIRE. The release of the report coincides with an Internet
    advertising campaign on CanadaFreePress.com, a global source of
    news and information, drawing attention to how the transfers of federal funds to
    the Soros empire constitute a bigger scandal than ACORN. In that scandal, the
    House and Senate voted to cut off funds to the Association of Community
    Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) after undercover videos showed ACORN
    officials giving advice on how to hide financial misdeeds and tax crimes. “The
    new and currently unfolding scandal of extravagant spending by the General
    Services Administration, or GSA, is peanuts compared to how Soros tapped the
    public till,” ASI President Cliff Kincaid said.In 2010, tax records show
    that Soros, a convicted inside trader with extensive knowledge of the American
    financial system and government policies under Obama, deployed grantees from his
    Open Society Foundations to lobby for and acquire federal contracts for job
    training, green energy, and community redevelopment programs. By gaining
    control over those resources, Soros advanced his agenda for “green economics,”
    open borders, and increased government handouts. In short, he grew his empire,
    which includes much of the “progressive” movement in the U.S., as the federal
    government itself grew.In the report, Tina Trent analyzes George Soros’s
    grants to organizations in 2010. Four powerful organizations and coalitions—The
    STAR Coalition, The Gamaliel Foundation, the Apollo Alliance, and Green for All
    – are given detailed scrutiny in this regard, with the involvement of Van Jones
    getting special mention. Jones is the former Obama “Green Jobs Czar” fired after
    information about his communist past surfaced through the work of anti-communist
    blogger Trevor Loudon and then-Fox News personality Glenn Beck.

    He needs to get to his goal of a billion campaign dollars and people aren’t forking over like they did in 08. So he’s going full tilt to get the crony kickbacks.
