are currently at least two major scandals brewing in Washington. One is
Solyndra and the other is “Fast and Furious.” I believe both will prove
to be much bigger than we now think and like all such scandals, these
stories have legs and they are not going away. First let us look at
have heard the story of this doomed solar energy plant, probably one of
many “green companies” which will not be around very long. We, the
taxpayers, loaned this outfit half a billion dollars and it appears they
used the money to enrich a few executives and the rest to file for
bankruptcy. There were many who advised against this loan, but it was
made anyway. Now the excuses and alibis are being floated. I have heard
some of the Washington elite say that sometimes we just have to gamble
in order to create alternative forms of energy. I think it is a lot
easier to gamble when you are using another person’s money. I have also
heard that some of the Solyndra executives were major contributors to
Obama’s campaign. It also appears that there are other companies who
have, or will soon face, the same failure. The Obama Administration, in
their wisdom, has now decided to not release any more information on
this matter. They are telling Congress and the American people, just
trust us, there is nothing more to be learned from our secret e-mails.
What? Do they really think this is just going to go away? Fat chance.
number two involves Attorney General Holder and the “Fast and Furious”
gun program. He has been subpoenaed to testify before Congress to
explain why he apparently lied about knowing of this program. He says he
didn’t read the memos that were on his desk. Now we have dead law
enforcement officers and guns in the hands of ruthless drug cartel
members and they originated with our own government. And Holder didn’t
know anything about this program? Who does he think is going to buy
that? My take is, stick a fork in Holder. He’s done.
again high powered people are trying to cover up matters and incidents
which will be discovered and once again the results will be that the
cover up is at least as bad if not worse than the original incident. Of
course Solyndra got the money because of their connections through
campaign contributions. Of course Holder knew of and probably approved
the “Fast and Furious” gun program. Obama probably knew about it also.
These things don’t happen in a vacuum.
is it possible that so-called intelligent people like Presidents and
Attorney Generals do not realize that everything they say or have ever
said are probably recorded somewhere by someone just waiting for the
opportunity to release their data. Fifty years ago you could probably
get away with lies and deceit. Not today. Also, do they really think
that the Republican controlled House is going to just let this pass? Are
they crazy? Of course this will be pursued until the last breath of
scandal is squeezed out, exposed and used for the benefit of the
pursuers. As John Wayne once said, “Life is tough. It is a lot tougher
if you’re stupid.”
