Corruption inside the Obama administration runs rampant. The list of scandals grows longer by the moment, with a new one popping up at an ever-increasing rate. However, the Republican leadership empowers the corruption by refusing to fight. They fear Obama and are resigned to waiting for the buzzer instead of stopping the madness.
This week we learned of three more corpses resulting from Obama's operation Fast and Furious. This is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms program that encouraged the smuggling of illegal guns to the drug lords and gangs of Mexico. The resulting bloodshed has been goolish.
Next we saw emails from the White House in the Solyndra scandal, and the extemporaneous record shows corruption. Rep Cliff Stearns of Florida declared at a hearing this week, "The review process took a back seat to the need to set up a photo-op for the vice president and other administration officials."
Solyndra is a politically connected solar energy firm that received more than half a billion dollars in federal loan guarantees. Now the firm is bankrupt. It is one of a string of firms that Obama touted as an engine of "green jobs."
The White House emails show that the Obama administration rushed to get money to the firm based on politics, not job creation. No wonder the stimulus plan didn't stimulate job growth; the money was diverted to the pockets of Obama's political cronies.
Now he's at it again with his new stimulus plan he's trying to push down Congress' throat. This new scheme takes more money from working citizens who could help get the economy moving again with the freedom to create jobs or spend it, thus spurring job creation. But no, Obama is only looking out for those who solidly vote for him and will then have more money to pour into his re-election coffers.
Now the Daily Beast is reporting, "The four-star Air Force general who oversees Air Force Space Command walked into a highly secured room on Capitol Hill a week ago to give a classified briefing to lawmakers and staff, and dropped a surprise. Pressed by members, Gen. William Shelton said the White House tried to pressure him to change his testimony to make it more favorable to a company tied to a large Democratic donor."
The donor is Philip Falcone and the company is his new wireless satellite broadband company, LightSquared. The Democratic donor was sure to profit from the altered testimony to Congress.
