When Barack Hussein Obama was elected to the Presidency the first thing he did after capering around jazz handing and singing “Oh Dem Golden Slippers,” and “De Camptown Races” was to embark on a programme of stimulus spending which he said would kick start the American economy. He would do this, his aides promised, by investing in “shovel ready projects” (i.e. hiring guys with ripped, oiled bodies. dressing them in fetish harness and gimp masks and having them shovel money into a bottomless pit) and in the green economy. This, as American taxpayers now know, involved giving away lots of their hard earned to his old friends and contacts and the most generous campaign donors.
Some of his “old friends” however have turned out to be rather dubious characters however, there is Tony Rezko, a Chicago “businessman” whose colleagues all seem to wear Fedoras,and who is about to be jailed for irregularities in the way he ran his “olive oil business”, Rod Blagojevitch who as state governor of Illinois openly invited bids for the senate seat vacated by Obama when he assumed the Presidency and who has since been found guilty on seventeen charges of corruption.
Then there is William Cellini whose trial on corruption charges keeps getting delayed because his legal team object to any jurors who don’t have criminal records which means in US law the only people who will be allowed to serve on the jury in the Cellini trial are not elegible for jury service.
And there are so many more, too many to list individually. But not all Obama’s friends and associates are corupt politicians. Some are lofty idealists who have devoted their lives to research on topics like “does skunk really rot your brain.”
The question is, are such associates always fit and proper people to receive government investment in the form of loan guarantees?
A company set up with $500 million of Obama’s stimulus money to make and sell solar panels that would generate electricity from sunshine and feed it into the national grid declared itself bankrupt in September and in the wake of that, a scandal is brewing with allegations of cronyism, corruption and financial irresponsibility flying round Washington and sticking like shit to anyone they come in contact with. The Solyndra scandal and the bankruptcy of other “green economy” ventures carries echoes of the dotcom boom in which businesses reliant on an unproven technology were set up with vast cash investments though they had no saleable product, no designs, no realistic patents, no revenue stream and no business plan. In many cases these companies did not even have an idea, just an idea that if they could come up with an idea it would be cool to raise some investment funds and go into business.
Solyndra went bust having lost all of the tax payers hard earned by borrowing up to its credit limit and spending the money on researching luxury offices with en suite Jacuzzis, cocaine parties, expensive sports cars, expensive champagne and even more expensive women. Unfortunately the details of their downfall are sub judice.
Boggart Blog however managed to get a transcript of the inaugural meeting of another greenbubble startup, CaliforniaSunshine Corp:
The directors designate are gathering in their boardroom, the basement of an abandoned building waiting for the last of their number, Jughead, who arrives noisily after falling down the stairs.
Hey Jughead, dude, hows it going?
Me and the guys, dude, we were just talking about getting in on this green energy thing and, like, getting some stimulus money.
We thought solar panels was good, I mean how hard can it be? Sheet of glass, some of those little buttony things, wire and plastic frames. It’s a cinch.
So we thought seeing you, dude, met the Prez one you could, like, call him up.
(dip dippydip dip dipittydip dip dip dipidip … ring-ring ring-ring ring-ring …)

Hey, hi Prez dude, it’s Jughead. The thing is Barry me and some of my buddies were talking ’bout setting up a green energy company and we were, like, wondering if you could help out with investment, what with you being into green stimulus and all. … yeah, Jughead … yeah you do know me … sure you do, we met in a toilet in MacArthur Park, I get you snort a line of coke off my … yeah, back in the closet now, OK, I unnastand. Anyway like I said, me and my buddies need some investment to get our solar panels factory up and running and my ol’ buddy Barry was the first person I thought of … Yeah, MacArthur Park … yeah right off of it … how much? Well how much you off’rin’ …Two hunnert and fifty million dollars, wow, cool, hey that’s ..What? …. just a moment Barry, Mr. President, my budd … partners need to speak to me.
“Never accept the first offer Jughead, first rule of dealing – and business; go for more, go for double,”
For fuck’s sake guys, two hunnert and fifty million is more’n we’ll ever make.
Yeah but if he offered two fifty mill for starters he’s prepared to go higher. Go for double
Double, that’s like … er …
“Half a billion Jughead, tell him it’s going to take half a billion to get up and running.
Hi Mr. Prez Barry dude, yeah, our accountant says it will take half a billion, 500 million. You’re our only hope of gettin’ that kind of cash Barry, if you can’t stretch to that I guess I’ll have to write a book about my life or somp’n … Yeah, the toilet in Macarthur Park … yeah that was the date … you will! Wow cool. all of it! Wow cool. Details? Yeah, I’ll hand you to my buddy, he has a PayPal account.
Well, those of you who feel shocked and betrayed at the way the Obama Presidency has turned out don’t get any sympathy from The Daily Stirrer. We did warn you of what would happen if you voted for him.

U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare
We said it was a scam, now a United Nations official has admitted the whole climate change scare was really about destroying capitalism. But what doo the elites plan to replace it with, A Corporaite Global Dictator ship in which the world is run by unelected bureaucrats selected from withing a small, elite class? Actually we predicted that as well.
Insane Science Pushing The Earth Towards Ecocide.
At the Daily Stirrer we have suspected it for a log time, science is insane, a game for the ethically challenged and sociopathic to compete to be first to develop a new plague, or a death ray, or to trash the enviromnent in pursuit of political power or corporate profits for their paymasters. There’s even a name for what they are doing now, Ecocide.

The arrogance of the watermelons (green on the outside, red on the inside) at the department of energy knows no bounds it seems. Civil Servants at the Department of Energy where Glib Dem minister Ed.

Climate Change: Study shows carbon dioxide dangers are OVERSTATED
That old demon Carbon Dioxide is in the news again today, not because the scaremongering science screechers have come up with a new lie to sell their ‘tax-the-rich’ globalist agenda but because yet another group of sensible scientists have found that carbon Dioxide levels in the atmosphere are overstated. Hardly a surprising result when you consider the global figure is derived from measurements taken on the slopes of Mauna Loa, an active volcano in Hawaii.
Submerged forests’ drowned by ancient climate change revealed by 2014 storms.
Here’s yet another smack in the mouth for those smug, condescending scientists who talk down to the rest of us. Far from being a new thing, climsste change was affecting the environment at the beginning of the Bronze age. How many fossil fuel burning power stations did the beaker people have then, and how many Chelsea tractors were tearing up and down the ridgeways?
Thanks To Global Warming Policy It’s Going To Be a Long Cold Winter For Many
Those of us who were intelligent enough to point out the scientific fallacies behind the global warming scare and the idiotic failure of logic on the part of politiciansbfar too ready to believe the scaremongers and pursue a policy that made developed nations in northern Europe reliant on an unpredictable and uncontrollable energy source like wind for energy are vindicated as Europe braces itself for power shortages this winter due to coal and oil fired power stations being closed to ‘reduce CO2 emissions’.

The U.S. is bombing Iraq isn’t for humanitarian reasons
The involvement of Britain’s Royal Air Force in delivering humanitarian aid in Iraq t has triggered speculations that the UK, may join the US in launching targeted air strikes against the Islamic State.
