Solyndra Scandal – contractor reveals that everyone knew up front that the company would eventually fail.

On Wednesday night, Mark Levin had a caller who had been an employee of a company that worked on the Solyndra plant. Solyndra is the now-bankrupt solar manufacturing company in the Bay area that Obama touted a year ago as a shining example of his “green jobs” intiative. She revealed scandalous details about the launching of this company and its half a billion dollars in government funding that was part of Stimulus I. Here is a transcript of what she said:

Caller: “But the interesting thing about it is, while we were out there, while we were building it, because it is a half-a-billion-dollar plant, everyone already knew that China had developed a more inexpensive way to manufacture these solar panels. Everyone knew that the plant wouldn’t work, but they still did it, they still built it.”

Mark: “Let me underscore this. This was a half a billion dollars in American taxpayer money for something that the people working there already knew that it wasn’t feasible.”

Caller: “Yes.”

Mark: “Do you believe the Obama administration knew it wasn’t feasible?”

Caller: “Oh, absolutely. I wasn’t high on the totem pole at all, and even someone like me knew that. And we were still breaking ground.”

So add another deep and serious scandal for the troubled Obama administration.

ABC News reported Thurday, “One of the lead private investors in Solyndra was an Oklahoma billionaire [George Kaiser] who served as an Obama ‘bundler,’ raising money during the 2008 presidential campaign.” (See article, FBI Raids Solyndra.) Energy officials of course responded that Kaiser’s personal ties to Obama had nothing to do with the government funding of this plant.

Of course, of course. The selection process was totally evenhanded. Why would we think anything different? And the recession ended a long time ago, you’ll get to keep your health insurance under Obamacare, which, by the way, won’t add one dime to the deficit. Oh, and Obama’s number one priority is creating jobs. Yes, yes, just trust your government, people, and everything will be fine.

One Response to Solyndra Scandal – contractor reveals that everyone knew up front that the company would eventually fail.

    As an actual “employee” of Solyndra, I see how the sharks are trying to spin this. I was a true believer until the last moments. I still believe in the viability. So a contractor’s opinion of what is viable is as relevant as an ex wife’s opinion of character. Jaded is as jaded does. I cherish my time and my work there. And if you want to comment, put in your work, miss.

    Comment by David Hall:
    This employee of a contractor is not stating her opinion of the viability of Solyndra. She is only reporting on what was being said. And what she was told, that she is now reporting on, was correct.

    What you say is an interesting insight into the religious fervor of those who believe in these environmental issues. You were a true believer until the bitter end. I believe you.

    Part of me admires this. But a bigger part of me wants to say, “Wake up, man! The bankruptcy has been filed and the plant closed. Why are you having such a hard time coming to grips with this?” You still believe in the viability? Why is it that you have such a strong desire to want to believe in this now defunct green energy project that you are questioning the motives of someone who clearly has been proved right?
