White House Orders Review Of Energy Department Loans To Avoid Solyndra Subpoena And Exercising "Executive Privilege"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The Solyndra-gate scandal, which the GOP realizes has the potential to shake the Obama administration to the very top, refuses to go away. Earlier today AP reported that to a republican Subpoena demanding all documents instead of just those selectively produced, "could trigger a claim of executive privilege by the Obama administration and elevate the political stakes. The loan is being investigated by two House committees, which have released Solyndra-related documents from federal agencies including the Energy and Treasury departments and the Office of Management and Budget." The White House has refused a request by the House Energy and Commerce Committee for all internal White House communications about Solyndra. White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler said the committee leaders' request has implications for "long-standing and significant institutional executive branch confidentiality interests." Naturally: it would be a big hit to the presidency's interests if it was uncovered that crony capitalist vigilante #1 himself is more than willing to distributed taxpayer capital to the highest bidder. So instead the The White House is ordering a review of loan guarantees made by the Energy Department after a California solar company that got a half-billion-dollar federal loan went bankrupt. There are more than two dozen of these to a variety of clean energy companies." And here is where the latest joke from this president jumps the shark: "[White House chief of staff] Daley said he's tapping a former Treasury official to conduct the review." A former Treasury official... of the Obama administration?

To paraphrase Erin Burnett, "Seriously?"

At least in Europe they assume the audience is somewhat sophisticated before they baffle them with endless bullshit and non-news after non-news.

Here, they skip that key assumption completely.

The "Plan" as was stated publicly by the glovermint itsveryownself was to blame the sales of fully automatic weapons on regular evey day ordinary citizens who bought the stuff by the truckload (might as well still have been sealed in Milspec containers labeled property of US Government) at their local gun shop and resold it directly to the Mexican Drug Cartels so there would be full reason, justification to stop the sale of firearms to every day ordinary American citizens. 

Next, in case tyou were wondering but didn't have the time or even give a shit to ask about... Blackberry.
So every government under the sun is getting pissed about these here Blackberry secure information systems.  Can't read everybody's mail, right?  So Blackberry says, we'll kinda let you under the tent flap and everybody says not good enough.  So what happens?  All of a sudden, horrific major system outages all over the entire planet.  D-U-fuckin-H.   Now everybody's leaving Balckberry for "less secure" systems. 

And Happy Birthday.  10th birthday today of the Patriot Act.

 Chief Justice Burger further stated that executive privilege would most effectively apply when the oversight of the executive would impair that branch's national security concerns.

Using tax payer funds to subsidize losses from a campaign contributer does not equal national security concerns.

Not sure why they are invoking the idea of executive privilege?  This implies they are hiding something that would incriminate the president or some other very high level administration people.  That is, they did something illegal, which would/could lead to some real nastiness.

If it was just incompetence, so what?  The government mishandles far more than $500M on a daily basis.

It could also be a side show to distract all from Fast & Furious where the real dead bodies are hidden.

Very odd.

"Executive Privilege" was very firmly cemented into place during the previous administration.

If someone requests information from the Executive branch, and it is not provided, THERE IS NO RECOURSE except impeachment.

We've been through all this.  The laws are clear, but the Executive enforces them, and when they are not enforced, there's nowhere else to go.  Some folks were upset during Dubya's tenure at the same behavior when it came to questions about waterboarding and imprisoning foreigners, but we let it all go.

So now we just suck it up, or we get an impeachment started.

Good fuckin' luck with that.

questions about waterboarding and imprisoning foreigners

Many did/do not like Bush, fine, I am not here to defend him.  But many of the issues around "torture" and "imprisoning foreigners" were well vetted.  Many came to the conclusion that waterboarding was not torture and that imprisoning foreigners was retaining enemy combatants (done during most wars), neither illegal as best I know.  You may disagree, but these are serious issues that relate directly to national security.

To equate these to potential election fraud (trading government favors/loans for campaign donations) at the highest level of government is quite a stretch, even for rabid Bush haters.

Here's a simpler version of the previous post:

IF the Executive does not enforce the law, THERE IS NO RECOURSE except to impeach.

Congress cannot DO ANYTHING when the President doesn't obey the law.  It has no police force or military.

(I only mentioned Dubya 'cause I wanted to see you defend him.  You didn't disappoint.)

I'm all for impeachment, though.  I hope Obama is impeached--government has been operating far too effectively considering the mess it's made.

Your point is a good one, if the President refuses to obey or enforce the laws, there are few options other than impeachment.  But this has been going on since at least Lincoln and his incident with antiwar rabble rousers.  

So I can assume your throwing the Bush issue in the discussion was an intentional provocation and lacking substance.  So be it.

America is founded on the idea of a “moral” population, with laws and a system of justice of course.  What we have today with millions of lawyers and endless laws shows how far we are from these ideas.

A REAL AMERICAN HERO....

 

THOMAS JEFFERSON

At 5, began studying under his cousins tutor.

At 14, studied classical literature and additional languages.

At 16, entered the College of William and Mary.

At 19, studied Law for 5 years starting under George Wythe.

At 23, started his own law practice.

At 25, was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses.

At 31, wrote the widely circulated "Summary View of the Rights of British America " and retired from his law practice.

At 32, was a Delegate to the Second Continental Congress.

At 33, wrote the Declaration of Independence .

At 33, took three years to revise Virginia ’s legal code and wrote a Public Education bill and a statute for Religious Freedom.

At 36, was elected the second Governor of Virginia succeeding Patrick Henry.

At 40, served in Congress for two years.

Franklin and John Adams.

At 46, served as the first Secretary of State under George Washington.

At 53, served as Vice President and was elected president of the American Philosophical Society..

At 55, drafted the Kentucky Resolutions and became the active head of Republican Party.

At 57, was elected the third president of the United States .

At 60, obtained the Louisiana Purchase doubling the nation’s size.

At 61, was elected to a second term as President.

At 65, retired to Monticello .

At 80, helped President Monroe shape the Monroe Doctrine.

At 81, almost single-handedly created the University of Virginia and served as its first president.

At 83, died on the 50th anniversary of the Signing of the Declaration of Independence.

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: "This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe .
Thomas Jefferson

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
Thomas Jefferson

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.
Thomas Jefferson

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
Thomas Jefferson

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
Thomas Jefferson

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
Thomas Jefferson

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
Thomas Jefferson

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Thomas Jefferson

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive
the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

DAX monthly chart at blog shows recent bullish candle revealing aggressive short covering rally enclosed within big picture bearish pattern.

Bullish USD weekly/monthly and bearish SP500/DOW monthly charts will eventually ensure reversal of equity uptrend.

outrageous pissing away of taxpayers money ..no doubt it all fell into some very grateful hands (names?) that would have been very empty handed had the public money not arrived just before the bankruptcy

i'm not sure what needs investigating... surely we must have the names of the those who railroaded the publc money through, those at Solyndra that pocketed it and heads must roll with immdeiate effect

Bumma pack your bags chump

I don't understand. The House Committee had the upper hand here, and already obtained a lot of documents that show that this was in part a politically motivated loan (if only just because of the timing, which rushed the due diligence to allow Biden to give a speech). Why are they undermining their own credibility with this move? Republicans: you made your point already and now you are threatening the proper separation of powers by pushing further. Do you want the next Republican to be subpoenaed for his emails? Obama personally visited the Solindra company and pushed for the cash advance funds for them, so now the white house is saying we did'nt know anything about it?...too late Barack, you already stepped in it, you can't wipe it off now....
