With this payment, Solyndra obtained a $535,000,000 essentially unsecured taxpayer financed loan. This represents a 6146% return on investment.

Similar rates of return on investment can be seen with George Soros’ support for, yet personal exemption from, the economically horrific Frank-Dodd Soros also contributed to support the Obama Administration imposing an Off Shore USA Oil Drilling Moratorium with low cost federal Loans to Soros’ Brazilian off shore oil exploration.

From an investment perspective, there is no other greater return on earth than payments to the democrat party.

The “4th-estate” of lore & legend morphed itself into a 5th-column long ago, some as early as LBJ’s “Great Society”, but any stragglers were caught up in the rush after Woodward & Bernstein’s “All the President’s Men” tell-all on Nixon & Watergate…

J-schools far & wide abandoned all the old standards of objective reporting, and adopted the *teaching* mantra that the only raison d’etre for journalists & journalism is to “change the world”. They have done their very best ever since to make themselves the very heart of “bleeding-heart liberalism”. They have deliberately cultivated their immunity to facts, logic & reasoned debate, much like their long-time partners in social upheaval, the eco-fascists, with whom they have a symbiotic relationship as parasites of the Republic we’ve known and loved… *sigh*

It looks like the Air and Space Museum. How much did they spend on this palatial digs? I think we need to move the UN out there to occupy this building, see the Real Estate in NY and get our 535 million back.
Those two boys better take the 5th because they are going down like Enron boys for violation of the RICO statute and SEC infractions.

News stories have arisen that the Solyndra investors were interested in an IPO to get their investment back. Given the testimonies from the top officials in June of this year about the viability of the company, this would translate into securities fraud. The media needs to call them out on the carpet and demand why they not only lied to Congress, but why did they lie to potential investors. I do understand that financial prospectuses do inflate sales projections, but usually those rosy projections are backed by market analysis, competitive analysis and hard facts.
As for the lame excuse given by the DOE, this Administration continues to do it because they know the media will take their word for it and not challenge their word. This is what happens when our Fourth Estate abandons its role as a protector of the American taxpayer.

Wonder what they had for an interest in Solyndra?
