Jet Fuel-Gate Is Obama's New Solyndra (http://news.investors.com/Article/594703/201112131858/navy-biofuel-gate-latest-obama-green-scam.htm)

Ecofanaticism: SolyndraGate was no isolated case of corrupt government misspending. The U.S. Navy was just forced to buy 450,000 gallons of biofuels from an Obama-connected firm at an outrageous $16 per gallon.

The massive Obama stimulus was supposed to generate millions of jobs, but the $535 million loan guarantee it gave to solar panel maker Solyndra on the eve of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy illustrated the fundamental incompetence of Obama's neo-Keynesian economic ideology.

Now we find the Navy partnering with the Agriculture Department to purchase hundreds of thousands of gallons of alternative biofuel in place of standard JP-5 fuel for Navy aircraft the biggest federal purchase of biofuel ever.

It's part of the White House's "we can't wait for Congress" strategy as the 2012 election year looms. But JP-5 typically costs less than $4 a gallon. If a family on a budget started filling up with $16-a-gallon gas, it might want to adopt the motto, "we can't wait to go broke."

A look at the lucky seller of this environmentalist version of the proverbial $600 Pentagon toilet seat indicates that the move is not just wasteful, but ethically suspect.

As J.E. Dyer noted over the weekend on the Hot Air Green Room, "a member of Obama's presidential transition team, T. J. Glauthier, is a 'strategic advisor' at Solazyme, the California company that is selling a portion of the biofuel to the Navy. Glauthier worked shock, shock on the energy-sector portion of the 2009 stimulus bill."

Solazyme had already gotten a nearly $22 million chunk of change out of the taxpayers thanks to the 2009 stimulus. We heard the ludicrous excuse last week from Obama Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, as quoted in the National Journal, that "we are doing this for one simple reason: It makes us better fighters" because "our use of fossil fuels is a very real threat to our national security and to the U.S. Navy ability to protect America and project power overseas."

What about the "very real threat" to the Navy of not having enough money for the ships, fighters and ammunition it needs to protect America? President Obama's assault on the Pentagon could scrap 60 of the Navy's ships, including two carrier groups.

The biofuel will be used next summer by we're not making this up "the Great Green Fleet Carrier Strike Force" in exercises near Hawaii. Mabus painted the picture of America's great naval force advancing from sails to coal to diesel to nuclear, and now finally to biofuels. But if we keep starving the Navy, it may soon not have enough loose change to repair the sails on Old Ironsides.

Al Gorian hoax pays off for politicians once again. Now you know why the repubs jumped on this Dem hoax. It's a major gravy train for funneling funds to cronies, and buying votes with tax dollars.

Bill, now you know I'm against fraud and corruption in both government and the private sector. :)

This is just more proof that the Al Gorian hoax is just a money making scam for pols and their corporate cronies. I may be a capitalist, but I don't endorse advertising fraud or the gov't picking business winners and losers. :thumbsup:

I think some ppl just fail to see the logic here:

By borrowing from foriegn countries to pay 4 times the prices for bio fuel we are lowering our dependency on foreign oil...:disbelief:
...:banghead:

So where's the outrage, manufactured or otherwise for the other seller of the biofuel?



the California company that is selling a portion of the biofuel to the Navy

At some point , the oil based resources will run out, but of course you would rather everything just come to a screeching halt, while everyone panics and scrapes out the barrels for the last drop!

As the village idiot stated he does not need the oil and gas, you should drain every drop you have right now, this minute and donate it all to the military.

You know that same government entity that you have so much fascination with that you just can't cease posting stories about, yet have never served!!

Investigate all the funds going to the other "firm" as well.

And while you're at it, investigate all the $$$Billions that were wasted by the Shrub in the ME.

The Hypocrisy of the Right is always astounding!
