List of Failed Obama Green Energy & Solar Companies in the Billions

List of Failed Obama Green Energy & Solar Companies in the Billions | EconomicFactors | Scoop.it

Below is a list of failed energy companies backed by President Barack Obama and funded with tax dollars. President Obama has gone to great lengths to support policies to advance so-called green energy technologies but so far has met with utter failure. The President plans to double down on these unproven, expensive failed technologies if he gets a second term....

Obama’s Marxist Ideology is Showing Again - Political Outcast

Obama’s Marxist Ideology is Showing Again - Political Outcast | EconomicFactors | Scoop.it

"You didn't do that..."  The Obama worldview is a collectivist worldview.  Where he decides what's "fair" and "equitable".  Lenin, Mao, Hitler shared Obama's elitist viewpoint.  But should Americans bow to the precepts of Marxism?  Do you recognize or embrace the shared rage that unite Communists?

 

Fortunately for us, America was formed from the principles commonly referred to as the Judeo Christian worldview. America has long been considered an oasis of freedom and Liberty.  Our Christian heritage paved the way for freedom to flourish..and flourish it did!

 

In contrast, as Marxist Communism took over Russia, Lunacharsky, the first Soviet commissar for education, proclaimed: "We hate Christianity and Christians; even the best of them must be looked upon as our worst enemies. They preach love of our neighbors and mercy, which is contrary to our principles. Down with the love of our neighbor; what we want is hatred" (emphasis added). 

 

Today, it's easy to recognize that same hate filled vitriol spewing from the mouths of wanna be Marxist thugs who dot the landscape in America.  They  describe themselves as Marxist, Socialist, or Progressive.. terms that are virtually interchangeable.  An example is William (Bill) Ayers..  http://commieblaster.com/bill_ayers/index.html

Report: Oregon graduation rates holding U.S. back

Report: Oregon graduation rates holding U.S. back | EconomicFactors | Scoop.it
A comprehensive U.S. report showed that Oregon not only has the worst graduation rates in the nation, but it's holding the country back from achieving its graduation rate goals.
Bill McKee's insight:

Money is not the problem.  Oregon is "led" by people with an ideological drive that compels "curriculum" that first and foremost imposes a hard left political agenda.. whether it's history, english, writing or even math!  There is a LOT of lip service about "quality education", but in truth, the progressive, leftist politics is never left to chance.  It's consistently applied to all classroom "studies" in ways that sometimes are appallingly disingenuous.  Makes Detroit schools appear to models of higher learning!

 

Oregonians are trying hard to emulate the fictional movie "1984" in almost every respect.

Retail apocalypse: Major chains closing 6,000 stores | EconomicFactors | Scoop.it
A Free Press For A Free People Since 1997
Bill McKee's insight:

Obama policies put screws to job creators in response to avalanche of new taxes, new regulations, new mandates, compulsory "minimimum" wages... and more.   

 

State run economies "equal things out.  Everyone becomes an enemy of the State.  Serfdom rules.  An elite, ruling class reigns superior over the masses, insisting they lower their standard of living while financing their own special perks.

 

Americans have taken their liberty for granted and now will pay the price for having given it up to totalitarians at an ever increasing pace.  The average American is a shadow of former generations.  Doesn't bode well for the future.

Feds Panic on Mass Common Core Test Refusals, Threaten Reprisals

Feds Panic on Mass Common Core Test Refusals, Threaten Reprisals | EconomicFactors | Scoop.it
Public resistance to Common Core is exploding across America, and officials are not happy about it. by Alex Newman
Bill McKee's insight:

Massive central government resorts to compulsion when their argument fails.  Common Core is another example supporting the notion that Central planning and control is not just enormously expensive and slow to react to changing reality, it attracts a type of " " " I know what's best for you" crowd of people who, when feeling their ideas and plans are losing the argument, resort to compulsion and abuse of power.  

 

Local CONTROL of education puts school and teacher accountability in the hands of Parents.. heaven forbid!  Local CONTROL offers far better outcomes for students than our current system.. which is and has been a well recognized failure.  Common Core is simply a money making scheme primarily.. for unions, large publishing houses, testing "services", and therefore the source of immense lobbying by special interests that give lip service to the actual delivery of quality education. 

 

It's time to refocus on Local control of education and restore our once highly regarded system of education.. and take it away from the clutches of those who have spent decades trying to turn our schools into money machines for unions, politicians, and government bureaucrats.

Even more Clinton influence peddling .. Foreign countries and individuals playing fast and loose gaining influence from Clinton circle of insiders, and Clinton's receive "donations" to their "charity" which pays out 6% of the amount received from "donations" to actual charity work.  The rest is used to line the pockets of staff and buy more influence..

Bill McKee's insight:

Crime?  Obama would has claimed that the cause of Islamic terror is a "lack of jobs".  Really?   Somehow he wants us to believe people who commit terror in every imaginable way do so because they lack "economic opportunity" .    Islam was, is, and will continue to be, a continual terror machine.  From it's very beginning, it was an ideology designed for ruthless aggression against neighbors to pillage their people  by killing many and enslaving the rest.  Then they steal their property.  

 

This ISIS terror organization is not new, only the most recent evolution.

Bill McKee's insight:

Government corruption on the West Coast shows that Porgressive ideology drives everything.  Dems have controlled Oregon for decades and this session we will pay dearly for it.  Gazing to the North into Washington, Progressives there show the same proclivity to lie, cheat and steal.  What's truly amazing .. the feds needed to bring charges against this notorious thief... the democratic controlled "justice" system in Washington just didn't find anything wrong with the way this fellow cheated citizens for years... The State Auditor disgraced his State, his family, his office and those who entrusted him with their business.  Not sure if this is considered a "bad mark" among democrats, ... but I suppose it does.. because he got caught.

Howard Dean Crashes And Burns Defending Hillary on "Morning Joe"; Accuses New York Times Of "Substituting Judgement For News"

Howard Dean Crashes And Burns Defending Hillary on "Morning Joe"; Accuses New York Times Of "Substituting Judgement For News" | EconomicFactors | Scoop.it

Former DNC head Howard Dean defends Hillary Clinton from corruption reports published in the New York Times by saying "the author is getting money from donors." The MSNBC panelists are shocked at the transparency of his hypocrisy.

HOWARD DEAN: This is the problem here.

I'm not going to accuse the New York Times of having bias here -- they do, everyone has bias, but the author is getting money from donors -- big donors who support Ted Cruz. That has a problem.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: You're going after the author?

HOWARD DEAN: That's a fact.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: That has nothing to do with it. The NYT, Newsweek, other publications are following these leads. You're trying to trace it back to an author.

You're actually going to have to condemn the New York Times, Joe Becker and Mike McIntyre, they're the ones that wrote this story.

HOWARD DEAN: I use the New York Times as an example in journalism classes because by the fifth paragraph in any political story.

You can probably find one right here, whatever the political story is, by the fifth paragraph they're substituting their judgement for news.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Howard, I consider you a good friend of mine, I think it is unbecoming for you to come on this show, and to just reflexively attack everybody that tries to bring up any information that goes against what you want people to hear...

HOWARD DEAN: There are plenty of people who write for the New York Times and every other paper that I think are incredibly sloppy, and I could name a lot of them. Including some well-known correspondents on various networks, some of whom carried this story who basically put up stuff--

I have been threatened by reporters, they were going to run a story that they knew wasn't true and I knew wasn't true unless they produced evidence to prove it wasn't true. That's what you learn when you run for president...

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Do you think that Bill Clinton should take $500,000 from a speech in Moscow while all these other dealings are going on? And While Hillary Clinton is Sec. of State?

HOWARD DEAN: I don't know the circumstances. I have no idea.

Why I once liked Common Core but changed my mind — one principal’s view | EconomicFactors | Scoop.it
The first of a series of letters between principals on opposing sides of the Core: " I am truly worried that we may lose an entire generation of students.'
Bill McKee's insight:

Government indoctrination in America.. "public schools".. attract a LOT of interest by corporations who generate enormous earnings by selling books, courses, and assorted "testing" programs.. among a host of other services.  Common Core is a magnet for money.. but also for foreign countries who "buy" their way in.  History has been revised in an attempt to discredit America's rich history and make preposterous claims by Muslim interests (Saudi Arabia has bought it's way not only into Universities, but into common core as well).  

 

Common Core is a cruel and empty headed attempt at a lot of things, but mostly it's a money generator for special interests and a tool for political influence.
