McAuliffe’s GreenTech company
bypassed state law in acquiring
land, failed to produce a single car

Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/1/2013 5:42:59 AM

Virginia candidate for governor Terry McAuliffe bypassed state law to acquire land for his “green car” factory in Mississippi and invited President Obama to attend an event for the company that subsequently bogged down in a wide-ranging scandal. Documents obtained by Cause of Action through a Freedom of Information Act request indicate Obama considered attending the rollout of GreenTech Automotive’s first electric car. McAuliffe was the chairman of the company, but quietly resigned in December 2012. GreenTech is currently embroiled in a scandal over the company’s EB-5 visas.

I blame the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy. I blame George W. Bush. I blame the 1%. I blame white Hispanics. I blame Rush Limbaugh.

There, MSM - your talking points on a silver platter.

The McAuliffe scandal is a lot worse than the accusations being thrown around.This guy is as inherently corrupt to the core person and the fact he´s a serious candidate for governor shows the further erosion of people in this country.If this guy was a dog catcher,he would kill them and sell the meat to overseas markets.

Va.,once a solidly conservative state has little by little been cop-opted by liberal sub groups whose votes add up at the end of the day. S.Va is too sparsely populated to push back against all the illegals,muslims and government workers in the immediate DC suburbs.

Politicians aren´t even being evaluated on character anymore as we see in the NY races. Obviously NY has always been a bastion of liberalism,still has a chance to elect Spitze rat the very least.

But when you have an otherwise successful governor like McDonnell taking gifts and making shady loans,it only gives cover to crooks like McAuliffe,who past associations with the Clintons ought to be enough itself to knock hm out of the race.

Like Rush was alluding to yesterday,the left wing media isn´t content pushing the left wing agenda,they get st as much pleasure out of destroying conservatives or at least characterizing them as being out of the loop in modern society.

The republicans actually do need to modernize but not by adopting left wing policies but there isn´t a big enough,creative brain in the party to pull it off.

Karl Rove was once a highly respected right wing operative but he´s done a couple things to help destroy the party. The first was pushing privatization of SS after Bush won in´04 and had substantial political capital to use. Then later on he pushed Bush on immigration and the whole party took a whack.

My state too. Send money to Cuccinelli if you can.

Also, remember that it was McAuliffe who was in charge of renting out the Lincoln Bedroom for Bubba. He also ran Global Crossing into the ground causing 10,000 people to lose their jobs and he strolled away with a cool $8 million in his pocket. He´s the poster boy for slimey behavior.

From manicures to motorcycles, four Little League crooks in three states used team funds for more than baseballs, bats and celebratory ice cream cones. Thanks to community kindness, it’s still game-on this spring. With the start of a new baseball season comes a disheartening stat that makes you worry not just for the national pastime, but for the nation itself: In less than a year, four little league presidents have been charged with looting their organization´s treasury. The thefts left three of the leagues in such sorry financial shape that it seemed the kids might not be able to play this spring. But nobler

Eco-extremists can often be heard expressing their frustration that more people don’t take their climate change alarm-mongering more seriously. I realize this is just one guy, but… that’s partially because of moments like this. So brilliant. Labour peer Viscount Simon, 73, raised concerns about the “smelly emissions” resulting from the UK’s unusually high consumption of baked beans. He put energy and climate change minister Baroness Verma on the spot during the government’s daily question session in the upper chamber. … Lord Simon said: “In a programme some months ago on the BBC it was stated that this country has the

From 1964 to 1968, close to 34,000 Americans died in South Vietnam. We will never know how many Vietnamese women, men, and children perished during those years, but the total, according to most estimates, was at least one million. Among the dead were tens of thousands of civilians—blown apart by explosives dropped from planes, burned to death by napalm, or gunned down by U.S. troops whose commanders told them that, in a village considered loyal to the Vietcong, they should “kill anything that we see and anything that moved.” Their commander-in-chief was Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Ukraine: Special Forces Sent to Eastern City

KIEV, Ukraine -- Ukrainian special forces were deployed Sunday to an eastern city where armed pro-Russia men seized a police headquarters and the Security Service office, the interior minister said. Arsen Avakov wrote on his Facebook page that the "separatists" who seized the buildings in Slovyansk had opened fire on the approaching troops. This claim could not immediately be confirmed. The unrest in Slovyansk and the nearby major industrial city Donetsk were the latest shows of spiraling anger in eastern Ukraine, which has a large Russian-speaking population and was also the support base for Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president ousted in February

It was the best of hugs; it was the worst of hugs. Or so the description might have gone had Charlie Crist labored a bit longer on his new memoir, in which the erstwhile governor of Florida—who is now campaigning for the job again—relives the fateful embrace with President Obama that he claims sunk his political fortunes in 2009. Rather than try for style, Crist renders the moment with the racy, staccato gusto that one might expect from a pulpy romance. “We shook hands. The new president leaned forward and gave me a hug. Reach. Pull. Release.” A hundred or

A FedEx truck crossed a freeway and slammed head-on into a bus carrying students in Northern California, killing 10 people, authorities said Friday. The collision Thursday evening killed both drivers, five students and three chaperones, said Lt. Bill Carpenter with the California Highway Patrol. At least 34 people were taken to local hospitals, authorities said. The bus was taking students from various Los Angeles-area schools to visit Humboldt State University in Arcata. The collision occurred in Orland, about 100 miles north of Sacramento. In a statement, the university said it got word of the crash but was working to find out more details. "Our thoughts

Give this retching, crying, sniveling, vomiting degenerate an Academy Award! I don’t know how much more I can take of Oscar Pistorius’ rubbish. A prosecutor on Wednesday ordered the athlete known as the “Blade Runner’’ for the carbon-fiber blades that replace his lower legs — which he’s not afraid to use as props to score pity — to “take responsibility’’ for slaughtering his beautiful girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day, 2013. He told Pistorius, 27, to look at a picture of the blood- and human-tissue-covered head of the model and TV personality, who died, like a caged animal, at age 29 inside

Rolling Stone´s Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Rolling Stone’s Constitution cover is in need of an amendment. The cover of the storied rock magazine’s latest issue features a naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus with a faulty U.S. Constitution inked on her back. Just above her derriere sits the signature of one of the nation’s most prominent Founding Fathers, John Hancock. There’s only one problem, however: John Hancock didn’t sign the U.S. Constitution. Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress, actually signed the Declaration of Independence. His autograph on that document is so stylish and large, in fact, that it inspired the use of his full name as a synonym for

RICHGROVE, Calif. — In March 2013, a man with brooding, mahogany eyes and a walrus mustache traveled from his home in California to visit relatives in Alabama. The trip did not end well. When a business acquaintance insulted Jose Manuel Martinez´s daughter, Martinez put two bullets in the man´s head, officials said. It was a matter "of family honor," Errek Jett, an Alabama prosecutor, said Wednesday. But it was not, it turned out, the first time he had killed — far from it, authorities believe. Martinez, 51, was charged Tuesday with killing nine men mostly in California´s Central Valley, part of a

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C.

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.
