I believe we now have a criminal in the White House. That anyone around Obama, including himself, would think that giving taxpayer dollars to a company that the President has investments in was a good idea, shows just how absolutely corrupt they are. Vice President Cheney dissolved all of his relationships with Halliburton and still, year after year, the left pounded him on his relationship with them, what will the left say about this? Likely, nothing. Disgusting.
The new Obama scandal is huge, but it’s also nice and simple.
LightSquared is a satellite broadband company, based out of Virginia. It received heavy investments from a fund run by a big-money Democrat donor named Phillip Falcone, a billionaire who “became wealthy shorting subprime debt,” according to The Daily Beast.
The company’s biggest investors, according to the Huffington Post, include Obama donor and current U.S. ambassador to South Africa Donald Gips, Obama friend and investment manager George Haywood… and Barack Obama himself, who was “an early investor and came to the presidency a firm believer in expanding broadband.”
LightSquared has been trying to get a big 4G network going, but there’s a problem: its technology appears to interfere with military, aviation, and weather tracking satellite systems. The company’s technicians have been working on the problem, and in fact on Thursday they announced that they’ve got a solution, although rigorous testing will still have to be performed.
The Pentagon has some serious concerns about LightSquared. Four-star General William Shelton of the U.S. Space Command was set to testify before a House committee on August 3rd, but he told investigators last week that the White House pressured him to change his testimony to favor that big Democrat donor.
This is so wrong, on so many levels, up to and including attempting to get the General to LIE to House and Senate members. I knew Obama was bringing Chicago style politics and ways of doing business to Washington but I thought he would wait until the second term. We need to make sure Obama is a one-term president, and if there is criminality involved, then this must be pursued to get the truth out.
