Another Green Weenie Obomba Company Goes Bust …

Another Obama Green Energy Co. Goes Bust!

ECOtality Added To Obama’s Loser List

KPHO reports the following:

ECOtality, the electric car-charging company that operates more than 600 charging stations in Arizona, may be about to close its door.

Last month, the company disclosed a myriad of problems with the SEC. In that filing, ECOtality released the following statement:

“Although the Company is currently exploring options for a restructuring or sale of the entire business and/or assets of the Company, the Company may need to file a petition commencing a case under the United States Bankruptcy Code as part of any such process or otherwise in the very near future.”

ECOTality was heavily involved in the federal government’s EV Project, sponsored by the Department of Energy. The goal of that program was to install charging stations and electric vehicle infrastructure throughout the United States.

In all, ECOtality says it installed more than 13,000 home and commercial charging units. The EV Project reimbursed the company for many of those installations, paying out nearly $100 million.

In the filing, the ECOtality says the DOE stopped making payments to the company. It also claims that its charging stations are not making a profit.

Additionally, the report says ECOtality has had trouble finding additional funding. It has also had to pay $855,000 in back wages and damages to settle Labor Department claims that it violated the Fair Labor Standards Act and Davis-Bacon Act.

A spokesperson for the company says no final decision on its future has been decided, but that could happen in the next 10 days.

ECOtality was based in Arizona until 2010, and is now headquartered in San Francisco.

Giant Deer Gets A Whack

August 22, 2013

Take the Quiz …

A) There’s a major car crash, where the dump truck is flattened by a semi

B) Someone runs out while the truck is at a stop sign and hops on the deer and rides it off

C) Other

So, if you said “other” or that the giant deer in the back of the dump truck would ram into a concrete overpass, you’d be correct.

By the way, if you’ve ever wondered why so many of these videos come out of Russia, it’s because insurance fraud is so high in the country that people are left with little option but to record everything.


AZ DEM GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE DARKENS SKIN FOR COMMERCIALS TO APPEAR HISPANIC

August 6, 2013

More Democrat fakery … This is almost funny. Coloring your skin, Hollywood makeup.

Democrats the changelings. Is it real or is it Memorex?  We know they have to hide their agenda, they will never tell you the truth about what they really want to do to you, else you wouldn’t vote for them. So a little skin coloring never hurt anyone, right? When white is just too white.

Pictures and full story at link, see for yourself …

Brietbart news has the story:

Phoenix businessowner Fred DuVal is not Hispanic. But he apparently has been coloring his skin darker in his commercials for his gubernatorial candidacy in order to appear Hispanic. DuVal says the whole situation is just a big joke, since his Republican opposition calls him “The World’s Most Uninteresting Man;” he says he was trying to make himself look like the actor from the Dos Equis commercials.

Make me Latino, I want to look like the voters I am trying to fool snare.

If You Think Arizona Lost The Election Law Case, Scalia Pulls a Fast one

June 29, 2013

You should read this article for in PJ Media. If you don’t know who J. Christian Adams is, you should. Adams’ article; it’s succinct, elegant, and everyone who cares about election integrity should read it.

Adams posted his article on the very day (June 17) that the Supreme Court delivered its ruling on the case concerning Arizona’s proof-of-citizenship requirement for voter registrants:

After re-reading the case and reflecting a bit more, it’s clear that the decision was a disaster for the Left and their victory cackles are hollow — and they know it.

Worse, conservative dooms-dayers who have never litigated a single National Voter Registration Act case have taken to the airwaves, describing the case as a disaster which invites illegal-alien voting. [Link added.]

In the last year, I’ve litigated five NVRA cases and worked on the preemption issues for years, and there is more to cheer in today’s opinion than there is to bemoan. Those complaining about the opinion don’t understand what the Left’s goal was in this case: total federal preemption. On that score, Justice Scalia foiled them…

Another terrific article that also came out on the day of the Court’s decision was Hans A. von Spakovsky’s “Voting by Noncitizens in Arizona” at National Review. Spakovsky’s is a fine companion piece to Adams’.

WE WIN!!! The left’s goal was total federal preemption of State Law, in that case, they lost, federal election law is mostly irrelevant. Start your adventure with actually reading Justice Scalia’s “Opinion of the Court” ruling. You see you need understand how legal stuff is written. The left was outfoxed, and so were we.


Secure The Border: Drug-filled Mexican airplanes land nightly along southern border…..

June 28, 2013

 

In one California border town, at least four drug-laden, ultralight airplanes from Mexico land each night on U.S. soil, dropping off hundreds of pounds of narcotics then flying back to Mexico, all the while eluding a $100 million detection system funded by American taxpayers.

The U.S. Border Patrol’s inability to find and catch these planes, operated by the Mexican drug cartels and sometimes piloted by armed dealers, is among the emerging border security threats a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing will tackle on Thursday.

The panel wants to highlight growing border security problems as Congress debates immigration reform legislation that includes provisions aimed at bolstering border security…

[snip] Chaffetz learned about the deluge of the home-built drug planes crossing the into the United States during a visit earlier this year to border areas in Arizona and Mexico.

Border patrol agents told him that despite the hefty price tag paid for the sensors, they are not helping agents stop the ultralights. The planes land in border towns all along the Mexican border, including El Centro, California, where multiple air drops happen every night.

Meanwhile drones are flying over Americans, doing what no one will say.


DOJ Inspector General To Investigate ATF Sting Operation In Milwaukee

May 23, 2013

ATF Sting — They got stung …

An ATF sting operation called Operation Fearless will now be investigated by the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General. This operation in Milwaukee featured a storefront sting effort that went horribly bad. They had merchandise stolen, left behind confidential documents, damaged the building that they were renting, and had an ATF-owned automatic weapon stolen which is still missing.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel investigated it and has a whole series on it.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz wrote to two members of Congress that the Milwaukee sting appeared to raise “significant management issues relating to the oversight and management” of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The issues, the letter said, were especially troubling coming after the agency had promised reforms.

A bipartisan group of congressional members demanded answers after a Journal Sentinel investigation of the sting that revealed an agent’s guns, including a machine gun, were stolen, the ATF storefront was ripped off of $40,000 in merchandise and agents allowed an armed felon who threatened to shoot someone to leave the store. At least four of the wrong people were arrested and three of them charged, including a man who was in prison. The ATF machine gun is still missing.

The ATF promised better oversight in the wake of Fast and Furious, where agents in Arizona encouraged the sale of more than 2,000 firearms to gun traffickers but lost track of the weapons. Many ended up at crime scenes in Mexico and at the scene where a U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed. The inspector general’s report on Fast and Furious was sharply critical of the ATF and the U.S. attorney’s office, finding “a significant lack of oversight” by both agencies.

Horowitz’s letter on the Milwaukee operation, called “Operation Fearless,” said the ATF’s internal report on the incident addressed the management issues that concerned him. But Horowitz said his office would still examine the Milwaukee sting, along with other recent ATF operations.

He said he would determine if the Justice Department and the ATF have responded appropriately to the inspector general’s recommendations after Operation Fast and Furious. He gave no timetable for when the review would be done.

You have to wonder if ATF really has become the gang that can’t shoot straight.
