A123 Systems, a Massachusetts-based battery manufacturer, received $249 million from Barack Obama’s failed stimulus program.  At the time they received the money, A123 pledged that the nearly quarter-billion-dollar stimulus money would lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs.

Said company President David Vieau when the company opened a factory in Livonia, Mich., in 2010:

“Over the next several years, we expect to create thousands of jobs in Greater Detroit and plan to continue our expansion in the area as we do our part in helping the U.S. emerge as a global leader in the production of advanced lithium ion batteries.”

Like all stimulus recipients, reporting job creation statistics to Recovery.gov was required of A123 Systems.

Recent disclosures reveal only a few hundred positions were actually created before A123 Systems joined with $500 billion failure Solyndra to become part of the growing list of green energy companies which ended in bankruptcy after receiving federal stimulus funds.

The stimulus tracking database’ latest jobs report shows a mere seven positions were created by grant money from April 2012 to June 2012.  When all the reports are combined, since 2009, a grand total of 408 new positions have been created with the stimulus dollars.

 That works out to more than $300,000 per job.

How many families suffering the effects of the $50 billion dollar blow delivered by “super storm” Sandy could use some of that money?

Solyndra alone wasted ten times the amount of the estimated repair costs.

Four million people are still without power.

Speaking of power, all the people who have been living without heat or lighting for the past few days have been given a preview of how everyone in the United States will live if Obama is reelected and continues his disastrous energy policies.

The choice could not be simpler.

Sentence America to a new dark age (literally) or elect a new President Romney, who will develop domestic energy.  Not only will the U.S. be freed from the hostile grip of OPEC, the jobs created by development of domestic American energy cannot possibly be shipped overseas.

The Saudis are behind this whole thing . It's an issue between them and Iran about Iran being Shia islam ( less fundamentalist apostates ) being in a position of strength to resist the Sunni ( very fundamentalist wahabbi / al qauida / jihadist ) hardliners that view Shia muslims as apostates and are preventing the Saudis from taking over the world with an islamic caliphate . The Sauds are fiendishly clever and devious beyond belief . The Saudi money has supported oh'BUMMER all his life through college at Columbia and Harvard since he was connected through Muhammed Hassan Chandu / Chandoo  during the trip to pakistan which an American citizen wouildn;t have been able to visit because of the restriction of Americans going to Pakistan . Chandoo and oh'BUmmer were homosexual lovers when oh'BUMMER lived with him at Chandoo's home in Eagle Rock , CA . oh'Bummer was connected to the Saudi money pipeline by Chandoo and is recieving money to this day . Probably through muslim couriers that "visit " the whitehouse in a never ending stream . oh'BUMMER is OWNED BY THE SAUDIS he is their puppet not Soros's . All this blood and treasure lost in the middle east is for the benefit of the Saudis in the establishment of muslim brotherhood run governments all over the middle east . The Saudis have infiltrated SHARIA into our government intelligence services , into our educational system from elementary school through college and university curriculums , publishers of texbooks . WAKE UP AMERICA AND BECOME ENERGY INDEPENDENT . We must remove all islamic influence from american soil . If oh'BUMMER is re elected American will have made their LAST BIG ASSED MISTAKE . Don;t forget how oh'BUMMER bowed and kissed the hand of the Saudi king . He's going to be taken care of for the rest of his life .

ALERT ALERT

“Stop Mass Hysteria”  Michael Savage On Current Media Frenzy: It’s Like A Virus, An Epidemic… It Will Die Of Its Own Oxygen Deprivation 

The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft interviewed Dr. Michael Savage on his latest book “Stop Mass Hysteria” this weekend.

“Stop Mass Hysteria” COULD NOT come at a better time. And our discussion with Dr. Savage on this subject was timely to say the least.

Dr. Savage discussed the history of mass hysteria in America from the Salem witch trials to the Trump-Russial collusion witch hunt.

Michael Savage also shared his thoughts on the mass hysteria surrounding the Brett Kavananaugh confirmation hearings.

Dr. Michael Savage: Let me just say starting from the beginning that there is a huge difference between mass hysteria and justified concern. And this is something we have to understand. There are imagined threats and then there is real danger as we all know. And this is an imagined threat – That Kavanaugh poses a threat to all women on the planet that he’s a mad rapist. That he will be on the Supreme Court running around and making the climate of rape more acceptable. This is the greatest example of mass hysteria since the Trump derangement syndrome. And it is a continuation of course, of the hatred of Trump and their hatred for those of us who supported Donald Trump, and Donald Trump’s agenda more than Donald Trump. It’s really not about Donald Trump it’s about the agenda which is largely based on modern nationalism that I offered for many, many years.

Dr. Savage is truly brilliant. He publishes a book on mass hyteria and the the Kavanaugh confirmation comes along.

Dr. Savage goes on to say the number one greatest threat facing America today is radical Islam. “For the last 1,400 years radical Islam has been at war with the world. This is not Islamophobia as the mainstream media would have you believe. It is history.”

Michael Savage took some time to bash CNN in his chapter titled “From Salem to CNN” where he compares the two asking, “They’re not too different are they?”

Michael went on to describe the real “war on women” is the radical feminists who are actually debasing feminists and debasing women across America with false accusations, or exaggerated accusations.

Dr. Savage talked about the danger of mass hysteria, “It’s like a virus. As a trained epidemiologist it’s really like an epidemic. It’s almost a medical situation, this madness is very similar to an epidemic that continues to spread though a population without discriminating who it attacks. That’s the point. And so in stopping mass hysteria I try to bring real history to the discussion rather than straight polemics.”

Near the end of the interview I asked Michael about what will eventually the end of mass hysteria. Michael offered this, “We have to believe at the end reason will trump hysteria. We have to believe. I believe this mania we are living through will die of its own oxygen deprivation.”

Let’s hope Dr. Savage is right. He usually is. God help us.
