With Energy Secretary Steven Chu set to testify Thursday before the House Energy and Commerce Committee about the government’s $573 million loan to failed solar panel maker Solyndra, an explosive new list of energy loan amounts to President Obama’s top fundraisers, bundlers, and supporters has been released by Breitbart editor Peter Schweizer, author of Throw Them All Out.

As the list reveals, 80 percent of all $20.5 billion in Department of Energy loans went to President Obama’s top donors. Furthermore, some of those dwarf in size those given to Obama bundler George Kaiser, owner of the now defunct Solyndra.

The list—which features the likes of Google owners Larry Page and Sergey Brinn, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Ted Turner, John Doerr, and Al Gore—raises new questions about the procedures used to administer the now-controversial DOE loans.

It seemed to start with little things: not reporting that Obama was a smoker, refusing to mention his middle name, refusing to mention he grew up in a Muslim country, refusing to report his campaign promise of skyrocketing electricity prices, then they attacked Joe the Plumber for daring to ask Obama a question that unmasked their chosen candidate as a Marxist, bought a house from crooked realtor and slum lord Tony Rezko in a sweetheart deal, they downplayed his 20-year membership in a hate church, poo-poohed his friendship and working relationship with terrorist Bill Ayers and his terrorist wife. The Obamas even spoke against the American dream, calling it “Middle-Classism”.

He was never vetted during the campaign, the media even chose not to report certain things and even attacked and maligned anyone who dared question him. (remember Joe the Plumber) Since getting in the White House Obama has literally given away a trillion dollars to friends and allies (so-called “stimulus”) and expects to get a billion dollars back for his campaign coffers.

This is probably the biggest crime in history and its apparently not newsworthy. His administration has given guns to Mexican druglords, people have literally died-including Americans from those very guns. His “Obamacare” threatens to bankrupt the country while rationing out less but ever-more expensive healthcare to the people. He decries those who “don’t pay their fair share” while his top corporate allies, like GE, pay no taxes at all. He decries CEO’s “excessive salaries” while ignoring the salaries of top union officials, and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac who walked away with millions as those institutions crashed to the ground and demanded bailouts.

But hey if a Republican pauses for 20 seconds to think about a question from a hostile reporter, that must be condemned as the end of his campaign. Yes, what media bias?

Some of the projects LPO supports include:
The nation’s first nuclear power plant in the last three decades. (Vogtle)

The world’s largest wind farm. (Shepherds Flat)

One of the nation’s first cellulosic ethanol power plants. (POET’s Project Liberty)

The largest rooftop solar project in our nation’s history. (Project Amp)

Several of the world’s largest photovoltaic generation facilities when completed, including the largest in the world. (Agua Caliente)

Several of the world’s largest concentrating solar power (CSP) generation facilities that will triple the nation’s currently-installed CSP capacity.

Solar manufacturing plants that will help reduce the cost of solar power, one by up to up to 50% per panel. (1366, Solopower)

The nation’s first purpose-built wheelchair-accessible vehicle that will run on compressed natural gas. (VPG)
