Solazyme: Another Profile in Green Crony Capitalist Corruption

Don’t blame the federal government for vets dying on VA waiting lists. There just aren’t the resources to provide proper healthcare — not when the military is paying $149 per gallon for politically correct alternative fuel:

The CEO and Board of Directors of Solazyme, a company the military paid $149 per gallon for “alternative” fuel, have donated more than $300,000 to Democratic candidates and committees, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.

Recipients of significant donations included the Obama Victory Fund and the Democratic National Committee. Additionally, Solazyme donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

The $149/gallon fuel was made out of algae oil. It cost 44 times what the Defense Department was paying for regular fuel.

Speaking of extravagant waste,

The group also received a $21 million stimulus grant from Department of Energy in 2009.

“Based in South San Francisco, Solazyme’s mission is to improve our lives and our planet by producing sustainable, high-performance oils and ingredients derived from microalgae,” the company states.

Their actual mission is to improve their own lives at taxpayer expense by greasing palms within the Beltway and then going through the moronic charade of producing inefficient but environmentally correct energy.

Three members of Solazyme’s Board of Directors have donated hundreds of thousands to Dems, which include more than $50,000 in donations that benefited President Obama.

Solazyme got another big contract to supply the Navy with biofuel in 2011.

This naked corruption is what puts the green in green energy.

Knows how the game is played.
