House investigators said they “smelled at rat” from the beginning of this green jobs boondoggle, and now have uncovered evidence that White House officials became personally involved in an Energy Department review of the ill-fated $535 million loan guarantee to the California solar company Solyndra.

More from Jim Hoft at Big Government:
Top Obama bundler George Kaiser made multiple visits to the White House in the months before the company was granted a $535 million loan from the government.
iWatch News reported, via Free Republic:
The i Watch News investigation confirmed that at least 18 other bundlers have ties to businesses poised to profit from the president’s political agenda, through stimulus money, government contracts, or other spending to promote clean energy technology or green development.
Oklahoma billionaire investor George Kaiser is one. A longtime Democratic donor, he is a big financial backer of a company that in March of 2009 won a $535 million loan guarantee  from DOE for a solar plant in Silicon Valley. He had multiple visits to the White House in the months before he was awarded the contract. Kaiser has not responded to interview requests from iWatch News.
Darrell Issa has to be the busiest man in Washington, right now, thanks to all the Obamacrat corruption.
This is a gorgeous choral arrangement of one of my favorite hymns, (I know I say that every week, but seriously – it’s in my top five.) Lovely use of tin whistle in this version of I Heard The Voice of Jesus Say, written by Horatius Bonar in 1846:
Another beautiful version, here.
While pastor of a Presbyterian church in Kelso, Scotland, Horatius Bonar (1808 – 1889), known as the Prince of Scottish Hymn Writers with more then 600 hymns, wrote this text in 1846, which he intended to be a children’s hymn. Entitled The Voice from Galilee, the text was published in Bonar’s Hymns Original and Selected (1846) with a reference to John 1: 16 (“From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another”). The truth of the biblical imagery and the spiritual depth of the personal responses to Christ captured in this text have made this a hymn much loved by children and adults. It is often considered to be among the finest of Bonar’s many hymn texts.
Each of the three stanzas has two parts: the first half quotes Jesus’ words, and the second half testifies to the personal experience of responding to Christ. The entire text invites us to accept what Jesus offers: rest from our burdens (st. 1), living water to quench our thirst (st. 2), and light for life’s journey (st. 3).
