UNO and CC3000 shield, Initializes then doesn't

I have and UNO and a CC3000 shield. I load my MQTT project based on the MQTT example from Adafruit and it hangs on "Init the CC3000".

So, I think, Go Simple. I load the MQTT example. Same thing!

Even simpler, I load the build test. THAT WORKS. What is going on?

There is something wrong with the software you didn't post or the hardware that you did not describe or provide a schematic for.

At this point I cannot get the buildtest example to work. As I said, I have an UNO with a cc3000 shield. I use a 9V, 1A power supply.
