Italy: Green Energy Tied To Sicilian Superboss
Friends of Ours ^ | 12/07/12 | Friends of Ours

Posted on 12/07/2012 5:47:03 AM PST by AtlasStalled

Italian authorities have arrested six individuals and seized assets worth 10 million euros or $13 million in connection with "a probe into suspected Mafia infiltration of renewable-energy facilities in western Sicily whose proceeds are believed to have gone to fugitive Cosa Nostra head Matteo Messina Denaro" as reported by ANSA.

The solar plants and wind farms are ubiquitous throughout southern Italy, and the Sicilian Mafia has exploited many of these green companies both to siphon government subsidies and launder dirty money as reported by Stephan Faris for Time.

Sicilian-mobster-turned-supergrass Antonio Birrittella claims "the modern Mafia has reinvented itself as a 'white collar' organization," and become involved with "the development of wind farms and renewable energy . . . through a combination of shell companies and the infiltration of regional bodies which distribute the subsidies"as reported by Gail Champion for BBC News.

That’s funny, our green energy policies also come from our “super bosses” as well. There’s something funny about the whole scam.

These people aren’t white collar at all ~ they’d kill you for looking their way. They have an interest in having Italy’s government continue to ‘invest’ in windmills ~ with no competition.

Remember Soros was the money behind Wikileaks, which was tied to Mossad and the CIA? Extortion galore. That's how they keep politicians who weren't already in their pockets, in line.

The point is that this “green energy” con job is universal . They even had Al Gore as their great evangelizer. This orgazined con job is multinational and our media darlings and politicos are either for sale or being extorted. Former US Vice President Al Gore could not have come cheap. This is also how politicians launder our tax dollars. How many billions in Tarp funds went to quickly defunct “energy companies?”

Same old mob ~ no doubt the Algore was part of the Unione Corse ~ they’ve been around since Spain and France fiddled with New Orleans. Look for the name “MURRAY” in the genealogies!

It’s what we’d call a “rat”. Weird expression.

The Mafia LOVES the EU. A good % of the money spent to “help poor Southern Italy” (read Sicily) was a windfall for gangsters.
