    While America struggles to buy groceries, President Joe Biden has a green slush fund worth billions of dollars, and he’s not afraid to use it.Recent revelations uncovered that the CEO and lobbyists of Rivian, an electric vehicle manufacturer, held a quiet meeting at the White House with Biden’s Climate Czar, John Podesta. That’s right, the same John Podesta who served as chairman of Hillary Clinton’s ill-fated 2016 presidential campaign before being pulled from the ranks of profitable green consulting to oversee distribution of $369 billion from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Biden selected a political operative with green company ties...

    The Biden administration will announce Friday it is ready to distribute $20 billion in taxpayer dollars for “clean energy projects” across the nation. These include – but are not limited to – building more electric vehicle charging stations, residential heat pumps, and community cooling centers, all as the Biden administration continues its drive to push Americans away from relying on fossil fuels. Two programs from a federal “green bank” worth more than $14 billion and $6 billion between them will offer competitive grants to states, tribes and nonprofits to invest in clean energy projects, with a focus on disadvantaged communities,...
  • PPP fraud is ‘worst in history’: $200B stolen and blown on Lamborghinis, beach houses and bling

    Tens of thousands of fraudsters splurged on Lamborghinis, vacation homes, private jet flights and Cartier jewelry by fleecing the PPP loan system in a $200 billion heist — and did it because the COVID loan scheme was so easy to milk. Approximately $1.2 trillion was rushed through Congress in 2020 and 2021 in COVID bailout cash for businesses and spent on the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program (EIDLP) and the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) schemes. But a new report from the Small Business Administration’s Office of Inspector General reveals an astonishing 17% vanished to fraud — an estimated total of...

    In Paris, the Summit for a New Global Financing Pact has just concluded. The two-day Paris meeting attracted a host of important globalists and heads of state, including Biden’s climate envoy John Kerry, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholtz, Brazilian president Lula da Silva, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, World Bank head Ajay Banga, IMF President Kristalina Georgieva, and UN Secretary-General António Guterres. These and many other globalist movers and shakers headlined the latest in a series of international climate confabs whose purpose is compensating poor countries for alleged climate-related injustices.
  • House Committee to investigate former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s grab of $200 million park maintenance slush fund

    American Thinker ^ | 04/24/2023 | Thomas Lifson
    According to the House Committee on Natural Resources, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi personally directed that $200 million appropriated for deferred maintenance projects in national parks be spent entirely on one park in her district. That park, The Presidio of San Francisco, happens to be near her mansion there (the one where her husband Paul was attacked – a story that has disappeared from the media when it became apparent the suspected assailant was a lefty). The move follows the removal of all Republican appointees to the Presidio Trust Board, which would have been able to review the...
  • $18.2 Million Congressional Slush Fund for #MeToo Claims…what’s the difference between THIS and DJT?

    04/04/2023 5:26:36 PM PDT · by Toespi · 28 replies
    What’s the difference? The American taxpayers paid for this secret slush fund to settle, silence. and payoff allegations of wrong doing, created in 1997, ending in 2017. It is time to demand names, allegations, how much was paid and why. Was this abuse of power to cover up and silence wrongdoing of congressional members running for office? There is no difference between this and allegations against DJT.

Joe Biden's taxpayer-funded push to build a "clean energy economy" is benefiting the left's most prominent billionaire megadonors, including Bill Gates and Laurene Powell Jobs,.. Biden's Energy Department has in the last two months announced nearly $3 billion in loans to two electric battery companies, Redwood Materials and Ioneer, which are backed by seed funding from Gates, Jobs, and other left-wing billionaires. Now those billionaires, who have poured millions into the effort to win Democrats power in Washington, are likely set to see...

    Governor Chris Sununu (R-NH) said Tuesday on FNC’s “Special Report” that Americans were “moving on” from former President Donald Trump in the 2024 Republican primary. Sununu said, “The race for president hasn’t really started. No one’s really thinking that way. Remember, we’re just coming out of November of ’22. And, you and I are in this world talking about it all the time, but the average American, they’re dealing with inflation, they’re dealing with high housing prices, record debt at the household level.” He continued, “And look, my message to, about President Trump is we thank you for your service....

    Gov. Chris Sununu has launched a fundraising vehicle to solicit unlimited contributions from national donors, a key step as he pursues a potential presidential candidacy in 2024. Sununu first confirmed to NBC News Wednesday that he had formed the "Live Free or Die" committee, a 501(c)(4) organization that permits politicians to raise unlimited money without disclosing the donations. Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and former Vice President Mike Pence, who are also eyeing presidential runs, have already formed similar committees. Haley, the former Republican governor of South Carolina, is expected to formalize her run for president next week. [cut] “I’m...

    Senators are trailing the Justice administration’s transfer of the remaining $28 million in federal covid relief dollars to a fund controlled by the Governor’s Office, which then put millions of dollars from that transfer toward construction of Marshall University’s new baseball field. “Isn’t that money laundering?” asked Senator Randy Smith, R-Tucker No, responded Berkeley Bentley, general counsel for the Governor’s Office. Bentley was testifying before the Senate Finance Committee, which wanted to know more about the transfer’s reasoning and validity. He told senators that the state faced a deadline to spend the remaining $28 million from federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief,...

    WARRENTON, N.C. (AP) — President Joe Biden’s top environment official visited what is widely considered the birthplace of the environmental justice movement Saturday to unveil a national office that will distribute $3 billion in block grants to underserved communities burdened by pollution. Forty years after a predominantly Black community in Warren County, North Carolina, rallied against hosting a hazardous waste landfill, Michael Regan, the first Black administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, announced he is dedicating a new senior level of leadership to the environmental justice movement they ignited. The Office of Environmental Justice and External Civil Rights — comprised...

    There is an ongoing, vicious effort by a maniacal dictator to rewrite the map of Europe. Some American voices are saying "stay out – what happens there doesn’t matter to us." It all sounds too familiar. The last time this happened, it led to World War II. This time, the brave people of Ukraine and their incredible military are more than holding their own against Russian President Vladimir Putin's efforts to destroy Ukraine as an independent, sovereign democratic nation. The brutal invasion of Russia has devastated the Ukrainian economy, and Ukraine is unable to continue this fight without military aid....

    Ukraine’s foreign minister said Thursday that everyone involved in the transportation and sales of grain seized by Russia in occupied areas of the country will face legal consequences. “Russia is a criminal three times over: it bombed Syria to ruins, occupied part of Ukraine, and is now selling stolen Ukrainian grain to Syria,” the ministry’s press service cited Dmytro Kuleba as saying. “I want to remind the participants in this deal: what is stolen has never brought happiness to anyone. Everyone involved in the sale, transportation or purchase of stolen grain is an accomplice to the crime,” Kuleba said. “Your...

    Top House Democrats wrote letters to the chief executives of four major social media platforms on Wednesday, urging them to preserve and archive content related to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that could be potential evidence of war crimes. The lawmakers asked Meta, Twitter, YouTube and TikTok to preserve and archive posts related to the conflict “that may provide evidence of war crimes or human rights violations,” establish a mechanism with human rights-specific organizations to share that content and create a way for content depicting a possible war crime to be flagged by the platforms’ users.

    Senator Rand Paul has blocked a fast-track senate vote on the additional $40 billion funding package created by Joe Biden and House Democrats. Both Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell approved a fast-track vote; however, senator Rand Paul (KY) stood defiant against their effort. Despite the high-profile pressure from the two Senate leaders, Rand Paul refused to move and that means the Senate will have to take procedural steps to overcome his objection, which could take several days. “My oath of office is the US constitution not to any foreign nation and no matter how...

    Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) blocked the passage of the $39.8 billion House-passed Ukraine aid after Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) presented a unanimous consent on behalf of himself and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell today. Schumer urged Paul to pass the bill and claimed that the Senator from Kentucky wanted to add certain changes directly to the bill, which have been opposed by members of both parties. “He is not even asking for an amendment. He is simply saying my way or the highway,” Schumer said. Paul asserted that the aid amount will almost equal the entire military budget of Russia...

    President Joe Biden on Thursday said he will ask Congress next week for supplemental appropriations to bankroll more military and economic aid for Ukraine. Biden, speaking at the White House, also announced he has approved spending another $800 million already provided by Congress to send more weapons to Ukraine, including dozens of additional howitzers and drones. That $800 million package will bring to $4 billion the total amount the Biden administration has spent arming Ukraine. But the president said he is running out of appropriations to help Ukraine and is poised to ask Congress for more. “Next week. I’m going...

    Several charity auditors have expressed concern over how Black Lives Matter’s $60 million in donations was managed after it emerged that some people announced as the organization’s leaders never actually took on the position, and no one seemed to know who handled the finances. Tax documents for the BLM charity, from 2019, mention an address in Los Angeles that does not exist, and the remaining two directors were unable to provide information – with one even removing BLM associations from his social media accounts after being approached by the Washington Examiner. BLM has yet to submit its 2020 tax return,...
