The 2016 Presidential election often touched upon the theme of corruption - the game being rigged - our elected professional politician officials selling out the masses to line their piggish pockets. There is no question - we have been betrayed.
Here's a quick glance at what has been happening in Maine. This is likely just the tip of the iceberg. Would any of this qualify as corruption, conflict of interest or appearance of conflict of interest?
I demand to know who your whistleblower is ...
Not only is there corruption in the energy field, it also infects most of the other arenas of legislative import. Our roads aren't failing because of elegant policy & planning. How come we spend more and more on health care without solving any problems? How come we feed kids year-round now and they are still just as hungry. The homeless population just keeps growing despite millions of dollars of funding.
And yes, corruption is disguised as incompetence.
Wind energy is synonymous with corruption. So in your travels, anytime you see a wind turbine or wind farm, you know that a veil of corruption has settled upon this community.
No doubt about it! Have seen it first hand.....
Thanks to rigging.............. Corruption and robbing The Department of the Treasury is all perfectly legal in this country. When you really break it down, the national debt reflects the amount of corporate and insider theft taking place.
Indeed , when it comes to corruption, the public gets what it deserves.
Non-utilization of the rights given to them in the constitution results in the loss of them.
Mainer's have been losing their rights rapidly under the 2008 Expedited Wind Law of Baldacci.
What does talking to a wind industry expert, a wind industry spokesman, or reading a wind industry study really mean?
For me being an ethical expert that has read over the mountain of fraudulent wind industry paperwork, it means none of these guys should not be trusted and their ridiculous opinions should never even be seen in the media.
With voluntary regulations and an industry using a premeditated pattern of deliberately stupid, contrived, and completely nonscientific studies, the truth about wind turbine impacts and the net energy these turbines produce has been hidden.
What would be the real cost of wind energy if the reported net output from wind turbines were not being hidden from the public in the false government (EIA) figures? What are the true wind energy costs with the billions of Production tax credits included? And what would be the real cost of wind energy if this industry had to pay appropriate fines for the incredible destruction they are hiding with their fraudulent research?
The wind industry has been hiring shills to produce bogus research and absurd opinions for decades.
This allows industry profits to keep pouring in and the public to continue to be fleeced. The fact is that wind industry fraud on America is so pervasive that at this point nothing related to this industry
should ever be believed, even if you hear it from President Obama.
After years of this fraudulent wind industry NOT reporting their massive slaughter to eagles, the Obama administration has put together a recent proposal that will allow the wind industry to slaughter 6200 eagles annually with their "bird safe" turbines. In addition America is exporting enough coal and fossil fuels each year to generate more than twice the kilowatt-hours of electricity now produced from all of America’s 75,000 MW of installed wind energy. This totalis three times higher if natural gas exports are included.
If a tree falls in the forest and you do not hear or see it, does that mean it did not happen? In CA the golden eagle population has plummeted by over 80% since the 1990’s and wind industry studies are
showing massive increases in their population numbers, does that mean the golden eagle decline hasn’t happened?
If the wind industry can produce their fake studies to show that there are no wind turbine impacts to eagles, does that that mean these turbines are not wiping them and other rare species off the face of this planet?
If the wind industry claims that they are not killing endangered species and slaughtering thousands of eagles annually, does that mean it hasn’t been taking place for years?
With the wind industry, rigging is the norm, fraud is rewarded and what you see is not real.
............This is Corruption.
Whoever posted the aforementioned 10 corrupt points for Maine, PLEASE PLEASE send this to Gov. LePage and/or his designee(s). Maybe if he had this very concise and accurate information in front of him he could open up some "worm cans"?
Please add Angus King got a $34 million dollar DOE GRANT also!
Corruption rules in this country. Read this article about allowing limited depositions because of privileged information. The statement and story should be corrected to read “allows rigging."
Irasburg wind violation case: PSB officer allows limited depositions
Calling all this corruption is OK but call it what it really is.....Organized Crime. There should be no questions associated with any of this even if our President Obama gets up on a podium and lies to us about inside rigging. This is for Penny's comment. Yes bald eagles on occasion will eat waterfowl. But they can’t depend on it as a steady food source. However bald eagles can and do get a regular diet of birds near wind turbines because of those that are regularly wounded or killed. But in the end these bald eagles end up being killed with their dance with the turbine blades.
Also any bald eagle that wants to start killing herons, will end up like the dance with turbine blades, dead. Blue herons have a spear for a beak and a healthy blue heron can mortally wound any eagle. I have watched encounters where eagles will try bluff a fish from a heron. They won't get close to them because of this weapon. The encounters I have seen, the herons remain very calm and barley even acknowledge the eagles.
Maine is one of the least transparent and potentially most corrupt states in the union. http://pinetreewatchdog.org/maine-gets-f-grade-in-2015-state-integr...
I read an article recently in the BDN regarding the come-back of the eagle population and how it is hurting the recovery of other threatened birds because the eagles are eating them. First article I've seen that cast bald eagles in a dark light. I wondered if this could be the start of a clever campaign to counteract the protests about the 30 year wind industry kill permits?
More corruption and rigging that involves Maine along with every other State.
About a year ago a wind tech showed me images & discussed 5 eagles killed in 1 month by his wind turbines. These eagles were not reported. I told FWS about this but there was no investigation. This was no surprise because the Denver Eagle Repository has secretly received over 33000 eagle carcasses since 1997. If one looks back a few years they will learn that thanks to another administration, the wind industry has been able to hide most of their devastating wind energy slaughter from the public.
In 1997 Bill Clinton amended the Freedom of Information Act to protect wind energy interests and help them conceal their industrial carnage to highly protected species. With another stroke of his pen Clinton also silenced all USFWS employees having knowledge of this slaughter with penalties of up to 3 year prison terms for releasing any job related information not approved by Interior Department superiors.
Everyone can read about all this in the article "Harvesting Eagles. In this article you will also discover that the Denver eagle repository was primarily set up in 1997 by the Clinton administration to handle the flood of new carcasses coming in from wind energy developments. Thanks to Bill Clinton, the origin and cause of death for all these 33000 eagles will remain a top secret and the public will never find out about these eagles.
Now we have another president covering for this industry fleecing America. The Obama administration has put together a recent proposal that will allow the wind industry to slaughter 6200 eagles annually with their "bird safe" turbines. This is how you rig the system.
Well, that about sums it up. "Maine is Open for Corruption!" banners should be hung from all the highway overpasses and special signs should be made for certain areas in Augusta.
