First Wind and the Washington-Wall Street Weasels exposed by Jerome Corsi

Recognize that the state of Maine was ground zero for First Wind and thus a key player in the ongoing collapse of the renewable sector. Governor Baldacci helped make Maine a leader after all.
May 1, 2016

After First Wind hired lobbyist Larry Rasky, the press secretary for then Sen. Joe Biden’s 1988 presidential campaign and a bundler who pledged to raise over $500,000 for Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign, the company secured over $500 million in government energy loans and grants. For his services, First Wind paid $405,000 between the first quarter 2009 and the third quarter 2011 to Rasky Baerlain Strategic Communications, the lobbying/public relations firm with offices in Boston and Washington.

SunEdison’s bankruptcy should call national attention to the economic reality that the underperforming renewable energy sector is collapsing under a mountain of debt, including hundreds of billions in federal government loan guarantees issued under various Obama stimulus programs. Moreover, it should reveal to the American taxpayer a massive network of green energy corruption that touches both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, as well as many of their political campaign donors, including several Wall Street investment funds and related hedge fund investors, as well as close Democratic Party-affiliated political associates. The wide net of green energy corruption also threatens to involve Republicans Ted and Heidi Cruz through their close association with Goldman Sachs, one of the prime Wall Street investment firms bankrolling the green energy revolution.

Each political party seems to favor particular scams that fleece the unwashed commoners. Clearly, the Democrats are the ones stealing the most from us via global warming and the green cure for this fraud. But Republicans are not blameless in the green area either. George W. Bush was connected to Enron and he was a huge friend of the wind industry. http://oilprice.com/Alternative-Energy/Wind-Power/George-W.-Bush-Th...

His buddy Karl Rove has boosted wind and has spoken at the AWEA. http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2012/06/05/495513/karl-rove-says-e...

In my opinion, Global Warming is nothing but a device to redistribute wealth where, magically, lots of the world's elites (including the USA's very own Uniparty), happen to get wildly rich in the process on everything from wind energy to carbon trading schemes.

The Big Lie is thriving today in every single place the elite can fit their thieving hands. And it's been going on for a very long time. Separate from green theft, but still related, the groundwork for U.S. involvement in Vietnam began in about 1945. Eisenhower had warned of the military-industrial complex which had necessarily (and rightfully) grown tremendously in WW II. While there are doubtless hundreds of theories explaining who killed JFK, on October 11, 1963, without fanfare, Kennedy signed National Security Action Memorandum 263 which many believe would have pulled all U.S. troops out of Vietnam by 1965. JFK was murdered 42 days later and on November 26, 1963, the day after he was buried at Arlington, LBJ signed National Security Action Memorandum 273, undoing Kennedy's NSAM-263 from 45 days prior. Leading up to Vietnam, one million refugees from North Vietnam were brought to South Vietnam, creating great unrest. Ever wonder why our government today (largely both parties), doesn't do anything about borders?

Pay attention I would say. Things are not what they seem. While the globalists like to brand this sort of discussion as kooky in their best Saul Alinsky way, many of us are starting to awaken. Apathy can give way to pitchforks overnight once people learn how they have been played. The more I look, the more I do not like what I am finding.

On a different tangent, but connected to the same sphere, back in about 1962 one of the topics for our debate club was: "Should the United Nations be significantly strengthened?". We had to prepare to argue both sides of the issue and I don't remember the gist of the arguments, but I'm pretty sure that none of us, on either side,  had in mind anything like the "Agenda" directives coming from that body in recent years. I'm pretty sure our focus was on the U.N. as a forum for world peace, not as an agent for world governance.

How naïve we high school students probably were then. Just had occasion to reread (after it being stashed away in my college album without view for 40 years or so) my high school graduation speech. Talked about the United States and the challenges of fighting communism and tackling space travel. Talked about the challenges of fighting disease, living in a world where nuclear destruction loomed,  and adjusting to a world where a machine could replace a man. (Oh god, I never once said 'woman' or 'she' in the whole speech.) But, nary a word about fighting climate change. Guess we were short-sighted back then. Not seeing that climate change would become the biggest threat to our existence. (She jests.)

"All this should reveal to the American taxpayer a massive network of green energy corruption that touches both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, as well as many of their political campaign donors, including several Wall Street investment funds and related hedge fund investors."

 

But is anyone willing to listen?  To someone like me it is very obvious that the corruption and unpunished criminal behavior from our leaders is killing America.

 

Wind energy is just one of the many DC scams be pulled on taxpayers. Electing a president, where the best liar wins, is another.

 

 

Think about it..........How many decades went by while a clan of pedophile priests feasted upon the children from their flocks?  How many decades went by before the cries of the molested were finally heard?  Things are now much worse.

 

 

If we just had a phone app that could wake up this self absorbed zombie generation to the fall that is coming.

Great article on the wind developers' 'upstream corruption' campaigns.

I only wish we could get someone in the press interested in writing about their 'downstream corruption' efforts such as offering bribes to towns (Grand Lake Stream) and opposition groups (PPDLW and FMM).

Then there's the more subtle approach they use so consistently and so well. Like hosting, on the night of a public hearing for Bowers, a "free dinner" at the local ATV/snowmobile club, making a pro-project presentation, slapping a pro-wind sticker on each person and herding them onto a bus to attend and testify at the hearing. Or paying their contractors to send their employees (while on the clock) to hearings wearing their green vests and hardhats. The list goes on.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
