On the top of this trash heap, Joe Biden is promoting an energy company called Proterra. Now that would be an innocent move; I guess if that is all he was doing b as he tries to sell his infrastructure package to the entire country.
But as you know, our government is a large criminal organization that looks the other way when wrongdoing is the main dish.
Biden’s energy secretary Jennifer Granholm is heavily invested in Proterra to the tune of $5 million. You might be shocked, but then again, with that news, you’re probably shaking your head at this crony capitalism.
[FREE BEACON] ENERGY SECRETARY JENNIFER GRANHOLM OWNS UP TO $5 MILLION IN THE ELECTRIC BATTERY AND VEHICLE MANUFACTURER PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN WILL PROMOTE ON TUESDAY AS PART OF HIS PUSH FOR A $1.9 TRILLION INFRASTRUCTURE BILL.
BIDEN’S VIRTUAL VISIT TO THE ELECTRIC BATTERY PRODUCER PROTERRA COMES DAYS AFTER VICE PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS PAID A VISIT TO THOMAS BUILT BUSES, A NORTH CAROLINA-BASED SCHOOL BUS COMPANY THAT COUNTS PROTERRA AS ITS MAIN SUPPLIER OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES. THE BACK-TO-BACK WHITE HOUSE VISITS TO GRANHOLM-CONNECTED COMPANIES RISK AT LEAST THE APPEARANCE OF IMPROPRIETY AND DEMONSTRATE HOW LAWMAKERS CAN USE POLICY INITIATIVES TO PAD THEIR OWN WALLETS.
BIDEN’S INFRASTRUCTURE PACKAGE INCLUDES A $174 BILLION INVESTMENT IN THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE MARKET, CALLS FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF “50,000 DIESEL TRANSIT VEHICLES” IN FAVOR OF ELECTRIC ALTERNATIVES, AND CREATES A CLEAN BUSES FOR KIDS PROGRAM THAT WILL “ELECTRIFY AT LEAST 20 PERCENT OF OUR YELLOW SCHOOL BUS FLEET.”
GRANHOLM HAS TAKEN A LEADING ROLE IN THE ADMINISTRATION’S FORTHCOMING INFRASTRUCTURE PACKAGE. THE PRESIDENT IN FEBRUARY TASKED HER WITH “IDENTIFYING RISKS IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN FOR HIGH-CAPACITY BATTERIES, INCLUDING ELECTRIC-VEHICLE BATTERIES, AND POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS TO ADDRESS THESE RISKS.”
