Skip to comments.Company that Owns Zuccotti Park Received Green Loan Guarantee from Obama Admin
Posted on 10/10/2011 6:00:46 AM PDT by opentalk
Its been a bit of a puzzle as to why the owners of Zuccotti Park that the Occupy Wall Street gang has taken over have allowed them to stay. Theyre angering residents and pretty much stinking up the place. The owners have mentioned that the park is normally cleaned every night, but they have not been able to clean it in three weeks. Sanitation was becoming an issue a few days ago. Lord knows what its like now, I hear its pretty bad.
Could the fact that the parent company of Brookfield Properties received a green energy loan guarantee from the Obama administration for a New Hampshire wind farm have anything to do with it?
In the name of green energy, the Obama administration is using taxpayer money to subsidize a New Hampshire wind farm that is a subsidiary of a hugely profitable company.
New Hampshires largest wind farm, the Granite Reliable Power project under construction in Coos County, is jointly owned by BAIF Granite Holdings, LLC and Freshnet Wind Energy, LLC. BAIF owns 75 percent of Granite Reliable. BAIF Granite Holdings was created earlier this year by Brookfield Renewable Power, which is a subsidiary of Brookfield Asset Management of New York.
That company, which runs clean energy operations around the world, has deep pockets. It reported net income of $454 million in 2009 and $3.2 billion in 2010. Brookfield Renewable Power financed the creation of BAIF Granite Holdings from its Brookfield Americas Infrastructure fund, which was reported in February to have $2.7 billion in assets. With that kind of backing, it is curious that the U.S. Department of Energy announced it would guarantee up to 80 percent of a $168.9 million loan for the Granite Reliable wind farm project last week...
Isnt it curious that such a prosperous company would need loan guarantees from a bankrupt government? I guess not, when you realize that Joe Bidens son is a partner in the lobbying firm Brookfield employed.
Theres much more to the story. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said it would be up to the property owners to evict the filth from the park. His girlfriend is on the companys board of directors, so perhaps he could have a word with her.
Something stinks, and it isnt just the unwashed protesters
Another stage for the show had to be established, after all.
Good lord the corruption and cronyism keeps getting deeper and deeper.
They’re probably hoping if it gets nasty enough, the protestors will leave on their own. If nothing else, it might eventually sink in to the little commies that a comfortable society actually requires people willing to do the right thing, or someone willing to pay someone to do the right thing. I think one of the reasons aging hippies remember Woodstock so nostalgically is that they were able to trash the place and then just walk away. Maybe a few weeks of living in their own filth will make a light flicker on over some of their fuzzy little heads.

Washington, D.C. U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced today the Department of Energy finalized a partial guarantee for $168.9 million loan to Granite Reliable Power, LLC. The loan guarantee will support a 99 megawatt (MW) wind generation project that will be New Hampshires largest wind farm.
OMG!!! A MYSTERY solved!!!!
Joe Biden’s son was the LOBBYIST??? Double OMG!!!
Oops! Occupy Wall Street slums step on big toes
Protesters trashing park with ties to powerful political, financial players
Now we find the Obama Administration gave the company that owns Zuccotti Park where the useful idiots stay over one hundred million in taxpayer money to let the people use the park as their staging area.
These “protesters” are useful idiots and Obama supporters. This whole thing is orchestrated by Soros and the Obama Administration.
Can you repost yesterday's stuff that was deleted (with appropriate edits)?
More pay to play politics.
What a coincidence.
You mean there are no sanitation laws on the books that Bloomberg can use to shut this down? Filthy all the way around.
Does anyone remember when the MSM called the Tea Party “the great unwashed” or something very similat to that? How come they haven’t bothered to notice that these people really ARE unwashed? Sounds a little biased to me.
” More pay to play politics.”
More cronyism .. say it isn’t so !
Michelle Malkin has information on her website today about ‘foreign-language’protesters who are paid , but don’t even know what their signs say . This tactic has also been used in the past by ‘Madame Pe-lousey’ , and Barbra Boxer .
No, they meant it. The great unwashed (in their minds) are those that have not been properly educated at a place like Haaaaahhhhvaaaaahhhhdd in a proper major like Law or Journalism. That lack of proper education can lead you to believing in archaic ideas like personal responsibility, faith in God, belief that rules and standards apply to all participants in a society, rule of law, freedom, that sort of stuff. So, you see, great unwashed works just fine. If your brain has not been washed properly, you are dangerous to The Greater Good For All. Or something.
