On Wednesday the Department of Energy began financing solar power installation research with a $2 million award to Solar Mosaic. The solar energy research company has former Obama green jobs czar Van Jones (listed as an advisor) it also (employed) Rebuild the Dream, Jones firm, to do its public relations work.
The DOEs (grant money) will be distributed to nine companies in four states. Solar Mosaic received the most money, four times the amount of most other grants.
Jones resigned his post in the Obama administration three years ago amid controversy stemming from his past remarks.
Before working in the Obama White House, Jones signed a petition alleging officials in the George W. Bush administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war.
Jones later made crude remarks about Republicans in a public speech and expressed support for Mumia-Abu Jamal, a death row inmate convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer.
Its unclear whether the Department of Energy knew of Jones position at Solar Mosaic. Agency spokeswoman Jen Strutsman told The Daily Caller that grantmaking was decided solely on the merits of the project, assessed by career civil servants.
Each of the awards was selected because of its technology and the projects potential to reduce the cost of solar energy for American families and businesses, she added.
Van Jones did not respond to requests for comment.
So Obama wants yet another company to go bankrupt?
translation = Obama paid off Van Jones for the Occupy Wall Street BS
Reward given to fellow comrad in arms, there I fixed it!
This is how they money launder.
Croynism and money laundering. And the republicans, instead of standing on principle, are afraid they’ll lose the black vote if they impeach him. sarc
That money will have disappeared into an offshore account before lunch. Gone forever.
Here is a question unrelated to Van Jones but makes me wonder what is going on with Holder’s people.
I have seen Flea Market booths where Holder’s special people pay the rent each week for a stall with an address. Yet, the booth is rarely open - or some barely have any merchandise. Like 5 shirts hanging.
What kind of scam could they be running? One person told me they used it as an address for loans and could get like 30,000 business loan. I find that hard to believe.
Anyone ever heard of what scam could be in play??
November can’t come soon enough! Will we ever recover from the damage this clown has done to our country? He seriously needs to be out of office now. Even Biden couldn’t do as much damage as BO.
That is odd. However, that is how money laundering is done. Set up dummy companies. Than they go bust. These solar companies seem to be one of the favorites to launder large amounts to.
They are probably in on the take.
Sad the doting court eunuchs of the MSM fail to notice...
These companies have nothing to do with energy or creating real businesses. They are just money laundering entities for the furtherance of Obama’s agenda. Don’t think the intention is for them to succeed at all.
