Bart Simpson For President

That ultimate symbol of mischievous scamp Bart Simpson in Season One of the longest running show in TV history when caught red-handed offered up one of his signature phrases, “I didn’t do it, nobody saw me do it, there’s no way you can prove anything.”

This came to mind when I was thinking about Hillary “They’ll Never Indict Me” Clinton and her morally challenged obviously corrupt character.   Donald Trump has said, “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters.”  Hillary could say, “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t get indicted.”

Everyone in the country knows that if any of us common people did one hundredth of what she has done in the email scandal alone we would have already been indicted along with the ten year Navy Vet indicted for taking a selfie on a submarine.  The Obama Justice Department is not going to indict Mrs. Clinton no matter what the FBI recommends.  She is above the law and she knows it or as she infamously said in the Benghazi hearing with regard to our four dead heroes, “What does it matter now?”

As a person who has been involved with and has closely followed the American political scene for more than fifty years this is the first time in my personal memory or Historical knowledge that a potential candidate for one party has promised to prosecute a potential candidate of the other party if elected.

As Secretary of State, Hillary’s accomplishments include the failed reset with Russia and of course her debacle in Libya.  As a United State Senator what did she accomplish?  In eight years she only sponsored three inconsequential laws:

S.3145, which designated a portion of U.S. Route 20A, located in Orchard Park, N.Y., as the “Timothy J. Russert Highway,” after the former “Meet the Press” host.

  1. 3613, which renamed the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 2951 New York Highway 43 in Averill Park, New York, as the “Major George Quamo Post Office Building.”
  2. 1241 which made the brick house of 19th century female union leader Kate Mullany a national historic site.

Her major accomplishment is that she married a man who became the most ethically challenged president in American History.  As the wife of Bill Clnton she was deeply involved in smothering the serial bimbo eruptions which grew out of his long history of having affairs, sexually harassing women who worked for him, and assaulting others.   This is the person who portrays herself as an advocate of women’s rights.

To highlight just one of her hypocritical faux stances for women’s rights look at her advocacy for equal pay.  The Clinton Foundation pays women executives 38% less than their male counterparts.  During her time in the Senate she paid women 72 cents for every dollar she paid men.  According to public records her current campaign pays women staffers less than she pays men. So much for putting your money where your mouth is!

Looking back once more to the email scandal that Hillary so nonchalantly dismisses if as she maintains she never received nor sent any classified material during her entire term as our Secretary of State my question is, what was she doing besides traveling the world at our expense?  Was she out of the loop and merely Secretary of State in name only?   It is inconceivable that anyone could be the Secretary of State and not send or receive any classified material.  That is beyond belief and a lie so transparent it shows total contempt for those it is meant to fool.

In the current election the Great Impresario likes to label people.  In many ways it is an effective form of political shorthand.  It sums up the thoughts, accusations, and beliefs about a person and brings them crashing in whenever they hear the catcall.  Lyin Ted and Little Marco have taken their toll picked up and repeated by the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media and their pet FOX.  Now we have Crooked Hillary.  The others were just effective.  This one seems appropriate.

If Hillary wins the presidency it will be a watershed just as the election and then re-election of her husband was.  As his marked the end of public morality hers will mean the end of the rule of law.  It will become evident to anyone observant enough to note the sunrise that enforcement of the bewildering lattice of laws and regulations are only aimed at the common folk not at our masters.

If such a legally challenged individual can fool enough of the people all the time to sit in the oval office it reminds me of what Bart said to Homer after it was revealed he had cheated on an important test, “I cheated on the intelligence test. I’m sorry. But I just want to say that the past few weeks have been great. Me and you have done stuff together. You’ve helped me out with things and we’re closer than we’ve ever been. I love you, Dad. And I think if something can bring us that close it can’t possibly be bad.”

Doing bad things for good purposes is the operational rational of Progressive Liberalism.  The ends justify the means was the operational rational of all the megalomaniac dictators of world History.  Please explain the difference.

Get politics out of climate debate

Get politics out of climate debate: Opposing view
John Coleman 4:29 p.m. EDT April 21, 2016
Science has taken a back seat at the United Nations.

On this Earth Day 2016, there is a great deal of frenzy about how our Earth is going to become uninhabitable, as the civilized activities of man allegedly trigger unstoppable global warming and climate change.

With the Obama administration set to commit the U.S. to the Paris climate agreement by signing our nation onto the document Friday, it is obvious that science has taken a back seat at the United Nations.

The environmentalists, bureaucrats and politicians who make up the U.N.’s climate panel recruit scientists to research the climate issue. And they place only those who will produce the desired results. Money, politics and ideology have replaced science.

U.N. climate chief Christiana Figueres has called for a “centralized transformation” that is “going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different” to combat the alleged global warming threat. How many Americans are looking forward to the U.N. transforming their lives?

Another U.N. official has admitted that the U.N. seeks to “redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.” The former head of the U.N. climate panel also recently declared that global warming “is my religion.”

USA TODAY
The heat is on: Our view

When all the scare talk is pushed aside, it is the science that should be the basis for the debate. And the hard cold truth is that the basic theory has failed. Many notable scientists reject man-made global warming fears. And several of them, including a Nobel Prize winner, are in the new Climate Hustle movie. The film is an informative and even humorous new feature length movie that is the ultimate answer to Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth. It will be shown one day only in theaters nationwide on May 2.

As a skeptic of man-made global warming, I love our environment as much as anyone. I share the deepest commitment to protecting our planet for our children and grandchildren. However, I desperately want to get politics out of the climate debate. The Paris climate agreement is all about empowering the U.N. and has nothing to do with the climate.

Weather Channel founder John Coleman has spent more than 60 years as a meteorologist, including seven years as the original weathercaster on ABC’s Good Morning America.

EXPLAINING ONE OF TRUMP’S MAJOR PLATFORM ITEMS: PROTECTIONISM

by: the Common Constitutionalist

When Chris Christie first exited the Republican presidential primary, I figured he would then throw his endorsement to one the establishment candidates left in the race. But then he threw his weight (pun intended) behind Donald Trump.

Other than both portraying themselves as tough talking, gravy-stained champions of the blue collar set, they didn’t appear to have a lot in common. Well, I found one thing both Chrispie Creme and The Donald share a desire for – and that is protectionism.

Protectionism is one of Trump’s major platform items. He of course will never describe it as such, but he’s been telling us for months how he will make great trade deals with China, Vietnam, Japan and Mexico. A large component of these “great deals” is tariffs slapped on these countries in an effort to drive up import prices thereby making American made products more competitive.

That my friends (hat tip – John McCain) is protectionism. It’s the government manipulating the free market (as if there is such a thing) in order to artificially pick winners and losers.

What actually happens is that companies which are then “protected” from less costly competition are free to raise prices. In effect the government just creates a monopolistic economy where the end user, the consumer, always loses in the end.

Yet this protectionism platform sounds good and sells well with those who feel they’ve been short-changed by foreign competitors and those who know little about free market economics. And frankly, why should they. It’s not taught in school, nor do we see it action, when all around is nothing but crony corporatism.

So what does this have to do with Chris Christie? It turns out he’s all for protectionism too, as he signed a bill protecting, of allprotectionism things, the Monument Builders Association (MBA) of New Jersey – the companies that produce and market gravestones in the Garden State.

In 2013 the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark “began selling grave markers for burial plots within the archdiocese’s cemeteries.” In that first year the Archdiocese made $500,000. The MBA was not happy. They claimed that their “members lost more than one-third of their business.” But how can this be? After all, the Church doesn’t produce gravestones. Therefore they must purchase them from someone to then resell to their flock. Could it be that the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark found a less expensive source than that of the MBA of New Jersey, thus threatening their monopoly? Sounds like it.

So the MBA took the Catholic Church to court over it, but the suit was tossed out – the court saying that it is not illegal for the Church to sell grave markers.

Muslim Savages Sack Swedish Town

300x200_syrian-refugees-at
According to RT, more than 60 Muslim refugees were involved in a riot in the town of Boden in Northern Sweden. Reasons for why the fight broke out are unknown at the moment, but it is thought that 15 refugees were intoxicated with drugs and/or alcohol and started destroying the very camp that they were housed in. The Swedish staff running the camp were forced to flee in the face of such violence, until police showed up and took control of the scene. This is another example of what Muslim refugees, a large number of which are economic migrants coming for social benefits, have done to Western societies in the last few years. – See more at: http://americanactionnews.com/articles/muslim-savages-sack-swedish-town#sthash.56YuslBZ.dpuf

MINNESOTA MOSQUE PRODUCING RADICAL SOMALI TERRORISTS

radical-imam-al-maneesey

Imam calls for ‘killing and destruction of Jews’

Waleed Idrus al-Maneesey is a radical imam who heads up the Al-Farooq mosque in Bloomington, Minnesota, attended by at least six known terrorists and terrorist supporters.
Waleed Idris al-Maneesey is a radical imam who heads up the Al-Farooq mosque in Bloomington, Minnesota, attended by at least six known terrorists and terrorist supporters.
A Minnesota man who pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State attended a radical mosque in Bloomington known for producing jihadists.

Adnan Abdihamid Farah, 20, faces up to 15 years in prison but avoided a possible life sentence when three other counts were dropped.

Farah is one of five men in a group of Somali Americans – all either refugees or sons of refugees – who the government charged in the case.

Farah was the only one of the five who was not accused of trying to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State, also called ISIS, but admitted he was communicating with an ISIS operative in Syria and intended to do so.

Adnan Farah’s older brother, Mohamed Abdihamid Farah, 22, is among the other four defendants who are scheduled to go on trial May 9.

Mohamed Farah, 22, is the older brother of Adnan Farah. He is also charged with providing material support to an overseas terrorist organization.
Mohamed Farah, 22, is the older brother of Adnan Farah. He is also charged with providing material support to an overseas terrorist organization.
A total of 10 Somalis from Minnesota have been charged with conspiracy to provide material support to ISIS. Five have now pleaded guilty, one has fled and his whereabouts unknown. Another dozen or so Minnesota Muslims, almost all of them of Somali origin, have traveled to Syria to join Sunni rebel groups since 2012.

Adnan Farah said his parents confiscated his passport when it came in the mail. He then put a $100 down payment on a fake passport and also tried to help a co-defendant get one.

Another 22 young Somali men have left Minnesota since 2007 to join al-Shabab, an al-Qaida-linked terrorist group seeking to take over Somalia.

Adnan Farah, who was born in the U.S. to Somali refugee parents, told the court he took no interest in al-Shabab but had watched “at least 100” ISIS propaganda videos on Youtube. Some of the videos allegedly acts of brutality by Syria’s Shiite government against Sunni Muslims.

“Taking it in with an open heart. That’s how, I guess, I formed my conclusions,” he told the court, according to an Associated Press report. He said his faith led him to believe he was obligated to help other Sunni Muslims in need.

Mosque sows seeds of violence

And where did Adnan Farah and his brother get their views about Islam?

Both attended the al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota, a mosque headed by radical Imam Waleed Idris al-Meneesey.

John Guandolo, a former FBI counter-terrorism specialist who founded Understanding the Threat in an effort to train U.S. law enforcement officers, said he is very familiar with the Bloomington mosque.

Guandolo said al-Maneesey teaches straight from the Quran and the life of Muhammad, Islam’s founder, as laid out in the hadiths.

“When Imam al-Meneesey calls for the killing and destruction of Jews and references a story from the Islamic prophet Mohammad, he is referring to the hadith (report) from Bukhari, who is the most authoritative hadith scholar in all of Islam,” Guandolo told WND. “To be clear, Islamic scholars consider the hadith of Bukhari to rise to a level just below the Quran.”

In that hadith, Bukhari quotes Mohammad as stating:

“The hour of judgment will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them. It will not come until the Jew hides behind rocks and trees. It will not come until the rocks or the trees say, ‘O Muslim! O servant of God! There is a Jew behind me. Come and kill him.”

This hadith is among the most authoritative Islamic texts, Guandolo said, which is why it can be found in the Hamas Covenant as well as in first grade text books in Islamic schools.

“The reason the al-Farooq mosque is producing jihadis who want to fight and kill Jews in the name of Allah is because that is what the mosque teaches,” said Guandolo, author of “Raising a Jihadi Generation.”

And it’s not just the Bloomington mosque that is teaching this doctrine.

80 percent of U.S. mosques preaching radical theology

Of the nearly 3,000 mosques now operating inside the United States, at least 80 percent have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a radical jihadist organization whose stated mission is to spread Shariah throughout the Western world.

“Since we know most of the mosques in America teach this same material as well, we should be aware that someday soon, many thousands of Muslims will wage war against the United States and its people just like they teach they should,” Guandolo said.

Read WND’s recent in-depth article on the rapid growth of U.S. mosques, “2,000 ticking time bombs in U.S.”

“To believe otherwise would be foolish,” he added. “Yet, many people appear to have learned nothing from the attacks in Brussels, Paris, Boston, San Bernadino, Chattanooga, New York, Las Vegas, Ohio, Fort Hood….

“I guess they don’t believe they have enough ‘evidence’ yet to render an understanding of what they are witnessing.

“Al-Farooq is one dangerous place. Unfortunately, there are thousands of other mosques, Islamic Centers and Islamic organizations across North America, Europe and elsewhere teaching the same thing.”

According to court documents, Adnan Farah intended to plead guilty after his arrest last year, and urged two co-defendants to do the same, but he changed his mind after his imam persuaded his family that the defendants should stick together and go on trial, AP reported.

In the end, he took the original plea deal offered by the government. “This is the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make,” he said in court.

Yusra-Ismail-Minnesota-Somali-muslim-age-19
Yusra Ismail, another Somali who attended al-Farooq mosque, shown here at her high school graduation in 2013. She later left Minnesota to join ISIS.
Besides the Farah brothers, at least three others charged with terrorist-related activity have also come out of the al-Farooq mosque in Bloomington.

Shy girl goes gangbusters for jihad

One of the al-Farooq adherents was a Somali girl named Yusra Ismail.

Ismail was described in a 2015 Minneapolis Public Radio story as a quiet and soft-spoken teen who regularly donned the niqab, covering all of her face except for her eyes. She tended a community garden and volunteered at her family’s mosque in St. Paul before she “switched to a new mosque in Bloomington.”

Her teachers at Lighthouse Academy of Nations, a Minneapolis charter school, remember a shy, kind student who never got in trouble.

But about two years before she left the country to join ISIS, Ismail joined al-Farooq mosque.

She studied Arabic and the Quran at the Islamic school inside the mosque.

“She gradually became fixated on memorizing the Quran,” MPR News reported. Ismail’s sister told MPR her family feared she was taking her religious studies “too far, saying there was a lack of balance in her life.”

Ismail left the Twin Cities on Aug. 21, 2014.

Federal prosecutors said she boarded a plane to Norway using a passport she had stolen from a Minneapolis woman.

Ismail, then 19, called her family to say she was in Syria.

Imam teaches Shariah law above U.S. law

Al-Meneesey, the imam at al-Farooq mosque, has written that Muslims should place Shariah above “man-made” law.

During a November sermon al-Meneesy referred to a hadith describing how Jews had been punished by God repeatedly for “corruption.”

“When the Children of Israel returned to cause corruption in the time of our Prophet Muhammad,” al-Meneesy said in a translation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, “and they disbelieved him, God destroyed him at his hand.”

History will repeat itself, he said.

Jerusalem “remained in the hands of the Muslims until it fell into the hands of the Jews in 1387 AH [1967 AD], and has been a prisoner in their hands for 34 years [sic], but the victory of God is coming inevitably.”

Al-Meneesy is also president and chancellor of the Islamic University of Minnesota. At least five young men and one young woman who attended his mosque have left the United States to fight with terrorist groups al-Shabaab and ISIS.

The university’s website boasts of recognition by Holy Quran University in the Sudan, which was founded in 1990 by the regime of Sudanese war criminal and President Omar al-Bashir.

The Islamic University of Minnesota also professes to serve as the official representative of Sunni Islam’s most important institution, Al-Azhar University, in the U.S. and Canada. Al-Azhar officials have refused to condemn the Islamic State as apostates and heretics.

You Will FLIP OUT When You See How Much Money You Are Spending PER DAY To DEPORT ILLEGALS On PRIVATE JETS!

9-82

I remember hearing a story once where a professional wrestler was needed on an emergency for the promoter that he worked for. The problem was, he was needed across the country in about eight or nine hours. The promoter, not wanting to put this into the hands of commercial air travel hired a charter jet to make sure that this particular talent was in the building on time. The wrestler asked the pilot during the flight how much all of this cost and he was told that it was about 17,000 dollars. In 1985. For one man, paid for by a private citizen conducting private business at his own expense.

Illegal aliens, right after they get kicked out – which seems suspicious from the start since this administration loves keeping them here for future votes – some illegal aliens are flown back on private jets to their home countries.

Slow hand clap, big government.

Many (if not most) Americans will never board a private jet in their lifetimes, but illegals are allowed the privilege – on our dime no less!

From DailyMail via WZ:

American taxpayers are forking out more than $300,000 every day to deport illegal immigrants on commercial flights and even on private jets, Daily Mail Online can exclusively reveal.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spent $116m in 2015 to transport 235,413 people in the United States illegally back to their home countries.

More than 40 per cent of those who had violated visa restrictions were convicted criminals while more than 1,000 were identified as gang members.

A group campaigning for taxpayers’ rights have said the figures obtained by the Daily Mail Online are ‘insane’ and an ‘outrageous waste of tax dollars’.

The ICE revealed to Daily Mail Online that the average cost of every immigrant in 2015 was $12,213.

The cost includes identifying the immigrant, apprehending them, placing them in a detention center, their process through immigration court and their subsequent removal.

Special privilege for those who break the law.

Well, Obama was right about one thing. He aimed to fundamentally transform the country from the inside out, and he’s accomplished that goal.

PHOTO: Here’s The Stunning Piece Of Paper That Proves The Colorado Vote Was “Rigged”

Presidential candidate and real estate mogul Donald Trump has received much criticism lately for calling the Colorado primary vote rigged — but Trump is right, and there is evidence to prove it.

Before the primary even began, delegates met and passed around a resolution which forbade delegates to vote for Trump for president or vice president because of a list of arbitrary reasons.

Social media users have gotten a hold of the resolution, and are going crazy over it.

The resolution states that “Donald Trump is not a Republican, Donald Trump is a demagogue, Donald Trump would destroy the Western alliance which is the basis of American security,Donald Trump would destroy the system of international trade…” and continued on and on and on.

ANOTHER OBAMA SUCESS -ANOTHER TAXPAYER-FUNDED SOLAR-ENERGY COMPANY FAILS

solar_power_wind_power
The collapse of a Spanish-based multinational renewable energies company could cause election-year embarrassment not only to President Obama, Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and the Democratic Party, but also to Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi, through their ties to Goldman Sachs.

Announced Tuesday, Seville-headquartered renewables multinational firm Abengoa plans to sell off four solar photovoltaic power plants in Spain for a collective value of $65.13 million, $57.26 million and a net cash flow of $13.9 million, helping the company meet its debt-restructuring targets set out in its feasibility plan.

The asset sale announced Tuesday comes after the company sold in February its 20 percent share in the 100MV Shams-1 concentrated solar power plant in the United Arab Emirates to the Abu Dhabi-based renewable energy company Masdar.

The ‘Stop Hillary’ campaign is on fire! Join the surging response to this theme: ‘Clinton for prosecution, not president’

The Abengoa selloff, which has included selling the company’s office headquarters in Madrid, is part of a non-strategic divestment plan announced after the company went into bankruptcy in November. The move is designed to reap approximately $112 million in operating cash to stay in business until December.

The bankruptcy, the largest in Spain’s history, was triggered after Gonvarri, an arm of Spain’s industrial group Gestamp, decided in November 2015 against a plan to invest $371 million into the company.

Last November, after the Abengoa bankruptcy was announced, Reuters reported the company’s bonds were “virtually worthless,” as its share price plummeted 54 percent in a single day.

In a separate move Tuesday, a local court in Mexico ordered the seizure of all Abengoa assets in the country in an effort to settle an action by bondholders seeking to prevent the company from selling the Mexican assets without paying the bondholders.

Abengoa’s stock closed Tuesday at $1.49 per share, down 68.46 percent since Sept. 4, 2015, underperforming S&P 500 by 75.78 percent.

Obama invested billions in Abengoa

Abengoa was a renewable energy company that scripted perfectly the Obama administration’s shift from carbon-based fuel, providing a European counterpart to the U.S.-based Solyndra.

Solyndra was earmarked for funding in the Obama “economic recovery” stimulus efforts that began in 2008 at the end of the George W. Bush administration after the bank failures and economic downturn occasioned by the collapse of the subprime mortgage market.

What do YOU think? Should taxpayers be subsidizing renewable-energy companies? Sound off in today’s WND poll.

Last November, the Washington Times reported Abengoa had received at least $2.7 billion in federal loan guarantees since 2010 to build several large-scale solar power projects in the United States. There was no certainty any of the government loans would be paid back amid a collapse that dwarfed the $530 million loss to the U.S. taxpayer with the collapse of Solyndra in 2011.

An exposé by Town Hall on Aug. 4, 2012, found that the then-estimated $2.8 billion Abengoa received in U.S. federal grants and loans made the company the second largest recipient of the $16 billion doled out through the Department of Energy Section 1705 loan guarantee program, the same DOE program that had funded Solyndra.

Hillary Clinton, the Export Import Bank and Abengoa

In her 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton has argued for the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank, insisting she wants to be “the small business president.”

Last June, Breitbart reported that under the Obama administration, Export-Import Bank lending has increased 248 percent, with U.S. taxpayers now holding nearly $140 billion in Export-Import Bank exposure.

The same article noted Abengoa has obligations of more than $225 million in Export-Import Bank support.

The article further observed that Bill Richardson, appointed by President Bill Clinton as secretary of energy from 1998-2001, was both an advisory board member to the Export-Import Bank and a member of the Abengoa advisory board at the time the Export-Import Bank loan commitments were made to Abengoa.

The Washington Free Beacon reported in January 2013 that the Export-Import Bank had approved a $78.6 million direct loan to Abengoa in December 2012, as well as a $73.6 million direct loan to a wind farm owned by Abengoa in Uruguay, noting Richardson’s conflict of interest.

The Free Beacon pointed out that the Export-Import Bank, as a function of extending taxpayer-backed loans to foreign buyers of U.S. exports, estimated approximately 510 American jobs would be supported by the Abengoa transactions.

“These two transactions demonstrate the strength of American energy technology and highlight the importance of this growing sector,” Export-Import Bank Chairman and President Fred P. Hochberg said in a statement, as reported by the Free Beacon.

“In order for the U.S. to compete globally, our companies must continue to produce cutting-edge energy technology,” the statement continued. “President Obama set an ambitious goal of doubling U.S. exports in five years, and these types of projects will help us meet that goal in 2015.”

In an update to the Free Beacon article, an Export-Import Bank spokesman insisted that Richardson “had no communication with anyone at the bank” regarding the Abengoa-related transactions.

Goldman Sachs, Ted Cruz and Abengoa

The fascination of Democratic Party politicos with Abengoa began in 2007, when former vice president Al Gore’s U.K. Generation Investment Management bought a stake in Abengoa, a company Gore touted as “the largest solar platform in Europe.”

Gore’s GIM was started in 2004 with several Goldman Sachs’ executives, including David Blood, Mark Ferguson and Peter Harris.

Today, Goldman Sachs has an Alternative Energy Group that specializes in investments of $10 million or more in renewable energy projects, including solar energy.

In November 2015, Goldman Sachs announced plans to invest $150 billion in renewable energy projects, including solar and wind farms, and energy efficiency upgrades for buildings and power grid infrastructure.

In a move typical of Wall Street, Goldman Sachs has turned the Abengoa bankruptcy into a profit alternative.

In 2014, Abengoa spun off a “yieldco” under the name “Abengoa Yield” as a NASDAQ-listed company that has taken “sufficient separateness provisions to insulate itself from the bankruptcy of the parent company, Spain’s Abengoa SA,” according to a report by rating agency Moody’s in March.

A “yieldco,” or “yielding company,” is a relatively new Wall Street innovation that has sprung up in the renewable energy sector since 2014, with strong support from Goldman Sachs.

A new “yielding company” is created to separate from the parent a dividend growth-oriented subsidiary company that bundles renewable energy operating assets to generate predictable cash flows to investors, even if the parent company is dissolved in bankruptcy liquidation.

The concept behind a yielding company is that the parent company developing renewable energy resources faces high risk, including insolvency. But renewable energies, once developed, should produce low-risk cash flows, especially if government subsidies remain in place.

Goldman Sachs, one of the Wall Street innovators in the “yieldco” phenomenon, is one of the 113 institutional shareholders owning Abengoa Yield shares, currently worth more than $45 million.

Today, Goldman Sachs’ enthusiasm for investing in renewable fuels mirrors Ted Cruz’s position on alternative energies. Cruz argues renewable fuels have a place in an “all of the above” energy economy, with the presumption they will succeed with consumers even if government price and policy intervention in the energy marketplace are phased out.

During the Iowa primary campaign, Cruz supported the Renewable Fuel Standard, RFS, through 2022, arguing for the retention for six more years of requirements set by the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA requires transportation fuel sold in the United States to contain a minimum proportion of renewable fuels, including cellulosic biofuel, biomass-based diesel and advanced biofuel.

“My view on energy is simple: We should pursue an ‘all of the above’ policy,” Cruz wrote in the Des Moines Register on Jan. 6. “We should embrace all of the energy resources with which God has blessed America: oil and gas, coal, nuclear, wind, solar, and biofuels and ethanol. But Washington shouldn’t be picking winners and losers.”

He asserted his tax plan would phase out all subsidies and mandates, including renewable fuel standards and the RFS requirements, arguing that antitrust laws would ensure that the oil and gas industry would not be able to block market access for ethanol producers.

Cruz’s argument depended on a presumption that U.S. consumers, allowed full market access, would find “quite popular” mid-level ethanol products like E25 or E30. Should that proposition prove false, Cruz proposed no alternative to rescue renewable fuels from losing in the open competition of a fuel market absent government intervention.

While Cruz has criticized the Obama administration guaranteed loans to Solyndra, he has been silent on the Abengoa bankruptcy and the development of Abengoa Yield, which generates profits today for investors like Goldman Sachs while the U.S. taxpayer takes millions of dollars of losses on government-subsidized loans.

Badly Injured Iraqi War Hero Leaves Trump Campaign Speechless With STUNNING Message

Injured-Vet

Badly injured Iraqi war hero Staff Sgt. Bobby Henline, who suffered devastating burns and nearly lost his life while on a mission north of Baghdad in 2007, shocked GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign this week when he not only endorsed the front-runner but also offered be a foreign policy adviser to him.

“I would definitely advise Mr Trump,” said the veteran, who after the attack in 2007 left the military to attempt a career in stand-up comedy,.

“A good leader doesn’t have to know everything,” he told the U.K. Daily Mail. “Nobody knows everything. That’s why you surround yourself with people who are experts in different areas. That’s what makes a good leader. Someone who can motivate the people like that.”Henline, 44, also expressed support for Trump’s stance on waterboarding, saying, “In war, you have to do things you wouldn’t normally do in life.”
And this guy would know, given all that he has endured. Nine years ago, he made barely it out alive when a roadside bomb exploded under his Humvee, killing his four comrades and leaving 38 percent of his body covered in gruesome burns. The devastating attack also immobilized his hand so badly that he later opted to have it removed.
Yet he now tours the country performing stand-up comedy routines to raise money for veterans in need and increase awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder. Talk about a majestic comeback.

But what he wants now is to see a strong-minded leader retake the White House and send the Islamic State group militants in the Middle East scurrying away in defeat.

Allen West “Take it from a combat vet, what Trump JUST did is masterful”

Donald Trump has just pulled off a great military styled maneuver called a ‘turning movement.’ In warfare this is a tactic of making the enemy turn and accept engagement in a direction he was not prepared for. Mr. Trump has done this on the political stage, right in front of everyone’s eyes. Now the GOP establishment has to address the issues that The Donald has raised and spend their time being challenged from a direction that they did not see coming. Bravo Zulu, Mr. Trump, for a well executed tactic.
As Written By Allen B. West:

Today I want to have a fun discussion about tactics. It’s not something that only works on the battlefield; it’s essential in just about every aspect of our lives. And it’s relative to two events from Tuesday evening.

Last night I got back from speaking at an event on the campus of Texas Christian University. The program was sponsored by the Young America’s Foundation and the topic was “Radical Islamic Terrorism and National Security.” I took the liberty, based on recent events, to broaden the topic to discuss the current 21st century battlefield with the challenges of state vs. non-state actors and their belligerence. I wanted to provide an analysis and discuss strategic level policy decisions that would enable us to defeat these very pressing threats. I found out there was a group in attendance sponsored by the Muslim Student Association that tried to have the event cancelled.

This is a very serious issue in that we have college campuses, which are no longer institutions of learning and education through the free exchange and debate of ideas. We have institutions of higher learning where it appears fascism is taking deep root. The good thing is, the event went on, but the group, wearing their “Coexist” t-shirts, were in the audience. What was comical was that they paid not a lick of attention to the issues and policy solutions presented. But as soon as the question and answer portion began, they lined up with their pre-printed sheets. And oh boy, was I ever excited.

I found a true lack of ability to critically think; instead just an inane robotic repetition and regurgitation of talking points. The most humorous comment was when a kid who said he was from Saudi Arabia told me I didn’t understand the meaning of “jihad.” That chucklehead gave me a really good internal belly laugh, especially as I responded that “jihad” is why they were shooting at me when I was in Iraq. It’s what Osama bin Laden and ISIS called for. And of course, one of these misguided kids tried to convey to me that ISIS wasn’t Muslim or Islamic — guess those fellas are Methodist or Presbyterian. We’ve heard that one before.

I do so love going to college campuses and supporting these great young conservatives who are operating behind ideological enemy lines. But, it’s all about being prepared, reading Rules for Radicals and going on offense. It’s about using the right tactics in order to win the debate and send the little junior progressive socialists home confused, bewildered and embarrassed.

So, as soon as I got home I learned about the results of the New York presidential primary — talking about tactics.

I kinda have to believe the 15-point loss for Senator Bernie Sanders may just have been a silver bullet, the wooden stake. Is it over? Nah, but the situation is even more dire for Sanders. The problem is that he had to keep the contest close in the area of pledged delegates, because he was never going to win the Democrat “super-delegates.” The question now is what tactics can Hillary Clinton use to win over those rabid Sanders supporters?

On the GOP side, well, it appears that Donald Trump, with 60 percent has won 89 delegates. That’s what will be talked about all day today. But, I want to keep the post-primary discussion on the topic of tactics.

I want to congratulate Donald Trump on using a form of offensive maneuver tactic called the “turning movement.” Here was Donald Trump coming off the loss of Wisconsin followed by states such as Colorado and Wyoming, and what did he do? Simple, Trump redefined the narrative and turned everyone.

You see, the objective of the turning movement isn’t to attack your enemy directly in their strongest position. It’s about attacking elsewhere and forcing – turning — your adversary out of their position and forcing them to fight at a place and time and on terrain of your choosing. What Trump has done is truly masterful – although I’m not sure he knew he was doing it – other than whining.

Trump has attacked the primary electoral system, knowing he should have known the rules and systems of all 50 states before he started. However, he’s brought to light the delegate system which up to this point in American presidential politics, most folks hadn’t noticed.

Now, all of a sudden, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is constantly having to explain rules, in specifics, and defend the system. We have everyday Americans challenging whether or not their votes count and asking who are these “delegates.” And this is coming from the GOP frontrunner! Trump has completely “turned” the entire system on its head and has even caused some RNC officials to throw out the number of 1,100 delegates as being, well, good enough.

And having the GOP Senate Majority Leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell, stating that the delegates should decide who gets the GOP nomination only throws gasoline on a very hot fire. Even a Fox News exit poll question asked, “How should the nominee be decided”…based on no one reaching the 1,237 majority delegate number. The response was simple: by the most votes.

So, what happens if Donald Trump doesn’t reach 1,237 but by far has the most votes and biggest tally of delegates? First, if we soon reach the point where Senator Ted Cruz is mathematically eliminated from achieving 1,237 – which could come next week — it will be hard to tell all these millions of GOP primary voters they do not count.

You see, just the same as being able to know the environment in which I found myself Tuesday evening at TCU, and develop the right tactics, Donald Trump, even after realizing he didn’t have the right structure and was getting beat at the “art of the deal” — he turned the entire narrative on its head.

The question now becomes, can Donald Trump actually make the adjustment and become a statesman and address the issue of “how?” No one is looking for him to become a policy wonk but he MUST demonstrate an ability to present cogent policy positions and win the debate of ideas. There can be no debate that Trump has outmaneuvered the GOP establishment and elites and the hopes of Cruz, and certainly Gov. John Kasich are fading — well in the case of the latter, gone.

All this reminds me of that great quote from retired Marine 1SGT Jim Reifinger: “If you ever find yourself in a fair fight, it’s all because your tactics suck.”
