The Obama Vendetta, Reprisal and Retribution Pay-Back Administration: Meet Kenneth “The Rat” Cestari

The Obama Vendetta, Reprisal and Retribution Pay-Back Administration: Meet Kenneth “The Rat” Cestari

 

 

 

By Tony Leveque

 

 

(Opinion)

 

 

 

 

This is as much addressed to the newly minted Secretary of Energy, Rick Perry as it is to the American voters.

 

 

Donald Trump and the 2017 Congress have learned the truth about Obama’s insane need for payback via the goons he hired to put hit-jobs, character assassinations and momentum-sabotage on any person, reporter, or policy that conflicted with his Silicon Valley handlers.

 

 

Take one Mr. Kenneth Cestari, Obama’s insider at the scandal-ridden U.S. Department of Energy, “officially” with DOE since August of 2009. As he migrated into the Obama insiders club he was still working with the law firm Dickstein Shapiro LLP, who help conduit Sony Pictures money to Obama and tried get get pedophile Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert as a lobbyist shortly after he resigned his seat in Congress. Hastert was later indicted in May 2015 on charges of illegally withdrawing money from banks to pay hush money to an individual that he committed misconduct against years ago. Hastert resigned from his lobbyist position the day the indictment was unsealed. Hastert’s biography was quickly removed from the firm’s website, and the firm also purged all mentions of Hastert from its previously posted press releases.[9] Hastert’s resignation from Dickstein Shapiro following the indictment against him, left the law firm and lobbying firm “reeling,” according to news reports.[9] The firm’s lobbying business had already been struggling; it was reported that the firm had billed $130,000 on behalf of eight clients for the first quarter of 2015, “not close to being on track for its overall 2014 billings, when it brought in $3.7 million for the year.”[9] In the few years preceding the indictment, Dickstein Shapiro had already “faced an exodus of … talent” to rival firms Greenberg Traurig and Cozen O’Connor, as well as “the loss of major client contracts” including Lorillard Tobacco Co., Peabody Energy Corp., Bayer Corp., and Covanta Energy Corp.[9] Following the Hastert indictment, it was reported that Dickstein Shapiro’s biggest domestic client, Fuels America, terminated its lobbying contract with the firm.[9] Shockingly, Trump-hating Ken Cestari remains at his post even as Trump sits in the Oval Office.

 

 

Cestari’s job is to avoid any actual human contact or conversation with the public or Congress. Cestari files papers. He files papers that are intimately calculated to manipulate the legal system to Obama’s advantage and to the voters disadvantage. Even though Obama is out of the White House, Cestari is still one of the hit men that tries to find legal tricks which can cause as much damage to Trump (or pretty much anyone) that the departed, but aggressively vindictive, Obama fingers in attacks from his red brick DC mansion where he now delegates payback.

 

 

Cestari ran cover for the Solyndra scam, Steven Chu’s scandals, and the huge number of other historically disastrous Obama campaign financier payouts that led to instant bankruptcies, yet epic covert profits, via skims and tax frauds, for those financiers and their schemes.

 

 

In one case, a group of Applicants had joined forces to address the stated needs of America’s energy, jobs and security requirements through Department of Energy solicitations.

 

 

A Cartel of Department of Energy and White House officials have recently stated that The Department of Energy was being used by the Obama Administration as a “political slush-fund to pay off campaign financiers while sabotaging their competitors…”. Cestari seems to be in the middle of that!

 

 

 

A large number of Applicants were the competitors who were sabotaged by Obama Administration officials including Cestari’s group.

 

 

 

A group of Department of Energy and White House officials have recently stated that The Department of Energy had been ordered to “…never allow those specific applicants to ever receive a drop of funding for the rest of their lives…” as part of the vendetta, reprisal and retribution campaign illegally ordered by Department of Energy and White House officials from the Obama Administration.

 

 

 

Applicants mailed by Ken Cestari include those “specific applicants”. Applicants have submitted over 2 million pages of application material in the current and previous applications, all of which were covered in national media, FBI investigations and Congressional hearings, thus, it is impossible for Ken Cestari to not be aware that Applicants have, in fact, submitted ten times more application data than Tesla Motors. This is a fact proven in a side-by-side comparison of Tesla Motors’ actual application and applicants full sets of materials.

 

 

 

Ken Cestari is fully aware that Applicants are able to prove all of their assertions before a federal Special Counsel in public hearings. He knows what type of corruption-based crimes he is covering up. The current hearings and investigations, already underway, prove that the Obama Administration abused the resources of the intelligence community, DOJ and Agency resources. Obama and his hordes did this in order to operate vendetta, reprisal and retribution campaigns they illegally ordered.

 

 

 

At no point did any DOE officials credibly, nor sincerely, communicate with Applicants to clarify the questions posed by Applicants. Cestari and his team actually avoid talking to any Applicants who are not campaign financiers. In fact, a side-by-side comparison of IC phone logs and meeting logs shows that Applicants received over 200% less interactive support than campaign financier Tesla Motors received. Cestari and his Department of Energy Freedom Of Information staff have refused to allow the public to see Tesla’s original, UN-doctored application. They have violated the FOIA laws by refusing to show it to the public and the media. They won’t allow it to see the light of day because it reveals crimes by Cestari’s compatriots.

 

 

 

Upon presentation of the fact that DOE intends to “…never allow those specific applicants to ever receive a drop of funding for the rest of their lives…” and with the positive progression of multiple lawsuits and investigations proving the above facts, Applicants were advised to stand by while the new Administration reviews the facts and the elements for a Special Prosecutor to work with Applicants.

 

 

 

Thus, the DOE responses produced and delivered by Ken Cestari are illegal, unethical, and a gross violation of the precepts of fairness governing the voters and citizens of the United States Of America. Mr. Cestari is knowingly participating in a felony-class cover up of a “slush-fund” and the vendetta, reprisal and retribution campaign against Applicants and all those who cooperated with law enforcement to interdict those crimes.

 

 

 

Cestari should be fired from the U.S. Department of Energy. America has no room for Obama’s left-over retribution goons. Trump has been hacked by Obama’s team and harassed with Obama’s Russian insiders led by Obama’s DNC goons.

 

 

There are hundreds of Obama saboteur/hold-overs still in Washington DC, who are still out to destroy any progress by small business or modern innovations that Obama’s financiers say must be killed off. They have already been caught trying to ruin President Trump’s efforts from within spy agencies and internet companies

 

 

Cestari and his progress-killing brood must be rooted out and sent packing. Instead of a promtion, Cestari needs a Jeff Sessions indictment!

Representation of taxpayers in Washington, DC has become almost entirely about making fake “laws” which direct U.S. Treasury cash to one side or another. In the “Cleantech Crash” incident, this process stooped to the level of mobster-ism and organized crime.

The United States Department of Energy defrauded hundreds of American companies and tens of thousands of domestic workers

 

The United States Department of Energy defrauded hundreds of American companies and tens of thousands of domestic workers

 

 

 

By EVPI

 

 

Just prior to President Obama’s election, United States Department of Energy officials made arrangements with Silicon Valley campaign financing billionaires to exclusively hand them hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars in exchange for their support. They made this deal illegally and at the expense of a huge number of American companies, employees and future jobs.

 

 

The cover-up has grown so thin, and has become so laughably obvious, that the American public has anointed the most hell-raiser candidates, for the White House in 2016. The voters overtly want an end to this kind of horrific political crony corruption. They are calling in a mandate to end this kind of public policy crime.

 

 

The kick-back scheme involved a process called “hard-wiring”. In this political crony payola scam, the Department of Energy created a carve-out of the U.S. Treasury called the “ATVM Fund”. Only the Silicon Valley billionaires best friend, one Mr. Steven Chu, had control over the distribution of that taxpayer cash. In a shockingly blatant and audacious act, Steven Chu only gave the taxpayer money to his friends and business partners. Those friends and business partners were also the very people who lobbied to put him in charge of the Department of Energy. They also turned out to be the very same people who skimmed off the top of those taxpayer dollars and took wind-fall “unjust gains” profits by “cooking the books” with tax write-offs when all of Chu’s friends sham companies went belly up.

 

 

It was a crime of historical proportions.

 

 

The very guy who was charged with arresting Mr. Chu, the U.S. Attorney General: Eric Holder, turns out to have been business partner with all of Chu’s associates.

 

 

During the course of this crime, the United States Department of Energy (DOE) defrauded hundreds of American companies and tens of thousands of domestic workers by inviting them to spin their wheels applying for those fake “ATVM Funds”. Huge numbers of non-insider technology companies spent millions of dollars and years of their time under-going artificially created hurdles and endless decision stonewalling by The Department of Energy. These outsider and indie companies lost billions of dollars because the United States Department of Energy put “hit jobs” on them.

 

 

From day one of the application process DOE’s Steven Chu, Lachlan Seward, Matt Rogers, Carol Battershel, Steve Silver, Steve Spinner, Alison Spinner and the rest of the “DOE WEASAL PACK”, as they have come to be known, knew that not a single one of the non-crony applicants had even the most remote chance of receiving the Department of Energy funding. The money had been secretly hard-wired for John Doerr, Elon Musk, Eric Schmidt, Solyndra and other crony Silicon Valley campaign financiers.

 

 

These many domestic companies were lied to, deceived, defrauded and jerked around until they could no longer survive. At the time, the national venture capitol funds were also entirely controlled by Steven Chu’s business partners. Elon Musk’s marketing head: Darryl Siry, quit Tesla, in disgust, and penned an article in the national news disclosing how the Department of Energy had rigged the market to be the gate-keeper of who got to play. Bright Automotive issued a public letter disclosing the racket, XP Vehicles sued the Department of Energy for corruption and racketeering and the U.S. Senate ethics committee issued a scathing report on the wholesale crime culture that pervaded the energy department. Steven Chu, and his mobster-like technology Cartel, sabotaged and destroyed some of the nation’s greatest innovators, simply because their products were better than his buddies products.

 

 

Voters, this is the America you have allowed to happen. This rampant criminality, at one of the largest agencies in America, is corruption at it’s deepest and darkest. In 2016, you get to chose if this is how you want your hard-earned money managed. Make the right choice this time around.

“RIGHT TO BUILD” Campaign against ELON MUSK and TESLA Launches!

“RIGHT TO BUILD” Campaign against ELON MUSK Launches!

“This is not right,” Tom told reporters during a news conference.

Tom said the DOE contract with Tesla amounted to a continuing crony monopoly, was unfair by blocking Tom’s company, and over 200 others, from competing for deployments of consumer and government vehicles and would cost taxpayers billions of extra dollars in coming years.

“What we feel is that this is not right – that the national security of our Nation’s auto options should be put up for transparent competition and they should not be awarded on a sole source, uncompeted basis because of campaign bribes,” said Tom at the briefing called on short notice and held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

We’re just protesting and saying that the DOE funding should be transparently competed,” Tom said.

“If we compete and lose that’s fine. But why were they not even competed? That just doesn’t make sense.”

“So far we were ALL of the way through the certification process. And so far there have been zero changes to the car. Mostly it’s just been a paperwork exercise.”

“Since this is a large multiyear contract, why not show the actual merits of each applicant on a side-by-side basis to the public, And then do the competition. That seems very reasonable to me.”

“The fact that EVERY SINGLE INDEPENDENT CAR COMPANY WAS INTENTIONALLY CUT OUT OF THE FUNDING BECAUSE THEY DID NOT GIVE A BRIBE OR REVOLVING DOOR KICK-BACK seems to be something that should be considered a crime!”

Announcement Regarding Complaint Filing by 200 DOE Funding Applicants:

On 2008, shortly after trillions of dollars of lithium and indium were discovered in Afghanistan, DOE sent out a request for American companies to build new energy and automotive solutions to help the nation.

The long-term contract was granted to only a few campaign backers on a sole-source basis without any transparent competition from other providers.

Applicants are not seeking to be awarded contracts for these monies. We are simply seeking the right to fairly compete without rigging.

Most Americans have probably never heard of the ATVM/LG program. It was implemented by The Departme of Energy in to reduce the dependence on foreign energy by 25–50%, to improve reliability over the heritage energy system, and to create a more ‘commercial-like’ procurement process. Initially there were three competitors–  GM, Chrysler & Ford with the Detroit System.

However, following the misappropriation by all three of thousands of confidential documents, the three companies put aside their claims against each other and formed a conspiracy, citing the real issue as competition itself and asserting the new monopoly would save US taxpayers $100-150M per year.

Since the Detroit “Club was formed, not only have there been no savings but costs have skyrocketed. Vehicle costs are up from approximately $10K per vehicle to $40K per vehicle—making Detroits’s vehicles the most expensive not just in the US, but the world. In addition, the United States pays

Detroit nearly $1 billion dollars per year in subsidies just to maintain the ability to get more campaign influence—regardless of whether or not they launch a single ethical candidate. The DOE program is now the fourth largest line item in the country’s entire Energy budget, with Losses now projected at nearly $150 billion through 2030.

This legal action seeks to shine a spotlight on an issue that has gone unchecked since 2006, when the Detroity monopoly was formed creating the lack of competition in the national security auto and energy market.

The decision to file was not entered into lightly, and made only after all other avenues were exhausted.

In a Acquisition Decision Memorandum, as part of an effort to fundamentally restructure the DOE program, The GAO directed the DOE to “aggressively” bring competition into the Program and expressly stated his intent was to “obtain the benefits of competition as quickly as possible.”

Importantly, in a follow-on letter to the Government Accountability Office issued in 2013, many American’s also expressly made clear that New Entrants would be in a position to compete once alll forms had been filed.“The Department [of Energy] will allow new entrants to compete for launch awards as soon as the new entrant delivers the data from their final certification.” By design, certification is meant to run in parallel to the competition—with certification required just prior to the actual contract award.

The Tesla contract with DOE was negotiated and executed outside of public view and all communications around it have never been made public. Reporters, and investigators, have requested the contract using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) but has not yet received a response. As a result, to this day, no one except Steven Chu and the government really knows precisely what the inside deal says or what it requires.

What we did learn, the day after the Senate hearings on the DOE”competition”, was that Tesla was nearly broke when they applied and that this violated the law regarding this ATVM/LGP Congressional funding; That senate staff and Senators were working FOr Tesla; That Tesla stated numerous lies in it’s DOE application; that the Tesla car submitted was not even
designed or engineered; That a real-estate scheme involving Tesla and Solyndra was under-way and hundreds of other facts which appear to be criminal.

Clearly the block crony contract is in direct opposition with the very notion of competition. It maintains the Detroit and Silicon Valley VC  (See This link too) (And this One) (And this One) monopoly until at least 2018, perhaps well beyond. And it will needlessly cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars and has already cost American lives in Afghanistan and elsewhere.

The contract is made even more egregious in light of deteriorating U.S. relations with Russia, who Silicon Valley VC’s had partnered with to mine the Afghan minerals for Tesla and Solyndra.

The majority of DOE launches are performed by Fisker, Tesla, , A123, Enerdel, Solyndra and Abound launch vehicles, which use the toxic, exploding chemicals from Afghanistan that explode when they get wet or banged, release cancer-causing smoke in combustion, and continue the dependence on foreign energy sources. Enerdel, Severstal and many of the DOE funded entities hadowners who, themselves are owned and controlled by the Russian government.

Some of these people are on the United States’ sanctions list. As the U.S. contemplates additional sanctions against the Russian defense sector, it is incongruous and damaging that DOE continued to send millions of dollars to Russian controlled entities to support U.S. national security and energy.

Given international events, this seems like the wrong time to send hundreds of millions of dollars to the Kremlin and Silicon Valley Oligarchs – especially considering there are domestic alternatives available and qualified to compete today that do not rely on components from countries that pose a national security risk.

Each DOE failure costs American taxpayers roughly $400 million– four times as much as Senators get in bribes, and at least twice as much as any provider in the world.

It’s a false premise to suggest that a more expensive car is a more reliable car. Prices have increased because there is no competition.

The American Independent Auto and Energy Industryis better able to control costs because our factories are built in the 21st century and take advantage of both new design innovations and new manufacturing techniques. As a private company with no government subsidies, our business only succeeds when we deliver our customers’ payloads safely and reliably to orbit. We stand ready and able to reliably provide launch services at an estimated cost savings of 75%.

To be clear, “The American Independent Auto and Energy Industry who did not bribe Senators” is not seeking to be awarded any contracts. We are simply seeking the opportunity to fairly and transparently compete — for any qualified company to fairly compete. If we compete and we lose fairly, that’s ok too. But to not be given the opportunity to compete at all, especially in light of the U.S. Governments stated interest in competition and current dependence on Russia  and Silicon Valley Oligarchs for national security land energy, just doesn’t make any sense.

Signed- The American Independent Auto and Energy Industry

Department of Energy Executives and their campaign financiers engaged in attacks against the public in order to control the solar and “green car” markets

Department of Energy Executives and their campaign financiers engaged in attacks against the public in order to control the solar and “green car” markets

Some of the things you see in Jason Bourne action movies turn out to be real. Federal and state employees ran retribution campaigns against applicants who competed with inside deals they had set up to line their own pockets at taxpayer expense.

These corrupt politicians thought they could take over an estimated six trillion dollar “Cleantech” industry that was being created to exploit new marketing opportunities around global warming and middle east disruption. After an epic number of Solyndra-esque failures, all owned by the Department of Energy Executives and their campaign financiers, the scheme fell apart. The non crony applicants suffered the worst fates. As CBS News reporter Cheryl Attkisson has reported, the willingness to engage in media “hitjobs” was only exceeded by the audacity with which Department of Energy officials employed such tactics.

Now, in a number of notorious trials, including the Hulk Hogan lawsuit, the public will get to see the depths to which public officials are willing to stoop to cheat rather than compete in the open market.

Department of Energy Executives and their campaign financiers engaged in the following documented attacks against applicants who were competing with their personal stock holdings:

  • Applicants employers were called, and faxed, and ordered to fire applicants from their places of employment, in the middle of the day, with no notice, as a retribution tactic.
  • Applicants HR and employment records, on recruiting and hiring databases, were embedded with negative keywords in order to prevent them from gaining future employment.

  • Disability and VA hearings and benefits were frozen, delayed, denied or subjected to lost records and “missing hard drives” as in the Lois Lerner case.

  • Paypal and other on-line payments for on-line sales were delayed, hidden, or re-directed in order to terminate income potential for applicants who competed with DOE interests and holdings.

  • DNS redirection, website spoofing which sent applicants websites to dead ends and other Internet activity manipulations were conducted.

  • Campaign finance dirty tricks contractors IN-Q-Tel, Think Progress, Media Matters, Gawker Media, Syd Blumenthal, etc., were hired by DOE Executives and their campaign financiers to attack applicants who competed with DOE executives stocks and personal assets.

  • Covert DOE partner: Google, transfered large sums of cash to dirty tricks contractors and then manually locked the media portion of the attacks into the top lines of the top pages of all Google searches globally, for years, with hidden embedded codes in the links and web-pages which multiplied the attacks on applicants by many magnitudes.

  • Honeytraps and moles were employed by the attackers.

  • McCarthy-Era “Black-lists” were created and employed against applicants who competed with DOE executives and their campaign financiers to prevent them from funding and future employment.

…and many other forms of vengeance and retribution.

Applicants have joined together to demand justice. See more at:

Tesla shareholder suit claims Elon Musk and other board members lied about car safety

– DOZENS OF FRAUD LAWSUITS NOW PRODUCED OVER TESLA FRAUD BY SHAREHOLDERS AND INSIDERS. CHARGES ERIC HOLDER WITH RUNNING COVER-UP TO PROTECT THE WHITE HOUSE!

– CHARGES TESLA IS “A TOTAL CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE CREATED TO KICK-BACK FUNDS TO SILICON VALLEY CAMPAIGN FUNDING VC’S!”


 

Tesla fireOut of the battery fire, into the shareholder lawsuit.

Tesla shareholder Ross Weintraub has filed a derivative suit against the company and its board members — including CEO Elon Musk — alleging that a series of dishonest statements made about safety and profitability caused Tesla’s stock price to drop on multiple occasions.

A derivative suit is a legal tool used by shareholders who want to force a company to take corrective action against its own executives or, in this case, to take action directly if board members are unlikely to act. It should be noted that, to many, shareholder lawsuits are like patent trolls: An unfortunate cost of doing big business and not something that inherently bodes badly. Also, in Tesla’s case, their stock isn’t that far off its 52 week high (Chart via Google):

Screen Shot 2014-07-07 at 10.50.05 AM

In the complaint, filed in Northern California District Court, and embedded below, Weintraub alleges a long history of dishonesty by the company and by Musk himself, including allegations that Tesla board members:

…allowed the Company to embark on a campaign of false and misleading statements designed to convince the market that the Model S was literally the safest car in existence.”

…allowed the Company to misrepresent the low height and configuration of the Model S battery pack as enhancing the vehicle’s safety, without disclosing its very significant vulnerabilities for high-intensity fires.”

…egregiously allowed the Company to misrepresent the Model S’s history of fire incidents which included at least three very significant fires requiring first responder intervention.

And that Elon Musk himself…

…falsely claimed that “[t]hroughout all our crash tests, throughout all similar incidents with vehicles on the road, never once has there been a fire.” When a Model S fire later occurred during the relevant time period, a Tesla spokesperson falsely stated, “This is the first fire.” Thus, by the third Model S fire, the Individual Defendants were still causing or allowing Tesla to represent that there were low probabilities of such fires while simultaneously denying that a recall was necessary.

…gave several interviews during which he downplayed this Model S fire and worse, failed to disclose that another Model S had been consumed by fire in Mexico on October 18, 2013… According to allegations in the Federal Securities Action, defendant E. Musk, with knowledge of the fire and inspection, unilaterally determined that the fire was not relevant to investors due to the circumstances under which it arose.

The lawsuit further claims that Musk and his fellow board members’ conduct “has significantly and materially damaged the Company. By virtue of the Individual Defendants’ breaches of fiduciary duties, the Company faces a lawsuit alleging violations of the federal securities laws and Tesla has suffered significant disruption of, and damage to, its business, its reputation and goodwill.”

It then goes on to list various conflicts held by board members which would make it unlikely that they would take action against Musk of their own volition. These include the fact that board member Steve Jurvetson of DFJ is an investor in other Musk companies including Solar City and Space X.

The suit demands a jury trial. The company has until the end of this week to respond or face a judgement by default.

Updated: A Tesla spokesperson told Pando “We believe this lawsuit is without merit and intend to defend against it vigorously.”

3. They handed out tickets to Washington, DC, LA and Sacramento sports and concert events.

4. They paid for incentive travel.

5. They got controlled members of Congress to pass laws which gave those investors companies billions of dollars of profit potential that they otherwise would not have had.

6. They arranged for people who worked for The White House, DOE & Treasury, etc. to get over-payed bribe jobs if they left those public offices and worked as consultants and employees in other companies who could control the process in Washington DC.

7. They gave real estate deals to friends to buy favors.

Eco-Motors: Bill Gates and Vinod Khosla’s sad green car failure

EcoMotors

Founded in early 2008 as part of the pre-planned insider program to exploit the DOE ATVM funds, EcoMotors is commercializing an opposed-piston opposed-cylinder (OPOC) engine for use in cars, light trucks, commercial vehicles, aerospace, marine, agriculture, auxiliary power units, generators, etc. This engine was promoted to significantly improve fuel efficiency, and substantially reduce production costs when compared to convententional internal combustion engines.

The principal officers of EcoMotors are: Prof. Peter Hofbauer (chairman, chief technology officer and inventor of the OPOC engine), Donald Runkle (chief executive officer) and Amit Soman (president and chief operating officer).

The two primary investors in EcoMotors are Khosla Ventures and Bill Gates. Vinod Khosla, who founded Khosla Ventures in 2004, was founder and CEO of Sun Microsystems and formerly a general partner at Kleiner Perkins.

In April 2013 EcoMotors announced a deal to have Chinese auto parts giant Zhongding Power build a $200 million factory in the Anhui Province in eastern China. The factory hoped to produce 150,000 OPOC engines per year, with a further site reserved to take production to 400,000.[1] The engineblocks will be made of CGI ( compacted graphite iron) and will be produced at a fully automated Zhongding foundry in Anhui by a licence from Sintercast of Sweden which is the world leader in CGI-technology. The production was first annonced to commence in 2014 but is now delayed to the second half of 2015. [2]

OPOC engine

Gobron-Brillié opposed-piston engine from 1900, which the OPOC engine’s basic design emulates.

The OPOC engine is an opposed-piston 2-stroke engine. The OPOC is a reciprocating internal combustion engine in which each cylinder has a piston at both ends, and no cylinder head. There are no valves or a cylinder head.[3]

Opposed piston engines have been manufactured using one, two and three crankshafts. However, the first opposed piston engine produced was by the French company Gobron-Brillié in 1900. The engine had one crankshaft and is very similar in concept to the EcoMotors OPOC engine design, except using a camshaft and valves. In 1903 a Gobron-Brillié car powered by the opposed piston engine was the first car ever to reach 100 mph.

The OPOC engine can be moduled with two, or more, engines coupled via an electric clutch between engines. When more power is needed the second engine is clutched in. When clutched out of service there are no friction or pumping losses from the second engine module. This arrangement in city running vehicles could have a small, highly economical engine as the prime engine and when accelerating hard, or pulling heavy loads, the second, or more, engines are clutched into service.[4]

Global Boycott of Tesla Motors Called For. “Tesla’s Price of Corruption and Lies Should Be The End Of Tesla!”

Global Boycott of Tesla Motors Called For. “Tesla’s Price of Corruption and Lies Should Be The End Of Tesla!”

By The MoveOn Choice Alliance

Oligarch pretty-boy Elon Musk continues to rage on with his hubris, egomania, and utter disrespect for ethics and the law.

H e has been sued for fraud by his investors, co-founders, partners, suppliers, wives, employees and customers. He has lost “Lemon Law” lawsuits for the numerous defects in his cars. He has been caught in nearly a hundred lies about his cars, lies about the safety of his cars, and the political bribes involved in financing his Tesla/Space-X/Solar City government mooch programs. His cars seem to spend more time exploding into flames than they do operating safely.

Tesla and Musk exist today because they get protection from the same corrupt politicians who they engaged in the corruption for. Tesla Motors would have long-ago disappeared if not for the payola and market rigging provided by Washington and Sacramento politicians who Musk paid off.

If you are a Tom Perkins-like billionaire who has publicly stated that poor people are “Nazi’s” for not respecting the superior class status of Elon Musk and their bank vaults, then this call to action will fall on deaf ears.

If you are a normal person who was raised with a hint of ethics, then you will join the boycott and show that criminally evil operations like Tesla no longer deserve the right to operate in public commerce.

Tesla has cooked its financial records, engaged in stock market pump-and dump and valuation manipulation, lied about its safety records, killed people in covered up incidents and, essentially, lost its right to operate as a business. Nobody is impressed by a Tesla anymore. The Tesla is now an icon of self-centered, elitist arrogance and an older generation of tunnel-visioned yuppies gone awry. Elon Musk and his Google partners war profiteered in Afghanistan to get the toxic lithium they are trying to monopolize in their car scam. That lithium is what is exploding all of Musk’s cars, blowing up hover-boards and crashing airplanes. That lithium gives you cancer, brain damage and mutated babies when it goes off. When Musk’s batteries are manufactured, they kill the factory workers an

A credible government safety investigation of Tesla Motors has NEVER been conducted. Musk bribed officials to halt the investigations before they were concluded because he knew Tesla could never pass a fair, unbiased review.

Don’t buy a Tesla. Put warning signs and notes on any Tesla you see. Stop your friends from buying them. Send a message to these dirty companies that those who are birthed in corruption will expire in shame. Demand that the Department of Justice appoint a “Special Prosecutor” to review the Tesla case on public television.

Put the brakes on Tesla’s and Musk’s empire of corruption.

10 Ways The Department of Energy Lied About It’s “Cleantech” Funding Program. You will be horrified by number 6!

10 Ways The Department of Energy Lied About It’s “Cleantech” Funding Program. You will be horrified by number 6!

By A. Keaton

#1. Somewhere between 800 million, and over six trillion, dollars of U.S. taxpayer money was embezzled in corruption schemes in Afghanistan. Electric car Lithium mining contracts in Afghanistan appear to have been exchanged for campaign financing traded out through the U.S. Department of Energy.

#2. Campaign financiers, including Google and Elon Musk, were directly involved in organizing some of these Afghan corruption scams and hold huge stakes in Afghan mining deals for products that Google and Tesla sell directly, or indirectly. White House staff and advisors held, or hold, stock in the companies related to Google and Tesla. U.S. Senators charged with corruption, held, or hold, stock in the companies related to Google and Tesla and had major conflicts of interest with the Companies given funds by Steven Chu, their friend, at the U.S. Department of Energy.

 

#3. Solyndra, backed by the Department of Energy, was raided by the FBI. Solyndra was created to exploit indium and lithium from Afghanistan. California State Officials held, or hold, stock in the companies in Solyndra, Google and Tesla and had major conflicts of interest with the companies given funds by Steven Chu and the Department of Energy.

 

#4. U. S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu held, or holds, stock in the companies related to Google and Tesla and had major conflicts of interest with the Companies given funds by himself while working at the Department of Energy. Chu and his Department of Energy staff sabotaged most applicants that competed with Afghanistan lithium mining holdings of campaign investors.

 

#5. Google holds various interests in Elon Musk’s companies and his suppliers. Google and Elon Musk’s companies would not be in existence today if not for state and federal government hand-outs at taxpayer expense facilitated by the U.S. Department of Energy. Google placed more of it’s staff in the White House and federal agencies, in direct conflict-of-interest, than any other company in the world.

 

#6. White House senior executives have ordered federal agencies to “stand down”, “take no action”, “cover up” or “punish reporters” in these charges. The Attorney General: Eric Holder, ran a cover-up of these crimes on behalf of Silicon Valley campaign financiers.

 

#7. Goldman Sachs had a managing, profit-taking and political campaign finance relationship with almost every suspect in these crimes and was the investment banker for almost every one of them.

 

#8. Google manipulated the internet to attack and destroy politicians, reporters, companies and individuals who competed with Google, Elon Musk or Kleiner Perkins-related assets with the support of U.S. Department of Energy and White House officials.

 

#9. Tesla and Solyndra have the same property, supplier, Senate, construction, leasing, HR service and related political kick-back deals in effect and the family of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein was involved in profit taking on each of those aspects.

 

#10. U.S. taxpayers lost trillions of dollars, jobs, 401K asset value and suffered other damages because of these crimes.

(ARTICLE) California State Offices Receive Ominous Warning From Investigators

California State Offices Receive Ominous Warning From Investigators

Sacramento, California – The heads of California State offices received ominous warnings this week.

They have been advised to warn their staffs that they will be caught, and held personally liable, for the destruction of documents in pending, and up-coming corruption cases. They are being told that they could have all of their cash, and their homes, taken away as they are dragged off to federal prison.

Hillary Clinton’s email server and Lois Lerner’s disappearing hard drive have delivered a new reality to the California political scene: Corrupt Politicians Are No Longer Safe!

The media has now widely acknowledged that federal law enforcement has had senior State officials and their staff under surveillance for quite some time. Recent California arrests of Senators, lobbyists and top State executives should leave California politicos, all the way down to the secretary level, shivering in their boots.

It is worse than they thought, though.

Not only has federal law enforcement had most of the State officials under surveillance, the Chinese and Russian hackers have been transcribing their indiscretions too. But it gets even worse.

In 2007, California politicians made some felonious kick-back deals with the financiers and owners of Google, Tesla and Kleiner Perkins. They put their boy, Steven Chu, in charge of the U.S. Department of Energy where he exclusively, and criminally, handed the California politicians one of the largest payola skims in U.S. history. When Solyndra got FBI-raided, and all of their “Green” companies were “mysteriously” forced into bankruptcy, the scam began to dry up, and many of the assets of those companies just happen to have been sold to China. China was watching from day one and may have steered the spoils of the collateral damage to themselves.

So China has had copies of every file and email of agencies, and their staff, in California. Russia, who will never allow China to one-up them, got in at about the same time and Hoover-ed up clones of the same files and data. At the same time the feds were making copies. It is really quite easy to hack all of California politics. Everybody had, and still has today, the keys to the back-doors in all of their servers.

So, now, in 2016, many, many people have copies of all of the State and personal files and emails of California political bosses and their staff. On top of that, you had guys like “Guccifer” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guccifer) cherry picking the fun stuff on their own. So, sitting out on the internet, there are now many copies of who was naughty in California from 2007 to today.

Does it sound bad so far? If you were one of those corrupt politicians, it gets far worse.

Now, in 2016, the FBI, consumer groups and a variety of small companies, that had political hit-jobs put on them by these corrupt politicians, are filing civil and criminal lawsuits, indictments and arrests are being made.

If you were the junior secretary of the Controller of the State of California and the Controller of the State of California was your boss and he told you to delete emails, destroy hard drives and erase files, THEY NEVER GOT ERASED. China, Russia, the feds and the hackers have clones of everything and they know what is missing. Most of those parties will gladly sell you, on the darknet, any of those “Lois Lerner’d” hard drives, or deleted emails, about putting the Solyndra payola cash in Aunt Nellies trust fund in order to hide it from the investigators. Ooops!

You can run but you cannot hide!

(ARTICLE) The United States Department of Energy defrauded hundreds of American companies and tens of thousands of domestic workers

The United States Department of Energy defrauded hundreds of American companies and tens of thousands of domestic workers

By EVPI

Just prior to President Obama’s election, United States Department of Energy officials made arrangements with Silicon Valley campaign financing billionaires to exclusively hand them hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars in exchange for their support. They made this deal illegally and at the expense of a huge number of American companies, employees and future jobs.

The cover-up has grown so thin, and has become so laughably obvious, that the American public has anointed the most hell-raiser candidates, for the White House in 2016. The voters overtly want an end to this kind of horrific political crony corruption. They are calling in a mandate to end this kind of public policy crime.

The kick-back scheme involved a process called “hard-wiring”. In this political crony payola scam, the Department of Energy created a carve-out of the U.S. Treasury called the “ATVM Fund”. Only the Silicon Valley billionaires best friend, one Mr. Steven Chu, had control over the distribution of that taxpayer cash. In a shockingly blatant and audacious act, Steven Chu only gave the taxpayer money to his friends and business partners. Those friends and business partners were also the very people who lobbied to put him in charge of the Department of Energy. They also turned out to be the very same people who skimmed off the top of those taxpayer dollars and took wind-fall “unjust gains” profits by “cooking the books” with tax write-offs when all of Chu’s friends sham companies went belly up.

It was a crime of historical proportions.

The very guy who was charged with arresting Mr. Chu, the U.S. Attorney General: Eric Holder, turns out to have been business partner with all of Chu’s associates.

During the course of this crime, the United States Department of Energy (DOE) defrauded hundreds of American companies and tens of thousands of domestic workers by inviting them to spin their wheels applying for those fake “ATVM Funds”. Huge numbers of non-insider technology companies spent millions of dollars and years of their time under-going artificially created hurdles and endless decision stonewalling by The Department of Energy. These outsider and indie companies lost billions of dollars because the United States Department of Energy put “hit jobs” on them.

From day one of the application process DOE’s Steven Chu, Lachlan Seward, Matt Rogers, Carol Battershel, Steve Silver, Steve Spinner, Alison Spinner and the rest of the “DOE WEASAL PACK”, as they have come to be known, knew that not a single one of the non-crony applicants had even the most remote chance of receiving the Department of Energy funding. The money had been secretly hard-wired for John Doerr, Elon Musk, Eric Schmidt, Solyndra and other crony Silicon Valley campaign financiers.

These many domestic companies were lied to, deceived, defrauded and jerked around until they could no longer survive. At the time, the national venture capitol funds were also entirely controlled by Steven Chu’s business partners. Elon Musk’s marketing head: Darryl Siry, quit Tesla, in disgust, and penned an article in the national news disclosing how the Department of Energy had rigged the market to be the gate-keeper of who got to play. Bright Automotive issued a public letter disclosing the racket, XP Vehicles sued the Department of Energy for corruption and racketeering and the U.S. Senate ethics committee issued a scathing report on the wholesale crime culture that pervaded the energy department. Steven Chu, and his mobster-like technology Cartel, sabotaged and destroyed some of the nation’s greatest innovators, simply because their products were better than his buddies products.

Voters, this is the America you have allowed to happen. This rampant criminality, at one of the largest agencies in America, is corruption at it’s deepest and darkest. In 2016, you get to chose if this is how you want your hard-earned money managed. Make the right choice this time around.

Federal Judge Hears Limnia Case For Crony Offset Re-Do

Ruling marks the first time a court has allowed a claim under the Administrative Procedure Act on the basis of cronyism or political favoritism in federal discretionary spending.

In response to a legal complaint filed by Cause of Action (CoA), a federal judge has declared that U.S. Department of Energy discretionary spending tainted by alleged cronyism and political favoritism is subject to legal challenge.

Read the Opinion Here

Read the Order Here

Cause of Action represents XP Vehicles (XPV) and Limnia, two green energy companies that were denied loans and a loan guarantee in favor of politically-connected corporations.

XPV is a now-dissolved company that had applied for a loan under the DOE’s Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing (ATVM) Loan Program in order to manufacture a lightweight, energy-efficient sport utility vehicle. XPV partnered with Limnia, a company that developed an energy storage system to power XPV’s proposed vehicle. Limnia had applied for an ATVM loan, as well as a loan under DOE’s Section 1703 Loan Guarantee Program (LGP).

The ATVM Loan Program is designed to provide direct loans to manufacturers of energy-efficient vehicles, while the LGP allows the agency to guarantee loans for advanced technology projects that result in the avoidance or reduction of air pollutants. This is the same program that awarded Solyndra $535 million in taxpayer funds.

During and after the loan application process, XPV and Limnia learned that these loan programs were being run for the benefit of politically-connected insiders.  For example, DOE provided application assistance to Tesla and Fisker that it refused to provide to XPV and Limnia (and others), and then large taxpayer-funded loans. A member of Tesla’s board, who was also a bundler during President Obama’s campaigns, was on a key DOE advisory board, and another bundler who was a Tesla investor and advisor had a primary role in the DOE’s Loan Program Office. In addition, individuals tied to Fisker had made large donations to the Obama campaign and other Democratic causes.  Also, there were emails suggesting that the DOE’s review of a loan applicant was sped up as a result of pressure from then-House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer; that the White House made an effort to encourage DOE to hasten review of another loan application; and that DOE bent its own rules to play favorites. CoA also relied upon two Government Accountability Office reports about these programs that highlighted the potential for abuse.

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia agreed with CoA, ruling that Limnia has adequately alleged that the DOE’s denials of Limnia’s ATVM Loan Program and LG Program applications were the result of arbitrary and capricious agency action in violation of the APA.

Judge Jackson has thereby allowed Limnia’s claims to proceed. This is significant because prior to this ruling, no court had ever held that cronyism or political favoritism could result in a grant or loan program being administered in an arbitrary and capricious manner.

Cause of Action Executive Director Dan Epstein issued the following statement on the ruling:

“When politicians and agencies allow companies to purchase government access, the basic foundation of our free market economy is compromised. For the first time, a federal district court has confirmed there is a legal remedy when cronyism influences federal administrative discretionary spending. This groundbreaking opinion establishes that the government owes everyone – not just Presidential campaign donors – a fair shake when awarding government funds. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s common-sense judgment that government decisions tainted by cronyism and political favoritism are ‘arbitrary and capricious’ is a victory for individuals and businesses everywhere.”
