A Two-man company, in tiny town Montana
got a $300 million Puerto Rico Contract
…directly connected to Trump officials and GOP donors.
Can you spell Zinke?
The bizarre decision to instead hire a tiny for-profit company is drawing heavy scrutiny from Congress
and comes amid concerns about bankrupt Puerto Rico’s spending as it seeks to provide relief to
its 3.4 million residents,
the great majority of whom remain without power a month after the storm.
#45 tapped Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke, who was raised in Whitefish, to be the nation’s next Secretary of the Interior,
He is responsible for (mis) management of federal land and natural resources.
The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority recently signed the contract with Montana’s Whitefish Energy… At the time, the firm had two full-time employees. The contract was awarded without a competitive bidding process.
Cruz, the mayor of Puerto Rico’s largest city, described the Montana company as inadequate and said there appears to be a lack of “due diligence” behind the contract.
“These men ask for just the same thing, fairness, and fairness only. This, so far as in my power, they, and all others, shall have.”
Trump Gives his Campaign Manager Sam Clovis USDA Position
You know what they say, ”Just cuz you was born in Kansas, don’t mean you know beans about Agriculture.’
However, Clovis was national co-chair of the Trump-Pence campaign in the 2016 presidential election.
Clovis served in the Air Force for 25 years; and was a campaign manager. Thousands are scratching their heads: Sam Who for USDA?
He may know food – Sam is a large man – he doesn’t know Ag.
The Department of Agriculture was authorized a budget for fiscal year 2015 of $139.7 billion.
USDA Many of the programs concerned with the distribution of food and nutrition to people of America and providing nourishment as well as nutrition education to those in need. Activities in this program include the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program,
In addition to his lack of experience in food and ag policy — Clovis has also been a consistent climate change denier and has ties to the Russia scandal plaguing the Trump administration.
Get this: Clovis has been serving as a USDA adviser for #45, in January signing off on a memo ‘ordering researchers to stop issuing press releases’ about their work in a possible effort to censor information about it. Really, Sam?
People want to know: What does Sam Clovis know about:
Farmers across America and scores of government officials say they are scratching their heads, their skin is prickling, they are disgusted by the old boys network and blatant nepotism of Trump choosing an inept, ill prepared radio host to head up an integral arm of the government.
