Joe Biden has hired John Podesta to be the new Clean Energy Czar [Announcement Here] citing his experience in progressive causes. Hilariously, the New York Times is running with a justification that Podesta holds some prior experience in advancing the climate change agenda. [See Here]
…John Podesta had nothing to do with the Obama-era clean energy initiatives or energy spending programs. Podesta was inserted into Obama’s orbit in the second term (2013) specifically to watch out for Hillary Clinton’s interests when she left to run for President. Podesta later joined her in 2015 and took over the strategy team.
Bottom line, John Podesta is being now being hired to divvy up the $316 billion in Green New Deal money recently authorized by congress. That is what Podesta specializes in, the distribution of taxpayer money to DNC allied groups and networks in advance of the 2022 midterms. Podesta, Hillary’s fixer, is a bagman, nothing more.
Podesta will now take the $316 billion and distribute the funds according to political priorities. Anyone who says anything different is being intellectually dishonest and obtuse in the extreme.link
