Last year our US Attorney General was threatening to file criminal racketeering charges against private citizens for mockery of state science. Last week the new administration announced the repeal of the ENERGY STAR mandate, essentially shutting down the EPA’s Department of Junk Science. Elections have consequences!
President Trump has officially begun the deconstruction of the ENERGY STAR program, ending one of the most corrupt federal programs in US history. Repealing the ENERGY STAR mandate represents one of the most significant government reforms in decades, and a huge boost for science, education and commerce.
The EPA owns the ENERGY STAR brand, which is allegedly producing multi-billion dollar revenues in Global markets from ‘certified’ energy-efficiency. Just don’t ask to see the evidence, or the government might throw you in jail. And I mean that literally!
Thankfully President Trump just took Draining The Swamp to a whole new level. The repeal of the ENERGY STAR mandate is historic, which is why mainstream media must be in a complete state of panic. The ENERGY STAR mandate served as a Pay To Play toll-booth for all government contracting and services for decades. In terms of economic opportunity for the small business community in America, this is totally off the chart.
ENERGY STAR is arguably the most corrupt federal program in US history, a true National Disgrace which has inflicted more damage on America’s economy, scientific, educational and legal systems than an entire army of Bernie Madoff’s and John Beale’s.
Built entirely on myth, fraudulent scientific research and bogus technical reports promoted by the media, this secretive program has been mired in scandal and controversy since day one.
ENERGY STAR’s big break came rather suddenly in 2009, when EPA began boasting that their products save 25-50% more electrical energy than other identical products. Apparently EPA scientist were somehow able to infuse a ‘Social Justice’ component onto the electrons flowing in ENERGY STAR’s certified products that don’t exist in the rest of the universe. Or so it seems. No technological breakthroughs were involved in this miracle, only the reshuffling of words on paper were required to create this rare commodity.
The Animal Farm philosophy of “All Electrons Are Equal/ But Some Electrons More Equal Than Others” has brought great prosperity to civil society members. But now many fear mankind will return to the math and science of olden days, sweeping aside the consensus-based policies which are the centerpiece of President Obama’s legacy, and undermining his future aspirations in Venture Capitalism
It’s entire financial value can be traced directly to a group of government bureaucracies calling themselves the Poised For Profits Partnership (P4PP). The 12 government agencies that formed P4PP conducted tens of billions of dollars worth of ‘scientific research’ on behalf of ENERGY STAR, with the bulk of all financial benefits flowing directly to the EPA’s Billionaires Club, a group identified in a 2014 Senate Report.
This is so good for our economy that words escape me at the moment, but I can tell you a little about arguably the most corrupt federal program in history. This EPA brand literally invented the Junk Science industry, producing the ‘Clock Boy’ type science that turned government energy efficiency into a multi-billion dollar slush fund for the EPA’s Billionaires Club.
The ENERGY STAR is virtually the ‘Goose That Lays The Golden Eggs’ for political elites at secretive non-profit groups like the Energy Foundation and Prosperity Partnership, which are controlled entirely by the political class with zero accountability to taxpayers.
Its important to understand the history behind the ENERGY STAR program, because it exposes the multiple opportunities that will now be open to honest business interest. This is huge, corrupt bureaucracies and their public/private partnerships are being dissolved, opening up competition in contracting and services at every level of government in this nation.
Tens of billions of our tax-dollars were funneled to the Globalist that turned China into an economic powerhouse building ENERGY STAR products which are now mandated for use by governments in the USA, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand and the European Community.
Only political insiders associated with EPA or UN non-profits were ever allowed to market, or have access to ENERGY STAR products and services. Now entire financial empires are about to come crashing down… [continue reading]
