Does Bloom Have A 2 Year Stack Life

Bloom claims a five year stack life.  Public data from Santa Clara County point to a two year stack life.  Linus Pauling said "facts are the air of scientists, without them you can never fly."   I believe Linus would agree with me that Bloom is a Greenwashed Bloomdoggle.

In Delaware where Bloom admits they have a shortage of spare parts, their operations and maintenance costs also point to a two year stack life.

Colin Powell And Morality




Colin Powell is not sure Trump can be a moral leader.   The Thermantor is very sure Powell cannot be a moral leader.   Powell is up to his nose in the Bloom Energy Bloomdoggle.

He was hired by Deep State John Doerr to twist the arms of governments both foreign and domestic for the Bloomdoggle.

He was given 100,000 shares in Bloom Energy for a total payment of $10 on February 25, 2009.  He and Bloom set the "market price" of the 100,000 shares at $175,000 for Powell's 2009 tax return.  This is $1.75 a share.

The problem was that on February 25, 2009 Bloom and Advanced Equities set a price of $18.54 a share for Advanced Equities to sell shares to investors in the Series F.

The SEC shut down Advanced Equities for fraudulently selling shares to investors in that Series F of Bloom.

Now Powell has a tax problem.   The IRS quickly stated in a letter to me that there was no tax problem.   I then wrote to the IRS and the heads of the SEC that in that case Powell and Bloom had a stock fraud problem by selling shares at $18.54 that were only worth $1.75.   The stock fraud problem is well over a hundred million dollars.  The tax problem was only $1.6 million plus interest and fines.

The IRS then quickly sent me the form to apply for the finders fee in unreported income.

Who knows if the IRS will do anything, but for sure we know that Colin Powell has a "morality" problem.  He is the last person on the planet who should opine about "moral leaders".   The question by Fareed was entrapment and we have Crooked Colin on tape questioning the morality of someone who had unearned income when he was only three years old.

Colin Powell was 72 years old when he and Bloom either conspired to cheat on taxes or screw investors in the Series F.

72 is 24 times 3 and Colin Powell is 24 times less of a moral leader than Donald Trump.  Donald Trump is making the USAF Great Again.  Donald Trump is a 24 star General not a 4 Star General.

Kavanaugh's Environmental Record and Lack of Judicial Temperament

The recent spectacle on display in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings is an unfortunate distraction from the substantive task of determining Kavanaugh's judicial suitability for the Supreme Court. In other words, would he be a fair judge? We should look to Kavanaugh's judicial record on a number of issues to determine the answer.

On the environment, Kavanaugh repeatedly sides with industry and against regulatory authority. Kavanaugh's preference to side with industry is made clear in his judicial opinions on cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He sided with industry 89% of the time for less clean air and water and 95% of the time against species protections.

A striking example of his apparent bias is the contrast between his opinions on White Stallion Energy Center v. EPA and EME Homer City Generation v. EPA.  In the White Stallion case, Kavanaugh believed that costs must be considered when considering them would lead to less stringent standards; but in EME Homer, he said costs cannot be considered when considering them would lead to more stringent standards[1].

If Kavanaugh were to be confirmed, his pro-industry bias would shift the balance of the court away from environmental protection. Based on his record of judicial opinions, he would likely uphold recent weakening of environmental regulations, such Trump administration intentions to replace the Clean Power Plan and dismantle the Clean Water Rule.

More relevant than questions about what Kavanaugh did or didn't do 36 years ago in high school are questions about his judicial temperament from the American Bar Association during his nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals and apparent pro-industry bias in his recent judicial decisions. These questions are the ones that actually matter in Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Who will ask them?
