Unlike the narrative concerning the non-existent potential collusion with a foreign government attempting to interfere with our elections, The Baltimore Post has uncovered a real threat from an overseas company that follows Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and her doomsday philosophy of the “Green New Deal.”

In our featured photo, the only face missing from the proverbial “Squad” is our RINO (Republican in name only), Governor Larry Hogan.

Folks, let’s take a look at the beneficiary of a grandiose announcement about Tradepoint Atlantic’s newest venture, which will fleece more of our precious tax dollars in the form of corporate cronyism coupled with a systematic complete lack of transparency.

As seen in the following video, the issue at hand involves an overseas wind turbine company.

This lates debacle will ultimately cost the taxpayers of Baltimore County, as well as many more across the State of Maryland. Adding insult to injury, a good number of our federal tax dollars also will be blown away by AOC’s liberal attempt to push her Green New Deal agenda.

We saw how the previous administration’s failed policies of “Green Energy” deals went awry and cost taxpayers $2.2 billion.

Here are some cold-hearted facts that go to the heart of this false propaganda courtesy of Tucker Carlson:

  • Federal government policies that could impact commercial fishermen and possibly put many of them out of business due to the location of these wind farms.
  • A recent study by English scientists discovered that the noise generated by wind farms impact sea life, such as whales that sometimes end up beached on our shores.
  • An English scientist also stated that commercial vessels will be prohibited from operating within the confines of the wind farms due to navigational issues.
  • Massive amounts of lobbyist dollars in Congress are creating pathways for overseas wind power companies to fleece U.S. taxpayers.
  • One of the largest U.S. wind farms is planned for Martha’s Vineyard off the East Coast. The size of this project is larger than the entire state of Rhode Island.

In addition to those issues, Rep. Andy Harris also commented on overseas companies fleecing U.S. taxpayers:

Propaganda, like an article that appeared in Yahoo Finance, reveals the influence these overseas companies have over our politicians. That leads to our pols forking over bucketfuls of U.S. taxpayer dollars to bolster the bottom line of the foreign entities.

A brand-new development from the company slated to set up shop at TPA should cause some additional concern. It was revealed that the current CEO of Orsted just stepped down:

The Providence Journal reports Jeffrey Grybowski, of North Kingstown, decided to resign from Orsted U.S. Offshore Wind after nine months as co-CEO.

In reading Councilman Todd Crandell’s Facebook post below, one would think the TPA deal will have a positive impact on employment prospects for the 7th District.

However, as the saying goes, “The devil is in the details.”

According to other media sources, the deal will create 913 temporary positions during development and construction, along with 484 permanent positions at the facility.

Not only did Councilman Crandell get caught up in yet another corporate fleecing of our tax dollars, but other politicians jumped on the bandwagon as well. Other media companies have taken issue with Councilman Crandell’s post, as well as one from Delegate Ric Metzgar.

Meanwhile, The Post received complaints that Sen. Salling may have been AWOL recently, neglecting his duties in Annapolis. We will conduct a separate investigation into that issue, not to mention a potential mess pertaining to residency requirements.

In the final analysis of this absolute lunacy, do our political leaders actually believe that the jobs created by these corporate welfare projects will have any positive impact on Maryland’s citizens?

Our answer, based on simple logic, is hell no!

To wrap this article with a nice neat bow, we want to share the following response received from Press Secretary T. J. Smith:

  • Where there any financial considerations in the form of tax credits or loans regarding this issue?

No requests for assistance have been made to Baltimore County to date.

  • How many total jobs at Tradepoint Atlantic employee Baltimore County residents? This relates to the $78 million loan to TPA.

TPA has estimated a minimum of 40% of all jobs will be held by Baltimore County residents.  

(Publisher’s Note: Realize that TPA is the landlord and not the actual employer of most of these employees. So that data is not compiled by TPA.)
