The Biden Energy Dept. announced on Thursday that it will provide roughly $2 billion to facilities in swing states like Pennsylvania or Michigan that are at risk of closing or going out of business if they switch to electric cars.

In an effort to integrate industrial and climate change policies, the Biden administration is utilizing $2 billion from the Inflation Reduction Act, sometimes known as a climate change law.

The money will support initiatives in eight states, including conversions and retooling, in order to produce electric cars and other associated components.

Jennifer Granholm told reporters on Thursday that the news “is a cornerstone of the Biden administration’s industrial policy, which is a strategy to bring about manufacturing and employment back to America after years of offshore.”

Nevertheless, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, and Virginia are among the swing states where some of the 11 sites that will get cash are located. The financing will go to Stellantis, General Motors, Harley-Davidson, Volvo, and suppliers, including American Auto Parts. According to Biden officials, this will guarantee that over 15,000 union workers maintain their jobs and generate over 3,000 new ones.

Granholm claimed that it would contribute to the yearly production of more than a million “electrified” light-duty cars, including electric and hybrid models.

Autonews stated:

“GM’s Lansing Grand River facility will receive the biggest award of all. It will be one of many GM facilities, along with Orion Assembly in Michigan, Factory Zero in Detroit, Spring Hill Manufacturing in Fairfax Assembly in Kansas, Tennessee, and Toledo Propulsion Systems in Ohio, that are capable of producing EVs and their components. In the autumn, GM pledged to invest $1.25 billion at the Lansing facility toward future electric vehicle manufacturing as part of the automaker’s new agreement with the UAW.”

Furthermore, according to President Joe Biden, “creating a clean energy economy needs to be a win-win for union workers and automakers” in Georgia and Michigan.

The car industry would normally lose money on making and marketing electric vehicles, so the handouts to the manufacturers are another way that the Biden administration is trying to encourage them to keep doing so.

According to research by the Boston Consulting Group, American automakers lose $6,000 for each $50,000 electric car they sell in the country.

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) grilled Fed Chair Jerome Powell on the effect of increased immigration on driving up property prices while simultaneously lowering salaries for working and middle-class Americans.

During a Banking Committee meeting, Vance asked Powell about the impact of mass immigration, in which the United States accepts around a million legals annually in addition to adding perhaps millions of illegals every few years, on house prices.

“What do you see in the relationship, particularly since housing has been such a huge driver of inflation over the past few years? What role do you think illegal immigration has in pushing up housing costs, which of course is a main pusher of inflation for American citizens?” Vance questioned Powell.

Powell stated, “I’m sure there are cities in the nation where new individuals are coming in; you can find places where they exist, where it will have added to an already tight housing market.” He generally minimized the effect on “aggregate inflation.”

Vance specifically discussed the housing market in Springfield, Ohio, where a large migration from Haiti has sharply raised rents and pushed house prices beyond the reach of most people.

“Springfield has had a boom in population from immigration that has greatly impacted our ability to generate enough housing,” a message from Springfield officials states, according to Vance.

“Springfield’s Haitian population has gone to 15,000 from 20,000 over the past four years, significantly straining our resources and capacity to provide enough homes for all residents.” Even with the scheduled addition of 2,000 more homes over the next three to five years, this remains insufficient.

Vance’s remarks follow former President Donald Trump’s remarks to an Arizona audience last month that mass immigration significantly influences American house values.

With our 15 million new immigrants, housing prices are simply rising. Trump commented that we couldn’t accommodate them anywhere. “We have absolutely no place for them; that number is rising, and we have nowhere at all.”

Vance is a strong vice presidential candidate for Trump.

Similarly, Vance observed at the hearing with Powell the effect mass immigration had on wages, especially for middle-class and working Americans.

“I wonder when you see other economists discuss the growth of immigration and how it has surely put a downward push on wages.” Obviously,  that has put some downward pressure on inflation, but it also puts downward pressure on the wages that people earn to pay for their families,” Vance said. “Why do we regard that as a positive thing?”

Powell replied by acknowledging that U.S. salaries reflect immigration in some measure:

“All of this is taking place within the context of a very tight labor market, which has now become somewhat less tight—significantly less tight….” Immigration is addressing the extremely tight labor market in your area. Although wages are still somewhat high, they are declining to a more ecologically friendly level.”

Vance said legislators should concentrate on removing millions of prime working-age Americans from the job market sidelines instead of bringing thousands more foreign workers for hiring.

“If we say we have a highly tight labor market and we say there is more than one opening per worker, there are two possible ways you could reasonably solve that, certainly more than that, but two clear ways you could reasonably handle that,” Vance said.

“One is from a new wave of immigrants who are bringing workers through the system.” In this regard, increasing pay and bringing some of the sidelined workers back can also help. I particularly consider the seven million males of prime age who have left the workforce. Why not try to raise wages in a way that draws some of those people off the sidelines? Policymakers should not be more focused on the labor shortage than on bringing in a lot of new immigrants.”

Powell said he agreed with Vance’s assessment, noting, “That’s a very helpful emphasis. I agree; I also do not believe it has to be one or the other.”

According to a labor market data analysis last month, over 75% of all American job growth—both legal and illegal immigrants—has gone to newly arrived immigrants in January 2019, before the Chinese coronavirus epidemic shuttered the American economy.

Less than one million native-born Americans have entered the workforce in the meantime.

This week, the House Judiciary Committee published a stunning report including shocking information about a corporate conspiracy to crush conservative opinions by means of targeting Breitbart News, and Twitter (now X).

The committee produced its report just hours before the scheduled testimony that said those businesses, who are a part of the Alliance for Responsible Media’s Steer Team (called GARM), may have broken antitrust laws in their attempts to deny conservative news outlets and personalities, and companies bold enough to feature conservative viewpoints in advertising dollars.

“Through GARM, significant firms, advertising agencies, and industry groups participated in boycotts and other concerted action to demonetize platforms, news sites, and other content though disfavored by GARM,” the paper says. “This collaboration can have the consequence of diminishing the variety of material and opinions available to consumers.”

With enormous market power in the advertising sector, GARM, an initiative of the strong World Federation of Advertisers (WFA), revealed shocking proof of GARM’s perhaps illegal behavior in the paper “GARM’s Harm: How the World’s Greatest Brands Seek to Control Online Speech.”

In a transcribed interview with the committee, GARM’s head and co-founder Rob Rakowitz frequently “gave incorrect information” and contradicted recorded evidence acquired by the committee.

With its enormous power influence, GARM apparently engages in activities far more serious than its declared goal of improving “brand safety,” even straying into content moderation on television, social media, and the internet. According to the report,

Calling itself “an industry first effort that joins marketers, media platforms, and ad technology solutions providers to protect the promise of digital media by limiting the availability and monetization of harmful content,” GARM says it was developed to promote openness in rules to help businesses reach “brand safety,” so in other words, “transparency on where advertisements [are] put [to] make sure that [advertisers] don’t unwittingly endorse” specific content on social platforms. To reach this goal, GARM asserts that it operates in the “content monetization” domain, focusing on the content that ads genuinely support and the methods used for online ad placement. GARM disclaims “moderation,” which is the “practice of deciding what content is appropriate for hosting, recommending, and making available on a platform.” However, GARM acknowledges the intricate intertwining of content monetization and moderation, stating that lapses in moderation pose a risk to advertising and advertisers. Stated differently, GARM’s monetizing efforts help to shape what material shows up online.

The committee’s records reveal the extent of GARM’s cooperation among some of the most influential global companies to silence conservative news media, including Breitbart News. The analysis states:

Internal GARM records sent to the Committee reveal a blatant leaning toward left-leaning news sources, which compromises GARM’s work. When Mr. Rakowitz answered a query about The Daily Wire, a conservative news outlet and media company established by commentator Ben Shapiro, for instance, he got in touch with two GroupM employees: John Montgomery, of Global Brand Safety, and Joe Barone, Managing Partner of Brand Safety Americas. Mr. Rakowitz inquired about GroupM’s stance on The Daily Wire. GARM is “explicitly neutral,” Mr. Rakowitz informed the two men, and he warned them against de-platforming anyone who would contradict GARM’s perspective. However, Mr. Montgomery explained to Mr. Rakowitz that GroupM monitors the media it opposes, like The Daily Wire, to uncover any unethical practices. Mr. Montgomery specifically wrote to Mr. Rakowitz on how GroupM handles underprivileged news sources:

There is an intriguing connection with Brittany. We had protracted debates over whether we should add them to our exclusion lists before Breitbart crossed the line and began spewing obvious false information. We couldn’t really defend excluding someone for having a misguided opinion, even if we disliked their ideas and garbage. We observed them closely, and it wasn’t long until they crossed the line.

According to reports from ZeroHedge, Marianne Lake, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase’s Consumer Lending division, warned that the bank might start charging customers for services like checking accounts and wealth-management tools if elected officials in Congress proceed with the enactment of policies that cap overdrafts and late fees.

According to Lake, “The changes will be broad, sweeping, and dramatic.”

Organizations such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau have proposed capping late credit card payment costs at $8 and overdraft fees at $3. Furthermore, there are reports that Chase may put a cap on debit card costs, as well as the amount banks can charge CashApp and Venmo for accessing and utilizing their clients’ data.

The CFPB passed a regulation limiting late fees on credit cards back in March. To prevent it from becoming law, a number of financial sector associations launched a lawsuit. A judge is presently considering an appeal on the statute.

While the court case over the credit card late charge cap is still pending, some credit card firms have already announced their intention to transfer expenses to their individual customers.

According to an investor presentation, Chase has already laid out plans to increase interest rates and adopt a more cautious approach to credit card loan underwriting, as the Wall Street Journal reported.

In other words, regulations have the ability to increase the cost of otherwise common services. This is how economic interventionism operates. There are plenty of grounds for resentment toward the business world.

But in this case, employing punitive economic interventionism is not the best course of action, particularly if it lowers people’s standards of living.

Putting up policies that lessen the regulatory state’s influence in the economy while maintaining the supervision of central banks would be a preferable approach to handling these problems. Encouraging further involvement will only make things worse for the populace as the governing class gets richer.

Since recommitting the nation to the Paris Climate Accords on his first day in office, President Joe Biden’s administration has steadfastly pursued a “net zero” climate-control strategy. It’s been all downhill since then, as anyone who has shopped at food stores in the previous three years can attest.

Biden’s executive directives, which target future domestic oil and natural gas supplies, will increase the cost of producing and acquiring chemicals. To follow carbon emissions from the farmer’s field to the family dinner table, his representatives at the Securities and Exchange Commission have proposed ESG reporting. And that’s only the beginning.

This foolish ideological climate agenda aims to increase the cost of food, freezers, tractors, trucks, power, gas, oil, and fertilizer, as well as heating and drying equipment and transportation. The higher cost of food at every stage of production—from farm to fork—is a benefit rather than a drawback for the Biden economy. It is all part of the Left’s coordinated campaign to raise the cost of carbon energy and decrease its use.

The European Union has tilted at these fantastical windmills for decades, damaging its economies.

Electric firms in Europe imposed their increased energy expenses on customers, leading to a sudden increase in residential and industrial power prices of 131% and 59%, respectively, between January 2021 and January 2022. Cap-and-trade prices and emissions-controlling tariffs have increased in Germany’s manufacturing and chemical industries. In response, they shelled out hundreds of billions of euros to get off the grid in Europe.

Several EU nations have even gone so far as to encourage private banks to refuse necessary loans to farms judged to emit excessive amounts of greenhouse gases. Lower emissions and fewer farms are two components of the climate management strategy.

However, fewer farms also translate into less affordable and scarcer food. At the neighborhood grocer, people are already paying historically high prices. According to research from April, the average grocery list now costs 36.5% more than it did in 2019. Prices for items like eggs and sports drinks have increased by more than 40%. According to the US Department of Agriculture, due to price hikes, consumers are now spending more than 11% of their income on food, which is a peak they haven’t reached since 1991. Furthermore, American people would pay even more for even less once the Biden administration’s proposed climate regulations make their way to our grocers, restaurants, and farms.

In order to better understand the expenditures that American households and farmers can anticipate in the near future, the Buckeye Institute analyzed the expected costs associated with the “social cost of carbon emissions” on a standard corn farm. It goes without saying that diesel fuel for tractors, trucks, and combined vehicles will cost more. Additionally, the cost of propane will increase for heating barns, and nitrogen fertilizer is extensively used in agriculture and grain dryers.

The Biden administration’s proposed climate-control carbon pricing plan will result in an annual operational cost increase for farmers of at least $65,000, or 34%.

Furthermore, those price increases won’t last at the farm. Similar to Europe, farmers in this region will transfer their increased expenses to supermarkets, eateries, and customers who are still fighting to keep up with inflation while still trying to make ends meet. According to the Buckeye Institute’s model, Biden’s new regulations will increase the cost of the food chain and the annual grocery expenses of an average four-person family by $1,330, a 15% increase. $20 cheeseburgers would become a mainstay of the Biden administration’s net-zero policy menu if prices for certain carbon-intensive items, such as processed cheese and beef, increased by as much as $9 per pound.

However, this price hike is more than simply a carnivore’s problem. Over time, the price of rice may rise by 56% for everyone, while the cost of bananas and strawberries will increase by 59% and 47%, respectively.

The current president’s plan does not include more backyard barbecues at reasonable prices or a better economic strategy for those seeking those things this summer. Biden has included his goal of reaching “net zero” as a dramatic aspect of his national economic plan. America, best of luck covering that cost.

In a recent filing, well-known discount retailer Big Lots informed financial regulators that the company’s extraordinary losses over the previous two years have created “serious uncertainty about the company’s capacity to continue.”

According to the Daily Mail, the Ohio-based homeware business, which has about 1,400 stores throughout the country, experienced a sharp $132 million loss in the first three months of 2024 after declining since 2022.

Chief Financial Officers of Big Lots, according to recent quarterly reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), said that the company’s financial difficulties caused executives to deplete their personal savings intended for stock purchases.

Big Lots informed the federal authorities:

“The Company has decided there is a great likelihood that it will not be able to comply with the Excess Availability Covenant in line with the 2022 Credit Agreement within the upcoming 12 months, which creates substantial doubt over the Company’s ability to keep going concern,” the statement reads. “Based on our cash projections, as well as uncertainties with respect to managing the effect of management’s plans.”

Company representatives went on, “An event of default would result in failure to comply with the Excess Availability Covenant, which might lead to an acceleration of our obligations with the Term Loan Facility and the 2022 Credit Agreement.” “We cannot guarantee that the loan parties under the 2022 Credit Agreement or the Term Loan Facility would overlook the company’s noncompliance with the Excess Availability Covenant.”

Store managers at Big Lots “said they are not surprised,” according to the Daily Mail. They assert that the corporation ships them enormous quantities of goods, but not the ones that the clients desire.

The company’s stock price dropped to barely $1.71 on Wednesday before the market closed for Independence Day, despite reaching a peak of $72.31 in 2021. According to reports, the stock has decreased by 81 percent this year and 48 percent last month.

The financial difficulties faced by Big Lots coincide with those of other well-known bargain retailers, such as Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, and 99 Cents Only, which announced the closing of all 371 of its sites in April.

193 individuals are facing charges from the Justice Department for $2.8 billion in healthcare fraud.

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the start of a two-week investigation on Thursday, accusing 193 individuals nationwide, including 76 certified healthcare providers, of participating in healthcare fraud schemes.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) highlighted 145 incidents, which Garland claims had intentional losses exceeding $2.75 billion and actual losses of $1.6 billion. The Department of Justice exposed allegations of medically unnecessary amniotic wound grafts, misappropriated HIV drugs, online Adderall distribution, and other telemedicine operations.

According to Garland, “the Justice Department’s investigative and prosecuting techniques will develop as healthcare fraud schemes do.” “We have a clear message for anyone looking to take advantage of people and cheat government programs: you cannot hide your crimes. We’ll track you down and make sure you answer for your actions.

The Criminal Division’s Health Care Fraud Unit, Federal, worked with many state and federal law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG) of the Department of Health and Human Services.

The government stated that it was able to take more than $231 million in “cash, luxury vehicles, gold, and other assets,” in addition to convictions in 32 federal districts and 11 states.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Administrator, Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, added in a statement that her agency “took 127 administrative actions in the last six months independently against providers for their alleged involvement in healthcare fraud schemes.”

A fraud operation worth over $900 million, in which four defendants allegedly preyed on elderly Medicare patients for costly amniotic grafts, was law enforcement’s top focus. The Department of Justice released a statement stating that the patients’ superficial wounds received these therapies “indiscriminately, without coordination with the patient’s treating physicians, and without necessary treatment for infection.”

Two of those defendants allegedly earned more than $600 million from Medicare in just 16 months, according to the DOJ.

Another action that the authorities detailed involved three owners and executives of a wholesale drug distributor. Law enforcement charged these individuals with participating in a $90 million wire fraud scheme using “adulterated and misbranded HIV drugs,” which they allegedly fraudulently recovered from patients and resold to pharmacies around the country.

The DOJ stated that “sometimes, patients received bottles labeled as their prescription medication, but the bottles contained a different substance entirely.” One patient, believing that he was receiving an antipsychotic drug, passed out and remained comatose for 24 hours.

Additionally, the government underscored the allegations previously made public against the clinical president and CEO of the telehealth firm Done, alleging that they orchestrated the prescription of 40 million stimulant drugs, including Adderall, on behalf of the company.

The latest statement made reference to new charges against their associates, one of whom is a Florida nurse practitioner who, according to the DOJ, wrote prescriptions for more than 1.5 million drugs without first consulting patients.

Done has issued a statement expressing its “disagreement” with the charges levied against its leadership, and it plans to continue operating normally.

FBI Director Christopher Wray stated in a statement that “Healthcare fraud plunders healthcare programs, endangers the health of vulnerable people, and victimizes patients.” “The FBI is committed to exposing predatory healthcare fraud, safeguarding patients, and making sure vital healthcare funding reaches the places where it is most needed,” as this extensive partnership illustrates.

The number of “ghost” pupils may increase as state enrollment continues to drop as a result of parents opting to pull their kids out of public school, outmigration, and declining birthrates.

According to a report by the libertarian Reason Foundation, California is paying for 400,974 “ghost” students who do not exist, costing the state $4.06 billion in the 2022–2023 school year. This is due to funding guarantees and enrollment decline stabilizing efforts.

The study’s authors, Christian Barnard, and Aaron Garth Smith, looked at the expenses associated with so-called “hold harmless” laws, which shield public schools from cuts in financing when enrollment declines. The two primary policies in use are funding guarantees, which give schools a certain amount of state financial support regardless of enrollment, and falling enrollment protections, which permit schools to utilize earlier, higher enrollment figures to determine funding. Interestingly, “hold harmless” financing is not available for public charter schools in California.

Eighty-five percent of school districts got funds designated as “hold harmless.” Among the 148 schools that received funding under the minimal state aid program, 111 were “property-wealthy districts that didn’t ordinarily qualify for state formula help.”

The enrollment-based funding policy in California permits the use of the average daily attendance for the current year, the previous year, or the average of the three most recent years (excluding the current year), whichever is higher. The disparity between the number of students the school district actually enrolled and the number it used to get money is known as “ghost” students. Los Angeles Unified, the state’s largest school system, received $507.74 million in state funding because there were an estimated 50,417 “ghost” students. Los Angeles Unified comprises 125 of the more than 1,400 public schools in California that have seen enrollment drops of 20% or more as a result of the pandemic.

6.2% of the state formula assistance that school districts received on a statewide level came from “ghost” student budgets. Because of the state’s limited resources, funding for “ghost” students affects funding for actual students.

Smith told The Center Square, “California’s harmless regulations untether the relationship between K-12 financing and pupils.” Given the dire status of the state’s finances, legislators ought to think carefully about how best to distribute financing for public education. A positive first step in this direction would be to do away with phantom students and the state’s [minimum state assistance] requirement.

Enrollment in California public schools fell by 325,311 during the 2019–2020 and 2023–2024 academic years, despite the introduction of a brand-new grade, transitional kindergarten, in an attempt to increase financing and attendance rates.

For the upcoming fiscal year, California intends to spend about $23,940 on each TK–14 students. With one in four Californians expected to be 60 or older by 2030, enrollment declines could force the state to transfer funding from education to elder care at some point.

The Republican chairmen of House committees on Saturday requested audits due to an “astonishing volume” of possible fraud involving Obamacare enrollment.

According to a report from the Paragon Health Institute, the chairs of the Judiciary, Ways, and Means, and Energy and Commerce committees, as well as the inspector general at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), called on government watchdogs, including the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the inspector general at the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS), to investigate a “large level” of potential Obamacare enrollment fraud.

According to a study by a conservative think tank organization, up to five million Americans might be fraudulently obtaining insurance subsidies under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare.

The leaders of the House Republicans argued, “The scope of the issue indicates malevolent intent.” They demanded a “systemic assessment of enrollment” from the watchdog groups.

Health brokers may have fabricated information to enroll clients or mistakenly switched them between plans without the client’s knowledge or consent, according to a new investigation from Kaiser Family Foundation Health News, or KFF Health News.

Even some Democrats, like Senate Finance Committee Chair Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), have called for information regarding enforcement measures to shield citizens from unscrupulous middlemen.

According to The Washington Post:

“As politicians continued to argue over the health bill and how to pay for its programs, attention shifted to possible ACA fraud. Democrats have applauded the number of people who have signed up under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). During the debate on Thursday night, President Biden mentioned that the ACA’s Medicaid expansion and insurance marketplaces have covered over 40 million Americans. Republicans have responded by saying that Democrats have been overly liberal in providing federal subsidies for private health insurance and that the program’s original intent has been misinterpreted.”

Former Trump White House health policy official and Paragon President Brian Blase remarked, “It’s amazing how little has been done to date looking at these challenges.”

According to Blase, in 2024, this level of possible fraud would cost $20 billion.

By calling for $1.6 billion in spending on a specific health concern in Africa, America First attacked Democratic pet projects that regard government coffers as “the piggybank of the globe.”

Although the debate about Congress’s misappropriation of funds taken from voters’ paychecks has been around for a while, the excessive expenditure on Ukraine was not the only pork item that was still on the budgeting menu.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) of Georgia brought attention to the $1.6 billion being used to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa as she attempted to curb the extravagant generosity that swamp monsters in Washington, D.C., had been using with other people’s hard-earned money.

“During a session on the Fiscal Year 2025 Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, I introduced an amendment to cut $1.6 billion from wasteful USAID spending,” the congresswoman wrote as the caption for a video of herself speaking on the House floor.

“USAID distributes tax dollars from the United States to support leftist agendas, even though America’s borders are open and people are dying as a result,” the speaker continued, breaking into a loud voice from the chamber as she mentioned that USAID assisted Tanzania in obtaining $7.8 million in private sector funding for private medical facilities. This expenditure led to a 35% increase in HIV tests, the testing of over 10,000 individuals, and the connection of 100% of those who tested positive to care.

“USAID worked with private pharmacies in Nigeria to treat HIV patients,” Greene continued. “In the meantime, the American fentanyl drug issue persists, but we are still providing billions of dollars to USAID to combat AIDS and other diseases worldwide.”

“In the face of a weapon of mass destruction that claims American lives on a daily basis, we ought to care for Americans and support their domestic medical care,” she declared. The American taxpayers are paying for this, and they want their issues resolved,” she continued. “They want security for Americans.” They want to feel comfortable and safe in their own homes, not become the global piggybank that is USAID.

In the same speech concerning her proposal, Greene had demanded that USAID Administrator Samantha Power—who served as the country’s ambassador to the UN during the Obama administration—have her salary revoked for her use of agency funds, amounting to billions, to further communist causes.

A congresswoman from Georgia argued, “Under Samatha Power, USAID has installed diversity, equity, and inclusion advisers in all offices, and overseas missions and built an agency-wide dashboard and DEI scores to track staff compliance with the administration’s DEI objectives.” “These obviously political scorecards require ideological conformity and have no place in the workplace, let alone in the government.”

She said, “In addition, during her tenure in the position, Samantha Power has met with significant left-wing foundations on multiple occasions.” “Fox News managed to obtain nearly 700 pages of internal calendar entries, which reveal that Power had multiple meetings with George Soros’ Open Society Foundation. She did, of course. She also had at least five meetings with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. She also had talks with the Ford and Rockefeller foundations, among other influential organizations. Power’s tight relationships with these organizations serve as an example of how the Biden administration’s representatives and agencies maintain constant communication with left-leaning outside organizations that support the implementation of radical policy objectives.

Greene pondered, “Imagine if this money went to Americans — who by the way, are paying for it — instead of foreign countries.” In 2022, USAID will receive over $40 billion in funding for more than 130 countries. Perhaps we could work out some of our domestic issues.
