Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is a man after Donald Trump’s own heart, short on values and ethics but long on entitlements namely spending taxpayer dollars on chartered flights to Las Vegas, Montana and the Caribbean islands. Funneling money to scam PAC’s that rip off elderly donors by taking their money and then mostly keeping it for executive and consultant salaries. And the latest, Zinke’s friend and neighbor’s two-person company, Whitefish Energy, somehow, someway, got a $300 million contract to repair Puerto Rico’s electrical infrastructure.
If you think Trump’s ego had no bounds how about this, Zinke requires his security staff to hoist a special secretarial flag on the Interior Department’s roof whenever he’s in the building, and to remove it when Zinke departs. He also has commissioned a commemorative coin with his name on it to give to staff and visitors. Yup the inmates are running the asylum.
If the Whitefish Energy deal smells fishy to you imagine how it smells to the people of Puerto Rico who have been in the dark now for well over a month. And what is the White Houses view of this brewing controversy? “Our understanding is the decision to give a contract to Whitefish Energy was made exclusively by Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority. The White House is not aware of any federal involvement in the selection.” Right!
This President, and his administration are totally out of control. Remember drain the swamp? Well so far all we have gotten is drain the coffers of the American people. Private flights, golf carts, redecorating, extra security, and we thought a Trump White House would just cost us our sanity, well think again.
