Proof that crony capitalism isn’t real capitalism: Jon Podesta’s “green company” forced to close because Hillary lost the election (and the money train dried up)

An elusive “green energy” startup that was secretly slated for wild success when it was assumed that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 presidential election is in the throes of complete collapse now that Donald Trump is in the Oval Office. But the impending failure of Joule Unlimited is only President Trump’s fault insofar as his unexpected victory threw a major wrench into what appears to have been an elaborate scheme by the Clinton Crime Cartel to funnel more cash into yet another one of the failed political candidate’s illicit side hustles.

When Joule Unlimited made the decision to hire former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta to its board, the company was obviously banking on a Clinton win to grease the wheels and send its profits to the moon. Joule CEO Brian Baynes told Biofuels Digest back in July that his company had “a lot of prospects last year” when everyone assumed that the United States would be ushering in its first woman president. But now that the former Secretary of State’s obsessive dreams of White House occupation have vanished into thin air, so have Joule’s prospects of ever even getting off the ground, let alone succeeding as a company.

“We lined up investors who were willing to buy the bonds, but after the elections, with some statements from the new administration regarding potential uncertainty, the future support of biofuels was stopped,” claims Dmitry Akhanov, the president and CEO of Rusnano USA Inc., a Kremlin-owned venture capital firm that oversaw the Russian government’s involvement in investing in Joule. Akhanov sat on Joule’s board along with two other Russians with ties to the Kremlin, as reported by The Daily Caller News Foundation.


“The company was not able to do the deal and it was one of the reasons why the company was closed.”

If anyone maintained illicit ties to the Russians it was Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump

Akhanov says his company invested and lost 1 billion rubles, the equivalent of roughly $17 million USD ($35 million at the time), as a result of Joule’s failure. Fellow Russians Ruben Vardanyan, a Vladimir Putin appointee to the Russian economic modernization council, and Anatoly Chubais, a close personal friend of former President Bill Clinton and economic advisor to former Russian President Boris Yeltsin, both suffered similar losses. Chubais is said to have made millions when Russia privatized and sold off its various state-owned industries.

So, while Clinton has done nothing over the past year except whine and cry along with the fake news media about Trump’s presidential win, attributing his victory to “Russian hacking,” the evidence shows that it was actually Clinton herself who had been working all kinds of side deals with the Russians. In this case, she appears to have actively conspired with high-level Russian businessmen and government operatives to profit from a questionable enterprise established under the false pretense of capitalism.

“The FBI believes the true motives of the Russian partners, who are often funded by their government, is to gain access to classified, sensitive and emerging technology from the companies,” write Lucia Ziobro, the special agent in charge at the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Boston field office, who in 2014 issued an “extraordinary warning” about Russian involvement in secretive startup schemes such as Joule.

Many Natural News readers will recall that former President Barack Obama was guilty of proliferating similar “green energy” scams. These include the infamous Solyndra debacle in which the Obama administration was caught funneling taxpayer money into the company at a time when it was already on the verge of bankruptcy, enriching his insider buddies who held high-level positions there.
