Trump's Atlantic City Casino finally demolished

I reckon it's a metaphor. That would be nice if it portends the implosion of Trumpism.

died.  The republican is just the latest victim.  It may linger on a few years but it's walking dead already.

If bankruptcy is a disqualifier............

 

 

President Joe Biden’s* nominee to head the Department of Energy, Jennifer Granholm, divvied out millions in taxpayer funds during her two terms as Michigan governor to alternative energy companies that eventually went bankrupt.

 

In one instance, Granholm’s administration provided a $9.1 million refundable tax credit to a renewable energy company registered to the address of a single-wide trailer and run by a convicted embezzler named Richard Short. Short was found to be in violation of his parole and sent back to prison after appearing on stage with Granholm in 2010 to accept assistance from the Michigan Economic Growth Authority, according to Michigan Capitol Confidential.

Granholm also granted $10 million to an electric car battery manufacturer, A123 Systems, in 2009 and lauded the company in a press conference, saying it would help “make Michigan the alternative energy capital of North America and the advanced battery capital of the world.”

A123 Systems, which also received a $249.12 million federal grant by the Obama administration, filed for bankruptcy in 2012. The company is still in operation today as a subsidiary of a Chinese firm, Wanxiang America.

 
 
 

Another manufacturer of electric vehicle components that received Michigan taxpayer-funded assistance under Granholm’s watch, Azure Dynamics, filed for bankruptcy in 2012 and laid off 12o employees.

Granholm served as governor of Michigan from 2003 to 2011.

Only 2.3 percent of the 434 projects funded by the Michigan Economic Growth Authority under Granholm’s watch were successful in meeting their projected job creation goals, according to the American Energy Alliance.

*- Joe Biden was not elected by the American voters, he was selected by the vote counters.

Your continued “big lie” and a couple of bucks will get you some toilet paper to wipe your as s with.   The toilet paper is way more useful, than your continued lie.   Quit pulling the string - or get some new programming put in. You lie has been put to bed many, many times.

Going back to when Turdy was programmed to croak "Solyndra" when you'd pull his strings.

"We" actually threw more good after bad on various cellulosic ethanol schemes. Not a lot of complaining here, probably since it was a basic myth that provided cover for the huge corn ethanol push.

Celluslosic ethanol is moribund, solar is the greatest energy success since the Titusville well.

Re: Everything trump has ever touched has ...

One of the reasons Atlantic City's gambling industry started to fail was because the New Jersey town was no longer the only major draw on the eastern seaboard, with Pennsylvania and Connecticut offering attractive alternatives. To be honest, I don't mind the casino, but unfortunately, when I see how people sell everything they have to play in the casino, I understand that the casino is not closed for nothing. I think online casinos are much more secure. For example, my friend plays at this casino https://www.casinosnotongamstop.online for a few months and he doesn't have any addiction. Although most likely it depends only on the person.
