I think its first wise to remember that House Speaker Larry Householder from the Ohio House of Representatives is innocent until proven guilty. I happen to know personally that the House has been looking to garner support to impeach Governor Mike DeWine and Householder was obviously the leader of the House which would be required to put forth the hearings and to start that looooooonnngg process. So the timing of this bribery case with FirstEnergy and the two nuclear powerplants that were the subject of a recent billion dollar plus recovery which Larry Householder led the charge is very suspicious to me. I do like Householder, he’s way too liberal for me, but I think he’s a pretty good guy. The $60 million in what the media is calling bribery sounds like a lot of money to the young 20 something reporters who are just a few years removed from living in their parents house, but in the scheme of things, its not very much money. It is a problem if Householder used some of that money, roughly $400,000 on private desires, but we’ll see. There is an awful lot fishy about this entire case and the timing of it, and how quickly Governor DeWine asked Householder to resign his job as speaker.
Many have forgotten but the case at the press conference was laid out by the prosecutor, a Trump appointee I might add, was already covered last year and it was a nothing burger. FirstEnergy was a company suffering under the heavy Obama administration mandates for a emission free society and their whole purpose was to put companies like FirstEnrgy out of business, this political aggression going back for most of the last decade. It was the purpose of the climate change radicals and the Obama administration to put coal and nuclear power out of business in favor of solar and wind power. So its no surprise that Republicans, especially Trump supporters in elected offices, would want to reverse that trend and help Ohio with traditional jobs not destroyed by environmental activists and Marxist leaning political radicals. That was how Householder and others became involved in the very contentious FirstEnergy bailout. Its really not much different than the multi-trillion-dollar bailout the government provided everyone over Covid-19. When government makes your business fail, they owe you something, and FirstEnergy found themselves in that predicament.
I noticed several troubling elements of the press conference by prosecutors and the Cincinnati branch of the FBI, the case they spelled out, which they say involved a year and a half of investigation was essentially based on newspaper articles written by climate change activists in July of 2019. So, the investigation into Householder and others started the same time the debate began on this issue and was largely shaped back then by political enemies of Householder. The whole dark money distribution that the FBI illustrated in this case was already presented by reporters in nearly the identical detail, so that leaves the question to be answered, what new did the FBI and prosecutors do over that whole time, and why now exploit it for an arrest of Householder, the most powerful Republican in Columbus, Ohio? Even stranger, at the end of their press conference prosecutors and the FBI asked for more information on this case, as if they were just using old newspaper reports already on the record and trying to resurrect the story now hoping to bring forth more witnesses from the public during a highly contested election year, where there are fights for power in both houses—that might possibly be more friendly to Governor DeWine? Hmmmmm. Its something to contemplate.
Radical climate change activists have witnessed in 2020 realizations they could have never dreamed of in 2019, watching all of society essentially shut down over Covid-19, watching Mike DeWine essentially turn into a Democrat, and to see fractures in the Republican Party crack along the dealing with the self-imposed crises. The time to strike at Householders grip on the Republican Party was now, and perhaps an even greater ally in DeWine could be made as he moved obviously much further to the political left. That’s just a thought I have based on experience. It wouldn’t surprise me if all that was true, and additionally, if the former Attorney General himself didn’t put the FBI on the breadcrumbs of the FirstEnergy relationship with Householder to shake off talks by the House to impeach him. I don’t think anybody would argue these days that any such contemplations are beyond the realm of reality. Additionally, due to the lazy investigation by the FBI and federal prosecutors it looks like they are on their own marketing campaign to restore faith in their services, but that they were so lazy, they didn’t even do their own investigation, but simply lifted their case off the ‘The Intercept’ reporting on the matter July 26th of 2019.
Politics is dirty business, its hard to keep people honest when access to so much money is flying around. Good people go bad all the time and bad people are attracted to the profession for all the reasons that the media and political enemies of Householder are piling on to crucify him. Hidden in their comments are traces of anti-American Marxism and a downright dirty hatred of Republicans who promote profit for any company. We are to believe that FirstEnergy is a vile “capitalist” company that needs to be brought down because they are not committed to the zero-emission green new deal standards of the communist climate change activists. So, any definition on the matter other than the one they have established becomes the media standard and Householder and his partners must defend themselves from that guilt first stance. It’s the same liberal argument that assumes that every white person is guilty and owes people of color reparations and should kneel before the National Anthem to show solidarity to some minority group. Climate change is the same kind of radical argument, earth first instead of using the earth to advance mankind into an interplanetary species. This case is very much about taking out those who stand against climate change and other progressive platforms and advancing in the minds of voters the merits of new forms of energy, even if they do suck in delivery.
When the House debated House Bill 6, which is what it was called in 2019 what Republicans eventually agreed to was that to save the cost to the monthly bills that the bailout would cost customers, it was agreed to sunset many of the green new deal aspects of the regulatory mandate, which offset much of the incurred costs of the bailout. That’s what the climate activists are angry about, and that is essentially the case that the FBI has against Householder, and that is likely why Governor DeWine is quick to jump on the bandwagon. He’s turning toward more liberal vantage points anyway, and for him, it kills the talk of impeachment led by Householder because it forces the House to re-establish their leadership culture. And not to mention, Democrats are looking to flip Ohio to blue and to attack Trump energy policies. By sending a few dozen Republicans from the House into a FirstEnergy bribery scandle a few months before the election, they achieve a lot of what they’d love to do to harm Trump’s grip on Ohio. DeWine isn’t a big Trump fan, like John Kasich, he’s more of a Democrat. Who doesn’t think he’d assassinate Republicans calling for his impeachment by calling in favors to a liberalized, activist FBI and Department of Justice trying to support a governor they’ve known for a long time and to pull the party back to the left where it was before President Trump? I think DeWine is just that kind of guy, and an alliance with Democrats gets him what he wants. He loves Amy Acton, it looks like he would become a liberal if they’d have him, and this attack on Householder is just the way to do it. Hmmmm, I bet these thoughts are much more than fiction. Likely, they are the true story of what is really going on……and it wouldn’t be the first time.
