Blavatnik Hires David Bernhardt, US Interior Secretary, Not So Indirectly

This hiring/bribing of various Interior Secretaries and Ministers is actually a worldwide crime spree from Africa to Russia and the Americas. Let’s see who’s behind it.

POTUS signs an Executive Order on April 14, 2020.

>>Secretary of the Interior (Secretary) during any period when both the Secretary and the Deputy Secretary of the Interior have died, resigned, or are otherwise unable to perform the functions and duties of the office of Secretary.

An official investigation into ethics violations by Trump’s new Secretary of the Interior, David Bernhardt, was opened just four days after his confirmation

I’ll be quoting mostly from the article linked here but it should be read entirely:

I noticed this name Bernhardt is the same as a business associate who I met through Bibi/Randy. If David Bernhardt or his family owns or owned a furniture company by that name, then it’s the same family at least.

The David Bernhardt under discussion is a sleazeball who works for Leonard Blavatnik.

I say sleazeball because his crimes are part of a worldwide take over of natural resources by a handful of oligarchs all, coincidentally, connected to Bibi. This take-over includes control of water worldwide. Congress approved David Bernhardt before the investigation began.

This is what David Bernhardt is being investigated for:

One of these investigations is expanding: Taylor Oil Spill off the coast of Louisiana. This is worth taking note of, because oil spills and industrial pollution in general is a constant theme among these oligarch  players worldwide going back to the 1970’s in Louisiana.  The polution allowed (by means of minuscule fines for major pollution) by traitorous Interior Secretaries is glimpsed by looking at Kerr-Magee, which now is Anadarko, which has mining interests in the African Sahara region, which explains the constant jockeying for position around Libya.

Bernhardt Investigated For The Taylor Oil Spill

“As of 2018, 300 to 700 barrels of oil per day are being spilled, making it one of the worst modern oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico by volume. The reserves are likely sufficient for the spill to continue for up to 100 years if it is not contained.”  The original well is now buried as the result of Hurricane Ivan.

“On April 8, Senator Ron Wyden (D.-Ore) called for the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia to “Thoroughly investigate potential civil and criminal violations of the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 (LDA) by Department of the Interior Secretary nominee David Bernhardt, as well as his former lobbying firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck.”

“More than 150 entries in Bernhardt’s official calendar fail to list the identities of persons or companies he was meeting with.

Intentionally omitting details of his work is illegal, and could have been an attempt to cover up illegal actions.”

“On March 27, The Washington Post reported that Bernhardt’s staff were actively engaged in ongoing efforts to remove specifics on who he was meeting with from his official calendar as the meetings happened…

On April 8, the DOI released 439 pages of previously undisclosed entries from Bernhardt’s calendar. CNN reports that new details in those entries reveal that Bernhard may have attempted to cover up multiple meetings with former lobbying clients.”

Bernhardt’s “Former” Lobbying Firm Works For Blavatnik:

A client of Bernhardt’s  began paying Bernhardt’s lobbying firm a $10,000-a-month bonus [bonus in addition to what?] shortly after Bernhardt was appointed Deputy Secretary. This is essentially hiring the U S Secretary of the Interior as the employee of Blavatnik, giving Blavatnik “access” to the department, and by extension ACCESS TO ALL of America’s natural resources. The name of Blavatnik’s business is “Access”.

On April 3, a Washington Post investigation revealed that Bernhardt’s “former” firm has quadrupled its business lobbying Department of the Interior since his appointment as Deputy Secretrary.

Lobbying

According to an investigation published by Global Witness on March 26, Bernhardt may have lied to Congress during testimony for his Deputy Secretary confirmation in 2017 about his work lobbying for “Russian” oligarch Leonard Blavatnik.

“In 2017, Bernhardt changed his lobbying records to remove his lobbying work for Access Industries – Blavatnik’s company – one week after Blavatnik’s $1 million Inaugural donation to Trump became public,” states Global Witness. “This change came two days before Trump officially nominated Bernhardt to be Deputy Secretary of Interior.”

Lying to Congress is a felony, but selling out America to Blavatnik is treason.

Suppressing Science

“According to a March 26 report in the New York Times, Bernhardt “blocked the release,” of a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service report that determined two widely used pesticides threaten the lives of more than 1,200 endangered species nationwide.”

Not to mention threatening the lives of human beings as well, right?

“Bernhardt lobbied for Westlands Water District, a large agricultural interest that holds water rights in California’s Central Valley. As Deputy Secretary of the Interior, Bernhardt is now responsible for this resource.”

“Bernhardt then implemented a new, much narrower standard for determining the risks pesticides pose, which was heavily lobbied for by pesticide makers. The move came shortly after the maker of one of those pesticides donated $1 million to Trump’s inauguration.”

Once again, the identity of the million dollar donor is censored out, but we already know that Blavatnik donated $1,000,000 to Trump’s inauguration.  Blavatnik is invested in genocidal pesticide companies then. But of course.

Eni Petroluem is on Bernhardt’s ethics recusal list, yet it is the first to be approved for a drilling permit in Arctic waters since 2015, by newly appointed Bernhardt.

DOI then tasked two employees with working over the Christmas holiday to finish approvals of that permit. A DOI spokesperson then referred to that as “a Christmas present,” to Eni.
“Many of Bernhardt’s scandals are related in one way or another to his work lobbying for the extraction and agriculture industries, which he did up until he joined the DOI in 2017. Famously, Bernhardt carried around the note card pictured above to remind him of all the various conflicts of interest his former career created, as well as the dates when those conflicts legally expire. That he may have worked in the interest of his former clients before those dates is the central thrust of Bernhardt’s scandals, in addition to simple mismanagement and neglect of the 500 million acres of public land and 70,000 employees he’s responsible for.”

Keeping The Enemy Close

The Senate voted to confirm Bernhardt’s nomination on April 11.  Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore) in a statement on the confirmation said “…the Senate just confirmed an Interior Secretary who could quite possibly face immediate investigations of his own. The ethical storm clouds are already gathering, and I fear a Bernhardt typhoon may be on its way.”
