US Solar Companies Warn That Proposed Tariffs Would Devastate New Projects

A U.S. solar industry group warned on Wednesday that tariffs on imported panels from three Asian countries would jeopardize nearly 30 percent of the solar capacity the nation is expected to install over the next two years. The Commerce Department is poised to decide by the end of September whether to launch a trade investigation into solar cells and modules from Malaysia, Vietnam, and Thailand. Those countries account for 80 percent of all panel imports into the United States, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) said in a statement. In a letter to Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, the SEIA said the duties—proposed by an anonymous group of domestic manufacturers last month—would be devastating to the growth of the renewable energy sector. “We cannot emphasize enough how damaging these tariffs would be to our companies and the entire American solar industry,” said the letter signed by nearly 200 solar companies.

CCP Defector Says China Deliberately Spread COVID at Military Event in 2019

CCP defector Wei Jingsheng says the Communist Chinese deliberately spread COVID-19 at an international military tournament in Wuhan in October 2019, two months before they notified the WHO about the first case of the virus. According to Jingsheng, some of the 9,000 athletes who had gathered for the event came down with a mystery illness after the CPP deliberately sought to create a superspreader event. “I thought the Chinese Government would take this opportunity to spread the virus during the Military Games, as many foreigners would show up there,” Jingsheng told The Mail Australia. The whistleblower said he had heard rumors of the Chinese preparing for an “unusual exercise” during the event involving “some strange weapons, including biological weapons.” Jingsheng said he tried to warn the Trump administration at the time but that no one listened to him. “They may not believe that a Government of a country would do something like that (cover up a virus), so I kept repeating myself in an effort … to persuade them,” he said. Former Principal China Adviser to the U.S. State Department Miles Yu backed up Jingsheng’s claims, asserting that he witnessed French, German and American athletes fall sick at the tournament with COVID-like symptoms. As we highlighted earlier, scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology attempted to secure $14 million in funding from DARPA in 2018 to genetically alter viruses, including bat coronaviruses, and make them more infectious to humans.

SoftBank, Middle Eastern Sovereign Wealth Funds Back Mnuchin’s $2.5 Billion Private Equity Fund

SoftBank, Middle Eastern Sovereign Wealth Funds Back Mnuchin’s $2.5 Billion Private Equity Fund Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has found an investor for his new 10-figure private equity fund in an old friend of the Trump Administration: SoftBank. The latest iteration of SoftBank’s infamous Vision Fund has decided to invest in Mnuchin’s new firm, which has a fundraising target of $2.5 billion, and will feature a private equity model. Mnuchin’s new Liberty Strategic Capital, which was launched earlier this year, has also raised money from sovereign wealth funds in the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. Ironically, the Saudis were a major backer of SoftBank’s first vision fund, but declined to invest in VFII after VFI single-handedly hiked valuations across the Silicon Valley startup world with massive investments in Uber, WeWork, and other less-well-known firms. WeWork’s implosion, defeat at Wag, and even more ridiculous ventures like Zume Pizza – the VF’s $4 billion burnt pizza fiasco – left SoftBank and its Middle Eastern backers with massive losses. Although it mostly slipped below the radar, Mnuchin’s fund also received an investment from Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala, the giant sovereign wealth fund that saw its reputation tainted by the 1MDB scandal (which briefly led Mubadala to suspend its relationship with Mnuchin’s former employer, Goldman Sachs). According to the FT, one anonymous source said VFII’s decision to invest with Mnuchin was influenced by Saudi Arabia’s PIF, the state fund administered by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, with whom Mnuchin was said to have a friendly relationship. Liberty Strategic said: “The firm is not permitted to comment on any ongoing fundraising, but it has a diverse investor base including US insurance companies, family offices, sovereign wealth funds, and other institutional investors.” Mnuchin had close ties with the US’s Middle Eastern partners during his time
