Virginia’s Loudoun County School Board ended their meeting early Tuesday when the public comment portion of the meeting got out of hand because of anti-critical race theory protestors. Board members voted unanimously to end public comment. Protestors booed the board into silence with signs in tote.

Many were upset that not everyone had been heard during the public comment portion. 259 people signed up for public comments. After the 51st person spoke, the board voted to end the portion because protestors were too rambunctious. Protestors were warned once.

Then, protestors rallied to sing the national anthem while board members sat quietly behind them. Reuters reporter Gabriella Borter captured their performance on video. But, since the protestors interrupted board’s meeting, the county sheriff’s office declared the gathering an unlawful assembly.

When police arrived, they told protestors that they had to leave immediately or they would be considered trespassers. They ended up arresting two men. A spokesman reported to Fox News that police arrested one man for trespassing and released him. The second did not get off so lucky.

“A second adult male was acting disorderly and displayed aggressive behavior towards another attendee,” the spokesperson told Fox News. “A deputy intervened and the subject continued to be disorderly with the deputy. LCSO Deputies attempted to take him into custody and he physically resisted arrest. The subject was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.”

Biden Energy Secretary Subject of Ethics Complaint for Promoting Electric Company She Held $1.6 Million in Stock

President Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm has received an ethics complaint for promoting an electric bus company she sat on the board of and held over a million dollars of stock in. She did so all while being a part of the executive branch in Biden’s administration.

Breitbart reports Granholm, “who oversees moving the country toward an electric vehicle transportation system and enjoys newfound powers after the passage of Biden’s infrastructure package — is facing scrutiny for promoting Proterra, a Burlingame, California-based electric bus company she sat on the board of and held 240,520 shares of stock in, which garnered her $1.6 million when she finally divested them 157 days after her nomination.”

Critics say Granholm has promoted Proterra in her official capacity as energy secretary and for hyping grant access to companies with connections to Proterra. Additionally, they say Granholm’s promotion of Proterra has increased its visibility and therefore the value of her stock before she was required to sell her shares due to ethics rules.

As of Monday, the company had a market cap of $2.6 billion. Granholm also promoted Burlingame, a California electric vehicle company, at the same time “Democrats in Congress were crafting – and ultimately passing – Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure package, which dramatically increases Granholm’s authority as energy secretary to advance private sector companies in the transition to an electric vehicle-based transportation infrastructure” reports Breitbart.

The infrastructure package “grants as much as $174 billion to green vehicles and $456 billion to zero-emission buses to ‘replace 50,000 diesel transit vehicles and electrify at least 20 percent of our yellow school bus fleet’ and ‘to build a national network of 500,000 EV chargers by 2030.”

Breitbart reports:

Granholm’s involvement with Proterra started in March of 2017 when the company announced she would be joining its board ostensibly due to her experience with the automotive sector when she served as Michigan’s governor from 2003 to 2011. Proterra hoped to use Granholm’s “track record for producing a high-quality clean energy and transportation workforce in the Midwest” to launch the company into the “next phase of strategic growth and national deployment,” its press release explained. During her time on the board, Granholm supplemented her considerable income by simultaneously serving on the boards and consulting for various left-wing organizations as well, such as American Bridge PAC and Media Matters.
