Kamala Harris-Endorsed Electric School Bus Company Files for Bankruptcy

The electric school bus company, which was praised by VP Kamala Harris and the White House, has filed for bankruptcy, according to reports.

On Monday, Proterra Inc announced that “market and macroeconomic headwinds” had forced it to seek Chapter 11 protections.

The electric school bus company added that future financing options will be worked out in Bankruptcy Court.

“The foundation we have built has set the stage for decarbonization across the commercial vehicle industry as a whole, and we recognize the great potential in all of our product offerings to enable this important transformation,” CEO Gareth Joyce said.

“This is why we are taking action to separate each product line through the Chapter 11 reorganization process to maximize their independent potential,” Joyce added.

He further explained that the company’s hurdles had “impacted our ability to efficiently scale all of our opportunities simultaneously,” and Proterra would be “sharpening our focus as a leading EV battery technology supplier for the benefit of our many stakeholders.”

Joyce was appointed to serve on the White House Export Council earlier this year, but the company’s relationship with the government goes way back.

Joe Biden, 2021, participated in a virtual tour of the Proterra Factor and praised the company for its commitment to zero-emission travel.

“We gotta own the future here,” Biden said at the time.

“We oughta be the single most significant supplier of electric buses and vehicles in the world before it’s over.”

“Right now, we’re running way behind China,” Biden continued, “but you guys are getting us in the game. It’s gonna make a lot of difference.”

Biden said electrified yellow school buses would improve the lives of American children.

Meanwhile, Kamala Harris also praised the company.

“Who doesn’t love a yellow school bus?” she cackled. “They will remain yellow, but their heart will be green!”

Watch

Harris has dropped babbling word salads over her love for electric numerous times.

“No exhaust, no diesel smell,” she said while delivering remarks.

“The bus has Wi-Fi and even USB outlets next to every seat! I mean, come on, imagine, you could charge your phone on your way home from work! That’s good stuff!”

I used to be CEO of the bus manufacturer that made the bus in the VP Harris photo background – not the one that went backrupt. While school buses on average only travel about 83 miles per day round trip, some operate on routes longer than the average and in very adverse, rural locations. When they breakdown or run out of “juice” when full of very young passengers, you will have a lot of very worried, pissed off parents who aren’t so enamored with the school bus’ “green heart.” What a stupid remark by VP Harris.

Keeping in mind that Ms Harris is vice-president almost entirely because she is somewhat black and a female,that her primary skill set appears to be the area of cheating with other women’s husbands and you have the reason why she continues to support stupid ideas.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
