Five Senate Democrats looking at tough reelection fights may face a new obstacle: environmental activists livid at their public support for the Keystone XL pipeline.
Last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) criticized his colleague Jerry Moran (R., Kan.) for advancing the “Republican Koch agenda.” While speaking on the Senate floor, Moran had read from a Wall Street Journal op-ed by Charles Koch, who Reid has described as “un-American.”
“My Republican colleagues,” Reid said, were “falling all over themselves” to advance the “radical philosophy” of Charles and David Koch, who has frequently sought to undermine America by donating money to hospitals and the arts.
Democrats, on the other hand, would never kowtow to wealthy liberals such as Tom Steyer (and his older, poorer brother, Jim), who has pledged to spend at least $100 million backing Democrats who support aggressive government action to address the scientific theory known as “climate change.”
Some lies just won’t go away. In February the Washington Post published an article with the following headline: “Why There’s No Democratic Version of the Koch Brothers’ Organization.” It was the umpteenth attempt to explain, in a particularly simplistic manner, how the millionaires and billionaires who donate money to the Democratic Party are nothing, absolutely nothing, like those meanie cancer research philanthropists Charles and David Koch.
Move over, Koch brothers. There’s a new dynamic duo in town, and they’re super serious about making a difference.
Liberal billionaire and reluctant democracy advocate Tom Steyer has pledged to spend at least $100 million backing candidates who support higher taxes and crippling regulations to combat the scientific theory known as “climate change.” He also has a brother named Jim.
Left-wing billionaire hedge fund tycoon Tom Steyer believes in democracy, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.
“We absolutely believe in the democratic process,” Steyer told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd on Friday, presumably speaking in the majestic plural. “That is the process which we believe America and Americans use for major social changes.”
Only a few weeks into this midterm year, the left-wing political Superfortress is pumping its tank full of dark money and arming a massive payload with which to carpet bomb the American public with falsehoods about opponents of the Obama administration’s eco-genocide of bald eagles.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) attacked a pair of pro-Constitution billionaires on Tuesday in an effort to gin up support for the Democratic campaign to raise the minimum wage.
Democrats who oppose the Keystone XL pipeline have thousands of dollars invested in direct competitors to the company looking to build the pipeline, public records show.
