Green Energy Billionaire Threatens to Destroy Democratic Senators Who Stand in His Way

It’s terrible when the 1 percent have so much control over national politics. Just kidding, it’s great. We’re headed toward a wonderful oligarchy of liberal billionaires laying out acceptable policies and destroying everyone who stands in their way.
A California billionaire is pledging to spend as much of his fortune as necessary to make climate change “the defining issue of our generation.”
Coincidentally, that billionaire’s fortune, comes from Green Energy “investments” which go big thanks to government intervention and the myth of Global Warming\Climate Change\Sky is Falling.
But I’m sure that’s a complete coincidence. In other coincidental news, Bill Gates is pledging to spend as much of his fortune as necessary to make buying a Windows PC “the defining issue of our generation.”
“The goal here is not to win. The goal here is to destroy these people. We want a smashing victory,” Steyer said of candidates he judges to be on the wrong side of the climate change debate.
So we’ve got Bloomberg mandating national policy on gun control, Steyer mandating national policy on global warming and other billionaires picking their own issue and mandating policy on that.
Isn’t liberal oligarchy great?
Obama was hosted in San Francisco Wednesday night at the spectacular mansion-with-a-Pacific Ocean-view of private equity billionaire Tom Steyer, the scion of a wealthy New York family (say, isn’t this the guy Obama beat in the fall election?). Their goal? Raise money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee to help restore California’s Nancy Pelosi – also in attendance – as speaker in 2014.
“Should we go back to the boom-and-bust, ‘drill-baby-drill,’ polluting energy policies of yesterday, or should we embrace an advanced energy economy that meets opportunity with innovation? ” said Steyer, a passionate member of the Green Church, at last year’s Democratic Convention.
Obviously the latter. Why? Because green start-up businesses are where Steyer’s greenventure capital firm has put its money.
Renewable energy investor Greener Capital is the name, and rent-seeking is the game.
The more Obama presses anti-coal mandates and Keystone Pipeline delays, the more money Mr. Steyer makes. Last fall, he lobbied against Proposition 23, which would have reversed California’s landmark global warming law that mandates 33 percent of the state’s power in 2020 come from the renewables Greener Capital is vested in. Prop 23 was bad business for ol’ One Percent Steyer.
The American economy is being looted and bankrupted by a collusion between ecoscammers and their political allies. And democracy is being shut by an oligarchy of liberal billionaires determined to use dirty money to rig elections.
