  • Tom Steyer spent $109,000 per second he spoke during 2020 presidential debate

    WESTERVILLE, Ohio — Tom Steyer failed to make a splash in his first Democratic presidential primary debate despite spending the equivalent of $109,000 per second he spoke on the stage. The 62-year-old billionaire hedge fund king-turned-impeachment activist had the least amount of speaking time of the 12 candidates during Tuesday's debate, about 7 minutes, while most other candidates got 12 minutes or more to answer moderator questions and make their points. Steyer, who has pledged to spend $100 million of his own money on his presidential bid, gave his campaign a whopping $47.6 million from his July launch through the...

    William Buckley once said he would rather be governed by the first 2,000 people in the Boston phone book than the entire Harvard faculty. After watching the October 15 Democratic Party presidential candidate debate, I would rather have as president any of the first 2,000 in any phone book in any city in the USA than the present weird bunch of Democrats. Joe Biden is out of it. He said "coupon-clippers in the stock market" should pay the same tax rates as teachers and firefighters. The "coupon-clippers" are primarily those who buy municipal bonds that are tax-free. The interest is...
  • Mike Bloomberg keeps talking to allies about running for president as Joe Biden struggles

    Mike Bloomberg has indicated to associates in recent weeks that Joe Biden’s recent struggles are making him rethink his decision to stay out of the 2020 Democratic primary, according to people familiar with the discussions. “Bloomberg is in if Biden is out,” says one source. Biden has not indicated any desire to drop out any time soon. Bloomberg could be in for a showdown with Elizabeth Warren, whether he runs or not, as he has been one of her biggest critics on the Democratic side. “I think it’s something he wants. He has not been shy about that,” one of...

    The focus of the last two weeks has been President Trump and the congressional impeachment inquiry. But next week, Democrats running for president will take center stage again. With less than four months until the first votes are cast, the scrutiny is going to become sharper and there are lots of questions facing the candidates as they head into primary crunch time:Questions discussed in the article: 1. Do any of the candidates go after Joe and Hunter Biden? 2. Does Elizabeth Warren face new scrutiny and how does she. handle it? 3. How does Sanders do, given that this is...
  • Environmentalist Tom Steyer owns a green ‘regenerative agriculture’ ranch that doesn’t work

    Billionaire Tom Steyer and his wife Kathryn Taylor own an 1,800-acre ranch in California called TomKat Ranch. Like everything Steyer spends his money on, the ranch is intended to change the world. In this case he wants to demonstrate that “regenerative agriculture” can be just as profitable as the factory farming that Steyer believes is destroying the planet. But according to Politico Magazine, Steyer’s experimental ranch isn’t producing all of the desired results thus far:

    The October debate, hosted by CNN and the New York Times, is set for a single night on Oct. 15, the Democratic National Committee told the presidential campaigns Friday. "To address several inquiries we have received, we are writing to let you know that, pending a final decision after the certification deadline, it is the intention of the DNC and our media partners to hold the October debate over one night," the DNC wrote in a memo obtained by ABC News. **SNIP** Twelve candidates are currently qualified for the upcoming matchup, according to an ABC News analysis: Former Vice President...
  • George Soros Emerges as Major Funder of ‘Global Climate Strike’ Groups

    breitbart ^ | 28 Sep 2019 | THOMAS D. WILLIAMS,
    George Soros financed radical environmental groups partnering in this week’s “Global Climate Strike” to the tune of nearly $25 million, according to a new report. At least 22 of the left-wing activist groups listed as partners in the Global Climate Strike received $24,854,592 in funding from liberal billionaire George Soros between 2000-2017 through his Open Society Network. Though ostensibly ignited by the protests of 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, the Global Climate Strike has borne from the outset the indelible fingerprints of well-funded, radical environmental activists. As it turns out, much of the funding has been coming from George Soros. Among the...

    We haven’t even made it to the Democratic debates in Houston this week but the candidates are already jockeying for position in the October debates to be held in Ohio. And for reasons that remain a total mystery to me, billionaire liberal activist Tom Steyer has somehow qualified for that round. (Steyer won’t be on the stage in Houston this week as he didn’t manage to score well enough in four approved polls.) So where is this support coming from? (Boston Globe) Tom Steyer, the billionaire and former hedge fund investor turned impeachment activist, became the 11th Democratic presidential...

    Bye bye Biden. As Joe stinks to 19 percent and 22 percent in the latest Monmouth (8/26) and Economist/UGov (8/21) polls, putting him in a statistical tie with Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren for the first time, there is an opening for former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the Democratic primary. Here’s how it might come about: Step One: Biden fades into a tie with Sanders and Warren (already happening) and then falls to third place. Biden has no way to come back. He is the candidate of events that happened between 2008-2016. If the past is not...

    To make it on stage at the September Democratic presidential debate, candidates must have 130,000 unique donors and garner 2 percent or more in at least four polls approved by the Democratic National Committee. Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard, progressive mega-donor Tom Steyer, and New Age author Marianne Williamson each met the donor requirement but will apparently fail to hit the polling requirement.

    'No justice, no peace!' they chanted Libertarian philanthropist David Koch has passed away at the age of 79. He, along with his brother Charles Koch, was one of the most reviled individuals in American politics among journalists and other left-wing activists, even when they were doing ostensibly uncontroversial things such as donating large amounts of money to a hospital. In March 2014, liberal activist groups staged a protest outside the planned site of the David H. Koch Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan. The center was funded in part by a $100 million donation from the man Democratic billionaire...

    Joe Biden survived the second round of Democratic presidential debates, but it became more apparent that over half the 22-person field is irrelevant and should get out, the sooner the better. The former vice president was repeatedly under attack on health care, criminal justice, immigration and abortion. He stumbled sometimes, but overall was sharper than his mediocre performance in the first debate a month ago. This won't assuage fears of mainstream Democrats that the 76-year-old Biden may not be up to the challenge of a protracted primary fight and bitter battle against Donald Trump. Still he was sufficiently engaged to...
  • Revealed: Tom Steyer’s Firm Funded Coal Plants in Australia, China, and Indonesia

    Under Steyer’s watch, Farallon Capital invested in coal plants in China, Indonesia, even Australia, where a newly constructed plant in New South Wales is expected to churn out coal for the next 30 years. The mine’s 2014 groundbreaking, which occurred in an Australian state forest, inspired a veteran to stand in front of a bulldozer and a music teacher to chain himself to a piece of excavation equipment. All told, the coal mines increased their production by more than 70 million tons of coal since getting investment from Steyer. As the New York Times noted, that’s more than Britain consumes...

    They are a match made in their political heaven. Tom Steyer and his money along with Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and her Justice Democrats. As the 2020 election nears, they will be two of the generals in the Democrats’ civil war. The party that loses the White House often struggles to find unity. When Barack Obama defeated John McCain, the Republicans struggled to find a unifying leader and a unifying message for years. With Trump in the White House and his 90 percent approval rating among Republicans, according to Gallup, Republicans are unified. The Democrats are not. On the contrary, the Democrats...

    PHILADELPHIA — Rep. Rashida Tlaib stood firm in her conviction that President Trump will be impeached while speaking to an audience of liberals Saturday. “We’re going to impeach the MF’er, don’t worry!” she said to huge applause at Netroots Nation, echoing a line from January that drew criticism for its profanity. “I will not back down impeaching this lawless president. He will not be above the law and get away with it on my watch,” the Michigan Democrat said. “Stay strong. Stay strong on this. If we don’t call him out, if we don’t push for this … who is...
  • Nancy Pelosi's allies swell number of Democrats seeking to impeach Trump (not really)

    The ranks of pro-impeachment-inquiry Democrats are growing each week, but it’s still not enough to move the needle for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. As of last week, more than 80 Democrats were calling for an impeachment inquiry, which is a critical first step toward attempting to oust the president. Most strikingly, the count now includes some devoted Pelosi supporters. Reps. Janice D. Schakowsky of Illinois, Joseph P. Kennedy III of Massachusetts and Eric Swalwell of California have joined the inquiry camp in the past few weeks. But the pro-impeachment forces still make up only slightly more than one-third of the...

    In the House of Representatives the apparently frustrated Democratic congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, had one question for the leadership of her party: when would they impeach Donald Trump? “The thing that we’re struggling with is that we don’t know what we’re waiting for in terms of a caucus. And folks that are saying, ‘No, not yet. Not yet.’ OK – accepting that that’s your position, what are you waiting for?” the New York socialist said to reporters this week. “Are you waiting for some kind of revelation?" That’s a question a growing number of Democrats are asking. Dozens of Democrats on...

    It's as obvious as the nose on your face. The Democrats are going to vote impeach Trump without a specifying crime. They will say he colluded with the Russians, despite the Mueller report says that he did not. They will say he Obstructed Justice by firing FBI director Comey (but not firing the Special Counsel Mueller). They will make up, out of whole cloth whatever is necessary to support a vote on Trumps Impeachment in the U.S.House of Representatives. They will do this to weaken Trump in the next election, as they know the vote has no chance in the...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday ruled out censuring President Trump if the House doesn’t impeach him, downplaying a less drastic censure as ‘‘a day at the beach’’ for the president. Pelosi, a California Democrat, told reporters at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor that censure would be ‘‘just a way out’’ of House Democrats’ efforts to see if Trump has committed impeachable offenses. ‘‘If you’re going to go, you ought to go. In other words, if the goods are there, you must impeach,’’ she said....
