    Canadian pipeline operator TC Energy is moving forward with plans to build the controversial Keystone XL Pipeline, a project to move heavy crude oil from the tar sands region of Canada to Nebraska where it will then move on to refineries in Illinois and along the Gulf Coast. After years of legal battles, TC Energy confirmed Tuesday morning that the company plans to invest $8 billion on the crude oil pipeline project. The controversial pipeline project faced opposition and legal challenges from Native American groups, environmentalists and landowners. “We appreciate the ongoing backing of landowners, customers, Indigenous groups and numerous...
  • Billionaire Bumblers: Bloomberg, Steyer Spent at Least $1,063,718,074 Trying to Oust Trump

    Liberal billionaires Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer spent over $1 billion in their attempt to oust President Donald Trump from office, an effort that began even before their 2020 presidential campaigns. Adding Steyer’s 2017-2018 spending ($123 million) to both billionaires' current estimated campaign spending totals, a whopping $1,063,718,074 was spent in an attempt to oust Trump. To put this into perspective, that’s just less than approximately $600 million shy of Steyer’s entire net worth estimated at $1.6 billion.
  • Was Tom Steyer’s Campaign the Worst in Presidential History? Billionaire spent $3,373 per vote and earned zero delegates

    California Globe ^ | February 29, 2020 8:01 pm | By Ken Kurson,
    With the results in from South Carolina, a strong case can be made that Tom Steyer has just concluded the worst campaign in the history of presidential politics. Steyer, the California-based founder of Farallon Capital and the co-founder of Onecalifornia Bank and Beneficial State Bank, became a household name – at least among those households with MSNBC – by being the single largest funder of efforts to impeach President Trump. After telling reporters in January 2019 that he would not seek the presidency, Steyer exercised his prerogative to change his mind and declared his candidacy in July. According to the...

    Billionaire Tom Steyer wasted over $252 million on his failed presidential campaign, according to federal election records. The campaign finance report filed on January 30, showed Steyer spent $252,841,942 on his campaign, according to Open Secrets. Millions more were likely spent as Steyer continued to advertise in Nevada and South Carolina before calling it quits on February 29. “Honestly, I can’t see a path where I can win the presidency,” Steyer said on Saturday night, sharing his decision to end his campaign. Steyer was a self-funding billionaire candidate, as 98 percent of his campaign money came from his own pocket....

    Former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer announced Saturday night he was ending his campaign for the Democratic nomination after a disappointing finish in the South Carolina primary. “I said if I didn’t see a path to winning that I would suspend my campaign and honestly I don’t see a path where I can win the presidency,” said Steyer at an event in Columbia, adding that he would “of course” be supporting the eventual nominee because they’re all “a million times better than Trump.” “When the Lord closes a door, he opens a window,” continued Steyer, “I will find that window...

Steyer made the announcement following a disappointing finish in the South Carolina Democratic primary Saturday night. With 56 percent of the vote in, Steyer had just 11.7 percent of the vote — despite spending millions of dollars on campaigning there.

    Steyer grabbed the mic, bent his knees and stuck out his behind to the rhythm of the 1999 hit, that taught a generation of how to 'drop it like it's hot.' . . . Kat Taylor, speaking to the crowd she stayed with the musical theme and started singing, holding up her smart phone and reading the lyrics, that mentioned 'reparations' and other policy proposals the candidate supports. Once it was Steyer's turn he talked about falling in love with the people of South Carolina - though joked he had only met the Democrats.

Steyer has reportedly spent a whopping $23.6 million on campaign advertising just in South Carolina alone, according to NPR Politics deputy editor Ben Swasey’s summary of Advertising Analytics data Feb. 27.

    There's profound skepticism in Congress about Sanders' ability to get his agenda passed. Two-thirds of Democrats in the Senate have not signed on to Medicare for All, which would cost an estimated $30 trillion to $40 trillion over ten years. And that's just one of Bernie Sanders' many proposals. There's also free public college, cancellation of all student debt, a federal job guarantee, and a Green New Deal to rapidly reduce carbon emissions. Anderson Cooper: How much will that cost? Bernie Sanders: Obviously, those are expensive propositions, but we have done our best on issue after issue-- in paying for...

    It won't be #NotMeUs, it will be #NotMeYou. Driven by Bernie having his millions, combined with proletariat grievance politics and jealousy, with the middle class caught in the middle. The backstory that leads to now: Bernie didn't have a full-time job until he was almost forty, worked sporadically until then, and apparently mooched off of others to survive. He then landed a mayorship near that age after a friend suggested he run for it. Since then, he has continued to live off of others (the taxpayers) and promised to take other people's money (through grievance politics) just as he has...

  • Billionaire Bloomberg Replaces Billionaire Steyer on Democrat Debate Stage

    The battle of the Democrat money men running for president is playing out in high-roller Las Vegas as billionaire Mike Bloomberg replaces billionaire Tom Steyer on the debate stage Wednesday night. Steyer did not meet the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) threshold by the Tuesday midnight deadline. And while voters can cast their ballot for Steyer in Nevada, Bloomberg’s name is not one of the candidates on it. Steyer, who took part in the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth debates is not happy about the development, Politico reports: Steyer’s campaign has cried foul at his likely exclusion, arguing that his...

    RENO, Nevada — Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer would have qualified for Wednesday’s Democrat debate by Monday evening, but the arcane rules of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) may keep him from the stage. With barely 24 hours to go before the 11:59 p.m. ET deadline on Tuesday, Steyer has yet to meet the minimum criteria of receiving “10% or more support in at least four polls (which may be national polls, or single-state polls of South Carolina, and/or Nevada) ” or “12% or more support in two single-state polls in South Carolina and/or Nevada.”
