ACLU loses its biggest donor: $19 million a year
vanity ^

Posted on 12/10/2009 3:22:58 PM PST by publius321

Gelbaum said in a statement. "My investments in alternative, clean energy companies have placed me in a highly illiquid position as a result of the general credit crisis in the American and world financial systems."

(Click link above for column)

Oh goodness, I hope that someone else steps in and fills the gap because we desperately need someone to continue the desecration of everything we hold dear.

We need more people to spit on the graves of our veterans by removing crosses that have served as war memorials for the past 75 years.

We need someone to remove Christian symbols from state seals that have been there for hundreds of years.

We need someone to bring a stop to kids offering prayers at football games that have traditionally taken place going back at least to the 1950's.

What will we do if these pillars of society were to fade away??????

Gelbaum’s the guy that bribed Carl Pope of the Sierra Club to change that organization’s longstanding position on limiting immigration to the United States.

If Gelbaum’s having financial difficulties, that’s great news, on a number of levels.

Just finished a book on the Eron scandal, one thing I took from it is that most green energy investments schemes are scams.

Green energy has to be scammed, it simply cannot compete with fossil fuel or nuclear energy. An it’s not just off by a little bit.

He is just asking O for a bail out.

Now, google and dive into his “The Quercus Trust” one of the most secretive trust in the world.

So this guy is saying that money is more important than fundamental civil rights?

Yes, I just can’t believe he actually bought this stuff. He apparently wasn’t at the top of the pyramid in this pump and dump. He must be loving Gore right now.

Very nice. I hope Bernie Madoff scampered off with some of this guy’s money, and Al Gore got the rest!

I don't have time to read this article now but I do want to read it later. I use the ping as a bookmark so I can find it later in my comments section. You will typically see pings all over FR for this reason.

Pings are often used to bring a poster’s attention to a thread of possible interest..

AP Headline:

"Private Sector Failure Triggers Federal Stimulus of ACLU"


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

Thanks for explaining this to me truth. I’ve seen this for years and always wondered. Why don’t they just make a “Bookmark” function? “This one goes to eleven?”

A small correction. Many members of the Sierra Club have come to their senses and realized that no amount of environmental regulations and such will work to save the environment they cherish in the face of titanic population growth. I know this because one of my friends is a member of the Sierra Club and this is talked about often at meetings and gatherings according to him. We cannot conserve enough to save the American Wilderness if we are going to have a billion people in the United States. It isn't possible. But a billion people is where we are headed if we don't do something about immigration both legal and illegal. So there is a movement within the Sierra Club to make immigration a major issue. Thus far the Sierra Club has been more of less neutral on this issue. This is the 800 lb Gorilla in the living room.

Gelbaum is the largest individual contributor to the Sierra Club I'm told. I cannot confirm this but this is what I hear. He has given them millions. He is absolutely against any controls on immigration. This is why many in the club question his sincerity on environmental issues. But he's got the big checkbook so nobody will challenge him. Many members are nearly in revolt because of this man.

Gelbaum is the type of guy we all here at FR love to hate. He's a liberals liberal. He's on the wrong side of every issue and he doesn't mind using his fortune to get his way. Of course his fortune was made in the Hedge Fund area. This is the way most liberals made their money, financial manipulation. Very few liberals make their money by manufacturing or providing useful services. They are mostly money men. That's why New York is filled to the brim with this type of guy. However I think Gelbaum lives in the SF Bay area if I'm not mistaken. Or course he lives in a very exclusive area with security and the like. He's one of the chosen ones.

I wish I could think of a way to get at these guys where it would really hurt and that's the pocketbook. Of course Soros is the worst of the worst. But one thing I can say about liberals with big money. They don't mind shelling it out. Obama must have had a lot of cash from these types of guys. It's the only way he could have generated the type of money he had. I cannot believe he got the money he got with $10 and $20 donations on the Internet. I refuse to believe it.
