Meet The Man Who Killed Keystone (Liberal Billionaire Thomas Steyer)
Mises Canada ^ | 5/16/2014 | Wendy McElroy

Posted on 05/16/2014 1:49:38 PM PDT by mojito

On May 12, the United States Senate fell 5 votes short of the 60 required to invoke cloture. (Cloture is a way to close debate and cause an immediate vote on a bill.) The measure in question was the first energy bill to have hit that chamber since 2007. It was killed by the Keystone XL Pipeline project which would funnel Canadian crude oil from Alberta down to Texas refineries.....

The stakes were especially high for about a half-dozen Democrats who do not tow the anti-Keystone line of fellow Democratic Senators. The dissidents come from states that are dependent on the oil or gas industry; they are nervously facing a tough re-election battle in November 2014. One of them is the influential new chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana. As the new chairman, she’s been campaigning for re-election on the promise of “getting things done,” which is clearly not the case.

One man stands in her way. No, not President Obama, but the billionaire environmentalist Thomas Steyer. The leftwing Steyer undoubtedly is sincere in his green beliefs but sincerity on an issue is easier if you also stand to make a fortune from it. The conservative Daily Caller (Nov. 8, 2013) noted, “Most of Steyer’s $1.4 billion fortune came through investments in fossil fuels. In fact, Steyer’s biggest cash cow is Farallon Capital Management. Farallon has stakes in a number of oil, gas and pipeline companies, including a large investment in Kinder Morgan, an oil and gas pipeline outfit that plans to expand its own TransMountain pipeline to transport oil from Alberta to refineries and shipping terminals in the U.S. and Canada.” (Steyer actually founded Farallon with $15 million in start-up money.)

He’s a factor, but don’t count out Warren “railroad man” Buffet as a big influence also.

When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you, your nation is doomed.

Is he LGBT? Has he had a transplant? Has he ever been ‘married’. Does he use the ‘N’ word in unguarded moments? Do his companies pay gender-equally?

The world wants to know!

I forgot. Any drug history? Has anybody seen his passport?

Thomas Steyer goes on the SHTF list.

I haven’t seen anything directly associating him with say, Planned Parenthood, but he’s a big lib, so I would assume he supports abortion on demand.

I think he qualifies for a ‘Pitchfork Rally’ in front of his mansion/estate.

When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.

I’ll leave those weighty decisions to the starving feral mobs. ;^)

Don’t forget, does he have a history of bullying sissies in fourth grade?

Was he bullied in the fourth grade? I mean called something really nasty and mean like ‘leftard pu$$y’?

This alone could have sent him on a lifetime crusade to destroy American civilization.

‘Pitchfork Rallies’ are the answer.

In front of their homes, offices, clubs. (No I didn’t mean anything homophobic when I wrote ‘club’.)

Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of using the left’s tactics against them. Digging up some incident from his past, no matter how obscure and meaningless, then blow it up into some gigantic issue.

Remember Romney and the sissy he beat up on in the sixth grade?

That approach would work with a media on our side.

Maybe, someday, we’ll come up with the effective tactic.

Nobody proof reads any more. It’s “toe” the line. Not “tow” the line.
