Desperate times call for desperate measures. And for the cash-strapped Democratic National Committee, that means reversing a policy of not accepting money from people who are employed by fossil fuel companies.
"We have to draw the line that we are indeed a party of a big tent where all working people are welcome," said DNC Chairman Tom Perez on Friday night. "We're not a party that punishes workers simply based on how they make ends meet."
Despite the DNC's change of heart and opening of wallets on fuel donations, Perez maintains that the party is committed to fighting climate change.
We're going to hoist those idiots on their own petard ...
Why would anyone in the fossil fuel industry give them any $?
They’re sluts. Oh wait. A slut will do it with anyone BUT YOU. Guess that makes them whores now.
Situational ethics on parade.
The DNC crunched the numbers and decided that the few loony green votes they will lose matter not. Much more important that the bigwigs have their planning meetings in high fashion and exotic places...
Here we have power over principles. Or more accurately, the list for power and control overriding their facade of having any principles. They will do or say anything to get more power...
I’ve always wondered if the DNC is stashing money elsewhere because of the—Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act (Public Law 114-328) (the Act).
The Democrats having a fire sale on principles. How long before theyre begging the NRA for donations?
Nothing like standing by your convictions.
Hold on - we’ve been told how their rolls have been growing and how candidates like Beto have been raising so much cash..........
Virtue signaling is a luxury.
Planned Parenthood, with its very generous donations to the Democrat Party, can’t give enough to keep the Dem’s lying ads on TV. The sale of baby body parts must not be going too well.
To gain some political and or economical advantage over their competitors?
Tom Perez, called De Niros profane statement "**** Donald Trump" simple, but remarkably brilliant.
"If we can work this into 2018 election messages, I believe we can take back the majority, Perez said.
Perez once declared "abortion-on-demand was Democrats' ticket to victory." That didn't work....
so Perez is looking at magnacide: assisted suicide for movie stars, and mercy-killing of Hollywood elites as winning Democrat issues.
In Kansas, Repub Estes won by eight points; Dumbo Ossoff in GA failed to prevent a runoff...even after every prog/Dumbo and his second cousin from East Overshoe, USA, sent Ossoff some 10 million dollars. Earlier Democrats lost again b/c they failed to flip Zero Seats in Four Blue State Special Elections.
These latest total Democrat humiliations by the Russians occurred right after DNC genius Tom Perez bragged Democrats would show that that "resistance to Trump" could be translated into electoral victories.
To add insult to injury, the Minnesota, Connecticut, Virginia Democrat losses are the states the Russians threw to Hillary in the 2016 presidential election.
Are all of the dem state local election donations still being transferred into hillary accounts?
2008-2016: “Electricity prices MUST NECESSARILY SKYROCKET.”
“If you build a coal fired plant, we will bankrupt you.”
“You can’t just heat your house to 72 degrees and drive your SUV and other countries are going to be ok with that.”
“Inflate your tires.”
“We are raising the mileage standard to 55 mpg. Enjoy your death trap econobox.”
“Here’s a half billion dollars, Solyndra. Go make some cool solar stuff.”
2018: “Heh, heh...we were just kidding around.”
Democrats sell influence... they’re saying, “ we’re open for business”...
Total BS story - all of Hollywood and Soros are DEM supporters - they have plenty of $$.
Why would a company want to donate money to a hostile party that wants to put them out of business and make prices “necessarily skyrocket?”
