    Democratic Global Warming Legerdemain

    March 12, 2014 by Bob Livingston

    SCREENSHOT
    Senators took turns reading The Lorax.

    Senate Democrats spent Monday night on a massive distraction campaign.

    After final votes in the Chamber had taken place, 28 climate alarmists pulled a political stunt “to raise public awareness about global warming and how to stem it.” A compliant media went into overdrive to publicize the event.

    The campaign served three purposes. First, it provided a distraction from the ongoing failure of President Barack Obama to extricate himself from the Ukraine crisis he, his State Department and various non-governmental organizations created on behalf of the EU and globalist power brokers.

    Second, it provided a distraction from the ongoing failure of Obamacare, the ongoing global economic malaise caused by money printing and myriad scandals threatening to envelop the regime of the undocumented White House usurper: Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservatives, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, National Security Agency spying, gun running to terrorists, drone-bombing innocents and American citizens without due process, etc.

    Third, it was yet another attempt to prop up a failing meme. Man-caused global warming is a hoax being perpetrated on the American people and the American economy and is nothing more than massive scheme to redistribute wealth from wealthy nations to poor ones and into the pockets of select globalist corporations.

    The climate alarmists’ legerdemain doubtless has David Copperfield envious.

    It works out to around $238,000 per hour

    What Does It Cost To Rent A Democrat Senator?

    (NRSC) How much does it cost to rent the Senate floor (and 30 United States Senators) for 24 hours? By the looks of it, more than $100 million. Last night, the majority of Democrats engaged in a so-called, “talk-a-thon” to protest climate change and advocate for policies that hurt American energy development. Yes, this is the same Democrat majority that has controlled Washington since 2009.
    As the Los Angeles Times reports, “There has been little talk of legislation to tackle climate change in Congress since 2010, when a bill to reduce carbon emissions died in the Senate. But as they rev up for the midterm elections, Democrats are heeding the call of California billionaire Tom Steyer, who has pledged $100 million to back candidates with a program to curb climate change.” The Washington Post is even more blunt: “…There is another more political reason for the decision by Senate Democrats to devote their time to the issue right now. And that issue is campaign cash. Environmental groups spent about $20 million on ads and other activities to help Democrats in 2012 and gave about $742,000 directly to candidates during the cycle… Then there’s the billionaire businessman Thomas Steyer. …Steyer hosted a recent fundraiser at his San Francisco home that netted the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee $400,000 and where Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and the six other Democratic senators in attendance openly discussed plans for tonight’s talkathon, according to reports.”
    $100 billion for just about 15 hours, or $6 million per hour. To accomplish…. nothing. As USA Today lamented, “The Democratic effort is cause for some confusion because these senators are calling for action in a chamber they control but without any specific legislation to offer up for a vote, or any timetable for action this year.”
    So, if you consider $100 million, 15 hours, 28 Warmist Democrat Senators, that’s around $238,000 per hour to do nothing more than yammer on an on, all while insulting people with opposite views as “deniers”, equating them with those who do not believe in the Holocaust.
    The problem for Senate Democrats is that being beholden to extremists exposes another vulnerability for Senators already in danger of losing their seat like Mark Udall, Mark Begich, Kay Hagan, Mark Warner, Mark Pryor, Jeanne Shaheen and especially newly named Energy & Natural Resources Chair Mary Landrieu. The Democrats’ talk-a-thon makes clear that Landrieu is the Chair in name only, and instead is beholden to whatever Harry Reid wants. Mary Landrieu always brags about being a committee chairman – we all know she talks a good game, problem is – Mary Landrieu just never delivers results.
    None of those Senators were in attendance during the sleepover. I’d be surprised if they were even near Washington Monday night. I’m sure they had “prior engagements”.
    And then all the sleepover attendees jumped in their fossil fueled vehicles to head home, where the appliances were not unplugged while they were away.

    What the Senate’s all-nighter on climate change is really about

    BY ED O'KEEFE



    March 10 at 4:13 pm


    Dozens of Democratic senators plan to speak out Monday night into early Tuesday morning about their growing concerns with climate change. Adopting a strategy used in the past year to great effect by Republican senators -- Ted Cruz, anyone? -- at least 28 Democrats plan to use floor time to raise their concerns on the lack of attention being paid to climate change -- although there is no single bill or even set of bills for which they will be advocating.
    Tonight's program "isn’t about a particular bill," said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), who helped organize the talkathon. "This is about trying to raise the profile and being to gain some momentum on this issue. Then I think we’re in a position to ask corporate America and other groups and organizations to get more engaged and open the kind of space it will take to pass a bill. But the first thing we have to show is that we’re engaged ourselves."

    That all sounds nice. And we have no doubt that Whitehouse is genuine in his desire to raise the profile of climate issues. But, there is another more political reason for the decision by Senate Democrats to devote their time to the issue right now. And that issue is campaign cash.
    Environmental groups spent about $20 million on ads and other activities to help Democrats in 2012 and gave about $742,000 directly to candidates during the cycle,according to the Center for Responsive Politics. During last year's Virginia gubernatorial election, the League of Conservation Voters was the biggest outside spender in the race between Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli, and ran television ads targeting Cuccinelli for suggesting that global warming is not linked to human activity. Already in this cycle the group is running ads on behalf of Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), who is locked in a bitter Democratic primary and is a lead organizer of Monday evening's events.
    Then there's the billionaire businessman Thomas Steyer. He's quickly emerged as a new and much-needed source of campaign money for Democrats eager to find ways to match the rise of conservative donors who are using new super PACs to spend millions of dollars attacking congressional Democrats on the airwaves. Steyer has put more than $11.1 million into two super PACs to help McAuliffe and now-Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) in his special election race, according to a review of campaign finance records by the Center for Public Integrity.
    Steyer hosted a recent fundraiser at his San Francisco home that netted the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee $400,000 and where Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and the six other Democratic senators in attendance openly discussed plans for tonight's talkathon, according to reports. Reid also has vowed to allow his colleagues to discuss the issue during their weekly lunches and on the Senate floor.
    This year, Steyer plans to go much farther by using his advocacy group, NextGen Political Action, to spend about $100 million to help Democratic congressional candidates. Half of the money will come from his fortune as a former hedge-fun manager, while the other half will, he hopes, come from donors.
    The group plans to refuse to spend money on behalf of Democrats who oppose climate regulation, but will not spend money against them either. That's why none of the Democratic senators facing especially tricky reelection races this year -- Sens. Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) especially -- plan to speak out Monday night. They won't lose anything by not showing up, but they also won't open themselves up to attack from conservatives who could try tying them to the environmental lobby.
    And, for those Democrats -- and interested donors -- who really do care about the issue, it's an opportunity to show just how much they care. Even if no one expects anything to come of it.
