Follow the Money

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Lots of money to follow.

Let’s start with a lot of money people wish they could follow.

$1.2 Billion missing from MF Global.  You remember MF Global, run by Obama crony Jon Corzine, former democrat Senator and former Governor of New Jersey.  The guy who spent New Jersey dry and then ran up a huge debt to keep government spending at economy wreaking levels.  He left government service (i.e. he lost an election that his Republican opponent won in a landslide), and proceeded to continue his ways at MF Global.  The result was summed up nicely by Ann Barnhardt.

A firm, led by a crony of the Obama regime, stole all of the non-margined cash held by customers of his firm. Let’s not sugar-coat this or make this crime seem “complex” and “abstract” by drowning ourselves in six-dollar words and uber-technical jargon. Jon Corzine STOLE the customer cash at MF Global.

While we discussing friends of our Dear Leader, here a double header of money that deserves to be followed.

First, Solyndra, the company run by a big democrat donor, has it’s tax payer funded price tag bumped another $14.3 Million.

Second, Obama’s Half-Billion-Dollar Crony Drug Deal.  Yup, a big democrat donor gets a no-bid “sweetheart” government handout.  More of the tax payers funding our Dear Leader‘s campaign payoffs.

Moving the so-called “Occupy” criminal trespass groups, it is very clear that Orwell got it right, and some pigs are more equal than others.  No tents for the “leaders”, but $700 a night hotels.  Paid for by the rank and file who sleep in tents.  Yup, Lenin was right as well, when he called them “useful idiots.”

Let’s move to the world of bought and paid for “science”, and its poster child, James Hansen.

As Mr. Hinderaker points out, “…James Hansen, one of the two or three most prominent global warming alarmists on whose work the IPCC reports rest, “forgot” to report $1.6 million in outside income, as required by his government contracts. ”

Finally, let’s not forget the source of the ever so useful phrase, “Follow the Money.”

Follow the Money! Algore edition

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

Yes, another installment in our Follow the Money series!

This time it’s Algore at the end of the money trail!  Investors Business Daily reports:

No one has made more money from climate change hype than Gore. According to the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper, just one of the “green” companies in which Gore has invested has received over half a billion dollars in subsidies from the Energy Department.

Yup, the same Algore who made piles and piles of money selling so called  “carbon credits” by telling people that the oceans were going to rise within the next few years and flood the coasts, then bought a giant, energy consuming mansion on the southern California coast line.

Lying Liars and ClimateGate

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

First up, AGW cultist prophet in chief, Al Gore.

Michelle Malkin points out that the ManBearPig is flat out lying about the ClimateGate email scandal.

He talked with Slate magazine’s John Dickerson and repeatedly pooh-poohed the scandalous ClimateGate e-mails as “more than 10 years old,” “over 10-year-old e-mails,” and “an e-mail exchange more than 10 years ago.”

Er, the e-mails are from as recently as November 2009 — and as Anthony Watts documents and reminds folks on Planet Earth, “[a]nd there are dozens to hundreds more within the last month, the last year, and the last 10 years.”

Then there are those “1,700 scientists” who signed a “defending the “professional integrity” of global warming research.” Well, it seems that this was about as honest as the ClimateGate so called “research.”

By way of Ace, comes this news report on the matter:

Britain’s Met Office has embarked on an urgent exercise to bolster the reputation of climate-change science after the furor over leaked e-mails, referred to as “Climate-gate.”

More than 1,700 scientists have agreed to sign a statement defending the “professional integrity” of global warming research. They were responding to a round-robin request from the Met Office, which has spent four days collecting signatures. The initiative is a sign of how worried it is that e-mails stolen from the University of East Anglia are fueling skepticism about man-made global warming at a critical moment in talks on carbon emissions.

One scientist said that he felt under pressure to sign the circular or risk losing work. The Met Office admitted that many of the signatories did not work on climate change.

One scientist told The Times of London he felt pressure to sign. “The Met Office is a major employer of scientists and has long had a policy of only appointing and working with those who subscribe to their views on man-made global warming,” he said.

So, is it about the science or the funding? As the man who wrote the screenplay said, “Follow the Money”

It’s clear to see where our Dear Leader‘s priorities are.  He has spoken with the General he personally place in charge of Afghanistan twice.  He has had over 30 meetings to try to get the 2016 Olympics held the crime ridden city of Chicago.

Why this mixed up set of priorities?  Simple, as the man who wrote the screenplay said, “Follow the Money!”

While the odds are that the city of Chicago is going to loose money hosting the Olympics, there will be people who get very, very rich off all the money that will be flowing through that city for that event.

Those people will be the political cronies of the Chicago democrat political machine.  The people who supported our Dear Leader going back to his days as a “community organizer” and they now have their hands out.  Paying off those political debts, with federal tax payer money, is clearly our Dear Leader‘s priority.

Actual Science Alert!

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

A warning to AGW cultists, actual science is used in video below to dispute Al Gore’s fear mongering.

Remember kids, Al Gore founded a company that sells “Carbon Credits.” Those are modern plenary indulgence payments to the AGW Cult the gullible make. Even the New York Times calls the practice a scam. If you are wondering why someone like Al Gore, former Senator and former Vice-President of the United States of America, is participating in an obvious scam based on junk science, I suggest you follow the advice of the man who wrote the screen play.

“Follow the money.”

Update: Al Gore Lies to Congress. What else did he lie about?
