Billionaires, especially liberal ones, aren’t just funding candidates and impeachment campaigns in 2018. Many are also funding ballot initiatives around the country, mostly in states they don’t live in.
The Center for Public Integrity (CPI) found that 34 billionaires including liberals George Soros, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg and Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg spent a combined $78 million on statewide ballot measures this year. The story was co-published by the left-wing magazine The Atlantic.
Both the media and liberal billionaire Tom Steyer are preoccupied with the potential for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, according to Fox News hosts and MRC’s Dan Gainor. “Remember going back even before he took office, you had people calling for his impeachment,” Gainor told Fox & Friends on Aug. 27. “The left has been out to get him the whole time.”
After already committing $110 million to his midterm efforts, California billionaire Tom Steyer said he would spend even more to turn out liberal voters in November.
At a Lansing, Mich., town hall on Aug. 13, Steyer announced he would spent another $10 million on a “Need to Vote” campaign through his Need to Impeach organization. He told the crowd they are in a “fight to save the soul of America.”
The midterm elections are slightly more than three months away, and already the Impeach Trump crusader Tom Steyer plans to spend at least $110 million on this election cycle.
Politico reported on July 31, that it will make the California billionaire “the largest single source of campaign cash on the left.” Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has committed $80 million to try to “flip the House.”
In a recent Rolling Stone interview, liberal billionaire Tom Steyer said perhaps a “nuclear war” would turn people against President Donald Trump, and “then we get a real course correction.” Contributing editor Tim Dickinson barely pushed back, simply saying, “Wow — that’s ... sobering.”
Progressive radio host Thom Hartmann has some advice for impeachment crusader Tom Steyer — buy a radio network.
Hartmann wrote on left-wing Salon on June 26, “If liberal billionaires like Tom Steyer want to have a real and lasting impact on American politics, they should think seriously about buying a nationwide radio network.”
In case there’s any doubt left about the political leanings of billionaire media mogul Michael Bloomberg. The former Republican, turned “Independent” announced he will spend $80 million supporting Democrats in the 2018 midterm elections.
Tom Steyer, the billionaire liberal donor spending millions to try to impeach President Donald Trump, blasted his Democratic critics in a Politico podcast on May 29.
Steyer said many things in the Off Message political podcast hosted by Isaac Dovere — including comparing Democratic pushback against his impeachment efforts to opposition to the civil rights movement, said Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and others are “normalizing” Trump’s presidency and attempted to downplay his own huge political spending.
Billionaire Tom Steyer is still digging out from under his response to a question about whether President Donald Trump is like “Hitler.” Near the end of an MSNBC interview about his impeachment efforts, someone in the liberal media finally asked liberal “activist” Steyer about the Trump/Hitler comparison a woman made to Steyer last week.
When a conservative says something crazy, it makes headlines. When a liberal does you can hear the crickets.
Liberal mega-donor Tom Steyer recently entertained comparisons between President Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler at one of his impeachment rallies. But his absurd conversation was not reported by the broadcast networks or major newspapers, according to Nexis. Steyer has spent or pledged at least $236 million to help liberal candidates, or oppose Republicans since the 2014 election cycle.
Most people celebrate Mother’s Day by doing something special for their mom. But billionaire liberal donor Tom Steyer marked the holiday with political ad full of bigoted caricatures of Trump supporters and Republicans.
Perhaps understandably, the establishment press ignored a Saturday Washington rally advocating slavery reparations. But as Brent Scher and Joe Schoffstall at the Washington Free Beacon reported last week, reparations is a key agenda item of a "wealthy Democratic donor club plotting the future of the liberal movement," meaning that Democrats appear to be largely in sync with the mindset of those who attended Saturday's rally. Scher's and Schoffstall's work has also been ignored.
