Leftist “Billionaire’s Club” Controls Barack Obama’s EPA

HERE’S THE OTHER SIDE OF THE IRS SCANDAL … It didn’t get a lot of ink in the mainstream press, but a report was released a few weeks ago by Republican members of the U.S. Senate committee on the environment and public works … one with some pretty damning implications….


It didn’t get a lot of ink in the mainstream press, but a report was released a few weeks ago by Republican members of the U.S. Senate committee on the environment and public works … one with some pretty damning implications.

According to the report, U.S. President Barack Obama‘s chronically over-reaching Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is nothing but the puppet of a secret “Billionaire’s Club” of radical environmentalists.

Which explains the agency’s ongoing efforts to assail the American free market at the expense of fuzzy science.

Anyway, according to the report this Billionaire’s Club “directs and controls the far left environmental movement, which in turn controls major policy decisions” issued by the EPA.  And it does so via a totally anti-transparent network that “provides significant insulation to these wealthy elite from the incidental damage they do to the U.S. economy and average Americans.”

“These wealthy liberals fully exploit the benefits of a generous tax code meant to promote genuine philanthropy and charitable acts, amazingly with little apparent Internal Revenue Service scrutiny,” the report alleges. “Instead of furthering a noble purpose, their tax deductible contributions secretly flow to a select group of left wing activists who are complicit and eager to participate in a fee-for-service arrangement to promote shared political goals.”

Sounds like the sort of thing the IRS should be looking into, right?

More on that in a moment …

Among the groups implicated in anti-transparent behavior?  The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Schmidt Family Foundation, the Sea Change Foundation, the Park Foundation and the Marisla Foundation.

Also listed are the Tides Foundation, Energy Foundation, ClimateWorks Foundation and the Sustainable Markets Foundation.

So … what sort of methods do these groups employ in order to exert their political influence?

“A novel innovation unique to the left is the proliferation of a fiscal sponsor relationship, whereby the charity actually sells its nonprofit status to a group for a fee,” the report reveals. “Through this arrangement, the fiscal sponsor serves as the official recipient of charitable donations for an organization unrecognized by the IRS.”

According to the report the IRS has previously signed off on relationships like this in specific short-term emergency situations, but adds that “in the realm of the far-left environmental movement, fiscal sponsorship arrangements are far from temporary and usually around for several years or more.

“One fiscal sponsorship arrangement has existed for over 23 years, and the sponsored entity has indicated no plans to properly establish its own nonprofit status,” the report alleges.

Wow …

FITS readers are no stranger to radical environmentalists seeking to hide their involvement/ investment in political action.  South Carolina was ground zero for such a deceptive campaign back in 2009-10 – when U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) was the only member of the U.S. Congress to embrace Obama’s radical “cap and trade” energy tax.

We exposed that campaign for what it was, though …

It’s also hard to ignore the double standard at work here by the IRS – which engages in full-scale discrimination and intimidation of limited government groups with no justification, but permits such behavior by the radical left to go completely unchallenged.

Behavior that is directly contributing to the EPA’s radical overreach.

Don’t even know what to say about this. A bunch of Republican Kochsuckers write a partisan report accusing Obama of being influenced by billionaires. Who is paying for this political ad? I think we all know.

B-b-b-b-but it’s anti-transparent behavior! That’s totally unacceptable!!!!!!!!*

*Does not apply to Howard Rich.

meant to promote genuine philanthropy and charitable acts

Instead of furthering a noble purpose

Sounds like the Citizens United decision to me.

Also, lol @ protecting the environment not amounting to “genuine philanthropy,” “charitable acts,” or a “noble purpose” by Republicans.

Hell, it could be worse…..it could be a “rightest” organization like Koch Bros. Oh wait! They do it, too!

Mr. Koch, is there anything else you wanted in this report? Did we leave anything out. Did you want us to say anything differently. If so, please let us know. Oh, and when should we expect those contributions, you know campaign season is upon us. Not that this report has anything to do with that, as we cannot coordinate with you.

Sincerely yours
Reince Priebus

EPA is now a paper tiger. It delegates money and program oversight to state agencies rife with incompetence, timidity, and control by local politicians who make sure little is enforced properly by the book. EPA then looks the other way and has no real oversight as to how the programs it funds really operate. We the public are paying a whole lot of money not to be protected.

What is a leftist billionaire? I don’t think such a person exists. Billionaires with a basic sense of fairness and stewardship, yes. I guess to some people, that is “leftist.”

A “leftist billionaire ” would George Soros, the most evil one human on the planet.

fiscal sponsorship arrangements?
Liberals aren’t smart/cunning enough to figure this out on their own.

I have long been of the opinion that oil interests in the middle east have been funneling money to these “foundations” and “environmental orgs” for a long time. How else do they always have the money to drag out each and every improvement in our way of life, making even the smallest project take longer and cost much more ? All the environmental regs. that have been piled on to what were once good laws have the effect of making every job cost prohibitive . It now takes many years to do what should take a few months due to red tape inspired by environmental wackos. Just think what the Interstate highway system would cost today . The EPA should have it’s budget cut by at least 90%. Or better yet–put a chain and lock on the door.
