From FREEREPUBLIC...a point to ponder... [url]http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/668184/posts[/url] In speaking with a friend knowledgeable about the manner in which some Environmental groups obtain their funding, he told me he was ASTOUNDED that either Democrat or Republican Senators who support ANWR- and by the way there IS a majority of the SENATE that DOES INDEED support the well in ANWR, that they have not made public in the debate that the Saudis have for many years been FUNDING Environmenhtal groups in the U.S. to ensure that the U.S. does NOT become less dependent on foreign oil and that Americans are required to send our money to the Arab states. [b]Most enviro whack groups are now funded by "foundations"- because people just don't donate anymore to these whackcase groups[/b]- and then the groups- like the Sierra Club then fund many of the NorthEastern Democrat Senators through the Sierra PAC in Senator's states awhich re not affected by environmental policy or land use policy at all, but who can be bought off by Saudi Oil money. If the Sierra CLub et al doesn't oppose American energy self-reliance or natural gas independence efforts and technology to accomplish that, the Arab States threaten the Sierra CLub with pulling their money support of the Sierra Club. Ain't complicated. So where's the outrage? Where's the Congressional hearings? Where's the campaign Finance lambasting against these anti-American North Eastern Democrat Senators who are being bought off by the Saudis? It was hysterical to hear Sen. Schmuck of NY the other day say Bush should open up the strategic oil reserve to stabilize prices. Sen. Schmuck should get his head checked and start refusing Saudi oil money by "opening up" American oil self-reliance in ANWR to create LONG TERM price stability. The HEADLINE SPIN FOR ANWR SUPPORTERS TODAY should be: Those Democrat Senators in the Northeast taking campaign money funnelled by the Saudis through environmental groups should be careful in opposing ANWR this election year. That'll get the news cycle going nuts on ANWR... would be great. The Sierra CLub won't list it's donors... wonder why? And they mix and mash their "education" money in with their PAC money as bad as Jesse Jackson does with his own bank account of shakedown money. Until the Dems who are receiving money from enviro groups funded by the Saudis return that money, they should abstain from voting on ANWR. What the hell... if it was all a lie I'd still run the spin- Dems do it to the Repugnants all the time, especially lying Dasshole.

............ See, this is how it works. the Sierra Club has the lawful ability to accept donations and NOT, by law (as do many other organizations) be required to provide the names of where the funding is coming from. during the early 90's- actually it started in the late 80's, the Sierra Club has run its marketing bell curve out. so many environmental problems were solved that they lost their donor base. So they went hunting for foundation money. thing was, after the North Sea oil finds, the Saudis were sweating it out because of the North Sea Brent competition. Oil was tanking from supply, peaking in the mid to late 90's. So, the Saudis didn't want any more competition. In fact in '95, they went berserk when ANWR was proposed to be welled up and up and running by about '99 or 2000. Anyway- make a long story short- some in the Arab world got the bright idea to influence Congress via these enviro-whack groups and they did. The environental whack cases get money from oil Arabs to STOP the US from providing Americans with lower energy prices AND less dependence on their product. It's that simple. It's a business decision and those in Congress- generally in the Northeast, who accept endorsements or advertising "issue ads" from the likes of the Sierra Club or the socialists in the NRDC (a real bunch of totalitarians), should be asked to refrain from voting on ANWR. This is worse than Enron- much worse. ...................... Oil companies have been subsidizing the enviro-wackos for a couple of decades. Why? Two reasons, first, the more regulations their are on petroleum, the harder it is for smaller oil companies to surviver, chango presto, a reduction in competition for the big boys. Second, the problem as seen by oil companies is that there is a surplus of oil and has been for decades. The enviro-wackos stop drilling and prevent oil from coming onto the market. This reduces supply and drives up the price. The Saudis have probably been in this game for a while too.

I used to work for a company that sold vehicles to members of different member based affinity groups (similar to AAA, amway, etc). One of the customers I worked with worked for the Sierra club, and the type of vehicle he bought.... [b]Chevy SUBURBAN[/B] They are a bunch of whores who will say anything for a paycheck as long as it keeps their funding coming in. They don't care about the enviroment or anything else. They're just hypocrites without any values. [8p][50]
