The Real Tom Steyer

Hacked Emails Show Extent Of Left-Wing Billionaire’s Influence On White House

Hacked emails show the extent to which billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer coordinated with the Obama administration to form energy policy and to divide Republicans on environmental issues.

Democratic strategist Chris Lehane, a Steyer aide, emailed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton advisor John Podesta in 2014 ironing out a strategy for a White House climate policy plan that would simultaneously hurt the GOP during the elections and make gains attacking man-made global warming.

Steyer was also touting the plan, according to Lehane.

“TS may have sent you this doc last night — but believe he may have sent a slightly earlier draft so please use this one,” reads an email illegally obtained by WikiLeaks. “We hope this is helpful and stand ready to support whatever you may need.”

With apologies to Rush, we need a remake of “Tom Sawyer” that goes like this, as it needs very little change from the original to work:

A modern eco-warrior
Mean, mean stride
Today’s Tom Steyer
Mean, mean guy

Though his mine is not for rent
Do put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day’s events
The river

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the gist, catch co2 myth
Catch the smear it, catch the drift

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his skies are warm

Today’s Tom Steyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No his mind is not for rent
Just to Gore and government
Never hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes are permanent
But change is

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witless, catch the nit
Catch the smear it, catch the spit

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide

Exit eco-warrior
Today’s Tom Steyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the fiction of the day
