McCain Toady in Bed with Obama and GE to Push Renewable Energy Bill
By Jerry A. Kane
Sellout Senator Lindsay (Gramshi) Graham (R-SC) is working with GE lobbyists to draft “the Clean Energy Act of 2009,” which will mandate that 20 percent of electricity come from “clean energy sources” by 2020 and 50 percent by 2050.
GE CEO, Jeff Immelt, bet the farm in developing “green” energy-generating products and Graham has been out front among Republicans regurgitating the myth that fossil fuels destroy the planet to undercut free markets and increase energy prices on the American people.
“Immelt does not want to compete in the open marketplace. Rather, he wants to game the political system by working with Congress to mandate demand for GE’s products, either by increasing the price of fossil fuels through a cap-and-trade system or via a Graham-type bill that requires power generation from renewable energy sources,” writes Tom Borelli in “Lindsay Graham Seeks to Bail Out General Electric and Rescue Obama’s Energy Policy.”
From the rubble of the anthropomorphic global warming scam, America does not need to dig out renewable energy laws. But GE needs mandates to push its wind and solar power products, and South Carolina’s gelding appears to have been for sale. His clean energy definition mirrors GE’s business strategy for renewable energy, clean coal technology, and nuclear energy
“Several sources said General Electric Co. helped Graham in crafting the legislative language. GE has the world’s largest gas turbine manufacturing plant, in Greenville, S.C., and the company also is leading development of new nuclear reactors and a “clean coal” technology known as integrated gasification combined cycle, which has the capacity to capture and permanently sequester carbon emissions,” the New York Times reported.
John McCain has mentored his toady well, i.e., wait until victory is at hand; then board your ass, cross the aisle, insert your dagger deep in the back of your party leader, and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory to the chant of “Maverick! Maverick!” from the adoring gaggle of gathered propagandists commissioned to praise your heroic deeds.
Graham has been a patsy for the political left since his days on the Hyde Committee, which processed the impeachment of Bill Clinton. He double-crossed Henry Hyde and was the only Republican to join with Committee Democrats and vote against the perjury charge, the keystone article of the three articles of impeachment.
Gramshi is a big-government, self-promoting RINO who is out of step with the beliefs of most Republican voters, but he won’t be up for reelection until 2014, which means the party must endure another five years of his treachery. But it’s not too late to do something about the treacherous actions of his mentor.
Megan’s faux conservative daddy is facing a bona fide conservative challenger in J.D. Hayworth for the senate seat in Arizona. If Arizona Republicans are serous about saving their party and ridding the country of the tyrannical policies of the progressive Democrats, they will send Graham’s maverick mentor home to spend time with his insufferable daughter.
