George Soros Is Funding Attack on Trump’s Withdrawal from Paris Climate Accord

American Bridge 21st Century is a new super PAC that will attack the Trump administration’s repeal of the Paris climate accord.  George Soros gave American Bridge $2-million during the 2016 election cycle, and it received additional funding from labor unions and a political group founded by billionaire, Tom Steyer.

A liberal super PAC will begin funneling money to attack the Trump administration’s repealing of Obama-era environmental rules and decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord.

American Bridge 21st Century launched the new “climate accountability project” Monday, according to Axios, specifically highlighting the “economic and public health downsides” of President Donald Trump’s rejection of costly global warming rules.

“Climate change presents an economic problem as well as an environmental one, and we’re going to expose the dangers of Trump’s agenda,” American Bridge president Jessica Mackler told Axios.

What Axios doesn’t note, however, is American Bridge is heavily funded by liberal billionaire George Soros, labor unions and even a political group founded by billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer.

Soros is listed as American Bridge’s top donor in the last three election cycles, according to campaign finance data collected by the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP). Soros gave the group $2 million in the 2016 election cycle.

Soros, a Hungarian-born investor, was also one of the top donors to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, according to CRP data.

American Bridge’s new focus on global warming and environmental issues may bring the issues to the forefront of the 2018 mid-term elections. So far, Democrats haven’t made global warming a main campaign issue, instead focusing on jobs, health care and race and gender issues.

The group is consciously trying to tie Trump’s eschewing of Obama administration climate regulations as “threatening our economic future,” according to their website.

On the flip side, American Bridge may be focusing on Trump’s environmental agenda because it’s one of the most successful areas of his administration.

In June, Trump announced he would withdraw from the Paris climate accord, fulfilling a promise he made on the campaign trail. His administration also began rolling back the Clean Power Plan and the “waters of the United States” rules that had drawn legal challenges from dozens of states.

Gavin Newsom Plans To Buy All California Real Estate Foreclosures

January 14, 2021 Matt Aitchison 2

Matt Aitchison says a new law in California, SB 1079, will result in the State entering the real-estate-foreclosed home business, which essentially removes competition from investors, and could ultimately socialize real estate as a whole. He warns that this policy may spread to other Democrat-run sates.

Real not so bright? Why throw that money into talking heads instead of investing it into the clean technologies that already exist lawfully in nations to recover heal and revolutionize energy infrastructures. Less talk and more doing where clean energy is already happening. Feed the market to advocate and support its expansions. Exit feeding the problems(stagnations) and become a problem solver
