The Dividing Line Between Hope and Darkness for the Southern Tier

New York’s Southern Tier is dying, slowly and painfully, abandoned by its state leaders as it is forced to witness what could be from across a dividing line.

It apparently takes Pennsylvanians to speak up for New York State’s Southern Tier. The Empire State’s leaders are more interested in appeasing a politically correct gentry class domiciled in the ivory towers of Manhattan. Well, that’s not entirely fair. There are numerous New Yorkers willing to speak up and they have done so very articulately and with a passion born of truth. The Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association (PMA) had to provide the forum and they’ve done so with a remarkable good video that is a must-see.

The Virginia Organizing Hustle: Another Fractivist Tool at Work

Virginia Organizing is another phony political outfit masquerading as a charity with no regard for the law while making itself a fractivist tool for others.

Kevin Mooney, over at The Daily Signal, has a new piece up about an outfit I’ve known about for a while called Virginia Organizing. It first came to my attention a few years ago when I was exploring who was donating money to the NRDC. Virginia Organizing came up repeatedly not as a donor, but as a recipient, of fractivist money from the same people funding NRDC. They included the Schmidt Family/Google Foundations, the Park Foundation, Tides Foundation, the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Marsla Foundation and the Wallace Genetic Foundation, all of which have been previously exposed on these pages as major fractivist enablers.

Kevin, though, has uncovered an additional link of significance; the dark money Sea Change Foundation which appears to have funneled Russian money into fractivist coffers via the helpful hands of the solar invested Simons family. His article is well worth reading as it details the insights of a CIA veteran as to how Russian interests manipulate groups such as Virginia Organizing into doing their bidding through a merging of ideological and mercenary objectives on the giving and receiving ends. What’s also interesting to me, though, is how Virginia Organizing has done its dirty work and how it’s gotten away with ignoring the law.

The Radical Rockefeller Campaign Against Pipelines

… 

The increasingly radical Rockefeller family is funding an anti-pipeline campaign on many fronts, including in West Virginia where their puppets are suing.

A group of profoundly radical “environmental” organizations filed a lawsuit in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit last Friday against the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) – for doing their job. The Sierra Club, West Virginia Rivers Coalition, Indian Creek Watershed Association, Appalachian Voices and Chesapeake Climate Action Network have sued the DEP because the department had the audacity to conduct a very thorough review, and then issue a stream and water-crossing permit (demanded under federal law) for the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP).

Upstate New Yorkers Now Told to Beg From One Another

….  

Vic Furman exposes the reality of life in Upstate New York after Governor Andrew Cuomo’s fracking decision condemning the region to perpetual decline.

The latest New York budget gimmick is a state initiated program encouraging towns and counties to come up with ideas for saving taxpayer money by sharing more services. Sounds good but is it? It’s nor readily apparent exactly how this fits into Andrew Cuomo’s plans to reduce taxes but, as I see it, these theoretical savings from sharing services are little more than groveling for scraps, the Governor having already sold us out at the behest of the Empire State’s aristocrats when he denied us the economic benefits of gas drilling. We’re left to being told to beg from each other.

Walter Hang Celebrates and Profits as Upstate Dies

….
….  

Walter Hang appeared on the Bob Joseph Show this past Friday to celebrate Andrew Cuomo’s attempts to starve Upstate New York of both gas and gas drilling.

This past Friday, I had the distinct privilege of listening to Walter Hang on WNBF 1290. He was on the “Bob Joseph Show.” “Biased Bob,” who adopted this moniker after a caller referred to him as such, has proven over and over again his show is a megaphone for those opposed to natural gas drilling and anxious to lie about it. His interview with Ithaca’s Walter Hang, the fractivist shill the Rockefellers have now paid well over $2 million to do his schtick, was yet another example.

Alex Plays Student Again As Heinz Funds Anti-Pipeline Stunt

… 

The gentry class Heinz Endowments funds many stupid stunts but none more so than this anti-pipeline joke orchestrated by professional protester Alex Lotorto.

Alex Lotorto is a professional protester who has been playing student at multiple colleges for well over a decade now. He’s developed a low-level career for himself chasing causes to get his face in the news. Fractivist and anti-pipeline causes have been a particularly rich environment for him to do so. His latest stunt is one of the most pathetic I’ve witnessed but it was spectacularly successful in one regard, at least, in that he got the attention of one of my favorite blogs, Instapundit, which linked to a PowerShift story of the event such it was and called out Lotorto’s group as “Putin’s Stooges.”

The Special Interest Funded DAPL Protest Phonies

… 

Heard about those veterans supporting DAPL protesters? Well, as it turns out the group consists of a bunch of special interest funded DAPL protest phonies.

The clues are always there; the fake outrage, the supposedly rock-solid Americans who suddenly adopt the fractivist cause and the panting news reports. Such is the case with the group called “Veterans Stand with Standing Rock.” It’s a virtual template for fractivism. The group is little, if anything, more than an association of DAPL protest phonies funded by special interests.

The Constitution Pipeline Endorsed by Otsego County

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard Downey

Otsego County recognizes the need for cheap energy (natural gas) in their county and has endorsed the building of the Constitution Pipeline.

Kudos to the Otsego County Legislature for passing a resolution endorsing the Constitution Pipeline at their November meeting. It was fitting that it followed a presentation by the CEO of the County’s industrial development agency. His 15 point program for projected growth depends on cheap energy. Cheap energy=gas. In our region, gas = the Constitution Pipeline.

The Coastal Elites Funding Opposition to the Shell Cracker

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania fought hard to secure the Shell Cracker for Western Pennsylvania but coastal elites are fighting to stop it.

Two different Pennsylvania Governors of different parties fought to get Royal Dutch Shell to locate a cracker in Beaver County. It’s a massive economic opportunity for all of Pennsylvania; a multi-billion investment that will create jobs, stimulate other manufacturing and . That hasn’t stopped New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and San Francisco snobs from trying to undermine it, though. These coastal elites, who form the financial backbone of fractivism in this country, are funding opposition to the Shell cracker. What’s happening is the reason Donald Trump, for better or worse, was elected President by Pennsylvanians among others; to strike back at this same plutocracy.

The Rockefeller Agenda: It’s About the Land

A New York Times story shows the Rockefeller agenda is finally experiencing some pushback but there’s a whole lot more to be told and it’s about the land.

Monday’s New York Times included a mention of this website and even a link to one of our stories — “It’s time to RICO the Rockefellers.” It was an excellent article and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I appreciated the mention. I must say, though, there is a lot more to be told and I sincerely hope John Schwartz will pick up on it. It’s also noteworthy that such a story appeared. The Rockefeller family can get whatever it wants printed in the New York Times whenever it wants. This piece tells me the Rockefeller agenda has now received enough pushback to force them to defend themselves. Well, good, but I’m not buying the altruism defense.
