…And, well, there’s a lot, really.
Well, well, well. It turns out that UN Ambassador and prospective Secretary of State nominee Susan Rice (she’s a multimillionaire, by the way) has some rather interesting financial ties to numerous foreign energy companies that still do business with that oppressive, misogynistic, homophobic, and downright barking mad insane regime currently controlling Iran. The most interesting one of those is Royal Dutch Shell, which has about a billion dollars’ worth of interest (literally) in getting Iran’s sanctions lifted; Rice has also invested in at least two other companies that are operating in Iran against the wishes of pretty much most of the West.
Hmm. Let’s scroll through some of her other investments:
- Transcanada ($300-600K). Keystone Pipeline company. Wonder whether the Greenies are comfortable about that? Spoiler warning: no.
- Monsanto (10-50K). Agricultural conglomerate that works with genetically engineered food. Wonder if the Greenies are comfortable about that?
- Walmart ($50-100K). …If you haven’t figured out by now that Big Labor is gunning for Walmart, then… Big Labor is gunning for Walmart.
- Ishares Silver Trust ($100-250K), Newmont Mining Corp ($100-250K). Metal mining companies. Hey, guess who has even more of a vested interest than usual in making sure that the government keeps the current capital gains and dividends tax rates? Metal mining companies!
