Democrats have no problem accepting millions from billionaire ex-hedge-fund manager Tom Steyer, who just last month pledged $50 million to support candidates opposed to the Keystone XL Pipeline, but has made millions off the very industries he claims are destroying the environment. (Steyer also pledged $50 million in February in support of global warming initiatives.)
Incidentally, Steyer has investments in both a competing pipeline venture and “green energy” companies as well.
Make sure to point this out where you can. We hear endlessly about how it is so horrible that people like the Koch Brothers have so much influence, but the media and the politicians seem to forget the Democrats have their own cash cow. And he’s not the only one. So the next time someone tells you how evil the Koch Brothers are, remind them of Mr. Steyer…

“I think it’s tragic that the Republican Party would destroy itself in 2016 by not having one issue that the American people believe should be a priority,” Rangel told Fox News’s Neil Cavuto.
“I don’t think people, Americans, Democratic or Republicans, are going to lose sleep over Benghazi. And I really think that they’re concerned about the economy and jobs and immigration. What I’m talking about is, is that if the Democrats are the only ones standing on their feet in 2016, America has lost.”

May 9, 2014 — The Satanic Temple plans to perform a Satanic Black Mass at Harvard University on Monday, May 12, at 8:30PM.
We cannot remain silent! This is a most grave sin. And a direct insult and act of defiance against God. Every Catholic — really, every man of good will — must SPEAK OUT before it happens!
In fact, the Archdiocese of Boston has called all Catholics to express their “strong opposition” to the plan to stage a “black mass” and urged the faithful to ask that Harvard disassociate itself from the event.
So, TFP Student Action urges you to sign this petition against the Satanic Black Mass at the Queen’s Head Pub at Harvard University. Blasphemy is not freedom of speech.
I nearly died in a war that you and most of your colleagues supported overwhelmingly, including the two presidents who came before you. Many citizens may not agree with waging war in Iraq to free the oppressed Iraqi citizens, but it’s something that warriors like myself have zero control over. I joined to serve my country and to better my life. I’ve seen things that you could never imagine, and they have made me the person I am today.
Mr. Obama, even though we share extreme opposite views, we have one thing in common, we both attended school in Hawaii. However, that’s where the similarities end. You see, as you attended your exclusive, private school, I would ride my bike to Kaimuki High school in one of the roughest areas in Hawaii every morning and would ride past Punahou, the exclusive private school you attended.

Tracing the history of Christian matchmaking, Paul Putz ponders the popularity of dating sites like Christian Mingle that help evangelicals find each other:
Evangelical marriages provide a conducive setting for children to accept and remain followers of their parents’ faith. It’s a pressing concern: The religious retention rate for evangelicals has been dropping since the 1990s, according to David Campbell and Robert Putnam in American Grace: How Religion Unites and Divides Us. They also suggest“the most important factor predicting religious retention” is whether or not a person’s family was religiously homogenous and observant. Meanwhile, the rate of interfaith marriage has more than doubled since the 1950s, accounting today for 45 percent of all marriages. That trend, according to [journalist Naomi Schaeffer] Riley, has had the unintended consequence of eroding the strength of some faith traditions, partly because “interfaith families are less likely to raise their children religiously.”
