Dear Fellow Patriot, We need you to take action today to stop the EPA and President Obama from destroying our great nation. Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. are waging a war on affordable energy, and President Obama himself declared he would bankrupt the coal industry. The President has followed through on his promise; this is unacceptable. We must stand together and stop the flood of regulations that are sending gas prices through the roof and driving up your monthly electric bills. – American Energy Alliance.

From their about page: “The AEA is a not-for-profit organization that engages in grassroots public policy advocacy and debate concerning energy and environmental policies.” Actually, no. The AEA is funded by the oil-soaked robber barons, the Koch brothers. And the CEO of AEA’a parent group is a former Enron executive. Bolding is motherfucking mine.
