Who Is Reactionary Billionaire Harold Simmons-- And Why Is He Financing Millions of Dollars in TV Ads To Smear Barack Obama?

>

Evil incarnate

There isn't a more sleazy and disreputable political operator in America than 77 year old Harold Clark Simmons. Credited as one of the fathers of predatory capitalism, the far right Texas billionaire developed the concept of the leveraged buyout. One of McCain's primary financial backers, Simmons, worth over $7 billion, has a long and sordid history in extremist political sleaze. He's probably best known for having donated $4 million dollars to finance the Swift Boat campaign of lies against John Kerry in 2004, allowing the most ruinous administration in American history to capture the presidency. He is determined to spend whatever it takes to smear Obama with any lie anyone wants to make up about him. Even Fox has refused to show his ads (sort of).

Today's NY Times ran a piece on Simmons' attempt to subvert democracy with his billions. Simmons is spending millions of dollars on trying to tie Barack Obama to a radical who bombed the Capitol when Obama was 8 years old. It is just a small beginning for what Simmons intends to do to make sure McCain-- and his policies-- wind up in control of America.

Simmons is one of the very worst examples of a social criminal in America and his companies make money by poisoning the earth. Without corrupt political hacks like John McCain and George Bush, creatures like Harold Simmons, one of the 50 richest men in America, could not exist. Besides financing more smear campaigns than anyone else in American history, Simmons has donated hundreds of thouands of dollars to extremist Republicans (as well as to a small handful of recationary Democrats, particularly Nancy Pelosi's candidate for the vice presidency, Chet Edwards). When Jesus talked about camels getting through the eyes of a needle he had Harold Simmons in mind. In South Africa Satan gave them Mark Scott-Crossley; in Texas, the Angel of Darkness cursed us with Harold Clark Simmons.

Billionaire Feels Sting of Line Item Veto
By ALLEN R. MYERSON
Pres Clinton's use of line item veto dashes plan by Texas billionaire, Harold C Simmons, to preserve capital gains tax break while renegotiating sale of beet-sugar refining company, formed as joint venture with Snake River Sugar Co; Simmons has given more than $1 million to Republican campaigns and causes since early 1980's.
August 12, 1997


This scumbag is the worst kind of Repig crony capitalist. A decade ago he bribed the sleazebag Gingrich-Repig congress to pass a bill granting him a special tax break worth $60 million; but Clinton quashed it with a line-item veto.

I hope he sinks Obama's boat, He will bring out the fact that Obama was born in Africa not the U.S. and that the Hawaii birth certificate is a forgery. The case is currently in federal court. More coming....Hillary may still prevail..

So, what's the big deal about Obama being born somewhere else? He's still a US citizen. McCain wasn't born in the US either, he was born in Panama.

the joy of fear mongering and hate media to control the people. Just think if we all ignored this sort of trash and voted as logical thinking Americans. The world must laugh when they see someone like Simmons. When will the people who bear the burden have a voice in this country not just those who can buy the presidency and manipulate. This guy is probably has a phone by his bed with a direct line to George B.

For Mr. Simmons: A strong suggestion: examine your morals (if any), your patriotism (if existent), your courage (if you have any), your scruples (if you understand the word) and then go directly to your pastor, priest, or whomever and BEG that he/she pray with you for your forgiveness for being a divisive, dishonest, cheating, phobic and self indulgent prick. There MAY be time for you to redeem youself, though it certainly will not be as lucrative as being an asshole, but who knows, perhaps feeing clean for the first time in your pathetic existence will be liberating!

Would all you cry baby libs please explain what is the difference between Simmons fighting for the right and Soros fighting for the left. Soros has publicly said he wants to see the fall of the USA and wants China to be the lone world super power.

This is how Hitler got his start, by leading the people by their own ignorant noses and sidelining the truth. Hitler wasn't as rich as this cute little man though, imagine what might have happened if he were, we'd all be singing the Horst Wessel song.

Anyone know how to boycott Simmons' financial interests? What are his interests, and how can those of us those oppose these smears turn it back on him?
