In the below video, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. a known private jet flyer and part owner of three oil companies and an environmental extremist, got into a video argument with PJ Media.
First the word “extremist” is much over used today.
After you read Kennedy’s following comments, you will agree we are using it fairly: Environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. lamented that there were no current laws on the books to punish global warming skeptics. “I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under,” Kennedy told Climate Depot in a one-on-one interview during the People’s Climate March. The interview was conducted for the upcoming documentary Climate Hustle.
Kennedy Jr. accused skeptical politicians of “selling out the public trust.” “Those guys are doing the Koch Brothers’ bidding and are against all the evidence of the rational mind, saying global warming does not exit. They are contemptible human beings. I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under.”
Kennedy saved his most venomous comments for his fellow oil company beneficiaries, the Koch Brothers, accusing them of “treason” for “polluting our atmosphere.”
“I think it’s treason. Do I think the Koch Brothers are treasonous, yes I do,” Kennedy explained.
“They are enjoying making themselves billionaires by impoverishing the rest of us. Do I think they should be in jail, I think they should be enjoying three hots and a cot at the Hague with all the other war criminals,” Kennedy declared. http://www.climatedepot.com/2014/09/21/robert-f-kennedy-jr-wants-to-jail-his-political-opponents-accuses-koch-brothers-of-treason-they-ought-to-be-serving-time-for-it/
Only a tiny minority of Americans ever generate the carbon footprint that Kennedy does when he flies private jets to anti-carbon footprint conferences around the world. Normal airline passengers have a tiny carbon footprint in comparison.
What is even more interesting? Kennedy’s oil company connections.
We found this article about that: The Kennedy Family owns outright three oil companies for which Robert Jr. receives Royalty Checks:
Their names are Mokeen Oil and Kenoil. They also own a third not included in the below quote, Arctic Oil, as well as oil deposits in Louisiana and mineral rights to properties in Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi.
The Arctic Royalty Limited Partnership (ARLP) is housed in JPK Enterprises at 330 Madison Ave. in New York.
According to an article by ,
“That’s right. The Kennedy family owns two oil companies.
Not “oil stock,” like Al Gore with his Occidental Petroleum carbon footprint, “oil companies.”
The doors at 330 Madison Ave. in New York City inconspicuously display the name “JPK Enterprises.” This is the home office for the Arctic Royalty Limited Partnership, the Trust which was formed in 1985 to avoid the corporate income taxes that Kenoil and Mokeen had to pay.
The Kennedy clan has made millions for their Trust, located on Fiji, from oil profits. Also, thanks to legislation passed by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, the Arctic Royalty Limited Partnership is unaffected by the elimination of the 22 percent Depletion Allowance that Big Oil used to be able to claim on their taxes. The Arctic Royalty Limited Partnership is also safe should the Windfall Profits Tax be reinstated, as some in Congress are now calling for.
An added bonus for environmentalists like Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., is that they need not fear anything by reading too much into the name Arctic Royalty Limited Partnership as the Kennedys in congress have no intention of allowing the competition to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. But Robert F Kennedy Jr. enjoys a piece of the action from the family gas and oil interests none the less.
Of course, as a private citizen, his finances are off the record.” I think if RFK Jr. disclosed how much he has made from his family’s Oil companies, he would lose all credibility as an environmentalist forever.
I would like an environmental activist like himself to volunteer how profitable Mokeen Oil, Kenoil, and Arctic Oil are for he and his family as it appears that he is benefiting from the fruits of an industry he opposes in public. http://thefracdog.wordpress.com/2011/11/22/robert-f-kennedy-jr-green-shill/
In fact RFK Jr. made the
“NAME THE LIBERAL HYPOCRITE” QUIZ of Peter Schweizer:
9. Who says that oil companies cause pollution and global warming but quietly owns an oil company that drills
for crude in five states?
a. Tom Daschle
b. Dan Rather
c. The Kennedys
Answer: C. The Kennedys. The Kennedys own Arctic Royalty Trust, which leases out land for oil
drilling in five states. Much of the land was accumulated by convincing poor rural black farmers to give away their “mineral rights,” not knowing what it meant. The Kennedys set the operation up as a Royalty Trust to avoid paying income and corporate taxes on the profits. Family members including Ted Kennedy, environmentalist Robert Kennedy, Jr., and Joe Kennedy, Jr. receive checks every year. http://www.randomhouse.com/doubleday/doasisay/quiz.pdf
The following video by PJ Media takes on added meaning after we are aware of these financial interests of Robert Kennedy Jr. PJ Media was going easy on him in regard to cell phones, which have minimal environmental impact. It is his hatred of his fellow oil company owners that is more troubling. Does he hate them so much, because he is one of them?
