Solidarity share: Next Friday, June 27 at 7:15 - "Citizen Koch" "In this searing exposé on the state of democracy in America and the fracturing of the Republican Party, Academy Award®-nominated directors Carl Deal and Tia Lessin (Trouble the Water; co-producers of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine) examine the impact of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling, which unleashed a torrent of unlimited, anonymous political spending by corporations and billionaires that fundamentally changed the way our democracy works. But in America‘s heartland, the filmmakers uncover an unintended side effect of the billionaires’ free-for-all: lifelong Republicans whose party loyalty is tested when their families become collateral damage in the GOP fight to take organized labor out at the knees. Alternately terrifying and funny, Citizen Koch is an essential and powerful portrait of our political times. And while the money and influence of David Koch kept Citizen Koch from airing on public television, it c ...
OMG, I love Lawrence O'Donnell. First night back from his auto accident (in April) and his first segment was all praise for the nurses who took care of him during his recovery. He also called out David Koch, arch political opposite, for the huge contribution he made to the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York where he recovered from his surgery for his broken hip. An amazing first class act!!
Does it bother anyone else that, in an age where the House GOP cuts $40 B from the SNAP, taking food out of the mouths of dependent children, the disabled and seniors, newly-annointed Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy spent in fiscal 2012 almost $100 K on coffee, donuts and bottled water for meetings he held with staffers and lobbyists? Oh, did I mention that the $100 K was on the expense account? Apparently, it is Grandma's patriotic duty to eat one can of Safeway cat food as her daily ration, because she's no longer a "maker" and we live in an age of austerity. But when it comes to the perfumed princes of Congress, bottled water and croissants are simply gracious hospitality for the donor class. After all, we can't serve David Koch take-out from Sonic! How gauche! I doubt McCarthy learned this etiquette in Bakersfield.

The billionaire brothers Koch are on the receiving end (finally) of some serious media attention and political outrage as the result of a recent spate of anti-American activities. In addition, a group of reporters recently infiltrated one of their super-secret top “one-percenters” summits and the results were, let’s say, illuminating. The dynastic duo has formed a Super PAC (aren’t they one already?) aimed at securing the coming midterm elections for their pet Republican candidates. Their latest scheme involves targeting Hispanics and Latinos to urge them to vote for the same cadre of pasty white men that will, in turn, propose immigration legislation to have them deported, pay them unfair wages, prevent their family members from immigrating, and deny them government benefits. Sadly, they have the deep pockets required to blur the lines and place these candidates in office, as The Daily Beast explains: The Koch Brothers are on a mission to make people other than older white men vote for Republican ...

It sounds more like a cult. But instead of being a religious movement or secret sect, this is a cult of money, influence, and self-serving politics. This is the Cult of Koch.” “How could we possibly understand the Kochs’ vision when they and their loyal followers hide from America? The truth is that the Koch Brothers are concealing their massive fundraising efforts because Americans overwhelmingly oppose the purchase of our democracy.” “…A constitutional amendment is what this nation needs to bring sanity back to political campaigns and restore Americans’ confidence in their elected leaders.

Not a day goes by when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid isn't talking about Charles and David Koch, the billionaire brothers who backed a network of nonprofit political groups that raised $400 million through anonymous donors in 2012.
David Koch was the Libertarian Party's VP candidate in 1979 - 80. The then Libertarian presidential candidate, Ed Clark, tells a reporter that the Libertarians are preparing to stage “A VERY BIG Tea Party" because people are “sick to death” of taxes. William F. Buckley Jr. called the movement “Anarcho-Totalitarianism.”. Here are just a few excerpts of the Libertarian Party platform that David Koch ran on in 1980: “We urge the repeal of federal campaign finance laws, and the immediate abolition of the despotic Federal Election Commission.” “We favor the abolition of Medicare and Medicaid programs.” “We oppose any compulsory insurance or tax-supported plan to provide health services, including those which finance abortion services.” “We also favor the deregulation of the medical insurance industry.” “We favor the repeal of the fraudulent, virtually bankrupt, and increasingly oppressive Social Security system. Pending that repeal, participation in Social Security should be made v ...
. "The Koch Brothers are the Democrats’ public enemy No. 1. But there was a time not too long ago that billionaires Charles and David Koch were modest Democratic Party donors. Though the Kochs have poured untold millions into conservative and libertarian causes over the years, the political action committee for their privately held Koch Industries also has given money through the years to Democratic causes and candidates — including Mark Pryor, Mary Landrieu and Chuck Schumer — as part of the influence-peddling game that many corporations and wealthy donors play. Those donations from Koch Industries Inc. Political Action Committee, or KochPAC, include nearly $200,000 to Democratic candidates and committees as recently as 2010 — including a $30,000 donation to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and other top Democrats have made vilifying the Kochs part of a deliberate political strategy to rile up the party’s base and drive the party’s small-dollar f ...
So apparently corporations are inherently evil and the cause of all humanity's problems. In fact, ill bet the Koch Bros. are personally responsible for our debt, our inflation, our stagnant economy, our diminishing freedom's, our militarized police state, our exorbitant tax rate, our failing public education system, our growing poverty, and the failure of the AFA. Or maybe foisting blame onto corporate wealth and influence is just another diversionary tactic the State uses to further justify its expansion and theft. When is the last time David Koch put a gun to your head and made you buy his products? My guess would be never. What about Sam Walton? Surely the evil Wal-Mart magnate has forcefully stolen from his employees. No, he hasn't? Hm. You know who does perpetrate violent theft, everyday? Our benovolent federal government. Our enlightened despots. Every two weeks they steal almost 20 percent of our earnings. If you don't pay; you go to jail. Maybe govt is the real problem. Maybe absolute power has ab ...

Tom Steyer, a billionaire Democrat-aligned investor who is deploying his fortune to highlight the threat of climate change, is airing TV advertisements attacking not the Republicans but fellow billionaires Charles and David Koch. Mr Steyer’s advertisements targeting the two industrialists are largely a stunt aimed at lifting the brothers’ public profile and demonising their role in backing conservative causes. But underlying the Democrats’ anti-Koch campaign is a genuine trend – of a huge growth in spending on politics by wealthy Americans outside of the once standard campaign channels.

I must amend my last statement about the Government of the United States.

Other elements in our Government have sought to defy the will of the majority of Americans. DEREGULATION of the corporate entities, and REGULATION of women's bodies, people's sexual preference, people's voting rights, people's access to news, and people's right to privacy.

I find it hilarious that democrats go out of their way to demonize the Koch Brothers, when they supported drug legalization, *** marriage, and all personal freedoms before any democrats did (especially David Koch in his run for president under the Libertarian Party). The Koch Brothers don't just talk the talk and walk the walk when it is popular, they do it on principle. Ask Harry Reid and the Democrats what their stance was on any of these issues 15 years ago, you would have heard a different tune being sung.

from Gary Schrecengost: I know this is long but if you focus on the 1980 Libertarian Platform that VP candidate David Koch ran on, you will understand some of the scary issues that are becoming reality due to Koch funded GOP and Tea Party bills and initiatives, as well as their propaganda machines like the American Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute and the Bill creationist group ALEC.

David Koch and the dinosaurs: Renovations begin on new hall
Seven of the 10 richest counties in the country voted for Barack Obama in 2012. Democrats represent eight of the ten richest congressional districts in the country. Congressional Democrats have a higher median net worth than congressional Republicans. The top 20 entries in the Forbes list of the 400 wealthiest Americans include conservative bogeymen such as Charles and David Koch (tied at number 4) and Sheldon Adelson (number 11). But these men are overwhelmed by Democratic fundraisers such as Warren Buffett (number 2), Michael Bloomberg (number 10), Jeff Bezos (number 12), Larry Page (number 13), Sergey Brin (number 14), and George Soros (number 19), as well as by billionaires who have donated more evenly between parties, such as Bill Gates (number 1) and Larry Ellison (number 3). Eight of the 10 largest private foundations are liberal.
In the 2012 election cycle, Koch Groups spent $407 million dollars. Those groups are ultimately directed by the two most politically active Koch Brothers, Charles and David Koch. But there's a third Koch Brother, William Koch, the youngest, who is less active though still a major player. And in 2012 he donated $2.75 million to the Romney campaign. By contrast, George Soros spent $2.6 million total, to ALL the candidates, super pacs, committees, etc. he donated to in 2012. So even the "baby brother" of the Koch Brother outspent him in his support to just one candidate, and taken as a whole the Koch Brothers and their groups outspent George Soros 157 times over. here's some food for thought on the Koch Brothers vs George Soros, in terms of whether their agendas are a good thing, or a bad thing.

"We'd like to abolish the Federal Elections Commission and all the limits on campaign spending anyway," -David Koch told New York magazine in 1980. Well, that was back when he was running as vp on the libertarian ticket back in the early 80's (They got a whopping 1% of the national vote). Guess he realized he could just skip getting elected and buy politicians instead. And how has that been going for him? In March of 2010 he was worth $17.5 billion Today, just 4 years later, he's worth $40.9 billion. The Citizen's United ruling let him and his brother donate unlimited funds through super PACs in recent elections and the most recent Supreme Court decision had done away with limits on individual contributions. He's pretty close to getting rid of the FEC, or at least taking away enough of its power to make it all but useless. He also wanted to do away with Social Security, welfare, minimum-wage laws, corporate taxes, all price supports and subsidies for agriculture and business, and U.S. Federal agencies ...

US News Op-Ed: Harry Reid a Hypocrite Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has taken to the floor of the Senate to denounce Republican benefactors Charles and David Koch as "shadowy billionaires" who "rig the system" with massive political contributions. It's a charge that one pundit terms an act of "hypocrisy." Reid is "a thug and a bully who takes advantage of the way the U.S. Constitution immunizes him for any damage he may do to the reputations of others," writes Peter Roff, a contributing editor at U.S. News & World Report. "There are some billionaires out there whom he likes very much, as long as they are willing to spend their money to help him hang on to his present position. Some people call this 'smart politics,' while others simply see it for what it is: hypocrisy." Reid needs Democrats to hold onto the Senate in November if he is to remain majority leader. "This means Reid needs to find deep-pocketed friends of his own, such as Tom and Jim Steyer, billionaires who stand to lose if the Keystone XL ...
MORE Democrats Who Took Koch Money (And Were Grateful For It) THINKSTOCK It almost seems as though every Democrat who has fallen in line behind Harry Reid to denigrate the political activity of the Koch Brothers has, at some point, benefited from Koch campaign money — including Reid himself. Reid himself took $500 in 2003; Senator Mary Landrieu (D-La.) took more than $50,000 — some of it as recently as the past election cycle; and Senator Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) took $25,000. And not only did Senator Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) accept money from the Kochs’ political action committee ahead of his 2010 Senate campaign, but he sounded *** grateful to get it. From John Hinderaker with the Powerline blog Monday: Chuck Schumer has joined Harry Reid in obsessive attacks on Charles and David Koch and their company, Koch Industries. Yesterday Schumer told Politico that the Democrats’ attacks on the Koch Brothers are paying off politically, and they intend to continue them. Here is the funny thing: when KochPAC, . ...
From Robert Reich in his Tumblr blog, another point of view for the current political strife we are currently embroiled in. The New Billionaire Political Bosses TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014 Charles and David Koch should not be blamed for having more wealth than the bottom 40 percent of Americans put together. Nor should they be condemned for their petrochemical empire. As far as I know, they’ve played by the rules and obeyed the laws. They’re also entitled to their own right-wing political views. It’s a free country. But in using their vast wealth to change those rules and laws in order to fit their political views, the Koch Brothers are undermining our democracy. That’s a betrayal of the most precious thing Americans share. The Kochs exemplify a new reality that strikes at the heart of America. The vast wealth that has accumulated at the top of the American economy is not itself the problem. The problem is that political power tends to rise to where the money is. And this combination of great wealth w ...

The Kochs want to eliminate minimum wage laws. “According to Charles Koch, the U.S. needs to get rid of the minimum wage, which he counts as a major obstacle to economic growth.” Read more. 3.

From the article: If you live in a battleground state this midterm election, you may be wondering who’s behind those controversial ads where people share their concerns with the nation’s new health care law. But if Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid gets his way, the public will soon know what Americans for Prosperity is, and who its billionaire backers, the Koch Brothers are, too. “I'm not surprised that he’s doing it,” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips told "The Fine Print" of Reid’s recent attacks against the conservative group’s chairman David Koch and his brother Charles. “I'm not surprised that he's doing it If you look at his history, his background ...
"The largest lease holder in Canada's oil sands is a subsidiary of Koch Industries, the conglomerate that is the source of the fortune owned by the controversial conservative political donors, Charles and David Koch. The Koch's holdings in the tar sands were disclosed by an activist group that analyzed mineral records of the Alberta government. The Koch subsidiary holds leases on at least 1.1 million acres in the northern Alberta oil sands, which span roughly 35 million acres; other industry experts estimate the total Koch holdings could be closer to 2 million acres. That puts Koch Industries ahead of energy heavyweights Royal Dutch Shell and Conoco Phillips, both of which lease significant acreage in the oil sands. The findings are likely to inflame the debate surrounding the proposed Keystone XL pipeline — which would transport tar sands oil to refineries in Texas — although the Koch's company has not reserved space in the pipeline. Activists argue that the Kochs do have a stake in the outcome of th ...

The Koch Bros who are the recipients of the Tar Sands oil through the XL pipeline fron Alberta to Huston, were recently exposed on how business is done their way: by Kim Barker and Theodoric Meyer, ProPublica. Libertarian billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch were among the first to grasp the political potential of social welfare groups and trade associations — nonprofits that can spend money to influence elections but don’t have to name their donors. The Kochs and their allies have built up a complex network of such organizations, which spent more than $383 million in the run-up to the 2012 election alone. Documents released in recent months show the Kochs have added wrinkles to their network that even experts well versed in tax law and campaign finance say they’ve never seen before — wrinkles that could make it harder to discern who controls each nonprofit in the web and how it disperses its money. A review of 2012 tax returns filed by Koch network groups shows that most have been set up a ...
Just finished reading a couple of NYC papers (Post and Daily News). There were a couple of articles in there that really irked me. The first one was about the *** who are protesting a $100M donation to NY Presbyterian Hospital. It didn't come with any qualifiers, but even a nurses union is against it! And you'll never believe why---Because it is from David Koch! I have news for these knuckle draggers- if it wasn't for Koch, and his ilk, there would be no 'free lunch'! Where the *** do they think the funds come from for medical research, free medical clinics, free daycare, etc.?
Albany has become a playground for the 1%. Politicians lavish tax breaks on luxury real estate developers while cutting affordable housing. They’re showered with corporate gifts from David Koch, Donald Trump, Fox News, Time Warner, hedge fund managers, casino operators, liquor industry and Advantage Foreclose Services. Then they turn around and cut vital public services like schools and hospitals. They defund our MTA transit service and we pay for it with fare hikes while almost 20 cents of every fare dollar goes to paying off debt service to JP Morgan Chase* The corruption is so rampant they don’t even hide it anymore 30 Albany legislators have gone to jail or been censured for corrupt practices in the last 7 years** Enough is enough. The People Demand Fair Elections. And we’re mobilizing to get them. Fair, publicly-funded elections in New York City have led to progressive victories.

Union thugs? Wait 'til you see the Kochs by Joan McCarter Mar 07, 2014 1:16pm PST Caricature of David Koch by DonkeyHotey This is just a mind-boggling statistic: The various Koch-sponsored groups spent "more than double the combined political spending (including to undisclosed group) for the top 10 unions combined" in 2012. Here's what that looks like: That includes all the "dark money" spending of both unions and the Kochs, money to Super PACs, etc. There's a concerted push now among conservatives to try to say that the Kochs really aren't bankrolling the Republican Party, and look! Unions! Bad! The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel either has no understanding of campaign finance, or is willfully misleading her readers. […] In her column, “The Really Big Money? Not the Kochs,” Strassel cites a Center for Responsive Politics list to claim that unions “collectively spent $620,873,623 more than Koch Industries” on political races. Of course, if you actually visit this page on the CPR webs ...
I'm a liberal and there are precious few of us left. I hope the libertarians keep up the good work on transforming Benghazi from a tragedy to a scandal. I have watched the results of the polls. The more the libertarians bring up Benghazi the further the gap grows between Hillary Clinton's numbers and the numbers of her republican opponents. I watched Adam Kinzinger hold up his voter card and say that he votes for what is in the best interest of the people of the sixteenth district. I knew then and there that he was going to face a challenge from the libertarians. For a moment he was acting like a leader. Now fear of him losing his seat has caused him to abandon the idea of leading and become a follower. I’m not sure why the republicans are going to nominate another puppet like Mitt Romney to come against Hillary Clinton. I think that the only leaders in their party are David Koch, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly and Rogers Ailes. They should give the nod to one of these fellows. David Koch ran for Vice P ...

Pablo Escobar is the world first criminal billionaire. As a an international drug trafficker his business model, management skills and personal techniques are truly something to marvel although his choice of business was illegal and and many lives were lost as a direct result of his actions. Many people admire him because he is the "FIRST" man to ever be "DOCUMENTED" as a "BILLIONAIRE." But his life was cut short as he was hunted down by legal authorities and killed before being taken to prison to do time. Horrible ending. However there are many men in the world today that have generated billions of dollars legally and have made great contributions to the world provided wealth for others and currently nice healthy lives free and happy. Great success stories such people like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Carlos Slim Helu, David Koch, Benard Arnault, Michael Bloomberg, The Waltons, Aliko Dangote, Michael Dell, Paul Allen the list goes on and on.

It's with deep regret that one of NJ's finest Congressman is retiring. Rush Holt has been a busy worker for the people of his district. Add to that his many innovative ideas on how to grow the hi-tech industry and the economy. It's no surprise that today more and more patriotic statesmen with a deep sense of integrity are being pushed out of government by the daily battle with the Tea Party. The best Dems and GOP are retiring because they are fed up wearing armor to get anything done. It's no secret the Tea Party deliberately causes our finest elected officials out of government so Charles and David Koch can BE the government.
Because I care about climate change, I'm glad Tom Steyer, a billionaire retired investor, will be spending $100 million on a hard-edge campaign of attack ads this fall against governors and lawmakers who are dragging their feet or opposing tougher environmental laws (as reported in this morning's New York Times). Steyer is also rallying other donors to build a war chest that would make his political organization, NextGen Climate Action similar in scale to the conservative political network overseen by Charles and David Koch. But because I care about our democracy, I'm dismayed that people like Steyer and the Koch Brothers are getting away with it. Some say that if we have rich liberal Democrats spending comparable amounts to rich conservative Republicans, our politics stays reasonably balanced, and we all win. I don't see it that way. When the views of average Americans are drowned out by big money, we all lose. What do you think?

Just spotted this little press piece form the weekend that I thought that you may be interested in. Credit card users need to be very vigilant about their cards and fees. Cheers, Graeme Mills. Worst card tricks revealed Money experts David Koch, John Rolfe and Kirsty Lamont discuss the fine print nasties most credit card holders fail to read. ONE in two credit cards are designed to never be paid off, leaving millions of card holders locked into a debt sentence. It’s just one of the hidden nasties that is catching customers out many of Australia’s 7.8 million credit card users.

What he was talking about at the time were a small handful of groups which included the John Birch Society ... the group that Charles and David Koch's father Frederick helped to start. Unfortunately his words were less than prophetic, only because people are stupid. My very conservative parents considered the Birchers to be dangerous crackpots. Today they are the most major funders of the Tea Party politicians.

In 1991, David Koch was a passenger on a US Air flight which landed at LAX then crashed into a small commuter plane on the runway. There were multiple casualties, but Koch was one of the survivors. He did not attempt to help a single person to get out of the burning plane. He was a freaking COWARD!!! If you doubt the veracity of the story, I saw the show about this crash on TV this past weekend. Koch was one of the survivors who was interviewed.

Attacking me for running for President wont do any good. It is not about me at all. I am just facing all the gun fighters. It is about running a real independent third party.

News from "The Perch", Mountain Date February 11, 2014 Ze Plane! Ze Plane! (also sometimes quoted as Da Plane! Da Plane! or The Plane! The Plane!) is a cultural reference to the typical opening of Fantasy Island, a television series which aired in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Each episode began with the diminutive Tattoo (played by Hervé Villechaize), one of the main characters, spotting the seaplane approaching the island and running up a tower and excitedly yelling, with a French accent, "Ze Plane! Ze Plane!" Just like Fantasy Island, once again we will be watching for Air Force One from the veranda of "The Perch" to arrive in our fair valley on February 14, 2014 carrying President Obama.

In recent years, Charles and David Koch have organized semiannual seminars to promote their political views. In June 2010, one such event was held in Aspen, Colorado, called "Understanding and Addressing Threats to American Free Enterprise and Prosperity". The invitation stated that "[our] prosperity is under attack by the current Administration and many of our elected officials" and "we cannot rely on politicians to [defend our free society], so it is up to us to combat what is now the greatest assault on American freedom and prosperity in our lifetimes". The seminar program indicated that "past meetings have featured such notable leaders as Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas; Governors Bobby Jindal and Haley Barbour; commentators John Stossel, Charles Krauthammer, Glenn Beck, and Rush Limbaugh; Senators Jim DeMint and Tom Coburn; and Representatives Paul Ryan, Mike Pence, and Tom Price."
CLASS WARFARE. Democrats aren’t perfect but it’s the Republicans who are mounting a war against the poor and working class – opposing extended benefits for the long-term unemployed, fighting an increase in the minimum wage, rejecting any expansion of Medicaid, opposing investments in education and job-training, rejecting any jobs program, busting unions, and seeking repeal of the Affordable Care Act. But all the GOP has to do to win a Senate majority next fall is pick up a net six seats. Democrats have to defend many more seats than Republicans, including in seven states Obama lost in 2012. Which is why it's particularly worrisome that “Americans for Prosperity,” the political front group financed by billionaires Charles and David Koch, has already spent a whopping $22 million on TV ads using Obamacare's botched roll-out to attack vulnerable Senate Democrats – and causing those Democrats’ approval ratings to plummet. AFP has become the biggest outside group in the upcoming elections. Yet tha ...
Don't Forget ... Chris Christie Endorses Koch Brothers Operative For Senate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) endorsed Steve Lonegan (R), the former New Jersey head for the Koch Brothers’ Americans for Prosperity, for U.S. Senate on Tuesday. Though Christie ran in 2009 promising a middle-of-the-road “common-sense approach,” this move puts him squarely behind a far-right Tea Party candidate best known for his attacks on immigration and Spanish-language ads — and his own record of hiring undocumented immigrants. In his unsuccessful 2009 gubernatorial primary campaign against the now-Governor, Lonegan remarked, “It’s clear to me that Mr. Christie is in over his head,” and ran as the more conservative candidate. But Christie’s record closely mirrors Lonegan’s on key issues: 1. Both ignore climate-change science. Lonegan, whose longstanding ties to Charles and David Koch make his position unsurprising, has called climate science “silly hysteria.” His campaign site website boasts of his o ...

The other night I listened to an episode of the CBS Radio Theater about a rich person that went to the Pearly Gates and was asked what acts of kindness he did for his fellow human. He answered that he gave millions to charity and set up a few charities of his own to help others. St. Peter asked him, "but did you do this out of the goodness of your heart." and the man answered, "No, I did it to help grow my business and to get as much publicity as possible for the money I invested in the charities." It would seem like people like Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Carlos Slim, Amancio Ortega, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison, Charles Koch, David Koch, Christy Walton,Jim Walton and so on do not do anything to support charities unless they and their respective companies can get massive gains out of their public donations. What will their answers be when they stand at the Pearly Gates one day? Makes you think.
