  • The Daily 202: Charles Koch congratulates Biden and says he wants to work together on ‘as many issues as possible’

    Billionaire industrialist Charles Koch expressed hope that President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will roll back President Trump’s tariffs, restore protections for “Dreamers” and enact policing reform that addresses systemic racism. “We certainly want to congratulate Biden and Harris for this historic win,” Koch said in a Zoom interview on Wednesday, even as most Republican lawmakers have yet to publicly acknowledge the electoral reality and the White House blocks the transition from moving ahead. “We're going to be looking for common ground and things that we can work together on for as many issues as possible.”
  • BONKERS: Krugman Says Charles Koch Wants Barrett to ‘Destroy The Planet’

    New York Times economist Paul Krugman is at it again. He’s promoting a conspiracy theory that libertarian billionaire Charles Koch wants U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett to — wait for it — destroy the planet. Sounds like Krugman may have been watching too much Star Wars. Promoting a Times article headlined, “Charles Koch’s Big Bet on Barrett,” Krugman tweeted: “This analysis got somewhat lost in the shuffle, but Charles Koch is going big for Barrett — not bc he hopes she'll destroy Roe or the ACA, but because he hopes she'll destroy the planet.”

    The donor-class Koch network headed by GOP mega-donor Charles Koch is now admitting they failed to turn the American people against President Trump’s tariffs on Chinese imports. In June 2018, the Koch network of organizations — which include Americans for Prosperity, Freedom Partners, and the Libre Initiative — launched a campaign against Trump’s economic nationalist policies that have helped weaken China’s economy and brought the U.S. steel industry roaring back, mostly by imposing tariffs on various foreign imports. The goal of the Koch network’s campaign was to champion free trade at all costs by claiming tariffs are increasing prices on...

  • Americans Apply for Jobs at Koch Foods After ICE Raid

    08/13/2019 2:15:38 PM PDT · by Red Badger · 56 replies ^ | 13 Aug 2019 | Neil Munro
    Roughly 150 locals attended an August 12 job fair to apply for jobs at the Koch Foods’ plants in Mississippi. The fair was run after the August 7 removal of 243 alleged illegal migrants in two of the company’s chicken processing plants, according to local authorities. The local Jackson Clarion-Ledger newspaper reported 25 to 30 people went to the job fair in Forest, Mississippi. The report said: Kamerio Whitley, a resident of the nearby town of Morton, spoke to reporters after he left the building. He said there were several positions available at the plant, including forklift operators. Whitley said...
  • Billionaire Koch Brothers: Americans Must Not ‘Turn Our Back’ on Refugees

    The billionaire, pro-mass immigration Koch brothers’ network of organizations are already railing against a rumored plan by President Trump to end all refugee resettlement to the United States, stating that Americans must not “turn our backs” on refugees. This month, reports have circulated that the Trump administration could further reduce the inflow of refugees arriving in the U.S., as Breitbart News reported. Federal immigration officials have requested that the current refugee cap — reduced by Trump to 30,000 annual admissions, which is merely a numerical limit and not a goal to be reached — be cut to anywhere between zero...

    The Koch Brothers are teaming up with tech companies, universities and other fellow billionaires to combat online extremism. On July 17, the After Charlottesville Project will host its second summit in San Francisco, California. Founded in the aftermath of the deadly 2017 white supremacist attacks in Virginia, the conference brings together political and business leaders to discuss solutions for curbing political terrorism. While last year’s gathering in Missouri involved grassroots and city response initiatives, the focus of this year’s summit will involve the “private tech sector” and “best practices on the fight against hate and extremism online,” according to the...

    The Koch brothers’ — the billionaire plutocrats and GOP mega-donors — network of organizations are railing against President Trump’s tariffs on China to protect American workers and U.S. industry. This month, Trump hiked tariffs to 25 percent on about $200 billion worth of Chinese manufactured goods. Trump has also ordered trade officials to begin reviewing the process of increasing tariffs to 25 percent on an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods. In the wake of the latest round of tariffs, the Koch brothers’ organizations like the Americans for Prosperity (AFP) and the Libre Initiative demand that the Trump administration...

    Indian Wells, Calif. — On paper, the outlook for an immigration deal, either small-scale or comprehensive, has rarely looked grimmer. President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi detest each other, with Pelosi calling Trump’s vision of border security “an immorality” and the president having outraged Democrats by rescinding protections for those previously covered under DACA and Temporary Protected Status. Migrant chains rush to the border and encounter Border Patrol officers with tear gas, fueling the perception of a lawless mob pounding at the gates of the country. Democratic presidential candidates flirt with the idea of abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs...

The Koch donor network, among the most powerful force in conservative circles, also plans to tackle poverty, addiction and education in the coming two-year election cycle, according to the message.

    The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers say ending welfare-dependent immigration to the United States would do “serious harm” to the nation and be a “serious mistake.” President Trump’s administration is looking to implement a policy that protects American taxpayers’ dollars from funding the mass importation of welfare-dependent foreign nationals by enforcing a “public charge” rule whereby legal immigrants would be less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including using Obamacare, food stamps, and public housing. The immigration controls would be a boon for American taxpayers in the...

    The pro-mass immigration, GOP megadonor, billionaire Koch brothers are opposing President Trump’s plan to executively end birthright citizenship, which rewards the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens. On Tuesday, President Trump announced that he is readying an executive order to end birthright citizenship in the U.S. The unilateral move would carry the country into the future on the issue, putting the nation more in line with similar Western countries. Currently, the U.S. and Canada are the only developed nations in the world that offer unrestricted birthright citizenship. The children of illegal aliens are commonly known as “anchor babies,” as they anchor...

    The pro-mass immigration, GOP megadonor, billionaire Koch brothers are opposing President Trump’s initiative to save American taxpayers from having to subsidize welfare-dependent legal immigrants. Since February, Breitbart News has reported how the Trump administration is set to enforce an existing law whereby foreign nationals seeking to permanently resettle in the U.S. would need to prove that they will not become drains on the American taxpayer. ...

    The Cato Institute, a think tank partially founded by the billionaire, pro-mass immigration Koch brothers, is advocating for full open borders to the United States. In an op-ed for USA Today, the Cato Institute’s Director of Economic Studies, Jeffrey Miron, says the U.S. “has nothing to fear, and much to gain, from open borders,” saying that Americans should “forget” about putting a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to stop illegal immigration. Miron downplayed the negative impact open borders would have on American citizens, writing: Immigrants will not flood into America, although the rate of immigration might increase. Instead, much of...

    President Trump ripped the Koch brothers one day after the political network formed by the billionaire conservative businessmen said it would not support a Republican Senate candidate in North Dakota “The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade,” Trump said in a series of tweets early Tuesday. “I never sought their support because I don’t need their money or bad ideas. They love my Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judicial picks & more. I made them richer. Their network is highly overrated, I have beaten them at every...
