    Former President George W. Bush told radio host Hugh Hewitt on April 22 that he is working with the Koch Network to help President Joe Biden pass an amnesty and cheap-labor bill through Congress. “We’ve got a coalition of like-minded people working this issue,” Bush told Never Trump Hewitt Thursday. Bush, whose poll rating dipped to 33 percent in 2008 after pushing amnesties in 2006 and 2007, continued: Now there hasn’t been interparty outreach, yet. But maybe it’s not quite ripe. My view is if the President is sincere about this, he ought to sit down with, you know, some...

    The idea of complaining about the people funding the conservative movement seems a bit odd, after all, they cut a lot of big checks. They fund think tanks and websites, the very heart of the conservative movement, and those organizations have done some great work in the past. The only problem is it’s not the past anymore, and the old model no longer works. The people funding the left have out-flanked the right, and it is long past time for the right to catch up. Yes, it was a good year for Republican House candidates, and depending on how Georgia...

    Libertarian billionaire Charles Koch says he now regrets funding Tea Party-aligned groups because it deepened partisan tensions in the United States. 'Boy, did we screw up!' the 85-year-old Koch says in a forthcoming book, according to The Wall Street Journal. 'What a mess!' The Tea Party rose to prominence in the run-up to the 2010 midterm elections, as a response to the election of Democratic President Barack Obama in 2008.

    Main Street investors have increased their buying of stocks during the current market downdraft. Where is all the selling pressure coming from?

Recent data shows that main street investors have increased their buying of stocks during the current dramatic downturn. And yet the market is tanking—the Dow closed down 9.99% today.

    Senator Bernie Sanders campaign appears to be walking back a key plank of its radical immigration policy -- a total moratorium on all deportations -- by promising that “violent criminals” could still be removed from the country. Sanders’ campaign, in its immigration proposal, promises a “moratorium on deportations until a thorough audit of past practices and policies is complete.” The document does not specify how long that freeze would last, but it does also envision breaking up both Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and handing deportation power back to the Department of Justice. ...

    When the CNN moderators gave Sanders the Trump treatment, the outraged ululations of the Left could be heard from sea to shining sea. Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi tweeted, “This is an unusually vile performance by CNN.” The Nation’s Elie Mystal raged, “Jesus Christ I hate these biased questions from the moderators. ‘How would you keep your plan from bankrupting the country?’ JUST ASK THE KOCH BROTHERS TO MODERATE NEXT TIME!” HuffPost’s Zach Carter griped about CNN’s post-debate panel discussion, “CNN’s crew is just straight bashing Sanders post-debate.” The New Republic’s Libby Watson whined, “CNN is truly a terrible influence on...

    The press office for Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, a Democrat, has been trying to get media outlets within the state to remove two stories posted online because they object to the source. Earlier this month, writer Derek Draplin reported that Polis had established a new office—the Office of the Future of Work—to research the state's changing economy and workforce and make policy recommendations to the governor's office. Draplin published the article in The Center Square, a nonprofit media outlet. The factually accurate story (read it here) quotes Polis praising the creation of the office, as well as a Colorado GOP...

    WASHINGTON -- David Koch, one of the two celebrated Koch brothers known to millions of Americans who follow the news, passed away last Friday. He was 79. Now there is only one Koch brother to appear in the news. Yet the name Koch will be around for years. One sees the name frequently when business is being discussed, in discussions of the arts, in discussions of politics, particularly libertarian politics. Does anyone stop to wonder why the name Koch appears so frequently in the news? Well, I have had some experience with the Kochs, and I have an insight into...

    When libertarian billionaire David Koch passed away last week, the left couldn't -- and wouldn't -- hide its glee. Finally, an important funder of right-wing causes had died! Bill Maher even said that he was "glad" that Koch had passed away, adding he hoped "the end was painful." That's the kind of hate the left had and continues to have for Mr. Koch, a man who became extremely rich and who then proceeded to use that wealth to support causes he believed in. Although he was most famous for donating to political causes, Mr. Koch was extremely generous to other...

    The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers, mega-donors to the GOP establishment, helped market endless free trade policies to Democrat politicians, a new book details. A report by the Intercept outlines a recently released book titled Kochland by Christopher Leonard where the author alleges that brothers Charles and David Koch funded a 2007 report by the left-wing Third Way organization to warn Democrat politicians against the populist, economic nationalist arguments made by Lou Dobbs at the time. Though aligned for the last few decades with Republican lawmakers, the Kochs were major supporters of the economic policies of the Obama administration which sought...
  • KOCH BROTHERS AND THE GOP

    I wish President Trumps watches Tucker Carlson because you get to knows about things that you would rarely hear about on other channels than Fox. For example, Tucker's "Tech Tyranny" is a great example where he shows a coordinated effort in social media remove free speech and thereby help the democrats win 2020. In this case Tucker points out the problems with the Koch brothers and the multiple ways they are hurting the Republican Party and destroying Trump's efforts to rebuild the country. It is shocking what goes on behind the scenes.

    The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers’ network of billionaire, donor-class organizations is readying to financially back Democrats, so long as they promise to support amnesty for illegal aliens and vote to advance free trade at all costs. In a memo to its staff, the Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP) organization announced that the economic libertarian group is set to back any elected official in Washington, DC, — including Democrats — who support their agenda of amnesty for illegal aliens and endless free trade, and oppose the GOP voter-preferred economic nationalist agenda of less immigration and tariffs to protect American jobs.

    If a billionaire’s approach to philanthropy is a reflection of himself, Charles Koch’s latest initiative tackling poverty embodies both the wealthy industrialist’s business acumen and his distaste for big government. The 3-year-old Stand Together Foundation has lately taken center stage in the Koch empire, which has been recalibrating some of its wide-ranging operation that is both villainized and revered by the American public. The shifting strategy comes as the GOP icon’s sprawling network of rich donors, powerful political groups and various tax-exempted advocacy organizations continues to downplay its more well-known but controversial political agenda, which has pumped hundreds of millions...

    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...

    OXON HILL, Md. — The Koch political network for the first time plans to intervene in GOP primaries as part of a deliberate 2020 strategy to reverse years of essentially rubber-stamping the Republican Party in general elections. Disappointed with Republicans in Congress and occasionally at odds with President Trump, the coalition of political groups overseen by Charles Koch has been re-evaluating its engagement in federal campaigns. Playing in GOP primaries to elect more like-minded Republicans to the House and Senate is key tactical adjustment the network has agreed to, with a top Koch official confirming that incumbents could be targeted...
