So where do the Koch Brothers rank in the battle for largest donors to political causes? Open Secrets gives us an idea who the big donors are.

God bless the Koch Brothers

Why Koch Industries Is Speaking Out
Crony capitalism and bloated government prevent entrepreneurs from producing the products and services that make people's lives better.

There is nothing the Koch Brothers are NOT engaged in according to lunatic libs. Latest MSNBC rumor is Koch Brothers are bankrolling George Zimmer's defense and paying for his day to day expenses.

Big Koch Brothers Romney fundraiser today in The Hamptons. Libs protesting. Occupiers. Looks to have fizzled.

Interesting reading.

Not surprised to see Goldman Sachs high up on the list. They benefit greatly from a number of government practices.

AT&T? Quite interesting. They still HQ'd there in Texas?

Lots of unions on the list. Where do unions get all that money. Oh right! They strong arm their membership to pay outrageous dues to build up those political war chests.

Evil money donors:


Mmmmm ... mostly g'ment unions and g'ment shills ... and demoFascist elites seem to be the biggest benefactors.

Just wondering: What would happen if none of these massive contributions were deductible?

(And the Koch Brothers didn't make the fattest top 20 cut, or even the top 50!. ... )

Sullivan talked about this on his radio program thurs or weds, I forget which ...

The Koch bros were something like 69th on the list. There were many unions and corporations ahead of them.

PS if you dont listen to Sullivan? Too bad.

Egg actly, David. Was discussed at length on Sullivan's program the other day. IIRC, the Koch brothers were # 60 something on the list.

Yet the liberal left media, tools of the liberal left, continue to perpetuate the lie.

We should start another thread: "Soros: behind the scenes money-man for left wing causes" ...

------- From the Saul Alinsky Play Book ----

"The rules:
“Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have." (Lie a lot)
“Never go outside the expertise of your people.” (Dumb down the masses)
“Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” (Dumb down the kids)
“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” (Lie a lot)
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” (Lie a lot)
“A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” (Be funny and lie a lot)
“A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” (MoveOn)
“Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” (Lie a whole lot, repeatedly)
“The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” (The accusation and the repeated lies are enough)
"The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition." (Push all the buttons, again and again)
“If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” (Lie a whole lot = "Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth)
“The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” (Even if that "constructive alternative" is foolish, stupid, costly, unmanageable, ...)
“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” (Be divisive and lie a whole lot) ..."

-----------

There is a whole lot that can be learned about the left and how they get where they want to be. The rules above are all double edged swords and could be used by anyone to further any agenda.
