Koch brothers begin to become clearer

Charles and David Koch were first revealed to be major donors to Republicans and other conservative groups back in the early 2000s when many Democrats and liberals rallied against their influence. The Koch brothers have a much longer history supporting conservative contests reveals and article on Bill Moyer’s website which traces the history of the Koch brothers, their role in politics, and some of the common myths surrounding the brothers and the causes that they support.

Charles Koch’s significant wealth comes from Koch Industries, a company that their father started and which has significantly expanded beyond its roots in the gas and oil industry to offer a fully diversified suite of products and services ranging from chemicals products to financial instruments. Charles Koch emphasizes the important role that the U.S. Constitution should serve in society as well as the importance of small government, low taxes, and taking personal responsibility for your own actions.

The Koch brothers control a core number of political action committees, the most prominent of which is called Americans for Prosperity which are devoted to supporting candidates and charities that support their ideals. The Koch brothers don’t just throw their money at random candidates but support an core group which is a myth exposed in the Moyer’s article. Further, their network of Political Action Committees (PACs) are larger in scope than just themselves and rely on contributions from a number of different donors to support the organizations they fund. The PACs that they fund are beyond the scope of just their business interests as a result.

Beyond that, several other myths associated Charles Koch are exposed in the article. Many believe that the Koch brothers political groups are founded with the aim of promoting their personal business interests. This does not appear to be true as the Koch brothers support causes that do not directly benefit their business in many ways and appear to be aligned with the Koch Brothers own sense of morality, namely supporting their own idea of small government and taking personality responsibility for your own actions.

Instead of demonizing him, this article explores and exposes more about Charles Koch who are only now beginning to come out of their cocoon and issue interviews defending their contributions and beliefs.

David Koch and His Allies May Target Trump

The Koch brothers, Charles and David, influential Republican billionaire donors, are considering a campaign against presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. It depends upon his success or lack thereof in the early primaries.

Charles Koch said he and his allies badly underestimated Trump. He took issue with Trump’s views on taxes, trade and foreign policy. He mentioned that Trump’s idea of keeping Muslims on a registry would “destroy our free society.”

He made his remarks at an interview reported in Vanity Fair in January during which publicize his new book, “Good Profit.” But the conversation turned to politics. He said he has become disillusioned with politics in general and the Republican primary race in particular. “You’d think we could have more influence,” he said.

Koch and his allies raised $400 million to bolster Mitt Romney’s campaign in 2012. After the defeat, they studied why their plan failed and what to improve upon for the 2016 race. They are also considering passing on the primaries because there is no one candidate everyone agrees upon.

Trump had asked the Kochs for support, and they refused. He hired a long-time associate of the brothers as his campaign manager to no avail. Trump was also not invited to a “donor summit” organized by the Kochs last summer, which five other Republican candidates attended.

Trump’s weaknesses have been pinpointed by the Koch alliance. Two in particular have been noted: His bankruptcies and “predatory” business deals. Regarding the possible attack, a Koch official was quoted in Vanity Fair as saying, “As to whether we would mount something like that, everything is on the table. But there’s no real plan. In all of our meetings we’ve discussed it.” However, if the two final candidates are Trump and Hillary Clinton, the entire election may be bypassed by the Kochs and their allies.

Charles and David Koch inherited the nation’s second largest business, Koch Industries, from their father. Charles is the CEO and Board Member of Koch Industries. They are generous donors to that arts and conservative political causes. They began their activism in politics by supporting the Libertarian Party during the 1970s, which produced no traction. They switched to Republican politics, organizing fundraising on a gigantic scale.
