They’ve been vilified by the left. If you didn’t know better you’d think they wore black hats and had greasy mustaches. They probably like to torture kittens and tie helpless damsels to railroad tracks. In fact, Harry Reid calls them “about as un-American as anyone I can imagine.” Those dastardly Koch brothers – what horrible people they must be! Here’s proof. It’s their response to Harry Reid’s attack on them, a rant from Reid on the Senate floor:
At Koch, these are the things in which we believe: a government of appropriate size and scope such that it allows Americans the freedom and liberty to pursue happiness and well-being—for themselves and their families. We also believe in a government that operates on a balanced budget and does not burden American taxpayers with things like unfunded liabilities and mandates; a government that respects the integrity of our country’s Constitutional principles; and regulatory bodies that don’t impose needless burdens on entrepreneurs and job creators, both large and small.
This topic is worthy of vigorous dialogue and civil debate between people who exercise mutual respect for others with opposing viewpoints. We are disappointed that Senator Reid is attacking private citizens rather than the problems facing this nation. It is no wonder that Americans have lost faith in Congress.
Wow. They sound awful. In fact, they are such horrible human beings that they’ve donated more than $300 million to cancer research at such institutions as Johns Hopkins, Sloan Kettering and others. And how dare they fund the PBS show “Nova” for so many years along with the Smithsonian’s Museum of Natural History? They even have the nerve to donate over $150 million to the Museum of Modern Art in NY and the Lincoln Center. What despicable people they are! Check out the Koch Foundation website for more. Of course, the world would be a much better place if everyone was more like Harry Reid. He’s such a fine, upstanding citizen. Here’s a great clip from “Fox & Friends” discussing all this:
And if Harry Reid wants to rail against donors who are trying to buy influence, why just single out the Koch brothers? Why not unions, George Soros and others? I know….rhetorical question. But actually, the answer lies in the fact that the Supreme Court agreed with the Citizens United case and upheld free speech. Obama and his minions have been seething about this ever since and in perfect Saul Alinsky style, found other ways to stifle speech. In reality when the facts are examined, the Koch brothers don’t even come close to other groups that wield political influence and are in the pocket of the Democrat party:
Here’s a so-called “Koch Brothers Guide” published during the election of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker with the intent of smearing all of them. Frankly, I plan to buy these products from now on. Note the attempt to slam their father as a founder of the ‘radical right-wing political group John Birch Society.’ I wonder if these geniuses know the Democrat party founded the KKK:
God Bless America – Pass This On!!
The world is blowing up, most notably the former Soviet Socialist Republic known as the Ukraine is disintegrating before our eyes. The eastern part of the country identifies with Russia while the western part wants to be part of the EU. One thing’s for sure: Obama has no clue how to deal with it.
As happened, here is raw video of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. These first choppers are likely carrying elite Spetsnaz troops (estimated at 500 hundred of a larger invasion force). As US news catches up with coverage on this story over the weekend, they will be the guys with the faces covered to avoid detection and recognition. Ruthless doesn’t do the word justice with these guys.
A much larger contingent of (125,000) Russian forces are poised just over the border. And CNN does a ‘good job’ of helping make this charade into a civil rights battle. But that is another day.
The best parallel for this could be 1938, and the German invasion of the Sudentenland.
Since taking office, Obama and Hillary Clinton have dismantled the nuclear deterrent around Poland and The Baltics that was envisioned under Reagan.
The US missile defense complex in Poland, also called the European Interceptor Site (EIS), was part of the Ballistic Missile Defense European Capability of the US. The value of such a deterrent became much clearer on August 14, 2008 when Russia invaded 2008 South Ossetia. Who Said That???
For all we see on TV and in papers, few nailed the events of the last week better than the person quoted below.
“After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.” (*Scroll down to see who this was.)
Oh yeah…remember how Mitt Romney was called out by Obama during the Presidential campaign as being stuck back in the Cold War? This video is truly revealing when viewed with today’s eyes.
Romney was right about a lot of things (Shaka to Scott):
God Bless America – Pass This On!!
*The visionary? It was Sarah Palin in 2008:
