Who are the Kochs?

Republican politicians saved their ass when convicted of grand theft.
Their deficient gas pipeline killed two teenagers.
The Kochs helped build and fund the teabaggers.
...and more.



Much of the Kochs' (David and Charles) comes from industrial operations:

  • Koch Pipeline Company LP:; owns and operates 4,000 miles of pipeline used to transport oil, natural gas liquids and chemicals
  • Flint Hill Resources LP, that operates oil refineries in six states.
  • Koch Fertilizer, LLC, owns or has interests in fertilizer plants the United States, Canada, Trinidad and Tobago and Italy.
  • Matador Ranch in Texas
  • Oil Speculation: Ranked among top 10 global commodities traders.
  • Oil Sands: Kochs' Flint Hills Resources Canada LP already imports & refines 25% of Canada's oil sands and operates a crude oil terminal in Canda. Kochs stand to profit from increased tar sands flow.

Kochs make money trading commodities:
  What was the Koch brothers’ interest in deregulating derivatives? Unknown to most Americans, in addition to its oil, chemical and lumber interests, Koch Industries has a sprawling futures trading operation known as Koch Supply & Trading.

“Like a casino that bets at its own craps table, Koch engages in ‘proprietary trading’ – speculating for the company’s own bottom line. ‘We’re like a hedge fund and a dealer at the same time,’ bragged Ilia Bouchouev, head of Koch’s derivatives trading in 2004. ‘We can both make markets and speculate.’ The company’s many tentacles in the physical oil business give Koch rich insight into market conditions and disruptions that can inform its speculative bets. When oil prices spiked to record heights in 2008, Koch was a major player in the speculative markets, according to documents leaked by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, with trading volumes rivaling Wall Street giants like Citibank. Koch rode a trader-driven frenzy – detached from actual supply and demand – that drove prices above $147 a barrel in July 2008, battering a global economy about to enter a free fall.”

Who attends thosye secretive Kochfests? Meet Ken Griffin: Private jet, several full-floor condos in Chicago and New York, was bailed out by taxpayers, and pays a lower tax rate. (Maybe the Kochs call this "free enterprise"?)

Koch borg nominated to SEC
On October 20, 2015, President Obama announced that his nominee to fill a Republican seat on the SEC would be Hester Peirce, a Senior Research Fellow and Director of the Financial Markets Working Group at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. According to SourceWatch, the Mercatus Center “was founded and is funded by the Koch Family Foundations.”

A new group that's being cobbled together with fossil fuel backing hopes to spend about $10 million dollars per year to boost petroleum-based transportation fuels and attack government subsidies for electric vehicles, according to refining industry sources familiar with the plan. A Koch Industries board member and a veteran Washington energy lobbyist are working quietly to fund and launch the new advocacy outfit.

The Koch "Center for Free Enterprise": A Slippery Slope Indeed
[Koch biographer Daniel] Schulman relates how [Charles] Koch and other trustees meddled in hiring decisions and caused the abrupt resignation of a well-liked headmaster. “Incensed parents threatened to pull their children from the school; faculty members quit; students wore black in protest. Charles stepped down from the board of trustees citing, among other reasons, the school’s refusal to integrate his management style. But in a sign of just how much influence he exerted over the school; Richard Fink, one of Charles’s key advisors and an architect of Market-Based Management was installed as Collegiate’s interim head. The outrage ran so deep that, as Fink tried to tamp down the uproar, he was hung in effigy around campus.”

The Koch Brothers Are Now Funding The Bundy Land Seizure Agenda
The political network of the conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch signaled last week that it is expanding its financial and organizational support for a coalition of anti-government activists and militants who are working to seize and sell America's national forests, monuments, and other public lands.

Have the Kochs hijacked democracy?

"The Kochs and their network of billionaires have ALREADY bought the American political system: the House, the Senate, many state legislatures, the systems of legislative and Congressional redistricting and significant beachheads in American higher education. Only the White House has eluded their grasp, though now most of the Republican candidates are dependent on their largesse and responsive to the policy demands of the plutocrats who bankroll all except Trump. Further, she argues that what we once knew as the Republican Party is, in effect, being supplanted by a private party of billionaires who use its machinery but have little use for the traditional political tools of compromise and negotiation. Why? Because they want what they want, hate government and don't really care if it works."

How the billionaire Koch brothers are ghostwriting the American story to their own benefit
“…The Charles Koch metanarrative — and he’s said it explicitly — is that he is challenging collectivism, he is challenging the idea that when people get together they can do good,” [Naomi Klein] said. “And he is putting forward the worldview that we’re all very familiar with that if you free the individual to pursue their self-interest that will actually benefit the majority. So you need to attack everything that is collective, whether it’s labor rights or whether it’s public health care or whether it’s regulatory action. All of this falls under the metanarrative of an attack on collectivism.”

Colorado Senate president: [Koch-funded] AFP is a partner of ours
Colorado Senate President Bill Cadman, a Colorado Springs Republican, celebrated his party’s alliance with Americans for Prosperity [AFP]and praised the group for aiding his political career.

“AFP is a partner of ours…I don’t think I’d be the president of the Senate if it wasn’t for the efforts of you and yours in the previous elections. We look forward to continuing our partnership with you,” he said, to applause from AFP members and supporters.

Joni Ernst: Another Koch-owned subsidiary.
How the Kochs created Joni Ernst
"The network’s financial support for Ernst --detailed here for the first time -- offers the first signs of a move into GOP primaries. The Kochs and their allies are investing in a pipeline to identify, cultivate and finance business-oriented candidates from the local school board all the way to the White House, and Koch operatives are already looking for opportunities to challenge GOP incumbents deemed insufficiently hard-line in their opposition to government spending and corporate subsidies.”

THIS is what the Koch brothers mean when they talk about "free economy" and "market economics":

"David Novak, the executive chairman of the company that owns KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut, has a lot to look forward to—$234 million, to be exact. That’s the size of his retirement package, which is the largest of any top executive’s. Novak, whose company has fought minimum-wage increases that would benefit its workers, can expect a $1.3 million check every month once he retires."

Please note that Chuckie Koch has advocated eliminating the minimum wage!

Libre Initiative, backed by the Koch brothers, tries to lure Latinos to GOP

Welcome to the Wholly Owned Koch Subsidiary Formerly Known as Wisconsin
"As my colleague Brendan Fischer reported, the only group lobbying in favor of the bill to deform the GAB is David Koch's Americans for Prosperity, which spent $10 million in Wisconsin during the 2011-2012 recall elections of Governor Walker and other state officials. A newly-formed group called "Wisconsin Alliance for Reform" has begun running radio ads supporting the bill; its web domain was registered by Lorrie Pickens, a former leader of AFP, and its Executive Director is Luke Fuller, a former staffer for the bill's sponsor Sen. Leah Vukmir (who is also the number two at the Koch-backed American Legislative Exchange Council, or 'ALEC.')"

Chuckie Koch says all of his political spending is "reported" and that he opposes all government subsidies. In reality, Koch-backed dark money groups are heavily involved in elections, and Koch Industries officials have lobbied to protect oil industry subsidies. (Here's the truth)

“I do not believe that just because you’re opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed.

And why would I think that you don’t?

Because you don’t want any tax money to go there.
That’s not pro-life.
That’s pro-birth.
We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is.”

Climate-change denier was paid by Big Oil,
including Chuckie Koch's foundation

The Koch brothers spew a LOT of propaganda designed to promote their selfish, extremist, harmful agenda. New documents reveal their involvement in climate change denial.

From the New York Times:

One of the names they [politicians] invoke most often is Wei-Hock Soon, known as Willie, a scientist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics who claims that variations in the sun’s energy can largely explain recent global warming. 

He has accepted more than $1.2 million in money from the fossil-fuel industry over the last decade while failing to disclose that conflict of interest in most of his scientific papers. At least 11 papers he has published since 2008 omitted such a disclosure, and in at least eight of those cases, he appears to have violated ethical guidelines of the journals that published his work.

The documents show that Dr. Soon, in correspondence with his corporate funders, described many of his scientific papers as “deliverables” that he completed in exchange for their money. He used the same term to describe testimony he prepared for Congress.

The Kochs: A Long History of
Secrecy, Political Involvement,
Massive Political Spending, and Propaganda

Triad Management

Triad Management was a front group for the politically active, conservative oil billionaires Charles and David Koch, that they used to manipulate the outcomes of elections across the country for House and Senate races. Jane Mayer, a reporter for The New Yorker magazine, wrote about Triad Management in an August 30, 2010 article, saying

  In 1997, another Senate investigation began looking into what a minority report called “an audacious plan to pour millions of dollars in contributions into Republican campaigns nationwide without disclosing the amount or source,” in order to evade campaign-finance laws. A shell corporation, Triad Management, had paid more than three million dollars for attack ads in twenty-six House races and three Senate races. More than half of the advertising money came from an obscure nonprofit group, the Economic Education Trust. The Senate committee’s minority report suggested that “the trust was financed in whole or in part by Charles and David Koch of Wichita, Kansas.” The brothers were suspected of having secretly paid for the attack ads, most of which aired in states where Koch Industries did business. In Kansas, where Triad Management was especially active, the funds may have played a decisive role in four of six federal races. The Kochs, when asked by reporters if they had given the money, refused to comment. In 1998, however, the Wall Street Journal confirmed that a consultant on the Kochs’ payroll had been involved in the scheme. Charles Lewis, of the Center for Public Integrity, described the scandal as “historic. Triad was the first time a major corporation used a cutout”—a front operation—“in a threatening way. Koch Industries was the poster child of a company run amok.

From a Koch-group-created "Tea Party" website in 2002:
In 2002, our U.S. Tea Party is a national event, hosted continuously online, and open to all Americans who feel our taxes are too high and the tax code is too complicated. Take the quiz and dump some tea!

The Web Boycott Koch Brothers

Editorial Opinion:
Why the Koch brothers represent a danger to the U.S.

Given their weath, influence, and power, the Kochs are in a privileged postion. They can buy politicians, they spend heavily on lobbying, and they fund numerous groups focused on the Koch agenda. They can effectively hide behind these groups, and all the groups can broadcast the same Koch message -- which serves to (falsely) legitimize it.

They have raised, and spent, astronomically huge sums in an effort to effectively buy government -- by buying politicians. They now have tremendous influence in the Republican Party.

Through their radica-right group called "Americans For Prosperity" (AFP, which would be better named "Americans For Plutocrats"), they have been interfering on the local and state level. AFP sends deceptive and misleading mailers, engages in deceptive robo calls, and was a major force in forming and promoting teabagger groups. With a paid staff and a presence in 43 or so states, AFP is an insidious force, working to enact the Koch agenda.

Koch talk about "economic freedom" revolves primarily around policies which would serve to further enrich the Kochs and harm the working class. They want to destroy government and government agencies which protect people from polluters like the Kochs.

The Kochs are major funders of the American Legisllative Exchange Council (ALEC), an insidious marriage of corporations and (mostly Republican) politicians. Corporations draft laws in consort with the politicians they own, and those laws get introduced into state legislatures.

The Kochs, with other Big Oil corporations, are funders of climate change denial and opposition to renewable energy like rooftop solar cells.

The United States is now effectively an oligarchy, with corporations and plutocrats like the Kochs controlling government and oppressing the working class.

Thanks to the Kochs, we are on our way to a return to serfdom.

Both Democratic and Republican politicians sell themselves to the highest bidder. We need change, and we need to send the duopoly a message: "We are fed up with you".

We need viable third parties, like the Green Party, which accepts no corporate donations.

Your vote means nothing. We are always relegated to voting for the least-worst candidate, and that candidate comes from the corrupt Democratic Party or the more corrupt Republican Party. If you plan to vote for a Democrat or a Republican, I recommend you just sit out the next election. Whomever you vote for will not serve you.



Fred Koch, the father of Chuckie and Davey, helped found the John Birch Society.
Chuckie was a member of the Birchers.
Davey ran for vice-president on the 1980 Libertarian ticket.

Below is the 1980 Libertarian platform.
There is no reason to believe the Kochs do not still hold these radical views.
