How can I avoid buying Koch gasoline?
If you live in an area where a Koch refinery is located, you probably can't, unless you buy an electric vehicle.

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.

I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations
which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength,
and bid defiance to the laws of our country.

Koch Brothers Extremism Started With Father Fred

Lisa Graves, at the Center for Media and Democracy's PR Watch
has written an informative article about the Koch brothers
and the origin of their extremism: Their father Fred.


The Koch Brothers: The Extremist Roots Run Deep

Some women and men spend their lives rebelling against their father or mother, but others follow in their footsteps or yearn for their approval. Some become friends.

A few spend millions to make their parents' vision a reality.

Charles and David Koch are among those few.

Charles Koch Chuckie Koch makes a feeble and failed effort to whitewash himself in a letter published by Rupert Murdochs's right-wint rag, "The Wall Street Journal". The heat must be getting to Chuckie for him to crawl out of his worm hole. The scary part: He may really believe that he and Davey can save the United States from itself...if only the country lets Chuckie and Davey run it.

Read the oft-cited OpenSecrets.org "Heavy Hitters" report AND be sure to read the disclaimer: " It's also important to note that we aren't including donations to politically active dark money groups, like Americans for Prosperity, a group linked to the Koch brothers, or the liberal group Patriot Majority — because these groups hide their donors"

Koch Brothers Political Empire
Continues To Metastasize

The Koch political empire continues to metastasize into what a Washington Post investigative article on January 5 calls "a far-reaching operation of unrivaled complexity, built around a maze of groups that cloaks its donors, according to an analysis of new tax returns and other documents. (Climate Science Watch)

Koch-backed political coalition, designed to shield donors, raised $400 million in 2012.

As it turns out, Koch Industries' corporate PAC is a big supporter of many of the 20  "dissident" Republican House members who have been identified as the biggest thorns in the side of the Republican leadership on the shutdown and the debt ceiling. 

In fact, KochPAC and the conservative activist group Citizens United both stand out for their support of members of this group.

Some TRUTHS About Health Care (Refuting Kochster Lies):
Investigative reporter Kurt Eichnwald offers truths about our expensive privately-operated health care system:

 


Fan Mail:

From B:

Hey, I notice there's no information about which oil companies the koch industry owned. When I"m buying gas, I want to know which companies I should boycott.

My reply:
Koch refined products are generally sold through wholesalers. In the case of gasoline, the Kochs may sell to many wholesalers who, in turn, sell to the gas stations. In areas where Koch refineries are located, their refined products may end up and many or most places. Here's an example from Minnesota. If you live in an area where a Koch refinery is located, the best way to avoid enriching the Kochs is to buy an electric vehicle.


From J:

The image on your site (now removed - but it was from this photo) is shameful. Making fun of the developmentally disabled (blog comment about the men in the picturel) is probably not the best way to market yourselves to those most likely to boycott the Kochs.

My reply:

The image is one which has commonly been used throughout the web as an illustration of people being derided (e.g., teabaggers). My use of it was not intended to denigrate anyone, especially the two men in the picture (Dresie and Cassie). However, I have changed the graphic to include an image purchased from a stock photo supplier. . And doing a bit of background research is always a good idea. But I find your concern and comment most worthwhile for its thought-provoking aspect. What you indicated is that those most likely to boycott the Kochs possess human compassion, empathy, and concern for those who may be disadvantaged. In my own opinion, I doubt those qualities rank high for the Kochs or their supporters.

Related: Here's another photo of Dresie and Casie. (source)


From S:

You have done a valuable service by creating this website. I am still technically a Repub. but don't recognize this party anymore. I will boycott GP and the other products from now on and pass the info to my friends. If you are doing other organizing, please let me know how I can help. Thanks!

From DR:

Subject: Lay Off

Why do you bother the Koch brothers? Please leave them alone.
We need freedom of expression, not the silence of lambs---They
speak up for a lot of people. It's these other rich people
you should be worried about: (Huffington Post article).
They are in control, and responsible for where things are heading.

My reply to DR:

The Kochs have as much free speech available to them as you or me. But they want more. In fact, they want to reshape the United States into their distoted view of a plutocrats' Utopia. And they're trying to do it by using their vast wealth to disseminate falsehoods, distortions, and promote divisiveness and its resultant hate. Don't we aleady have an overabundance of ignorance and hate in this country?.

The Kochs' politician friends have already helped them beat charges of massive theft, thanks to Republican senators coming to their rescue. Tell me YOU would get that same form of justice if you stole a loaf of bread. Can you naively believe they won't expect that same sort of quid pro quo from the politicians they are now funding?

As for rich Democrats, well, that's not news. Politicians routinely drive to D.C. the first time in a 12-year-old beat-up pickup truck. 20 years later, they fly back home in a private jet. That's the way politics works: Payola. And if you think Democrats are "in control", you are not paying attention. (Government shutdown, Proration, cuts to food stamps, not renewing extended unemployment benefits, state Republican politicians refusing to expand Medicaid, refusal to approve Presidential appointments, filibusters, Obama extending some tax cuts for the rich, etc.) As for me, I consider both major political parties corrupt and believe we need viable third parties.

And, DR, the Kochs are a major part of the problem. There needs to be some sunlight shone on them, because people need to know what they (and their fellow plutocrat chums) are doing. We do not need any more of an oligarchy than already exists.


From GR:

this is a most informative web site, and i will find it useful in my small effort to effectively boycott all things to do with Koch brothers profit. I will appreciate all information you can provide through this web site. thank you so much.

Just curious.

[Publisher's comment: Craig demonstrates how the politicians and Kochs have successfully used hate and propaganda to divide us. Actualy, Craig, I'm not a fan of Obamacare. We should have single payer coverage. And there's this. BTW, do you suppose the Kochs have EVER spent time waiting in a doctor's office or worried about going bankrupt because of sky-high medical costs? Nah. BTW, I hope you signed the petition.]

Well, Linda, I have no idea why you say that. I view Trayvon Martin's murder as criminal. We can thank ALEC (funded and supported by the Kochs) for Florida's "stand your ground" law, the nature of which was included in instructions to the jurors and which the jurors considered as part of their deliberations.

Please direct your outrage at ALEC.

From Caroline:

Please, please get the word out that the Koch Bros/Tea Party's agenda is becoming more suspect every day.  To destroy our government's economy as well as the world's for you own personal gain, and eventualy causing deaths, is somehow illegal, it seems to me.  Destroying the middle and ower classes could border on genocide, if you check the legal definitions of genocide.  That is not stretching facts at all.  They are dangerous!


From G:

The Koch brothers are a danger to our democracy... they think their money can buy this country & they are a pair of evil fascist oligarcs.  They should be in jail for conspiring to destoy this country... like the movie "Citizen Kane", where people were viewed as "ants", I'm sure that's how the Koch brothers see the 99%.  I'm sick of their "organized crime" & they are no better than the mob.


From W:

More Koch-funded groups:
MIT, Lincoln Center, Smithsonian, Sloan Kettering, Museum of Natural History

[Indeed, and we discuss that here]


 

Occasionally we receive an email from a bubble dweller. It's usually simply, "Thanks for letting me know what products to buy". Never any reason, or rationale. It's simply an effort to poke -- a common occurrance from right-wing borg.

If you're a bubble dweller,you really SHOULD spend some time at this site familiarizing yourself with the Kochs. They don't care about you. They won't buy you a new pickup truck (unless, perhaps, you run for office as a Republican), and they have nothing to offer this country. Try to get past your master/serf mentality.

[astro] turf wars (documentary)
 


George Carlin Explains How It Works:




 The Kochs:

A Rich Family of Right-Wing Extremists:
Charles and David's father, Fred C. Koch, was a co-founder of the John Birch Society. He gave a speech in 1963 warning of “a takeover” of America in which Communists would “infiltrate the highest offices of government in the U.S. until the president is a Communist, unknown to the rest of us.

Rich Puppet Masters:
During the 2008 elections, Koch Industries contributed over $1.8 million, 88% to Republican candidates. To further their libertarian beliefs in limited government and a free market, they have supported the Tea Party, in fact "The Koch brothers gave the money that founded it", and they are "trying to shape and control and channel the populist uprising into their own policies." David Koch has praised the Tea Party for demonstrating the “powerful visceral hostility in the body politic against the massive increase in government power, the massive efforts to socialize this country. (source)
  


From the Jane Mayer article in
The New Yorker, "Covert Operations":

Five hundred people attended the summit, which served, in part, as a training session for Tea Party activists in Texas. An advertisement cast the event as a populist uprising against vested corporate power. “Today, the voices of average Americans are being drowned out by lobbyists and special interests,” it said. “But you can do something about it.” The pitch made no mention of its corporate funders. The White House has expressed frustration that such sponsors have largely eluded public notice. David Axelrod, Obama’s senior adviser, said, “What they don’t say is that, in part, this is a grassroots citizens’ movement brought to you by a bunch of oil billionaires.”    The New Yorker


A Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy:



Hillary Clinton was ridiculed when she
uttered those words during the
Clinton administration.

She was right.
Just take a look at:

Koch-funded groups

Other right-wing groups

They coordinate. They "repeat the message".
They act as a bullhorn to relentlessly
promote their right-wing agenda.

They serve to hide the identity
of big-money donors.

Repeat a lie often enough,
and it becomes the accepted truth.
