Inside the Kochtopus Hour 3 (conclusion)

It’s on between the Koch Brothers and the Obama Administration. You might have seen Ted Olson on TV after the California Prop 8 anti-gay marriage federal court ruling last week. You probably didn’t see his op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, whining about how mean the Obama Administration was being to those wonderful Koch brothers, and noting that he was now a paid legal counsel FOR the Kochs:

This is why it is exceedingly important for all Americans to respond with outrage to what the president and his allies are doing to demonize and stigmatize David and Charles Koch. They have been the targets of the multiyear, carefully orchestrated campaign of vituperation and assault described above—and much more. It has been choreographed from the very top.

Those poor, ex-criminal billionaires. How misunderstand are they. Here’s the tag and the headline from Rupert’s Wall Street Journal

Mr. Olson, a lawyer in Washington, D.C., and a former solicitor general of the United States, represents Koch Industries.

Today, I misunderstand them some more in Hour Three, which brings us up to date on what they’ve been up to.

Inside the Kochtopus
Hour 3 

Note, I have removed the commercials, re-engineered the sound back into stereo, upsampled, EQ’ed, filtered and downsampled, to clean up the quality as best I can.

And, for those of you who insist on listening to presentations in sequential order:

There’s a startling new development in this story, which I’ll tell you about presently.

Thanks again to my friend Melinda Pillsbury-Foster and her show, Reclaim America NOW

Courage.

  1. You’re a liar and a hypocrite and a bad person. Right now, you support the President of the United States attacking publically and politically individual soverign citizens of the United States because you don’t like those people, and by doing so establish and support the President’s ability to do this. But in future years, when the President turns on people who you like, or who you support, or perhaps when the President of the United States goes on TV and tells everyone that you personally are a bad guy and should be treated as stuff, you will howl ‘unfair’ and ‘wrong’ then- except there will be no one to save you.

    You’re the same sort of person who let the fascists murder Jews and innocent people in Germany because they were political enemies of yours- you are the same sort of person who did nothing in the Soviet Union while Ukranians and liberals were killed because you thought they were really bad people.

    I’ve got your back, for what’s it worth, and the minute a Republican or conservative President turns on individual citizens and uses the office and the power of the office to attack individual soverign citizens of our nation, I’ll help you out. I do this not because you are a good and decent person who deserves that, but because I am a good and decent person.

    • I don’t know you, sir, nor, being a bad person, should my amateur pharmacological opinion carry much weight, but, perhaps you’d feel better if you went back on the meds you’ve clearly stopped taking.

      I base my work in cold, hard facts. Not in mere opinionating.

    • In other words, the POTUS must never state a disagreement with any individual no matter the criminality of and in this case the enormous scale of their actions, even if they use their overwhelming clout to subvert the democratic process lest a righteoius defender of those persons decides that, through itself, amounts to Nazism. Let alone the reality that what the Kochs do is completely aligned with the agenda of actual fascism.

      You’re a teacher are you? I rather doubt it. You’re an extremist rather than a person seeking to conserve any system such as we enjoy here in the US as well.

      • Thanks, Jan. But I think the “Conservative Teacher,” has tuned out. He’s agin’ Big Government, and being defrauded of his tax dollars by them evil bureaucrats and their regulations, but he left his comment using the (taxpayer funded and owned) Oakland Schools (White Lake, Michigan) server. You don’t suppose that there is anything that contravenes state policy on such a use of the school district’s resources to call people “You’re the same sort of person who let the fascists murder Jews and innocent people in Germany because they were political enemies of yours- you are the same sort of person who did nothing in the Soviet Union while Ukranians and liberals were killed because you thought they were really bad people,” do you?

        I mean, aside from the hypocrisy issue, which causes the accuser no loss of sleep, evidently.

        Glad to know that Michigan k12.mi.us is so flush that it can afford to subsidize hate speech. Quite the stunning economic turnaround for Michigan, I guess.

    Wow Hart, you sure attract some total rightwing whackjobs. Thanks for your work in exposing these imperialist bastards and their work to take over the US, and more if they can get it.

    The Koch’s have become one of the greatest threats to our democracy. Their money gives them almost absolute power and they use it to gain more. Their purpose is to apply more and more power to break up of unions (the only organized group that supports the middle class). No unions, no more middle class. I fully support Obama in anything he can do to oppose the criminal Kochs.

    • Thank you, Jim, but Obama is not the sole knight on the chessboard, and it’s finally up to “We the People” to rein in these self-anointed overlords and their strange notions of “liberty.”

      Just passing information from credible sources along is a good start.

    As usual, you remove the BS from talking about these guys and show them for what they are. That’s appreciated. This is without a doubt THEE most informative blog on the internet….you really know your stuff. thanks for putting it out there.

  5. Wild Bill

    Hart, you deserve a medal for your patriotism, and a giant thank you for all of the effort and research you’ve put in exposing these vipers and their running dogs who seem to absolutely hate democracy. I’ve been forwarding many of your posts about these guys to others around the country who have very little time to spend looking for real news. Working 2 or 3 jobs will do that to you these days. I’ve never found an inaccurate statement in any of your posts, except as a joke, and you even point that out so that there is no mistake. I call that a very high ethical standard. Thanks.

    • Thank you, sincerely, Wild Bill, for that testimonial. I don’t have the legal department, the fact-checkers or the editorial board, so I have to rely on being scrupulous.

  8. Sigh… when I read this I thought maybe they were going to be doing hard time in prison, as they ought to, not that they were simply whining “the President said mean things about us, waaah!”

    I should know better than to get my hopes up, but I won’t give up my dream. Which is of Charles and David Koch under permanent lockdown in one of our nation’s SuperMax prisons.
