Things don't always go better with Koch.

Congrats to the Koch brothers for "making it rain" in the upcoming elections. Those boys have lots of money and they know how to use it to shape the country to fit their own political ideology.


Hey, I am not mad at them, the supremes gave them a way to do it and they are taking advantage of the law. It's the American way: The man with the most money wins.

"WASHINGTON -- Democrats appear to be winning the fundraising race at nearly every turn in Senate contests and doing well enough at the House level this year. Their congressional party committees and super PACs are on record pace ahead of their Republican counterparts, while the majority of Democratic incumbents in key races boast a financial advantage over their opponents. And yet, it's still likely Democrats will be outspent by wide margins.


The reason can be summed up in three words: the Koch brothers.


The two billionaire industrialists, Charles and David Koch, and their dual networks of undisclosed donors and "dark money" nonprofits, have emerged as the largest independent political force on the Republican side. Already, groups linked to the Kochs have spent more than $25 million on television and radio in crucial 2014 House and  Senate races, according to Democratic media-buying sources. Other reports, which also count spending on digital advertising, show a total that is closer to $30 million." [Source]


Personally, I guess it's cool to spend tons of your own money on things you care about. But why aren't they open and up front about it ? Why all the "dark money"? It's as if they are ashamed to be identified with their money.


Anyway, I sure hope the money isn't going towards electing more folks like Susan Atanus into office. I mean that would be downright scary.


Susan, in case you were wondering, has some strange ideas about how the lord works.

"On Tuesday, Illinois Republicans opted to nominate Susanne Atanus as their party’s choice in the primary for that state’s 9th district by a margin of almost five percentage points. Earlier this year, Atanus drew attention by telling The Daily Herald newspaper that as a “God-first conservative Republican” she believes many of the plights of the last several decades, including droughts, tornadoes and diseases like autism and dementia are God’s punishment for gay marriage and legalized abortions.


“God controls the weather,” Atanus said definitively in January. “God is angry. We are provoking him with abortions. We are provoking him with same-sex marriage, gay rights, civil unions.”


Lord, I know that according to Susanne you are a right wing "conservative Republican", but please have mercy on us all.


I am glad that one of my favorite congressmen, John Lewis, can sing and dance to Happy by Pharrell. But with all that "dark money" out there helping to get wingnuts like Susanne Atanus elected to public office, I can guarantee you that he won't be happy much longer.

Why all the "dark money"?

Because nuts like you (and Granny) accuse them of being evil incarnate for donating to your political opponents.

In truth, they are 59th on the list of big donors, a list dominated by Democrat donors, including most billionaires.

Obama is the most funded candidate in history, and most of his money came from big donors.

You are on the side of Wall Street, Big Business, and the Super Rich.

The middle class can thank God for the Koch brothers.

----

Ha ha, yeah, Susan is kind of wacky.

No shout out for the passing of Democrat Fred Phelps? You know, the "God Hates Fags" guy? Yes, Democrat politician and anti-racism activist Fred Phelps is dead. Phelps' five runs in Democratic primaries peaked in 1992's Democratic U.S. Senate primary in Kansas at over 30% of the Democratic vote.

But before that, Phelps made his name as one of country's most prominent Civil Rights attorneys (like Whitey, only successful).

From Wikipedia:

The first notable cases were related to civil rights. "I systematically brought down the Jim Crow laws of this town," he claims. Phelps' daughter was quoted as saying, "We took on the Jim Crow establishment, and Kansas did not take that sitting down. They used to shoot our car windows out, screaming we were n***** lovers," and that the Phelps law firm made up one-third of the state's federal docket of civil rights cases.

Phelps took cases on behalf of African-American clients alleging racial discrimination by school systems, and a predominantly black American Legion post which had been raided by police, alleging racially based police abuse.

Phelps' law firm obtained settlements for some clients. Phelps also sued President Ronald Reagan over Reagan's appointment of a U.S. ambassador to the Vatican, alleging this violated separation of church and state. The case was dismissed by the U.S. district court. Phelps' law firm, staffed by himself and family members also represented non-white Kansans in discrimination actions against Kansas City Power and Light, Southwestern Bell, and the Topeka City Attorney, and represented two female professors alleging discrimination in Kansas universities.

In the 1980s, Phelps received awards from the Greater Kansas City Chapter of Blacks in Government and the Bonner Springs branch of the NAACP, for his work on behalf of black clients.


I would hope that you negroes could find it in your hearts to show a little appreciation at the passing of this great Kansas Democrat.

Field, "Personally, I guess it's cool to spend tons of your own money on things you care about. But why aren't they open and up front about it ? Why all the "dark money"? It's as if they are ashamed to be identified with their money."

Brother Field, I'm not that much into politics, but what is "dark money"? If it is what I think it is, it's Blacks contributing to the Republican cause.

So it stands to reason why those Whites want to cover-up that they are accepting Negro money. They can't afford to have Whites like Kinky Con and Bill find out that they have hand their little white hands out for rich Black donations. Whites are so two-faced....I know Granny will agree with me.

Brother Field, thanks for using the term "dark money" in your post. I have learned a new term. That's why I come to FN, to learn new things.

------------------------
Susan is correct. We need to put GOD-First in our lives because we are making a mess of everything without HIM.

FYI: GOD is Supreme and Sovereign. We should not be provoking our Creator by violating Divine Law...nothing but misery will come of that....droughts, earthquakes, tsunami, insects, and other things that will hurt us like dimentia and other diseases will plaque us. We must turn from our sinful ways or perish.

Amen, brother.

@ Whitey's Conspiracy:
When your career helping negroes get paid for failing tests and getting fired draws to a close, do you plan follow in the footsteps of fellow Democrat Fred Phelps in preaching to America about the evils of anal intercourse?

Like Brother Phelps, you could use the same deep shame and inner conflict that drives you to decry the Sin of Racism in others and pivot to decrying the Sin of Homoism in others.

I think it would be very liberating for you. And there's an opening right now.

Sleep on it.

"The Koch brothers are the poster boys for the top 1%. Their money and power fuel the growing inequality in America. They're among the most powerful, they're knocking down the working and the middle class and they're stomping on the poor people. The Koch family has been defining the lives of the ordinary, working Americans, under the radar, for more than 50 years. They inherited their wealth and their penchant for secrecy from their father Fred, who made his fortune in the oil business in the Soviet Union of the 1930's."

"Stalin himself brought Fred Koch into the Soviet Union for building pipelines and teaching them how to be oil engineers. Fred came back to the United States after taking money from the Soviets and used that money to start his own oil empire in the US, amassing some 200 million dollars. With his wealth and power he began to wage a systematic attack on the American values, including funding the John Birch Society. It's a far right, racist organization that sells communist conspiracies everywhere. They even accused President Dwight Eisenhower of being a Soviet spy."

"Fred Koch was against the civil rights movement, saying that it is communist threat and that the white children should not go to school with black children, because that would lead to mongrelization of the races. This is the climate that the two brothers, Charles and David, grew up in at home and then they inherited a big pile of money from daddy Fred, and then they put that into their own organization and they built it up to where it's now - a 100-billion-a-year enterprise.
Koch industries is the second largest privately held corporation in the country. They have holdings that range from oil and gas, to paper products, forestry, consumer goods, plastics and ranching. They have operations in 45 states. The most important thing is not that they have wealth, it's that they're using their wealth to ride roughshod over the American people." ~http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/koch-brothers-exposed/~~

george Soros spends more money on politics than both the Koch Brothers combined. He just indirectly caused the crisis in the Ukraine and our possible nuclear annihilation by Russia. His NGO's stirred that "revolution" up. His fingerprints are all over it. Indisputable.

"Dark money",indeed.

But you're worried about the 59th largest donors (combined) in the country?

Granny, you are wrong about the Koch Brothers. They are just trying to make America a better country.

"Fred Koch was against the civil rights movement, saying that it is communist threat and that the white children should not go to school with black children, because that would lead to mongrelization of the races..."

My dear Granny, 'mongreliztion of the races is exactly what happens when there is black and white interracial relationships and marriages. Obama has even used the word "mongrel" to describe himself and others with white blood.

I recognize that you live in East Oakland where 99% Blacks are uneducated and over 50% probably haven't finished high school, and have no interest in completing high school. Thank God these stats are as bad in the rest of the country.

Granny, do you understand the consequences of "mongrelization"? I mean, really?

You see, the Koch brothers are just trying to slow that process down. That doesn't make them bad or wrong, it just means they have a different opinion from you. Quite frankly, they know a lot more than you do. They are worth billions. But you are still in East Oakland.

I mean, there is no comparison. Money talks, bullshit walks. That is why I am leaving the Dems and joining the GOP. You should consider the same and try to get out of that hell hole in Oakland before it's too late.

Dark money is what YOU paid to suck a RODENT's penis and what your MOTHER paid with the change leftover to suck an AIDS patient's penis. Don't lie about it because it is so obvious because your daddy was half RODENT and snake and him and your mammy produce YOU a piece of RODENT, pedophile after birth. Now, that's dark money!

I'm pretty sure it's not that the Koch's are ashamed to be identified with their money. They probably have a swimming pool of money they dive into and roll around in, like Scrooge McDuck.

It's that the politicians receiving that money don't want to be associated with scumbags like the Kochs.

As for Susanne Atanus, that supremely loony broad doesn't have a snowball's chance in Illinois' 9th congressional district. This is yet another example of Republicans brilliantly shooting themselves in the nuts. Which I can only celebrate.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Dang, can you believe it? Does that mean that the Koch brother’s father was an undercover COMMUNIST fooling with Stalin, a traitor, and racist?

Oh Lawd, somebody please help me figure this out because I am so distraught over this discovery...snicker, snicker. I’m just an old woman, a concerned citizen who is deeply concerned about the welfare of our poor unfortunate and working class American citizens.

Lord knows I want everyone to enjoy joy, peace, and happiness. However, that is kind of hard to do when we have to deal with assholes like anonymous who take digs at dead family members and those Koch bothers trying to buy the government, so that they can dictate those communist values that they accuse the President of having.

Smart career move, Whitey. Hispanics are where it's at. You can pivot right along with the Democrat Party, as it embraces its new pet minority.

Mexicans will do the jobs blacks won't do. They don't commit near as much crime. Most importantly, they loves their socialism, aren't shy about collecting government assistance, and will vote reliably democrat.

All through Democrat controlled urban America, Mexicans are ethnically cleansing blacks from neighborhood after neighborhood, surrounding the newly gentrified white areas with a brown buffer zone.

Serendipity? Or urban planning? Whatever, change is a comin'.

Yes, blacks are on the way out. The question going forward will be what can brown do for you?

Eek!!! >42% of the children suspended from PRE-SCHOOL!! are African American!!!? And, the "suspension" rate goes higher; gets worse as students progress through elementary and middle school.
Observation of students' behaviors in an urban, i.e., "predominately black" public elementary/middle schools will suggest that this is NOT news; nor is it startling. The bulk of these behaviors can honestly be described as:
1. Threatening the safety of others.
2. Disruptive and interfering with the learning of others.
And, if you have ever visited a zoo; observed the behavior of the primates, well, you get the point...(Yeah, I said it).
And, I am pissed that "FakeNews", Bill O' has identified the source: Something integral/within black culture. I dunno; but methinks that embedded within black culture; and by definition, "Staying Black" means to be the opposite of any and every idea associated with "White/European" civilization (which I think is overrated).
BTW,(here, in the deep belly of the bible-belt beast, this same demographic group is too self-medicated and sedated with European Christianity to be of any consequence).
We, as a people, seem to be infected with the 3-headed disease of: Ignorance ... Greed ... Envy.
Willie Lynch's prophesy has come full circle again and again.
