I Say “Limited Government,” They Hear “Anti-Government”

I do not consider the libertarian or true conservative movement to be inherently anti-government. But according to a growing number of “progressives,” anyone who seeks to limit the federal government’s regulations and interventions is automatically “anti-government.” You’ll notice that any gridlock in Congress is considered an evil: Democrats will accuse Constitutionalists of “keeping the government from functioning.” I noticed this recently in an article on a biography of moneyed Read more […]

Surprise: Rich Donors Leaned Democrat in the Midterms

Well, the data is in, and it is clear yet again: the really rich donors leaned Democrat this midterm election. With all the propaganda pouring out of the mills about Republican Super PACs, and Citizens United, and the Koch brothers, and GOP cronyism, and blah blah blah, you would think that the only supporters of the Democrats were grassroots donors and individuals in the poor and middle class. Nope. Other way around, it seems: The two biggest super PACs of 2014? Senate Majority PAC and House Majority Read more […]

Pelosi Funneled $1 Billion Taxpayer Money to Radical Billionaire Environmentalist

Remember how Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has constantly criticized and attacked the Koch brothers for using their own money to help conservative Republican politics? Ethics charges were filed against Reid for his actions and statements concerning the Koch brothers. Obviously in Reid’s mind, it’s not okay for conservative brothers to use their own money to support Republican politics, but it is okay for a liberal Democrat to use taxpayer money to support Democratic politics. I’m speaking Read more […]

Why Do the Koch Brothers Care About Bus Rapid Transit?

Some laws don’t make a lot of sense to me. The Tennessee Senate passed a bill that would make bus rapid transit systems illegal in basically the only places in Tennessee where they are being proposed, including Nashville. It has recently come to light that the Tennessee branch of Americans for Prosperity (founded and funded by the Koch brothers) had a major hand in the bill’s creation and passage. But why? Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems are hybrid systems that combine the efficiency of rail Read more […]

Chuck Schumer Rails Against the “Evil” Koch Brothers but Gladly Takes Their Money

What happens when liberals in the media and political establishment find out that the CEO of a company donated $1,000 to a pro-marriage cause way back in 2008? The guy gets “exposed” for his bigoted, homophobic views and is forced to resign. What happens when a politician accepts money from the evil Koch brothers? Well, the media usually react the same way in “exposing” said politician for being a Koch addict/puppet. Unless of course the recipient of that Koch money happens to be a Read more […]

What Liberals Don’t Want You to Know About the “Evil” Koch Brothers

I am generally ambivalent toward the Koch brothers. I’m sure there are organizations and causes to which they’ve contributed that I would find objectionable. But in general, they’ve contributed to the tea party movement, a number of conservative and libertarian leaning think tanks, organizations and so forth. These are their own private contributions, so I don’t really care where or how much they decide to donate. It’s their business. But liberals seem to think they’re a part of this Read more […]
