The Koch Brothers Confidential Donor List

koch brothers exposedNo doubt people were fired because of this leak showing the names of donors who had one on one meetings with the Greedy Lying Bastards themselves: Charles and David Koch, the billionaire brothers behind the Tea Party. Mother Jones has published the list for all to see:

There’s one main rule at the conservative donor conclaves held twice a year by Charles and David Koch at luxury resorts: What happens there stays there.

The billionaire industrialists and their political operatives strive to ensure the anonymity of the wealthy conservatives who fund their sprawling political operation—which funneled more than $400 million into the 2012 elections—and to keep their plans private. Attendees of these summits are warned that the seminars, where the Kochs and their allies hatch strategies for electing Republicans and advancing conservative initiatives on the state and national levels, are strictly confidential; they are cautioned to keep a close eye on their meeting notes and materials. But last week, following the Kochs’ first donor gathering of 2014, one attendee left behind a sensitive document at the Renaissance Esmeralda resort outside of Palm Springs, California, where the Kochs and their comrades had spent three days focused on winning the 2014 midterm elections and more. The document lists VIP donors—including John Schnatter, the founder of the Papa John’s pizza chain—who were scheduled for one-on-one meetings with representatives of the political, corporate, and philanthropic wings of Kochworld. The one-page document, provided to Mother Jones by a hotel guest who discovered it, offers a fascinating glimpse into the Kochs’ political machine and shows how closely intertwined it is with Koch Industries, their $115 billion conglomerate…

    I refuse to order from Papa John’s.

    also, behold!

    • emperorreagan

      Me too, primarily because it’s shitty pizza though. The owner’s politics just makes me feel better about the decision.

      • echar

        Great minds!

      • Dingbert

        You cannot make good pizza if your name ends in a consonant.

    what?!?!?!?!
    rich oligarchs are conspiring to control things
    I woulda neva thunk it
    and the Cock bros involved too
    shocking is all I can say

    • InfvoCuernos

      Never pass up an opportunity to make a dick joke.

  • lilbear68

    unfortunately the soros group never left a list of their co-conspiritors laying around to do a comparison check

    • Jin The Ninja

      what does soros ‘fund’ exactly? the DNC- the oligarchs? or moveon.org the dems shill foundation? this isn’t news.

      and he isn’t exactly spreading anarchism and syndicalist propaganda to the masses.

      take this one on the chin like a big boy. the tea party is a weapon of mass distraction, making damn sure you vote republican, and forward the agenda of oligarchs everywhere.

      • lilbear68

        its 2 sides of the same coin ya tard
        its dueling money for control but I guess some are just too dim to comprehend that 2 billionaires sides want to control the govt and they are doing just that.
        the Koch’s found out that they couldn’t buy the 2012 election it will even out tho
        pull out the koolaid enema tube and understand the congress is owned by the billionairs/wall street banksters, the dems are on their knees to them and the reps are bent over grabbing their ankles for the same group and periodically they switch positions. the lamestream media is the mouthpiece for these hacks. that is todays reality
        this dem, rep, tea party is just for the nitwits that are too dim to comprehend the real scale of whats going on

        • Jin The Ninja

          if i refer to the dems as oligarchs, how am i positing a difference in agenda? don’t call people ‘dim’ until you yourself learn to read properly.

          • lilbear68

            simple dodge but maybe I should have just said dumb rather than dim.
            missing the entire point of the post meaning that there is no difference between either side
            it always surprises me with the internet where a person can choose to be who ever/what ever they want that so many choose to be stupid

          • American Cannibal

            (don’t waste your time on this one)

            Also what’s up with their uneven format? It’s like they’ve copy and pasted.

            Perhaps I will begin to view them this way.
