Conservative power brokers say no to Trump
the saga






Conservative billionaire power broker Charles Koch said Monday he is not backing Donald Trump, claiming the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's principles are "antithetical" to his. In an interview at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference in Aspen, Colorado, Koch spoke about Trump and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, saying: "I see two people that as of this point we're not supporting." [FULL]

“(On Thursday, a spokesman for the Koch-funded political arm Freedom Partners sought to clarify their position, indicating it was unlikely the Kochs would support Clinton. Her “big-government” policies, the spokesman said, were out-of-step with their goals. (Politico)

WHAT"S GOING ON?

During the past five congressional campaigns (2006-14) Koch money went to President Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Dianne Feinstein, Mark Pryor, Chuck Schumer and other members of Congress. [Source]

The Koch brothers are the Democrats’ public enemy No. 1. But there was a time not too long ago that billionaires Charles and David Koch were modest Democratic Party donors.

Though the Kochs have poured untold millions into conservative and libertarian causes over the years, the political action committee for their privately held Koch Industries also has given money through the years to Democratic causes and candidates — including Mark Pryor, Mary Landrieu and Chuck Schumer — as part of the influence-peddling game that many corporations and wealthy donors play.  [Source]

 OpenSecrets.org tallied the top donors in federal elections between 1989 and 2014. Koch Industries -- privately owned by the Evil Koch Bros -- is on the list, to be sure, but doesn't appear until the 59th slot, with $18 million in donations, 90 percent of which went to Republicans. So who occupies the 58 spots ahead of the Evil Koch Bros?

  •  Six of the top 10 are ... wait for it ... unions. They gave more than $278 million, with most of it going to Democrats. [Source]
The Koch Bros. were made Boogie Man #1  by  DEM leaders.  Harry Reid once mentioned them  at least 134 times on the senate floor, while  at the same time taking big money from them.  Like every thing else about Big Gummint, it's a all con.

Finally, how galling must it be for them that someone they've likely been at financial loggerheads with is about to become king? Human nature. Maybe that's it.  Like when your neighbor buys a Lexus' LFA.

I think they'll come to their senses.
