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."

“(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)

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] 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?

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.

  1. Trump: Fundraising so good 'can barely keep up', rejects Koch brothers' support 
  2. Billionaire Republican donors urge Kochs to back Trump

If I don't like it, it's a hate crime

In a section of the complaint titled “Evidence of Racial Animus,” the federal agent also noted that Butler has “numerous tattoos indicative of white supremacy, including ... a Confederate flag.”

By that standard gang bangers

tats that require killing for initiation.* Res ipsa loquitur

At a higher level, Liberals effectively struck the First Amendment right to free speech when they discovered "Hate Crime" legislation.  Click-Click

                           Microsoft, you utter berk            

My conversion from WIN 8 went swimmingly,  and I quite like WIN 10.  MoSup's conversion from WIN 7 was another matter.  After hours 2 days of continual effort, we got the Blue message.  Not only that, but when tracking an error code on the web I was suckered into a Microsoft clone that installed itself on her computer.  That took hours to undo.  The end shot is that last night I said fk-it it and bought her a new laptop.  How prescient that. 

This morning when I booted her  up,  the screen was all jiggly. The message "Windows has stopped working.  Please reboot.
"  When I rebooted the thing said it had to do a disk check.  That's the last thing the old girl ever said.  DEAD as a door nail, thank you very much. So there's that.  Since yesterday was, supposedly, the last day to get the free 10, this will be of no use to anyone.  After 25years of of using Windows, I know when I'm beat.

Wikileaks Documents:Decoding ENIGMA

Democrat Party Culture of Corruption
The New Evidence

“The intimate relationship between the Democratic Party and the media isn’t just a conspiracy theory dreamed up by paranoid conservatives. Turns out, there’s more bias in some newsrooms than there is at a Lois Lerner auditing party.

Wikileaks Documents

Just a few days before the convention Julian Assange’s Wikileaks released over 20,000 emails hacked from the DNC. From the publically exposed internal emails what many of us have suspected was verified, that the DNC colludes with the mainstream media on their reporting.

As one source described the collusion, “The intimate relationship between the Democratic Party and the media isn’t just a conspiracy theory dreamed up by paranoid conservatives. Turns out, there’s more bias in some newsrooms than there is at a Lois Lerner auditing party.
  • ... cameras captured CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer and Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger drinking wine and dancing with delegates as “Sweet Caroline” played over the loud speakers at the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention.[src]
    From reporters giving party officials a chance to edit or comment on their stories to outright dictating what questions Democratic officials will be asked on air, the collusion uncovered in the pages of messages is astounding — even for the most cynical media critic.”
  • Another dubious practice with the mainstream media was also revealed. Over 15 specific recent examples were exposed of mainstream media “draft sharing” their stories before publication. Draft sharing is a practice of sharing the drafts of stories with sources before the stories are published.
  • Another media analyst made the observation, “The Left must know that it can’t win the war of ideas on a level playing field, so it resorts to lying, slander, and outright distortion — in many cases, with the liberal media’s help. Of course, the people most hurt by the press’s bias aren’t conservatives — they’re the American people, who never really get to know the truth about their candidates.”
  • The DNC emails also prove how they take for granted the Hispanic and the black vote. Multiple emails from DNC staffers referred to the “buckets” of voters, based on race. They further prove how they take those voters for granted by claiming that they are the most “brand-loyal” voters for the party.
  • Equally disturbing was the pejorative way they are sometimes referenced by the DNC. One staff member, and Obama campaign veteran, Rebecca Christopher, referred to their courtship of Hispanic voters as “taco bowl outreach.”
  • As if to not let Jewish voters feel left out, on the first day of the convention, Congressman Hank Johnson (D-GA), compared Israeli settlers on the West Bank to “termites.”
[...]The Hillary Victory Fund has been linked to buying the support of superdelegates as the Clinton campaign gets to decide where and how much money goes to state Democratic Parties.”

I'm thinking of wikileaks in terms of them being today's cracking of the Nazi ENIGMA code.  Without that knowledgecertainly a much prolonged way with corresponing deaths.  Maybe even defeat.
