Convicted Terrorist to Protest Mitt Romney
A convicted terrorist is leading liberal groups to protest Mitt Romney and the Kochs. That’s right, there’s a fundraiser for Mitt Romney that the Kochs are in. So the liberals are rallying. They’re rallying with a convicted terrorist, Andy Stepanian, His claim to fame is being characterized as succeeding “where Karl Marx, the Baader-Meinhof gang and the Red Brigades failed.” He’s quite proud of it. | Read More »
The Second Coming of American Liberal Fascism?
During the Bush years, Bush was often compared to Hitler or Mussolini,. The focus of the attacks had to do with wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and angst over the supposed erosion of civil liberties due to warrantless wiretaps, among other things. There was a lot of hyperbole. Bush was a monkey, a Nazi, a Fascist, the devil’s spawn. The hyperbole became so hysterical some | Read More »

MSNBC’s Karen Finney Says the Koch Brothers Killed Trayvon Martin
Trayvon Martin‘s death in Florida is a terrible tragedy made even worse by a police department that seemingly bungled the investigation. There are multiple eyewitnesses, some who saw the shooter, George Zimmerman, yelling for help. Others saw Trayvon Martin yelling for help. It shouldn’t be a partisan issue. But MSNBC decided to make it one. According to Karen Finney on MSNBC, the Koch Brothers, NRA, | Read More »
Libertarian Ed Crane Decides to Act Like a Liberal. Will It Destroy the Cato Institute?
“Suffice it to say, Ed Crane has no legal argument. Instead, he is doing what the left does — resort to trial by media and whine.” A friend of mine asked me last week why I hadn’t written about the Cato Institute lawsuit business with the Koch Brothers. I told him I hadn’t seen it pulsing up anywhere, so why should I give it any | Read More »
If You Use Georgia Pacific Paper Products, Barack Obama Wants You To Turn Yourself In
Georgia-Pacific makes a lot of household paper products. Quilted Northern toilet paper, Angel Soft toilet paper, Brawny paper towels, Dixie cups, Vanity Fair napkins, etc. If you use any of them, Barack Obama wants you to report yourself to the government. No, I’m not making this up. On twitter last night, whoever the idiot is who runs the President’s twitter feed (I assume it is | Read More »
Occupy DC: Corporate-funded, corporate-controlled, corporate-aimed.
This ABC News article is correct enough, as it goes: On the surface, the “Occupy the Koches: Guerilla Drive-In” event looked like any other “Occupy” movement protest against the proverbial 1 percent of the population who hold the nation’s wealth. But a confederation of long-established progressive political advocacy groups — the Campaign for America’s Future, Campaign for Community Change, Common Cause, Health Care for America | Read More »
Today’s Bloomberg’s Two-Minute Hate: The Koch Brothers!
To give you an idea of just how laughably bad this Bloomberg hit piece (short version: the Koch Brothers are icky small-government people who have this big corporation that doesn’t give money to causes that the authors like is a evil lobbying corporation and here’s a list of bad things that they’ve done, including selling stuff to IranIranIranIRANIRANIRAN) was: not only did the notoriously neoconservative* | Read More »
DSCC chair Patty Murray tries to get her some Koch campaign cash.
I can almost understand why DSCC chair Sen. Patty Murray would try to hit up the Koch Companies for ‘five figures’ (read: the maximum allowed by federal election campaign finance law). First off, Sen. Murray is not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer (she’d almost have to be, given that Murray actually left a voice message as well as sent a letter*). Second, what’s | Read More »
This Needs To Be Edited Into A TV Ad
The Charles Koch Foundation has come up with a web ad on economic freedom. It is an important message. I cannot stress enough that you need to watch this. It is only 2 minutes. But more importantly, the Koch Foundation needs to turn this into a 1 minute television advertisement. It’ll require some work to do, but this is a message that needs to get | Read More »
George Soros Gives Little Lee Fang His Comeuppance
One of the most genuinely stupid and embarrassing things to ever appear at Think Progress — and that’s saying something — was a recent supposed takedown of the evil Koch Brothers by their supposedly nemesis, Little Lee Fang the ankle biting blogger. Little Lee Fang tried to make a mountain out of something sinister called contango, a concept about which he clearly knew nothing and | Read More »
ThinkProgress and Lee Fang vs the Evil Koch Brothers
While I claim no expertise, I do have a general understanding of how the oil market works, which is more than can be said for ThinkProgress “investigative journalist” Lee Fang. A series of articles (notably here and here) has convinced the so-called Progressive community that Fang has blown the lid off a Koch Brothers conspiracy to control oil markets via speculation. For Mr. Fang, the | Read More »
The Inevitable Koch Brothers Soviet Disco Madness! Open Thread.
Not much to say about this one, except: yup, this is exactly how all those duckspeakers freaking out over the Koch Brothers sound. And look. And act, except that the people in the video are at least happy. Tells you a lot of about 1970s-era Soviet society, huh? Disco looked good to those poor people. Open thread.

Politico: Conservatives are pro-cancer!
Either that, or Politico hires some pretty sloppy writers. Personally, I’m voting for the latter. The background: Politico decided to write an article that attempts to answer the eternal question, For just how long will George Soros keep throwing money down the rathole which is the Activist Left*? It’s an interesting question in its own right – the article suggests that Soros is getting pretty | Read More »
The Left’s Common Cause: “Lynch Clarence Thomas!”
Normally, there would be a temptation to get into the guts of this Big Government video showing Lefty and Democratic protesters at an anti-Koch brothers rally. For those who aren’t aware, the Koch brothers are the latest Two-Minute Hate object of choice among the netroots, who hate them for… giving money to conservative causes, apparently. Actually, I’m being kind: the netroots hate because the alternative | Read More »
