The Koch Brothers were once considered some of the most powerful interests behind the Republican Party, but that is changing because President Donald Trump is not for sale. They are planning to put their considerable resources behind Democratic contenders in 2020.
The Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is revamping its operation for next year’s election cycle, prioritizing amnesty for illegals, opposition to tariffs, and support for open borders above all else.
“We expect policymakers to unite people and build coalitions. We’re committed to forging a new way forward with political discourse,” said Emily Seidel, CEO of Americans for Prosperity. “We’re excited for how this new approach will help policymakers work together.”
Instead of Republican victory, the Koch network is now focused on a plan to “elevate civil discourse” which, of course, means returning to the status quo before Trump started regularly calling out the Washington D.C. swamp with gusto.
“If candidates engage in personal, ad hominem attacks and other divisive tactics during their election, it makes it difficult for them to work productively with others after the election,” Seidel wrote in a recent memo to AFP staff and activists.
“One of the biggest challenges to this approach is that those who work to lead nonpartisan coalitions are threatened by people in both parties who prize partisanship over policy outcomes. This makes it difficult for policymakers who want to do what’s best for the country to stick their necks out,” she added.
AFP plans to start the following PACs in upcoming weeks: Uniting for Economic Opportunity, Uniting for Free Expression, Uniting for Free Trade, and Uniting for Immigration Reform. These entities will directly challenge Trump’s ‘America First’ mandate, and make it harder for him to win re-election in 2020.
The Koch network had previously announced in January that it intends to provide no support for Trump’s re-election campaign next year.
Trump hammered the oligarchs for their lack of national pride and loyalty last year in a series of brutal tweets.
The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade. I never sought their support because I don’t need their money or bad ideas. They love my Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judicial picks & more. I made…..

….them richer. Their network is highly overrated, I have beaten them at every turn. They want to protect their companies outside the U.S. from being taxed, I’m for America First & the American Worker – a puppet for no one. Two nice guys with bad ideas. Make America Great Again!

The Koch network’s pull-out may do little to stop the Trump train in 2020 though, as their influence is rapidly waning.
Koch functionaries supported then-Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) with digital advertisements after she voted for deregulation during her re-election campaign last year, and then refused to endorse or support her opponent then-Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) heading into the election.
Cramer won in 2018 despite the Koch influence, and is now a pro-Trump Senator from North Dakota. In the age of Trump, the Kochs are no longer political king-makers, and they have now exposed themselves publicly as globalists who are willing to sell out America for an extra buck.

Joe Rogan Takes Joe Biden To Task: “Trump Will Eat Him Alive”
“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he’s talking.”
Joe Rogan took presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden to task on his podcast Friday, calling out Democrats for refusing to admit that Biden appears to be cognitively challenged and lacking mental acuity.
Biden expressed exasperation with leading Democrats for refusing to consider that the 77-year old former Vice President might not be at his mental prime.
“You have to be able to call out s*** that’s wrong on your side. That’s the problem the Democratic Party is having right now with that Joe Biden guy. You guys have to be able to call it out. You can’t let this slide, because everybody else sees it, and Trump is going to eat him alive.”
Rogan had earlier pointed to Biden’s tendency towards serial gaffes as a disqualifier for the presidency, expressing his view that Biden’s cognitive decline was obvious and visible.
“He stumbles through s***, he forgets what he’s talking about… The guy can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking.”
Joe Biden has claimed that he’s running for the Senate instead of the presidency, confused his wife with his sister during a Super Tuesday victory speech, and stated that 150 million Americans have died of gun violence in the past two decades.
Watch the candid segment of the Joe Rogan Experience here:
Ironically, while Rogan’s primary audience appears to be younger conservative men, the longtime MMA announcer leans to the left of the political spectrum and endorsed Bernie Sanders last year.
Establishment Democrats have sought to shut down discussion of Biden’s mental state, likening serious questions as to the prospect of the former Vice President’s potential cognitive decline to be “disinformation campaigns.”
Should they prove unable to simply silence questions as to the party elder’s acuity, they’ll have no one to blame but themselves.
