Koch Brothers: We Will Help Democrats in 2018

Published

on

Billionaire donor Charles Koch’s network of politically oriented nonprofit groups is looking to partner with Democrats going into the 2018 midterm elections.

Americans For Prosperity CEO Emily Seidel said at the Koch Brothers’ Colorado Springs conference that working with Democrats will be a priority for the billionaire backers’ efforts ahead of the November midterms.

CNBC reports: “I know this is uncomfortable,” Seidel told a group of donors and at least two GOP lawmakers who were sitting in the crowd. Koch network officials estimate there are approximately 500 donors attending this year’s conference. “If you are a Democrat and stand up to [Senator] Elizabeth Warren to corral enough votes for financial reform that breaks barriers for community banks and families, you’re darn right we will work with you.'”

The mainstream media for years since the Citizens United decision presented the Koch Brothers as the puppet masters of the Republican Party, which has been a largely accurate characterization during the era of Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. But the Koch Brothers are now making it clear that their agenda is not simply the Republican agenda, and it’s certainly not Trump’s agenda. The globalist brothers are staunchly opposed to protectionist trade policies — like the kind that compelled the European Union to finally make a deal with Trump to buy more American soy beans and other produce.

Big League Politics reported:

The Koch Brothers’ political bank Freedom Partners is working against President Donald Trump’s tariffs with an ad “targeted to attendees of the May 15 United States Trade Representative (USTR) meeting to hear public comments regarding new tariffs on a wide array of goods imported from China.”

Freedom Partners is trying to whip up backlash to the tariffs in order to hurt Trump’s policymaking potential, and it underscores how the traditional boogey-men of the media are actually part of the Resistance, too. When the entire Republican Establishment and Mitt Romney went hard against Trump, the Republican Party changed.

Now, NeverTrumpers are split between pretending to be Trump supporters and going along with it until they can get Nikki Haley or Mike Pence into office, or they’re just bitter and angry somewhere.

The Libertarian world is in turmoil right now because Trump supporters have been getting purged in favor of strictly establishment voices and progressives.

On April 19, The Cato Institute vice president of research Brink Lindsey tweeted his dislike for former congressman Ron Paul for his “hideous corruption of libertarian ideas.” Accusing the most important member of the Libertarian movement of spreading ideas that “[put] his movement in the Trumpism family tree,” the Cato scholar accused both the president and the former presidential candidate of being xenophobic…

Goldman Sachs Claims Forcing Americans to Wear Masks Would Save U.S. Economy $1 Trillion

Multinational corporations want Americans to submit to the virus regime.

Published

on

Corporate titan Goldman Sachs has produced research that contends the U.S. economy would save five percent of GDP, or $1 trillion, due to a national mask mandate using federal force to make people wear masks.

“If a face mask mandate meaningfully lowers coronavirus infections, it could be valuable not only from a public health perspective but also from an economic perspective because it could substitute for renewed lockdowns that would otherwise hit GDP,” the researchers wrote.

Goldman’s analysts claim that forcing people to wear masks at the federal level would impact states like Florida and Texas, where masks are not mandatory, and “meaningfully” increase mask usage nationwide. Even though the mandate would be grossly unconstitutional, Goldman apparently believes that the ends justify the means.

They estimate that a mask mandate would increase mask usage overall by 15 percent and cut the daily growth of new coronavirus cases by between .6% and 1%. Goldman is fueling the false dichotomy where the public must to accept either a strict mask mandate or a Draconian shutdown of society. They claim that the next lockdown would take an additional $1 trillion out of the economy.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is attempting to unseat President Trump in November, has stated that he would use federal power to force Americans to wear masks.

“Yes, I would—from an executive standpoint, yes, I would . . . I would do everything possible to make it a requirement that people had to wear masks in public,” Biden mumbled last week.

The stage has been set for round two of the coronavirus panic to cripple society, even though the establishment has been encouraging Black Lives Matter pogroms against white people simultaneously.

Big League Politics has reported on the so-called experts as they have kept the fear propaganda going despite the immense hypocrisy:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are continuing their fear-mongering about the coronavirus pandemic, desperately trying to dissuade Americans from living their lives.

“Right now, communities are experiencing different levels of transmission occurring, as they gradually ease up onto the community mitigation efforts and gradually reopen,” the CDC’s deputy director for infectious diseases, Jay Butler, said to reporters during a press briefing on Friday.

“If cases begin to go up again, particularly if they go up dramatically, it’s important to recognize that more mitigation efforts such as what were implemented back in March may be needed again,” he added.

Butler emphasized that the “pandemic is not over” and urged localities to re-institute Draconian shutdown policies based on “what is happening within the community regarding disease transmission.”

The CDC has displayed an extreme amount of incompetence throughout the pandemic, which has destroyed their credibility and made them into a national laughingstock.

The establishment will never allow normalcy to return. The Orwellian nightmare, enabled by COVID-19 hysteria, is here to stay.
