The Koch-funded globalists at Reason Magazine have marched to the left in recent years to oppose President Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda within the GOP, and that is evident with their endorsement of former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro’s plan to reduce the penalties for illegal immigration to a slap on the wrist.
“The next President must start by reversing the cruel policies of the Trump administration — including the Muslim ban, wasteful spending on a pointless wall, and cuts to the refugee program — and ending the vile rhetoric that has scapegoated and vilified immigrants,” Castro wrote to unveil his ‘People First’ immigration policy which is a central tenet of his 2020 presidential candidacy.
“The truth is, immigrants seeking refuge in our country aren’t a threat to national security. Migration shouldn’t be a criminal justice issue. It’s time to end this draconian policy and return to treating immigration as a civil — not a criminal — issue,” added Castro, who served as the United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under former President Obama.
Punishing illegal immigrants in the same manner the state punishes jaywalkers appeals to the libertines at Reason, who are gushing over Castro’s plan to exacerbate the national emergency that is currently wreaking havoc at the US southern border.
“Such a move would allow federal courts to focus on prosecuting violent crimes that merit more attention, instead of diverting resources toward criminal trials for undocumented immigrants,” intern Billy Binion wrote at Reason’s Hit & Run blog.
The libertines at Reason also floated the idea of abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement so the US has little recourse but to surrender to third-world invaders.
“And while many Democratic leaders have rallied around abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Castro recommends cutting it in half,” Binion wrote. “Similar suggestions have drawn cries of outrage from Republicans, but the idea is hardly radical, considering that the agency has only been in existence for 16 years.”
“While Castro’s chances of securing the nomination are meek, his plan provides a sensible and stark contrast to the draconian policies currently in place,” Binion wrote to conclude his blog.
This is far from the first time that the Koch Brothers and their operatives have pushed Democratic Party politicians and initiatives. Their opposition of President Trump’s mission to secure the border caused much of their vast network to support Democrats during the 2018 mid-term elections.
Through their pro-illegal immigration LIBRE Initiative, the Koch network sent mailers to up to 100,000 homes in 2018 favoring far-left legislators such as Reps. Ben Ray Luján and Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico, Democratic Reps. Raul Ruiz and Pete Aguilar of California, and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware who supported amnesty for illegal invaders.
“Thank you Sen. Coons for supporting a permanent solution for Dreamers,” one Koch-funded mailer read. “More than 90% of Americans want protection for the Dreamers.”
President Trump is well-aware of the Koch’s subversive influence on the conservative movement:
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…..

The Koch Brothers have also announced that they will be sitting out the 2020 Presidential election, the biggest in our lifetime. It has become clear that ‘America First’ is not and never will be on the agenda of these swampy billionaire oligarchs.
FAKE NEWS DEBUNKED: ‘Zip Tie Guy’ at Capitol Protest Merely Picked up the Restraints From a Table
It was a mostly-peaceful protest by ANTIFA/BLM standards.
One insidious piece of fake news that circulated widely after the Jan. 6 siege on the U.S. Capitol is that there was a protester with zip ties who was among the individuals who dared to enter the holy grounds on that fateful day.
This was used by dishonest left-wing pundits and lying government officials to claim that the Trump supporters were engaged in an insurrection and a coup on Jan. 6.
Larry Brock, the retired Air Force officer who stormed the Senate chamber with zip ties, intended to "take hostages," a prosecutor said.
"He means to kidnap, restrain, perhaps try, perhaps execute members of the U.S. government." https://t.co/3fxCibQ6WA

A retired Air Force officer who was part of the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol last week carried plastic zip-tie handcuffs because he intended “to take hostages,” prosecutor says in a Texas court. https://t.co/Iy0E7jnsrm

However, it has since come out that there was not any individual who brought zip ties to the U.S. Capitol protest to kidnap federal officials.
After deceiving the public for weeks, prosecutors were forced to admit in court that a man seen with the alleged zip ties had actually taken plastic handcuffs from police. While this may be a crime, it shows that there was no harmful intent from the protesters, most of whom demonstrated peacefully in and around the U.S. Capitol.
Eric Munchel, a U.S. Capitol protester who has been maligned falsely as the ‘Zip Tie Guy,’ reportedly grabbed the handcuffs off from a table. The new court filing explains what occurred.
“At one point, MUNCHEL spots plastic handcuffs on a table inside a hallway in the Capitol. MUNCHEL exclaims, ‘zipties. I need to get me some of them motherf—ers,” and grabs several white plastic handcuffs from on top of a cabinet,” the filing states, adding: “As MUNCHEL and [his mother, Lisa Eisenhart,] are attempting to leave, Eisenhart says words to the effect of, ‘Don’t carry the zip ties, just get ’em out of their hand.'”
It appears that Munchel and his mother, Lisa Eisenhart, were simply trying to prevent the plastic handcuffs from being used to detain patriots at the scene. As the case is heard in court, more details about the case will be heard, and the full truth can be determined.
Big League Politics has attempted to debunk a lot of the spin, which is coming from liberals and conservatives alike, surrounding the Jan. 6 Capitol siege:
Less than a week after the infamous U.S. Capitol siege took place, many conservative talking heads – perhaps in an attempt to protect President Donald Trump from the nuclear fall-out – are claiming that ANTIFA terrorists were responsible for the mayhem that ultimately resulted in five people dead…
However, investigative work by Big League Politics shows that there is no real evidence showing that this event was promulgated or set up by ANTIFA and the political establishment.
In fact, there is more evidence showing that this was a spontaneous uprising of angry patriots who have been pushed past the breaking point.
As a reporter who was embedded in the thick of the chaotic scene, I personally witnessed protesters singing “God Bless America” and “I’m Proud to be an American” while they were being tear gassed and flash banged by authorities.
Protesters were risking life and limb to climb up scaffolding to wave the American flag and boldly display their patriotism. Chants included “USA! USA!” and “We the People,” with constitutional iconography being found everywhere…
Does this seem like the optics of an ANTIFA rally, or a pro-American uprising? Big Tech entities are scrambling to censor footage of the rally so that they can control the narrative about what actually took place, so people cannot understand this was a pro-freedom revival in the vein of the Founding Fathers.
Additionally, much of the “evidence” showing that prominent protesters seen inside the Capitol were ANTIFA has already been debunked.
While the Capitol siege may have been seen as destructive and drastic, what is really destructive and drastic is the behavior committed by Congress selling ordinary Americans out for decades. The Capitol demonstrators ought to be punished as harshly as the ANTIFA thugs who attacked Trump’s inauguration in 2017 for their mostly peaceful protest.
