Billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch pleaded with government officials for a bailout of a failing North Pole oil refinery that they purchased in 2003.
“The Koch’s own a few refineries in the United States including the Flint Hills Refinery in Fairbanks. In 2003, they paid $265 million in purchasing the refinery from the Williams Companies,” wrote Alaskan journalist Andrew Halcro in 2009. “Less than three years later, Flint Hills began asking for relief from the Murkowski administration. In Februrary of 2006, Flint Hills sent a letter to the state asking for a change to their oil supply contract with the state so that payments owed wouldn’t be required.”
The Koch’s are notorious for their public opposition to “big government.”
“These are bothers who have established themselves as staunch Libertarians,” wrote Halcro. “Defenders of the free market and generous benefactors to such notable free market advocacy groups as the Cato Institute, to whom together, the brothers have donated over $21 million.”
But the Koch’s quietly worked behind the scenes for decades with establishment members of both political parties to enrich themselves at the expense of ordinary Americans. The Alaskan oil refinery is the perfect example.
“Less than three years [after the purchase], Flint Hills began asking for relief from the Murkowski administration. In Februrary of 2006, Flint Hills sent a letter to the state asking for a change to their oil supply contract with the state so that payments owed wouldn’t be required.
In an immediate response, State’s Oil & Gas Director Bill Van Dyke responded by saying that all parties, including Flint Hills, knew the oil supply contract was negotiated in early 2004, that disputes before federal regulatory agencies over pipeline tariffs were likely and could affect the oil price retroactively.
One Fairbanks lawmaker even introduced legislation (SB314) in April of 2006 to prohibit such retroactive billing adjustments in order to help out the home team refinery. The bill died in committee.”
According to Halcro, the Koch’s worked with Gov. Sarah Palin to try to fix their mess, and in 2008 she announced a “Cooperative effort aimed at positioning the North Pole Refinery for success.“
The state even considered taking over ownership of the refinery, and letting the Koch’s keep royalties from the profits.
In the end, the Koch’s never received the bailout they were looking for, and the Flint Hills refinery was closed in 2014.
Does this sound like the behavior of so-called libertarians? Of course not. The Koch’s have been part of the establishment uni-party that has crippled the American economy while enriching the elites for decades.
It was all a scam. And President Donald J. Trump knows it. In two consecutive Twitter posts from Tuesday, he said:
“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 of the Koch dynasty is near, ushering in a new era of wealth and prosperity for ordinary Americans.
World Economic Forum Deletes Tweet Claiming ‘Lockdowns’ are ‘Improving Cities’
More “Great Reset” propaganda.
The globalist World Economic Forum was forced to delete a tweet claiming that Draconian lockdown policies are “quietly improving cities around the world” after public outrage.
The lockdown policies have crippled jobs and exacerbated inequality, but the global elite are reveling in their effect and prepare to make lockdowns a fixture of public life with a captive public firmly under the spell of mass hysteria.
The since-deleted tweet can be seen here:
The tweet linked a video showing propaganda for the Great Reset, which will be used to finish off small businesses and consolidate corporate power at previously unforeseen levels. The video claims that lockdowns are helping society because they have resulted in drops of ambient noise and air pollution.
That video can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported about the push for the Great Reset as globalism soars to new heights using the COVID-19 scamdemic as a pretense for a massive power-grab:
A leading globalist elite closely associated with the World Economic Forum has openly predicted that the world will never return to a sense of normalcy that existed prior to the coronavirus pandemic. Klaus Schwab made the concerning claim in his new book, “The Great Reset.”
“Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal,” wrote Schwab in The Great Reset. “The short response is: never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘broken’ sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory.”
Schwab went on to predict that human history would be differentiated between an era before the pandemic and what comes after. He likened the historical event of the coronavirus pandemic to the birth of Christ, a peculiar slight to Christians who view the life of Jesus as an event quite unlike the spread of a disease.
“Radical changes of such consequence are coming that some pundits have referred to as ‘before coronavirus’ (BC) and ‘after coronavirus’ (AC) era. We will continue to be surprised by both the rapidity and unexpected nature of these changes – as they conflate with each other, they will provoke second-, third-, fourth- and more-order consequences, cascading effects and unforeseen outcomes,” writes Schwab.
In addition to being a longstanding patron of the globalist WEF’s yearly Davos gatherings, Schwab was a steering committee member of the Bilderberg Meetings. He was listed as an “international” member of the Bilderberg group’s executives, despite being a German national.
Managerial elites have spoken in open terms about their plans to redistribute the private property of average people to megacorporations and governments, compel the public to eat insects as a replacement for meat, and to gradually eliminate the use of personal automobiles.
Schwab staked out his vision of digitized corporate dominance of society in a recent speech given to the World Economic Forum.
The globalists are not fooling the public, who are growing increasingly enraged at their destructive policies and becoming more willing to support their nationalist opposition.
