The Koch Brothers are losing key supporters especially in the energy industry as they turn their backs on Republican candidates and try to attack President Donald Trump.
Dan Eberhart, CEO of the Canary drilling company and Koch-World heavyweight, told NPR that he is not happy about the way the Kochs are cutting off some Republicans, like Kevin Cramer, who is running for Senate in North Dakota.
NPR Reports: “We as Republicans need a united front going into the midterm elections,” Eberhart told NPR. Asked whether he will continue to donate to the Koch network, Eberhart said, “It definitely gives me pause.” “I think that you’ve got to put the money behind the candidates and the people that are governing to try to affect policy outcomes,” Eberhart told NPR. Ultimately, Eberhart told NPR, “if the Koch network wants to maintain its influence in the party, I think that they need to be involved with helping Republicans win elections.'”
The Koch enterprise is also reeling from revelations on the Internet that patriarch Fred Koch had business deals with Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin and that Charles Koch was raised by a Nazi nanny. I reported:
Billionaire globalist donor Charles Koch was raised by a Nazi nanny during the period his father was profiting off his personal business relationship with Adolf Hitler according to mainstream reporting.
The Koch family’s shocking ties with both Hitler and Josef Stalin show the extent of the globalist clan’s links to anti-American tyranny and anti-American interests worldwide, shedding light on the profit-first mentality of the “free trade” globalism the Kochs represent. A family that has tried to present itself as anti-interventionist on foreign policy actually played a key role in building Adolf Hitler’s capability to wage war.
While President Donald Trump campaigns for the re-emergence of American power on the world stage, the Kochs agitate against American exceptionalism and for the continuation of borderless trade arrangements that benefit corporate titans like themselves at the expense of the American people. Sadly, this is nothing new.
“Fred Koch, the patriarch of the family, was an expert in building oil refineries, and he and a friend named William Rhodes Davis proposed building one in Germany during 1934, ’35, that period in there,” reported Jane Mayer, New Yorker journalist and author of the book Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right. Mayer’s comments in a past interview with NPR are interesting, considering left-wing NPR’s highly favorable segment on the Kochs Wednesday following their condemnation by President Trump and Steve Bannon.
Mayer details how Fred Koch was integral in building the Nazi war machine.
“In 1933, Adolf Hitler became chancellor of the Third Reich in Germany, so this meant working under the Third Reich,” Mayer said. “And in order to get permission, they actually had to go to Hitler himself, and William Rhodes Davis did the “Heil Hitler” to greet Hitler, and finally they got Hitler to greenlight this proposal so that they could build an oil refinery in Hamburg.”
“And the Hamburg Oil Refinery, built by the Winkler-Koch Co., became key, according to several German historians I talked to, to Hitler’s war efforts. By the time they built it, it was already clear that Hitler had very major military ambitions, but one of the things he was unable to do was to refine high-octane oil for warplanes. What this plant did was create that capacity, and it eventually supplied much of the fuel that was needed for Hitler’s Luftwaffe,” Mayer said.
“He was not a Nazi, and I certainly don’t suggest that in the book, but what he was was an American businessman looking for a good deal, and he was looking all over the world to see how he could make some money. Oddly, and what’s been known before, is before working under Hitler’s Third Reich, Fred Koch had worked for Stalin, where — under Stalin’s first five-year plan — Fred Koch helped build up the Russian, the Soviet oil refineries and really gave huge muscle to the oil industry in the Soviet Union,” Mayer said.
The Koch family’s relationship with Nazis did not end there, and actually extended into the home, according to Mayer.
“The father was gone doing business, and the mother was a very active socialite and was gone much of the time, and so she and the father placed the child rearing in the hands of a hired nanny,” Mayer said.
“Here again, you get this strange recurrence of a kind of little touch of Nazi Germany, because … Charles and Frederick, the oldest sons, were put in the hands of a German nanny who was described by other family members as just a fervid Nazi. She was so devout a supporter of Hitler that finally, after five years working for the family, she left of her own volition in 1940 when Hitler entered France because she wanted to celebrate with the Fuehrer,” Mayer said.
Biden Authorizes Attack on Syria, Kamala FURIOUS It Wasn’t Her Call
Will Biden do a regime change in Syria?
AMERICA IS BACK BABY!
You didn’t seriously think that after four years of peace in the Middle East, things were gonna stay that way, did you Jack? Well of course not! On Thursday afternoon, the Pentagon confirmed that the United States military had carried out airstrikes in Syria against facilities used by Iranian-backed militias. These groups have been operating in Syria for some time in their fight against the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda.
Pentagon Press Secretary Kirby gave the following statement:
This proportionate military response was conducted together with diplomatic measures, including consultation with Coalition partners. The operation sends an unambiguous message: President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq.”
According to conservative commentator Jack Posobiec, Vice President Harris was not included in the discussions about the bombing and is very upset that she wasn’t.
Kamala Harris was not informed prior to the Syrian bombing and is very upset about being left out of the loop, per WH official

Many Twitter users are also pointing out the fact that Biden had fully condemned unannounced military action in the Middle East when it was Trump doing it.

According to the New York Post, the airstrikes were in response to recent attacks against US forces in Iraq. The militia groups targeted have denied any involvement in the attacks and there has been no confirmation as to whether or not they were involved. The New York Post wrote:
The Pentagon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
It was not immediately clear if there were any deaths or injuries caused by the US strike, or the extent of damage it may have caused.
On Feb. 15, a rocket attack against a US military base at Erbil International Airport in Northern Iraq killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.
Two days later, a base hosting US forces north of Baghdad was targeted in another rocket attack, wounding at least one contractor.
On Monday rockets hit Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses the US embassy and other diplomatic missions.
Earlier this week, the Kataib Hezbollah group, one of the main Iran-aligned Iraqi militia groups, denied any role in recent rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq.
Some Western and Iraqi officials say the attacks, often claimed by little-known groups, are being carried out by militants with links to Kataib Hezbollah as a way for Iranian allies to harass US forces without being held accountable.
Fox New’s Tucker Carlson, who seems to be the only host on any cable news network that has been unquestionably anti-war for the past four years, gave a monologue Thursday night about his take on the attacks:
