With the passing of libertarian icon and capitalist titan David Koch this past week from prostate cancer, it has put the focus on who will lead Koch industries for the next generation.
83-year-old Charles Koch, the surviving Koch brother who is preparing for retirement, is handing off the reigns to his son, Chase. According to a profile by Politico Magazine, Chase is pushing for a “kinder, gentler libertarianism” that is more focused on pushing social justice initiatives than pushing back against leftism and statism on a political level.
“My passion is to bring people together to solve some of the major challenges facing society today, including in education and in many different aspects of our communities. Bottom line—I’m focused on removing the barriers so that everyone has the opportunity to achieve extraordinary things,” he told Politico.
Chase Koch is actively partnering with Silicon Valley, embracing the industry at a time when firms are pushing an unprecedented Big Brother crackdown against all online forms of dissent. He founded Koch Disruptive Technologies in 2017, a venture capital firm meant to extend the tentacles of the Kochtopus into the nascent technocracy.
Seeing partisan politics as a less viable way to exert control, the new Koch era will rely on exploiting tech monopolies to control digital expression as the means to retain and expand economic power. The Koch’s network recent participation in a thought control summit in San Francisco, CA, alongside left-wing pro-censorship groups like the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Soros Fund Charitable Foundation, shows the direction the Koch network is going in as Chase becomes more prominent.
The Koch network under Chase’s control will more frequently use the language of social justice for public relations’ purposes. Chase has been influential in the development of the new Koch anti-poverty program, Stand Together, which was founded with the guise of spurring business development, job training for low-income individuals, and revitalizing downtrodden communities through the marketplace.
“Stand Together is a call to action to social entrepreneurs across the country, and that’s what we’ve become,” said Brian Hooks, who works as chairman and CEO of the Koch network. “For too many years, we’ve let people define who we are, and now we’re defining ourselves.”
“We are trying to increase the efficacy and drive more results in the philanthropic sector, so it’s been a great experience working with Koch Industries and the business leaders in this network to bring that for-profit mindset to the social sector,” said Lauren McCann, executive vice president of the Stand Together Foundation.
However, Stand Together encompasses other Koch-funded entities like Freedom Partners and the LIBRE Initiative. These groups are behind a massive cheap labor push from the third world, constantly lobbying Congress for open immigration and amnesty for illegal immigrants. This indicates that the group’s lip service toward helping American workers may be a clever ruse to further maximize corporate profits.
While the infamous Koch Brothers have drawn the ire of liberals for supporting causes typically seen as right-wing, the next generation of Koch – by embracing Big Brother censorship and social justice rhetoric – will not likely pose as much of a threat to the status quo as its predecessor.
President Donald Trump Urges House Republicans to Vote Against Re-Authorizing FISA Secret Courts
Trump has learned the right lesson from the Russian collusion madness.
President Donald Trump is pushing back against the deep state by urging House Republicans to reject the re-authorization of the FISA secret court system.
He made the announcement in a tweet issued on Tuesday evening.
I hope all Republican House Members vote NO on FISA until such time as our Country is able to determine how and why the greatest political, criminal, and subversive scandal in USA history took place!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 26, 2020
The Russian collusion investigation was made possible due to the FISA secret courts, which essentially rubber-stamped all kinds of illicit spying on the President and his associates.
The FISA court threw the FBI under the bus in the aftermath of the Russia-gate farce that exposed the treachery of the federal government:
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court issued a sharp rebuke of the FBI on Tuesday, accusing them of “so many basic and fundamental errors” in filing the surveillance application for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the OIG report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Rosemary Collyer, presiding judge with the FISC, wrote in an order to the FBI released by the court…
Inspector General Michael Horowitz detailed a comedy of errors from an FBI that has proven itself to be ridiculously incompetent or malicious in its attempts to pin Russian collusion on President Trump and his close associates.
Collyer said that the report has presented “troubling instances in which FBI personnel provided information to NSD [the National Security Division of the Justice Department] which was unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession.”
“The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable,” Collyer wrote.
“The FISC expects the government to provide complete and accurate information in every filing with the Court. Without it, the FISC cannot properly ensure that the government conducts electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes only when there is a sufficient factual basis,” she added.
President Trump has come out against FISA after many talks with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who has been leading the charge against the unconstitutional secret court system since long before Russia-gate.
“It flies in the face of our Constitution that a secret court can authorize invading an innocent American’s privacy. Recent months have once again made all too clear how such a system leads to abuse. It’s time for Congress to stop paying lip service to reform and pass real safeguards that respect Americans’ rights. What happened to General Flynn and President Trump should never be allowed to happen again,” Paul said earlier this year.
The House is expected to vote on FISA re-authorization Wednesday morning. President Trump hopes that his words can influence Republicans into doing the right thing and pushing back against an intelligence community that has clearly run amok.
