Libertarian “conservative” mega donor Charles Koch has expressed regret over funding the Tea Party movement. He claims that in addition to failing to reduce the national debt, it helped usher in an era of extreme partisanship that has culminated in the presidency of Donald Trump.
Koch expressed these sentiments in a forthcoming book co-written with Brian Hooks titled Believe in People: Bottom-Up Solutions for a Top-Down World.
“Boy, did we screw up!” Koch wrote. “What a mess!”
His and his late brother David’s decision to pour money into the Tea Party movement was because “we shared their concern about unsustainable government spending,” said Koch in an email to the Wall Street Journal. But now he regrets it because government spending has increased even more and, in his view, the Tea Party deepened the ideological divide between Democrats and Republicans.
In an effort to shed his “partisanship,” Koch is trying to work with Democrats on issues like immigration, criminal justice reform, and foreign policy—though he still does give overwhelmingly to Republicans.
The Wall Street Journal describes Koch’s book overall as “part mea culpa, part self-help guide and part road map toward a libertarian America. Along the way, the book traces Mr. Koch’s life from hardheaded adolescent to student, engineer, industrialist, tycoon and political mastermind. The book suggests that he wants to add one final act: philosopher and, he hopes, unifier.”
Big League Politics has written much about the Koch Network in the past.
Koch is a globalist trying to play both sides of the aisle, and his vision of America is most definitely not a conservative one. These are not times to abandon “partisanship,” but to dig in and fight against globalism and the radical left.
President Trump Rallying in Valdosta, Georgia in Support of Perdue, Loeffler Saturday
MAGA is alive, not vanquished.
As President Trump litigates pending results of the 2020 election, citing pervasive evidence of voter fraud, he’s not forgetting about the Republican Party and the Senate election. The President is holding a Make America Great Again rally in Valdosta on Saturday night with Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
Will be going to Georgia for a big Trump Rally in support of our two great Republican Senators, David and Kelly. They are fantastic people who love their Country and love their State. We must work hard and be sure they win. #USA

The rally will be held at the Valdosta Regional Airport, with the outdoor venue serving to mitigate risks of COVID-19 transmission. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are running against radical Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock respectively, who have been funded to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars from out-of-state elite liberals from California and New York.
The President is still calling for stringent election verification measures in the traditionally conservative state, citing Georgia’s failure to conduct full signature verification measures of mail-in ballots cast in the 2020 election.
The best way to insure a @KLoeffler and @sendavidperdue VICTORY is to allow signature checks in the Presidential race, which will insure a Georgia Presidential win (very few votes are needed, many will be found). Spirits will soar and everyone will rush out and VOTE! @BrianKempGA

Video footage of ballot counting in Atlanta has revealed that some election processes were undertaken in near secrecy after the vast majority of poll workers left State Farm Arena. Four election workers were seen counting new boxes of unaccounted for ballots alone.

The 2020 election is over when President Trump says it is over. MAGA is alive, not vanquished, and in any event, the movement created by President Donald Trump will endure.
