Charles and David Koch of Koch Industries MIT-trained brothers turned family oil refining firm into America’s second largest private company. Koch Industries has stakes in pipelines, refineries, fertilizer, fibers and polymers, forest and consumer products, chemical technology. Sales in 2008: $110 billion. Brothers each own 42% of company. Employs 80,000 people and operates in 60 countries.The New Yorker does a hit piece against these billionaire titans of business and industry. Their company, Koch Industries, website is here.
As if earning and spending your OWN money in order to influence public opinion is a crime or something.
And, the title is extremely misleading because the Kochs’ opposition to the Far Left Anti-Capitalism Agenda of the Democrats and specifically President Barack Obama is widely known.
Oh yeah and the writer had to mention that their father was a founding member of the John Birch Society. Well, Non-Reagan, I mean Ron Reagan’s father was a Republican President, too.
Cindy Sheehan, Jodie Evans, Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez and Medea Benjamin, January 28, 2006Well, Jodie Evans of Code Pink infamy is associating herself with another FAR LEFT radical and this time it is California Attorney General and former Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown.
You might call him Governor Moonbeam, but I prefer Governor Double Dip, and there’s nothing harmlessly moonbeamy and charmingly hippie dippie about his doing business with Jode Evans, co-founder of the obnoxious anti-American group Code Pink and someone with a well-documented history of supporting terrorists and those countries that would do America harm.
You remember Jodie Evans and how she was booted out of the 2004 Republican National Committee. Here is the photo:

Yes, the Code PINKOS have been an egregious bunch and frankly I don’t know why Jerry Brown would want to be so visibly associated with them. But, associated he is.
The Code Pink Marxists taunted wounded soldiers at Walter Reed, they traveled to Iraq to support Saddam Hussein before the war, they sent thousands of dollars to support Al-Qaeda in Fallujah, they’ve traveled to Afghanistan to meet with the Taliban, they’ve met the leaders of the Iranian regime…
They’ve met with Chavez at socialist conferences.
And, telling a Gold Star Mom that her son deserved to die In Iraq is about the icing on the cake.
I still clearly remember the day that I was summoned home by my oldest son Kristofer to find the Navy officers and chaplain waiting inside my home to tell me the most painful and agonizing words I would ever hear, “We are sorry to inform you that your son Marc Alan Lee was killed in action.”
August 2nd, 2006 forever changed my life. I don’t breathe the same, I don’t think the same, I don’t act the same, I don’t live the same. Everything I do since that day is much deeper and with greater passion. I cherish every moment that I breath, every person in my life, every hug and the precious gift of life. Since that day I have dedicated my life to honoring and supporting our troops, their families and especially the families of the fallen.
I have always been a patriot and understood that our men and women serving have paid for my freedoms but since the day Marc willingly sacrificed his life, I understand in a much deeper way the cost and sacrifice that our brave warriors and their families make. “Freedom isn’t free” is a reality not just a patriotic slogan…
In 2008 they barricaded the recruiting office in Berkeley with the blessing of the Berkeley City Council. We at Move America Forward had all we could stomach when we heard them tell the Marines they were unwelcome, unwanted intruders, not in Iraq or Afghanistan but on American soil in Berkeley, California. Americans from across the nation joined us in Berkeley to counter-protest these anti-war hippies. Numerous times they told me they support the troops but not the war, yet over and over when I asked if they had sent care packages, phone cards, written letters, or helped the families left behind in anyway, they conveniently couldn’t remember anything they had done. Yet they had a successful fundraiser to send $600,000.00 to our enemies in Iraq? Yet Jodie Evans and her Code Pink degenerates taunted me and made light of my son’s sacrifice telling me, “Your son deserved to die in Iraq if he was stupid enough to go over there.” It took every ounce of reserve in my body to not level these idiots to the ground. These same people who call terrorists “freedom fighters” says that my son, who gave up his life for their freedoms, deserved death.
Now Jodie Evans is at her fundraising efforts again, this time to support Jerry Brown for Governor of California. California is at the top of the list for military bases and boasts one of the largest populations of Veterans, yet Jerry Brown a past governor of the state and candidate for the office again, is willing to take thousands of dollars from one of the largest anti-war groups in America. What a slap in the face to all of our brave warriors who have fought and sacrificed so much for our freedoms.
Yep, there will be a protest over at Jodie Evan’s house during the fundraiser which is going on now at the time of the posting. I doubt it will make the nightly local news but sure there will be some clips on YouTube by tomorrow.
Now, Jerry Brown is a FAR LEFT POL, always has been and always will be. He associates himself with radical LEFTYS who associate with the enemies of America.
California voters should remember this in November.
Somehow, I do not think Republican Meg Whitman will be letting this go.
In this latest Team McCain television ad, voters are reminded of Barack Obama’s comments about American strategy in Afghanistan.
ANNCR: Who is Barack Obama? He says our troops in Afghanistan are
BARACK OBAMA: â€œâ€¦ just air-raiding villages and killing civilians.â€
ANNCR: How dishonorable.
Congressional liberals voted repeatedly to cut off funding to our active troops. Increasing the risk on their lives. How dangerous.
Obama and Congressional liberals. Too risky for America.
The latest McCain campaign strategy has been attacking Barack Obama’s character and his past statements plus affiliations. Will this tactic carry over on a personal level at tomorrow night’s debate?
Ed calls Obama the “CODE PINK CANDIDATE” because of his association with Code Pink Co-founder and Obama fundraising bundler Jodie Evans. Will this be the next ad?
Cindy Sheehan, Jodie Evans, Venezuelaâ€™s Hugo Chavez and Medea Benjamin, January 28, 2006Jodie has a history meeting with the world’s thugs. So, why not Iran’s President Ahmadinejad?
Kristinn Taylor writes about the meeting.
A founding member of the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois met in New York City Wednesday night with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Jodie Evans, who co-hosted Obama’s first major fundraiser in Hollywood in February 2007 just after Obama announced his candidacy and is a top fundraiser and donor to Obama’s campaign, led a delegation of leftist anti-American groups that held a private meeting near the United Nations. The stated purpose of the meeting was to “serve as an opening for diplomatic resolution” to prevent war between Iran and the United States.
The government of Iran is listed as a state sponsor of terrorism by the State Department and is strongly believed to be developing nuclear weapons.
Obama has stated that he would be willing to meet with Ahmadinejad and other enemies of the United States without conditions. Evans met with Obama in Beverly Hills last week at an exclusive $28,500 per person fundraiser. As a bundler for Obama, Evans is granted regular briefings with top Obama staff members and meeting with Obama and his vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware.
Obama has come under heavy criticism from military families and troops support organizations over his alliance with Evans.
Evans is co-founder of the pro-terrorist group Code Pink and works with state sponsors of terrorism to undermine America in the war on terror. She also has publicly announced her support for the terrorists in Iraq, her sympathy for Osama bin Laden and her “love” of Hugo Chavez.
Given Evans’ closeness to regular contacts with Obama and his campaign, it is fair to ask if she is acting as an intermediary for Obama.
Obama recently put his seal of approval on Evans’ attempt to storm the stage during the acceptance speech of Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska when he welcomed her to his two Hollywood fundraisers last week, the exclusive $28,500 per person event and the $2500 per person event Barbra Streisand sang at the same evening.
Others attending the meeting with Ahmadinejad included anti-American activists who support the terrorists in Iraq and work anti-American governments: Medea Benjamin, Brian Becker, Leslie Cagan, Larry Holmes and Ramsey Clark.
Maybe Barry will appoint Evans as Ambassador to Iran or Venezuela should he be elected President. This is just another outrageous anti-American left-wing radical who is supporting and closely associated with Barack Obama.
The press release announcing the meeting is here.
The press release from Code Pink is here.
The CODEPINK women proposed inviting American and Iranian artists to build a â€œpeace parkâ€ in Tehran, a memorial dedicated to people-to-people commitment to peace and diplomacy between our two countries.
They also proposed a plan to invest funds in an Iranian business, one that produces green and sustainable products, such as bicycles. This grassroots investment would be the opposite of efforts by the Bush administration and Congress to tighten sanctions, a move which CODEPINK thinks would only hurt ordinary, everyday Iranians. Such a symbolic CODEPINK investment in a green, sustainable business would challenge U.S. regulations blocking trade with Iran and would show how diplomacy and trade are preferable to war and sanctions.
Bicycles and a “Peace Park” – Wow!
How about asking Ahmadinejad to stop providing weapons to kill American soldiers in Iraq or sending missiles to Hezbollah to fire against Israel?
No, this would be asking to much for these radical apologists.
Here are a few more photos of the Obama major fundraiser Jodie Evans who will be co-hosting “Voices for a Senate Majority” fundraiser to support Democrat senatorial candidates this coming Saturday.
We last saw Jodie Evans (left) and Medea Benjamin at the RNC where they tried to storm the stage during Governor Sarah Palin’s talk. They entered the arena using stolen identities of Republican delegates.
Yet, Chris, Americans thus far have forgiven or at least turned their head the other way with Barack Obama’s association with:
- Jeremiah Wright – God Damn America preaching black liberation Pastor for over 20 years
- Michael Pfleger – Anti-American racist priest
- William Ayers – Far left Radical terrorist bomber
- Bernardine Dohrn – Far left Radical terrorist bomber
If Obama had been on the RIGHT, the MSM would have had him for lunch.
Is Flap missing something here?
