Skip to comments.The Koch Party (Soros not mentioned)

As Politico described it on Friday, they have already set up an operation so sophisticated it rivals even the official Republican Party in its ability to shape policy debates and elections. Its components include a political consulting firm to recruit, train and support like-minded antigovernment candidates, which will be active in the congressional primaries. There is also a center that provides technology and administrative services to right-wing groups and candidates, an office that compiles and analyzes voter data and a youth advocacy group.
In 2012, as The Washington Post reported, the Koch network raised $407 million, which was secreted among 17 groups with cryptic names and purposes that were designed to make it impossible to figure out the names of donors the Kochs worked with. As one tax expert told The Post, its designed to make it opaque as to where the money is coming from and where the money is going.
The Democrats have smaller versions of these operations, though they are more focused on building a super PAC to collect unlimited donations supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016, and they lack the resources to compete with the Kochs at this stage.

The Democrats have smaller versions of these operations. LIE, LIE, LIE, Soros just to name one. nuff sed
What did Andrew Cuomo just say - “Will no one rid me of these troublesome right wingers”? Or at least that was the gist of it.
they have already set up an operation so sophisticated it rivals even the official Republican Party in its ability to shape policy debates and elections.
If they are as sophisticated as the Republican Party, it means they are completely clueless and destined to lose over and over again, right?
It’s New Koch. I like the taste of it. The NYT hates it. And, more iimportant, the NYT fears it.

All liberal lies have a manipulation behind them... this one too....
When we turned out almost a million people for Chick fil A protest liberals couldn't field 2 gays per store to show up at noon to meet with their adoring press...
The reason? It's all fake.. it's liberal elite astrotruf from top to bottom with idiot lying reporters who are in on the scam.
My Democrat friends say that Soros doesn’t get involved in politics.

|Woo hoo!! And the first 27% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
Your friend desperately needs to Google a few things.
The New York Times could take all the news that’s fit to print and turn it into a boat anchor.
Thanks God that there are some wealthy folks who will come to the rescue of freedom and free markets. All to may all to gladly provide the rope with which they will be hanged. Lenin said that capitalist will sell them them the rope with which the commies will hang them. He was wrong. All too may capitalists are donating the rope.
Except that the Democrats have the entire federal government apparatus on their side, not to mention the billions in free media from the MSM and Hollywood.
That’s the new narrative.
Boolah, boolah, boolah. This reminds me of the crap the Southern Poverty Law folks are always spewing. If the Kochies were so big and bad, our side would win once in a while. All we do is lose.
What we have are crony capitalists fighting for their spoils and using our country to do it.
I had been using it to line my bird’s cage, but it’s so light weight that it floats up and away.
