Ninety-nine days until the all-important midterm elections, Republican lawmakers and outside groups are beginning to distance themselves from President Trump — in ways both small and big. The latest to break away: the Koch Brothers.

“Top leaders of the conservative Koch political network, frustrated with the direction of the Republican Party, are attempting to rebrand the organization by vowing to be less partisan and work with elected officials across the political spectrum to advance their policy priorities,”

Policy priorities such as open borders and eff America trade deals...

There is a REASON Trump was the only one talking about immigration and trade, because EVERY OTHER CANDIDATE, ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE IS OWNED BY SOMEONE LIKE THESE GUYS WHO WANT TO DESTROY AMERICA, as long as they get a cut while its happening!

I was not aware the Krotch brothers were supporters of President Trump.

The Koch brothers are the chief financiers of the Cheap Labor Express.
They were never in Trump’s corner.

Seeing Chuck Todd’s name atop this story gives it as much trustworthiness as ads for ocean front lots located in Nebraska or Saskatchewan.

It’s actually not a bad strategy. In fact, I’d suggest this is exactly the strategy that enabled the GOP to overcome huge odds to keep control of the U.S. Senate in 2016 even while a “renegade” candidate like Trump was winning the presidential election.

The “Cock” Bros., are not Conservatives, they are simply globalist opportunists who at present see the GOP as the better bet to get what they themselves want. One of them said so in a TV interview not long ago. They are a couple of arrogant SOBs!

Keep it up, boys, and someday you’ll so demoralize Republicans that they’ll sit home and you’ll get Ocasio-Cortes and her ilk in power to loot you.

These goobers have never been conservative. They are big business globalist who bribe Republicans to support their money making schemes with the rest of the world.

Koch brothers you are showing your true colors, you hate America and would sell the Chicoms the nukes to wipe us out for an extra dollar. You are the worst of the worst where big business is concerned.

When I was a kid big corporation management at least still loved their country enough not to sell it out and had some pride in being an American citizen. The US Chamber of Commerce can’t say that anymore.

ABSOLUTELY-these are shysters of the WORST KIND. They appeal to “conservative” voters as long as you keep your hands off their third world taxpayer subsidized invaders.

Watch Harry Reid and Obama extoll the virtues of the Koch borithers now and how “independent” money is a good guard against “corrupt government”

The Democrats hate them. You would think they would understand better what the rats are all about. Tell that to George Will and the never Trumpers. Exposed is the word. My hope is that the Reagan Democrats will come around again, only stronger. It’s obvious what’s going on. W turned the other cheek. Did they respect him for that?

I thought, early on, that the Koch brothers were not fans of the Don.

They have never been. BUT, now it appears they have joined forces with unrepentant Nazi supporter George Soros to bring down America. Disgraceful turds.
