Koch Brothers May Decide to Fire Ryan, McConnell, Meadows


North Carolina Representative Mark Meadows, chairman of the House Koch Brothers' Caucus, (also known as the House "Freedom" Caucus) told The Hill newspaper yesterday, "If Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell can get [the Koch Brothers'] agenda done they can probably keep their jobs.  If Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell can't get [the Koch Brother's] agenda done, I don't know that they get to keep theirs, nor do I know if I get to keep mine.  We've got to deliver."

The statement by one of the Koch Brothers' key political servants suggests that the plutocratic brothers believe they have achieved a sufficient stranglehold on the American political process that they can come voluntarily out of the shadows and proclaim Koch Brothers' rule.

However, as history has shown, the Brothers have little aptitude for politics apart from perseverance and nearly bottomless money bags.  Directing their servant Mark Meadows to so openly confess his subservience to plutocratic rule suggests that Koch Brothers' frustration with the failure of their lackeys to destroy healthcare for millions of Americans and to move on massive tax cuts for the plutocracy, has at least briefly upset their patient, poised, and methodical approach to the destruction of America.

Indeed, Koch Brothers' frustration is understandable when it is noted that in addition to their vassals Ryan, McConnell and Meadows, one of their long-time political footmen, Marc Short, is White House Director of Legislative Affairs, and their valet is Vice-President of the United States. your social media marketing partner


A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

It just seems to me if your so dam bent on owning AMERICA and all its people. You need to do a better job with ALEC McConnell and Ryan. Consider a democrat like Barack Obama. He will get the ball rollen, Instead of kicking the can down the road.
