I found this article online this morning and thought it relevant to ATS as the Koch Brothers are two of the biggest movers and shakers in the world of money and politics. Their ability to buy politicians and shape public policy is nearly unparallelled by anyone else in the private sector.

At the very bottom of this post is the list of meetings held at the 2014 Donors Conference held Jan 2014 in Palm Springs.
These are some of their tools for controlling public opinion: Heritage Foundation - Cato Institute - Americans for Prosperity - FreedomWorks

I would ask ATSer's to look into the names and connections at this conference as knowledge is power.

Personally I despise this family and all they stand for.
I vote with my wallet and do my best to avoid giving my money to anything they may profit from. I also do not do business with companies that support them so I found this list extremely interesting! I will miss Papa Johns the most as they were one of the better delivery pizzas.


The list also includes Papa John pizza chain founder and hard-core Republican John Schnatter, Kenneth Griffin, the chief executive of Citadel, Silicon Valley real estate investor Carl Berg (worth $1.1 billion) and owner of Omni Hotels and Gold’s Gym. What’s more, it appears Charles Koch was scheduled to hold private meetings with at least nine of the contributors including private equity investor John Childs and TRT Holding co-founder Robert Rowling who is worth around $4.9 billion.
Those in attendance also contributed to American Crossroads, the super PAC co-founded by Karl Rove, with Rowling directing $3.5 million to the cause.

From Wikipedia

Koch Industries, Inc. /ˈkoʊk/ is an American multinational corporation based in Wichita, Kansas, United States, with subsidiaries involved in manufacturing, trading and investments. Koch also owns Invista, Georgia-Pacific, Flint Hills Resources, Koch Pipeline, Koch Fertilizer, Koch Minerals and Matador Cattle Company. Koch companies are involved in core industries such as the manufacturing, refining and distribution[1] of petroleum, chemicals, energy, fiber, intermediates and polymers, minerals, fertilizers, pulp and paper, chemical technology equipment, ranching,[3] finance,[citation needed] commodities trading, as well as other ventures and investments. The firm employs 50,000 people in the United States and another 20,000 in 59 other countries.[4] In 2011, Forbes called it the second largest privately held company in the United States (after Cargill), with an annual revenue of about $98 billion,[5][6][7] down from the largest in 2006. If Koch Industries were a public company in 2007, it would have ranked about 16 in the Fortune 500.[8] Fred C. Koch, after whom Koch Industries, Inc. is named, co-founded the company in 1940 and developed an innovative crude oil refining process.[9] His sons, Charles Koch, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, and David H. Koch, executive vice president, are principal owners of the company after they bought out their brothers, Frederick and William "Bill" Koch, for $1.1 billion in 1983.[10] Charles and David H. Koch each own 42% of Koch Industries, and Charles has stated that the company will publicly offer shares "literally over my dead body".[5]

Isn't this just too obvious?

I say it is a planted document.

Obviously the "opposition" groups knew the secret meeting was in "progress" eh?

Alarming either way.

So, how do we get $$$ out of politics?

Who is credible enough to decide?

I will give you credit for consistency..... The article does say it was a "leaked" document. Most likely leaded by someone in opposition to the Koch Brothers. I did a quick search on some of those names and the connections are there and valid. They have long term connections to the Koch Brothers.

So while leaked or "planted", they are valid.

I get it. It's OK for left wing radicals like George Soros or Bloomberg to fund whatever left wing "policy organizations" like Move On that they want to, but as soon as a right wing person supports an organization THEY want to, it's completely wrong.

Hypocrites.

Wow, You twisted that all up.
Why would you take this and try to turn it into a right vs left thread? It is about the Koch's and their supporters.

I am a gun toting, pro death penalty, pro choice, pro gay marriage kinda guy and I don't take sides. I just look at issues. Those that look at issues from a left or right perspective only are IMO Americas dumbest people and WHY everything is a mess.

I don't like George Soros either.

Both sides are bought out by big money, but here you go defending the right.
