    Koch Network Announces It Will Support Democrats in 2020

    The Koch Brothers were once considered some of the most powerful interests behind the Republican Party, but that is changing because President Donald Trump is not for sale. They are planning to put their considerable resources behind Democratic contenders in 2020.
    The Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is revamping its operation for next year’s election cycle, prioritizing amnesty for illegals, opposition to tariffs, and support for open borders above all else.
    “We expect policymakers to unite people and build coalitions. We’re committed to forging a new way forward with political discourse,” said Emily Seidel, CEO of Americans for Prosperity. “We’re excited for how this new approach will help policymakers work together.”
    Instead of Republican victory, the Koch network is now focused on a plan to “elevate civil discourse” which, of course, means returning to the status quo before Trump started regularly calling out the Washington D.C. swamp with gusto.


    The Koch network’s pull-out may do little to stop the Trump train in 2020 though, as their influence is rapidly waning.
    Koch functionaries supported then-Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) with digital advertisements after she voted for deregulation during her re-election campaign last year, and then refused to endorse or support her opponent then-Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) heading into the election.
    Cramer won in 2018 despite the Koch influence, and is now a pro-Trump Senator from North Dakota. In the age of Trump, the Kochs are no longer political king-makers, and they have now exposed themselves publicly as globalists who are willing to sell out America for an extra buck.

    There is money for “libertarian” think-tanks if they unconditionally support open borders and no US tariffs. Which means that “Never Trump” will remain popular on the beltway.

    Trump does support reduction of regulations and corporate taxes, which is also popular in lobby-moneyland, but apparently that is not enough to satisfy. Plus he has already done that, so it appears to be a case of what have you done for me lately.

    They just love open borders and globalist ChiCom intervention in the marketplace.

    You're damn be sure if the government wrote me a check I'd spend it better than they do.
