The Koch brothers told reporters there has been a progression of lies and attacks on the company since Barack Obama entered office. They also said this forced them to increase security on their homes and their family.

Protesters are regularly arrested outside of meetings tied to the Koch Brothers.
25 leftists were arrested at at Rancho Las Palmas Resort in California.

Leftists hate the pro-free market conservatives.

The Witchita Eagle reported:

The brothers say they are taking risks by speaking out. Mark Holden, Koch Industries’ senior vice president and general counsel, said there has been a progression of attacks and lies about the company since Obama’s election, including:

Summer 2010: Austan Goolsbee, then Obama’s chief economic adviser, commented on Koch Industries’ tax status during a briefing with reporters in Washington, accusing the company of not paying taxes.

Under federal law, it’s a crime to improperly access or disclose confidential tax information, according to Holden, who suspects the administration was trying to intimidate them because of their political views.

“It was false and malicious, too,” Holden said. “We pay a lot of taxes.”

May 2012: Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s deputy campaign manager, said in a video that the campaign is “going to call their BS,” referencing the Kochs.

“Really?” Holden said. “If my kids said that to me, they’d be going to their room. This is the deputy campaign manager? This is the discourse in this country?”

May 2012: David Axelrod, Obama’s senior political consultant, told the media in a telephone conference that Mitt Romney is being aided by “the (political strategist) Karl (Rove) and Koch brothers’ contract killers in super PAC land,” according to news accounts.

“And when you have Axelrod, one of (Obama’s) top campaign officials, saying we are contract killers. I mean, I don’t know how somebody in the administration can say that about a private citizen,” said Charles Koch. “The attacks are unbelievable.”

“It’s frightening because you don’t know what they’re going to do,” he said. “They have tremendous power. They can destroy just about anybody, whether you are totally innocent or not.”

July 2012: U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., read a statement on the floor of the U.S. Senate accusing the Koch brothers of being “two of the biggest sources of secret money in politics.”

With photos of the Koch brothers as a backdrop, captioned “The Koch Brothers: Subverting the Democratic Process,” Lautenberg spoke for three minutes accusing the brothers of picking their preferred politicians.

“If these wealthy individuals want to pick our next president, they should have the muscle and the courage to stand up and say so, tell everybody … what they want to do to our democracy. They don’t have the courage,” Lautenberg said.

Lautenberg also read a list of Koch Industries’ consumer products into the record, detailing the various companies the Koch brothers own. Koch officials called that action tantamount to inviting a boycott by consumers.

The attacks have forced the brothers to increase security around themselves and their families, both said. David Koch said Obama’s criticisms might tempt disturbed people to hurt them.

  1. Sounds to me like a concerted effort to take this election by hook or crook. My worry is what will happen when they lose the election . . . I do not expect them to go quietly.

  2. If David Axelrod said I was a contract killer, and I had a whole lot of money, not to mention being a reluctant public figure, I’d sue his a$$. That’s libel-per-se. I think that particular lie is outside the limits of Times v. Sullivan.

  3. Obama and his people have done more, in one term, to reduce the legitimate power, prestige and influence of the Presidency by their il-legal and over-reaching actions than Carter did with his stupidity and Nixon did with Watergate. He is not worthy of the office he holds and he is a disgrace to his race (both halves) and all the citizens of America.

  4. May 2012: David Axelrod, Obama’s senior political consultant, told the media in a telephone conference that Mitt Romney is being aided by “the (political strategist) Karl (Rove) and Koch brothers’ contract killers in super PAC land,” according to news accounts.

    “And when you have Axelrod, one of (Obama’s) top campaign officials, saying we are contract killers. I mean, I don’t know how somebody in the administration can say that about a private citizen,” said Charles Koch. “The attacks are unbelievable.”

    “It’s frightening because you don’t know what they’re going to do,” he said. “They have tremendous power. They can destroy just about anybody, whether you are totally innocent or not.”

    Well, here is another time where Axelrod and the Obama team will have blood on their hands. Just like Libya. Clear evidence that the Liberal nuts taking up the charge.

    and then this guy, May 2012: David Axelrod, Obama’s senior political consultant, told the media in a telephone conference that Mitt Romney is being aided by “the (political strategist) Karl (Rove) and Koch brothers’ contract killers in super PAC land,” according to news accounts.

    Austan Goolsbee

    Stephanie Cutter Both Parasites. These people will be out of a job come November and I will delight with one of the biggest parties ever. They are promoting hate and anger and have been the best of the best liars and gangsters in Obama’s posse.

  5. Axelrod is desperate and will say ANYTHING because he knows Team Obama will never be held to account by the corrupt media.

    On Fox yesterday, he offered his latest excuse for Obama’s poor debate performance — that the “real” (right wing extremist) Romney wasn’t the one who Obama was debating!! Great way to spin the truth, ie. The Romney that showed up at the debate was not the horrible caricature we spent millions TRYING to create! Axelrod is pure evil.

    IMPORTANT ARTICLE which sheds a lot of light on Obama (someone posted this link the other day but it’s worth re-posting)
    http://freethinkesblog.blogspot.mx/2012/07/does-any-of-this-matter-and-if-so-do.html

    One of the things you’ll see in the article is a lifelong pattern of LAZINESS. Obama was and still is a LAZY student, a bad student, and that gives me hope that his debate performance tomorrow will be almost as lackluster as the last one.

  6. OT

    But I just loved this and had to share.

    Tim (Allen) stuns H’wood with Bam slams

    Comedian Tim Allen has an idea for a home improvement at the White House: Get a new tenant! A rare Republican in Democrat-loving Hollywood — let alone in prime time — Allen delivers a comic smackdown in the season premiere of his ABC sitcom, “Last Man Standing.” It’s the first sign the GOP may be making inroads in what has been nearly solid support for the president on the left coast. In the episode, airing four days before the election, Allen’s uber-conservative character, Mike Baxter, tries to persuade his impressionable 18-year-old daughter to vote for Mitt Romney.

  7. If we fail to elect Romney in November, then I think it’s time the business owners and producers in this country show these criminals who pays their salaries. We should all just take a few months off, lay off our entire work forces, cut off the flow of tax dollars, and just see if that doesn’t wake them up. I’m getting sick and tired of seeing these people bite the hands that feed them …

  8. No, Granny, they won’t go quietly. I don’t know about you, but we’re ready ….

  9. Bring it on, “libtards”….. we are ready for you in more ways than one….. if this country goes into a financial meltdown, the people hit the hardest will be government employee’s,ie, (parasites) and those on the dole. Most of these subhuman species are located in large cities. The last time I checked, the food and water supplies are located in the country. Do the math. I just call it old testament redux.

  10. #7 Highlander: your plan is right out of Atlas Shrugged! I hope it doesn’t come to that, but you may be right.

  11. Granny#1 They will live in court while their riot squads slash & dash and the Attorney General of the United States of America will charge the victims and business owners with hate crimes.

    Our ELECTED officials will send one person out. (if we are extremely lucky it will be McCain’s Bush era sidekick Graham (McCain hit him from the front as a torturer while Graham sidekicked him with yep, yep Gitmo wrong).

  12. I am so sorry that people did not recognize earlier that America’s #1 enemy is Media.

    We must figure a way to go over, under and through them in order to inform the public. Yep, sounds nuts. They have not only allowed but helped Obama change America.

    Our ELECTED voices could have done something about this long ago.

  13. This is what you get when you allow a bunch of Chicago Commie Thugs into the highest offices in the land. It’ll be pure he!! to get them out. Owl’s right, the MEDIA needs to be exposed because too few of us know the truth they REFUSE TO REPORT.

  14. “a way to go over, under and through them”

    I recommend over and/or through. We’d never be able to get under them.

  15. Silence the Koch brothers and set an example to others is the game plan here. The tattered little lefties harrassing these people are psychological descendents of the Nazi’s, but no mention of this in our media & no surprise. Lautenberg would be funny if he weren’t such trash, he’s a multi-millionaire by far & he has the B—- to attack the brothers, trash.

  16. Obama acting pretty cool-like he has this election in the bag…after election, who knows…
    maybe he will declare himself P-for-life, and what can be done? Rely on Congress?Uh, no…
