How The Koch Brothers Manipulations Led To The Rise Of Donald Trump

Even before the passage of the disastrous Citizens United ruling the Koch brothers essentially controlled the Republican Party. They funded virtually every GOP member of Congress, numerous Governors, and many state level elected officials.
The Koch Brothers created A.L.E.C. (American Legislative Exchange Council) to set the agenda that politicians (mostly Republican) were required to abide by if they wanted to get Koch Brother & (other) Corporate funding. (see http://govreform.net/alec.html )
Around 2010 (about the same time as the passage of Citizens United) the Koch Brothers began creating dozens of phony front groups. These groups published false information (CATO & Heritage), organized people under false pretenses (like the Tea Party), and served as fronts to funnel money into candidates & PAC’s (political action committees).
2010 was also when the first Tea Party members were elected to Congress. Since their election to Congress they have blocked virtually every piece of legislation, except those that fit into the Koch Brothers / ALEC agenda.
About 2014 Republican voters became very dissatisfied with how the GOP was governing (or not governing), and how they were not keeping their campaign promises (lies). This brought about widespread dislike of the GOP establishment, and hence the rise of megalomaniac Donald Trump.

First they supported the GOP, then they supported the Tea Party, then they supported the Bundy militants.

First they supported the GOP, then they supported the Tea Party, then they supported the Bundy militants. All three of these groups are financed by and (mostly) controlled by the Koch Brothers. Now these morons are supporting racist megalomaniac Donald Trump.
Thanks to Citizens United the Koch Brothers have given hundreds of millions of dollars to the GOP.
Americans For Prosperity and FreedomWorks, the two main financial supporters of the Tea Party, are both phony front groups for the Koch Brothers.
The American Lands Council, another phony Koch Brothers front group is funding the Bundy militia.

Of course these are the same people who voice the loudest complaints about the direction of our country.
All along it is these same SHEEP who have put our country in this position it is in, in the first place.
It’s no wonder Trump is always saying “I love the under educated”.
No one else would vote for him.

Trump already built a wall, between us and the rest of the world.

Donald Trump is still just a presidential candidate and he has not only alienated us from the rest of the world, he has painted an even bigger target on us. Trump has insulted and threatened every other race that is not white.
Trump hates all the other races, until he needs workers for one of his holdings or projects, then he loves them, and shows it with pathetically sub legal wages. Trump is always saying he will ship illegal immigrants home, but he imports them to work on his projects.
It’s not just Trumps racism, hate, bigotry, ignorance, arrogance, hypocrisy, greed and corruption, it’s also the number of ignorant right wing nut job white supremacist that support him that angers and scares the world.
This is how the world views us now.
Even our allies are turning against us.
Can you imagine what it would be like if Trump were to become President?

The Trump Family’s Decades of Racism and Bigotry.

In 1973 the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Donald and Fred Trump for violations of the Fair Housing Act. The suit claimed that the Trumps and the Trump Organization would mark African American’s applications for housing, in their numerous buildings, with a ‘C’ for ‘Colored’ (and other racial codes). According to the Department of Justice, that was the crude code that ensured the rental would be denied.
In addition to the alleged code, the lawsuit claimed other Trump employees had spoken of a host of nasty tactics to keep blacks from renting apartments—from supers telling prospective black applicants that the rental rates were substantially higher than they actually were, to keeping “a sham lease and check to be shown to black applicants.” One rental agent at Trump’s Tysens Park Apartments said that he’d been told by Fred Trump himself not to rent to blacks. In 1975, Trump Management settled the case with a consent decree.
Donald likes to spreads his racism around. When Donald announced his candidacy for president, he began by comparing Mexican immigrants to “rapists”. He said his followers were “Passionate” after being told two men beat a Hispanic man in his name. He kicked Univision journalist Jorge Ramos out of a Press Conference, then stood by as his supporters insulted him.
And Donald has repeatedly insulted Asians.

Of note is this. According to a New York Times article published in June 1927, a man with the name and address of Donald Trump’s father was arraigned after Klan members attacked cops in Queens, N.Y. In an article subtitled “Klan assails policeman”, Fred Trump is named in among those taken in during a late May “battle” in which “1,000 Klansmen and 100 policemen staged a free-for-all.” At least two officers were hurt during the event. Police records no longer exist, but the Times article does.

This is definitely not to excuse Donald’s racism, but I guess we know where it comes from.
