Tearing the Government Out at the Root: The Dream of the Koch Brothers and their Radical Father – By Claire Conner – The GOP did not become the radical, anti-government party by accident. Two men, David and Charles Koch, have spent most of their adult lives and hundreds of millions of dollars to convince Americans that we need a tiny government with no power in order to be free. If you want to understand how these men became such anti-government power brokers, take a few minutes to meet their father, one of the founding members of the John Birch Society.
Don’t stop reading because the Birch Society is, in your mind, ancient history. At this moment, candidates who spout John Birch Society ideas are in control in the House, Senate, and 30 states. If we give them the White House — look out.
Most Americans have no idea how much the Birch Society has impacted our country. Those who have heard of the Birchers believe they are fringe radicals who were done in by conservative Republicans was back in the 1960s. Hardly anyone knows the names of even a handful of Birchers. There is one Birch name, however, that raises eyebrows: Koch. – On The Supreme Court, The Republican Senate Kneels Before Its Koch Masters By Dartagnan – Tearing the Government Out at the Root: The Dream of the Koch Brothers and their Radical Father – By Claire Conner!!!

In the weeks since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, Republicans have relied on falsehoods and fabricated claims in an attempt to justify their refusal to consider any person President Obama nominates to take Scalia’s place on the Supreme Court. It comes as no surprise, then, that as soon as President Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland for the seat, conservatives immediately turned to ridiculous and dishonest arguments to oppose his nomination.
