Money Weasel Wednesday


If the billionaire Koch brothers turn to the White House for favors, they will see many familiar faces.

Newly disclosed ethics forms reveal that a significant number of senior Trump staffers were previously employed by the sprawling network of hard-right and libertarian advocacy groups financed and controlled by Charles and David Koch, the conservative duo hyper-focused on entrenching Republican power, eliminating taxes, and slashing environmental and labor regulations.

Some of the relationships were well-known. Marc Short, for instance, now Trump’s chief liaison to Congress, previously led Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, the dark money nonprofit used by the Koch brothers and their donor cohort to dispense money to allied groups. Freedom Partners, which maintains an affiliate Super PAC, was at the center of the Kochs’ $750 million election effort during the campaign last year.

But the ethics forms, made available to the public on Friday evening, reveal a number of previously undisclosed financial ties between the Koch network and Trump’s inner circle of political aides.

    Koch, Koch, hope ya croak, cuz you’re both a joke.

    Not even funny, with all your money, you could own the Easter Bunny,

    but instead you inflate your own heads like you own the place,

    all the more reason you deserve a pie in the face,

    and kicked out of this place.

    President Donald Trump reorganized his National Security Council on Wednesday, removing his chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, and downgrading the role of his Homeland Security Adviser, Tom Bossert, according to a person familiar with the decision and a regulatory filing.

    National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster was given responsibility for setting the agenda for meetings of the NSC or the Homeland Security Council.

    Now, Bannon may have time to take a shower.

    We’re supposed to get up to 6 inches of snow. They can kiss my ass. All my forsythias are starting to bloom. However, they would look beautiful in snow, lol.

    Hopefully, it hits Buffalo, NY and stays away from us.

    Now our ridiculous president, whose every word is taken as gospel, is trying to accuse Susan Rice of something. As in the accusation that Obama “tapped his wires,” there’s zero proof. He just likes to shoot off his mouth. He’s such a weirdo, he NEVER worries about what comes out of his mouth, doesn’t care that he spouts lies. None of that concerns him and THAT’S damn weird.
