Exclusive Audio: Inside the Koch Brothers' Secret Seminar
Edited on Tue Sep-06-11 10:05 AM by kpete

Teabaggers refuse to aknowledge that they are finger puppets for fascists, yet there is plenty of proof.



Exclusive Audio: Inside the Koch Brothers' Secret Seminar
A close-up view of the oil billionaires' dark-money fundraiser and 2012 strategy session.


"We have Saddam Hussein," declared billionaire industrialist Charles Koch, apparently referring to President Barack Obama as he welcomed hundreds of wealthy guests to the latest of the secret fundraising and strategy seminars he and his brother host twice a year. The 2012 elections, he warned, will be "the mother of all wars."

Charles Koch would probably not publicly compare the president of the United States to a murderous dictator. (As a general rule, he and his brother don't do much politicking or speechifying in public at all.) But Mother Jones has obtained exclusive audio recordings from the Koch seminar, a private event that took place in June at a resort near Vail, Colorado.

These unprecedented recordings provide a behind-the-scenes look at how the Koch brothers and their comrades talk when they gather. They include a pair of keynote speeches and remarks by brothers Charles and David Koch, who spell out their political aims and name some of the "great partners" who have contributed millions of dollars to their causes. (The audio was provided by a source who approached the author after the event was over and was not seeking compensation.)

3. It's interesting to see who some of the other cockroaches are
They've been scurrying around in the shadows while the light has finally shone on David and Charles Koch.

I knew about some of them but certainly not all of them.
