Documents Reveal Boehner Is A Shill For Tobacco And The Kochs

cheap moncler In the first document posted here below, Beverly McKitrick, the Philip Morris (now Altria) Corp. Director of Federal Policy, outlined her strategy against the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). She wrote the memo on 2 October 1995, for her presentation cheap moncler outlet in an executive meeting at the company. It was extremely revealing about the company’s total reliance upon the Republican Party and its financial backers (companies and foundations that like themselves are controlled by America’s most far right aristocratic families) in order to deceive the general public to think that tobacco is safe and that government regulation is, itself, intrinsically wrong and bad, if not un American. cheap moncler

moncler outlet Her first listed of the four moncler sale listed “Third Party Groups,” in this battle against the FDA, was “Citizens for a Sound Economy,” the “nonprofit” that the Koch brothers had set up and financed, which later split into FreedomWorks and Americans for Prosperity it became the foundation stone for the so called “tea party grassroots movement,” which recently shut down the Government. All three of the other listed “Third Party Groups” that she lists in her memo were heavily funded by the Kochs, but not (as CSE was) created by them. moncler outlet

moncler outlet jackets In a different (and undated) 1995 document, David P. Nicoli, of Philip Morris’s Washington Relations Office, wrote to his home office, saying that, “The WRO also continues to work with outside groups like Citizens for a Sound Economy, the Washington Legal Foundation, the Competitiveness Enterprise Institute, and the Progress and Freedom Foundation, who all have significant and very high profile FDA reform activities underway. (The other foundations that also supported CSE were other leading far right aristocratic families.) moncler outlet jackets

moncler outlet store The two co Chairmen of CSE (and that link fails in Firefox) were C. Boyden Gray, who was the heir to the Reynolds moncler mens jackets Tobacco fortune (so, this Reynolds scion was now working also for his competitor Philip Morris); and Dick Armey, who was the retiring Republican House Majority Leader under Speaker Newt Gingrich. As for RJR Reynolds Tobacco itself, an email (which will be the second document posted below) was sent, on 22 May 1995, by Tommy J. for Federal Government Affairs, to Amy L. (All of them were heavy recipients of cash from the foundations of the Kochs, the Coors, the Earharts, the Milbanks, and Richard Mellon Scaife.) moncler outlet store

cheap moncler coats As for the second listed of McKitrick’s four “Third Party Groups,” the Washington Legal Foundation, Philip Morris donated $250,000 to them in 1995, and their chief funders included the Claude R. Lambe Foundation of the Koch brothers, and two foundations controlled by Richard Mellon Scaife: the Carthage Foundation, and the Sarah Scaife Foundation. That company was founded and is controlled by Richard J. Stephenson, who was one of the earliest backers of the Kochs’ Citizens for a Sound Economy, and who also secretly donated $12 million to the Kochs’ FreedomWorks in 2012. However, PFF’s main source of financial backing has become conservative aristocrats who own or control the major media companies, telecommunications companies, and high technology firms. cheap moncler coats

moncler factory outlet McKitrick’s memo went on to discuss “4. House Republican Conference CSE [the Kochs] sits at moncler outlet sale table with Boehner concerning Republican priorities. Look for opportunities here for CSE in moving with other groups to FDA.” So: the tobacco industry relied crucially on help from Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Republican House Majority Leader Dick Armey, and the current Republican House Speaker John Boehner, all of whom shill shamelessly for the most corrupt and harmful corporations. moncler factory outlet

cheap moncler jackets There even is a section in McKitrick’s memo that discusses separately “Paid Media” and “Earned Media,” meaning advertisements on the one hand, and free “news” plugs by fooled or else corrupt major “news” media, on the other. And, she even says: “CSE has creative ideas for earned media,” which means that, even back in 1995, the most dangerous corporations, and the families that controlled them, knew and virtually took for granted that the Kochs were the masters in the arts of public deception. cheap moncler jackets

cheap moncler jackets sale And so, this is how aristocratic psychopaths hire people of easy morals, who are masters at the craft of moncler outlet turning masses of mere fools into political suckers conservatives who end up voting moncler sale outlet into office the people (Republicans) who forced the government shutdown and who continue to threaten the United States while calling themselves “patriots” and defenders of “freedom” (for those aristocrats, that is). The suckers who vote for them don’t even recognize the contradiction: they are voting against their own interests. That’s why they vote the way they do: they are suckers for the aristocracy. In Britain, the Party of those people are even called “Tories.” Of course, the American Revolution was actually waged against the “Tories,” not for them. cheap moncler jackets sale

moncler sale outlet And, of course, these types of people (both types of Tories, both the conservative aristocrats, and their suckers) have always been around; America’s own great Founding Fathers waged the Revolutionary War against them, and defeated them. Government, and took this country as far to the right as the Koch brothers’ father, Fred Koch, had hoped when he co founded the John Birch Society. moncler sale outlet

moncler jacket sale However, the Kochs also operate outside of the direct network that they have established during the past decades. For example, on 24 October 2013, Huffington Post headlined “California Settles ‘Dark Money’ Case,” and Paul Blumenthal reported that the ultimate source of a certain $11 million donation to a far right “dark money” funnel was a “political money network operated by the billionaire Koch brothers.” From there, it was laundered through Americans for Job Security, to Center to Protect Patients Rights, to Americans for Responsible Leadership, which spent it on ads against California’s Democratic Governor Jerry Brown. Supreme Court are now considering whether to make “unconstitutional” any effective limits on political campaign expenditures; and, so, public revelations such as in that California case could soon become purely past history. They don’t like monlcer down jackets democracy; so, they do everything they can to block it from functioning. That’s what it’s all about. moncler jacket sale

cheap moncler outlet Boehner’s include Reynolds Tobacco (Reynolds American) at 4, Philip Morris (Altria Group) at 10, and Koch Industries at 17; but the other 17 are energy, mining, and Wall Street firms. Boehner’s also include cheap moncler both of the tobacco giants, but not Koch. That donor list, too, is dominated by energy, mining, and Wall Street. cheap moncler outlet

moncler sale The conservatives’ campaign has always been against “big government,” cheap moncler jackets their code phrase for democracy itself, which is something they clearly hate. buy moncler jackets As Reagan’s own Grover Norquist famously said, 25 May 2001, on NPR’s “Morning Edition”: “I don’t want cheap moncler sale to abolish government. I moncler outlet simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub.” That’s our democracy they are drowning. And they are slowly doing it. Plutocrats and their followers hate democracy and so are drowning it first in red ink (think of the Bush tax cuts, and of the invasion of Iraq), and then monclerdownjacket by slashing the government programs that the public needs. Fascism they don’t object to; it’s instead their actual goal. moncler sale

moncler jackets outlet However, this is only partly a class war that they are waging. They are waging it on behalf of the aristocracy, but a minority of aristocrats (around 30% by the most generous estimates) don’t consider themselves conservatives. It really is an ideological war, even more than it’s a class war. While only very few aristocrats might be considered progressives, perhaps as many as a quarter of them are liberals not in the European sense, but simply in the amorphous sense that they reject conservatism but have no conception of an alternative to it that they are willing to support with their money. The really big political money has always been on the moncler outlet store conservative side, even within the Democratic Party (where conservative Democrats tend to attract the biggest support among the big money donors who might be satisfied with liberal Democrats, but certainly not with progressive ones). moncler jackets outlet

moncler outlet sale A lot of people are disappointed with Barack cheap moncler coats Obama. He’s now secretly battling to get the European Union to remove its anti global warming policies that might make the Koch brothers’ massive investment in Canadian tar sands uneconomic to exploit, which would mean that the Kochs’ current $80 billion net worth might decline about $30 billion instead of increase about $100 billion as it probably would if the competitive disadvantage of such dirty oil is removed and if the Keystone XL Pipeline gets approved by Obama. So, behind closed doors, Obama is fighting hard for the Kochs, even though he has dragged out his decision on whether to let the XL go forward. He knows that the arguments for it are all based on lies; his own Administration (especially Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, when she oversaw the production of the State Department’s scandalous Environmental Impact evaluations of it) has shamelessly hidden those lies. As of yet, Obama still isn’t conservative enough to satisfy those aristocrats; his fight for their interests hasn’t won him their support. But he keeps trying to win it. Maybe finally he’ll just give up the effort. Two things are for certain: he knows how corrupt things are, and his Presidency has been one long sad story of his catering to the corruption, not prosecuting it. His actions speak louder than any of his hypocritical words can or do.
