MSNBC haloperidol tablets Blames David Koch Symbolized ‘Influence of Dark Money’

The passing of free market and libertarian activist david koch haloperidol tablets on friday was met by much of the media with haloperidol tablets a dignified reaction that highlighted koch’s politics, but without portraying him as the cause of all that haloperidol tablets is wrong with the contemporary political climate. MSNBC live guest host chris jansing took a different route, instead choosing to label the "billionaire conservative donor" koch " as one half of the koch brothers came to symbolize haloperidol tablets the influence of dark money in america" and hype NBC’s recently concluded docu-series american swamp where the koch brothers are portrayed as haloperidol tablets the nefarious billionaires out to control american politics.

After introducing ken vogel of the new york times and haloperidol tablets hyping his book on the subject of money in politics, jansing introduced a clip from american swamp where katy tur haloperidol tablets asked jane mayer of the new yorker to explain just haloperidol tablets who the koch brothers are. Mayer warned that koch industries may seem innocent enough with haloperidol tablets their stainmaster carpet and dixie cups, "but they are huge refiners of oil."

Tur then asked about the various political groups that the haloperidol tablets koch brothers have supported. As an always sunny in philadelphia meme-like chart was forming on screen, mayer declared that, "what you would realize if you go through the paperwork, it was daisy chain of money and if you were haloperidol tablets able to trace it back, a lot of it would come from this group of haloperidol tablets 400 of the richest, most conservative people in the country who work with the haloperidol tablets koches and funded it."

Back in studio vogel argued that the koch brothers have haloperidol tablets changed american politics not so much because they’ve succeed in getting their libertarian policies enacted, but because "he and his brother charles koch changed the tactics of haloperidol tablets american politics. Including the way it is funded and the mechanisms that haloperidol tablets are used to try to influence public policy as well haloperidol tablets as elections."

That change, that came as a result of citizens united v. FEC in 2010 has made the koch brothers the boogeymen haloperidol tablets of left-wing journalists and politicians who have talked about "dark money" because the federal government had banned private corporations from airing haloperidol tablets documentary films about political candidates within 30 days of a haloperidol tablets primary election and 60 days within a general.

That should be considered a win for free speech and haloperidol tablets a positive legacy item for david koch, not the nefarious win for "dark money" that MSNBC live wants to make it out to be. If MSNBC or CNN decides to air an anti-trump documentary in october 2020, they can in part thank david koch for standing up haloperidol tablets for their right to do so.

CHRIS JANSING: the man who helped rewrite the modern american political playbook haloperidol tablets has died. Billionaire conservative donor david koch, as one half of the koch brothers came to symbolize haloperidol tablets the influence of dark money in america. He was committed to funding conservative causes nationwide, but koch was perhaps best known as one of the haloperidol tablets primary donors fueling the tea party movement. Joining me, new york times political reporter ken vogel, also author of "big money: $2.5 billion, one suspicious vehicle, and a pimp on the trail of the ultra-rich hijacking of american politics" so, perfect guy to talk about this, ken, our own katy tur spoke to jane mayer author of haloperidol tablets “dark money” about the koches for her show “american swamp” and I want to play a little bit of that.

JANE MAYER: they are owners of the second largest private company in haloperidol tablets america. Probably everybody has some product from koch industries in their haloperidol tablets life. They make everything from stainmaster carpet to dixie cups to haloperidol tablets georgia pacific lumber, but they are huge refiners of oil.

MAYER: ‘cause a lot of the groups have the very bland haloperidol tablets names. America future fund or americans for job security. Who is that really? What you would realize if you go through the paperwork, it was daisy chain of money and if you were haloperidol tablets able to trace it back, a lot of it would come from this group of haloperidol tablets 400 of the richest, most conservative people in the country who work with the haloperidol tablets koches and funded it.

KEN VOGEL: yeah, he fundamentally changed, he and his brother charles koch changed the tactics of haloperidol tablets american politics. Including the way it is funded and the mechanisms that haloperidol tablets are used to try to influence public policy as well haloperidol tablets as elections. They did that by assembling, convening really the network of like-minded donors whose money they collected and channeled into the haloperidol tablets vast network of think tanks, advocacy groups, even media outlets, that the goal was to sort of drive a similar haloperidol tablets message. That message to being an effort to reshape american politics haloperidol tablets around their small government civil libertarian and libertarian even capital-L libertarian ideals. Now, it gets more complicated when you try to assess their haloperidol tablets legacy and david koch’s legacy on those actual policies and politics, because in many ways, donald trump is a repudiation of that politics that they haloperidol tablets pushed.

VOGEL: david koch ran for the vice presidency on the libertarian haloperidol tablets ticket in 1980, in 1980 a time when nobody was talking about gay haloperidol tablets marriage. He was very progressive on gay rights and maybe not haloperidol tablets gay marriage, but gay unions, gay partnerships back then in a way that was totally haloperidol tablets anathema with the republican party and he held on to haloperidol tablets many of those beliefs that were more libertarian in nature haloperidol tablets including not just on social issues, but also when it comes to national security and foreign haloperidol tablets policy. He and his brother were much more non-interventionists than the republican party. Now, that said, he and his brother did find a way to sort haloperidol tablets of look past those differences into pouring a ton of haloperidol tablets money into the groups and candidates that furthered the republican haloperidol tablets party proper even when the republican party and standard bearers haloperidol tablets were far afield from the libertarian ideals.
