Part 1. Why are the Kochs so involved in politics? Why are they funding this push for a Constitutional Convention? Why are they spending all this money? Yes, they have this agenda from the Libertarian 1980 platform that I made and people post. But most of those items are peanuts.
As a privately, held company, Koch Industries, Inc. does not have to report annual profits and revenues. According to Forbes Magazine at the fiscal end of 2016, Koch Industries was ranked #2 in “America’s Largest Private Companies” with an estimated worth of $100 billion.
Here's the list:

The other items are peanuts, compared to the environment. Think about it. How do the Kochs make money? Koch Industries is a privately held multinational corporation based in Wichita, Kansas.
Koch Industries is the largest landowner in the Athabasca oil sands.
washingtonpost.com/business/econo…
Tar sands are large deposits of bitumen or extremely heavy crude oil, Its subsidiaries (Invista, Georgia-Pacific, Molex, Flint Hills Resources, Koch Pipeline, Koch Fertilizer, Koch Minerals, Matador Cattle Company, and Guardian Industries)...
All these companies are involved in the manufacturing, refining, and distribution of petroleum, chemicals, energy, fiber, intermediates and polymers, minerals, fertilizers, pulp and paper, chemical technology equipment, ranching, finance, commodities trading, and investing.
Other than the categories of finance, commodities trading, and investing (3 total), do you see a pattern? All these companies cause a lot of pollution when they produce their products.
And when the local, state or federal government finds out that you have been polluting, they fine you. Sometimes they sue you.

Koch Industries was 10th on the list of the TOXIC 100 Water Polluters Index (2018 Report, based on 2015 data:
And 14th on the list of TOXIC 100 Air Polluters Index (2018 Report, based on 2015 data):
Can you believe that it was REPUBLICAN President Nixon that created the Environmental Protection Agency in the 1970s? But that's not it. He also supported the Clean Air Act of 1970, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the National Environmental Policy Act...
Nixon created cabinet-level Council on Environmental Quality, (CEQ), The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Earth Week (1971), The Clean Water Act (1972), Endangered Species Act (1973), Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974...
And the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. In short, #Climatechange=nonpartisan. It's not a #Democrat vs. Republican thing. That was manufactured. By whom? The Koch Brothers.
Here’s a thread that explains how the Kochs manipulated the public—mainly Republicans—to believe that climate change is a hoax.
Part 2 is next. Thanks for reading.
#Climatechange is real

#California Congressional District 48: #Democrat Harley Rouda @HarleyRouda or Russian Candidate Dana Rohrabacher?

Tough choice.

An asset to Russia...or
🗳️Many positive reasons to vote for Harley Rouda @HarleyRouda!

🇷🇺On the other hand, Dana Rohrabacher: The Kremlin Likes Him So Much They Gave Him a Code Name

ℹ️Refresher course: Putin kills people. His enemies. Journalists. Innocent people. He wants Democracy to die in every country lucky enough to still have it.

💥Friday, August 11, 2017

🔥White supremacist protesters—White nationalists, neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members—brandished torches and marched onto the UVA campus in Charlottesville, VA.

🔥🔥Saturday, August 12, 2017 a similar, bigger rally called "Unite the Right" held at noon erupted in many brawls. Alex Fields, a reported Nazi sympathizer drove a Dodge Challenger blindly into the crowd and killed 32-year old Heather Heyer.

Trump: the violence? "Many sides."
🧚‍♀️MOB RULE?!?!

🧚‍♀️10/6/18 ▶️Women—upset with the inevitability with a Supreme Court nominee getting sworn in—a nominee who clearly lied, had multiple credible sexual allegations against him, had a surly demeanor and was blatantly partisan, protested peacefully.

💬"The history is exactly what I told you."—Mitch McConnell

🤥🐢An hour after Judge Antony Scalia died: "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president."
🤥🐢"We simply followed the tradition in America, which is if you have a party of a different—a different Senate of a different party than the president, you don't fill a vacancy created in the presidential year. That went all the way back to 1888."
🤥🐢Will McConnell fill a SCOTUS vacancy in Trump's last year? "The answer to your question is, we'll see if there's a vacancy in 2020."

💬No answer.

▶️Mitch, you didn't attack Merrick Garland because you couldn't.
▶️You never mentioned "opposing party" caveat in 2016

On July 16, 2018, Concord Management and Consulting LLC filed a motion to dismiss Robert Mueller's indictment against the company.

Attorneys for the Russian company listed 4 reasons to dismiss. What judge was cited 9 times...and another 2 times?

#KavaNo
courthousenews.com/wp-content/upl…
🔥🔥Yes, Brett Kavanaugh. The judge cited twice=Gorsuch. Is this a coincidence?

▶️One of the 4 reasons Concord's lawyers moved to dismiss was that they claimed Concord had no knowledge that the crime they were committing was actually a crime. Kavanaugh supported this theory.
9⃣Yes, Brett Kavanaugh's opinions are cited NINE times by a Russian company seeking to get Mueller's charges dropped.

Mueller charged Concord, 2 other Russian companies and 12 foreigners associated with Russia for illegally using social media platforms to SOW POLITICAL DISCORD.

⁉️If Kavanaugh was innocent, why:

▶️couldn't he answer so many simple "yes" or "no" questions?
▶️didn't he ask for further investigation by the FBI?
▶️did he try to destroy evidence?
▶️is Trump mocking his accuser at his "rally?"
⁉️If Kavanaugh was innocent, why:
▶️is Trump fabricating this war against young men?
▶️does he claim all his friends refuted Dr. Ford's claims when Dr. Ford TOLD NO ONE FOR DECADES?
▶️did he say "Devil's Triangle" was a drinking game?
⁉️If Kavanaugh was innocent, why:

▶️did he say "boofing" was flatulence?
▶️did he claim no prior knowledge of Deborah Ramirez' claims before the @NewYorker article?
▶️did he evade Patrick Leahy's question about being called "Bart?"
