"ERIC ZUESSE FOR BUZZFLASH AT TRUTHOUT

KochBrosExposedI covered previously the decades-long Koch-operation that got us to where we are (see those earlier posts here, and here, and here, and here). I shall now describe the money-trail from there to Senator Ted Cruz, who directly headed the shutdown-effort in the U.S. Congress.

The two chief contributors to Cruz's political career donated over a million dollars to it (and no other entity donated as much as $100,000 to it). These two top sources of contributions to Mr. Cruz's political career were Club For Growth, and Senate Conservatives Fund, which together donated over a million dollars to it."

Like most rich assholes, they just pay others to do the real work.

Plausible denial being key.

Not that cool really.

I posted some truth in an attempt to see if truth would trump the conspiracy theory of "duopoly."

Judging buy[sic]* the comparative response.

Bullshit won.

  • They bought it.

From a rather small group that doesn't have the capacity to make a legitimate argument. Fuck 'em.

They make up for their lack of capacity with persistence.
