Are We Watching the Trial of Trump or the Invisible Hand of the Koch Machine?

Charles Koch

Charles Koch, Chairman and CEO of Koch Industries

The shadowy escalations of Koch money and power in U.S. politics over the past four decades has far outpaced mainstream media’s ability to quantify it to the public. The media deludes itself that it is dealing with the problem by talking about the symptoms of corporate and billionaire money in political campaigns while ignoring the actual disease – the Party of Koch.

The rise of Trumpism is merely a symptom of the Party of Koch. The violent mob in the Capitol on January 6, attempting to overturn a duly conducted election, is merely a symptom of the Party of Koch. If Donald Trump is banned from ever again holding federal political office, and he should be, Congress still has done nothing to deal with the actual disease – the Party of Koch.

Charles Koch has been the Chairman and CEO of Koch Industries since 1967. According to Forbes, in 2020 he ranked as the 18th richest man in the world with a net worth of $38.2 billion. Charles Koch and the heirs of his late brother, David, who died in 2019, are the majority owners of Koch Industries, one of the largest private corporations in the world with interests in fossil fuels, refineries, pipelines, coal, chemicals, consumer paper goods, proprietary trading in currencies, commodities and stocks as well as numerous other pursuits.

For the past forty years, Charles Koch has been involved in creating and funding a sprawling network of front groups that seek to shrink the federal government in order to gut it of its regulatory powers over corporations and kill off federal programs like the U.S. Postal Service, Social Security and Medicare because they are popular with, and have earned the respect of, the American people. Charles Koch also holds semi-annual strategy meetings with like-minded billionaires and millionaires to plan how to sway election outcomes to their favored candidates.

In 2014, then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid accused the Koch brothers of trying “to fix every election in America to their liking.” That was the same year that Koch Industries launched its first ever nationwide marketing campaign – which since that time has enriched media outlets with millions of dollars in ads for its consumer paper products such as Dixie disposable paper plates, bowls and cups and its Northern Quilted and Angel Soft bath tissue.
