I have always identified Paul Ryan as (R-Wall St.), but I have come to realize that he now reports to a new master – The Koch Brothers. (Be honest did anyone think Wisconsin’s First District residents? Didn’t think so). The Billionaire Koch Brothers, who inherited their billions, recently recently tried to hold a secret meeting of the tea party financiers. They have been holding these meetings in secret for a while now(Rodeo Clown Glenn Beck was the headliner last year). This year news of the meeting was leaked and, much to the Koch brothers chagrin, about 1500 people showed up to protest the welfare kings. The Brothers K, who fund the tea party and claim to love “grassroots” have a differing opinion when it is aimed AT them. The democracy hating brothers, hired goons to threaten critics and reporters.
Inside the resort at the beginning of the conference, “there was an atmosphere almost of paranoia,” said Gary Ferdman, a Common Cause official.
Ferdman had reservations at the resort and stayed there Thursday and Friday night. He said he was told Saturday that his lunch reservations at the resort restaurant had been canceled and was urged to check out and leave promptly by a member of Koch’s large security detail.
Security manned every doorway and stairwell near the ballrooms where Koch events were held, and threatened to jail this POLITICO reporter while he waited in line at the resort’s cafe, after he stopped by a Koch conference registration table.
The resort grounds were “closed for a private function,” the resort’s head of security, James Foster told POLITICO, ushering the reporter outside, where private security guards, wearing gold lapel pins bearing Koch’s “K” logo, threatened “a citizen’s arrest” and a “night in the Riverside County jail” if the reporter continued asking questions and taking photographs.
Now that they can buy elections and politicians, they think they have the ability to arrest reporters.
While the fact that the Koch’s are anti-democracy and have nothing but disdain for the working people of this country is not surprising, the main speaker at this weekend event was – Congressman Paul Ryan.
Ryan gave his speech to a crowd that included Patrick Pizzella(jack Abramoffs old partner), Americans for Prosperity officials like Alan Cobb, political consultant Michael Goldfarb, longtime lobbyist Nancy Pfotenhauer, and a number of donors, including Home Depot founder Ken Langone and billionaire heiress Diane Hendricks(hmmmm). Ryan then followed up this weekend gathering by breaking his promise of cutting $100 billion from the budget by coming up with a much smaller
32 Billion dollars in cuts. In typical Ryan fashion, he does not give specifics of what the cuts will be too.
Is this really what the “tea party” was after? a Bunch of billionaires meeting in complete secrecy and arresting reporters? Does the fact that Paul Ryan says how high when the Koch Brothers say jump bother anyone in the first district of WI? How does the Koch brothers ideology and priorities align with the people of Janesville and Racine? Is making the Koch brothers happy really qualify Ryan for a promotion in Wisconsin politics? When is the last time Paul Ryan did something that actually benefited the 1st district of WI?
From now on I will represent Ryan by his real affiliation – Paul Ryan (R – Koch Brothers).

Heartland Institute? Anybody? http://bit.ly/heartland-on-ryan
I like to refer to him as “Lyin Ryin”!
Wow that Heartland website was scary…who the hell runs that? i love when the extreme right try and co-opt the founders. They could not be farther from the values and beliefs of Jefferson, Paine, Franklin, Madison, etc…
Think of any example of conservatives behaving badly and there is likely a Heartland link there somewhere. Always the first connection I look for.
They can be right wing anti-democracy bastards like the Koch brothers all they want, just dont try and turn the founders into something they were not. You know the Heartland people and the Koch brothers would have been the first people turning the dissenters in and running back to England for protection. Paul Ryan would of been first in line.
What is really funny is the America hater George Soros who has more money than he needs (right progressives) The hate group Common Cause who organized the protest is funded by billionaire George Soros…
… So these deadbeats were protesting sonething that thet are guilty of themselves, money from billionaire George Soros was funding a protest against rich people’s influence on politics.
Why exactly does George Soros hate America? Is it because he happens to fund liberal causes?
In your opinion do all liberals hate America?
No there are many liberals who love America and believe in it, but there are a good number of far left progressives who do not like America and really want to transform it into a country that is no longer the home of the free and land of the brave.They want to make this a nanny state country and continue to weaken us in the world politically and militarily and George Soros is a major player to that end.
Everyone in the US and Canada should do more research on the Koch Brothers. These are a scary lot. There is an excellent article in the New York Times and especially in the New Yorker about the rise of the Koch Brothers. One may also want to read the article Addicted to Koch, sorry I cannot remember the periodical. More research on these two should be the order of the day for everyone.
New York Times and New Yorker yep thats the media I would use for non bias reporting….. hysterical……
Yeah, “The Blaze” is where it’s really happening. Nothing like a steaming pile of news!
When did helping your fellow man become a sin in tbe eyes if conservatives? Why does your conservative rhetoric smack of hate hidden by such hitler like overtones of nationalism, “save america”. Save America from “America Haters”. Just like hitler’s rhetoric, there are very little details to base these sound bites on. Just fear. America became great as a haven of acceptance for other cultures. A melting pot of ideas. The conservatives have always preached non-tolerance Romney will do nithing to help America. He just wants tge title. Ryan is a souless soldier of the Koch brothers….very dangerous. Why do hard wirking americans vote with these people? The only answer I can see is self loathing and HATE.
