Charles Koch Claims That African American President Barack Obama Has Stolen His Freedom By: Rmuse – Image, or reputation, is considered to be a primary component of identity as defined by others and based either on a person’s past and current actions or misperceptions due to a person’s avoidance of public exposure. Many individuals carefully cultivate their public image to preserve a reputation as a respected social entity or in the event they feel that social evaluation portrays them in an incorrect light based what they consider to be faulty criteria. Image is known to be a highly efficient mechanism of social control in society and its influence can either limit or enhance a person’s ability to be competitive in a variety of settings whether it is in business, interpersonal relationships, or to exert control over a population through political influence.
Despite their inordinate control over Republicans in Congress, theocrats, teabaggers, state legislatures, and the entire conservative movement, most Americans really had little, if any, knowledge or opinion about the Koch brothers due to their careful behind the scenes machinations while avoiding public exposure. However, as their sphere of influence and political activities were revealed to the population, the overriding image of the Kochs was one of wealthy industrialists with no regard for the American people, the environment, or democracy they yearn to transform into a loose confederation of theocrats and oligarchs under their control.
Charles Koch took action to control the image Americans have of him and his brother and penned an op/ed extolling his virtuous 50-year attempt at giving Americans back their freedom he claims African American President Barack Obama has stolen.
Like his Republican underlings he resorted to abject lies, misinformation, and propaganda to portray himself as America’s salvation. – Stick Kracka up a Koch Brothers Ass, Before a Koch Brother Sticks Kracka Up Your Ass!!!
Rand Paul pens tribute to Koch brothers By David McCabe – Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) writes that controversial conservative donors Charles and David Koch have “always stood for freedom, equality and opportunity” in a tribute published by Time magazine on Thursday.

Gohmert: I’m Bringing America Together Like MLK, Immigrants And Obama Tearing It Apart SUBMITTED BY Miranda Blue – Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, stopped by the anti-immigrant group FAIR’s annual radio row today to talk with Joyce Kaufman, a conservative radio host famous for her brief stint as chief of staff to then-Florida Rep. Allen West, which ended when her years of extreme anti-immigrant rhetoric came to light.
The two started out by discussing the recent hearing at which Gohmert started yelling at a female ICE official, which got them to talking about charges of a conservative “war on women,” which Gohmert said he wasn’t part of because his chief of staff is a woman. – Louie Gohmert Texas Cracka!!!
Christian Pastor Rips Fellow Cleric For Rejecting The Stoning Of Gays by JEAN ANN ESSELINK – “Let the hate begin,” wrote Baptist Pastor David Berzins on his Facebook page, over the post of a Raw Story account critical of the preacher’s own hate-filled rant condemning a fellow Christian pastor who has refused to support far-right preacher Stephen Anderson‘s call to stone gays to death.
If you aren’t familiar with Pastor Anderson, here’s a sample of his religious leadership:
“The sodomites are recruiters, and you know who they are after? Your children. They are being recruited by the sodomites. They are being molested by the sodomites.
