Reid, Pelosi To Attend Anti-Koch Movie On Capitol Hill

Reid, Pelosi to attend Koch movie screening

By BURGESS EVERETT | May 15, 2014 The Koch brothers are headed to the big screen — and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are coming along for the ride.

The two congressional Democratic leaders will appear at a screening in the Capitol of “Koch Brothers Exposed: 2014 Edition”a documentary that Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-Nev.) participated in.

Both Reid and Minority Leader Pelosi (D-Calif.) will participate in a question and answer session as well…

We wonder how many libels they will spew there, without Congressional immunity? Hopefully, some Koch lawyers will attend.

The screening will be held on Tuesday evening in the Capitol Visitor Center.

The Visitor Center Reid had built because he got sick of the stinking tourists.

The movie is directed by Robert Greenwald and is a midterm update to a 2012 film of the same name.

So it’s a re-run.

In an email, Koch Industries General Counsel called it “troubling that Senior Democratic party leaders are using taxpayer resources to publicize this partisan propaganda.” …

They do it all the time. In fact, that is just about all they do.

“It is disappointing, but not surprising, that Senator Reid and Representative Pelosi have teamed up with Robert Greenwald, a failed Hollywood producer who now makes obscure partisan attack videos,” Mark Holden said. “Mr. Greenwald made a series of videos about Koch back in 2012 which were filled with lies, distortions, and misrepresentations about Koch.”

Why not sue them? Enough is enough. Meanwhile, the anti-Koch jihad is being expanded by other Democrat front groups.

American Bridge launches Koch project

By MIKE ALLEN | May 15, 2014

American Bridge 21st Century Foundation on Thursday will announce a research and rapid-response digital project aimed at the Koch brothers, launching with a national and D.C. cable ad buy and three full-time staffers.

American Bridge founder and chairman David Brock called the project “a research-and-communications, first-of-its-kind war room that’s targeting the Koch brothers and also the GOP candidates who are benefiting” from their spending…

All in the name of increasing open political dialogue and reducing the bitter partisanship everyone decries.

From Discover The Networks:

American Bridge 21st Century

Established in November 2010 by Media Matters founder David Brock, American Bridge 21st Century (AB21)… this group conducts opposition research designed to help Democratic political candidates defeat their Republican foes.

To help achieve this goal, AB21 assigns a team of professional trackers to closely monitor the words and actions of selected Republican candidates running in key congressional races. Equipped with state-of-the-art cameras and computers, these trackers monitor what the candidates say at media-covered public events and during interviews with the press; they also personally attend campaign events and surreptitiously record what is said there…

By October 2012, AB21 trackers had logged more than 300,000 miles following candidates across the United States. The war-room researchers, meanwhile, had collected and archived thousands of pages of data and thousands of hours of video. All of these items are filed with time-coded reports, to make it easier for the researchers to subsequently locate potentially incriminating material to post on Twitter and YouTube, or to send to other Democratic operatives for use in attack ads…

AB21’s fundraising efforts have been bolstered greatly by David Brock’s network of Media Matters benefactors. Its top contributor is the billionaire philanthropist George Soros, who gave the organization $1 million in 2012 and another $500,000 in 2013…

Which shouldn’t be surprising, given that young George Soros was only too happy to help the Nazis round up his fellow Jews. Birds of a feather.

    or in laymans terms;
    live at home basment trolls getting paid to watch youtube and tweet.

    “no Mom, i’m not watching porn!”

    I thought it was illegal for Senators Reid and Pelosi to hold down personal jobs while serving.

    The progs have become really scary (the spying on Repubs). How about a movie about G. Soros? Probably not because the moviemaker would have to fear for his life.

    When did American citizens become enemy #1? We have lots of enemies in the world, and yet the democrats can’t say a bad thing about them, or probably even name them. They reserve their ‘two minutes hate’ for our own countrymen, who legally participate in the political process.

    If Rome, during its last days, was anything like our own, I completely understand why it fell. It would seem perfectly reasonable to allow the barbarian hordes to come in an wipe out your political enemies rather than be united with them to maintain a dysfunctional empire.

      from the Democrat playbook;

      October Revolution

      Leaders of
      the Petrograd Soviet, dominated by Lenin, continued to rule by decree, in the
      name of “the people.” The Petrograd Soviet ordered postal employees, telegraph
      operators and railway employees back to work. Postal and telegraph workers who
      did not recognize the authority of the new Soviet government were to be
      dismissed from their positions without benefit of their pensions.
      On November 23, the Petrograd Soviet decreed that all “class distinctions, class
      privileges and class limitations, class organizations and institutions, as well
      as all civil ranks” were abolished. And the Petrograd Soviet decreed that the
      property of the nobility was to be confiscated. Where Soviets were in control,
      especially in Petrograd, the wealthy were giving up space in their homes to
      members of the “working class,” and moving into their attics or basements.
      The Soviet regime issued a decree that replaced the old court system with
      “People’s Courts,” its judges to be elected. Originally Lenin had believed that
      leadership of a communist revolution after acquiring power could turn the
      revolution over to the masses. But Lenin was not about to try this. He still saw
      the need for organization and his leadership. Lenin was swamped with practical
      considerations. He stopped the vengeance of factory workers putting engineers
      and other skilled white-collar men to cleaning latrines, but he had to take
      action against managers who were sabotaging what had been their factories. And
      he faced a strike by teachers, engineers and other white-collar workers. Rather
      than leave matters to the spontaneity of the masses, a decree was issued
      establishing a Supreme Economic Council to manage the entire economy. In
      Russia’s cities, meanwhile, hunger had worsened. Grain supplies had dropped to
      new lows. So Lenin sent armed detachments of workers and poor peasants to
      confiscate food that peasants had stored, and armed clashes occurred between
      resisting peasants and the requisition teams.
      Fearing counter-revolution and sabotage, the Bolsheviks created a commission to
      be known by its acronym, CHEKA (the All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for
      Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage). And to combat “counter revolution”
      in the Ukraine and bring the Ukraine into the Soviet camp, the Bolsheviks
      mobilized an army.

      the Central Executive Committee passed a decree giving the Bolsheviks control over all newsprint and wide powers of closing down newspapers critical of the régime. . . .”; non-Bolshevik soviets were disbanded; anti-soviet newspapers were closed until Pravda (Truth) and Izvestia (The News) established their communications monopoly. the Bolshevik “refusal to come to terms with the [Revolutionary] socialists, and the dispersal of the Constituent assembly, led to the logical result that revolutionary terror would now be directed, not only against traditional enemies, such as the bourgeoisie or right-wing opponents, but against anyone, be he socialist, worker, or peasant, who opposed Bolshevik rule”. On 19 December 1918, a year after its creation, a resolution was adopted at Lenin’s behest that forbade the Bolshevik’s own press from publishing “defamatory articles” about the Cheka. As Lenin put it: “A Good Communist is also a good Chekist.”
