Tom Frank on the dream that fueled the right wing's improbable comeback
|The Kochfather Organized Crime|
Once again SALON fails to grasp the nature of the operative forces.
The "TEA PARTY" was prototyped and test marketed over a long period of time by the Tobacco Mafia Organized Crime. By 2011 even SALON has by now learned that there was a 50-year felony conspiracy of the seven largest Tobacco companies and two formal front groups (Tobacco Institute and Center for Tobacco Research). Every possible means of deception and fraud was used to continue draining millions of people of their money, health and life by corporate serial murderers, completely without conscience or mercy.
Tobacco companies wrapped themselves in the flag and in the Constitution and used every patriotic symbol to further their schemes. Canadians were suckered into a "Boston Tea Party" anti-tax anti govt PR action in 1991, despite the fact that Canada was loyalist and on the other side of the US Revolution of the "Tea Party".
The Kochtopus was hired by big tobacco as soon as it was created, including Citizens for a Sound Economy. CSE was paid over $2,000,000 in one year by Philip Morris alone, but also received monies from other tobacco companies and also indirectly received additional funding through mercenary contractors like Bursten Marsteller and APCO. Cato Institute housed the APCO TASSC fraudsters where they received paychecks.
CSE, which bifurcated into Freedomworks and Americans for Prosperity, test-marketed the TEA PARTY aggressive anti-govt, starve-govt movement by erecting a "USteaparty.com" website, which was co-hosted on the CSE website, between 2002 and 2005, while George Bush was doing his first term, and Obama was not yet a candidate for president.
Tobacco Organized Crime used CSE to defeat the Clinton Healthcare project using all the same means it tried against Obamacare. 45,000 Americans died each year from lack of access to healthcare, and 450,000 Americans died directly from tobacco use (undoubtedly some overlap there). The 20-year delay in delivering healthcare caused some 900,000 additional deaths since 1991 when Koch-CSE was activated to defeat the Clintons.
Nothing said above is difficult to discover. It requires that one know the definition of "Sociopathy" and recognize the symptoms. It requires that one cared enough to know who the corporate serial murderers are, and, as sociopaths they will never be cured or change their modus operandi. It requires that one recognized early that the Tea Party was abnormal, that grassroots movements are extremely difficult to create and grow. It requires that one bothered to pay attention to the Koch's.
The Legacy Tobacco Documents Library online is freely available. You can verify from trial documents which already had their day in court and the verdict was GUILTY. One has benefit of "innocent until proven guilty" only until the verdict comes in and then there is no further benefit of the doubt, because there is no more doubt.
I have given you a starter collection of samples of documents. You who make your paychecks doing investigative reporting need to be investigating and reporting.
I expect to see very different words coming out of SALON mouths on talking-heads news shows going forward.
