The Koch Brothers, I really don’t know much about them. I have heard unsettling things about a world they envision and seek to bring to fruition. The Koch Brothers are generally regarded though, as Right Wing Bogymen. Hillary Clinton mentioned them numerous times on the campaign trail. In reality, I don’t think they should be Right Wing Bogymen, I don’t think anyone should like them.
Fun Fact, there are actually four Koch Brothers and they pronounce it coke. Pretty much any time you hear about the Koch Brothers, when most people or news outlets talk about the “The Koch Brothers,” they are talking about Charles and David. This article will refer to them as the “Koch Brothers too.
David is on the left, he happens to have a slamming "newer model" Wife
The Father of the four brothers started the family's business before WWII. According to Forbes, after all the Sons took over that business but, the other two brothers cashed out after failing to take it over completely. Again, according to Forbes, the four were the second richest family in the U.S. as of 6/29/2016. The combined wealth of the four men was $82 billion and that is heavily weighted to the Koch Brothers' portfolio.
Alone, the Koch Brothers are each ranked as one of the country's top ten richest men. Their company is the second largest privately held company in the nation. Cargill is number one. Their company is called Koch Industries. According to the profile on Bloomberg, their company seems to involve mostly industrial materials but they also have financial operations.
If I were a rich man...
As I stated earlier, they were mentioned by Hildog a bunch of times during the election season. They are yuuge Republican donors and that is a big part of what makes them the Right Wing bogymen. At the same time, there is nothing for anyone to trust about these two. Like (((Sheldon Adleson))), they are perennial donors for the party and "King Makers." The Koch Brothers are also (((very well connected))). Their purchase of TimeInc is weird and interesting.
Jeff Bezos, he owns the Washington Post. He's the number one richest man in the U.S. and he owns the Washington Post. Newspapers, besides losing money, still have a large influence on the public, as do magazines. Bezos owns the WaPo to influence the public. The Koch Brothers are buying Time Magazine's Company, TimeInc, most likely to influence the public. That carge though, has been publicly denied.
Time Magazine looks to be a lowest common denominator type of magazine but it is timely. Time is the opposite of Conservative. In fact, it's progressively degenerating on the population. It is iconic though and hasn't yet lost it's cache'. It inevitably will go out of print. Will the Koch Brothers make it a Conservative Demagogue publication in the meantime? That is what the media outlets and media figures are clucking and worrying about.
Everyone involved in the deal says no, the Koch Brothers will have no influence. Much of the press are still saying yes the Koch Brothers will. The New Yorker had an article yesterday. Someone else had an article about the Time Editor quaking.
It seems like the Koch's would want influence. One reason why they may not though is that they are only really providing funding for a Company called Meredith that is buying the Lion's Share of TimeInc. They are making profit on the money they put up.
Could there be a big Jew behind the curtain???
The Rothchild's Investment Bank is also in on this deal according to Bloomberg. The Brothers are well connected indeed.
There is nothing saying they will or they won't overhaul or influence Time Magazine. Maybe David Koch really just wants to trade in his foxy old younger Wife for a really young Swimsuit Model. TimeInc owns over 100 properties including Sports Illustrated. I would like the Koch Brothers to maybe influence fat chicks out of the magazines. I know I sure don't want to see fat chicks on magazine covers.
"Time" will tell what's going to happen. I know I don't want to see 10 year old trannies on the cover of a magazine unless they're being made fun of or corrected.
