Follow the money. When nothing else makes sense, follow the money.
Thanks to the mysterious character related to Watergate known as “Deep Throat,” the phrase “follow the money” has become a way to trace motivation for various people’s actions. Money, after all, more or less makes the world of politics go ’round, and the promise of it – and funding of political campaigns – can make “lawmakers” do things that truly are not in the best interests of the nation.
Enter the Koch Brothers, some of the more prominent members of the political donor class who can get politicians to sit up and beg better than a dog handler at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
The Kochs, long accused of being the force behind Republican efforts in the free trade arena, as well as serious backers of amnesty and open borders, have announced that they will be backing Democrats in the 2020 election season. Of course, there are strings attached.
In a memo to its staff, the Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP) organization announced that the economic libertarian group is set to back any elected official in Washington, DC, — including Democrats — who support their agenda of amnesty for illegal aliens and endless free trade, and oppose the GOP voter-preferred economic nationalist agenda of less immigration and tariffs to protect American jobs.
The memo read:
The threat of being primaried prevents policymakers from leading on difficult issues and driving principled policy reforms. AFP or AFP Action will be ready to engage contested U.S. Senate, U.S. House, and state-level primary races, including Republican, Democrat, Independent or otherwise, to support sitting legislators who lead by uniting with others to pass principled policy and get good things done. [Emphasis added]
The Koch effort to financially support pro-amnesty, anti-economic nationalist Democrats would come to fruition through the creation of multiple issue-specific Political Action Committees (PACs), all under the larger Koch network umbrella.

And so the big money behind the Republicans switches sides to join George Soros and what is left of the Rockefeller syndicate to back Democrats.
Follow the money. The donors have more of it than the rest of us. Ever wonder how that happened?
