    Got this Petition in an eMail and thought I'd pass it along for your consideration along with some notes.

    Just some background in case anybody has been asleep about the GOP as a Front for the Corporate Company Stores; FOX News Network as their propaganda arm with ties to the Koch Brothers whose Father made a fortune between 1929 - 1932 in the Soviet Union building Oil cracking units (a.k.a. oil refineries) which are used for turning crude oil into gasoline.

    Fred Koch would later become a co-founder of the Far-Reactionary-Right group The John Birch Society, basically a spin-off organization keeping McCarthyism alive, which helped scare Conservative Reactionaries into thinking there were Communist (Socialist; Liberal) Plots behind every tree of any Person, Group or Idea (like Civil Rights or Unions) that they opposed. Imagine an Oil Billionaire opposing the American People's right to Unionize for better working and safety conditions.

    Just One note about Koch Industries:

    In March 1999, Koch Petroleum Group acknowledged that it had negligently dumped hundreds of thousands of gallons of aviation fuel into wetlands from its refinery in Rosemount, Minnesota, and that it had illegally dumped a million gallons of high-ammonia wastewater onto the ground and into the Mississippi River. Koch Petroleum paid a $6 million fine and $2 million in remediation costs, and was ordered to serve three years of probation.--Wikipedia

    If the Koch brothers are making around $1.8million dollars an hour (each), that would be like you or me paying a fine of $60 for dumping the oil from changing the oil in our car into our neighbor's back yard. Making $1.8million dollars an hour is what allows you to buy off Politicians, Judges and the Political Appointees of the Environmental Protection Agency.

    Lastly, I add a piece about the Keystone XL Pipeline which is so often associated with the Koch brothers' name. "XL" stands for "eXport Limited." And there is one of my main concerns after all the environmental concerns' dust gets settled, is, will the Oil flowing through the XL Pipeline really be just a Ruse about helping ease the U.S.'s energy needs, or is that oil already earmarked for Foreign Export for higher profits?

    We are talking about those Good Ol' Boys honest Oil Men here aren't we.

    So who is manipulating the Preacher$ to get their congregations to Vote for "Right to Life" and "school prayer" Candidates whom are really just Front men for the "Right to Die by Cancer" biggest toxic polluters in the Nation. And then, even, the Donation$ to the Preacher$ is Tax Deductible. The Perfect political $cam.

    Has anybody yet realized the Climate Change argument is a Distraction. The Real Problem is the very water and the air your children drink and breath.

    Subject: Fox News: Stop hiding your employees' Koch ties

    CREDO action
    The Koch brothers are using Fox News employees as campaigners

    Tell Fox News:
    "It’s outrageous that Fox News hosts are campaigning for the Koch brothers without disclosing their massive conflict of interest on air. Publicly disclose your hosts’ campaign activities on behalf of the Koch brothers and other right-wing extremists."

    Dear ________,
    Stop the Kochs

    The Koch brothers are spending enormous amounts of money to buy the 2014 election and engineer a Tea Party takeover of the Senate -- but of course you wouldn’t know it from watching Fox News.

    "Who's ever heard of Charles and David Koch? Is this really going to move voters? ... This really is telling of the global warming cult….It's a form of -- it's a form of social control," said Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.

    “It is almost McCarthyistic, the types of things you hear from the Senate floor about two Americans who are expressing the First Amendment rights,” quipped contributor Greg Gutfeld.

    What else you wouldn’t know from watching Fox News: That these same on-air personalities who are posing as objective news reporters are actively campaigning for the Kochs.

    That’s just egregiously shameful. Fox New should disclose their hosts campaign activities for the Koch’s when they report on them. Click here to automatically sign the petition.

    This isn’t just a few folks. According to a recent report by watchdog group Media Matters, "At least 15 Fox News hosts and contributors have recently campaigned with two political organizations created and heavily funded by billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch. Many of those same Fox News personalities have also defended the Kochs from attacks and praised their political efforts on-air.”1

    The Koch brothers plan to spend nearly $300 million dollars this election cycle to elect Republican candidates that will do everything in their power to destroy our social safety net and wage a War on Women.2 Worse, much of their influence is invisible because it’s being filtered through a huge network of front-groups — and because the Koch brothers friends on Fox News help keep this network concealed and downplay the scale of the Kochs’ spending.3

    That’s why it’s so damaging to have the very same people who are headlining Koch brothers events in battleground states also reporting on the Koch brothers on air.

    Tucker Carlson spoke at Koch events in Montana and North Carolina. Greg Gutfield spoke at a Koch event in Florida. Dana Parino, who spoke at a Koch event in Arkansas, called a Koch-funded ad “devastating” during an on-air appearance, and even promoted Americans for Prosperity’s list of things conservatives can do to celebrate Earth Day.

    Fox News’ propaganda machine only works if we remain silent.

    Tell Fox News: Publicly disclose your hosts’ campaign activities on behalf of the Koch brothers and other right-wing extremists. Click the link below to automatically sign the petition:

    Koch Brothers Exposed video blocked again:


    Found it interesting that all of a sudden the Koch Brothers Exposed video came up Blocked/banned.

    Note: in "Copy" right Law the Public, which Grants copyright to authors (video creators & music composers) in the first place, has the "Right" to make reproductions of "copy" for both "Educational Use" and "Personal Use."

    If this Koch Brothers video has not been posted for "Educational Use" then nothing else on Earth is out there for "Educational Use" either.

    Here it is again, for "Educational Use."


    (NOTE: if you cannot click on this link, highlight it and then Ctrl C and place it in your Address Bar with Ctrl V or also Google YouTube, Koch Brothers Exposed to find it)

    In this case ALL YouTube videos are the video "Copy" in the noun in the legal term "Copy-right" and ALL YouTube video Copy is subject to Reproduction for "Educational" or "Personal" "Use" by We The People whom Grant Text/"copy" right through Article I. Section 8. of the Constitution in the first place. For without We The People's Grant of Text/"copy" right protection authors would HAVE NO PROTECTION against Corporate, Publisher, Music Industry or Government Piracy and Suppression which was the Original Intention of the Constitution's Article I. Section 8., no matter the "Improper Copyright Notice" legal CANARDS of Corporations, Publishers, Software companies, the Music Industry or Governments or SOPA Multinational (Corporate Front) Trade Organizations which have no Rights mentioned in the Constitution, at all, to suppress either "Educational" or "Personal" "Use" of "Reproduction" of "Copy."


    And here is why Multinational Corporations are trying to use Non-Governmental Trade Organizations and Trade Agreements to use Improper Copyright Notice to Get Around you Constitutional Rights:
