Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also

The Koch Brothers have laid up quite a store of treasure, and through the use of that treasure, the power to control and manipulate our national, state and local governments.

Their hearts are not focused upon what is best for the people; only what is best for Koch. They have spent their treasure financing the Tea Party movement and the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation to promote the reduction of governmental protections and oversight.

A November 2000 CBS news story: Blood and Oil and Environmental Negligence

But in December 1999, the jury found that Koch Industries did steal oil from the public and lied about its purchases – 24 thousand times. The oil theft conviction was a heavy blow, but the troubles of Koch Industries don’t stop there. If the company was fattening its bottom line through theft – there is also evidence Koch was pinching pennies on safety and environmental protection – cutting costs with disastrous results.

Former EPA administrator Carol Browner announced in 2000 that she was hitting Koch Industries with the largest civil penalty in the history of the federal Clean Water Act: a $30 million fine.

She said, Koch Industries spilled over 3 million gallons of crude oil in six states

Koch pipelines make up the largest oil and gas network in the nation. The EPA complaint targeted more than 300 oil spills, some poisoning fisheries and drinking water.

Today, under the influence of Koch Treasure, governments in this country, at all levels, are dismantling environmental and public safety agencies and boards.

Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Matthew 6:21
