REAL Americans Begin the Fight to Re-Claim Our Country

Jerry McConnell · Apr. 8, 2014

Just recently while I was gathering notes here and there in an effort to truthfully inform my readers of what is happening to our beloved country and not the ruinous, distortioning terms of the far left – I mean VERY FAR LEFT – I came upon an online column by Larry Kudlow for MoneyNewss.com, published on April 04, 2014 titled, “Charles Koch Fights Back” and it struck me that everything that I had been seeking was staring straight at me.

Larry (formally) Lawrence Kudlow of Creators Syndicate, Inc. and www.creators.com along with CNBC is a fair-minded person who, as he says in his mini-bio for the website has “always tried to represent all points of view… I have tried to listen and learn and debate both my liberal and my conservative friends.”

Mr. Ludlow’s very interesting column as mentioned in my opening paragraph reminded me of a column I wrote which was published in the March 24, 2014 online edition of the Canada Free Press that covered the well known industrialist, Charles Koch and the barrage of criticism leveled at him and his business partner and brother for Koch Industries.

The fact that Charles Koch chose to combat the nefarious liar, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Democrat from Nevada, was what I had been hoping to hear about and to feast my eyes on, and there it was on MoneyNews.com.

Unlike Mr. Kudlow, I do not represent all points of view; I merely report and comment on all points. I save my loyalties for the conservative point of view. And there online was the article named above with Kudlow giving Mr. Koch some very high-minded and conservative support for the “brilliant Wall Street Journal op-ed by Charles Koch… and the continued sluggish recovery in jobs, business investment, and the overall economy.”

Kudlow opened his support by stating, “Mr. Koch seems to make a plea for a big dose of free-market capitalism. He argues, ‘The central belief and fatal conceit of the current administration is that you are incapable of running your own life, but those in power are capable of running it for you. This is the essence of big government and collectivism.’”

Kudlow went on to point out that “Charles Koch and his brother David have been vilified by the left for fighting hard to get political candidates with free-market points of view elected. Protected by U.S. Senate rules against libel, Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid has called the Kochs virtually every name in the book – including ‘un-American.’ But now the Kochs are fighting back. And I hope they do more of it.”

It isn’t often I get to see two big-name personalities in a discussion of a matter that I had just the week before covered in the Canada Free Press. Not that their discussion was about something that I had written, but the subject matter was the same.

Kudlow went on in obvious praise by remarking, “Charles Koch’s op-ed reveals a consistency of thought. He writes, ‘I have spent decades opposing cronyism and all political favors, including mandates, subsidies and protective tariffs – even when we benefit from them. I believe that cronyism is nothing more than welfare for the rich and powerful, and should be abolished.’



"Koch concludes that the current batch of administration policies ‘destroys value, raises costs, hinders innovation and relegates millions of citizens to a life of poverty, dependency and hopelessness.’”



As if to spotlight his conservatism in the article Larry Kudlow made his mark with this note, “This is strong stuff. And spot on. Think of Obamacare as the ultimate central-planning, collectivist, big-government approach. The government is mandating what health-care insurance to buy, and taxing you if you don’t buy it. You may lose your favorite doctor or hospital or insurance plan, all while job hiring and work effort are undermined. These intellectual eggheads tell you what you can and cannot do, and where you can and cannot do it. And they prescribe a multi-trillion-dollar government expansion of spending and taxing while they’re at it.”


 
Having put his shoulder up alongside Koch’s to brace his support, Kudlow said that “Mr. Koch’s big fear is that collectivism can’t and won’t stop with Obamacare. He has a point. The Obama machine continues to roll out poverty-trap incentives, paying people not to work. Obama’s EPA is aiming to obliterate the entire coal industry and all the blue-collar workers in it. The president can’t even give the okay to the Keystone pipeline, which is favored by all but the far-Left environmental radicals. Obama’s National Labor Relations Board now wants to unionize college football players. Our corporate tax rates are the highest in the world. And the entire IRS tax system is so corrupt and complex, it has become a major hindrance to growth.”

All points on which I have spoken out against Mr. Obama at various times in my columns for Canada Free Press and which I will continue, with or without Larry Kudlow’s help.
