At a secretive, high-security gathering in Palm Springs, Calif., last weekend, Charles Koch urged wealthy conservative donors to be less secretive. “Everybody, come out and identify yourself because this isn’t some secret cabal,” Koch said. “I’ve been identified lately, and it’s not so bad.” Koch said he had four goals to change the trajectory of American government and society, the Hill reported: “Reverse the policies that are moving us toward a two-tiered society,” which include corporate welfare; end “irresponsible government spending”; refocus government on its “primary responsibility to people,” which is to “keep Americans safe”; and protect free speech, which is “under attack everywhere.” – Phillip Brownlee
