Koch Brothers Spend $7.2 Billion To Acquire Conglomerate/Drone Manufacturer

 

Molex Incorporated, today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Koch Industries. Molex will become a standalone subsidiary of Koch Industries. Koch Industries will pay approximately $7.2 billion for the firm.

Of note, prominently featured on Molex’s industries page is the conglomerate’s ties to the military-industrial complex:

Aerospace and Defense

By providing faster, smaller, lighter and more cost-effective COTS, harsh environment and military-grade solutions, Molex brings a wide range of technology and innovation to the aerospace and defense industry. Molex continues to develop, an array of integrated and custom solutions to assist in reaching all design goals – with exceptional quality, efficiency and reliability – to ensure seamless connectivity for critical applications.

Will the Koch brothers shut this division down or do they need the cash to add to their billions by becoming part of the military industrial complex? Note, I said shut it down, not sell the division. In my book, selling a military organization, and thus keeping it in tact for someone else to run, is just as evil as running it.

I began filming this after a dozen or so train cars went by on a stretch of track south of Santa Cruz California. Where are the military vehicles going? Why are they being shipped? What could this possibly be for? Barack Obama, what are you up to? We want answers…..

Either way, we are paying for it or now owe more for it.  The military industrial complex that profits from war does not care where the funding comes from, it simply wants more to increase profits.  War is big business, and I am just referring to the manufacturing side that we the people are paying for.  This does not include the opium trafficking that is widely reported on and the horrible loss of life.

Should you ever choose to truly support or great military people you can pass on the cute ribbon decal or bumper sticker.  Show real sincerity, vote to bring the troops home!  There is only one candidate not preaching fear and needless wars, Dr. Ron Paul.
