Charles Koch’s Network and Supreme Court Influence

( – Based on prior instances in which legacy outlets were shown to have colluded with the Biden administration on any number of policies, one can be forgiven for wondering if recent stories critical of Charles Koch were run at the behest of the White House. Whether that is or isn’t the case, the legendary conservative billionaire is set to take on a host of federal regulations at the nation’s highest court, much to the apparent chagrin of the left.

Mainstream outlets are uniformly running stories that paint the industrial titan in a negative light. According to one such report, “the Koch network” is an interconnected web of rightwing organizations that is currently “spearheading the attack on federal agencies and government regulations.”

Among many others, The Guardian suggests that Charles Koch has been nefariously working under the radar to land cases at the Supreme Court that will benefit his business interests and damage both the environment and the American consumer. According to the outlet, Koch’s efforts “could undermine” a large number of the government’s “core functions.”

Their report suggests that groups working on behalf of Koch are looking “to exploit” the “rightwing majority” in the Supreme Court. Following former President Trump’s three appointments, conservative justices outnumbered their liberal counterparts by six to three. Their standing is a testament to how the policies of past presidents can linger in the justice system for decades.

According to the Guardian’s October 26th piece, groups tied to Koch entities are planning what the outlet refers to as an “assault” on the Biden administration’s “administrative state.” Big business interests aside, many voters are furious with actions the White House has taken that appear designed to stifle personal freedom in the name of climate protection.

Groups backed by Koch challenge some of those protections in two separate but similar cases during the Supreme Court’s next term. Both are related to fishing industry restrictions.
