Democrats are hoping it's their turn for a tea party.
PALM SPRINGS, CALIF. --- Deion Sanders is a big fan of the "room full of winners" that billionaire libertarian philanthropist Charles Koch has gathered in the temperate desert outside of Los Angeles. And more specifically, all they've done to support him and his friends help poor kids in dangerous areas.
PALM SPRINGS, CALIF. --- Charles Koch's Seminar Network is prepared to launch digital ads and knock on doors in blue-leaning Trump-voting states in support of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, a number of Koch network lieutenants told reporters Sunday evening.

PALM SPRINGS, CALIF. --- Charles Koch, the 81-year-old billionaire libertarian philanthropist and American industrialist, has no intention of retiring, he told an audience of top conservative and libertarian donors gathered at a conference in Palm Springs. The fight for opportunity, he said Sunday afternoon, is "eternal," adding, "we can never rest."
PALM SPRINGS, CALIF. --- The sprawling libertarian Koch network came out against Trump's executive order banning travel from certain high-risk countries, emailing reporters that it "is the wrong approach and will likely be counterproductive."
PALM SPRINGS, CALIF. --- Criminal-sentencing reform proponents in Congress are "hopeful" that Vice President Mike Pence will be an ally, helping them to work with the new law-and-order administration to pass legislation to cut mandatory minimum sentencing for drug-law offenders.

PALM SPRINGS, CALIF. -- In the temperate desert outside of Los Angeles, Charles and David Koch have orchestrated the largest gathering of their Seminar Network yet held, hosting around 550 men and women who have donated at least $100,000 to the network's libertarian initiatives. And after scaling back early projections on their spending during the 2015-2016 cycle, they intend to ramp up spending on work to build grassroots networks and impact U.S. policy. That spending is expected to rise from the $250 million '15-'16, to an estimated $300-400 million in 2017-2018.
PALM SPRINGS, CALIF. -- Republican Sens. Mike Lee, Pat Toomey and James Lankford are scheduled to attend the kickoff to Charles and David Koch's libertarian Seminar Network in Palm Springs, Calif. on Saturday.
The 16 Most Absurd, Interesting And Beautiful Pieces In The USA’s Official Modern Art Museum [PICTURES]
The Smithsonian National Gallery's East Building, or the modern art museum, is in full swing once again. About $30 million has been spent on updates, like a rooster garden on the roof. Even more was spent on repairing the facade, which, having rejected a thousand years of architectural wisdom, began to fall apart after only three decades.
Oh No: That Other Time A Super-Rich President Appointed Family Advisers To Top Roles In The White House
Donald Trump is not the first president to get a head start from dad, be worth a billion dollars, or even bring members of his nuclear family into the White House as close advisers. Indeed, another president did all of those things -- and not a Founding Father or some forgotten 19th-century bureaucrat, but a television man.
The American citizen currently enjoys greater access to information than any average person in human history. But you wouldn't know that from reading The New York Times, Buzzfeed or any other of the many outlets busying themselves calling for the administration, in concert with corporations, to censor fake news stories.
It's a new day of the week, so there is a new example of media hand-wringing over the president-elect. This time, China. It's a spectacle, watching writers wax apoplectic over Donald Trump taking a phone call from the president of Taiwan, over China's objection and his predecessor's policy of respecting China's feelings.
Cold winds are blowing on America's workers, and no matter what Washington does, it's going to get worse than anything we've ever seen.
No one is listening to reporters these days. Their approval rating sits at an all-time low, their worst nightmares are unfolding before them, and despite their most dire warnings, the American populace is largely unmoved. Why? Panicked clamors instead of measured reporting, shrill cries disguised as honest evaluations, and a level of hyperbole that is simply astonishing.
