November Surprise! Koch Brothers, Waltons Funding Honduran Caravan

Written by Ralph E. Shaffer

The NY Times, on Sunday, revealed that it isn't George Soros who is funding the caravan of several thousand Honduran migrants, including violent criminals, gang members, rapists and murderers, that have become the key issue in President Donald Trump's midterm election speeches.

In an impeccably researched article written by veteran Times reporter Ricardo Lopez-Nepa, the Times released photocopies of over a million dollars in checks written on accounts controlled by the Waltons and the Koch brothers. According to the Times, much of the money went to Honduran members of MS-13, who agreed to send some of their most violent members north with the caravan. Key members of the Honduran government were complicit in the arrangement, even releasing some gang members from prison so that they could participate in the march.

The Times learned of the plot when an unidentified Honduran government official released copies of the checks and other information to Wikileaks, which then forwarded the information to Lopez-Nepa, who then confirmed that the bank accounts were indeed controlled by the Waltons and Kochs.

President Trump, when asked by a Times reporter about the plot, denied any knowledge of it, but later in a campaign speech in support of a Republican congressional candidate in Badwater, Georgia, he made no reference to immigration or the Honduran caravan, but warned voters to be wary of fake news from the Times.
