Apple CEO Hobnobs at iGOP Establishment Summit Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, May 12, 2014, 09:23 PM

Apple CEO Tim Cook hosted an iGOP Establishment Summit in Georgia last March.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "For a few days in March, the American Enterprise Institute welcomed scores of business and political leaders to a private annual meeting at a resort on the Georgia coast. But only those who attended know what issues were discussed, strategy planned or promises made. That's because the ground rules for the invitation-only meeting required the participants' confidentiality — even if some were elected leaders, discussing the public's business."

The iGOP Establishment summit discussed strategies to destroy the Tea Party. Sen. Ted Cruz (R.-Tx.) was not invited.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "An impressive array of power attended the conservative think tank's World Forum 2014, according to a printed program first disclosed in late April by the Center for Public Integrity: House Speaker John Boehner and other Republican congressional leaders; potential 2016 GOP presidential hopefuls like Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker; Apple CEO Tim Cook; beer magnate Pete Coors; TD Ameritrade founder-turned-billionaire-conservative activist Joe Ricketts; and executives from multiple venture-capital firms."

The American Enterprise Institute demanded total secrecy for all those in attendance.
