- In May of 1886, the Supreme Court granted rights of personhood
to private corporations, with all of the rights of personhood, and virtually
none of the responsibilities. Then in January of 1976 the Supreme
Court added to the already egregious rights of corporations to include:
"that limitations on the use of money for political purposes were
in violation of First Amendment protections for free expression."
- This latter decision destroyed the entire electoral process
of the United States, to the extent that at present, any idea of a balanced
playing field in American politics is completely beyond the realm of possibility.
Indeed that court decision virtually guaranteed the supremacy of major
Capitalistic interests over all other considerations in perpetuity
by virtue of their access to unlimited campaign contributions.
- Critics of this view will argue that these 'decisions'
have been modified, but that's like putting lipstick on a pig. What this
situation calls for is a careful overview of what these changes have
done to the elections process that so many still trumpet, as 'the best
system in the world today.'
- Here's a broad overview of 'our system.' The independent
Central Banks own the multinational corporations who own the markets.
Mixed in with their other holdings are all the major communications networks,
the publishing houses, most of the nation's major newspapers and the Major
Television & Film studios. They also own and control the distribution
of all of the above, as well as the advertising venues and most of the
major think-tanks that are designed to influence public policies. These
are the moneyed interests behind raw unchecked capitalism-and these are
the same people that benefit directly from the above mentioned inane
decisions of the US Supreme Court. Collectively this entire structure
can be thought of as "The Corporatocracy" who got their real
start in 1913: (2)
- In the everyday world of politics and ordinary people,
here's what happens.
- The candidates ask people for money to buy advertising
space and television time, from the Corporatocracy, in order to 'get
elected.' Behind the scenes the Corporatocracy gives tons of bucks to
both major parties. They concentrate on the most likely candidates which
they, through one of their parent-organizations (the Council on Foreign
Relations), have already decided on - as "winners" of the coming
- If we follow the money trail it looks like 'the-Serpent-eating-
it's-Tail.' The money from the Corporatocracy is paid essentially to itself,
to promote their chosen candidates, then re- spent on their own services
to provide the necessary campaign effluvia for the so-called candidates:
With the added sweetener of the money "given" by ordinary citizens
which they will also directly benefit from-when that money too-comes back
to them in the form of more services purchased or provided. This is a
- For decades the best investment in America was a "Campaign
Contribution" to a major government office holder. For every buck
invested in these crooks the return was something like a thousand to
one in perks or contracts. Hence congress has been talking about
campaign-finance reforms since the Supreme's passed the law that opened
the flood-gates for the revolving doors of the Congressional-Corporatocracy-Complex.
But of course nothing has changed-except to intensify their options by
including many thousands of additional lobbyists in the mix of those that
can vastly increase anyone's "investment" when you "give"
to the right man, woman or cause. This garbage is where and how AIPAC
became so powerful so fast!
- If you want a clear idea of how much money we're talking
about in the elections here just add up all the money raised so
far, by all the candidates, and divide that number by the number of votes
cast to this point this will give the prospective voter some idea
of just valuable those first two side-shows are to the Corporatocracy.
- Back in the days of Boss Tweed & the openly corrupt
political machines, many citizens then, were bright enough to demand to
be paid to vote one way or the other-but in this NWO system-the Corporatocracy
has brilliantly figured out how to pay itself, in order to select their
own flunkies to do ever more for themselves while totally shutting out
the electorate in the process.
- Professional political parties are nothing but scavengers
that raid the body-politic for cadavers to pick clean, while they too
practice keeping the public at bay during every presidential political
campaign since 1968 (national security of course). The public no longer
can challenge candidates directly, yet the Corporatocracy has enough financial
muscle to decide who can or will be included in any of the pretend debates.
FOX News "The Fair & Balanced Political Network" just blocked
Ron Paul, despite his position in the field, his track record in congress,
and his amazingly adept skills at raising huge amounts of money
'cause he's NOT one of them, and Paul has not been sanctioned to run by
the CFR, so 'nobody cares what he thinks!' (3)
- Slowly the public might begin to get the idea that their
"politics" have been hijacked and given over to those International
Outlaws that run the bulk of the Corporatocracy-for fun and profit!
- Another glaring facet of the current presidential contest
is that things have changed dramatically since long before the Decider.
Individuals used to run for office, and we still treat candidates that
way-as if they were going to do it all. That's ridiculous! Whereas in
the past, advisors were mere shadows behind the scenes (with the exception
of Henry Kissinger), in today's world these creatures are the government,
not merely talking figure-heads: look at Cheney who is the president,
or Rummy who's still hanging around in the Pentagon, not to mention the
army of spooks from so many different agencies that it boggles the mind
these are the creeps that stay up planning how to destabilize the
planet in 37 different ways each week. So when you "vote" for
one of these show-pieces for "president" who you're really voting
for are the whole cadre of political hacks and unprincipled whores that
work in the shadows of the world-wide power structure. Can you name the
advisors to your prospective "presidential choice"! I doubt
it, so here they are. you can watch a video or read a transcript. (4)
- Throughout the 'American voter' has remained oblivious
to the obvious takeover of the nation, so why would he or she have even
a hint that as sheep - they have been royally and repeatedly screwed
since at least 1976!
- The system isn't just broken it has been smashed into
a million shards of broken dreams and shredded papers-and did I mention
that you and I will get the bill for all of that as well? In case you
were thinking about contacting your congressperson you might want
to lean rather heavily on them about the pending Bill which already passed
the House as HR 1955. It passed 404 to 6, is now pending before the Senate.
What this does is outlaw each and every thing I've said above it
defines "Thought Crime" in the USA for the first time in our
short history, and it criminalizes anyone that might in any way disagree
with the insiders or the Corporatocracy! (5)
- This mini-series of articles was written to call attention
to just how far we've fallen ands since Three Strikes is all anyone
usually gets If you still think
- You can ignore the fact, that the only way to stop the
Corporatocracy is to simply SHUT- THEM- DOWN: Then you must be too far
gone to care whether you will live or die tomorrow! Maybe you should take
the Decider's advice and just go shopping!
