Are We At "Peak" Citizen's United?

Thom plus logo Donald Trump has corrupted pretty much every federal agency, but the one that is most concerning is his corruption of the Department of Justice. Bill Barr, in 1992, ran the cover up of the Iran/Contra treason scandal on behalf of George HW Bush and Ronald Reagan. Now he's running, according to Lev Parnas, multiple coverups for Donald Trump. From every federal agency, to every member of the House and Senate, to the Vice Presidency, Donald Trump has corrupted them all. He's able to do this because in 1976 and 1978 the Supreme Court legalized billionaires and corporations owning politicians, and the Republican Party put out a "for sale" sign.

The big corporations and oligarchs don't just own the politicians now, they own the media outlets, the television stations, the radio stations, the television networks, and a massive number of major Internet sites. One of the biggest oligarchs, Mark Zuckerberg, has directed Facebook to allow Donald Trump's ads filled with naked lies in them to continue without restriction.

At every level our republic has been corrupted by massive amounts of money legalized by the Supreme Court in 1976 in 1978. It gave birth to the Reagan Revolution, it was cemented into law with Citizens United, and if we don't act soon it will destroy this nation.

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
