Democrats hate the idea that the First Amendment does not explicitly restrict the right of corporations to free speech. In order to address this perceived flaw, Rep. Hank Johnson, a Georgia Democrat, has proposed amending the Constitution.
“We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations,” said Johnson at the Annesbrooks HOA candidate Forum in Georgia in October (see video below).
“These corporations, along with the people they support, other millionaires who they’re putting into office, are stealing your government. They’re stealing the government and the U.S. Supreme Court was a big enabler with the Citizens United case,” he said.
“They control the patterns of thinking,” Johnson continued. “They control the media. They control the messages that you get. So, you are being taught to hate your government – don’t want government, but keep your hands off of my Medicare by the way. I mean, we are all confused people and we’re poking fingers at each other saying, well you’re black, you’re Hispanic, immigration, homosexuals. You know, we’re lost on the social issues, abortion, contraception.
“And these folks are setting up a scenario where they’re privatizing every aspect of our lives as we know it. So, wake up! Wake up! Let’s look at what’s happening. We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations.”
Restricting the First Amendment right of corporations, of course, will do little if nothing to stop the wholesale theft of the United States by transnational corporations and international banksters. It is not the Constitution and the Bill of Rights that have permitted a corporate takeover, but the efforts of Mr. Johnson’s colleagues in the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Both Democrats and Republicans are responsible for this traitorous behavior. “Each party is a machine that vies for power because this power carries with it vast sums of corporate money. The longer a party is in office and the more connections it makes, the more its net worth to corporations, the more that these rewards can be spread to the different layers of the party. There is indeed a real-life, nasty fight between the Republican and Democratic Parties to dominate this corporate money,” writes Shamus Cooke.
“Congressmen who have recently retired make the perfect lobbyists: they still have good friends in Congress, with many of these friends owing them political favors; they have connections to foreign Presidents and Kings; and they also have celebrity status that gives good PR to the corporations,” Shamus explains.
The leader of Johnson’s party, Barack Obama, is an especially egregious whore when it comes to corporate lucre. The international bankster outfit Goldman Sachs came in second on the list of contributors to his 2008 campaign, followed by JP Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, General Electric, Microsoft and other transnational corporations.
In 2007, it was revealed that Democrats received more money from securities and investment firms, banks, insurance companies, and the so-called “defense” industry than the Republicans.
So over the top is the effort to buy the government, it was reported last week that Obama will likely take corporate donations for his January 2013 inaugural celebration, thus adding another glaring aspect to the ongoing effort to turn the United States into a subsidiary of globalist corporations.
It may be, however, unreasonable to believe Rep. Johnson has a handle on all of this. After all, in 2010, he stated in all seriousness that if more troops were sent to Guam, it would cause the island to “tip over” and sink to the bottom of the ocean.
