A pivotal component of the process that manipulates the legislative cover that claims to be representative federalism is the consortium of influential pressure and bribe distributors that populate the lobbying capital of the planet, K Street. This group of ex elected officials, shyster lawyers and con artists make up the revolving door of access and sway that keeps the DC Scalawag Culture Preserves Scoundrels alive and expanding. Corporatist Lobbying Replaced a Free Market long ago. The Camelot dream has become the granddaddy of all extenders. For the updated version of JFK’s Inaugural Address in the era of transnational political ascendancy in the Totalitarian Collectivist un-commonwealth state, take heed.
“Let every Citizen know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of Corporatist Control. To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United, there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided, there is little we can do–for we dare not meet a powerful grass roots populist challenge at odds and split asunder. To those subservient states whom we welcome to the ranks of the New World Order, we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny. We shall not always expect to find them resisting our view. But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own dictates-and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside. To those peoples in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them serve our interests, for whatever period is required–not because the communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is our right to rule. If a globalist society cannot exploit the many who are poor, it cannot protect the few who are rich. To our sister regimes south of our border, we offer a special pledge–to convert our empty words into nefarious deeds–in a new alliance for corporate service–to assist captive men and controlled governments in casting off the chains of abundance. But this peaceful revolution of acquiescence cannot become the prey of hostile powers. Let all our neighbors know that we shall join with them to oppose liberation or self-determination anywhere in the Americas. And let every other power know that this Global Empire intends to remain the master of its own world.
To that world assembly of subservient states, the United Nations, our last best scheme in an age of deception where the instruments of debt have far outpaced the instruments of prosperity, we renew our pledge of support–to prevent it from becoming merely a forum for newspeak–to strengthen its dominance of the new and the weak–and to enlarge the area in which its rule may run.
Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer not a pledge but a guarantee: that opposing factions begin anew their surrender for coexistence, before the NWO powers of destruction unleashed by science destroys all opposition to our planned universal self-destruction.”
The fairy tale of JFK’s world is forever gone. The corporate corruption environment that fuels the lobbyists’ machine would make Jack Abramoff proud. The Hill points the finger squarely at GE who reaps unconscionable Tax extenders a lobbying bonanza from the latest taxpayer abuse passed with overwhelmingly bipartisan support by the House of Representatives.
“Almost 300 of those K Street officials lobbied specifically on a tax break known as the active financing exception, a preference that expired at the end of 2013 and allows financial services companies to defer paying taxes on profits made abroad.
General Electric, the study says, was among the most persistent company lobbying for the break – perhaps not surprising, given that GE has said its tax bill will rise significantly without the exception.”
….When separate and often conflicting legislation is bundled together to be pushed through in lame duck sessions, the meaning of election consequences blur. The Text of the Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014 is a disgrace.
Radical Reactionary readers know that the GOP has no real conservative principles or guts to close the door on the corporatists. The essay, “House Democrats Sell Out And Back GOP Tax Extenders Bill– So Why Should Anyone Vote For A Democrat”, concludes “All that Democratic support in the House makes it more difficult for any grouping of principled Democrats in the Senate to kill this travesty.” The lobbyists know that Business as Usual still operates.
