Hart : Carter slams U.S. Supreme Court for its endorsement of corruption

Carter expressed his hope that “the Supreme Court will reverse that stupid ruling”

I have often said and written that in some important respects America is the least democratic country in the world because what passes for democracy there is for sale to the highest bidders (the Zionist lobby being one of them).

It’s now apparent that former President Jimmy Carter agrees.

In his latest Conversation at the Carter Center, he said:

You know how much I raised to run against Gerald Ford? Zero. You know how much I raised to run against Ronald Reagan? Zero. You know how much will be raised this year by all presidential, Senate and House campaigns? $6 billion. That’s 6,000 millions.” (It was “zero” from private donors, corporates and individuals, because Carter accepted public funding).

That was part of his devastating indictment of the U.S. electoral process which, he said, “is shot through with financial corruption that threatens American democracy.” He added: We have one of the worst election processes in the world right here in the United States of America, and it’s almost entirely because of the excessive influx of money.”

And that’s because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 ruling that gave unlimited freedom to special interest groups, which represent the wishes and demands of corporations and lobbyists of all kinds, to provide unlimited campaign funding to third-parties that don’t have to disclose their donors. (The Supreme Court justified its decision on the grounds that the First Amendment of the American Constitution prohibited government from restricting independent political expenditures by corporations and unions).

Carter expressed his hope that “the Supreme Court will reverse that stupid ruling,”

President Obama is on the record in a chat with the internet community Reddit as saying that if the Supreme Court does not re-visit the issue, he will seek to challenge its ruling by pushing for a constitutional amendment.

(Right now Obama’s concern is obviously aggravated by the fact that a handful of conservative billionaires – some if not all of them rabid supporters of the Zionist state of Israel right or wrong – are pumping in hundreds of millions of dollars to saturate media markets in vital swing states.

They seem to share one of the ideas that drove Adolf Hitler’s propaganda maestros – no matter how big the lie, the more you tell it, the more likely it is to be believed. Zionism knows that to be true).

There is also support for Carter and Obama’s contempt for the Supreme Court ruling from Judge Richard Posner. He is a highly respected member of the Chicago-based Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, widely regarded as his nation’s most prolific jurist-academic and seen by some as the most influential judge outside of the nine members of the Supreme Court.

What has he said? This:

Our political system is pervasively corrupt due to our Supreme Court taking away campaign-contribution restrictions on the basis of the First Amendment.”

In a recent National Public Radio interview Judge Posner also expressed a degree of contempt for what he described as the “real deterioration in conservative thinking” in recent years. He added: “I’ve become less conservative since the Republican Party started becoming goofy.” (From my side of the water it seems that if Romney’s funders fail in their efforts to buy the White House for him, the Republican Party will have no future unless its moderate, old-fashioned conservatives break away from the “goofy” extremists who have taken over the party machine).

It might well be that a second-term Obama will seek to mobilize support for a constitutional amendment to enable the Supreme Court’s ruling to be reversed, but his chances of success on that front would be poor to say the least because a constitutional amendment requires ratification by three-quarters of the country’s 50 states.

As I write I am reminded (as I noted in my book Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews) that President Kennedy tried and failed several times to introduce legislation to end the corruption of election campaign funding; and I can almost hear some of my readers saying, “Yes, and look what happened to him!”

    Alan-please stop bashing the super cream Judges " that’s because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 ruling' And would like to explain how LBJ, NIxon and Bush's and Reagan and that clown Billy Goat Clinton got in–prior to 2010–only public money you said :^(
     I like Jimmy–he made one mistake–wanted Israel to treat palestinians as humans. He sure got the shaft–one term–Iran hostage capper, 21% interest rates and high gas prices. Once Bush CIA/Reagan took over–Bingo! Normal happy days

    obviously the Pharisees and moneychangers exhibit the behaviour and mannerisms of their progenitor just as Jesus proclaimed.
    the nature and character of the parties acting in covinous collusion to subvert truth and justice is a function of the currency printers and media owners who also operate a crackhouse [KOSHER BROTHEL] called CONgress and subvert the Republic with porch monkeys called "President{s}", although W was/is a legitimate moron.

    America The Prostrate

    In a simplistic sort of way,
    across a desert lit by the moon.
    America lay prostrate,
    lulled by prosperity’s tune.

    Beautiful thing in a world gone mad,
    everyone knows the lies being spoke.
    They spill from the mouths of bankrupt souls,
    leaderless people, morally broke.

    The globe spins on, a compact disc,
    television soothes the planet.
    Hard drives quietly think away,
    politicians run the gamut.

    Prostrate pricks, sucking away,
    at America’s aging tit.
    Pay up now, or go to jail,
    they care less, how you take the hit.

    They act as if it will never end,
    the Nazis felt much the same.
    Fortify your home, your town,
    these criminals have no real shame.

    The knock on the door will surely come,
    midnight terror of the state.
    Theft, lies, fraud and deceit,
    social incubators of pure hate.

    Hang from a rope, they surely will,
    These prophets of civic duty.
    After the riots, the death, the trials,
    before these pirates split the booty.

    What scares me more is the downplaying of the religious aspect, and I don't think on the recent idiotic video, but in the USA in general, that is not taken in or talked about, at all.   There is no end to the polarizations, marginalizing and a constant barage of a Cut and Paste reality that DON'T exist, only thru a highly biased Media(MSM). The marginalizations is played hard, and the visuals images 24/7, all about the various teams on Whom is a Threat to us all. And the frightening aspect of this is rascism. And all the dogmas presented by marginal interest groups are smeared out in medias, exagerated to justify evil means, like wars and the plundering of resources and land. All done with their Gods in their hands, how convenient. I judge you by the way you dress, the way you talk, the way you treat your Wife, children, animals, the property, sanitation. Are there any religions involved in this, no. Race. no, creed, I can asure you I dont give a fu.. but the comparelizimnent of dogmas regarding the various races are complelty false, and even Black people are spewing hate against white. You are scum, as the white supremacy are scum, all of you asume the race is important, well its not, no more imporatant or siginficant than the color of your eyes.   Peace PS: I am from Nothern Europa, I can document that in scandinavia, but I look like a Basq, panjemajo.
