3/6 Mike Lofgren: Anatomy of the Deep State

March 6, 2014

Former Republican Congressional and author of The Party Is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got Shafted staffer Mike Lofgren explains the Deep State is, the power of corporate special interests in Washington, how the 1980s unleashing of Wall Street set the stages for the growth of the Deep State, how the terrorist attacks of September 11 speeded up the process, Silicon Valley’s central role in corporate influence in Washington, why the Deep State loves trade deals, how the Deep State perpetuates itself and what we can do to radically reform government.

The Senate with seven Democrats going along with all Senate Republicans shamelessly rejects President Obama’s pick to head the Civil Rights division of the Justice Department.

On The Fun Half: Sean Hannity totally wrong on New York crime rate under Bill de Blasio, did the Pope just endorse civil unions, majority of Americans support marriage equality, Tom Harkin calls out the disgusting Senate rejection of Debo Adegbile and your IMs.
