Making sure the Fortune 500 enjoy our right to free speech

Hillary the Movie Trailer

Citizens United (Hillary: the Movie) v. Federal Election Commission

In the world of money and politics, "Hillary: The Movie" may turn out to be the sleeper hit of the year, a boffo blockbuster. Depending on the outcome of a special Supreme Court hearing on September 9th, this little piece of propaganda could unleash a new torrent of cash flooding into campaigns from big business, unions and other special interests. "Hillary: The Movie" may turn out to be "Frankenstein: The Monster."

The film was created by a conservative group called Citizens United. They wanted to distribute the film via on-demand TV and buy commercials to promote those telecasts, but because the film was partially financed by corporate sponsors, the Federal Election Commission said no, that it was a violation of the 2002 Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act -- McCain-Feingold -- which restricts the use of corporate money directly for or against candidates.

Citizens United appealed their case all the way to the Supreme Court, where it was first heard back in March. But the court did an usual thing. They asked for more time and ordered a new hearing and new arguments, almost a month ahead of the first Monday in October that usually marks the official start of the court's annual sessions.

As soon as the NWO clowns that wear black robes (instead of white) get thru propping up their corporate masters and state, AGAIN, that a lifeless corporation has the right to free speech, we can turn out the lights.

"I swear allegiance, to the board of directors, of the United Corporations of America. And to the brazen piracy, lies and thefts for which they stand, one cowed nation, under the whip, with no liberty or justice at all"
