Thom Hartmann is arguably the most popular progressive talk-show host in America. However, no matter what your political leanings, what this man is saying regarding Corporate Personhood is definitely worth learning about! Review the information below to gain an understanding of this issue.
In these audio and video clips and documents, you will learn of about “the railroaded decision” of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1886 that affects all of us, but that nearly every lawyer in the country to this day gets wrong, at least on the year that the law of the case actually occurred. You’ll also find out about the bribery of Justice Steven Field during the Railroad Tax Cases in the late 19th century that led to the U.S. Supreme Court’s “decision” in the Santa Clara County vs. Southern Pacific Railroad case that changed the legal definition of a person to include corporate persons. Names like John Chandler Bancroft Davis and Morrison Renwick Waite will become important, as will the Lewis Powell memo. The influence of the Federalist Society will also become clearer.
Supreme Court cases like Marbury versus Madison (1803), Bradwell versus Illinois (1873), and Citizen United versus F.E.C (2010), have relevance in this intriguing, unfolding storyline. It’s an important story that every freedom-loving American needs to learn and understand!
