The Oligarchs are Plotting the Weekend...

by Thom Hartmann posted Jun 22 2012 4:41PM

The oligarchs are meeting this weekend to plot how they’re going to buy the elections this year.  First, Mitt Romney will be hosting a three-day retreat in Utah over the weekend with about 600 hundreds of his biggest fundraisers.  Romney is coming off a good fundraising month in May where his camp outraised the Obama camp $78 million to $60 million.  But the real plans to buy the election are being made in California – not Utah.  In San Diego this weekend, the Koch brothers are hosing their annual political convention aimed at raising nearly a half billion dollars this election to elect corporate Republicans and defeat Progressives.  

That means – between now and November – over a billion dollars in negative ads attacking President Obama and Progressives will flood the airwaves – making corporate media outlets very rich, and poisoning public debate across America.   We’re entering a whole new era in American politics thanks to the Supreme Court.

Listen to me Monday through Friday 3 PM to 6 PM LIVE on WWRL 1600.
