VIDEO & Article: Former president Jimmy Carter said Tuesday on the nationally-syndicated radio show The Thom Hartmann Program that the United States is now an “oligarchy” in which “unlimited political bribery” has created “a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors.” Both Democrats and Republicans, Carter said, “look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves.”

Carter was responding to a question from Hartmann about recent Supreme Court decisions on campaign financing like Citizens United.


HARTMANN: Our Supreme Court has now said, “unlimited money in politics.” It seems like a violation of principles of democracy … your thoughts on that?

CARTER: It violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system. Now it’s just an oligarchy, with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or to elect the president. And the same thing applies to governors and U.S. senators and congressmembers. So now we’ve just seen a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect and sometimes get favors for themselves after the election’s over … The incumbents, Democrats and Republicans, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Somebody’s who’s already in Congress has a lot more to sell to an avid contributor than somebody’s who’s just a challenger.

    This is rich. From the peanut farmer who elevated the National Security Advisor to cabinet level status, and brought the globalist Brzezinski and Rockefeller’s trilateralists into the government.

    Carter was present at the creation of this drive to establish a grand new global vision with his trilateralist buddies.

    What did you think Jimmy? That Rockefeller and his banking buddies were all in it because they loved humanity?

    You clown. Thanks for selling us out.

    The traitor is just doing what he’s always done. Run cover for the dissolution of the US and it’s incoporation into the grand global government, with wealth redistribution for all.
