• Corporate Lobbying Exposed | MUST SEE! ᴴᴰ

    Boomtown: Fox News Exposes Corporate Cronyism in Big Government. Critics of Fox News, and conservative pundits like Sean Hannity, argue they are merely shills for corporations and the super-rich. Fox News in particular is accused of promoting right-wing talking points to benefit the uber-wealthy and to prevent big businesses from being held accountable. The primetime special "Boomtown" shows that Fox is a media corporation that will call into critical questioning the seedy relationship between big government and the corporate lobby. This actually happens quite often on Fox Business, particularly on the shows hosted by Neil Cavuto and John Stossel, but this special brought attention to the issue on the flagship network. On the Fox show Hannity, the anchor and talk radio host investigated ...

  • Lobbyists - Bribery is Legal - Lobbyists & Politicians Keeping Each Other Well Fed

    Lobbyists - Bribery is Legal - Lobbyists and politicians are keeping each other well fed. Lobbying, to most people, looks like bribery — the lobbyist who refuses to contribute to the reelection campaign isn’t going to get a meeting, much less an ally. No member of congress wants to feel bought. What they want to feel is convinced. It’s the lobbyist’s job to make the members of congress 'feel' like they're making the right decision, not just the decision they were paid to make. Lobbying, persuasion, or interest representation is the act of attempting to influence the actions, policies, or decisions of officials in their daily life, most often legislators or members of regulatory agencies. Lobbying is done by many types of people, associations and organized groups, including individuals ...

Fox News in particular is accused of promoting right-wing talking points to benefit the uber-wealthy and to prevent big businesses from being held accountable. The primetime special "Boomtown" shows that Fox is a media corporation that will call into critical questioning the seedy relationship between big government and the corporate lobby. This actually happens quite often on Fox Business, particularly on the shows hosted by Neil Cavuto and John Stossel, but this special brought attention to the issue on the flagship network. On the Fox show Hannity, the anchor and talk radio host investigated the outrageous extent that corporate cronyism prevails in the U.S. government. Peter Schweizer, the president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), and Steve Bannon, Breitbart News' Executive Chairman, made a compelling case that corporate fat cats have never had it so good in America, regardless of which party is in charge. Some provocative facts: Every dollar that corporations spent on lobbyists yielded a $220 return, according to a study released in 2004. That is a 22,000% return on investment. 50% of corporations now have an ex-politician on their boards. 30 major corporations spend more on lobbyists than they pay on taxes. Washington D.C. suburbs contain the three richest counties in the United States and 7 of the 10 richest counties. Green energy leader General Electric spends $100,000 every single day to influence and lobby Congress. Half of the Republican members who came to Congress in the famed 1994 "Contract with America" revolution have become lobbyists after leaving Congress. Fox is not the only media corporation to expose such complicity between big government and Wall Street; but it is one of the few media outlets that puts sufficient emphasis on government as the prime mover in the corrupt relationship. It is worth pointing out that the progressive point-of-view that comes through on networks like NBC does not mitigate the problem, but only makes it worse. Without government's power to coerce taxpayers to fund bailouts, pay for corporate and union graft in the form of "stimulus," and subsidize low interest rates and Wall Street booms through monetary inflation, which hurts poor people the most, corporations would be toothless enterprises. They would be forced by the market to offer goods and services at affordable rates or else go bankrupt. Big government is thus the main problem.

Lobbying in the United States describes paid activity in which special interests hire well-connected professional advocates, often lawyers, to argue for specific legislation in decision-making bodies such as the United States Congress. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0812923146/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0812923146&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=499e98e3351ef9914747174226366cf8 It is a highly controversial phenomenon, often seen in a negative light by journalists and the American public, and frequently misunderstood. While lobbying is subject to extensive and often complex rules which, if not followed, can lead to penalties including jail, the activity of lobbying has been interpreted by court rulings as free speech and protected by the US Constitution. Since the 1970s, lobbying activity has grown immensely in terms of the numbers of lobbyists and the size of lobbying budgets, and has become the focus of much criticism of American governance. Since lobbying rules require extensive disclosure, there is a wealth of data in the public sphere about which entities lobby, how, at whom, and for how much. The current pattern suggests much lobbying is done by corporations, although a wide variety of coalitions representing diverse groups is possible. Lobbying happens at every level of government, including federal, state, county, municipal, and even local governments. In Washington, DC, lobbying usually targets congresspersons, although there have been efforts to influence executive agency officials as well as US Supreme Court appointments. It has been the subject of academic inquiry in various fields, including economics, law, and public policy. While lobbyists number of 12,000 people in Washington, DC, those with real clout number in the dozens, and a small group of firms handles much of lobbying in terms of expenditures. As an activity, lobbying takes time to learn, requires skill and sensitivity, depends on deft persuasion, and has much in common with generally non-political activities such as management consulting and public relations. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lobbyists Numerous reports chronicle the revolving door phenomenon.[42] A 2011 estimate suggested that nearly 5,400 former congressional staffers had become federal lobbyists over a ten-year period, and 400 lawmakers made a similar jump.[46] It is a "symbiotic relationship" in the sense that lobbying firms can exploit the "experience and connections gleaned from working inside the legislative process", and lawmakers find a "ready pool of experienced talent."[46] There is movement in the other direction as well: one report found that 605 former lobbyists had taken jobs working for lawmakers over a ten-year period.[46] A study by the London School of Economics found 1,113 lobbyists who had formerly worked in lawmakers' offices.[46] The lobbying option is a way for staffers and lawmakers to "cash in on their experience", according to one view.[28] Before the 1980s, staffers and aides worked many years for congresspersons, sometimes decades, and tended to stay in their jobs; now, with the lure of higher-paying lobbying jobs, many would quit their posts after a few years at most to "go downtown."[28] And it is not just staffers, but lawmakers as well, including high-profile ones such as congressperson Richard Gephardt. He represented a "working-class" district in Missouri for many years but after leaving Congress, he became a lobbyist.[80] In 2007, he began his own lobbying firm called "Gephardt Government Affairs Group" and in 2010 it was earning close to $7 million in revenues with clients including Goldman Sachs, Boeing, Visa Inc., Ameren Corporation, and Waste Management Inc..[80] Senators Robert Bennett and Byron Dorgan became lobbyists too.[81] Mississippi governor Haley Barbour became a lobbyist.[82] In 2010, former representative Billy Tauzin earned $11 million running the drug industry's lobbying organization. called the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America.[80] Many former representatives earned over $1 million in one year, including James Greenwood and Daniel Glickman. When getting access is difficult, there are ways to wear down the walls surrounding a legislator. Jack Abramoff explained: Access is vital in lobbying. If you can't get in your door, you can't make your case. Here we had a hostile senator, whose staff was hostile, and we had to get in. So that's the lobbyist safe-cracker method: throw fundraisers, raise money, and become a big donor. —Lobbyist Jack Abramoff in 2011 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lobbying_in_the_United_States

On January 8, 2001, Abramoff left Preston Gates to join the Government Relations division of the Washington, D.C. law firm Greenberg Traurig. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1936488442/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1936488442&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=cb0a7781b44f5bed11c7fc696a46911e It once described him as "directly involved in the Republican party and conservative movement leadership structures" and "one of the leading fund raisers for the party and its congressional candidates". With the move to Greenberg Traurig, Abramoff took as much as $6 million worth of client business from his old firm, including the Marianas Islands account. At Greenberg Traurig, Abramoff recruited a team of lobbyists known familiarly as "Team Abramoff". The team included many of his former employees from Preston Gates and former senior staffers of members of Congress. Around the time he joined Greenberg Traurig, Abramoff's choice of lobbying clients changed to focus much more on Native American tribes. While Abramoff was a registered lobbyist for 51 clients while working at Preston Gates, with only four being tribes, Abramoff would eventually represent 24 clients for whom he was registered lobbyist at Greenberg Traurig, of which seven were tribes. Former White House Deputy Counsel Timothy Flanigan left his job in December 2002 to work as General Counsel for Corporate and International Law at Tyco International. He immediately hired Abramoff to lobby Congress and the White House on matters relating to Tyco's Bermuda tax-exempt status.[46] Flanigan stated to the Senate Judiciary Committee that Abramoff "bragged" that he could help Tyco avoid tax liability aimed at offshore companies because he "had good relationships with members of Congress".[47] Tyco Inc. claimed in August 2005 that Abramoff had been paid $1.7 million for "astroturfing", or the creation of a fake "grassroots" campaign to oppose proposals to penalize US corporations registered abroad for tax reasons. The work allegedly was never performed, and most of the fee Tyco paid Abramoff to lobby against the legislation was "diverted to entities controlled by Mr. Abramoff". Abramoff's team represented the government of Malaysia, and worked toward improving Malaysian relations with the United States, particularly with trade relations.[48] Abramoff also met with the government of Sudan, offering a plan to deflect criticism from American Christian groups over the regime's alleged role in the Darfur conflict. Abramoff promised to enlist Reed to assist, as well as starting a grassroots campaign to improve the image of Sudan in America. Abramoff maintained four skyboxes at major sports arenas for political entertaining at a cost of over $1 million a year. Abramoff hosted many fundraisers at these skyboxes including events for politicians publicly opposed to gambling, such as John Doolittle.[53] Then Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member and current Chairman Max Baucus returned $18,892 in contributions that his office found to be connected to Abramoff. Included in the returned donations was an estimated $1,892 that was never reported for Baucus' use of Abramoff's skybox at a professional sports arena and concert venue in downtown Washington in 2001.[54] Abramoff also was co-owner of Signatures Restaurant, a high-end Washington establishment which he used to reward friends and associates. His fellow lobbyist Kevin A. Ring treated Justice Department official Robert E. Coughlin to free tickets to the skyboxes and took him out to Signatures multiple times in exchange for favors.[55] The restaurant, once thriving, was closed once investigations closed in on Abramoff. DeLay, Ney and Florida Republican Representative Tom Feeney have each gone on golf trips to Scotland that were apparently arranged or funded by Abramoff. These trips took place in 2000, 2002 and 2003. Ney and Feeney each claimed that their trips were paid for by the National Center for Public Policy Research, but the group denied this. Spokespeople for Ney and Feeney blamed others for filing errors. Ney later pleaded guilty to knowing that Abramoff had paid for the trip. A former top procurement official in the Bush administration, David H. Safavian, has been convicted of lying and obstruction of justice in connection with the Abramoff investigation. Safavian, who traveled to Scotland with Reed and Ney on a golf outing arranged by Abramoff, was accused of concealing from federal investigators information about Abramoff's plans to do business with the General Services Administration at the time of the golf trip — in particular, seeking help finding property for his private religious school, Eshkol Academy, and for one of his tribal clients. Safavian was then GSA chief of staff. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Abramoff

Lobbyists - Bribery is Legal - Lobbyists and politicians are keeping each other well fed. Lobbying, to most people, looks like bribery — the lobbyist who refuses to contribute to the reelection campaign isn’t going to get a meeting, much less an ally. No member of congress wants to feel bought. What they want to feel is convinced. It’s the lobbyist’s job to make the members of congress 'feel' like they're making the right decision, not just the decision they were paid to make. Lobbying, persuasion, or interest representation is the act of attempting to influence the actions, policies, or decisions of officials in their daily life, most often legislators or members of regulatory agencies. Lobbying is done by many types of people, associations and organized groups, including individuals in the private sector, corporations, fellow legislators or government officials, or advocacy groups (interest groups). Lobbyists may be among a legislator's constituencies, meaning a voter or bloc of voters within their electoral district, or not; they may engage in lobbying as a business, or not. Professional lobbyists are people whose business is trying to influence legislation, regulation, or other government decisions, actions, or policies on behalf of a group or individual who hires them. Individuals and nonprofit organizations can also lobby as an act of volunteering or as a small part of their normal job (for instance, a CEO meeting with a representative about a project important to their company, or an activist meeting with their legislator in an unpaid capacity). Governments often define and regulate organized group lobbying that has become influential.
