For those who are still suffering the delusion that we do not live under a fascist regime under Barack Obama, with total disregard for the rule of law and Constitutional safeguards for essential rights and liberties, this Glenn Greenwald article should open their eyes. Greenwald is the most intrepid and courageous progressive voice in the media today. The fact that he was targeted in this collusive campaign by the Obama regime and corporate interests for his support for WikiLeaks is very telling.

“But the real issue highlighted by this episode is just how lawless and unrestrained is the unified axis of government and corporate power. I’ve written many times about this issue — the full-scale merger between public and private spheres — because it’s easily one of the most critical yet under-discussed political topics. Especially (though by no means only) in the worlds of the Surveillance and National Security State, the powers of the state have become largely privatized. There is very little separation between government power and corporate power. Those who wield the latter intrinsically wield the former. The revolving door between the highest levels of government and corporate offices rotates so fast and continuously that it has basically flown off its track and no longer provides even the minimal barrier it once did. It’s not merely that corporate power is unrestrained; it’s worse than that: corporations actively exploit the power of the state to further entrench and enhance their power.”
