    Because of partisan gridlock in Washington, the Supreme Court has become the most powerful and outspoken branch of government – decisions they make shape our democracy’s fate for generations to come. Now, one has only to look at Bush v. Gore, Citizens United, and the Affordable Care Act rulings to understand why some call it a “one-percent Court” -- dedicated by majority rule to preserving the power and influence of a minority of wealthy special interests. This week on Moyers & Company, The Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel and Jamie Raskin, constitutional law professor and Maryland state senator, join Bill to discuss how the uncontested power of the Supreme Court is changing our elections, our country, and our lives. The two joined forces for a special upcoming issue of The Nation entitled “The One Percent Court.” Also on the program, Bill talks with Craig Unger, author of Boss Rove: Inside Karl Rove’s Secret Kingdom of Power, about Rove’s behind-the-scenes maneuvering and collaborations to once again affect the outcome of a presidential election.

        This week on Moyers & Company (check local listings), The Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel and Jamie Raskin, constitutional law professor and Maryland state senator, join Bill to discuss how the uncontested power of the Supreme Court is changing our elections, our country, and our lives. The two joined forces for a special issue of The Nation entitled “The One Percent Court.” “We wanted to bring attention to how this court has empowered the 1% at the expense of the 99%,” says vanden Heuvel. “How it is now working for big business, for corporate power against the interests of ordinary citizens in this country.” Also on the program, Bill talks with Craig Unger, author of Boss Rove: Inside Karl Rove’s Secret Kingdom of Power, about Rove’s behind-the-scenes maneuvering and collaborations to once again affect the outcome of a presidential election. “Most people thought he was a creature of the Bush family,” Unger tells Bill. “I think he’s a force more powerful than that.”

            As part of the celebration of the 45th anniversary of Kartemquin Films, in October 2011 South Side Projections, the Pullman State Historic Site, and the Bronzeville/Black Chicagoan Historical Society presented a screening of the documentary The Last Pullman Car (1984, Gordon Quinn & Jerry Blumenthal, 16mm) at the historic Clock Tower Building, part of the original Pullman factory complex. Co-directors Gordon Quinn and Jerry Blumenthal, also co-founders of Kartemquin, were present for discussion with former Pullman workers. In 1981, the United Steelworkers Local 1834 tried in vain to keep the Pullman-Standard Company from shutting down its operations in Pullman, putting several hundred people out of work. Kartemquin Films’ compelling documentary The Last Pullman Car concentrates on the workers' plight as their elected officials, the company, and finally the national union seem deaf to their concerns. Set against the history of the struggle between labor and corporations, but as relevant today as it was then, The Last Pullman Car tells yet another story of American industry abandoning our workers and communities. In 2015, President Barack Obama designated Pullman as a national park. To mark this great news, we are now releasing this video online free for 2 months. The discussion covers the making of the film, the fate of the Pullman neighborhood after the factory closed, and the relevance to continues labor and class disputes, such as the Occupy movement and the Citizens United ruling. It can be found, along with many other extras, on the DVD for The Last Pullman Car: https://www.kartemquin.com/films/the-last-pullman-car This video was shot & edited by Ryan Bedore at Kartemquin.

                  SONG LYRICS: I once believed in the USA, with liberty and justice for all, or at least for most, and that’s pretty close, but the number is starting to fall. I once believed a president, who promised to bring change, He spoke rather well, but from what I can tell, he loves Wall Street more than Main. I once believed a preacher, he told me to tithe ten percent so I gave him eleven, for my ticket to heaven, now I just can’t forget to repent. Now I hold just one thing true I believe in me and you I dream of humanity singing silent harmony I once believed in mermaids, Santa Claus, and the Easter Bunny then I got wise, to all of them lies, except for the tooth fairy’s money. I once believed the chimpanzees on the AM radio waves I listened too long, and I got it all wrong, it aint truth, but ratings they crave. I once believed my cable news was totally balanced and fair, they sounded so certain, but behind the curtain, lies the wizard of doctrinaires. [CHORUS] I once believed God made a mistake in creating all the gay Then I friended some queers, and now hold them dear, and welcome them to the buffet. I once believed a patriot, he was one of the chosen few, who fly the same flag, and proudly brag, that we are better than you. I once believed a general, crossing a crumbling bridge, the gas main was leaking, as he was speaking, of a new enemy coming over the ridge. Now I hold just one thing true I believe in me and you I dream of humanity singing silent harmony I dream of you and me singing silent harmony Copyright John Lopker 2012. All Rights Reserved.

                    Citizens United has offered up our democracy to the highest bidder, stifling the voices of the 99%. MONEY ≠ SPEECH and that is exactly the message the Overpass Light Brigade took to Wisconsin drivers over I-43 in Milwaukee. Unless we stop the flow of this "dark money" the will of the people will never be represented. End Citizens United now!
