Adjusting To A New White House Press Corps | On Point

In case you hadn’t noticed, White House press briefings these days are not what they used to be. White House spokesman Sean Spicer is ready to mix it up hard with the press corps there. It gets fiery. And the press corps itself is changing. Once-fringe conservative or right-wing outlets are now regularly called on for questions. It changes the tone, the focus. It changes what we learn. What we know. This hour On Point: The White House press corps in the time of Trump. — Tom Ashbrook

Native American Actions in D.C. Target Trump Administration

Headlines Mar 13, 2017

In Washington, D.C., thousands of Native American activists marched to the White House on Friday, protesting the Trump administration’s policies toward indigenous people and its support for the Dakota Access pipeline. Along the march route, protesters erected a giant tipi outside the Trump Hotel to “reclaim stolen land.” This is activist Deborah His Horse is Thunder.

Deborah His Horse is Thunder: “I mean, as Native people, we’ve continued to have our resources extracted. You know, they’re in the process of doing that now with this pipeline, to the detriment or the possible detriment or the very real detriment of loss of clean water. And then what? Nothing is going to survive without water. Nothing.”

The protest came just days after a federal judge ruled against a lawsuit by the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes seeking to halt construction of the last section of the $3.8 billion pipeline, which they say could pollute their main source of drinking water, the Missouri River. The ruling came after President Trump fast-tracked the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines for completion. The company building the Dakota Access pipeline says it expects to pump oil through the pipeline by April 1.


CORPORATE FASCISM: The Destruction of America’s Middle Class


Published on Aug 30, 2011

A new kind of fascism has taken over America: the merger of corporations and government whereby corporate power dominates. With the emergence of ever-larger multinational corporations — due to consolidation facilitated by the Federal Reserve’s endless FIAT money — the corporatocracy has been in a position to literally purchase the U.S. Congress.

A result of the corporate purchase of Congress is that many of the nation’s “laws” have been re-configured to benefit WE THE CORPORATIONS, rather than WE THE PEOPLE. “Laws” like NAFTA and GATT resulted in the outsourcing of the U.S. manufacturing base and the destruction of the Middle Class. This is nothing less than the 1 Percenters abusing the 99 Percenters. Known as “monopoly capitalism,” “crony capitalism,” “mercantilism,” “globalization,” “the new world order,” and/or “free trade” — this is NOT your Grandfather’s capitalism.
