Golden Anniversaries Abound: The [Lewis] Powell Memorandum And Attack On America (August 30, 2021)

. . .

K          “Okay, so it was fifty years and a week ago.  A lot of stuff happened in 1971.”  

J          “Do even nine folks remember his screed and frontal assault on democracy?”

. . .

K          “Appointments to the Supreme Court have always had an element of partisan politics.  Lewis Powell was a lobbyist for corporatist interests who became one of the first appointments who then served as a lobbyist for corporatist interests while on the bench.” 

J          “The courts from the Supremes on down are falling down and failing we the people.”
