Donald Trump’s election was considered the beginning of a dark era for the entire planet, but could it possibly be the outcome of a well-thought-out plan set in motion decades ago? Heartbreaking stories of American citizens who feel abandoned by the US federal government are intertwined with one-on-one interviews with journalists, philosophers and political scientists. An investigative, powerful documentary that attempts to detect how corporations gradually took over politics, undermining people’s will.
The Jimmy Dore Show When Viktor Shokin, a former Prosecutor General of Ukraine and notable target of onetime Vice President Joe Biden, wrote a book about his experiences in office, there were powerful individuals within the U.S. Government who didn’t want people reading this book, or even becoming aware it existed. And that’s why government agents insisted Twitter censor accounts promoting Shokin’s book, along with countless others in the tsunami of demands for censorship from government agencies that were flooding into the social media company prior to the 2020 election. Guest host Aaron Maté and journalist Matt Taibbi discuss the very dangerous precedent established by this unseemly private-public censorial partnership.
