Proto-Fascist Infrastructure: The NSA, Booz Allen, Unysis, Verizon... And The Koch Bros. 10/06/13 -the greatest challenge we face has nothing to do with factual arguments about the wrongness of our system, but with propaganda. m.dailykos.com/stories/2013/6…

The National Center for Public Policy Research was also home to Jack Abramoff's defauding of #NativeAmerican tribes. #NCPPR directed money received from tribes and distributed it to other "charities," at Abramoff's direction. sourcewatch.org/index.php/Nati…
