'District of Corruption' Exposes the Players in Washington, D.C.
Judicial Watch has teamed with Victory Film Group and Stephen K. Bannon, the stalwart award-winning writer/director of “Occupy Unmasked” and “The Undefeated,” to produce a compelling documentary exposing the corruption that has snaked through the last three presidential administrations.
“District of Corruption,” which opened Friday in Phoenix at the AMC Desert Ridge 18, and is also playing at the AMC Lennox Town Center 24 in Columbus, Ohio, is produced in association with Constant Motion Entertainment. The film focuses on the enduring and epic battle Judicial Watch, the nation's most powerful watchdog organization, has waged against government scandal, secrecy and corruption, with special emphasis on the constant scandals of the Obama Administration, including Operation Fast and Furious, illegal alien amnesty, election integrity, crony capitalism, and bailouts and Solyndra.
There is little doubt U.S. citizens are growing increasingly disturbed about the corruption in Washington; on Election Day 2012, Judicial Watch and Breitbart News commissioned a survey of voters with Public Opinion Strategies on the issues of government corruption and secrecy. According to the survey, corruption in the federal government is a serious concern among voters, with 85 percent saying they are “concerned” and 53 percent saying they are “very concerned.”
And Judicial Watch has been tenacious about fighting corruption; they have filed 950 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and more than 90 lawsuits against the Obama administration on issues ranging from Obamacare to the continued funding of the criminal ACORN network; from tracking Wall Street bailout money to the unconstitutional use of czars; and to the attacks on the integrity of our nation’s elections.
The documentary isn’t partisan; it chronicles the historic lawsuits against the Bush administration over secrecy issues, one of which ended up before the Supreme Court of the United States.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, author of the New York Times bestseller, “The Corruption Chronicles, Obama’s Big Secrecy, Big Corruption, and Big Government,” said:
“District of Corruption” is a must-watch for every American citizen concerned about the explosion of corrupt government power in Washington, DC, a problem that will sure to worsen in a second Obama term. The American people agree on the importance of cleaning up government corruption. “District of Corruption” provides the unvarnished truth about the threat of government corruption, while also providing a reason to hope. This is the right film and the right time.
Bannon, Chairman of Breitbart News and a co-founder of the National Tea Party Federation who has been fighting against duplicity in politics for years with films such as “In The Face of Evil," "Still Point in a Turning World,” and The Tea Party Trilogy: “Generation Zero,” “Fire From the Heartland,” and “Battle for America," echoed:
This film brings together the nation’s most respected conservative voices to confront the most important issue of our time. The nation’s institutions of government are collapsing under the weight of government power, corruption and scandal. We know that much of what is in this film will shock the senses, but the American people must wake up to the reality of what is happening to their country. And they must rally behind this band of warriors in Washington who truly believe that no one is above the law.
The growing dominance of corrupt players in Washington is rapidly becoming a juggernaut in the Obama Administration. And the only way to fight it is to know exactly which players we need to attack.
“District of Corruption” paints a giant bulls-eye on the targets.
