How the CIA Created a Ruling, Corporate Overclass in America<quoted text>
You did not show any proof that any Republican interfered with the CIA/DIA's intelligence. It was not until the Patriot Act removed a Jimmy Carter law that prevented the FBI and the CIA/DIA from talking to each other.
Jimmy Carter almost totally dismantled the CIA and it took Reagan almost his whole eight years to restore the CIA.

The Bush administration will be forever associated with a "ruling overclass" --oligarchs who were the sole beneficiaries of Ronald Reagan's infamous tax cut of 1982 and, later, several equally inequitable tax cuts during the Bush regime. It is no coincidence that the oligarchs likewise benefited in various ways from Bush's military adventures in the Middle East. GOP tax cuts are typically called "trickle down" theory. Reagan's Budget Director David Stockman called the theory that justifies them a "trojan horse".
Since Ronald Reagan's infamous tax cut of 1982, "conservatives" myopically cite a mythical "Reagan Recovery" as proof of "Reaganomics", otherwise called supply-side economics. The right wing argument is simplistic and fallacious. It must be pointed out that following the tax cut, the nation plunged into recession, the worst since Herbert Hoover's Great Depression of 1929. Nevertheless, conservatives will persist in citing a three percent growth rate following two years of severe recession as proof that "wealth trickles down". This assertion fails to address key questions.
Who benefited from the recovery?
At some 3 percent how long did it take for the nation to regain lost ground?
Did Reagan's tax cuts bring about more growth than would have normally occurred?
