  • Another “Mission Accomplished” moment in the making, if all goes according to Pelosi’s 10-year economic plan. Bush II better be happy, as he unreservedly supported Biden in the 2020 election and gets to watch his Afghan & tax-cut legacies trashed. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust for the arrogant history-changers. But the Bid-Laden family and Saudis owe the Bush family for their rapid air evacuation from the USA after 9-11. Bush II can theoretically move to Saudi Arabia, and replace his wife with a harem and a palace with oil wells in the backyard while the rest of us suffer the 2020 election harvest. Perhaps the idea, is that a Bush III can eventually succeed to the throne in exchange for the 2020 election support. Politics.

    Would have been better if the Dem party wrecking crew confined itself to pulling down statues, burning and looting business districts, harvesting and goosing ballots, glorifying and legalizing crime, and demonizing white people as supremacists and racists. But the lustful quest for absolute power has now moved onto the Bolshevik mantra of “tax the rich” (asset confiscation via USA tax code) and mandates to replace freedom of choice in the marketplace with command-and-control. The fetid, stagnant economic results are well-known, when applied to free market economies worldwide. The idea, no doubt, is that the 2020 USA election results mirror the 1917 Russian Potemkin election coup. Which led to decades of near absolute communist power via command-and-control mandates (called executive orders in USA) and a strengthened Russian police state (in USA, IRS replaces KGB to monitor bank accounts for dissident transactions that aid tea party et al.). Everything, including the economy, is spun as “necessary collateral damage” to establish “equity” and “climate change” as official state religions to be worshiped in fealty by all. “Truth” is called “dis-information” or labeled Trump “lies” and stomped down as effectively in the new USA as it was in the old USSR. Evil Politics.
