It is true, the Democratic party, long the party of the working-class, farmers, factory workers, the underclass have become the party of the wealthy, the corporate, the elite. While there are certainly socialists among them, the party is as establishment as it gets. However, it is not true that the Republican party were never a party of the wealthy nor that they have truly become economic populists. Trump has only forced them to pander more on this issue. Where the rubber hits the road, they don't deliver. Look at Mitch McConnell, who for the first 2 years of Republican control of Congress focused on tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans & multi-national corporations. Look at the multi-trillion $ stimulus bills both parties keep agreeing on, which are mostly pork & bailouts. It's why a huge chunk of the GOP have helped undermine Trump for four years. It's why most of them really aren't broken up over a Biden administration. ______________________________ https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/a-bunch-of-democrats-are-marxists-but-the-ones-with-power-are-elite-corporatists _______ Excerpts: “I never quite know who is most stuck in the past: The liberals who insist that conservatives and Republicans are all shills for rich folks and corporations, or the conservatives and Republicans who insist liberals and Democrats are all Marxist redistributionists. It should be obvious to everyone with eyes that today’s Democratic Party is the party of the elite. All of the wealthiest congressional districts are represented by Democrats. Joe Biden beat Donald Trump mostly by outperforming in upper-middle-class white suburbs. [...] “Yet many Republicans still love to argue that Democrats hate success, and many Democrats love to pretend that the other side is the party of the rich. It’s tough to sort out. The bottom line is this: Many Democrats, including the most popular, are Marxist, but the party establishment is essentially corporatist. The Democratic Party broadly believes in Big Government in service of Big Government and the wealthy. [...] “That’s why their legislative priorities are tax cuts are subsidies for the rich. That’s why their health-care and environmental plans always end up being massive subsidies. That’s why Joe Biden dominated in raising money from Wall Street.” ______________ #Republicans | #Democrats | #corruptionisbipartisan | #rulingclass | #corporatists

I never liked Newton Gingrich, but I definitely agree with him in this lengthy article. He raised a lot of good points about the massive collusion between the political establishment, media, Big Tech & Deep State to undermine President Trump for 4 years and to rig this election. It's a threat to the country. If you're in a hurry, check out the excerpts. If you've got some time, read the entire article. ______________________________ https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/dec/21/why-i-will-not-accept-joe-biden-as-president/ _______ Excerpts: “Having spent more than four years watching the left Resist President Donald Trump and focus entirely on undoing and undermining the 2016 election, it took me several days to understand the depth of my own feelings. [...] “The left’s world is mostly the established world of the forces who have been dominant for most of my life. My world is the populist rebellion which believes we are being destroyed, our liberties are being cancelled and our religions are under assault. (Note the new Human Rights Campaign to decertify any religious school which does not accept secular sexual values — and that many Democrat governors have kept casinos open while closing churches though the COVID-19 pandemic.) We also believe other Democrat-led COVID-19 policies have enriched the wealthy while crushing middle class small business owners (some 160,000 restaurants may close). [...] “people in my world are told it is time to stop resisting and cooperate with the new president. But we remember that the Democrats wanted to cooperate with Mr. Trump so much that they began talking about his impeachment before he even took office. The Washington Post ran a story on Democrat impeachment plots the day of the inauguration. In fact, nearly 70 Democratic lawmakers boycotted his inauguration. A massive left-wing demonstration was staged in Washington the day after, where Madonna announced she dreamed of blowing up the White House to widespread applause. [...] “I am not reacting to the votes so much as to the whole election environment. When Twitter and Facebook censored the oldest and fourth largest newspaper (founded by Alexander Hamilton) because it accurately reported news that could hurt Mr. Biden’s chances — where were The New York Times and The Washington Post? The truth of the Hunter Biden story is now becoming impossible to avoid or conceal. [...] “Typically, newspapers and media outlets band together when press freedom is threatened by censorship. Where was the sanctimonious "democracy dies in darkness?" Tragically, The Washington Post is now part of the darkness. [...] “Officials in virtually every swing state broke their states’ own laws to send out millions of ballots or ballot applications to every registered voter. It was all clearly documented in the Texas lawsuit, which was declined by the U.S. Supreme Court based on Texas’ procedural standing — not the merits of the case. That’s the election. [...] “The entire elite liberal media lied about the timeline of the COVID-19 vaccine. They blamed President Trump for the global pandemic even as he did literally everything top scientists instructed. [...] “This is just the beginning. But any one of those things alone is enough for Trump supporters to think we have been robbed by a ruthless establishment — which is likely to only get more corrupt and aggressive if it gets away with these blatant acts. [...] “Given this environment, I have no interest in legitimizing the father of a son who Chinese Communist Party members boast about buying. Nor do I have any interest in pretending that the current result is legitimate or honorable. It is simply the final stroke of a four-year establishment-media power grab. It has been perpetrated by people who have broken the law, cheated the country of information, and smeared those of us who believe in America over China, history over revisionism, and the liberal ideal of free expression over cancel culture.” ______________ #Resistance | #mediabias | #DeepState | #BlueCoup | #NewtGingrich

This is the kind of voice we have desperately needed at the top of the U.S. government, particularly at the State Department. With a Biden administration, we'll be getting the opposite. The traitors who have sold us out for 40+ years to China will be running the whole show. ______________________________ https://justthenews.com/world/asia/richard-grenell-says-china-very-clear-crisis _______ Excerpts: “Former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell says that America and the international community have "failed" to acknowledge China "as a clear and present danger." "We've been hoodwinked for the last couple of years by many Democrats trying to make Russia a bigger problem, and our focus on Russia," Grenell said during an interview on Fox News Channel's Life, Liberty & Levin. "Our focus should be on both, but China is a very clear crisis." [...] “"I think that we're at an incredible crossroads and in many ways we've missed it and we've allowed China to go into the WTO," Grenell said. "You know we decided to do that because we thought we'd try engagement, and I believe that engagement can work but I think that you also have to benchmark it very quickly, maybe two or three years to see if it does work. We're now 20-plus years with China into the WTO. They've completely manipulated the process." "They're getting money from the United Nations from the rest of us because they can't always feed their people, but yet they are a superpower in the making," Grenell said. "And we have to make sure that we understand that China has been playing us and it's time to call out the fact that the international community has failed and the United States has failed to recognize them as a clear and present danger."” ______________ #RicGrenell | #CCP | #China | #nationalsecurity | #BeijingBiden
