The Republican leader of yesterday and incoming Utah Senator Mitt Romney is attracting rebuke from conservatives and praise from progressives for an op-ed in the Washington Post attacking President Donald Trump’s “character,” repeating a long line of attacks in Trump’s direction accusing him of being unfit for office.
Some may have hoped for Romney to change his tune as an incoming Senator facing the prospect of working with the Trump administration, but seeing him reiterate the same accusations made in regards to Trump’s perceived personality qualities doesn’t exactly come as anything new. Romney and other old-guard establishment Republicans have been repeating the same rhetoric about Donald Trump’s “character” since the beginning of the 2016 Republican primary, at many times at the expense of an actual conversation about policy that affects the lives of Americans.
Romney benefits from a large national platform in part from his failed 2012 Presidential campaign. However, when his personal record is revisited, it appears unlikely that he’d be able to escape scrutiny for his destructive and suspicious record as the CEO of Bain Capital from Republicans and conservatives in 2016, “character” questions aside.
Romney amassed a considerable personal fortune from his career at Bain, which on numerous occasions hollowed out American companies and cut costs by firing their domestic workforce, making up for the losses by creating jobs in extremely poor countries such as India and China.
Romney’s prolific practice of destroying American jobs to get rich off of Indian and Chinese dirt-cheap labor was brought to light in the 2012 campaign, ironically by the same platform- The Washington Post– which Romney chose to publish his op-ed in.
The reports highlighted a recurring trend of opportunistic decisions in which the jobs of hard-working Americans were simply cast off as inconvenient to the millionaires like Romney who made them. Bain outsourced American jobs as part of its corporate restructuring of companies such as Chippac, Stream and electronics manufacturer SMTC Corp.
At the time, protecting American jobs had been much more of a potent concern for American progressives, with the political right being beholden to a great extent by corporate interests and billionaire donors. Romney’s political realignment seems to reflect a broader political trend since then, in which American working-class and national economic interests have found themselves better represented within the Trump movement of the Republican Party. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party finds itself increasingly influenced by the wealthy and corporate interests who benefit from the same outsourcing of American jobs practiced by Romney throughout his corporate career. National Democrats spent more money on the 2018 election than Republicans, for the first time in ten years.
Many Americans across demographic and social lines simply have no reason to care about Mitt Romney’s “character.” His record of destroying American jobs for his own personal enrichment, however, simply represents a red flag that many on the political right would be far less inclined to ignore or forgive than they were in 2012.
Goldman Sachs Claims Forcing Americans to Wear Masks Would Save U.S. Economy $1 Trillion
Multinational corporations want Americans to submit to the virus regime.
Corporate titan Goldman Sachs has produced research that contends the U.S. economy would save five percent of GDP, or $1 trillion, due to a national mask mandate using federal force to make people wear masks.
“If a face mask mandate meaningfully lowers coronavirus infections, it could be valuable not only from a public health perspective but also from an economic perspective because it could substitute for renewed lockdowns that would otherwise hit GDP,” the researchers wrote.
Goldman’s analysts claim that forcing people to wear masks at the federal level would impact states like Florida and Texas, where masks are not mandatory, and “meaningfully” increase mask usage nationwide. Even though the mandate would be grossly unconstitutional, Goldman apparently believes that the ends justify the means.
They estimate that a mask mandate would increase mask usage overall by 15 percent and cut the daily growth of new coronavirus cases by between .6% and 1%. Goldman is fueling the false dichotomy where the public must to accept either a strict mask mandate or a Draconian shutdown of society. They claim that the next lockdown would take an additional $1 trillion out of the economy.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is attempting to unseat President Trump in November, has stated that he would use federal power to force Americans to wear masks.
“Yes, I would—from an executive standpoint, yes, I would . . . I would do everything possible to make it a requirement that people had to wear masks in public,” Biden mumbled last week.
The stage has been set for round two of the coronavirus panic to cripple society, even though the establishment has been encouraging Black Lives Matter pogroms against white people simultaneously.
Big League Politics has reported on the so-called experts as they have kept the fear propaganda going despite the immense hypocrisy:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are continuing their fear-mongering about the coronavirus pandemic, desperately trying to dissuade Americans from living their lives.
“Right now, communities are experiencing different levels of transmission occurring, as they gradually ease up onto the community mitigation efforts and gradually reopen,” the CDC’s deputy director for infectious diseases, Jay Butler, said to reporters during a press briefing on Friday.
“If cases begin to go up again, particularly if they go up dramatically, it’s important to recognize that more mitigation efforts such as what were implemented back in March may be needed again,” he added.
Butler emphasized that the “pandemic is not over” and urged localities to re-institute Draconian shutdown policies based on “what is happening within the community regarding disease transmission.”
The CDC has displayed an extreme amount of incompetence throughout the pandemic, which has destroyed their credibility and made them into a national laughingstock.
The establishment will never allow normalcy to return. The Orwellian nightmare, enabled by COVID-19 hysteria, is here to stay.
