Iraq War architect and former U.S President George Bush slammed President Trump’s moves to get the United States untangled from endless and distant foreign wars when speaking alongside Bill Clinton at the Nir School of the Heart.
Bush’s words come days after the political establishment has erupted in rage over President Trump’s decision to remove around 1,000 U.S service members from Syria’s Civil War.
The member of the political dynasty said that “an isolationist United States is destabilizing around the world. We are becoming isolationist and that’s dangerous for the sake of peace.”
For many Americans, it’s frankly rich to hear the widely unpopular and disliked former President attack one of his successors for a foreign policy of restraint. As President, George Bush initiated one of the worst foreign policy disasters in the history of the United States, invading Iraq on the false premise of a nuclear program that the country didn’t actually have.
Millions died as a result of Bush’s colossal blunder, and the Middle East remains destabilized to this day, in part because of the invasion that removed dictator Saddam Hussein from power. Thousands of American military personnel were killed or injured in the war, and countless more continue to suffer from post-traumatic stress. Many Iraq War veterans have committed suicide.
George Bush claimed he was obeying an unwritten rule during the presidency of Barack Obama by declining to criticize him. That rule flew out of the window almost immediately during Trump’s presidency, with the former President tacitly and explicitly criticizing Trump from almost the beginning of his presidency.
It may come as a relief for the family-dynasty former President to see his image rehabilitated by elite liberals with a short memory hoping to align with the well-entrenched neoconservative element in the federal bureaucracy he represents.
Nine of the 2020 Forbes Ten Wealthiest Americans Are Democrat-Affiliated Liberal Megadonors
Pure oligarchy, greed and corruption.
Forbes Magazine released its annual list of the 400 wealthiest people in the world this week, and nine of the top ten wealthiest Americans featured on the list appear to be staunch Democrats and liberal donors.
Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison, Steve Ballmer, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Alice Walton were named as the wealthiest American citizens, all possessing a personal net worth of over 60 billion dollars. Nearly all of them are closely affiliated with Democrat politics in various capacities, most commonly as lavish donors to Democrat campaigns and liberal political causes.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is the only exception, being a figure who appears unaffiliated with the political left, having donated considerably more money to Republicans than Democrats in the 2018 election cycle, although he donated to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Musk has vaguely affiliated himself with some conservatives, and opposed some of California’s coronavirus lockdown policies.
Bezos himself reportedly personally encouraged Mike Bloomberg to run for President, having feuded with President Trump personally at length over Amazon’s utilization of the Postal Service. He hasn’t donated to Biden, but his general affiliation with Democratic politics is indicated through his tacit Bloomberg endorsement.
Alice Walton, a Walmart heiress, comes from a traditionally Republican family, but is a Biden donor with an extensive history of supporting Democrats. The rest of the top 10 are reliable Democrat donors, donating to Republicans rarely, if at all. Mark Zuckerberg occasionally depicts himself as a political centrist independent of Silicon Valley neoliberal politics, but the Facebook platform engages in prolific censorship of conservatives, without applying the same tactics to the political left.
The wealthiest billionaire oligarchs are determined to use their political power to crush the life prospects of the everyday American and the traditional middle-class American way of life. The political right and real conservatives should oppose them at every turn, reinstating an economic vision that upholds small businesses over multinational corporations and entrepreneurship at a local, community level as an alternative to the domination of monopoly billionaires.
