Wednesday, a member of the old guard GOP establishment — left behind by ordinary Americans after failing to conserve anything during a half-century of power — openly rooted for a stock market crash – which would surely crush those same ordinary Americans – so that President Donald J. Trump would be impeached.
“How many people’s hearts sank when they saw the Dow went up 1,000 points because they really hoped Trump had plunged us into a bear market that would cause GOP legislators to turn on him and support removal after impeachment?” said John Podhoretz.

Podhoretz was a contributing editor at the failed Weekly Standard, which #NeverTrump’d itself to death. Having learned nothing from the demise of that pompous, out-of-touch rag, he continues to fight on behalf of the elite D.C. establishment against the interests of ordinary Republican voters.
His Tweet came in response to the DOW’s record Wednesday. The market closed up 1085 points after a dismal Christmas Eve performance which had Democrats and #NeverTrump “Republicans” giddy over the potential to knock the President. The pathetic losers have been waiting for two years with bated breath, ignoring hundreds of stock market records during the Trump presidency (a demonstrably good outcome for ordinary Americans) for a market downturn that could sway public opinion of Trump.
Thursday, the DOW climbed another 600 points.
Given that control of the House of Representatives will be turned over to Democrats on Jan. 3, it is possible that Trump will be successfully impeached by the lower chamber of Congress. But for Trump to be removed from office, two-thirds of the Senate would have to vote for his impeachment. About 20 Senate Republicans would have to turn on the President.
Podhoretz and his elitist GOP ilk will continue rooting for a market crash to serve their ultimate end: spiting the will of the ordinary Republican voters who overtly and handily rejected their 16 candidates in the 2016 Republican primary in favor of a political outsider. Egos bruised, former GOP influencers like Podhoretz still have not recovered from their embarrassing fall from grace.

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.
