Romney Wrongly Labels U.S. Government ‘Democracy’ in Defending Opposition Party Media

Published

on

Former Governor of Massachusetts and failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been a Senator-elect from Utah for less than one week, and the weak “Republican” is already opposing President Donald J. Trump.

“President Trump tweeted late last month, ‘There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People…’ He was referring to ‘CNN and others in the Fake News business,’ not foreign provocateurs,” Romney wrote in a USA Today op-ed.

“Surely every president has endured stories that he knew were inaccurate and has chaffed at one or more news publications. George Washington was routinely brutalized by a newspaper that had been anonymously funded and founded by his own secretary of State, Thomas Jefferson. But no American president has ever before vilified the American press or one of its professional outlets as an “enemy of the people,” Romney continued.

For Romney to even compare media in the 1700’s to the brutality faced by Trump by the likes of the Democratic Party’s propaganda arm in the mainstream press in 2018 is obviously moronic. But that won’t stop Romney, whom Republicans can expect to pose staunch opposition to Trump in the Senate.

Romney, who would have been president had he not quit campaigning for the final two weeks of the 2012 cycle, also mislabeled the United States as a “Democracy” when any fourth grade civics student knows that it is a Constitutional Republic.

“A lesson evidenced by the Arab Spring and by the pseudo-democracies of Venezuela, Russia, and China is democracy and freedom cannot be permanently established in the absence of the basic institutions of freedom, perhaps most notably a free press,” he said. “If a free press is absent, the door to true democracy is quickly closed. This realization now forms an important part of our national foreign policy.”

It’s going to be a long six years.

As the Global Economy Craters, Bill Gates Buys New Oceanfront Mansion for $43 Million

Gates lives the high life while the rest of us suffer.

Technocratic oligarch Bill Gates is living high on the hog while the global economy crashes, picking up another mansion at the height of the coronavirus pandemic to add to his collection.

Gates purchased a $43 million beach home in Del Mar, Calif. with his wife Melinda last week. He bought the palatial estate from Madeleine Pickens, the widow of deceased oil baron T. Boone Pickens, which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms in a lavish 5,800-square-foot home.

Architect Ken Ronchetti designed the home in 1999, and it is supposedly considered “one of the most prominent coastal contemporary beach homes on the West Coast.”

“Wide windows throughout the living spaces open to the back patio, offering a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patio also provides awe-inspiring vistas of the Pacific Ocean,” Realtor.com wrote in their description of the property.

“Rich wood ceilings throughout the home evoke the feeling of being on an island, and the gorgeous pool beckons, should the owners desire to take a break from the salty ocean water,” they added.

Gates newest beach home accompanies his primary compound in Medina, Wash., a garish horse property in Rancho Santa Fee, Calif., and a massive plot of land in Wellington, Fla., which is considered the equestrian capital of the state.

Gates isn’t the only oligarch flaunting his extreme wealth during the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is also piling up many more billions due to human suffering.

Reports have indicated that Bezos has added a stunning $24 billion to his personal wealth throughout the coronavirus pandemic:

While many businesses are suffering during the global coronavirus crisis, Jeff Bezos is flourishing. In the midst of the backlash Amazon is facing due to its alleged treatment of employees, Bezos’ wallet remains obscenely healthy. As of last week, his net worth has reportedly increased by five percent, or better put, by a staggering $23.6 billion.

Over the last months, Amazon has seen a rise in demand as its customer base continues to self-isolate. To cope with the surge of orders, it has already hired thousands of new employees and aims to hire an additional 175,000. It has also pledged to prioritize essential items such as sanitizers and baby formula.

However, the increase in workforce has been met with controversy. Amazon has been repeatedly accused of failing to protect its staff from Covid-19 by not providing enough face masks, not implementing regular temperature checks as promised, and refusing paid sick leave.

Amazon has fired employees who’ve publicly criticized the company for its coronavirus response; the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is currently looking into these claims. Last week, the New York Post reported that an Amazon warehouse employee had passed away from the virus.

“We are calling out because Amazon is putting its revenue above our safety,” Jaylen Camp, an Amazon worker told The Guardian. “We are not essential to them – they just think of us as numbers and quotas. They are not protecting our health.” This failure is leading to huge warehouse strikes after over 130 Amazon warehouses in the US have contracted the virus, leading to more than 30 confirmed cases.

Gates can now enjoy beautiful oceanfront scenery to help inspire his vaccine-pushing schemes worldwide, as he regurgitates Chinese propaganda.
