The American “Invade the world, Invite the world” ruling class
George H. W. Bush served as the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993. He presided over the fall of the Berlin Wall, the unification of Germany, the liberation of 100 million Eastern Europeans and the dissolution of the Soviet Union into 15 independent nations. At the time America was the world's lone superpower.
But how did the left-right “Invade the world, Invite the World” democracy crusaders, globalists, open borders progressives and interventionists do by their country in the decades since 41 was president?
A. Rather than pursue a strategy to normalize relations with Russia, the ruling class treated Russia like an untrustworthy and dangerous recidivist. They expanded NATO right up to the entire front porch of Mother Russia - the Balkans, the eastern Baltic, and the Black Sea. Did they believe a great nation like Russia would forever indulge the presence of a hostile alliance on her doorstep led by a distant superpower? The ruling class undermined the opportunity to work with the Yeltsin led Russia and instead marched us into an autocratic nationalist Russia led by Vladimir Putin.
B. Since 41, the ruling class threw open our markets to Chinese goods, escorted China into the WTO, and smiled approvingly as U.S. companies shifted production there. Beijing reciprocated — by manipulating her currency, running up hundreds of billions of dollars in trade surpluses with us, thieved our technology when she could not extort it from our industries in China, and even sent student spies into American universities. Now the mask has fallen. China is claiming all the waters around her, building island bases in the South China Sea and deploying weapons to counter U.S. aircraft carriers. Creating ports and bases in Asia and Africa, confronting Taiwan — China clearly sees America as a potentially hostile rival power and is reaching for hegemony in the Western Pacific and East Asia.
C. After 9/11, the American ruling class invaded Afghanistan, overthrew the Taliban, set out to build an Afghan regime on American principles, attacked and occupied Iraq, ignited a civil war in Syria, and convinced Libya to give up nuclear ambitions only to then attack and perform regime change there. What are the fruits of the left-right forever war in the Middle East? They force us to live with even more foreigners who are not like us and who don’t share our values and enslave us with even more public debt.
D. After 41 left, the ruling class supported an immigration policy that brought tens of millions, mostly unskilled and poor, half of them illegal, into our own country. The U.S. has incurred 12 trillion dollars in trade deficits, lost scores of thousands of manufacturing plants and 5 million manufacturing jobs. Our economic independence is ancient history, the middle class has fallen behind, our once great nation is now a divided, divisive, low trust society where no one has anything in common, and the Republican nominee has lost the popular vote in six of the last seven presidential elections.
Whose policies and failures led to the “unipolar power” of 1992 becoming disunited internally and challenged externally by two great powers now collaborating against us?
The left-right “Invade the world, Invite the world” American ruling class led by Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barrack Obama.
Does this ruling class not deserve to be overthrown?
