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?

    This is ridiculous Russian troll garbage. Russia turned itself a kleptocracy and started invading its neighbors. Only mindless Russian trolls and their victims think that is the fault of the US

      When you send troops into a sovereign nation and fight their military to annex territory.

      Maybe I should recognize the independence of your kitchen and go annex your Christmas dinner

    Are you kidding me? Putin is NOT to be trusted.

    Nothing infuriated me back in 2008 and 2012 more than when Obama and the Dems smugly dismissed Kremlin influence in foreign affairs as cold war thinking. And by 2012 Obama HAD to know that Putin was up to no good.

    Yes I mad 😤

    A. Normalization isn't possible while Putin is around. His sole objective is revenge for the fall of the USSR. It's too soon to expect normalized relations like we have with Germany and Japan because the generation that "remembers" is still alive.

    B. That's true but what could've been done? I think engineer in America, manufacture in China is a good strategy. It's better for America to sell millions of Apple iPhones made in China than to sell 1/10th as many because they're made in America. You can only fight overwhelming competitive imbalances for so long.

    C. Not true.

    D. Not true. Republicans are falling because liberalism/leftism is just a more popular ideology. Trump is arguably the right's death throe. It's all blue for America from here onwards for the foreseeable future.

      Regarding part 2, we should protect our IP against CCP spies.

      Dems have no one on the bench in the next election. The best they could find is Beta who lost TX.

      There’s a number of Dems leaving the party. Follow the #walkaway movement.

    Oh how cute, someone has an opinion.

    You think Soviet will really fall without China joining the American by trade and buying all the Treasury note with all the trade surpluses?

    You really think the power vacuum left by USSR will suddenly turn peacefully into a democracy that makes everyone happily ever after?

    USD is the most manipulated currency in the world because we have most of the gold in the world. That's why we could afford the Nixon Shock.

    Admit it, Nixon sold out the working class to break the USSR and win the cold war. We just didn't get the loot like the highest caste did.
