Self-described “radical centrists” are annoying as fuck. They’re just Democrats who think they’re being edgy by occasionally questioning the party line.
The purpose of Sanders’s and Warren’s “Wealth Tax” isn’t to raise money for the government. The purpose isn’t even to “address wealth inequality”; the purpose is to feed the sick fetishists on the left who want to destroy those who have that which they do not and wouldn’t be able to hold onto were it to suddenly fall into their laps.
Bernie & Warren are pandering to people who despise the rich for being rich. But what’s truly terrifying is the root of that hatred: the very notion of wealth itself.
Don’t believe me? Consider that disgusting mantra they’re always so quick to mouth about money being the root of all evil. Without money, what would we use as a tool of exchange? The only alternative would be force — or the threat of it.
Bernie & Warren know exactly what they are doing. They aren’t NPCs like Beto & AOC. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are EVIL.
I really think Bernie’s goal is to usher in a complete collapse of the present economic system — which is the only way America could EVER become a socialist country.
As far as Warren goes, her grasp on economics is tenuous as best. I don’t think she understands (much less cares) where half the crap she’s calling for is going to lead. She’s evil, but she’s proven largely incapable of anticipating the consequences of her own actions.
My hope is that Trump’s legacy will be the overhaul & reorganization of our intelligence agencies. I think it’s coming (in some form or another) but that he’s waiting for his second term. Here’s one way to do it:
If I were the bad orange man, my first order of business upon being reelected would be to fire the current DNI and appoint one who is fully on board with getting rid of the DNI — we just wouldn’t go public with that until after he’s been confirmed.
The next step would be to fire Wray and appoint a new FBI director. Nothing personal — just need somebody fresh. Preferably someone who hasn’t worked too closely with the FBI in the past.
The new director would assist in step three, which would be to reorganize the FBI. Their purview is massive — break ’em up. The agency responsible for investigating federal crimes does NOT belong functioning as an intelligence agency. Let Homeland worry about domestic terrorism and the CIA handle foreign.
Step four would be the dissolution of the NSA. Split their functions accordingly between the NRO, the CIA, and Homeland.
Step five? Gut the CIA. Specifically the Directorate of Support, which is the most massive of the five and has gradually been taking over by the same intersectional ideology plaguing our universities. The function of the DOA should be mission support — that is all.
Trump will mostly have to carry this one out via executive order for a number of reasons. I think the only reason he hasn’t handled it already is that he’s afraid of how it’ll look when he lays off thousands of black women — and no, I’m not being hyperbolic in the least.
After that, I’d deal with the House Democrats. HPSCI doesn’t have nearly as much oversight as they like to pretend, quite simply because the House Dems have a culture of handling sensitive information carelessly, which allows their staffers to “innocently” leak things to the press and get away with it.
(If caught, they’ll quietly be dismissed, but I’ve heard of a few cases in which they were successfully prosecuted.)
It’s gotten so bad that people will routinely refuse to answer questions from the committee, even after they’ve been (emptily) threatened with contempt.
I’d force the DOJ to expend resources prosecuting even the mildest of leaks — including the congressmen themselves — until they got the fucking message and cleaned up their act. If there’s going to be a House oversight committee — and I think there ought to be — then it shouldn’t be just for show.
