Many people may not remember the February 2009 famous rant by CNBC financial pundit Rick Santelli that captured the heart of the Tea Party movement in response to massive announced bailouts of Wall Street institutions. There are trillions at stake.
Wall Street pundit Rick Santelli was originally responding to the famous TARP, Auto-bailouts, Porkulous, Omnibus, QE1, QE2 and ultimately the American Recovery and Restoration Act (ARRA ie. stimulus ‘shovel ready jobs‘), all of which were financial bailouts and payments for politically connected financial interests and unions. None of these programs assisted Main Street USA with a dime.
Fast forward twelve years later and here we are again. The same voices, with the same playbook, with the same insufferable political manipulation under the guise of COVID compliance mandates. The ‘never let a crisis go to waste crowd‘; and the soon-to-follow massive state spending bailouts; for which COVID is the purposeful cover story.
COVID-19 has more purposefully weaponized political arrows than any previously used financial quiver. However, if you step-back and compare the agenda – there is a brutal amount of similarity… all of the exact same benefactors…. and Main Street collapses.
This is the progressive way to a Marxist economy. We The People are collateral damage.
The real “green new deal”…
