“Oligarchy had long been growing within America’s republican forms,” writes Angelo Codevilla in “Clarity in Trump’s Wake.” By the first decade of the 21st century, “little but formality was left of the American republic.” Nobody voted for such changes, and whoever won the presidential elections of 2008 and 2012, “the same people would be in charge.”
After the election of 2020, Codevilla notes, “The United States of America is now a classic oligarchy.” That calls for new ways of describing the nation Joe Biden purports to lead. The only sense in which “USA” still applies is Under Soetoro Again, and that requires explanation.
As David Garrow noted in Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, the president of 2008-2016 was a “composite character,” and his vaunted Dreams from My Father was a novel, not an autobiography or memoir. The composite character president referred to the “Austrian” language and told Russian president Dimitry Medvedev he would have “more flexibility” after the election.
The former Barry Soetoro, whose beloved Frank Marshall Davis was a Communist, never forgot what state he happened to be in. Joe Biden often forgets his location, and he could easily turn out worse than his old boss.
During the campaign, Joe Biden told the nation that the Chinese are “not bad folks,” and “not competition for us.” And of course, the “big guy” had a piece of the action through son Hunter. In the style of Manchukuo, the United States is now Amerikachukuo, an economic zone for the People’s Republic of China.
Candidates Elizabeth Warren, Michael Bloomberg, and Joe Biden all said they would not allow Chinese companies to build critical infrastructure in the United States. That is already going on in projects such as the new span of the Bay Bridge. California rejected federal funding and used Chinese steel and labor on the project, which came in 10 years late, $5 billion over budget, and riddled with safety issues. Biden is now hailing California as a policy model, so more Chinese infrastructure projects are doubtless in the works.
That is bad news for American workers, but it will surely please Sen. Mitch McConnell, who with wife Elaine Chao is on the Chinese gravy train. Dianne Feinstein, who harbored a Chinese spy on her staff for 20 years, will also be celebrating. So will Rep. Eric Swalwell, who could reconnect with his Chinese girlfriend “PoonFang,” who was also a Chinese spy. Even so, Nancy Pelosi kept Swalwell on the House intelligence committee.
In Joe Biden’s Amerikachukuo, Communist spies will come and go as they please, and the FBI’s priority will be Americans who challenge the oligarchy. The Delaware Democrat who vanquished Corn Pop is also on record that illegal immigrants are “already Americans.”
The Biden oligarchy will provide corrupt, failed regimes worldwide with lebensraum for their own citizens. The United States, drowning in fathomless debt, becomes a Zone of Free Stuff (ZFS) for foreign nationals, all financed by American taxpayers. As they know, Oligarch Biden wants to raise taxes, but there’s more to it.
In America the constitutional republic, people who work hard can achieve their dream. In a classic oligarchy, the people get only what the government wants to give them. The people have a voice, endlessly bullied by the government, which limits the people’s choice to a roster of approved candidates. The Biden oligarchy will assign people to oppressor and victim classes based on the way they were born, and will not hesitate to criminalize policy differences.
This is the culmination of the composite character’s 2008 pledge to “fundamentally” transform the United States. His Promised Land bears little resemblance to the American republic, and the life Americans knew under the rule of law and U.S. Constitution.
As the record shows, Donald Trump made America great again and created a patriotic movement of 74 million. The task for that movement is to “Make America Again,” but as David Gelernter cautions, “it will be no easier to get it back than it was to get in the first place.”
The oligarchy deployed the FBI and DOJ against candidate and President Trump, so no surprise if these forces now target Trump allies and voters. Indeed, the Democrat-media axis is urging such action under the guise of fighting “domestic terrorism.”
Democrat militias Antifa and BLM have already been bloodied and under Biden will be eager for more. As in 2020, the FBI will do nothing to stop it, and victims will get no help from collaborators Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell et al. Even so, the patriotic movement should move ahead with actions still possible under the system.
Back in 2003, Californians recalled Democrat Gov. Gray Davis and in 2021 are attempting to recall the disastrous Gavin Newsom, who hails the leadership of his one-time aunt Nancy Pelosi. If the patriotic movement can make America again in one state, perhaps America can reemerge in other states, or despite the odds, the entire nation.
If not, the Trump years may turn out to be America’s Tiananmen Square, when the people stood up for freedom, only to be betrayed by those who should have been standing with them. As Trump likes to say, we’ll have to see what happens.
