Nothing New Under the Sun in Politics
I’ve been going back over some of my blog articles, notes and political ranting of the past several years.
I have come to the realization that as the bible says in Ecclesiastics 1:9 “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”
That saying is especially true when it comes to politics.
During the 2009 – 2016 President Obama dealt with a nation suffered from a struggling economy, high taxes, homelessness, a failed healthcare system and illegal immigration. Remember the Freddy Mack and Fannie Mae fiasco? Communities across the nation were attempting to eliminate homeless camps? Lots of folks were without healthcare? Illegals were flooding across the border?
In 2017 – 2021 President Trump tackled the economy; taxes; homelessness; Obamacare; immigration; the Chinese virus and a hostile media and an even more hostile Democratic congress? Even so efforts by Donald Trump were aimed to restore pride in America.
In 2021 President Biden began earnestly dismantling Trump’s legacy by stopping border wall construction, an open immigration and an authoritarian approach to handling the virus, masking, social distancing and vaccinations for the general population, but not for members of congress and select government agencies.
In 1981 when President Reagan was shot, our government went into crisis mode and while Vice President Bush was airborne in Air Force Two, the Secretary of State Alexander Haig ordered the VP to return to Washington and announced to the nation that everything was fine because he was now in charge.
After the events of January 6th 2021 Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Milley, in consultation with the leaders of congressional democrats in both the House and the Senate, determined in his mind that President Trump was unstable. He then took it upon himself to contact military leaders of several foreign countries both allies and enemies of the US and assured them everything was fine and he was in charge. What Milley failed to do was advice President Trump that he was committing treason.
In each case appointed cabinet members took it upon themselves to grab the reins of government in clear violation of the line of succession or under the Constitution even though they may have felt justified.
I wonder who General Milley is contacting while holding down the appointed position of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President Biden, who is clearly and visibly unstable and ill prepared for the office of President. – I am the Real Truckmaster
