Crisis Management Gone Rogue

Some power-greedy people are using a lot of excuses to accrue more authority.

Recall the infamous maxim of Rahm Emanuel, President Barack Obama’s chief of staff: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.”

Last year, George Soros, the enemy of freedom and free-market capitalism, said in a similar vein, “Even before the pandemic hit, I realized that we were in a revolutionary moment where what would be impossible or even inconceivable in normal times had become not only possible, but probably absolutely necessary.”

Klaus Schwab, the globalist CEO of the World Economic Forum, also sees an opportunity for a New World Order. Schwab envisions a “better world” coming out of the COVID-19 crisis “if we act now.” He sees a Great Reset.

What’s so amazing is how these globalists are so open about their ambitions. While the world is in the midst of a worldwide pandemic with the death toll rising daily, they see opportunities to mold a new world — one in which they are in charge.

Maybe that’s why the teachers unions in some of the worst inner-city neighborhoods are leveraging the crisis to ask for things that have nothing to do with education. Some of their requests are to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour, eliminate charter schools (who wants competition?), and other demands not remotely related to teaching kids.

As best as I have been able to find out, these teachers are getting paid while parents, trying to work and teach their children at home, are held hostage and are just trying to survive.

Maybe that’s why governors and mayors of Democrat states and cities are sticking with shutdown rules and mandates, with threats of arrest or fines if we sheep don’t follow their every rule. It’s tough, especially when we see time and again that these same leaders don’t follow their own rules. I guess it’s “the rules are for thee, but not for me!”

Are you seeing a bigger picture here? It sure seems these leftist petty tyrants are using a crisis to accomplish things they could not do before, forcing average Americans to worry what’s the next job-eliminating, hope-crushing mandate coming down the pike? And they’re not even trying to hide the fact they want us subservient to their control of our nation.

So, how to use this crisis of “insurrection”? Let’s try to remove two senators who had the audacity to challenge the Electoral College votes in swing states where there appeared to be voting irregularities. I know, Democrats did the same thing in past elections, but this is a crisis!

Let’s allow the tech giants to decide what we’re allowed to see on social media because we’re not smart enough to figure out the truth ourselves. We need them to serve as our “Ministry of Truth” (1984) to protect us from misinformation.

I know — why don’t we use this “insurrection” at the Capitol to conduct another phony Impeachment trial of the president … sorry, former president? Let’s make it a “snap” impeachment, whatever that is, with no evidence, no testimony, no defense for the former president, because leftists will not be denied their pound of flesh!

Something to think about?
