I have the perfect slogan that President Trump can use in 2020…
“DEMOCRATS – THE PARTY OF BIG PHARMA, BIG DRUGS, AND BIG CHINA!”
Okay, I know that slogan is going to require a little explanation for some people.
And truth be told, the same could probably be said for about 70% of the Republican Party. However, I’m concerned with the Trump faction, which I believe can rise to full power if things go right in 2020.
BIG PHARMA – A recent article in Breitbart News was discussing the support Pfizer Pharmaceuticals was giving Democratic presidential candidate, Kirsten Gillibrand. The article opened by noting, “Pfizer executive Sally Sussman is planning a March 31 fundraiser for 2020 Democratic Presidential contender Kirsten Gillibrand, according to a report out Friday . . . Gillibrand raised over $75,000 from Pfizer employees during her 2018 Senate campaign, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.”
The same Center for Responsive Politics looked at her campaign contributions from 2013 – 2018. If you add the category “Health Professionals” to the category “Pharmaceuticals” you get total contributions of $687,152.
That puts the “Health” (or should I say “Unhealth“) industry at #4 in her list of industries supporting her campaign, just ahead of “Real Estate.” The only categories ahead of “Health” are “Lawyers/Law Firms”, “Retired” (probably somebody’s slush fund money), and “Securities and Investments” (Hey, weren’t they the ones who wrecked the economy in 2008?) Yes, I’m sure that President Gillibrand will really put the screws to those Wall Street swindlers (sarcasm).
And to put things in perspective, in 2018 the pharmaceutical and health industries donated more than forty-one million dollars to their preferred candidates. By comparison, the oil and gas industry donated eighty-two million to their preferred candidates in the 2018 election.
Pharma is gaining on oil and gas, but none of the media talks about it! Maybe it’s because most of the pharma advertising is going into the evening news. Can you say “corporate capture?”
And in California, how can we forget our lovely state politicians, like democratic Senator Richard Pan (whom we have promoted as the Democrat candidate for President!), who took so much pharma money while pushing mandatory childhood vaccination laws. The next battleground?
The democrats want to push mandatory ADULT vaccinations! Stop the madness!! (And we really think Senator Pan should be in prison, not the Presidency!)
BIG DRUGS – An article from Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner from November 22 of 2016, at a time when President Trump had yet to take office, detailed the problems with drugs flowing across the Mexican border into the United States.
“Over 99 percent of all marijuana and methamphetamine seized at U.S. borders has come from Mexico . . . U.S. Customs and Border Protection seizure figures show that in 2015, 99.8 percent of methamphetamine and 99.9 percent of marijuana seized in the U.S. came from the southern border. . . While the production of some drugs takes place within our borders, foreign drug trade into the U.S. is largely responsible for the number of dead or injured.”
If you have an unsecured border, people and drugs, have free flow into the country.
This is a fact.
Then there’s this article from The New York Times on January 15, 2019 from Alan Feuer:
“The former president of Mexico, Enrique Pena Nieto, took a $100 million bribe from Joaquin Guzman Loera, the infamous crime lord known as El Chapo, according to a witness at Mr. Guzman’s trial.
The stunning testimony was delivered Tuesday in a New York courtroom by Alex Cifuentes Villa, a Colombian drug lord who worked closely with Mr. Guzman from 2007 to 2013, when the kingpin was hiding from the law at a series of remote ranches in the Sierra Madre mountains.”
Okay, let’s ask the question. Money and power. How often do those two things go together?
If the democrats can create Russia-Trump collusion out of thin air, why can’t we do the same?
The democrats want open borders and no wall.
The drug lords want open borders and no wall.
The drug lords pay off Mexican politicians to look the other way.
The drug lords must be paying off American politicians to do the same.
And I did it all in much less time than it took Robert Mueller to do his investigation. And I didn’t have to spend $25 million dollars of your tax money to do it! Everybody wins!
BIG CHINA – Let’s cut to the chase about the threat China poses to the United States. They want to steal our technology and keep complete political control over their people. Did I mention they’re also buying up Hollywood studios which means your movies can’t do things now like talk about Tibet (sorry, Richard Gere and the Dalai Lama!) or Taiwan. They are being erased from the celluloid universe.
Do the democrats seemed to be worried about this development?
Speaking of the Dalai Lama, have you seen him much in the news lately? Has he been hanging out with Ruth Bader Ginsburg? But I digress.
Then you have the ultimate liberal democrat wet dream, the Chinese social credit score. As described in a recent article from Forbes magazine from January 21, 2019 entitled “Chinese Social Credit Score: Utopian Big Data Bliss or Black Mirror on Steroids?”, this how it works in China:
‘Generally, higher credit scores give people a variety of advantages. Individuals are often given perks such as discounted energy bills and access or better visibility on dating websites. Often, those with higher social credit scores are able to forgo deposits on rental properties, bicycles, and umbrellas. They can even get better travel deals . . .
Social credit ratings can go up and down based on an individual’s actions. Purchasing diapers for a child might bump your score (the system assumes you’re a responsible caregiver) while it might take a hit if you buy alcohol . . . If you are found guilty of disrupting or blocking check-in counters or passageways in an airport, as obsessed fans did at the Beijing airport as they fought to gain access to their pop idols, your social credit score can be lowered.”
What a social justice warrior’s dream come true.
You don’t have to just monitor their social media, you can watch them all the time! And maybe while you’re at it, if they’re not good little girls and boys you can get them fired from their jobs, take away their social media accounts, credit cards, deny them the right to use Paypal, or even freeze the money in their bank account.
And what about Apple, one of our greatest tech companies, moving to China? Are the democrats saying anything about it? No.
This is from an article in Reuters from February 23, 2018 entitled “Apple Moves to Store iCloud Keys in China, Raising Human Rights Fears”:
“Now, according to Apple, for the first time the company will store the keys for Chinese iCloud accounts in China itself. That means Chinese authorities will no longer have to use the U.S. courts to seek information on iCloud users and can instead use thier own legal systems to ask Apple to hand over iCloud data for Chinese users, legal experts said.”
That repressive, authoritarian government gets to use its own court system to get Apple to turn over information on its citizens. Some things just make a dictatorship run so smoothly, and Apple is providing all the solutions.
Let’s not forget that one of Steve Bannon’s big ideas…
…(remember how they demonized him?) was that we needed to aggressively confront China. I wonder how much Chinese money went into that campaign of destruction?
And lest we forget, U.S. Senator from California, Diane Feinstein, having a Chinese spy as her driver for twenty years? Oh, don’t worry, we’re told. She never said anything in her limousine she wasn’t supposed to say, or in any of the other places she shouldn’t have?
Really? I’ve worked in a Senator’s office and I overheard a lot of things I wasn’t supposed to, and I was just a summer intern.
I know there are many more facts you might be able to dig up on these issues of the democrats and Big Pharma, Big Drugs, and Big China, but I’ve given you the framework.
It’s a winning slogan in 2020.
“DEMOCRATS ARE THE PARTY OF BIG PHARMA, BIG DRUGS, AND BIG CHINA!”
And the best thing about the slogan is it’s true!
