Tucker Carlson Finally Tells Conservatives and Libertarians “Big Gubmint” Isn’t the Problem… Big Business Is

by Scott Creighton

How many years have I been saying this? That neoliberal globalization is about replacing government with Big Business because nothing, and I mean NOTHING, prohibits them from setting back the hands of time to an age of serfdom where all the advances of human liberty and personal rights and freedoms are erased in the name of profit. Corporatism is the ultimate form of fascism and it is the desired goal of the Washington Consensus.

For years I have said this and warned about creeping fascist ideology in the U.S. and last night Tucker Carlson began to touch on it on his show on Fox “News”

Trump Betrays his Base Again: Unleashes His Inner Globalist During Illegal Immigration Talk

by Scott Creighton

For two years this website has been warning it’s readers that President Trump is no populist. That his campaign rhetoric was a scam like the many others he ran back in the day when he was simply a silver-spooner businessman whose daddy gave him a fortune, a future and the fame he parlayed into a fake-reality TV show which was the only thing he really knew how to do: pretend to be a big time businessman.

Over the course of the past year, President Trump has flip-flopped on one campaign promise after another just like many other presidents before him. And just like all the others, the turn is always in the direction that favors neoliberal globalization. Obama did it. “W” did it. Clinton did it. Ever since “Poppy” Bush said “read my lips” those of us who are old enough to have heard his promise with our own ears have become tone deaf to the pleadings of wannabe leaders of all flavors.

Or at least we should have.

Whether it’s his promise to end ObamaCare in “the first day in office” or his non-interventionist foreign policy (“let Russia and Syria fight ISIS”) or his promise to “drain the swamp” and “lock her up”… there hardly seems to be a populist promise Donald Trump has made good on. Even his tax reform program served the interests of Big Business and the super rich at the expense of the middle class.

Trump has cut regulations making profits easier for Big Business. He has signed an executive order allowing Big Oil a free hand when it comes to their leaky pipelines. He has bombed a number of civilians overseas with the same drone program he used to criticize Obama for using. He opened the doors of the White House to Goldman Sachs to a degree that no president in the past has ever done. And he has stuffed billionaires into offices where they could undermine the government programs they are running like it’s going out of style even though we know that neoliberalism, the Washington Consensus, will never go out of style.

President Trump’s White House serves the interests of Big Business like few others have done in the past. You can put him right up there with Maggie Thatcher or Augusto Pinochet or Ronald Reagan or Bill Clinton if you like. Wall Street indicators tell you his is a historically anti-populist administration. The stock market doesn’t rush to all-time highs when a real “man of the people” is in office, a political novice can tell you that.

With all of those betrayals of his base (and more) in the record books, perhaps the most ruthless and damning happened just yesterday with a mere 10 days left of his freshman year.
