The reason behind the tragic destruction of the Republican Party boils down to one word, “greed.” It began under the President Ron Reagan administration. A cabal of Republican analysts set in motion a plan at that time to move manufacturing off-shore and implement NAFTA. The problem with implementing a systemic change is that system keeps on rolling and often becomes destructive.
By the time Donald Trump took office, the system was raging. He added wood and blew on the flames, even managing to preserve his noticeable eyebrows. International, cold corporate giants ruled, and then-Senate leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) placed his hands around the Senate’s neck and squeezed.
The small group of Republicans had scraped all of the money from the middle- and working-class. In fact, they went too far, and the masses revolted in the streets as the upper one percent grabbed for still more money.
Take former Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. He spent a lot of time in the Middle East during his tenure, according to CREW. As the top money man in the ex-president’s administration, he used his Cabinet position for profit. Mnuchin blew corruption charges right out of the water with his new investment fund.
The Washington Post reported:
‘[He is] planning to start an investment fund that is expected to raise money from sovereign wealth funds in the Persian Gulf region.’
In a parallel investigation, CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) required Mnuchin turn over all of his communications, calendar entries, and meeting records. They were interested specifically in Mnuchin’s Middle East travels, including “travel, security, accommodations, food, and drink,” Citizens for Ethics reported.
He went to the Middle East as late as January 2021. Prior to that trip and the one in October 2020, a pattern began emerging of how he intended to spend his “retirement.” He put out his shingle to manage Middle Eastern sovereign wealth funds.
The question investigators had was how many taxpayer dollars financed those Middle East trips. It certainly helped that his boss, the ex-president spent his first precious trip dancing with the Saudi Arabian leaders. First son-in-law Jared Kushner mantained a relationship with the Saudi Prince MBS (Mohammed bin-Salman) who will replace his aged father, who has been in poor health. MBS was responsible for the murder and dismemberment of a Washington Post columnist living legally in the U.S.
