The “elites” are losing it.
Billionaire Tom Steyer, he who is funding the push to impeach President Donald Trump for imaginary high crimes and misdemeanors (they still can’t find any that he’s actually committed), and has irons in all sorts of fires including environmentalist hypocrisy, hedge funds in Panama, and so much more, recently gave an interview to Rolling Stone Magazine lamenting the existence of the Trump Administration and musing about how to “correct the course.”
Interviewer Tim Dickinson pointed out Pelosi’s strategy of opposing impeachment of President George W. Bush, to take the issue off the table in 2006. Democrats took back both chambers of Congress in an electoral rout that year.
“She pointed to how she dealt with George W. Bush – whom many wanted to impeach,” Dickinson said. “She believes the decision to take impeachment off the table helped Democrats take the House in 2006, and paved a path to Obama and a deeper correction.”
“I remember 2006,” Steyer said. “What happened is that George W. Bush, he put us in two disastrous wars and we were headed toward the biggest financial disaster since the Great Depression. So if the answer is that we need those three things to happen for a course correction, I’d prefer to move a little quicker. How about that? But I take your point. Maybe we can have, like, a nuclear war and then we get a real course correction.”
Dickinson responded that was a “sobering” thought, and Steyer replied he would take back the “nuclear war” comment.
“We’re trying to do what’s right,” he said. “And 2006/2008 did not happen because George W. Bush didn’t get impeached, is what I’m saying. I should be a little bit more tempered: I take back that remark about nuclear war. The correction happened because the United States got screwed, and American citizens lost their houses and American citizens lost their lives – and, by the way, there was a terrible climate-related crisis, New Orleans, that the president fumbled.”
Bush did not get impeached because he didn’t really do anything to cost all the people profiting off the wars money. But that is beside the point.
Steyer actually says he wants “correcting the course” to happen even if the American people voted to steer away from the direction he and his cronies had us going. And, it may have been imprudent, but he still suggested nuclear war to do it. Freudian slip or just misspeaking? No one wins a war of that sort. That’s part of the reason why one has never been fought.
Seriously, the big money people who see that their grip on humankind is being lost are going nuts. Tom Steyer is one of them. And if he’s talking about nuclear war, it’s crossed somebody’s mind.
