Lou Dobbs has a few thoughts as the establishment fascists, the “corporatists, are broadening their against President Trump and in particular his policies to secure our borders and our ports and to control the flow of immigration and refugees into this country.”
“Interestingly,” notes Dobbs, “the two principle lobbyists for US multinationals are the Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable. And they’ve been uncharacteristically quiet and out of sight as the corporate broadsides become more frequent and louder.”
Dobbs says, “Traditionally few CEOs have gone public with their politics, that’s changing. Those CEOs for years have feared they might alienate their customers but for some reason that tradition is being shattered, almost daily. One of the wealthiest men in this country is Jeff Bezos, he is the founder of Amazon and the owner of the Washington Post.”
“That makes him a pretty powerful fellow,” says Dobbs. “Bezos has not only unleashed the Post’s reporters, editorialists and columnists in the fight against the Trump White House, which almost hourly they contend on the front lines. He is now personally and publicly opposing the President’s executive order, weighing a legal challenge to counter the President’s executive order pausing refugee admissions and immigration from seven countries and instituting extreme vetting.
One point Mr. Dobbs doesn’t make is that Bezos’ adoptive father, Miguel Bezos, immigrated to the United States from Cuba at the age of 15, alone and as an illegal alien. That could explain his intense loathing of policies that would prevent illegals and potential terrorists from entering the United States.
Dobbs says, “Joining Bezos and Amazon is Expedia, in a declaration of support for a lawsuit brought by the Washington State Attorney General. Microsoft also says it’s cooperating with the AG’s office in Washington on the effect of President Trump’s order. All three companies are, of course, headquartered in Washington.”
“But the assault against President Trump’s national security agenda,” says Mr. Dobbs, “extending to corporate leaders from Apple and Facebook and Google and Netflix and Ford, Goldman Sachs and Starbucks and the list goes on. The big multinationals, Wall Street, corporate America have chosen, in my opinion, poorly. They are for their reasons fighting a President who won the White House by challenging the status quo, challenging the establishment and the orthodoxies that all of those companies represent, that have allowed the globalists to cut jobs, to cut pay and to marginalize our middle class and the futures of a generation of Americans.”
Dobbs says, “The corporatists, the globalists and the elites will, I believe, soon learn they’re on the wrong side of history and President Trump on the right side. And from here on it is America first and American citizens have returned to being in charge of their government.
