Vivek Ramaswamy: Anti-Semite, The Indian Face Of White Supremacy, Soros Stooge...Or Is He?

If taking flack means that he is over the target, then Vivek Ramaswamy is indeed pricking the GOPe and the Democrat/Corporate interests that are terrified of any change in the status quo.

Search "Ramaswamy" on Bing and the articles from the mainstream media are almost uniformly dismissive: linking him to Trump or Musk, suggesting he is too young, too combative, and of course the great unwritten subtext...he may be dark-skinned, but he isn't the correct kind of plantation-dwelling minority that the progressive movement favors.

Talk about projection!

Ramaswamy recently made some remarks about Israel and its place at the top of our foreign aid list (more about that below). He suggested that his administration will complete the realignment in the Middle East that was started by President Trump, and that within a few years Israel would no longer require aid from us. He was pilloried for that comment by both the left and some on the right, but while I think it is a bit of a pipe dream, it is by no means an attack on Israel. The real attacks on Israel come from the bien pensants in Europe, our very own rabid anti-Semites in congress, and the various hard-left NGOs dedicated to its destruction.

He is also being tarred with the George Soros brush, which is a serious charge...if it were true. It isn't. He accepted a scholarship from a scholarship fund created by Paul and Daisy Soros. He was George's older brother, but not the progressive type at all! In fact the program requires a "commitment to the United States' fundamental principles and ideals." That doesn't sound like a George Soros sleeper...does it? Ramaswamy tried to get the Wikipedia entry corrected or deleted, which was unwise, but understandable. That seems to be the big black mark from the GOPe hacks who want nothing to do with a candidate who doesn't particularly favor their brand of politics.

But his policy goals are laudable, and if he were to win and had the capacity to begin the long process of dismantling the deep state, America would be far better off than it is now.

Is he going to get the nomination? No. And if he did he wouldn't win against the combined efforts of the entrenched Democrats and their vote manipulation, and the corporate Republican interests who want nothing more than to manage the decline while making their share of the graft.

As for Israel's foreign aid package? $3.3 billion this year, most of which goes to purchasing American weapons systems. It is dwarfed by the catastrophic spending on the Ukraine quagmire, but that is carefully excluded from the calculations, probably because the Biden Crime Family doesn't get much of a cut from the Israeli aid, and boy are they pissed.

The primary season is upon us all too early, and I would prefer to hear some substantive debate about the various serious candidates. And there are a few! Trump, DeSantis, Ramaswamy, and even Burgum and Suarez (until we learn more about them). Instead we get Donald Trump's arraignment circus dominating the news cycle, and a bunch of grifting clowns and beached whales sniping at Trump and the other serious candidates.

And that would be okay in normal times, but we are very obviously not in normal times. We need a united Republican/Conservative movement that winnows out the weaker candidates without devolving into a self-destructive circle-jerk. But that is also dependent on the candidates themselves, and the Donald Trump, the front-runner, is the worst offender, preferring to attack his "disloyal" opponents rather than focus his energies on the multiplicity of issues with which the Democrats can be attacked, and building a system to combat the steal which is absolutely going to be as significant as it was in 2020.

I also want a pony and a mint condition 1965 Mustang convertible with a bored-out 289.
