Pelosi connived a $25 million grant to the Kennedy Center after which they fired musicians and donated $5 million back to the Democrat Party.

WASHINGTON, DC (@ZENINEWS) — It isn’t often that you get to see the Bolshevik Revolution play itself out in real-time right in front of your eyes. But when you look at Nancy Pelosi’s economic plan it’s hard to compare it to anything else. It’s said that those who don’t study history are doomed to repeat it — either Pelosi failed to study it, or it was so long ago that she forgot. Either way, she’s repeating the same mistakes made by Lenin in 1917 — he did it on purpose, with Pelosi there may be a medical explanation, and I don’t mean the Chinese Flu.
Taken from a superb article in American Thinker by Jeffrey Folks is the following comparison — follow along and see if you recognize any similarities: “As soon as the Bolsheviks took over Russia in October 1917, Vladimir Lenin began churning out rubles. In fact, he spent half the state’s revenue on just the printing of new currency. Within a year, the ruble was worth 100,000,000 times less than it had been before the communists took over. Existing rubles, and any investment denominated in rubles, were worthless.”
“Now Nancy Pelosi has passed a fifth stimulus bill intended to keep the printing presses going in Washington. Having already approved trillions in COVID-19 aid, Pelosi now wants another $3 trillion. Pelosi said she was “thrilled” with the record-breaking HEROES Act, as she called it, with much of the spending directed at traditionally Democratic constituencies such as public-sector workers, teachers, students, and the poor. The bill contains student loan forgiveness, extension of unemployment benefits, and another $1,200 in stimulus money for individuals and up to $6,000 for households, including checks for illegal aliens. The bill also restores the State and Local Income Tax (SALT) deduction popular in blue states and promotes early voting and mail-in voting that might favor Democrat candidates.”1
One thing Nancy learned in her many years of “public service” is that you never give something away without getting something back for your money. In the last bill was a $25 million grant to the Kennedy Center after which they fired the musicians and donated $5 million back to the Democrat Party. That’s how Democrat politics works. She seems to have also forgotten that less than 2 weeks ago SCOTUS made it illegal to do anything to encourage illegal aliens to remain in the country — something that giving them money would certainly qualify as.
In a political environment where laws only apply to Republicans and peasants Queen Nancy is untouchable, not only because of her position but how could anyone possibly prosecute someone who likely suffers from dementia and a wet brain from alcohol consumption over the years?
“Lenin’s economic policy was deliberately designed to crash the Russian economy by causing massive runaway inflation. “Lenin’s inflationary program was not a response to the need for an increased money supply. It was a deliberate strategy designed to eliminate money as a means of transactions and, with it, to crush capitalism. From that point on, the state would directly control the means of production and distribution, and the people would, in theory, be dependent on the state for all goods and services. In reality, Lenin’s policy fostered a thriving black market, of which the communists were well aware and on which they relied to feed a segment of the population. So began 73 years of economic demoralization and corruption, driving the people of Russia to secrecy, callous indifference, and even cannibalism.”2
Will Pelosi’s policies have the same consequences? If Donald Trump is defeated in November you can almost count on it. There was another major drawback to Lenin’s policies as well:
“The only problem, as Lenin saw it, was that the Russian people were not dying off fast enough, and Lenin did all he could to help things along. Lenin’s collectivization policy alone accounted for 11 million deaths. Altogether, just how many died under the communist terror is a matter of intense debate, much of it influenced by ideology, but Amis’s estimate, based on data from Robert Conquest, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, and others, adds up to some 100 million souls (Amis, pp. 82–83).”3
This is one of those AHA moments where we all realize why the elderly are being packed into nursing homes infected with the Chinese Plague in Democrat-run states — we have to get rid of the useless eaters. Sounding familiar yet? In light of thousands of unnecessary deaths in NY, NJ, PA, and other Democrat-run gulags, Commissar Whitmer of Michigan has issued a diktat forcing the elderly into nursing homes — likely pre-infected. Fire up the ovens Gustav!
“As Martin Amis writes in his book on the Soviet Union, Koba the Dread (2002) — from which much of my analysis and data are drawn — Lenin’s inflationary policy rested on an underlying contempt for ordinary people, and especially for Russia. From the beginning, Lenin’s strategy was to decimate the value of private property by means of inflationary printing of vast sums of money. Lenin cheered Russia’s descent into starvation, believing that the crisis would increase his party’s support among the peasantry. Those who were starving would have nowhere else to turn. It was an early example of never letting a crisis go to waste.”4
The Democrats share the same contempt for ordinary people, they see themselves as the enlightened apparatchiki, the intelligentsia destined to rule over the unwashed masses. Their plan is simple, print money and pay people to shelter in place. Many are making more than if they were working and out of gratitude to magnanimous benefactors they will vote accordingly. In other words, they’ll take money from the producers (those lucky enough to have jobs) and give it to the parasites. They will print up whatever is necessary to make up the difference. The parasites are too stupid to figure out that the money they get will be so inflated that it will essentially be worthless… after all, free money is free money.
“One of the most insidious aspects of Pelosi’s bill is that it would continue the distribution of funds to every American making less than $100,000. Most of those persons have already received a stimulus check of $1,200, in many cases on top of unemployment benefits and other support. Indefinite support is especially dangerous: workers can become accustomed to “free” income in a very short time. Once the cash spigot has been turned on, it will be difficult to turn it off.”
“That is just what the Democrats want. A guaranteed income would be popular among the poor, especially among those who have no intention of ever working, but printing another $3 trillion or more each month would soon undermine the value of that distribution, and it would come at the cost of anyone who holds cash or bonds. That includes trillions invested in retirement annuities, life insurance, and ordinary savings. The Democrats’ program would create an inflationary crisis that would reduce the value of money, just as Lenin did in post-revolutionary Russia, in effect weakening the capitalist system and replacing it with dependence on government distributions.”5
It’s the communist revolution come full circle, in the land of the free and the home of the brave. Maybe Kruschev was right when he said that the communists would take over America without ever firing a shot. All they needed was a communist political party and the right circumstances to come along.
“All of this was child’s play to Lenin, one of the most ruthless and evil politicians in history. As the latest stimulus bill shows, inflationary spending is becoming child’s play to Pelosi as well. She sits in her Pacific Heights house with its freezer full of sweets, or at her Napa Valley vineyard or D.C. condo, thinking up ways to increase the dependence of ordinary Americans on government, and with it increased power and wealth to the political elite of which she is the head.”
“Pelosi seems intent on bringing state control of the economy to America. Another word for “state control of the economy” is communism. Only GOP control of Congress and the presidency can stop her. “6
