Americans put a “Russian Oligarch” in the White House
INTRODUCTION TO THE BIG PICTURE
TRUMP’S WORLD OF: Kleptocracy and Capital Flight
Few journalists have reported on Donald Trump’s past connections with foreign oligarchs or have yet identified his real relationships, and his overall patterns of involvement in Russia’s world-class kleptocracy as his source of illicit capital and criminal loot. Continuing to take advantage of these past relationships will see Trump enrich himself and his family on an unprecedented scale easily associated with his connections with Russia’s kleptocrats. Such connections with Russian kleptocrats will, through a series of proxies, deposit millions or even tens of millions of dollars into the bank account of the president of the United States which would mean that foreign governments or interests will be paying untold sums to the American president.
This tidal wave of illicit capital is hardly just Putin’s doing. It is a symptom of the epic failure in the GOP’s planned political economy. This is the failure of the U.S. political system, in the wake of the GOP’s Coup D’état, to ensure that the U.S. does not have a strong, middle-class-centric economy or political base that would be required for democratic capitalism, the rule of law, or a stable, peaceful relationship with the rest of the world. Since 1992 the GOP—through the U.S. Treasury, USAID, the State Department, the IMF/World Bank, and the EBRD, has driven one of the most massive transfers of public wealth into private hands that the world has ever seen.
For the vast majority of ordinary American citizens, this extreme re-concentration of wealth will produce nothing less than a full-scale 1930s-type depression, an induced rise in domestic price levels that wiped out the private savings of millions, rampant lawlessness, a public health crisis, and a sharp decline in life expectancy and birth rates. But for many banks, private bankers, hedge funds, law firms, and accounting firms, for leading oil companies like Exxon-Mobil and BP, as well as for needy borrowers like the Trump Organization, this extreme re-concentration of wealth will be a godsend. This will be GOP vulture capitalism at its worst.
For Trump, in particular, whose empire is in bankruptcy, the GOP re-concentration of wealth from Russian kleptocrats will provide him with a vast pool of undiscriminating investors. All this helps to explain one of the most intriguing puzzles about Donald Trump’s long, turbulent business career: how he manages to keep financing it, despite a dismal business track record. According to the “official story,” this was simply due to a combination of brilliant deal-making, Trump’s gold-plated brand, and raw animal spirits—with $916 million of creative tax dodging as a kicker. The truth is that Trump has been bought and paid for by abundant new sources of global finance from his connections with foreign oligarchs, especially from Russia.
This new series of articles will examine various profiles of Trump’s past connections with foreign oligarchs and his real relationships, as well as his overall patterns of involvement in Russia’s world-class kleptocracy which are nothing more than a byproduct of the current GOP Coup D’état.
We are now headed towards America’s first Culture War and possibly it’s Second Civil War.
