Robert Reich, a Democrat Socialist, an economics professor, and advisor is a public figure whose posts on Twitter could arguably lead to violence, appears to be drunk on power and went on a bender this week demanding the government use its power and further economic sanctioning authority to punish and harass Americans with whom Reich disagrees.
Reich, an icon to the left, wants President Donald J. Trump destroyed, and he encourages the government spend time and money focused for 4 years on destroying him and his supporters.
Engaging Trump supporters were the focus of Reich’s economic focus of his third book:
We must ensure that Donald Trump can never hold public office again.

“Robert Bernard Reich is an American economic advisor, professor, author, and political commentator. He served in the administrations of Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter and served as the United States Secretary of Labor from 1993 to 1997 under Bill Clinton,” according to his biography.
Reich is also an author of his third book on Democrat Socialist policies, and a leading thinker on the power of leftist economics in the United States, as an enemy of Free Markets and small business owners, so his posts are noteworthy:
Recall there has been no public investigation or trial over the events at the Capitol on January 6th. However, the rush to judgment has conveniently been made to give cover to assault the political opponents of the left:
Here Reich is judge and jury and demands the removal of a duly elected President, having declared him guilty:
Reasons why Congress must impeach and remove Donald Trump:
1. He incited an insurrection in order to remain in power.
2. We must show posterity and the world this is intolerable.
3. He capable to doing anything over the next 10 days.

Reich doesn’t stop there; he demands the punishment for all of his political opponents, the American people, by removing their president out of revenge. He admits it is revenge:
Uniting against them starts with removing the president who has encouraged and incited them. Now. https://t.co/JXT354qaS0

In his posts, Reich is determined that Americans who voted for Trump will pay a heavy price, a common theme on the left.
“Those who say we should ‘look forward’ to a new administration and forget or dismiss what occurred last week are delusional. Unless all who participated in or abetted the insurrection, it will happen again,” Reich posted, acknowledging his hatred of the idea of privacy and right to assemble, and freedom of speech.
“Wall Street and corporations have stood by Donald Trump and his enablers, all for tax breaks, bailouts, and deregulation. Don’t think for a second that they have any real allegiance to American democracy. Their allegiance is to profit,” Reich, still smarting from Trump’s policies to help small business, wrote.
Ironically, Reich is Jewish. The push for authoritarian control over Americans for daring live outside of the Government’s authority is horrifying.
“Both Cruz and Hawley are eyeing runs for the presidency in 2024. They should be barred from running,” Reich wrote, showing his idea of the role of the Government over American politics.
“Call me old-fashioned, but I don’t think a president who incites a coup against the U.S. government deserves a $200,000 pension for the rest of his life, along with a million-dollar travel budget, all financed by U.S. taxpayers. Just saying,” he wrote, showing his contempt for American’s right to due process.
It is important to understand Reich’s motives because he is influential upon the power-seekers on the left. Economics, which is usually a dry topic, is not always popular or fun to understand, but it is our Liberty’s foundation. To be free to work versus having to seek permission to work from an out of control government.
So while you are locked away from your business, friends, churches, taverns, and vacations, take some time to understand the Reich of the world.
SEE IF THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE OPPOSITE OF ECONOMIC NATIONALISM, FREE ENTERPRISE, AND TRUMP:
From the best-selling author of Saving Capitalism and The Common Good, an urgent analysis of how the “rigged” systems of American politics and power operate, how this status quo came to be, and how average citizens can enact change.
Millions of Americans have lost confidence in our political and economic system. After years of stagnant wages, volatile job markets, and an unwillingness by those in power to deal with profound threats such as climate change, there is a mounting sense that the system is fixed, serving only those select few with enough money to secure a controlling stake.
With the characteristic clarity and passion that has made him a central civil voice, Robert B. Reich shows how wealth and power have interacted to install an elite oligarchy, eviscerate the middle class, and undermine democracy.
Using Jamie Dimon, the chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, as an example, Reich exposes how those at the top propagate myths about meritocracy, national competitiveness, corporate social responsibility, and the “free market” to distract most Americans from their accumulation of extraordinary wealth, and power over the system.
Instead of answering civic duty calls, they have chosen to uphold self-serving policies that line their own pockets and benefit their bottom line. Reich’s objective is not to foster cynicism, but rather to demystify the system so that we might instill fundamental change and demand that democracy works for the majority once again.”
Do you think Robert Reich, the Socialist, might have an ax to grind with the middle class who want to work for themselves?
Think about it.
