Obama, Bush to hold conferences on authoritarian threats, disinfo. after expected Trump announcement

With the ruling D.C. establishment having successfully beaten back the midterm election challenges to their unchecked power by congressional candidates who were supported by former President Donald J. Trump, the job now turns to snuffing out the MAGA movement and, in the eyes of many, two former leaders with much in common will be spearheading the effort.

Two of Trump’s fellow White House alumni Barack Obama and George W. Bush will be holding back-to-back “democracy” conferences following the expected announcement that he will be officially declaring a 2024 presidential run, something that the corrupt uniparty appears to be determined to prevent at all costs.

According to a report from Axios, the two conferences will highlight “rising threats from authoritarianism and disinformation — and how to combat them globally and at home,” which will inevitably lead to increased demands for censoring of dissenting voices on social media and the further demonization of the “MAGA Republicans” who were effectively designated as enemies of the state by President Joe Biden in his disgraceful “Soul of a Nation” speech.

On Wednesday, the George W. Bush Institute will hold “The Struggle for Freedom” event in Dallas to be highlighted with an appearance by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky who will converse with Dubya.

The next day, the Obama Foundation will hold its “Democracy Forum” in New York City where the glowing figure at the center of the American liberal universe will “speak on the state of democracy and participate in a conversation with emerging leaders from around the world,” according to Axios.

“At a time when democracy is under threat around the world, the promise and potential of the next generation of leaders is more important than ever. The Forum will bring attention to the biggest challenges democratic institutions face today and showcase democracy in action around the world. We will bring together hundreds of emerging leaders from across Obama Foundation programs, leading experts, and practitioners who are reimagining our institutions and protecting democratic values,” the Obama Foundation’s website bills the event.

The contrast of differing visions of “freedom” and “democracy” couldn’t be more clear than the two celebrated former presidents aligned against Trump, a man who unlike his predecessors and successor Joe Biden, did not start any new foreign wars, instead he chose to use his influence to advocate for peace, not a big moneymaker for the special interests that rule the roost inside of the Beltway.

Bush’s eight-year tenure was marked by wars in Iraq and Afghanistan turning both countries into sinkholes of carnage where obscene amounts of American blood and treasure to promote “democracy” were squandered.

The nation’s 43rd president, using the terrorist attacks of September 1, 2001 as a pretense also implemented the vast domestic surveillance apparatus that would later be abused by Obama for political means, including as Trump has contended, spying on his campaign and transition teams before and after his election in 2016.

In addition to turning the system intended to protect the American populace against those who hate us for our way of life upon law-abiding citizens as documented by the evidence of domestic surveillance programs leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden, Obama took particular relish in droning innocent civilians, further contributing to animosity against Americans.

Both men are also bonded by their hatred of Trump, with it being intensely personal for Bush after Trump emasculated his younger brother Jeb during the 2016 primaries, single-handedly sparing the nation from a third Bush presidency.

According to Axios, “Bush and Obama — a Republican and a Democrat respectively — didn’t coordinate their timing, organizers say. But their events — Bush’s is Nov. 16 in Dallas and Obama’s is Nov. 17 in New York — are happening the week after the U.S. midterm elections.”
