Rudy Giuliani Begins to Get His Comeuppance is Corporate America Next?

Rudy Giuliani

The one thing government power freaks fail to understand, and those who think they can successfully flirt with government power centers, is that regardless of how much power one has, or how close to power one is, at any given moment that power center can be turned against you--and likely will.

Leon Trotsky was at one time as close to absolute power as you can get. From March 1918 to January 1925, Trotsky headed the Red Army as People's Commissar for Military and Naval Affairs and played a vital role in the Bolshevik victory in the Russian Civil War of 1917-1922. He became one of the seven members of the first Bolshevik Politburo. This was a serious power player and a master at the power game. And yet, on the orders of Joeseph Stalin, he was assassinated, by an ice pick to the back of the head while in exile in Mexico.

And now, in the United States, we are witness to the evil state going after Rudy Giuliani, raiding both his home and his office.

Former Trump-lawyer Michael Cohen whose own past life was destroyed by the state explained the irony of all this to CNN:

What’s ironic here is the fact that these tactics of the Southern District of New York in terms of bullying you into a plea deal were created by Rudy Giuliani going back 30 years ago. And it’s just ironic that the tactics that he created for that office are now going to be employed against him in terms of making him plead guilty...

In the state of New York, the once-popular NY governor, Andrew Cuomo, has seen the power center turn against him to such a degree that the spokesman for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio can reply, when asked about comments Cuomo made dissing a de Blasio announcement that he wanted to open up the entire city on July 1, with vicious contempt.

Cuomo said he was “reluctant” to pinpoint a Big Apple reopening date and noted that he relied on “a statewide management system and we’re managing it by the science, by the data.”

The mayor's press secretary Bill Neidhardt  responded to The New Yorke Post, “Serial sexual assaulter says what?”

Neidhardt also told an NY1 reporter who asked about Cuomo’s remarks: “I don’t care what a serial sexual harasser and assaulter and someone who covered up the deaths of thousands of people at nursing homes has to say about anything.”

The power game is a very dangerous game. Those in corporate top-level executive positions sucking up to social justice warriors and BLM promoters are cuddling up to power freaks in a game that is beyond their knowledge capacity. The intellectuals driving the power game are not playing, the corporate executives attempting to protect themselves by siding up to them are really buffoons. 

As Joseph Schumpeter put it:

[T]he intellectual group cannot help nibbling, because it lives on criticism and its whole position depends on criticism that stings; and criticism of persons and of current events will, in a situation where nothing is sacrosanct, fatally issue in criticism of classes and institutions... 
[T] the tendency toward complete removal of restraints, steadily breaking down those short-run attempts at resistance by which bourgeois society proves itself so incompetent and occasionally so childish a disciplinarian.

The power-thirsty intellectuals are making their move, supported by their chosen statist muscle. But make no mistake, they will not stop with Giuliani and Cuomo. These two operations are a bit acts. There is much more to this advance. First, they came for the political clowns Giuliani and Cuomo. Corporate America is surely on the list and a much more appetizing power grab.

Corporate America executives need to wake up before the proverbial ice axes with their names on them are taken out of storage.
