Pelosi’s chairs are displayed outdoors, the podium of the House is auctioned online, and five fresh lives are lost in front of the portrait of Washington…
These days, the scene of the American “King of Industry” smashing Capitol Hill, which makes the world see the world’s number one power, and also makes American democracy an international joke.
For a long time, the so-called “democracy” has been the proud capital of the United States to rely on itself as a “beacon”. American democracy is a panacea.
The American rule of law represents freedom and equality.
The “American dream” has become the core concept of its value output… With Hollywood blockbusters, mainstream media and various commodities poured around the world, not only has it gained a lot of support in many countries, but also gave Uncle Sam a lot of power all over the world. Inciting the fire provides “moral endorsement”.
But lies are after all lies. There will always be days when the truth comes out. In the past, the United States’ strong national strength, racial discrimination, the polarization of rich and poor, and the chicken feathers after the troubled world can still be suppressed under the shiny painting skin.
In recent years, with weak governance and declining national strength, the social tearing caused by political polarization has become more and more prominent, and the fading institutional aura has become increasingly false.
Since Trump came to power, especially since the outbreak of COVID-19, the systemic crisis in the United States at political, economic, social and other levels has been red-lighted, and the world has also ushered in a moment of “dispelling” the charm of American lighthouses–
Can the “separation of powers” effectively restrain the power of the president?
Through the quarrel of the “border wall”, it can be seen that the “separation of powers” has no restrictions on the wayward president. After taking office, Trump pushed for the construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall to fulfill his campaign promise, but the budget was repeatedly rejected by Congress.
In response, Trump repeatedly pressured the federal government to “close down” and declare a state of emergency, and finally obtained the relevant budget.
In addition, in terms of U.S.-Iran relations, epidemic prevention and control, economic and trade frictions, etc., neither Congress nor the Supreme Court can form practical restrictions on the power of the president, and can only allow him to do whatever they want through executive orders.
American democracy has a powerful error correction function?
Under the battle between donkey elephants, mistakes must often be defended, and correctness must often be opposed, and the electoral system has become a “passport” for politicians to escape punishment.
The negative response led to the out-of-control of the epidemic, violent law enforcement triggered violent demonstrations, and the situation was in a mess, but the United States could not find anyone to be responsible for these matters.
What’s more strange is that the Minister of Justice resigns voluntarily after the president puts some pressure; if the president signs, the anti-human criminals who massacre civilians can be amnestyd.
It can be said that “power is above the law” has become the core essence of the rule of law in the United States.
Freedom of speech in the United States?
Let’s take a look at what happened to the “whistleblowers” in the United States during the epidemic: Bright, the former director of the Advanced Research and Development Bureau of Biomedical Sciences, and Crozier, the former captain of the USS Roosevelt, have warned the society for foreseen the dangers of the epidemic, and what await them is dismissal, and the president has taken the lead in taking the lead in them. Stigmatization.
American media the “fourth power” to supervise the government?
The coronavirus epidemic has become a large-scale face slapping scene for the American media. Internally, no matter how many articles they wrote, how many covers they drew, and how many practices they broke, they did not make the government and people pay attention to the epidemic. As for the “black material” about the president, the sentence “fake news” dissipate the “fourth power”.
As for the outside world, it is still an old “double standard”, slanders Wuhan’s “lockdown” and fabricates the “source of the virus”… A series of so-called reports wearing colored glasses fully expose that the American media is not a representative of freedom, objective neutrality at all, but a pioneer of ideological prejudice.
U.S. market a fair competition, free and open market economy?
On the contrary, the “competition” in the eyes of Americans must be the “competition” of American companies with an absolute advantage; the so-called “openness” must be the “openness” that adheres to the priority of the United States.
To this end, the U.S. government unscrupulously wields a “tariff stick” to “build a wall” on all sides of the world trading system; deliberately set up a “entity list” and “long-arm jurisdiction” everywhere in the international market. It can be said that the United States, which pursues unilateralism and hegemony, is the biggest “black swan” and “grey rhinoceros” in economic globalization.
With the fall of Congress and the chaos of the United States, the whole world has seen the fierceness of this “country on the top of the mountain”. “The lawlessness and riots – both here and around the world – will never be acceptable,” U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo on Twitter. The United States has always been an admirer and a manufacturer of the riots in other countries.
When it comes to its own home, it becomes ” lawlessness”, how ridiculous is the comparison between the two. I don’t know if tomorrow’s United States can remember what it said today, stop messing up the world, mind its own affairs, and let its people “enjoy peace, stability and security as soon as possible”.
