"Under Trump, it became popular for liberals to pretend they care about social movements, police brutality, etc. Under a neoliberal Biden administration, most of the policies will stay the same, but libs will go back to brunch and ignore the crushing systemic violence of US society."

Biden Will Have the Most Diverse, Intersectional Cabinet of Mass Murderers Ever Assembled

https://twitter.com/caitoz/status/13256226066582538240

"Well, you'll be happy to know that the next US president and his crack team of ventriloquists are assembling a cabinet of mass murderers that's as diverse, inclusive and intersectional as America itself. It's been obvious for a long time that Joe Biden's cabinet would be packed with Obama holdovers, war pigs and whatever primary opponents he owes favors to, but now that he is the media-annointed winner of the presidential election we're getting a bit more confirmation on who they're expected to be..."

Biden, Democrats Prepare Right Wing Administration

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2020/11/09/elec-n09.html

"...The claim that the Democratic Party ran too far to the left is ludicrous. This is a right-wing capitalist party, whose most significant influx over the past two years, in terms of leading personnel, has been the entry of a layer of former CIA and Special Forces operatives, along with former military commanders and top civilian advisers from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They now account for as many as 15 members of the House Democratic Caucus and will hold the balance of power in the next Congress.

The Democrats did not nominate a single candidate from the Sanders' wing of the party for any Senate seat considered competitive, but there is no hue and cry blaming the failure to win back the Senate on the dominant right wing of the party..."

NATO Says Biden Victory Will Help With 'Assertive Russia' as influential Moscow MP warns Democrat Sees Country as 'Main Enemy'

"Congratulating the Democratic candidate on his projected win, which incumbent President Donald Trump continues to allege is the result of electoral fraud, the secretary-general of NATO singled out Moscow as a priority for the incoming American leader. In a statement on the US-led military bloc's website, Jens Stollenberg wrote, 'I warmly welcome the election of Joe Biden as the next president of the United States. I know Mr Biden as a strong supporter of NATO and the transatlantic establishment.

He continued: We need the collective strength to deal with the many challenges we face, including a more assertive Russia, international terrorism, cyber and missile threats, and a shift in the global balance of power with the rise of China..."

Their replacements would be appointed by their states Governors, who are both Republicans.

melovesproles

Sanders probably is still most effective in the Senate but the Secretary of Labour should be someone he would have appointed. If Biden and the Democrats don't pay attention to the indicators that they are losing the working class vote in a lot of areas, then I'd expect the Republicans to take back the Presidency next election. 

I think Warren undercut her leverage by running such an awful campaign in the primaries. I don't see her having a lot of allies. It's a pretty safe bet that she would be a much better Secretary of the Treasury than what we'll see Biden appoint though.

Ritter: The Return of the Obama 'Adults' in a Joe Bid en Administration is Likely to Spell Ruin for [North] America

https://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Return-of-the-Obama-A-by-Scott-Rit...

"...A potential Biden cabinet would more than likely complement the existing predilections on the part of the president-elect for military interventions, pointing to a foreign and national security policy which not only sustains the existing conflict in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and elsewhere, but increases the likelihood of additional military misadventures. The Biden team will almost certainly seek to shoehorn the president elect's aggressive 'American is back' philosophy into a geopolitical reality that is not inclined to accept such a role sitting down. So who's likely to fill what role...?"

Biden Will Likely Be Worse than Obama. The Left Must Lead the Backlash, or the Right Will

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55891.htm

"It looks like a safe bet that Joe Biden will be sworn in on January 20th after successfully campaigning on returning the murderous and oppressive Orwellian US empire back to its pre-Trump 'normal.' The problem with this, apart from the obvious fact that it was an embarrassingly close victory only made possible by the COVID outbreak, is returning to the exact position which created Trump. It's like using a time machine to prevent a train-wreck, but only going back to one millisecond before the train-wreck occurred..."

If anyone isn't familiar with this Jimmy Dore who is linked so often by NDPP, here is a recent critique of Dore by Sam Seder and his crew at Majority Report. I think they are right in their view of Dore as a burned out nihilist.

I think Dem supporters and their liberal media mouthpieces would prefer no opposition or exposure because it makes them look like the cheerleading chumps they are.

kropotkin1951

Here is a good piece by Dimitri Lascaris. I have to agree with his conclusions.

Joe Biden is no saviour. There is nothing progressive about the man. He is as beholden to the plutocracy as Trump. One can easily imagine that Biden is relieved by the Democrat’s apparent failure to gain control of the Senate, because Republican control of the Senate provides Biden with a convenient excuse to abandon his empty promises of progressive action.

As usual the anti-democratic Senate will hinder the establishment of left of centre policies. Hopefully the Democrats win both Georgia Senate seats. Even then the Senate will function to limit change as 60 Senators are required to make real change like expanding Medicare. Medicine should be expanded to cover all Americans who want it even if single-payer is not established.

Chris Hedges: The Ruling Elite's War on Truth

https://scheerpost.com/2020/11/23/chris-hedges-the-ruling-elites-war-on-...

"Joe Biden's victory instantly obliterated the Democratic Party's longstanding charge that Russia was hijacking and compromising US elections. The Biden victory, the Democratic Party leaders and their courtiers in the media now insist, is evidence that the democratic process is strong and untainted, that the system works. The election ratified the will of the people.

But imagine if Donald Trump had been reelected. Would the Democratis and pundits of the New York Times, CNN and MSNBC pay homage to a fair electoral process? Or having spent four years trying to impugn the integrity of the 2016 presidential race, would they once again haul out the blunt instrument of Russian influence to paint Trump as Vladimir Putin's Manchurian candidate? Never mind that both ruling parties are silent about the massive interference in our elections by Israel...."

One would have to have democratic institutions for them to be endangered. Electoral college, Citizen's United and electronic voting instead of paper ballots all tell me if there ever was any democracy in the US electoral system it has been gone long before the Orange Herring arrived on the scene. He has played his role to a tee and people like you think he is the idiot.

When "tankie" is used to refer to Glenn Greenwald and, as I heard it when the Lima group shit started, people who oppose invading Venezuela, I think it's time to admit the term is simply an insult meaning "people to the left of me". Originally it meant people who would defend the Soviet Union's policing their satellite states via invasion (hence "tankie"), but now it's twisted around to be thrown at people who oppose the United States policing its satellite states via invasion. Even if one were to claim that it's being used in its distorted 1970s sense of "people who toe the Moscow CPSU line", I don't think anyone has any basis for portraying Greenwald as a communist. Indeed, I far more often see accusations he's a fascist for criticizing Biden. Maybe it's time to retire the word.

I watched Dore's program a few times. Like much light fare it was good the first time but annoying by about the third time. I don't like his style because he belabors the obvious not because I think his views are necessarily wrong.

"...We don't talk about why people are losing their minds, for the increasingly obvious reason that culture war is the only thing standing between America's plutocratic class and a lof of pitchforks. So what we'll get more and more of, as the country grows less stable, are inciting narratives: The sticks are filled with gun-toting loons, Antifa wants your house.
