Biden’s Proposed Cabinet – A Kinder and Gentler Imperialism

“Tonight, the whole world is watching America. And I believe at our best, America is a beacon for the globe. We will lead not only by the example of our power, but by the power of our example.” Joe Biden, Nov. 7, 2020

In his first address to the nation as president-elect, Joe Biden told America and the world that power comes first; power is the key. He went on to say "Our nation is shaped by the constant battle between our better angels and our darkest impulses…It's time for our better angels to prevail…"

It is time for America’s “better angels to prevail” but I think Biden has it backwards. He should have said, we will lead by the power of our example and if necessary, by the example of our power. Like his predecessors, he is defaulting to the Military Industrial Complex (MIC).

When you look at Biden's cabinet announcements it takes me to former Giant's coach Bill Parcels who said, "you are what your record says you are." In this case, you are what your cabinet says you are. It is the people who make the policy; policy does not make itself. The history of many of these nominees reflects America’s darkest impulses not its better angels.


{If America were winning the battle of our better angles, we would stop our support of the Saudi’s and provide these starving people food, water and medicine. Instead, America is losing the battle to the MIC, big oil and its darkest impulses. These impulses convince you that it is more important to sell weapons and take resources than provide humanitarian aid.

America’s imperialist, hegemonic and evil regime change policies did not make themselves. Again, it is the people who make the policy. Look at the record of some of Biden’s cabinet nominees and their involvement in these atrocities.}

{On the domestic policy front, Biden has named Neera Tanden as his nominee to lead the Office of Management and Budget. It should be troubling that a nominee for this position has advocated for cuts to Social Security and other vital social safety net programs. During a pandemic, an economy in recession and 30-40 million Americans facing eviction, austerity is not the appropriate response.}

We've heard quite the cry about social security being an issue during the election cycle. Everyone ignored Biden's history while listening to his lip service though. I have to wonder how secure these people feel now with this nominee about to be placed.

{Diversity in gender or ethnicity is not as relevant as diversity in ideology and agenda. Don't get fooled by this identity/gender politics "diversity" veneer. Look at the records of these people. Look at the think-tanks they are tied to and how many of them have been and/or are currently being paid by Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman and the other defense contractors. Look at how many of them were involved in the Libya fiasco, the Yemen catastrophe, Rwanda, and the blunder in Syria.}

No matter how bad Biden may be, Trump would have been exponentially worse. We have to expect poor outcomes in perpetuity, though, because people are stupid and they consistently get tricked into voting against their own interests.
