Renowned foreign affairs journalist Pepe Escobar believes that a Biden/Harris administration would bring more of the same neoliberal interventionism that characterized the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations.
In his piece for Asia Times titled, “A Dem Presidency Means The Return Of The Blob” Escobar made the case that should Biden pull off a victory against President Donald Trump, that a Democratic administration would bring back the “Blob”, which Escobar describes as the “incestuous Washington, DC foreign policy gang, think tanks, academia, newspapers (from the Washington Post to the New York Times), and that unofficial Bible, Foreign Affairs magazine.”
Escobar highlighted Biden’s career path when he started out as a ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1997 and then became the chair from 2001-2003, to later return as chair from 2007-2009. It’s often forgotten that Biden was major Iraq War booster and as Escobar explained in his article, “even defended a “soft partition” of Iraq, something that fierce nationalists, Sunni and Shi’ite, from Baghdad to Basra will never forget.”
Escobar listed off some of Biden’s accomplishments in the Middle East while he served as Vice President during the administration of Barack Obama:
Obama-Biden’s geopolitical accomplishments include a drone war, or Hellfire missile diplomacy, complete with “kill lists”; the failed Afghan surge; the “liberation” of Libya from behind, turning it into a militia wasteland; the proxy war in Syria fought with “moderate rebels”; and once again leading from behind, the Saudi-orchestrated destruction of Yemen.
Additionally, Escobar highlighted some of Biden’s Blob connections that could end up playing a big role in a Biden/Harris administration:
Among his former, select interlocutors, Biden counts warmonger former NATO secretary-general Anders Fogh Rasmussen – who supervised the destruction of Libya – and John Negroponte, who “organized” the contras in Nicaragua and then “supervised” ISIS/Daesh in Iraq – the crucial element of the Rumsfeld/Cebrowski strategy of instrumentalizing jihadis to do the empire’s dirty work.
On the NATO front, Escobar believes that a Bidden/Harris administration would expand NATO across the globe:
It’s safe to game that a Biden-Harris administration will oversee a de facto NATO expansion encompassing parts of Latin America, Africa and the Pacific, thus pleasing the Atlanticist Blob.
Kamala Harris, while seen as a mostly domestically focused politician, has hawkish views with regards to countries such as Russia and North Korea. Escobar highlighted that she did not even co-sponsor legislation to prevent bellicose action against Venezuela nor North Korea.
The case with Harris is interesting, because as Escobar outlined, she is popular among Never Trumpers such as Robert Kagan, who is not only a major interventionist hawk, but his wife Victoria Nuland was one of the primary architects of the Euromaidan Color Revolution in Ukraine back in 2014. Kagan was one of the founders of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) and is a big Iran hawk. Other notable hawks such as former national security adviser Susan Rice are rumored to be in the running for Secretary of State.
In sum, a Biden administration would be a wet dream for the defense industry and not represent a significant change in America’s misguided foreign policy. Trump has shown through his nominations of William Ruger and Douglas Macgregor to ambassador positions that he is in favor of restraint.

Canadian BBQ Restaurant Owner is Arrested on Thanksgiving for Providing Food to the Community
This is the new normal.
Lockdown insanity is not just a U.S. phenomenon; it is happening throughout the globe as civil liberties and human dignity are thrown to the curb with COVID mass hysteria used as the excuse.
Earlier today, patriotic business owner Adam Skelly was arrested for operating his restaurant in Canada against technocratic edicts laid down by power-crazed government officials:
BREAKING: Owner Adam Skelly of the Etobicoke barbecue business has been arrested.
— NEWSTALK1010 (@NEWSTALK1010) November 26, 2020
Skelly owns Adamson Barbecue in Etobicoke. He faces nine charges of operating his business illegally, including for allowing dining inside of his facility. Skelly is being persecuted by Canadian authorities for wanting to keep his livelihood intact.
Toronto Police Supt. Domenic Sinopoli had threatened Skelly with arrest unless he complied. He followed through with his threat on Thanksgiving.
“We are in a position to stop him . . . tomorrow is another day and we will take enforcement actions, our strategy will change depending on what we’re faced with,” Sinopoli told reporters.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford is the coward who has destroyed the rights of his countrymen, in leadership that some may consider a form of treason.
“You’re putting people’s lives in jeopardy. I try to be nice the first time, but this guy is just totally ignoring public health officials. That’s how this spreads, people are dying from COVID, and he just wants to say forget it? It’s irresponsible and ridiculous,” Ford said.
Canada is arguably outpacing the United States with regards to infringing upon the core rights of its people. Big League Politics has reported on many instances of Canadian tyranny, including how hate speech laws are abused to criminalize Christian pastors for preaching the Gospel:
A Christian pastor named David Lynn was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace with “derogatory comments” on Tuesday for preaching the word of God on a street corner at Church-Wellesley Village in Toronto, ON.
After the disciple of Christ was harassed by a group of unruly protesters, he was hauled off in handcuffs by law enforcement because preaching the Gospel was considered to be a criminal violation.
The LGBT mob cheered on as the man was dragged away in handcuffs, a sign of things to come if their perverse agenda continues unabated…
“It’s unfortunate that I am subject to this kind of discrimination and bullying and marginalization simply for saying God loves you, there is hope for you, I accept you and tolerate you. I shouldn’t be in this position, I didn’t do anything illegal,” Lynn said following his arrest. He is now out on bond.
Lynn was shown on the video saying frequently that “God is love,” and that he doesn’t hate anyone. This didn’t stop the police from apprehending him anyway.
“I didn’t know this was the start of the pride month…I didn’t say anything specific to the LGBTQ community, it’s all on live stream,” he said to reporters.
Lynn believes that the LGBT protesters and other hostile anti-Christians throughout his country want him to “stay in the closet” about his Christian beliefs. His arrest will send a chilling effect to others who want to preach the word of Christ in the liberal-dominated country.
“It looked as though they had an event waiting for me, and they had some form of hatred against me,” Lynn said.
Lynn is now banned from being anywhere near the areas of Bloor Street, Yonge Street, Carlton Street and Jarvis Street on conditions of his bond. He is also banned from being near any Pride event, as he is now a second-class citizen in globalist-occupied Canada.
Meanwhile, the legislature is working to expand laws against free speech, with the “Prohibiting Hate-Promoting Demonstrations at Queen’s Park Act, 2019,” being considered by Ontario lawmakers. It would ban any demonstration, rally or other activity that is deemed hateful by the government from being permissible on legislative grounds. If you don’t think that will apply to Christian speech, just ask David Lynn.
If Western Civilization does not survive, the scientific dictatorship set up in its wake will be the most ghastly regime in world history.
