Joe Biden revealed a list of transition teams for the departments in his administration on November 10, 2020. Dave DeCamp of Antiwar.com observed that the Biden Pentagon transition team is made up of 23 people, “many of whom hail from hawkish think tanks”
Kathleen Hicks is leading the team. She was previously employed at the Pentagon under the Obama administration. Hicks recently worked at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a foreign policy think tank which is a recepient of contributions from weapons manufacturers such as Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Raytheon.
Additionally, CSIS is a recipient of contributions from foreign governments. Some of its largest donors are Japan, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States. Two other individuals who work for CSIS are on the transition team. Specifically, Andrew Hunter and Melissa Dalton, were employed in the Pentagon during the Obama administration.
CSIS analysts generally pen articles that call for a more active U.S. presence abroad. A few months ago, Hicks was a co-author of an Op-Ed in The Hill titled, “Pentagon Action to Withdraw from Germany Benefits Our Adversaries,” a piece critical of President Trump’s plan to reduce troops in Germany, which Biden could potentially reverse. For decades, Germany has been under American occupation. It is now a First World nation with a level-headed government that is more than capable of defending itself. However, the foreign policy establishment has other plans in mind and would rather maintain a de facto empire abroad.
Another two members of the transition team previously worked at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS). Susanna Blume was a former Pentagon employee and Ely Ratner served as deputy national security from 2015 to 2017 under then-Vice President Joe Biden.
CNAS also is the beneficiary of generous donations from weapons manufacturers, big business, and governments. Over the past year, CNAS received at least $500,000 from both the US State Department and Northrop Grumman. Some of CNAS’s other high profile donors include Facebook, Google,Lockheed Martin, and Raytheon.
All in all, the Biden administration looks to be another Swampy administration. Due to how connected Biden is to the defense industry, there’s no reason to believe that his foreign policy will be less restrained than Trump’s.
If Biden’s election is certified, expect the U.S. to go back to its usual neoconservative/neoliberal programming. At least with Trump, his administration has brought restrainers such as Douglas Macgregor on board as an adviser. The same cannot be said about a future Biden administration.
Washington DC Democrat Government Poisons Michigan National Guard Troops With Uncooked Meals, Metal Shavings
A whistleblower deployed with a detachment of the Michigan National Guard in Washington, DC has revealed that that his soldiers are being served with unsafe food by the government. The troops are present following the January 20th inauguration.
The staff sergeant revealed the travesty, speaking anonymously to Detroit’s WXYZ. The National Guard had contracted with the Washington DC city government to feed the troops, who were present to protect the city.
“Yesterday, for instance, there were 74 different meals found with raw beef in them,” the sergeant said. “Just yesterday, the lunches were, soldiers had found metal shavings in their food.”
The staff sergeant whistleblower revealed the raw meat had made more than a dozen service members sick with food poisoning, with one soldier even having to go to the hospital after eating the uncooked chicken.
The Michigan National Guard later confirmed that the troops were being effectively food-poisoned by the local government.
The @MINationalGuard provided this statement today:
"The firsthand accounts and pictures of undercooked food being served clearly shows that what is being given to Michigan’s service members is unacceptable."@GovWhitmer spoke with the Acting Sec. of Army about the situation pic.twitter.com/QEaa7G2fRB

The MING personnel have since switched to eating MRE’s, or meals-ready-to-eat.
The uncooked food scandal represents the second act of disrespect to Guard members stationed around the Capitol. Pelosi’s House of Representatives had kicked out Guard members who were sleeping in a lobby room following a Democrat Congressman’s complaint that one wasn’t wearing a mask, forcing the troops to sleep in a parking lot on a night where temperatures were near freezing.
The Washington political establishment wishes to use military service members as political props to fearmonger a bogus imminent threat of “insurrection,” but the bastion of globalism can’t even provide edible food to the troops.
