Do not expect any substantial changes to American foreign policy under a Biden administration.
Presumptive president-elect Joe Biden has made a number of cabinet selections that suggest he will not deviate much from the interventionist foreign policy consensus.
The Washington Free Beacon reported on Antony Blinken, Biden’s prospective nominee for Secretary of State, and his pro-war views.
It is often forgotten that Joe Biden was a supporter of then-President George W. Bush’s disastrous invasion of Iraq. Him and Hillary Clinton both voted to authorize the Iraq War invasion. Biden was intimately involved in foreign policy as the former chair of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations and worked next to the committee’s then-staff director Antony Blinken. The current Secretary of State nominee was a big Iraq war booster and likely pushed Biden to vote for the invasion.
Andrew Stiles of the Washington Free Beacon revealed that Blinken would be the latest in secretary of states in Democrat administrations to have supported the Iraq war:
If confirmed, Blinken would become the third consecutive Iraq war supporter to serve as secretary of state in a Democratic administration. Clinton and John Kerry, both of whom served in the role under Barack Obama, also voted for the Senate resolution to authorize the war.
While he was the national security adviser, Blinken declared during a speech at the Center for American Progress that “Iraq today is less violent, more democratic and more prosperous” than “at any time in recent history.”
Blinken isn’t alone in his support for the Iraq War. Neera Tanden, the president of the Center for American Progress and a staffer for the Clinton political machine, received the nomination as director of the Office of Management and Budget.
Tanden was a fanatic booster of the Iraq War and even got into a physical confrontation back in 2008 with then-ThinkProgress editor-in-chief Faiz Shakir for asking Clinton a question about her support for the Iraq War, a position that was not popular among the Democratic Party base.
The Biden administration represents a reversion to the status quo, in which the defense industry calls the shots and the U.S. is constantly looking for a foreign policy quagmire to get into. The swamp will be back in action should Biden be installed by next January.
Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”
Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.
A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.
Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.
Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.
A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.
In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”
Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.
A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.
The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
