Published

On May 6, 2020, former national security adviser H.R. McMaster joined the board of virtual conferencing company Zoom to serve as an independent director according to a report from Politico.

So far, this is the most high profile hiring of a former government official that the company has made.

The move represents a growing push by the company to strengthen its relationship with Washington as its services have grown in demand due to the Wuhan virus pandemic.

Zoom has been scrutinized by lawmakers and regulators for its failure to protect privacy and keep security risks in check. Similarly, the company has also received criticism for temporarily routing calls through China, which has raised questions about the overall security of its system. Zoom claims that the move was a mistake and the calls should have been routed through other countries.

McMaster, a retired Army lieutenant general, worked inside the Trump administration until he was fired in 2018.

“My goal is to help the company navigate rapid growth and assist in meeting Zoom’s commitment to becoming the world’s most secure video communications platform,” McMaster declared in a statement.

A Zoom spokesperson informed POLITICO that the company has also hired two other consulting firms — American Continental Group and The Cohen Group — to strengthen its D.C. outreach. Another prominent former Trump administration official, former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, holds a position as a senior counselor for The Cohen Group.

The revolving door between the defense sector, government, and private companies is very strong.

Not only does it foster corruption, but it can also be exploited by China, which has become more active in using its soft power to undermine U.S. interests by infiltrating corporations.

Should Trump get re-elected, he must completely re-tool his national security and trade policies so that America has a lean foreign policy that contains Chinese influence.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
