    Trump may assert Biden is China’s ‘Manchurian Candidate’ but his policies will differ little from Trump’s.

    Biden names senior White House staff, including Jen O’Malley Dillon

    By Sean Sullivan and Michael Scherer
    Biden announced the hiring of nine senior White House officials on Tuesday, a list that includes confidants who spearheaded his campaign
    Longtime aides Mike Donilon and Steve Ricchetti will step in as a senior adviser and counsellor to the president, respectively. Biden’s campaign manager, Jen O’Malley
    Dillon, will be deputy chief of staff. And his campaign’s general counsel, Dana Remus, will be counsel to the president, acting as Biden’s top attorney in the White Ho
    Rep. Cedric L. Richmond (D-La.), one of Biden’s most prominent African American allies, will leave Capitol Hill to become a senior adviser to the president and director of the White House Office of Public Engagement
    Julie Chávez Rodríguez, a deputy campaign manager for Biden, will become director of the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs. She has worked for Vice President-elect Harris and is the granddaughter of labour activist César Chávez
    Annie Tomasini will become director of Oval Office operations. She has been Biden’s travelling chief of staff
    “I am proud to announce additional members of my senior team who will help us build back better than before. America faces great challenges, and they bring diverse perspectives and a shared commitment to tackling these challenges and emerging on the other side a stronger, more united nation,” Biden said in a statement
    Soon-to-be first lady Jill Biden has also hired staff. Julissa Reynoso Pantaleon, a former ambassador to Uruguay, will be her chief of staff. Anthony Bernal, a top aide to
    Jill Biden during the campaign, will be her senior adviser in the White House.The hires mark Joe Biden’s latest effort to staff his incoming team. Last week, he tapped longtime aide Ron Klain to be his White House chief of staff. Some of the newest rounds of people Biden is bringing into his administration also has deep ties to him.<
    Ricchetti was campaign chairman for Biden, and Donilon was chief strategist, playing a leading role in crafting many of Biden’s speeches.</p>O’Malley Dillon became
    Biden’s campaign manager earlier this year, stepping on board as the team retooled after struggling in the early nominating contests. A veteran of Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection run, she managed former congressman Beto O’Rourke’s unsuccessful Democratic presidential bid in 2019.
    Richmond was an early supporter of Biden and is said to be close to Rep. James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.). Clyburn’s support helped Biden win the South Carolina primary, a victory that eased his way to the nomination.

    Meanwhile, according to this, the old US military/foreign policy establishment is trying  to postpone implementing Trump’s decision to quickly withdraw all US troops from Afghanistan (just as they now admit they did over Syria) until Biden takes over in the expectation that he won’t be so keen to do this.

    Bob Avakian the USA Mao Tse Tung said that when he was young he voted for the lesser evil and it became the greater evil and it was Richard Nixon and now his party run a long campaign asking workers to vote for the lesser evil which is Joe Biden, probably, later on, he would say that he voted also for the greater evil. The Socialist Party and the World Socialist Movement and all its companion party including the World Socialist Party of the US are based on socialist principles, it is not based on political conjunctures. We only have one maximum program which is: Socialism/communism,

    Climate campaigners were outraged that Democratic Louisiana Congressman Cedric Richmond—who has raked in vast campaign contributions from the fossil fuel industry—is joining the incoming administration.  Richmond is “also expected to serve as a liaison with the business community and climate change activists.”

    Varshini Prakash, executive director of the Sunrise Movement, declared, “today feels like a betrayal, because one of President-elect Biden’s very first hires for his new administration has taken more donations from the fossil fuel industry during his congressional career than nearly any other Democrat, cozied up to Big Oil and Gas, and stayed silent and ignored meeting with organizations in his own community while they suffered from toxic pollution and sea-level rise.”

    160 organizations came together Tuesday to oppose former Sen. Heidi Heitkamp to lead the U.S. Department of Agriculture. She is considered the frontrunner to become Biden’s agriculture secretary.

    The groups cite Heitkamp’s history of taking tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from the fossil fuel industry and agribusiness giants including Bayer-Monsanto, Archer Daniels Midland, Syngenta, and Cargill. They also highlight that she “led legislation that exacerbated concentration in the agriculture sector, eased regulations on factory farms, and thwarted progress on combating climate change.”

    “Heitkamp is the wrong choice for the USDA because she has aligned herself with corporate agribusiness at the expense of family farmers, supports fossil fuel interests, and holds views that are out of step with the Democratic Party and the majority of Americans,”

    Biden has sent the world a clear signal that his immigration policy will be more of the same. Biden’s DHS transition team selections show his platform will differ (if at all) only in form, not in substance, from that of Trump.

     …his appointment of Obama’s former top immigration adviser Cecilia Muñoz to his transition team, who brushed off NPR interviewer Maria Hinojosa’s question about family separation, responding that “Some of these things are going to happen.”

    Joe Biden is going to work for the Uncle Sam but he is not going to work for the Uncle Tom. We have had pro-Trumpist and Pro Biden in this forum and we have proven that  both sides have been wrong,  and firstly  history has shown  that we were right about Donald Trump, and history again  will prove that we are right about Joe Biden,

    They are waiting for the new CEO of the corporation and the new captain of the Warship to implement the new  Gunboat diplomacy. The troops are not going to be pulled out from the Middle East ( Trump just want to reduce them ), they are not going to give a free ride to Rusia and China in that region. I do not know how some leftists think that capitalism is anti expansionist and that replacing one capitalist leader for another capitalist leader  capitalism will change its normal course of operation

    An article revealing the fallacy that Biden can be shifted to the left

    ELECTION 2020: War Profiteers, Chickenhawks & Consultants – Consortiumnews

    When the final appointments have been made, we will have a much clearer view. As it is, Establishment corporate Democrats are pushing against any idea that either Sanders or Warren are given any effective political positions…but we will have to wait and see if that speculation turns out to be accurate or not.
