Another week of depending on drafts for I have 2 eye appointments and one surgery this week….
Full disclosure….as an international relations geek I use foreign policy as a ruler to measure the people running for president.
I have covered and written about what I think of Trump’s foreign policy….not very flattering in my opinion.
Now on to the Dems top candidate these days….I have written what I think about Uncle Joe’s policies…..read my thoughts here…..https://lobotero.com/2020/04/23/bidens-foreign-policy/
For his run against Trump in November Biden has put together his foreign policy team…..and that team of “experts” have gotten filthy rich with their pro war dealings……
They had been public servants their whole careers. But when Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election, two departing Obama officials were anxious for work. Trump’s win had caught them by surprise.
Sergio Aguirre and Nitin Chadda had reached the most elite quarters of U.S. foreign policy. Aguirre had started out of school as a fellow in the White House and a decade later had become chief of staff to U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power. Chadda, who joined the Pentagon out of college as a speechwriter, had become a key adviser to Secretary of Defense Ash Carter in even less time. Now, Chadda had a long-shot idea.
They turned to an industry of power-brokering little known outside the capital: strategic consultancies. Retiring leaders often open firms bearing their names: Madeleine Albright has one, as do Condoleezza Rice and former Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen. Their strategic consultancies tend to blur corporate and governmental roles. This obscure corner of Washington is critical to understanding how a President Joe Biden would conduct foreign policy. He has been picking top advisers from this shadowy world.
This illustrates what a Biden presidency will look like if he gets elected…..it will be the same as Clinton, Bush, Obama….pro war and pro M-IC……money will dictate the policies.
Not something that would lead me to support this man for the presidency……any promises about ending this war or that is idle talk and a promise he will not keep.
