Dave DeCamp on the Foreign Policy of a Biden Administration

With Joe Biden apparently poised to be America’s next president, Scott talks to Dave DeCamp about some possible foreign policy changes under the new administration. To begin with, DeCamp worries that Biden will use a recent uptick in violence as an excuse to keep American troops in Afghanistan indefinitely, basically the strategy he advocated as Vice President. On Israel, DeCamp says that Biden was known as one of the strongest zionists in Washington until Trump showed up, and so we can expect very little positive change on that front either. Finally, Scott and DeCamp discuss the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh and its implications for the rest of the world.

They have also sent their proposal that will dramatically increase “continuing disability reviews” (the process during which those receiving disability must prove they’re still disabled) to the Office of Management and Budget for approval as a final rule. The administration admitted it is about dropping people out of the program, “saving” $2.6 billion. It would mean earlier and more frequent reviews for people on disability, likely older people who are physically unable to continue their work. This is simply, in the words of Sen. Ron Wyden, “harassment of people with disabilities” that puts Americans at “greater risk of falling through the cracks.”

As millions of Americans face eviction, have no money for Christmas presents for their children, food pantry lines stretch for miles, and the COVID-19 crisis escalates across the country, it’s critical to remember the role that Charles Koch has played in turning much of the U.S. into a heartless kleptocracy.

Biden’s “normalcy” means return of “ancien régime”

There has been a spate of reports in the American media that the US president-elect Joe Biden is assembling his cabinet of ministers. Most reports mention that Biden’s secretary of state will be Susan Rice, former US ambassador to the United Nations and National Security Advisor in the Barack Obama administration. Reportedly, Biden’s choice for US defence secretary is likely to be Michele Flournoy, who had previously served as a senior defence adviser in Bill Clinton and Barack Obama’s administrations.

STEVE BANNON (CO-HOST): It wasn’t the impeachment that was really going to cause a constitutional crisis, right? You could see how that was going to kind of play out. But it was this vote in 2020 and particularly as you saw the Democrats go to this mail-in vote — ladies and gentlemen we’re hurtling towards a real constitutional crisis and it’s going to start — this prairie fire is going to burn right up to the first week of December. And you’re going to see some very interesting things. We’re going to need a couple profiles in courage. We’re going to need a couple of Horatius at the gate in the first week of December — places like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia. It’s all coming.

Interesting comment:

The difference is thus: A religious leader dies for others sins. A cult leader has others die for his.
