Joe Biden has boldly declared that “America is Back.” While there are still legal challenges looming on the horizon of Joe Biden’s likely inauguration, it appears likely that the Old Guard of Washington, D.C. is back in power. When Joe Biden says “America is Back,” what he really means is the Swamp is back. Big government is back. Using American taxpayer money to fund international pet projects, foreign governments, and committing to endless war is back. If Joe Biden is to assume the Presidency on January 20th, 2021, America will likely return to the Obama era glory of surrendering our sovereignty.
A Joe Biden administration will likely result in a repeal of Donald Trump’s “America First” policy, and a retread of the unpopular globalist aligned multilateralism & interventionism which got Trump elected in the first place. In fact, Biden’s foreign policy may simply be Obama rebranded. At the helm of Obama/Biden redux will be Tony Blinken, Biden’s likely Secretary of State. ABC News reports that Blinken is a long-time “close confidant” of Biden “who served as the State Department’s number two under President Barack Obama.” According to ABC’s report, Blinken was one of the people who got behind the push of the Obama Administration’s adventure into Libya. He also supported “greater American involvement in Syria’s long, bloody war…” While ABC tries to romanticize Blinken’s “empathy” towards human rights abuses as a justification for these failed decisions, reality remains; Libya is a virtual failed state and Syria is in ruins.
The Crown Jewel of Obama/Biden’s “America Last” foreign policy was the JCPOA Agreement, otherwise known as the “Iran Deal.” Rewarding one of our greatest enemies with over 100 billion dollars to simply stall their enrichment of uranium into weapons grade material was one of the Obama Administration’s capstone achievements. In an Op-Ed published by CNN, Biden said the following back in September, “I am ready to walk the path of diplomacy if Iran takes steps to show it is ready too.” In other words, Biden wants to get America back in the Iran Deal. This would give a life raft to a drowning Iranian regime which has been crippled by Trump era sanctions. The installation of Blinken, and Biden’s support for reentering the JCPOA, are reminders that under Biden America’s blood and treasure would likely be leaving the country at a pace not seen in the last four years.
No reincarnation of Obama/Biden would be complete without John Kerry. The former Senator/Democratic Presidential Nominee/Obama Secretary of State is slated to head up a new wing of Big Government Bureaucracy as Biden’s purported “Climate Envoy.” In other words, Kerry is being installed to make the insane Green New Deal a reality. One of the first orders of business will likely be reinstating America’s participation in the Paris Climate Accord, which Kerry helped author and signed on America’s behalf. Biden and Kerry plan to rejoin the deal on day 1, reports The Hill. But the Paris Climate Accord doesn’t go far enough for Kerry (or Biden) these days. “Biden has proposed a $2 trillion climate plan that would push the U.S. to net-zero emissions by 2050.” The world’s largest polluter, China, has made the pledge to reach this “net zero” milestone by 2060. In other words, they can continue to use fossil fuels for ten years longer than America. Somehow, the greatest threat to our very existence as a species will only destroy us if America doesn’t bend to the will of international technocrats who say we must go green. Kerry and Biden are more than happy to carry out this radical agenda.
Rejoining treaties which had few tangible results for Americans or installing people who have a track record of supporting failed military adventures are symptoms of the broader Biden philosophy: American sovereignty is obsolete in their eyes. The American Left is chomping at the bit to weaken our nation’s independence and consign us to a series of international initiatives which dilute the inalienable right to self determination of an independent nation state. The Biden Administration may simply be a series of central planning objectives which Trump impeded, administered by the same people who have been profiting off the public for decades.
