Meet the New Boss Same as the Old Boss[es]: Biden, Trump and Obama

SOUL

Repairing the soul of the country” (Biden), “Make America Great Again” (Trump) or “Hope and Change (Obama). Pick your poison. In the end, it comes down to the same nothing-burger. Will history repeat itself? In 2009 the Bobbsey twins (Obama/Biden) came up with a nifty plan to save the economy. Reward the banks and financial institutions that caused the crash with trillions of taxpayer dollars while throwing over ten million of their victims out in the street. Don’t think those indecencies are in the rear-view mirror. In the run-up to the election, 36 billionaires made six-figure contributions to Biden’s campaign committees. [Forbes, 7/16/2020] Do you think those donations were made to help Joe remake the soul of America? If you do, I have the perfect bridge to sell you. Nothing will ever change until the people organize a competitive third party to put “fear and loathing” into the duopoly. In “Meet the New Boss Same as the Old Boss[es]: Biden, Trump and Obama,” you will see what happens when the only voices that are listened to in the halls of power are those of the oligarchs.

Two Peas in a Pod: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

Kamala Ambition

President Biden and Vice President Harris. What could possibly go wrong? The Democratic party’s money boys —the banks and big business —have given Kamala a robust thumbs-up. What’s not to like? “She’s not Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. I think that is what people were nervous about.” (Stephanie Link, chief investment strategist at Hightower Advisors). Sure, we get that. No chance that people-friendly policies like Medicare-for-all, a student debt jubilee and free college tuition, policies that people in developed countries all over the world have been enjoying for years, would interfere with the empire’s prerogatives. With Joe and Kamala in charge, the status quo will prevail as it has done in the administration of every president, Democrat or Republican, since 1945. Joe has already promised his BFF’s in finance and industry that “nothing would fundamentally change” if he becomes president. To which Kamala chimed in with a high-five and that mind-bending giggle. Why is she such a good match for Joe Biden, the unrepentant war hawk, champion of austerity and the surveillance state? If the past is prologue to the present, Kamala’s record as DA and AG of catering to the rich and powerful, of horrendous violations of prisoners’ rights, attacks on brown and black schoolchildren and their parents, and protecting pedophile priests make her the perfect fit.
