Washington elites and their colleagues in the establishment media waged a four-year war on President Donald Trump because he restored power to the American people. As Joe Biden assembles his advisors and cabinet members, it looks hauntingly similar to the Obama years. Call it “Return of the Swamp” in jest if you like, but the next administration is infested with Obama cronies and corrupt lobbyists.
Consider for a moment that Biden reportedly bypassed one of his most loyal campaign officials to insert an Obama-era flunky. Symone Sanders is credited with sticking with Biden through thick and thin during a campaign fraught with miscues and faux pas that needed to be explained away to keep the fake news media in his corner. Rather than be offered the job of press secretary, Biden recently announced she will play second fiddle to Jen Psaki.
Psaki worked in the Obama administration in several capacities. Those included Deputy White House Press Secretary to then-President Barack Obama and spokesperson for the pay-to-play State Department under Hillary Clinton. Psaki is best remembered for what has reportedly been called a “brazen lie” that falsely blamed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for the death of a steelworker’s wife. Psaki won’t have any difficulty coordinating fake news from the White House — because she worked for CNN.
“The election means we have lost another CNN contributor. But by the same token, the Biden team has gained a senior adviser,” CNN’s Anderson Cooper reportedly said.
That may be why little criticism has been leveled about throwing Sanders under the bus. Instead, the media recently pushed a Biden falsehood claiming: “For the first time in history, these communications roles will be filled entirely by women.” The Trump administration already has an all-female senior communications staff.
Other potential Biden-Harris team members will include bringing back former Secretary of State John Kerry. He will now reportedly serve in a hybrid position dealing with presidential climate diplomacy. The post appears to put Kerry on the frontlines of forcing the U.S. back into the Paris Climate Agreement. The pact puts harsh and expensive emissions regulations on American companies while giving Asian and EU countries decades to comply. It’s a rigged deal that will likely put millions in Hunter Biden’s bank accounts and send working Americans to the unemployment rolls.
Other Obama-ear cronies expected to play pivotal roles include Alejandro Mayorkas for Homeland Security secretary. He is considered the architect of Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. We will also see the return of former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and Avril Haines as national security director, among many others.
But the Obama cronies may be the least of the country’s worries because Biden appears open arms to transferring power back to special interest groups. His transition team reportedly includes upwards of 40 former lobbyists, and he’s not done yet. He is reportedly granting waivers for other powerful lobbyists to join his administration. The result will be to reverse the “drain the swamp” policies of President Trump.
It took a coordinated effort by Washington elites and their co-conspirators in the establishment media to regain power. Wrestling it away from them again will take a herculean effort.
