The Resistance wasted a lot of energy trying to depose Trump, but did nothing to oppose his policies. From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:
After it was announced that the Biden camp had selected a Raytheon board member as his secretary of defense, I joked in my last article that it would be more honest if Raytheon itself was Biden’s Pentagon chief since the US Supreme Court ruled that corporations are people anyway. Raytheon for defense secretary, Boeing for secretary of state, Goldman Sachs for secretary treasurer, ExxonMobile head of the EPA, Amazon for CIA director and Google for director of national intelligence. Waka waka, I’m so silly.
Anyway, since that rant was published NPR has reported that the the next US director of agriculture will be a man named Tom Vilsack, whose corporate cronyism the last time he occupied the same position earned him the nickname (I shit you not) “Mr Monsanto”. Which is just too perfect for words, really.
“Some supporters of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders campaigned against Vilsack when he was under consideration to be Clinton’s vice president, branding him ‘Mr. Monsanto’ and citing his role in brokering a compromise on legislation labeling foods containing genetically modified organisms. Sanders opposed the national legislation, which overrode a stricter Vermont state law.”
Hahaha Joe Biden’s nominee for agriculture secretary, Tom Vilsack, is unironically known as “Mr. Monsanto,” because he’s such a blatant shill for environment-destroying Big Ag corporations.
Biden’s cabinet is as cartoonishly corrupt as Trump’s — just more superficially diverse https://t.co/56cnmNHpas
