President Biden has finally completed his dream team. After the shocking assault on the Capitol by right-wing extremists and fascist organizations, many establishment politicians, large corporations, and military officials have fallen behind the Biden-Harris administration, and many want to go “back to normal.” With Democrats in control of the House and Senate for the first time since 2008, Biden has chosen to fill his cabinet with a wide-ranging assortment of neoliberal establishment capitalists of every race, gender, and creed. 

Biden’s cabinet reflects a commitment to the corporate and imperialist interests of America, snubbing the progressive wing that funneled most of the grassroots energy and anger from the summer’s uprising into campaigning for him. He shows only a face-value commitment to the BLM protests demands: his cabinet has diversity in gender, race, and religion, but no diversity in politics. They are committed to protecting U.S. hegemony and big-business class interests. The coming days will be full of his nominees getting confirmed by the Democrat controlled House and Senate. With a corporate cabinet full of Democrat establishment rehashes from the Obama years, Biden is promising to go back to the normalcy that brought Trump to power four years ago.

We’ve created a short list highlighting what you should know about each new cabinet member. There is a lot more to say about each of these corporate shills, but we’ve compiled some of the most relevant information here.

Ahmaud Arbery’s killers have been found guilty. The guilty verdict in the Ahmaud Arbery murder trial is welcome news, but we should be tired of the see-saw of injustice, and fight to abolish the racist, capitalist system as a whole.

Ahmaud Arbery’s Killers Convicted Despite the Legal System, Not Because of It

Ahmaud Arbery’s killers were found guilty by a jury today. A few days ago a jury also let murderer Kyle Rittenhouse walk free. This system is not for us and never will be. The working class and the oppressed must unite to fight against the capitalist system that is built on racism.

Let This Radicalize You

The Rittenhouse Verdict was outrageous, but we can’t allow ourselves to fall into despair. We need to take radical conclusions from what happened.
