CHRIS HEDGES – The same cabal of war mongering pundits, foreign policy specialists and government officials, year after year, debacle after debacle, smugly dodge responsibility for the military fiascos they orchestrate. They are protean, shifting adroitly with the political winds, moving from the Republican Party to the Democratic Party and then back again, mutating from cold warriors to neocons to liberal interventionists. Pseudo intellectuals, they exude a cloying Ivy League snobbery as they sell perpetual fear, perpetual war, and a racist worldview, where the lesser breeds of the earth only understand violence.
LAWRENCE WITTNER – Itâ€™s hard to take seriously Trumpâ€™s claim that U.S. workers have thrived during his presidency. Indeed, even before the disasters wrought by the coronavirus pandemic, American workers received a raw deal.
NORMAN SOLOMON – Letâ€™s be blunt: As a supposed friend of American workers, Joe Biden is a phony. And now that heâ€™s running for president, Bidenâ€™s huge task is to hide his phoniness.
