USA 2021: Shuffling the diplomatic deck

As leaders across the globe congratulate President-elect Joe Biden, what will his presidency mean for the currently capricious state of global affairs? Geopolitical adviser John Sitilides outlines how major powers will likely react to US foreign policy changing its isolationist tune. Then, former US diplomat Jim Jatras walks us through the changing of the guard among US ambassadors. The transition from Trump to Biden couldn’t be more drastic in many respects, though attorney John Whitehead and host of RT’s Redacted Tonight Lee Camp lay out a laundry list of worrisome programs and public grievances that aren’t disappearing anytime soon. On the docket: Government mass surveillance, militarized police departments, and a perpetual feud between corporate America and climate change activism.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you.
