Reports began to surface this week of potential cabinet appointments and priority government projects for Democrat Party presidential challenger Joe Biden should he take office in January.

Many of these, both the individuals and the policies, are not new – they are vestiges of the departed Obama administration that Biden was part of as vice president. In foreign policy, particularly, Biden has promised a return to a status quo under his former boss that fueled global instability, wasted American tax dollars, and hurt the American worker.

Below, five policies Biden has promised to resurrect from their political death under President Donald Trump and the setbacks they represent to policies that, for the past four years, have helped make the world a more peaceful place."

1. Returning to the Iran Nuclear Deal
2. Returning to the Paris Climate Agreement
3. Refunding the World Health Organization
4. Reverse Trump’s Policy of Withdrawal from Afghanistan
5. Rejoining the U.N. Human Rights Council
6. Restoring Friendly Trade Ties with China

I can think of nothing "progressive" about the Biden regressive vision...Right down to recycling the swamp creatures that so pissed people off that they elected a Donald Trump in the first place...

This alone embodies the return to the Obama era policy of "leading from behind", whatever that is supposed to mean, that brought a stagnant economy, shuttered downtown's, and "the new normal" of >1% GDP ....

This is how a great nation cedes its standing in the world....But Liberals will probably love it, because they hate this country to start with, and most of them feel like we are an ignoble, bully in the world, so they will be happy to tear it down....Sad.
These aren't progressive policies. These (along with rebuilding the State Department) return the US to a position of leadership in the word. Bringing in seasoned professionals and career diplomats to try and undo some of the damage skippy and his merry band of incompetents wrought. Cede our "standing"??? Again, what dream world do you Trump supporters live in? That's what we've been doing for the last four years. All the while tearing down our government institutions and letting an incompetent fraud try to establish a dictatorship...right here in our own country. So far, the incoming Biden administration has been a breath of fresh air next to the constant farting of the Trump administration.
Falling in line with lesser nations isn't leading.
But keep diplomacy and communications flowing between not only our allies but with other countries...IS.
It's what leaders do. They lead. Unlike the current administration which has done...well...nothing.
Unless Trump shut down embassies, all of our diplomatic lines are still open. Not sure how you could claim otherwise.

Signing on to unenforceable agreements isn't leading, it is unworthy of the world's only superpower.

Imagine supporting human rights, world health,nuclear disarmament, the environment and free trade

What is Biden thinking?
He doesn't think what you just said, that is for sure.

I hope you are looking forward to a return to perpetual war.

Paying money to be friends isn't leading either. That is what a Biden administration would look like. Pay countries to agree with our values.

Actually it will be us paying them to agree with their values.

Diplomacy is more than having an open embassy.

It is being able to be trusted to keep your commitments, to have your word be credible, to be trusted to make good decisions.

After the Trump debacle, the US aids not trusted.

Biden has a lot of work to do mending international relations. There is nobody that Trump did not insult.

Lots of ways I can see that Trump, Rex, and Mikey have destroyed not only the State Department but also our relations with our allies. It ain't just about embassies.
I know this was put together by Democrats. But it's good reading.

More reading

Paris and the Iran deal were bad decisions that had no benefit for the US. If Biden gets in the White House running back to those horrible deals will make him look weak and further erode our power.

Paris was a good deal for the planet.
The Iran deal got Iran to abandon their nuclear program. Trump allowed them to restart it.

Paris was stupid. No accountability, no real incentive to meet benchmarks, and no oversight or penalties. It's like a climate AA meeting where falling off the wagon has no consequences. If it was a serious deal there would be consequences for failure. It's just feel good nonsense that solves nothing.

Paris was a start of global communication on the environment. Trump replaced it with every man for himself.

John Kerry has made it clear that Paris does not go far enough

6. Restoring Friendly Trade Ties with China

I can think of nothing "progressive" about the Biden regressive vision...Right down to recycling the swamp creatures that so pissed people off that they elected a Donald Trump in the first place...

This alone embodies the return to the Obama era policy of "leading from behind", whatever that is supposed to mean, that brought a stagnant economy, shuttered downtown's, and "the new normal" of >1% GDP ....

This is how a great nation cedes its standing in the world....But Liberals will probably love it, because they hate this country to start with, and most of them feel like we are an ignoble, bully in the world, so they will be happy to tear it down....Sad.
These aren't progressive policies. These (along with rebuilding the State Department) return the US to a position of leadership in the word. Bringing in seasoned professionals and career diplomats to try and undo some of the damage skippy and his merry band of incompetents wrought. Cede our "standing"??? Again, what dream world do you Trump supporters live in? That's what we've been doing for the last four years. All the while tearing down our government institutions and letting an incompetent fraud try to establish a dictatorship...right here in our own country. So far, the incoming Biden administration has been a breath of fresh air next to the constant farting of the Trump administration.
Falling in line with lesser nations isn't leading.
But keep diplomacy and communications flowing between not only our allies but with other countries...IS.
It's what leaders do. They lead. Unlike the current administration which has done...well...nothing.
Unless Trump shut down embassies, all of our diplomatic lines are still open. Not sure how you could claim otherwise.

Signing on to unenforceable agreements isn't leading, it is unworthy of the world's only superpower.
Diplomacy is more than having an open embassy.

It is being able to be trusted to keep your commitments, to have your word be credible, to be trusted to make good decisions.

After the Trump debacle, the US aids not trusted.

Biden has a lot of work to do mending international relations. There is nobody that Trump did not insult.
Paris and the Iran deal were bad decisions that had no benefit for the US. If Biden gets in the White House running back to those horrible deals will make him look weak and further erode our power.
Paris was a good deal for the planet.
The Iran deal got Iran to abandon their nuclear program. Trump allowed them to restart it.
Paris was stupid. No accountability, no real incentive to meet benchmarks, and no oversight or penalties. It's like a climate AA meeting where falling off the wagon has no consequences. If it was a serious deal there would be consequences for failure. It's just feel good nonsense that solves nothing.
Paris was a start of global communication on the environment. Trump replaced it with every man for himself.

John Kerry has made it clear that Paris does not go far enough
Then climate is obviously not that urgent of an issue if the world is just pussyfooting around with useless conversations and no accountable actions.

Who made John Kerry the conscience of America? If he had any political validity wouldn't he have had his turn at the presidency several years ago?

He has been a fraud since this massive anal wart first emerged decades ago.
America obviously doesn't give a damn what John Kerry thinks.

The problem is short sighted assholes like Trump who only care about themselves and short term profits.
That is why we need global cooperation
