Biden, Kamala and the White House!

The USA finally has a new President who will lead it for next four years. With Jeo Biden securing his entry to White House and making Donald Trump leave after a neck to neck fight. People in electing 46th president United States of America voted the highest till now. Biden made it to the house getting the highest votes in the history of America. While as Joe made history in getting highest votes he also made history by being the oldest President of USA. Before being elected as President Biden has been on different positions in the Administration of US. He has been Vice President in Obama’s administration, he has been US senator, Chair of the “Senate Foreign Relations Committee”, Chair of “International Narcotics Control Caucus”, Chair of the “Senate Judiciary Committee” & has also been Member of the “New Castle Country Council” from the 4th district. This means that Biden has a good experience of US administration indicating he will be able to handle the affairs of US in better way and that’s what people of US need as they are fed up with Trump’s administration which they over threw with a huge number of votes & highest in the history of US elections. People celebrating the win of Biden spoke much about the mood of the people. The policies of Trump made people vote against him in large numbers. The voting for Jeo Biden has been much higher than any other elections. He’s the president with huge mandate. Well as we know no US person who makes up to the position to run for the presidential elections is without record of war crimes. As Biden being chair of many US communities must be involved in Declaring any country so called threat to “World Peace” . As history is witness what US has done for protecting the so called World peace. Killing innocents and destroying countries is the hallmark of US and still projects itself as a country that respects Human Rights of other people & so called Rights defender for other countries. Not caring about the sovereignty of the other countries. It must be noted that US has never allowed it’s land to be used for war benefits. If we discuss how innocent US and it’s Presidents have been words will fall short but their actual innocence cannot be proven. Let’s cut short and see what has been the track record of the person on whom people from every corner of world has pinned hope. Jeo Biden opposed the Gulf War of 1991, but on the other hand supported expanding the NATO alliance into Europe and also it’s intervention in the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s. He also supported the resolution authorizing the 2002 Iraq War but opposed the surge war of US troops. So he has been the person behind some wars costing human lives & property but has been very critical at some points. Seems this will make him a great President as a person who can make calculative decisions. That’s what Donald Trump somewhere always lacked. His speeches his actions and his decisions as President that he made and is making has fed up the people of USA which made them vote as never before and made Trump walk out of the White house. But he’s stuck with him challenging the counting in Supreme court and some places he has lost the legal fight but he’s still stuck to office and is still saying that he has won the elections and will not leave the White House. His officials in a recent press conference when asked about the Trump leaving House. He said laughing “We will have a smooth transformation to Trump 2.0″ and then again laughed. What made him say so even when he has 217 and Biden 290? Well he being a Modi friend must be thinking to buy some Democrats to form the government as happened in Madhya Predesh and many more. But will it happen the way it happens in India? Well that’s where we have to wait till January 20 2021 the day Biden the President elect will take the office. While Jeo Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee from 1987 to 1995. Joe worked on drug polices, crime prevention, and civil liberties issues. He also led efforts to pass the violent crime control and law Enforcement Act and the violence against women Act and oversaw six U. S Supreme court confirmation hearings, including the contentious hearings for Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas. So it proves where he is good with handling foreign affairs he’s also able to see the issues within the country and also makes sure that the country’s justice is moving fast track. If in his tenure he’s able to handle the justice system within the country he will be regarded as one of the best Presidents in US and may get time to be in office for the next tenure. Well he will get another when Trump let’s him in for the first time. Taking that on a lighter note that’s USA not India where things happen on the basis of what politicians say but happens what the law of the land says. Will the Biden be able to give a good justice system to people of USA or not will be also an interesting thing to see with his international polices. Especially how he will be dealing with Pakistan, Turkey china and especially Iran and North Korea will an important thing of his tenure. Biden was the fourth most senior senator when he resigned to serve as Vice president in Obama Administration in 2008 and the again in 2012 when Obama was elected to office as President of US .
As Vice president of Obama, Biden oversaw infrastructure spending in 2009 to counteract the Great Recession. His negotiations with congressional Republicans helped pass legislation including the 2010 Tax Relief Act, which resolved a taxation deadlock; the Budget Control Act of 2011, which resolved a debt ceiling crisis; and the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, which addressed the impending “fiscal cliff”. He also led efforts to pass the United States–Russia New START treaty, supported military intervention in Libya, and helped formulate U.S. policy toward Iraq through the withdrawal of U.S. troops in 2011. Following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, he led the Gun Violence Task Force. In January 2017, Obama awarded Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom with distinction. India at present time India is in Great Recession as Per RBI. It must be noted that Biden has been a strong critic of CAA, NCR, Human rights situation India especially the revocation of Special status of Jammu and Kashmir. He strongly criticized the way modi dealt with the situation in jammu and Kashmir after the revocation. And how can we forget Kamala Harris who was asked a question about Kashmir when Kashmir was under seage after the revocation she said “People of Kashmir shouldn’t feel alone”. This must be a clear message to people in power in India what’s going to be policy of Biden – kamala when it will come to Kashmir. In all what will be interesting to see is how Biden will be able to handle the Afghanistan affairs. How will he see turkey and especially how will he deal with Iran. We must remember the line that Vice president elect Kamala said in her first speech after being the VP elect “Democracy Needs sacrifices ” and let’s see will Biden acutally be the president of USA or he will be Democratic President. As he said in his speech ” I ran campaign as Democratic candidate but I will run this country as President of USA ” It must be noted before successfully running as President he failed twice in 1988 and again in 2008 in presidental campaign as Democratic Presidential nominee. Now let’s see his foreign policies towards countries torn up by USA’s so called peace process killing thousands of people. Will he call for more peace processes or will let them have their sovereignty.
