In case anyone were in any doubt what a Biden presidency would mean, would-be King Alligator is already assembling his army of swamp monsters and getting ready to pump a river of stagnant slime back into Washington.

The lickspittle press are singing the praises of a “return to normalcy” – the normalcy which loaded Americans with decades of pointless, endless wars, the Global Financial Crisis, mass unemployment, and the opioid epidemic that ravaged a rusted-out Middle America while the two coastal megalopolises rolled in the muddy rewards of globalism.

It’s also the “normalcy” which paid literal pallet-loads of cash to a brutal Middle Eastern theocracy and virtually guaranteed that it would develop nuclear weapons without reprisal, and allowed China free rein to extend its iron rule across the South China Sea and turn the Pacific into a Chinese lake.

Joe Biden’s putative cabinet reads like a mud-stained warning sign sinking into the swamp mud: Janet Yellen, Antony Blinken, Avril Haines. To hammer home the point that everything old and failed is new again, there’s even a spot for John Kerry as – you can’t make this up – “climate change envoy”.

Perhaps most telling of all, though, is that Biden is rewarding one of the most egregious Swamp Rats, none other than Jake Sullivan.

President-elect Joe Biden’s expected pick for national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, acknowledged to a House committee that he told reporters in 2016 that the Trump campaign may have had ties with Russia.

Leaving aside that Biden is not “president-elect”, Sullivan is the Deep State incarnate. A slithering Democratic apparatchik who was one of the prime movers in the baseless conspiracy theory that did more than anything else to undermine the Trump administration.

Sullivan, who served as Vice President Biden’s national security adviser, told the House Intelligence Committee in December 2017 that he revealed his suspicions about collusion to reporters before the 2016 presidential election. Fox News first reported the rumor spreading admission Monday.

He had been an adviser for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and revealed he met with reporters and producers from Fox, CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS[…]

He also raised concerns about campaign officials Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and Carter Page.

It was later revealed that Page was the subject of a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant that was based in part on unverified claims in Christopher Steele’s dossier[…]

Sullivan reportedly was also part of a “political strike force” made up of Obama administration officials that acted as a shadow government to weaponize foreign-policy disputes.

So, an unelected cabal of an ousted administration which secretly operated for four years to undermine the legitimately-elected president and spread knowing lies in an effort to smear innocent individuals and bring down the government?

There used to be a word for that: starts with “T” and ends with “reason”.

Instead of being hanged, drawn and quartered like in the good old days, such swamp monsters are now rewarded with high office.

Yep, it’s a “return to normalcy”, alright.
