Will the “American Deep State” persist in the Biden candidacy?

In the complex realm of American politics, few terms have generated as much controversy and intrigue as the “deep state.” Certainly it is a term that was once sidelined in the realm of conspiracy theories, but today the concept of a shadowy figure influencing political outcomes has increasingly entered mainstream discourse.

As the 2024 presidential election approaches, questions are being raised about whether the so-called deep state will play a decisive role not only in ensuring President Joe Biden’s re-election but also in re-electing him so that his interests are secured.

What exactly is this “deep state”?

Joe Biden’s presidency has faced plenty of criticism over his handling of the border crisis, rising inflation and an increasingly polarized political climate. On the international stage, Biden may have aimed to restore America’s global leadership, but the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan and ongoing tensions with China and Russia have been controversial downsides to his presidency.

But not at all negative for the US military-industrial complex. More than 7 billion Dollars paid for military equipment abandoned by the US military in Afghanistan was now being asked to be replenished by American companies.

Additionally, most US aid to Ukraine goes to US companies.

Against this backdrop, whispers of deep state influence have grown louder. Proponents of this theory argue that entrenched bureaucrats, intelligence officials, and politicians direct American national policy to protect their own interests rather than the interests of the American nation.

Whether one subscribes to this belief or not, the idea begs the question: if such a power as the deep state exists, would it be betting on Biden’s re-election bid because it would have a vested interest in his continued tenure and obviously his policies?

In the aftermath of the Trump-Biden debate

Unfortunately, harsh reality has fallen hard on Biden’s re-election. The recent debate with Donald Trump was a terrible disaster for his candidacy. In particular, after this verbal confrontation there was a deep, broad and aggressive panic in the Democratic Party with party strategists, elected officials and funders trying to abandon the current president’s re-election bid. And these are words that were then spoken on air on the CNN channel that hosted the debate.

Undoubtedly, this debate was further evidence that Biden’s approval rating in the US public has sunk and that his age has been a point of concern even among his supporters. Some even wonder if he should be president of the US right now, since he is the main factor in deciding the use of the US nuclear arsenal.

Moreover, the rise of intra-party dynamics cannot be ignored. The Democratic Party itself is far from monolithic, with progressives and moderates often at odds. Figures like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez represent an important wing of the party that could push for a different candidate, one more aligned with their vision of transformative change. The interplay between these factions will undoubtedly affect the appointment process.

As the primary season approaches, Biden’s path to re-election will likely depend on a confluence of factors, from his administration’s continued policy failures to the emerging political landscape within the Democratic Party.

But as tensions rise within the Democratic Party, whispers of a possible change in the nomination are growing louder. With the Democratic National Convention taking place in Chicago from August 19-22, insiders are speculating that a dramatic turn of events could unfold. If Biden, the current favorite for the final nomination, continues to face growing controversy and declining support, the Democratic Party may consider nominating an alternative candidate.

The stakes are high and the convention in Chicago could become the stage for a crucial decision that will shape the future of the party and its chances in the upcoming elections. The atmosphere is expected to be charged with anticipation as delegates, activists and media converge to witness what could be a historic, game-changing moment for the Democratic Party.

What is the deep state?

The concept of the deep state seems to be about corporate and political groups that pull the strings in favor of certain established interests of certain economic and political actors.

These companies and political actors prefer a certain type of government with a weak and willing president to fulfill their desired courses of action in the economic and political arena at the international level.

We are not claiming that this is the deep state, but there are real events happening around the world that fall into the category of such deep state interests by corporations and political actors.

What could the deep state be?

For example, it is an obvious fact that financial companies like Blackrock and Vanguard Group, politicians with shares in military-industrial companies and even Israel as a political state actor are fulfilling their interests with current US policies.

Particularly on US aggression towards Russia, Senator Lindsey Graham bluntly stated on the CBS show “Face the Nation” on June 10, 2024 that Ukraine is a “gold mine” with ores and rare earths worth nearly $12 trillion. dollars that he would not want to give to Putin and Xi Jinping. Biden politics supports this line of sacrificing every last Ukrainian for the deep state to siphon their country’s wealth. Already companies like Blackrock have bought land in Ukraine based on the Zelensky legislation, which has rightly made Russia ask the Ukrainians why they are fighting, to have their land and country seized by foreign interests?

Since Israel’s founding in 1948, the military aid it has received from the United States amounts to $158 billion (not adjusted for inflation), making it the largest recipient of American aid in history.

Since the start of Israel’s war with Hamas on October 7, 2023, the United States has enacted legislation providing at least $12.5 billion in military aid to Israel, which includes $3.8 billion from a March 2024 bill and $8.7 billion from the April 2024 Supplemental Appropriations Act.

Israel is the only country that actively interferes in US elections through AIPAC, boasting that its endorsed candidates are getting elected. It is also the only country with such actions that is not classified as a foreign agent by the US authorities (Foreign Agents Registration Act).

In addition, the aforementioned Senator Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez has claimed that Congressional support for Israel is driven by fear of AIPAC, not conscience, and has accused Israel of genocide in Gaza.

The interests and what can be done with the candidacy of Biden

After the recent debate, speculation surrounding President Biden’s potential re-election bid has intensified. While Biden has stated his intention to run for a second term, several factors could affect whether he ultimately follows that path. His approval ratings, party support and ability to address key policy issues will be critical.

Additionally, concerns about his age and health are likely to be scrutinized by supporters and opponents alike. The Democratic Party must also consider emerging leaders within its ranks who could bring fresh perspectives and renewed energy to the 2024 campaign.

Even if President Biden is determined to seek re-election, political and corporate interests could significantly influence his decision. Within the Democratic Party, factions may push for a new candidate if they believe Biden’s age or performance could jeopardize their chances in the general election.

Major party donors and corporate backers, whose financial support is vital to a successful campaign, may prefer another candidate who aligns with their interests and is seen as more electable.

Moreover, if influential Democratic figures and interest groups rally around an alternative candidate, Biden could face increasing pressure to drop out for the sake of party unity and campaign strategy.

Ultimately, while Biden’s personal desire to run is an important factor, surely the broader political and economic landscape will play a critical role in shaping his candidacy prospects.

The interests at stake are huge, and although Trump is not entirely a sixth-line of the above policies, he is certainly a politician who would not want to force Russia more than the US continues to profit only economically, and as he often states that he does not want the metastasize to nuclear war.
