It doesn’t take a “political analyst,” an “expert” or even an “insider” to tell you that President Joe Biden takes care of his friends and people that know how to play ball. If you don’t play ball…well, just ask the former Ukrainian prosecutor that the Obama administration - under the guidance of Biden - wanted to be fired or they would withhold aid money to the country.
Apparently, Big Tech will be able to write its own ticket over the next four years.
According to The Federalist:
According to The Intercept reporting with The American Prospect, Renata Hesse, a former Obama Justice Department official who went on to work for Google during the Trump years, is a top contender to lead the antitrust division at the DOJ during a pivotal moment for the California tech giants facing intense pressure from government regulators on both sides of the aisle. While in private practice, Hesse played a primary role in the Amazon merger with Whole Foods and also represented major pharmaceutical giants.
No conflict of interests there, huh? It’s kind of like having the former head of the CIA become the president — oh wait, that already happened once upon a time.
Hesse is a woman that once said that if people don’t like Google’s policies, practices and business model it’s “really easy to switch” to another company.
Basically, if you don’t like it, tough.
With many Biden appointees being holdovers from former president Barack Obama’s administration, could this be what essentially amounts to a third term for the former president? Will Big Tech be the “thought police” for this administration, as we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks with the excessive banning of accounts across most social media platforms?
With the Biden administration in its infancy, we’re left with more questions than answers after watching a presidential candidate get elected without campaigning very much at all.
