On Monday, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) demanded that the Senate must begin confirmation hearings for Joe Biden’s cabinet before Inauguration Day. Forget the fact that Biden has not even been legally confirmed as “President-Elect” yet, the Democrats want his cabinet picks ready to be confirmed on day one.
From the well of the Senate floor, the Senate minority leader gave high praise for the people who have already been announced in the mainstream media’s hopes for a Biden administration and Schumer called on the Senate to begin confirmation hearings after the January 5 Georgia Senate runoff elections. In the way he said it, it makes you wonder if he knows how the Democrats are going to cheat to win those two senate seats in Georgia. I don’t trust the Democrats as far as I can throw them, and neither should you.
“As President-Elect Biden prepares to assume office on Jan. 20, he’s beginning to announce a slate of qualified, experienced public servants who he intends to nominate to his cabinet or other key administrative positions,” Schumer prefaced his public statement, naming Biden’s core economic team led by Treasury nominee Janet Yellen who will probably do the same things she did when she was the Chairman of the Federal Reserve. Meaning, we would try to implement the same monetary policies of the miserable Obama years.
Schumer argued that the assembly “clearly has the experience, the knowledge, the prowess to meet the seriousness of this moment.” But the Obama years are remembered for a miserable economy.
“More than that, they understand the needs of all Americans because they represent all given kinds of Americans. They’ll get to work not just on rebuilding our economy, but striving to provide greater and more equitable prosperity to future generations.” What exactly are all the “given kinds of Americans” he’s talking about? Aren’t we all Americans? How does Treasury treat Americans differently?
Schumer continued, “In the midst of this once-in-a-century crisis, it’s imperative the next administration can count on the Senate to confirm its cabinet without delay.” Doesn’t it sound like Schumer knows something we don’t? Doesn’t it sound like he is completely confident that the Democrats are going to win the 2 Senate seats in Georgia, as if he has some sort of an insurance policy?
“Everyone knows that the Senate plays a pivotal role in confirming a new president’s cabinet in the midst of this crisis,” he asserted. “It’s imperative that the next administration can count on the Senate to confirm its cabinet without delay.” Why? What’s the rush? Is this just another ploy to set the perception that Joe Biden really won the election? No matter what they do most Americans will never believe Biden beat Donald Trump.
Schumer went on to assert that the early days of the Trump presidency were defined by “high-level appointments of individuals who were manifestly unqualified, plagued by ethical complaints, or swimming in conflicts-of-interest—sometimes all three.” I don’t remember the Senate working on confirmation hearings before Trump was ever officially declared president-elect, do you?
“Already Republicans are twisting themselves into pretzels to explain their opposition,” Schumer scoffed, saying the he fully expects to “see some crocodile tears spilled on the other side of the aisle over the president-elect’s cabinet nominees.” What an arrogant man.
The minority leader ended with, “The American people cannot wait to have its government working at full-force to keep them safe, defeat the virus, and get our economy back on track.” It sounds like the biggest snow job I’ve ever heard. We have to defeat the virus because people are dropping off by the 0.000000009%!
OAN’s Jack Posobiec took to social media to refer to Schumer’s demands as an “Unconstitutional coup.”
