Skip to comments.Far left already plotting takeover of Biden administration
Posted on 10/20/2020 10:45:36 AM PDT by Red Badger
The dirty little secret of this presidential campaign may be that while Joe Biden ran as a moderate his administration will be run by the far left, led by running mate Kamala Harris, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her squad.
The planned progressive takeover is already underway. Warren has been aggressively lobbying for a prominent Cabinet post for months after she was left out as a vice presidential pick. You can expect that lobbying effort to ratchet up to a fever pitch if Biden wins the White House.
Other Massachusetts Democrats, dominated by the far left, will be aching to join the new Democratic regime. If Biden wins, look for a stampede of liberal Bay Staters to the White House, including members of Congress, state lawmakers and academics.
And theres plenty more to come. Now theres word that Ocasio-Cortezs squad of progressives, including Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, have already penned a letter to Senate leaders Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell calling on both parties to ban high level corporate lobbyists and C Suite executives from the Cabinet presumably Bidens.
The letter may be addressed to Schumer and McConnell but its really aimed at Biden, ahead in the polls and already confidently plotting his first moves as the next president.
One of the most important lessons of the Trump administration is the need to stop putting corporate officers and lobbyists in charge of our government, said the letter, first reported by Politico. As elected leaders, we should stop trying to make unsupportable distinctions between which corporate affiliations are acceptable for government service and which are not.
Biden was already being pressured to shun Wall Street executives from his administration, but the letter takes the corporate ban to a new level.
What the letter really means is: we want to pack the Biden administration with elected leaders and others from the left. Moderates need not apply.
Sure, Biden may try to put a never Trumper Republican in his Cabinet, just to say hes being bipartisan. But if he tries to appoint other moderates to high level posts, there will be a predictable backlash from the far left, which is already suspicious of the former vice president because of negative things hes said about Warren, Bernie Sanders and Harris herself.
The vice presidential nominee is clearly no pushover, and she will be demanding a big role in who gets the top jobs in a Biden administration. Many believe that Harris will actually be the one calling the shots for the sometimes tongue-tied 77-year-old Biden. Four years from now, Harris may be the presidential nominee, stepping in for the aged Biden.
Think of that on Election Day.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY., gestures while testifying before the House Oversight Committee hearing on family separation and detention centers, on Capitol Hill in Washington. In tweets Sunday, President Donald Trump portrays the lawmakers as foreign-born troublemakers who should go back to their home countries. In fact, the lawmakers, except one, were born in the U.S. He didnt identify the women but was referring to Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib.

Biden is not going to win.
This is liberal wishfull dreaming!
Get a job!
This is obvious to both sides.
Everyone knows the Biden presidential campaign isn’t inevitably about Biden.
If that fact weren’t apparent before, with all the gaffs and lids, then I will posit this single hypothesis on you right now. If the laptop scandal had come out about any real (non puppet) candidate, the discussion within the political part, as well as on the Sunday talk shows, would be about whether he should step down and let his running mate take over the candidacy.
But since the whole point of running Biden is to shill in a symbolic moderate all the way through the election so that the radicals can take over, then they cannot abandon the shill.
So after 240 years, we’re going to hand over the nuclear weapons, the air bases, the bombers & fighters, the giant carriers, the satellites, the massive arsenals of artillery and CBW weapons, all of the entire incredible Defense/Intelligence assets to...a descendant of the Spanish Empire, an Indian woman with zero history in our country, a black woman saturated with a desire for revenge against Whitey, and of course a loony white female who simply makes up stories about her ancestry?
Maybe democracy wasn’t such a great idea after all.
Just think: Ocrazio-CORTEX as Secretary of Defense............................
AOC: Sec Interior. Warren: Ministry of Truth and Confessions. Sec Def: H Clinton.
Ill die on my feet before I live on my knees.
And then they will have a South African Truth and Reconcilation Commission Commission to confess your crimes and if you don’t you will be eliminated. Lock and load, it is coming.
Yup. That’s the real stakes of this election.
This is not a secret at all.
That's why the Founding Fathers decided on a constitutional REPUBLIC. Unfortunately, we have let it change into a democracy - mob rules.
“high level corporate lobbyists” I agree with them on this part.
The brain dead crook is already their puppet, so what's left?
Democracy was not a bad idea. Hitler did not take over Germany by force.
Germany in the 30’s, and America today were/are full of good but gutless cowards who will not openly call out evil leaders.
So called Christians in Germany who were singing in church just sang louder when the trains to the camps went by.
I die on my feet and introduce anyone trying to kill me to Jesus - in the non-evangelical manner.
Yea, I know.
The motto of the John Birch Society: “This is a Republic, not a Democracy!”
Been repeating that since 1966 when my father put it on the bumper of our ‘59 Chrysler.
Just pointing it out once again...
Everyone says that
You and me both.
It has always been a bad idea. When various Ceasars took power from the Senate and gave the mob free bread and circuses, it was the opening to the empire's downfall.
Hitler did not take over Germany by force."
Correct, he promised a better fatherland for everyone after Germany's defeat in WWI. Translate NAZI to English some time. Ironically, many on the left compare Hitler's speeches and policies about nationalism To Pres. Trump's America first position (nationalism).
Can you tell me the difference? I'm sure most who call Trump a Nazi, Hitler, Mussolini, fascist, tyrant, dictator, et al, don't know the differences.
Pure democracy is mob rule. if you re-read the post, I interpret the comment as democracy as it is currently practiced in America, because it discussed what has happened in America, which has NEVER been mob rule.
America is a constitutional republic with a democratic voting system that allows the people to change the leaders and thus the laws under a very strict guidelines.
NAZI = Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (English: National-Socialist German Workers’ Party); they officially used the acronym NSDAP.
Trump’s America first policy is similar to the others you mentioned, but it will never involve him becoming the supreme dictator without the checks and balances on his executive authority like exist in America.
Thank you for you service. My dad was the engineman (diesel mechanic) on a wooden hulled minesweeper and transport during the Korean war.
He described what sounded like the funnest job in the navy. The sweeper had large scissors that extended out beyond the hull. The mines would float, but were chained under the waterline for obvious reasons.
The scissors cut the chain and allowed the mine to come to the surface safely away from the ship and the wooden hull did not attract the magnetic ones.
The mines were rusted WWII junk that were not safe to mess with. The lucky sailor got to shoot the mine with a BAR until it sank or exploded.
My dad got a ribbon for being in the Korean theater, but his ships were never attacked. The transport must have been in waters controlled by friendly naval and air forces, and the sweeper took him all over the pacific and atlantic.
