|Biden's OCC Comptroller nominee Saule Omarova|
The Cautious Optimism Correspondent for Economic Affairs and Other Egghead Stuff has a simple, three-word question:
Q. Just three Democrats?
Maybe if Biden pulls Saule Omarova's OCC Comptroller nomination and replaces her with Lavrentiy Beria we can get four Democrats opposed.
-Omarova attended Moscow State University as a "Lenin Scholar" while the Communist Party still controlled the USSR.
-Her Moscow State thesis was "Karl Marx's Economic Analysis and the Theory of Revolution in The Capital."
-She has written extensively on Marxist economic theory.
-She has openly praised the Soviet communist system's treatment of workers.
-She has recently participated in online Marxism discussion groups.
-She has proposed the nationalization of all private bank deposit accounts under the central bank in what she calls an "overtly radical reform."
-She has proposed the nationalization of all credit and lending policy under the central bank, removing the private banking industry from credit decisions, urging the government to "effectively end banking as we know it."
-She has recently expressed her desire to bankrupt coal, oil, and gas companies ("We want them to go bankrupt if we want to tackle climate change").
-She has recently advocated using her proposed government-controlled credit system as the instrument of the fossil fuels industry's destruction ("So, the way we basically get rid of those carbon financiers is we starve them of their sources of capital.").
-She has accused Republicans with concerns about her worldview and policy proposals of racism and sexism, stating “I am an easy target. An immigrant, a woman, a minority. I don't look like your typical comptroller of the currency."
Right, those hypocritical Republicans who confirm all the white male graduates of Moscow State University who've written on Marxism, participated in online Marxism groups, praised the Soviet system, called for the nationalization of all bank accounts and credit/lending decisions, and proposed the destruction of coal, oil, and gas companies by "starving them of their sources of capital."
I'll ask again: only three Democrats have concerns about this?
