Biden Loses Again After Republicans Block Another Terrible Pick

It hasn’t even been two months and Joe Biden’s administration is a failure. He’s killed thousands of American jobs. Destroyed our energy independence. There is a crisis raging at the border. And he is soon to plunge America into greater debt with a $1.9 trillion spending bill.

But all that is just the tip of the iceberg for an administration that doesn’t seem to know how to get anything done. We all know that Joe himself doesn’t seem to be doing anything. He goes to bed early. Turfs work to Harris. And when he does have to do something, like give a speech, it’s a disaster.

The most telling aspect of his crumbling administration is his inability to get his cabinet members confirmed. The most notable episode was when both Republicans and Democrats opposed his OMB pick because of her history of hateful attacks online. Recently, Ted Cruz shut down hearings for Biden’s CIA pick, demanding the administration do something about Russia.

Now, yet another Biden nominee is facing setbacks and two Republicans oppose her hearings.

GOP Sens. Steve Daines of Montana and Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming have placed holds on Rep. Deb Haaland’s nomination to serve as Interior Secretary…

“I will be forcing debate on Rep. Haaland’s nomination to @Interior,” Daines tweeted. “Her record is clear: she opposes pipelines & fossil fuels, ignores science when it comes to wildlife management & wants to ban trapping on public lands.”

“Wyoming is the largest net exporter of energy in the U.S. We produce 15x the amount of energy we consume,” Lummis tweeted. “We produce the most natural gas from federal leases in the nation. Deb Haaland at Interior won’t just put Wyoming at risk, but American energy independence.” [Source: Just the News]

It seems like Republicans are finally finding their backbones.

While it’s normal for the Senate to debate and discuss cabinet picks, it seems Biden’s nominees are facing extraordinary levels of scrutiny and opposition. That’s not simply because Republicans are being difficult. Most of his nominees appear to have ties to the radical left or hold views that appeal extremely socialist in nature.

Very few of his choices seem to be moderate, cooperative individuals. Instead, they are strong partisans that want to push a far-left agenda in the federal government.

And on top of that, some of them don’t even appear to be good people. Neera Tanden made a name for herself by maliciously slandering both Republicans and Democrats on Twitter. She even provoked the anger of Bernie Sanders, who should have happily rubber-stamped her confirmation.

Biden’s pick for Interior Secretary is a radical environmentalist that opposes fossil fuels—a major source of energy for the United States. Her influence could upend major industries and lead to thousands of lost jobs.

But Biden might have thought she would sail through, because she is a Native American. Well, that might win over progressives, but not senators whose states would lose billions.

Hopefully, debate on the Senate floor will uncover much.
