After Joe Manchin’s Opposition, Neera Tanden in Danger of Not Being Confirmed as Joe Biden’s Budget Director

She’s a controversial establishment Democrat known for attacking Republican politicians and Bernie Sanders.

President Joe Biden’s pick to lead the White House Office of Management and Budget could very well be denied confirmation.

Neera Tanden is in danger of losing her nomination after Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said on Friday that he would oppose her. If every Republican voted against Tanden, which is a possibility, all it would take is Manchin’s opposition to deny her the post.

I have carefully reviewed Neera Tanden’s public statements and tweets that were personally directed towards my colleagues on both sides of the aisle from Senator Sanders to Senator McConnell and others. I believe her overtly partisan statements will have a toxic and detrimental impact on the important working relationship between members of Congress and the next director of the Office of Management and Budget,” Manchin said in a statement. “For this reason, I cannot support her nomination. As I have said before, we must take meaningful steps to end the political division and dysfunction that pervades our politics. At a time of grave crisis, it is more important than ever that we chart a new bipartisan course that helps address the many serious challenges facing our nation.”

Tanden is a controversial figure. She is an establishment Democrat who has made a name for herself fiercely criticizing Republican politicians and even Senator Bernie Sanders, particularly through Twitter. She has compared Mitch McConnell to Voldemort, said that “vampires have more heart than Ted Cruz,” and called Susan Collins “the worst” over her decision to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. And that’s just the very tip of the iceberg.

At one of her confirmation hearings she said she regretted using such language and takes responsibility for it, though it’s highly unlikely that that’s satisfying Republican senators, Joe Manchin, and perhaps Bernie Sanders. Politicians and political operatives criticize each other all the time, but one can hardly blame senators for not wanting to confirm someone who had personally insulted them.

President Biden has refused to pull his nomination of Tanden and claims that she’ll get the votes to be confirmed. Democratic senators—and maybe even the president and Vice President Harris—are surely hard at work trying to convince Manchin to renege on his opposition. They might also be trying to convince Mitt Romney or Lisa Murkowski to confirm Tanden in case Manchin can’t be persuaded. It will be interesting to see how the vote shakes out.

RINO Maria Salazar Challenges Former Trump Advisor Steven Miller on America First Immigration Policy

This freshman is a dangerous RINO.

Published

on

Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) has barely been in the federal swamp for a month, and she is already working to undermine former president Donald Trump’s “America First” immigration agenda.

Salazar, who was a journalist with the fake news media before running for Congress, took aim at former Trump advisor Stephen Miller, who was credited as the force behind President Trump’s strongest immigration policies. She slammed Miller on a call with her House colleagues to ingratiate herself with the globalists and secure those fat Chamber of Koch checks.

Politico broke the news about the heated exchange between Salazar and Miller, which apparently continued in private as well:

Salazar is repeating her corporate-sponsored talking points, but President Trump proved her conventional wisdom wrong in 2020. Trump brought in Hispanics to the Republican Party unlike any political figure before him by standing for the rule of law against marauding Black Lives Matter terrorists and other left-wing thugs at war with civilization.

Big League Politics has reported on Hispanics supporting Trump because they understand the crime and degeneracy that illegal immigration brings to America:

The media constantly fear-mongered about president Donald Trump’s immigration policies ever since he declared his run for office and continued to do so well into his presidency.

The conventional wisdom was that these measures would repel Hispanics across the nation and turn them into a monolithic vote for the Democrat Party. 

That did not turn out to be the case in 2020. Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner wrote that Trump’s immigration hawk policies “won broad bipartisan and Hispanic support in the election and even turned several border towns red for the first time in years.”

Per two reviews, a majority of Hispanics and Democrats were in favor of the Trump administration’s efforts to limit immigration during the Wuhan virus pandemic. Similarly, voters in southern border counties reacted negatively to the radical Left’s attacks levied against U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform conducted a voter exit survey, where it found that 78 percent of those surveyed believe immigration was an “important” issue for them and played a huge role in who they ended up pulling the lever for. 80 percent supported Trump’s border closure to prevent the Wuhan virus from spreading.

Similarly, Zogby Analytics released a survey showing that 60 percent of Hispanics and 54 percent of Democrats support Trump’s immigration reductions to protect American jobs. Zogby also found similar views among those surveyed about the cuts being good to “maintain our nation’s population.”

FAIR President Dan Stein believes that the election results serve as a warning to Joe Biden and his desire to open up the borders and pass an amnesty bill for the millions of illegal aliens residing in the U.S.

“The election results clearly do not indicate that President-elect Biden has a mandate to institute radical immigration policies being promoted by his party’s far-left wing that include erasing borders and flooding the country with millions of new legal and illegal immigrants,” Stein declared. The FAIR president cited a 76 percent supermajority of those surveyed who are in favor of immigration restriction.

By standing against immigration patriotism and the MAGA agenda, Salazar has exposed herself as a RINO. She will be promoted by the GOP establishment along other frauds like Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) as they attempt to nullify President Trump’s legacy.
