Biden picks Communist for Comptroller

By Rich Rostron

President Joe Biden has nominated Saule Omorova to be our national Comptroller of the Currency. Saule Omarova is referred to as "a self-proclaimed radical" Cornell University law school professor.

According to its Website, The Office of Comptroller of Currency states that its mission is "To ensure that national banks and federal savings associations operate in a safe and sound manner, provide fair access to financial services, treat customers fairly, and comply with applicable laws and regulations." The OCC is an independent branch of the Treasury Department.

Omarova was born in the Soviet Union and, according to a video reported in the New York Post, said that she "wants coal, oil and gas industries 'to go bankrupt.' " She made those comments last February at a "Social Wealth Seminar."

In the same NYPost story, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) referred to Omarova as "a grave threat to our economy".

"She wants to destroy energy independence, wants to nationalize consumer banks, & she has called to 'effectively end banking as we know it.' ", Cruz Tweeted.

The Huffington Post, however, portrays the battle of Omarova's nomination as based on Republicans stirring up visions of a "Red Scare." In a Huffington Post article by Paul Blumenthal from Oct. 13, the writer argues, "Their (Republicans) main line of attack is not about her qualifications, but about her place of birth: the former Soviet Union." He goes on to quote Patricia McCoy, "A financial law expert at Boston College of Law and a friend of Omarova" as saying, "She is the most patriotic person I know."

The defense of Omarova, however, seems to fly in the face of comments she's made in the past, and her refusal to release her thesis from Moscow University. That thesis, mentioned in the same Huffington Post article, is titled: "Karl Marx's Economic Analysis and the Theory of Revolution in The Capital."

As radical as she may be, her nomination could be confirmed, with Democrats having tacit control of the Senate (48 Democrats and 2 Independents vs. 50 Republicans), often leaving the tie breaker to VP Kamala Harris.

Omarova has previously worked as a special advisor in the Treasury Department during the George W Bush administration. She graduated from Moscow State University in 1989 and moved to the United States in 1991 where she attained a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. She later received a J.D. degree from Northwestern University's Pritzker School of Law (https://wealthyspy.com/saule-omarova/).

The List of Biden's Radical Nominees is long.

According to numerous other articles, Omarova is only one in a long line of radical Leftists nominated by Biden. Kylee Zempel, of The Federalist, ran an article titled "Here Are Joe 'Moderate' Biden's 10 Most Insanely Radical Nominees."

Her list includes:
Joe Biden ran for president as a self-proclaimed "moderate".

In what way do these choices follow that promise?
