Joe Biden thought Americans gave him and his loony liberals a mandate to transform the country. Ironically, there’s an increasing amount of evidence that Americans didn’t really want Joe Biden to win the 2020 presidential election at all.
However, from day one in the White House, the Biden administration has been trying to cram radical progressive policies down American’s throats. It’s not working. Thankfully, there are a handful of reasonable moderates who are standing in the way.
The most visible of these few Democrats willing to stand up to the radical left is Joe Manchin. Manchin’s common sense objection to Biden’s insane tax and spend “Build Back Better” legislation buried it.
Now, Manchin is exercising that same type of moderate common sense to slam the door shut on another Joe Biden nomination. Biden nominated Robert Califf to run the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
What’s strange is why Biden thought he could ramrod through a controversial choice? Barack Obama nominated Califf for the same position. Califf did manage to get confirmed for a brief tenure as the head of the FDA.
According to Manchin, he failed miserably. Manchin harshly insisted, “In the five years since Dr. Califf was confirmed, more than 400,000 Americans, and 5,000 West Virginians have died from drug-related overdose.”
Manchin said, “Califf bears a great deal of responsibility for these deaths.” The long-time West Virginia Senator was puzzled over why Joe Biden would nominate someone who failed so miserably.
Manchin asked, “Why is this administration so committed to asking each of us in the Senate to reconfirm a person who had the opportunity to make a difference but show us who he really was?” Joe Biden continues to nominate highly controversial individuals for important positions.
He has crammed through a transgender for a high-ranking spot in the Department of Health Services. Recently, Biden announced another bizarre pick for a critical government job. Biden appointed a gender-fluid person to handle our nation’s nuclear waste.
Sam Brinton has some odd ѕexual fetiѕhes as well, reportedly being into kinky animal diversions. Califf is just another in a long line of strange appointments and nominations by Joe Biden.
This time, however, it’s for a position that requires U.S. Senate approval. Joe Manchin has said no. Looks like the West Virginia Senator has slammed the door as another Biden nomination bites the dust.
