Biden’s Animal Farm Picks…
Have you seen the bigger
In their starched white shirts?
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt,
In their eyes there's
What they need's a damn good whacking
In Aesop's Fable The Ass and His Purchaser, a man looking to buy a donkey wanted to test the animal before completing the purchase. So he put the donkey in his field with the other donkeys to see what would happen.
The donkey immediately strayed from the majority of the herd and cozied up to the laziest donkey of all.
Seeing that, the man led the donkey back to his owner. When the owner asked how he could judge the donkey's character so quickly the man explained, "I didn't even need to see how he worked. I knew he would be just like the one he chose to be his friend."
Fables are popular because they tell the story of the way things in life really work. In business, when someone takes over a department or company, that person promotes those he or she likes to positions of authority. The new manager seeks out those who have a philosophy, work ethic and disposition similar to his.
One would expect a president to do the same thing. After all, a president is elected — supposedly — based on the vision, ideas and proposals he championed during the campaign. It would then make sense that he would put in place those who supported his vision and would therefore be enthusiastic in working to achieve it.
So who are President Biden's friends, and who has he put in charge of the effort to enact his policies? And what do the friends he has chosen and the people he has put in positions of authority in his administration say about him?
The Washington Free Beacon said it succinctly: "Not only is Biden filling his administration with the same people who made such a hash of things from 2009 to 2017. He has also selected, for some of the most important offices, progressive ideologues who believe it is the bureaucracy's job to pick new fights in the culture war."
Following is a list of some of Biden's friends, advisors and people charged with enacting his policies:
- Biden has chosen perhaps the worst, and the least popular governor in the U.S., to be Commerce Secretary.
The Justice Department launched an investigation into Rhode
Island's Health and Human Services Department because Gina Raimondo's
administration rubber-stamped a massive overhaul of the state's
welfare-distribution program that left thousands without Medicare or food
assistance for months. The U.S. Agriculture Department levied an $800,000 fine
on the state, and the ACLU sued the health department. And she chose an
unqualified woman to lead her state's children's-services department.
The Governess co-chaired the failed Bloomberg presidential campaign and was "unqualified," as Democrats love to shout, for the original position Biden wanted to give her — health and human services. She is no more qualified for this position than she was for that role.
- Biden will nominate New Mexico Rep. Deb Haaland to lead the Interior Department. She'll be the first Native American to hold the post.
The problem is, she'll be leading the department that will be on the front lines of Biden's sure-to-be-harmful war on the nonsensical [read: fake] issue of "climate change." Biden will stop new oil and gas drilling on public lands and has said that he will rejoin the Paris Climate Accords — which lets polluters off scot-free and punishes American industry.
She said in a recent interview. "We don't want to go back to normal, right? We don't want to go back to where we were because that economy wasn't working for a lot of people."
- Biden will install California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to oversee the vast Department of Health and Human Services.
He's a proponent of socialized medicine for all. The Washington Examiner reports that, "As attorney general, Becerra has pressed Catholic hospitals inappropriately to perform abortions … he has used his power to persecute pro-life activists for exposing Planned Parenthood's trafficking in human body parts. His voting record in Congress was 100% pro-abortion." He's also an anti-gunner who wants to be able to tell you what guns you should and shouldn't be allowed to buy.
- Biden will choose a military officer for the civilian role of Secretary of Defense.
Retired general Lloyd Austin is the former CENTCOM commander, and Biden chose him because, reportedly, he had a good relationship with Joe's son Beau Biden.
- For his national security, Biden will choose former State Department official Jake Sullivan.
According to classified emails made public under lawsuits from the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch, Sullivan — soon to be a national security advisor, mind you — was deeply involved in the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal which saw her and her associates mishandle classified information about America on a private email server.
- Biden wants Antony Blinken to be his secretary of state.
He's not just your average warmonger. He wants to strike Syria, Iran, and anyone else who hasn't been bombed as of yet. Responsiblestatecraft.org describes him thusly: Blinken "agreed with some of the biggest foreign policy mistakes that Biden and Obama made, and he has tended to be more of an interventionist than both of them."
- Biden has picked Gina McCarthy, head of the EPA under Obama and president of the leftist environmental group National Resources Defense Council, to become his "climate czar."
She's another climate propagandist.
- Biden announced Miguel Cardona would be his pick for education secretary.
The Washington Times reported that Cardona spent most of his short tenure in charge of Connecticut public schools dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. He "took an aggressive stance in favor of keeping schools open, a position that put him at odds with the powerful teachers unions."
Excellent, except that he's still a lifelong proponent of our non-education system, and wants kids in the indoctrination centers no matter what. "There is no substitute for in-classroom learning," he said in an interview.
Also, Susan Rice will reappear to ply her duplicitousness to domestic policy. Denis McDonough, Obama's chief of staff during the time Obama was trying to have the Syrian government overthrown, will be the secretary for Veterans' Affairs.
These are just a few of the folks who have occupied or currently occupy Biden's inner circle. He was passed off by the mainstream media as being a centrist and moderate, but many of his friends are anything but that, and some are quite radical. And when you parse some of his words or find video or audio from several years ago you know that Biden himself has some radical views.
But the media ignored Biden's love for Obama's radical friends and his own ties to communists. That, and Biden's misleading rhetoric led many otherwise thoughtful and good people down the primrose path, and they voted him without realizing what they were getting.
But as the truth gets out about his associates, the cover is
coming off. He's becoming known by the company he keeps, as well as his own

From The Washington Post, May 1: “A new Democratic-aligned political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former head of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, is planning to deploy technology originally developed to counter Islamic State propaganda in service of a domestic political goal — to combat online efforts to promote President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.”
The outfit was called Defeat Disinfo. It deployed an artificial intelligence tool first spun up by the Pentagon. The purpose — combating Trump’s social media posts, creating “counter-narratives” via a network of “paid influencers.”
