"Joe Biden's nominee for the Comptroller of the Currency Saule Omarova on oil, coal and gas industries: 'We want them to go bankrupt if we want to tackle climate change.' Those industries are responsible for MILLIONS of Americans' paychecks," noted Steve Guest, a communications official for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in a tweet containing a video clip in which she made her controversial remarks.
Saule Omarova, who graduated college in the USSR and is now Biden’s nominee to be Comptroller of the Currency, admitted in March that the federal government would need to push fossil fuel companies towards bankruptcy to “tackle climate change,” according to a resurfaced video.
“A lot of the smaller players in that industry are going to, probably, go bankrupt in short order — at least, we want them to go bankrupt if we want to tackle climate change,” she said.
“But that creates a lot of this sort of loss of jobs, a lot of displacement, and economic fallback … so [the National Capital Management Corporation] could actually become a kind of equity investor at that point, taking over management of those companies and basically leading them through restructuring to a new technological basis and to a new technological business model, and in that sense, it’s the same type of activity but a different context," she added.
Omarova, thankfully, is facing a great deal of pushback in the U.S. Senate, which must confirm her to her post, even from some Democrats, over her beliefs and for her time in the USSR, during which she wrote a thesis titled, “Karl Marx’s Economic Analysis and the Theory of Revolution in The Capital.”
"It’s not every day that we’re presented with a nomination for a Lenin scholarship recipient who attended the Moscow State University and wants to end banking as we know it in the United States," Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., told Fox News last week.
"If her nomination advances out of the Banking Committee, it will be an easy ‘no’ vote from me. And as we’ve seen with other flawed nominations from the Biden administration, I think hers would face a similarly uphill battle in the Senate."
The network also reported that Omarova "has a history of writing about Marxism, calling the banking industry she would regulate in her potential new job the 'quintessential a-----e industry,' and calling for an end to banking 'as we know it,' by 'the complete migration of demand deposit accounts to the Federal Reserve.'"
"Demand deposit accounts are the standard checking and savings accounts most Americans have with private banks," the outlet continued.
Translated: No more private bank accounts; all monies deposited in those institutions would become the property of, and fall under the management of, big government -- which, of course, would move to impose rules about how Americans could and could not spend their own money (like yes for solar panels and no for guns).
But other Democrats are backing Omarova because at their heart, they, too, are Commies.
"Before today, I thought, red scare McCarthyism was rightly relegated to the dustbin of history," Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said. "Any American citizen who fled communist repression – whether it be FDIC Chair Jelena McWilliams or OCC nominee Saule Omarova – should be lauded for their courage and conviction. I believe that my colleagues – from both sides of the aisle – will reject such character assassinations."
Right; it's a 'red scare' to want to keep an avowed USSR-educated loyalist out of our government and away from our capitalist system.
Tell us again how the Biden regime and Democrats are not trying to destroy ('fundamentally transform') our republic.
