Joe Biden rescinds cabinet nomination after GOP Senator objects

President Joe Biden has reportedly been abruptly forced to withdraw the nomination of Elizabeth Klein as deputy secretary of the Department of the Interior after objections from Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).

Klein is a former Obama administration official and deputy director of the State Energy and Environmental Impact Center at the New York University School of Law. Her progressive views on clean energy were considered too strong for Murkowski, whose state relies heavily on the oil industry.

The pulled nomination is not the first for the president. Biden previously withdrew the nomination of Neera Tanden for the directorship of the Office of Management and Budget earlier in March.
Tanden’s nomination process ended after past critical tweets were made public. She had strongly criticized leaders in both parties, including attacks against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
Why would Biden withdraw support over criticism from a Republican Senator? Moderate Republican Murkowski’s support for Interior Secretary Deb Haaland’s confirmation was seen as critical.
Murkowski has faced criticisms from her own party in recent weeks. She was censured by Alaska state Republicans due to her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol building riot.
Trump has also publicly stated he will support a candidate to run against Murkowski in 2022. The Senator will face a brutal reelection campaign against her own state party, former president and many Trump supporters across the nation.
Biden has not yet noted a replacement for the withdrawn nomination. Murkowski floated Tommy Beaudreau, a former Interior official under the Obama administration and Alaskan native, as a potential nominee according to Politico.

Beaudreau serves as a lawyer at law firm Latham & Watkins’ environment, land & resources department. He also serves as global co-chair of the firm’s project siting & approvals practice.

      1. I agree. People say his dementia has worsened at a very rapid pace and many of these actions are being done by others in his name. They are to well thought out ((and I do not mean that as a compliment – they are well designed to ruin this country and inflict untold misery on us. They take a mind (minds that are strong and creative and coherent when they sit down to formulate the next ludicrous and completely unconstitutional executive order.

  1. Beijing Biden, the Biden Crime Family Patriarch is no t my president and neither is Harris ! This entire administration is a farce, it is corrupt, and nothing but a bunch of lies!

  2. And Knee Pad’s Harris is a UnVice president. Harris is a ASIAN-AMERIAN not born within the bounds of the United States. Therefore she’s not Eligible to become the
    Unpresident of th United States 🤔🤔🤔

    1. Absolutely on the money, Harris was born in Jamaica and come to the US as a very young girl. Not qualified to be president of the US.

    2. N A Noshe no isn’t she is Jamaican and India she was born in the USA but neither of her parents stayed long enough for her to be a natural citizen her MOm and her moved to Canada Her father went back to Jamaica right before she was born

  3. All this nitwit is trying to do is put all his cronies in positions they have no business being in he doesn’t care about qualifications,this moron is going to destroy this country

    1. He won’t destroy America as he would more than likely be destroyed himself with his LA-LA thoughts.

  4. This administration is a cruel joke played upon the citizens of this country. It would be a comedy except the damage being done to one of the most successful nations in history is a tragedy that without some Devine intervention will be beyond redemption. No help coming from Republicans. must be totally comfortable in their respective niches, Hell, why rock the boat.
    I totally concur with Mellie, Teresa, and Marie

  5. Biden seems to be hiring al Obama misfits into high government positions. Was that part of the deal to get him elected?

    1. John he isn’t smart enough to think for himself. Most PRES. IQ. is above 159/+ foe almost all presidents in the past, Bidens is somewhere between 100 to 115 as test have proven

  6. Biden will never be MY president. He is a sham, a crook, and never my president, shpould not be in White House, need’s to be in an OLD FOLK’s home.

  7. Lisa is DEFINITELY feeling the heat in Alaska from her fellow ALASKANS! The Primary will definitely be interesting!

  8. The advertisements are placed in between parts of the article in such a way l have extreme difficulty finishing the story. I might be too old to keep up mentally.

    1. It’s an annoying distraction. We all have to maneuver the garbage. Nobody is as mentally old or challenged as Bumbling Osama Bin biden. You’re not a traitor or tripping upstairs, right? As one of us, we’ve got you’re back. As one of them, they stab you in the back. 😉

  9. If the Biden administration knew that the Ammonia Economy is starting then it would be easier for the Oil/Gas Industry to buy into Clean Ammonia Energy that would replace the use of Oil but utilize Natural Gas initially to efficiently produce Ammonia. Direct Ammonia Fuel Cells have been recently demonstrated that will change the auto industry for decades. Ammonia Production and Distribution is sustainable and a very good Clean Energy candidate for Transportation. Other Countries are already demonstrating building and using Ammonia-fueled ships. Let’s hope someone in government understands what I am saying about the Ammonia Economy.

  10. Sure hope Sarah Palin is getting ready for the primaries in Alaska. She will be great alongside Trump campaigning for her. It will be fun to watch as the RINO’s go down. We will not miss them.

  11. Everybody just does nt know what s coming in the next few months military is taking over and trump will be back in and 98 percent democrates along with obama and Clinton’s will be going to prison.

  12. Gee Imagine if GOP united on some issues, Biden recalls, ends XYZ etc wow.
    But damn RINOs ruin effort day 1

  13. ALL of the Democrats would be considered to be a GIANT BASKET of DEPLORABLES !!!!!!!!!!!!! Sound Familiar ?????? But TRUE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. I like the fact that the RINO Murkowski stopped Biden’s nominee, however, I would not support anybody Murkowski supports for any position.

  15. Anyone as smart as Joe Biden knows he not the President only a empty suit used by the puppet masters. President Trump has got this !


    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.


    Can you continue to tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands upon thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

    Members of the House

    Members of the Senate


    Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

  17. Biden can’t remember who he put in when he put them in or how he put then in because he doesn’t even know who put them in

  18. Biden n harris nothing but frauds n needs to be removed an arrested along with Pelosi n obama n schumer . They only care bout destroying our country n helping Illegals . NOT our country or citizens.

  19. Agree with all posts. We need to stop talking and start doing! Demand impeachment of Biden and Harris, demand the speaker’s chair be vacated and Piglosi out and get Schumer out of the senate. Get Trump back in office where he belongs!

  20. The Biden and Harris regime have made this country the laughing stock of the world. We are no longer respected or feared as America should be and was under President Trump’s Administration. I can’t help but wonder if the people that voted them in are asking themselves ” WHAT THE HELL DID WE DO?? ” If not they should be. NEVER forget that by the time the German people realized the path that Hitler was taking them down it was TOO LATE!!!

  21. Did everyone forget that murky owey ski was a Democrat before she switched side to win a election? She is a Democrat at heart. She cannot be trusted and I can’t believe Alaskans trusted her with their future.
