Report: Congress prepares for bitter fight over Biden cabinet nominees

The mainstream media has been laser-focused on the upcoming inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, but the drama could intensify to levels unseen in previous administrations as his Cabinet nominees prepare to face their Senate confirmation hearings.

According to Fox News, on Tuesday, the first round of hearings will begin, with Treasury secretary nominee Janet Yellen, Director of National Intelligence pick Avril Haines and Homeland Security secretary nominee Alejandro Mayork all appearing before the appropriate Senate committees for questioning. 

Other Tuesday hearings including Biden’s pick for secretary of state, Anthony Blinken, and Defense secretary nominee Lloyd J. Austin III will go in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee to make his case.

Transportation secretary nominee Pete Buttigieg will face his first round of hearings on Thursday before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. He’s expected to have a tough time as Republicans will likely grill him on what exactly his qualifications are for holding such a high-level position.

Some of the nominees have experience in the realm of being grilled by the Senate, while others will be experiencing their first time and will surely meet plenty of opposition from Republican senators — some of which have already gone on the record to indicate that it’ll be a tough sell for many of them.

Sen. Marco Rubio expressed that sentiment back in November, writing in a tweet that he has no interest in reverting America back to how it was under the administration of former President Barack Obama.

Keep in mind that these initial hearings are only in front of relevant committees and according to NPR, it’s unclear when each nominee will move to face hearings on the full Senate floor for a vote.

But after what Trump’s nominees went through as they faced down Democratic senators over the past four years, it’s not a stretch to assume that there will likely be some level of payback from Republicans this time around.

      1. I just now saw a little bit of news and Bitme was signing all these executive orders and the reporters started asking questions and they were all told to leave. PEOPLE, we have now entered the TWILIGHT ZONE.

    1. I agree with Richard! None should be confirmed he’s too busy trying to put “the VillagebPeople” in office their qualifications be damned! Typical Biden and Dem party to put people who they can control!

      1. Impeach President Obama’s for spying on Trump campaign and especially for Bengazi!! If Trump can be impeached as a private citizen do can Obama who has actual evidence toward him! Also impeach Biden starting Now he was in with Obama when Gen. Flynnn was tortured and Obsma knew all about Clinton’s server and 30,000 missing emails!! Watch out for what the Dems are asking for Karma is a b——tch

          1. Mark Rubio you are just another Establishment Rino in disguise 🥸! I have been watching you these last 4 years bec I believed you had a promising future in 2016! But you showed your true colors (were u stand) you laid low n didn’t speak up or stand up for much so you wouldn’t ruffle many establishment feathers, almost like they were grooming you for 2024! You are just trying to get Trump supporters to stay in the Republican Party and see you as their new champion!

    1. Yes to your question. They are all criminals. This is a criminal administration, beginning with the illegal election.

  1. Jo can not have nightmares because he lives in the dark of the dims house of evil . What he has are lightmares and not daymares . Just Correcting the post

  2. I’d like to know who is really running Joe’s Show? I get the feeling He really doesn’t even know 1/2 of these
    people and why they should be in office. Considering He doesn’t know where he is 1/2 the time. Backwards is
    a terrible direction to head.

  3. Let us began to prepare for next years and the U.S. House races. We need the house to bring Impeachment against Bill Clinton, Obama and Biden. The Democrats have opened the door lets go in. Then we will go for the House and Senate. The war is just starting. America has become a nation of tyrants and you can see who they are by the actions in D.C. today compared to 2017.

    1. Don’t forget the Democrats cheated on this election and they’re going to cheat on all of them in the years to come to get whoever they want into office that is sad we’re going to have to have a civil war to change everything and throw Washington Democrats in jail and throw away the key 🗝️

  4. Treat them as bad as Trump’s nominees were do not let them off the hook. Do not vote for them. Keep Trump’s policies in mind. I am already missing Trump it is very hard not to be able to see him working for America and we the American people. It is really killing me.

  5. Biden should have declined the Presidency. He has no integrity or morals, as does all of his family, thus he’s not qualified to be the leader of the world.

  6. Biden is like a gyssie in charge of a bingo game for blind people and the blind people are the ones that voted for the idiot…

  7. Fair and diligent vetting of their credentials for appointment is not “pay back”, it’s called remembering the pledge to uphold the Constitution. If the nominees can’t stand the heat. they will demonstrate their cooking credentials.

  8. Well will be ok not sure these people have made threats and have said vile things about half the voters They either are sick or really believe their crap

  9. Don’t let any of them in. He didn’t choose by experience but wha ethnicity they were. I love the transgender..some kind of ugly. She took her mother out of the nursing home and then told them to put the elderly with covid back in the nursing homes. She in charge of Health

  10. Always remember that they will keep you in lies and uniformed. That is NO1 Marxist rule. Eastern Europeans had lived in it 40 years.

  11. Does it matter. Democrats will go speed ahead to let these un qualify commies in. Joe Biden speech was an insult to every American with a brain. His letting in illegals in. His hate for Trump supporters. His disdain for America’s morals. Dumbing down your children more. Blm and antifa can keep rioting. Uses our military against the American people who disagree with China joe. America is dead. You can thank the traitorous Republicans who help rigged the election. Joe Biden deserve jail not being president. Obama and john Kerry need arrested now for treason. A lot more democrats need arrested too. You fools you lost your freedoms your too stupid to understand that.

  12. McConnell needs to go first, step down or resign. Go as easy on them as Trumps appointees got. This better not be a breeze as America is watching and NOT going away.

  13. Why do we need retreads from the Obama era? I want to keep America Great & energy independent! I want to keep America first!

  14. THERE IS A LOT THAT NEEDS TO BE SAID ABOUT OBAMA”S THIRD TERM> I KNOW RHAT AN EMPTY SHELL HAS
    A SEAT IN THE OVAL OFFICE BUT YOU WILL NOT FIND HIM IN THE PRESIDENTS CHAIR. WHY NOT BECAUSE ITS
    A LOT OF THE OBAMA”S OLD CRONIES> YOU ROLLED OVER AND PLAYED DEAD RATHER THAN FREEZE EVERY
    THING UNTIL WE PROVE WHAT 300 MILLION PEOPLE KNOW THAT TRUMP WON THE PRESIDENCY AND INSTEAD
    OF ACTION OUTLINED IN THE CONSTITUTION RINO”S QUIT REPUBLICANS WHINNED> PATRIOTS CRYED IN THEIR BEER> I WOULD LIKE TO SPEND ONE MINUTE ON NANCY PELOSI. 60 SECONDS IS REALLY A WASTE KILL BABIES CATHOLIC WHERE ARE YOU POPE> GOOD AMERICANS ARE LETTING AMERICA DOWN BECAUSE WE DON”T CODONE THE MURDER OF A BEAUTIFUL GIFT OF A CHILD .BIDEN & PELOSI (CATHOLIC) LIKE HELL VATICAN

  15. Watch the power struggle and the falling down.This should provide some great laughs .Remember God is laughing at them

  16. The way alot of the so called republicans turned on Trump wouldn’t surprise me if these commie bastards get approved without much of a fight remember Graham saying the idiot deserves his cabinet

  17. Dems, Repubs. all are establishment politicians, and there in is the real problem. You see people think that Trump was elected to drain the swamp. That is not true, as he can not do that. What he was elected to do was expose the people in the swamp, which he did quite well. Now they are out in the open it is up to we the people to clean up the swamp. I mean all of the parties ( Dems, Repubs, Indys ).

    1. You are so right but I feel we will never see an honest election again because they don’t want THE PEOPLE to decide who represents them, they will decide.

  18. Does anyone remember uranium one? Hillary, Obama and Biden selling off uranium to foreign countries. These people are criminals and should be exiled. Not running this country.

  19. Bend over here it comes. Nothing but traitors and treasonious Congress members . We are about to be taken over by the CCP. Hunter got his first .

  20. The main part of the Supreme Court’s job is OVERSIGHT, and if someone or some state is violating the constitution, then the court should step in, whether or not there is a complaint or brief filed in a lower court or the high court directly. If the court is not doing this, then the court is not doing the due diligence it is suppose to do, to protect the constitution. And if the court is not going to do its job, then it is up to we the people to do the job, and if we have to do the job then we just as well fire the court, we are the only ones that can. It makes no difference if a judge is conservative or liberal if the judge does not follow the constitution. The constitution was not put there to protect the administration, the legislature, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government period, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow. When the government does not want to follow, then we the people have the right and the power to change or remove the government. I think that the court gets so tongue tied with the literal meaning of the law that it forgets what the most important part of its job is. OVERSIGHT.

    Since officials in a number of states have taken it upon themselves to make laws with out the legislative bodies in those states, that the constitution gives the legislative bodies the power to do. They are ignoring the constitution, and need to be reigned in. It is past time for the SCROTUS to do its due diligence, and step in, if the SCROTUS does not wish to do so, then we the people will have to do the job of the court, and we will not need the court.
    Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings, queens, tyrants, and dictators rule. and that is why our forefathers wrote the constitution, to keep the corrupt from getting in power in government. That is why we have come to the point of needing to set term limits and to remove immunity that protects those that would try to abuse their position by creating greater transparency in the government.

    Just like they did with the Hunter Biden scandal, the fake news and the media, are covering up what states are doing to hide the evidence. It is not only in the so-called battle ground states. The governors and judges, and election officials in these states, are violating the law and the constitution of the United States, by making laws illegally, and suppressing the evidence, by refusing to allow ballots, and machines to be investigated. As much as I hate to say this the Supreme Court is condoning this behavior, by not enforcing the constitution. This is their job, to protect the constitution by enforcing it. The Supreme Courts job of oversight does not end because a case is not filed in a lower court. There is nothing in the constitution that says the Supreme Court it’s self cannot call on the DOJ or Superior Court to take action on such matters, and for it not to do so is negligence.
    As I have said before and will repeat.

    WE DON’T NEED MORE GOVERNMENT, WE NEED TO CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT WE HAVE.

    U.S. Code Section 242 of Title 18, Deprivation of rights under color of law, makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
    For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties.

    Some states have gotten the idea that they can just change laws because they want to. However that is not the case, when a state becomes a state they sign on to the constitution and the bill of rights, and all of the laws contained with in the constitution. These are the over riding laws of the land, and apply to all states, and can not be just dismissed out of hand by any state governor, state legislature, or any state official, or local officials. It does not work that way. The constitution and the bill of rights can not be changed by any government body be it federal state or local. Changes to the constitution and the bill of rights can only be made by we the people. Not with E.O. or legislation by any governing body, or any whim of someone on the supreme court. This is to keep government from usurping the power of the people.

    The supreme Court is “appointed” to oversee the implementation of the constitution, and the protection of the constitution, by enforcing the constitution.
    Lately it would seem that the Supreme Court is neglecting its role of oversight, and enforcement. Which means it is not protecting the constitution.

    The Supreme Court is being negligent in its duty of oversight, of a number of states that have violated the constitution, by letting officials make laws illegally, instead of the legislatures in those states. This falls squarely in the scope of the Supreme Court. Whether or not any complaint has been filed in any other court or the Supreme Court Directly. This is the job of the Supreme Court in its roll of oversight, in the protection of the constitution. I am sorely disappointed by the Supreme Courts actions or lack there of, to do what is necessary to protect the constitution and thereby the country and the people. Trump thought he appointed three conservatives to the Supreme Court, I think he guessed wrong

  21. These democrats are all FOOLS. There day of reckoning, is not far OFF. Judgement DAY Won’t be RIGGED!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Biden said that he could not trust the military so he had them screened by the FBI, what I would like to know is who screened the FBI. HA HA HBaheheHEhaaaaa

  23. Love all comments. We are in a place where we had best get our heads together and oust these infidels. This is a tragic time! The
    swearing in was a waste!I’m more afraid of all the foreigners invading
    OUR COUNTRY, bringing in more disease etc. There is no room at the inn so go back to whence you came.Praying is good!

  24. No he was not one of the best Presidents!!! He was the best that has ever been in my life time and there will not be another as good in the next 100 years, if America last that long.
