Sen. Feinstein says she has no plans to retire early

Richard Blum, husband to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), is interested in becoming an ambassador. Some speculated that might mean retirement for the 87-year-old lawmaker.

Blum is seeking an ambassadorship in Europe and President Joe Biden is reportedly open to the idea, according to the Daily Wire. However, Feinstein has said she will not be retiring from Congress anytime soon despite pressure from her fellow Democrats to do so. 

Feinstein has been at odds with her party lately with many questioning her fitness for office due to her age. However, these problems only seemed to come to a head after her comments regarding U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett during her nomination process.

Barrett was under fire from the left for being a devout Catholic, but they had little else to pin on her. Mostly, they opposed Barrett because she was a conservative and would tip the court with more originalist justices by a margin of 6-3, according to The Hill.

“This has been one of the best Senate hearings I have participated in,” Feinstein said at the time of the poised, prepared then-nominee. “Thank you for your fairness and opportunity of going back and forth. It leaves one with a lot of hopes.”.

Many in Feinstein’s party believed she wasn’t serious enough about how high the stakes were for the left on the courts. Another problem they had was that Feinstein wanted to preserve the 60-vote majority in the Senate, again at odds with some in her party who thought eliminating the legislative filibuster would let them ram through their radical agenda.

Feinstein ultimately stepped down from the Senate Judiciary Committee in November while not relinquishing her seat, the New York Times reported. Still, California Gov. Gavin Newsom told the media Wednesday about his possible replacements for her even though the only way his input would matter is if she left before her term was finished.

The left seems done with Feinstein and ready to move on. It’s possible she simply isn’t radical enough for the party and too friendly to the right. What’s unlikely is that it has anything to do with her age considering their party’s president is the oldest ever elected.

      1. Michael, God needs to term-limit Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, and a few more corrupt ones over there with a stroke, heart attack, etc. Say your prayers daily.

    1. Right on! I’m beginning to realize how corrupt our entire government has become from the President on down. They are all bought and sold to there money supporters and the globalists out to destroy this country

  1. This is what is wrong with Congress today. She, like they say about a leopard, doesn’t change their spots, & she never changes her ideas which have been embedded in her mind for decades. Like many in Congress & like Biden,
    is in the early or middle stage of dementia ( a memory disorder, personality change & impaired reasoning ) can only repeat what is told to her recently.
    Term limits are the only thing that will get these dinosaurs out of government & get people with fresh ideas in.

    1. Doug, I wouldn’t give her either one of those items, she isn’t worth what gold is worth now-a-days. I’d give her a 1 carat diamond watch with a very thin cowhide leather strap.

  2. Old ladies over 80 years old like Diane Feinstein should be banned from politics. She wants to ban our 2nd amendment. It’s time for her to go, her judgement is impaired due to her onset of dementia.

  3. It kind of funny in away how the california senator and congress men can sleep with the spys from china and nothing done to them (Feinstein and stalwell) bothe Democrats and if a republicans states and opions or fart crossway they want them exspelled

    1. Katydid,
      Perhaps is usually put your thoughts in a gentler wording you might get through. I have had that same problem responding to the liberal side of an argument.

    1. The Democrats were in China getting their vaccines made with baby parts right before they unleashed it on the rest of us. Be careful with that vaccine. It will either kill you now or turn you into a babling boom.

  4. Should not be allowed at old age. 75 yrs out the door. For judges and congress. all of them. They made so much money. (Tax payers money) Term limits…….. for all of them most of them are loseing their minds .like you know who,,,Joe

  5. Well, if she won’t go on her own there is an alternative – VOTE HER OUT! LOL*

    Too often we seem stuck and sit back and do nothing (unless you’re a democrat and then you defund the police, riot, loot, attack, destroy and burn your own cities!), but it’s time for Americans to wake up and take back our vote. We DO have the ability to secure our elections, eliminate ways of committing fraud, and even have a non-biased (such as the National Guard) to monitor votes. Stay with the vote to the transport site through transportation and stick with those votes until counted and then secure them with the same guards. Just my opinion.

  6. Air Force One takes a wrong turn.
    They were over Beijing when the engines quit, Biden ask the pilot what was wrong the pilot said we are out of gas. So Joe being the man of action that he is, he bailed out, he could be heard saying WHOOOA! I forgot my chuuuuuuute………….splat. Harris who happened to be on the same flight jumped too, but she got her chute on, when she tried to open it she kept pulling the wrong chord. She was pulling the chord for her kotex, needless to say that turned out to be a bloody mess. The pilot remembered to switch to the reserve tanks, and flew off into the sunset. This pilot will be remembered as a national hero.

  7. There should be termm limits for the Senate and House. Trouble is no one wants to vote there Senator or Congressman out of office. It has to be done. Do not vote for any incumbent. They go in paupers and in no time they become millionaires. Something stinks

    1. You are right on target Neville- once the hook from “K” Street (the lobbyists) is set it is almost impossible to get themout of congress. They go there and within a few years are millionaires. Look at that wingnut AOC she couldn’t afford an apartment in DC…..now look at her. TYPICAL WASHINGTON DC…..IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN CORRUPT BUT THE LAST 30 YEARS HAS BEEN THE WORSE. Look at the OBuma’s couldn’t afford a house in Chicago and now are worth millions millions. It all started with Billy Bob Bill Clinton…..but then again George H.W. Bush was a pretty left wing President also. Although he was a Republican. Clinton 8 Years, Bush 43 8 years, OBama 8 years, right there is 24 years of the SWAMP…..YES Bush 43 was a SWAMPSTER also, don’t let him kid you.

  8. the body is still there but the mind, ethics and moral authority left years ago. unfortunately they should have left decades ago demorat!

  9. the whole bunch of them starting with Polisi should all be put out to pasture and it should have been done on the day they were born

  10. It is so hard for these crooks to give up that Chinese money. Communist controlled democrats just can’t get off the taxpayer tit.

  11. Retired early. Honey you worked your life away. Oh wait your a democratic y’all don’t have a life other then ruin everyone else’s.

  12. Once these people are elected, it’s like hitting the lottery for them. They have their own kingdom which now has a fence with razor wire and troops for protection, along with armed security details. Most have never had a real job in their life, but tell you how hard they work to look out after your interests. It’s no wonder Democrats are putting together schemes to stay in power. How are we going to get term limits when they make the laws?

  13. Hmm, not “left” enough?
    Hmm, not “agreeing” with your party?
    Hmm, not ready to “retire”

    Which would be worse: she finishes her term or she retires (?) and Newsom appoints one of his pre-selected (waiting in the wings) extreme-liberals; woman “of color” (pressure to make that move since Kamala vacated)
    It’s never about “who is the best choice” but rather “what color/race/special-interest” person have I not moved up in the ranks 🙁

  14. I cannot believe I’m going to say this. Here is ONE time I agree with DIANNE. Whew I said it. PLAN and simple she may be 87, but she is surely a LOT SHARPER than the 78 in the WHITE HOUSE. If I had to pick having an INTELLIGENT conversation with Dianne, or JOE. Dianne wins hands down. She may be 87 but she is surely SHARPER than 78. I have two very good FRIENDS one 93 and one 92 that are still SHARP AS A TACK. JOE, MUST GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Dianne Feinstein retired over a decade ago. The fools in California just keep electing her. Her only function has been to keep China informed of Senate intelligence (oxymoron) briefings through her chauffeur.
