Senate confirms radical leftist Lisa Cook to Federal Reserve Board

President Joe Biden is intent on finding the most radical people to fill every vacant position in government. His newest addition is no exception.

The Senate has confirmed economist Lisa Cook for a top spot on the Federal Reserve, the Washington Examiner reported. Cook received zero votes from Republicans because she lacks the necessary experience and holds highly partisan views.

The nature of her confirmation is indeed historic since Cook is the first black woman to serve in the position. While Democrats fawn over such superficial credentials, Republicans pointed out that Cook has no experience making monetary policy that is required for her position.

Her previous experience includes serving as a senior economist under former President Barack Obama on the Council of Economic Advisers. Cook is currently an economics professor at Michigan State University and will now sit on the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors after Tuesday’s vote.

Cook is known for holding radical views with “a history of inflammatory partisan rhetoric and extreme left-wing political advocacy,” according to Sen. Pat Toomey. The Pennsylvania Republican, who is the top GOP member on the Banking Committee, also said Cook “appears to have no opinion at all” about how to solve inflation.

“Professor Cook’s answers to basic questions about what the Fed should do to tame inflation amount to nothing more than word salad,” Toomey said at her confirmation hearing. This issue is a hot topic, with inflation the worst it’s been in four decades.

The Federal Reserve must act to combat the problem while employing a delicate touch from knowledgeable policymakers. The central bank has twice raised interest rates in hopes of stemming the tide as consumers see prices increase by 8.5% between March 2021 and March 2022 and will likely do it again.

Biden has a knack for picking the worst people for whatever job he fills. Perhaps he should stop picking radicals — or at least focus less on what the people look like and more on what they are qualified to do.
