Biden wants to appoint communist Saule Omarova to take over banking. She has written extensively about Marxism and how the government needs to take over banking. If this doesn't scare anyone, you're not paying attention. Remember when everyone laughed when Republicans said that Marxists will become involved in government in the Biden administration trying to transform our nation into a communist one? They weren't lying.

Here's a tweet from her:

"Until I came to the US, I couldn't imagine that things like gender pay gap still existed in today's world. Say what you will about old USSR, there was no gender pay gap there. Market doesn't always "know best.""


Here's some videos questioning her writings:




Here's a great video from Tim Scott. He's a no nonsense guy that just says what he means:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRz5M4xTtfs

We are very concerned that a communist is being nominated to completely change the banking industry. This is very bad. However, what did she say about why she's being attacked? The standard Democrat narrative:

“I am an easy target," she said. "An immigrant, a woman, a minority. I don’t look like your typical comptroller of the currency. I have a different history. I am easy to demonize and vilify.”

No, this is not why people are disturbed and don't want you to take over the banks. She's been trained in the Democrat rhetoric very well. To deflect criticism, call them racist and sexist.

Why is this story not getting more attention? Because a lot of the people want Marxism to be ushered in. They are starting to get more and more blatant with this stuff.

Wondering if G55 has ever read any of her writings. I'd bet not. He's happier having propaganda spoon-fed to him.

I see you didn't watch the videos I posted. They confront her over her writings. I was reading what people on th eleft were saying about this and they weren't even mentioning her writings. They just had the standard "The communist boogeyman! LOL!" No critical thought whatsoever. Just bumper sticker politics from the that side of the spectrum.
Republicans had the facts and are grilling her. But of course, communists have to downplay communism taking over. If they were upfront about it, it would be too hard to infiltrate.

Just please use your logic here. Democrats have been wanting a Marxist agenda for a while now. Republicans said that the people behind Biden who want communism will be perfect to take over clueless Joe. Now all of a sudden Biden nominates a known communist to lead banking. If this isn't deliberate, then it's just one big coincidence that Biden is falling right into what the Republicans said was gonna happen. Weird, right?

So: No, YOU have not read any of her writings yourself.

Whether or not you agree with Biden, only an idiot would think that Joe Biden is 'clueless.' In fact, he's an extremely savvy political operator.

I did read her writings. They sympathize with communism. Look at her tweet I posted about how the USSR didn't have a gender pay gap. YEAH, BECAUSE EVERYONE IS EQUALLY POOR OVER THERE!! She grew up under communism and she's using propaganda to appeal to the feminists. She knows everyone was equally poor over there. She's not dumb. She refused to hand over her Marxist theisis paper. What's she hiding in there? I can bet a million dollars that paper was not criticizing Marxism.

Extremely savvy? He botched the Afghanistan withdrawal and left Americans stranded over there and didn't care. Inflation crisis that he doesn't care about. He's letting everyone come across the border and flying illegals into red states like Florida at 3AM, which DeSantis was complaining about. His approval rating is in the dirt. Democrats are also pushing for illegal immigrants to vote in elections. More people have died from COVID under Biden than Trump, despite Trump leaving him 3 vaccines.

How can anyone with a straight face say that Joe Biden is a savvy politician? He doesn't even know where he is half the time.

Should we restart the "duck and cover" drills now? How about a House Un-American Activities Committee?

Oh wait...I've got an idea! Let's add two words to the pledge of allegiance so we can differentiate ourselves from the godless commies!

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to watch a documentary called "Red Dawn." I hear it is very scary.

Nope, not everyone was equally poor in the Soviet Union.

Nope, he didn't 'botch' the Afghanistan withdrawal and leave Americans stranded over there and didn't care. Inflation crisis? Nope. Letting 'everyone' across the borders and flying illegals into red states? DeSantis complaining about Biden is a mark in Joe's favor. No one is pushing for illegal immigrants to get to vote.

Trump didn't 'leave Biden 3 vaccines.' Trump and his ilk have done absolutely everything possible to sow as much distrust of 'Trump's vaccines' (since you want to credit him with something he was too stupid to take himself until after he got sick) and to keep the pandemic going as much as possible in order to try to engineer a return of the Great Orange Blob--which Trump only cares about for the grift and to make it harder to prosecute him for his many many many crimes.

You should try actual news sources instead of whatever propaganda fog horns you listen to.

She wants to nationalize the banks and let the FED take over everything. Non-stop big government controlling our lives. Democrats still didn't learn that the government handling student loans worked out so well for everyone, didn't it? More government is not the answer. It never is. This is very disturbing and the fact that you guys just make jokes about it tells me you are OK with communism. Kim Jong Un loves Marxism. Why not move to North Korea or Cuba? Why does everyone want to stay in the "evil capitalist U.S." while touting Marxism? I don't see droves of people leaving the U.S. and banging on the door to Cuba and North Korea for freedom, which should be their perfect paradises.

"The State Department believes as many as 14,000 U.S. legal permanent residents remain in Afghanistan, Foreign Policy has learned, as the agency faces increasing scrutiny from Congress about the status of U.S. citizens and green card holders that are still stranded in the Taliban-controlled country."


"Two Vermont cities have joined the short but growing list of jurisdictions that allow residents who are not U.S. citizens to vote in local elections."
"Last week, the Vermont legislature overrode vetoes by Republican Gov. Phil Scott, greenlighting voter-approved changes to the city charters of Montpelier and Winooski. Those cities now allow all residents over age 18 to vote in city elections, regardless of citizenship status. Noncitizen voting in federal elections remains illegal nationwide."

New York is pushing for this, too.

Where do you guys get your news from? We live in an age of unlimited information on the internet and it seems you guys can't do a simple search for news that is not a Democrat echo chamber.

Why wasn't she a commie when she worked under Bush?

Because her job at that time wasn't taking over the banking industry and trying to transform the country into communism. She's always been a communist. But, I don't know why you guys make so many jokes about. Communism has a worldwide death toll that is unfathomable. Whenever it is brought up it gets dismissed as the no true scotsman defense of, "Well they weren't real communists. We can do it right!" I love how all those countries who read Marx and tout him as an influence are always accused of "not real communism." Castro praised Marx and said Cuba is communist and some leftists say Castro wasn't a Marxist. Crazy how a perfect communist uptopian country like cuba still has crap cars from the 50's on their streets. Funny, isn't it?

Would you guys think it's OK if I said, "Well Nazi Germany wasn't really fascist?" of course not. It would sound demented.

Seriously?? We've been telling Americans to leave Afghanistan for at least 12 months before the withdraw. Hello. Ever hear of a jet? If someone is so stupid that they honestly didn't get the word in time, we should revoke their US citizenship.

I joke about it because it's hilarious. It's like you went into a bomb shelter in 1955, just walked out, and are still worried about "the reds" hiding under the bed. Or that general in Dr. Strangelove who went on about "precious bodily fluids."

Your "Red Scare" stuff is laughably out of date, so I'm laughing. Suggesting Biden is a "commie" is beyond absurd. Biden, like Obama before him and Clinton before that is a solid corporate Democrat, and that party only recently regained a progressive wing with a modicum of influence...something which has been missing since the Cold War ended.

You DO know it ended, right?

If Biden ran for office in most European countries, he'd be considered center-right, and any notion that he's a devotee of Marx would be laughed at in multiple languages.

You ask where we get our news from, but I'd counter by asking you from WHEN do you get your news?

Every qualified voter of the town shall be entitled to vote at any or all town elections."[19]

Takoma Park​

The Takoma Park city website states, "City residents who are not citizens of the United States can register to vote in Takoma Park elections by completing the Takoma Park Voter Registration Application."[20]
All of these happened while Trump was president. Why aren't you blaming him?

Wondering if G55 has ever read any of her writings. I'd bet not. He's happier having propaganda spoon-fed to him.

I see you didn't watch the videos I posted. They confront her over her writings. I was reading what people on th eleft were saying about this and they weren't even mentioning her writings. They just had the standard "The communist boogeyman! LOL!" No critical thought whatsoever. Just bumper sticker politics from the that side of the spectrum.
Republicans had the facts and are grilling her. But of course, communists have to downplay communism taking over. If they were upfront about it, it would be too hard to infiltrate.

Just please use your logic here. Democrats have been wanting a Marxist agenda for a while now. Republicans said that the people behind Biden who want communism will be perfect to take over clueless Joe. Now all of a sudden Biden nominates a known communist to lead banking. If this isn't deliberate, then it's just one big coincidence that Biden is falling right into what the Republicans said was gonna happen. Weird, right?

Nope, not everyone was equally poor in the Soviet Union.

Nope, he didn't 'botch' the Afghanistan withdrawal and leave Americans stranded over there and didn't care. Inflation crisis? Nope. Letting 'everyone' across the borders and flying illegals into red states? DeSantis complaining about Biden is a mark in Joe's favor. No one is pushing for illegal immigrants to get to vote.

Trump didn't 'leave Biden 3 vaccines.' Trump and his ilk have done absolutely everything possible to sow as much distrust of 'Trump's vaccines' (since you want to credit him with something he was too stupid to take himself until after he got sick) and to keep the pandemic going as much as possible in order to try to engineer a return of the Great Orange Blob--which Trump only cares about for the grift and to make it harder to prosecute him for his many many many crimes.

You should try actual news sources instead of whatever propaganda fog horns you listen to.
"The State Department believes as many as 14,000 U.S. legal permanent residents remain in Afghanistan, Foreign Policy has learned, as the agency faces increasing scrutiny from Congress about the status of U.S. citizens and green card holders that are still stranded in the Taliban-controlled country."


"Two Vermont cities have joined the short but growing list of jurisdictions that allow residents who are not U.S. citizens to vote in local elections."
"Last week, the Vermont legislature overrode vetoes by Republican Gov. Phil Scott, greenlighting voter-approved changes to the city charters of Montpelier and Winooski. Those cities now allow all residents over age 18 to vote in city elections, regardless of citizenship status. Noncitizen voting in federal elections remains illegal nationwide."

New York is pushing for this, too.

Where do you guys get your news from? We live in an age of unlimited information on the internet and it seems you guys can't do a simple search for news that is not a Democrat echo chamber.
Seriously?? We've been telling Americans to leave Afghanistan for at least 12 months before the withdraw. Hello. Ever hear of a jet? If someone is so stupid that they honestly didn't get the word in time, we should revoke their US citizenship.
Most of those are surely people with dual citizenships who wanted to remain with their families or NGO volunteers who wanted to stay to continue their work.

Ah, so it's their fault they are stuck there and poop for them? How heartless. :( Did you know a lot of those people stayed because they ddin't want to abandon their citizens that they grow fond of and developed a bond with? A lot of them are heroes and they are being spit on by Joe Biden and the Dems. Shame on you. There are still people there who want to leave and they can't. Biden is doing nothing about it. He gave the country to the Taliban. He never even apologized to the Afghan people.

Wondering if G55 has ever read any of her writings. I'd bet not. He's happier having propaganda spoon-fed to him.

I see you didn't watch the videos I posted. They confront her over her writings. I was reading what people on th eleft were saying about this and they weren't even mentioning her writings. They just had the standard "The communist boogeyman! LOL!" No critical thought whatsoever. Just bumper sticker politics from the that side of the spectrum.
Republicans had the facts and are grilling her. But of course, communists have to downplay communism taking over. If they were upfront about it, it would be too hard to infiltrate.

Just please use your logic here. Democrats have been wanting a Marxist agenda for a while now. Republicans said that the people behind Biden who want communism will be perfect to take over clueless Joe. Now all of a sudden Biden nominates a known communist to lead banking. If this isn't deliberate, then it's just one big coincidence that Biden is falling right into what the Republicans said was gonna happen. Weird, right?
So: No, YOU have not read any of her writings yourself.

Whether or not you agree with Biden, only an idiot would think that Joe Biden is 'clueless.' In fact, he's an extremely savvy political operator.
I did read her writings. They sympathize with communism. Look at her tweet I posted about how the USSR didn't have a gender pay gap. YEAH, BECAUSE EVERYONE IS EQUALLY POOR OVER THERE!! She grew up under communism and she's using propaganda to appeal to the feminists. She knows everyone was equally poor over there. She's not dumb.

Extremely savvy? He botched the Afghanistan withdrawal and left Americans stranded over there and didn't care. Inflation crisis that he doesn't care about. He's letting everyone come across the border and flying illegals into red states like Florida at 3AM, which DeSantis was complaining about. His approval rating is in the dirt. Democrats are also pushing for illegal immigrants to vote in elections. More people have died from COVID under Biden than Trump, despite Trump leaving him 3 vaccines.

Yea, that's a good point. Some are probably missionaries also. But how long should we occupy a foreign country just to babysit dual citizens and NGOs and missionaries? They are all volunteers and had plenty of time to leave (more than 12 months).

The following Maryland municipalities allowed noncitizens to vote in local elections as of March 2020.

Barnesville​

The Barnesville town charter defines qualified voters as "having resided therein for six months previous to any town election and being eighteen years of age."[10]

The Garrett Park town charter reads, "The town manager shall provide for the registration of voters in a flexible and available manner in order to encourage registration and voting, consistent with the policies adopted by ordinance and the rules and procedures specified by the election judges. Qualified persons may register by universal registration with either Montgomery County or the town, or may register only with the town, including residents who are not citizens of the United States, up to and including election day."[13]

Glen Echo​

Glen Echo's town charter says the following: "Any person who is not a United States citizen, and (a) is a resident of the Town of Glen Echo, (b) is a lawful resident of the United States, and (c) except for the United States citizenship requirement, meets the voter qualifications provided in Section 501(a) may register to vote in Town elections."[14]

Mount Rainier​

Mount Rainier's city charter states that any person who has been a city resident for 30 days or more at the time of a local election, is at least 18 years old, has not been convicted of a felony offense or of buying and selling votes, and is not under mental guardianship may register to vote.[17]

Riverdale Park​

Riverdale Park's town charter states, "(a) Every resident of the town who (1) has the Town of Riverdale Park as his or her primary residence, (2) is at least sixteen (16) years of age, (3) has resided within the corporate limits of the town for at least forty-five (45) days immediately preceding any nonrunoff town election, (4) does not claim the right to vote elsewhere in the United States, (5) has not been found by a court to be unable to communicate a desire to vote, and (6) is registered to vote in accordance with the provisions of § 503 of this charter shall be a qualified voter of the Town."[18]

Every qualified voter of the town shall be entitled to vote at any or all town elections."[19]

Takoma Park​

The Takoma Park city website states, "City residents who are not citizens of the United States can register to vote in Takoma Park elections by completing the Takoma Park Voter Registration Application."[20]
All of these happened while Trump was president. Why aren't you blaming him?


We were complaining about it. Non-citizens of the U.S. get better treatment than actual citizens of the U.S. It's getting out of control. Did you know in some states if you get into a car accident with an illegal immigrant who has no license and no insurance, they usually get no punishment? Americans must have license and insurance, but immigrants don't need it. Same with COVID. Americans need the COVID vaccine! But, immigrants who cross the border and get flown to random towns by Biden don't need the vaccine. Weird, right? Did you hear when Jen Psaki said that immigrants don't need the vaccine because they aren't staying very long? This makes no sense.. By this same logic, why do we need a vaccine in order to eat inside? Nobody is staying long at that restaurant. Tucker Carlson pointed out this blatant hypocrisy. It's really getting out of control.

WASHINGTON — A commercial flight carrying 21 Americans and 48 lawful permanent U.S. residents departed Kabul, Afghanistan, over the weekend, the State Department confirmed Monday.

In total, at least 85 American citizens and 79 lawful permanent residents have left Afghanistan since the U.S. ended a massive humanitarian evacuation and completed the withdrawal of its troops in August, according to State Department figures.

“We are thankful to Qatari authorities, who continue to coordinate these flights with the Taliban,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said Monday. The Biden administration is still working to help American citizens, lawful permanent residents and vulnerable Afghans leave, Price added.
So US citizens are still leaving unimpeded. What makes you think "There are still people there who want to leave and they can't."?

Well, they had over 12 months! How long should we have stayed for them? Trump announced that we were withdrawing in August of 2020! Then it was delayed. Biden said all along that he was pulling out. Biden doesn't mess around. Then they had another 6 or 7 months after Biden was installed in office. I feel bad for the Afghan people. Next time don't align with a terrorist group that wants to attack the US.

"They're not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time. I don't think it's the same thing. It's not the same thing....We are expelling individuals based on Title 42 specifically because of COVID, because we want to prevent a scenario where large numbers of people are gathering posing threats to the community and to the migrants themselves."

So illegals coming in droves don't need the vaccine because they aren't staying long but Americans do? How long do you stay at a restaurant? Certainly less time than an illegal will be in the U.S., that's for sure. Why do you think people are getting fed up with this nonsense? I do agree that people should get the vaccine but if you don't want to get it, that's your choice. The people who choose not to get it are taking a risk that they don't really care if they get COVID. So if they don't care, why should I care? If they want to risk infection, then they can. It's their choice. If you have a whole group of unvaccinated and they are all OK with taking a risk and giving COVID to each other, than that's their choice. It doesn't affect me. I'm vaccinated.

And the car accident happened to me. An ilegal immigrant hit my car from behind at a traffic light. Cop showed up. He didn't have a license or insurance and didn't speak English so the cop told him to go. Cop made me wait and file a report and talk to my insurance company. Cop didn't even write down the immigrants license plate.

Yeah, he kept saying we are pulling out even after it was known that the Taliban was taking over the country at an alarming rate. All he had to say was, "Not yet." Taliban would've stopped. Very simple. Biden just threw his arms up and said, "Oh well. Let them have the country." Pretty sick.

Your "citations" really remind me of Half-Life's.
One cop made one decision in one anecdote. This does not actually justify or support your claim about what 'usually' happens (ie, more than once) in unnamed states (ie more than one).
A better conclusion might be that cops only enforce the law when they feel like it, if it won't be difficult or burdensome.
Oh, and how do you know he was an illegal immigrant, if he didn't speak English? Plenty of Americans cannot afford insurance, and/or drive without a license. It's not commendable, but certainly not restricted to illegal immigrants.

So, people wanted to stay, did stay despite 12 months of warnings and..this is Biden spitting in them? What? We were supposed to continue an undeclared war with no real purpose to accommodate Americans who don’t want to live here? I do not know a single US military person who has served in Afghanistan who believes we should have ever been there.

The Taliban were going to take back the country, period. We could have waited another 20 years and it would have been the same outcome. BTW, what was Trump’s big plan re: Afghanistan? Isn’t Trump the one who set the withdrawal timetable?

Well this thread has certainly drifted off course. I thought we were scare-mongering about "commies?" Anyway, the Taliban were already in control of large areas of the country, were already embedded in the cities waiting for the US to pull out when Trump said he would, and more importantly they have been planning for this eventuality for the last two decades. The Taliban NEVER stopped. They were just patient. They would have taken over just as quickly had Trump been in charge, because nothing changed between administrations except the date of the withdrawal.

As for "let them have the country," when did it become ours to have instead? Apparently you think Afghanistan is some sort of US colony, and that the US - not the Afghan people - should be the ones calling the shots. If the Afghan people want someone other than the Taliban running things, then it is up to them to do something about it. We spent over 20 years, trillions of dollars, and sacrificed thousands of lives in order to force Afghanistan to heel.

Thinking that another year or another President would have changed the outcome is about as nutty as believing Joe Biden is a communist.

Yeah, the Afghan Army 'let them' have the country. All our planning expected SOME resistance. Oops.
And if Biden had set the date back at all, the concpservatives would cry about him reneging on an sagreement, AND extending the war no one wanted to fight any more.

I am not going to watch video's of conservative politicians (like Tim Scott) bloviate.

Unless Gen55 has a link to Ms. Omarova's actual proposals (not imagined), the OP is just another example of idiotic kneejerk opposition to a nomination.

Go back and listen to your Tim Scott video. What is missing? In all his quotes of her "positions", he never says, "And this is what's wrong with that...".
Go back and listen to the Pat Toomey video. Start at 4:00, she clearly explains the purpose is to "expand the boundaries of academic debate".

There is a middle ground between saying that Afghanistan is our country and saying that they should just deal with the Taliban. Helping them oust a terrorist government but leaving a democracy in place would be an option.I'm sure North Korea loved it if we invaded there and got rid of Kim Jong and gave them a democracy. Then we leave. I'm not saying we wold stay in North Korea for 20 years. But there is a difference between imperialism and merely helping a country.

This is why a lot of liberal ideaology is all over the place with no consistency. On one hand you guys say that our borders should be open to everyone because you love people, but then on the other hand you say that you don't care about helping people in another country because it's their problem and their country. That sounds very much like you respect and observe borders. This type of flip-flopping makes people see that there is no clear cut beliefs on the liberal side. They just argue what's convenient at the time.

Yeah, that's a dog whistle. She can't come right out and say, "I'm a communist trying to destroy the banking system and bring down America." Suppose someone wrote down, "Hitler had some great ideas on how to deal with Jewish people. We should try to implement those ways here in America." and someone asked them about it and they said, "It's purpose is to stimulate academic debate." You would buy that? Or call the person a Nazi?

I'm sure North Korea loved it if we invaded there and got rid of Kim Jong and gave them a democracy. Then we leave.
You think that's how it works? Still?
I understand there are problems, but in an ideal world, yes, there should be a way to do it.

Besides, North Korea is a perfect communist utopia anyway. That's why American communists are lining up in droves at the North Korean border.

Perhaps someone can explain how the comptroller of the currency can singlehandedly destroy the US banking system.
Well in an ideal world, they would just invade, declare communism, and walk away. There should be a way to do it.

All banking will be done through the FED. They would have the power to set everything. This woud be government control over everything. Keep in mind the less power in the FED is what we need if we want more freedom. If we want less freedom, then by all means, let the FED control everything. FED controlling all the money means you have to ask permission from the government if you want a business loan. No banks to compete anymore. The people would be crushed. Anything the government doesn't like, they won't let you do. Straight to full on Marxism. Government doesn't like that you have too much money in your bank account? Oh well, they can just take some out and give it to someone else who has less money in their account. Who's gonna stop them? OK with you guys?

It astonishes me that everyone can see how incompetent the government is when it comes to the DMV. Everyone makes jokes about how poorly run and inept the DMV is. Yet, they want to give the government more power over way more important things like healthcare, access to our tax dollars, the banking system. It's disgusting. When will people realize that less government means more freedom? More government means less freedom. Bernie Sanders wanted the government to control everything and people worshiped him! This shows you how uneducated the country is. More government is never the answer. Just look at the history.

I love how low the bar is to be a communist nowadays. Basically, all you need to do is disagree with Generation55 and ta da. It was harder when I was a kid to be a communist.

She wrote a thesis paper on Marxism that she refuses to show anyone. Her ideas are full on Marxist and she was called out on it by tons of Republicans. She tweeted that the USSR didn't have a gender pay gap. She's using the standard Democrat victimhood complex to deflect criticism of her communist ideology by saying "it's because I'm a woman and an immigrant!" You think this woman is really so dumb to actually believe criticism of her is because she's a woman and an immigrant? Of course not. But, it's a nice dog whistle to deflect and gain support from the liberals.

You might have been born yesterday, but I was not.

The comptroller of the currency does not have the power to make all banking do anything, let alone go through the Fed. It would tgake Federal legislation, along with yhe cooperation of all 50 states to force state chartered banks etc… to go through the Fed.

So you've read this paper how?

My guess is that if the paper was her trashing Marxist ideology she would be more than willing to show it. The fact that she won't show it tells everyone all they need to know. Her ideas are full on Marxist. You don't even have to see the paper. The paper would just be the icing on the cake.

Here's a quote from another forum I'm reading:

"She should never be allowed to be a government employee let alone this high of a position. Born in Russia, college education on a Lenin Scholarship, hates banks and capitalism, gee what could go wrong?"

I'm sure all that is totally normal and no big deal to you guys. Capitalism is the best economic system we have so far and it was responsible for unprecedented world growth since 1800. Right around that time period there was a huge spike in worldwide productivity. Why? Because the Enlightenment thinkers brought us ideas such as property rights, intellectual property rights, patent rights, free market trade. And now people want to throw that all away and return to the old days of no growth. Can't believe I have to explain this on an atheist forum.

No, seriously. I want you to post an excerpt from this paper you claim exists, and show - with examples - why it is "full on Marxist."

We have this thing here called the "burden of proof." If you make a claim, then you have to back it up with evidence. Saying that someone wrote a paper that they "refuse to show to anyone," holding that up as evidence, and then claiming that the imaginary paper does not even need to be seen is not backing up your assertion.

Wow, I'm thinking of another word that starts with C and end wit T. Not communist though. It's only four letters, the word I'm thinking.

I think Gneration55 is part of an extreme right wing cult. The kind where they just argue inside their heads and win every argument.

Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Senate Banking Committee formally received President Biden’s nomination of Professor Saule Omarova for Comptroller of the Currency. Notably missing from her paperwork, however, is a copy of her thesis, “Karl Marx’s Economic Analysis and the Theory of Revolution in The Capital.
"On October 5, 2021, Senator Toomey sent a letter asking Ms. Omarova to provide the Committee with a copy of the thesis no later than October 13, 2021, to allow the Committee adequate time to translate and thoroughly review it. To this day, Ms. Omarova has neither provided a copy of her thesis to the Committee nor provided any explanation for her failure to do so."
“All nominees within the Committee’s jurisdiction are required to provide their writings, articles, and papers. Unfortunately, Professor Omarova appears to believe she is exempt from these rules,” said Ranking Member Toomey. “In order for lawmakers to fully and fairly consider Professor Omarova’s nomination to serve as our nation’s top banking regulator, we need a complete picture of her policy positions. The fact that she recently deleted references to her thesis begs the question: what is she hiding?”

But i'm sure you guys believe that her paper is trashing Karl Marx and extoling the virtues of capitalism and how we need to protet it all costs if we want to keep moving ahead as a society. It must be terrible being poor in a country where everyone has a smartphone and the poor get obese like the kings of old. You guys do know obesity used to be a sign of wealth because it was a signal you had tons of food available to you, right?

The thesis in question was written in 1989 for her undergraduate degree. It is conceivable she has no copy if it.
I don’t have a copy of any papers I wrote as an undergraduate.

Such high authority!: some anonymous post on an un-named forum you visit! Well, if THEY say so, I guess it must be so! Whoever they is…

I’m flummoxed at the meaning that is attributed to the so offensive tweet. What is so offensive? That she points out that even in the Soviet Union, there is no gender pay gap? That’s a bit like saying that stating that the trains ran on time under Hitler is a ringing endorsement of Hitler. I guess anything other than admit that the fact that there is a persistent gender pay gap that even backwards, discredited communist countries managed to eliminate. Isn’t the actual point of that tweet how offensive and backward gender pay gaps are???

Or would that distract too much from actual…reading comprehension, critical thinking, or just thinking instead of headline grabbing deliberate misinterpretations?
