In case you haven’t heard, if Joe Biden manages to emerge victorious in the 2020 race for the White House after all legal options and recounts have been exhausted on President Donald Trump’s side, the former VP is already scouting a number of ultra-progressive potential picks for his Cabinet.
One of those radical appointments could very well be Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who Biden is reportedly eyeing up for an appointment as the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. Reasoning behind that potential selection rests on Warren’s background, which includes her Harvard University professorship and her strong background in financial regulation.
Before you lose your lunch, hear me out.
Warren’s appointment to such a high post would have consequences, sure. I get it. But there’s one key aspect that we also need to keep in mind — and that’s the makeup of the U.S. Senate if Warren is, in fact, tapped for Biden’s cabinet.
As it stands, Democrats and Republicans are likely to have a 50-50 split of power in the Senate, pending a pair of ultra-critical Senate runoff elections in Georgia that won’t happen until January 2021. Even if both Republican candidates win those runoff races and provide Republicans a 52-48 majority in the Senate, it’s a little too close for comfort — especially with RINOs like Sens. Mitt Romney and Susan Collins in office.
But if Biden chooses Warren for his cabinet, it means that Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker will be able to select her Senate replacement.
Barker is a Republican. See what I’m saying now?
Given that he would likely choose a Republican to replace Warren, that would then give Republicans another extremely valuable Senate seat, which might be utterly crucial as House Democrats and a Biden/Harris radical progressive regime try to push through their garbage liberal pieces of America-killing legislation.
Or, at the very least, in theory it could provide a little extra insurance just in case one or two of the Georgia Republicans end up not winning their January 5 runoff election.
Make no mistake — I’m not the only person thinking through these scenarios in my tiny brain. As Newsmax reported, there are already a lot of rumblings about the pros and cons of choosing Warren — from both sides of the political aisle.
“I had a colleague of mine say there’s no way Elizabeth Warren or Susan Rice could ever get confirmed,” a GOP senator reportedly told Newsmax.
Warren’s ascension could also be blocked on a Senate Republican level, who might feel that the trade-off of possibly gaining another GOP senator is still not a big enough reward as compared to blocking Warren’s appointment to Biden’s Cabinet, given the nightmare she would pose for the American economy.
Of course, only time will tell how this all shakes out. By the time we report on this developing situation next, there’s literally no telling what will have taken place. With any hope, we won’t even have to worry about such scenarios if Trump ends up victorious in his fight to hold the Oval Office.
