Biden Brings Communist Into His Administration

She was given the Lenin Award.

It’s easy to find Democrat socialists in the Biden administration. You can’t throw a dead cat around the Whure House without hitting one. But an out and out communist who seems to glory in the label? That’s a tad harder. Until you meet Saule Omarova, that is. With a 60s Bond girl Soviet name, she is slated for comptroller. That means the control of currency. Oh joy. Rebecca Koffler, a Soviet emigre herself, has her number.

 

Koffler: President Joe Biden’s choice for comptroller of the currency, Saule Omarova, wants to transform America’s free market economy into a Soviet-style system – the same kind of central planning that destroyed her native country, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

As an immigrant from the former Soviet Union and communism survivor, I know firsthand the damage central planning can do to an economy and to lives. United States senators must reject “Comrade” Omarova’s radical ideology which includes ideas like nationalizing banks, empowering federal government apparatchiks to set pay scales and prices, and enabling academics to oversee investments so they can finance social experiments. It all will doom America to the same destiny as the country I fled 30 years ago.

Omarova, a winner in her home country of the “Lenin” award, praised her native Soviet socialist system because of the lack of gender pay gap. She derided the free market economy for producing a Wall Street “a–hole culture” and expressed contempt for our “dysfunctional” financial system.

As someone who grew up standing in line for hours to shop in an over-crowded grocery store or a bare-shelved department store, let me tell you about Omarova’s “wondrous” socialist system. By the time you reached the counter to pay, all that was left to buy was rancid milk, or at the department store, wrong-size boots. You bought them anyway – the first to make a sour-tasting tvorog (cottage cheese), and the second to wear with several pairs of socks.

The socialist economy didn’t produce enough of anything and everything that was manufactured domestically was barely usable. Why? There was no incentive for anyone to work hard or innovate, because everyone was paid the same regardless of effort. Government bureaucrats, like Omarova, made it impossible for people to improve their lot and better themselves by controlling every aspect of their lives.

We had a saying under communism: “They pretend to pay us, and we pretend to work.” There can’t be a gender pay gap when there’s no pay. Whether a garbage collector or a doctor, the salary was never enough to support a family, spurring people to seek seedy alternatives like corruption and black market dealings. Meanwhile, the Communist Party ruling elites were the Soviet version of Omarova’s Wall Street “a–holes,” except they didn’t produce any wealth.
