The Senate voted to confirm President Biden’s choice for Transportation Secretary 87-13. Biden chose former presidential adversary and former South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg for the position despite the fact he has little relevant to equip him for the role.

These 13 GOP Senators voted against his confirmation:

Surprised how few Republicans were willing to not accept Biden’s anti-American workers agenda by also not having the guts to care and work FOR we taxpayers and the huge job losses taxpayers are going to now go way up.

Especially with a demented president who actually supports the socialist/marxist Dems raising our taxes for the privilege of hurting even more taxpayers than they already plan on doing. Multiple trillions of more spending means more taxation for ALL who pay taxes, not just our producers making more than $400k, the Dems have lied to their own supporters. An UN-American group of citizens whose agenda doesn’t care about we the people.

I’d bet very few who support Biden’s agenda have taken the time to actually read AOC’s/Biden’s 14 page green new deal. Going into this clueless and uninformed. Wow 😳.

Sadly Republicans become complicient and lazy, they are doing NOTHING, I fear the “Balance of Powers” will be history within the next year.

The Republicans became lazy and complacent! All they care about is their own power and the hell with their voters and the USA! POTUS Trump had the election stolen from him while Barr, Wray and Haspel just watched and did NOTHING!
I am a life long Independent., I never voted for a Democrat, with the Republicans accepting the Democrats rigging the election, why bother voting in the future?

While I somewhat agree with your comment, we must FIGHT against this and form a NEW PARTY….THE FREEDOM PARTY….!!! THE AMERICAN FREEDOM PARTY….!! THE PATRIOT PARTY….!!! Anything but Republican…because they have betrayed us..!!! However, that said…it’s going to be hard to fight back if the SAME VOTING MACHINES are used..!!

That’s the dumbest idea I’ve heard. A third party guarantees democrats in power forever. Who’s going to run as a third party candidate?? A real conservative for the people? If so, then have those people run against the incumbent republicans to get new blood into the republican party but DO NOT create a third party or we all lose forever. Here’s an example of an election with a third+ party, Democrats with 45% of the vote, Republicans with 28% and Patriot/ Freedom party with 25% and don’t forget the libertarian party at 3%. Now who wins???

I have been a REPUBLICAN my adult life, and believe there are really good REPUBLICAN in the party. Like Gaetz, Scott, Hawley, and Green. Why start a new party? Third parties have for years been just a wasted vote. We can become TRUMPERS and anyone not wanting to be one can just leave the party. We have the numbers to just take the party over. We get REAL REPUBLICAN to run against the RINOS in the party. President TRUMP has said he’s not interested in starting a 3rd party, and I agree and hope more REAL REPUBLICAN will agree. We need to start now to make sure there are voting reform done before the 2022 election!! GOD bless TRUMP and those that support him and our country!!

The more incompetents the dems put in these positions, the more huge failures will occur in the Harris/Biden administration, and then the repubs will use those failures against the democrats in 2022 and 2024. We need to mobilize and retake the majority in the house and senate in 2 years and then get Mitch McConnell the F*&# out of there and put someone with balls in the senate leadership like Ted Cruz!

You know the Biden administration is really scraping the bottom of the barrel when they’re looking to nominate someone like Buttigieg for Transportation Secretary. A guy like him would be hard pressed getting a job as chief dog catcher in most businesses. To think he was once a mayor. Unbelievable what some people will vote for.

Nothing will change for the better until we abolish The Federal Department of Un-Education (thank you “Jimmy the Peanut”). A study of it will show just how much the USA population has been dumbed down since 1980. Get rid of the Federal Department of Un-Education now! Our public government school system is a total disgrace and if you are sending your kids to one of these cesspools you can expect them to graduate from high school unable to write their own name, to spell, do simple math, or think. Then if you send them to a big name college, expect them to come home in four years hating you, this country, and God. Because they do not study how this country was founded and why it was done that way, they will think socialism is great. However, the local school boards have their greedy little hands out for the federal money that ALWAYS has strings tied to it. Un-Common Core, and Every Child Left Behind are prime examples. If you have a child in high school, have them get off of computer games for a while and download Hillsdale College’s free online course on American History.

The Democrats are making the Republicans look foolish! For many years the Media who are the Democrats accomplices trashed the GOP, the president and his family and the Republicans did NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING!
Everyday the Democrats are getting stronger and again the Republicans are doing nothing to correct them, rebel and or retaliate.
I gave up on the party, it may be too late to save the GOP, Balance of Powers will be gone within a year or two.

Conservatives and Trump supporters need to retaliate against the media, the media cost Trump the 2020 election.
75 Million Trump supporters must unite and retaliate organize a powerful group, go after the most Liberal Media networks first, then Big Tech.
Boycott their networks
Boycott their sponsors
Demand cable companies offer ala -carte cable service, I never watched CNN, MSNBC, NBC, why should I have to pay for them and support them as I completely oppose their propaganda,there is strength in numbers
ATT who own CNN are already trying to sell them, this would force their hand.
Am sure there are people out there with better ideas, if we don’t do it say good by to the USA!

Biden said not long ago that using executive orders was demonstrative of being a dictator. It sure didn’t take him long to assume that role. He’s acting like a complete lunatic! I sure do miss President Trump. America needs him more now than ever. In just two weeks time, the Democrats are slowing killing our country. As lol we can do now is pray, and pray hard! This has to be God’s battle, because he’s the only one who can clean up this mess we are in. Maybe soon enough, the ones who voted for that lunatic will wake up and finally appreciate what they had with President Trump. May God have mercy on the USA!

THE REPUBLICAN SENATORS SHOULD HAVE LEARNED A LESSON FROM THE DEMOCRATS.
STICK TOGETHER, VOTE AGAINST EVERYTHING THAT JOE BIDEN WANTS AND PROPOSES. VOTE AGAINST ALL OF THE JOE BIDEN EXECUTIVE ORDERS. PUSH BACK AGAINST THE DEMOCRATS AT EVERY OPORTUNITY. LOOK FORWARD TO CONTROLING THE HOUSE AND SENATE IN 2022, AND WHITE HOUSE, SENATE, AND HOUSE IN 2022. DO NOT VOTE IN FAVOR OF FREAKS LIKE BUTTAGIG, AND TRANSGENDERS.

Biden picked him. He’s a hompsexual. Does the job as the head of the DOT have any other qualifications? Apparently not. Very surprised that anyone would challenge such a qualified individual. The Senators that didn’t vote or support him are they now declared homophobes, racists and domestic terrorists…just wondering.

Pete’s experience in the field of Transportation is multi-fold – (1) Driver of an Army Truck in the Transportation Unit in Iraq; (2) Saw the movie “Back to the Future” that dealt with magical transportation – what a great movie; (3) travelled from South Bend to Washington, DC and felt like Crocodile Dundee in New York.
Need I say more.

The Democrats have the vote no matter what. I guess the Republicans are playing nice to keep their wealth multiplying. Maybe they hope the Democrats will throw them a bone or two if they fall in line. We got to get the voting laws fixed or the Democrats will stay in power forever. The Republican Party is not strong enough to go toe to toe with the Democrats.

Sorry folks. as much as I hate socialists I hate traitors more. I will never vote again for mouse McConnell. I wish he could be impeached now. Once again the repubs roll over and play dead letting dems do anything they want. So I don’t think 2022 is going to be a win as they’d still play dead. Many of 74 million Trump supporters will stay home in droves. I will never give them another penny. The election was a fraud never stop talking about it Never support anyone who voted to keep Cheney Why do you think they had a secret vote. That guarantees no vote for any republican. Never vote for anyone stabbing Trump in the back. He will rise again. Puppetman Biden is the first president with neither a brain or balls (anencephalic eunuch) who is wired head to toe to control him like a remote vibrating dildo by Obama. The dems and a lot of Rhinos will have hell to pay the day they try to shaft us out of our second amendment rights. Like an Eastwood movie, punk, you feel lucky, go ahead, make my day. Violate the constitution no law. No law no peace. No peace. chaos Wait till the dems try to stop oil and gas in Texas. I’m just waiting to see what happens then. Cross the Delaware. Secede.
