If you're like me, you've often heard the term "Biden's handlers", and you find yourself wondering who exactly his "handlers" are? This is, in my view, particularly relevant, because as one prominent left-leaning ATS member has opined several times, the POTUS is actually meant to be a cadre/committee of advisors and decision makers that shape the policy for the President to implement. I wouldn't have been as flummoxed by this statement had it not been for the repetition of this radical idea as a talking point that I have read in different online sources, and I've heard bandied about on different MSM programs.

So, let me see if I understand this correctly: the so-called "EXECUTIVE BRANCH", as laid out as one of three governmental pillars in US Constitution...is not REALLY intended to be an authoritative man/woman leading our nation, the "Commander in Chief", the "Leader of the Free World" (a bit hyperbolic but you should get the drift). What the founders //really// intended is that POTUS is merely a figurehead; it's just a ceremonial position. It's an anachronism, kind of like royalty in the UK. The ~real~ movers & shakers, decision makers are actually the group of un-elected bureaucrats around POTUS, hovering just outside of the bright lights of press conferences, looming in the shadows, pulling strings as they linger off-stage, pushing THEIR view of how the nation should be run.

Huh.

So I think this warrants a re-examination of the civics education I was given in my 10th grade history class. Somewhere along the way, my instructor seems to have fouled up. Rather than laying out the duties and powers of the office of POTUS, our teacher should've been describing the real intention of the Constitution's framers: a Central Committee power structure, wherein members are not directly elected but rather "SE-lected" based on their clear and obvious mandate to Rule over the citizens of the US. Hmm, this way of running the government feels familiar; it's almost like I've seen or heard about this, but just somewhere else.



But in any case, since all of us stand corrected WRT what Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Hamilton and Franklin really intended with the Executive Branch, I feel it's only fair that the folks who'd compromise Joe Biden's Politburo should step forward and put their identities into the public sphere, so we can all recognize who our true leaders are. Below are just a few luminaries (one could author a book about all of these connections) among the crowd of folks that would serve as Biden's "Steering Committee", were he to be elected

SOURCES
- Biden's Mystery Economic Team
- Wikipedia Page for Joe Biden's 2020 Presidential Campaign
- Biden's Transition Organization

Heather Boushey - Biden's chief economic advisor. From her own bio, a self-admitted and un-abashed "Feminist Economist" o_O, whatever that is (didn't realize we categorize what are ostensibly financial researchers in social buckets??):



Boushey was born in Seattle and grew up in Mukilteo, Washington.[5][full citation needed] She received her Ph.D. in Economics from the New School for Social Research and her B.A. from Hampshire College.

She currently sits on the board of the Opportunity Institute and is an associate editor of Feminist Economics and a senior fellow at the Schwartz Center for Economic and Policy Analysis at the New School for Social Research. Boushey was previously a Research Affiliate with the National Poverty Center at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy and was on the editorial review board of WorkingUSA and the Journal of Poverty. Her work has appeared in Dollars & Sense, In These Times, and New Labor Forum, and peer-reviewed journals, including Review of Political Economy and National Women’s Studies Association Journal.


Jared Bernstein - One of my favorite staff members! A member of the transition board. Read over his bio on Wikipedia and see if you can establish what in his Curriculum Vitae gives this person any type of position as national economic advisor??



Born to a Jewish-American family,[4] Bernstein graduated with a bachelor's degree in music from the Manhattan School of Music where he studied double bass with Orin O'Brien. He also earned a Master of Social Work from Hunter College as well as a master's degree in philosophy and a PhD in social welfare from Columbia University.[5]


Symone Sanders - Race baiter. Read her documented statement concerning what role "white people" should/shouldn't have in the DNC, and then ask yourself, hmmm, wonder what she thinks of ol' Joe, and how fast/hard she's going to push to install Kamala??



When Sanders spoke on CNN on November 23, 2016, about the future of the DNC and the Democratic Party, she dismissed the idea of Howard Dean returning as DNC chairman, saying,

Howard Dean is also on record maligning young people and millennials. Telling those Bernie folks they just need to get in line and maligning Bernie Sanders. And that is not what we need. In my opinion, we don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now. The Democratic Party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in our leadership and throughout the staff at the highest levels from the vice chairs to the secretaries all the way down to the people working in the offices at the DNC.


Felicia Wong - another identity politician masquerading as an "economist". Here bio lists her as "President and CEO of the Roosevelt Institute, a New York-based think tank and campus network that promotes a bold economic and political vision capable of bringing the ideals of Franklin and Eleanor into the 21st century." Also is the co-author of "The Hidden Rules of Race: Barriers to an Inclusive Economy".

Ms. Wong is also a closet socialist, AHEM, excuse me Democratic Socialist

Cedric Richmond - member of the "Congressional Black Caucus"; embroiled in several controversies related to the Trump administration. Seems like the hilight of his Wikipedia page is his participation in some annual congressional baseball game (guess he wasn't in the cross-hairs of the Bernie Bro that embarked on a shooting rampage at one such game)



Richmond plays in the annual Congressional Baseball Game. He was the starting Democratic pitcher for each of the five years since his election and the Democrats won each game. He had a 2.85 earned run average, 1.67 walks plus hits per inning pitched and 45 strikeouts in his 27 innings pitched in that span. In 2016 Republican team manager Joe Barton called him the best player to ever participate in the game.[22] Richmond lost his first game in 2016, a day after participating through the night in the 2016 United States House of Representatives sit-in.[7]

When you say "Biden's handlers", I see a night club full of dominatrix girls.

Something about Joe makes me think he's much more of a "hands on" guy rather than the submissive/subservient type, at least as it pertains to interactions with females. As far a politically, we see now from Joe's staff that he is completely on his knees for the DNC.

If you are right, why Kamala is there?

So does this apply to all 45 presidents? Or just Biden?

I was pretty sure the constitution allowed for a cabinet....oh yeah its called the Appointment clause. (Had to look it up)

So exactly which cabinet level positions are these clowns qualified for? The Minister of Silly Walks, the Minster of the Inquisition, and the Minister of Waffer Thin Mints or Dead Parrots?

To the OP, I think it was feminist economics that led to the one bookstore where you were only asked to pay what you felt you owed, and all the employees were just unpaid volunteers.

Yeah, it went out of business pretty quickly.

You're the one saying he's entitled to a cabinet as if the people advising him are going to be there.

Behind the Curtain - the Radical Marxists, Feminists and Identity Politicians Handling Joe Biden


I’ve said this before but if these Democrats were as cool as you guys make them out to be I’d be a Democrat.

Democrats are Republicans at this moment in history. And Republicans are some strange mash up of old men reliving their childhood bullying people and straight up far-right fascists. There may be some outliers on the Republican side that don’t identify with any of that, but it doesn’t matter. In for a penny, in for a pound.

I disagree with this whole 'committee' premise. POTUS' cabinet and advisors are hand-picked.

having said that, yes, there's a deep state of unelected bureaucrats that implement policy. They don't help Trump much and he's having problems removing and going around them.

who says the ones listed are Biden's brain trust? I wonder if there's a real inner circle that no one know about.
certainly the media establishment isn't going to look into.

Hopefully at some point most Democrats realize that their leadership tried to co-opt Marxist and failed. Sadly, through my personal view, I don't think that is the case.

Really to alot of Dems, the idea is something like, "Democrats are for the small people, CNN/NBC/CBS/ABC/PBS/MSNBC tells me so!"

But I do think that common sense has made a dent in some of that. Not as much as I would like, but at some level that is an accurate statement.

An aside for our not American ATS folk, you may have a "stable" socialist democratic society, but what the Marxist here want, and if they take over, will be coming to you eventually. It's just a matter of time if they win. You may root them on, and that is your deal, but I am telling you, what the young (and old) Marxist want here is nothing less than constant and total horror for everyone that disagrees with anything they say or do. Ignore my thoughts at your own peril.

We can't ask congress. No simple pleb can even look upon their radiant faces without burning alive in our mortal coils unless through a TV screen.

God forbid we even question congress, it's not our place in this realm to understand their workings, much less have any say about those who've kept a bench warm for their entire lives.

Congress needs an overhaul and term limits is a start, but they'll be grandfathered in. No average person will have a say in the bill or amendment. Only those whose life line comes from filling government roles.

Presidential cabinets exist TO ADVISE the POTUS, not make the decisions and shuffle the President out to a press conference to relay it to the world.

Again, with this pent-up teenage anger you have against Republicans. I am not a Republican. Your issue is that you label anybody not as far left as you a Republican. FFS I'd expect you'd cross paths with Che Guevara and call him a conservative.

I would be willing to bet a decent chunk of change that a non-trivial % of Biden's advisory and transition committees were not "hand picked". Kamala Harris was foisted on him as a VEEP selection by the Democratic party apparatus; this was a not very well kept secret leading up to the campaign.

Look up some of the miscreants around him: there are many holdovers from Hillary's '16 campaign.

I never represented this group as Biden's "brain trust" or the keepers to his inner sanctum. To satisfy my curiosity, I researched who some of his "advisors" are (because you can damn well be sure the shadowy figures looming around Washington aren't going to jump out and introduce themselves, LEAST OF all from Biden's gang), and I felt obliged to share what I'd learned.
