Sen. Joe Manchin continues to protect America from the radical left, as his opposition to controversial Biden Federal Reserve pick Sarah Bloom Raskin forced her to withdraw her nomination.

Naturally, Raskin blamed Republicans for holding her nomination “hostage,” without noting that their opposition couldn’t have stopped her if it weren’t for Democrat Manchin’s “no” added to it. She also downplayed the reason they opposed her: her previous comments about wanting to use the Fed’s power to pressure banks, insurance companies and other financial firms to engage in “climate change” activism and discourage lending to oil and gas companies.

Yes, in a time of skyrocketing gas prices, runaway inflation, tanking stock markets, unprecedented national debt and potential world war that’s cut off Russian oil supplies, that’s exactly what the Fed needs to be concentrating on.
