After weeks of waiting and speculating, Joe Biden formally announced Thursday that he will nominate Judge Merrick Garland as his Attorney General.
“Our first-rate nominees to lead the Justice Department are eminently qualified, embody character and judgement that is beyond reproach, and have devoted their careers to serving the American people with honor and integrity,” Biden said in a statement. “They will restore the independence of the Department so it serves the interests of the people not a presidency, rebuild public trust in the rule of law, and work tirelessly to ensure a more fair and equitable justice system.”
“They are among the most accomplished legal minds in our country who also reflect the best of America’s full range of talents and background,” he added. “I am honored they accepted this call to serve at such a critical time in our nation’s history.”
Garland, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, gained national recognition in 2016 when President Obama named him to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.
But, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared that because it was so close to the 2016 presidential election, the new Supreme Court Justice should be chosen by the next president: Donald J. Trump.
Joe Biden’s nominees are replete with former Obama administration officials; his Garland nomination serves as a direct confirmation that a Biden administration will be the equivalent to a third term of Barack Obama.
Biden nominated John Kerry, secretary of state under Obama, as “climate czar.” During his time with Obama, Kerry negotiated the Iran Nuclear Deal and the Paris Climate Agreement, both of which President Trump declared the worst deals in history.
Both are considered to be parts of Obama’s legacy, which Biden will restore by rejoining.
Obama won’t be taking the oath of office again, as presidents in the United States can only serve two terms.
But, there is no need for an oath. Joe Biden is standing in for him.
Joe Biden is, undoubtedly, Barack Obama’s third term.

The GOP is done as a Political Party. They do not know how to fight Communism, cannot agree on anything, do not know how to govern, are quick to backstab a fellow member, and they are just a waste of money and time to continue supporting this inept group that cannot help themselves.
Yet they won’t stand up to/challenge a Democrat.
OF course not.. THEY ARE JUST the same, these days..
And on the positive side Garland leaves what could have been a life time job of Judicial Democrat destruction and will be limited at most to only 4 years as Attorney General. On the negative side Alinsky Democrats like Obama and Biden always deliver the opposite of what they promise before taking power;
“They will restore the independence of the Department so it serves the interests of the people not a presidency, rebuild public trust in the rule of law, and work tirelessly to ensure a more fair and equitable justice system.” Will be delivered to THE PEOPLE as;
“Restore the Dependence of the Justice Department so it serves the interests of THE PARTY not THE PEOPLE, and further destroy any public trust in the rule of law or in government promised propaganda, and work tirelessly to ensnare a now less fair and inequitable justice system that will serve THE PARTY to ensure they remain in perpetual positions of power” Another remake of the bad movie “Idiocracy” in full bloom. Biden is to Obama, as Medvedev was to Putin. Same old Socialist Plagiarism which brainless Biden is famous for.
You assume, the GOP will some how WIN another election, which i predict they won’t!
there is now only 1 party the communist party.
The republian party is out. The democats are changing their name. We are not certain what the new name will be, we can only guess. The old faces of Obama are active again. What they did change and control are in the air. They love to keep us all guessing. The young will get a big bit of what they were told that socialist and communist were the perfect way to govern. No new clothes or electronics and going to bed hungry. As for me, I am glad that I’m 83 and not 38 or 28 or 18.
They already have the perfect name. COMMUCRAT party!
Lyin’ Joe may be Obama’s “third term” but I predict he won’t serve out that four years. If he’s got any brains left (doubtful) he’ll have a full squad of Secret Service agents to keep track of Kamala Harris 24/7 to keep her away from him. Also he’ll need a food taster and a couple of agents to scout out the tops and bottoms of any staircases he’s on for “stray” banana peels and such…
SHE won’t need to off him.. The dems in the house, will just IMPEACH HIM via the 25th amendment, and INSTALL Kamala as potus.
