REPORT: Center for American Progress Has Biden Administration’s Ear

It is no secret that Joe Biden has people whispering in his ear for policy.

For instance, we know the teacher's unions have been well represented in policy.

If the latest reports are accurate, the Center for American Progress is also giving Joe some ideas.

Who Is Calling the Shots

Now, it is not necessarily out of the norm for any administration to ask for input from think tanks.

That does not mean it is right or should be happening.

Donors and think tanks should not be setting policy in any administration.

Policy should be driven by the will of the people.

If those organizations and people have some ideas on implementing that policy, that is a different matter altogether.

That, however, is not what is happening here.

As we have repeatedly seen, Joe is letting these organizations run his administration in terms of writing policy.

To that point, the Center for American Progress (CAP) has a LOT of people working for Biden.

Christy Goldfuss, CAP's senior vice president for energy and environment policy, and Jesse Young, a senior State Department adviser, have shared as much in email exchanges.

For instance, in one email, Goldfuss states, "You all keep taking our good people … so it's safe to say that I'm a little behind."

CAP founder and chairman was also recently hired by Joe Biden.

That, of course, being John Podesta.

Podesta is now sitting on $370 billion of taxpayer funds to spend as he sees fit on climate change.

Remember Neera Tanden? She is the former CAP president and after failing to pass through the Senate as the OMB boss, Biden brought her on as a senior adviser and staff secretary.

Fox News noted that White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, top White House economic adviser Brian Deese, senior White House economic adviser Gene Sperling, Veteran Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough, and Department of Defense Chief of Staff Kelly Magsamen are all CAP veterans.

Protect the Public's Trust Michael Chamberlain stated, "As Protect the Public's Trust has discovered from tracking ethics waivers granted to political appointees, the revolving door connecting lobbying firms and activist organizations with powerful posts in federal agencies in the Biden Administration is spinning furiously.

"This has happened to such an extent that the organizations themselves are commenting, although facetiously, about losing all their good people.

"Considering a number of incidents PPT has uncovered in which appointees have appeared to cross the line between their advocacy and their public service, it's almost enough to make the public wonder who is really calling the shots."

What it sounds like to me is that CAP meetings are now just taking place in a different building, that now being the White House.

It is estimated that Biden has at least 70 former CAP employees in his administration.

It is rather amusing that in the same sentence, CAP's mission says that it is nonpartisan and progressive, pushing "bold, progressive ideas."

That is who is in Joe Biden's ear.
