Encourage President Biden and VP Harris to Clean House in Federal Agencies

Congratulations to all of you who joined me in asking President Biden and other Democrats to take a more aggressive approach in standing up for Democratic voters against Republicans.

We sure got a quick and big response from President Biden and other Dem leaders. President Biden has become so aggressive in standing up for Americans that we’re referring to him as Dark Brandon now. We probably weren’t the only people asking him to do this, but we sure did contribute to the effort.

Those of you who did write, let’s build on our success. For others who didn’t write, in response to my previous essay — here’s your chance to help make an impact in another area.

If you agree with me that President Biden needs to clean house in federal agencies — to fire staff members who are protecting Trump followers rather than doing their jobs and to put pressure on the rest of the staff to do their jobs — then please join me in contacting him about these issues.

I’m starting with 2 agencies, because there wasn’t room in the contact form for me to cover any more than that. In writing to President Biden (Sample letter is a few paragraphs below here), feel free to substitute the names of the agencies you are most concerned about, rather than the two I have started with here.

#1 The Federal Reserve

Most people unfortunately seem to believe the Right Wing economic talking points that are spread so often — even by mainstream media. So their economic views are like those of Republicans. People on the Federal Reserve Board are no exception. The Federal Reserve Board members seem as if they are going to cause a recession with their policies. Here is an essay about this by Paul Krugman, Distinguished Professor of Economics at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and columnist for The New York Times.

The Federal Reserve often seems to be dovish when Republicans are in power and hawkish when Dems are. It’s possible that Right Wing members of the Federal Reserve Board may be doing this in order to hurt Democrats’ chances in the midterms. But maybe not. Maybe they just mistakenly believe Right Wing views.

Let’s ask the president to put all the pressure he can on the Federal Reserve Board not to cause a totally unnecessary recession.

#2 The Secret Service is an agency the president needs to clean up and reform, as a matter of national security. They are so ineffective that they failed to prepare for violence on Jan. 6, despite warnings that it was going to happen. Then they deleted important evidence from that day.

Carol Leonnig, who has been reporting on the Secret Service for Washington Post for years, wrote an excellent book on what needs to be reformed about the Secret Service and how to do it.

Below is my letter to President Biden regarding this. I wrote to Vice President Kamala Harris too, using the same contact form, and I invite you to, also. Feel free to copy any part or all of my letter, to send as yours.

Here is the contact form where you can send the message to President Biden and/or Vice President Harris.

Dear President Biden

Thanks for standing up for the public against the GOP, that is trying to destroy democracy.

I am writing to ask you to clean house in federal agencies- — to fire staff members who protect Trumpers rather than do their jobs — & to put pressure on the rest to do their jobs.

Most people believe Right Wing economic talking points. They are spread even by mainstream media. People on the Federal Reserve Board do too. Fed members seem like they are going to cause a recession with hawkish policies. Don’t take my word for it. Here is an essay about this by Paul Krugman, Distinguished Professor of Economics at the Graduate Center of the City University of NY & columnist for The NY Times.

Please do everything you can to get the the Federal Reserve Board not to cause a totally unnecessary recession — & especially not right before the midterms when our rights & our democracy are at stake.
