of the $3.5 Trillion Reconciliation Bill

Original Article

Despite Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) was a hard “no” on the proposed $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill on Sunday, his colleague, Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), thinks Manchin will vote for the bill when it is at a much lower price tag.During an appearance on Fox Business Network on Monday, Tuberville told FBN’s Maria Bartiromo, based on his conversations with Manchin, that the West Virginia Democrat will come around to support the legislation pushed by his Democrat colleagues.“We’ve got 10 million jobs open, eight million people out of a job,” Tuberville said. “That doesn’t add up.

We have little to no faith in Senator Manchin. Senator Tubberville certainly has little regard in Lubbock, Texas where when hosting a possible recruit at a steakhouse WALKED OUT to take a different football coaching job.... he will never live that down. So, it is also hard to believe him when he speaks for Senator Manchin.

Manchin holds himself out as if he's some kind of pillar of virtue and integrity, but at the end of the day he's still a Rat and will ultimately fold like a cheap card table.

Manchin is forever dancing along a fine line. He's happy to vote for any progressive proposal, but he needs to provide a little pony show for his majority-Republican West Virginia voters, giving the impression that he's a moderate. The dance he performs puts him in a position to receive loads of special consideration to fund projects in West Virginia, and to receive lucrative job offers for his family members. In May for example, Biden appointed Manchin's wife, Gayle, to the Appalachian Regional Commission, a federal-state partnership to boost economic development across 13 states stretching from Georgia to New York. The commission holds several meetings a year; its members spend their time touring Appalachia on fact-finding visits. For this, she will be paid $163,000 per year, until Biden increases federal salaries even more, to keep up with the Biden upward inflationary spiral. The job is similar to John Kerry's, only on a regional, much smaller scale, instead of international. Travel around, stay in first-rate hotels, be wined and dined, and be taken on tours in vans or busses with other commission members. Sorta like Michelle Obama's hospital directorship which paid something like $300,000/year to attend hospital board meetings. She was appointed to this after then-senator Obie pushed through a multi-million dollar federal disbursement to the Chicago hospital chain. One hand washes the other. We pay for these expenditures with our taxes.

Makes no difference what Manchin does. The Republicans will sell out America again. They will go along with increasing debt ceiling and their cronies are all lined up for a “taste” ($) of whatever comes out of this or any other legislation. Focusing on Manchin and hoping on Trump as a Savior is a waste of time. The Gutless Old Pathetic party that is the Republicans party is the enemy of the people. MAGA is a threat to this group of serpents and they will fight it just as hard as the Democrats. Wake the f up and stop thinking this primary thing will work. Wake the f up and realize who the real and most Existential threat to MAGA is. The Do Nothing Republicans!

Manchin is just a needed element in the DC drama. He adds a little tension but ultimately changes nothing. A Court Jester sometimes did the same. And in our oldest tales a Cassandra is usually right and always ignored. Beware the Ides of March! I'm not knocking Manchin himself; I can't read his mind. Perhaps he is sincere and trying to reduce the madness.

We had the lowest unemployment numbers ever, 2 years ago, but now it will take trillions of tax payer dollars to achieve the same results after 8 months of the Moron-in-Chief and the democrats in control. And after it's spent, we still won't be there and we'll probably need more taxpayer funds.

Former prime minister Paul Keating has slammed the new nuclear submarines deal between the US, UK and Australia, arguing the US military can't beat a bunch of Taliban rebels in pick-up trucks.In a damning assessment of the agreement jointly announced this morning by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, US President Joe Biden and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Mr Keating said the deal represented a further 'dramatic loss of Australian sovereignty'.

In a letter to US Department of Agriculture Secretary Thomas Vilsack, the North American Meat Institute (NAMI) asserted that rising prices have more to do with the labor shortages plaguing the nation, saying that the administration “refuses to acknowledge” the issue.“The administration cannot ignore the fundamental principles of supply and demand.

With 61 percent of the estimated vote in, early returns showed that 5.3 million voters supported keeping Newsom in office, while 2.5 million Californians voted in favor of his removal.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Despite warnings the race would be close, California Gov. Gavin Newsom decisively defeated efforts to kick him out of office, a win the Democrat cast as an endorsement of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and his party’s liberal values. Newsom cruised to victory in the recall election Tuesday, boosted by healthy turnout among an overwhelmingly Democratic electorate, ensuring the nation’s most populous state will remain a laboratory for progressive policies. With an estimated two-thirds of ballots counted, the “no” response to the question of whether to recall Newsom was ahead by a 30-point margin.

The headline stories today are large, and so is the background as these issues surface. Context becomes increasingly important as each aspect is reviewed. As you look at the stories, remember this context (emphasized as a reminder):(snip)Factually, President Trump’s strategic approach toward foreign threats and foreign intervention (through the use of geopolitical economic pressure) was a major paradigm shift that removed the Defense Department from a primary role, and placed them back into a more appropriate ‘contingency’ role when it came to foreign policy and national security. It was obvious from the outset of the Trump administration that the Pentagon did not like that position.
