Original Article

Sen. Joe Manchin couldn’t bear to watch Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s GOP-trashing floor speech Thursday night — covering his face and ultimately walking away during the comments.The animated reaction came as Schumer was speaking before the Senate officially extended the government’s borrowing authority — and it was all captured by a CSPAN camera.“Republicans played a dangerous and risky partisan game, and I am glad that their brinksmanship did not work,” Schumer began his remarks, with Manchin sitting behind him in view of the camera.

Trying to remember, when has Schumer ever been civil? He has been the biggest partisan hack in the US Senate leadership for years.

And we have Nancy Pelosi on record in or around 2006 stating that Democrats wanted to drain the swamp. The swamp became bigger. Democrats really don't know their butt from a hole in the ground and if you are of the percentage that think big government is the solution, I think you might want to take another look. I will sum it up. God or government. Who is running your life? I can tell you this - it isn't God running you through the swamp waters. . .

As a conservative living near W,Va., I’ve watched Joe Manchin for years, always wanting to believe he would keep his word. This time he comes through and I’m proud of him.

Talk is cheap, Joe. We all know this is a game you play - you 'blast' the far left for the cameras, and then negotiate your price for their support. We know you will never change sides because to do so would be to give up all the influence you have playing both sides of the aisle. If you REALLY had any integrity, you would jump ship, announce you are no longer caucusing with the communists, and flip the Senate over. Given their treatment of you since Xiden was installed, you act like an abuse spouse who takes your beating and crawls back for more.

I am sick and tired of that Comrade Schumer who has never held a real job. He went straight into politics and never left. I blame NY for keep sending him back. He is one of the reasons our Republic is failing. Thanks for nothing Schumer.

Finding the way the senate is behaving lately is frightening. Yes it’s never been populated by the best and brightest. I’m with what #6 posts. Listen, we all know the ways of the reptilian upchuck schemer. He wants to take our firearms away, bankrupt and enslave us. Manchin?…he likes to play drama queen. Like other above posters. He’s just looking for his right price. I don’t trust him to do the right thing for his fellow West Virginians, nor his fellow citizens of the USA. Meanwhile the senator I didn’t vote for is being terrorized. Has anyone heard anything about Manchin being harassed.

Have to wonder why this guy has never changed parties. And he's right about civility but the fact is there a civil democrat in the whole country. These people are animals, rabid pit bulls foaming at the mouth. And if anybody is wondering about McConnell caving look no further than his wife. His wife's family are shipbuilders from China. And who controls shipping in China, you got it, the Chinese military. They are worth a fortune. You see McConnell like Biden is owned by China. Think about it, it's why he never supported Trump on his China policies or wherever China had an interest. It's like voting against your own family.

No real surprise as McConnell and the wimpy Republicans just did what they have done in the past, cave to the leftist, liberal, and socialist Democrats, thus helping the Democrats pass their bill. That’s just about the same UniParty tactic that the wimpy Republicans have been using over many years. Only the State level Republican parties can stop that in the future by getting rid of the wimpy UniParty politicians who they have been nominating for Congressional and Senatorial seats and put up fighting candidates instead.

As we wrote earlier today, the Biden Administration is having a hard time dotting its I’s and crossing its T’s, when it comes to implementing a COVID vaccine mandate on businesses with 100 or more employees, something they assured us was needed immediately to control the Chinese virus across America. So far, it’s just empty promises — written on a piece of paper — somewhere in the West Wing.The current White House seems to have an ongoing issue in several policy areas with talking tough then not following through. One of the most glaring examples of this recently, of course, was the ill-planned, troops pull-out in Afghanistan.
