Sen. Joe Manchin, a regular thorn in President Biden's legislative agenda, urged caution in shaking up Senate rules on Monday, suggesting he has not dropped his opposition to ditching the filibuster.Democrats have been trying to win over the West Virginia senator as part of a push to change the rules to pass voting rights legislation.But Manchin, whose opposition doomed Biden's massive Build Back Better spending plans, signaled he remained opposed.He told Congressional reporters that the filibuster was 'the tradition of the Senate here in 232 years now ...

I do not trust Joe Manchin. I think he's holding out just to get something he wants.

Crap Daily Mail article, shilling for the prog left. Manchin has been and continues to be clear on his position on this. Another lie, just as when Xiden said they were still negotiating Bring Back Bolshevik, and Manchin came out and said he hadn't spoken with anyone about it since it came out in opposition. DM may have good photos, but their political reporting is first-class garbage.

If the Democrats kill the filibuster in the US Senate soon, once they pass whatever leftist, progressive, and socialist Democrat bills they wish and feel that they are about to loose the 2022 election, the Democrats will quickly put the filibuster back in place before the wimpy Republicans take over the Senate majority.

Manchin's knowledge regarding the filibuster is lacking. The Senate's first filibuster rule occurred in 1806 (215 years ago); it was not a cloture rule. The Senate's first cloture rule was adopted in 1917 when senators adopted Senate Rule 22, which allowed the Senate to invoke cloture and thereby limit debate with a two-thirds majority vote. Notwithstanding Manchin's mistaken memory regarding the first filibuster rule, it's imperative that the voting bill currently before the Senate must not pass. The future of our two party federal government is at stake. The primary intent of the subject voting bill is that hereafter the Republicans never elect another Republican President, and never have another majority in both the House and the Senate - starting with the November, 2022 election.

Democrat Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick won the special election in Florida's 20th Congressional District on Tuesday to succeed the late Democrat Rep. Alcee Hastings, who died last year after a battle with cancer. Cherfilus-McCormick’s victory, called by the Associated Press minutes after the polls closed, gives Democrats the first congressional election of 2022 and a slight increase to their current majority. The district, as currently drawn, is a safe Democratic seat in southeast Florida and one of only two black-majority seats in the Sunshine State. However, the district’s boundaries are subject to change this year as state lawmakers finalize their redistricting process.

Shoppers across the U.S. are confronting alarming shortages of basic foodstuffs, as a variety of factors exacerbate supply chain issues. Severe winter storms have disrupted shipping in parts of the country over the past week, and surging cases of Omicron are driving millions of absences from work, disrupting basic functions such as shipping, unloading and stocking. On Monday, the U.S. confirmed a world record 1.46 million new cases of COVID-19, and one economic expert has predicted that five million people, or 3 percent of the national workforce, will have to call in sick this week as the virus spreads.

The vaporous predication for the FBI’s opening of its “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation of “Russian collusion” is often attributed solely to anti-Trump bias, with no more to learn from its study. But sustained examination shows it to be not only pretextual but also designed to conceal American history’s most insidious governmental treachery since Benedict Arnold.According to the FBI, the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation was opened on July 31, 2016, because lowly Trump aide George Papadopoulos had been told by one Professor Joseph Mifsud that Russia had emails harmful to Hillary Clinton. Two weeks later, Australian (FFG) diplomat, British-connected Alexander Downer, pried from Papadopoulos that Russia had dirt on Hillary,

The president is expected to use the issue of voting rights to call for reform of the Senate filibuster rules and condemn Republicans, according to a Politico preview of the speech. “We are doubling down, kicking it into another gear, we are going right to the belly of the beast, or ground zero, for voter suppression, voter subversion and obstruction,” White House director of the Office of Public Engagement Cedric Richmond told Politico.

Most Americans today have a romanticized (and extraordinarily narrow) historical understanding of the conflict that we call the Civil War. In their imaginations, it goes something like this: With passions inflamed by a moral renaissance in the North regarding the institution of slavery in the South, the two sides decided to go to war over the issue. In the end, the evil South was righteously razed by the armies of the North, and thus, slavery was ended, and the former slaves made American citizens, as Abraham Lincoln intended.

I live in the Fort Worth area and one of the places that I enjoy going for some great comfort food is the West Side Cafe. It has some great fluffy western omelettes and wonderful chicken fried steak. But truly, everything is good there. It was hard to get a better breakfast than one of their omelettes, their sausage, and their thick, but wonderful rye bread. They source very good products. But a couple of months ago, I ordered the rye bread and they said it was out — that it was a supply chain issue. It hasn’t come back. I thought, “Dang, Brandon even got my rye bread!”

Texas scientists rolled out a new COVID-19 vaccine, saying it’s patent-free and can be produced by any manufacturer in any country. The vaccine, called Corbevax, was developed by the Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine. It has successfully passed human trials as safe and effective. The new treatment is based off protein-based technology that has been used in other vaccines for decades and it does not use MRNA. India has already authorized production of 100 million doses per month of the new vaccine. Meanwhile, Texas scientists say not-for-profit vaccines will help defeat COVID-19 quicker.

Dana Finley Morrison, a Missouri-based fraternity and sorority worker, was flying from St Lucia to Miami on Saturday when she spotted the pilot's 'Let's Go Brandon' sticker.

Morrison tweeted to American Airlines, saying: 'Y'all cool with your pilots displaying this kind of cowardly rhetoric on their crew luggage when they're in uniform, about to board a plane?

The White House considers Georgia as “ground zero” for voter suppression laws. Somewhere along the way, Georgia Democrats didn’t receive the memo. They question why Biden and Kamala are traveling to their state tomorrow to echo the themes of Biden’s highly divisive January 6 speech and talk up his endorsement of a filibuster carveout in order to pass voting rights legislation in the Senate. This is a perfect example of the tone-deafness that plagues the Biden administration. Biden and Harris can’t even get on the same page as their own party activists.

As Breitbart News has chronicled, Democrats on the 51-member New York City Council approved a plan last month that allows more than 800,000 foreign nationals with green cards, visas, and work permits the opportunity to vote in citywide elections so long as they have resided in the city for at least 30 consecutive days. Adams approved the plan this week
