WV Sen. Manchin will back Jackson for
Supreme Court

Original Article

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said on Friday that he will vote for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination, making it ever more likely she’ll be confirmed to the court. If all 50 Democrats back Jackson, the party will not need any GOP votes to win her confirmation. Manchin was not expected to oppose her, but was seen as one of two possibly uncertain votes along with Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.). “After meeting with her, considering her record, and closely monitoring her testimony and questioning before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week, I have determined I intend to vote for her nomination to serve on the Supreme  CORRECTIONS*

Anyone voting for any Democrat is actively trying to dismantle this country's constitution and turning it into a dystopian totalitarian state.

"If all 50 Democrats back Jackson, the party will not need any GOP votes to win her confirmation." How do they figure that? Last I heard the Senate has 100 members, and if all 50 Republicans vote no (highly unlikely) then that makes it 50/50, no confirmation. I am sick of seeing the uninformed notion that the VP can break a tie on a SCOTUS nomination, SHE CAN"T.

Joe...obviously the elites and deep state have photos and videos of you having sex with children. This makes you a pedophile. It's apparent you want a "soft on pedophiles" judge installed when those photos and videos of you sexually abusing children come out. Tell us Joe, are you sexually abusing boys or girls? Check with the thing you are going to vote for if you aren't sure, but not being a biologist it won't be able to answer. Perhaps a zoologist is called for, maybe that's more your predilection. How young are they Joe? Infants? 3? 4? 8? That would be about your speed. Had enough yet America? Whatcha waitin for? The next election?

Manchin is a democrat. Zero honor. They care nothing for American Constitutional law or civil norms. Money and power. He epitomizes everything wrong with our culture as lorded over by democrats. He brings home the money for his dupes in WVA. That is all that matters to them. Now we know why McConnell played the political game of stating he would be a no vote on this leftist judge. He knew Manchin's yes vote was a gimme.

Stating that you may or may not vote with the party on an issue is a great way to stand out among the mob, lots of press, probably lots of moolah in the backhand, praises etc, then when you are found to be unreliable and manipulative, there are others of the same ilk that will still support you. Ain't politicking the best fun?

A Canadian branch of Home Depot sparked outrage after it posted a notice to employees about the benefits of “white privilege” and included a checklist for those who are “white, male, Christian, cisgender, able-bodied, and heterosexual.” The notice, which is titled “Leading Practices — Unpacking privilege,” was headquarters confirmed to The Post that the white privilege notice was material from its Canadian division. She said it hadn’t been approved by the company’s diversity and inclusion department. The flyer had a Home Depot logo at the top.

The IEA 10-point plan to drive “changes in the behaviour of consumers” and reduce gas demand at the pump includes reducing speed limits, working from home three days a week, more electric cars, car-free Sundays, more cycle lanes, cheaper public transport and greater use of long-distance trains over planes.

It’s one thing for Jada to have affairs. This is Hollywood, after all. But for her to openly discuss those affairs on a podcast is beyond the beyond.

Chatter concerning the possible removal of President Joe Biden, 79, from the White House erupted online this weekend after the president on multiple occasions seemed to blurt out escalation talk regarding Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, all in contrast with White House messaging. The Daily Wire highlighted that Biden’s seemingly off-the-cuff remarks had to quickly be addressed and walked-back by the administration. In one instance, Biden told a group of American troops in Poland that they were going to see the “backbone” and “guts” of the Ukrainian people “when you’re there,” suggesting the U.S. was putting boots on the ground in Ukraine, in contrast with White House statements and talking points.

Is the Constitution inherently racist? Brandon Hasbrouck says yes. In Boston University Law Review article “The Antiracist Constitution,” the Washington and Lee University professor alleges our nation’s founding document “serves white supremacy.” He aids his argument with George Floyd’s death, the Fugitive Slave Act, and the fact that Thomas Jefferson owned slaves. The professor points out a peculiarity: It is June 28, 1776. The Continental Congress orders that Thomas Jefferson’s draft of the Declaration of Independence “lie on the table.” … Jefferson, who enslaves hundreds of people, nonetheless includes an assertion that “all men are created equal.” Moving forward to fugitive slaves: It is September 18, 1850. Congress passes the Fugitive Slave Act…

Joe Biden's 2023 budget proposal includes $32 billion to fight rising crime in the U.S., according to two White House officials, despite years-long calls from the progressive wing of his party to defund police.Massive crime spikes, particularly in cities, are one issue that could threaten Democrat's majority in the upcoming midterm elections. Republicans are effectively branding the issue as widely Democrat-caused due to calls to abolish police and rhetoric against law enforcement in general.The officials tell Axios that Biden's budget proposal would require $30 billion in new spending over the next decade to expand law enforcement and increase crime prevention.

In fact, the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows they feel America is divided, not united, under Biden. “I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide, but to unify; who doesn’t see red states and blue states, only sees the United States,” Biden told followers after declaring victory on Nov. 8, 2020.

President Biden received hundreds of thousands of “excess” votes in Democratic-controlled areas in the 2020 election, according to an academic study on voter fraud that suggests the push to relax voting standards created new opportunities for electoral mischief. John R.

But, in America, the censors at ABC didn’t want us to hear Smith yelling at Rock when he went back to his seat. Viewers in Australia and Japan, however, heard and saw the whole thing:
