As House progressives block Manchin deal
with Dems on oil and gas permitting, he
blames GOP

Original Article

Posted By: Skinnydip, 9/21/2022 9:56:47 AM

In August, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin reached a deal with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer under which the coal state lawmaker would cast the deciding vote in favor of Democrats' $745 billion Inflation Reduction Act in exchange for a promise from Democratic leaders to include language streamlining the oil and gas permitting process in the next continuing resolution. Now that House progressives are blocking the inclusion of permitting reform in the CR, Manchin is lashing out at GOP leaders for "revenge politics," blaming them for failing to deliver Republican votes to uphold the promise Schumer made to obtain Manchin's vote for a budget-busting tax and spending bill


Too bad, Senator Sell-out.

The only way Manchin will not be the senator is if he decides not to run. The people of WV believe any bs he puts forth and think he has changed. He’s done this constantly and gets away with it. Hope I’m wrong but history is on my side.

From on the ground in West Virginia--Joe was reelected by 49.6% in a 3-way contest. Those voting against him will continue that tradition, and every democrat I have spoken to seems committed to voting against him in 2024 because they understand the damage he did to the economy by voting the way Schumer told him to do. Weasel Joe has got to go--with respect to all natural weasels.

Exactly WHY would the Republicans be expected to bail out his sorry rear end? As Grandma always said, He made his Bed, now he has to lay in it"! I would bet he knows he's in big trouble in WV! Maybe he will try to jump to the Republican side to save himself. I'm not sure the Republicans would take him!!

If Manchin cut a deal with his fellow Rats and they're now reneging, that's on them. The GOP owes him nothing, and the fact that he's now trying to turn the blame on the GOP just goes to show what a piece of trash he really is.

Oh h*ll no, Manchin, you and Schumer own this, it is not the fault of Republicans, especially when members of your own party wrote that nice letter to Pelosi saying they would not support your little deal with Schumer. Schumer had no intentions of honoring whatever the h*ll he told you. You caved, you betrayed, and now YOU will suffer the consequences. Republicans will committ political suicide if they bail your butt out. Screw you, screw Schumer and most of all screw Biden.

Seems I'd have the deal done before I signed on the bottom line. Manchin's only "negotiating" leverage would have been to join the Republican caucus and turn the Senate 51-49 Republican. His failure to vote against either phony impeachment told me where his loyalties lie. And they're the same guys who hosed him.

He got played and now needs to find someone to blame. It was interesting now the Progressive Democrats were against all of the "goodies" Manchin "secured" from the very moment he cast his vote to move forward with the CR. And, sadly the suckers are the American people who now have been force-fed the Green New Deal under cover of the CR and what they still call and "emergency". That train is now rolling down the tracks, folks.

Twitter has certainly been an interesting place since Elon Musk’s acquisition of the company. Verification has become a paid service, causing widespread panic among the privileged who want to keep their status symbol exclusive. Then there’s been the fact that the social media site now allows a wide range of opinions that were formerly disallowed, which has the left, in general, losing its mind. But the most entertaining aspect of Twitter hasn’t been happening on the platform itself. Instead, it’s been happening among the company’s employee base.

On Tuesday, Texas governor Greg Abbott announced that he had invoked the Invasion Clauses of both the state and federal Constitutions in an attempt to put an end to Biden's border crisis. In a statement posted to Twitter, Abbott explained that by treating the flow of illegal migration as an "invasion," Texas would be able to tackle the problem with unprecedented vigor. "I invoked the Invasion Clauses of the US & Texas Constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion," Abbott stated, adding that he's "using that constitutional authority, & other authorization & Executive Orders to keep our state & country safe."

A New York Times poll revealed that the Democratic candidate was leading the Republican candidate, 44 to 38. Another New York Times poll, taken days before the election, showed the candidates were running about even nationally. The results were horribly wrong. For New York voters, the Republican candidate won 47 to 44. Nationally, the candidates were far from even. The Republican defeated the Democrat 51 to 41. This wrong prediction was from 1980 and the presidential election between President Jimmy Carter and then-Republican nominee Ronald Reagan, and it's indicative of the unreliability of polling.

It’s no secret that government agencies give the Left more of a leash than the Right. Headline-grabbing stories over the past few years have exposed the overt political biases of agencies such as the FBI and the Justice Department. But underreported is a much larger story of the same ideological malfeasance in the nonprofit sector, a topic less sexy than corruption in the intelligence agencies, but arguably more important due to the growth of political activism via charities. In fact, what the IRS isn’t doing in the nonprofit (or “public charity”) sector will affect the midterm elections far more than any FBI raid ever could.

Old Joe Biden, the ostensible president of the United States, on Wednesday held one of his Potemkin press conferences before the gathering of sycophants and propagandists known as the White House press corps. When a reporter said that Trump’s movement was “still very strong,” Biden laughed derisively and said, “Oh yeah?” He added, “Well, we just have to demonstrate that he will not take power by — if we — if he does run. I’m making sure he, under legitimate efforts of our Constitution, does not become the next President again.” How can he make sure of that? He didn’t say, and of course the sycophants didn’t ask.

I intend to sit down with Mitch McConnell and express that.”
