Joe Manchin's Humiliation Is Complete
After Deal Falls Through

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 9/28/2022 12:36:34 AM

Sen. Joe Manchin’s humiliation was brought to completion on Tuesday after his Democrat-negotiated permitting reform deal officially fell through. Per RedState’s previous reporting, Manchin stabbed Republicans in the back during the summer, waiting until the CHIPS Act passed before doing an about-face on a big-spending reconciliation bill full of “climate change” payoffs. The West Virginia senator had supposedly struck a deal whereby he would pass the falsely named Inflation Reduction Act in exchange for Democrat support for permitting reform for oil and gas projects.

How do these fools get elected to high office? They are incredibly stupid and tell lies to keep themselves in the government trough. They also accept bribes, er, campaign contributions. We struggle with inflation, senators don't.

So he'll retire with a comfortable pension and many lifetime taxpayer-provided perks, pick up some hefty fees for speaking engagements and of course the book deals and maybe a plum professorship or opinionator at CNN. Yup. Humiliating.

This is a CRITICAL lesson to voters. NEVER vote for a dem. Dems, as a party, do BAD policy. Members of the dem party are pressured to vote in lockstep with their party to carry out BAD policy. Every voter voting for a dem is voting for BAD policy. It is meaningless to debate the issues. No one issue is worth all the BAD policies that dems drag along with them. Do NOT vote for dems, EVER.

And yet, Joe was on TV the past few days blaming Republicans for this going down in flames. He said if ONLY Republicans would put their "Politics" aside and vote for something that will be good for the country! I couldn't believe my ears! WHY did he vote with the Democrats for something that now the whole country will be paying for? Climate Change got most of the money Manchin voted for. Does he think HIS voters in WV care one hoot about Climate Change? Nope! Joe is reaping what he sowed! Kind of like "You made your Bed, now lay in it".

Manchin has been around. He needed cover for his eventual Yea vote. Schumer gave it to him. (Manchin is a made man in UNIPARTY circles.) He can go home to WV and claim he was cheated, duped, and he will remain a Democrat, a reliable Democrat. And WV voters will buy the tale. Poor, Joe...he got screwed. Yeah, sure.

The United States Senate passed a short-term government funding bill on Thursday after over two dozen Republicans crossed party lines to avert a shutdown. In an 72-25 vote, the Senate passed a funding measure meant to keep the government afloat until December 16. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the more than two-month extension would allow lawmakers from both sides of the aisle one last chance at negotiating a year-long budget deal before the new Congress takes office in January. "Let's hope this is the last [stop gap], they do so we get an omnibus [budget] done in December," said Schumer, D-N.Y.

Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Iowa, and South Carolina joined together to file a lawsuit against the Biden administration on Thursday in an attempt to stop the president’s announced student loan-forgiveness program from taking effect. “In addition to being economically unwise and downright unfair, the Biden Administration’s Mass Debt Cancellation is yet another example in a long line of unlawful regulatory actions,” argued the plaintiffs in their filing. The administration has said that it will wipe out up to $10,000 in loans for borrowers making under $125,000 per year, and up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients who meet that criteria.

U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris amply illustrated this Thursday when she ended her four-day trip to Asia with a journey to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) dividing the Korean Peninsula. During the stop she confused onlooks by asserting the United States has a “strong alliance” with “the Republic of North Korea.” “It is an alliance that is strong and enduring,” she added, intending to refer to the Republic of Korea, which is South Korea’s official name.

We’ve been writing about Hurricane Ian bearing down on Florida and now we’re seeing some videos of how bad it’s getting down there. As we reported earlier, a camera from The Weather Channel in Ft. Myers, Florida, was completely submerged underwater despite it being positioned six-feet high. That was happening all over the area, as the water from the storm surge flooded in. It’s up to the roofs in some areas of Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach. It reminds me of pictures of tsunamis. Let’s hope that people got out of there because reports are that it’s wild there.

Emergency efforts include everything from rescue and recovery of victims, to restoration of power, to distribution of needed supplies, to rebuilding cities affected by the storm. Hurricane Ian, a massive Category 4 storm, made landfall in Florida on Wednesday afternoon, but the worst may be yet to come with storm surges, massive power outages that could last for days, and major rainfall expected. During a press conference on Wednesday evening, Gov. Ron DeSantis warned that Floridians are still “in a very hazardous situation.” But he assured residents that the state

The NY Times published this report today. The call intercepts in question aren’t recent but come from back in March. The New York Times has exclusively obtained recordings of thousands of calls that were made throughout March and intercepted by Ukrainian law enforcement agencies from this pivotal location. Reporters verified the authenticity of these calls by cross-referencing the Russian phone numbers with messaging apps and social media profiles to identify soldiers and family members. The Times spent almost two months translating the recordings, which have been edited for clarity and length.

And that is really really bad news for Democrats. You may have noticed that Democrats don’t want to talk about anything besides abortion. Here in Minnesota it is what every liberal political ad is about.

If Democrats could pull off an upset in Utah, it would have profound consequences for the control of the Senate — and the rest of the country. Republican senators are growing concerned by colleague Mitt Romney’s refusal to help fellow Utah Republican Mike Lee decisively win his re-election campaign — a posture that could potentially keep their party from gaining a majority in the November elections. Unlike every other Republican senator, the 2012 failed Republican presidential candidate is declining to express a preference in Republican Lee’s re-election effort against Democrat-endorsed Evan McMullin.

Transgender men and nonbinary teenagers who underwent breast removal surgery reported having a better body image afterward, according to a new study. Northwestern Medicine looked at 70 female-body patients between the ages of 13 and 24 who either received “top surgery,” or mastectomies (36 patients), or who received testosterone therapy but didn’t get mastectomies (34 patients). Researchers had patients report about their body image before they began their treatment path and then three months later. The study found that “gender-affirming top surgery is associated with significant improvement in chest dysphoria, gender congruence and body image in transmasculine and nonbinary teens and young adults,” according to a press release
