Maserati Manchin's next grift

Original Article

Posted By: Judy W., 1/25/2023 8:05:48 AM

I am a West Virginian. I am not now nor have I ever been a supporter of Joe Manchin. Over the decades, I did not vote for him for secretary of state, governor or senator. But I must salute his unapologetic abuse of campaign finance laws. He is living large on other people’s money. He owns a yacht and a Maserati, and racked up $1 million in fine-dining bills as he lives the lifestyle of the rich and famous — and he just may run for president next year. That’s where the big money is. Just ask Democrat Martin O'Malley. (Snip) Presidential elections are now a multi-billion-dollar industry.

Comments:

Surber covers a lot of grifters who made big money as losing candidates, including Stacey Abrams, John Edwards, and far back to Harold Stassen. Also would-be grifters like Liz Cheney. It's entertaining and infuriating.

What is with very wealthy women who either inherited their wealth or married into it (Bunny Mellon, the ex-wife of Bezos and Bill Gates, etc) who just write large checks for all these lefties?

There is something fundamentally wrong with a system that allows you to run for office, lose and keep the money donated for your campaign!

Manchin didn't even get one of the cool performance Maseratis, he bought the family sedan. He showed equal class when he sold out his entire state for personal gain. I hope he has a good security detail when those around him begin losing jobs and getting hungry. If these grifters were smart they would drive Fords and live in ranch houses but if they were smart instead of greedy they would be good leaders. Like Liz Cheney, in his own mind, he is loved by everybody.

An easy way to make millions by running for president is to put your spouse in charge of advertising. You can pay your spouse an unlimited amount as a percentage of what you spend for advertising, which is commonly where most of the campaign money goes. Just look at Vermont’s communist Bernie.

Pfizer Director Speaks Giddily About Manipulating SARS-CoV-2 12 replies

Watching a Project Veritas undercover sting operation invariably leaves me with mixed feelings. On the one hand, I’m struck with admiration for yet another one of James O’Keefe’s bold strokes against the corrupt empire that now dominates our world. On the other hand, I’m shocked by the disclosure that the Empire is staffed by such moral and intellectual lightweights. Though incredible, it appears that the subject of O’Keefe’s latest sting, Jordon Walker, really is a Pfizer Director of Research & Development Strategic Operations. Here he is giddily talking about deliberately mutating SARS-CoV-2 by means of “directed evolution” in order to keep Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine gravy train going.

The Covid pandemic was a US Department of Defence operation and planned since the Obama administration. - Katherine Watt The Covid 19 vaccines were biochemical biological radiological nuclear weapons, manufactured by a consortium of criminals who cannot be held to account. - Sasha Latypova There is a new culture rising under the censors and it will take over all institutions in the next ten or twenty years.

Trump or DeSantis? It doesn't matter. Phantom voters will decide 2024. The phantoms are not voting for either. Those working deep in swing state voter rolls can tell you with 100% certainty that unless Trump or DeSantis wins with a 5%-to-18% margin in swing states, they will lose every one. Let's do some electioneering math. To win the presidency, about a dozen swing states matter — we all know who they are. Some will add Georgia, Virginia, and Arizona, some not. President Trump won in 2016 because he caught the leftists off guard. Perhaps even Trump was surprised on Election Night — the surprise was so complete!

Maintain your future orientation, and attacks bounce off. Returning to Sam Harris vs. Bret Weinstein, how and why does someone like Weinstein stand up to the daily drumbeat of you’re-literally-murdering-grandma character assassination? I’m confident I know the answer without asking, because I’ve been in a comparable position. Harris suggests it with his view that Weinstein was right but isn’t right, because he was right when it was wrong to be right, which is wrong.

Liberal billionaire George Soros is tied to some of the most influential media figures in the United States and abroad through cash he provides to groups affiliated with them, according to a new study conducted by MRC Business. (Snip) The study found at least 54 media figures linked to Soros’ cash, with Bloomberg News co-founder Matthew Winkler and CNN’s Christiane Amanpour also among them. "The others encompass reporters, anchors, columnists, editors, news executives and journalists linked to organizations like ABC, CBS, NPR, Bloomberg News, Reuters, The New York Times and a host of additional outlets," Vazquez and Schneider wrote.
What the Classified Scandal Shows About
Biden’s Foreign Connections

Biden’s misappropriated classified documents problem keeps getting worse with a second tranche of documents being discovered at another location. It is now clear that the first set of classified documents found at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement was not an isolated incident. Despite that, the FBI and National Archives are continuing to take a casual approach to the case. There have been no raids of Biden facilities. And won’t be. But beyond the misappropriation of classified documents, a violation of the Espionage Act, the discovery renews old questions about the foreign connections of Joe Biden and his family.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Thursday defended his decision to keep California Democrats Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff off the House Intelligence Committee – arguing that Schiff "openly lied" about the Russian election interference and a disturbing briefing he received from the FBI on Swalwell. "If you got the briefing I got from the FBI, you wouldn't have Swalwell on any committee," McCarthy said in the press conference after one reporter questioned MCarthy's commitment to allowing Democrats to pick their own committee membership. "And you're going to tell me other Democrats couldn't fill that slot? He cannot get a security clearance in the private sector," McCarthy said. "So would you like

Elon Musk is transforming Twitter from a government censorship bureau into a powerhouse of investigative journalism. The Biden Junta doesn’t like it. Musk’s tweet of “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci” drew a furious reaction from White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who said criticizing Dr. Fauci was “dangerous,” “disgusting” and “divorced from reality.” Musk didn’t think so, and started digging deeper. On December 28, Musk tweeted, “Almost no one seems to realize that the head of bioethics at NIH – the person who is supposed to make sure that Fauci behaves ethically – is his wife.” That would be National Institutes of Health bioethics boss Christine Grady.

Have you seen the “men will literally do X instead of going to therapy” meme? (Snip) Canada’s most famous public intellectual, Jordan Peterson, brought that meme to real life this week when he announced he’d rather never work again than be forced onto the couch. I don’t blame him. The College of Psychologists of Ontario has told Peterson that if he doesn’t go to therapy—sorry, a board-mandated “Coaching Program” with a board-issued therapist—it may revoke his license to practice psychology. What warranted this ultimatum? A few tweets and a podcast. According to Peterson, about “a dozen people” from around the world complained to the college
Mystery of why Roman buildings have survived

The majestic structures of ancient Rome have survived for millennia — a testament to the ingenuity of Roman engineers, who perfected the use of concrete. But how did their construction materials help keep colossal buildings like the Pantheon (which has the world's largest unreinforced dome) and the Colosseum standing for more than 2,000 years? Roman concrete, in many cases, has proven to be longer-lasting than its modern equivalent, which can deteriorate within decades. Now, scientists behind a new study say they have uncovered the mystery ingredient that allowed the Romans to make their construction material so durable and build elaborate structures in challenging places such as docks, sewers and earthquake zones.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) once again took to the airwaves to say Democratic cities who declared themselves to be a sanctuary for illegal immigrants are being stretched thin due to the large number of people crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. New York City has had to open a fifth shelter for recent arrivals from the southern border, which is in addition to using hotels and homeless shelters to house people coming from Latin America and even parts of Asia. (snip) He went on to blame Republicans for blocking "comprehensive immigration policies" that caused the massive influx of illegal crossings.

Russia today warned that Germany's decision to send dozens of modern tanks to Ukraine is 'extremely dangerous' and will 'take the conflict to a new level'. Bringing an end to a bitter row, Chancellor Olaf Scholz finally confirmed today Berlin will send its own German-made Leopard 2 tanks to the front lines and allow Nato allies to deliver some of theirs. Scholz even teased further deliveries of air defence systems, heavy artillery and multiple rocket launchers and says Germany 'intends to expand what we have delivered', a major U-turn on the chancellor's previous reluctance.  Russia branded the move a 'blatant provocation'

Billions of dollars worth of U.S. weapons are on the negotiating table between Russian strongman Vladimir Putin and Afghanistan’s Taliban government, according to at least one insider. Presidentish Joe Biden’s bungled bugout from Afghanistan resulted in a windfall for the new radical Islamic government, including artillery, attack helicopters, and thousands of HUMVEES, machine guns, radios — all left behind as our orderly withdrawal degenerated into a rout. The Department of Defense estimates the total value of the gear Biden left behind at a whopping $7.12 billion, and now Putin is reportedly offering to buy whatever he and the battered Russian Army need.
