"Manchin is not a zero -- and this is a good thing. Despite the misalignment of the Senate politically he in fact is acting in the best interest, as he sees it, of the people of his State. That's his job"

Market Ticker:

 

Manchin and Schumer cut a deal on BBB back in the summer months.  They both negotiated and signed it.  It had several limitations and many of them were intended to, and would have, protected Manchin's constituents from having their jobs raped away by the "green" provisions in the legislation.

Schumer, the Majority Leader of the Senate, agreed to these terms in writing.

He then violated essentially all of them with what he "agreed" to take in the form of BBB from the House.  And he didn't shave the edges of the term sheet either; he just plain balled it up and used it to wipe his ass.

Then, having done this openly and notoriously, he and Biden decided that they'll try to politically threaten Manchin into voting for it anyway, and went so far as to at least tacitly if not openly advocate for Democrat activists harassing Manchin and his family at home.

A politician is just a person (despite many of them believing they're Christ incarnate) and one of the risks of being a politician is always having the other party activists show up and exercise their First Amendment rights -- wherever you may be.  Cross onto your property and invade it, no, but picket outside in what is a public place?  You bet.  Oh sure, some people complain about this but that's crap; nobody has a right to privacy in a public place, nor to force others to shut up.

But when your own party stabs you in the back intentionally after cutting a deal with you that's a damned clear declaration that your original "negotiation" with them was always in bad faith from their side of the table.  Once someone does that, even once, there's nothing more to discuss in terms of decorum, "party unity" or trust until and unless every person involved that deceit is gone.

Ronald Reagan famously got rolled by Tip in exactly this way and stupidly did not shove it up his ass -- which he could have done.  It is why, in my opinion, the man's "domestic" achievements were all frauds.  Yes, I give him credit for an excellent game of poker with the Soviets and the successful de-escalation of decades of hostility without either of us nuking the other, but when it comes to actually making deals and keeping the other side to them on a domestic basis the man was a zero.

Well, Manchin is not a zero -- and this is a good thing.  Despite the misalignment of the Senate politically he in fact is acting in the best interest, as he sees it, of the people of his State.  That's his job.  And that Schumer believed he could do what politicians do all the time -- that is, lie, cheat and screw people and get away with it is on Schumer -- not Manchin.

What Mr. Voris fails to admit is that it is the institution of the conciliar fake church that is the biggest enemy of the Faith.

Might Biden be a Liar & Predator like McCarrick?

September 15, 2020   Everyone knows that sexual predator ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick is a liar. His whole life was a lie of betrayal of the most sacred vows he took and the violation of the moral tenets of the Catholic faith which he desecrated. Most people don't realize that part of this desecration of lies included lying for "gravely sinful" Democrats like Joe Biden. McCarrick protected Biden when then head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (later to be Pope Benedict XVI) wrote that bishops were not to admit to Communion politicians like "gravely sinful" Biden who supports the killing of unborn babies. McCarrick lied for politicians like Biden by ignoring the important parts of the Ratzinger letter and told bishops not to ignore the Catholic Church law.  Last year, Fr. Robert Morey denied Holy Communion to the “gravely sinful” Biden following a "2004 decree signed jointly by the bishops of

The Biben Lying Machine: "Joe , do you know what else is a Sin besides Killing Babies? Lying... "

October 09, 2020   It appears that Joe Biden was even a lying machine in 2008 according to the post " Media Ignores Biden Repeatedly Lies During 'Meet the Press' Interview" on the Weasel Zippers website: Joe Biden Repeatedly Lies During "Meet the Press" Interview, Claims he Doesn't Support Taxpayer Funded Abortions.....   Joe, do you know what else is a sin besides killing babies? Lying... ... Joe Biden repeatedly made the claim in a Sunday interview on the NBC political show "Meet the Press" that he opposes taxpayer funding of abortions. However, a look at his voting record over the years reveals numerous instances where Barack Obama's pro-abortion running mate did exactly that. "I don't support public, public funding. I don't, because that flips the burden. That's then telling me I have to accept a different view," he said on the program. As recently as February, Biden voted against an amendmen
