Manchin: WH Staff Are ‘Real Reason’ For His Decision Against Spending Bill

Published

on

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) said he decided against President Biden’s Build Back Better Act because White House staff drove him to his “wit’s end.”

“It is not the president. This is staff,” Manchin said in a local radio interview. “And they drove some things, and they put some things out, that was absolutely inexcusable. They know what it is.”

“I’m always willing to work and listen to try. I just got to the wit’s end and they know the real reasons what happened,” he continued.

Over the weekend, Manchin had publicly announced during a Fox News interview that he would be voting “no” on the “mammoth piece of legislation” and that he had “reservations” on the bill since he had first heard about it “five and a half months ago.”

In response to Manchin’s announcement, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki released a lengthy statement claiming that Manchin’s comments were “at odds with his discussions this week with the President, with White House staff, and with his own public utterances. Weeks ago, Senator Manchin committed to the President, at his home in Wilmington, to support the Build Back Better framework that the President then subsequently announced. Senator Manchin pledged repeatedly to negotiate on finalizing that framework ‘in good faith.’”

Psaki additionally claimed that “If [Manchin’s] comments on FOX and written statement indicate an end to that effort, they represent a sudden and inexplicable reversal in his position and a breach of his commitments to the President and the Senator’s colleagues.”

In response to Psaki’s statement, Manchin explained that Democrats thought they could bully him into supporting the bill because he is just one person.

“They figured surely to God we can move one person. We surely can badger and beat one person up. Surely we can get enough protesters to make that person uncomfortable enough that they’ll just say, ‘OK I’ll vote for anything,’” he said. “Well, guess what? I’m from West Virginia. I’m not from where they’re from and they can just beat the living crap out of people and think they’ll be submissive, period.”

    Manchin is a true ‘statesman’ . . . One that RINOS should take notice of.

    At least one DC insider thinks that Manchin will put forth a revised $1.8 trillion ‘unfrastructure” bill after talking to Brandon last night. The Dems have a $2.2 trillion tax increase bill pending ….their idea of how to raise funds to pay for something they claim will cost zero.

    Correction: That $2.2 trillion tax increase bill pending might be 2.9 trillion.

    Dear Senator Manchin –
    You quite possibly will go down in history as the one public servant who stood strong in the face of tremendous adversity and scorn to save our country from total devastation of irrevocable debt and inflation like the United States of America has ever, ever experienced! You are a true hero, sir. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! And, we are all still praying for your strength and resolve to stay the Course … Keep the faith in your principles and the rule of law that sets this blessed country apart from any civilization to grace planet earth. God Bless You and keep you and the ones who you serve and love.

    “Manchin: WH Staff Are ‘Real Reason’ For His Decision Against Spending Bill’

    That’s not good news. I though he had other legitimate reasons for saying no to this bill, then to see that his big reason for saying no was because of the white house staff is not very encouraging.

United States Sees Highest Murder Rate in 25 Years

Published

Crime has been spiking at an aberrant rate, hitting the highest murder rate in 25 years. Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis are among the large liberal cities shattering records for 2021 murder reports.

Data analyst Jeff Asher examined FBI data, reported by the New York Times, which shows the 2021 murder rate was estimated to be 6.9 murders per 100,000 people. That is a mere .5 percent lower than the 1997 murder rate of 7.4

Rising crime rates have prompted policy makers to focus on the increasing mental health and homeless crises sweeping the nation. Some say that is not helpful for a full and comprehensive approach.

Former New York Police Department Commissioner Howard Safir said there is more to be looked at such as “cancel culture and wok mentality that assumes the police are racist and brutal.”

Not only that, liberal policy makers have been incredibly soft on crime, as well as unsupportive of law enforcement. “If crimes continue to be committed in large numbers, and police continue not to have the backing of politicians and the public, then they’re not going to do their job the way they did when I was commissioner” Safir told Fox News Digital on Tuesday.

The murder of 24-year-old Brianna Kupfer in broad daylight as she worked at a luxury furniture store in Los Angeles last week points to a huge failure in our justice system. The young UCLA student was knifed to death by a homeless man, Shawn Laval Smith, who not only has a lengthy rap sheet from across the country, but “was currently free on a $1,000 bond from a misdemeanor arrest in Los Angeles County in October, 2020, sheriff’s records show” reports the Daily mail.

Smith has also been arrested and charged with violent crimes in at least three states. He was also free on a $50,000 bond from Charleston, South Carolina, after allegedly firing a weapon toward an occupied vehicle in 2019.

Murders in Los Angeles last year reached 397, the highest it’s been in 15 years. The NYPD reported its highest number of murders in ten years, with 488.
