FLOWER MOUND, TX — October 3, 2021 — President Biden, Speaker Pelosi, and their ruthless gang of leftwing acolytes have refused to compromise one iota on their $3.5 Ttrillion, so-called “Infrastructure” bill. Evidently, they feel as if the 2020 election was a mandate, notwithstanding the fact that it resulted in a 50-50 tie in the Senate and only a very small majority in the House. Sadly, they have abandoned the Constitutional principle that supports the separation of powers. It should be obvious to them that half the country is opposed to their big government proposals. Yet, they behave like tyrants who will use force to get what they want, repudiating any input from the other side of the aisle.

About 150 million Americans, who have been left out of the equation, would also like to have some voice in the future of their country. If it weren’t for Democrat Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, we’d already be facing the end of the republic we know and love.

Senator Manchin, in a courageous Wall Street Journal opinion piece, wrote: “The nation faces an unprecedented array of challenges and will inevitably encounter additional crises in the future. Yet some in Congress have a strange belief there is an infinite supply of money to deal with any current or future crisis, and that spending trillions upon trillions will have no negative consequence for the future. I disagree.

“An overheating economy has imposed a costly “inflation tax” on every middle- and working-class American. At $28.7 trillion and growing, the nation’s debt has reached record levels. Over the past 18 months, we’ve spent more than $5 trillion responding to the coronavirus pandemic. Now Democratic congressional leaders propose to pass the largest single spending bill in history with no regard to rising inflation, crippling debt or the inevitability of future crises. Ignoring the fiscal consequences of our policy choices will create a disastrous future for the next generation of Americans.”

In typical hysterical fashion, radical leftist Rolling Stone Mag editor Jeff Goodell, remonstrating against the Senator, put it this way, “West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin just cooked the planet. I don’t mean that in a metaphorical sense. I mean that literally. Unless Manchin changes his negotiating position dramatically in the near future, he will be remembered as the man who, when the moment of decision came, chose to condemn virtually every living creature on Earth to a hellish future of suffering, hardship, and death.”

Such frenzied hyperbole is what we always get from those who will say or do anything to get their way. Goodell, in classic gutter talk style went on to say “Manchin is f***ing it all up!”  In other words, if a US Senator has an opinion that differs from this trash-mouthed editor, he risks losing his membership in the leftwing cadre of America-haters.

Furthermore, the editor makes it clear that the monstrous bill has little to do with infrastructure, it is all about catering to the greedy gang of big government environmentalists who will spend us into bankruptcy in order to make us surrender to their cataclysmic prognostications. It doesn’t matter to them that they’ve been wrong numerous times with their disastrous “end of the world” threats. It doesn’t matter that they’ve changed their positions from “global cooling” to “global warming” in about a decade, ultimately coming up with the all-inclusive “climate change” mantra to cover all bases. It doesn’t matter that their prediction of Armageddon after a number of years persists in proving them wrong. They simply make another prediction and continue to hammer away at skeptics.

All of the above illustrates that we are in the middle of an epic battle for the future of the most prosperous and powerful country in the history of the world, against an enemy within, who wants to “fundamentally” change our country into an oligarchic utopia in which they reign supreme. This is a test of the American spirit! We either fight to continue our way of life, or we surrender to those who have been chipping away at our freedoms for more than a generation. Manchin has been more outspoken than his colleague, Sinema, but each one has a vote that can stop this imminent train wreck. We can only hope they stay strong for the country that so many have fought and died for.

  1. apparently one of the posters is a conspiracy theory advocate…poor Rudy Giuliani..all he did was to appear before a federal judge as an officer of the court…and lied…that’s all..but we shouldn’t expect an attorney of that magnitude to tell the truth….or Sidney Powell…or John Eastman who prepared a memo suggesting how Donald Trump could successful thwart the constitutional counting of electoral votes..All you have to do to assess what threatens our democracy is to watch the rantings of Richard Spencer of unite the right fame…marching to make the US free of black and brown folks…also of Jews..why always “the jews” 2% of the US population and yet these assholes are marching to the tune of “jews shall not replace us” to which I respond Who the hell would want to…Let me remind the poster that parents have an absolute right to participate in their childrens education..they do not have the right to burn books..which is exactly what your right wing friends are doing throughout red states…kind of like the 1930’s all over again…As for Donald Trump he has run a criminal enterprise all his adult life Running for public office was the last thing he should have done..As his Empire turns to dreck you can be sure that he and his family will be held to account for their misdeeds

    1. It’s great being a liberal because you can have your own facts and opinions. BLM and ANTIFA was supported by your “side” with your deafening silence as they caused billions in damage to small businesses, countless serious injuries and homicides and attacked the very federal government that you railed about in reference to to one day January 6th and a handful of other RECENT displays of disgusting ignorant alt right lunacy. You’re the side of revolution and when you actually have to deal with the consequences you’re not happy. It’s impossible to have a rational factual conversation with your “side” as you traffic in emotional arguments rather than factual ones as you accuse mainstream conservatives of being Qanon. I still don’t understand who or what Qanon is and I’ve never met a crazy bizarre costumed “white supremacist” and I don’t care to. The economy is imploding and world events are pushing us into WW3 because communists and Islamists sense fear, weakness and incompetence coming from the White House but you’re okay with that as long as the bad Orange man isn’t sending out rude tweets.

  2. Watching Bernie Sanders and the other creepy communists demand trillions more in taxes for a leftist fantasy is absolutely enraging. Combine that with the FBI Best Buy Geek Squad AKA “Famous But Incompetent” going after parents who dare question the Almighty School Boards and their Critical Racist Theology and LGBTQ indoctrination lunacy is going to cause a revolt that these “liberals” are not expecting
    I’ve dealt with the FBI when I was an NYPD detective, if they were any good the WTC would still be standing. They’re harassing what Biden views as “enemies of the state” as they investigate people like Trump and not crimes as they attempt to fit irrelevant facts into a federal indictment for process crimes. I’m no fan of Giuliani but it’s disgusting what they’re doing to him and now the NYPD SBA (Sergeant Benevolent Association) president Ed Mullins. Meanwhile ANTIFA and BLM hold the country hostage as we’re told that invisible “White Supremacists” are the nation’s greatest threat as the Pagans Motorcycle gang is controlling the East coast drug trade as unscreened invaders are invited to cross our southern border. Don’t these white liberals understand that they’re going to be the victims of the very people that hate them as rural 1st amendment America is armed to the teeth and ready for this lunacy.

  3. The tax cuts by Bush and by Trump were the same $3.5 trillion. Where was Manshin then?

    The rich have benefited by the national Institute of health , interstate highways, department of defense the FAA and countless other government programs. Many don’t pay a nickel for these benefits. And yet Republicans whine about free stuff For liberals.
