    I’m the guy who predicted a Trump victory against all odds in the 2016 election. I also predicted a “Trump Miracle” for the economy. Here’s my new prediction: President Trump guaranteed his re-election last week. Liberals must be sick to their stomachs. No matter what they do or say, no matter how hard they try to distract us from the booming economy, the “Trump Miracle” shines through. I was going to write about the Trump administration’s war with California, illegal immigration and liberal politicians serving as “lookouts” for illegal felons. This move is cheered by middle-class Americans sick of being...
  • Manchin: Trump's Right. China's to Blame.

    Last week President Trump announced a new 25 percent tariff on steel imports and a 10 percent hike on aluminum imports. Foreign leaders like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the move "unacceptable" and the European Union threatened to respond to the U.S. with their own tariff. Try it, Trump dared. He'll just add a new tax on European cars.British Prime Minister Theresa May shared her own "deep concerns" with Trump directly in a phone call on Sunday. What he should have done was pursue "multilateral action," May reportedly told the president.At least one person sees where Trump is coming from.Sen....
  • Trump Wants Joe Manchin’s Gun Control, Rejects Steve Scalise’s National Reciprocity Push

    President Donald Trump embraced Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) gun control bill but rejected Rep. Steve Scalise’s (R-LA) push for national reciprocity during a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers Wednesday afternoon. After listening to Sen Chris Murphy (D-CT), Trump looked at toward the end of the table and asked Sens. Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) to detail their gun control bill. The Manchin/Toomey gun control bill is the same universal background check legislation supported by Barack Obama in the wake of the heinous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School. It the very bill that was defeated in the Democrat-controlled...

    A new interview with Mitch McConnell this week showed the first cracks in the wall of his optimism about the midterms. While not going down a path of gloom and doom, he no longer sounds positive of breaking a long-standing trend of the party in power losing ground in such scenarios. He’s not coming out and saying the GOP’s majorities in both chambers are toast, but he seems to think they’ll be losing seats. (The Hill) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says in a new interview that he expects to see GOP majorities in the House and Senate shrink...
  • Inebriated Democrat Asks Intelligence Community to Outline Covert Operations in Public

    02/14/2018 1:03:59 AM PST · by Helicondelta · 17 replies ^ | February 13th, 2018
    It’s doubtful you can find a more succinct example of TDS than a seemingly inebriated Democrat Senator asking the aggregate intelligence apparatus, during a public session of congress, to give specific details of U.S. covert intelligence efforts to thwart Russian, Chinese and North Korean cyber-warfare. As Democrat Senator Joe Manchin professionally restrained himself from laughing, even Democrat Senator Kamala Harris couldn’t avoid the eye-roll. ‘Muh Russia’ is real. Senator Jack Reed (D-RI), ranking member of armed services committee, began his mid-day sluration with a ‘resist-we-much‘ effort to continue the vast White House Russian conspiracy narrative, and slowly morphed into a...

    It’s not easy being the man in the middle. Joe Manchin will be the first one to tell anyone that. “I am trying to hang in there, but it is getting tougher every day,” he told me. “You know why I say it sucks? Because it doesn’t have to suck. It doesn’t have to be an unfriendly, hostile work environment. The reason I say hostile is the way things are set up on both the Republican and Democrat side, you are supposed to come to work every day and work against the person on the other end,” he added, referring...
  • Joe Manchin's world of hurt following SOTU (He's ideologically closer to Mitch McConnell)

    American Thinker ^ | 02/01/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    I can’t understand why Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia remains a Democrat. Ideologically, he is far closer to Mitch McConnell or even Ted Cruz than he is to the Schumer-Pelosi Democrats.  His constituents in the Mountaineer State (“Mountaineer” is the polite word for “Hillbilly”) gave President Trump overwhelming support in 2016, and remain loyal to him.  When it doesn’t matter to the outcome, he can break with the Dems to support the GOP in Senate votes. But when push comes to shove, he is a Party Man. During the State of the Union Address, he visibly surrendered to...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those words) gave a wonderful State of the Union Address Tuesday night. The speech was filled with soaring rhetoric about American unity, American greatness and America’s renewed place of leadership in the world. So naturally the Democrats hated it. The speech talked about the creation of 2.4 million new jobs since Trump took office, record low unemployment and the booming stock market. So naturally the Democrats hated it. The speech talked about our flag and what it...

    West Virginia's Sen. Joe Manchin (D.) criticized House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) after being shown a clip of her characterizing President Donald Trump's immigration plan as a way to "Make America White Again." CNN's "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper used the Pelosi clip to start a discussion on immigration. "Let me just say what I said last night: that plan is a campaign to make America white again," Pelosi said. "You know what, we don't need that type of rhetoric on either side, from Nancy, Paul Ryan or anybody else," Manchin said. Manchin proceeded to say...

    “Let me just say what I said last night: that plan is a campaign to make America white again." That was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's deranged analysis of President Donald Trump's new DACA proposal. Jake Tapper played the video and asked West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin (D) for his reaction to Pelosi's wild statement on today's State of the Union on CNN.

    Though federal employees won’t get a paycheck during the governmment shutdown, members of Congress will — unless they specify otherwise. Ten Democratic senators on Friday introduced a bill that would withhold pay for members of Congress during the government shutdown. The legislation comes from Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), along with Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Ranking Member Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Bob Casey (D-Pa.), Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.), Gary Peters (D-Mich.), Tina Smith (D-Minn.), Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.). “It’s wrong that members of Congress would still get paid in...

    Of course it will, Joe.  More than 80 percent of Americans will get a tax cut next year under the new law, with nearly as many taxpayers enjoying relief through at least 2026 (and very likely beyond).  Of the plan's tiny handful of 'losers' (less than five percent), most are high-income earners living in high-tax states who itemize their deductions -- as opposed to taking the now-doubled standard deduction, as 70 percent of filers currently do (a number that will grow).  It...doesn't sound like many West Virginians fit that profile.  Manchin knew all of this, of course, but he voted...

    At the Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), the darling of the progressive Left, was blunt and straightforward in her vision of the party. They’re in a rut because they’re not left wing enough and further left is where they should go. Ever since the 2016 primaries, the Warren/Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) wing of the party has become more vocal, more active, and completely blinded with rage over Donald Trump’s 2016 win. Many are saying the moderate, centrist path that kept Bill Clinton in the White House for two terms is over, and that Jon Ossoff, who...

    Senators Joe Manchin and Heidi Heitkamp on Thursday became the first Democrats to support the confirmation of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, giving Republicans two of eight Democratic votes needed to avoid a nasty fight on the U.S. Senate floor next week. Both West Virginia's Manchin and North Dakota's Heitkamp are up for re-election next year in states that voted for Trump in the 2016 presidential election. "I hold no illusions that I will agree with every decision Judge Gorsuch may issue in the future, but I have not found any reasons why this jurist should not...

On Thursday dozens of activists plan to deliver 225,000 petitions to Schumer's office, asking the minority leader to kick the "Trump-apologist Joe Manchin from Senate Democratic Leadership."

    Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo on Wednesday that he looks forward to meeting with President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, and has no intention of filibustering him with fellow Democrats. Manchin began the interview by scolding Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and other Republican senators for refusing to allow a vote on former President Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland last year. While Manchin acknowledged that Republicans probably had enough votes to block Garland, he said that they should have at least met with Garland and allowed a vote. Manchin then...

    Did Joe Manchin just open the door for Republicans to invoke the nuclear option if necessary to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court? In appearances on CNN and MSNBC this morning, Dem Senator Manchin blasted his fellow Dems for having invoked the nuclear option in the first place. Said Manchin on Morning Joe: “I’ve been opposed to the nuclear option. I thought Harry Reid was dead wrong when he did it. I voted against that. My dear beloved senator, prior to my coming here, was Robert C. Byrd and he would be rolling over in his grave knowing what...

    A group of 25 environmental activists stormed West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin’s office Tuesday morning, demanding he vote against President-elect Donald Trump’s picks for key administration posts. Activists carried a sign that read, “Democrats: You’re not climate deniers. Don’t vote like them.” Activists are specifically urging Manchin, a pro-coal Democrat, to vote against the confirmation of former Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson as secretary of state and Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator.
