On Fox News Sunday with host Bret Bair, Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) dropped a bombshell. The rogue Senator announced he would not cave to the Democrat mob, telling Fox News’ Brett Bair that he is a definite “no” on Joe Biden’s radical Socialist Build Back Better spending bill.
The West Virginia moderate Democrat explained that he’s met with Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and his Democratic colleagues in DC to discuss the “mammoth piece of legislation,” and that after weighing all of his concerns, he “cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation.”
The senator told Fox’s Bret Baier: “This is a mammoth piece of legislation, and I had my reservations from the beginning when I heard about it five-and-a-half months ago.”
Manchin cited inflation as a reason for his decision, as he explained that that the inflation his constituents are facing in West Virginia is “not transitory, it’s real.” Manchin also cited the $29 trillion debt that we’re carrying” and the COVID pandemic as reasons that he “just can’t” vote yes on the bill. “I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there,” Manchin explained.
Manchin said: ‘I just can’t vote yes on this legislation. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I just can’t get there, he said.
“I’ve always said, if I can’t go home and explain it to the people in West Virginia, I can’t vote for it. And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation—I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible, and I can’t get there.”

One of the top bullies in DC, Democrat Squad member Rep. Ayanna Pressley, explained how she has no plans to stop pressuring Senator Manchin, and explained how the White House will continue to “lean on” Joe Manchin.
Rep. @AyannaPressley: "I'm not one to concede defeat quickly. I remain focused on keeping the pressure up on Senator Manchin – the White House using the full weight of this presidency to lean on this senator to show solidarity with his Democratic party." https://t.co/ySPjJYmnrZ pic.twitter.com/3B1qN1KZaS

Today, after taking a brutal beating from the dishonest corporate media and the members of his own party, Senator Manchin spoke out. Here is a portion of his comments where he talks about the Democrat mob tactics used against him to threaten him into voting for Biden’s Build Back Better bill:
“I’m not blaming anybody. I knew where they were. And I knew what they could and could not do. They just never realized it because they figured, ‘Surely to God, we can move one person—surely we can badger and beat one person up. Surely we can get enough protesters to make that person uncomfortable enough and they’ll just say ‘Okay, I’ll vote for anything and just quit.’ Well, guess what? I’m from West Virginia…I’m not where they’re from, and they can just beat the living crap out of people and think they’ll be submissive—period!”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott reminded everyone of how former Senator John McCain was elevated to saint status by Democrats and by the media when he voted to save Obamacare, but when Sen. Manchin votes no against the most dangerous spending bill in American history, the media and fellow Democrats turn him into the most hated man in America.
Been offline the last few days, so someone’s probably already made this point … but when McCain was the 51st vote “saving” ObamaCare, the media elevated him into sainthood. When Manchin “went maverick,” the media were apoplectic, declaring the Senate a bygone insitution.

Senator Joe Manchin’s comments about the Democrat mob threatening him were likely in response to the numerous attacks by leftist radicals over his refusal to cave on the disastrous Build Back Better spending boondoggle.
On Nov. 5, a group of far-left environmental freaks surrounded Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) as he attempted to leave a DC parking garage where his vehicle was parked. The protesters chanted, “Climate change now!” and “We want to live!” as Manchin blew his horn loudly at the protesters blocking him from leaving the garage.

The threatening behavior began as Manchin attempted to walk to the garage from his DC houseboat, where the Senator from West Virginia lives when he’s working in the Swamp.

This comes after Manchin once again declines @POTUS’ Build Back Better Act, holding hostage significant investments in climate. pic.twitter.com/oT82sXiFZw

Rumors have been swirling around today about Manchin leaving the Democrat Party and becoming an Independent. Who could blame the guy—and why would anyone in their right mind want to be associated with such an evil group of awful people who would use threats against members of their own party who don’t cave to their demands?
Pray for the safety of this brave Democrat Senator who is actually voting on behalf of his constituents who sent him to DC to represent them. He has more courage than many of the elected Republicans in the DC Swamp who talk a good game but then go along with the Democrat mob once they’re elected over the fear of being brutalized and publicly flogged by them
