Senator Manchin’s approval rating back home sinks
I don’t know what was going through West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin’s mind when he broke his vow to his constituents and signed on to the trillion-dollar “Inflation Reduction Act,” a bill so comically misnamed that even the Democrats’ lapdog media outlets couldn’t bring themselves to mouth it. It may have included a $350 billion or so slush fund to enrich the Dems’ “green” cronies, but it’s already creating CO2 by burning Manchin’s political career to the ground.
Manchin isn’t up for reelection until 2024, but a new Triton poll matched him up against three possible Republican challengers. The one Democrat who used to seem unbeatable in West Virginia is now losing to all three of them. Current Governor Jim Justice would beat Manchin by 15 points (47-32%); Patrick Morrisey, who lost to Manchin by 3 points the last time around, now leads him by 14 (50-36%); and even the lesser-known Alex Mooney leads Manchin 45-38%
I hope that whatever Manchin got for selling out his principles and his constituents, it was worth it to him. Maybe he thinks his new friends in the Democrat Party will express their gratitude by offering him a cushy post-Congress job. I have a feeling both he and Liz Cheney will soon discover that the Democratic leadership doesn’t waste payoffs on people who have outlived their usefulness.
Laugh of the Day
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is getting razzed for saying that Russia is weaponizing energy by shutting down the “Nordstrom” pipeline.
I think she meant the Nord Stream pipeline, although it would also be upsetting if they shut down the pipeline of stylish yet semi-affordable designer activewear.
What it means to be a conservative in 2022
Latest from Kurt Schlichter on what it means to be a conservative in 2022, and how it’s not what a lot of people are trying to make us believe it means.
Things to remember when you’re voting
Here’s yet another example of the kind of wildly inappropriate leftist indoctrination that’s being forced on your kids without your knowledge or consent. A teacher at San Juan Hills High School in Capistrano, repeatedly boasted on TikTok about the “queer library” of over 100 books she’s kept in her classroom for students to read for five years, some of them containing sex imagery and information on orgies, sex parties and BDSM.
Warning: even though the writers of that article did their best to self-censor, even the most discrete descriptions of these books are quite graphic. There’s a reason why such books are branded “Adults Only.” That should be your first clue that they don’t belong in a school classroom.
News they tried to slip past you
Even as the Biden White House claims it’s authorized lots of new oil leases so it can blame the oil industry for high gas prices, it’s actually made it much more difficult to search for and produce more domestic oil. And on Tuesday, Biden quietly signed an order reversing yet another Trump policy that helped make America energy-independent by stopping drilling that had already been authorized under 113 permits in three Western states.
When the media tries to gaslight you by praising Biden for bringing down gas prices remember this:
1. They’re still over a dollar a gallon higher than they were when he took office.
2. Thanks to his crazy, war-on-domestic-oil policies, they aren’t likely to keep dropping much longer. They’re only lower now because he made gas so expensive people were forced to stop driving, which reduced demand. But it’s about as low as it can go without the Dems finally achieving their ultimate dream of forcing us all to give up our cars entirely.
I JUST WANTED TO SAY:
