Manchin Clears Air on IRS Surveillance

Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) has driven the nail in the coffin for the Democrats’ dreams to snoop on bank accounts.

According to Fox Business:

Sen. Joe Manchin Tuesday said Democrats‘ proposal for banks to report the inflows and outflows of many bank accounts to the IRS is “screwed up” and won’t be in the final bill, despite what many Democrats in Congress had hoped.

“I said, ‘Do you understand how messed up that is to think that Uncle Sam is going to be watching?’” Manchin, D-W.Va., said he told President Biden during their meeting Sunday. “I said, Mr. President, I don’t know what happened. This cannot happen. This is screwed up.”

Manchin made the comments at an event for the Economic Club of Washington, D.C.

Manchin described bewildered Biden staffers who were, “all looking at each other back and forth, ‘Who in the hell did this one?'”

More confusion within the Biden administration.

Wish more democrats would come to their senses and moral values. What Manchin did took courage and wisdom to admit that what the Biden administration is doing is wrong and unconstitutional. Let’s go Brandon.

I have always thought that Manchin was no better than the rest of the DemRats, that he was just a little smarter playing the game of holding out to get a better payout for stabbing Americans in the back. Now I’m starting to believe that the democrat party has crossed the line even in his eyes. Even Manchin knows what the suicide of nation looks like and he is looking at his own party on the path of killing America. Let’s hope he can retain his recently found testicles.

NOTE: Good show Joe! Now it’s your turn America>

RAPE, PILLAGE, PLUNDER; AMERICA YOU’VE BEEN HAD!

NOTE: First, my thanks to President Trump for his role in exposing the entire military/industrial/political/deep state complex and the swamp they employ. Last, my thanks to Little Joe, Crying Chuck, Loony Nancy, and so many others in the swamp. Special thanks to each of you for reinforcing my lessons learned throughout your years in politics. Little Joe do you remember the time we listed you, Billy Clinton, and a whole gaggle of politicians as subjects in that international drug trade investigation? Hint, it was during your first term in the Senate. Why don’t you impress the folks by explaining the term, ‘Green Lining?’ Little Joe you also have my congratulations in that you are one of the three subjects who have gone on to be President of the United States of America!

This article reinforces the confession/lessons learned first presented in 1989 (most presented in 1989, rest added during President Obama’s last two years in office) to the citizens of this old soldier/cop/mercenary’s community while serving as their police chief.

A Soldier/Cop/Mercenary’s Confession/Lessons Learned

* Soldiers (ground combat soldiers, that is) do not fight first and foremost for their country, the flag, motherhood, girls back home, or apple pie! Before all else, soldiers engaged in ground combat fight for their fellow soldiers and their unit. Why? Because in every war/police action/whatever including WWII the strategies and tactics adopted by mostly incompetent/corrupt military and civilian managers (notice I said managers not leaders) were/are designed to maximize the profits of the military/industrial/political complex with little regard for the those personnel charged with employing the same. In short, the American soldier has been/is nothing more than a “mercenary” since 1969 with the creation of the “All Volunteer Army (VOLAR)”.
* The Seven C’s of Leadership according to a survey of 1646 Vietnam era ground combat veterans listed of the order of their importance (according to the vets) are; Candor, Competence, Consistency, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, and Courtesy. The reason the soldiers in the survey chose the word “candor” is because to them candor encompasses both omission and co-mission. To a combat soldier lack of absolute candor, be it co-mission or omission, are equal sins! In short, soldiers expect/demand absolute candor from their leaders before all else. Note: The democrats have proven they are masters of co-mission, while republicans have proven they are masters of omission!
* The American people are the most effectively lied to people in modern times thanks primarily to politicians, bureaucrats, academicians, and the media.
* Arrogance plus ignorance equals stupidity (A + I = S).
* The greatest threats to the American people are the corrupt and/or incompetent politicians/bureaucrats/academicians found at every level of government/academia, and the majority of the American so-called media.
* The American Profession of Arms and our brothers/sisters in the Blue have failed to protect the American people from all of their enemies, both foreign and ‘most especially’ domestic.
* There are only two primary requirements to be a career soldier and/or cop in America. One must be smart enough to do the work and dumb enough to take the job.
* American soldiers and police officers must in addition to mastering all of their professionally mandated tasks learn to accomplish the same with at least one arm tied behind their backs and their vision impaired 50% or more.
* Far too many of the politicians, bureaucrats, academicians, and media types I have encountered during my years as a soldier/cop/mercenary I most kindly refer to as; self-serving, witless, cowards. Note: I originally referred to the aforementioned folks as; “Self-serving, witless, cowardly, pissants!” After retiring to the deep woods I dropped pissants once becoming acquainted with the little guys; in that I learned pissants are not self-serving nor witless, and certainly not cowards!
* After carefully watching the whole of the political class since May of 1960, I can say without reservation that most of the group will sell their souls and our bodies just to remain in power.
* Want to see what the United States of America will look like if the left takes control of the government? Take your pick: New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or the complete packages; California, New York, Illinois, etc, etc, etc…..
* If the so-called Progressive movement continues unchecked a number of able veterans are going to be presented with a challenge/decision. Are the American people worth another drop of our sweat and/or our blood?
* The end goal of the elites and their minions is not (nor ever has been) socialism, communism, or capitalism. The elites of the world have used all manner of ideologies, religions, terrorism, brute force, etc. to drive the masses/peasants/serfs/whatever in one direction. That direction leads to one of the oldest forms of human control ever employed in the history of mankind. That form of human control is Feudalism!

PS All of the lessons learned above (save the last three, which were added during Obama’s last two years in office) and the four mentioned below were written for the prelude of a book titled: “Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America You’ve Been Had!” (After Obama was elected to his second term I added; “And It’s Your Own Damn Fault!”). The book has not been published in that the Department of Defense has denied four requests to publish the same due to classified information they claim is in the book. That so-called classified information primarily deals with the number of politicians and bureaucrats sitting at the federal, state, county, and city levels of government during the Carter years who made the list of subjects in an investigation of the international drug trade and money laundering. Three of those politicians went on to be President of the United States of America. Four of the original lessons learned will remain unpublished in that I do not believe most of the Americans alive today can handle the level of anxiety that might be generated from their exposure. Few Americans can imagine the lengths so many have gone to destroy this nation just since President Eisenhower’s last year in office. I say that because that was the year I joined the army and have stood witness to the destructive policies first initiated by the Kennedy administration with folks like his brother Robert and Robert McNamara (Mac the Knife- soldier’s nickname for the #$%) laying the ground work for administrations that followed! Thus the reason for the two part prayer I said immediately upon learning that President Kennedy had been shot. First I prayed that God would spare him and second that the shooter was not a soldier from my unit nor any other military unit!

Right on, Sen. Manchin! Look at the victory of Youngkin in VA. Perhaps even some of the starry-eyed liberal dreamers are starting to wake up. The Democreeps have shown their true colors. They want our cities to burn in anarchy while the police stand impotently by. They want to sell us out to a world government by taking away our means of self defense, to saddle us with crippling taxes and confiscate petroleum for heating and transportation, all in the name of the ephemeral phantom of global warming. They want to abolish the sovereignty of our own bodies and shroud us in masks forever, by inflating a little virus into the Black Plague of the 21st century. They want subject all of us to Big Brother surveillance. On top of all this, they want to dissolve the biological boundaries between male and female such that boys in skirts can invade the ladies’ rooms and rape our daughters. Do they expect us to stand idly by and cheer them on?
