Dem Lawmakers Self-Destruct on Gun Control, on Verge of Handing Conservatives Huge Victory

.....The New York Democrat’s plan to take up this legislation in the Senate, however, was thwarted last week after three key senators spoke out against it: Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Jon Tester of Montana and Republican Susan Collins of Maine.

The Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski reported Monday that he had spoken with several key Senate aides who agreed that the restrictions in the bill were “dead on arrival” in the Senate.....

Hopefully the bribery the Democratic leadership is attempting, to get Manchin to sell his vote to be able to receive his wife's proposed high-paying job, won't succeed...

Biden nominates swing vote Sen. Joe Manchin's wife for $160K federal job

President Biden intends to appoint the wife of the Senate’s top swing vote, West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin III, to a plum federal position that pays upwards of $160,000 annually. The White House announced on Friday it would nominate Gayle Connelly Manchin, a former president of the West Virginia state board of education, to serve as federal co-chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission.

The organization is responsible for spurring economic development and investment in the 13 states that make up the region of Appalachia — which spans from northern Mississippi to Pennsylvania.

If confirmed by the Senate, Mrs. Manchin is slated to replace Tim Thomas, a former staffer for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. The role comes with a salary of approximately $163,000 annually, according to a federal pay database.

Mrs. Manchin’s nomination comes as her husband has become a vital political player in Washington, D.C.

Despite Democrats controlling both Congress and the White House, the party’s hold on the Senate is tenuous at best. The upper chamber is split 50-50 between both parties, with Democrats only holding the majority thanks to the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Kamala Harris.

Given the narrow margin, Mr. Manchin, a self-described “moderate to conservative Democrat,” holds immense sway over whether the Biden administration’s agenda can become law. The senator’s influence was felt earlier this month when he delayed passage of the coronavirus relief package due to issues surrounding unemployment benefits.

Mr. Manchin has also been a key figure in a renewed push to abolish the Senate filibuster. The rule, which requires a three-fifths Senate vote — usually 60 votes — to end debate on a piece of legislation, had become a point of internal division for Democrats.

Swinestiens AWB "might" get 47 votes in the Senate, with Arizona and Georgia having gun grabbers in the Senate now plus Romney being a POS on gun rights. I don't trust that bitch from Alaska either
