Dont let your Senator fall for his "superficial" changes!
Recently, we alerted you to the intense pressure that pro-gun Senators are experiencing right now. You guys unleashed a torrent of grassroots activism in response, and we are starting to get great feedback as to where Senators currently stand.
Within the past 48 hours, we have seen clear evidence that West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin and his staff have openly lied about the status of talks with two Republican Senators.
Manchin is claiming that two Senators who originally opposed his background-registration check amendment would flip their votes if superficial changes were made to the text.
But at the request of Gun Owners of America, a prominent constituent spoke with his U.S. Senator in regard to the allegations that Manchin was making about that particular Senator. The constituent reported that his Senator called Manchin's representations a lie.
In a separate case, Manchin claimed to have been in talks with a particular Senate office; but three staffers who would have been part of those talks denied the truth of Manchin's public representations.
Since Manchin had earlier lied about the status of talks with Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn, a standard operating procedure is becoming clear: Manchin is obsessively lying in order to create a false sense of momentum.
Manchin is not the only Bloomberg puppet in the Senate. On Tuesday, California Senator Barbara Boxer filibustered an amendment that would extend firearm owners' protection in national parks to Army Corps of Engineer projects.
But, in a Senate where a senator's word has traditionally been regarded as sacred, the first-full-term West Virginia senator has shown a tremendous willingness to engage in open fraud in order to destroy the Second Amendment.
Manchin is now circulating a list of bribes he is trying to use to buy off Republican votes which GOA predicted would happen. Some of these bribes, like an amendment which would supposedly ameliorate the nasty implications of his amendment for rural states like Alaska, are merely superficial and ineffectual.
Others, like opening the NICS list to local police, are just massive violations of individual rights allowing many names to be inserted into the NICS system without due process.
Is he running ads like on Rush that Rubio (or him) is for a conservative idea of amnesty? I was on Rush just now and that add came up. What a pack of lying, liar, lies. Rubio should be ashamed (if he really thinks he’s a conservative).
Manchin is a TRAITOR to the Constitution and the country. Hang Him High!
Wonder what Senate the author is writing about? Certainly NOT the U.S. Senate where exactly the OPPOSITE is usual and customery. If lying carried the death penalty, most of the bastards in Washington would have been standing against a wall and shot a long time ago. Pitiful!! Pathetic!! Disgraceful!!
I contact my POS Senators once a day. Effing Traitors both.
“Manchin is a TRAITOR to the Constitution and the country. Hang Him High!”
I’m hoping that the good people of West Virginia burns his @$$....
There was a time when it looked like Manchin wasn’t like the rest. I watched him during a coal mining tragedy, seemed to be pro 2A, and I heard him talk about shooting down obamacare - BUT true to democrat form, they all fall in line to the libtard agenda. He’s no different from the rest.
We REALLY need to retake the Senate so that we can cut off the flow of Federal pork to this guy’s state. Then maybe...MAYBE...they will become clear-eyed and start evaluating him on his merits. Which are damned scarce.
But Kirk and Durbin don’t listen much . . .
..boy was he gotten too in a hurry...(your stimulus money at work)
If Chris Cox and NRA/ILA wish to regain their credibility, they will stand tall and vigorously denounce this bastard.
They have not done so.
POS “Traitor Joe” Munchkin was elected in 2012.
Didn’t this clown make a feint to the right when he was campaigning?
That "tradition" died a looooong time ago.
Manchin is a Nazi, union thug pig. He has no business being in the Senate.
Actually, he is right at home.
Manchin needs to quit bugging MY congressmen. They are voting just exactly the way their constituents are telling them to vote and they’ll be in office just as long as they continue to do that! Stuffed ballot boxes put him and his ilk in office.
