We reported recently how Democrat Joe Manchin is standing up to the radical left. He has vowed not to vote for any far-left agenda that might reach the Senate.
That includes refusing to pack the courts, eliminate the filibuster, or anything else they have threatened to do.
Quickly, socialist AOC reacted this way:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. fired a warning shot at Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., as the moderate West Virginia Democrat continued to vow that he will block any “crazy socialist agenda” on Capitol Hill…
That did not sit well with Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist, who fired back at Manchin with a photograph from President Trump’s State of the Union address where the congresswoman is seen giving Manchin the death stare as he offered a standing ovation during the president’s speech.
Oh no! The insufferable joke of a representative thinks she can intimidate a sitting senator! I’m sure Manchin is really scared, right about now.
But it seems like not all is what it seems. And Ted Cruz was to clarify:
This is all theatre.
If Dems win GA, Chuck Schumer will be terrified of being primaried from the Left, which means @aoc will effectively be Senate Majority Leader. And Joe Manchin will dutifully obey (like he did on ACB & impeachment).
Cruz seems to be ripping the mask off both AOC and Manchin. He said that if Democrats win the Senate, AOC will be calling the shots.
Joe Manchin won’t vote against their radical agenda, out of fear of disobeying his leftist overlords.
Cruz reminded voters how Manchin, despite his previous claims, voted to remove Trump from office and refuse to confirm Justice Barrett.
Like we speculated earlier, Manchin comes from a deeply red state. He is hanging onto his seat by the skin of his teeth.
It’s possible he will say anything to stay in the good graces of West Virginia residents. But when push comes to shove, can they count on him to really oppose the radical left?
Cruz doesn’t think so.
What can we conclude? All we have is Manchin’s voting record—and it ain’t great. He’s hardly been a real opponent to the left’s wild schemes these days. Why should we believe him now?
The reality is, you can’t trust a Democrat, can you? If Americans don’t want to see radical policies upend our way of life, Republicans must hold the Senate, so they have to win in Georgia.
