Democrats are responding in typical fashion to Sen. Joe Manchin’s promised “no” vote on President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Act: They are foaming at the mouth.
According to Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., “It’s an example of Joe Manchin, as a white man, showing that he doesn’t care about black people. He doesn’t care about Latinos. He doesn’t care about immigrants. He doesn’t care about women, and he doesn’t care about the poor.”
Bowman echoed Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., who said, “Joe Manchin’s opposition to the Build Back Better Act is anti-black, anti-child, anti-woman, and anti-immigrant.”
So, the West Virginia Democrat is a racist, xenophobe, misogynist, and a plutocrat. Congratulations, Senator. You won the Woke-istani superfecta!

Manchin, his foes claim, imperils democracy itself.
MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan warns, “Manchin is killing the Biden legislative agenda, and perhaps the future of American democracy, too.” Columnist Jennifer Rubin of The Washington Post left no hair unyanked: “Democracy is hanging by a thread.”
None of the left’s spittle-flecked hyperventilation explains why Manchin finally spurned Build Back Better: It stinks.
This monstrosity is too immense, too costly, and too hyperactive. If Build Back Better were a human being, it would need to be duct-taped to a chair and drowned in tranquilizers.
Build Back Better drones on for 2,466 pages, equivalent to 15 copies of the Benediction Classics edition of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” Among randomly chosen items, it addresses ‘‘wildland-urban interface,” “energy savings estimates that accrue to low-income households,” “acquisition, design, and construction of a Great Lakes heavy icebreaker,” “qualified clean hydrogen production,” “Body and spa treatments,” and much, much, much more.
Biden absurdly declared on Sept. 25 that “My Build Back Better agenda costs zero dollars.” This is exactly $1.75 trillion below congressional Democrats’ sticker price. They, in turn, fake this figure by claiming that Build Back Better’s “life-changing provisions”—as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., dubs them—soon would expire.
Now, would Pelosi plant a grove of shade trees at her Napa Valley vineyard and schedule them for extraction between 2022 and 2027?
Regardless, Democrats sponsored child tax credits, day care for all, Obamacare subsidies, and other socialist goodies, and argued that they would vanish in one to six years. This disinformation helped Democrats construct the bright, shining lie that Build Back Better would cost “only” $1.75 trillion.
Thankfully, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Rep. Jason Smith, R-Mo., asked the Congressional Budget Office to score Build Back Better without Democrats’ Bernie Madoff-style accounting fraud.
CBO’s honest numbers forecast Build Back Better’s 10-year cost: $4.73 trillion. That is 270% of its phony, official price tag. That staggering sum exceeds the inflation-adjusted price of World War II, which Manchin estimates at $4.5 trillion.
Build Back Better also would boost the national debt by $3 trillion. This is light years from Biden’s lie that his bill “adds zero dollars to the national debt.” The bill should be rechristened Build Bankruptcy Better and condemned as a Superfund site amid November’s 6.8% year-over-year inflation rate, the highest since June 1982.
Build Back Better is also a Pandora’s box teeming with far-left vipers and viruses. Among them:
- $1.7 billion in payouts to local newspapers. Buh-bye, objectivity!
- $2.5 billion in subsidies for trial attorneys who file contingency lawsuits.
- $80 billion to deploy 86,852 brand-new IRS agents to squeeze every conceivable dime from taxpayers with annual incomes as low as $25,000.
- A Civilian Climate Corps would unleash 300,000 busybodies to hector Americans into “greener” lives.
- Pricier child care, due to proposed regulations that babysitters be paid equal to elementary school teachers.
- Universal pre-kindergarten, all the better to brainwash children with critical race theory, gender confusion, and sexy thoughts at ages 3 and 4, rather than 5 or 6.
One need not be a rich white guy who hates blacks, women, and poor people to ponder all of this and yell, “Hell, no!” As for Manchin, he is guilty of only this: His eyes are wide open.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
