It’s starting to make more and more sense for Joe Manchin to switch parties. And if he does, it will give the Senate back to the Republican party.
That’s exactly what top republicans are encouraging him to do. Mike Lee, a senator from Utah extended an open invitation to Manchin:
“There’s still plenty of time he can still switch parties if he wants to, I encourage him to do so,” Lee told Fox News host Trey Gowdy. “There’s no reason why he belongs with the party of inflation, why he belongs with the party of lawlessness, why he ought to remain with the party that’s harassing intimidating and belittling him at every turn, just so they can fundamentally remake the American economy and American society.”
“Joe Manchin absolutely should leave the Democratic Party and I look forward to embracing him when he joins our caucus,” Lee added. “What they see here is that they belittle him and intimidate him enough that somehow he relent. That’s of course, not going to happen. Joe Manchin’s got a backbone and he’s got principles, and he’s also got constituents, you know, he represents the good people of West Virginia, including a whole lot of poor and middle class Americans who are finding that everything they buy from gas to groceries from housing to healthcare, is getting more expensive, unaffordably so, and they’re understanding increasingly that this is happening as a result of federal government. It’s just printing money to the tune of trillions of dollars it doesn’t have, that hurts America’s poor middle class.”
I think it’s about a 50-50 that Manchin does switch parties. The results would be catastrophic for Democrats. It would mean court-packing, killing the filibuster, DC statehood, federalized voter fraud, and so many other liberal priorities would be dead on arrival.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
CNN’s Brian Stelter is the most ridiculous man in media, but he’s also dangerous because he’ll say the quiet parts out loud. Stelter just called for the media to abandon the pretense of objectivity and refuse to cover Republicans. Watch:

It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood. – James Madison
