Biden nominates wife of Senate swing vote to prominent administration post

President Joe Biden will nominate the wife of moderate Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) to a high-paying federal position, according to Breitbart News

Information indicating Biden’s plans to nominate Gayle Connelly Manchin, wife of Manchin — a critical swing vote in the Senate — to be the chair of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) made it to the media earlier this week. 

The position that Connelly Manchin would potentially take pays roughly $160,000 according to reports cited by Breitbart. 

Connelly Manchin would be replacing Tim Thomas as federal co-chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission. According to the Washington Times, the organization is responsible for key issues in more than a dozen states:

“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,” the Washington Times reported. 

The Times also reported that the job brought with it the hefty annual pay of around $163,000.

This appointment would likely assist Manchin in his efforts to remain seen as a Moderate, but would also be problematic for his fellow senators who are more than a little nervous about the 50/50 split in the Senate, which only gives Democrats control due to the Democratic control over the White House.

The position, in and of itself, is significant, however. Connell Manchinin has spoken positively about Biden’s plans for religious freedom, telling the Christian Post, saying, according to Breitbart News, that the Biden administration “will be just as strong” on religious freedom as former President Donald Trump’s.

I voted for Trump, always and forever! I didn’t want brain-dead Biden, knowing that he would have puppeteers pulling his strings. Telling him and guiding him on what to say and what his next move would be. I feel Dr, Biden is committing elderly abuse by supporting these shenanigans, shame on her. Maybe the Biden family can get a discount in prison. The rest need to be arrested for total ignorance of our Constitution. They have broken so many as of now and are turning our Country into the 2nd Communist Regime. Let’s get them out!!

For the last 3 years I can’t post any comments on AOL under news stories. All I ever did was stand up for President Trump and I guess to them that was enough but I would always see some very faul comments about him and that was ok for AOL.

If the Republicans take back the House and Senate in 2022, McCarthy will become Speaker of the House. So with the majority, the Republicans won’t need any help from the Dems. Impeach Biden and Harris and McCarthy becomes president until the 2024 election.

I believe Mrs. Manchin is an honorable woman and will serve if appointed. She is not a lady that can be bought by Biden. There are good “D”s that cannot be bought. Mr. Manchin cannot be bought as he has shown already. What goes around comes around, neither of the Manchin’s are dumb enough to fall for the evil “D”s! I pray that other “D”s will follow and stand up against the evil side of the self-righteous side. God Bless America!!

Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.
