Sen. Joe Manchin publically defies far-left Democrat platform

It’s not being heavily reported across the mainstream media, but Democrats took a noticeably rough beating in the 2020 election and that has already sparked public infighting with concern to where the party goes from here on an ideological level.

According to Breitbart, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) made an appearance on Fox News’ “Special Report” to make crystal clear that he’s against the more radical ideas of his party such as defunding the police, vowing to Fox News viewers that he’s committing to voting against those progressive policies, should Democrats win the U.S. Senate.

“I commit to you tonight, and I commit to all of your viewers and everyone else that’s watching, I want to allay those fears, I want to rest those fears for you right now. Because when they talk about, whether it be packing the courts or ending the filibuster, I will not vote to do that. I will not vote to pack the courts,” Manchin said.

Manchin went on to explain to Fox News host Bret Baier that he believes it’s unfortunate that all Democrats are being grouped together for supporting what Manchin called the “crazy stuff,” which was obviously a reference to the ultra-progressive ideas like the Green New Deal.

The West Virginia senator also slammed the idea of medicare for all — which has been a landmine issue for the more moderate side of the party. However, now that voters have made clear that they’re against the more progressive ideas of the Democrat party, it appears as if more of the moderates, like Manchin, are willing to finally take a stand.

“And when they talk about basically, Medicare for all, we can’t even pay for Medicare for some. It doesn’t make any sense at all,” Manchin said.

As Yahoo News reported, if the outcome of the upcoming Senate runoff election in Georgia end up splitting the upper chamber 50-50, Manchin could be a key figure — and perhaps the GOP’s only hope — of derailing ultra-progressive legislation that will undoubtedly make its way through Congress.

“I’m a proud moderate conservative Democrat. Maybe there’s not many of us left but I can tell you what this country wants is moderation,” Manchin said.

If Biden wins the White House and Democrats take over the Senate, America can only hope and pray that centrists like Manchin will hold true to their word.

    1. The proof is going to be in the pudding folks! This guy is going to want his shoe in too. He’s not going to want to lose his position and I’m sure he’s going to want it be reelected also.

  1. THANK YOU FOR YOUR BRAVERY AND GOOD SENSE!If more moderate Democrats speak up and stand up these
    RADICAL LEFTIST PROGRESSIVES will be stopped and replaced.THE US CONSTITUION must be upheld.U.S. CITIZENS should determine the outcome of elections not the PRESS ,ILLEGALS OR COMPUTER FRAUD!

    1. Hi Adita, Your comments are right on. I really appreciate you expressing your thoughts, with which I agree. I wish Joe Manchin would come over to the GOP.
      I even think the Pope was outrageous to call Biden and his newly appointed Cardinal from DC was so unkind to tell Pres. Trump and Melania that he didn’t think they should have prayed before St. Pope JP II, how dare he.

    2. I would think that moderate Democrats would identify more with today’s Republican party. They just have to exhibit the spine to take that stand without fear of retribution from their party.

    1. THANK YOU SEN MANCHIN- WE NEED TO BRING BACK THE PARTY OF JFK SO HE CAN QUIT TURNING IN HIS GRAVE.TODAYWS DEMS WANT TO REMAKE AN AMERICA THAT THEY HATE. I SAY LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT,BUT LEAVE IT THE HELL ALONE.

  2. Being a former Democrat it is good to see that there is at least one left with some common sense. God speed Joe Manchion.

  3. I am from WV and I will tell you one one thing…good thing Joe is retiring…. WV has the highest perventage of Trump votes then any state, I will make myself clear..Biden and Harris..YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO TAKE OUR WEAPONS AWAY. Good Luck!!! You want to feel fear and uncomfortable..come to WV and spew your nonesense.

  4. Have heard Joe say good words before but when it came to backing them up; it was “no go Joe”-Sorry, I used to like him!!

  5. Destroy the DEMONCRAPS CORRUPT/EVIL SWAMP. MAY KARMA fall on ALL DEMONCRAPS THAT CORRUPT AMERICA.
    TRUMP WILL PREVAIL. HE LOVES AMERICA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸…..
    PRAY FOR JUSTICE 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻……

  6. Honorable Joe Manchin,
    I have admired you since I saw you helping carry the coal miners that were rescued to the ambulances.
    Now, I want to ask you to carry your country the USA like you did those miners so that we can remain free. I have a 12 year old grandson I love so much and, with the Biden crowd in control,, I am afraid my grandson will not know the real America that we have taught him. His 100 year old great grandfather fought in D-Day and we tell our grandson that his Pop was one of the men that fought for him to live free.

  7. Very noble and commendable gesture.
    That is, to do what is right and not what’s politically expedient.
    To Keep America the righteous and great country that it is.
    Great guts and keep strong.
    Nice job and I’m now a fan of Senator Joe Manchin.
    GO MOUNTAINEERS.

  8. It’s going to be to late more than half of you folks voting for Biden an harris.now your seeing what he’s planning on doing you real what you sow or what ever God Bless America.

  9. Thanks Manchin where were you with all this anti progessive BS duing the year of campaigning? Afraid of losing your job to speak the lies your speaking now. Hypocrite bastard.

    1. Bernadean says:

      Please God, no, no, no. Kamala would make a most terrible President.

      My thanks to Joe MacLain for all you are doing.

  10. Don’t trust him. He’ll cave under pressure. The only way to prevent our country from going down the drain is if President Trump wins.

  11. I think the POPE should stay out of our Politics. After all it is suppose to be a separation of state and religion. I would like to see more Democrats come to their own way of thinking. Instead of going along with what they do not believe. I would watch out for digital money and the Feds taking our money right out of our accounts and tracking us every thing we do. It is suppose to go into effect Jan 1, 2021. How Funny the news media never says anything about it. It is something Nancy Pelosi came up with and Donald Trump approved it. When u get a vaccine they are going to insert a chip and that is how they are going to do it!

  12. SORRY I missed the broadcast o n FOX however I am done with Fox they have become t o liberal for me. It is now OAN & Newsmax.

  13. I’m not from WV and never heard of Sen. Joe. I certainly would have recognized him had he stood up for the Pres. and stood down the Dems. stupid agenda. Come on over to the Rep. party Sen. Joe, then we may really believe what you are claiming. The Democrat party has become a party of deceit and dishonesty.

  14. Stay where you are Senator Manchin your openness may help others in the “D” party to be stronger and show that they, like you, have a free mind. It only takes one person in a group to stand up and be counted on to help others stand up also. My personal appreciation is extended to you as a true Senator. I as an “R” respect you for speaking up for the betterment of America. Of course, you are always welcome to come over to our side!
