Joe Manchin Thinks it’s His Place to Apologize for an Unrelated Adult Woman

**This post contains profanity. It is not meant to be read by the pearl clutching faint of heart who are easily indisposed by the vapours.

W/VA Senator Joe Manchon, Republican in Democratic clothing, has been on the press circuit apologizing for a comment made by a new congresswoman, Democrat Rashida Tlaib.

Senator Manchin, who is not her father, is apologizing on her behalf for her use of the following statement- “We’re gonna impeach the motherfucker.”, “the motherfucker” in question being motherfucker Donald Trump.

Senator Joe Manchin was on FOX News, a Democratic Senator performing on GOP propaganda TV, calling her statement: “horrible,” “disgusting,” “deplorable.”

Side note: Senator Joe Manchin was the only Democrat who voted for blackout drunk frat boy, sexual predator, and repeated perjurer, Brett “I liked beer… I STILL LIKE BEER.” Kavanaugh, now sitting in a lifetime appointment in the Supreme Court.

Incidentally that SCOTUS appointment, that would not have passed without Manchin’s aye, mandates all 83 credible misconduct cases against him be dismissed… and they were:

Federal Panel Of Judges Dismisses All 83 Ethics Complaints Against Brett Kavanaugh

Here is what Manchin said with regards to his Kavanaugh vote:

Manchin also likes to say the word “shit”… a lot. Should we go through all curse words and assign them a value with regards to their offensiveness?

Also, and more importantly, Senator Joe Manchin has never condemned Donald Trump for his vulgar behavior. Need I repeat that motherfuckers long list of profanity, while bragging of sexual assault, or that used with regards to any who oppose him?

According to Manchin, and Trump, and the GOP, there are rules of decorum for women, especially those who are not of the Christian and lilly white genus, but there are no rules for Donald Trump, his GOP accomplices, or any of his sexual predator friends.

CEO of EpiPen Maker Mylan Sees 671% Compensation Increase In 8 Years

Remember the EpiPen price jump of 400%? I’ll remind you.

The lifesaving device, which contains $1’s worth of epinephrine, jumped to over $600… per pen. The device is sold in Canada for as low as $50.

Imposing said price hike of the lifesaving epinephrine device was Mylan Pharmaceutical’s CEO, Heather Bresch. She gave herself a raise for that move. Her annual salary rose 671%, from $2,453,456 to $18,931,068, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

By the end of 2017, continued public outcry over her pricing of EpiPen forced her to sell a generic version for $300.

CEO who gouged EpiPen price is daughter of Democratic senator

Whadda ya know, Bresch is Manchin’s daughter.

That’s not all. She is a tax evader.

Pop quiz time.

  1. Joe Manchin apologized to “all Americans, any sitting Congress person” for lawmaker Tlaib’s colorful call for Trump’s impeachment, but did he ever apologize for his daughter when she evaded taxes by moving her company out of the U.S., pocketing tens of millions of dollars in tax savings?
  2. Did Joe Manchin apologize when his daughter, Heather Bresch, endangered the lives of so many, when she priced them out of EpiPens?
  • Answer Key:
  • No to both.
  • Manchin slams ‘horrible’ comments from Dem calling for Trump impeachment: ‘So disgusting’

    Fuck Joe Manchin.

    Susan Collins, King Maker

    I am directing my anger today at Senator Susan Collins (R/ME), however it could easily be transferred to one of a number of equally deserving Senators.

    “We… ya know… I tell you what, I happen to know some United States Senators, one who is on the other side who is pretty aggressive. I’ve seen that person in very bad situations… okay? I’ve seen that person in very very bad situations, somewhat compromising, and you know— and I think it’s very unfair to bring up things like this. However, whatever the senators want is okay with me.” ~Donald Trump, October 1, 2018

    I could be aiming my fury at the Democrat who Trump so effectively blackmailed ON CAMERA this week, (Are you there mainstream media, it’s me, Lydia) theamominush’ Senator he threatened to expose… If only I could figure out who he meant. 🤔

    (Or) I could direct today’s rant at the only Democrat who turned coat to vote “aye” with the Republicans, Senator Joe Manchin (D/WV).

    (Manchin is father of the equally despicable CEO for Mylar Pharmaceuticals, Heather Bresch, the woman who gave herself a 471% pay increase after increasing the price of the lifesaving EpiPen 461%.)

    I could also go off on Flake, GrASSley, McConnell, Hatch, Kennedy, Trump…

    I choose to focus on Senator Susan Collins for now. Why? Because clearly she wants the attention. This is her modus operandi. She feigns angst, and thoughtfulness. She would never admit to knowing how she was going to vote on day one. She waited until the last possible moment to show her cards.

    I know a few others did that too, and although Collins is a fraud, so are all politicians. Why am I so angry at Susan Collins when there are 50 other Senators who voted in THE BLACKOUT DRUNK FRAT BOY RAPIST?

    I am angry because Susan Collins played with victims of sexual assault, like a cat plays with a mouse before it kills it, then she sold out her own gender.

    Collins held us hostage yesterday with empty hope. She gave a stellar performance on the senate floor yesterday. Her one woman show, her harridan harangue, that rapacious rant, a savage soliloquy, was all she wanted all along. She never intended to vote yes. NEVER. She wanted an audience.

    Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.” ~Plato

    Her diatribe was so long I forgot what Kavanaugh was … for a minute.

    She never intended to vote no to the man who will decimate women’s rights, the rights of labor, healthcare, contraception, money in politics, voting rights, LGBT rights, climate change, grant unlimited executive power…

    Why? I think her husband might have something to do with it. He is lobbyist Thomas Daffron of Jefferson Consulting Group. He is on the payroll of Russian oligarchs.

    There is no question as to whether Senator Collins is compromised. Okay, so why can’t she be compromised and shut up like the rest of the GOP?

    Collins is willing to look into they eyes of her constituents and nod, but she doesn’t hear them because, if you listen very carefully when she nods, you can hear the rubles clinking in her head. The clinking rubles have made it impossible for to hear the voices of those she works for.

    (In reviewing and editing this post prior to publishing, I have reached the halfway point. This is a long post, reminding me that in order to hold a readers interest, a writer must “kill her babies.” Not literally, ‘babies’ is a metaphor for words. I must cut off this post here. Meh, fuck that.)

    Senator Collins feigned her indecision, then she displayed her selective memory. Her argument might have been a good one if you didn’t know she was omitting the TRUTH of Kavanaugh’s flaws, or of the sham of an FBI investigation.

    She selectively forgot Kavanaugh’s continued delay and denial of an immigrant teen who had been raped and wanted an abortion: Garza v Hargan. Kavanaugh attempted to block her from obtaining a lawful abortion. Two DDCOAs judges stepped in just before it would have been too late.

    She ignored Kavanaugh’s lies under oath (a felony by any other name would smell as illegal). She forgot his bombastic behavior while he was questioned by the Democrats on the committee. She overlooked the 93% of his resume the GOP felt it needed to bury,

    Susan Collins is condescendingly sorry for Dr Ford, but said there just “wasn’t enough evidence” to rob Kavanaugh of his Judicial robe.

    Susan, how ya gonna see the evidence** with your eyes closed?

    The following is a statement from Dr Blasey Ford’s attorneys: **The FBI was not allowed to find evidence. The 1600 pages of tips called into the FBI tip hotlines were ignored. This investigation ignored 3 eyewitnesses to sexual assault, 22 perjuries, 48 corroborating witnesses, 16 prior disclosures, and dozens of Kavanaugh’s classmates who called him a liar.

    All the corroboration was essentially turned around and slapped on the ass before it was pushed away.

    Forget the sexual assault for a minute if you can, and consider:

    • 100,000 unreleased documents
    • Who paid his gambling debts?
    • Who bought his $1.5 million house?
    • Who paid his $92,000 golf club fee

    WHY DIDN’T ANYONE ASK HIM THOSE QUESTIONS? What happened to “due process?”

  • Collins ignored Kavanaugh’s repeated PERJURY, he lied about provable facts:
    • The drinking age in Maryland at the time.
    • He lied about watching Dr Fords testimony.
    • He lied about his partisanship, then lashed out in an unhinged rant, claiming revenge by the Clintons, dark money spent to destroy him, and something hateful about the Senate Democrats who were about to question him.
    • He lied about sexual innuendo in his yearbook: “Devil’s Triangle,” “Boofing,” “FffffForth of July,” and slut shaming “Renata.”
  • *He contacted his high school friends asking them to back up his lies. There are texts proving that. I’m pretty sure that would fall into the category of witness tampering and obstruction of justice.
    • He lied about timing. When had he heard about Ramirez, his Yale classmate’s accusation? It was prior to Dr Ford coming forward.
  • I’ll spare a minute for Jeff Flake. He played the same game Collins played. He said he would vote no if it was clear Kavanaugh lied, he would vote no if the one week long FBI investigation was not thorough, and finally, he said unless “something big” happens, he’d be voting yes.

    Define big.

    Kenneth Appold, was among the 48 witnesses who were ignored by the FBI. He is a respected Princeton Professor of Reformation History, and he wanted to tell the FBI that he learned of the Deborah Ramirez Yale incident with his suite mate Brett Kavanaugh the day it happened.

    I’d say that’s big.

    Groups who rejected Kavanaugh, and called for an FBI investigation that isn’t a SHAM:
    • ACLU
    • American Bar Association
    • Amnesty International
    • Harvard U
    • Jesuit Order
    • National Council of Churches
    • Yale Law School
    • 650+ Law Professors
  • Groups who were satisfied with the information they were spoon fed by Chuck GrASSley:
  • The GOP Senate majority and one Democratic Senator, Manchin
  • Collins’ view of Kavanaugh, is in opposition to the widely held public opinion of him. He is a nominee without public support, nominated by a historically unpopular president, an un-indicted co-conspirator who lost the popular vote by 3 million.

    In 2012, despite earning 1.4 million fewer votes, Republicans retained the U.S.House of Representatives, thanks to gerrymandering.

    Kavanaugh is about to confirmed by a Senate majority who were gerrymandered into their seats, and who represent a manipulated minority of the country whose votes hold more weight than they ought.

    The electoral fffffucking college, voter suppression, gerrymandering, and VOTER APATHY, are how we got here.

    The majority has been minimized…

    WE ALL NEED TO VOTE if we want to take our country back.

    Kavanaugh’s confirmation puts women’s rights, workers’ rights, LGBT rights, voting rights, the affordable health care, Social Security, and the planet, at risk.

    I’ll wind this up now. (You’re welcome.)

    Susan Collins, who ALWAYS plays the undecided moderate Senator, is not a moderate. She’s a Republican through and through in Trump’s pocket.

    She called on Al Franken to resign without the “due process and presumption of innocence” that she has given Kavanaugh.

    Thanks to you MS Collins, Donald Trump now has control of all three branches of government. How long do you think it will be before he ends the Mueller investigation and pardons all his criminal conspirators? You have crowned him King.

    Trump makes vague threat to unnamed Democratic senator while defending Kavanaugh: ‘I’ve seen that person in very, very bad situations’

    What Just Happened in the Senate?

    This is a follow up to the post I published earlier today.

    https://alotfromlydia.wordpress.com/2018/09/28/falsus-in-uno-falsus-in-omnibus/

    For those of you following the Senate Judiciary Committee events, I have to share this. I have no idea who the creator is. 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

    https://twitter.com/rob_bennett/status/1045724782510182400?s=12

    Today’s events thoroughly confused me, and I needed them explained more than once before everything made sense. I felt better about my stupefaction seeing Senator Feinstein on live stream, as bewildered as I. What just happened? What did they vote on? Why are they leaving?

    • Senator Blumenthal (D/CT) put forward a motion to subpoena Mark Judge, the other guy in the room during the alleged attack Of Dr Ford by Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It was voted down along party lines 11/10.
    • The vote to forward Judge Brett R(apey) Kavanaugh’s nomination to the floor of the senate took place, and he has progressed to phase 2.
    • The only glimmer of hope for democracy was Senator Flake (R/AZ), which is scary because he tends to live up to his name. He said that although he would vote yes, to send the vote to the senate floor, he has enough support on the Republican side to vote Kavanaugh down, when the vote goes to the full senate, unless a one week recess is taken, during which time an FBI investigation is allowed to take place.

    Now the decision lies with Chuck GrASSley and Mitch McConnell.

    I don’t have a lot of faith in Flake, but if he has the support of a few more republicans maybe there will be an investigation. Or maybe they’ll talk him into voting yes without an investigation. 🙄

    More to come…

    Last Ditch Efforts by the GOP

  • Kavanaugh’s senior yearbook names a woman repeatedly, implying something other than what he claims it meant. “A date.”
  • Kavanaugh’s Yearbook Page Is ‘Horrible, Hurtful’ to a Woman It Named
  • The GOP has searched far and wide for something they could latch onto in order to discredit Dr Blasey Ford. They found nothing in her background to exploit, so they invented what they could.
    • Attempted character assassination by way of spreading photos of half naked, blond women who appear to be intoxicated, across the internet. The women who they claim to be Ford are clearly not.
  • When that didn’t work they resorted to diluting Blasey Ford’s claims:
    • They are releasing numerous anonymous allegations against their guy, RapeyK, in an effort to cast doubt on credible allegations of victims who have come forward attaching their names, and who have witnesses.
  • And finally:
    • Two men have come forward to confess to attacking Ford on the night she was attacked (allegedly🙄) by Kavanaugh and Mark Judge… because confessing to an attack is normal behavior for sexual predators. (sarcasm)

    This is a mob effort. (Russian?) Kavanaugh must be the next Supreme Court Justice. They’ve paid his debt, put a deposit on his swanky digs, he has agreed to do what they ask. They expect a return on their investment, in the same way Russia’s investment in Trump paid off.

    There are multiple witnesses ready to speak out against Kavanaugh, but the GOP has effectively placed their hands over the mouths of witnesses to muffle their screams.

    1600 men added their names to a crowdfunded ad in the New York Times in support of Dr Ford.

    Two days ago, Slate ran a piece by a woman (Alexandra Lescaze) recounting what it was like growing up in the DC prep school scene. She also talked about guys lining up to rape a woman. It even had a name: the “lineup” bit.ly/2DvSPN2

    We Didn’t Call It Rape

    The GOP could choose an easy path, withdraw the man who clearly is not allowed to withdraw himself without permission from whoever owns him, but choose to do this the hard way… let it play out in public.

    They believe they can “plow him through,” no matter what, and they may be right.

    Good luck Dr Ford! You are the voice for millions of victims.

    I Believe Christine Blasey Ford

    Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who somebody (in Russia) must be blackmailing, said today— “lying to the FBI is not a big event.” If that is true, what’s the point of sworn in? Perjury is still illegal, isn’t it?

    Senator Graham might have meant— perjury is not a big event if it’s committed by someone on the GOP team.

    Today we have a Supreme Court nominee who committed perjury, no less than 5 times during his confirmation hearings, and now faces an accusation of attempted rape.

    Photo of Kavanaugh, during Senate Confirmation Hearings, refusing to shake hands with a man whose daughter was murdered during the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.

    The GOP had a list of 65 signatures ready, women who Kavanaugh didn’t rape.

    That list proves he didn’t attack anyone… right? I broke a glass in my kitchen, but I didn’t break 20 glasses in my kitchen, look at them, not a chip. I guess that means I never broke that broken glass.

    How much effort went into finding these women who claim to have known Kavanaugh 30 years ago… 65 women, and he went to an all boys high school. I’d have a hard time coming up with 65 men or women who I knew in high school.

    The GOP did their homework and had that letter ready because they knew allegations were coming. Rumor has it this is not even the accusation they were expecting. They were expecting to hear about an incident that took place during a summer internship. Maybe another woman will come forward.

    Now Republicans are in the process of attacking the accuser.

    They are as desperate as she is credible.

    Christine Blasey Ford, is the woman who came forward last week. She has two Masters Degrees, one in psychology from Pepperdine University, the other in Education from Stanford, and she has a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from USC. She is a professor at Palo Alto University and teaches clinical psychology in a consortium with Stanford. Her work has been published in many academic journals. She’s also been a research psychologist for Stanford’s Department of Psychiatry, and a professor at the Stanford School Of Medicine Collaborative Clinical Psychology Program.

    I’m impressed. So what did she say happened in that summer of 1983?

    • She was a 15 year old at a party.

    • On her way to the restroom, two 17 year old boys pushed into a bedroom.

    • One of them locked the door and turned up the music so no one would hear.

    • Kavanaugh covered her mouth so no one could hear her scream.

    • He groped her and tried to remove her clothes.
    • She believes if he hadn’t been so drunk and if he had been able to remove her clothes, he would have raped her.
    • She told her husband about it.

    • She told her therapist in 2012.

    • She passed a polygraph test administered by a former FBI agent.

    • She is willing to testify.

    I believe Christine Blasey Ford

    ***UPDATE: Only 2 of the 65 women who signed the character reference for Kavanaugh still support him now that they are aware of the allegations.

    ***UPDATE 2: Alumnae of the girls school Dr Ford attended have now penned their own missive, giving her their support. 😁
