Clyburn Tears into Manchin Over Filibuster

Senator Manchin (D-W.V.) is not buying into an exception for the filibuster.

This is creating a significant rift in the Democrat Party.

Rep. Clyburn (D-S.C.), one of the more prominent and influential Dems in the House, is livid, openly calling out Manchin.

The Civil War

If you thought the infighting in the GOP was bad when Trump was in office, well, get a load of this.

Manchin does not support a rules change, stating, “I’ve always been for rules being done the way we’ve always done, two-thirds of members voting.

“Any way you can do a rules change to where everyone’s involved, that’s a rule that usually will stay. That’s what we should be pursuing.”

Clyburn stated, “I am, as you know, a black person, descended of people who were given the vote by the 15th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

“The 15th Amendment was not a bipartisan vote. It was a single-party vote that gave black people the right to vote.

“Manchin and others need to stop saying that because that gives me great pain for somebody to imply that the 15th Amendment of the United States Constitution is not legitimate because it did not have bipartisan buy-in.”

You know what is funny about that statement? It was Democrats that tried to block the voting amendment, with only Republicans voting in favor of it.

That is actually secondary to the point that NOBODY Is challenging the 15th Amendment is not legitimate, either.

This is what Democrats do, though… they always have to take things to an extreme.

Stop making excuses, Clyburn, there is no way you can justify an exception to the filibuster rule to get your way, no matter how far back you dig into history.

  1. The fact that the DemonRATS are not seeking an exception to the filibuster is disgraceful. I have set back and watched Schumer argue against eliminating the filibuster. He did no because they were in the minority. But now, they seek the very thing that, if eliminated, would change this nation as we now know it. There’s an old saying “what goes around, comes around.” Som call it Karma. Well, that’s what is about to happen this Nobember. Those Dems who removed Republican’s from their committees are about to lose their positions as chairmen (such as Schumer, Nadler, Pelosi, Swalwell and others). The rules they set forth will be the same that will be used to get rid of these idiots. Just yesterday, Kevin McCarthy promised to boot these people off their committees. You can guarantee that there will be accountability.

  2. Growing up I never had a prejudice bone in my body, I’m not like that anymore. These black people today think they are gods and can treat the white people like crap. It would be the last thing they did if they treated me like that

  3. this guy is the real reason that this horrible, useless , guy , we have as our president was even supported and put on the ticket.

  4. Hooray Civil War awesome, see Manchin go GOP but his voting record is NOT moderate
    Voted for HR 5 the Election law bill Dems want etc

  5. I have read the book, Peril, and I believe Clyburn is cited within as being the person who saw to it that Biden was nominated for the Democratic competitor for the office of President. Why is that not mentioned here? Is this even true? Many of us have wondered how Biden got the nomination when others seemed to do better in the polls. Remember, too, that the first time out, I believe it was in Iowa, the vote counter did not work and those votes were never counted. The beginning of other troubles, perhaps?
