"Joe Manchin is lying to us about climate change to protect his annual profits and the wealth of his family"


That is not me saying this, it is legitimate investigative journalism saying it.





This is why Joe Manchin will destroy our deal and kill our environment







https://www.salon.com/2021/07/16/joe-manchin-green-new-deal-critic-made-nearly-500k-last-year-from-coal-lobby-report_partner/


Surely someone could offer him $25 million or more for his company so he could do the right thing and save the human race?





Manchin earns hundreds of thousands of dollars each year through coal sales to power plants that supply Edison Electric Institute member companies. His family company, Enersystems, is a contractor of American Bituminous Power Partners (AmBit), a coal power plant located near Grant Town, W.V. that provides energy to Monogahela Power Company, according to documents from the West Virginia Public Services Commission (PSC). Also known as Mon Power, the electric company is a subsidiary of energy giant FirstEnergy and an EEI member.

Manchin founded the coal brokerage Enersystems in 1988 and helped run the company, handing control to his son Joseph upon being elected West Virginia secretary of state in 2000 and reportedly moving his holdings into a blind trust between 2005 and 2010. In Manchin's most recent financial disclosure, covering the fiscal year 2020, he reports that his non-public shares of Enersystems, a "contract services and material provider for utility plants," are worth between $1 million and $5 million, and sent him an income of $492,000. His total income from the company since joining the Senate is more than $4.5 million.



If you think my proposal is silly, think about it like this: if he could be bought out of that industry, there is NO reason for him to oppose the bill and NO reason for him to insist on continuing to harm the environment. This is LIFE and DEATH shit folks...find someone to do it please!

I created two threads on this because it is IMPORTANT and I am fucking serious, can we find someone to do it?



ps We would NOT need Joe and Sinema if any republicans would do the right thing and NOT be traitorous scum, but they ALL ARE!

And his brain is broken, so I dont try and figure him out.

Manchin and Sinema dont have that excuse that I know of. I guess they are just so selfish they will actually cause mass pain and suffering for the entire human race.

I couldn't do it, I couldn't sleep at night. I do NOT know how they can.

Oh, and what these two are guilty of

ALL REPUBLICANS ARE GUILTY OF

also a multibillionaire who 'made it big, yuuuge', all whist being the worst human being the US has EVER produced, and that validates all the HORRID characteristics they share with Trump (except for the big money, BUT they think that they are just one 'lucky break' away from hitting it big time too).

Trump is the worst human ever produced in the US by a billion plus miles, as he literally is a madman who got into the ultimate power perch on present day planet Earth (POTUS) and then perma-fucked the nation (fucked in terms of the present iteration of the US, the only way it possibly becomes 'un-fucked' will entail a FAR different nation (in outcome) at basic foundational levels, likely after a kinetic civil war).
