1. Yes he is.

A corrupt sellout, one of two deciding votes to end true democracy in this country and hand permanent rule over to republicons.

3. It definitely should.

Having that "D" after the name should require support of democratic policy to get the protections it entitles here.

Several, who are not registered Democrats, actually do more to work FOR Democratic policy and support Biden than some people with that D after their name.

11. I agree. . .and in other news, water is still wet and the sun still sets in the west

Manchin isn't even a 1/4 Democrat.

And my senior senator isn't a Democrat either. She's a narcissist. I can't wait for the AZ senate primary in 2024.

12. Folks, here's the bottom line.

 

He's a fuck-stick, but he is our fuck-stick.

Whether we like it, or not.

Unless we have a Republican in our pocket that would like to cross the aisle we have to put up with his shit.

And, he knows that.

His "stock and trade" is being "the fly in the ointment."

I would hate to see what could happen if "Moscow Mitch" were to re-acquire his former position.

So, let him be the shit-ass that he wishes to be for the meantime, because we might just have to wait for the cadre of fat white southerner's to die off.

However, it might be easier to just get rid of the Senate altogether.

A boy can dream.

15. However, in meantime, one might wonder....

 

....where he might put his gains.

Wyoming is a great place to hide your profits from "industry" speculation.

13. He gives me the creeps. I wouldn't be surprised

if we were to find some nasty skeletons in his closet. He really gives me the heebee jeebies. I can't really say why, I just get a creepy vibe from him. He's definitely a bad guy.

Thanks for sharing this, I_UndergroundPanther. ❤

14. the pic from the OP article

coal mob stylee



The senator from West Virginia is bought and paid for by Big Coal. With his help the dying industry is pulling one final heist — and the entire planet may pay the price


“Humanity should have phased out coal yesterday,” climate scientist Peter Kalmus tells me. “Burning fossil fuels is what’s driving the crazy heat waves, flooding, and ecosystem deaths we’re now experiencing, and which are rapidly intensifying. And coal is the worst of the worst in terms of carbon-emissions intensity.”

But coal was not phased out yesterday. Globally, 40 percent of electricity comes from burning coal, creating 30 percent of global carbon emissions. The biggest coal burner is China, which consumes more coal than the rest of the world combined. Here in the U.S., coal is gradually being displaced by cheap natural gas, wind, and solar. But there are still 179 active coal plants in the U.S., generating 20 percent of U.S. electricity. Virtually the entire states of West Virginia and Wyoming are powered by coal.

In the long run, coal is roadkill to technological progress. The problem is that it isn’t dying fast enough. “No scenario for stabilizing warming below truly dangerous levels allows for substantial additional extraction and burning of coal,” says Penn State climate scientist Michael Mann, author of The New Climate War. “Even the conservative International Energy Agency has said that there can be no new fossil-fuel infrastructure (especially coal) if we are to keep warming under 1.5 C/3 F, a level beyond which we commit to some of the worst impacts of climate change.”

There are lots of reasons why coal has proved to be so hard to get rid of. Part of it has to do with the sheer scale of coal-industry infrastructure — the mines, the railroads, the power plants. Part of it has to do with the cultural bias that real men burn rocks for power. Part of it has to do with dark money and political influence. And part of it has to do with us, the energy consumers who don’t know where our power comes from and don’t really care.
