Admit it Bernie — you don’t really care about ‘Biden’s agenda’. You care about your own. Joe just happens to be on the same page as you.
There’s nothing better than some blue-on-blue infighting. Let’s have a look at what’s got Bernie rattled this time.
Bernie Sanders was hoping for another big blank check he could use to hose down the US economy in all the ways only a socialist thinks best. But Manchin put the brakes on that plan.
And now the one Senator who couldn’t even be bothered to call himself a Democrat is suddenly pissed off at the one of the impossibly few Democrat Senators who has NOT been acting as a rubber stamp for every wild idea that Biden, Pelosi, and Schumer send over for elected Democrats’ automatic and unthinking approval.
Manchin has, to some degree at least, been framing the big questions of national policy in the one context Joe Manchin was elected to frame them — how will this affect the lives of my constituents.
As it happens, Manchin has figured out that inflation and unemployment are NOT in the best interests of West Virginians.
Here’s Bernie unloading on Manchin on the Sunday shows for ‘sabotaging the President’s agenda’.
Sen. Joe Manchin is “intentionally sabotaging the president’s agenda, what the American people want, what a majority of us in the Democratic caucus want,” Sen. Bernie Sanders tells @MarthaRaddatz.

That’s not sabotage, Bernie. Sabotage is what the DNC did to make sure you were not at the top of the ticket as their party’s nominee. Twice. You of all people should know the difference.
It never occurs to Bernie that when the agenda sucks, it needs to be derailed. It’s not a question of red team and blue team. It’s a question of good policy or bad. And policy that Bernie will endorse is almost predictably bad. (He was, after all, the guy who specifically praised Venezuela’s economy on his Senatorial Blog page back in 2011. It has been deleted, but the internet is forever.)
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
