Senator Kyrsten Sinema - A Smart Political Player & Joe Manchin

Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema announced that she is leaving the Socialist Fascist (AKA Democrat) Party to register as an Independent.  This is happening because Sinema is facing reelection in 2024 and she knows that she would be challenged by a Socialist Fascist in the primary, which she would lose.  Even though Sinema votes with Joe Biden 90% of the time, she is a moderate often forcing compromise to get her vote.  In addition, they HATE her because she refuses to vote to end the filibuster in the Senate, which would otherwise allow Socialist Fascists to pass very left wing legislation without the need to get 60 votes in the Senate to end debate.  

So, though Sinema will caucus with the Socialist Fascists allowing them to maintain their majority control for now, in 2024, she will run as an Independent with no need to worry about a Primary challenge.  Sinema is a very smart political player.  Arizona is a Purple state.  She might be able to get enough old style Democrats, moderate Republicans and Independents to keep her Senate seat.  It remains to be seen if this will be the case.  But one thing is for sure.  She would have lost to a left wing Primary challenger and if that happened, she would have no chance of keeping her seat. 

The next shoe to fall has to be Democrat Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, a Ruby Red State.  Manchin sold West Virginia down the tubes in the recent trillion dollar plus SwindleUs Plan that he voted for.  In exchange, he was supposed to get a natural gas pipeline taking gas from West Virginia to other states along with a more moderate energy policy that would have protected the coal industry in West Virginia.  After the vote, the Socialist Fascists screwed Joe Manchin giving him neither of these provisions to take home to his state.  As a result, Manchin's polls ratings are at 30% approval in West Virginia.  

If Manchin runs as a Democrat in West Virginia in 2024, he will lose.  Manchin's only salvation would be to switch parties and become a Republican.  Manchin has said he has no intention of switching; but since he is not welcome in the Socialist Fascist Party, don't be surprised if political reality does not set in pretty quickly to save his own skin.  If Manchin plans on running in 2024, he will have to switch parties to keep his seat.  Majority control in the Senate hangs in the balance.  Stay tuned.
