Sinema ‘Prepared To Walk Away’ From Biden Agenda

Political allies close to Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) reportedly told Axios that the “wine-drinking triathlete” will not be bullied into supporting the partisan $3.5 trillion reconciliation package Democrats are using to push part of President Joe Biden’s radical agenda.

Her political allies are claiming Sinema — who does not play by the typical rules of Washington, DC by giving in to the party needs — is “prepared to walk away” from Biden’s agenda.

Speaking to some of her colleagues, the senator reportedly suggested that the top priority for her was the “bipartisan” infrastructure deal she helped put together in the spring. Biden and his top aides have met with the senator multiple times this week and have yet to have success breaking through to Sinema.

Axios detailed some of the concerns Sinema has reportedly said to her allies trying to pass the monster bill:

  • She’s suggested to some allies that she’s reluctant to support any increase in the corporate tax rate, but she’s more likely to accept a smaller increase to the headline rate — likely in the 24% range, well short of Biden’s proposed 28%.
  • She’s raised flags about increasing the rate on corporations’ international profits, which she believes could harm their competitiveness.
  • On capital gains, she’s also indicated that she’s opposed to Biden’s headline 39.6% rate but could accept a number in the mid-twenties.

The offices of Sinema, and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), released separate statements Thursday — ahead of when the House was planning on voting on the “bipartisan” infrastructure bill they both helped broker. Sinema’s office reaffirmed her position not to support the partisan $3.5 trillion reconciliation package.

“Senator Sinema said publicly more than two months ago, before Senate passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill, that she would not support a bill costing $3.5 trillion,” the statement said, adding that the senator previously “shared detailed concerns and priorities, including dollar figures, directly with Senate Majority Leader Schumer and the White House.”

Salvation Army: White donors need to offer ‘Sincere Apology’ for their Racism

The Salvation Army wants its white donors to give it more than just money this Christmas season.

Its leadership is also demanding they apologize for being racist.

It’s part of a push by the Christian charitable organization to embrace the ideas of Black Lives Matter, and “dismantle white privilege” and “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”

The Salvation Army’s Alexandria-based leadership has created an “International Social Justice Commission” which has developed and released a “resource” to educate its white donors, volunteers and employees called Let’s Talk about Racism.

It asserts Christianity is institutionally racist, calling for white Christians to repent and offer “a sincere apology” to blacks for being “antagonistic.. to black people and the values of the black community.”

“Many have come to believe that we live in a post-racial society, but racism is very real for our brothers and sisters who are refused jobs and housing, denied basic rights and brutalized and oppressed simply because of the color of their skin,” one lesson explains. “There is an urgent need for Christians to evaluate racist attitudes and practices in light of our faith, and to live faithfully in today’s world.”

In an accompanying Study Guide on Racism, Salvation Army authors explain that all whites are racist, even if they don’t realize it. “The subtle nature of racism is such that people who are not consciously racist easily function with the privileges, empowerment and benefits of the dominant ethnicity, thus unintentionally perpetuating injustice,” it says.
