Hours After Working To Abolish Filibuster, Democrats Filibuster Anti-Putin Bill

“That push culminated in a visit to Capitol Hill yesterday by Joe Biden. The president was there to push for the abolishment of the filibuster yet again as part of a plan by Chuck Schumer to pass a “voting rights” bill making voter ID illegal, legalizing ballot harvesting, publicly funding campaigns, and handing state redistricting power to partisans in Washington, DC, among many other objectionable measures.

Predictably, that push failed. Kyrsten Sinema gave a surprise floor speech that officially ended any speculation she might vote to blow up the filibuster. Shortly after, Joe Manchin reiterated his opposition in a lengthy statement.

But then something incredible happened. Literally hours after the Democrats embarked on a major offensive to abolish the filibuster as a tool of racists everywhere, they then…used the filibuster. They didn’t just block any bill either. They did Russia’s Vladimir Putin a solid by blocking Ted Cruz’s bill to sanction the Nordstream 2 pipeline.”

I think the new Axis of Evil consists of China, Russia, and the Biden Regime.

It definitely works both ways and both major parties are total hypocrites regarding the Filibuster.

As for me I favor keeping the filibuster regardless of which party is in charge at any given time.

Then let’s make it an honest filibuster, like they have in Texas and other states: you want to filibuster, you stand in the well of the Senate and speak your mind for as long as you want, but when you stop, it’s over.
