    Default Will Manchin & Sinema's home be raided by Biden's FBI next?

    The United States Senate delivered more bad news for the illegitimate Biden regime late Wednesday night in the form of two votes: one that failed to move DEMOCRATS' federal takeover of elections forward and a subsequent unsuccessful attempt by Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to nuke the legislative filibuster in order to force the DEMOCRAT power-grab through with their razor-thin majority.

    Shambolic Shamala Harris presided over the first vote, just another in a string of defeats she's ended up personally presiding in the Biden-Harris administration's first year.

    This one may have stung even more, though, as "reforming" elections in the United States was one of the policies bungling Biden tasked hapless Harris with ramming through Congress.

    In the first vote to break a Republican filibuster on the legislation DEMOCRATS wrongly claim is about "voting rights," the party of perpetual power came up short of the 60 votes needed in a 49 to 51 vote.

    Slimy Schumer then attempted to use the "nuclear option" to change the rules to allow DEMOCRATS to move their election takeover forward with a simple majority.

    That too failed — to widespread applause from many Senators/

    DEMOCRATS were unable to even reach the 51-vote threshold necessary to amend the rules.

    Senators Manchin and Sinema voted with Republicans to foil seething Schumer's attempted use of the nuclear option, effectively killing DEMOCRATS' latest attempt at a federal takeover of elections.

    What's next? Martial law and a suspension of elections?

    bs. Actually tRumptards and other un-American sewer slime are not the winners from hell they think they are:

    Chin Up: The Democrats Just Had a Big Voting Rights Win | Opinion

    For most Democrats, last week was downright depressing. It started with President Biden's impassioned plea to Senators to end the filibuster in order to pass two desperately-needed election protection bills. It ended with Senator Kyrsten Sinema killing that idea in the cradle.

    For those who see the threat of a total meltdown of American democracy as very real and very near, it was a body blow. Ranging from deeply frustrated to downright enraged, many assumed that all hope was lost.

    They were wrong.

    Yes, losing those bills hurts. And Democrats shouldn't give up on the federal level: The torrent of Republican laws to suppress votes and subvert elections remains a clear and present danger to American democracy, and perhaps to our the ability to hold together the country itself. But for those who were paying attention, there was actually a significantly more hopeful development last week."

    Bottomline, there should be more than one way to get around the seditious and filibustering war atrocities of repuke rats' effort to destroy voting rights of all Americans and Democracy from within and anything else of a civilized nature.

    I cant believe they bothered with these votes.
    Its bad enough to be impotent but worse to demonstrate it to the world on TV.

    bbut the donkeys have this moth to flame thing that they just cannot help but embrace.

    I suspect they are going to try something else soon. Something like martial law, maybe? By losing (and they knew they were going to lose) they gave themselves a plausible-sounding reason to declare a dictatorship "to save democracy".

    while this would appeal to the playbook I think they seek to use it as a last ditch effort to build a breakwater for the red tsunami headed their way in November. I'm already seeing the ads for it (I somehow managed to get on a few donkey mailing lists).
