    Default The Democrats Just Had a Big Voting Rights Win

    Actually, that would be society, U.S. Constitutional law and Democracy had a big win against the enemy from within. Yet obviously Trumptards with their un-American tunnel vision focusing on the destructive and seditious act of anti-American repukes' efforts to destroy voting rights of society and Democracy from within and anything else of a civilized nature failed to pay attention that their devotion to repuke sewer slime is not a guaranteed win from hell. There is more than one way to get around the filibustering and seditious repuke war on voting rights and Democracy.


    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."

    Really? Chuckie just got bitch slapped twice on votes in the Senate whacking down his attempt to remove the filibuster and then on the Fuck the Voters act. The Democrats aren't getting their voter fraud bills out of Congress.

    At apparently being the devil's advocate, even the devil tends to outwit itself and also turning its sold-out suckers loose.

    How's this for facts: Democrats failed today at their attempt to cheat elections forevermore in America with ease.

    Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

    Sore loser.
    BREAKING: Schumer Suffers Defeat on Filibuster, as Manchin and Sinema Stand Firm

    I’m not sure what Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) thought he was going to get by pushing a vote on the Democratic effort to federalize elections (which they call ‘voting rights’) and on the filibuster.

    Schumer knew that he was likely to get a “no” on the filibuster from Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ). They’ve only been holding fast on the subject for months. Both also were very firm on the subject in speeches — Sinema earlier in the week and Manchin earlier on Wednesday. It wasn’t happening, they said.

    But Schumer decided to commit electoral suicide anyway, and he got it tonight.

    Here’s the vote.

    U.S. Senate FAILS to change filibuster rules, 52-48.

    60-vote threshold remains intact.

    The 48 Democrats who voted to blow up the Senate should be removed. They are shameful people.
