Democrats Yammer On About “Killibuster” After Losing On “Voting Rights”, Admit What It’s All About

Democrats had to know that their control of elections by the federal government which benefits Democrats bill, HR1/S1, was doomed to be shot down by the fillibuster, right?

‘Killibuster’: Democratic angst grows as filibuster threatens agenda

Democrats are confronting the reality that absent any seismic shifts, their top agenda items face long, if not impossible, odds in the Senate amid growing frustration with the legislative filibuster.

After achieving a unified government for the first time since 2010, Democrats pledged to go “big’’ and “bold” after four years of the Trump administration. But they are watching as their wish list of bills runs straight into a familiar buzzsaw: the Senate’s own rulebook.

Now, Democrats are vowing that the fight over the filibuster isn’t over even as their two biggest holdouts to procedural changes — Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) — are showing no signs of backing down from their opposition to nixing the 60-vote requirement for most legislation to pass the Senate.

“The Democrats are going to have to talk about what the next path is,” said Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), who supports filibuster reform, added that Democrats needed to have an “open debate” after months of closed-door conversations and communicating through the media and op-eds.

“Let’s stop shadowboxing. Let’s really have an open debate about what it means to keep these rules in place,” Murphy said.

Sen. John Hickenlooper (D-Colo.) added that while there was a “risk” to changing the filibuster, “there’s risk if we let the status quo where nothing happens continue.”

This is the filibuster that they used hundreds of times in 2020, and the same in the other 3 years Trump was President. But, hey, I’ll tell you what, we can go back to the old type of filibuster where you have to just talk and talk and talk (like Democrat Robert “KKK” Byrd did when Dems tried to stop the Civil Rights Act) if we get rid of the 17 Amendment and go back to the original way of electing Senators, as the Constitution laid out, returning power back to the States and The People.

The growing Democratic angst comes after Republicans on Tuesday blocked a sweeping voting rights bill, known as the For the People Act, from even coming up for debate. The move was widely telegraphed, since GOP senators were in lockstep opposition to the bill long before the vote.

To advance legislation, Democrats have the near-impossible task of getting at least 10 Republican votes to pass some of their biggest priorities, including expanding gun background checks, LGBT protections, immigration reform, voting rights and raising the minimum wage.

This is the Democrats version of “democracy”: jamming legislation that would grab guns, codify allowing the gender confused into the bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers of real women, along with destroying women’s sports, massive amnesty, increasing unemployment by causing businesses to higher fewer people along with replacing workers with machines, and a bill that keeps Democrats in power

Via Brian Preston, who notes

The Democrats are acting like a questionable win at the presidential level in the midst of a historic pandemic, losing seats in the House, narrowly capturing the Senate in questionable special elections, and losing big at the state level, all constitute a mandate for them to obtain total power forever and to push a hard-left agenda that the American people don’t support.

It’s a power grab, period. And huge parts of it are unconstitutional. And they do not care.

    News flash: politicians are self-serving and corrupt with massive egos.

    I’m Shocked! Shocked, I tell you.

    I always thought it was funny how the news media always painted Trump as having a massive ego and being Narcissistic, but all those OTHER guys who wanted to rule the world from the White House were all coming from a “lifetime of service to the nation”.

    Of course politicians from the school board to the Federal govt, want to increase their personal power and use it to their own benefit.
