Dems Scheme for Nuking Filibuster Fails Again, as Sen. Sinema Joins Manchin to Block It

We’ve covered the left’s scheme to destroy our elections by passing a set of radical “voting rights” bills. These bills would rip election management from our states and hand it over to our corrupt, D.C. swamp. The bills would make stopping voter fraud impossible, giving crooked Democrats a major advantage. But in order to make this dictatorship dream a reality, they had to get it passed in the Senate.

That meant preventing Republicans from checking their madness.

The only way that would be possible is if Democrats erased the filibuster. This rule requires 60 votes for a bill to pass out of debate and to a final vote. It is a safeguard, giving the minority party a voice in the Senate. Democrats have used this for decades to block bills they did not like. But, with the smallest majority in the Senate ever, they want to kill this rule so they can pass extreme measures.

Moderate Sen. Joe Manchin has stood up to Chuck Schumer, refusing to support this move. And now, yet another moderate is reaffirming her stance.

Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema affirmed Thursday that she will not vote in favor of abolishing the legislative filibuster, dealing a blow to Democratic leadership’s attempt to pass a series of sweeping election reform bills.

“There’s no need for me to restate my longstanding support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation. There’s no need for me to restate its role in protecting our country from wild reversals of federal policy,” said Sinema. [Source: Just the News]

Are Democrats just stupid or do they need things hammered into their heads? They tried to kill the filibuster last year, over this and other bogus legislation. But the very same moderates refused to go along with their scheme, including Kyrsten Sinema. Why they thought now, in 2022, they’d suddenly change their opinion is beyond me. Schumer, a man who once railed against ending the filibuster, tried to force the issue by starting debate over killing it this month.

But the very same Democrats who opposed it last year opposed it this year. It seems Chuck and his cronies aren’t getting the memo. There are still a few Democrats in the Senate smart enough to fear nuking this rule. They know that if they do it now, then the next time Republicans get the majority, all bets are off. They will be able to pass whatever bills they want, without Democrat input.

Do liberals really want that kind of extreme government? I doubt it. But all Schumer, Biden, and Pelosi can see is the prospect of legalizing voter fraud. And they don’t realize they are so close to destroying the very democracy they claim to support. The only way we can protect it is to make sure Democrats don’t come this close again.

The 2022 midterms can’t come fast enough, huh?
