Call for ‘Eliminating the Filibuster’

Original Article

Former President Barack Obama used his eulogy at the funeral of Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) to call for an end to the Senate filibuster to pass Democrats’ new legislation on voting reform.Obama said that Republicans had imitated Jim Crow-era restrictions on voting rights, which Lewis marched against, by passing state voter ID laws and other measures that conservatives argue prevent voter fraud.He urged Congress to pass a new version of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.“You want to honor John? Let’s honor him by revitalizing the law that he was willing to die for,” Obama said, to applause.

No, we don't want to honor John, especially when it makes it easier for democraps to stuff the ballot box...and remember obamazero, YOUR party was the anti Black/vote party way back before you got all the blacks onto your plantation by giving them a lot of freebies...

If you feel the self-righteous urge to preach to the mourners when you eulogize, you seek to honor yourself, not the corpse.

They are doing a Wellstone Lite funeral service for John Lewis. Instead of memorializing Lewis, they are politicizing.

Democrats have long loved or hated the filibuster depending on the outcome of the congressional election. If the Republicans hold the Senate, they will revere the filibuster as the last bulwark against tyranny by the majority.

As I have said in response to previous posts about voting...If voting is such a sacred part of our democracy, It would be treated as such by both parties. I just has to show an ID to buy lunch with my credit card. Why is it so much easier to keep income tax records accurate as compared to voter rolls or availability of polling locations (rhetorical)? Don’t believe it’s just a Democrat versus Republican issue...both parties game the issue.

Jeeezis how many more weeks will this John Lewis funeral go on? Im sick of it already. Obama forgot to mention the Democrat Party formed the KKK as the enforcement squad for their party's standards. They are the ones that killed freed black slaves on the way to vote because they freed slaves voted Republican. They are the party that formed the Confederate Army and designed the Confederate Flag and fought the Civil War to maintain and keep slavery a legal business and practice in the United States. Seems Obozo has forgotten his US history.

Obama Defends Mob Rule 5 replies

President Barack Obama’s address at the funeral of Representative John Lewis in Atlanta on Thursday, for the most part, was a moving tribute to a courageous pioneer in the civil rights movement. The total immersion in beatific praise that was accorded to the congressman throughout his prolonged itinerary between his physical death and actual burial was doubtless substantially deserved. (It does not allow for his dismissal of President Trump as “illegitimate,” and other reflections that were unseemly coming from a man so much praised for his graciousness and civility.)But embedded in Obama’s eloquent eulogy were reflections on the current political condition of the United States that were untrue

But the accident caused Mr. Nadler to be an hour late to the hearing.Watching Mr. Nadler during that hearing, which starred Attorney General William Barr, you might think he had hit his head in the accident. But, alas, Mr. Nadler was already that dumb. Even before the accident, he was severely damaged goods.That said, it is always unwise to underestimate Mr. Nadler.

CHICAGO — She’s too ambitious. She’s not apologetic enough. She should smile more. The debate over Joe Biden’s running mate has recently ticked through a familiar list of stereotypes about women in politics as the Democratic presidential candidate and his allies stumble through a search they had hoped would stand out for its inclusion and diversity. Instead, the vice presidential vetting has resurfaced internal party divisions between the old-guard establishment and a younger generation that’s more attuned to gender and racial biases and willing to speak out. Some contend it’s just more evidence of why Biden needs a woman on his ticket.

Venezuela has the world’s highest murder rate because the police there don’t stop murder unless it helps politics. So long as homocide doesn’t threaten the power or wealth of the governing party, murders are largely unsolved and are often committed by the very police who should be preventing them. As Business Insider reports, in Venezuela murders happen with “widespread impunity” because of “the complete [dysfunction] of the judicial system that allows for a significant degree of impunity for some, usually high-profile, offenders, and, as a result, disregard for the law, because it’s selectively applied.”

A disconnect appears to have arisen between the Food and Drug Administration and a sizable number of physicians when it comes to prescribing hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 patients.

Clips of the event went viral on social media before being blocked on some platforms as misinformation. At the root of the disconnect is a medical practice known as "off-label prescribing.""Let doctors be doctors," said Dr. Alieta Eck,

Most media outlets have ignored the revelations, which would be massive headline news if a past or present Republican president was implicated in the allegations. Twitter users jumped on the Epstein-Clinton connection, however, particularly in the context of the media trying to bury the story because it reflects poorly on Clinton specifically and Democrats generally.

So Lockhart’s recommendation to Biden? Don’t debate. Lockhart’s stated reason for a Biden refusal to debate is, no kidding, this: Whatever you do, don’t debate Trump. Trump has now made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post. It’s a fool’s errand to enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth.
