A Democrat-controlled
Senate Spells Doom
for Kamala Harris

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 1/7/2021 5:29:32 AM

Many in the Republican Party were dismayed to hear about the twin losses the GOP suffered in Georgia yesterday, which saw both Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue defeated. This leaves the U.S. Senate split 50/50 on both the Democratic and Republican side, with Vice President Kamala Harris being responsible for casting the tie-breaking vote. A split Senate is very rare, and indeed has only happened three times in the nation's history (snip) Kamala Harris and has effectively ended her career as a politician after her tenure as vice president is finished. (snip) Harris will be casting the tie-breaking vote on almost Every. Single. Bill. that comes into the Senate.

I understand what the author is stating. Problem is every tie she breaks will end up breaking us. So she might not end up as president. But she ends up dumping on us in the meantime and we will suffer long term. Giving every illegal citizenship and tearing down our border restrictrions to let in more dem voters gives them a very nice advantage. No, I don't want her to be president but with the dems having perfected the steal I would not count her out. Regardless she ends up a multi multimillionaire with a freezer full of chocolate ice cream like the CA buddy in the House.

No need to be a tie breaker. There will be enough RINOs to carry the day for all dem legislation!

IF we could have an accurate vote in 4 years, we could win our country back after they reveal what they plan for this country. But we will never have a vote that matters again. They will bury every vote fraud that is found, deep in the bowels of the FBI. Trump's biggest mistake was in not declassifying everything, and not firing Wray to get it all revealed. Epstein's videos will be destroyed now. Hillary will be protected from the Weiner laptop now. The Bidens won't worry about Hunter's laptop now. If Trump couldn't do it, no one else can. This is now a socialist country and succession is all that is left.

This is all well and good except for one thing. The author speaks as though the voters of this country will hold her to account for every tie she breaks and she will, therefore, never, ever become President. You forget that Dominion voting machines now do all of the voting for us, whether we like it or not, and the Commucrats don't have to care what WE think at all! The Courts won't protect us, the alleged conservatives in Congress sure won't. Anyone care to guess where that leaves us?

I don't think it will be a problem for her. She appears to be a person that will do what ever her superiors tell her to do, so she doesn't have to make tough decisions herself..

As if that is going to matter, come on man. She'll be a hero to the left and they have successfully demonstrated that they can eliminate the non-left from impacting elections; her path is gilded. Not to mention the fact that she need not win an election with Beijing Biden's rapid decline or sudden tragic encounter with a pillow.

You can no longer win an election against the Marxist Communist democrats as long as they have Dominion vote fraud rigging machines in every Marxist Communist democrat controlled precincts. Our courts are also filled with them ruling in every court case that no one has standing against them in our justice system. You can start getting use to Marxist Communist democrats and their comrades of the Marxist Communist democrats One World Government dictating what you will be allowed to do your life which is now no longer under control of Our Constitution and Bill of Rights. This COVID19 pandemic created by Chinese Communist Party in partnership with the Marxist Communist democrats and comrades has given everyone the opportunity to see for themselves what the Globalist Marxist Communist One World Government has in store for everyone. Thousands and thousands of eye witness sworn affidavits, hundreds of videos, security videos of the same ballots being put through Dominion vote machines over and over by five people for 2 and one half hours which would easily be over 200,000 fraud votes in that time frame. But the court judges say the presenters have no standing and dismiss the case. Proof positive that the Globalist Marxist Communist One World Government has control of our American government.

Our government has basically been a Democrat/RINO majority state for a long time. This merely puts an official seal on it. This is not the time to quietly go in a corner and rue and mourn. We must gather around the leader who is the focal point of our betrayal and see that he has all the support he and we need!

could be that the demcoms have a majority of anywhere from 6-10 because of the republicans who are so spineless (romney, collins, murkowski, mcconnell, thune, lee) to name only a few. these people are wrapped so tightly into the demcom tapestry that they are indistinguishable from the real demcoms. the real actor to watch in this one act play will be barry barak hussein soetoro obama obama because he is calling all of the shots and has complete control of the demcom party and, as in most communist controlled countries like china and ussr one is permitted only one indiscretion and then it's off to the re-education camp. Winston Smith tried to escape and was given some latitude but when they got tired of him, he is fully indoctrinated and submits. obama is a vicious, vicious individual and will crush anyone who attempts to undermine him or usurp him. he IS the anti-christ.

Silly logic. Watch rinos like Romney switch sides officially - for the good of the nation. In two years, when he will be primaried it will be too late. All senate rinos will switch. Why? Elections are no longer about citizens voting. The next election will not even be a real exercise. Those that tally and count the votes decide who is "elected". Romney, etal., senate rinos will have to learn to become marxists if they want to survive. Re-education of rino mentality is needed to keep their personal gravy train flowing. Indeed, it won't matter who gets the most votes in the next election - primaries will be a joke. Marxists will determine who is elected, who will get paid and who will be sacrificed politically - the people be damned.

Agree that the RINOs will give the Dems what they want, but I doubt they'll switch parties - the dems don't need them, and won't offer them anything because they can call their legislation "bipartisan" with RINO votes. The RINOs will quickly vote to approve Biden's cabinet, rationalizing their support as "the President deserves the cabinet he chooses" or "we need to put pettiness of the past four years behind us." The Dems will own the result, but it won't matter. Vote fraud has been institutionalized and the Californication of the United States will progress quickly. In two years, we won't recognize our country. I just hope I die of natural causes rather than starve to death after killing and eating my pets.

Nobody’s political career will be affected by anything they do — the voters are no longer involved. Whatever the dimocrat political machine wants, that’s what they’ll get. RINOs support this. There will be fake elections, just like Venezuela and Iraq under Saddam. But they will be just as fake as the MSM that enables it all.

Where has this guy been for the last two months? all his analysis might have been true if this were a normal electoral cycle, but it is not, by a long shot. First, KH will not be acting as VP for two years. She will occupy (and I use that word intentionally) the Oval Office long before that. Plus, the next "El Presidente" will be whoever Geroge Soros, his minions, and others of such ilk choose. That's because the last somewhat free election is now in the past. I suppose it's possible that her total incompetence will be exposed during the next 4 years, which might lead the powerbrokers to toss her in the trash heap then in exhange for someone just as extreme but more capable.

I can't take it anymore. I know I'm not getting smarter, but it sure seems like a lot of others are getting dumber by the hour. It is painful to come here, read the obvious, know the truth of all these Orwellian headlines and articles, and realize it won't change a thing. I'm sorry. I loved visiting lucianne every single day. Most posts have been an education or a confirmation that there are good, smart, brave people in the world and that many of them valued what the USA used to be before this coup. I'll still spend too much time here, but I have to wean myself and spend more time on educating myself on survival ideas and more importantly taking a long look at the oncoming end of my own existence. This has been an island of sanity in a world gone totally nuts and demonic.

January 6th’s events are being seized on as a game-changer, leading to calls to invoke the 25th Amendment, calls to impeach and remove President Trump, and discrediting Trump, his supporters, and conservatism. It has distracted attention from issues around the legitimacy of voting procedures in several key states, and guaranteed the Electoral College vote just before 4 AM that ratified Joe Biden’s and Kamala Harris’s inauguration as president and vice president. Applying the classic legal question “cui bono?” (“who benefits?”), it is clear that Democrats, anti-Trump establishment Republicans, the leftist media, and TDS sufferers all are victorious.

Beware, 75 million Trump voters.The media is calling for your ideological “cleansing” of Trump thought.In a column and tweet, ABC’s well-respected political director Rick Klein made the call after yesterday’s pro-Trump riots inside the halls of Congress.It is a sentiment throughout much of the political media and among Democrats who are also pointing an accusing finger at aides to President Trump who are resigning before their jobs end on Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day in 13 days. Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else.

Big tech has launched an unprecedented and coordinated cyber attack on President Donald Trump and his 74,000,000 voters. As this was happening — the GOP was dead silent.

Nearly every account that helped to promote the Stop the Steal rallies or challenge the election results were banned, including Ali Alexander, Michael Coudrey, Gen.
