‘Tears In Their Eyes!’: Pelosi Goes
Ballistic Over Opposition To Filibuster
Change, Dems’ Voting Agenda

Original Article

Posted By: Come And Take It, 1/18/2022 9:04:10 AM

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) went off on the GOP and moderate Democrat senators who are standing in the way of the Democrats’ radical voting agenda, claiming opponents of the legislation and a change to filibuster rules are “dishonoring” the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and making our deceased forefathers and leaders like MLK and President Abraham Lincoln have “tears in their eyes,” unless the bills are passed.


Teef-sucking Nanzi apparently started drinking about 7am yesterday. She was completely unhinged pimping for voter fraud, using MLK as the bludgeon to shame her fellow white guilt liberals. It was a theme among the commies all day.

Hey Nanzi - does "G.F.Y" mean the same thing to you that it does to me?

Nasty also said that the filibuster should be ended because it was not in the Constitution. Well, Nasty, neither is federal control of elections. In fact, the Founding Fathers were very specific that elections should be controlled by each individual state. But you already knew that, didn’t you? You’re just counting on the ignorance of your voters to jam this through. Oh, one more thing - our democracy is not in any danger because, as you also well know, America is not a democracy. By “democracy” you mean Democratic Party power. But keep ranting - all you’re doing is stiffening the spines of those who oppose you and your power-at-all-costs agenda.

Let me understand this. Pelosi is accusing Senators Manchin and Sinema of being against democracy because they will vote for or against issues according to desires of the majority of the voters of their respective states.

Not to mention that both those august figures, Lincoln and King would have wanted fair, Constitutional elections with ALL voters properly identified and verified, and run by the individual states and NOT wanted Nanzi's federally controlled and unverifiable illegal voting and illegal vote counting machine. I don't know if Nanzi and her ilk, like Schumer (and nearly all the dems and many republicans) actually do not know what these great historical figures they 'quote' really believed, and say the crap they do through pure ignorance.... Ir if they know it, but say it anyway just hoping that the people they are talking to are themselves completely ignorant.

If I were Manchin and Sineima I would sit there and quietly listen to the Witch Screech, then I would get up, walk over to her Podium and hand her a letter of resignation from the Democrat Party. Then walk out of the Room and join the Republicans in the Senate who will treat them with the Respect the deserve. This would put an end to all of the fighting for the rest of Biden's term. He would literally be a very wounded Duck and maybe those in the Democrat Congress would actually see that their Woke Agenda isn't going anywhere, so therefore they would work on things like fixing Streets and opening up our Oil and Gas again! One can only wish.....

The overwhelming majority of Senate Democrats will soon move to eliminate the filibuster -- which has protected the rights of the chamber’s minority for more than a century – because they feel the need to pass ‘voting rights legislation’ is just too intense to be blocked by the 60-vote threshold. By merging several pieces of legislation into one mega-bill and calling it the ‘Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act,’ Democrats are trying to scare people into believing that if the bill doesn’t pass, they will lose their right to vote.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer will propose a talking filibuster in an attempt to persuade Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., to change Senate rules and allow a vote on the Democratic-led effort to overhaul the U.S. election system. "If the Republicans block cloture on the legislation before us, I will put forward a proposal to change the rules to allow for a talking filibuster on this legislation," the New York Democrat said Tuesday after a meeting with Senate Democrats to discuss a path forward for the legislation. "Historically, changes to the Senate rules have been necessary to adapt to a change circumstances."

Sinema, an Arizona centrist who has largely remained silent as Democrats have struggled to round up support for the change, will make it impossible for the party to pass partisan voting overhaul bills with the simple majority they sought. “Eliminating the 60-vote threshold will simply guarantee that we lose a critical tool that we need to safeguard our democracy from threats in the years to come,” Sinema said.

Located in Ordos in the coal-rich northwestern region of Inner Mongolia, the plant will eventually have four generating units, and is designed to deliver power to the eastern coastal Shandong province via a long-distance ultra-high voltage grid. China is responsible for more than half of global coal-fired power generation and is expected to see a 9% year-on-year increase in 2021, an International Energy Agency report published this month said.  CORRECTION*

The federal government will let teens drive transports throughout the nation in a move it hopes will alleviate the supply chain crisis—but the initiative is being panned by critics who fear it could lead to disaster. The new apprenticeship program deviates from current law—which requires truckers crossing state lines to be at least 21 years old—by allowing 18- to 20-year-old drivers to travel beyond their home states.(Snip)But safety advocates say the program runs counter to data showing that younger drivers get in more crashes than older ones. They say it's unwise to let teenage drivers be responsible for rigs that can weigh 80,000 pounds
