Closing Thought–07Jun21

Wrong! Wrong!

From the “Files Of Can’t Fix Stupid”

It seems that the idiots on the Right have open mouth and inserted foot yet again.

This time it is a Congresswoman from Florida, Rep. Salazar……and of course it is the typical lie that is liberally spread by most GOPers……

With Republicans recently blaming the rise of antisemitic attacks on progressives’ criticism of Israel, one GOP congresswoman took it to a whole new level on Thursday night.

According to Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar (R-FL), if you happen to be a socialist or communist, then you are, by default, anti-Jewish.

Amid an alarming rise in antisemitic attacks, especially in the wake of the 11-day Hamas-Israel war, Vox writer Zack Beauchamp wrote an in-depth piece looking into the causes behind the increase in violence against American Jews. Though the article—written by a Jew—was incredibly nuanced and balanced, it was relentlessly mocked by conservatives over its sub-headline: “Violent anti-Semitism spiked in America during the Israel-Hamas war. And we don’t know why.”

During Thursday’s broadcast of Fox News Primetime, guest host Ben Domenech continued the network’s mockery over the piece and brought on Salazar to discuss it at length. At the same time, it appears neither party got past the article’s secondary title.

Her statement is pure bullsh*t!

Does she know who Marx was?  How about Trotsky?

Nothing could be further from the truth…..because one may be a Socialist does not make them antisemitic….but this is a lie that has lots of legs when you tell it to morons.

Just the GOPers resorting to lies and misinformation and their loyal eat the manure and believes it is sirloin.

This Filibuster Bullsh*t

Have you heard the word?

And that word is…..FILIBUSTER

The media has a new fixation…..the proposed fight over the ‘filibuster’….that super majority rule in the Senate…….

We have two back bench Dems in the Senate that are making sure that all attention is leveled on them…..Sen. Machin and Sen. Sinema……without this attention they would return to being a non-productive member of the Senate.

Sinema recently made the statement that the Founders created the filibuster to protect the minority…..first it is BS the idea of a filibuster is nowhere in the Constitution….the Founders did not foresee the rise of the political parties……

My suggestion is these political slugs should read the document that they use a political prop…..I can help……

Then there is addendum put in the Constitution to appease the whiny states like Virginia….the Bill of Rights…..

For Christ sake…read the document!

The first so-called filibuster was used in 1837 (way after the ratification of the Constitution)….the filibuster arose from a loophole…..

The loophole that permits a senator’s right to speak endlessly on the senate floor dates to Vice President Aaron Burr, who declared in 1805 that the Senate need not be burdened by too many procedural rules. Back then a process to end debate on legislation, known as the “previous question” motion, was rarely used, so upon Burr’s recommendation, the senate dropped it in 1806.

Minority party senators soon figured out that talking endlessly on the Senate floor could prolong debate indefinitely and gum up progress on a bill or nomination. The first successful filibuster was recorded in 1837, when a group of Whig senators who opposed President Andrew Jackson filibustered to prevent Jackson’s allies from expunging a resolution of censure against him.

Basically Aaron Burr, the VP at the time, is believed to be the father of the filibuster….

Under original Senate rules, cutting off debate required a motion that passed with a simple majority. But in 1806, after Vice President Aaron Burr argued that the rule was redundant, the Senate stopped using the motion.

Rarely has this technique of delay has ever ended well…..

If this country is ever to move forward then it is time for this delaying tactic to go the way of the do-do.

I these parasites cannot overturn this piece of manure…then at least be accurate and read the Constitution!

Are Voting Rights A Dead Issue?

With all the voter suppression tactics making the rounds in most states….there was hope to put the brakes on this suppression but one coward in the Senate will do mall he can to help the GOP take away your right to vote…..that coward is Manchin.

A key Democratic senator says he will not vote for the largest overhaul of US election law in a generation, leaving no path forward for legislation that his party and the White House have portrayed as crucial for protecting access to the ballot. “Voting and election reform that is done in a partisan manner will all but ensure partisan divisions continue to deepen,” Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia wrote in the Charleston Gazette-Mail. He wrote that failure to bring together both parties on voting legislation would “risk further dividing and destroying the republic we swore to protect and defend as elected officials.” Among dozens of other provisions, it would require states to offer 15 days of early voting and allow no-excuse absentee balloting, the AP reports

Democrats have pushed the legislation as the antidote to a wave of restrictive state voting laws, many inspired by former President Trump’s claims of fraud in his 2020 loss. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has pledged to bring the election bill to a vote the week of June 21. But without Manchin’s support, the bill has no chance of advancing because Republicans are united against it. In appearances on Sunday news shows, Manchin stressed his reasons for opposing the bill, including his view that it is too broad. “I think it’s the wrong piece of legislation to bring our country together and unite our country and I’m not supporting that because I think it would divide us further,” Manchin said. He added that lawmakers should instead focus on revitalizing the landmark Voting Rights Act, which was weakened by a Supreme Court decision in 2013.

How does voter protection “further divide the country”?

This back bencher has his moment to shine and he is playing it for all it is worth……a minor Senator has the power to hold up the protection of your right to vote…..

How much does it pay to betray the people of the United States?

He is a political slug that deserves ridicule.

Centrists are the bane of progress…..they the bane of progress….Dems cling to a long dead issue of bi-partisanship…..instead of moving the country forward they remain in the past and deluding themselves continuously.

Kinda pathetic!

If Manchin has his way then kiss your vote good-bye.
