Democrats’ Cheat-by-Mail Bill Gets Dashed on the Rocks by Kyrsten Sinema
One of the worst pieces of legislation for America that the Democrats have pushed all year long is the so-called “Voting Rights Act.” This is the bill that would solidify universal cheat-by-mail voting in federal law, while simultaneously eliminating all state-level voter ID laws.
Democrats have known for the past 20 years that they are demographically doomed as a political party unless they do two things: Bring in ringers from foreign countries to replace the American population and loosen voting laws so they can brazenly cheat and steal elections. But less than 24 hours after announcing that they were dropping the Build Back Better bill to focus on voting “rights,” the Voting Rights Act has been nuked from orbit.
Maybe the Democrats knew the Voting Rights Act was doomed from the start. After all, the White House put Kamala Harris in charge of whipping votes for it in Congress. If you want something to wither and die on the vine, just put it under the watchful supervision of Kamala Harris. Works every time!
After spending all year telling us that Planet Earth will die without the passage of Joe Bidens’ Build Back Better infrastructure bill (with no infrastructure projects in it), the Democrats finally dropped it this past week. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) wouldn’t budge on the fact that the bill is way too expensive and doesn’t have any infrastructure in it. I guess credit where credit is due, right?
Polling for 2022 is so bad that the Democrats have now ditched the entire Biden agenda for the rest of the year. No amnesty bill will pass. No gun control bill will pass. No “infrastructure” bill. And you poor suckers who thought that Joe Biden was going to forgive your student loans?
LOL! You thought that the guy who worked as a shill for the credit card companies during his 40 years in the Senate was going to discharge your student loans? Really? But thanks for voting for Joe anyway. Maybe next time!
Knowing that almost their entire legislative agenda is dead in the water, Democrats pivoted to drastically changing the voting laws so that they can never lose any election, ever again. And all they’ll have to do to make this happen is abolish the filibuster in the Senate. With that accomplished, they’d just need 51 votes to pass universal cheat-by-mail instead of 60.
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) has turned out to be completely unwilling to abolish the filibuster. Which means the Democrats now have no hope whatsoever of passing universal cheat-by-mail. Less than 24 hours after announcing their big pivot to “voting rights,” the Voting Rights Act is dead in the water.
According to Sinema’s spokesman:
“She [Sinema] continues to support the Senate’s 60-vote threshold, to protect the country from repeated radical reversals in federal policy which would cement uncertainty, deepen divisions, and further erode Americans’ confidence in our government.”
I can’t even begin to guess what Sinema’s real motivations are here. Before conservatives get too moonie-eyed over the Arizona freshman Senator, they should take a look at her track record when she was in the Arizona state legislature. She is a ruthless political operator who only looks out for herself, and she’s a genuine communist progressive. Sinema actually supports all of the provisions in the so-called “Voting Rights Act.” She’s not up for reelection until 2024, so it’s not like she’s in danger of losing her seat next year if she were to vote for the bill.
So, where does Kyrsten Sinema’s newfound respect for the filibuster come from?
Who knows? But it’s a win and we should take it. Maybe she’s one of those rare Democrats who realizes that with their razor-thin 50+Kamala majority in the Senate that things could quickly turn around after next year, and that Republicans would be able to wreak havoc by turning the Democrats’ own rules against them.
In the meantime, we’ve been given a wonderful Christmas gift. Joe Biden’s first (stolen) year in office will pass with the Democrats not having a single legislative accomplishment to show for it. No Voting Rights Act, no Build Back Better, no amnesty, no gun control. He’s got zilch! And that’s great news for America.
