Cruz: Democrats are attempting to completely scrap the filibuster

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) stated in a Fox News interview on Wednesday that proposals for a talking filibuster are “a fancy way of saying ‘end the filibuster,'” making it easier for Senate Democrats to pass legislation with only a simple majority.

“When the person stops talking, then they will pass their radical agenda through,” Cruz noted.

I hope they don’t do that. I hope they don’t play those kind of games. If they do, I think you can expect Republicans doing everything humanly possible to fight, but if they can hold their 50 votes, that will be a very, very dangerous time for our nation.

The comments came during Fox News Primetime, responding to current Senate Democrat plans to support a talking filibuster. The proposed change would allow Democrats to preserve the current filibuster, yet also work around it.

President Joe Biden stated in an interview on Tuesday he is in favor of the talking filibuster change.

“You have to do what it used to be when I first got to the Senate, back in the old days. You had to stand up and command the floor, you had to keep talking … so you’ve got to work for the filibuster,” he said.

Vice President Kamala Harris also supports the change. Fox News reported, “Harris’ office said that the vice president is aligned with President Biden on the issue of the filibuster.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) agrees with Cruz on the issue.

“So let me say this very clearly for all 99 of my colleagues. Nobody serving in this chamber can even begin to imagine what a completely scorched-earth Senate would look like,” McConnell said.

“None of us have served one minute in a Senate that was completely drained of comity and consent. This is an institution that requires unanimous consent to turn the lights on before noon, to proceed with a garden-variety floor speech.”

IT’s TIME TO DITCH THE WITCH, NANCY PELOSI!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP in DC and DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ABUSE OF POWER!

People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

You are absolutely right we Republicans have to start calling Members of the Senate and House and make them aware we are not happy and want to support them. At least verbally, some of us depending on Social Security can’t be donating all the time!!!

I think we should fight to place these people in jail for treason and crimes against our country . We have the power as a whole to end this war on America . If we all had a fleet of good lawyers that could make us heard we could end this in maybe a few months and place all of them in jail and then make a example out of these people . Our rep. in Washington are not doing nothing like they have done for years . The crimes they have done if we can uncover will lead us to the death penalty for all of that is involved but that is to good for them. They have to pay dearly for what they have done .We should strip them down to nothing and place them in a place where they are isolated for the rest of their lives.

I am all in for a coûp d’etat…. Pelosi, Harris and Biden have gone too far! President Trump should be able to take over the presidency, now that it’s been found that the election was fraudulent!

I am in for a coup d’etat. This is a stolen election engineered by Nancy Pelosi. I would like to see her hang as Marie Antoinette who stated, ” Let them eat cake if they do not have bread.” That is what Nancy Pelosi is telling the American people, “The hell with you”.
She only wants power as Putin, Chi and all the dictators. She is a dictator and should be removed immediately from office. Pelosi stirred the brew, like all witches, for the Jan. 6th break in at the Capitol. She was warned by the FBI but set a trap for impeachment again against Pres. Trump. She must me impeached and removed as head of the House of Rep. Pelosi is “AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE OF THE US”. She belongs in jail forever. Even that is too good for her. Corruption is her name.

Ilene, i have to say i agree, with you, IT”S time our military “SO CALLED GENERALS” open their eyes. Too many of us ‘OATH” TAKERS” , have given our young life’s for this country, some paid all, some are here to “continue the fight” they gave all for. The military has to attack with a coupe de”tat, and save this country from the communist leaders that have infiltrated our government for almost the last 50 years, and now we see them coming out of the “closet”, unashamed, for what they have done to America over those years. NOW IS THE TIME, CAN’T WAIT NO LONGER, WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE are not blind, or stupid, BUT AMERICAN citizens need to “standup and be heard”, if you sit by and remain silent, you are the “cause” for what you see happening everyday. For instance, TODAY the Pres and VP will go to GEORGIA because of the shooting (to fan the flames for their “gun” control/// instead the NEWS MEDIA will not get in on this and remind the people that there are thousands of children being “crated” because of there stupid policies on illegal immigration. In fact, the news ask the question to the President, and he said NO I HAVE NO PPLANS TO VISIT THE BOARDER? THIS CRAP HAS TO CEASE. COME ON GENERALS, get you head out of the sand, i don’t care if you didn’t like TRUMP , at least we didn’t have these crisis going on in his administration IN THE FIRST 90 days…. WE , THE PEOPLE, have lost faith in our government and congress and senate. SOMEONE HAS TO TAKE CHARGE?????????

Dems have all the power now to push anything thru the white house. Just put a pen in king bidens hand and he will make it so. No need for any other part of the white house. All others can go home chill for 4 yrs. Or longer. I think we will be in this for as long as they use their democratic voting machines. With dems starting out with 35000 votes put in the machines how can they lose.

Filibuster was never eliminated in 2019, Republicans had the majority in the Senate and were able to “appoint” all Republican nominees selected by President Donald Trump all legally chosen according to the “Constitution” of the US.

According to a new press release, film producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney will be soon releasing a film exposing President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden for his “wild life and dodgy business dealings.” The film, which is titled “My Son Hunter” and will feature Hunter Biden’s drug abuse, alcohol abuse and corrupt business dealings. “The media and big tech covered up the bombshell report by The New York Post that showed the depth of corruption in the Biden family,” McAleer said in a statement. “The truth deserves to be told and it needs to be seen by as many people as possible. An entertaining and enjoyable movie is the best way to tell the story of the Biden family’s corruption and to ensure as many people are educated about this as possible. If the media won’t do their jobs, we’ll do it for them.”

Purge at pentagon, military, federal building.
Big tech purging businesses, demanding alligance to nazi democrat party, forcing smaller businesses to purge real patriots….

We patriots better get busy doing something other than talking! What about a convention of states? What about demanding Piglosi be thrown out of congress for abuse of power, dereliction of duty, usurping presidential power, insider trading and a long laundry list of unconstitutional legislation! She is the enemy in the house, a clear and present danger to our country! She must be thrown out of congress ASAP!
