Once again the legacy liberal media is putting out fake news. I don’t see the facts of the issue being talked about even on relatively normal places like Fox News. This creates false hope in the people, and the next thing you see is a bunch of individuals on the TV crying. Thus once again it falls to alternative media to correct the record.
Democrats cannot stop any Trump Executive appointments.
Democrats cannot stop the repeal of Obama care.
These are called facts liberals claim they like, in truth liberals only like facts as long as they support their worldview. The reason they cannot stop any Trump Executive appointments is that President Barrack Hussein Obama and Senator Harry Reid changed the filibuster rules (called the nuclear option) when they were in charge. The filibuster rule was the rule that basically required 60 votes to move any Senate business forward. It was put into place to protect the opinions of the minority power. It had been in place since 1789.
“On November 21, 2013, the Senate voted 52-48, with all Republicans and 3 Democrats voting against, to eliminate the use of the filibuster against all executive branch nominees and judicial nominees other than to the Supreme Court. At the time of the vote there were 59 executive branch nominees and 17 judicial nominees awaiting confirmation.” More at Wikipedia.
The Republicans begged and pleaded with the Democrats not to change these long standing Senate rules when they were in the minority. Republicans promised that if Obama and the Democrats did, they would one day find themselves in the minority and will suffer like the Republicans have. That day has arrived.
President Obama put up some of the most globalist, anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Bill of Right (1A, 2A) federal judges that this nation has ever seen. When the Democrats held the majority, they could not get (approximately) 8 liberal Establishment Republican votes for these outrageous federal judges put forth by President Barrack Hussein Obama. That is how out of the mainstream they were.
To get around this filibuster rule that had been in place for over 200 years, Obama and Reid change those rules to require only a simple majority of senators or 51. President Obama then pushed through some of the most radical anti-American judges possible. These guys are lifetime appointments and are deciding federal cases. Thus the Republicans have two years to do the same thing. They need to shove in the most pro-Christian, pro-Western, pro-life, pro-Bill of Right (1A, 2A) judges they can find.
Each and every federal judge they appoint needs to be to the right of Clarence Thomas. This is simply to try and put things back in balance. And we need to work for a full 8 years of Senate and Presidential control so Republicans can stuff the federal judiciary with absolute Right Wing judges for 8 years. Yet that is not all that Senator Harry Reid and President Obama did. They did the following:
1. Remove filibuster for federal judges other than SCOTUS
2. Remove filibuster for all Executive appointments.
3. Changed the rules that the majority of Senators can change the rules with a simple majority.
Because Senator Harry Reid at the urging of President Obama changed the rules, now it only requires 51 votes for the Senate to confirm any Trump Executive appointment. The Republicans will have a 52-48 advantage in the Senate if the results of Louisiana’s runoff election on Dec. 10 happen as expected. The Democrats fired several liberal Republican Senators. Thus there are fewer “blue state” Republican Senators to defend. Thus there are very few who really have any motivation to piss off the Republican President and his administration. And please remember if it ends up 52 – 48, as I expect then the Republicans can loose 2 Republican Senators and the Vice President votes on any tie votes. That is flexibility that is also not being reported. Republicans have every motivation to work with the Republican President for this once in a century opportunity to actually pass things they have been promising.
The Democrats can and will ask a lot of crazy questions such as “…do you still support the Klan Jeff Sessions?” They can leak information to the lying liberal legacy news, they can act a fool and do things like walk out. However, they do not have the actual power to stop people like Senator Jeff Sessions from becoming Attorney General (AG). Only spineless liberal Establishment Republicans have that power.
Democrats cannot stop it. They can only try and pressure weak-kneed Establishment Republicans (at the local and federal level) from doing what they promised. We the “patriot, libertarian, tea party, Trump” Republicans and other “true believers” remain committed to waging war on liberal Establishment Republicans who fight against the will of the people who put them into office in the next primary season. We do not often win, but … we sometimes do. We watch, and we wait. We understand this is a long war, not a quick battle.
The reason Democrats cannot stop the repeal of Obama care is that the repeal of Obama care will be passed through the “budget reconciliation” process. By passing a budget which only requires a simple majority 51 votes in the Senate, the two houses can “reconcile” that bill. No Democrat is expected to support the rolling back federal government control socialized medicine, and none will be required. Remember it was the traitor Republican Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania who switched his party from Republican to Democrat that gave the Democrats 60 votes to pass Obamacare. Thank you to the Patriots of Pennsylvania who fired him at the first opportunity.
Only Republican Senators can stop Trump’s Executive appointments and most likely they really don’t want to pick that fight. This is once in a century opportunity to get their priorities passed. A great way to stop that dead in its tracks is to piss off the incoming President. Also they are motivated to demonstrate to their Democratic Senator peers the terrible precedent they caused. Thus I predict all of the people he is nominating including anti-illegal immigration Senator Sessions will be confirmed. All of these protest are at the thought of President Trump. Wait until he actually starts enacting his agenda. Then you will see the wheels come off, and that is what it is going to take. We will not make it, if we are not willing to get in the streets also. When they radical, flag burning, pro-illegal immigration groups start doing their sit-ins and other “actions”, please remember this video.
