Wrong about filibuster with Blackford, another writer, McConnell

Linda Blackford has not apologized for her outward hatred of conservatives. If you vote for the Senator, we’re “stupid.” I don’t know if it’s a compliment or a “bargain”. Probably a bargain. But I take it as a compliment because Senator has won 58 percent of McGrath’s 38 percent, or 1,233,315 popularity votes against 816,257 McGrath voters.

Her voice through HL is often read as a comedy relief by conservatives, given the stress of having a “note card” or a president who can’t think or speak without telling what and when the prompter says. .. Vice President Kamala Harris “embraces” when asked when to visit the border. Tens of thousands of children stuck at the border can’t laugh at once.

Blackford seems to think McConnell got a huge sum of money from the company, but before criticizing him, she needs to do some research. The Center for Responsive Politics shows through www.opensecrets.org that “DARK MONEY” has donated more than $ 1 billion in 2020, about $ 400 million to the Democratic Party and $ 200 million to the Republican Party.

These companies are not important in expecting their “contribution.” All of this can be seen in the explosive growth of executive orders from the White House (more than 35 so far). The most confused are the Pentagon and New York City. Who benefits from donations from these campaigns? Indeed, not Senator McConnell, Senator Rand Paul, Congressman Kentucky, Andy Barr, Jamie Comer, Thomas Massie, Hal Rogers, or Brett Guthrie. It’s fun to see Pelosi, Schumer, and Pusaki come back to “protect” the White House’s actions, but “action” may not be the correct verb. There is really no direction or action plan from the White House. It’s just words that you just read and aren’t clearly understood.

More recently, there is the word “read” by the president, who calls Georgia’s voting law the “Jim Crow” law. I hope someone explains to the president that the Jim Crow law is due to Southern Democrats’ refusal to recognize human equality (Strom Thurmond and Robert Byrd come to mind). ). These laws were endorsed by Plessy v. Ferguson in 1896 and brought about the “separate but equal” doctrine. Thurgood Marshall was disputed in the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court in 1954, and although separated, the same ruling did not work. It was declared unconstitutional by the court.

When our president condemns the “Jim Crow” law, he often includes his support for the “little man.” Our president claims to be a “blue-collar union man from Scranton,” but on his first day in office he abandoned the work of the union of 11,000 people in the pipeline. Stopped hydraulic fracturing and drilling on federal lands that required hundreds of thousands of jobs, and stopped small and medium-sized businesses of small men across many states.

Now enter Aiden O’Brien His attack To Senator McConnell who wanted to support filibuster in the Senate. O’Brien was widely used by Democrats to delay the “watering” of major civil rights laws in the 1950s, and by Democrats to thwart civil rights laws in the 1960s. I think I couldn’t tell you that. He also needs to understand that the Democratic Party used more than 337 filibusters in 2020 and the Republican Party used it once in 2020. O’Brien recommends investigating filibuster before claiming that the use of filibuster reduces voting rights. This is a deliberate restraint on majority voting and has been in place since the 1800s.

I also remember Harry Reid changing the rules of the Senate. And how did it work?
