“The Greatest Dangers Of The American Republics Proceed From The Unlimited Power Of The Majority” – Alexis de Toqueville, March 15, 1789
Democrats and their communist allies want to completely dismantle the filibuster, a.k.a. impose the “Nuclear Option”, which would empower them to pass crony-enriching, small-business killing, voter-fraud enabling legislation. The blurred line between democrat policy and communist policy has all but been erased.
Currently, Filibuster holdouts Democratic Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.Va) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) are under intense pressure to cave to the mob, as well as to endorse the $15 minimum wage, which has been shown repeatedly to disproportionately hurt small businesses and poor people. A recent study (go to page eight) by the Congressional Budget Office predicts that “employment would be reduced by 1.4 million workers” and the cost of products would increase, which hurts poor people, as well.
The CPUSA is also a strong supporter of the $15 minimum wage, a long-time communist initiative. Communists and their allies understand that the $15 minimum wage would hurt poor people, which is precisely why they promote it. If poor people suffer, they will blame “capitalism,” which could open the door for people to accept communism.
An article at the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) publication “People’s World” headlined “For the sake of democracy, kill off the Senate filibuster,” communist leader John Bachtell argues that passing radical legislation such as the deceptively-named “For the People Act”, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and getting D.C. statehood, “is contingent on either reforming or eliminating the Senate filibuster rule to allow simple majority votes.”
Contrast the communist leader’s article with Hillary Clinton’s ally Indivisible, who is pushing their followers to write letters to the editors of their local papers on three big issues: The Filibuster, the “For the People Act,” and D.C. Statehood. Their tool is very sophisticated; one can use a pre-written letter to add their name to automatically-populated local papers with just a few clicks. Citizens who may read the letters in their local newspapers would have no idea that the “authors” did not even write them, making it appear that there is a groundswell of support for leftist policies.
In a mass email sent to their followers on Friday, Indivisible writes in part:
LTEs [Letter to the Editor] are a great tool for building pressure on your members of Congress — senators, representatives, and their staffs pay close attention to media coverage in their states and districts to help monitor constituent interests and prioritize work.
Legislation such as the “Green New Deal” and the “For the People Act of 2021” are being shoved down the throats of Americans, many of whom are busy living their lives as the federal government busily takes away their rights. It should be noted that as installed puppet Joe Biden signs executive orders with abandon, he is in effect creating his own “Green New Deal” legislation without the filibuster to stop him.
Other prominent leftists are openly calling to dismantle the Filibuster
MoveOn.org SpokesSocialist and former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich:
Rep. Barbara Lee, described by filmmaker Trevor Loudon as “lifelong communist posing as a liberal democrat”:
Democrats Threatened to Shut Down the Government in 2005 to Preserve the Filibuster
Former President Obama joined his colleagues in 2005 as Democrats heartily fought for the filibuster and even threatened to “shut down all Senate operations if [then-GOP Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist] exercised the nuclear option.” Then-Senator Obama stated in 2005 that “the Founding Fathers established the filibuster as a means of protecting the minority from the tyranny of the majority”.
Back in July, however, Obama referred to the filibuster as a “Jim Crow relic.” RAIR Foundation USA reported that his reference “foreshadowed the fight to come,” and indeed, the fight is here.
The mere threat of dismantling the filibuster during the George W. Bush administration (as Democrats unceasingly used the filibuster to block Bush nominees) caused intense rage and pledges of support for the filibuster in 2005. “The filibuster is one of the only ways to encourage genuine bipartisan cooperation and compromise on important issues that come before the Senate,” wrote the Left-wing group Center for American Progress.
“If Republicans fulfill their threat to overturn the historic role of the filibuster in order to ram the Bush administration’s nominees through, they will be inviting all-out warfare and perhaps an effective shutdown of Congress,” anguished the New York Times in a 2005 editorial “The Senate on the Brink”. But Left-wing publications such as the New York Times change their position on the filibuster depending on whether or not the filibuster will thwart the leftist agenda.
In 1995, the same New York Times complained that “the Republican minority invoked an endless string of filibusters to frustrate the will of the majority” and referred to the filibuster as an “archaic rule that frustrates democracy and serves no useful purpose.”
Obviously, the cowards in the Republican party are ill-equipped to fight the democrats. If the filibuster is effectively destroyed, it will be the end of the Republic.
