Senate votes to limit filibuster after Reid goes nuclear

The Senate voted Thursday to change its rules to prevent the minority party from filibustering any nominations other than nods to the Supreme Court.

The change was approved after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) triggered the “nuclear option,” which allows a change to Senate rules by majority vote.

The 52-48 vote dramatically changes the rules of the Senate and limits the minority party's ability to prevent confirmation of presidential nominees. Sens. Carl Levin (Mich.), Mark Pryor (Ark.) and Joe Manchin (W.Va.) were the only Democrats to vote against Reid's rules change.

It will allow all three of President Obama's nominees to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to go forward, as well as his nomination of Rep. Mel Watt to lead a housing regulatory agency.

We the people of Nevada just gave Harry 6 more years to work at taking down America.  And I must say he is doing a fine job..

sure wish reid would STFU and go away!

Harry Reid constantly exemplifies the power hungry and blatant corruption that has engulfed our government! He and his ilk, regardless of party, are guilty of treason against our Constitution and our country.

Agreed and how much longer will we tolerate this?

HARRY REID REALLY NEEDS TO GO,,,,I hope the people of Nevada love what harry reid has done to them,,,,but I guess casinos are exempt from obamacare...

I can say this, if these communist continue their anti American activities, it will be up to the American people to rid ourselves of these domestic enemies our Founding Fathers spoke about. And Nevada can do better without Harry Reid. Get rid of him! is now up to We, the People.....and specifically authorized in the Declaration of Independence...mid-way down in 2nd paragraph.

Where in the Constitution does it authorize a 'nuclear option'?


It may not be in there but they don't go by the constitution anyway. They all need to be removed.

More they can have an up or down vote!    If they voted for the nuclear option, they will vote for everything the dictator in chief wants.  There are just too many stupid people in this country that keep voting these socialists in!  And it is impossible to educate them!  Adding 40 million illegals, or democrats, will end this country for sure!  

Tyranny at it's finest. Harry Reid is causing more destruction for the United States. Harry Reid should be destroyed! He is a traitor to the United States of America and the United States Constitution.

I agree with your thoughts and statements.

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
