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.

I hope no one is surprised. Obama told us last week he was going to change the courts. No one listens.

Ok. So now we need to retake the Senate and Keep the House --- and then we'll be able to use this against the Dems. Of course, they'll be crying again about how 'unfair' it is.

Can not be done until we fix voter fraud.

Well, the Dictator Obozo told his minion Reid to forget about Congress and to pass this fundamental change to our Constitution.  So, he's doing a great bang up job to our Bill of Rights through regulations and executive orders.

We should find all of this interesting. 1963 and a great President, one of the last  real Americans of the Democrats as all went Marxist, was shot. Then, because LBJ never appointed another Attorney General, the MOB with the CIA took out Bobby! The videos were online proving this along with wire taps of the MOB from Detroit and Louisiana. "Get the head, meaning take out JFK, and you get the tail.", but it did not work! We should be aware that the unions have went Marxist for many years. They corrupted the last election sending bus loads to vote in other states!

Bobby was actually threatened with death by the Louisiana crime boss on film when he was before the Congressional Committee being investigated for many crimes which included murder. The Warren Commission either never got these FBI files and film, or they lied to us all. When we let these evil people get away with murder, especially our media, we place our self on the table for the death of America!

If I were GOP congressman and opposed this weasel eyed POS Harry Reid, I wouldn't stop with polite rhetoric.  I would challenge this moronic traitor with questions that would intimidate even him.  This POS needs to have a boot up his rectum right out the halls of Congress landing his sorry ass on the streets where the scumbag belongs.  Harry Reid!!!!   Sheeeeeeeeeeeeet!!

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.

Devastating.

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!
