(PresidentialInsider.com)- Democrats have been pushing for some time now to remove the Senate a filibuster, a process that allows legislators to block legislation unless it has the support of 60 members of the Senate. And as Senate Democrats have repeatedly failed to win over moderates within their own party, who recognize the importance of the filibuster in preventing the passing of extremist legislation, it looks as though President Biden thinks it’s time to throw his weight behind the idea.
In a speech in Georgia on Tuesday, President Biden endorsed the anti-democratic idea of allowing legislation to be passed by a simple majority vote in the Senate – paving the way for less bipartisanship and allowing laws to be radically and easily changed potentially every two years.
“I believe that the threat to our democracy is so grave that we must find a way to pass these voting rights bills, debate them, vote, let the majority prevail,” the president said.
His reference to “voting rights bills” was disingenuous, as the president was referring to legislation that would make it easier for illegal aliens to vote. It looks as though the Democrats are desperate to implement a permanent ruling Democratic majority through the use of illegal votes, granting a path to citizenship to tens of millions of illegal aliens, and removing the filibuster so that they can pass extremist legislation without the support of some Republicans.
“And if that bare minimum is blocked, we have no option but to change the Senate rules including getting rid of the filibuster for this,” Biden added.
Is he the most extreme president in recent American history? It certainly looks as though he is. Imagine if former President Donald Trump had endorsed removing the filibuster to implement a permanent ruling Republican majority.
The press would go insane.
Biden went on to disingenuously claim that he is “making it clear to protect our democracy” to change the Senate rules to “prevent a minority of senators from blocking action on voting rights.”
He’s talking about Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia – why didn’t he just mention him by name?
Come on, Joe. Admit it. You’re mad that one of your own refuses to throw his weight behind your extremist policy agenda.
