The Democrat Party is in disarray.
Things are about to get very ugly on the left.
And that’s because this word just started a civil war in the Democrat Party.
Joe Biden planned one last-ditch effort to convince Senate Democrats to eliminate the legislative filibuster and pass a federal takeover of elections that would allow for tremendous amounts of potential voter fraud.
But before Biden could address Senate Democrats, Sinema took to the Senate floor and delivered a bombshell speech where Sinema declared she would never support eliminating the filibuster.
“I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division infecting our country. The debate over the 60-vote threshold shines a light on our broader challenges. There is no need for me to restate its role protecting our country from wild reversals in federal policy,” Sinema stated. “American politics are cyclical and the granting of power in Washington, D.C. is exchanged regularly by the voters from one party to another. This shift of power back and forth means the Senate 60-vote threshold has proved maddening to members of both.”
Sinema cut Biden off at the knees and ended the push for Democrats to impose a power grab that guarantee the left wins every election in America.
MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell summed up the corporate media’s fury at Sinema calling her speech an “embarrassment” to Joe Biden.
Kyrsten Sinema did something that is extraordinary. Yes, anyone who was reading her body language had to know where she came down on this. She made no secret of it but she wasn’t openly publicly verbal about it.
But she went to the floor of the Senate within an hour of president coming up there to address her caucus, knowing exactly what he was going to do, and she completely embarrassed, politically embarrassed the leader of her own party, the sitting president of the United States, and was giving absolutely no leeway. She made it absolutely clear that she will not give on this.
And to say that she’s in favor of voting reform when it cannot be passed without her changing on the filibuster, and when you look at the history of the filibuster, it’s not sacrosanct, it’s changed any number of years there have been carve-out. So she did something for a freshman senator that was pretty remarkable. It was a total embarrassment to him.
The corporate media’s outrage at Sinema created space for a potential 2024 primary challenger.
A Primary Sinema Project super PAC raised $30,000 in one day and has $250,000 on hand.
Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego all but declared his intention to mount a primary challenge calling Sinema’s vote disappointing.
“Today the House showed where it stands. We won’t shrink from protecting our democracy and the voting rights of all Americans. It’s past time for the U.S. Senate and Sen. Sinema to do the same,” Congressman Gallego declared.
CNN also happily provided a platform for Gallego to bash Sinema.
The Democrat Party is facing sinking poll numbers and diminished chances of holding on to Congress.
Now they have a burgeoning civil war in their midst.
