BTW, if you only saw the previous post when the video was unplayable, check it out again. The whole post kind of depended on that video.

Schumer says that unless Republican vote to allow Democrats to rig every election in the country in perpetuity, he will force a vote on repealing the filibuster, which he will lose, because both Manchin and Sinema have announced they will vote against it.

But he's a big strong tough man. Be scared!

Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer announced Monday that the chamber would debate eliminating the filibuster in the coming weeks if Republicans refuse to join Democrats in passing sweeping voting legislation.

While the filibuster was designed to empower the minority party in the Senate, Schumer argued that it now serves to "embarrass the will of the majority," against the founders' intentions for legislative procedure. He claimed that Republicans should not be allowed to block the Freedom to Vote Act, using the vehicle of the filibuster, that only further enshrines and expands the American right to vote.

Schumer has previously expressed support for altering the filibuster but the statement is his strongest in favor of the idea.

By the way, Democrats are admitting -- bragging, really -- that they're just using their bullshit January 6th propaganda as leverage to "supercharge" their push for "voting rights."

In other words, this is all crude political theater to help them avoid a wipeout next year. Nothing more than that.

It's going to be an emotional week for a lot of people on Capitol Hill. With the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol siege Thursday, Congress is planning an array of memorials and speeches to commemorate one of the darkest days in American history.


Lawmakers will have the opportunity to tell their personal stories of what it was like to hide from angry rioters. Cable news will blanket the airwaves with harrowing footage of the assault. Leaders of the Capitol Police will testify before the Senate Rules Committee about the security situation one year later.

But Democrats are hoping that Thursday will be more than just a day of remembrance. In the Senate, we hear from well-positioned sources, there's a desire to take the opportunity to supercharge the party's long-stalled voting rights legislation -- possibly even using the anniversary to try to get Sens. KYRSTEN SINEMA (D-Ariz.) and JOE MANCHIN (D-W.Va.) to go nuclear on the filibuster or embrace rules changes.

I'm old enough to remember when Charles Schumer flip-flops on how important/how anti-democratic the fillibuster is every six or eight years, depending on whether or not he's Majority Leader.

Michael Walsh, The Last Days of Fauci the Mad:

Fauci's list of sins is long, and only some of them are listed above. But you know them. You've felt them. You've watched your businesses fail and your children needlessly suffer. You've watched your fellow Americans turn into shrieking Karens, the American Stasi, ready to rat out non-conformists wherever they are found. Heck, you've even put on 30 or 40 pounds since this absurdity started, with the comfort of knowing that if you drop dead of a heart attack, or stroke, or cancer, at least you didn't succumb from COVID. Although that's probably how they'll list your death anyway.

Worst of all is the unforgivable sin of Fauci's reign of error: he has made you hate and shun your fellow man. No longer are we all Americans, going about our lives in the land of the free in the pursuit of happiness. Today, we eye suspiciously anyone not wearing a slave muzzle, convinced by Fauci & Co. that they're all spewing deadly radioactive COVID particles, which are sure to infect and sicken us, and the only thing that can save us is the elimination of the unvaccinated. Just ask Joe Biden, who's promising them "a winter of severe illness and death."

Forget the Canute model. Fauci's heading toward his final incarnation as the second coming of the Emperor Nero. And you know how well that ended, both for Nero and for Rome.

Six killed in Lori Lightfoot's Chicago this weekend, including a 12-year-old boy.

It's like another January 6th every weekend in Chicago. Sad!

A Democrat township commissioner in Darby, PA has been arrested for sexual assault on a 15 year old boy.

A township commissioner in Delaware County, Pennsylvania has been arrested in Philadelphia after turning himself in for an alleged r@pe that took place more than four years ago.

Marvin Smith has been charged with r@pe, sexual assault, luring and related offenses.


Smith was arrested after investigators allege he r@ped a male back in 2017.

According to Philadelphia police, "On April 15, 2019, the complainant stated to Philadelphia police that on August 12, 2017, he was sexually assaulted."


It's unclear at this point why the investigation took so long since the victim reported the incident back in 2019.

I could take a guess.

Rasmussen Reports

Major New York based financial service firm telling their previously all double vaccinated but then Christmas break Omicron infected employees - some still recovering - that they now need to get a vaccine booster shot as a condition of continuing employment.

Just as DeSantis predicted -- which the official Fact Checking Priesthood (TM) declared Officially Disinformation (TM) -- the CDC now demands that those who have not been boosted to be treated exactly as the same as the unvaccinated.

In Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The country has been on lockdown for two months, and you are absolutely not permitted to protest this.

They'll literally sic trained police dogs on you.

Story here.

An Australian man was critically injured after he doused himself in gasoline and lit himself on fire in public on New Year's Day after ranting against vaccines, according to local reports.

The gruesome act of self-immolation occurred just after 8 p.m. local time in the Richmond section of Melbourne when the man poured the gasoline on himself and his vehicle while shouting expletives regarding the state of Victoria's new COVID-19 vaccine mandate, according to the Herald Sun.

Witnesses said police and firefighters tried to douse the burning man with water as he exited the vehicle, still shouting. With the help of five bystanders, officials restrained the man and put him into an ambulance that transported him to the Alfred hospital.

"His skin was burning. He was on fire," a woman, who did not want to be identified, told the Herald Sun. "His skin is stuck to my shirt. He was just off his face [intoxicated] screaming about the vaccine mandates."

Don't worry, Biden said there was a lot to be hopeful about in 2020.

Trouble is, he said that just now, in 2022.

The Science Gods announced new verses to the Sacred Science Scrolls so now all the Science Priests are posting the updates to the Science Programming Network.
