    PHOENIX (AP) — U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is growing increasingly isolated from some of her party’s most influential officials and donors after playing a key role in scuttling voting rights legislation that many Democrats consider essential to preserving democracy. Leaders of the Arizona Democratic Party voted Saturday to censure Sinema, a symbolic condemnation for the woman who just three years ago brought the party an Arizona Senate seat for the first time in a generation. Donors are threatening to walk away. Several groups are already collecting money for an eventual primary challenge, even though she’s not on the ballot until...

    Former President Donald Trump’s endorsement is coveted among Republicans running for U.S. Senate in Missouri. All of the candidates talk about their support of Trump on the campaign trail. At least two have brought on former Trump staffers as paid advisers. And more than one of them might get the endorsement. Trump, frustrated that he’s getting conflicting advice from advisers and unsure of which one to believe, is reportedly considering endorsing more than one candidate, according to Politico.

    VIDEOPssst! Senator Murphy. Guess who was obsessing about "WHO COUNTS THE VOTES" in a big way? Hint? It was someone in a Senate hallway and a member of your own party. Yes, Joe Biden. And yet you conveniently overlooked that while castigating President Donald Trump during debate about federalizing elections in the states.
  • The Flawed American Innovation and Choice Online Act Picks and Chooses Which Businesses are Above the Law

    01/20/2022 5:10:45 AM PST · by Kaslin · 4 replies ^ | January 20, 2022 | Drew Johnson
    An antitrust proposal scheduled for markup in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday would arbitrarily choose which American businesses are subject to stringent new laws and massive fines unless lawmakers fix the bill’s serious flaws. The bill, S.2992, the bipartisan American Innovation and Choice Online Act, is aimed at imposing new parameters on ‘Big Tech’ business practices. But it uses flawed metrics to attack certain businesses and favor others. If the legislation’s cosponsors – Sens. Klobuchar, Grassley, Durbin, Graham, Blumenthal, Kennedy, Booker, Hirono, and Hawley – are serious about addressing consumer concerns, rather than simply penalizing popular businesses, they should...

    The Senate has failed to end debate on voting rights legislation -- a move that would have required 60 votes to move toward final passage.The vote was 49-51.After another round of remarks on the Senate floor, there will be a second vote to change the Senate rules to allow the legislation to pass with a simple majority. That would require 51 votes and is also expected to fail.

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a passionate speech on the Senate floor today, Democrat Chuck Schumer eloquently defended the filibuster before suddenly realizing he was reading one of his old speeches from two years ago. "The filibuster is a sacred element of our most holy democracy and I believe that with every fiber of my very being," Schumer began. "All who attempt to do away with it—or even question it in any way—are attacking the very foundations of our most hallowed rule of law. They are also racists who want to bring back segregation. WE MUST STO--" Schumer suddenly stopped pounding angrily on...

    New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) said in an interview he passed on running for Senate because he didn’t want to simply be a “roadblock” to President Biden for two years. “I was pretty close,” Sununu told The Washington Examiner about weighing a Senate bid. “I wasn't ready to make an announcement, but I was like, 'OK, this makes sense. I think I could be a voice nationally."

    Vice President Kamala Harris, in a Martin Luther King Jr. Day speech that appeared targeted at a pair of fellow Democrats, called on senators to pass stalled voting rights bills or be “complicit” in disenfranchising people. Harris’ stern pitch for the seemingly fated bills on Monday follows President Biden’s controversial speech last week that likened Republican senators to racists for blocking the legislation.

    US Congresswoman Rep. Kat Cammack sounds the alarm. The Democrats are breaking all the rules to end elections in America forevermore. Rep. Cammack did not vote for the Democrats’ scam move to steal elections. No Republican did. Officially, this bill was created by the Democrats to concur with Senate amendments and further amend the bill to merge the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the Freedom to Vote Act into previously passed legislation extending NASA’s authority to lease its facilities. Rep. Cammack tells it all on the Democrats’ efforts in this BS voting rights bill.

    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) on Sunday would not say if he plans to file to run for U.S. Senate by next month’s deadline, days after reports surfaced that GOP heavyweights are urging him to mount a bid. Asked by moderator Margaret Brennan on CBS’s “Face the Nation” if he is going to run for U.S. Senate, Hogan refused to answer directly, instead asserting that he is focused on combating COVID-19 and the current omicron wave in the Old Line State.

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has the full support of the Republican caucus to continue in his leadership role if they win the Senate majority in the 2022 midterm election. Anchor Chuck Todd said, “Senator Lindsey Graham said he couldn’t support Mitch McConnell if he doesn’t develop a working relationship with Donald Trump. Is that a litmus test that you think is fair?”

    rizona Gov. Doug Ducey declared in January 2021 that he was “100 percent” focused on his current job and uninterested in a bid for Senate. But speculation among state political insiders that Ducey is plotting a late entry into the Senate race has escalated in recent weeks — a development that would scramble a contest that is pivotal to the battle for the Senate majority. The term-limited Republican governor, now in his last year of office, has not said anything publicly that suggests he has changed his mind. The Aug. 2 GOP primary to take on Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly...

    Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) took to the Senate floor on Thursday and delivered a speech that could be described as having a little something for everyone. There was, however, one little something that was much bigger than all the rest: her steadfast resolve about not getting rid of the filibuster. Knowing what the crux of this speech was going to mean for the future of the Republic, I really wanted to love it. Sinema is my senator, and so far has been an ongoing surprise for conservatives here in the Grand Canyon State. She seems to grasp the true purple...

Obviously Sinema didn't want the crazed Biden to point his finger at her and accused Sinema of being Bull Connor.

    Sen. Kyrsten Sinema said Thursday that she will not vote to weaken the Senate's 60-vote filibuster threshold, bucking her party leaders yet again and dealing a major blow to Democrats' election reform effort. The comments, which match Sinema's long-held stance on the filibuster, are effectively the final nail in the coffin of Democrats' longshot effort to pass two elections bills over unified Senate GOP opposition. "There's no need for me to restate my longstanding support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation. There's no need for me to restate its role in protecting our country from wild reversals of federal...

    Just heard on ABC radio. Democrats planning a Trojan Horse to pass the Voting Rights legislation by avoiding filibuster procedures. As best as I can explain it, Ds plan to remove a provision from an unrelated piece of legislation (NASA related, iirc) and insert voting rights legislation. The radio report said if the legislation originated in the Senate, the 60 vote threshold was unneeded and could presumably move to the house.

    Janet Woodcock, the acting commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, said Tuesday that “most people are going to get Covid” amid a record surge being fueled by the spread of the omicron variant of coronavirus in the country. Woodcock suggested that instead of focusing on stopping community transmission, the federal government should seek to ensure “continuity of operations” in hospitals, public transportation and other essential businesses as the virus causes significant labor shortages. According to Department of Health and Human Services data, as of Saturday, more than 25% of hospitals in 18 states were suffering from severe shortages of...
