Kyrsten Sinema Just Gave a Surprise Floor Speech—and Officially Nuked Joe Biden’s Agenda – Opinion

Chuck Schumer is pushing forward with a plan to vote on blowing up the filibuster in order to pass the Democrats’ “voting rights” bill (which is anything but). He could vote today, even though he doesn’t have enough votes. This is not only in regard to Republicans who oppose it universally, but also with respect to many Democrats standing in his way.

The Democrats were able to pass the “so-called” House Bill. Freedom to Vote ActAlso, a vote by a majority of the party line. It is so awful that neither Adam Kinzinger nor Liz Cheney were able to cross the aisle. That vote then put the ball back in the Senate’s court, where again, the filibuster would have to be destroyed in order to secure passage.

That’s when something amazing happened. Surprise move: Kyrsten Sinema phoned the White House to inform them that she would be giving a speech on the floor. She then proceeded to essentially end Joe Biden’s presidency, at least from a legislative standpoint.

Sinema’s speech represents her most direct and public defense of the filibuster yet, making it appear all but certain that she is not going to back down. This means that the Democrat effort to rig 2022 elections by legalizing voter harvesting and banning voter ID, mandating large scale absentee voting, making it impossible for voters to vote early, funding campaign campaigns with taxpayer funds, as well as mandating large-scale ballot collection, is now dead. Sinema is the deciding vote, and she’s made her decision. It’s not going to happen — even though she claims to personally support the legislation at hand.

But it’s not just the voting rights farce that’s at stake here. Joe Manchin is a no-go on Biden’s “Build Back Better” reconciliation bill. And while she’s remained in the background, Sinema herself has yet to offer her support for the bill, citing numerous provisions that don’t meet her approval. If the filibuster remains intact, that marks the end of essentially the entirety of Biden’s agenda. I’m not sure what’s left out there for him to pursue going into 2022. Nothing of interest.

The reaction to Sinema’s stand from the left was swift. Sinema was referred to by one Democrat as a white supremacist. Others noted that she is a feminist. lack of visibilityArizona’s obvious indication of Sinema primarying in 2024. Jennifer Rubin was next, and she gave the best braindead interpretation possible.

Yeah, I’m sure that’s going to convince her, guys.

These people never learn. From the bottom of my heart, early in the debate I warned Democrats that accusing Sinema being racist would be counterproductive. It did. All they’ve succeeded in doing is driving her further into her corner, and that corner has led to the near-total destruction of the Democrat agenda. Yet, even after they’ve borne the consequences of their ill-fated strategy, what do they do? They increase their efforts.

As a Republican, I’m loving every minute of this. Democrats are in turmoil over a bill which was never meant to be constitutionally approved. It’s like watching someone spend all their money on one of those claw machines at an arcade. You can feed it quarters.
