Nibbling back at um.


Recommended Posts

The left has been eating us one bite at a time for a while. Maybe our time to nibble back is at hand. Its the time frame that worries me. They are gaining in state legislatures slowly.

We got a break with SCOTUS during the last couple decades but Biden is putting our enemies on the federal bench at a break neck pace. The foot dragging at the top is unsettling we need a big bite from the Supremes sooner then later.

Part of the problem is the politicians, ALL of them, are more interested in their "powers" than doing anything substantive.

Look at how republicans left Trump twisting in the wind during 2016-2018 when they had majorities in both houses of Congress and could aid the WH.  But they didn't and now we are here.

The problem is that you need 60 votes in the Senate for cloture and you are unable to get anything done without the 60 votes to stop a filibuster.  Nominations are the exception which only require 50% (it is assumed that the VP who is the president pro tempore of the Senate will cast the tie breaking vote in favor of the presidential appointee and the VP only votes in the case of a tie.)  IIRC a bill was filed for national reciprocity during Trump's term, but was never brought to a vote because the votes for cloture weren't there. If I also recall correctly, Rs only held 52 or 53 seats at the time.

Yeah.  Republicans blew it by not getting both the house and senate by margins so they could slow down the appointments or at least offer some moderation.  We gotta get our act together for 2024.  If we actually do get control of the house, senate, and presidency in 2024, we better get some stuff done.

And they just reelected a 3-time loser as RNC Chair.
