Schumer Threatened To Radically Alter Senate Rules!

Senate Majority leader Schumer announced that a vote in the Senate is scheduled for January 17, 2022, to change the rules.
In a Dear Colleague Letter, Schumer shared how the Capitol incursion was a democracy attack.

He said that the attacks on American democracy haven’t stopped.
“As we all are witnessing, the attacks on our democracy have not ceased. In fact, they have only accelerated,” Schumer wrote.
“Much like the violent insurrectionists who stormed the US Capitol nearly one year ago, Republican officials in states across the country have seized on the former president’s Big Lie about widespread voter fraud to enact anti-democratic legislation and seize control of typically non-partisan election administration functions,” he added.

Changing the filibuster rules on January 17 will advance legislation on voting rights protections.
Democrats attempted to pass an election and voting rights package, but it has been stalled in an evenly split Senate.
The republicans led filibuster blocked that, so the Democrats couldn’t get the needed 60 votes.

Once the legislation was stalled in the fall, Kamala Harris said, “We’re not going to give up. We’ve never given up — those of us who have fought for the right of every American to express their voice through their vote. We’re going to continue to do the work.”
There isn’t a sign that the Republicans were budging on the issue.
Schumer pushes to change the filibuster rules due to Republicans halting the legislation. If the rules are changed, the legislation could reach an advancement.
“We must adapt. The Senate must evolve like it has many times before.” He said in the letter.
“Let me be clear: January 6 was a symptom of a broader illness — an effort to delegitimize our election process, and the Senate must advance systemic democracy reforms to repair our republic or else the events of that day will not be an aberration — they will be the new norm,” Schumer wrote.
Senators Joe machine and Kyrsten Sinema warned that the Dems can advance with their legislation if the rules change.
“We hope our Republican colleagues change course and work with us,” he wrote. “But if they do not, the Senate will debate and consider changes to Senate rules on or before January 17, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, to protect the foundation of our democracy: free and fair elections.”

AOC is LOW, Calls DeSantis ‘Missing’ When He Took Wife to Cancer Treatment

It’s no secret that President Joe Biden’s approval ratings have plummeted in his short time in office. What may not have been known, however, is that the president has fallen to an even lower approval rating than his vice president, Kamala Harris.

According to a poll conducted by Gallup, 43 percent approved of the way Biden is handling his job, versus 51 percent who disapprove. Vice President Kamala Harris narrowly beat her commander-in-chief with a 44 percent approval rating. Her disapproval rating, however, was higher with 53 percent.
For the poll, 800 people were randomly selected to be interviewed by telephone between December 1st and 16th. The poll asked one simple question of the sampled adults: “Do you approve or disapprove of the way each of the following is handling their job?”

The following eleven U.S. leaders were named: Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, Director of the NIAID Dr. Anthony Fauci, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Attorney General Merrick Garland, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, Vice President Kamala Harris, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, President Joe Biden, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts received the highest approval percentage at 60. Roberts received a 34 percent ‘disapprove’ mark. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell received the lowest approval rating, coming in at 34 percent. His ‘disapprove’ percentage was 63.

Vice President Kamala Harris tied at 44 percent approval rating with Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer. 54 percent disapproved with how Harris is handling her job. However, the veep still beat her boss, who came in third from last with an approval rating of 43 percent and a disapproval rating of 51 percent.

Poll: Biden Approval Rating Falls Even Lower than VP Kamala Harris

During an interview with the Washington Post on Monday, Far-left activist Greta Thunberg slammed Democrat President Joe Biden, saying it’s “strange that people think of Joe Biden as a leader” on climate issues.

Thunberg, who is known for making alarmist claims about climate change, made the comments when she was asked if she was “inspired by any of the world leaders.”
“If you call him a leader — I mean, it’s strange that people think of Joe Biden as a leader for the climate when you see what his administration is doing,” Thunberg responded.
“The U.S. is actually expanding fossil fuel infrastructure,” she said. “Why is the U.S. doing that? It should not fall on us activists and teenagers who just want to go to school to raise this awareness and to inform people that we are actually facing an emergency.”

TRENDING69 Percent of Hispanics Disapprove of Biden Administration’s Handling of Immigration
“People ask us, ‘What do you want?’ ‘What do you want politicians to do?’ And we say, first of all, we have to actually understand what is the emergency. We are trying to find a solution of a crisis that we don’t understand,” she admitted. “For example, in Sweden, we ignore — we don’t even count or include more than two-thirds of our actual emissions. How can we solve a crisis if we ignore more than two-thirds of it? So it’s all about the narrative. It’s all about, what are we actually trying to solve? Is it this emergency, or is it this emergency?”

Thunberg is known for making doomsday claims about climate change without evidence. For example, in her book “No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference,” Thunberg claims “Around 2030 we will be in a position to set off an irreversible chain reaction beyond human control that will lead to the end of our civilization as we know it.”
Additionally, as noted by the Daily Wire, Thunberg claimed in a 2019 op-ed, “Fossil fuels are literally choking the life from us. That action must be powerful and wide-ranging. After all, the climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all. Our political leaders can no longer shirk their responsibilities.”
And in a 2019 rant at the United Nations, Thunberg said, “Yet, you all come to us young people for hope, how dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words and yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering, people are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth.”

NYC Council Passed Measure to Allow Roughly 800k Noncitizens to Vote in Municipal Elections

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

“Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.
Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

TRENDINGReport: ‘At Least 160,000 Illegal Immigrants’ Have Been Released Into U.S. Since March
The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.
Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”
The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to say whether President Biden would support Vice President Kamala Harris in a future presidential run after recent reports suggesting a worsening relationship between the President and Vice President.

“There are a few reports from over the weekend that the Vice President is unhappy,” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked. “Can she expect the President’s automatic endorsement if she decides to run herself in either 2024 or 2028?”
“Well, first of all, the President selected the Vice President because — to serve as his running mate because he felt she was exactly the person he wanted to have by his side to govern the country,” Psaki said. “She’s a key partner.  She’s a bold leader.  And she is somebody who has taken on incredibly important assignments, whether it is addressing the root causes of migration at the Northern Triangle or taking on a core cause of democracy in voting rights.”

TRENDING2 Killed, 10 Injured by Taliban Gunmen at Afghanistan Wedding to Stop Music
“So that is who the President selected,” Psaki continued. “I don’t have any predictions of whether she will run when she will run; I will leave that to her.  But I can tell you that there’s been a lot of reports out there, and they don’t reflect his view or our experience with the Vice President.”
“And so you guys have not heard that the Vice President or key members of her staff are unhappy?” Doocy asked.

“Here’s what I know, Peter: I know that the President relies on the Vice President for her advice, for her counsel,” Psaki said. “She’s somebody who is not only taking on issues that are challenging.  She’s not looking for a cushy role here — no Vice President is, no President is — and that she’s somebody that is a valuable member of the team.”
Over the weekend, CNN released a detailed report based on interviews with numerous Harris aides about how Harris has grown bitter as Biden appears to be distancing himself from the vice president as she has become the most unpopular vice president in modern history.
For example, Harris aides claimed that Harris does not receive the same support from Biden as others, pointing out how the White House defended Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg as he was criticized for abandoning his job amid a supply chain crisis to secretly take paternity leave with his husband after the adoption of his twins in September.
Harris loyalists told CNN that it was “yet another example of an unfair standard at play, wondering why she didn’t get similar cover any of the times she’s been attacked by the right.”
They even went as far as suggesting Biden was racist for supporting Buttigieg, with one aide saying, “It’s hard to miss the specific energy that the White House brings to defend a White man, knowing that Kamala Harris has spent almost a year taking a lot of the hits that the West Wing didn’t want to take themselves.”

DHS Secretary Mayorkas Says We Cannot Remove ‘11 Million Undocumented Individuals’ Unlawfully in U.S.

Remember when President Joe Biden put Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of tackling our immigration problem? We do, too. Remember when absolutely nothing happened, the immigration crisis intensified, and the only time we saw Harris was with child actors talking about space? We do, too.

What we have no recollection of, is Harris having any involvement with border policies; apparently, neither does Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. When questioned during Tuesday’s border hearing, the Secretary admitted Harris has not been “directly” involved in key policy decisions in her almost eight months since being deemed Biden’s head honcho to tackle “root causes” of illegal immigration.
In a back-and-forth with Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri, Mayorkas could not cover for Harris’ inaction. The New York Post transcribed the uncomfortable interaction:

TRENDINGBiden Admin Again Pushes For End Of ‘Remain In Mexico’ Policy
“Do you report to her?” Hawley asked Mayorkas.
“Senator, I report to the vice president and the president, and your question misstates the facts,” the DHS secretary responded. “The president did not appoint the vice president to be the border czar. He asked her to lead the effort in addressing the root causes of irregular migration. Those are two very different things.”

“Ah, I see,” Hawley answered. “So is she working closely with you on that important endeavor? How often do you meet with her?”
“I am certainly in close touch with the vice president,” Mayorkas said.
“How often do you meet on this subject?” Hawley pressed.
“I’ve met with the vice president more than a handful of times,” answered Mayorkas, who was confirmed as DHS secretary in February.
” More than a handful? Well, so what’s that, six or seven times in the last year? ” Hawley said.
“Well, no, first of all, I have not been in office for a year, senator,” said Mayorkas before repeating that he was in “close touch” with Harris.
When Hawley asked Mayorkas if the vice president had traveled to the border with him, the DHS chief recalled a late June visit by Harris to El Paso, Texas. The vice president received criticism for the trip from Republicans like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who pointed out at the time that Harris was going nowhere near the epicenter of the ongoing crisis.
“And has she been part of your policies, your decision to end the ‘Remain in Mexico‘ policy, to end the public charge rule, to change the ICE guidance, has she been part of those decisions?” asked Hawley.
“I have not consulted with the vice president directly about those policies,” Mayorkas admitted.
“So what is she doing, exactly?” the Missourian asked. “You said she’s not the border czar.  That’s not her role. We’re wrong about that. She’s not doing anything like that. She’s doing something very different, is what your testimony is, but you’re not actually consulting with her on any policy. So what is it that she’s doing, exactly?”
“Senator, as I have repeatedly testified, she is focused on addressing the root causes of irregular migration in the context of the migration channels,” Mayorkas responded.
“How’s that been going?” snarked Hawley.
“That is a — We are advancing considerably, and in fact, I am contributing to that effort ,” said Mayorkas, who cited trips he had made to meet with officials in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and other countries.
“And those efforts are working? That’s been successful?” Hawley asked.
“This is a process that takes time and delivers an enduring solution,” Mayorkas insisted.
The Post notes “The pointed questions about Harris’ role come amid reports that the vice president is both increasingly sidelined by Biden during crucial meetings, and saddled with controversial issues that are eating away at her popularity.”
