God Blessed Texas

 

At about 3:30 a.m. on Friday the 13th, Chuck Schumer sought to have SR1-HR1 passed by unanimous consent.  Standing in the breach was Ted Cruz, who objected and foiled the dead-of-night attempt to destroy the Republic. God blessed Texas, and all of us, with Ted Cruz.

    Good for Ted. Why wasn’t the Vice President presiding?

    VP only presides on ceremonial occasions and when there may be a simple majority vote that could need a tiebreaker. Schmucky was basically seeking to waive the rules via unanimous consent. No need for VP.

    No kidding?  The Democrats actually tried this?

    I haven’t seen it in the news.  This should be a huge story…

    It might keep her out of trouble, though, if she spends her days where people can keep an eye on her.

    I think, but am not positive, that this is part of the role playing and staging that goes on in Washington.  Dems want to say that they tried, knowing doggone well that it will be objected to.

    The minority party always keeps one Senator on the floor to stop unanimous consent requests.  Or was this a rare time that the minority party had not kept a Senator on the floor to thwart a unanimous consent request, and Senator Cruz filled the breach?   Cruz sure thinks we’ll on his feet.

    IIRC Ted Cruz was one of the few who stood up and challenged the election steal. We have been blessed.

    IIRC he did not challenge enough slates to make a difference.

    A quick search on duckduckgo got two stories, one on Citizen Free Press and a tweet by Forbes. Otherwise, as far as I can tell just with a quick look, crickets. 

    Prompting the perhaps far too obvious question: how many bullets can be dodge before they pull a sleazeball trick like this and it works?

    Just sayin’.

    Probably best to wait until Ted goes on some junket out of the country and some slacker Republican is on guard duty.

    If an activity is actually related to truth and is worthy of lagacy news media attention, it most likely will not get so much as a 20 second sound byte, if that.

    Ted Cruz gets campaign donations from me when I can, in spite of being way out of my district. Money is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Do I agree with him 100%? Hell no. But I don’t expect to.

    You would think that a video of the President’s son telling a Russian prostitute that his laptop was stolen by Russian agents in order to blackmail him would be a story too but it’s not. These are just two of the days examples of the things nobody wants you to see.

    Nobody wants to admit they screwed up by voting for Biden.

    The news reports I saw were all Democratic Senators complaining about Sen. Cruz foiling the will of the people by using a dirty procedural trick in the middle of the night, as though it was Sen. Cruz’s idea to bring the matter up at that time, and ignoring the Democrats’ dirty tricks in how the matter came up at that time. Chutzpa.  

    I gather this was done almost immediately after the procedures on the so-called “infrastructure” bill and the Democrats were counting on all the Senators (at least the Republicans) leaving the chamber on the assumption that there would be no further activities.

    Gonna go out on a limb and guess they didn’t mention any of these on the Ricochet podcast either.

    Good, it sounds like he might need to sleep on a cot in the senate chamber for a while.
