Kyrsten Sinema Promptly Scuttles Joe Biden’s Big Plan to ‘Codify’ Roe – Opinion

This was accomplished by the overturning Roe V. Wade and the nuking of the non-existent “constitutional right” to abortion the Supreme Court made up 50 years ago, Democrats have been presented with a political brick wall. They are instead stepping on the accelerator, rather than hitting the brakes.

Delusion is a funny thing, and it’s most prominent in those who can’t fathom that they’ve overplayed their hand. One can simply peruse Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s social media to be provided with example after example of that. Democrats had previously convinced themselves that they were going to enjoy a permanent majority, and even though that dream has long since perished, they just can’t quite let go.

Joe Biden has arrived, and he is still fumbling about Europe. Officially, the president called for an end to the Senate filibuster.

To be clear, there is no such thing as an “exception” to the filibuster. It doesn’t matter if one side removes it in order to reach their preferred policy goal. The other side will be able and willing to do the same. Harry Reid, who removed the judicial filibuster and paved the way to the conservative Supreme Court, taught us this lesson. But did Democrats learn from their mistakes? It is not.

Here’s the other thing, though. Biden It does nothave all the votes. Kyrsten Silena, shortly afterwards, made it known again.

Putting aside the fact that this CNN hack is using the euphemism “reproductive rights,” as if women don’t have the right to refrain from reproducing if they so choose, Sinema’s answer is not surprising at all. She’s only given the same one, what? It’s been given a few thousand times. But our intrepid press keeps asking as if it can force her to change her old position. It’s a bit jarring to witness supposed journalists rush to flex their skills as Democrat propaganda agents, but I digress, there’s nothing new about that.

What’s so ironic about this entire situation is that Sinema is saving Democrats from themselves. Sinema is intelligent enough to recognize and accept the fact that Republicans will soon take over. The Senate map effectively guarantees that there will be a majority in 2024, even if Republicans make a mistake in 2022. This is possible due to the selection of bad candidates. A fool would not blow up the filibuster against the Democrats’ backside, giving the precedent to their political opponents. Yet, that’s exactly what Biden, Ocasio-Cortez, and the rest are stumping for.

Meanwhile, left-wingers viciously attack Sinema when she’s actually doing them a favor. It is not surprising, but it was expected. Delusion follows when a party is in total control, even for a very short time, like the Democrats are since the start of 2021. Republicans suffered from it prior to the 2018 election, believing the warning signs didn’t apply to them and that some single event (the Kavanaugh hearings) could save them. That’s just not how it works, though. Let the Democrats flail I guess. It’s going to make the coming red wave all the more enjoyable.
