(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Last Sunday, Tennessee Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn appeared on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the Senate showdown on the filibuster and the vote on federalizing US elections.
Blackburn pointed out the hypocrisy in the Democrats’ narrative about the Senate filibuster rule, noting that they had no problem with using the filibuster rule the previous week to block Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s bill to sanction companies involved with Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
Blackburn stated the obvious, namely that Senate Democrats want to eliminate the filibuster to be able to ram through their far-left agenda. She said they want to kill it so they can destroy the Senate, the courts, and our very system of government.
And when they can’t kill the filibuster, Blackburn warned, the Democrats will resort to “legislative trickery” to get their bogus “voting rights” bills passed. She said they have to try and force these bills through because Democrats know the only way they could win elections is to remove every safeguard securing election integrity.

On Thursday, all fifty Republicans blocked the Democrats’ Federal Election Takeover. The motion to end debate failed 51 to 49, with Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer changing his vote for procedural reasons.
Schumer then attempted to change the filibuster rule to allow the election bills to pass with a simple 51 majority. However, all fifty Republicans plus Democrats Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin voted to keep the filibuster in place.
