The Number Of Votes Senate Dems Running For President Are Missing Is Astounding

Maybe these folks need to be handed their pink slips?

Published

Senate Democrats who are currently running for their party’s presidential nomination are apparently getting to take a lot of time off from doing the actual jobs they were “hired” to do.

Apparently these folks are neglecting their actual obligations for the current job title they hold and missing tons of votes, according to new reports.

Must be nice to be a politician. If the rest of us didn’t show up to work we’d be fired.

Some senators have missed nearly 50 percent of Senate floor votes this year. Sen. Cory Booker (N.J) leads the way, having missed 47 percent of votes, followed by Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) at 46 percent, and Bernie Sanders (Vt.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) at 41 percent.

Yes, Sen. Gillibrand, who is polling at 0 or 1 percent in many national polls, is committing so much time to her presidential campaign that she is missing 41 percent of Senate votes.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is doing a bit better than the other front-runner senators, having missed 29 percent of this year’s votes. Michael Bennet of Colorado has missed 28 percent and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota has missed 24 percent.

The average number of votes being missed by Democratic senators is hitting around 31 percent. However, as bad as these numbers are, it’s actually been worse in the past.

Back in 2007, when former Sen. John McCain was campaigning for president, he missed a whopping 53 percent of the votes held in the Senate.

Now, the individual who wins the nomination isn’t going to have to deal with a whole lot of backlash, but those who won’t nab the nomination will have a tough time campaigning for re-election in their state with such a large number of missed votes on their record.

Ultimately, that could be a good thing for conservatives who are wanting to see more of those seats return to the hands of Republicans, thus giving the GOP control of all three branches of government, assuming Trump wins in 2020.

Barr Labels Seattle, New York City, And Portland As ‘Anarchist Jurisdictions’

Published

Attorney General William Barr has come out and labeled the cities of New York, Seattle, and Portland as “anarchist jurisdictions,” stating they have “permitted violence and destruction of property to persist,” after the president signed an executive order to limit federal funds sent to these places in the U.S. The announcement came via the Justice Department on Monday morning, saying the leadership in these three cities “have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities” for months now following the death of George Floyd, which led to an explosion in violent protests, riots, and looting. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said Monday. “We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance. It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.” Trump’s early September memorandum stated that “it is the policy and purpose of the United States Government to protect the lives and property of all people in the United States from unlawful acts of violence and destruction” and that “without law and order, democracy cannot function.” The president said that “anarchy has recently beset some of our States and cities” and claimed that “for the past few months, several State and local governments have contributed to the violence and destruction in their jurisdictions by failing to enforce the law, disempowering and significantly defunding their police departments, and refusing to accept offers of Federal law enforcement assistance.” He…

Tom Cotton Weighs In On Filling RGB Seat: Democrats Who Voted For Kavanaugh Won Reelection; Those That Didn’t, Lost

Published

Sen. Tom Cotton made a very good argument for why Democrats should vote in favor of filling the SCOTUS seat left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by pointing out that those Democrats who supported Kavanaugh got reelected, while those that voted against him didn’t. This is a great strategy. What most Democrats want more than anything is to do maintain power and stay in office so they can get paid to do nothing, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to do so. Cotton knows that, hence, bringing up this very valid point. via The Daily Wire: “In 2014, the American people elected a Republican majority to the Senate to put the brakes on President Obama’s judicial nominations,” Cotton said during an interview on Fox News. “In 2018, we had a referendum on this question, just a month before the 2018 midterms. We had the vote on Justice Kavanaugh. There could not have been a clearer mandate because the American people didn’t just re-elect Republicans, they expanded our majority. They defeated four Democratic senators who voted against Justice Kavanaugh. They re-elected the one Democratic senator who did vote for Justice Kavanaugh.” “So we have a clear mandate to perform our constitutional duty. That’s what the Senate majority will do now. That’s what we did back in 2016 as well,” Cotton continued. “The Senate majority is performing our constitutional duty and fulfilling the mandate that the voters gave us in 2016 and especially in 2018.” Cotton later added that people should not “discount Democratic votes either” in the upcoming hearings after President Donald Trump announces who he is nominating to the nation’s highest court. https://youtu.be/0N2I3GVO_q4 We absolutely need to make sure that a true, pro-life, conservative appointee is confirmed and placed on the Supreme Court, as…
