The Morning Briefing: Bipartisan Senate Majority Kills Democrats' 'Voting Rights' Lie

Top O’ the Briefing

Happy Thursday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Gandhi would often pantomime ribald stories about drunk hobos after he’d been fasting too long.


Sane citizens of this still-great Republic can breathe a sigh of relief after last night. The Democrats’ mad plan to turn the United States of America into USSR 2.0 was thwarted by the thinnest of bipartisan margins.

The dual defeats came just hours after a barely coherent Joe Biden rambled through a fictionalized version of his first year in office, then let his babysitters in the press coddle him.

Our Townhall colleague Spencer Brown has more on what happened later:

The United States Senate delivered more bad news for the Biden administration late Wednesday night in the form of two votes: one that failed to move Democrats’ federal takeover of elections forward and a subsequent unsuccessful attempt by Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to nuke the legislative filibuster in order to force the Democrat power-grab through with their razor-thin majority.

Vice President Kamala Harris presided over the first vote, just another in a string of defeats she’s ended up personally announcing in the Biden-Harris administration’s first year. This one may have stung even more, though, as “reforming” elections in the United States was one of the policies Biden tasked Harris with shepherding through Congress.

We probably shouldn’t breathe that aforementioned sigh for too long because the Democrats aren’t going to stop barking “Voting Rights!” like trained seals between now and November.

Of course, they’re going to get plenty of help from their flying monkeys in the mainstream media:


The federal hijacking that was staved off last night was intended to permanently dilute elections to the point that anyone paying attention would know that their votes were practically meaningless. The MSM hacks are doing nothing but parroting the DNC talking points, which are all lies. Everything that the Democrats say about voting and elections now is a lie.


If they can’t make the 2020 election anomalies federal law, you can be sure they’ll still work feverishly to keep the pandemic panic going strong enough to take “emergency” election measures again.

Last night was an important win, but the Democrats are laser-focused on transforming the U.S. into a communist hellhole.

There’s a lot of fighting yet to be done.

Speaking of the Media

The corrupt mainstream media is committed to abetting the Democrats and their attempts to hasten the demise of the American experiment. This is a perfect time to bring up our VIP subscription program. This is from a column I wrote about it last October:

Just ten years ago, the mainstream media dealt with conservative new media by merely ignoring us, which they had the luxury of doing. Thanks to the pesky internet being more egalitarian than the lefties prefer, we too have steadily gained more reach and influence, albeit at a slower pace. The Big Tech behemoth has responded not just by attempting to tilt a once-level playing field but by blowing up our side of it altogether.

I’m not one given to being overwrought about much these days but I can tell you this in all seriousness: Big Tech (Facebook, Twitter, Google) isn’t content to simply marginalize conservative new media outlets, it wants to destroy us completely.

We fortuitously launched our VIP program just before the Wuhan Chinese Bat Flu hit and it has been a godsend. Those who have come along for the ride get to enjoy bonus content from our talented family of writers. Our VIP Gold subscribers get access to the premium content at every Townhall Media site (PJ Media, TownhallRedStateHotAirBearing Arms, and Twitchy).


We’re even taking the show on the road next month to CPAC in Orlando. Stephen Green and I will be doing our weekly, three-hour-long “Five O’Clock Somewhere” video chat from the conference with luminaries from all of Townhall Media dropping by for guest turns in what we’ve dubbed “The Seat of Uncomfortable Ecstasy.”

We like to make our VIP efforts both informative and a party. You can support conservative media, fight the mainstream hacks, and have a blast while doing it. If you want to give the good time a try you can sign up here and get a 25% discount when you use the promo code FILIBUSTER.

Join us, won’t you? There are adult beverages and a lotta laughs.
