What the ****?

You don't know? Wrapping your national newspaper with a fake front page just to shill for some Netflix show is classic journalism. 

I mean, I remember my dad telling me about how Walter Cronkite would lead the nightly news with a fake news story just to hawk the new Steve McQueen movie.

Mr. Schumer said he intended to bring the filibuster showdown to a head beginning next week, by forcing votes on a series of measures that Republicans oppose, including one that was blocked by a Republican filibuster in 2014 that seeks to ensure that women and men receive the same pay for equal work. Mr. Schumer hinted that he could also bring forward legislation on gay rights and gun safety. Most immediately, he promised a vote before the end of June on a sweeping voting rights bill that Democrats say is needed to counter new Republican-led voting restrictions being enacted in states around the nation

The idea is to show Democrats refusing to change the filibuster rules that Republicans led by Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the minority leader, are going to stand in the way of legislation that has widespread support, and that the only way to win their adoption is by overturning the rules. The hope is for more of the “conversions” that Mr. Blumenthal noted.

“Each vote will be building the case to convict the Republican Senate leadership of engaging in political gridlock for their advantage, rather than voting for the agenda the American people voted for in 2020,” Mr. Markey said.

It is replicating a strategy that Harry Reid, then the Senate majority leader, employed in 2013 to persuade fellow Democrats to blow up the filibuster for judicial and executive branch nominees. He purposefully lined up a series of votes on highly regarded nominees to the influential United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. When Republicans repeatedly blocked them, Mr. Reid gathered enough Democratic support to change the rules by a majority vote.

I'm not a big Katt Williams fan but it looks like he's clean and making sense. No lies detected in this clip.

 

 

As a whole I am not a fan either....but he is a talented comedian and what he is saying makes too much sense.

 

And his Tink Tink bit gets me laughing every time.

If I was cryogenically frozen in 2016 and just brought back to consciousness a few days ago, I would be shocked out of my mind to see Donald Trump trolling liberals in a way that doesn't indicate any fear whatsoever that he would ever get called on it. It wouldn't make sense. My brain wouldn't accept that liberals could be intellectually disrespected like that by Donald ******* Trump, and even worse, no one would call it what it is even afterwards because it's cannon in liberal and leftist circles that Trump's too stupid to ever say something like that if he wasn't hinting at a real criminal conspiracy that he's actively involved in.

You’d also just find out about 28-3 and Jeremy Pruitt.

28-3 would haunt me immediately. Describing the Pruitt era to me would have elicited no emotional response whatsoever.
