Democrats Blocking Entire Trump Agenda Via Senate Closure Rule!

Tell Senate:
Eliminate Closure Rule
To Make America Great Again!

The biggest obstacle to President Trump's pro-America agenda is the Senate Closure rule (sometimes called Cloture).1 This is the rule by which a minority of 41 Democrats can block any bill from coming up for a vote and it is mistakenly referred to as a filibuster.

The closure rule is simply a procedural rule that is not in the Constitution; it can be eliminated while leaving the filibuster in place so that bills can be passed with a simple majority in the Senate, as they should be!

But we must convince the Senate GOP to make the rule change as President Trump has requested.

The President sent out a Tweet a few days ago which read, "The U.S. Senate should switch to 51 votes, immediately, and get Healthcare and TAX CUTS approved, fast and easy. Dems would do it, no doubt!"

The presstitutes in the mainstream media claim that Mr. Trump is calling for an end to the filibuster. This is, of course, fake news and the President never even used the word filibuster.

Under a filibuster, any Senator can block the vote on a bill by standing up and talking non-stop until they sit down or fall down exhausted.

The closure rule is what Mr. Trump was talking about. 41 Senators can vote in lockstep to shut down a vote on ANY issue... meaning that no matter how many wonderful pro-America bills are introduced in the Senate, Democrats will not allow a vote to take place under the closure rule.

This is a ridiculous rule that was proposed by Democrat Woodrow Wilson. The Democrats only follow it when it benefits them, so it is time to end the closure rule.

The filibuster can remain in place and is not a real threat to legislation. How long do you suppose 83-year-old globalist Dianne Feinstein could actually stand up to filibuster a bill anyway? 20 minutes?

Sixty-six of the current US Senators are retirement age or older, so the filibuster is not the real problem; real talking filibusters are extremely rare, such as the ones conducted by Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz to hold up Obama-era legislation.

Proverbs 29:2 states, "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked rule, the people mourn." The Democrats are not even in the majority, but they are ruling Congress right now by blocking all worthy legislation with the closure rule.

The closure/cloture rule allows tyranny of the minority to keep America on the path to destruction through globalism.

Dear Chairman Shelby:

America is living under the tyranny of the minority so long as the Senate closure (cloture) rule remains in place. No other similar situation in America exists in which a minority can thwart the will of the majority of the people. The closure rule is outdated as proven by the recent confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

President Trump has publicly stated that he supports eliminating the closure rule so that bills can be passed with 51-vote simple majority. This is a sensible plan. A simple majority is sufficient for House bills and every election in America, and it will work just fine for the Senate. The closure rule is not constitutional and is in fact a recent historical addition to the Senate rules. The Senate functioned just fine before Democrat Woodrow Wilson encourage the addition of this rule; the Senate will work just fine if the rule is gone!

America has been driven toward a cliff due to mismanagement by crooked politicians and the anti-American, anti-Constitution Obama regime. We have a limited window of opportunity to turn things around before it is too late. The people want the federal government to start the wall on our southern border. We want tax cuts. We want Obamacare fully, completely and totally repealed. We want the huge flood of terrorists entering our country by posing as refugees to stop. None of these important issues will become law, however, as long as the obstructionist Democrats can use the closure rule to block all bills.

I am not concerned with the filibuster. The media has falsely claimed that the President wants the filibuster ended, but Mr. Trump was only referring to the closure rule. The threat of filibuster by a 41-vote bloc of Democrats is a huge problem that the American people want to see eliminated.

Perhaps Barack Obama said it best when he arrogantly declared, "Elections have consequences! If you want to set policy then you should win an election."  Now it is time for Democrats to really feel the consequences of losing an election due to normal Americans completely rejecting their authoritarianism, socialism, globalism, bathroomism and every other -ism they want to force down our throats.

Please vote to put an end to the closure (cloture) rule immediately. America has some big agenda items that need to be passed right away so we can make our nation great again. Losers don't get to set policy!
