1 – Sanders turns up heat on Manchin, Sinema with tweet on voting rights bills
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., took to Twitter Monday to call out two colleagues by name in the Democrat effort to change the Senate’s filibuster rule to pass the party’s voting rights bills.

Senate Republicans are unified in their opposition to the bills and the chamber, which is split 50-50, would need 60 votes to pass the legislation. Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema are opposed to changing the rules to allow the party to pass the legislation without any Republican votes.

“As the voting rights bill finally comes to the floor of the Senate, there is only one vote which will really matter,” Sanders said in his tweet. “Will 50 Democrats vote to override the filibuster, protect American democracy and pass the bill, or will Manchin and Sinema vote with the GOP and let the bill die?”

DML: Stand strong, Manchin and Sinema!  Let Bernie sputter all he wants!

2 – Nancy Pelosi Says Founding Fathers Would Have ‘Tears In Their Eyes’ If Democrat Agenda Wasn’t Passed
The Daily Caller reports: Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson would have “tears in their eyes” at the “departure from democracy” in the United States during a news conference held by the Deliver for Voting Rights Campaign on Monday.

“Imagine, 36-years-old, left this Earth in such a way that he has a monument on the Mall along with Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson,” Pelosi said, referring to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “All of them with tears in their eyes for the departure from our democracy that is happening right now unless the truth is acknowledged and this legislation is passed.”

The event where Pelosi was hosted by The Deliver for Voting Rights campaign on Martin Luther King Jr. in Washington D.C.’s Union Station, according to C-SPAN. Pelosi was accompanied by the family of King as well as Democratic Representatives, including Ohio Rep. Joyce Beatty.

Speeches at the event called on the Senate to abolish the filibuster in order for the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act to pass into law.

DML: Oh, Pelosi and her tears!  What desperation…  just go sit in the corner with Bernie, please!

3 – AT&T To Remove One America News Network From Lineup
The Daily Caller reports: One America News Network’s (OAN) largest distributor, DirecTV, announced Friday that it will not renew its contract with the outlet, Bloomberg reported.

In an email statement to Bloomberg, DirecTV spokesperson said that “following a routine internal review,” the decision was made to not enter a new contract with Herring Networks Inc., OAN’s owner, once the current contract ends in April. DirecTV made up 90% of the network’s revenue, according to Reuters.

OAN will continue to be provided through Verizon FiOS and various other smaller national pay-TV providers, including KlowdTV and Vidgo, per its website.

The decision follows a concerted campaign from pro-censorship activists and media companies to remove OAN from DirecTV. 16 organizations, including GLAAD, Free Press, and Common Cause, came together to draft a letter to demand DirecTV drop OAN and AT&T severe all ties with the platform in November.

“We are deeply disturbed to learn that AT&T helped establish and fund OAN, a purveyor of racial bigotry, conspiracy theories and calls for anti-democratic violence that endanger lives,” the letter reads.

DML: The censorship against conservatives will only get worse! And Dems say they’re the party of “diversity and inclusion.”  Seriously?

4 – NBA Team Owner: ‘Nobody Cares’ about Uyghur Genocide
National Review reports: Golden State Warriors owner Chamath Palihapitiya suggested recently that “nobody cares” about China’s system of concentration camps, forced labor, and high-tech surveillance against the Uyghur community in Xinjiang.

“Nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs, okay,” Palihapitiya said during an appearance on the All-In podcast. “You bring it up because you care and I think it’s nice that you care. The rest of us don’t care. I’m just telling you a very hard, ugly truth. Of all the things that I care about, yes, it is below my line.”

He went on to list other issues that occupy his focus, including climate change, the potential economic fallout of China invading Taiwan, and U.S. stores not having stocked shelves. The Warriors part-owner said that if America is able to find solutions to all of its own issues then he might shift focus to the oppression of the Uyghurs.

Palihapitiya is the founder and CEO of Social Capital, a venture capital fund whose self-declared mission is “to advance humanity by solving the world’s hardest problems.”

After being slammed for his comments, Palihapitiya tried to clean it up with a statement posted to Twitter Monday night:

“In re-listening to this week’s podcast, I recognize that I came across as lacking empathy. I acknowledge that entirely. As a refugee, my family fled a country with its own set of human rights issues so this is something that is very much a part of my lived experience. To be clear, my believe is that human rights matter, whether in China, the United States, or elsewhere. Full stop.”

DML: It’s too late, Palihapitiya, we all know who you are now.

5 – Watch: Democrats Silent When Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin Says Parents Have ‘Fundamental Right’ to Raise Their Own Children
Breitbart reports: Democrats in the newly Republican Virginia General Assembly sat silently when Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) said parents “have a fundamental right … to make decisions with regard to your child’s upbringing, education and care.”

Youngkin, inaugurated Saturday, delivered his first address to a joint session of the Virginia legislature Monday outlining goals for the Commonwealth as he begins his term in office.

Speaking about education and parental involvement in their child’s upbringing, the Virginia Republican said, “My message to parents is this, you have a fundamental right, enshrined in law by this General Assembly, to make decisions with regard to your child’s upbringing, education and care. And we will protect and reassert that right.”

Republicans gave Youngkin a standing ovation, while Democrats remained glued to their seats, silent.  WATCH:

DML: Regardless of political affiliation, every single parent should be able to applaud Youngkin’s statement.  What is WRONG with these people??!!

  1. I heard Alvita King on T.V. She said they used Dr. King for Political gain & he would have not approved. That’s how Kamala Harris got voted in. To be the 1st black woman as Vice President would give honor to his legacy but she’s not qualified. Reality shows Joe & Kamala don’t like each other at all. She slammed him on stage & rubbed poop in his face. So we all know they are using Dr. King’s legacy to gain popularity. Doesn’t work so leave Manchin & Sinema alone. They are right to do what they stand up for!

  2. Pelosi would be the first person the founders of this country would have hung or shot.
    We are not a democracy
    We are a republic.
    A democracy is where a group of sheep and wolves decide what’s for dinner.

  3. Bernie wants to ‘protect American democracy’? By making FRAUD easy and standard procedure?
    What an a-hole.
    I moved to VT on a job transfer and lived one town north of where he got elected mayor (by 8 votes). The Leftist college crowd has kept him in office, otherwise he’d still be writing soft porn, driving a rusted VW and getting his electricity shut off for nonpayment. As he was.
