Democrats used the Senate filibuster, which they are busy trying to eliminate, to block a bill by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Thursday that would have sanctioned companies associated with Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The bill had 55 votes.

The filibuster requires 60 votes to end debate and move to a final vote, which meant that despite the 55-44 margin, and the votes of five Democrats in favor, the bill could not advance — a win for President Joe Biden’s approach to talks with Russia.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Biden administration allowed the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to proceed last year — after shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline project in the U.S. to appease environmentalists — saying that the project was too close to completion to reverse.


President Trump at the time wanted to block the pipeline because it would lead to Russia being more energy dominant over Europe which would cause the country to be more dependent on Russia’s natural gas. The pipeline is also thought to give Putin the ability to avoid pipelines in Ukraine which would ultimately bring Russia more leverage in the industry.

Cruz tweeted Thursday, “Today, the Senate rebuked Joe Biden’s surrender to Vladimir Putin on Nord Stream 2. Despite furious White House lobbying, a large bipartisan majority of senators (55-44) once again voted for immediate sanctions on Putin’s pipeline.”

“President Biden should listen to the Senate and to the people and government of Ukraine, and reverse his catastrophic decision to grant Russia waivers from congressionally mandated sanctions. Only immediately imposing sanctions can change Putin’s calculation, stop a Ukrainian invasion, and lift the existential threat posed by Nord Stream 2.”

Cruz tweeted Friday, “How much $$ did the Russian lobbyists give the 44 Dems who just voted with Putin? Will any reporters bother to find out? 🤔”

Rep. Jeff Duncan wrote, “The Nord Stream 2 pipeline sanctions bill failed to pass the Senate. Allowing the completion of this pipeline undercuts American security while emboldening Putin’s energy stranglehold over Europe. This is the Democrats’ America-last energy policy on full display. Democrats continue to undercut American energy production while handing out geopolitical leverage to our adversaries.”

Don Jr. tweeted, “So the democrats think the filibuster is great when they’re using it to help Vladimir Putin. Got it. Democrats Use Dreaded Filibuster (in the same week they tried to eliminate it) to Block Ted Cruz Bill Sanctioning Russia’s Nord Stream 2 Pipeline.”

Richard Grenell said, “Democrats in DC spent 4 years saying Trump was a Russian asset. But Trump sanctions on Russia stopped the opening of the Nord Stream 2 Russian pipeline. Yesterday, the same Democrats voted to NOT put new sanctions on Russia. And the media?! They didn’t notice.”

Rep. John Joyce tweeted, “This type of Russian aggression is unacceptable, and it is why the Biden Administration should support sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.”

  1. It’s almost funny that the libtards that love that pos in the white house can’t see what he is doing g to our country

  2. Putin says jump Biden says how high sir! Watch when Putin uses the pipeline to pressure countries to get his way and the democrats will act surprised, wail, and say he broke his word!

  3. It’s because the bill was Ted Cruz’ bill. Not a Democrat bill. They don’t want to give credit for any good idea to a Republican. How stupid and selfish!!!

  4. hypocrites – Democrats show what they really are- they protest against the filibuster – then use it to stop sanctions against Russia. you can’t make this crap up.

  5. Those who voted to stop it should be investigated for their connection with Putin. They are traitors to our country and their citizens. Democrats wanted to impeach Trump because of the “Rusia Collusion” at the end they are the ones connected to Russia. Finally the truth is coming out! About time that the American people start learning the real truth!❤️🇺🇸

  6. DEMOCRATS ARE THE WORST FUKIN PEOPLE… WHAT A JOKE THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS BECOME…. PEOPLE, CITIZENS, PATRIOTS, ITS TIME TO FIRE THEM ALL.. FROM THE TOP DOWN!!!!! VOTE VOTE VOTE RED RED RED!!!! GET THEM OUT…

  7. Democrats suck!!! As does this administration! Too bad about that pesky little filibuster huh Dems??? It’s ok when it’s for your convenience. HYPOCRITES!!!!
