Default Warren barred from speaking on Senate floor for rest of Sessions debate

Princess Tomahawk just got her mouth wrapped in duct tape.

Guess that's what happens when you venture off the tribe and act like a classless, disrespectful wench.

Warren barred from speaking on Senate floor for rest of Sessions debate | Fox News

Quote:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was prohibited Tuesday night from speaking on the Senate floor for the rest of the debate over Sen. Jeff Sessions' nomination to be attorney general.

The drama began when Warren, quoting a 30-year-old letter by civil rights leader Coretta Scott King, referred to the Alabama Republican as a "disgrace." King's letter was written in 1986, when Sessions was nominated to the federal bench, but was never confirmed.

King also wrote that when acting as a federal prosecutor, Sessions used his power to "chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens."

Warren's reference drew the ire of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said that Warren had "impugned the motives of our colleague from Alabama."

Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont. then advised Warren that she was out of order under Rule 19 of the Senate, which states that "no Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator."

After a few parliamentary moves, McConnell called for a vote to affirm Daines' ruling that Warren was out of order. The GOP-controlled Senate backed him up 49-43 before defeating a Democratic effort to restore Warren's speaking privileges, 50-43.

"She was warned, she was given an explanation," McConnell said of Warren. "Nevertheless, she persisted."

Such bullshi*. Because the Senator in question is the nominee in question. So it seems a bit ridiculous to say you cannot speak ill of another Senator when in this capacity the Senator is actually the nominee. It's a circular trap you cannot avoid. And the fact she was just READING a letter from Dr King's widow is only more infuriating. So obvious these blatant southern racists cannot abide. Because the topic of that letter was the story behind the racist track record of Jeff Sessions. This move fits so well with the white supremacist Trump administration, but taking this procedural track is evidence of the GOP's racist and misogynistic animosity. They just impugned themselves, and this will not be forgotten.

Here is the Letter :

Quote:
Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts. Mr. Sessions has used the awesome powers of his office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters. For this reprehensible conduct, he should not be rewarded with a federal judgeship.

Let that sink in.

Education in the inner city has been gone for decades. Under different administrations.

Uh, the Drinking water in Flint MI was poisoned a year ago. Under a different administration.

Freedom of speech on many University campuses was severely sanctioned also,,, under a different administration.

Jus sayin'
