Sen. Tom Cotton mocked Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer on the Senate floor Wednesday by repeating a 2005 speech the New York Democrat made in defense of the filibuster.
Schumer originally made the speech when Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) threatened to exercise the ” nuclear option ” to stop Democratic-led filibusters against then-President George W. Bush’s judicial nominees.
Repeating Schumer’s speech, Cotton said: “Right now, we are on the precipice of a constitutional crisis.

PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
