On the Eve of JFK’s Death: Senate Leader Harry Reid’s ‘Hunger Games’ have put an end to all debate

Obama Regime Declares All-Out War on The American Republic

I want Hunger Games to stir up a revolution.” – Donald Sutherland

21st Century Wire says…


While most mainstream media outlets are running their proverbial 24 hour cover-up coverage of the JFK assassination on its 50th anniversary by disseminating disinformation, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, along with supporting Democrats have effectively put an end to the filibuster debate…

Was this a dark power play to advance government on the eve of the JFK’s assassination, a stark day that many describe as a political coup and the undoing of America by a secretive criminal cabal?

We reported this back in July, as Reid and others had threatened to put an end to a 60 vote supermajority, a necessary “checks and balance” system setup to appropriately challenge presidential confirmations and nominees. Through the use of what has been called a “nuclear option” the executive branch will have almost zero resistance for appointments under a Democratic or Republican majority other than Supreme Court nominees.

Not only will this end nearly all debate and choice for either political party but this will also psychologically drive another nail in the coffin, in the eyes of the public, who are seemingly left without a choice in America’s political future under a ‘majority rules‘ banner.

Whatever happened to a “government for the people and by the people“?

Historically many are still confused about America’s foundation, forgetting that it has always been a constitutional republic, with its core having nothing to do with democracy, as this old Cicero quote warns:

In a republic this rule ought to be observed: that the majority should not have the predominant power.”

Today’s world is plagued by a different type of  ‘Hunger Game‘ one in which has moved towards ruling class majority, one that seeks to consolidate even more power by distorting the true meaning of sovereignty.

This week Obama awarded the Medal of Freedom to media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who appears to be a devout ‘Alinsky‘ foot soldier, arch-feminist and left wing activist Germaine Greer, and disgraced former President Bill Clinton, while appearing to dismiss the 150th anniversary of  the Gettysburg Address.


What is the American public to make of a president who will not acknowledge its own history, while courting a race-baiting celebrity and an impeached former president to the White House for what is supposed to be an honorable award ?

Reid, Democrats trigger ‘nuclear’ option; eliminate most filibusters on nominees


Paul Kane

Washington Post

Senate Democrats took the dramatic step Thursday of eliminating filibusters for most nominations by presidents, a power play they said was necessary to fix a broken system but one that Republicans said will only rupture it further.

Democrats used a rare parliamentary move to change the rules so that federal judicial nominees and executive-office appointments can advance to confirmation votes by a simple majority of senators, rather than the 60-vote supermajority that has been the standard for nearly four decades.

The immediate rationale for the move was to allow the confirmation of three picks by President Obama to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit — the most recent examples of what Democrats have long considered unreasonably partisan obstruction by Republicans.

In the long term, the rule change represents a substantial power shift in a chamber that for more than two centuries has prided itself on affording more rights to the minority party than any other legislative body in the world. Now, a president whose party holds the majority in the Senate is virtually assured of having his nominees approved, with far less opportunity for political obstruction.

The main combatants Thursday were the chamber’s two chiefs, Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who have clashed for several years over Republican filibusters of Obama’s agenda and nominees.

Reid said the chamber “must evolve” beyond parliamentary roadblocks. “The American people believe the Senate is broken, and I believe the American people are right,” he said, adding: “It’s time to get the Senate working again.”
