Remember the Boogeyman Vladimir Putin? You know the one who supposedly pulled Trump's strings that the valiant and Patriotic Liberal Hobbit Fart Sniffers stood up to so valiantly? (That is, right up till the point where their boy Biden lifted the sanctions on Russia's Nord Stream Pipeline after cancelling our own Keystone.) Your heroes just used that nasty old filibuster that their fearless leader Schmuck Schumer is trying to abolish to do Vlad baby a solid, blocking a Republican bill that would have put sanctions back on the Russians while they stand ready to invade Ukraine.

Senate Democrats on Thursday defeated an attempted by Republicans to impose sanctions on businesses tied to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which will carry natural gas from Russia to the German coast. They invoked a tool "overwhelmingly used by racists" to do so, according to academics.

The Senate voted 55-44 on legislation introduced by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) that would have ended the pipeline project, which is supported by Russian President Vladimir Putin and opposed by American allies in Ukraine. The Ukrainian government has called the pipeline "an existential treat to our security," as Russia has amassed tens of thousands of troops on its border with Ukraine and is believed to be preparing to invade. The pipeline would allow Russia to directly export natural gas to Western Europe, allowing energy to flow uninterrupted in the event of war
His sanctions bill had majority support. Democratic Sens. Tammy Baldwin (Wisc.), Catherine Cortez Masto (Nev.), Maggie Hassan (N.H.), Mark Kelly (Ariz.), Jacky Rosen (Nev.), and Raphael Warnock (Ga.), along with almost every Republican — Sen. Rand Paul (R-K.y.) being the lone GOP “no” vote — voted in support of Cruz’s bill. But a majority in the United States Senate is not enough to pass bills, thanks to what former President Barack Obama has called a "Jim Crow relic."
Yes indeed, Senate Democrats invoked the legislative filibuster to block Cruz's bill from passing. Their use of a filibuster created a 60-vote threshold to pass the Nord Stream 2 sanctions, and the bipartisan majority of senators came up five votes short of passing the bill.

The Biden White House opposed the sanctions bill, arguing it would hurt U.S. relations with Germany. The president's team lobbied lawmakers to withhold support from the bill, setting up meetings to brief senators on Ukraine, The Hill reports.

Cruz has for months argued that sanctions are needed to prevent the pipeline from becoming operational and to deter Russian aggression.

“The eyes of history are upon us today. Each of us will be faced with a momentous question: Can we put petty differences aside and can we come together to defend our friend and our ally Ukraine against imminent Russian aggression?” Cruz asked on the Senate floor ahead of the vote.

But Democrats used the filibuster to block the sanctions from passing.

Some may call this action by Democrats to stop Cruz's bill flagrantly hypocritical. After all, President Joe Biden as recently as Tuesday called on the Senate to eliminate the filibuster, claiming it has been "weaponized and abused" by Republicans to obstruct his agenda.

But others might say Democrats are being consistent, as in the past Democrats such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) have defended the filibuster as "an important check and balance" that must be "preserved, not vaporized." Biden, once a senator himself, said the filibuster is "about compromise and moderation" in a 2005 speech he described as "one of the most important speeches for historical purposes that I will have given in the 32 years since I have been in the Senate."

Either way, Senate observers would do well to remember that the Democrats in charge are still politicians — they will use what tools they have to exercise power when it favors them and throw a temper tantrum when the other side does the same thing. This episode with the Nord Stream 2 sanctions bill is case in point.

So, I’m confused, are the republicans siding with Putin again. ? Poor Vladdy nobody loves him like trump , his son in law did.
Puty was warned. By Biden of severe consequences if he continued to invade the Ukraine.
We should All be on the same side here.

I honestly don’t believe Milosia2 has a clue about anything discussed in this forum. Maybe a special needs poster.

Let me try to unconfuse you. President Biden insured that Vlad Putin would get more power and money when he approved the Russian German gas pipeline. President Trump was not stupid enough to do that. This deprived Ukraine of revenue. Obama let Putin take Crimea.

I dare you to give examples of President Trump being kinder to Putin than Obama and Biden. Facts mean nothing to you.

Republicans sponsored a bill to sanction the Nord Stream Pipeline that Biden lifted the sanctions on AFTER he killed our own Keystone. The bill had the support of several Democrat Senators. Schmuck Schumer used the same filibuster he is trying to abolish to kill the bill. There will be no sanctions on Russia. All you Libtards who castigated Trump for his non existent collusion with Putin should be really proud of your two-faced leaders. One of the biggest deterrents to keep Russia out of Ukraine has just been taken down by your so called anti Russian Democraps. The people YOU support just did Putin a solid. A real favor. Biden warned Putin of severe consequences and then lifted the sanctions that were the main weapon to keep the Russians out. You are not confused, you are just dimwitted.

I deal in facts. You have no facts. When I run my mouth I spout facts. They must be facts because you didn't even try to dispute them. When you run your mouth, you give only your opinion backed up with less than nothing.

Oh, by the way, you are welcome. Anytime I can correct you or straiten you out, call on me. I ain't going away.
