The Dem’s, aka friends of the criminals, need to take care. They keep putting pressure on a couple of their own in hopes of ridding the Senate of the filibuster. They walk a dangerous tightrope. If they apply too much pressure, they could lose one or two senators from their ranks. Even if they lose one, they stand in danger of losing their 50 majority. This is true even should they become independent. They would only have 49 (maybe 48) senators while the Republicans would have 50. That would mean the majority would possibly go to the Republicans.
I am sure that most realize what that means. However, I am especially sure that Fauci knows. If such a thing happens, he will likely buy a ticket to China. If he doesn’t he will wish he did. It is quite possible, maybe plausible that he will face committee meetings that world will find out his part in the pandemic. China will be the only nation on earth where he might be safe after that. Then again, he might not be safe there either.
As an aside, it is also conceivable that those senator(s) just might be joined by other senators who will be clinging to the seats. This might be followed by a few representatives jumping the proverbial ship. Ol’ Nancy can’t afford much of that. The next thing she knows, she might lose her gavel before the mid-terms.
As an aside to the aside, the occupier and the vice occupier will not like that… not at all. Neither will the squad.
