    The Senate rules which allow a single senator to block legislation is ridiculous.  

     

    Do your stinking job!

    McConnell should remove ignorant, inexperienced Tuberville from all commitees plain and simple. Senators should change the senate rule and get on with America's business, especially supporting our military.#stupidisasstupiddoes #voteoutrepublicanidiots

    Tuberville has no military or national security experience and has only been in the Senate for 3 years. If he had more experience he wouldn't be jeopardizing both with his political antics and stunts. US adversaries (China, Iran, Korea, Russia, etc) are watching and taking advantage.

    Remove Tuberville from the committee and replace him someone with a military background and national security experience. Surely Republicans can find someone better.

    "Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) is exercising his authority under Senate rules to halt the promotion of 270 senior military promotions....650 by the year’s end. With just 852 general and flag officers in the U.S. military, 76% of the nation’s most senior officers are on pace to not be Senate-confirmed by the end of the year... up to 90 per cent of generals could be either in an acting or temporary capacity."

    "Mr Tuberville has delayed the approval of more than 300 military appointments and promotions - a number that is projected to double by the end of the year. The top leadership positions in the Army, Navy and Marine Corps are currently being filled by lower-ranked officers serving on an interim basis."

    "These senatorial hijinks could not come at a worse time for the U.S. military—the Ukraine counteroffensive is stalled, China continues with illegal annexations in the Indo-Pacific, and the Persian Gulf has witnessed an uptick in Iranian aggression. What’s more, the highest military officer—the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff—is slated for turnover this summer. This promotion logjam is poised to be a highway pileup with the nominations of the heads of the Army, Navy, and Air Force scheduled to come before the Senate in the coming months."

    Sen.Tuberville is only blocking unanimous consent motions, Chuck Schumer can schedule a roll call vote on military promotions and solve this issue.

    Time to throw Jim "Jones" Johnson out of Congress, seems he drank a little too much of Donald Trump's coolaid.

    This is truly the beginning of the end of the Republican Party.

    America is watching is the idiot Republican leadership in Congress waste America's time and taxpayer dollars on the bogus impeachment of Joe Biden. It's more than obvious that this is all being done by the meat puppet soldiers of Donald Trump. Voters will remember this wholeheartedly in the next election. What to hell has happened to the Republican Party!

    Yesterday Wrong Ron Johnson made a complete ass out of himself on CNN by saying that the Democrats had posted fake electors many times when questioned which times and for whom he had absolutely no answer because he's full of crap and he's a liar and got caught in his lie. WTF is wrong with the Republican party! Is it mandatory to be an outright lier to be hold Office in the republican party?

    Here's yet another example of a "fine" Republican American just like Tommy BlubberVille.

    The Sarasota School Board on Tuesday will vote on a resolution that urges board member Bridget Ziegler to resign, saying that her continued presence poses an “irreparably harmful distraction,” as her husband is the subject of a police investigation for sexual assault and rape.

    As a co-founder of the far-right group Moms for Liberty whose re-election to the school board last year was boosted by extremist groups like the Proud Boys.

    Ahhh Republican Politicians - They just seem to be a certain kind of people.

    This is one of the most insane things I've ever seen a congressional representative perform.  How can we allow 1 member hold the whole country hostage?  How can we allow 1 member to put the country in such a national security crisis.  

    When did the voice of the People of this country die?

     Oh wait... how could I forget:

    • "Citizens United"... one of the final nails in our coffin of this dying democracy.

    • The Electoral College which negates the voices of the majority.

    • Congressional members who spend 40% of their time fund raising, 40% of their time on vacation or junkets, 20% of their time trying to get media coverage... 

    • Congressional members who are "purchased" by lobyists - how could "We the People" ever afford those price tags!

    and on and on and on...

    I'm old enough to remember when Republicans were strong on national defense and would stand up to the Soviet Union. Now Republicans kowtow to Putin and are known for sucking his cock

    Tuberville’s block borders on treason with regard to the jeopardy that it puts America’s defense system through.

    He is useless and in fact a threat to our national security. He should go back to the gridiron where his actions cause no damage. Voters should be ashamed.

    Here's yet another example more Republicans like Tommy BlubberVille peddling lies and bringing down the government of The United States of America.
    Hannah Giles, the chief executive of Project Veritas Is stepping down after it has become obvious to her that the whole Veritas organization is engaged in criminal activity. Veritas is the company that edited together bullshit videos to get them to say whatever they wanted and pedal them as news to Fox News which ran them as news. It's incredible how the whole Republican system is based on lying and bullshit. And it looks like the whole damn thing is starting to unwind from top to bottom. I don't know what the hell happened to the Republican party where it went to hell in a handbasket but that's exactly where it is, it's pathetic. The Republican party needs to be totally dismantled and replaced with something that actually matters. Something not based on complete and utter lies and something that somehow benefits America and not defiles it like the Republican Party does right now.

    I oppose Sen. Tuberville's blocking military placements as it totally harms our military! Tuberville has chosen to place his own beliefs regarding choices over a woman's body over seeing that our military has proper leadership! This country was set up wiwth a separation of church and state for an important reason. The original people that came to this country were fleeing religious persecution! It's sad that an Elected Official doesn't know what's in our Constitution or our History!!! Apparently no one in the Republican Party knows our Constitution or our history! I find this to be a CRIME against our Nation!! NO ONE should hold an office in our Federal Congress without having knowledge of our history and our Constitution! Tuberville placed this country in JEOPARDY with his choices! Every single Republican that abetted the 1/6 insurrection should NO LONGER hold any seat in government State or Federal according to the 14th Amendment, Section 3!

    Aside from the obvious negative issues that have resulted from this stupid stance of Tuberville's, he stands as an example of Republican idiocy. It would not have suprised me if Ted Cruz had pulled the same stunt. Different faces, same ridiculous policies that harm the american public. I am sick of Republicans and wish to be rid of the lot of them.  And thank goodness the ever absent Granger is leaving. We deserve better.

    Tommy Blubber Ville is an idiot. Just like the majority of the Republicans in office including Ken Paxton who is now trying to hide from the fact that he's preventing women from getting abortions who need them desperately to save their own lives. Ken Paxton is an absolute pig. I am so sick of demagogue Republicans who are nothing but liars

    I support Senator Tuberville's block. These promotions should be individually considered. In addition, taxpayers dollars should NOT be used to fund abortions nor should those taxpayers dollars be used to cover expenses involved in traveling round trip for those choosing to end the lives of their children.

    Our "elected" officials need to start representing ALL of the people in their precient, county, district or state, not just the ones paying for the re-election campaigns. Tubberville placed our country in peril due to an issue on which most women oppose his views. Do they not count?
