With 11 Republicans joining all Democrats to send the bill back to the House
Posted BY: Jasmine | NwoReport
The United States Senate voted to enshrine the right to same-sex and interracial marriage into federal law on Tuesday.
The Respect For Marriage Act passed on a 61-36 vote. Eleven Republicans voted with Democrats on the measure.
It now heads back to the House of Representatives, where it’s likely to pass the Democrat-controlled chamber swiftly enough to head to President Joe Biden’s desk before the current Congressional term is over.
Democrat Senator Tammy Baldwin, who helped spearhead the bill, appeared emotional on the chamber floor before the final vote.
Other Democrats dressed in symbolic shades to mark the historic legislation, with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer wearing the same tie he wore to his daughter’s same-sex wedding and Senator Kyrsten Sinema coordinating her outfit to represent the colors of the bisexual pride flag.

‘The Senate just passed the Respect for Marriage Act! This is a huge win in the fight to protect marriage equality,’ Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal said in a statement after Tuesday’s vote.
‘There’s no time to waste. The House must act swiftly to get it to the President’s desk.’
I would like to know what the legal thinking/rationale is behind this bit of legislation. Marriage is a State’s issue in this federal constitutional republic; has nothing to do with the federal government’s limited and delegated powers, aka enumerated powers. But I do note that the federal government has a role to play regarding interstate matters. I would like to see how the proponents of this legislation developed their justification for the federal government’s role in this matter. Too many Americans have been poorly educated in the workings of their governing structures (e.g., see how long Roe remained mistakenly on the books); it would be a good educative lesson for them to know the arguments in this case.
P.S. It’s all about to be made moot anyway. The current federal government, since the 2020 elections, is an illegally-sitting government, which wrong still needs to be righted. This country’s government was overthrown in a bloodless coup d’etat via that stolen election, and nothing that the current government passes as law – or via E.O. by the Usurper-in-Chief – will stand, once Justice is served. Which it will be. Which. It. Will. Be.
And that goes for the BHO ‘administration’ as well; who was and is not constitutionally eligible for that federal office, for not being a ‘natural born’ citizen. Another, albeit related, subject. And maybe then we will learn – albeit the hard way – what it means to live by the rule of Law.
