“Kamala Harris of California, Bernie Sanders, what do these people have in common?” she asked. “These are people who are likely running for president in 2020.”

The final roll call vote was 81-18, with Sen. John S. McCain III (R.-Ariz.) not voting.

In the Senate, routine legislation requires 60 votes to end debate and force a floor vote, and there are only 51 Republicans. By withholding the votes the GOP needed to reach 60, Senate Democrats kept the “debate” open, preventing the Republicans from bringing up the House’s continuing resolution for a vote.

The Senate Democrats were holding back their support because they were demanding permanent amnesty for the young illegal aliens covered by President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Funding for the federal government expired Friday, so the government was technically “shutdown” over the weekend–until the Democratic leadership relented.

The Republicans voting against the shutdown bill that would keep the government open until Feb. 8, were: Utah’s Sen. Michael S. Lee and Kentucky’s Sen. Randal H. “Rand” Paul.

The Democrats voting to extend the shutdown were: New Jersey’s Sen. Cory A. Booker, New York’s Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand, California’s Sen. Kamala D. Harris, Connecticut’s Sen. Christopher S. Murphy, Massachusetts’ Sen. Elizabeth Warren–along with Vermont’s Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is an Independent, but who caucuses with Democrats.

Gaetz has repeatedly refused to back down from his assertion that ANTIFA should be hunted down like ISIS and similar terrorist groups:

Twitter is once again giving harbor to ANTIFA terrorists, as journalist Laura Loomer has pointed out is often the case. She has called for Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to be locked up because he regularly allows his platform to be used by the terror group to promote violence and harassment.

Big League Politics reported on Loomer’s call for action against a Silicon Valley giant that unabashedly stands with the enemies of America:

Congressional candidate and banished journalist Laura Loomer is calling for Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to be arrested because of his association with the ANTIFA domestic terrorist group.

“After censoring President Donald Trump’s tweets about violent riots, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey put #BlackLivesMatter as the header on the official Twitter Twitter account,” Loomer wrote in a post on the social media platform Parler.

Loomer noted that Dorsey has allowed his platform to be used by ANTIFA members despite the fact that they have egregiously flouted their terms of service by organizing terrorist violence and targeted harassment campaigns. At the same time, Twitter has punished conservative leaders like Loomer with lifetime bans for merely expressing their own opinions in a non-violent manner.

“Jack Dorsey is aiding and abetting terrorist organizations by allowing for ANTIFA terrorists and Islamic terrorists to have access where they are promoting anarchy and lethal riots,” she wrote.

“In the middle of a national emergency, he is also censoring the commander in chief who is posting about the army and national guard responding to the riots,” she added.

Loomer believes that there is a case for Dorsey to be tried with treason for his actions, and the feds should set their sights on him for enabling some of the worst rioting in U.S. history.

“For this, Jack Dorsey should immediately have his home raided by the feds Roger Stone style and be charged with inciting acts of domestic terrorism in America,” she wrote.

“It’s time for Jack Dorsey to be prosecuted for aiding and abetting terrorists and committing TREASON. #LockHimUp,” she added.

President Trump has announced that ANTIFA forces will be treated like terrorists, as Big League Politics has been urging him to do for many years.

It may be time for ANTIFA and their sympathizers like Dorsey to be treated like enemy combatants.
