In this the era of Trump it has become increasing difficult to determine who the bigger obstacle is when it comes to the president being able to make good on the promises he made that got him elected. The first impulse, I suppose, would be to say that it’s the Democrats that can be said to be mostly to blame, but that wouldn’t be entirely accurate. Because it has been those from within the president’s own party that have repeatedly represented the bigger impediment to the president being able to do much of anything on those things that we who elected him want him to do.
I think we all know that the time has long since passed for making our Republicans-In-Name-Only, these RINOs, extinct. And number one on the hit-list of those needing to be made extinct, is none other than that backstabbing, spineless piece-of-sh!t, Mitch McConnell. Now rumor has it that the Republicans in the Senate actually prayed the day the President was supposed to sign that absolutely horrendous spending-border bill. And it was also back then that the ‘spineless’ McConnell had promised to support President Trump with a National Emergency Declaration if he signed the bill.
Well, I’m guessing as far as McConnell is concerned, that was then and this is now. Because it’s now that McConnell seems not so sure that this declaration is even legal. This despite the fact that it’s clearly legal since the Congress ceded that power back in the 1970s to then president Jimmy Carter. If they want to change it in the future, they should, but for now, it’s perfectly legal. And it should go without saying that this is a very bad sign for the vote in the Senate to stop the declaration. If the RINOs side with the Socialists against the President, what hope does this country have?
There are now at least seven RINOs there in the Senate who apparently are none too happy about the declaration and McConnell’s comments could sway others. Vice President Pence went to the Senate on Tuesday in a last-ditch effort to convince Republicans to oppose a resolution approved by the House, also with the help of 13 RINOs, that would block President Trump’s emergency declaration to build a wall on our southern border. Mr. Pence lunched with Senate Republicans hours before the House vote, but what he said afterward was not exactly encouraging.
NBC News faux journalist Kasie Hunt asked McConnell what he thinks about the legality of the declaration. McConnell responded by saying, “Well, we’re in the process of weighing that. … I haven’t reached a total conclusion about –.” He continued, “What is not in doubt is that there really is a crisis at the border. And it seems to me our colleagues on the other side are in denial about that. And you can’t blame the president for trying to use whatever tool he thinks he has to address it. But, as of the moment, I couldn’t handicap the outcome of the vote.”
Apparently these RINOs, whether in the House or the Senate, would rather allow the Socialists to take over than to support President Trump. These pathetic turncoats let this national emergency power stay in place under Carter, both Bush’s, and Barry ‘O’, but now that it’s President Trump trying to protect our borders, they suddenly noticed they gave their power away. I find it nothing short of treasonous that these gutless wonders that we have serving as ‘Republican’ members of Congress have come to no longer serve any useful purpose in the continuing effort to save our country.
But that said, there should be no surprise here. McConnell is an old-school, dyed-in-the-wool establishment career politician. I’ve become convinced that these RINOs really have little interest in protecting our country. They’re a bunch of sniveling, lying, self-serving, sick individuals who are not worth the time of day. We must come up with a way to make each and every one of them understand that they need to start serving ‘We the People’ and not themselves nor their puppet masters behind the curtain who pay to play and give money like its Christmas to these corrupt shysters.
By choosing to vote against the president’s declaration these traitorous RINOs are once again choosing to side with those on the left who are seeking nothing less than to have America turned into what would be nothing more than another run-of-the-mill, third world shithole. They are voting to hand this country over to those who have absolutely no business even being here. These RINOs long ago decided to abandon those whom they were elected to serve, and chose only to seize upon an opportunity to enrich themselves. They are not to be trusted, they are the enemy.
McConnell is yet another example, on what has become a very long list of many, of why we need term limits. The longer these people, these supposed public servants, are in office the more prone they are to become prey to lobbyists and to being corrupted. When was the last time someone left Congress after having not made themselves substantially better off financially than they were when they started? And we just sit here and allow them to investigate themselves with nothing fishy ever seeming to turn up. Just like we’re seeing now with the FBI, the IRS and the DOJ.
McConnell isn’t an attorney determining legality, he is the Majority Leader, responsible for proceeding to support the President and his policies until such time as the Supreme Court of the United States determines the true legality of the President’s National Emergency declaration. His job to help push the Republicans, and try to influence any Democrats who don’t already have their head shoved up the backsides of Pelosi and Schumer, to support a President who is a member of his party. If he can’t find himself able to do that, he should resign and go live off his millions.
It’s insane that Republicans bicker about the difference between a crisis and an emergency. Meanwhile the Democrats implemented Obamacare on a simple majority vote. And it was McConnell who refused to reverse it and set things right with a simple majority. He claims it was on principle, which is laughable. Democrats lie, cheat and steal to move their agenda forward, our cadre of limp-wristed Republicans can’t even manage to get out of their own way. Which works? We have Obamacare, men playing women’s sports, millions of abortions and now post birth infanticide.
The Democrat/RINO swamp has re-emerged in reptilian form, seeing what is very likely its last chance to undermine the Trump presidency. But the trouble here is the fact that President Trump has a rather uncanny knack of winning against the odds. We’ve seen that play out several times, one could say it was against the odds that he won the presidency. So it should be fun to watch. But keep in mind, when Trump leaves the U.S. will go Socialist in the next election. It’s likely inevitable so no use getting excited. We are doomed long term but can fight Alamo-like to the bitter end!
