Believe it or not RINOs remain convinced that they can dictate to Republican voters who it is that should represent the party in the 2024 Presidential contest. But in truth, nothing could be further from the truth! Especially when you stop to consider that it was many of these very same people who, if they voted at all in 2020, likely voted for ‘Creepy Joe’ Biden. And if that does not make crystal clear their piss-poor judgement, then I’m afraid nothing ever will. But, of course, that hasn’t stopped them from trying, as they are determined to prevent President Trump’s return.
And it’s outgoing RINO senator Pat Toomey who said on Friday that former President Trump should not be the 2024 Republican nominee. And it was in so doing that Toomey again repeated what we’ve often heard from other RINOs saying, “I think that the future of our party is to be a party of ideas, and not to be a party about any one individual, and I think we will learn a lot from the next set of primaries. I think after what happened post-2020 election, I think the president’s behavior was completely unacceptable, so I don’t think he should be the nominee to lead the party in 2024.”
And when he was challenged on whether, or not, he is a conservative fighter who puts American first and not globalist interests, Toomey responded that he is “a conservative Republican by any objective measure…by looking at my views compared to that of a traditional conservative Republican.” And it was Toomey who then proceeded to actually fault President Trump for reshaping the Republican Party into a workers’ party that is more interested in raising wages, stopping illegal immigration, allowing school choice, and defeating Communist China’s powerful rise.
Toomey did admit that it was his brand of republicanism that had failed to win votes during the horrendous ‘BO’ era, but he said, “It is President Trump who departed from Republican orthodoxy and conservative orthodoxy in a variety of ways. I stuck to the conservative views that I’ve had for a long time, he had a different point of view on matters such as trade and sometimes immigration and other things.” However it’s those who are the least bit familiar with Toomey’s entire tenure in the Senate who would likely argue that he really hasn’t been much of a conservative.
Toomey then criticized President Trump for his Afghan policy of withdrawing U.S. forces with contingencies. And it was on that point that he said, “My view is we had gotten to a point, and we could have sustained a very modest presence on the ground, extremely low rate of casualties, and we hadn’t had a death in Afghanistan in well over a year, a modest cost monetarily. For that price, we would have supported the Afghans who were actually the tip of the spear, the ones fighting, and could have prevented the re-emergence of terrorists from a Taliban-controlled state.”
Toomey’s dislike for President Trump likely stems from a difference on trade policy; Toomey favors more globalist trade policies that President Trump has argued do not benefit the American worker. It was back in 2016 that Toomey had said, “To the extent that he can improve existing trade agreements from the American point of view, that’s great, I’ll be in favor of that. But if anyone comes along and says we should put a 40 percent tax on imported goods, that’s a very bad idea, and I’ll oppose it.” And as we all know President Trump disagreed and was proven right.
And that did not stop Trump from putting “America First,” as the president would label his trade policy. In January 2020, the Trump administration imposed tariffs on 16.8 percent of all goods imported into the United States, infuriating Toomey. And in ‘retaliation’ Toomey was one of the cadre of RINOs who voted to impeach President Trump in 2021 joining with six other RINOs, supposed because of President Trump’s perceived influence on the January 6 Capital Hill riot. Which, as we all know, was nothing more than another act of obvious betrayal to those who elected them.
And it was after this blatant act cowardice that Toomey said, “A lawless attempt to retain power by a president was one of the founders’ greatest fears.” And he added, “His betrayal of the Constitution and his oath of office required conviction.” Which was a rather odd thing to be hearing from a guy who, as a sitting U.S. Senator, actually has, on more occasions than any of us care to count, betrayed “the Constitution and his oath of office” Toomey will not be running for reelection because I’m quite sure that, like Jeff Flake a few years back, he knows he can’t win.
Yet Toomey continues the mantra of President Trump’s “completely unacceptable” behavior. Would that be like giving $85 Billion in American weaponry to a bunch of terrorists and abandoning God knows how many Americans essentially behind enemy lines? Or importing millions of foreign invaders, refusing to comply with constitutional obligations like enforcing immigration laws? Or, the blatant molesting of children or running an organized crime business and taking bribes from Communist China? Apparently not, as that is the “completely unacceptable” of our current *president.
Donald Trump never made the presidency about him, it was the Democrats and RINOs who did that. He made it about America and the America people. He did what those, like Toomey, had long promised to do but were either too scared, or unwilling, to do. And he pushed back against a system and criticized those who have long concerned themselves only with keeping their seat on the gravy train and who put the interests of other countries ahead of the American worker with their lousy trade deals and policies that sent our manufacturing overseas, putting Americans out of work.
Donald Trump was the first president in recent memory who not only kept the promises he made as a candidate, but he exceeded them. And why was that? Because he possessed something that these RINOs lack, a genuine love of country and of his fellow Americans. ALL of them, not just the white, or the black, or the male or the female, but ALL of them. And he possesses the courage and the will to do that which a president and elected officials in Congress are supposed to do, look out for the best interests of the nation and people, not themselves and their many cronies.
And President Trump knew who he worked for and what it was he was hired to do. RINOs like Toomey have either forgotten or simply don’t care, because they constantly lie to the people, refuse to defend conservative ideals against a radical Democrat Party and their socialist agenda. Donald Trump is exactly the man who should be president and it’s Toomey, and those like him, who should not occupy any seat in Congress. They don’t respect the people they work for, nor do they adhere to their constitutionally mandated responsibility to defend and uphold the Constitution.
Finally, these RINOs would not be in the position they are in, and therefore have the opportunity to sabotage our constitutional Republic, had people not elected them. People who continue to vote for those like Toomey, or Romney, or Collins, or any other individual known to be a traitorous RINO are simply accomplices in the destruction of their own country. Voters MUST now demonstrate the necessary courage to turn their backs on those who continually turn their backs on them. You can’t keep voting for the same candidate hoping this time they will do what’s right.
