Congressional RINOs Fail to Override Trump’s Emergency Measures for Border Security

Fourteen GOP representatives voted with the Democrats to cancel Trump’s national emergency declaration for border security.

President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency on the US southern border will not be impeded by the obstructionist Congress, as Democrats were not able to get the necessary number of Republicans to flip in order to override Trump’s veto.

The Democrats in the House were able to garner a substantial majority in votes for their measure, 248-181, but ultimately fell short on Tuesday of the two-thirds needed to override Trump’s veto of a Democrat-pushed resolution to nullify Trump’s emergency measures declaration.

Trump released a tweet this afternoon thanking House Republicans for standing strong behind him:

Trump’s unity message omits the fact that not every House Republican stood with him. There were 14 Republicans – Justin Amash of Michigan, Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin, Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington, Will Hurd of Texas, Dusty Johnson of South Dakota, John Katko of New York, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington, Tom Rooney of Florida, Jim Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin, Elise Stefanik of New York, Fred Upton of Michigan, and Greg Walden of Oregon – who voted with the Democrats to stop emergency measures.

Rep. Amash, the Palestinian-American Congressman who protected Robert Mueller’s hoax investigation of Trump and even talked favorably of impeaching the President, opposed the emergency declaration because he apparently believes it’s unconstitutional to protect the border.

“If your faithfulness to the Constitution depends on which party controls the White House, then you are not faithful to it,” Amash said.

Amash’s partner-in-crime in Michigan, Rep. Upton, also voted with the Democrats today. Like his turncoat buddy, he hid behind the Constitution to do so.

“I have been a strong supporter of funding for border security and the wall … But like I have said, the Constitution is clear that spending originates in the Congress,” said Upton, who was a ‘Never Trumper’ that joined Amash in calling for Trump to quit weeks before the 2016 election, said in a statement. “That’s why I voted to override the President’s veto. Using a national emergency and taking money without Congress’ sign-off is an end-around and sets an unfortunate precedent.”

“This was not the process envisioned as written in the Constitution by our Founding Fathers,” he added.

Although the backstabbers failed at stopping Trump’s border security declaration, it still has many hurdles to go through in the biased, left-wing courts before it can ultimately be put into action. Democrats in Congress have boasted that they will continue their obstruction efforts as soon as they are allowed to do so under the law.

“In six months, the Congress will have another opportunity to put a stop to this President’s wrongdoing,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) said in a joint statement.

Pelosi and Castro will have a hard time finding more RINOs in order to obtain success in opposing border security, as the majority of the Republican Party stands firmly behind their President.

“Keeping our nation secure should be the president’s very highest priority. With President Trump, there is no question he has and will continue to carry out this priority,” Rep. Sam Graves (R-MO) said while debating on the floor before today’s vote. “He has very clearly laid out the case for a declaration for a national emergency. There is a crisis at the border.”

This victory is a small step forward, but Trump still has a long way to go before he can stem the crisis at the border and enact his ‘America First’ agenda.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Brutalizes Ilhan Omar in Devastating Tweets Over Her Illicit Brother Marriage

Greene is the fighter conservatives have been looking for.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has not even been officially sworn into Congress yet, but she is already taking the fight to “The Squad” in ways that other Republicans would never dream.

The spat began after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) took potshots at Sen. Kelly Loeffler (D-GA), the patriotic who is fighting to keep her post as U.S. Senator during a run-off election in a state marred with unprecedented electoral irregularities.

Loeffler refused to take Omar’s abuse laying down:

Which prompted a weak reply from Omar:

This is when Greene showed up with the heavy artillery to back up Loeffler and put Omar in her place:

Omar responded by referring to Greene as “looney” for her supposed association with the QAnon movement, which has been targeted by Big Tech platforms.

Greene clapped back by putting Omar in her place, letting her know that her backward customs are not normal in the United States:

Big League Politics has reported on the political establishment’s outrage after Greene has her sights on Omar and the “Squad” that wants to destroy the American Republic and replace it with totalitarian socialism:

Facebook has censored a political advertisement from Congressional contender Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia after anti-American socialist Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was triggered by its contents.

Omar made a post about Greene’s ad, which featured a “scary looking” AR-15 rifle. The supposedly empowered feminist woman could not handle seeing the gun and demanded that her precious little feelings be protected by tech overlords as a result of her weakness…

It’s worth noting that Facebook’s representative who tweeted that the post had been censored is a Democrat operative who formerly worked for the both Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Democrats’ PAC…

The supposedly offensive campaign ad, which is said to be threatening by gaslighting leftists because Greene is holding an AR-15, can be seen here…

Another one of her campaign ads were censored by Facebook before she won her primary election. She said she was locked and loaded and ready for ANTIFA terrorists if they came to Northwest Georgia.

“ANTIFA terrorists have declared war on America,” Greene says in the ad. “Rioting, looting and burning our cities. George Soros, Hollywood elites, and Joe Biden’s staff are funding ANTIFA.”

“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”

Greene is the prototypical candidate of the Trump-led GOP. This is why the political establishments of both major parties are uniting in an attempt to stop her from being a Congresswoman.

The American republic will not be surrendered on Greene’s watch.
