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.

After Facebook Censors ANTIFA Warning Video, Georgia Congressional Front-Runner Doubles Down with TV Ad Buy

Marjorie Greene will not stop exposing ANTIFA no matter the consequences.

Georgia GOP Congressional candidate Marjorie Greene is doubling down after Facebook censored her video calling out ANTIFA domestic terrorists and refused to allow her to promote it on their monopoly platform.

“This content also violates our violence and incitement policy within our Community Standards. You can read more about that here. This post will be removed,“ Facebook told Greene’s campaign after they attempted to promote a video about the far-left terror group.

This is the video released by Greene that Facebook does not want you to see:

Even though social media has censored her message, she is continuing to push the message about the evils of ANTIFA, a group which has supplanted ISIS as the top threat to the American national security. She released an explosive new ad that could potentially potentially millions of Georgians before the upcoming primary election next week.

“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!”

The full ad can be seen here:

Moreso than perhaps any other candidate running for office in the United States, Greene’s messaging is congruent with the White House with regards to ANTIFA. President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr recently announced that they would be treating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization, a move that Big League Politics has been advocating for years.

“It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it. The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protesters, as well as all other citizens,” Attorney General Bill Barr said in a statement about the violence.

“It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances. Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed,” he continued.

Greene is running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in Georgia’s 14th Congressional district against several competitors. The primary election is set to take place on June 9.
