The newest establishment darling of the Right, US Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), has rushed to John McCain’s defense after he was hammered by President Trump for colluding with the deep state and the Democratic Party to undo lawful results of the 2016 elections.
Crenshaw, who has already earned the moniker McCain 2.0, has been one of the most vocal critics of Trump’s non-interventionist foreign policy. Crenshaw clearly favors a more hawkish, belligerent foreign policy approach similar to that of the late Arizona maverick.
There is just no reason to be talking about Senator McCain after he has passed. He is not your poltical enemy Mr. President.

Crenshaw is recycling the old neocon era line that “we have to fight them over there so we don’t fight them over here” that made the George W. Bush administration such a laughingstock over a decade ago.
The situation in Syria does not warrant complete withdrawal. We can’t effectively maintain security or intelligence collection from Iraqi bases.
We go there so that they don’t come here, it’s that simple. Hold the line.https://t.co/bAbX8CtpEL

@RandPaul is giving the President bad advice.
There are those of us who have sacrificed for our nation, who know the importance of this terrorist threat and the need to stay vigilant.

Crenshaw has issued several op-eds through the mainstream media to counter-signal the President and his foreign policy directives. Shortly after Trump announced he was removing troops from Syria, Crenshaw wrote a piece for the Washington Post that closely echoed the McCain “100 years” approach of endless war.
He actually brought up Osama bin Laden, who was built up with US military backing to fight the Soviets in an Afghan proxy war, as a reason to meddle in the Middle East. We need to create more Osamas to stop the Osamas of the world, Crenshaw seems to believe.
The Texas Representative claims falsely that Obama pulled the plug on Iraq when that never actually happened, and it was this non-event – not the unconstitutional neocon-led invasions – that caused so much calamity in the Middle East. This talking point may be convenient for partisan Republicans wishing to whitewash GOP complicity in creating havens for Islamic terrorism abroad, but it does not match up with the reality of the situation.
Crenshaw also conveniently neglected to mention how regime change operations in Iraq and Libya created the power vacuum in the first place allowing groups like ISIS to rise.
It was only after President Trump cut off Obama’s policies of supporting Islamic terror groups in Syria that ISIS could be crushed. Stopping the meddling is what achieved the results, not intervention like Crenshaw claims. The same goes for North Korea where Trump is achieving the impossible through engagement and diplomacy.
Crenshaw’s military service record is admirable, and he does seem to have Trump’s back on the immigration issue. The man is undeniably an American hero, but when it comes to foreign policy, he is much more in line with neocons Bush and McCain than he is with Trump and his ‘America First’ agenda.
Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump
The GOP is crumbling.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is warning that at least one-third of GOP senators will revolt and leave the party if Republicans join Democrats to convict the president.
This would potentially create the most viable third party in recent political history if Republican leadership is foolish enough to go down this path. Even though he refused to oppose the vote steal last week, Paul claims he and many of his colleagues intend to leave the party forever if the Senate goes through with impeachment.
“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul said while appearing on FOX News on Friday night. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”
“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul added. “This isn’t about, anymore, about the Electoral College, it’s about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”
Paul made these responses after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) publicly flirted with the idea of voting to convict President Trump.
“I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell said.
Paul is putting McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership on notice. This is the line in the sand as far as he is concerned.
“They will destroy the Republican Party. If leadership is complicit with an impeachment or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul said.
“Like I say, I have opposed President Trump when I thought he was wrong, I’ve been for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency, and impeachment is purely a partisan thing,” he added.
The full segment with Paul and host Laura Ingraham can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on the division within the GOP since 10 Republican turncoats in the House join Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time:
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added…
Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”
The realignment that is happening within the conservative movement might result in the destruction of the Republican Party. President Trump may ultimately destroy the GOP swamp.
