Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has quickly become a favorite of conservatives across the country as a freshman lawmaker due to his laudable and heroic military record, but his voting record in Congress does not measure up. He is more John McCain than Donald Trump when it comes to matters of public policy.
Crenshaw proved this yet again after he voted in favor of a Democrat-backed bill that passed by a 272 to 158 margin in the House yesterday to potentially allow millions of third-world Venezuelan socialists to be granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS) in the United States.
Crenshaw joined House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Rep. Ilhan Omar (R-MN) to support H.R. 549, a measure that would open up the flood gates by giving asylum to Venezuelan migrants who have supported socialist dictators in their home country for decades. The Trump administration is firmly against the legislation.
“We would not want to open the floodgates for them,” an administration official told Breitbart News. “The Vice President, the National Security Council, and the President all share the same position, which was articulated by Ambassador [John] Bolton over the weekend, which is our priority is that Juan Guaido be elevated into power and [Nicolas] Maduro leave.”
The Trump administration is currently trying to revoke the TPS status for 300,000 Central American migrants, proving that this status is only temporary until the migrants arrive on U.S. shores. This problem may get a lot worse in the near future, thanks to Crenshaw and the Democrats supporting this legislation.
A strong conservative lawmaker, Freedom Caucus member Mo Brooks (R-AL), tore the bill to shreds while speaking on the House floor:
This bill proposes a tsunami of people coming to our country who are ill-equipped to support themselves. And, let’s put that into the perspective of where we are a nation. We just blew through the $22 trillion debt mark earlier this year. This year, we are looking at a roughly $900 billion deficit. A deal that has been reached that will only increase our deficit by $2 trillion over the next two years pushing our debt up to $22 trillion. This is money we do not have, have to borrow to get, and cannot afford to pay back.
How does that relate to H.R. 549? Well, let me share some numbers with you. Sixty percent of households with a lawful immigrant in them are on welfare, living off the hard work of others. Seventy percent of illegal alien households are on welfare, living off the hard work of others here in the United States of America.
The same effort in the Senate is being spearheaded by ‘Little’ Marco Rubio (R-FL), who is allying with 23 Democratic Senators urging Trump to worsen the immigration problem immeasurably.
“Granting TPS to Venezuela is a concrete measure your Administration can immediately take to alleviate the suffering of innocent Venezuelan civilians and to demonstrate our nation’s commitment to supporting a safe democratic transition in Venezuela so that individuals can safely return home soon,” the senators wrote in a letter addressed to President Trump.
Crenshaw also betrayed President Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda earlier this month when he voted in favor of legislation that would reward visa abuse and vastly expand professional employment green cards for immigrants primarily from India to provide cheap labor to multinational corporations.
‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’
This is what real conservative leadership is all about.
Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.
Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:
Each risked his life to expose the crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State against the American people.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) November 27, 2020
Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.
“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.
“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”
Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.
Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.
One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”
AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”
… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.
Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
