Donald Trump Jr. Leads #ExpelMitt Campaign After Romney Announces Vote to Convict the President

Published

on

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) betrayed his family, his country, and his oath with his announcement today that he will be voting to convict President Donald Trump in the impeachment trial.

Romney cloaked his cowardly decision in religiosity, claiming that it was his deep faith that brought him to his conclusion to join the witch hunt launched by the Democrats.

“I take an oath before God as enormously consequential,” Romney said while holding back tears. “I knew from the outset that being tasked with judging the President – the leader of my own party – would be the most difficult I had ever faced. I was not wrong,” he said.

Romney denigrated the arguments of President Trump’s defense team, reciting Democrat talking points about “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

“To maintain that the lack of a codified and comprehensive list of all the outrageous acts that a president might conceivably commit renders Congress powerless to remove such a president defies reason,” he said.

Even though Romney claims that he supports a “great deal of what the president has done” and votes with him “80 percent of the time,” he intends to vote to impeach Trump anyway because he says that’s what God would want him to do.

“I’m sure to hear abuse from the president and his supporters. Does anyone seriously believe that I would consent to these consequences other than an inescapable conviction that my oath before God demanded of me?” Romney asked.

Romney concluded with a diatribe that demonstrated his extreme narcissism and grandiose sense of self-importance.

“With my vote, I will tell my children and their children that I did my duty to the best of my ability, believing that my country expected it of me,” he said – adding that history will remember him as among the senators who chided Trump for committing “grievously wrong” actions.

Of course, Romney rushed to the fake news media to criticize President Trump in a coordinated roll-out designed to hurt the GOP.

“The president did in fact pressure a foreign government to corrupt our election process,” Romney told The Atlantic. “And really, corrupting an election process in a democratic republic is about as abusive and egregious an act against the Constitution—and one’s oath—that I can imagine. It’s what autocrats do.”

Romney made it clear his problems are with Trump’s anti-globalist policies as president, and he maintains a vendetta against Trump because of his new-found pariah status within the GOP.

“The letters with Kim Jong Un didn’t seem to frighten people away … The meeting with the Russian ambassador in the White House right after the election didn’t seem to bother people,” Romney complained.

“I get that a lot—‘Be with the president,’” Romney said. “And I’ll say, ‘Regardless of his point of view? Regardless of the issue?’ And they say yes. And … it’s like, ‘Well, no, I can’t do that.’”

Romney has done himself no favors, and the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., is leading the campaign to expel Romney from the Senate.

Big League Politics reported about an effort that may result in Romney being recalled from his position in the Senate:

As Mitt Romney grandstands in the U.S Senate’s doomed Trump impeachment trial in an effort to demonstrate his own moral superiority, the Utah legislature is mulling a measure that would allow the state’s citizens to recall their senators.

The measure could hypothetically be used to recall Romney from office. Such a possibility is an acute irony, considering Romney appears to be the only Republican senator enthusiastic about impeaching President Donald Trump.

Rep. Tim Quinn of Heber City introduced the bill in the state house. Utah doesn’t currently have a process to recall sitting U.S Senators, a problem his legislation would solve.

He says the bill isn’t designed with any specific Senator in mind, but it’s hard not to imagine the measure being used to impeach Romney, considering the Never Trump senator’s extreme unpopularity in his own state.

HB217 would create a system in which Utah voters could set up a recall election to remove senators. 25% of active voters in the state would have to sign a petition requesting a recall vote, which would take place during the next scheduled election. Senators are immune from the prospect of a recall election within a year of their initial term.

Considering that almost half of Utah Republicans don’t approve of Romney’s representation in the Senate, it’s more than reasonable to imagine a quarter of the state’s population voting to remove the failed presidential candidate, whose connection to Utah has always been dubious.

Romney’s days may be numbered after committing political suicide with his vote to convict President Trump today.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes

If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.

Published

on

Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.

McSally announced the resolution, titled the ‘No COVID-19 Relief, No Pay Act‘ on Tuesday.

Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.

If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.

Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”

Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.

There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.

McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
