Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued an enraged rebuke of President Donald Trump’s “America First” foreign policy on the Senate floor on Thursday.
Romney refused to give President Trump any credit for a brief ceasefire that was finalized yesterday following negotiations between Vice President Mike Pence and Turkish President Recep Erdogan. He denounced President Trump in stronger terms than he ever denounced former President Barack Obama while on the campaign trail in 2012.
“The ceasefire does not change the fact that America has abandoned an ally,” Romney said.
“Adding insult to dishonor, the administration speaks cavalierly, even flippantly, even as our ally has suffered death and casualty. Their homes have been burned, and their families have been torn apart,” he added.
Romney, who was a massive proponent of the disastrous Iraq War, grew even more unhinged in his rhetoric against President Trump from there.
“This is a matter of American honor and promise. So too, is the principle that we stand by our allies, that we do not abandon our friends. The decision to abandon the Kurds violates one of our most sacred duties. It strikes at American honor,” he said.
Romney believes that the U.S. should keep being the world police in order to keep the evil Rooskies at bay.
“Iranian and Russian interests in the Middle East have been advanced by our decision. At a time when we are applying maximum pressure on Iran, by giving them a stronger hand in Syria, we’ve actually weakened that pressure. Russia’s objective to play a greater role in the Middle East has also been greatly enhanced. The Kurds, out of desperation, have now aligned with Assad. So America is diminished, Russia, Iran, and Assad are strengthened,” Romney said.

Much to the chagrin of the “Never Trump” warmonger, a resolution against President Trump removing troops from Northern Syria was blocked in the Senate yesterday by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), the non-interventionist who is the most prominent supporter of Trump bringing the troops home.
President Trump is also refusing to back down, making it clear that his intentions are to serve the American people instead of the War Party.
“You know, we’re in many countries, many, many countries. I–I’m embarrassed to tell you how many. I know the exact number, but I’m embarrassed to say it because it’s so foolish. We’re in countries–we’re protecting countries that don’t even like us. They take advantage of us. They don’t pay; nothing,” Trump said while addressing reporters at a Wednesday press conference.
“So you have Syria and you have Turkey they are going to argue it out. Maybe they’re going to fight it out but our men aren’t going to get killed over it. And just one other thing–they’ve been fighting for hundreds of years. This has been going on for hundreds of years,” he added.
115 House Republicans Sign Onto Effort to Remove Neocon Liz Cheney as GOP Chair
Cheney’s unfit to lead.
A majority of House Republicans have signed onto a letter expressing no confidence in GOP conference chair Liz Cheney, following the neoconservative Wyoming member of Congress’ vote to impeach President Donald Trump.
115 Republicans have signed onto a ‘no confidence’ letter, a strong majority of the House’s GOP caucus of 211. Ten Republicans moved to betray President Trump on the sham impeachment, which is only slated to proceed in the Senate now that Trump has left office. The Senate lacks the jurisdiction to convict a private citizen, although Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer hopes to bar the 45th President from running for federal office again.
House conservatives have more than 115 signatures on their petition aimed at removing House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her leadership position, a senior GOP aide tells me.

Cheney has since been officially censured by the Carbon County, Wyoming Republican Party, with the latter expressing their strong disapproval in Cheney’s betrayal of President Trump.
"The censure resolution passed in a unanimous vote by the 45-member central committee."

Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, now lacks the support to act in a leading capacity of the Republican Caucus. She’s already attracted a primary challenger, Wyoming State Senator Anthony Bouchard.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has declined to move against Cheney, opting to keep her in a position of leadership even after betraying the President and her party. Establishment neocons such as Cheney are hoping to move the Republican Party back to a globalist vision of ‘invade the world, invite the world,’ attempting to sweep President Donald Trump’s governing vision of “America First” under the rug.
Cheney Republicanism no longer represents a way forward in the Republican Party.
