Rep. Matt Gaetz Addresses Critics on War Powers Vote: ‘Trump Called Bush a War Criminal. And Then Won’

Gaetz is sticking his neck out to support an “America First” foreign policy.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is getting criticized for his support of a war powers resolution meant to stop President Trump from attacking Iran without a formal declaration of war from Congress.

Gaetz has caught the ire of pro-Trump partisans, including Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, for joining Democrats to support the measure that was passed by Congress yesterday. He was one of only three Republicans to vote in favor of the resolution.

“Matt Gaetz, a Republican who the president has spoken out in support of, Gaetz himself has been supportive of the president, and then today, to go along in a symbolic B.S. resolution vote against the president?” Dobbs said on the Thursday edition of Lou Dobbs Tonight.

“It’s mind-boggling to me, and certainly it’s gonna damage his credibility among conservative allies and people that have supported him, including us,” said veteran Republican consultant Ed Rollins in response to Dobbs.

Gaetz is defending himself, explaining how there needs to be push-back from Congress against endless wars, and that President Trump ran as the anti-war candidate to get into the Oval Office.

Gaetz, who supported the drone strike that assassinated Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, explained on Tucker Carlson Tonight that his support of the war powers resolution was meant to push back against the interventionist foreign policy that has been so costly throughout the years.

Gaetz noted on the House floor that “this resolution offers no criticism of the president — no critique. It doesn’t criticize the president’s attack on Soleimani. Matter of fact, this resolution doesn’t even say Soleimani’s name it.”

“But it did say that if any president wants to drag our nation into another forever Middle East war, that they require the approval of the United States Congress,” Gaetz explained to Carlson. “That’s something that I deeply believe, and I think it’s something the president deeply believes.”

Gaetz has emerged as one of the leading advocates of an “America First” foreign policy that stays out of globalist affairs and focuses on solving problems domestically.

He explained his outlook on foreign policy in detail at a veterans’ event last year:

Today our military is over-stretched, over-deployed and over-exerted. Growing up where I have, I’ve seen my whole life what endless deployments and unfocused wars really mean for our most patriotic fellow Americans.

Tearful airport goodbyes. Bargaining with God for the safe return of loved ones. Parenting disrupted. Marriages destroyed. Extra psychiatrists needed at our schools. Drug abuse. Domestic abuse. Veteran suicide. Shattered limbs, broken hearts and grieving families at Walter Reed Hospital. Caskets draped in flags. Gold Star families in mourning. Roads, parks and halls of learning named in permanent reverence for the fallen.

The ‘fog of war’ is no fog to me, or any of the 700 thousand people I serve. It is not hazy. We see the impact of war everyday among the people we love who shape our lives. It is a stark reminder that the unmatched freedoms we enjoy are not free– they are bought with the blood of American patriots. And it is our solemn duty and highest responsibility to make sure that this sacred currency is spent only when absolutely necessary. Unfortunately, prior to the election of Donald Trump, our decision makers have fallen short of this standard, demonstrating a tragic recklessness with the treasure of our nation and the blood of our patriots.

Gaetz’s principled decision has angered some Republicans, but it is clear that the patriotic Congressman is putting country first when making votes in the U.S. House.

Anti-Trump RINO Nancy Mace Supports Retooled ‘Equality Act’ in Attempt to Dupe Conservatives

Mace is a disgrace.

Published

Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) is supporting a watered down version of the Democrats’ “Equality Act” in an attempt to dupe Republicans into supporting the anti-conservative social justice legislation.

Former Delaware senate candidate Lauren Witzke is drawing attention to Mace’s latest sell-out as she attempts to drive the GOP away from Trumpism:

“RINO low IQ idiot, Congresswoman Nancy Mace is trying to repackage the Equality Act so the Republicans can pass it without getting backlash,” Witzke explained in a post on Telegram. “Same policy, different wording. Leave it up to republicans to raise the worst bill in U.S. history from the dead instead of lighting [its] corpse on fire.”

Mace went on the record for the Washington Examiner to virtue-signal on why she supports the legislation in an article written by the infamously boy-smitten LGBT activist Brad Polumbo.

“I strongly support LGBTQ rights and equality,” Mace told me. “No one should be discriminated against.”

Mace made it clear that helping trannies become mainstreamed in society as they push to convince little children to change their birth gender is a priority of hers.

“It isn’t a black-and-white issue,” she said, “I do believe that religious liberty, the First Amendment, gay rights, and transgender equality can all coexist. I’m also a constitutionalist, and we have to ensure anti-discrimination laws don’t violate First Amendment rights or religious freedom.”

“I have friends and family that identify as LGBTQ,” Mace added. “Understanding how they feel and how they’ve been treated is important. Having been around gay, lesbian, and transgender people has informed my opinion over my lifetime.”

Mace wants to give LGBT members additional special privileges so she can receive plaudits from the mainstream media, even if it may be completely opposed to the long-standing principles of the GOP.

“There can be that balance,” Mace insists. “The Fairness for All Act … do[es] just that,” she offered. “We put in protections for religious liberty.”

Big League Politics has reported on how Mace threw Trump under the bus as she denied the existence of voter fraud in last year’s election:

Freshman Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-SC), who ran as a pro-Trump Republican to obtain Congressional office, has emerged as the most vicious Never Trumper in the chamber.

Mace is leading a purge against her colleagues who opposed the certification of dubious electoral college results last week. Mace even wants the deep state to investigate one of her colleagues in what is an egregious violation of her colleague’s 1st Amendment rights.

Mace first attacked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), a freshman pro-Trump lawmaker who has received frequent attacks from the fake news media. Mace repeated debunked talking points that Greene is a member of the QAnon movement, whose adherents were involved in last week’s Capitol siege.

“I’m disgusted by what you and other Q-conspiracy theorists did last week in the chamber after all of the violence,” Mace is reported as saying on a text thread featuring freshmen GOP lawmakers.

After Greene mentioned Black Lives Matter terrorism and told Mace “don’t believe the fake news,” Mace responded back with a rude, catty and unprofessional quip: “Literal QAnon lady trying to deny she’s a QAnon lady.”

… Mace is not content on merely insulting pro-Trump reps. She actually wants the deep state to investigate her pro-Trump colleagues and potentially charge them for supporting the president’s rally last week.

Mace is making even Dan ‘McCain 2.0‘ Crenshaw look good by comparison. The Trump-led GOP should consider putting her scalp on the wall so-to-speak during next year’s primary elections.
