Texas Congressman Chip Roy Urges Trump to Ignore the Swamp and Print Citizenship Question on the Census

Rep. Chip Roy thinks Trump is making a big mistake by capitulating on the census.

The Trump administration announced today that they will be acquiescing to liberals by removing the citizenship question from the upcoming 2020 census, in what the fake news media is calling the “biggest defeat of his Presidency.”

“We can confirm that the decision has been made to print the 2020 Decennial Census questionnaire without a citizenship question, and that the printer has been instructed to begin the printing process,” DOJ attorney Kate Bailey told the opposing counsel in the census litigation.

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) believes this capitulation is wholly unnecessary and is urging President Trump to re-consider.

Roy is fighting the liberal spin on Twitter on behalf of lawful Americans, and wants the President to show the same courage.

By capitulating on the census, Trump is going against the will of the voters. A Harvard CAPS/Harris poll that was released on Tuesday shows that a super-majority of voters, 67 percent, believe the U.S. government ought to be permitted to ask U.S. residents if they are lawful citizens on the census.

Trump has changed his tune from a series of Tweets that he issued just last week, which made it seem like he was ready to fight an incomprehensible Supreme Court decision.

“I have asked the lawyers if they can delay the Census, no matter how long, until the United States Supreme Court is given additional information from which it can make a final and decisive decision on this very critical matter,” President Trump tweeted.

“Seems totally ridiculous that our government, and indeed Country, cannot ask a basic question of Citizenship in a very expensive, detailed and important Census, in this case for 2020,” he added.

“Can anyone really believe that as a great Country, we are not able the ask whether or not someone is a Citizen,” Trump asked to highlight the ridiculousness of SCOTUS decision. “Only in America!”

A potential silver lining to the ruling in Department of Commerce v. New York was Chief Justice John Roberts’ assertion that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross may use his discretion provided by the Constitution’s enumeration clause, the Administrative Procedure Act, and several acts of Congress governing the census to include the census question under a different pretext.

“I expect that the Trump administration’s Commerce Department and Department of Justice could well be back before the Supreme Court’s next term begins in October arguing for the question’s inclusion, and they could well win and include the question,” Richard Hasen wrote for Slate before the Trump administration’s capitulation.

Rep. Roy is hoping that he can spur Trump into reversing his decision and to continue the fight by pushing for another SCOTUS ruling before the census is issued without the crucial citizenship question in 2020.

Sen. Josh Hawley Folds? Blames Trump for ‘Inflammatory, Irresponsible, Wrong’ Comments

Hawley is no leader.

Published

on

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been criticized for leading the GOP’s electoral college objection amidst widespread allegations of voter fraud, and he has responded by throwing former President Donald Trump under the bus.

Hawley issued a statement to oppose the impeachment of Trump following the conclusion of his presidency, which is unprecedented and unlawful, in which he threw Trump under the bus and essentially blamed him for the violence in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

In the aftermath of the violence, many left-wing voices accused Hawley of sedition and treason for asking for an investigation into a laundry list of irregularities that have been widely ignored by authorities.

There have even been calls by Democrats to revoke the will of the people by ejecting Hawley from office in order to punish him for drawing attention to voter fraud, as Big League Politics has reported:

Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.

Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.

Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.

On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.

“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”

According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.

Hawley finally caved under the pressure, and he has shown he is not the man to take the reigns to lead the America First movement after Trump.
