The impeachment saga has officially come to an end now that the Senate acquitted President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment.
Utah Senator Mitt Romney was the only Republican to break the ranks by voting to convict Trump.
Given Romney’s establishment track record, this was to be expected.
The Utah GOP expressed its relief with President Trump’s acquittal and did not hesitate to call out Romney for his misguided vote:
“The Utah Republican Party is pleased to see President Trump completely acquitted by the United States Senate. We appreciate the service rendered to our state by Utah’s two senators. As a party, we strongly disagree with the vote cast today by Senator Romney.”
This response was more reasonable than conservative gatekeeper Erick Erickson’s take on the Romney vote.
Erickson tweeted, “Mitt Romney is not trying to placate the media nor does he hate Trump. He’s doing what he thinks is right. I disagree with him. The people of Utah probably agree with him. He’s a good man of high character — frankly of better character than many of those who’ll assail him.”
In the Trump era, Romney has been a massive Never Trumper.
It was the height of foolishness for Trump to listen to his advisers’ recommendation to endorse Romney in 2018.
A political figure who pals around with Democrats is not someone you can trust.
The very fact that Romney is consorting with globalist Democrats makes one wonder what Romney’s views are on traditional American values such as private gun ownership and free speech. Inquiring minds would like to know.
Nevertheless, this is a good start in exposing Romney.
From here on out, America First activists should be laying the groundwork for Romney’s defeat in the 2024 primaries.
Politicians like Romney must face pain for bad political behavior.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
