Freshmen Republican Congressmen are obsessing over John McCain’s legacy.
It’s well documented that Representatives like Dan Crenshaw aren’t much to write home about in terms of policies that will actually bring the country back to its limited government roots. In fact, he was one of the first to defend McCain’s legacy when Trump slammed McCain this week.
However Crenshaw was not alone.
Texas Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX21 ) joined the McCain praise fest.
Roy went on Twitter to express his disapproval with Trump’s tweets:
I disagree with the POTUS standing in front of M1A1 Abram tanks & the American flag and spending time trashing POW veteran and former US Senator McCain, and as Commander-in-Chief characterizing our time fighting in the Middle East as an unqualified disaster.
Although Roy’s response was relatively tame, it is still concerning that he feels the need to defend John McCain.
To his credit, Roy has worked diligently to address the crisis at the border. In fact, Roy has gone above and beyond the call of duty by introducing legislation to declare drug cartels foreign terrorists organizations..
Additionally, Roy at least recognizes that we should “re-think our strategy & engagement” in the Middle East.
On top of that, he has signaled his support for Trump’s policies:
I have stood by the President and will continue to do so when it comes to policies that will secure the border, drain the swamp, restore fiscal sanity, and establish healthcare freedom.
Roy should continue working proactively like he has on the issue of cartels and completely leave behind the establishment virtue signaling.
It’s a new era in D.C. and it’s time to stop invoking ghosts of the past.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election
America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.
On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
