President Donald Trump performed magic by cleaning up government.
He has undone many of the treasonous acts of Barack Obama, and that’s just for starters.
Another thing Trump managed to do is rid government of many Congressmen and Senators. Interestingly, most term-limited themselves.
But while Trump caused a mass exodus of swamp rat politicos, he also created a new and improved version of the political frauds. We documented three of these fakes in Kansas who ran as Republicans, then switched parties.
Soon after the races were certified, they switched parties to become ‘Democrats’ in the State Legislature.
Kirsten Sinema ran as a moderate in Arizona, while in reality she’s as radical Leftist as they come. But our problems are not just with Republicans who switch or Democrat frauds. We have those among us who wear “Republican” openly, yet behave as Democrats openly.
We got a chance to review the names during Trump’s “compromise” spending bill.
You simply can’t compromise more than Trump did. His bill contained $5.7 billion in border wall funding, something he continually asked for. In return, he offered a three-year extension of the DACA program for illegal aliens and temporary protective status (TPS) protections.
The Democrats offered an alternative bill that provided no funding for the wall. They requested the president to fund the government through February 8. That bill failed for obvious reasons.
For spending bills to pass the Senate requires a supermajority vote of 60 Senators. With the GOP controlling 53 Senate seats, at least 7 Democrats would need to join Republicans for any spending measure to pass. Nevertheless, on Thursday, six Republican Senators voted against Trump and backed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s plan. Those senators are listed below, and shouldn’t shock any of us.
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN)
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)
Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO)
Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA)
Sen. Lisa Murkowksi (R-AK)
This list should look familiar to all Republicans, because it’s always the same.
The only change is the addition of Mitt Romney, who has now become the new John McCain of the Senate.
The New York times asked a few questions about Romney:
Mitt Romney, the incoming senator from Utah and former Republican presidential nominee, revived his rivalry with President Trump on Tuesday with an op-ed essay in The Washington Post in which he said Mr. Trump “has not risen to the mantle of the office.”
For Romney to make this comment shows just how deranged he remains. My professional opinion is Romney is jealous of Trump.
Trump has more than risen to the mantle of the presidency. And in every way.
America hasn’t been more powerful in the world than we are at this moment. And it’s not because of our refurbished Trumpian military, but moreso because of our Trumpian economy.
Of course Romney knows how well Trump has performed. Yet he remains stuck on “style”. This is why “Republicans” like Romney don’t win in the end, even when they win.
The article continues,
Days before joining a Republican-controlled Senate, and as the 2020 presidential race begins to take form, Mr. Romney issued a pointed critique of the president’s character.
“With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable,” he wrote ahead of his swearing-in on Thursday. “And it is in this
The timing and tone of the piece set off widespread speculation online, with some suggesting that Mr. Romney aimed to position himself as “the new Jeff Flake,” the departing Republican senator from Arizona who publicly tangled with Mr. Trump.
At this rate, Romney will befall the fate of Bill Kristol, George Will, Jonah Goldberg and other anti-Trumpers or Never Trumpers. It’s just a matter of time.
The president threw Romney an olive branch early on, inviting him for a post-primary loss meeting or perhaps a post-election meeting. Apparently, Romney remains butt-hurt.
The president tweeted at the time of Romney’s article:
“Question will be, is he a Flake? I won big, and he didn’t. He should be happy for all Republicans. Be a TEAM player & WIN!”
The Times speculate about a Romney presidential challenge:
Others asked, was Mr. Romney, a two-time presidential hopeful, signaling he might try to challenge the president in the 2020 Republican primary election?
That will not happen. President Trump will have no serious challengers. And I will make a further prediction. All six of these Senators will change their tune over the next two years, and join President Trump in his smashing of Democrats.
