Border Security Vote – McConnell Unleashes Two-Thirds of Decepticon Caucus to Keep Borders Open…

Delivering a targeted message from U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Dohonue, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unleashed twelve members of his Decepticon caucus to rebuke the border security efforts of President Donald Trump.

Doing what he does best, Leader McConnell held back (protected): John Thune, John Cornyn, John Barasso, Mike Crapo, Ben Sasse, Thom Tillis & Cory Gardner. However, the remaining dozen (see below) were permitted to vote against the President for Joint Resolution (H.J. Res. 46 ):

(See Full Vote Here)

The support for the U.S. Chamber’s open-border initiative is McConnell’s strongest showing yet that he controls almost enough votes to support impeachment; if the President continues to advance policy initiatives not supported by The Chamber and Business Roundtable.

Despite McConnell’s effort/threat President Trump has vowed to veto the resolution.

  (Tweet Link)

Between Tom Donohue and the Business Roundtable they spent almost $118,000,000 last year funding UniParty votes for their Wall Street initiatives and legislation.  Open-ended immigration is the holy grail for the multinationals.  Their K-Street community will not allow border security without putting up a very serious fight.  There are trillions at stake.

    IMO every one of us and hopefully that is at least a couple thousand at CTH should call each of these senators with a simple message, you voted against our President so I will be doing everything in my power to see you never hold another office in government again.

    Also now that impeachment seems to not have lost its luster in the House listening to Pelosi then PT should IMO come out swinging and roll out his deck of “Rino cards” with each Rhino face on a card to guide his supporters in voting these turn-coats out of office!

      Perhaps it was an arbitrary McConnell decision. However, I am hoping that Tillis felt the pushback from NC Treepers and other NC voters who support what POTUS is doing and made their dissatisfaction known to Tillis which helped to give him pause to ask McConnell if his vote was not needed, he would prefer to vote nay. This is interesting especially since Tillis was so public about his opposition. Burr voting nay- he is retiring so the CoC chokehold may not have been as influential for him to do the right thing and vote nay as well.

      But, what the heck happened to Lee, the so-called constitutional expert voting yea in lockstep with Romney?

            Mark Levin, a reformed Never Trumper, is also a Constitutionalist attorney with a whole lot more experience than Mike Lee and Levin says Lee is absolutely WRONG on this.

            I have never gotten over the images of Lee and his ilk at the Re-puke convention, screaming red-faced, obstructing, harassing and intimidating, trying to block Donald Trump’s nomination.

            Mike Lee has proven himself to be a little punk, cut from the same cloth as Marco Rubio. Always trying to make a statement, be in the news, throw mud and BS to try and appear important. When Lee and Rubio go after Trump, one clings to Mormonism and the other to Catholicism, claiming a much higher moral ground than everybody else. Throw Romney in and no wonder the RINO, greased palm Re-pukes are losing elections.

            Apparently, Mormons in Utah agree with the Lee/Romney political point of view: child trafficking, child rape, child murder, children across this country becoming addicted to drugs from South America and too many dying from overdoses. Does the Utah Mormon moral high ground include mass invasion of people, many carrying dangerous, deadly communicable disease? Is Utah comfortable with Section 8 housing springing up all over the country, rural hospitals going broke, jails and prisons jam packed with illegal aliens, school budgets stretched to the limit trying to provide tutors and entry level basic education to kids of all ages? Do their hearts break when they see Angel Parents standing with President Trump? Are they comfortable with tne cost each American household is forced to lay for this so-called humanitarian idea of No Borders?

            High moral ground, indeed. When Lee, Romney, Rubio, et al, worship on Sundays and pray for America, what do they pray? Apparently, at the top of their prayer requests is for God to see to it President Donald Trump its treated unfairly, UNCONSTITUTIONALLY, unlawfully and to get him out of the White House.

            It is time for every American to search their souls. It is also time for every American to consider the alternative to President Trump. Utah voters need to ask their senators if they would have preferred Hillary Clinton. Ask them if they prefer Elizabeth Warren, Corey Booker or Michelle Obama as their new president in 2020 or even in 2024. Let’s all ask our senators if they really think we will reelect them when we watch them go along with Chuck Schumer.

        • Rob Portman was one of the original members of Mitch’s cabal who met on an island off GA to oppose Trump from the get-go, also. He is a Never-Trumper. Alexander and Lee, I believe, have said they will not seek re-election. Portman, Rubio, Blunt, Toomey, and Romney were just re-elected, so Mitch thinks we will forget about this vote in four years. The rest mostly vote with the Dems usually, with Paul voting his beliefs. So they think they are safe. Let’s remember and prove them wrong. That’s quite the pot of lobbyist money per Rep to keep them in line.

I think he will ask for something in return but allowed it to go to the edge either to look like he tried to stop Trump and fell short or he wanted to show Trump that he could counter Trump anytime he wanted to. Whatever the reason Tillis backed off, it wasn’t from listening to NC voters.

        I did read her column..pretty grim. But PT has done some good things, and hopefully, he may be the start of a long term trend. That’s what we really need. If PT could achieve an inflection point so that the Republic could be saved he’d be a great President.

        But, it is reality that he has the entire DC/socialist apparatus aligned against him. So, sadly, we may be past the tipping point. Maybe the lies that the RINO party told us were very effective cover for the oligarchs and socialists to combine into a Juggernaut, a leviathan…an empire. I.e. the RINOs are the controlled opposition.

        If anybody is blaming President Trump for not keeping his promises then they are projecting and probably were opportunistic to get on the Trump train thinking that President Trump will be standard run-of-the-mill politician-president. They never thought that President Trump will actually follow-through on his campaign promises.
        If you want proof of President Trump’s resolve then look at what he has done with the economy, trade and our standing in the world where uniparty and judiciary cannot control him one bit or interfere with his agenda. I rest my case.

        There wouldn’t have been a President Cruz because he could not have beaten Clinton. I voted for Cruz in the primary but quickly realized the only person in the field of R’s who could beat her was Trump. Trump brought in many secular people. Cruz might have been a turn-off for them. Doubtful they would have voted Clinton, but many would have stayed home. Then there is the issue of Cruz born in Canada, which wouldn’t be an issue for a D, but since he’s an R, we might have had that constant drumbeat of “illegitimate president” for 4 years with him, as well, provided he won, which is unlikely for the aforementioned reasons.

        Trump has done everything within his power (and the D’s would argue, outside of his power) to fix the situation at the border. He has been bold, but blocked at every turn.

        I don’t know why you, or Coulter, would blame him. After-all, who else is there? If Trump can’t do this, none of them can. None of the rest would have the guts to fight as hard as Trump has. He may be only a stumbling block on the way to inevitable socialism and unfettered immigration, but at least he hasn’t held the door open and rolled out the welcome mat.

        People like you are the reason that Republicans never get much done when times get tough and it’s time to take a hard vote the Washington establishment knows they will have people like you backing them . you say our President has done nothing and you should not have supported him will I’m sick of your kind if you don’t get ever thing that was promised to you its bale out time how does that help our President do you know what he’s up against the Rinos sold him out after promising to past border wall funding he’s been under investigation by former administration sence he joined 2015 race ever thing he tryss to do to fix some of our worst problems he gets shot down by the courts or his own party and when he declared an emergency on our border to build his wall he took a high risk in fractioning the Rebublicans in the Senate now you can see with the vote yesterday he had 11 Rinos join the Dems and a couple more that wanted to vote with them but did not after pressure from the public to back our President so now anybody that has got one Brain cell can see that our President by declaring the emergency has given the Republicans the reason they needed to start the impeachment argument in his own caucus at least half of the GOP in controlled by Wall Street and Chamber of Commerce and they see the emergency declared by our President to be over reach and abuse of powers in reality it just gives them and excuse to inpeach our President when’s the time comes all they need is a few more votes to get to 67 and with our President knowing all this he declared the emergency anyway so he stuck his neck out for what’s right and if there is something else he could do to build the wall what would it be I’m sick of people like you giving up right in the middle of the battle I’m not trying to be mean to you I just wish you knew the facts before you attack our President we need all people on board now if our President does something wroung in good with critisume but now’s not the time to abandon our President

        There’s no doubt that on a certain topics in a certain times, Ann Coulter would have a hard time to save straight her anorexic volte-face; all that 2007-2008 drunken zigzagging from Cristie to Giuliani , and finally Romney is something that her little red dress would probably like to permanently memory hole.

        Having said that, I still do believe that Coulter’s 2015-2018 support for the First Noble Plebeian President in the modern US history was organic and instinctively driven, while her phlegmatic, party-aligned cheerleading for Mitt was just a raw politics at its worst.

        We have less than 12 years left to limit, not that climate mumbo jumbo, but demographics change catastrophe, right before the Core Americans, with only two election cycles away, permanently become a minority-majority in their own country.

  8. Lactanius says:

    There is “cause and effect” – but when that is not 100% clear, it is time to “pause and reflect.”

    All Constitutionalists understand and deeply value the separation of powers and checks and balances built into the Constitution. In some respects, Congress has “ceded” power to the courts and the executive branch. In some respects, the executive branch and the courts have overstepped their powers and the Congress has not reacted. Certainly, Congress has overstepped its powers and shirked its duties as well.

    We the people have the responsibility to keep the three branches in check and balance by way of the ballot box and by using our voices. Clearly, those who can afford to make large donations in order to finance elections can “speak” louder than even a sizable group of voices. That is not a fact to be ignored.

    For whatever reason, the Congress created The National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. ch. 34 § 1601 et seq,, which became effective on September 14, 1976. The act has been in effect for 42 1/2 years. In the act, Congress delegated at least 136 distinct statutory emergency powers for the President to act upon when he deems fit through a declaration of an emergency.

    A joint resolution to deny the emergency declared by the President must be passed by both the House of Representatives and the Senate and requires the President’s signature. The President may use his veto power over the termination resolution, thus requiring a two-thirds majority in both houses to override his veto. The two-thirds majority in the Senate is 67 members and in the House of Representatives it is 290 members.

    Currently, the House of Representatives has 235 Democrats and 197 Republicans with three seats to be filled: Pennsylvania district 12 in a special election on May 21, 2019; North Carolina district 3 in a special election on July 19, 2019 and North Carolina district 9 in a special election on September 10, 2019. If all 235 Democrats in the House vote to override the President’s veto, they will need 55 Republicans to join them.

    If all 45 Demopcrat Senators vote to override the President’s veto, they will need 22 votes from the two independent Senators and the 53 Republicans to carry vote.

    A Conviction of impeachment charges in the Senate requires the votes of two-thirds of the Senators present.

    There are some issues which the Congress has turned away from addressing: immigration law, deficit spending, writing a budget, bloated bureaucracy, oversight, profligate spending, infrastructure, dealing with Medicare and Social Security costs and funding and much more.

    President Donald J.Trump is in a war and not every one of his battles results in a rout. The average “Joe” is not in favor of an open border with Mexico. Congress might defy President Trump’s veto, but they would be handing him the hottest issue imaginable for 2020. Republican Senators Lamar Alexander, Shelley Capito, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, John Cornyn, Tom Cotton, Steve Daines, Mike Enzi, Joni Ernst, Cory Gardner, Lindsay Graham and Cindy Hyde-Smith are all up for reelection in 2020.

    The long view which extends well beyond a second term for President Donald J.Trump is the continuing struggle of the globalists against those who value national economic productivity and security.

    President Donald J.Trump is not a perfect man. I don’t know anyone who believes he is. But he takes the slings and arrows of outrageous political barbarism with remarkable equanimity. When he needs reassurance, he holds a rally and gets reenergized.

    Mitch McConnell may well be every bit of the snake in the grass that many accuse him of being. But President Donald J Trump has met the likes of him in many different people in many different aspects of his career which has always been about bringing the elements of planned development together over an extended period of time. If President Donald J Trump is reelected and Mitch McConnell is reelected in 2022, McConnell will still be there two years after President Donald J.Trump has retired.

    The development focused on by President Donald J.Trump is not about any specific players, he is focused on bringing his plan to fruition. McConnell and others may be obstacles, but President Donald. J. Trump sees them as the cards in the hand he has been dealt. We will just have to wait and see how he plays the game to its conclusion.

For all of Ron Paul’s talk of out of control government spending, the simple fact of the matter is that you don’t survive as a congressman as long as he did without bringing home the bacon to your district. So, Ron Paul would make sure his appropriations, pet projects, etc got added to various spending bills and then, when he knew his vote didn’t matter, would come out screaming and hollering and vote against it. Rinse and repeat, year after year.

            To be fair, however, when matters of constitutionality and separation of powers are at stake both the Paul’s generally, though not 100%, did/do stand on principle and vote accordingly.

Trump is perhaps getting bad advice, but what would he expect from the pro-illegals pro-amnesty advisors he surrounds himself with?

    I believe that if the veto was somehow overturned in the House, McConnell would personally whip the votes to overturn it in the Senate.

    Between the legislative and judiciary branches, the collusion of RINOs with the deep state is gaining momentum and power, and the President is more isolated than ever. JMO

        Of course it won’t happen, thanks to the short election leash on the Repub House members. My point regarding McConnell was only partial hyperbole. I believe he resents the President’s agenda, and is feeling bolder about openly opposing him.

        • Yes but, only so far.
          Symbolism but only so far. They can read and know that POTUS has incredible support from 90%+ Republicans–just not the UniParty professional pols. In the ballot box, they only have one vote each.

          And yes we can pressure them, but seems like we need to think through a way to form a bloc that would be more effective in counteracting the combined actions of CofC, Koch Bros types, etc.

    I disagree with the notion that McConnell is “ “flexing his muscles” or some such. Impeachment is off the table. That ship has sailed. Ain’t happenin’. If impeachment is off the table, McConnell has no leverage.

    This is not an embarrassment for PT. It’s an embarrassment to every senator that voted to block him or even thought about it. And I think they know it. If they don’t, they will soon find out. 45 couldn’t wait to get his first veto. “VETO!” -therealdonaldtrump

    POTUS is now the singular entity in our federal government who is trying to protect American citizens from an invasion of foreigners, all dependent, and many of them diseased and/ or with a criminal history. He is proudly opposing the majority of our elected reps to protect Americans. This is exactly what DJT was elected to do. Thank God for PT. And everyone sees it. And the majority of Americans agree with HIM. And I’m actually inclined to think that POTUS should use his executive power to close the southern border, tomorrow. Simply deem the situation as having negative impact on the country.

    Besides, not all these senators that voted to block the emergency would vote to impeach. But I don’t even see that getting anywhere near a vote.

    Unless they have us all duped and are about to say Putin and PT shared a checking out. Barring that, no pun intended, I think the tide has turned.

      Dawg:
      Good passionate comment. Your sentiments are clear but I think the Freedom Caucus and those Reps and Senators that voted in support of Trump on this issue and all others deserve some recognition also. I suspect that is how you meant it.

      POTUS is undoubtedly the highest and one of the most serious “entities in the federal government who is trying to protect American citizens from an invasion of foreigners…”
      Bit there are others like ICE & CBP on the front lines that have to take untold buckets of verbal “crap” every work day and also do their difficult jobs as they try to deal with this outrageous border crisis.

      I am thinking that maybe a wall isn’t enough, that maybe the USA should start a LARGE SCALE DEPORTATION of everyone in the USA illegally (that we can catch) no matter how long s/he has been here, how many American citizens born to him/her and even if s/he is a candidate for the Nobel Prize and can cure cancer. NO EXCEPTIONS. S/he can cure cancer and collect the Nobel in his/her home country. I’m done with it! (And my father was an immigrant. He came here LEGALLY).

    “A nation can become too stupid to survive.” (Steyn)

    This Senate vote beckons an alternate form of that old saying. “A nation can become too corrupt to survive.”

    Both quotes have become true several times in the past as not enough citizens saw the dangers until it was too late. Nowadays, it’s citizens AND tens of millions of illegal aliens.

    Politically, the USA is not that far away from the 2nd quote as the Senate vote and the Dem’s wild reckless policies indicate. I suspect most politicians are not against a wall or securing the border because they are stupid. It is because they hate Trump and/or are likely bought by those highlighted on sundance’s list and others.

    The selfish callousness of the globalists was proven without any doubt when they ignored the growing millions of unemployed and the numerous shuttered plants. A broken nation would not deter them as long as they believe they will be OK. But they won’t be!

      You are directly on-point, and your words comprise a cogent executive summary of the border protection and immigration reform debacles. Hatred for the President is broad and deep among politicos and their deep state handlers.

    Also interesting– three of them had failed primary runs against Trump. Then there’s Romney. Like Hillary, he never got over it, probably because he was forced to throw the thing on purpose, which is why he couldn’t moan about it publicly for 2+ years like Hills has. On so many levels, he can’t stand Trump won. Same with McCain, even if Trump had never mentioned his service record Trumps win would have eaten him alive. IMO this was also part of Paul Ryan’s resentment of Trump. Yet they talk about Trump’s ego.

      It is a human failing that we (at least a lot of us) can’t stand for someone to succeed where we failed. This explains Romney AND McCain. Dagnyshrug is right. Our VSGPDJT didn’t have to do anything to incur McCain’s and Romney’s ire — that he won just compounded the fact that he wasn’t one of them (moles of the Democrat Party hiding out in the Republican Party). The GOP needs an enema and an emetic.

    What would be great is if conservative researchers actually watched George Webb (and some of the others independent journalists videos), and start from a while back, in regard to the reason they are doing this. There has been a drugs for weapons scheme going on for many years, with U-1 being tip of the iceberg.(The agency also run compromise operations, so that they own these people). So, they are really trying to protect themselves; thats why so many hate him and are worried. Otherwise, it really makes no sense.If they started getting emails about that issue (with some of the details that have been investigated and documented), they might not think immigration is such a big thing; and might realize that if the public begins to really understand how all of this works, they might not just be out of office, but perhaps in jail….

  42. Notice that in the last couple of days, since the transcripts have been published, that the attacks on our President Trump have reached a frenzy and the height of viciousness.

    There is the odious Ann Coulter who has gone full out Never Trump as well as screaming headlines in the press implying that the mosque massacre in NZ was somehow caused by PT.
    There is nothing these POS won’t do to take down our President and his supporters.

    My only hope is that they are completely desperate because they now know their efforts are doomed to failure.

  43. I would like to see PDJT use dawg’s words in a DIRECT APPEAL to the public: “My fellow Americans. I believe the wall on the southern border is essential to ‘protect American citizens from an invasion of foreigners, all dependent, and many of them diseased and/ or with a criminal history.’ It will stop the humanitarian crises on the border and prevent illegal drugs from entering the country and ruining the lives of our citizens. I ask each citizen to contact your Senators to demand their immediate action to support border security. The time for action is now.”

    The facts are that the Border/immigration situation is an emergency in every sense of the word. Ask the family of the recently murdered women near San Jose, California. Since congress will not act President Trump is taking the responsible action.

    I just emailed Mitt Romney asking where I go to get my 2012 vote back. I am HORRIFIED that I voted for both McCain and Romney. Didn’t like either one of them but held my nose and voted for them. Will NEVER do that again. I voted with pleasure for Donald J. Trump and will vote for pleasure for him again in 2020 and probably 2024 (as a write in). I had rather a Democrat that admits s/he is a Democrat win than vote for a Republican who IS a Democrat and will govern THE SAME WAY just lies about it. A pox on their house!
