President Trump tweeted yesterday morning that he was considering vetoing the Establishment's massive omnibus bill.
Then the calls started coming into the White House. Both Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell's offices informed the White House that there wouldn't be another vote. Essentially, if Trump vetoed the bill, he would be responsible for the shutdown. The GOP leadership called Trump out.
That is why during a press conference yesterday, Trump declared that he was signing the bill under duress. "I say to Congress," Trump announced, "I will never sign another bill like this again."
Lots of Conservatives announced that this was a final straw.
But be honest: who should you be angry at? Trump for being backed into a corner or the GOP establishment for backing him into that corner?
This was a Paul Ryan-Mitch McConnell hit-job all the way. Before Trump was even elected, Ryan secretly told the rest of the Republicans that he would "never support Donald Trump; not now, not ever." This spending bill was the culmination of that promise.
I wish that Trump would have stuck to his guns and vetoed it. But the fact of the matter is he never should have even received this bill.
There is a rule in the House of Representatives called the Hastert Rule. It says that no legislation should pass unless it has a majority of the majority behind it. The Hastert Rule was designed to stop RINOs like Paul Ryan, and John Boehner before him, from pushing through Democrat legislation.
When Paul Ryan became speaker, he made a simple promise: he would not push through legislation unless the Republican caucus was united behind it. He lied, plain and simple.
And then to pressure Trump into signing it? These cowards must be removed from power!
Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell stood at a podium last year and promised 12-15 billion for a border wall. Yesterday, they sent President Trump a spending bill that included NO funding for a border wall. Actually, that's not true. The spending bill does authorize spending for a border wall... in the Middle Eastern country of Jordan.
Days before Trump took the oath of office, Paul Ryan announced that the GOP would finally cut off federal funding to Planned Parenthood. After all, they put a defunding bill onto Obama's desk just months earlier. The omnibus bill that Ryan "negotiated" includes full funding for Planned Parenthood to the tune of half a billiondollars.
When Paul Ryan ran for Vice President, he swore he would always protect the 2nd Amendment and work to expand gun rights. He and Mitch McConnell agreed to let the Democrats slip a massive background check amendment into the omnibus bill, putting millions of American gun owners in the crosshairs without getting anything in return.
On issues like Kate's Law and sanctuary cities, both Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell promised action. Both measures were left on the cutting room floor this week.
On every single issue, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell stabbed you in the back this week. They gave Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer everything they wanted and then strong-armed the President into signing it by threatening to blame him for a shutdown if he didn't.
Is this what you voted for? Or are you ready to fight back and clean house!
The good news? Word is coming out of DC that the Trump administration is looking at classifying the border wall as a "national security" project so that it can use discretionary Department of Defense funds to build it.
But the fact that the President needs to use tricks and loopholes to enact his signature campaign promise when his party controls all of Congress is shameful.
These Establishment cowards never wanted Trump to win because he threatened to expose them as frauds. The last thing that Ryan and McConnell ever wanted to do was fulfill their promises. If Hillary Clinton won, they could continue using a Democrat President as the excuse for their inaction.
But with Trump's victory, they lost that excuse. So, they tried kicking the can down the road for over a year. But when push came to shove and they had to pass a budget, the GOP showed its true colors.
They must be removed from office and any Congressman or Senator who protects these RINOs has no business serving in any capacity.
And it is up to YOU to force them to remove Ryan and McConnell!
