The purpose of this article is simply to point out the 41 members of the Senate who pose a threat to America. Don’t confuse relative brevity with being trivial! Let’s explore.
On Thursday the Senate voted on H. J. Res. 46. The resolution, which passed 59-41, was to negate President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency on the southern border in order to steal funds from other projects to build his wall after Congress had explicitly denied him said funds.
Regardless of how you feel about the wall, the future implications of Trump’s action or the existence of a national emergency there was a much greater core issue at stake: the Constitution. All members of the Senate take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. The original and never amended text of the Constitution separates the powers of the three branches of government giving the legislative branch the power of the purse.
Here are the 41 Republican Senators who participated in anti-American activity by casting nay votes on H. J. Res 46: John Barrasso and Mike Enzi of Wyoming, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, John Boozman and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Mike Braun of Indiana, Richard Burr and Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy of Louisiana, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas, Kevin Cramer and John Hoeven of North Dakota, Mike Crapo and James Risch of Idaho, Steve Daines of Montana, Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Deb Fischer and Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott of South Carolina, Josh Hawley of Missouri, Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi, Janes Inhofe and James Lankford of Oklahoma, Johnny Isakson and David Perdue of Georgia, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Martha McSally of Arizona, Pat Robert of Kansas, Mike Rounds and John Thune of South Dakota, Rick Scott of Florida, Richard Shelby of Alabama, Dan Sullivan of Alaska along with Todd Young of Indiana.
19 of the 20 Republicans up for reelection in 2020 voted with Trump and against the Constitution. They are: Moore Capito, Cassidy, Cornyn, Cotton, Daines, Enzi, Ernst, Gardner, Graham, Hyde-Smith, Inhofe, McConnell, McSally, Perdue, Risch, Rounds, Sasse, Sullivan and Tillis. Many of them are vulnerable in November but they seemed more afraid of what Trump might do to them in a primary situation. Political survival (even if it is just to get through or avoid a primary) was much more important to them than their country or their word.
The Constitution is the basis of all law in America. If you don’t believe in it you should probably leave the country and you certainly don’t belong in the Senate. If you vote in Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, or West Virginia remember that this fall.
