15 Republicans Stab Trump In The Back

Image credit: thenation

A new Senate bill is circulating that aims to reduce the amount of power the President Trump has to declare national emergencies. What’s worse is that it’s led and supported by Republicans.

Claiming that Congress need to reclaim lost power, Republican Senator Mike Lee is pushing the bill. 

“If Congress is troubled by recent emergency declarations made pursuant to the National Emergencies Act, they only have themselves to blame,” Lee declared in a statement. 

“Congress gave these legislative powers away in 1976 and it is far past time that we as an institution took them back,” he continued. “If we don’t want our president acting like a king we need to start taking back the legislative powers that allow him to do so.”

Even the name of the bill is abrasive. An acronym for “Article One,” it reads: “Assuring that Robust, Thorough, and Informed Congressional Leadership is Exercised Over National Emergencies Act.”

The bill would permit Congress 30 days after a national emergency was declared to vote to extend it. If an extension wasn’t agreed upon then the emergency decree would automatically terminate.

Currently 15 Republicans are backing the bill and they include Sens. Chuck Grassley, Thom Tillis, Joni Ernst, Pat Toomey, Ron Johnson, Jerry Moran, Lamar Alexander, Ben Sasse, Roy Blunt, Rob Portman, Todd Young, Mitt Romney, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz and Roger Wicker. 

The only upside to this unfortunate break in party lines is that even if the bill should pass, it will not affect President Trump’s current emergency declaration over border security.

    • People want what? Want the POTUS to keep the power of Emergency Action, or not? And the saying is: ” It is useless as a bore hog having a third tit”. Actually, as long as Trump can use the Emergency Action on the Boarder with this new legislation and it stops all others I think I am for it. But the Purpose of the original bill was because Congress can not get its act together to make any major decisions in ample time to act on an Emergency. That is unless it is gun control or aboritions or entitlments and they can legislate them in seconds.

  1. 1st: Frances, it’s boar hog. Boar denotes the male of several species. Bore indicates that someone or something bores you.
    2nd: These turncoats deserve to be voted out if they do not listen to their constituents. We WANT THE WALL and this seems to be the only way to get it done in the current political climate. The Dems are obstructing. That’s usually what they do. But for 15 Repubs to push this is simply disturbing. Ted Cruz, are you listening? I voted for you (at least 3 times so far) but unless you change your mind, no more. I will support a challenger in your next primary. Guaranteed. And I will urge as many other voters to follow my example.

    • thank you for your English lesson, but the truth of the matter is either form of the word works to describe these democraps wearing Republican clothing. Why don’t we band together and throw them out and vote in some true conservatives with some back bone to truly represent the people of this great nation. This situation sure makes met glad that President Trump won the Republican nomination to run for the position of being the 45th president of this great nation. Just think of the night mare we could be in if one of these weak backed bobo’s got the nomination. If that had happened we would be under the rule of witch Hillary. And we would not be in Kansas any more, we would be forced to live in her dream land of night mares.

  2. I want to know who these republican scumbags are because its time them pay. I am calling for all patriots to go after these useless scumbags and take them out.

  3. the 15 RINO’s mentioned may now K.M.A. You are not true Patriots. You are not True Republicans and you damn sure are not TRUE AMERICANS. You 15 may K.M.A. along with all of your democratic socialist buddies (comrades)

  4. My understanding is that we still have quite a number of “national emergency” declarations still in force some 20 or 30 years after a president made the declaration. This seems pretty silly to me. In my thinking the only one that could possibly have been real was the one by GW Bush after 9/11. Today, perhaps the huge national drug overdose deaths epidemic might possibly be one that could be justified.
    I think the Senators who are thinking about the future and the future of our system of checks and balances under future presidents are being completely sensible about it.

  5. I agree, Ted Cruz you are off my list as a Republican! You can call yourself a back stabbing crappy dem wanna be.

  6. If Ron Johnson backs this bill he will have a tough time to getting we elected in the future. He should (must) follow party lines!!

  7. What’s boring is when someone always wants/needs to correct someone else’s’ mistakes. Correct away; I’m sure that I’ve made some kind of grammatical error.

  8. Now ! wondered why the Republicans got defeated this time by he Democratics, they stiffed him in the back, which I say is wrong, McConnell and Ryan is what done it and they should resign, but I think Ryan has done that already; I call that a BACKSTABBER. What has Trump done so wrong that they done this and has given Nancy a run away,

  9. These 15 “Republicans” are actually RINOs (Republicans in Name only). They, along with their many comrades in the House of Representatives is the reason that prior to the last election (when Republicans lost their majority in the ouse) “Republicans had a “Majority” in both the house and Senate but Trump still was not able to pass the agenda voters elected him to pass. In addition to running against the Democrats in the next general election, The Republicans should be running real REPUBLICAN candidates against these RINOs in Republican Pr imarys. Also, MORE should redone to stop voter fraud in ALL future elections.

  10. Now ! wondered why the Republicans got defeated this time by the Democratics, they stiffed him in the back, which I say is wrong, McConnell and Ryan is what done it and they should resign, but I think Ryan has done that already; I call that a BACKSTABBER. What has Trump done so wrong that they done this and has given Nancy a run away,

  11. I will be letting my senator know how disgusted I am with him . The rest of you had better too . They are the ones who are working with the democrats to destroy America . If Ted Cruz continues this . If he thinks he had a hard time last time he will have even a worse day . Here are the traitors to America

  12. Why did Congress let Obama give all that money away to Iran and why did they let Obama take money out of our social security and nothing was said. But we get a president in the White House that is the best we ever had and they go through hell to stop him.
    Democrats are radical and they hate the American citizens..those 15 Republicans are really Democrats. They run as Republicans so they can get elected then they vote democratic every time.

  13. Draining the swamp is an amazing job. I commend out President for taking it on and continuing to fight hard. He has my total and unwavering support. The fifteen are just part of that swamp along with many others. Like Phil in TX, I’m surprised at Cruz. Go get ’em President Trump.

    • Some people want these policies. Not all Americans want this. We have three co-equal branches of government. This was set up by our founders, for good reason.

  14. Both of my Senators here in Iowa, Grassley and Ernst have lost my support. They two of the 15 turncoats.They in my oppion are no different than the Democrats.

  15. I am a Trumper and gave up being a republican some time ago. I continually get requests for donations from various republicans either email or letters. The one I delete and the other goes into the circular file. The so called GOP makes me sick. They don’t seem to care about our country even less than the democrats at times. I will not support in any way, shape or form any member of the so-called republican party. I will support the best president this country has ever had only.

    • Robert, I hear what you are saying, and I feel the same way you do about the republican party. However, if we do not support them, we get the democrats, and poof, the end of Trump being able to do anything at all. It is a vicious circle. I have told the RNC they are not getting a dime from me until they are all supporting Trump. If they can’t get the rhinos to vote for what is best for the country, they are of no use to the people, and are guilty of giving these rhinos funds for their deceitful campaigns. I love Trump. We all elected him knowing he had warts….they ALL do….but he does love this country in a way I do not believe most of them truly understand. I stand with Trump and will vote for him again.

  16. You republican senators that do not support President Trump 110% should resign as worthless RINOs. After 8 years of no government, where Fake News was a nightly occurrence, you are giving away the only chance of MAGA. As a Eisenhower Republican and a Taxpayer for over 60 years and a former Republican Chairman of Pct 396 and 427. Republicans that can’t stay together make me sick! Secret RINOs are a discrace.

  17. Many Republicans are not conservatives. some of them are part of the so called DC Swamp.
    If No wall , we will vote them out in next election

  18. As a Republican voter for 60 years, these 12 RINOs show how poor their education is. I was in Saudi Arabia during Desert Shield and lived in kingdom for several years. You do not treat the Saudi government as you would a European. We built that country brick by brick and have a obligation to keep it on track.

  19. I agree. With you the republicans are not true republicans, they are in it for themselves only. I am going to give up my Republican party, no more I go for the guy who works for America. End of story.

  20. The “writer” (I use the term loosely) should learn the difference between “effect” and “affect.” Effect is a noun. The proper word in the last sentence should be “affect.”

  21. Seems the USA has lost its way, as the Democrats seem to wish to obstruct the PEOPLE who VOTED for the President. Democrats wish to adopt European politics where politicians vote on a whim, not the Will of the People!!
    Democrats have more in common with Commie Liberals than Patriotic AMERICANS…who VOTED INTO THE WH President Trump, after EIGHT YEARS OF A LIBERAL!!
    USA realised Obama socialism not for the USA!!!
    Hence PRESIDENT TRUMP ELECTED BY LANDSLIDE!!!
    W hat bit of Rule of Law by CONSENT do Commie Liberals NOT UNDERSTAND!!!

  22. I hate trump. He is not my president, and I encourage everyone to acknowledge his horrible traits and unworthiness to be president. He is an evil, self-centered, self-serving bigot who does not belong in the oval office. Go get yourselves a president that is honest and respectable and then we can come together behind him. Until then, I will voice my opinion about how awful our president and his “policies” are.

  23. I wrote all the names down and will not vote for these people for anything they run for….Not true loyal conservative or Republicans, Demorats stick together right or wrong, Republicans are back stabbers for their own gain….

  24. Wait all you gripers. This won’t affect Trump’s current declaration. If this bill would have been passed in Bush’s term Obama could NEVER have done DACA or PACA — both patently unconstitutional. It’s the repubs who back the dems bill to nullify Trump’s declaration that should be chastised.

  25. People want what? Want the POTUS to keep the power of Emergency Action, or not? And the saying is: ” It is useless as a bore hog having a third tit”. Actually, as long as Trump can use the Emergency Action on the Boarder with this new legislation and it stops all others I think I am for it. But the Purpose of the original bill was because Congress can not get its act together to make any major decisions in ample time to act on an Emergency. That is unless it is gun control or aboritions or entitlments and they can legislate them in seconds.

  26. I have mixed emotions about this bill. I think what Lee is stating in his legislation is, Allowing Trump to use the current bill for Emergency Action on the Wall, but amending the use of Emergency Action in the future by forching Congress to make an up or down vote on it before it can happen. If that is the case, then the wall gets fianced, but if a roge demon got to be POTUS they could not use Emergecy actions with out consent of Congress which has to be done within a week. On the surface that sounds only right? Think about it! What government Emergency is so important that it cannot be addressed after a week? Declaration of War is not part of it.

  27. I regret that we don]t have a national vote on congress and the senate I see so many that need to be removed from office but I can’t do anything about them.I can cast my vote in Tennessee I see two on this list of15 I will never vote for them again.

  28. There are a lot of jerking comments and it seems they are mostly from men, and I am taking that as being younger men who don’t yet have A CLUE!!! Maybe they don’t have A CLUE about anything, except for their themselves.” I WROTE THE NAMES DOWN OF THE the 12 Republicans, so as to not ever forget the “Traitors”!!! Romey is BY FAR the wooooorst person in this group, and just to let Romney know, The People called “We The People” know Who You Are and What You Are. Don’t forget that Romey!!! And as for this person called Mike Lee, also from Utah, just what does the Deep State and Romney have on you that you, in your stupidity, would write such a bill??? HUH??? Shame on YOU, Mike Lee!!! WHERE WERE YOU, LEE, WHEN OBAMA HAD HIS 13 NATIONAL EMERGENCIES??? And all of the other National Emergencies in past years–WHERE WERE YOU, LEE???

    And Collins, why don’t YOU step down and get out of the Senate, PLEASE!!! When you are supposed to vote on something with the Republicans, YOU, Collins, want to be a Cry Baby and vote with the Democrats. Then, Collins, JOIN THE DEMOCRATS who are for the EVIL New World Order, although some or most of them are just toooooo DUMB to know what is going on, because they are there just for their OWN rear ends and making money or maybe getting paid by the Deep State to go against THE People and President Trump!!! Every time you go against President Trump, you are putting a KNIFE IN THE BACKS OF EVERY DECENT HUMAN BEING IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and for What, a little bonus from the Deep State or from Whomever FOR WHATEVER–WHAT DO THEY PROMISE YOU, COLLINS???

    And for the other nine (9) senators, plus McConnell (the TRAITOR), none of you are worth the powder to blow you straight up!!!! Have you gotten your checks or bonuses from the Deep State yet???

    I hope each and every one of you 13 senators (including McConnell) lose in your next election, as you care nothing for the People of this Country, and YOU are supposed to be working “for” The People in this Country–not the Deep State, etc.

    Something for the guys that made comments, thinking this is no emergency, and for the NO-GOOD 13 senators that went against President Trump, NOW JUST WHAT ABOUT the babies and children brought across the border, and in a couple of weeks or so, or immediately these children get into the hands of pedophiles who rape, torture, kill/sacrifice these babies and children in their Satanic Illuminati rituals–WHAT ABOUT THE BABIES AND CHILDREN–and mostly no one ever even knows what happened to them–because the pedophiles try to keep it all hidden–EXCEPT FOR NOW WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMP IS GOING AFTER THEM AND A LOT OF PEDOPHILES HAVE BEEN CAUGHT, AND A LOT OF CHILDREN HAVE BEEN SET FREE!!! The United States of America CAN’T WAIT FOR THE LAZY CONGRESS TO DO ANYTHING, AND THE NEXT LITTLE VERSE IS THAT ONE-THIRD OF CONGRESS ARE SATANIC PEDOPHILES!!!

    AND, WHAT ABOUT THE SEX TRAFFICKING, AND THEN WHEN THEY DON’T WANT THEM ANYMORE, THEY ARE KILLED AND THEIR ORGANS ARE SOLD. WE CAN’T WAIT AND LET THIS GO ON!!!

    AND, WHAT ABOUT HUMAN TRAFFICKING, AND AGAIN THE SAME AS WITH THE SEX TRAFFICKING, WHEN THESE HUMANS ARE NO GOOD TO THEM ANYMORE, THEY ARE KILLED AND THEIR ORGANS ARE SOLD!!! WE CANNOT WAIT ANOTHER DAY!!!

    WHAT ABOUT THE DOPE CARTELS??? Why should we let these EVIL PIECES OF GARBAGE GET BY WITH THIS AND GET MILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, BECAUSE OF THE STUPIDITY OF THE UNITED STATES, AND THE DUMBNESS AND LAZINESS OF THE CONGRESS. WE CAN’T LET THIS GO. IT HAS TO BE STOPPED RIGHT NOW!!!

    AND, we do not want or need all of these Illegal Immigrants who bleed us dry with benefits, debit cards for their food, shelter, and whatever, and taking OUR jobs, which they in no case can do better than the Citizens of the United States!!! The Mexican Government offers all of these people a place in Mexico, jobs, etc, but no, they want to come to the United States and grab a little kid or kids so they can get in here!

    We don’t have enough water to take care of these MOOCHERS, meaning Illegal Immigrants!!!

    It appears that None of you No-Good Senators live in Border States, so it is a pretty good guess you have no idea in HOLY BLANKETY BLANK BLANK what people in these border states have to put up with because of NO-GOOD, LAZY, JERKING SENATORS that can’t do their jobs.

    IF YOU 13 SENATORS (INCLUDING MC CONNELL) CARED ABOUT THE PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES, AND CARED AT ALL ABOUT THE PEOPLE IN THE BORDER STATS, YOU WOULD HAVE DONE YOUR JOBS, OR AT LEAST GOTTEN HELP TO DO YOUR JOB, SO THAT OUR GREAT PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP WOULD NOT HAVE HAD TO HAVE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY, AND NOW YOU NO-GOOD SENATORS HAVE KNIFED OUR GREAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IN THE BACK AND FOR WHAT, A BONUS FROM THE DEEP STATE? OR, ARE SOME OF YOU AFRAID OF WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO YOU, AND THAT IS WHY YOU WENT AGAINST OUR GREAT PRESIDENT TRUMP.

    I just have to wonder how many of you 13 senators (including McConnell) will be able to enter into the Pearly Gates. It doesn’t matter if you think you don’t believe in God, or Heaven, or the Pearly Gates, the fact remains that there is a Heaven and there is a Hell and pretty sure there are Pearly Gates.

    I want ALL OF YOU SENATORS THAT VOTED AGAINST THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY AND ALL THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE MADE COMMENTS AGAINST THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY HERE FOR THIS ARTICLE, to think about how these little kids feel when a pedophile gets a hold of them and what they have to go through, being scared to death by some SICK pedophile, and then having to die, JUST BECAUSE THEY CROSSED THE MEXICAN BORDER AND PEDOPHILES CAUGHT THEM OR BOUGHT THEM MORE THAN LIKELY. This bothers me the most of all. AND ALL OF THE SENATORS AND ALL OF THE REPRESENTATIVES THAT VOTED AGAINST THIS NATIONAL EMERGENCY WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH THIS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES, AND THIS WILL BOTHER YOU VERY MUCH DAILY–UNLESS YOU HAVE SOLD YOUR SOUL!!! Think about the babies and children being raped and sacrificed, the people in sex trafficking and the people in human trafficking, and the MILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS THESE EVIL CROOKS ARE MAKING–let alone all of the Illegal Immigrants that are bleeding the United States dry in every way they can–we can’t do this one more day!!! ALL OF THE ABOVE is hurting the decent, hard working people of the United States of America. THE WALL HAS TO BE BUILT, AND THEN THE WALL ON THE NORTHERN BORDER HAS TO BE BUILT ASAP!!!

    • Beverly,
      HOORAY, HOORAY, HOORAY,….
      YOUR READ WAS FANTASTIC…
      IT PULLED ALL OF WHAT I AM FEELING AND SO RELIEVED
      YOU PUT IT OUT THERE!!!
      THANK YOU

  29. Thom Tillis, you vote with Democrats, you are a Democrat and I won’t vote for you again. All the other Republicans that do not stand with the President, you need to be voted out also.

  30. At least the USA has the Constitution and the BILL OF RIGHTS written into LAW!
    Americans are able to check their constitution to check how politicians are acting…for or against the PEOPLE!!
    Recently in the uk over 60% of voters voted OUT of the EU.
    Brit Politicians are fighting not to obey what THE PEOPLE INSTRUCTED THEM TO DO!!
    T his could not happen if the UK has the rules of law written down as the USA does
    The USA has WRITTEN DOWN what Americans have to abide by, and STILL t he Democommies seek to undermine the American way of life!!
