The two overwhelming issues in the 2016 campaign were immigration and the border wall and the appointment of Supreme Court Justices. The two parties were at different ends of the spectrum on both. The Republicans campaigned on having Justices appointed who would fulfill the role of the Supreme Court as called for in the Constitution; that is to rule on cases and not legislate or make law which is the role of the legislative branch. President Trump and the Republicans have kept their promise that only people who would adhere to the Constitution would be nominated and approved.
We have seen the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) hatred for the Constitution in the latest hearing to fill the most recent vacancy to the Supreme Court. The actions of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) is reminiscent of the mockery they made of these hearings as they stooped to extreme lows in the Bork and Thomas hearings. Watching those hearings made any American ashamed that members of the Senate Judiciary Committee could stoop to the levels the Marxist/Progressives did.
In watching the Kavanaugh hearings we witnessed tactics by certain members on the committee that represent the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party that exhibited their immaturity, lack of decorum, and low intellectual level. It was after the hearings we learned that Feinstein's conduct during the hearings was just a charade. The way she handled the sexual misconduct accusations made against Judge Kavanaugh was equal to or maybe even below the tactics used by her party during the Bork and Thomas hearings. And now we are seeing how these collectivists will stop at nothing to accomplish their goal of nullifying the United States Constitution and end individualism.
Senator Feinstein, you should be ashamed, but of course she is not because we know, “the ends always justify the means.” It appears, however, that because her approach was so low, even the establishment Republicans will not succumb to her vile antics. It appears the establishment Republicans will keep their campaign promise.
The border wall is another story. During the campaign the Republican establishment told us how critical it is to secure our borders, primarily our southern border. Yes, they said a wall made sense, at least in certain parts of the border. Yes, they said this is a priority. The Senate voted 93-7 to pass a sweeping $854 billion spending bill that includes funding for the departments of Defense, Health and Human Services, Labor, and Education, which make up the bulk of government spending. But no funding for the border wall. Only six Republican Senators voted no. The other no vote was Bernie Sanders.
President Trump lashed out at Congress over the lack of funding for his border wall in the spending bill.
"I want to know, where is the money for Border Security and the WALL in this ridiculous Spending Bill, and where will it come from after the Midterms?" Trump asked in a tweet.
Once again, the members of the Republican establishment have broken their promise to those who elected them. Once again, the members of the Republican establishment have said they support securing the border, but just not at this time. This is the same song and dance we have heard from this group over the last at least 40 years. When will we Freedom Loving Americans say enough is enough. I would say that time is now.
The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have made clear that they do not want a secure border because they are replenishing their voter ranks with illegal aliens as the black voter leaves the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party. What is your reason Republican establishment members?
Another promise not kept.
The Republican-controlled Congress is moving to enact a Defense appropriations bill that has morphed into a multi-agency "minibus" and continuing resolution that funds Planned Parenthood and research that uses fetal tissue taken from aborted babies. We were also promised that the Republicans would cut spending and provide no funding for Planned Parenthood.
Another promise not kept.
