Mitt Romney Stabs Trump In Back, Introduces Bill To Block POTUS From Taking Funds For Border Wall

by Paul Goldberg

Republican Senators Mitt Romney and Mike Lee are not happy Trump is taking money earmarked for their state to build the southern border wall.

So, in a disloyal and cynical ploy, they have co-sponsored a bill that will stop Trump from diverting federal funds to border wall construction going forward.

Basically, they are saying the Democrats will come around and play ball. Which will never happen.

Their bill is called the Article One Act and it will severely restrict the ability of POTUS when it comes to national emergencies.

Look, Congress gave away its power and good luck getting it back – believe me, the Dems use the power when they win the presidency so they will not give it up without a fight.

That said, Romney should show grace and class and courage and come and say that Trump taking money from a red state shows the bipartisan nature of the fight and that we all have to make sacrifices to protect our border.

What could have been a leadership moment for Mitt turned into just another cynical media moment. Sad.

From KSL:

Utah GOP Sens. Mike Lee and Mitt Romney said the Air Force told them Wednesday that money appropriated by Congress for the Hill projects would instead be spent on the wall as a result of President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration in February. Both senators had urged the Defense Department to protect funding for the Utah projects.

“Congress has been ceding far too much power to the executive branch for decades and it is far past time for Congress to restore the proper balance of power between the three branches,” Lee said in a statement.

Pentagon officials on Tuesday said the Defense Department would redirect $3.6 billion from 127 existing military construction projects to build about 175 miles of wall on the southern border.

Lee said his proposed Article One Act would correct the imbalances caused by the National Emergencies Act.

The bill, co-sponsored by Romney, would automatically end all future emergency declarations made under the National Emergencies Act after 30 days unless Congress votes to extend them. Congress now can cancel an emergency declaration only by passing a resolution that withstands a presidential veto.

Romney said he is “disappointed” that despite the concerns he and Lee raised, the projects will be “delayed.”

“Funding the border wall is an important priority, and the executive branch should use the appropriate channels in Congress, rather than divert already appropriated funding away from military construction projects and therefore undermining military readiness,” he said in a statement.

Dear Mittens and Clown Lee. Go pound sand, we have already spent $190B on illegal aliens this year. $5B for part of a big beautiful wall to prevent it from being $300B next year pays for itself you financially illiterate tools. This has no chance of getting signed so you are wasting your time dimwits. All you did is make us hate you more than we already do

Romney’s a snake and everyone knows it. And Attorney General Bill Barr demands an endop to what’s called “nationwide injunctions” which empower lone sympathetic judges to stop the enforcement of federal laws. You can read it at the Wall Street Journal dated September 5, 2019 titled “End Nationwide Injunctions.”

Of course this won’t stop the DeamonRats from continuing their fight aganist the President as so far they’re issued 25 nationwide injunctions aganist Trump and A,G. Barr doesn’t have the power to stop them.

POTUS just appointed his 160th judge to the Federal Courts. By the time he’s done, the number will be 200, and hopefully – he’ll get 3 SC justices.

The only reason Romney is a Senator is because of his Mormon buddies in Utah, he couldn’t run in his home states because he screwed the hell out of people with his healthcare plan, now he screws Trump because he’s jealous of Trump, Romney thought he should be president even after he ran a piss poor campaign…Romney is a LOSER and it’s Trump in 2020….Yeaaaa…

Coming from mittens I am not surprised. But I am shocked that Mike Lee is stabbing the president in the back. Lee seemed like a good conservative. I hope this bill does not gain traction. And can’t Trump veto the bill anyway to keep his ability to build the wall and protect America?

Mike Lee has joined the anti-Trumpers of late. He really has shed his ‘conservative’ skin.

Mitt “The Spinless little Shitt” needs to be flushed away…. There’s a population of Mormon’s in Northern Mexico – and that’s where the sack of RINO Feces was originally from. Wonder what his ties to that cult are, and if he benefits from it. Just Imagine – a MExican wants to block the wall. Any surprise there?? Like they say: Something’s fishy… and the fish rots from the head. Wouldn’t be surprised if he is buddy-buddy with Carlos Slim.

POTUS needs to out this bastard – permanently. Remember – this creepo inaugurated the Beta form of OBamacare when he introduced RomneyCare in Taxachusetts. I’m sure that rollout was the model for Balack Insane Homobama “Affordable Care Act” (ever notice the cynicism they use in naming legislation?). He’s a globalist so-and-so without much imagination. He was truly born with a silver spoon in his mouth (his father was the Head of American Motors before he drove it out of business, selling it’s last one remaining asset [JEEP] to Chrysler. Then, he went on to become the Governor of Michigan….where they lilterally now have speech police in Ann Arbor, and the largest islamic population in the country. He’s an elitist tool, but I have not yet seen his name on the Epstein Island “guest list”. (https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1170005909143261184.html)

I can think of NO PLACE or people that are better off than they were because of anything this lying underhanded, sack of crap has done. How much money does he take from Soros, and how much time talking to the likes of the Bushes and Rinofaggots Paul Ryan and Kasich?

IF he had a sudden heart attack, MVA, or any other COD I wouldn’t shed a tear.

Mitt Romney, the Mormon freak, has always been a tin-eared politician dating back to the time he ran against Ted Kennedy for Senator in Massachusetts in 1994. This guy is as worthless a politician as there is.

looking back i should have known that a guy who would live in massachusetts and advocate taxpayer funded healthcare for all would definitely be a miscreant.

romney and mccain are the two worst of the right of center politicians in my 71 years and no one else is even close. globalist shills bough and paid for by those who would do harm to america.

rant over.

Like all establishment Republicans in Congress, these two hate Donald Trump because he’s an outsider who upset the apple cart in Washington. They are perfectly content with the status quo, which includes open borders which threaten our nation security and sovereignty. They continue to believe their arrogance and self centered egos will ultimately win against the Democrats, which reveals they stopped living in the real political world a decade ago. Obama and the deep state own them, they just fail to realize it. They must be voted out of office if the Republican Party is to ever survive.
