The bad guys were thwarted yet again.
On Thursday, Senate Democrats failed for a second time to block a national emergency that President Trump declared along the southern border.
While a majority of lawmakers had previously voted in favor of a resolution to terminate the emergency, when it came time to vote, the globalists lost. They were unable to override President Trump’s veto.
Senators voted 36-53 to uphold Trump’s veto.
Democrats would’ve needed at least 20 Republicans to back them up in order to hit the 67-member supermajority needed to override the veto.
Below are the 10 GOP anti-American globalists who voted with the Democrats to try and stop President Trump’s border wall. It’s the usual cast of characters, led by traitors Mitt Romney, Mike Lee, and Marco Rubio.
53-36 The #Senate did NOT pass S.J.Res.54 (National Emergency Declaration), notwithstanding the objections of the President to the contrary.

Congress fell short Thursday in its second attempt to end the national emergency President Donald Trump declared to secure money for his proposed border wall.
Both chambers of Congress have passed measures to block Trump’s declaration twice since the president took the step in March, prompting two vetoes. Lawmakers failed to override the second veto Thursday as the GOP-held Senate could not muster the two-thirds majority needed.
The chamber voted by a 53-36 margin to end the emergency. Ten Republicans voted with Democrats in supporting the resolution.
Democrats and some Republicans have accused the president of overreaching and disregarding Congress’ power of the purse by declaring the national emergency. A federal judge ruled Friday that Trump violated the law by using the declaration to divert money to wall construction — though the ruling will not affect a major chunk of the funds he hopes to use for the barrier.
Trump had hoped for $5.7 billion to build the wall, but Congress only appropriated $1.375 billion. The declaration allowed him to divert $3.6 billion to his proposal from the military construction budget, along with money from other administration sources. [CNBC]
All ten of those GOP losers who voted with Democrats and against the America First agenda should be publicly shamed and lose their seats when their elections come up. We must keep close tabs on these “Democrats in Republican Clothing” and purge them from our movement.
Utah is a breeding ground for these RINO’s. Mike Lee and Mitt Romney are among the worst, and do not represent America First. They are sitting in their Senate seats in order to support lobbyists and donors who want cheap labor, not to represent the best interest of the American people.
Time to send those two packing.
