GOP Rep Revolts Out Of Spite
Image credit: sltrib

If you can’t have your way, quit and work for the other team is apparently the message Republican Senator Mike Lee wants to send. 

Lee recently spoke on how he attempted to to introduce a bill that would allow President Trump’s emergency declaration to remain in place, at the cost of limiting the national emergency power of the Executive branch for the rest of the foreseeable future. 

Understandably, Trump didn’t go for the ridiculously bad deal. 

“We tried to cut a deal, the president didn’t appear interested,” Lee shared with The Hill.

It seems this rejection has bruised Lee’s ego as he declares that “I’ll be voting ‘yes,'” on a resolution to end Trump’s national emergency.

  1. Mike Lee was a Republican Conservative Senator who seemed to want to work to further Conservative agenda when he first went to the Senate. He’s learning his lessons in politics quite well–if you don’t get your way, pitch a fit, break ranks with your voting bloc & go to the other side. Sounds like John McCain.

    1. I’ve lost so much respect to the Republicans who have sided with the Dems!!
      We finally have an Honorable President who has the balls to stand up for our freedom, troops, vets, & Our America!! He has fulfilled every promise he campaigned on!! In addition look at the lowest unemployment rate, jobs that have been created & then some!! I honestly think he’s going to do better than President Ronald Reagan did!! We live in a free country with freedom of speech and these bastards are trying to turn our country into a communist one!!
      Read the Holy Bible aka ‘God’s Holy Word!!
      Wake up and help support President Trump get that wall buil to protect our American !! If you cut off the Fake Newa reporting TV stations and watch Fox News just for 5 days you will see the real truth and that you are being lied to on everything!! Fox News tells the honest truth!! It’s going to destroy America if we don’t get the right border wall built!! I’m not against people living in America but they need to do it legally and get a job and work like my family does!! These illegal immigrants crossing our borders illegally are mostly in gangs, bringing drugs into our country and rapists who torture young girls and use them so horribly!! Ask yourselves this question, what if you were able to get here and live legally and it’s your daughter who is being raped over and over again and promised she’s going to get her paperwork and papers to live here legally but it never happens because she’s being continuously tortured and raped by many bad people!!
      Screw Mike Lee, & the rest of you SOBS!!! You are just as 2 faced as Obama, Hillary & Bill!! Y’all are all hiding secret information and you have nothing on President Trump!! Remember he is Our leader, Chief Leader of the United States of America and he doesn’t even get a paycheck that you slimy, sleazy Dems are getting!! You’re getting your fat paychecks when you all should donate your money and get this wall built but you’re too slimy and sleazy and two faced and to make it happen!! Who cares about his income taxes who cares about his financial statements what I care about and what the people in America care about is why wasn’t Hillary prosecuted when she let our prime minister burn to death alive and missed many calls , avoided answering the phone calls of our troops when she was in charge of the secretary of defense under the Obama administration when they’re all a bunch of lying bastards who all need to be prosecuted and need to go to jail !!! Oh and Don’t forget to take Robert Mueller with you too because he ain’t nothing but a snake in the grass as he spends our money to cover up a bunch of stuff that’s called TRUTH !!! It’s so sad to me to see our Congress acting like they are a bunch of high school spoiled teenagers who can’t get their way!!!

  2. It is interesting how people come forward with new ideas when 2 months ago Trump was just asking for $5B and Congress probably have spent more on fighting it and taking care of all the illegals that have crossed the border since December when Congress would even budge! Why do we think Lee’s proposal would pass and we could build a border? What Trump has done is trying to save America and all Congress wants is them to be a hero and come up with something new. That is what negotiation is all about that Trump was trying to do with Nancy P and Chuck S and they wouldn’t budge and then used their embarrassing power to pass a $1.3B border with restrictions on where to do it and restrictions on Border Patrol and anything to show their power and Trump signed it so people could still work and said at the time he would declare a National Security. Personally I would love to get rid of all these power hungry people in congress that is only interested in money for themselves and dictate to the rest of us!!!!

  3. I hope the people that voted for you are looking so they can vote your ass out of office!!you need to back trump and build the wall idiot!!!

  4. Nancy and her wack-pack had rather chew their own toe off than to support the building of the barriers we so desperately need. They keep pushing for the illegals to be allowed to vote, and also same-day voting registration on election days!!!! They hope there will be a continued INVASION pouring through the border bc they know that will lead to even more fraudulent voting!!! The dems are nothing but cheats and con artists, and will do anything to convince the public that Trump is the bad seed!!! He is trying to do what is necessary to SAVE our country, when the only thing they do is try and destroy him!!!! The new sicko AOC threatened the moderate dems that she would put them on a “list” for the activists to be sure and screw them up the next election, if they voted with republicans on the gun background checks. They listened to this crazy bitch!!!!!!! They are ALL bullies and liars, and I pray to GOD that we have enough Americans that see through their bullshit, and help our President and put the “power”(the word they love to use while referring to themselves) back in the right hands!!!

  5. I think the reason they haven’t built the wall already over the last 40 years is that those against it are receiving cartel money. The CIA was already caught importing heroin into Mina Arkansas and other areas. NOTHING happened to them though the whistleblower did get murdered! Pelosis own Dady was suspected of trafficing heroin with his Mafia pals in California. Gavin Newsom, the governor of that lovely shit filled, homelessness, drug infested and illegal sanctuary state is her nephew. Is it any wonder they don’t want the wall and doors closed to those deemed “Undesirable”? Those are exactly who are wanted crossing! I hope El Chapo’s trial testimony gets completely unsealed so “We the people” can know who were named. It is time to start filling GITMO with these traitors to the American people!

  6. AND TO THINK MANY WANTED PRESIDENT TRUMP TO NOMINATE HIM AS A CONSERVATIVE JUSTICE ON THE SUPREME COURT…………..

    JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU…..GOD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS……

    HE OUTED SENATOR LEE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP…..
    HE CAN KISS ANY NOMINATION GOODBYE……WHAT A TRAITOR…….

    RIGHT UP THERE WITH HATCH AND ROMNEY………

    1. Yes, Mike Lee was one of the 13 traitors that went against his party and we won’t soon forget it, you jerk. I pray you get voted out of office. You can’t be counted on…

  7. Very,very, sad state of affairs, this certainly shows that it will take decades to drain the swamp. How much do we spend every year on the illegal immigrants crossing the border? I’d be willing to bet a quite a bit more than $5.7 billion . Maybe Mr. Lee ,Mr. Paul , and Mr. Rubio can all help us out with some legislation for term limits . They being the morally superior constitutionalist , I’m sure that our founders didn’t want people to go to Washington and reside in those positions for 30 years . Drain the swamp .

  8. THESE PEOPLE, AND I USE THE TERM LOOSLEY, ARE NOT THE DEMOCRATS OF THE PAST…..THEY ARE COMMUNIST / MARXISTS OF THE HIGHEST ORDER……BENT ON THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR BELOVED AMERICA AND HER PATRIOTS AND OUR CULTURE AND CREED……
    YES, WE ARE A NATION OF ‘IMMIGRANTS’ BUT WE HAVE ALLOWED OUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY TO BE INVADED BY ‘LITTLE TOKYO’, ‘LITTLE KOREA’, ‘LITTLE ARMENIA’, ‘LITTLE EL SALVADOR’, ‘LITTLE CUBA’, ‘LITTLE GUATAMALA’. LITTLE TURKEY’, ‘LITTLE ARABIA’ AND ALL THE MUSLIMES, MS-13 TERRORISTS AND GOD ONLY KNOWS HOW MANY MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS FROM MEXICO TO INFILTRATE OUR LAND WITH THE SOLE INTENT TO OVERWHELM AND OVERTAKE US……..THEY BRING THE ‘CANCERS’ OF THEIR THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES WITH THEM AND SOON IT’S NO DIFFERENT FROM WHENCE THEY CAME ……
    AND THIS ISN’T COUNTING ALL THE COMMUNIST / MARXISTS AND RINOS SITTING IN OUR CONGRESS AND GOVERNMENT POSITIONS……IT’S MIND BOGLEING THAT WE ARE STILL STANDING AS A NATION WITH OUR CONSTITUTION AND LAWS……

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP…..
    GOD BLESS OUR BELOVED AMERICA AND HER TROOPS….KEEP THEM SAFE…….
    WE NEED GOD AND PRESIDENT TRUMP MORE THAN EVER NOW…….

  9. If I lived in Texas my ass would be getting my guns and my 4 wheeler and get my buddies and patrol the border. This makes me sick. Remember who voted against it and vote them out. Start looking for replacements people! Because that’s the only way we can get rid of these hateful Rhinos. Send them a message folks. Build the damn wall.

  10. Really surprised – and VERY disappointed! – at this recent action by Sen. Lee!! Actually, it was quite a surprising turn of events, but if he was wedded to this plan to hobble the Commander-in-Chief over a critical issue (American security!), then he can kiss a LOT of his conservative base goodbye!!
