Republicans expect their elected officials to fight the Democrats.
But right now, establishment RINOs are falling all over each other.
And Chuck Schumer got some help from a RINO traitor for this unforgivable double cross.
Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville put a hold on military promotions over Joe Biden illegally forcing taxpayers to pay for the travel of military personnel who seek abortions.
Chuck Schumer could bring up these promotions for a vote one at a time but that would mean using all 30 hours of floor time on debate to break cloture.
Establishment RINOs who really serve the military industrial complex and the Swamp finally reached their breaking point.
Despite the fact that these RINOs all campaigned on being Pro-Life, several of these RINOs took to the Senate floor to berate Tuberville for fighting to uphold both the law and the conservative value of protecting life.
Alaska RINO Dan Sullivan was complaining that Tuberville wouldn’t release his hold to allow swift passage of nominees instead of maintaining the block and forcing Schumer to take the maximum floor time to push through the promotions.
“My colleague from Alabama has said publicly, ‘Hey, bring ’em up one at a time and we’re asking for a voice vote,’” Sullivan ranted. “So, we’re doing what he said. Not sure why he’s objecting. Maybe he can explain that in a minute when I bring up another [nominee].”
Sullivan then fumed that Tuberville was “wrong” to defend unborn life.
“I don’t understand. And look, we can go in and out of readiness, but my colleague from Alabama is 100% wrong,” Sullivan added.
Tuberville said releasing his holds was counterproductive as it was the only leverage the minority had to force negotiations.
“Abortion is the most important thing Democrats have that they will not negotiate,” Tuberville told reporters.
South Carolina RINO Lindsey Graham then complained that Tuberville didn’t file a lawsuit that would take years to work its way through the courts and instead used his position as a Senator to leverage procedure.
“Let me respond to my colleague respectfully,” Graham exclaimed. “We have courts. If you think they’ve done something illegal, go to court. That’s how you handle these things.”
Graham then held up a picture of one of the military members whose promotion was in limbo due to Joe Biden refusing to budge off his position that taxpayers should fund abortion tourism and blamed Tuberville.
“You’ve just denied this lady a promotion,” Graham added. “You did that. All of us are ready to promote her because she deserves to be promoted. She had nothing to do with this policy. Let me say it again. Everybody in this body could find an issue with any administration they don’t agree with. And what we’re going to do is open up a Pandora’s box.”
In an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s show, Tuberville said he thought Republicans were Pro-Life so all he did was fight for the values his fellow Senators all claimed to support.
“I’m all for the military, and we’re in a tough time right now because our military’s struggling to actually put a group together, whether it’s Army, Navy, Air Force,” Tuberville stated. “I don’t work for Sen. McConnell. You know, I like him fine. I work for the people of Alabama and the taxpayers of this country. I thought we’re pro-life. I am.”
