Why RINO Senators Voted against President Trump

by Oren Long, ©2019, blogging at WethePeopleUSA

My US Senator Jerry Moran (R-Ks), along with eleven other RINOs, voted “yes”, in agreement with Democrats, to support the House Resolution seeking to stop President Trump from declaring a State of National Emergency on America’s southern border and divert Executive Branch funding to secure the border by building a wall or other barrier to stop the invasion of illegals, including drug traffickers, human smugglers, sex-trade smugglers, gang members, criminals, possible terrorists, and others, currently approaching 100,000 illegal entries PER MONTH!

This is an INVASION, plain and simple, and everyone but the Democrats and RINOs knows it! It CLEARLY requires drastic action. Yet, “Fortress Washington” sits on its collective hands and bemoans ANYTHING President Trump tries, filing lawsuits and passing a Congressional Resolution while ignoring the elephant in the room — THE ONGOING INVASION!

Webster’s (copyright 1943) defines “Invader” as, “One who invades; an assailant; intruder.” it defines “invade” as, “To enter (a country) with a hostile army; infringe upon; violate”. It further defines “Invasion” as, “The act of invading; hostile incursion; encroachment”.

Before the vote I, along with many other Kansans, called Senator Moran’s office in D.C. and urged him to vote in support of the President. He ignored us, instead voting with Nancy Pelosi and the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

I subsequently received a mass email from Senator Moran trying to justify his vote. in it, he waxed eloquent on his support for the President and the need to secure the border before pivoting and excusing his vote by claiming he was “defending the Constitution” from Executive Overreach. I think NOT!

Since 1970, there have been 40 or 50 declarations of National Emergency on all manner of subjects, foreign and domestic. Yet, in the history of National Emergencies, there has NEVER been ONE Congressional Resolution condemning ANY of them, EVER! And, NONE of those supposed “Emergencies” have even, remotely approached the level of crisis we face on our southern border, a crisis so severe that even Democrats now call it a crisis!

More likely, Senator Moran and his fellow RINOs are defending “Fortress Washington”, the Chamber of Commerce, their big donors, and the Swamp from a man the People sent to drain it.

Senator Moran claims to know and love the Constitution, yet ignores Article IV, Section Four which states, “The United States SHALL (my emphasis)…protect each of them (the States) against invasion…”.

Further, there is 10 USC 284, federal law that empowers the President to use the military in just this [invasion] scenario AND allows the military to erect walls, fences, and/or other barriers necessary to complete its mission. U.S. Representative Mo Brooks is very familiar with this law, has advocated for its implementation for months, and can brief the President on its content and legality. Yet, this information is apparently being kept from the President, intentionally or otherwise.

Use of Article IV, Section Four and 10 USC 284 would instantly take both Congress and the courts out of the fray.

Despite Senator Moran’s insistence that he is a staunch defender of the Constitution, I do NOT see him advocating for Article IV, Section Four and/or 10 USC 284 OR making an appointment with the President to brief him on their use. IF (and it’s a huge “if”) Senator Moran actually does agree with the President on the urgent need to secure the border, why does he NOT, PERSONALLY, make the effort to advise the President of his legal and Constitutional options?

President Trump is apparently the ONLY one in Washington who recognizes that we are being invaded. These are not “migrants”, “immigrants”, “asylum seekers”, or “refugees”. They are invaders. If they truly are migrants, immigrants, asylum seekers, or refugees, they can go to any official Port of Entry, file their claim, and await adjudication — IN MEXICO as ordered by the President. But, when they illegally sneak across the border, at illegal points and in mass numbers they become invaders and nothing else.

Why is it important to call them “Invaders”? Words have meaning! Calling them “invaders” automatically activates Article IV, Section Four and the use of 10 USC 284, allowing the President, as Commander in Chief of the armed forces, to send the military to the border, REPELLING the invaders. THAT IS IMPORTANT! “Invaders” are not given attorneys, court dates, housing, welfare, Social Security, healthcare, or anything else. they are just REPELLED, PERIOD!

The President is not a Constitutional Scholar; he is a businessman. He relies on his supposedly “learned” advisors to tell him of his legal and Constitutional options, something they are not doing, again, intentionally or otherwise. If the President was told of Article IV, Section Four and 10 USC 284, the wall could be built in short order, the invasion would stop, and the border would FINALLY be secured.
