Many Republicans profess to support Donald Trump while working behind closed doors to end his Presidency.
The President had no idea how deep the betrayal ran.
And now RINO Senators meet behind closed doors about this military plot that Trump won’t like.
Democrats are seizing on the Black Lives Matter protests popping up across the country to advance their effort to fundamentally transform America into a socialist nation.
A key component of this plan of attack is destroying the United States military.
The Senate Armed Services Committee debated the National Defense Authorization Act before it headed to the floor for final passage.
In a closed door panel and with no recorded vote, the GOP-led committee adopted Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s amendment to strip the names of Confederate generals off military bases.
CBS News reported that, “A source familiar with the proceedings confirmed to CBS News that the GOP-led panel on Wednesday approved the amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) offered by Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts via voice vote. According to a summary of the NDAA released by the committee Thursday, the measure requires the Defense Department to rename posts and assets — streets, aircraft, ships, and other equipment — either named for Confederate officers or that honor the confederacy within three years.”
Warren celebrated her amendment on social media, writing, “As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I filed an amendment to the annual defense bill last week to rename all bases named for Confederate generals. It’s long past time to end the tribute to white supremacy on our military installations.”
But the Warren amendment was even more extreme than first reported.
The amendment included language that called for the destruction and desecration of Confederate graves of soldiers that fought for the South in the Civil War.
This vote took place just days after President Trump said any provision renaming military bases was a nonstarter for him.
“It has been suggested that we should rename as many as 10 of our Legendary Military Bases, such as Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas, Fort Benning in Georgia, etc.,” the President wrote on Twitter.
“These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom. The United States of America trained and deployed our HEROES on these Hallowed Grounds, and won two World Wars. Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations Our history as the Greatest Nation in the World will not be tampered with. Respect our Military!” President Trump added.
The committee adopted the amendment by voice vote which allowed cowardly GOP senators to vote against President Trump without having to go on the record in a roll call vote.
Some Republicans may have felt comfortable defying President Trump because they see polls that show Joe Biden leading the President and figure the election is over.
But President Trump also trailed Hillary Clinton at this time in 2016 and found a way to claw his way back into the race and emerge victorious.
