Backstabbing Mitch McConnell And Senate Republicans Crush Trump, Vote With Democrats To Pass NDAA

OPINION | Senate Republicans showed their coward side as they have passed the National Defense Authorization Act by a vote of 86 – 14 with only four Republicans dissenting.

President Donald Trump had threatened to veto the bill, championed by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, because it will change the names of military bases named for Confederate soldiers, Politico reported.

The Senate overwhelmingly passed its $741 billion defense policy legislation on Thursday, with the Republican-led body defying a threat from President Donald Trump to veto legislation that would force the removal of Confederate names from Army bases.

Senators approved the National Defense Authorization Act in a 86-14 blowout. Both the House and Senate have passed bills this week with majorities large enough to overcome a veto from Trump.

Senate and House Armed Services Committee leaders will soon begin negotiations to hammer out the differences in their competing bills.

The measure would kick off a process forcing the Pentagon to scrub names, monuments and paraphernalia honoring the Confederacy and its leaders from military bases and assets over the next three years. The House defense bill passed Tuesday, would force the renaming of bases within a year.

The effort, sponsored by former presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), comes amid protests over systemic racism and policy brutality across the country. Ten Army bases are named for Confederate military leaders.

This came after the president spoke against the bill and threatened to veto it, but Thursday’s vote is veto proof.

“I will Veto the Defense Authorization Bill if the Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren (of all people!) Amendment, which will lead to the renaming (plus other bad things!) of Fort Bragg, Fort Robert E. Lee, and many other Military Bases from which we won Two World Wars, is in the Bill!” he said.

Surprisingly more Democrats voted against the NDAA than Republicans did in the final tally which was voted for by Senate Majority Leader and Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell.

Democrat Sen. Tim Kaine, the former running mate of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, defended the legislation.

“Do you really expect us to believe that a society that continues to honor those who tried to destroy our country to save slavery will be serious about ending the racial disparities that exist today?” he said.

Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe said that he supported the legislation on Wednesday for the way it will strengthen the military.

“The way we win against our adversaries is by making sure fights never start by sending a strong message that you can’t win. Don’t even try,” he said. “That’s what were doing in this bill.”

    I grew up in spring lake and I think it’s a disgrace the piece of crap Elizabeth and every republican that sided with her to rename the military installations. You republicans are a disgrace. My dad was special forces and served in the wars . I was a proud dependent to have grown up on Fort Bragg. Shame on you butt kissers. I hope they list every one of you scum bags that support this stupidity. Quit cowering down to these low life thugs and corrupted democrats that chose to destroy our country.

    Republicans are very disappointing. They knew the President did not want to change the names of the Bases, and they didn’t give a shit. I’m sick of them being cowards and not standing with the President.

    You can’t erase history. It’s happened. And how are future generations to learn anything from the past, if it’s lessons (good and bad) are removed from the history books.
    It was a very different time in history, the keeping of slaves. It’s not happening in civilised Western countries now. It is still happening in Asia and Middle East. Where is the outrage against that? DO NOT CHANGE THE NAMES OF YOUR MILITARY BASES, IT IS DEMEANING TO EVERY PERSON WHO IS SERVING OR HAS SERVED IN YOUR MILITARY.

    I believed the Republican Party is weak. They should have listen to the people and not change the names of our bases. President Trump needs strong individuals beside him not stabbing him in the back!!!

    As the wheat is being separated from the chaff, the priority has been wasting time and money to create a divide where people are afraid to talk to their neighbors. Communism is here when governors try their hand at being lawmakers in opposition to the US Constitution (Indiana for one)

    Are we kidding here? They are supposed to be representatives of the people yet it continually seems that they are nothing more than representatives of themselves and what they can get from the people. IMPEACH THEM ALL that voted for this thing.

    It’s Wrong To Change The Names. Those Generals Were Fighting For Our Country Not For Slavery. They Thought In Every Way They Were Right. Same Way Martin Luther King Was Right. Then You Want To Put Up A Monument To A Criminal Killed By A Bad Cop. I Am Sick Of The Way Our Congress And Senate Are Being Run By Their Boss Soros

    we are letting 535 corrupt people do as they wish not what they were elected to do. If we can’t get the backing for an Article 5 convention then we will have to stand up to these asses

    I have been on this earth for 58 years and i have seen this country go from a God fearing country to for the most part evil country, it’s all because the Democrats have chipped away at our family values that covers everything from telling our very young children that if you don’t want to be a boy thats ok we will make you into a girl exc,exc. Makes me want to puke!
