GOP-Controlled Senate Just Voted Against Trump, & SEVEN Republicans Sided With Dems

Here we go again…

Once again, a handful of Republicans have decided to work against President Trump.

Barack Obama never had this problem.

Despite terrible policy for eight solid years, at least liberals were unified.

From The Hill:

The Senate voted to block President Trump’s Saudi arms deal on Thursday, paving the way for a veto clash with the White House.

The Senate voted 53-45 on resolutions to block two of the sales, with GOP Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Mike Lee (Utah), Jerry Moran (Kansas), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Rand Paul (Ky.) and Todd Young (Ind.) joining Democrats.

President Trump is constantly fighting with members of his own party to get things done.

Here’s another example, per The Hill:

Senate Republicans are warning that Ken Cuccinelli, who was tapped Monday to serve as the acting head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), will not be confirmed by the GOP-controlled Senate.

Cuccinelli started his job atop the immigration agency Monday, a controversial move that came even after top Senate Republicans publicly warned that the former Senate Conservatives Fund leader would face a rocky reception on Capitol Hill.

If she’s trying to stay relevant, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is doing a great job.

She has big plans for her future.

They might include going after the Senate seats of Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

Here’s the report, from Breitbart:

High-level Democrats said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may primary Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) or Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), according to a report.

Top Democrats reportedly told Axios that they expect the progressive and freshman Rep. Ocasio-Cortez to primary Sen. Schumer in 2022 or Sen. Gillibrand in 2024. Gillibrand continues to campaign for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination, despite her low polling numbers across the country.

Ocasio-Cortez has made national fame for her primary victory against former Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), who was expected to one day hold a high-ranking House leadership position such as House speaker or House majority leader.

US Air Force Reveals Successful Hypersonic Missile Test

This could put the US back in the driver’s seat as far as missile tech goes.

Much like the global arms races that came before, the superpowers of the world are now looking to add a terrifying new doomsday machine to their arsenals in 2022:  Hypersonic missiles.

The missiles, which could be loaded with nuclear or traditional munitions, fly several times faster than the speed of sound and are said to be unstoppable by current defense technologies.  (The US has played coy with this claim, however, suggesting that our nation is well-defended against them).

Russia and China already possess such weapons.  North Korea keeps insisting that they do too, but the claim is dubious.

The United States, who previously admitted that they were a bit behind in developing these projectiles, made a major announcement on the subject this week.

UPI reports a B-52H Stratofortress aircraft successfully released a AGM-1831 Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) over the weekend that achieved speeds five times greater than the speed of sound.

The test was conducted somewhere off the coast of Southern California, it said.

“This was a major accomplishment by the ARRW team for the weapons enterprise and our Air Force,” Brig. Gen. Heath Collins, Air Force program executive officer for weapons, said in a statement.

“The team’s tenacity, expertise and commitment were key in overcoming the past year’s challenges to get us to the recent success.”

The news comes just months after China secretly test launched a hypersonic missile that circumnavigated the globe before hitting its target.
