The “RINOs” Who Voted to Destroy the Constitution

By now everyone has heard that Loretta Lynch was confirmed as the new Attorney General to replace Eric Holder by the Senate. But, this nomination would never even have gotten a vote if it wasn’t for the Republican leadership in the Senate. 
It’s not that they didn’t know the radical agenda likely to come from the new Attorney General as CNS News reports:
A Republican-controlled U.S. Senate voted to confirm an attorney general today who says that illegal aliens have a right to work in the United States but that partially born babies do not have a right to life.

The Senate took two votes on the nomination of Loretta Lynch: first, a “cloture” vote to end debate and allow a final vote on confirmation, and, then, the final vote itself.
Neither of these votes would have taken place had not Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brought her nomination to the floor for consideration.
So much for all of the campaign promises made by the “RINO” (Republicans In Name Only) candidates last fall.  They were elected to stop the radical Obama agenda, but it now appears they are in lock step with it.
It’s not like McConnell had no options as CNS News explains:
Thanks to a change in the interpretation of Senate Rule XXII that the Democratic leadership pushed through in 2013, only 50 votes (as opposed the historical 60) was needed to invoke cloture and end debate on the nomination.
In fact, 66 senators voted for cloture–including 20 Republicans.
It was Harry Reid, as then Senate Majority Leader, who changed the rules to get Obama’s nominees through confirmation without Republican interference.  But, McConnell has refused to put the 60 vote cloture requirement back into place. 
However, even with needing just 50 votes to force the vote, the Republicans still have the numbers to prevent votes if they all stand firm in opposition.  This didn’t happen as CNS News shares:
Lynch, who has been serving as U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of New York, then won confirmation as attorney general of the United States by a vote of 56 to 43. Ten Senate Republicans voted to confirm her.

And who were these 10 “RINO” Republican Senators who voted to help Obama and Lynch further destroy the Constitution?  CNS News names names:

In the 56 to 43 confirmation vote, 10 Republicans voted for Lynch.
They included: Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, Susan Collins of Maine, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Orrin Hatch of Utah, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, and Rob Portman of Ohio.

Of these 10, 4 are up for re-election in 2016 – Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, and Rob Portman of Ohio.  Voters in these states would do well to remember this vote come the spring primaries next year.
Now that Lynch has been confirmed, we can well expect her to be just as political, if not more so, than Eric Holder was.  He was Obama’s “consigliere”, enforcing his polices regardless of Constitutional law.
Lynch has already testified that illegal immigrants have just as much right to work in the U.S. as do citizens.  She certainly will defend Obama’s illegal immigration push even though the Constitution clearly gives the Congress the authority to control immigration laws, not the President – Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4:
“The Congress shall have Power . . . To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization.”
Yet, as CNS News tells it, she has taken a position in opposition to current law:
At a confirmation hearing in January, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R.-Ala.) asked Lynch: “Who has more right to a job in this country? A lawful immigrant who’s here, a green-card holder, or a citizen, or a person who entered this country unlawfully?”
“Well, Senator,” said Lynch, “I believe that the right and the obligation to work is one that’s shared by everyone in this country regardless of how they came here. And certainly, if someone’s here, regardless of status, I would prefer that they be participating in the workplace than not participating in the workplace.”
Under the laws of the United States, which as attorney general Lynch will be responsible for enforcing, foreign nationals illegally present in the United States are not permitted to work here.

In addition, Lynch has proven by her actions that she opposed current federal law banning “partial-birth” abortion – a gruesome late-term abortion procedure accepted by only the most radical pro-aborts.  CNS News re-tells the circumstances:

In 2006, Lynch joined with a group of fellow former U.S. attorneys in signing an amicus brief submitted to the Supreme Court in the case of Gonzales v. Carhart, which sought to overturn the law that Congress enacted in 2003 that bans partial-birth abortion in the United States.
Arguing that the ban should be overturned–and partial-birth abortions permitted–Lynch and her fellow former U.S. attorneys said that the language of the law, including the term “living fetus,” was too vague to be properly understood by those responsible for obeying it and enforcing it.

  1. Rand Paul took a lot of flak for opposing her. I hope Republican voters are taking notice.

  2. Mitch "Turtleboy" McConnell rubbed it right in your Republican faces on Election Day: "We'll strive for bipartisanship."

    Sure, that's why Republicans elected you, Turtleboy! So you'd ally with the Democrats!

    Like I keep telling everyone: if you vote for a Democrat or Republican? I consider you a TRAITOR to our constitution, and too damn lazy to research the dozen other choices available.

    "I don't wanna waste my vote......waaah....waaaah..." No, you expect "instant gratification" or you think something NEW and ORIGINAL, like sticking to our constitution has "failed" if change hasn't occured in 30 damn seconds.

    There IS NO "Left and Right" it is all "Divide and Conquer"...old as the hills.

    Wake up and quit yer bitchin'. Turtleboy TOLD YOU and YOU STILL VOTED IN DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS....F@cking fools.
