The Revolt of the Senators, By Charles Taylor (Florida)

Ten US Republican Senators have announced that they will be suspending all cooperation with the Democrats over the lawfare that the Democrats have unleashed upon America, most notably that with the recent decision to convict President Trump of a felony. Some of their individual statements are below, but a particularly punchy one was made by Marjorie Taylor Greene: "Republicans have done NOTHING to stop the Democrats from destroying our justice system and our freedoms. Many Republicans would just quote the Constitution as they are marched to the firing squad. When good men do nothing, evil prevails."

This is interesting, and highly significant, as it is the beginnings of the breakdown of the US parliamentary system, on the road to secession, the breakup of America, and the fall of empire. If there was a hung Senate, it would bring legislative chaos to the country, showing that the rule of law has been severely compromised by lawfare. Once more, a lesson for the rest of the West.

"Now, ten Republican senators announced on Friday that they are suspending all cooperative legislative efforts with Democrats, accusing the White House of engaging in actions that are "un-American" and making a "mockery" of the rule of law.

On Thursday, several Republican figures released strongly worded statements expressing their outrage and support for Trump following his guilty verdict.

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene lambasted her colleagues for their inaction against the Democrats.

She wrote, "Republicans have done NOTHING to stop the Democrats from destroying our justice system and our freedoms. Many Republicans would just quote the Constitution as they are marched to the firing squad. When good men do nothing, evil prevails."

On Friday, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) echoed Greene's sentiments, emphasizing the need for more than just verbal condemnation.

"Strongly worded statements are not enough," Lee asserted on Friday. "Those who turned our judicial system into a political cudgel must be held accountable. We are no longer cooperating with any Democrat legislative priorities or nominations, and we invite all concerned Senators to join our stand."

The defiant stance was formalized in a letter initially signed by eight Senators, including Mike Lee (R-UT), Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Roger Marshall (R-KS), JD Vance (R-OH), Eric Schmitt (R-MO), Rick Scott (R-FL), and Marco Rubio (R-FL).

The letter lambasts the Biden administration for its profound disregard for American principles and the politicization of justice.

The senators have vowed to block any non-security related funding increases for the administration, oppose all political and judicial appointments, and refuse expedited consideration of Democrat-led legislation unless it directly pertains to national security.

The letter reads:

"The White House has made a mockery of the rule of law and fundamentally altered our politics in un-American ways. As a Senate Republican conference, we are unwilling to aid and abet this White House in its project to tear this country apart.

To that end, we will not 1) allow any increase to non-security related funding for this administration, or any appropriations bill which funds partisan lawfare; 2) vote to confirm this administration's political and judicial appointees; and 3) allow expedited consideration and passage of Democrat legislation or authorities that are not directly relevant to the safety of the American people."

In a statement, Sen. Rubio wrote, "Statements of outrage are no longer enough So I hope every Republican Senator who is sickened by what the deranged left is doing to our country will join us in taking action in the Senate."

Sen. Schmitt wrote, "Democrats have destroyed the integrity of our justice system and made a mockery of the Constitution – all in the name of maintaining political power. My colleagues and I aren't going to go along with the status quo. Enough is enough."

Sen. Marshall wrote, "Joe Biden and his army of partisan hack judges have weaponized our judicial system against his political opponent. Words are not enough. Call on your Senator to join our fight – We will block every single Biden judicial nomination until America votes on November 5th."

Sen. Blackburn wrote, "The White House's weaponization of our government to target President Trump for political gain represents the pinnacle of two tiers of justice. We cannot allow this grave injustice to prevail in the United States of America. My Republican colleagues & I are taking a stand."

Sen. Scott wrote, "100% agree. Our country is in real trouble. Republicans must stand together and end this madness."
