“The Worst Republican Senator May Be John Cornyn”

Fourteen Republicans voted to restrict your Second Amendment rights this week.

[Please see the list of the 14 Republicans at the bottom of this page.]

The bill they support would encourage states to adopt Orwellian red flag laws and make it harder for law-abiding citizens to purchase firearms. 

The lead Republican advocate of the bill was John Cornyn, the Texas Senator who could succeed Mitch McConnell as the next leader of the GOP caucus. This is not the first time Cornyn, a former Majority Whip, has betrayed Middle America to please the Swamp…

…He defends the grants to states to expand red flag laws as just good common sense. “The goal is to keep guns out of the hands of people with criminal backgrounds and people with mental health problems,” he told Fox News

I’m sure we can all trust liberal bureaucrats to only take guns from people who pose actual risks…it would make it much easier for the government to take guns away from political dissidents [i.e., conservative patriots]. That’s who liberal bureaucrats see as the real threat — not actual criminals.

Cornyn isn’t content to just promote gun control. He also wants Republicans to make a deal on amnesty.

In April, he began negotiations with Democrats to work out a compromise on immigration reform…Powerful GOP donors issued a letter to Republican leaders urging them to legalize illegal aliens to address “labor shortages” and counter inflation. Yes, some establishment bigwigs still think more cheap foreign labor is the solution to all of America’s problems.

…After the Senate passed Cornyn’s gun control bill, he said it’s now time to take up immigration. Democratic senators agreed with his suggestion.

For years, the Texas senator has wanted to achieve “immigration reform.”

When Joe Biden became president, Cornyn relished the idea of reaching across the aisle to sell out his constituents. He claimed that not passing immigration reform was one of his “biggest disappointments” and looked forward to correcting that error.

Last year, he proposed a bill that would legalize most illegal aliens who came to the U.S. as minors (the so-called Dreamers). The bill was rejected by Democrats for not legalizing enough illegals, but that failure hasn’t deterred Cornyn.

Cornyn advocated for welcoming as many unvetted Afghan migrants as possible after the fall of Kabul.

He also consistently supports increasing the number of foreign guest workers in the country.

Senator Cornyn also led the effort to make Juneteenth a federal holiday. Now, liberals openly proclaim it as a day to condemn America as a white supremacist country and demand reparations.

Cornyn thought it was a great idea to put this event on the calendar. “The passage of this bill represents a big step in our nation’s journey toward equality,” he extolled. He derided Republican critics of the bill as “kooky.”

The senator promoted criminal justice reform to achieve “racial equality.” It’s instead lead to a skyrocketing murder rate and lawless cities.

Cornyn also thinks we should retire symbols of the Confederacy because they look “backward.”

He’s no fan of Donald Trump.

A few weeks before the 2020 election, he described the party’s relationship with the then-president as a failed marriage. “Maybe like a lot of women who get married and think they’re going to change their spouse, and that doesn’t usually work out very well,” he told a reporter.

He identified President Trump’s use of Pentagon funds to help construct a border wall as one of the critical differences between himself and the 45th president…

But Cornyn does think we should use taxpayer dollars to defend other countriesHe championed the $40 billion we delivered to Ukraine.

He even visited Ukraine last month to take pictures with Volodymyr Zelensky.

He insists that America should open its wallet to Ukraine and continue to do so until the former Soviet state defeats Russia. That’s an invitation to give billions more to a faraway land. 

Cornyn isn’t America First at all. He puts illegal aliens, Ukraine, and Juneteenth above the national interest.

For him, $40 billion for Ukraine is essential, but diverting defense funds to a border wall is distasteful.

He embodies the corrupt, out-of-touch establishment Donald Trump defeated in 2016…

This is no time to compromise America’s future or to sell out Middle America in some idiotic quest for media approval.

We need GOP leaders who put America first. Period.

Cornyn fails this simple test…

Other GOP senators may have worse records than Cornyn, but none of them have the Texan’s influence. That’s what makes him the worst Republican senator. What he proposes matters — and he wants to end the party’s America First drift and put it squarely back in the Swamp’s grasp.
