The last two years of fighting between President Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is all about to come down to this.
With just over 100 days until the Presidential Election both sides are scraping for any advantage they can find.
Now Donald Trump threw down an ultimatum to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer that turned 2020 upside down.
Congress is set to pass the National Defense Authorization Act which will fund the military for the coming year.
In a sneaky closed door move, the Senate Armed Services Committee approved by voice vote – so there was no recorded roll call vote – of an amendment proposed by Elizabeth Warren to rename bases named after Confederate officers and to desecrate military graves because they bore symbols of the Confederacy.
President Trump sent word that he would veto this legislation over the Democrats’ attempts to erase American history.
But no one believed a President would veto a defense spending bill in an election year.
However the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released a statement outlining President Trump’s intentions to veto the bill and his reasons why.
“Over the years, these locations have taken on significance to the American story and those who have helped write it that far transcends their namesakes. The Administration respects the legacy of the millions of American servicemen and women who have served with honor at these military bases, and who from these locations have fought and died in two World Wars, Vietnam, the War on Terror, and other conflicts,” the OMB statement began.
The OMB also cited the fact that President Trump was drawing a line in the sand because as the Black Lives Matter rioters showed in targeting statues from the Founding Fathers, the purge of American history would not stop with the Confederacy.
“Further, the drive to rename will not stop at the limits written into section 2829. Section 2829 is part of a sustained effort to erase from the history of the Nation those who do not meet an ever-shifting standard of conduct,” the OMB added.
“Beyond section 2829, loud voices in America are also demanding the destruction or renaming of monuments and memorials to former Presidents, including the our first President, George Washington; the author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson; and the Great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln. President Trump has been clear in his opposition to politically motivated attempts like this to rewrite history and to displace the enduring legacy of the American Revolution with a new left-wing cultural revolution,” the OMB concluded.
Multiple public polls also show the President has the majority of Americans on his side in the fight to preserve the nation’s history – good, bad and ugly – and not erase it because woke mobs protested.
An ABC/Ipsos poll found 56 percent of Americans opposed renaming military bases.
A Morning Consult poll showed 48 percent of Americans favored keeping the names of Confederate military officers on bases while just 33 percent opposed the move.
This fight is important to prevent Marxist cultural revolutionaries from deleting American history because it’s politically popular.
