ICYMI: Tuberville Joins “National Report” on Newsmax

WASHINGTON  Today,U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) joined “National Report” on Newsmax to discuss his pledge to fight back against the Biden administration’s weaponization of the judicial system and President Biden’s mass amnesty Executive Order.

Excerpts from Senator Tuberville’s remarks can be found below, and his full interview can be viewed on YouTube or Rumble.  

TUBERVILLE: “The American people need to wake up. This is a war—this is a war on our constitutional rights and our constitutional republic. This is not as much about Donald Trump as it is about the people in this country. I don’t call us Republicans or Democrats anymore; you’re either for our great country, the way it’s been for the last 248 years, or you’re anti-, you want to change it to how you want it to be. So, basically at the end of the day, these Democrats are trying to, they’re taking away our rights, our health care rights, our gun rights, and our privacy rights. They want to censor everything that we do, they want to take away your money, and they want to take away your voting rights. Folks, this isn’t going to stop. So, we’re trying to get something over—even our Republican colleagues [are saying] ‘This can’t go any longer. We have to stop this train from going down this track.’ If we don’t, we will lose in November this upcoming year. This is not over; the Democrats are not finished with this. They will continue to pound this every day, and they’re going to try and push us off the cliff, this country that we grew up in and that we very well know.”

KRAISMAN: “We will stay on this topic, but I did want to get your thoughts on this announcement. At 2PM Eastern Time, the president will appear for this press conference, if you will, and many are speculating, sources inside the White House say that this is about the border and halting the request for asylum seekers at a certain point—some say 2,500—from crossing the border, a limit at 2,500. Others are reporting it’s up to 4,000 from crossing the border. The bottom line is—it’s an executive order, a potential one. We don’t know the number, but it would limit those crossing the border seeking asylum. Again, that would potentially happen at 2PM. Talk to us about that. Does that give you any type of enthusiasm about this administration to do something about the border when you’ve seen what happened in the past three and a half years already?”

TUBERVILLE: “Well, as you just said, they haven’t recognized or admitted to this problem for going on four years. It’s been a catastrophe. It’s one of the worst things that’s ever happened to this country. We have people here that don’t love this country, they don’t want to love this country, and they want to change it to something else. They want to make it look like they are doing something, but they haven’t done a dang thing since I’ve been here to help the people, the taxpayers, or the citizens of this country. They’ve done more to help people from other countries once they come here, so it’s costing us about $500 billion a year. This administration couldn’t care less about the country that we live in. They want to change it to something they can control and [have] power for generations to come. It’s all about voting at the end of the day, but what a joke. This is a press conference to cut down on people coming across the border—[…] who’s going to go down there and count by the way? We have border patrol people getting out right and left because they have been overworked, underpaid, and they don’t believe in the Biden administration’s rules anyway.

RECHENBERG: “Well, it does make you wonder. There’s obviously follow up questions: How are you counting this specific number? Does that go across the entire southern border? Are you communicating with different states daily about the number of crossings? It seems there are plenty of issues with this proposed plan. Before we let you go, Senator, I’ve got to ask you about this reported plan by folks within the Biden campaign team that they’re going to keep using the phrase ‘convicted felon’ when speaking about Donald Trump and try to incorporate it into fundraising efforts or any time President Biden mentions Donald Trump here. Do you think that’s an effective strategy for those independent voters? Do you think they might be turned away from Donald Trump following the New York guilty verdict?”

TUBERVILLE: “I hope they keep pushing that narrative. I think it’s a winning strategy, not for the Democrats, but for Americans. Because, as I said earlier, this about America. This is not about Democrats or Republicans. American people have woken up to this ideology that they’re pushing. This was not a fair trial; I went up there with President Trump one day and what a joke that was. This judge was absolutely after President Trump. It’s been a set-up all along. He’ll probably put him in some kind of house arrest in July, some kind of nonsense. But we have so many bad things going on in this country right now. They are worried about Republicans taking back over the country that we love, and they better be worried about it because we will take it back November 5th if they continue down this road of nonsense.”
