I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
That is the oath of office a United States Senator takes at the beginning of every term. How many United States Senators could say they are upholding that oath today?
Steve Daines visits Russia on the 4th of July.
I can name one senator that definitely isn’t upholding his oath: Steve Daines. This little rat-fink of a corrupt crony corporate congressman upjumped to the Senate is failing America and he’s failing Montanans who demand allegiance to the Constitution, American citizens and the flag before political party. Daines is not a leader, he’s not representative of anyone and he won’t even meet with his own constituents, but he will meet with the Russians. He has not stood up for Americans, he is doing Trump and Putin’s bidding.
This is what a real senator sounds like:
“The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake,” McCain said in a statement. “No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant.”
Always remember the names of the GOP Congressmen who chose to spend OUR Independence Day in Russia groveling at Putin’s heels:

Matt Rosendale is already a bootlicker extraordinaire willing to lay down to Putin alongside Trump and Bannon. All you have to do is look to Breitbart which pumps out the most noxious screed of propaganda (agitprop) that Vladimir Putin spell checks before it goes out.
We all need to ensure that Matt Rosendale never takes this oath that he will not uphold, let’s not give him the chance. We must defeat him in November.

Let us not forget the ever gleefully complicit Greg Gianforte willing to make a buck on anyone’s back:
This all follows and was inspired by what Josh Manning stated last night:
That is all I have got… a headline, a picture, and one of the most illuminative and revealing and disastrous press conferences in history. The fears and backstories so many of us have warned about for over two years seem to have finally set in. There have been many points like this, which have turned into utter disappointments but this moment feels like the one where people finally saw the tip of the iceberg. That disaster looms deep and real and many parts of our vessel are about to run aground of it.
But there is a famous naval battle cry: “Don’t Give Up the Ship!” That ship is our democracy and while Daines, Rosendale, Gianforte, and the Montana GOP have given up the ship for electoral gains, this our chance to hang on and save what remains.
You are angry, you are sad, you are suddenly seeing the immense task before us. Do not worry, do not run away. You have people surrounding you with buckets and life preservers. We will get through this. Do not give up this country. This is our moment.
