Huntsville, Ala – Today, the Mo Brooks for U.S. Senate team hit back against yet another Katie Britt Team (herein “Britt”) dishonest attack ad. Thinking Alabama citizens will not fall for Britt’s dishonest attack ads.
Britt’s attack ad states:
The Afghan disaster. Our enemies emboldened. But even before that debacle, Mo Brooks voted to make us weaker. Repeatedly voting against bills funding our military. Mo Brooks voted with Nancy Pelosi, and against every Alabama Republican, to cut off funding to fight ISIS. He even voted to cut off funding to fight the Taliban. Mo Brooks, voting with the Democrats, and against America’s military.
The truth versus Britt:
1. Mo Brooks’ Election Record. Congressman Mo Brooks has been elected 14 times in a part of Alabama that has 40,000+ defense jobs: uniformed military personnel, Department of Defense civilian workers, and defense contractors and workers. Think about it. There is no chance Mo Brooks would have ever been elected if any of Britt’s claims were truthful.
2. Mo Brooks Voted Against Barack Obama Sending America’s Military Personnel into Harms’ Way Without Prior Congressional Approval.
Obama sent America’s military into Syria and Iraq without Congressional approval. Obama should have sought prior approval (under the War Powers Act or U.S. Constitution) before once again sending our military personnel into harms’ way without Congressional support. Mo Brooks voted accordingly.
3. Mo Brooks Voted Against America Being the “Cop on Every Corner of the World”.
Mo Brooks disagrees with those who say America should be the police cop on every corner of the planet and must fight every war everywhere, with little or no support from the rest of the free world.
Mo Brooks’ position is that, if it is a fight worth fighting, then the rest of the world should pony up in a significant way. America should not always be the only free world nation that is primarily responsible for spending its treasury and risking its citizens’ lives without substantial support from the rest of the free world.
4. Mo Brooks Opposes Never-Ending Wars.
Mo Brooks, like President Trump, opposes Never-Ending Wars – particularly in places around the globe (like Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, etc.) where the people we fight to protect do not appreciate our sacrifices and, after everything is said and done, still hate Americans and America.
As such, Mo Brooks consistently urged America to leave Afghanistan after our military victory was achieved (culminating with the killing of Usama Bin Laden in 2011). America’s military kills enemies, not nation-state building.
Britt & Durant BOTH attack Mo Brooks for voting against Pelosi’s National Defense Authorization Act. Really?
Both Katie Britt and Mike Durant also attack Mo Brooks as “anti-military”, citing Brooks’ vote in September 2021 against Nancy Pelosi’s version of the National Defense Authorization Act.
Katie Britt stated in her news release that attacks Mo Brooks:
“This is the latest example of why Washington is broken and why we don’t need ineffective, all-talk, do-nothing career politicians like my opponent in the U.S Senate.”
Mike Durant echoed Katie Britt’s attack in a WVNN radio interview.
Both Britt and Durant publicly state they would have voted FOR Pelosi’s NDAA!
You decide whether their votes represent your views:
Pelosi’s NDAA denied military personnel the liberty and freedom they fight and die for by mandating they take COVID-19 vaccines . . . or be fired. Hence, Britt and Durant admit they would have voted to fire military personnel who exercised their right to refuse a dangerous COVID-19 vaccine!
Pelosi’s NDAA forces our teenage daughters to register for the draft. Hence, Britt and Durant admit they would have voted to require our America’s teenage daughters to register for the draft!
Pelosi’s NDAA undermines America’s 2nd Amendment Right to Bear Arms by imposing “Red Flag Laws”, wherein a citizen’s guns are seized first (based on as little as rumor and surmise), and then the citizen must litigate to get them back! Hence, Britt and Durant admit they would have voted to violate the 2nd Amendment’s Right to Bear Arms, the 4th Amendment’s Right Against Unlawful Searches and Seizures, and the 5th and 14th Amendments’ Due Process Clauses!
Gun Owners of America states:
“This (2022 NDAA) language would create a Military Court GCO program—a disgusting violation of the Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights of our armed service personnel who offer their lives to defend those same constitutional rights every day. … If Nancy Pelosi gets this into the military code, then it becomes the “precedent” for enforcing gun confiscation against the rest of the population. Seizing firearms first and “getting the Due Process later” will never constitute sufficient Due Process, no matter how much anti-gunners may pretend it does.”
Mo Brooks’ Won a Major Victory for America! Mo Brooks and his Republican allies fought Pelosi’s NDAA. The result: the above three offending provisions were stripped out of the NDAA (no teenage daughter draft; no anti-gun Red Flag laws, no firing military personnel over vaccine mandates). Mo Brooks helped force Congress to produce a better defense bill . . . that Mo Brooks voted for, and which became law!
Both Britt and Durant say they would have voted for Pelosi’s NDAA. If Democrats can so easily out-maneuver Britt and Durant to surrender on teenage daughters being drafted, anti-gun Red Flag laws, and military personnel vaccine mandates, why should any Alabama citizen believe their campaign promises on border security, deficit and debt, moral values, or anything else? America already has too many weak-kneed RINOs in Congress. America can’t afford any more.
