'Nancy Pelosi's in the clutches of a
left-wing mob': McConnell
vows to stop impeachment

Original Article

In a digital campaign ad that first aired last week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of being "in the clutches of a left-wing mob" and forced to proceed with impeachment proceedings against President Trump. McConnell, 77, is seeking his seventh consecutive term as a Republican Kentucky senator with the hope of remaining the majority leader of the Senate, a post he has held since the midterm wave of Republicans were elected in 2014. McConnell, who recently referred to himself as the "grim reaper" of socialist Democratic legislation passed by the House of Representatives,

I don’t trust McConnell. If push comes to shove, I am not sure he would stand with the President. His family’s ties with the Chinese gives me pause. If the President goes after public servants who have enriched themselves because of the positions they hold, Myrtle the Turtle may have some ‘splainin’ to do. Access and influence is the grease that makes the wheels of government move and I am sure many people are cashing in one way or another. I do appreciate the job McConnell has done on the President’s judicial appointments. Would he remain loyal? You just never know. The President has done excellent things for the country but some Republicans would rather stick with the status quo. I fear McConnell is one of those.

I am often suspicious of Senator McConnell and where he stands...although he is all we have...and he usually comes through! A big question is why aren’t our Elected Republicans NOT out there defending The REPUBLICAN President of the United States, Donald’s J. Trump?...they disgust me! We aren’t called the Stupid Party for nothing!

The reason I was drawn to Trump was that he did not need the money of rich people to win. Now we are finding out that bribes by rich people was only part of the corruption, and only part of their increase in wealth. They need rich Americans to contribute to their campaign so they can get elected. But the foreign aid kick back was where the real money was. Our Congress has had a "for sale" sign out front, and we are the ignorant goobs who pay our tax bills to facilitate all of this. Now we know that you would have to look at their extended family wealth before going into office and compare that to today. If only we had an uncompromised press with curiosity. If only they were not hired because of their family connection to politicians.

Senator McConnell should get more credit for a lot of things, foremost holding firm against giving Obama a shot at a Supreme Court Justice Merrick Garland. By doing so, we got Gorsuch and then Kavanaugh. He'll herd his cats sufficiently to prevent a Senate conviction if it comes to that.

Pelosi has lost all traces of fairness, sanity, dignity and common sense. She, like McConnell, is a good argument for term limits. So many senior senators and house members have enriched themselves by their positions but so have the freshmen members, corruption is easy when you hold all the cards. The Obamas and the Clintons are probably the extreme examples of corruption and thievery in government but there is also far too much at the lower levels. As long as they are entrusted to police themselves it will never change.

I agree with #4.....but if several senators switch from R to D (or grandstand), McConnell might not have the votes to do what he intends.. The certainty or uncertainty of impeachment by the Senate is unclear.

It's hard to believe that McConnell would want to be memorialized in history as the guy who turned America to the dark side by not standing with the President and supporting an impeachment vote. I understand the concern of L.Dotters here. But, at the end of the day, if it ever came to a Senate vote, McConnell will do the right thing in his own way - either not allow the vote or make sure his pubbie colleagues tow the line and successfully vote for no impeachment. Even if Mittens bails out and declares his true dim party affiliation.

I appreciate McConnel's position to stop impeachment, but I didn't like this statement: ''His call to action is simple. "But I need your help," he said. 'Please contribute before the deadline.'' Why must we contribute for him to do his job? Is that a quid pro quo? I think it would be better for him to do what is right, and then maybe people will be convinced to contribute their votes, come election time!

In this day and age of curious people with access to the internet, how Pelosi thought her own son's ties to Ukraine, along with her's, would escape detection baffles me. Not to mention her legislative aide who happens to be a Ukrainian national with dodgy ties.

Dims in the know realize they are effed for the 2020 election and are therefore counting on their fallback plan: the "great white hope" Milquetoast Mittens. Create enough chaos and they hope he'll oust DJT in the primaries. Then it's back to party time - the Washington DC Uniparty corruption as usual.

Are the Democrats working with the RINO Mitt Romney to try to get the wimpy Republicans to nominate Romney for President through the Republican primaries next year? As the Democrats know that they can kick the weak holier than thou Romney into the gutter and easily defeat him in the 2020 general election. Even the TV talking head Candy Crowley was able to do that in a presidential debate. In contrast the Democrats recognize that their weak presidential candidates don’t have a chance to defeat the street smart junkyard dog President Trump. Any wimpy Republicans who would go along with such a Democrat scenario would be committing political suicide as very few Trump supporters would ever vote for those Republicans again, and Trump supporters make up the majority of the Republicans who actually vote.

Boy, the first four words of #1's comment are EXACTLY what I was going to start with. Ultimately, #1's comments pretty much cover it for me, too. McConnell has done well on judges, but I would love to have a REAL, PRINCIPLED conservative in his place. I think that if he saw his opening, he'd gladly stab Trump in the back.

Mitch has a Constitutional duty to check down the runaway impeachment train engineered by Pignasty and Pencil Neck Shifty. If he does not stop it then the credibility of the Senate will be compromised and weakened forever. However with Mitch getting pressured by Romney Snowe and the rest of the Rino Squad of The Dark Side he could be turned against Trump. Mitch looks for the runaway mob then jumps in front of it to lead.

For those of us who can remember when our politics was more civil, when Republicans and Democrats actually seemed to respect each other and could trade control over the presidency without wild claims of illegitimacy being hurled at the incumbent, the recent behavior of Democrats is puzzling. How can one explain the now obviously transparent “Russian Collusion Delusion,” or the more recently spiking “Trump Impeachment Fever,” particularly when this last is over the claim he sought aid from the Ukraine in exposing the corruption of former Vice President Joseph Biden?

Strangest among all the many melodramas of the last two weeks were the blaring headlines that President Trump had dared to talk with the Australian Prime Minister—and referenced the role of foreign governments and in particular Australia in U.S. electoral politics in 2016. Given the hue and cry of Democrats in the last three years, they should have been delighted that the president was peremptorily warning foreign nations to cease to currying favor with presidential candidates and asking them to hand over what information, if any, they had of past “collusion.” In fact, they were outraged and once again returned to “collusion” charges, as if Trump were subverting the 2020 election.

Some say abortion is a 'health care' option for pregnant women. Others say it is the forced separation of soul and body of an unborn human being. In the U.S. the debate about whether abortion is good or bad for our society has become white hot with Blue State legislatures passing pro-abortion laws and Red States laws opposing abortion. The gap between pro-abortion Democrats and anti-abortion Republicans has been widening every year since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1973 that abortion was legal in all States.

The Democrats in 2016 graciously gave Americans the opportunity to do as we were told and vote for Hillary Clinton. And just as we so many times disappointed Barack Obama, we failed them as well, proving our illegitimacy as a citizenry. Electing Trump was the last straw for them – plastic, of course, paper is for us rabble. They used to want only our money, but since we elected Trump, they’ve decided to come for everything else we enjoy as free citizens of the Republic. Trump is all that stands between the America we cherish and the left’s policies for “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

If you watch cable or network news, all you hear about is impeachment. To the talking heads on CNN and MSNBC, it’s as if it already happened. Reps Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler speak as if it’s a foregone conclusion, and shed crocodile tears about being “heartbroken and prayerful” over the process. The fact is, an impeachment inquiry has yet to begin. Opening such an inquiry would require a full House vote, making vulnerable representatives in districts President Trump won handily in 2016 go on record in favor of removing a duly elected president for the high crime of doing his job.

Republicans have questioned, and continue to question, whether the Obama intelligence community used foreigners -- from Australia, Italy and the United Kingdom -- to spy on the Trump campaign. Did they outsource spying, in other words. That is part of what Connecticut Attorney General John Durham is investigating, at the request of Attorney General William Barr. But in a very sympathetic interview with former CIA Director John Brennan, NBC's Chuck Todd never asked difficult questions about the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation and Brennan's possible role in it.
