McConnell points finger at Trump in
Capitol riot: ‘The mob was fed lies’

Original Article

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is explicitly pointing his finger at President Donald Trump for helping to spur the attack on the Capitol by the outgoing president’s supporters. The Kentucky Republican said Tuesday on the Senate floor, “The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.” McConnell spoke six days after the Democratic-led House impeached Trump on charges of inciting the Jan. 6 attack. A Senate trial on whether to convict Trump and perhaps bar him from ever again holding federal office is expected to begin in coming days. After years of supporting Trump


Pardon Julian Assange and let's see what dirt there is on these demons. Our own government won't release the blackmail they have on these types because that's all part of the game.

I have never liked McConnell. His true colors are coming out. He is a RINO and a lover of China.

McConnell is a traitor. If the Senate does anything other than dismiss the fake impeachment against President Trump, I will not be voting Republican again.

There they go again. Can't restrain themselves from using hot, inflammatory language, meant to rile, not bring reason and wisdom to the Well of the Senate. No reaching out to people who have seen their President excoriated for five years, the most vicious, cruel and relentless attacks, and who themselves have been demeaned, ridiculed, targeted and persecuted, marginalized and left without recourse. Not agreeing to the $2000 stimulus makes sense now. If one more nudge was needed to put those two radical leftists over the mark in GA, this was it.

Who knows for sure, as no comprehensive law enforcement investigations have yet to be concluded. But one thing is certainly for sure, both McConnell and Pelosi at the top of the heap of the UniParty Congressional Aristocracy were ultimately responsible for the security of the US Capitol building on January 6th, and the moronic mob action there made them look very incompetent. So both have a personal and political, and professional interest in projecting quick blame on others, especially Trump.

Wherever the cross-eyed little weasel goes he leaves a vapor cloud of sulfur lingering in the air. The whole point of finding trump guilty in this fake impeachment is to prevent him from becoming President again. Let's see who goes along with this lynch-mob.

Why am I not surprised? Mr. McConnell it was Pres. Trump who got you re-elected. You are a traitor and should be recalled but you have China on your side. No wonder Trump got blocked in every way to ruin his career. Despicable Deep State Republican senate leader. How does the senate find a way to tolerate him knowing how he has turned on Trump.

The response to the "storming" (haha) of the U.S. Capitol from its denizens is this: overwrought in the extreme, dishonest, vain, self-important, elitist, and stodgy. What a crew of weenies. Guess they don't have any daily life at all there anymore. McConnell is covering for Biden, China, and the Lord knows what else.

The soon to be former Senate Majority Leader is trying to deflect his failure to address the disenfranchisement of 74 plus million Americans. I wouldn't even support the disenfranchisement of democrat voters, much less tens of millions of conservatives who supported our soon to be former president.

Another swamp rat! His wife got a job from Trump and now he stabs Trump in the back. McConnell is running for cover because of his Chinese connection through his wife as revealed by Peter Schweizer. This is Mitch trying to immunize himself from future charges that he is profiting from China through his wife's family. This isn't the first time these charges have surfaced. Mitch is in deep doodoo with the Left.

Not to condone the nonsense at the Capitol, but the people in that crowd already knew about the evidence of fraud before Trump spoke a word. It was out there for anyone who cared to know since 11/4. Trump was reciting it so that the rest of the morons would maybe hear it. McConnell should be recalled. His political usefulness has passed its sell-by date, and his ties to China are dangerous in these times.

Does anyone have an actual number of those rioting? I always see the same 10 people breaking through the halls of congress. Also a riot usually involves many things torn down. Aside from a few things stolen. where is the damage to the Capitol? I would have expected the rotunda burned out or something similar.

Pelosi and McConnell are responsible for the security of the Capitol. They have 2500 Capitol Police. It was reported several days prior that caches of weapons were being distributed around the Capitol. The Trump crowd was able to identify some of the individuals that appeared they did not belong, as they had riot, or protective gear. The Capitol has many security cameras. They knew what was happening, as they were watching it on their security cameras, yet did nothing. This was allowed to happen, and encouraged to happen. Antifa was there to make it happen, and they were paid to do it. McConnell wants to cast the blame on Trump, when it is he that is to blame. McConnell has never been an active man. McConnell would have about 40 Senators, if Trump had not worked so hard to get the other 10 re-elected. McConnell should be replaced as leader. He has done nothing to limit the size of the government, nothing to represent the people, his following only the establishment elite. McConnell has allowed the Senate to become a rubber stamp. No debate, just omnibus bills nobody has read. McConnell has made the Senate not respected for any of the traditions, which are only privileges for the elite.

THe good people of Kentucky should follow the example of the people of Wyoming and Censure Mitch McConnell for his idiocy and handling of the most recent Trump impeachment. If it weren't for Trump, McConnell would have been Minority Leader. If it weren't for Trump, McConnell would not have 50 Republican Senators! The reason Georgia lost their 2 Republican Senators is McConnell's inaction and criticism of Trump since the election. Now he is doing what losing Republican have always done...suck up to Democrats in hope of getting some crumbs. Grow some balls Mitch. Your actions are condemning Republican's to permanent minority status.

The moronic mob lawlessness at the US Capitol was planned by extremists long before January 6th, and Trump’s speech had nothing to do with that mob action, that had already started when as Trump was still giving his speech. Clearly Trump did not tell anyone to go to the Capitol to break the law and after Trump finished his speech, with the huge crowd, it would have taken people listening to Trump’s speech about 45 minutes to reach the Capitol building after Trump finished his speech, a time when the mob was already inside the Capitol building. The proof of that is clear as a bell, as there is video of a BLM activist named Sullivan who traveled from Utah to DC for the expressed purpose of inciting that mob at the Capitol on that date and time, as he could be seen on the video telling the mob that they had to get Trump out of office and to burn down the Capitol building. That mob made the top of the Congressional Aristocracy, McConnell and Pelosi, go nuts, as they were ultimately responsible for the security of the Capitol building, and that moronic mob “outed” them as being incompetent, especially after it came out that Federal law enforcement had abundant intelligence beforehand that there was bound to be a lot of law breaking in DC on that date. That’s why they are projecting false blame on Trump.

The NAACP and a House Democratic lawmaker on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against former President Donald Trump, lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani and two extremist groups for their alleged roles in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. The complaint argues that Mr. Trump and Mr. Giuiliani, as well as the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers extremist groups, violated the Ku Klux Klan Act, a Reconstruction-era statute designed to protect formerly enslaved African Americans and lawmakers from white supremacist violence. The suit was brought by House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson of Mississippi and the NAACP.

Interest in a third political party is intensifying and now has reached an unprecedented level of approval according to a new Gallup poll. “Americans’ appetite for a third party has never been greater in Gallup’s nearly two decades of polling on the subject, and now a majority of Republicans are joining the usual majority of independents in wanting that option,” wrote senior editor Jeffrey M. Jones in an analysis released Monday. “Sixty-two percent of U.S. adults say the ‘parties do such a poor job representing the American people that a third party is needed,’ an increase from 57% in September,” he said.

Brussels—It took just three months for the rumor that COVID-19 was engineered as a bioweapon to spread from the fringes of the Chinese internet and take root in millions of people’s minds. By March 2020, belief that the virus had been human-made and possibly weaponized was widespread, multiple surveys indicated. The Pew Research Center found, for example, that one in three Americans believed the new coronavirus had been created in a lab; one in four thought it had been engineered intentionally. This chaos was, at least in part, manufactured. Powerful forces, from Beijing and Washington to Moscow and Tehran, have battled to control

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday that former President Donald Trump could play a “constructive” role for Republicans after his acquittal for allegedly inciting the Capitol riot. “I don’t rule out the prospect that [Trump] may well be supporting good candidates,” McConnell (R-Ky.) told the Wall Street Journal when asked what role he saw for Trump in GOP politics. “I’m not assuming that, to the extent the former president wants to continue to be involved, he won’t be a constructive part of the process.”

So you know that warning label they put on aerosol cans, right? The one that says something to the effect of “Do not use near open flame or store at high temperature”? As the Missouri lady below found out the hard way, they meant that. Although in her defense, she just left an aerosol can in her hot car too long, but you get the point. /break for tweet/ There are all sorts of warning labels on all sorts of products, many of which fall somewhere in between common sense and downright silly.

Tel Aviv, Israel—Dr. Anthony Fauci has won the $1 million Dan David Prize for "defending science" and advocating for vaccines now being administered worldwide to fight the coronavirus pandemic. The Israel-based Dan David Foundation on Monday named President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser as the winner of one of three prizes. It said he had earned the recognition over a lifetime of leadership on HIV research and AIDS relief, as well as his advocacy for the vaccines against COVID-19. In its statement, the private foundation did not mention former President Donald Trump, who undermined Fauci's follow-the-science approach to the pandemic. But

Nearly half of Texas' installed wind power generation capacity has been offline because of frozen wind turbines in West Texas, according to Texas grid operators. Wind farms across the state generate up to a combined 25,100 megawatts of energy. But unusually moist winter conditions in West Texas brought on by the weekend's freezing rain and historically low temperatures have iced many of those wind turbines to a halt. As of Sunday morning, those iced turbines comprise 12,000 megawatts of Texas' installed wind generation capacity, although those West Texas turbines don't typically spin to their full generation capacity this time of year.

Much of Texas is experiencing rolling blackouts, as utilities are unable to keep power flowing. Why are these blackouts happening? My colleague Isaac Orr explains at More than 2.5 million people in Texas are currently experiencing rolling blackouts as temperatures remain in the single digits in many parts of the state. The Lone Star state is currently short of electricity because half of the Texas wind fleet (the largest in the nation) is iced over and incapable of generating electricity. Additionally, the natural gas infrastructure Texas has become so reliant upon has also frozen up.

The crown teachers once put on Shakespeare now lies uneasy upon his head as the English playwright comes under assault from teachers who fault his un-woke attitudes regarding race, sexuality, gender and class. For the new breed of teachers, William Shakespeare is seen less as an icon of literature and more as a tool of imperial oppression, an author who should be dissected in class or banished from the curriculum entirely.(Snip) Elizabeth Nelson, who teaches English at Twin Cities Academy in St. Paul, Minnesota, told School Library Journal she gives her students Marxist theory when reading Shakespeare’s tragedy “Coriolanus” about the Roman leader.
