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.”

I don't want Trump to start a 3rd party, I want him and his voters to take over the GOP and get rid of all of the never Trumper's. He shouldn't have to leave the party, THEY do, That includes Mitch, Romney, Collins, etc.. If it wasn't for Trump, McConnell wouldn't have a job right now.

Mitch is done. Its going to be a lonely 5 1/2 more years for a 78 year old who feels his workplace is more sacred than say....a computer store in Kenosha. He chose that false narrative to attempt to destroy Trump, and it will backfire hugely. I actually dislike this cretin worse than say Pelosi or Schumer because traitors are far worse than your common enemy.

#5 If a roaring economy, energy independence and an excited base did not alter the dynamics in the republican party....what else would? Seven republicans (including mine from Louisiana) voted to convict Trump and Turtle spoke out against him. The republican party is a dead end, unless they have mass resignations of republican "leadership".

As an independent there isn’t much I can do but hope and pray my Republican friends finally have enough and walk away from the Party that has nothing but contempt for you. I suppose this is like battered wife syndrome. You know you should leave. You know it’s only going to get worse and never get better. But you just can’t get up the courage or resources to GET OUT. Sad state of affairs. I’ll keep praying for you all.

Mitch is a Doddering Old Fool who read the Followers of Trump Wrong. He thinks now that HE decreed Trump should be prosecuted (now that Impeachment blew up in his face) thinking the 80 million of Trump's voters will just come back to the Grand old Party. NO! AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN! Trump's followers are going to stick with Trump. We're going to work to find Primary Candidates and get rid of those RINOS, one by one, as their re-election comes up. Pretty soon, Mitch, you will be the only RINO left and you won't have any Clout at all in the Senate!!

Mitch's two-faced statements may be heralded by mainstream media outlets, but he's getting scorched by Mark Levin and other commentators. My bet is the Mitch's next step will be to try to further stifle dissent by joining with Dems to go after conservative outlets.

I will not vote for a Republican Party that has McConnell leading the Senate, or a Cheney in leadership. McConnell could have kept his mouth shut. He chose not to, and he has to be removed from party leadership right now. We cannot have a backstabber at currently the highest Republican office. We cannot go another step until McConnell is removed from leadership.

Oh, Mitch, how cute! How quaint! Bringing Pres. Trump from picking cotton in the fields to being an indoor hand. But somehow I don’t think a multibillionaire who built a business empire of his own and then became a President who changed the world without a dime of Soros or Chinese will be interested. Besides, Republicans aren’t supposed to think that way.

We are all not going to stick with Trump if he continues to play the .Republican game. I’m not party affiliated, and, after 4 years of watching the GOP stymie We The People’s agenda for the last 4 years, and turning a blind eye to the obvious election issues, there is no chance I will vote for a Republican or a Dem.

A third party will never make it. Remember Ross Piero? The country is almost equally divided now. Splitting up the Republican party will give the majority to democrats forever as they will stay bonded together as they are now. I think it would be better to start at the local level and get yourself or your likeminded neighbors elected to local position, pay attention to good young candidates and support them as they attempt to move up. Vote to clean up the Republican party by weeding out the RINOs and those who are detrimental to the country. There should be no room in the party for the likes of a Salwell, Pelosi, Nadler, Schumer, Bloomfield, Alexandra -Cortez, Omar, Talib, Maxine Waters and especially a Hillary. The dems can keep them as they are known for them. We could also work to develop a honest and fair media which we lack.

McConnell must be feeling the smack on the side of the head that the 75 million Trump supporters who make up about 80 plus percent of reliable Republican voters have been laying on McConnell. I would not put too much credence in what McConnell is saying today, because he has shown that he will turn on a dime while talking but is no action otherwise.

The Republican Party is not going to change DC regardless of how many so called conservatives you vote in. DC today is far more aligned with the communist manifesto than it is with the Constitution. Read both documents and determine for yourself. We are no longer allowed to have a say so in our government, which was the foundation principle in both the Declaration and the Constitution. DC is broken and no repair is possible. For you Texans,, TEXIT. Texas ain't the only place talking about this, look at it and make up your own mind.

Any requests for funds, that come from the RNC, or that have the name McConnell, Rove, Ryan and in Louisiana, Cassidy, automatically goes to file #13. John Kennedy maybe, it depends on who he's shilling for. McConnell, like the majority of GOPe politicians, think me and people like me, are too stupid to research the candidates and contribute to them directly. McConnell and the RNC think their favored syncopants are our only choice. I think he's senile!

The Paradox That Fuels
Our Divided Politics

Posted by GustoGrabber 4/2/2021 7:15:02 AM Post Reply
American politics is caught in a perverse paradox. The bases of both parties would like nothing more than to destroy the other party. But it is precisely this animus that prevents them from accomplishing their goal. That’s because the best strategy for partisans to wreak havoc in the other party is to pursue bipartisanship when they’re in power. When Barack Obama came into office with majorities in Congress, he opted to push his agenda on a party-line basis, starting with the 2009 stimulus package that passed the Senate with only three Republican votes and the 2010 Affordable Care Act that got no Republican support in the Senate.

A cultural change with immense implications is already under way, and only being hastened by Covid-19. It is not just about remote working.

And in 2015, the Federal Bureau of Investigation warned multiple companies that Chinese operatives had concealed an extra chip loaded with backdoor code in one manufacturer's servers.

President Joe Biden said he would “strongly support” moving the Major League Baseball All-Star Game out of Atlanta because of Georgia’s new voting law that critics say may suppress turnout at the ballot box. Biden spoke to ESPN’s Sage Steele in an 11-minute interview Wednesday night, saying he would back the MLB if the league decided to move the July 13 game out of Georgia in response to the GOP-backed election reform signed last month by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.(Snip) Biden characterized the new law–which adds a photo ID requirement for voting absentee by mail and bans

Little Petey Buttigieg is now playing in the big leagues, having made the tremendous leap from ineffectual mayor of a crime-ridden city to Transportation Secretary of the United States of America. To make a point about alternative transportation, he rode a bicycle to his first White House cabinet meeting – after first having several burly men drive him near the White House and then escort him and his bike. This kind of theater is typical for leftists, who often seem incapable of distinguishing fantasy from reality. Last week, Little Petey (who always reminds me of a cross between Alfred “What, Me Worry?” Newman and Beaver Cleaver)

President Joe Biden's Secretary of Education is looking into whether the president can cancel up to $50,000 in student loan debt for millions of borrowers.

On the campaign trail he said he wanted to wipe away $10,000 per borrower, but prominent Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have pressed him to pursue $50,000 in debt relief per student.

The Biden administration is granting thousands of illegal border crossers one-year renewable permits to stay in the United States to apply for asylum, a process that can take years. What’s more, according to a new report, they are allowed to receive Social Security cards, paving the way to government benefits and jobs. Immigration expert Todd Bensman, who has been embedded in the process for the Center for Immigration Studies, said in a new report that an estimated 34,000 recent border crossers have already been distributed around the country with the documents.

There are 10 new ideas that are changing America, maybe permanently. 1) Money is a construct. It can be created from thin air. Annual deficits and aggregate national debt no longer matter much. Prior presidents ran up huge annual deficits, but at least there were some concessions that the money was real and had to be paid back. Not now. As we near $30 trillion in national debt and 110 percent of annual GDP, our elites either believe permanent zero interest rates make the cascading obligation irrelevant, or the larger the debt, the more likely we will be forced to address needed income redistribution. 2) Laws are not necessarily binding

The Virginia Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Confederate statues of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson in Charlottesville can be removed, after a years-long legal battle involving attempts to preserve the historic Civil War memorials. Justice S.
