McConnell's Bitter Turtle Soup

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 2/20/2021 4:27:56 AM

Just how much does Mitch McConnell despise President Trump and his MAGA movement? While playing coy for weeks about his intentions before finally voting to acquit the president in an impeachment trial more preposterous than last year's farce, he immediately took to the Senate floor to lay the blame for the events of January 6 entirely at the president's feet. (snip) his decision to browbeat the president right after finding him "not guilty" reeked of cowardice. He gave every appearance of having raised a wet index finger in the air before determining how to proceed,

He has power over those in the Senate who vote for him...just like Nancy Pelosi. D.C. is run on blackmail and cash. But Kentucky, what is your excuse?

What has come out of all this is the exposure of 'the swamp' and the dire need to evacuate it. That will be hindered by the D C occupying troops... continuation of which is also exposing Democrats'/RINOs' guilty fear of this exposure.

The first order of business for the Republican Party is the removal of McConnell from Senate leadership. It the Republican Party Senators do not do that, then we have to form a new party with them not in it.

A new party let the republicans die on the vine and be the small spoiler party of RINOs and homeless because the democrats don't need or want them. Mitch McConnell doesn't care he's not going to run for his seat again that's why he did what he did.

Career DC politicians like Biden, McConnell, Pelosi, and Schumer are all charter members of the DC UniParty, and who are the ultimate DC “insiders” who have been running an “insider” system where “outsiders” like Trump who is the “ultimate outsider” are not allowed or wanted. Besides that Trump is one of a kind who was happy to kick over the UniParty financial apple carts much of it corrupt.

McConnell's remarks had dual purpose: First, he was banishing FPDT from Washington. Mitch was being very clear that his legacy will be trashed, backloaded with two impeachments and whatever other scandals can be scraped together. And with that he meant the MAGA movement had a choice, either cool it and get in line with the GOPe, or face backlash from the same. Second, he was warning FPDT that future political activity would bring troubles. That the GOPe would not protect him from the Dems anymore, unless he went into a quiet exile. Mitch has six years to go in his Trump-endorsed term. He's not going anywhere because the GOPe isn't going anywhere, except with its UNIPARTY partners. It has a few years of reduced profitability to make up.

Funny thing about Turtle, he has always been a craven coward. He has never been politically brave in his entire tenure in congress. I tried to read his bio on wiki a couple years ago, and gave up in disgust at the sniveling backstabber. One point that needs to be kept in the viral mix is this. He and Ryan made a joint statement approx 5 days or so before the 2016 election, saying they would not give a blank check to the incoming president whomever got elected. They knew then it was going to Trump, and this was their warning shot. Only promise those two crooks ever kept was that 'no blank check' statement, they never intended to support anything that helped the nation first before their own agenda. I am loving the fact that KY republicans are getting wise to Turtle, and may they find a way to dump him fast. Let him spend the millions allegedly given to him by his in-laws still in China.

For a couple of years, my wife and I escaped Obama’s America by owning a Pacific Ocean hotel in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. The irony was that in supposedly socialist Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega's government left us alone far more than government did in the supposedly free country of the United States of Obama. Still, while Ortega 2.0 might have shed most of his socialism, he had not shed his lust for power, and the job of making sure he never lost again was that of the Chief Justice Roberto Rivas Reyes of what is in effect the Nicaraguan Supreme Court.

We are living in what seem to me to be terribly fraught times, times that are even more worrisome than those at the height of Cold War tensions, when we schoolchildren were drilled on what to do in case of a nuclear attack--an attack that was in fact highly unlikely to occur. Why do I say this? What are these overweening concerns? Many relate to government policies. The Biden administration seems hell bent on reversing every Trump administration policy, even those policies that were quite successful.

Americans need to get their kids back in school. Where there are powerful teachers’ unions, though, the teachers have discovered the joys of a bunny slipper commute, a minimal workday, and a full paycheck. When NBC’s Savannah Guthrie pressed Kamala Harris on the new administration’s plan to restart classroom learning, Harris replied with non-responsive, meaningless, double talk. Had she been auditioning for an Irwin Corey homage, it would have impressive. As it was, it showed both an administration and a vice president that are incompetent.

“I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture. I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far.” Thus spoke Nikki Haley -- former South Carolina governor, former ambassador to the UN, and now presidential aspirant -- exposing once again her self-serving bona fides. In denigrating Donald Trump, the establishment Republican ended up revealing to Trump’s loyal base of 75-80 million supporters just how much she is motivated by opportunism. Also, just how out of touch she is with the rank and file. Haley’s betrayal of President Trump took the form of a forceful condemnation: “We need to acknowledge he let us down.

It’s like some creepy horror story: Whenever Biden gives a speech, there’s an almost spectral figure standing behind him. It doesn’t take too much imagination to liken that figure to Grim Reaper, waiting for Biden’s appointment with his final destiny. Of course, it’s not the Grim Reaper; it’s merely Kamala Harris, who’s clearly being prepped to take over as president in Biden’s place as soon as possible. As part of this obvious agenda, Harris is already handling some of Joe’s major foreign policy telephone calls.

Harvard Medical School assistant professor Michelle E. Morse says a new study she participated in demonstrates how slavery reparations “could have been as effective as a vaccine” for COVID-19. Researches claim that infection rates for the contagion would have been reduced by up to 68% if Black Americans possessed $250,000 per individual or $800,000 per household for the historical injustice of slavery. “[Slavery reparations] could have been as effective as a vaccine,” she said for a Harvard Crimson piece published Feb. 16. “I think the fact that the U.S. has skirted its responsibility and avoided reach for reconciliation in a meaningful way

For the last two years, he has been going after some of the biggest, most powerful Democrats in the state of Illinois.His office indicted a Chicago alderman who had been serving since 1969. Edward Burke had been in the crosshairs of prosecutors for four decades but it wasn’t until Lausch came into office that he was indicted.Then there’s the case of the most powerful state politician in the United States, Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan. His aides and cronies have been indicted for various crimes of influence over the years and Lausch has now set his sights on Madigan himself.
