6 Ways McConnell Betrays the Republican Base

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 6/24/2022 5:03:31 AM

I do try to respect President Reagan's 11th Commandment: "Thou shalt not speak ill of thy fellow Republican." (snip) But…you knew it was coming…I sure wish we could move on from Mitch McConnell. Or rather, I wish we could find an effective way to compel Republican senators to move on from McConnell (and his lackeys) as their leader. I don't like him. I don't like the way he conducts business in the Senate. I don't like his imperious nature and his backroom double-dealings. I don't think he represents the vast majority of Republican voters

As much as I despise him overall, he did a good job with the supreme court. We are seeing the benefits now.

The author forgot to mention; McConnell's Honey-trap Chinese wife is wholly beholden to the CCP for the Millions they make from the party; ERGO McConnell is wholly owned by the Chinese Communists. Treason is an appropriate discussion to have re Mitch!

#2, I hear you, but I am not sure how well he did with those Supreme Court nominations. Some have been proven to be quite disappointing. At this point in the game, McConnell has done more harm than good. I do not care for him in the least. He is exactly as portrayed in this article. He is arrogant, corrupt, feels entitled, is a drag on the party and most of all cannot be trusted. He betrayed not only President Trump but the Republican base. He has done next to nothing while Joe Biden has taken a wrecking ball to this country. He is Frank Underwood.

As Chuck Schumer said on President Trumps first day if office, the intel community (deep state) has SIX ways to Sunday to get you. McConnell is part of the deep state. The Democrats have McConnells seat wrapped up in every way. If he resigns, the Democrat Governor replaces him with a Democrat, if he passes, mostly likely his wife Elaine Chao (family ties to Chinese commie party) would serve out his term. Deep state wins in every direction.

It just confirms to me that these "Republicans" are Democrats who ran as Republicans. For the fact that they side with Democrats on several issues, it demonstrates to me how much Democrat policies are failures and the biggest failure is taking God out of society. . .

How well I remember when Linda Smith challenged Patty Murray after her first term as a senator from Washington, and because she was a principled conservative, McConnell cut her off without one cent of support. He is an unprincipled, arrogant jerk.

OK, but the age-old question continues to arise: just who is going to successfully challenge him for the GOP leadership job? Simply being conservative is not enough - he would have to be able to muster a majority of votes in the GOP senate caucus. Don't look for any leadership change anytime soon.

Why Democrats Want to Get Rid of the Suburbs 44 replies

The war on America's suburbs has opened a new front. Buried in President Biden's proposed budget for 2023 is a $10-billion bribe for suburban communities to remove zoning barriers to high-density housing. (snip) It is a strong signal to Democrat-controlled states to gear up the decades-long efforts to bludgeon affluent communities into submitting to "housing justice" and providing their "fair share." (snip) These efforts are being fueled by housing activists and progressive think-tanks like the Brookings Institution, which declared in a January 2022 article: "By some measures, the suburban counties around New York City have some of the worst exclusionary zoning in the nation."

Hunter Biden is one of the most deeply disturbed, even revolting, people known to the American public. Yet Miranda Devine, at the New York Post, says there’s evidence that the person on whom Joe Biden is relying for political advice isn’t his wife, chief of staff, or former boss, despite what everyone thinks. Instead, it’s Hunter Biden. That would certainly explain both why and how our country is going so quickly to Hell in a handbasket. It's almost impossible to exaggerate just what an appalling man Hunter Biden is.

Pete Buttigieg’s tour de force of fatuousness,

Pete Buttigieg took questions on Sunday from George Stephanopoulos. This little man with the carefully tweezed eyebrows, sleazy 5:00 shadow, Alfred E. Neuman mien, and orator’s voice hid behind fatuous, hackneyed political babble even as he discretely revealed the hardcore totalitarianism that drives him and, indeed, drives the entire Biden administration. In many ways, Buttigieg is like a Stepford politician. There’s something eerily unreal about the man as, no matter the question, he responds with administration talking points rather than substantive information.

In Ukraine, a hundred days of warfare has passed and the Russians are still there, pounding cities, and not going away. In the east, they appear to be gaining ground in taking control of the Donbas. They still have overwhelming superiority of men and materiel, and the signals from Moscow say no let-up. Yesterday, the Russians were actually back to shelling Kiev. So much for all that political tourism -- from Jill Biden, to Bono, to Boris Johnson, to Nancy Pelosi... The Russians also destroyed a major grain terminal in Mykolaiv.

It's been over a month since Piers Morgan Uncensored was launched. Rupert Murdoch reportedly signed Morgan to a $63 million three-year deal and left no stone unturned in promoting the show. There were billboards and newspaper advertisements. Morgan appeared on Fox News and on all major shows in the UK. It was looking promising. Then Morgan leaped straight into the gutter, pulling a cheap publicity stunt ably supported by his employers. Morgan claimed that Trump walked out of his ‘explosive’ interview because of his tough questions. He even wrote an exaggerated piece about it in the NY Post. The claim of the walkout turned out to be a complete falsehood
