Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) expressed doubt that the Republican Party could gain a majority in the upper chamber in the midterm elections. He cited "candidate quality" as a reason the GOP could struggle as it hopes to flip several swing seats and ward off Democratic bids for vulnerable Republican seats.


This man needs to go.

He is in on the steal. They can't afford for Republicans to get a majority, because we deplorable would demand Trumpesque action on the Swamp's illegal and unconstitutional acts. They are manufacturing the excuse.

Unfortunately, he's right, but the GOP could be helping them improve their messaging, if they wanted to. The Democrats are bashing these candidates as out of touch with the "stolen election" comments. What needs to happen is to change the direction of that conversation, and point squarely at how Democrats are fighting and resisting any/all attempts to even check on the procedures and process in the most recent elections. President Trump could also change his comments and focus on the problems that happened in the last election. He could mention how there were a lot of problems in the last election, and you know because of how hard the Democrats have been fighting any inquiry which has many people questioning if the Democrats have something to hide. But, then push hard on getting the vote out in such massive numbers in November, for any/all Republican candidates. Again, stop talking about any election being stolen. It's over, turn the page, and move on instead of wasting effort where nothing will change the results.

We have wasted far too much time rehashing a stolen election. It happened - get over it and win the next election, boys and girls. Else nothing will matter. For the life of me I don't understand the Oz endorsement. We CANNOT afford weak candidates and we mustn't allow getting side-tracked on messaging.

Re #7 - Really? The Dems are destroying this country and they all talk like they're winners, well, they are, but not the country. And so you have a Presidential election corrupted but we're suppose to move on to the next election and then lose again because of corruption and fraud? So just how many Republicans, etc have to get out and vote in 2022 and 2024 to over compensate the Dem cheating? That's not a solution but admitting defeat. Pathetic. You should read this article about the race in PA:

McConnell and the GOP Leadership Do Not wish to have control over both houses going into 2024 BECAUSE 1) They are happy to support most of Biden's plans especially those designed and approved of by the "Deep State and MIC". 2) They know the next 2 years things will be getting worse and they Do Not want to be seen as having control over the 2 branches. Plus, just like Obamacare the have no intention of overturning the Inflation Act. 3) They need the Democrats in a position to where they can continue to attack Trump. The GOP is not a friend to the average American that has supported them in the past. In fact, like the Democrats they believe we are serfs.

The left has installed a failsafe against a Conservative landslide in our government. That failsafe is called the US Senate. The Republicans can have a ten seat lead in the Senate, but it won't matter because there are more than ten RINOs that the left can count on to stay in power. One of those RINOs is Mitch McConnell. It's why the Republicans never present any meaningful alternative to the Democrats. Trump came along and gave an alternative. Look what they did to him.

Tucker Carlson nailed it last night re: matter what happens he retains his post as head of the Senate, even on the losing side. He has no incentive to urge the Republican candidates to run on crime, immigration and the border, etc. And he doesn't! (Probably hates those who are Trumpets anyhow.) Meanwhile, we are going down the tube.

He quit giving $ to Oz because Oz is so out of touch with his hopped for constituency that he wastes valuable time telling those folks in Pa. how inflation is costing his wife so much more in her purchasing vegetables for crudités, and he is not even counting $ for the wine. Crudités in Pa where so many can't pay for gas AND food. Where it is too dangerous to live in the large cities and getting iffy in the small. CRUDITÉS!!!!!!!

The Republicans make their hay pretending to be the opposition party, while at the same time allowing the communists to take 95% or more of what they want. The nation slides ever downward toward total collapse while these scoundrels line their pockets. Turns out that's the American way, and only lately are people realizing the joke.

Mitch surrenders and concedes defeat, before the election, attacking the Republican candidates as "unqualified". This is the commander leading the charge to re-take the Senate. McConnell has been Republican leader for 40 years, almost as long as the Castro's have ruled Cuba. There are term limits in the Republican Party for Committee Chairmen. Did they forget to term limit the Senate leader? I want the man gone. He is corrupt, a Rino, and useless. We will never save this country with McConnell at the helm.

What the h*** does McConnell know about “quality” when he caves to the degenerate Democrats half of the time? Instead of leading the charge, he wants his party to be satisfied with the lukewarm status quo? What sort of leader does that? He’s more worried about the survival of himself, his wife and their “Chinese” enterprises than the country. He’s a despicable, selfish, evil, etc., etc. man.

The negativity McConnell expressed is more than enough reason for him to be replaced as Republican leader. It is true that the candidates in Georgia and Pennsylvania are surprisingly weak but considering their even weaker Democrat opponents an effective leader would be working like mad to improve Oz and Walker’s standing. Instead he pulls funds from Oz’s campaign. McConnell and the Rinos blame Trump for losing the Senate due to the election of two Democrats in Georgia. The two Republican duds were chosen by McConnell. He is the reason, not Trump, the Senate went Democrat. As an aside Trump bears a lot of blame for Oz being the candidate running for Senate in Pennsylvania. I don’t know if true but I have read that Sean Hannity played an important role in selling Oz to Trump. My advice is never, ever take political advice from Hannity.

McConnell does not want to win control of the Senate. If he does, the Republicans would actually be expected to produce results and do what they said they would do. With the Democrats in control, all McConnell needs to do is sit back and criticize and whine about not being in control of the Senate. He likes the title of Senate Minority Leader as it carries no real responsibility but the name sounds good on a resume. Republicans need someone with a backbone who supports Republican candidates, fights for their candidates, and is not such a passive, boring swamp creature willing to wallow in the swamp mud.

The Senate has always been an iffy proposition, given this year's assortment of states, contested seats and the quality of the candidates. You can focus on McConnell if you want to, but he has little to no control over who participates in or wins the nomination races. Mediocre candidates will run mediocre races.

In the past, the comfort zone for Republicans was to remain the minority in Congress. This was seen by Republicans as safe since they could not be blamed for any bad legislature and their excuse would be "We don't have the majority to stop anything." Those in charge of the Republican party have been around long enough to remember those days. Basically, they get paid and get a lot of perks for doing absolutely nothing. Then Trump came along, and Trump and Republican voters demanded that Republicans actually do something. In the Republican leadership minds, this could not stand. So, Trump had to go. The Republican leadership is just doing what the Republicans have done for over sixty years. Nothing. All talk and no action is the Republican mode of governing. So, no campaigning for Republicans running for office. No funding effort for any Republican running for office. Just sit back, say nothing for support of those running, and hope the Republican voters don't notice.

Is there a bigger traitor to this country than Mitch McConnell? NO. By his statement and signal of defeat three months out from the election, McConnell has just GUARANTEED the republican loss. He just signaled all the big donors, however many there are, to close their check books. And the very much needed small contributors are being told don't waste your money. Can you imagine this? Can you imagine any democrat leader doing this? We know that Biden and his entire family are in the pocket of the chinese, but someone PLEASE needs to take a look at McConnell and his wife and her family and expose them all for the traitors they are. This statement by McConnell is astonishing and sickening.

Donald Trump Faces Possible Expulsion From SAG-AFTRA As Union's Board Sets Special Session. The former star of The Apprentice – and soon-to-be former president – has been a member of the union and its forerunners, SAG and AFTRA, since 1989. The two unions merged in 2012. Article XIV of the SAG-AFTRA Constitution states that members may be suspended or expelled for “engaging in actions antagonistic to the interests or integrity of the union.” Expulsion requires a two-thirds vote of the national board, but Tuesday’s meeting is just the the start of the process, which could take weeks to complete and includes a hearing on the charges against him.

Judge Royce Lamberth issued the order in response to litigation by the group that has dragged on for more than five years and seeks the public release of information from Clinton's tenure at the State Department. 'Any further discovery should focus on whether she used a private server to evade FOIA and, as a corollary to that, what she understood about State's records management obligations,' the judge wrote about the federal open records law.

It marked the latest salvo in an increasingly bitter row over the thousands of people crossing the border daily. Republicans have stepped up their attacks on the Biden administration as they try to make immigration the theme of November's midterm elections. Biden hit back as he addressed the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Gala. 'Republicans are playing politics with human beings, using them as props,' he said.

There has been a creeping meme among some Republican voters indicating that they will refuse to vote because they are fed up with congressional Republicans. They are telling everyone who will listen how horrible congressional Republicans are and are asking, "Why vote when our representatives do nothing and get nothing done?" People who advocate not voting are advocating surrender to the leftist mob and surrender to Democrats who have ruined a perfectly good country. They are recommending surrender to the leftists who are persecuting Republican conservatives. There is no other way to read this: If you won't vote, you turn the reins of what power you have over to Democrats.

Less than half of Americans can name the three branches of the federal government—executive, legislative and judicial—according to an annual survey of civics knowledge conducted for the Constitution Day holiday on Saturday. Respondents to the Annenberg Public Policy Center’s survey also had little understanding of the impact of a Supreme Court ruling, and few could enumerate the freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment. “My impression is that even in prestigious universities, maybe 30% of all students could pass the civics test required of incoming immigrants,” said Joseph Ellis, a Pulitzer Prize-winning constitutional historian.(Snip)One-quarter of respondents could not name even one branch of the federal government,

Rome—Pope Francis urged Westerners to be more open to immigration Thursday, insisting that it is a necessary antidote to the West’s “demographic winter.” In forgetting how to welcome migrants, the West lost much, because it “needs people,” the pontiff told reporters during his return flight from Kazakhstan to Rome. Especially considering the “demographic winter,” which is so evident in Spain and Italy. “In Italy there are empty villages with just twenty old ladies and nothing else,” he said. “Why can’t we make a policy in the West where immigrants are included with the principle that the migrant should be welcomed, accompanied, promoted, and integrated?” he asked.

With red lights flashing nearly everywhere, the economy’s prospects look grim. Soaring inflation, crashing home sales, plunging GDP, falling real incomes. No question, the economy is a mess. So why is the Biden administration saying things are going better? It’s not just this week’s “unexpected” 8.3% inflation jump. Or the scary plunge in stock prices, destroying trillions of dollars in household wealth in just days. It’s that the ruling party, the Democratic Party, seems utterly oblivious to the damage it’s done. This week, President Joe Biden touted the “progress”

Guests at Disney World in Florida are complaining about the outrageous cost for average families to visit the resort while griping about broken-down, faulty rides, dirty facilities, and filth littering the walkways and attractions. CEO Bob Chapek has overseen Disney’s expanding immoral wokeness while hiking prices into the stratosphere and allowing the resort to devolve into disrepair under his watch. Social media is being flooded with complaints by visitors who are relentlessly bashing the Happiest Place on Earth while carping that Chapek is obsessed with cutting costs and raising prices instead of reinvesting in the resort, according to the New York Post.

A California college professor has vacated his position after speaking what sounded like a wicked word. Per his University of Southern California faculty page, Greg Patton is an expert: Greg Patton is an expert in communication, interpersonal and leadership effectiveness. He has received numerous teaching awards, been ranked as one of the top teaching faculty at USC and helped USC Marshall achieve numerous #1 worldwide rankings for Communication and Leadership skill development. That’s all well and good, but the expert recently communicated a problematic sequence of syllables. The Marshall School of Business teacher was presiding over a virtual class when he schooled students on audience engagement.

Illegal immigrants who were flown in unannounced to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday are now being moved to a military base in Cape Cod. The 50 migrants have been put on buses by Gov. Charlie Baker to travel the 32 miles to Joint Base in Cape Cod (JBCC) just 48 hours after they landed in the billionaire’s enclave. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew in the immigrants from Venezuela on Wednesday, sparking a widespread cry of outrage from the liberal leaders of the small island in Massachusetts. It was declared a humanitarian emergency, with the island leaders responding in the same way as a hurricane.
The Trump Raid – We’re Missing the Point 23 replies

“The documents were declassified!” “Trump had every right keep them!” “They posed no risk to national security!” Conservatives have been defending Trump with these kinds of arguments ever since the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago last month. They’re missing the point, though. Seeking to prove that Trump did nothing wrong in possessing these documents is like trying to establish that the victims of Stalin’s show trials weren’t in fact Trotskyites. Well, of course they weren’t. But Stalin didn’t care if his enemies – perceived or real – were Trotskyites or “counter-revolutionaries.” What mattered to him was that they were his enemies.

Vineyard Migrant Kerfuffle

A person can make a compelling case that dropping unsuspecting migrants off in places like Chicago or San Francisco is cruel, but Martha’s Vineyard? Isn’t it more humane to send migrants to well-heeled communities than to allow them to live in “squalor” in makeshift tent cities under highway overpasses? Because I rarely hear the left worry about the latter. Then again, why has a story about 50 migrants spending a couple of days on Martha’s Vineyard garnered far more coverage and outrage from left media and punditry media than 51 migrants being cooked alive in a tractor-trailer only last month? Why is it barely news that officials dumped 1,000 migrants into
