Why Re-Electing McConnell As Senate Leader
Was The Best Gift The GOP Establishment
Could Give Trump

Original Article

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was re-elected to another term as GOP conference chief on Wednesday after an underwhelming midterm performance kept Republicans from taking a majority in the upper chamber. But McConnell’s win as Republicans lose is just going to be more ammo for former President Donald Trump, who announced a third bid for the White House just one night before the Senate leader’s re-election. Neither Trump nor McConnell looks triumphant after last week’s elections. Many of Trump’s top candidates lost key races while McConnell emerges as the culprit for losing the majority. McConnell’s PAC, the Senate Leadership Fund (SLF), re-routed scarce resources from competitive pick-up opportunities

I dont know. The uniparty and deep state have been giving Trump gifts for years. How has all that worked out? I think he would be better off without their gifts. I know we would.

Twiddle away, #2. Mitch will be in the senate as GOP leader in January '25 if FPDT gets elected. And he will give PDT a giant sized middle finger when PDT needs him most if not treated right. The cultists need to understand angering everyone not in lockstep with them gains nothing. Government doors swing in all sorts of directions. BTW, Mitch spent $386 million this election cycle. Trump $100 million. Money makes friends in politics.

There are several senate seats up for grabs in 2024 and 2025. So, Mitch may be there now, but may not be Senate majority leader come 2025, IF MAGA can continue to make progress.

No it wasn't. It was the worst thing that could happen. Just proved the republican party is filled with a bunch of surrender monkeys who are part and parcel of the Communist Death Democrats Cabal who want to impose a Stalin Communist dictatorship over all of us. They have failed us for the last time. No upside to this betrayal of us. No upside.

I wish Trump would simply expose and destroy one of the most evil and petty traitors to ever hide behind congress. Turtle needs to go. He really should have left several elections ago, but he decided to play kingmaker instead.

FTA: ~~ "McConnell’s re-election to Senate leader is a massive campaign gift to Trump, even though Trump’s chosen candidate, Scott, fell short. McConnell is the sort of D.C. swamp creature that Trump wins over voters by constantly colliding with. An 80-year-old lawmaker, McConnell will be the longest-ever serving Senate leader by the end of his latest term. McConnell is the Beltway establishment, with a grip on power that not even a failing midterm performance can undermine."~~ MAGA!!

We need a change from Milquetoast McChinless. He’s done some good but that was long ago. He can’t or won’t get popular conservative Republicans elected and is lacking in charisma and resolve. His re-election as Minority Leader reveals the degree to which most Republican senators are out-of-touch with their constituents. McConnell has lost the trust of non-elites and he doesn’t deserve another term in a leadership position. So disappointing.

Republican Reps. James Comer and Jim Jordan alleged at a press conference Thursday that President Biden was actively involved in overseas business dealings involving his son Hunter. Comer, citing whistleblowers, asserted that the Biden family "flourished and became millionaires by simply offering access to the family." The representatives alleged that Hunter Biden and Joe Biden participated in "waste, fraud, and abuse" in international business dealings. The Republicans are releasing a report Thursday outlining their findings. "This is an investigation of Joe Biden," Comer said.

The 2022 midterms are almost in the books. The large red wave did not materialize, although Republicans did pick up some congressional seats and, apparently, the House. There are significant and important reasons why a large red wave didn’t occur and one large warning for Republicans. First, before anyone says Republicans had bad candidates, keep in mind that the Democrats won the Senate with John Fetterman and Sen. Krysten Sinema, D-AZ, before him. Bad candidates didn’t stop them, and this article addresses why. It is important to remember that in 2010, the first midterm election after President Barack Obama was elected, Democrats lost 63 seats in the House of Representatives

U.S. Sen. Patty Murray will likely be the first woman to serve as Senate president pro tempore, a position that would place her third in line for the presidency. Murray will also likely chair the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee, controlling the federal purse strings and directing billions of dollars of spending. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer plans to nominate Murray, who was just elected to a sixth term, to the position, Murray’s office said Wednesday. The Senate president pro tem presides over the Senate in the vice president’s absence. The position is third in line for the presidency, after the vice president and the House speaker.

Polish President Andrzej Duda said in a tweet that he spoke with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and verifies "the premises of Article 4," which allows member countries to bring security concerns for discussion. The discussions come after Russian missiles crossed into Poland and killed two people, according to a U.S. intelligence official who spoke with the Associated Press. The two people were reportedly killed in the village of Przewodów, where a projectile struck, which is near the Ukrainian border. Following the reported explosion in Poland, NATO ambassadors will hold a meeting on Wednesday at Poland's request, according to Reuters.
The one promise Biden has kept since taking office 7 replies

The one promise that President Joe Biden has faithfully kept is his pledge to "close down" fossil fuels. We get two-thirds of our energy in America from fossil fuels, and almost one-third of our power comes from coal. That's quadruple the amount of energy we get from wind and solar, which are niche forms of energy. But Biden doesn't see it that way. He recently reiterated his pledge to end coal production altogether. "No one is building new coal plants because they can't rely on it," Biden said on Nov. 4 while in California. "We're going to be shutting these plants down all across America and having wind and solar."

At this point in time, it looks like Republicans are going to take control of the House of Representatives while Democrats will hold on to the Senate.

The fault lines for the 2024 elections are already taking shape with the two parties in diametrically opposed positions and there is no greater divide than over parental rights. That stark difference was no more evident than in a tweet from Rep. Eric Swalwell, who mocked the notion of parents making major decisions in the education of their children.The California Democrat insisted that it is akin to "putting patients in charge of their own surgeries? Clients in charge of their own trials?" Swalwell declared: "Please tell me what I’m missing here … This is so stupid." What Rep. Swalwell, a lawyer, is missing is called informed consent.

There’s something happening in New York. Tuesday’s mini red wave here only scratches the surface. New Yorkers are getting sick and tired of woke liberalism, and it’s showing in pockets of voters once considered the base of the Democratic Party. In short, there’s a crack in the traditional Democrat coalition, and Republicans have an enormous opportunity to expand that breach with time-tested arguments in the coming months and years. In the Hudson Valley, where I prevailed on Election Night over Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) chairman Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney — the first time in 42 years that a DCCC chairman lost re-election — voters once considered unreachable by Republicans

The outcome of the 2022 election was far different from what I expected – and what most pollsters and analysts expected. I thought Republicans would win dramatically bigger victories. When the exit polls had 75%, three-out-of-four, voters saying America was on the wrong track, I thought for sure there would be a repudiation of Democrats and a Republican tide. With the crisis in the cost of living (gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil, food, rent, and so on), the rising murder and crime rates in our largest cities, a flood of more than 4 million people illegally crossing our southern border, and the growing anger over schools indoctrinating our children with radical

The election last week defied reality. For example, John Fetterman, the Democrat who won the U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania, promised more inflationary spending, more lenient treatment of felons amid a violent crime wave and more of the left’s radical, parent-dissing sexual agenda. Yet he won. Do you really believe that a majority of Pennsylvanians voted for a stroke-damaged, hard-core leftist who comes across as a professional wrestling villain? Celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz was not the strongest Republican candidate and was perceived by many as a RINO. But he should have prevailed in an election in which Democrats had to defend the Biden train wreck.

Six years out of office, and the Obamas still esteem themselves oracles of racial justice and authorities of truth concerning America’s flaws. As witnessed at the recent unveiling of the Obamas' official White House portraits, in a photo taken in the Oval Office, both Barack and Michelle are positioned shamelessly front and center. Still smarting from the reproof of 2016, the Obamas take any opportunity to publicly defame the character of the political outsider who upset the collective vision Barack hoped Hillary Clinton would set in stone – as well as the people who voted for him.

Joe Biden, the military-industrial-congressional complex, State Department neocons, the War Party comprised of all Democrats and many corporate Republicans, and Western globalist elites have the United States and NATO in a Ukrainian proxy war against Russia. The warmongers are obsessed with destroying Russia. To achieve it, they are determined to fight to the last Ukrainian. In eight months, Congress has wasted $69 billion of American taxpayer money to fund their proxy war. That’s about $8 billion more than Russia’s entire annual military budget. And to the delight of the American arms industry, there is no end in sight. Biden is soon expected to request another $50 billion.  CORRECTION*

10 days after the Midterm Elections, Alaska is still counting votes. However, as the voting comes closer to an end, Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski has taken a slight lead over GOP challenger Kelly Tshibaka by 968 votes. Murkowski has 112,519 votes, 43.3 percent of the total vote share, and Tshibaka has 110,861 votes, 42.7 percent of the votes. Alaska goes by a rank-choice voting system which allows voters to list four candidates who advanced from a jungle primary in order of who they prefer to win. However, if no candidate receives a majority of first-choice votes on Election Day, the counting proceeds to a second round

Former Attorney General Bill Barr said Friday on PBS’s “Firing Line” that the Department of Justice seems to “have the basis for legitimately indicting” former President Donald Trump. Partial transcript as follows: BARR: If a former president commits a crime, you know, especially a serious crime, they should be indicted for it. If the Department of Justice can show that these were indeed very sensitive documents, which I think they probably were, and also show that the president consciously was involved in misleading the department, deceiving the government, and playing games after he had received the subpoena for the documents, those are serious charges. That’s serious.

In the days following the 2022 midterms, some self-anointed conservative thought leaders, who were never all that pro-Trump to begin with, have officially thrown the 45th President under the bus. These spineless conservatives have frolicked over to the DeSantis camp in a way that almost seems as if it was choreographed. Just like that, Trump is yesterday’s news -- he is to be discarded and forgotten about. ‘We need to move on from Trump!’ they’ll sheepishly exclaim. To that I say: pathetic… absolutely pathetic. This kind of thinking, to put it euphemistically, is unsound and illogical. While it’s hard to put a positive spin on the mediocre midterm results,
