Original Article

Americans are ready to move on from the current Republican leadership, choosing to vote out Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. According to a new Rasmussen Reports Poll, just 28 percent of likely voters have a favorable view of McConnell, while 61 percent say the GOP needs a new leader. Following his win, McConnell, who is the longest-serving GOP leader in Senate history, said that he doesn’t plan to give up his position anytime soon. However, several Republicans feel that new, younger leadership is needed in Congress. "Nobody, not Republicans, not independents, not Democrats in my state are happy with the leadership in Washington. I'm not either.


Absolutely agree. We need bulldogs, all teeth, bite and bark! Those two are milquetoast "cross the aisle" types who are more worried about cocktail party invites than they are about getting things done. Begone, vermin!!

Unfortunately, it will not happen. Whatever McConnell has on his fellow senators must be pretty intimidating.

Thanks to Mitch we lost Alaska and AZ and others and Mitch gets to keep his beloved job as a minority weasel. Despicable and unacceptable to have a leader working AGAINST the best interests of the party and working in the best interest of his own political power.

Mitch "MultiUseless" McConnell has a number of RINO fetch Senators to pump the "leadership". BTW, when MultiUseless finishes his term in January, 2027 he'll have an 85th Birthday in February.

I know: Let's put in Marjorie Taylor Greene and Josh Hawley, that will really bring in the independents and we'll probably get lots of Democrats crossing the aisle, too, so races won't even be close. s/o By the way, McConnell kept Merrick Garland off the Supreme Court, ushered through the nominations of three Trump Supreme Court nominees, and protected Trump from conviction following impeachment in the House. Oh, but he recognized that the Trumpy candidates were abysmal and that we can't win by harping about the 2020 election, so he has to go.

The last good thing that came from California politically was Ronald Reagan. McCarthy isn't Ronald Reagan; he couldn't even shine his shoes. I keep looking across the nation and I see all of these viable, dynamic leaders who are ready to lead. But the corporate (the Republican Party is a corporation) will not advance them. Nothing proved this more than when McConnell froze spending that could have resulted in a Republican senate. Why? Because that aren't the right kind of bought-and-paid-for Pubbies. Let's face it. The likelihood of saving our Republic is growing slimmer and slimmer. And the alternatives are drastic.

agree totally with the sentiment of your headline and body of the article but have a problem with one word: "retire" - as for Kevin McCarthy he hasn't proven sufficiently that he is not going to be a valuable asset to the repubs but, in the case of Hong Kong Mitch, he definitely needs to Leave because retire kind of infers that he leaves his post in a credible way, he has not and doesn't deserve any benefit of any doubt also, those jelly spined senators who are aligned with him need to Leave, too and everyone knows who I mean.

Voters don't figure in leadership contests. Very few have any idea. This is raw politics at work. As the ol' saying suggests, to get along you've got to go along. Guys like Mitch and Kevin can be big helps for your pet projects, help you bring home the bacon, make you an important legislator in your home district, and raise money for you...or cut you off at the knees.

To me there is a big difference between McCarthy and McConnell. McCarthy is no ball of fire but under his leadership the Republicans have picked up seats in both elections. Perhaps he has earned the trust to be Speaker. Obviously McConnell during this election cycle has proven himself unfit to be leader. If he resigns, however, the Democrat governor will appoint a Democrat to take his place.

Democrats have turned politics into warfare. Since 2015, they have outwardly declared war on any opposition. After President Trump won in 2016, democrats went berserk. They actually lost their minds. Now it was politics at its worst. Truth wasn’t even in their vocabulary. They said whatever they felt they needed to in order to not just defeat their enemy, but to destroy him too. They abandoned all semblance of comity, and became vicious liars throwing hate bombs from every direction at Trump, his family, and his supporters. There was nothing off limits. They gave President Trump no quarter and treated him as no other President had ever been treated. Democrats created this toxic political atmosphere and it is going to take someone who is able and willing to fight hard to overcome their perfidy. The very thing that the holier than thou crowd hate about Trump is the very thing that a leader now needs in order to beat back the vile cabal the represents every contingent of the democrat party. They need to hear harsh brutal truth. I challenge anyone to point out one reasonable individual in that rank mishmash of anti-Americans. Does anyone believe that an attempt to reach across the aisle will be met with anything but obstinance and ridicule or even more likely, a full frontal attack? Democrats want to destroy the opposition, Republicans for the most part want to believe that these lawless, vicious, and depraved individuals can be trusted. There is only one way forward and that is the complete and utter defeat of the democrat party. These people cannot be reasoned with because they will not yield. They will not willingly surrender. It is going to take a force so relentless and determined that they have no other option than accept defeat. McConnell nor McCarthy are up to that task. They don’t understand that fight we are in or they are actually complicit in the democrats desire to fundamentally transform this country. What we all know because of past experience by these two men, when they could have made a real difference in the country, they chose to do nothing. These are not the kind of men who frankly, want to pry the democrats death grip from the Republic. They instead will work to protect the status quo. We have left whatever remnants of good and honest government we had in the rear view mirror years ago. We either forge a better and more robust government of, for and by we the people as much as we are able to in the next couple years or we are toast as a Representative Republic. We must hold the line and more importantly hold democrats accountable for what they have done. McConnell and McCarthy just do not have it in them to fight this fight. The next two years are crucial. We need to present a united front with one goal in mind, kick this foul democrat party to the curb and show no mercy.

Certainly McConnell, and I don't particularly trust McCarthy, but he isn't so 100% certainly a bad guy, as McConnell is. But McCarthy seems, at minimum, to be too easily pushed into doing nothing useful, or helping the Dems that I wish we had a strong, brave conservative in that slot. McCarthy is definitely not that.

I just want fresh faces in leadership. The republican party needs to freshen itself up and prepare its youth for the future - whatever America's future is. Leaders who have a soapbox and are willing to use it and can force the msm and SM to listen to and report it. Leaders who know what effective messaging is. Leaders who remember America, as founded. Leaders who represent the interests of the American people, not the establishment, not only their donors, and not foreign interests. Having McConnell and McCarthy continue in their leadership roles is like having one's infirm elderly parents visiting one's house. After a few days, the visit gets real old and they start to smell.

America is in the fight for her life. We are in a fight so brutal, it is akin to some of the hand-to-hand battles our brave soldiers in WWII engaged in to save not only our Republic but the rest of the world. We had Patton, in WWII and we still have Donald J. Trump. Both men know how to wage brutal warfare, and win. And both men were and are victims of a relentless pursuit to destroy them with Patton dying under very suspicious circumstances. I pray for Donald Trump every night. Kevin McCarthy is a wimp, pretty boy, and appears not even to know how to throw a punch let alone engage in hand-to-hand brutal warfare. And Mitch McConnell is a traitor to republicans and the entire country. Pure and simple. He should be tried for crimes against this country with his business dealings with the CCP. He should never, ever have a leadership position in the Senate after his very public campaign against republican senatorial candidates leading to losing races that could have and should have been won. And both men have never even acknowledged the J6 political prisoners still laguishing in the DC gulag. Just for that neither man should ever hold leadership positions. However, with the exception of Donald J. Trump, there are NO republicans that are capable of engaging in brutal warfare against democrats and the insidious global deep state.

A national freight rail strike is viewed as increasingly inevitable as four rail worker labor unions have rejected a tentative agreement with rail companies. In September, Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh brokered a tentative deal between rail unions and rail carriers while President Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg were out of town. Union concerns centered around sick time and scheduling, and Walsh’s work appeared to have avoided a strike that had the potential for far-reaching consequences on the American economy. However, the deal has fallen to pieces, and the clock is ticking as a December 9 strike looms. On Monday, members of SMART Transportation Division,

Thursday, if you eat a nice meal, thank the Pilgrims. They made Thanksgiving possible. They left the Old World to escape religious persecution. They imagined a new society where everyone worked together and shared everything. In other words, they dreamed of socialism. Socialism then almost killed them. As I explain in my weekly video, the Pilgrims attempted collective farming. The whole community decided when and how much to plant, when to harvest and who would do the work. Gov. William Bradford wrote in his diary that he thought that taking away property and bringing it into a commonwealth would make the Pilgrims "happy and flourishing." It didn't. Soon, there wasn't enough food.

So, it’s no surprise that MSNBC dragged the coattail-riding Trump critic out, dusted her off, and asked her about Ivanka Trump’s recent announcement that she would “not be involved in politics” in the 2024 election cycle. According to Omarosa, who rose to fame as a contestant on former President Donald Trump’s reality show, The Apprentice, and later disgraced herself as a member of Trump’s administration, the timing of Ivanka’s announcement, which coincided with her father’s official 2024 declaration, was meant to cause “damage.”

Not a week had gone by after the midterm elections before California governor Gavin Newsom’s presidential possibilities were being talked up. A Republican consultant even suggested Joe Biden ask for Kamala Harris’ resignation and appoint Newsom as his vice-president. Biden could then either resign himself, leaving Newsom president, or position him to run as semi-incumbent in 2024. No matter what turns the journey takes, there will be a train wreck at the station. Don’t be fooled by the governor’s margin of victory this year (59-41) and in 2018 (62-38). He has done nothing in his public life that recommends him for the presidency. Popular, yes, competent, no.

For many Republicans, the final midterm election results were surprising— especially in the states of Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. Based on polling, it looked likely that Kari Lake, Adam Laxalt, and Mehmet Oz would win their contests. I believe that there are only three likely explanations for the unexpected results: late campaign surges, polling error, or aggressive ballot-harvesting. A late surge? Some Republicans are falling for an illogical narrative put forth by Democrats and the mainstream media.
