AN UNHELPFUL RELIC OF AMERICA’S PAST!

6 Ways McConnell Betrays the Republican Base

By J.B. Shurk at American Thinker:

I do try to respect President Reagan’s 11th Commandment: “Thou shalt not speak ill of thy fellow Republican.”  I know ideological litmus tests rub some people the wrong way.  I get that turning internal disagreements into political losses is self-defeating.  I agree that priority number one is to beat back the Marxist hoards pushing America to the cliff’s edge.  And it sure is nice to pat ourselves on the back for having a “big tent” open to everyone.  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, and even worse, I don’t think he even cares.  I find him off-putting and arrogant and a terrible spokesperson for the Republican Party.  I do not think he has ever convinced a single non-Republican voter to come onboard.  I’m not certain he believes in much aside from the accumulation and maintenance of raw power.  And to the extent he actually does have sincere beliefs, those beliefs seem hopelessly aligned to an outdated Republican Party still grazing in the country-club safe spaces of bourbon-swilling “elites.” 

His fingerprints are all over the Senate’s new gun control bill, of course, because nothing gets done on the Republican side unless Mitch first snaps his fingers or gives his blessing.  His control over Republicans in the upper chamber looks more mafia don than minority leader.  So once again Senate Republicans are marching down a path in which they will congratulate themselves for having taken a “historic step” in fighting “gun violence,” while doing nothing other than undermining the Bill of Rights and leaving their voters more vulnerable as future targets for Democrats’ lawless bureaucratic harassment.  (Tell me that McConnell and his boys don’t secretly enjoy the idea of grabbing guns from the freedom-minded Tea Party and MAGA Americans they despise.)  Well done, Senate Republicans!  Thanks for habitually rewarding red state voters with the vomitous stench of betrayal.  

If McConnell’s efforts to curtail the Second Amendment don’t prove him deeply unsuited to lead the New Republican Party during these uncertain times, consider a few additional reasons:

(1) Russia collusion hoaxer:

The Russia collusion hoax was Obama and Hillary’s baby (uh, gross), but Mitch gave it legitimacy by pretending that it deserved serious investigation.  Using Richard Burr’s Senate Select Committee on Intelligence to hide the FBI’s illicit spying operations against candidate Trump while backing the two-year Mueller Inquisition allowed McConnell to wield some power over President Trump (who had uniquely come into high office beholden to none).  By doing so, he helped divide the nation further than ever and betrayed all the Republican voters (a common theme here) who had succeeded in finally putting an America First candidate into the White House.  Imagine how much better off the country would have been had McConnell firmly rejected the Democrats’ absurd allegations that Donald Trump was a Russian spy.  Imagine how much more successful President Trump would have been in executing his MAGA policy agenda.  

(2) Backstabber extraordinaire:

No matter how many times President Trump went out of his way to keep McConnell happy (making his wife Transportation Secretary, choosing mutually agreeable Supreme Court nominees, acceding to some of McConnell’s unsavory anti-MAGA picks for elected office), the Establishment Republican never thought twice before stabbing him in the back after January 6.  It is rumored that McConnell was “exhilarated” with the media’s framing of that day as a “terrorist attack” and “insurrection” because he confidently believed it would “finally, totally discredit” Donald Trump and return control of the Republican Party back to the same Chamber of Commerce China appeasers who have sold out America’s labor force for decades.  Had polling not ultimately cowed him, he certainly would have joined Mitt Romney in voting for Trump’s second farcical impeachment.  McConnell could have defended the president’s right to freely express his opinion that the 2020 election was a sham, but that would have put him on the side of free speech and against his good friend, Joe Biden.

(3) Corporate stooge and anti-labor globalist:

I’m thrilled that the Republican Party is becoming the home of hardworking Americans.  I think the future of the party is Main Street, not Wall Street.  I think it’s a great time to fight back against “woke” corporations and the multinational institutions that push foreign interests at the expense of everyday Americans.  A self-sufficient America is a secure and prosperous America.  An America that prioritizes manufacturing, industry, and innovation over imports is an America with an expanding middle class.  An America that produces real products and not simply financial instruments traded by investment banks is an America with a real future and real wealth.  And Mitch is not suited for this transition.  He’s what most Republicans have come to despise: a politician who does the bidding of corporate lobbyists, not his constituents.  He’s a globalist in an America First party.

(4) War hawk with a China problem:

Biden’s Build Back Better boobery has unleashed inflation hell.  His unguarded borders are flooding America with millions of illegal immigrants.  Americans are suffering.  What does McConnell believe is the biggest problem on the planet today?  Ukraine.  After two decades of sending Americans to sandboxes in Asia and the Middle East to accomplish questionable objectives, now he and his war hawks desperately want to engage Russia on the battlefield.  I don’t think he or his acolytes realize how few Americans have their backs.  After pushing military adventurism abroad with little gain, they are not trusted.  Their new “woke” military is not trusted.  And nobody trusts McConnell’s obsession with Russia when he turns a blind eye to China’s genocide, market manipulation, and aggression.  As Peter Schweizer has well documented, McConnell’s family has made too much money from the Chinese Communist Party to know who his real friends are.  Should war with China become inevitable, McConnell is a liability.

(5) Election manipulator:

He helped get Alabama Democrat Doug Jones elected by attacking conservative Republicans Mo Brooks and Roy Moore.  He handed over senate seats in Arizona and Georgia by insisting that those states’ conservative bases back the unpalatable candidacies of Martha McSally and Kelly Loeffler over local favorites.  He’s forced Lisa Murkowski on America.  By interfering in state elections to tank the rise of more conservative candidates, McConnell has cost Republicans Senate seats time and again.  His my way or the highway approach to Senate elections has given Chuck Schumer a majority.  Even worse, the few true conservatives in the Senate have been left vastly outnumbered by moderate milquetoasts and Romney-like quislings.

(6) Party boss, not a leader:

Establishment Republicans bemoaned their inability to attract black and Hispanic voters for years.  You know who finally succeeded in appealing to a much broader voting coalition?  Right!  Donald Trump.  For all their underhanded moves to weaken his presidency and destroy his influence within the party, McConnell Republicans have benefited greatly from Trump’s direct appeal to voters disenchanted with the Democrats’ Marxist ways.  You know who doesn’t remotely appeal to that coalition?  Yep.  Mitch McConnell.  McConnell has always struck me as an anachronistic throwback to a nineteenth century party boss before the invention of radio or television.  He lacks gravitas, eloquence, charm, or even the inkling of an inspiring demeanor.  He rules through fear and punishment, and voters do not like or trust him.  

For that last reason alone, he should be dismissed as

One Response

  1. You know, we need to have it so the same old assholes don’t stay in politics for a lifetime. All of the long-lifers have outlived their usefulness, Mitch’s foot fits that shoe. Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Diane Feinstein, Joe Biden, and the list goes on forever. It used to not be that way. Then it got so damned expensive to run and get elected, well, those who got rich after getting elected to office, were the only ones that could afford to run. It’s ridiculous.
    Then you have the people like George Soros, who send multi-millions to those who wants to win, and because no one can compete monetarily, the people, (DAs who refuse to prosecute, and allows people to walk into the store and steal without consequence, and the summer rioters, etc).
    Our country is going to fall because the congressman, senators, representatives, and the whole lot of them have outlived their usefulness, but were so damned greedy while in office, want the money too much. So they cheat and steal and launder money through Ukraine, and sell plutonium to the Russians, and give away secrets to China. Why? Greedy bastards.
    We have been systematically sold out by the people we put into office to represent us. I don’t know who those people are representing. Not me, and I sure as hell didn’t vote them in, but someone did. That is unless you’ve seen 2000Mules, then you realize our votes have not counted for a long time. Trump was elected both times. Because people have gotten so sick of the same old BS that the people who pretend to represent us, yes, the same people that swore to uphold our Constitutions, and violate their oaths of office daily, have shown their true colors.
    The whole lot of them are turn coats. Everyone looking to get elected, make all these promises, and tell us what we want to hear, then get there, stay there, and have no intentions on doing what we want, but we pay their salaries, at least part of it. The rest they get from China, Russia, Ukraine.
    You don’t really think that they voted to send that $44 Billion (with a B) to Ukrained for nothing do you? The agreement had been that Ukraine would remain a non-NATO country, a buffer so that NATO would not be on Russia’s doorstep. Well like all the treaties, all the agreements, everything that America has ever promised and swore they would not do, like always, they lied. Then when NATO was taking Ukraine under its control, things fell apart. Most people don’t know that Russia is getting rid of Nazi-ism. Part of Ukraine were Nazis. Every country except America, Britain, and a couple of others, had voted to get rid of Nazi-ism. Nope not us. That should have told a lot of people something.
    But, like every other agreement, we violated. Every treaty with the Native Americans, all through time, even today, US has violated every agreement. Sometimes the Americans knew it, sometimes they didn’t. If Americans don’t like whoever is running a country, we waltz in, kill them, and replace them with whoever we want in power. We have bullied, lied and cheated all the other countries for all of time.
    And the American people are gullible as hell. They believe everything they’re told. Just look at the vaccines situation. Yes master, I will get my shots. So many people kill over due to the shots, but yes master, I will get more shots. Now they are giving them to 6 month old and up.
    But sidetracked I got.

    “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false” CIA director Casey said that. And it has come to that time. Our history has been a farce, what we are told about current times is a farce, and we swallow everything they tell us hook, line and sinker.

    Another CIA Director said: “The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”~ William Colby. And it was true then, and its true now. Everything that happens in this country has been carefully planned and executed. If they want to tell us lies, the news media lies. They lie all the time. People need to get over themselves. We are fixing to lose all our asses.
    All this BS about doing away with the first and second amendments. It’s Nazi Germany all over again. You can’t say anything about anyone, you can’t go where you want to go, you can’t do what you want to do. We would not comply and act the way they wanted, so they stuck Biden in there. What is going to happen with no fossil fuels? And their answer is to buy an electric car. Right and who can afford these electric cars, when they have crashed the economy?
    They have been foreclosing on people left and right since 2004-06, and yes they slowed it down, but how many people paid their mortgage on time while COVID lockdown was on? How many people decided not to make their payments. They said all would be forgiven, but now, 2.5 years later the foreclosures are beginning again.
    If you have no home, and have no car, because there is no longer any gas, and Bill Gates and George Soros own all the farmland. What do you think will happen?

    SHEEPLE AWAKEN, WE DON’T HAVE LONG NOW!
