McConnell Caves Again

Having thrown away what little leverage the Republican Party has in this one-party government, GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) compounded his felony by rolling over once again in the face of Democratic efforts to raise the debt limit with no conditions attached.

Democrats, of course, can raise the limit anytime they want because they would not need a filibuster proof majority for a budget bill under the Byrd Rule. But they want to share the blame for doing so with Republicans, so they won’t raise the debt limit alone.

And, obliging as ever, McConnell caved in and agreed to let them do it covered by a fig leaf of bipartisanship. He previously bailed the Democrats out over the summer and vowed not to do so again, but he can’t help himself and he rolled over again.

The Republicans could have exacted any number of commitments in return for their votes. They should have asked for an additional cut of $1 trillion in the Build Back America package. They could have insisted that the package have no language on immigration. For all their wails of outrage at the unilateral, arrogant Democratic refusal to consult them, McConnell led his troops in a total surrender — again.

Why don’t he and Manchin both switch parties and put their respective party establishments out of their agony?

In Mitch McConnell’s Head, The Band Plays On

An MSN headline reads: “McConnell’s next chapter: Guiding the post-Trump GOP”. The leftist media is clueless. The vast majority of people who support McConnell’s Republican Party DO NOT WANT MCCONNELL. He is part of The Swamp. He, and others like him, are the reason Donald Trump won the Republican nomination and the presidency in the first place. Trump was ousted from office, partly because of fraud and partly because of expedient abandonment by corrupt, detestable individuals like McConnell who stand for absolutely nothing, who seem never to go away and who remain as clueless as ever about what’s happening in America.

I can’t imagine how someone would care about a rotten career politician like Mitch McConnell and, at the same time, have any problem with the occupation of Democrats who have overtaken the former American republic. McConnell is on the sinking Titanic, a murder-suicide against liberty that the insane and overtly evil Democrats are ensuring, while McConnell is saying, “OK, let’s get back to our voyage.” It’s not simply maddening; it’s sheer madness. I have worked in psychiatric hosptials as a mental health professional. I have literally had conversations with schizophrenics in psychosis. NOTHING I ever encountered matches the absurd, darkly hilarious insanity, of what’s happening in our Imperial City. If these are the people now in charge, we are in much greater trouble than most of us yet realize.

In the capital of the former American republic, evil and depravity reign supreme. Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, AOC, “The Squad” — these almost inhuman ghouls are now determining the post-freedom reality for millions of people if not billions, since the fate of planet Earth has always depended on the fate of freedom in America, since it was founded.

In the seat of power of the once meaningful and now utterly hollow Republican Party, the band plays on … inside Mitch McConnell’s head.
