Is Cocaine Mitch Abandoning His Homies?
I was tickled when Mitch McConnell’s campaign turned the derogatory “Cocaine Mitch” slander into a successful fund-raising effort t-shirt for the “Team Mitch Cartel Member.” Likewise, McConnell agreed that he was the Grim Reaper when it came to socialist schemes trying to make their way through the Senate. But lately, he’s been less than clever, leaving the conservative high road for middle-of-the-road politics.
The results of this latest election truly shocked and surprised all of us, though in hindsight what other recourse did Democrats have? They lied to the American people, Congress, the FBI, the intelligence agencies, the FISA court, Mueller’s task force, and most likely themselves trying to convince themselves that they’d never be found out. They made fools of themselves and had only electoral deceit and fraud to fall back on to get the win in 2020. Not just at the top of the ticket, either; this corruption goes right to the bone.
Now is the time for McConnell to work his magic throughout the Republican party, at federal and state levels. His cartel has his back and is counting on him to ensure that the 2022 elections are truly legitimate and fair. He simply can’t do that while sauntering the halls of Congress arm-in-arm with the beneficiaries of electoral theft.
Now is not the time for the former Majority Leader to walk away from his posse, nor to turn his reaper’s scythe on us. Since his recent statements about Trump, which upset many of us, he’s surely had time to review the records and come to the only honorable and defensible conclusion.
President Trump called for us to stand with him against the steal. He did not call for violence or insurrection. He asked us to make our displeasure known. A mass of patriotic humanity did so simply by gathering. While we were gathered and Trump was still speaking, the troublemakers, obviously running the gamut of America’s political spectrum, took it upon themselves to engage in unacceptable violence against a federal building and the Capitol Police force.
Yes, Mitch lost the prime Senate position, for now. But if he’ll chill out, we’ll do our best to deliver it for him again in 2022. Conservatives and liberals alike are already lining up against Joe Biden. We don’t like it that his abuse of the Executive Order process is neutering our elected Congress.
No self-respecting conservative should join hands with the likes of the schoolyard bully Senator Schumer to “share power.” None should forget his behavior during the Kavanaugh hearings; his accusations against Congressman Nunes during the Mueller debacle; and his lies about President Trump and Congressman McCarthy to AIPAC. Sharing a ride with a scorpion is never a safe bet.
Remember who signed the check, that paid for the dossier, that beguiled the courts, that issued the warrants, that took down the people, that paid the price, that failed, in the end, to burn down the house that Trump built. In addition to Hillary’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee signed the check.
Schumer is one of the most senior Democrats in the country and would surely have been in on the decision to move forward in that way. One cannot “share” power with the power-hungry. Every good soul and true knows that only one hand can wear and wield the ring of power. Given the current state of affairs that hand will not be Senator McConnell’s, no matter what assurances he receives, as long as the Senate is evenly divided and the Dems occupy the White House.
Please, Senator McConnell, do not entrust our future to the Democrats, particularly those who stood by silently as others among them, most notably Congressman Schiff, lied to the American people day in and day out for years saying “I have the evidence.” The only evidence Schiff had was what eventually came out – all the collusion and corruption was on the part of the Democrats in an unsuccessful bid to remove a duly elected President from office. Can anyone believe that any of them were unaware of this?
Senator Schumer and all his partisan colleagues can be counted on to be steadfast in their support for their party’s platform – a platform with clearly stated goals that can only be attained by abolishing the Senate filibuster. That would likely ensure one-party rule, rather than governance, of our fair country, and its ultimate ruination.
The Democrat’s platform goals include statehood for Washington, D.C. I suggest, instead, that we complete the retrocession and return the rest of the city to Maryland. That gives the residents of the city a governor, a state legislature, Senators, and Representatives, and would not upset the current racial and political balance.
Democrats are now calling for statehood for Puerto Rico, though the platform limits itself to bailing out the island after the devastating hurricanes. They make no mention, however, of the gross corruption, fraud, and diversion of assistance the taxpayers already provided. How about a side of justice with those duplicative funds?
Democrats intend to expand US-funded abortion services to the entire world and to mandate them throughout our own country, regardless of our constitutionally acknowledged and guaranteed freedoms. They plan to restructure the federal court system from the Supremes on down. They want to turn the Postal Service into a service-fee free federal bank and create another federally managed infrastructure bank.
Democrats are pledged to abolish private charter schools and provide free college education, including for illegal immigrants. The first would devastate quality education in many inner cities, and the second would bankrupt America, and further indoctrinate its young people.
Team Mitch’s cartel delighted in McConnell’s delicious ripostes and supported him in his leadership of the Senate and in his campaign for his current term. We have admired and respected him. We hope he does us the courtesy of not abandoning us to retain some fraction of leadership power for a short time. For as much we like Mitch, we love Trump. Mitch, don’t take your love to town.
UPDATE: If Senator McConnell was relying on the word of Senator Manchin to prevent the abolition of the filibuster and packing the Supreme Court, let’s hope he is now well disabused of that trust. Just look at what Manchin did to energy independence for North America and reliable cleaner energy to replace coal, as well as the damage to thousands of American and Canadian workers, their families, their communities, their ancillary businesses, and their workers, families, and communities. A flip-flopper such as this is not a firm foundation upon which to build bi-partisanship.
