Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces he is “especially proud” of passage for his amendments requiring the U.S. military to continue operations in Afghanistan and Syria:
The bill passed 77-yea, 23-nea. [Vote Tally Here] The only Republican who voted against perpetual war in the middle east and supported President Trump was Rand Paul.
Every time this happens victims of battered conservative syndrome start a process of reconciling the reason for their abuse by excusing and justifying their abuser, Mitch McConnell.
Let’s be clear, CTH has watched this process, on a very granular level, for well over a decade; specifically about Senator McConnell. Mitch McConnell doesn’t give a hoot what any voter, constituent, or member of the national electorate thinks about his action. He is entirely unfazed and bound to a power ideology that sets him above all considerations.
Senator Mitch McConnell, just like all of the power brokers within the DC beltway, views himself as your ruler. Until we purposefully accept the nature of this abusive relationship nothing will change, ever. Reminder…
Senate Leader Mitch McConnell has one major career alliance that has been unbroken and unchanged for well over two decades. That alliance is with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and specifically with CoC President Tom Donohue.
[SEE HERE and SEE HERE].
Mitch McConnell is stealthily working against the efforts of President Donald Trump. The effort is to support his primary Wall Street financial benefactor, Donohue. However, Mitch McConnell cannot directly be connected to underhanded efforts against President Trump because it would lead to: (A) questions about a confrontation; and (B) public exposure. [ex. think about how McConnell is blocking President Trump from recess appointments]
To remind ourselves how Minority and Majority Senator McConnell took down the threat of the Tea Party revisit these old articles: CNN Part Iand CNN Part II both showcase how McConnell works. Then do some research on how McConnell worked with Haley Barbour in Mississippi [SEE HERE].
Yes, Democrats are the opponents. However, the far more urgent MAGA enemy is Mitch McConnell….
Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces he is especially proud of passage for his amendments requiring the U.S. military to continue operations in Afghanistan and Syria:
What a back-stabbing POS.
He’s on Fox News right now, stabbing him in the back.
Bushes, Pelosi, McConnell, others, I’m sure, are paid well to let opiods into our country. They aren’t paying now for their evil, but...
Hey Mitch, ten words or less: What exactly is our “ongoing mission is Syria and Afghanistan”?
All of a sudden this SOB has a backbone. 8 years of kissing Barry’s a** then sticking it to a president in his own party.
The corporate donors are happy that’s all that matters.
I can’t imagine the type of “human” that would say something like that.
Every Gull Dam one of us knows full well how to stop this crap.
Vote a good one in? OK, then that good one gets spoiled after he/she enters the cesspool.
“it’s good for my donors who make weapons of war”
he won’t say it, but that’s what he would say.
It’s a good thing the Democrats have Occasionally-Coherent.
As the Republican party encapsulates what Democrats are today, she will lead the Dems down the road to their destiny, the US Communist Party.
At least we will still have two political parties, but they’ll both be left of center.
I am not officially proud of you Mitch regarding this betrayal of POTUS. I guess elections have been rigged for so long that you GOPe have gotten out of the habit of answering to your constituents. Bad move. Bad move.
Sorry, Mitch, old boy,! You can’t usurp power from the Commander in Chief without amending the Constitution. Even though you may have gotten a bunch of votes in the Senate, Constitutional amendments are just a tad more complicated.
Thanks for being clear with your intentions though, Mitch.
Rand Paul in a lot of ways is really the only good senator we have.
And while you're at it Mitch, send your grandkids over there to fight it along with the rest.
Mitch, you reek of piss and death.
Alison Grimes was the lesser evil.
I have been a huge supporter of the GWOT, but I now question whether it's worth the continuing physical and emotional toll on the troops and their families.
Trump has to take a page out of the Obama book and conduct the foreign policy he deems appropriate regardless of Congress. He is Commander in Chief . He can withdraw troops or order the Army Corp of Engineers to build a wall. BTW. If he fails for whatever reason to build the physical wall, he will never win reelection.
