Mitch McConnell Shivved Us All In The Back

Mitch McConnell. Senior Senator from Kentucky and currently Minority Leader, has always been problematic for me. He bends with the political winds. He is squishy. And, with his wife, Elaine Chao, always in Republican Administrations from Reagan to Trump, his tentacles are way too deep into the Swamp. On January 19, 2021, he ensured that he will be despised until the end of time, when he shivved us all in the back.

We are all well aware of the Capitol breach on January 6, 2021. A small group of filthy cretins burst into the Capitol building, destroyed our property, and caused the deaths of five people. The breach took place during a Trump “Stop the Steal” rally. Democraps were quick to seize on this opportunity to immediately call for a second impeachment of President Trump. Mitch McConnell put out a fairly balanced Tweet following the Capitol breach.

Mitch is right. There were shocking failures in the security protocols by the security and leadership at the Capitol. In 2019, the forces managed to arrest 300 protesters during the Kavanaugh hearings. I could be way off base, but the crowd on January 6 looked to be about the same size. The Trump rally was well-known. If I were a person who believed in conspiracies I would think this was an on purpose. But, I am not a tin-foil girl so I am going with incompetent.

I watched most of the speeches on January 6. Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump, Jr. may have gone too far with their comments. But, neither they nor President Trump incited an insurrection. All the majority of the 100,000 plus rally goers wanted was for an audit (not a recount; garbage in, garbage out) of the vote. There was no insurrection. A couple hundred criminals caused this ruckus. This was a planned in advance riot, complete with a BLM activist. This could in no way be laid at the door of Donald Trump.

Why did Mitch McConnell make this speech in the well of the Senate on January 19?

These words by Mitch are lies:

“The mob was fed lies,” McConnell said. “They were provoked by the president and other powerful people, and they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government which they did not like.”

Yes, those words by McConnell were a shiv in the back of every Republican who ever voted so.

Michael Goodwin wrote in the NY Post:

Et tu, Mitch McConnell?

Just when Washington has a chance to turn the page, fresh signs emerged Tuesday that the past is not yet past. It is almost certain now that the Senate will hold an impeachment trial of President Trump next week.

Even worse, it looks probable he will be convicted of a single charge stemming from the Capitol invasion.

The history-making event got the green light from McConnell (R-Ky.) on his last day as Senate majority leader.

What changed between January 7 when Mitch McConnell wrote a balanced note and January 19 when he shivved us all and set Donald Trump up for Impeachment 2, the unConstitutional Sequel?

The GOP lost the two Georgia Senate races and McConnell lost the title Majority Leader. Mitch blames Donald Trump and the Swamp kills those they perceive as weakened. Mitch wasn’t going to take responsibility. Mitch wasn’t going to look at the fact that the House gained seats. He wasn’t going to blame David Perdue for having the chutzpah to blow off the debate with Jon Ossoff. He wasn’t going to blame Kelly Loeffler for showing up to rallies looking like LL Bean Barbie. No, Mitch blamed Trump. In Mitch’s mind, Trump deserves to be impeached for Mitch losing the Majority. Mitch need only look in the mirror.

Mitch McConnel found our bottom rib and made an upward motion with the shiv, from the back, into our kidney. Mitch and his ilk are the cause of our failures. Spineless Republicans who prefer being in the minority to leading and making hard decisions. Trump showed us the way. We won’t go back. It’s almost tempting to move to Kentucky to vote against Mitch. I am going to stay in Tennessee to vote against Marsha Blackburn.

    Me: Make Mitch McConnell a real turtle and leave him in a dry kiddie pool in rural Kentucky on the hottest day of the summer and his owner is Sid from Toy Story.

    Genie: Ok, that one’s on me. You still have three wishes.

      You’re in a desert, walking along in the sand when all of a sudden you look downand see a Mitch-tortoise, It’s crawling toward you. You reach down and you flip the Mitch-tortoise over on its back. The Mitch-tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over but it can’t. Not without your help. But you’re not helping. I mean you’re not helping! Why is that?

  • John Wilson says:

    Well said! And now citizen Trump has to prevail in the senate with Mitch the weasel lurking. Will 16 republican senators follow the turtle? My bet is there are five counting Mitch and nobody else. Heck i bet some democrats vote against it too.

  • Lloyd says:

    Mitch is just another rat who wishes to depart a sinking ship. So much for loyalty!

  • Inigo Montoya says:

    “Spineless Republicans who prefer being in the minority to leading and making hard decisions.”
    (added)”… and don’t want some outsider actually doing something about border security, vacating disadvantageous diplomatic agreements (see: Paris Climate, Iran Nuclear), and not bowing to the whim of European socialists and Chinese strongmen.

    “Trump showed us the way. We won’t go back.”
    As much as I hate the thought of a GOP civil war or, God help us, a third party, I just cannot abide a GOP that rolls back the clock four years and shrivels back into the party of Bush.

    Good article…BTW – what has Senator Blackburn done to get you so rankled?

  • Mimi says:

    They didn’t ’cause the death of 5 people’ and they (most of them) weren’t ‘filthy cretins’.
    Agreed on Mitch.

    Oh, my. That was a short article. Have fun, I know I will.

    Elsewhere.

    “comments may have gone too far.”

    Tell that to my family’s KIA from the War for Independence.

  • Aaron says:

    The Liver. He shived us in the liver, not the kidney.

    Is Marcia‘s folding like a chair, her not standing up to defend Trump? Or did she take it a step further and actually speak against Trump? Although, I agree, refusing to defend Trump is unforgivable. And by Trump I mean, all of us liberty loving Americans.

  • Rather Not Say says:

    The fault is on Republicans who turned their back on McConnell…his has been very clearly, for a very long time, a swamp creature. That was obvious to anyone paying attention well before Trump.

    So called ‘conservatives’ allowed someone fundamentally not conservative, not a nationalist, not America First but an inside beltway institutional power player selling out America for profit, to call the shots. Then act surprised when the shots he calls are all beltway power moves?

    McConnell populated the bench with federalist type judges who, thought better than the marxists would send, are clearly much more ‘unlimited federal power’ friendly than a true conservative or true populist. McConnell controlled who Trump was ‘allowed’ to nominate, and made sure they were Institutaional power first…which is why none of even Trump’s nominees would here his cases. They were loyal to the man who put them there….McConnell.

  • Jkl says:

    Goodwin?
    He blamed Trump too

  • Milwaukee says:

    Perhaps, if you please, could fill us in with details. You mentioned five deaths. Ashli was one, the Capitol Police officer was the second, who were the other three, and what are their details? As for the officer, lots of details are missing. Thanks.

  • Art Deco says:

    They didn’t ’cause the deaths of five people’. One person had a heart attack, one had a stroke, one succumbed to some mix of accident and cardiac event, and in one case (Ofc. Brian Sicknick) we do not know because no autopsy report has been released. The protesters did not cause the death of Ashli Babbitt. A Capitol Police officer fired at random into a scrum of people separated from him by a heavy door (and there’s scant indication that she was climbing through the window frame at the time; she was just there).

  • Art Deco says:

    He’s always been a vacuous careerist, and long so steeped in gross Capitol Hill culture he can understand no viewpoint outside of it. Kentucky Republicans should have retired him in 2014 and Senate Republicans should have had in place rotation-in-office rules requiring that he exit the floor leader’s post in 2017 (the only Republican floor leaders in the last century whose tenure equals or exceeds his have been Joseph Martin (1939-59) and Robert Michel (1981-95), both sitting in the House). If the Senate Republican caucus had had any sense and any spine, he’d have stood down this year rather than face certain defeat in the caucus).

  • Art Deco says:

    Note the employment histories of the two Republican floor leaders and the two whips.

    1. Kevin McCarthy and John Thune have, since they were in their early 20s, held legislative staff positions, staff positions with political NGO, and elective office without interruption.

    2. Steve Scalice does not volunteer how he earned a living between age 22 and age 32. (He’s been in politics ever since).

    3. Mitch McConnell had a modest run of years as an associate in a private law firm (1970-75). He landed his first political job in 1967 (legislative aide in Congress) and has held elective office without interruption since 1977.

    They have the employment histories of Democratic pols. . Get rid of all of them.

  • Bucky says:

    Mitch McConnell – Blue Pill Republican.

  • Don't Tread says:

    I think you’re wrong about McConnell. Let me preface my comments by saying that although Trump wasn’t my first choice, I voted for him twice, and I think the next four years will be disastrous for the country.

    Trump, though, bears much of the responsibility for the difficulties of the next years. I agree that there were many irregularities in the election, but after two weeks it should have been clear to him that there was no practical way forward that ended up with him being reelected. The battle for election integrity should have been fought vigorously before the election. As John Hinderaker put in his excellent Jan 5 column over at Power Line – “To the extent that Democrats committed or enabled voter fraud, they have done so successfully”

    If Trump had accepted this unpleasant reality, conceded the election, and worked vigorously to elect one of the two Georgia senators, we would be in a much better position now, and indeed a better position to campaign for electoral integrity going forward. Instead he lead his team into a cul-de-sac resulting in Democratic control of the Senate.

    Whatever you think of the GOP, even if you think they are too soft, full of RINOs, etc.., from a conservative point of view it would be far far better to have maintained a Senate check on the worst excesses of the left going forward. McConnell is angry and rightly so.

  • daniel says:

    Blackburn and Hagerty both made convincing videos just a day or two before the incident saying they would vote to challenge the electoral votes.
    Then they suddenly switched.
    Tennesseans don’t like backstabbers.
    Be gone both of you!

  • tweell says:

    Silly wabbit. Has the last ‘election’ taught you nothing? Those who vote decide nothing. Those that count the vote decide everything.

  • emdfl says:

    His latest payoff from the CCP through his handler-wife was probably a little late, so he had time to go over the script he was given before he got the check.

  • Janet says:

    Kentucky voters were screwed—Mitch McConnell or Any McGrath. I think I’ll do some bipartisan bridge building and join the leftists the next time they do protest in front of McConnell’s house.
