The leaders of several conservative groups called Wednesday for Mitch McConnell to step down as Senate majority leader, arguing the Kentucky Republican and the rest of his team should be ousted from their posts because they have not implemented the conservative agenda they promised.

“We call on all five members of the GOP Senate leadership to step down, or for their caucus to remove them as soon as possible,” Ken Cuccinelli, the former attorney general of Virginia who now leads the Senate Conservatives Fund, said at a Wednesday press conference on Capitol Hill.

Breaking because this is the first I have heard of this.

Maybe Breitbart has something, and I will check that.

Sorry if this is not Breaking

It won’t happen. Turtle is the (stealth) appointed leader of the Swamp resistance to Trump. He’s on a mission, but he cannot be too overt about it lest the bumpkins back home take notice.

Theater, so when this “fails”, Big Media can tell us that McConnell schooled the Trump supporters, SO THERE!

Sounded good until I saw loser Ken Cuccinelli name pop up. He has zero credibility. Another wasted effort that McConnell will surely ignore.

200 bills are sitting on McConnell's desk that he received from the House. Just sitting there waiting to be worked in the Senate.

Yeah, he needs to go.

Breitbart had headline but no other information I could find.

But there a number other INTERESTING breaking articles...

Virginia Democrats are in Panic Mode.

There is the Kurtz/FoxNews article about NBC story being tanked. There was an exchange between two NBC reporters on this -- Ronan Farrow (who wrote story tanked) and Rachel Maddow.

Do you think FoxNews story is breaking? Why have we not heard more about this? Maybe Fox is kicking rear ends bigtime...

Groups pushing for OUSTER have Tea Party ties.

From the article, they are:

FreedomWorks, the Tea Party Patriots and For America.

Yes, Mitch should step down as leader because he is not leading.

He is following the direction of the swamp-creature, bottom-feeder anti-Trumpers....some of whom call themselves “conservatives”. He needs to convert to a Trumpist or quit. The people spoke, the turdle needs to be poked.

Very interesting posted on Freerepublic not long ago about Democrats panicking in Virginia:

It is interesting to note that just a few years ago ‘Dirty Harry’ from NV was taking any bill from the R controlled House and tossing it into a desk drawer. That is very effective technique to use when one wants to thwart the will of the people.

With all the rules, guidelines and traditions manufactured by generations of Senators for use in Senatorial procedures, there is apparently no rule that forces McConnell to, in a timely manner, bring a bill to the floor for debate.

Considering the arrogance and disdain often on display by our ‘leaders’, it may be worth the time to remind them that while the voting booth is the proscribed and civil way to remove them from their office, it is not the only way.
