    After losing in this past November's midterm election for the House, former fighter pilot Amy McGrath, a Kentucky Democrat, is being propped up by fundraising groups to take on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in 2020, according to The Hill.

  • GOP GIVES UP ON REPEALING OBAMACARE; They claim to have more important things to do.

    Republican lawmakers have made it clear they have no intention of repealing Obamacare in the current Congress. Republicans in the nation’s top lawmaking body have never really wanted to get rid of Obamacare. They would prefer to present the program, which David Horowitz correctly describes as “the greatest assault on individual freedom and individual choice in our lifetimes,” as a villain and whip up sentiment against it and run against it every election. They view Obamacare as good for the business of politics. They may chip away at it from time to time or tinker with it at the margins,...

    Tucker Carlson asked Fox Business host Lou Dobbs about why the Republican leadership appear to be unconcerned with fulfilling President Trump's campaign promises, specifically the border wall. Carlson said that Trump's top campaign priority that allowed him to defeat 16 Republicans and Hillary Clinton was the promise to "build that wall" on the southern border and strengthen immigration policies. Dobbs blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after the Kentucky Republican spoke "dismissively" about the urgency to build the wall. In a Louisville radio interview, McConnell said the funding for the wall would "probably" not happen before the midterm elections.

    This weekend on WHAS Radio, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said border wall funding would “probably” have to wait until after midterms. Sunday President Donald Trump’s tweet threatening a government shutdown if a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border was not funded. When asked if wall funding would have to wait until after the midterms, McConnell said, “Probably and that’s something we do have a disagreement on.” When asked about a government shutdown McConnell said, “No, that’s not going to happen.”
  • Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell Stick It to Trump – Will Not Fund Border Wall Funding Bill

    Never-Trump Republican leaders Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters this week they will not fund the Trump Border Wall in the upcoming spending bill. Ryan and McConnell passed a record $1.3 trillion spending bill in March. The spending bill funded Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities but NOT the Trump border wall. And now the Republican Party leaders are going to stick it to President Trump and his voters once again. They’re not going to fund the border wall in September. The Daily Caller reported: During a radio interview with WHAS on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch...
  • Shameful: McConnell Confirmed Only 3 Trump Judges in 2 Weeks

    For months, we have worked with tens of thousands of you to force Congress to cancel the August recess. The argument was simple: Congress had not earned a vacation. With hundreds of bills and nominations stalled, we bombarded Congress with millions of FaxBlasts threatening to remove any Congressman or Senator who took their vacation. We forced Mitch McConnell to cave. He cancelled practically all of the August recess and ordered Congress to start working for their constituents. But after the press conference ended, McConnell went on with business as usual. He sent Congress on a three day weekend and is...

    enate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) signaled on Tuesday that he isn't ready, yet, to change the rules to speed up votes on President Trump's nominees. Asked if he would give the proposal a vote, and if he was willing to go "nuclear" to implement the change, the tightlipped GOP leader said, "We'll see." "We continue to discuss whether that will be necessary. An easier way to deal with all this, however, would be to have greater cooperation and the cooperation has picked up some this year," McConnell told reporters.

    A group of 16 Republican senators are sending Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a serious message Friday: It is time to work full weeks, confirm the president’s nominees and stop wasting precious time while Republicans hold both chambers of Congress and the White House. Sen. David Perdue of Georgia is leading the charge, calling on McConnell to realize there are only 67 working days left in the 2018 fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30. The coalition of Republican senators are urging McConnell to make the Senate work through Friday and on some weekends (senators typically go home to their districts...
  • Remember, McConnell is as responsible as Obama and Kerry for the failed Iran Deal

    Mitch McConnell, as Majority Leader of the Senate, twisted the Treaty provision of the Constitution on its head to GET THAT DEAL THROUGH! McConnell CREATED the provision whereby two-thirds of the Senate would need to DISSAPROVE of the deal in order to PREVENT the deal from becoming effective. Instead of the Constitutional provision whereby two-thirds of the Senate would need to APPROVE of a treaty before it could become effective. Pretzel McConnell!! Whatever it took to help Obama and his minions.

    GOP infighting broke out again Monday as West Virginia Republican Senate candidate Don Blankenship compared Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to a “Swamp captain” and “the Russians.” As Politico reports, Blankenship, who owns a lot of coal in the state, was incarcerated for a year after a 2010 explosion in one of his mines and the GOP establishment has not embraced his Senate candidacy — reportedly campaigning against Blankenship with a series of attack ads purchased by a political action committee (PAC) named Mountain Family PAC. Blankenship defines his war as one with McConnell, whom he encourages to stay in...

    "All you need to know why this was a bad bill is to look at the roll call," a long-time Republican lobbyist emailed me Saturday, referring to the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending law. Of course, he's right. President Donald Trump reluctantly signed the $1.3 trillion spending bill Friday, but a careful review of the crucial Senate vote shows it was Democratic members, not Republicans, that actually passed the bill. In another major embarrassment to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, his own Republican caucus opposed the very bill he negotiated. The omnibus bill passed the Senate by a vote of 65...

    “The progressive Republicans have won. The progressive Democrats have won.” “Where’s Mitch McConnell?” LevinTV host Mark Levin asked on his radio program after President Trump signed Congress’ $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill on Friday. “Has anybody seen or heard from Mitch McConnell? I mean, he’s the guy behind the scenes. He’s the Svengali who put all this together. He’s the good-for-nothing, big-spending, deal-cutting, self-serving phony politician who put this all together behind closed doors and threatens his colleagues in the Senate should they dare to challenge him or question him.” Levin criticized McConnell, the rest of Congress, and the president...
  • Peter Schweizer Explains How China Purchased U.S. Congress as a Trade Strategy…

    03/21/2018 9:45:51 PM PDT · by bitt · 38 replies
    A timely book by Peter Schweizer, “Secret Empires”, explains how Chinese companies purchased U.S. politicians to gain trade advantages. When you understand this process, you better understand why those same politicians today are against the Trump trade policy that is antithetical to their purchased interests. Reminder: U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue is warning President Trump not to take any trade action against China or he will unleash his purchased control agents within congress and financial media to destroy his presidency. Allow me to re-emphasize: All opposition to President Trump stems from the underlying financial and economic policy. All...

    A new interview with Mitch McConnell this week showed the first cracks in the wall of his optimism about the midterms. While not going down a path of gloom and doom, he no longer sounds positive of breaking a long-standing trend of the party in power losing ground in such scenarios. He’s not coming out and saying the GOP’s majorities in both chambers are toast, but he seems to think they’ll be losing seats. (The Hill) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says in a new interview that he expects to see GOP majorities in the House and Senate shrink...

    Statement by President Donald J. Trump on the Senate’s Failure to Advance the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection ActRecently, when I addressed the 45th annual March for Life, I called on the Senate to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, important legislation that would protect our most vulnerable. It is disappointing that despite support from a bipartisan majority of U.S. Senators, this bill was blocked from further consideration. Scientific studies have demonstrated that babies in the womb feel pain at twenty weeks. The vote by the Senate rejects scientific fact and puts the United States out of the mainstream in...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell used a holiday season press conference Friday to deliver a lump of coal to Steve Bannon, mocking the former White House adviser’s “political genius” for costing Republicans an Alabama Senate seat. McConnell, R-Ky., made the remark 10 days after the Bannon-backed Roy Moore lost a special election to Doug Jones, giving Democrats their first victory in an Alabama Senate race in a quarter century. Moore faced multiple allegations of improper conduct with teenagers decades ago and touted extremist views that repelled many women and minorities. “The political genius on display, throwing away a seat in...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says entitlement reform is not on the agenda in 2018, despite what Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and senior Trump administration officials say. McConnell, speaking at an event sponsored by Axios on Thursday, said the lack of Democratic support for entitlement reform makes it highly unlikely that it will move through the Senate in an election year. “I think the Democrats are not going to be interested in entitlement reform so I would not expect to see that on the agenda,” McConnell said. He said that bipartisan immigration and banking-reform legislation are much more likely...

    enate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested Tuesday he will only bring an immigration bill to the Senate floor if it matches President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. The proposed re-alignment with Trump and his populist supporters was included in a Wednesday statement by McConnell, and undercut retiring GOP Sen. Jeff Flake’s claim on early Wednesday that McConnell had agreed to an amnesty vote in January.
