    It’s on! Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed Steve Bannon on Monday during his joint press conference with President Donald Trump. McConnell has failed to pass ANY significant legislation since President Trump entered office in January.Nothing!   Former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon announced his plans to replace the deadbeat Republicans who trash President Trump and stall the conservative-populist agenda in Washington DC. Last week Steve Bannon warned the GOP elites, ” We’re going to cut off the oxygen to Mitch McConnell.” McConnell didn’t like that.Today McConnell lashed out at Steve Bannon for going after GOP senate seats in...

    Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell walked back his announced intentionto eliminate a longtime tool of bipartisanship in the Senate by doing away with blue slips something that Republicans used and abused in orderto block former President Barack Obamas judicial nominees during his time in office. McConnell hadtold The Weekly Standard on Tuesday that he planned on removing the importance of blue slips, rendering them as a symbolic gesture as opposed to a procedural mechanism. But McConnell's spokesman, Don Stewart, told HuffPoston Wednesday that the Republican Party did not intend on eliminating blue slips. The blue slip is not a rule...

    Our political establishment always eagerly supports reform as long as it is no more than theater meant to fool the voters, an entirely phony exercise. In the early 1990s, I held in my hand a small-run book, Lip Service, by Richard Viguerie, which highlighted the attempts of Republican leaders to fool conservatives. Finally, after years of conservatives ignoring the obvious need, Steve Bannon, former Trump White House adviser and Breitbart editor, is launching a sustained war to eject Democrats pretending to be Republicans and elect actual, genuine Republicans to the U.S. Congress. Our country is lost without this. But many...

    The GOP leader may not personally be a fan of blue slips, but he’s not getting rid of them, says his spokesman. WASHINGTON ― Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will continue to honor the blue slip rule ― an arcane but hugely consequential Senate tradition that lets lawmakers block a president’s judicial nominees from their home states ― even though a news article suggested he would get rid of it, his spokesman said. The Weekly Standard reported Wednesday that McConnell said in an interview that Democrats would no longer be allowed to use the rule to deny some of...
  • Group says McConnell 'wasted millions' against Moore

    A group that backed Republican Roy Moore in Alabamas contentious U.S. Senate primary said a super PAC aligned with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wasted millions trying to defeat Moore. The Senate Leadership Fund spent $9 million in the race on behalf of Sen. Luther Strange. Ed Rollins, lead strategist for the Great America PAC backing Moore, said the Senate Leadership Fund can atone for this mistake by providing Moore with the same level of financial support as he faces Democrat Doug Jones in the general election.

    Judge Roy Moores substantial defeat of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnells handpicked, well-financed candidate, Big Luther Strange in the Alabama Republican Senate Primary is a political earthquake. It shows that the political and cultural tide that propelled Donald Trump past 16 primary opponents and Hillary Clinton into the White House is still running strong. They present a near-perfect symmetry of cause and effect: McConnells brand of timid, ineffectual leadership, on the one hand, leads to a devastating electoral rebuke on the other. Voters served noticeagainthat unprincipled, do-nothing Republicans who are more at home in opposition than in power are unneeded...

    Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore easily won yesterdays GOP primary in his home state, beating interim senator Luther Strange a 55-45 margin. Strange, a former state attorney general, had been the Republican establishments occupant in the seat since Jeff Sessions was appointed by President Trump to become Attorney General, where he is busy indicting college basketball coaches while ignoring the criminal behavior of a wide variety of Obama Administration officials and former FBI directors. Going into the primary, an increasingly desperate GOP establishment issued stern warnings, telling voters to vote for their preferred milquetoast candidate because, well, he...

    Sources are reporting on an email letter focused on unseating Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sent by Senate Conservatives Action, a political action committee. The letter was signed by the former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccineli, who is now president of the PAC. NBC reported that political operative, pundit, and author Roger Stone circulated the letter, which NBC reported on but did not include a link to or a copy of the letter. BC reported. It calls McConnell a creature of the swamp. Jim Clayton, who writes for Conservative News Daily, reported on Monday that he was sent the letter,...

    The Benghazi affair is beginning to shape up as a bi-partisan scandal making Trey Gowdys life doubly difficult, of course. But the former prosecutor has been doing a bang-up job with his select committee, demolishing the mantra that there is nothing new to be learned about Benghazi and building a sober, far-reaching inquiry. Without Gowdy, recall, there would be no Clinton secret server, no Sidney Blumenthal trail, no new emails, and no upcoming testimony from Mrs. Clinton and her inner circle . On the latter, Gowdy is holding firm, saying he will not schedule testimony until all relevant emails...

    Im late, Im late! Today is Rabbit Hole Wednesday on Thursday, because I didnt get it done yesterday. Today we examine the RQ Hypothesis: "Our new President, of course, has not been in this line of work before," said McConnell. "I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process." Adapt, Mitchy, adapt. Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that! Or you wont be in this line...

    I was searching and found some new polling data from Alabama where the first round of the Republican primary for US Senate is next Tuesday August 15th. The top two candidates move onto the second round. The poll from JMC Analytics and Polling shows Roy Moore now at 30 percent, Luther Strange (appointed Senator supported by Mitch McConnell) at 22 percent and Congressman Mo Brooks at 19 percent. A previous poll at Strange at 35 percent, Moore at 26 percent and Brooks at 16 percent in a 19 candidate field. The "Strange Endorsement" of Strange by President Trump has come...

    They lied about repealing Obamacare, now Mitch McConnell's DC slime machine spending millions spreading lies about Roy Moore, bearing false witness. Why? We know why. We all know why. Roy Moore's honest and Moore's his own man. Moore fears God, stands for the Constitution, fights for what is right and believes what we believe. Drain the swamp. Send McConnell a message. Send them all a message. Roy Moore, Senate. My name's Roy Moore and I approve this message.

    A week after an attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says hed consider a bipartisan effort to continue payments to insurers to avert a costly rattling of health insurance markets. McConnell told reporters Saturday there is still a chance the Senate could revive the measure to repeal and replace Obamacare, but he acknowledged the window for that is rapidly closing. The Kentucky senator noted Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee is working on some kind of bipartisan approach that would involve subsidies for insurance companies. Alexander recently said he will work with the...

    Lets talk about congressional Republicans. A year ago today, Republicans in congress were possibly the single most-detested part of the ruling class in Washington, DC. They had, as a group, made more false and failed promises to voters over the previous seven years than almost any such collective group of politicians in American history. They were headed at that point for a thrashing at the voting booths, with experts and polls indicating the GOP would lose its Senate majority and could possibly lose the House as well, if Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in a landslide in the presidential contest....

    Tired of winning yet? National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told C-SPAN Monday that the rapid downturn in illegal border crossings is nothing short of miraculous. He elaborated that total recorded border crossings in 2017 are just 53% of what they were in 2016, and that percentage continues to drop each week. As we have noted before, this has been achieved without building single foot of wall, without changes to existing statutes, without any new huge budget allocations to the Border Patrol, without the introduction of any new technology. The one and only reason for this fall is the...

    This parade of the addled, the lame and the simply ineffective and dim could go on and on, but heres the point: Congress is in the process of deciding what the nations health insurance system and therefore, the nations health delivery system will look like for coming generations. This is unfortunately a federal intervention into 1/6th of the U.S. economy that the leaders of both political parties agree needs to happen. The Democrats accomplished the initial takeover in 2010 without a single Republican vote, and the Republicans appear to be limping towards making some sort of reform to...

    In a transparent attempt at blame-shifting, former Obama spokesman Josh Earnest has tried to place responsibility for President Obamas failure to respond effectively to Russian meddling in the election . . . on Republicans. Its been reported that Obama was paralyzed into inaction by fears of seeming to help Hillary during the campaign. Appearing on todays Morning Joe, Earnest said: The first time, [McConnell] didnt have time to schedule time to talk about it. This is something that Republicans did not take seriously, and that did hamstring our efforts to respond to this as effectively as we would have liked....
