    “I’m late, I’m late!” Today is Rabbit Hole Wednesday on Thursday, because I didn’t 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 won’t 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.
  • McConnell to consider bipartisan plan to pay health insurers

    Associated Press ^ | Aug 5, 2017 4:54 PM EDT | Adam Beam
    A week after an attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he’d 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...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Friday called for the repeal of the 17th Amendment and the return to senators selected by state legislatures after the Senate GOP's effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare died in a late-night vote. The 17th Amendment was ratified in 1913 and established the popular election of senators. Previously, senators were elected by state legislatures. @GovMikeHuckabee Time to repeal 17th Amendment. Founders had it right-Senators chosen by state legislatures. Will work for their states and respect 10th amid The Senate's "skinny repeal" of ObamaCare failed late Thursday night by a vote of 51-49.

    Let’s 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 here’s the point: Congress is in the process of deciding what the nation’s health insurance system – and therefore, the nation’s 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...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    In a transparent attempt at blame-shifting, former Obama spokesman Josh Earnest has tried to place responsibility for President Obama’s failure to respond effectively to Russian meddling in the election . . . on Republicans. It’s been reported that Obama was paralyzed into inaction by fears of seeming to help Hillary during the campaign. Appearing on today’s Morning Joe, Earnest said: “The first time, [McConnell] didn’t 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.”...

    Soon, all the politicians in Washington, D.C., will run down the Capitol steps, full of excitement about the beginning of summer recess. (I just couldn’t resist that visual.) Still, some lawmakers are calling for a reduction in Congress’ time off for the month of August so the needed legislative work can actually get done. It’s not as if they haven’t had time to work, but I believe our legislators have chosen to wait and see how the mainstream media and the progressive left might lead them. Budget reconciliation must be completed, and the American people deserve an Obamacare repeal-and-replace. Congress also needs...

    SCOTUS filibuster vaporized as Mitch McConnell holds firm on cloture rule change Wow. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) actually did the right thing for a change. He led the way as Senate Republicans invoked the so-called nuclear option today, voting 52 to 48 on a party-line vote to eliminate the filibuster for nominations to the Supreme Court. Going forward, high court nominees including President Trump’s current pick Neil Gorsuch, will need a simple majority to be confirmed.

    With the Senate’s Supreme Court confirmation vote for Judge Neil Gorsuch just days away and the possibly of Republicans nuking the filibuster looming, NBC’s Chuck Todd seemed as though he was in a near panic on Sunday’s Meet The Press. Besides his declarations of the GOP continuing the Senate’s decent down the “slippery slope” of removing the filibuster, Todd pestered Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the Senate to hold a vote for former President Barack Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland. “There is clearly a debate and a fight about how Supreme Court justices are confirmed, how it was handled,”...

    I grow weary, beyond weary really, with the “but the Democrats” crap. And I shouldn’t be alone. We just had an election — Democrats got trounced. There are fewer Democrats in the legislative branch across the country since before the Great Depression. There is a Republican president to go along with those legislative majorities as well. Democrats lost more than 900 seats nationwide during the Obama years. The Democrats are literally in disarray and powerless. 1. Let me repeat that — the Democrats are literally powerless. Republicans have all the political and parliamentary power to do pretty much whatever they...

    ollowing a scathing speech against Trump's nominee for Attorney General, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell said Senator Elizabeth Warren had "impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama," violating the so-called 'Rule 19'. By a vote of 49-43, Senator Warren was then barred from speaking on the floor until Senator Sessions nomination debate is complete (likely tomorrow evening).... McConnell defended the decision, noting Warren had been warned. "Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation," he said after the vote. "Nevertheless, she persisted."

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump isn't likely to get his travel ban implemented by Congress if courts strike it down. "I don't know that that's necessary," McConnell told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" Sunday. "I mean, the courts are going to decide whether the executive order the President issued is valid or not, and we all follow court orders." McConnell's comments come after a federal judge put a pause on Trump's order that barred citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries -- Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen -- from entering the US...

    Several top Senate Republicans raised concerns Sunday that President Trump’s order to halt the admission of refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries had not been properly vetted and could harm the relationship between the United States and key allies. […] Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) cautioned that the United States does not have a religious test for entry into the country, though he stopped short of rejecting the order in its entirety. McConnell said that Muslims, both in the United States and abroad, are key allies in the fight against terrorism and urged caution in regard to Trump’s...

    If the Senate Majority Leader stays true to form, President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch is going nowhere When Senate Democrats confirmed yesterday that they will filibuster President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) responded, “What I would expect from our Democratic friends is that the nominee be handled similarly to Clinton’s and Obama’s first two nominees in their first terms.” Wow. If I were Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), I’d be peeing my pants.
