    Perhaps Cocaine Mitch didn’t think all this through, but he’s now in a full retreat over the second impeachment of Donald Trump. Today, Rand Paul put together a procedural motion to declare Trump’s impeachment unconstitutional because he no longer holds the office of president in order to be removed from it. Somewhat surprisingly, given his past statements on the issue of Trump and the Capitol riot, McConnell voted in favor of that motion.Senate rejects Sen. Rand Paul's (R-KY) attempt to declare Trump's impeachment trial unconstitutional, 55-45.(Sen. Mitch McConnell sided with Paul's motion.)— The Recount (@therecount) January 26, 2021And just like...
  • NEWS ‘With This Win, We Can Move Forward‘: McConnell Says Eliminating Filibuster Is Dead

    On Monday night, GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declared that his battle to keep the Senate filibuster in place had been won. McConnell released a statement reading: Today, two Democratic Senators publicly confirmed they will not vote to end the legislative filibuster. They agree with President Biden’s and my view that no Senate majority should destroy the right of future minorities of both parties to help shape legislation. The legislative filibuster was a key part of the foundation beneath the Senate’s last 50-50 power-sharing agreement in 2001. With these assurance, I look forward to moving ahead with a power-sharing...
  • Mitch McConnell Faces Blowback Over the Impeachment Vote He Helped Engineer

    Red State ^ | Jan 26, 2021 1:30 PM ET | By streiff
    An uncharitable reading of this is that McConnell worked hand-in-glove with the Democrats to smooth the way for impeachment…even to the point of having a conversation with Biden on how this Constitutional travesty could proceed without messing up his efforts to staff his administration and pass legislation that would further damage the nation. A non-trivial number of Senators thought they could use the vote to get back in the good graces of the Democrats and the bookers for the Sunday morning talk shows, and they’ve now found out they can’t, see Establishment Republicans Want to Wash Trump Out of Their...

    <p>Most of the time, Americans pay scant attention to the rules that the House and Senate choose to govern themselves. We laugh when the House decides to go for gender-neutral language, but none of us thinks that makes any real difference. However, in the Senate, "China" Mitch McConnell has paved the way for a rule change that will allow the Democrats to alter forever America's longstanding structure and enable them to become a permanent governing class.</p>
  • With bipartisan deal, Trump’s second impeachment trial temporarily put on backburner

    Confirmation votes for Biden administration nominees and wrangling over COVID-19 aid legislation will occupy senators' time over the next two weeks rather than the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. That's due to a Friday night deal between Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell; the trial will begin on Feb. 9. The Democratic-majority House on Jan. 13 voted for a single impeachment article against Trump, charging him with inciting an insurrection that led to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. “The fact is, the House will deliver the article of impeachment to...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is sending the article of impeachment against former President Trump to the Senate on Monday, paving the way for a trial. The House of Representatives this month voted to impeach Trump for the second time in his presidency for "incitement of insurrection" after a mob of his supporters besieged the Capitol on Jan. 6 in a failed attempt to stop the certification of then-President-elect Joe Biden's electoral college win. "I've spoken to Speaker Pelosi who informed me that the article will be delivered to the Senate on...

    McConnell's speech prompted Nelson County GOP leaders to hold an emergency meeting, voting unanimously to issue a resolution censuring the senate majority leader for his comments. "This has shown his true colors," Nelson Co. GOP Chairman Don Thrasher said. "We felt today during his floor speech on the senate where he impugned the character of President Trump was unacceptable to us. His whole behavior overall through this whole process of the last week is not consistent with what he promised us when he was running for re-election." McConnell hasn't said how he will vote in the second impeachment trial of...
  • Coach John Calipari, Kentucky Basketball Team Kneel for National Anthem for First Time

    The entire Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball team, as well as coach John Calipari, took a knee during the national anthem on Saturday before their 76-58 win against Florida. In previous home games this season, the Wildcats had stayed in the locker room while the anthem played in Rupp Arena, according to The Athletic's Kyle Tucker. Calipari had previously said Kentucky would decide how to carry out any protests as a team, and that either all would participate or nobody would. The Wildcats stuck to that line of thought in their first public protest. The protest comes on the heels of...

    In the crucial Georgia Senate runoff races, Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock are using President Donald Trump’s latest push for larger stimulus checks to bash incumbent GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. In video posted Tuesday night, Trump called the $900 billion Covid relief bill passed by Congress an unsuitable “disgrace” and urged lawmakers to make a number of changes, including increasing the $600 stimulus checks to $2,000. The two Democratic Senate candidates, who have advocated for larger direct payments, wasted no time in responding to Trump’s move and criticizing their opponents..........."

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked a bipartisan effort to enlarge the COVID relief bill to $2,000. President Trump supports the enhanced relief package. As a consequence, in justifying his maneuver McConnell did something we are all too familiar with. It is time to expose the Decepticon game again; this time people will accept.At first blush you might ask yourself why Mitch McConnell would block this bill and put the Georgia special election senate races in question. He just handed Georgia democrats an atomic sledgehammer. However, what most people do not understand is how McConnell works; being in the minority...

    The U.S. Justice Department has filed a civil forfeiture complaint claiming that a piece of commercial property in Ohio was obtained with funding misappropriated from PrivatBank. Two civil forfeiture complaints were lodged earlier this year regarding properties located in Texas and Kentucky which are also alleged to have been secured with funds misappropriated from the bank in Ukraine, according to a DOJ press release. "The three complaints allege that Ihor Kolomoisky and Gennadiy Boholiubov, who owned PrivatBank, one of the largest banks in Ukraine, embezzled and defrauded the bank of billions of dollars," according to the DOJ. "The two obtained...

  • Mitch McConnell Will Reach Out to Senator-Elect Tommy Tuberville and Urge Him Turn His Back on Trump in Electoral College Vote

    Several states were stolen from President Trump in his landslide 2020 election. Democrats and the media claim it is perfectly normal to lock out GOP observers while you manufacture tens of thousands of votes to overcome a massive Trump win. Trump supporters disagree. But Mitch McConnell does not stand for President Trump and he does not stand with Trump’s voters. Mitch stands with the globalists and the Democrats and he is reportedly reaching out to Tommy Tuberville to warn him about creating a messy situation next week. Wow!

    Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) said that some Republican senators will join an effort to challenge Electoral College votes when the joint session of Congress meets on Jan. 6. The process must be initiated by requires one senator and one House representative. In addition to Greene, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) and a number of GOP House lawmakers have pledged to challenge the votes. “We have a very strong case, and our numbers are growing strong,” she said of the effort on Dec. 22 on Newsmax. “We talked to senators, and we’re good to go for this objection.” Greene didn’t say...

    On a Thursday in August in Louisville, months before the 2020 election, a parade of cars filled with Kentucky Teamster representatives and labor groups, showed their fury at Mitch McConnell’s constant blocking of critical COVID aid. They drove by McConnell’s office raucously honking and bearing signs saying “Mitch better have my money.”In 2017, a Public Policy Polling Survey asked Kentuckians, “Do you approve or disapprove of Senator Mitch McConnell’s job performance?” Only 18% approved. He clawed his rating back up to 39% on the eve of the election.So, what exactly drove these angry Kentuckians to re-elect Mitch McConnell with a...

    Thus far in Florida, approximately 20,000 people have died of COVID-19. In Texas, the number stands around 24,000, and in New York, about 35,000.New York is the smallest of the three, with 19.54 million residents. Then comes Florida, with 21.67 million, before Texas, with 28.7 million residents.COVID numbers are difficult to trust. Cases are often counted more than once as patients go in and out of the hospital, and some deaths are attributed to COVID that are barely related, if at all.There’s a perverse incentive to write down “COVID” and get state and federal money, no doubt, but one thing...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Racism is being declared a public health crisis in Louisville. Mayor Greg Fischer signed an executive order on Tuesday outlining a plan to advance racial equity for Black residents of the city. This comes after months of protests. Fischer says, "The protests we've seen are about people's absence of those things in their lives and for generations past. We must always strive to understand the long standing and justifiable grievances behind the protest." The executive order outlines seven key areas for city government to address the city's racial equity challenges: public safety; children and families; Black...
