Mitch McConnell has been described as a turtle. He reminds me of another reptile…a snake.
My memory is not so short that I’ve forgotten the way he treated the Tea Party members who were elected in 2010. How he bragged about destroying them. He’s the ultimate DC insider. He’s almost never stood up to his buddies the democrats when there was a deal to be made and he could get something out of it. Almost never. Then he starts sounding like Trump is helping him find a little courage.
McConnell’s Decision To Block Obama’s SCOTUS Pick Looks Brilliant Right Now
When news broke that Scalia had died unexpectedly Feb. 13, McConnell stunned the White House by almost immediately releasing a statement declaring the Senate would block any Obama nominee to replace him on the bench.
“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice,” McConnell said in a statement less than an hour after the news of Scalia’s death broke. “Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new President.”
THEN I SAW THIS:
McConnell: Oh Yeah, We’re Going To Move To Repeal Obamacare
I’LL BELIEVE IT WHEN I SEE IT
Senate Republicans, flush with victory and defying the odds, have maintained their majority in the upper chamber and vowed to move quickly on repealing Obamacare. Senate Majority Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said, “It’s pretty high on our agenda as you know. I would be shocked if we didn’t move forward and keep our commitment to the American people.”
HE’S SAYING THE RIGHT THINGS, BUT THEN THERE’S THIS:
McConnell hints against nuke option to kill Dem filibusters
IF HE ALLOWS THE DEMOCRATS TO FILIBUSTER TRUMP WILL NEVER GET A CONSTITUTIONALIST APPOINTED TO SCOTUS.
THAT WAS ONE OF THE BIGGEST REASONS HE WON TUESDAY.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hinted Wednesday that he doesn’t support the controversial idea of changing Senate rules to kill Democratic filibusters, and instead indicated that this move might be seen as an overreach by Republicans.
When Democrats ran the Senate, they changed the rules to allow for simple majority votes for judicial nominees, but not Supreme Court nominees, which can still be filibustered. But despite speculation that Republicans will take this next step, McConnell indicated some resistance to it when asked.
The option of ending filibusters on high court nominees has been raised because Republicans have blocked President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, for months now. As a result, Democrats are expected to block Donald Trump’s nominee once he takes office next year, and some Republicans say another rule change is needed to ensure the nominee can get through.
There is much to do and not much time to get it done. In two years there will be another fight and nobody knows what the landscape will look like. Suffice to say Trump is no weak-kneed moderate pansy.
HADN’T PLANNED ON PUTTING THIS HERE, BUT IT JUST FIT
Trump: The Left Just Lost The War On Climate Change
The Global Warming/Climate Change Hoax is the biggest scam ever perpetrated on this planet. It is a socialist scheme to redistribute wealth and control populations by restricting their access to abundant, affordable energy. Myron Ebell would be an excellent choice for EPA Administrator.
But with a climate skeptic running the most powerful nation in the world, the $1.5 trillion per annum climate change industry is going to start to unravel big time. A Trump presidency is likely to be good news for fossil fuels (and heavy industry that needs cheap energy to survive); and very bad news for renewables.
What does Trump’s victory mean for energy policy? ‘Climate sanity has been restored to the US’
Real estate mogul Donald Trump has won the presidential election, and that likely means the Obama administration’s global warming agenda will be massively scaled back or scrapped altogether.
Trump, a Republican, has promised to cut the EPA, scrap the Paris climate treaty and rollback rules holding back U.S. energy production.
Trump’s win comes as United Nations delegates meet in Morocco to discuss how to implement a major global warming agreement hashed out in Paris last year. Trump promised to tear up the agreement, and scrap the main way Obama planned on meeting his climate pledge.
THIS IS WHY I HATED HAVING TO DO AN OUTLINE FOR MY WRITING IN SCHOOL. I COULD NEVER STICK TO THE SCRIPT.
The Nuclear Option: Welcome, Democrats, to the Revolution
Tens of millions of voters cast ballots Tuesday for Hillary Clinton. Except for a relative handful of wealthy and connected people, nobody actually wanted to vote for her.
She is the most corrupt, compromised, dishonest, self-dealing, delusional and unlikeable candidate perhaps to ever run for president.
I used to wonder why President Obama would want to hand his legacy over to such fake and felonious monster. Then I realized that he doesn’t really care about anything but himself and for as long as she is around, people will miss him.
Anyway, Mrs. Clinton’s campaign was about everything and anything and, in the end, nothing.
In the Republican revolution, Mr. Trump gave voice to voters who have been ignored by GOP leaders for decades. He gave them a voice and together they changed the party’s stance on immigration, trade, economics, national security and globalism.
He uprooted and altered the very language the party spoke. The whispered tiptoeing of political correctness was slain.
The same revolution that exploded the Republican Party this year is still boiling inside the Democratic Party. Eventually, it will explode. And the longer it seethes, the more devastating the explosion will be.
