Raise your hand if you’re actually surprised that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is a swamp creature who despises Donald Trump and Donald Trump’s supporters. Not very many hands up, are there? McConnell seems to have done a decent job of appointing conservative judges over the past few years, which he deserves credit for, but it doesn’t look like he even wants to remain in the big corner office in the Senate. He’d rather put on a gimp suit and be in the minority, leaving the Senate in control of Chuck Schumer.
How else do you explain McConnell’s battle strategy in Georgia? Writing this a day before the Georgia runoff election, my gut is telling me that in a best-case scenario, we’re looking at a Loeffler victory and a Perdue loss. In a worst-case scenario, we’re about to lose the whole enchilada, which includes the constitutional republic itself.
And Mitch McConnell is fine with that. His family’s fortune is secure, so why should he care what happens to your family under the Green New Deal with a packed Supreme Court, statehood for DC and Puerto Rico, and the laundry list of other progressive wishes?
The sad thing is that the Georgia Senate races were winnable contests for the GOP, if they had bothered to put down their brandy snifters and cigars for a few minutes over the past four years and learned a thing or two from Donald Trump. McConnell obviously didn’t do that.
How else do you explain that nightmare of a COVID stimulus bill? This shouldn’t even be that hard. Here’s a quick pop quiz for you, which I’m sure you’ll probably ace:
What is the NUMBER ONE, SUPREME, MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE to Georgia voters of both political parties right now? (And also of most Americans in most states, obviously.)
You didn’t even have to think about the answer, did you? It’s the relief checks for Americans. After governments forced small businesses to shut down for nine months, and after tens of millions of Americans had their lives upended because our “experts” fell for Chinese propaganda over an illness that still doesn’t rank as deadly as the annual flu season*, Mitch McConnell decided that $600 ought to tide everyone over.
How insulting must that have been to everyone who has lost a business or lost income this year? Especially when weighed against the tens of billions of dollars sent to foreign countries for frivolous BS. $700 million for Sudan? No problem! Meanwhile, here’s $600 for the nail salon owner who has been out of business for nine months, who has a mortgage, two car payments and two kids to feed. Don’t spend it all in one place, Americans!
If McConnell had wanted to win two Senate seats in Georgia and thus keep the Senate under Republican control, he should have put up a one-page bill for COVID relief checks that everyone could have understood. Instead, McConnell tied the bigger relief checks to non-starter issues that would never pass in the Senate, thus giving Democrats a moral victory – and likely victory in Georgia.
Instead of giving Americans bigger relief checks, McConnell opted to send tens of millions of dollars to Lindsey Graham’s Trannies in Pakistan relief program. Oh, sorry. “Gender programs” in Pakistan.
But don’t kid yourself about that. The money won’t be helping girls learn to read or teaching Pakistani women to pass a DMV exam. The money is to be used to help post-operative male-to-female transgenders in Pakistan learn how to safely use tampons. No kidding.
Defending this abomination of a “COVID Relief” bill, Lindsey Graham repeatedly stated, “Pakistan is a place I’m very concerned about.”
I’ll bet he is!
McConnell has so effectively ditched the possibility of two easy Republican wins in Georgia that the Democrats won’t even have to bother cheating this time. Why would they? They already think they won the big prize of the presidency, and McConnell has done the heavy lifting for the loss.
You want more proof that McConnell wants to lose those two Senate seats? What has Mitch McConnell not been mentioning for the past two months? Not even once.
That’s right. If McConnell had wanted to maintain control of the Senate, he’d have been on the campaign trail in Georgia decrying the massive fraud that took place in the 2020 election. But he’s not, so we know which side he’s really on.
