Jeff Sessions, Mitch McConnell: Soul Brothers From Different Mothers – Updated

The testimony given by AG Jeff Sessions to the House Judiciary Committee yesterday convinces me that Sessions dwells in the same swamp as our ol’ pal Smidge McConnell.  Both of them do a fine job at giving credence to the leftist stereotype of dumb Southern white men.  Sessions has mastered the “duh, you’ll have to ask someone else about that, I don’t remember” response to pointed questions about his actions and overall strategy.  Watch how Jeffie handles questions from Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the founder of the House Freedom Caucus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7uhe91wGUE Jim Jordan was not the only one who dismantled … Continue reading

Gary North Predicted Paul (Boehner Junior) Ryan’s Healthcare Sellout Six Years Ago

Two days ago The Conservative Treehouse blog ran a fine analysis of the deliberate deep-sixing of healthcare reform by the combines vested interests of the UniParty Dems and RINOS, the insurance industry, big labor, and progressives.  About six years ago, Gary North predicted this would happen.  But few outside the ranks of the then-significant Tea Party paid any attention.  Offered here are both stories.  First, from the 6 November 2010 edition of North’s “Specific Answers” column: John Boehner’s “GobGop” Plan to Sell Out the Tea Party in 2013. It Will Begin in January 2011. First, you must understand that Boehner … Continue reading

RNC Vice-Chairman Wants McConnell’s Resignation

From Washington Times: “McConnell needs to resign!!” Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere wrote in a Facebook posting. Mr. Villere isn’t just any Republican. He’s the longest-serving state GOP chairman in the nation, with 12 years on the job, and is the vice chairman of the Republican National Committee, the GOP’s national governing body. He also serves on the RNC’s executive committee that makes decisions alongside Chairman Reince Priebus. “Mitch is a good and honorable guy, but the base is leaving our party,” Mr. Villere said in an interview with The Washington Times. “I’m out in the field all the time … Continue reading

Boehner and McConnell are cowardly and spineless

From: wnd.com,  by Garth Kant,  on Sep 4, 2015,  see the article HERE. WASHINGTON – Why won’t Republican leadership in Congress fight President Obama? It’s the question that frustrates 75 percent of GOP voters and an issue that has likely helped Donald Trump skyrocket in the polls. Now, WND has obtained a revealing look into the thought process of the congressional Republican elite during a candid email exchange with a Senate leadership aide. It showed why GOP leadership is apparently so reluctant to effectively confront Obama on such key issues as defunding executive amnesty, Obamacare and Planned Parenthood. The dialogue also revealed … Continue reading

McConnell: New President Will Have to Defund Planned Parenthood

From Breitbart: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday that without a president “with a different point of view about Planned Parenthood,” defunding the abortion industry giant would have to wait until 2017. “The president’s made it very clear he’s not going to sign any bill that includes defunding of Planned Parenthood, so that’s another issue that awaits a new president, hopefully with a different point of view about Planned Parenthood,” McConnell said Monday on Kentucky station WYMT’s Issues and Answers. McConnell said that funding the federal government is his top priority when he returns to Washington, D.C., next week. He … Continue reading

Why does the Republican Party Exist?

By Ben Domenech at The Federalist: Why does the Republican Party exist? What is its purpose as a political entity – to what end do its members work to elect their fellow Republicans? What are its priorities? Whose interests does it serve? Why is this political party still around so long after its primary motivations for creation – the defense of the Union and the end of slavery – were achieved? The Democratic Party exists to serve its clients – but the Republican Party’s justification is more ethereal. Is it just an arbitrary entity seeking a universal negative, designed to … Continue reading

Speaking of the Truth…

I snagged this nugget from Mychal Massie’s page yesterday. A great trick of the devil is to have people follow blindly after that which results in their destruction. Such is the trick of both political parties the difference being, we expect that from democrats. Specific to that I have warned that inherent in politics is the specter of evil men led by evil men who are interested in personal gain, not the well-being of citizenry. Ted Cruz is being pilloried by establishment republicans because he publicly called Mitch McConnell a liar. The truth is Mitch McConnell is a liar and … Continue reading

War in the Senate: McConnell Scuttles Cruz Amendments

MCCONNELL BLOCKED AMENDMENTS FOR KATE’S LAW, DEFUNDING PLANNED PARENTHOOD From: breitbart.com,  by Ian Hanchett,  on Jul 25, 2015,  see the article HERE. Texas Senator and Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said that Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blocked amendments to defund Planned Parenthood, end the Congressional exemption to Obamacare and for Kate’s Law on Friday’s “Mark Levin Show.” Cruz, after re-iterating his charges that McConnell lied about whether there was a deal regarding Trade Promotion Authority and the Export-Import Bank, stated, “Now, let me tell you all the amendments Mitch McConnell blocked because he wants to reauthorize this corporate … Continue reading

Senate Floor: Ted Cruz Explodes on Mitch McConnell, Says He Lied to Entire Republican Conference

From: breitbart.com,  by Matthew Boyle,  on Jul 24, 2015,  see the article HERE. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, delivered a brutal speech bashing his own party’s leadership’s failures on the Senate floor on Friday morning after Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) moved forward with a plot to reauthorize the Export Import Bank. In the speech, Cruz says—calling him out personally—McConnell lied to the entire Republican conference. Cruz’s speech stemmed from how McConnell—despite telling the entire GOP conference there was no such secret deal with the Democrats during the Obamatrade process to later bring up Ex-Im reauthorization—actually did cut … Continue reading

Are Washington Republicans Incompetent? Mitch McConnell Damn Sure Is!

From: Powerline, By: John Hinderaker, On: February 27, 2015, See the article HERE. It is almost unbelievable how badly Congressional Republicans have botched their opposition to President Obama’s illegal executive amnesty and the funding of the Department of Homeland Security. The House, under John Boehner’s direction, did the right thing: it passed a bill that fully funded DHS, but barred spending to implement the amnesty that has now been declared illegal by a federal court. The action then moved to the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tried repeatedly to bring the House measure to the floor for a vote. … Continue reading

Senate Judiciary Committee votes to confirm Loretta Lynch as AG — thanks to three Republicans

From: Hot Air, By Allahpundit at 1:21 pm on February 26, 2015, see the article HERE. Because the GOP has a majority in the Senate, it also has a majority on all Senate committees — 12 to 9 in the case of the Judiciary Committee. But since Lynch’s confirmation has become a referendum on executive amnesty and the GOP is riddled with amnesty shills, there was no doubt that a few would cross over and vote with Democrats today to send her through to a floor vote of the entire Senate. The three defectors: Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham, both … Continue reading

Sen McConnell: Immigration Reform is Low Priority

From Breitbart: Soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says immigration reform will be a low priority next year in the wake of President Obama’s executive action on immigration. Speaking to Roll Call, McConnell said that while the current immigration system is “broken,” Obama’s recent executive actions — including offering legal status and work permits to nearly 5 million illegal immigrants — makes the prospect of moving quickly on reform next Congress far-fetched. “Well I can tell you for sure that what the president did after the election makes it unlikely that it is an early item for this conference. But … Continue reading

Would We Expect ANYTHING Different ?

On the heels of the absolute ass-whupping the democrats took Tuesday, Obama says NYET to signing ANY Obamacare repeal. Like, GEE, NO SHIT. Some words of advice to Boehner and McConnell: DEFUND IT. The mofo CANNOT DO anything about THAT. Here it is, in the horse’s ass own words. From Newsmax.com and Greg Richter. President: I Won’t Sign Any Bill to Repeal Obamacare Wednesday, 05 Nov 2014 05:20 PM By Greg Richter   One day after his party took a drubbing in the midterm elections, President Barack Obama said he had no intention of signing a Republican bill to overturn … Continue reading

How Mitch McConnell’s Plan Worked

From Yahoo News: After reading this, my estimation of Mitch McConnell just went up a couple of notches. It was his plan that got a 9-0 decision from the SCOTUS on O’s NLRB appointments. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell began plotting his counter-attack just a few days  after President Barack Obama made an end-run around Senate Republicans and unilaterally moved to fill slots on the  National Labor Relations Board in January 2012. One night that month, McConnell called a small group of his top advisers into his conference room, a red-painted chamber that faces the National Mall and is lined with … Continue reading

Obama: I don’t need no stinkin’ Congress

Obama to Congress: I don’t need new permission on Iraq By Barbara Starr, Deirdre Walsh and Tom Cohen, CNN Washington (CNN) — I’ll let you know what’s going on, but I don’t need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq. The White House meeting sounded more like a listening session for the top Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate about options for helping Iraq’s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad that Obama is considering. Dick Cheney … Continue reading

Pesky Truth Gazette, Vol. 2, Num. E [satire]

Vol. 2, Number E Barack Obama vs. Mitch McConnell: The Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) match of the century Our lead story: A Beltway caged match between two gnats giants in the world of American politics. President Obama has been getting more frustrated every time some news outlet portrays him as a wimp. He’s commonly shown riding a bicycle and wearing mom jeans and a helmet. That effeminate image is usually paired alongside pictures of a shirtless Vladimir Putin, riding a horse – an altogether more manly figure. Finally, they crossed Obama’s “red line” (his 43rd one) and he decided that he … Continue reading

Mitch McConnell is the Problem

I’m not going to bore you with McConnell’s speech at CPAC the other day. Mind you CPAC is short for CONSERVATIVE Political Action Committee. Asshat McConnell, who is in a tight race in Kentucky, addressed the CPAC audience last Friday and blurted these words: “If I’m given the opportunity to lead the United States Senate next year, I won’t let you down,” McConnell said. “I will lead with integrity, we will fight tooth and nail for conservative reforms that put this country back on track, we will debate our ideas openly, we will vote without fear, and we will govern … Continue reading
