Mitch McConnell is attempting to blunt former President Donald Trump’s influence in the party, as Politico puts it. His globalist streak is in direct conflict with Donald Trump’s America First policies.
The obedient Senate under Mitch McConnell voted to send $40 billion to Ukraine by 86-11. We are told there will be endless funding for Ukraine in the near and distant future. Only a few GOP senators voted ‘no”. Senator Paul attempted to force oversight and transparency over the funds since there is none built into the bill. Remarkably, McConnell vilified him for it.
“My colleague, Sen. Paul, has always been an isolationist,” McConnell said. “He’s proud of it and believes that’s where America ought to be.
“There’s always been a strand of isolationism in our party, but it’s not the dominant view, which was expressed in the vote that we had today and will be expressed again when we vote on the admission of Finland and Sweden into NATO.”
If you don’t support their wars, you’re an isolationist and hate NATO.
YOU CAN’T BRING THIS UP
As we spend billions on other nations, the US is mired in unsafe schools, baby formula shortages, dangerous open borders, high crime rates, and extraordinarily high gas, and home heating bills. At the same time, the White House is starting wars we can’t afford. The establishment under Biden is taking our hard-earned money and giving it to far-off lands to protect their borders, not ours.
If you bring any of this up, they tell you the issues have nothing to do with each other.
McConnell recently darted off to Kyiv with a small entourage of his allies to meet with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“It’s in America’s interest to do this,” McConnell insisted. “This is not a charity we’re involved in. It’s in our interests to help Ukrainians just like it’s in the interest of NATO countries,” McConnell told reporters after his meeting with Zelensky.
They are doing this without debate. In fact, they are shutting down all debate by impugning the character of those who resist. We are told to accept it and be quiet.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is a “ruthless thug”, he said, adding that the United States should be “first in line” to ratify potential new NATO members Finland and Sweden.
He agrees with Biden that we must designate Russia a state sponsor of terror.
IT’S TO BLUNT TRUMP
According to Politico, before his recent visit to Kyiv, McConnell betrayed his America First Republicans and told Biden: that he wanted to blunt former President Donald Trump’s influence by conveying to allies in Eastern Europe that “Republicans still believe NATO is important.”
That’s a sly deception since Donald Trump supported NATO.
If you don’t spend exorbitant funds and call for war with Russia, you are an isolationist and you don’t believe in NATO, according to him. None of that is true, but it’s a useful and effective talking point.
McConnell told Biden he wanted to “push back against the isolationist sentiment in my own party.”
Perhaps that’s why he says so little about the open borders. Are we isolationists not wanting masses of unvetted humanity to pour into the country?
President Trump never made NATO unimportant. He asked them to pay their fair share. On the other hand, Biden is asking NATO members to deprive their citizens of food and fuel, even though it’s clear the sanctions don’t work.
USEFULNESS OF DEMOCRATS
The Senate Minority Leader supports Democrats in their war against Donald Trump and his voters. Unfortunately, we must live with the octogenarian for five more years.
McConnell and his backers went to Kyiv with money and solace for the suffering Ukrainian people, but he has none for Americans who fund them.
How about just some leaders? Trump was a leader and he made leaders out of others. They seem headless without, even with the comparison to this current complete and total catastrophe, idiot Biden.
There are some who need to lose their American Citizenships pernimatly
Our globalists (joe & dems as well as McConnell & his GOPe) won’t aid Ukraine enough to win.
They are just sending enough to pay for the silence of Zelenski as he shreds all the evidence related to joe’s, nancy’s and other’s money laundering.
I expect to find out Zelenski has fled to a Western country soon where he might teach college.
Neither McConnell or McCarthy are the type of leaders America needs at this time in history.
Following the crushing defeat of the democrats in November, it is incumbent that new leadership assumes control of the House and the Senate. Maintaining a status quo leadership structure will not fix the issues facing our country.
Current leadership is the reason we have many of the issues before us.
on another note:
WASHINGTON, D.C.—After being denied communion in her home city of San Francisco, House Speaker Pelosi has retaliated against the insult by introducing articles of impeachment against Pope Francis.
“Denying me the Eucharist is a high crime. It’s not even the Pope’s job to deny communion to anyone,” said Pelosi to gathered reporters in Washington. “Who does he think he is? He’s gone mad with power! It is, therefore, my solemn Constitutional duty to draft articles of impeachment to be sent to the Senate so Pope Francis can be tried for his crimes.”
In the ensuing investigation, Congress found the Pope may have engaged in a quid pro quo, offering access to the Eucharist in exchange for not being a corrupt politician who advocates for the legal slaughter of millions of innocent babies. Political pundits are already calling on the Pope to step down if the charge is true.
“I do this with a very heavy heart, but it’s the right thing to do,” said Pelosi while fidgeting with her dentures. “Good morning, Sunday morning.”
When pressed as to whether Congress actually has the authority to impeach a pope, Pelosi responded that “we have to impeach him first in order to find out whether we can do it.”
