Senator Mitch McConnell Being Rebuked in Alabama Senate Race…

The Alabama Senate Republican run-off to fill the vacant seat from AG Jeff Sessions has become a referendum on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.  This is a very valuable situation for voters who understand how individual races, at specific moments, can create inflection points and change political history.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s defeat in 2014 was an example of one such moment.  Cantor’s defeat by challenger Dave Brat actually killed comprehensive immigration legislation, which included amnesty, 48 hours before the vote was scheduled to take place.

Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell is actively working to undermine the Make America Great Again legislative priorities of Republican President Donald Trump.  There is a grand list of McConnell’s activity showing direct and specific evidence in that regard:

•President Trump already gave congress a budget that reduces a trillion in spending; the Senate republicans balked and said reducing spending is not an acceptable goal. •Those same republicans and Democrats are suing President Trump trying to force the State Department to spend money on USAID and NGO’s. •Those same Senate republicans supported Omnibus spending bills. •Those same Senate republicans will not support removing ObamaCare. •Those same Senate republicans are fighting renegotiated trade deals including NAFTA. •Those same Senate republicans supported TPP. • Those same Senate republicans supported launching ridiculous Russian conspiracy investigations; and the list goes on, including •those same senate republicans using a strategic maneuver to block their own Republican President from recess appointments.

Well, you get the picture. There’s ample evidence of Senate Republicans opposing the President, and most of that opposition is fueled by Leader Mitch McConnell.

This is where the value of the Alabama Senate Race comes into play.  Senator Mitch McConnell has endorsed Luther Strange, and has assigned his political and financial teams to help Mr. Strange.  Mitch McConnell is up to his old tricks using Super-PAC money to attack the other Republican in the race, Roy Moore.

Back in 2014 McConnell and his crew targeted Mississippi Republican Chris McDaniel, who was challenging “their guy” Senator Thad Cochran.  The methods McConnell used to destroy McDaniel were horrific and included running ads labeling McDaniel as a racist.  The GOP even paid democrats to vote in the primary in a successful scheme to get rid of McDaniel. Hence, McConnell’s crew gained the name “The Shameful Seven”.

However, in the current 2017 Alabama race Roy Moore is currently leading Luther Strange in polling by a wide margin.  The runoff election is September 26th, and if Mitch McConnell and his tens of millions of dollars can be defeated, it would send a signal to Washington DC that Mitch needs to be removed from leadership.

 

Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore has taken a commanding 18-point lead in Alabama’s Republican Senate primary runoff, according to a poll released Wednesday.

The Opinion Savvy-Decision Desk HQ poll released Wednesday finds Moore with 50.3 percent support in the state, compared to just 32.2 percent for his challenger, Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.).

Moore … has seen his lead over Strange swell after coming in first place in last week’s primary. Moore won only 38 percent of the vote, compared to 32 percent for Strange. (read more)

    Someone may have asked already, but why did POTUS come out in support of Strange? Was that a ploy to try and get McConnell to do something else? A real head scratcher…

    Stating he is a “nut case” doesn’t tell me much, I must say his obvious supporters here present a much stronger case for voting for him. Always room for disagreement but tell us why you think he would be an embarrassment. From what folks here say he seems like something of a hardhead that may find compromise difficult. I’m not from Al so as long as he is there I really couldn’t care but once he becomes a Senator he affects all of us so I would like to know what to expect. The fact that he is not a McConnell type is a plus for me. Just trying to get specifics from both sides.

    The election choices in Alabama were horrible. They can be broken down as follows:

    1. Swamp Creature Luther Strange
    2. Mo Brooks – Mr. NeverTrumper
    3. The ideologue…

    Well, now that Mo Brooks is out of the way, no need to go into him.

    As for the Swamp Creature, well, as with all Swamp Creatures, they always behave themselves pre-election, and they always turn back to their normal shape post-election. There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that he’ll become McConnell’s mini-me after the election.

    The judge is an ideologue, and as with all ideologues, they march to the beat of a different drum. They’re rarely team players. He’s to the right of Scalia. However, if you want to rely on someone to protect Christians, freedom of speech, etc., and just generaly do the right thing just because it’s the right thing, he’s your guy.

    So this election just comes down to trust.

    Which one do YOU trust more with YOUR issues? The puppet or the ideologue?

      I would take the Ideologue any day over the Swamp Creature….if Mitch is supporting Strange that is one good reason to vote for Judge Moore. Judge Moore is probably similar to a Conservative Rand Paul.

      It doesn’t matter because 1) it’s up to AL to decide what they want; 2) neither one is going to be a real pick up win for the President.
      Each has his flaws. I tend to not care for the ideologue because certain groups are connected to him, and I’m not keen on their ideas, but I don’t know how bad Strange is — he could be just as problematic if not moreso.
      From a strategic point of view, which one will be easier to deflate and/or turn if he should decide to become a thorn (and thus take down some of his connections a peg or two) and that only if he becomes a problem; we could also look at it from the standpoint of which one is most likely to become a problem as well…pull for the one who is least likely to be the longstanding problem…and prepare for some headaches no matter who wins.

        I completely disagree with your assessment that NEITHER one will be a pick up for Trump. Moore has stood for the ten commandments, he has stood for Christian rights, and he has been attacked by the left an soft right, and still the people of Alabama want this man representing him by electing him every time he has ran for an office. The left tells us who we should back by the ones they attack. Moore WOULD be a huge pickup for Trump and the rule of law. Moore has never backed down from a fight no matter how many are aligned against him.

        Strange is/was the corrupt puppet of our ex-gov (called the “love-gov” by locals), appointed to Session’s position by Bentley, conveniently after giving a few political favors regarding the investigation into his hi-jinx with his mistress/office aid, Rebeca. If you are not familiar with Bentley, just picture Mr. Burns (from the Simpsons), but southern. They are both repulsive on many levels. I was so sad to see President Trump endorse him, just hoping there was a bigger strategy behind it. I am undecided on what to do regarding the upcoming election, will be reading SD’s analysis in the meantime for more info to help make my decision, which ever one enable’s #MAGA the most.
