Beware Senator Mitch McConnell…

Sometimes we must call the baby ugly.  CTH has followed and mapped how Mitch McConnell operates for over a decade.  Here’s the deal as we see it…

Senate Leader Mitch McConnell has one major career alliance that has been unbroken and unchanged for well over two decades.  That alliance is with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and specifically with CoC President Tom Donohue.  [SEE HERE and SEE HERE].

Mitch McConnell is stealthily working against the efforts of President Donald Trump.  The effort is to support his primary Wall Street financial benefactor, Donohue. However, Mitch McConnell cannot directly be connected to underhanded efforts against President Trump because it would lead to: (A) questions about a confrontation; and (B) public exposure. [ex. think about how McConnell is blocking President Trump from recess appointments]

Mitch McConnell is up for election in 2020; in the exact same cycle as the reelection of President Trump.  If it became more obvious what McConnell is doing, there’s a strong, heck, guaranteed, likelihood Trump would be empowered to turn against McConnell.  Therefore Mitch McConnell has to be very careful about the visibility of how he undermines the President. Everything must have built in plausible deniability.

McConnell has a history of getting caught. However, fortunately for him people also have a tendency to forget [see McConnell’s scheme in the Mississippi 2014 Cochran race as an example].  Almost no-one remembers that U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, the founder of the Senate Conservative Fund, quit the Senate specifically because of the schemes and internal Machiavellian power moves of Mitch McConnell.

So when the carefully constructed, pre-planned, pre-scheduled, and pre-organized public op-ed by incoming Senator Mitt Romney was deployed in the Washington Post… for those who have watched McConnell work; we knew exactly who orchestrated it and why.

Senator Romney will be one (not the only) visible face of the opposition.  However, just like former Senator Corker and current Senator Sasse, the instructions (direct and indirect), and/or the approvals, will come from Leader McConnell’s office.

Through his power structure McConnell directly controls about 8 to 15 republican senators; we have called them “The Decepticons” for years. [Cornyn, Thune, Porter, Blunt, Portman, Burr, Barasso, Crapo, Murkowski, Gardner, Roberts, Sasse, Tillis, Graham and now Romney]

McConnell needed to test Romney’s commitment to the Decepticon club.  Romney passed the test.  Romney was rewarded with placement on the Senate Foreign Relations committee.  Those Senators who sit on this committee get the most financial benefit from foreign lobbying.  To understand the financial process think: Qatar & McCain Institute etc.

That’s what is going on internally…. and no, I doubt President Trump knows the scale of it; or maybe he does, and he has to pretend like he doesn’t to navigate his agenda… but somehow I doubt it.

To remind ourselves how Minority and Majority Senator McConnell took down the threat of the Tea Party revisit these old articles CNN Part I and CNN Part II  both showcase how McConnell works.   Then do some research on how McConnell worked with Haley Barbour in Mississippi [SEE HERE].

Yes, Democrats are the opponents.  However, the far more urgent MAGA enemy is Mitch McConnell.

There.

    Just a reminder of how McConnell chased Senator Jim Bunning (KY) out of the Senate. McConnell is a snake, as a Commonwealth voter I’ll vote for his primary opponent. But McConnell is the 800# gorilla in KY politics, which means I’ll have to vote for his Dem opponent also.
    Before everyone does the Commonwealth voter hate sh!t, in 2014 when McConnell was up for re-election, everyone on here said to vote GOP because it was more important to win the Senate than forced retirement of McConnell.

      We have a problem in Kentucky with McConnell. If we fight to replace him then the dems are fighting for the same thing. Mitch owns the State of Kentucky. He knows it and so does everyone else knows it. Mitchel has been very very quiet lately and Rand Paul has also. So what doe we do, help get rid of Mitch or help to flip that seat to a dem?

        Blue Moon, I agree it’s a dilemma I’ve been working thru for a couple years. Every time I email, I ask that he do the Commonwealth right by resigning to private life to allow Gov Bevin to select a good conservative replacement and a couple years to establish a record. Well that didn’t work. I just can’t reconcile Mitch the Globalist in the Senate for another 6 years.

          I’d say when it comes to McConnell, just get him out. The seat will flip back red even if it’s temporarily blue. After this election, the dems can’t impeach PDJT again. Maybe there’s a narrow window to flush the parasite. There’s the issue of the Supreme Court, which complicates things … but the Senate can keep the majority even if it loses Mitch. Tough call. But it’s getting to the point where the logic of cutting off a limb to save the patient becomes relevant …. it’s just getting the calculus right on when it would be only a limb.

        You did not read it well. McConnell must be defeated. Our President will pick a New Senate leader. McConnell has not helped our President. Our President gets things done because he is much snarter than McConnell. Look at what happened in Kentucky all of the people whi McConnell liked won. Matt Bevin who ran for Senate Primary against McConnell lost. He called a recall but McConnell said he should live with the results people forget that Bevin won in 2015 with a recount. McConnell did him up because Bevin is a real conservative he cant control. Vote for the democrat and let McConnell lose his leadership position.It wilk help in the future that is what the writer is saying. McConnell is a nevertrumper like most of them. He never thought our President would be the nominee. He endorsed Jeb Bush for Gods sake who promised Clinton the election. He never saw it coning. If you look at wilikleakes he voted for Evan McMillan. I live in Florida and voted for the democrat canidate ocer nevertrumper Marco Rubio. Rubio sucks. Whats the difference between him and a Corey Booker. Haley Barbour owns Rubio. Vote out McConnell.

    Yes, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is mcconnell’s piggy bank for donations to senate campaign’s he approves. I have never had any doubt he works against The President. I knew he would from the beginning because the senate is the heart of the swamp. Just look at the way he rushed to protect his fellow swamp creature jeff sessions when Trump should have fired him the day after he effectively recused himself from running the doj.

    I think a lot of you might hate me for saying this, but give it a chance to marinate…

    I was reading up on Tulsi Gabbard and would love to see a Trump/Gabbard ticket for the simple releshing fact of the fear that would sweep through DC at the thought of anti-establishment conservatives and liberals joining forces. I can think of nothing else that would force them to show what they truly are faster.

    I know it won’t happen, but man would that be sweet.

      Duhders I said shortly after the 2017 inauguration PDJT should take Gabbard on 2020 ticket. The unknown dynamic is what happens in 2024? Tulsi would be the “natural” front-runner. PDJT would need to do an intense vetting process of Tulsi.

        Yes, it would be amusing for a few seconds.

        But remember just how far Tulsi has drifted left in just a few years? Maybe not, as she has done this rather quietly! Just like Obama, she “evolved” on gay marriage and several other formerly centrist positions. Tulsi is an opportunist who I wouldn’t trust for more than an hour unsupervised, no matter her other redeeming qualities. She’s not an insane witch like Hillary, but her drifting on culture issues indicates she can be pushed around.

        Americanmom, absolutely correct to no thanks to Tulsi. She supports all the radical socialist views. Just because she attacks other leftist liberals does not make her a friend of MAGA.

      Interesting to read now that Clinton has called her a Russian asset and POTUS had defended her. But she is a radical and in time will become part of the swamp if she wants to remain.

    Yeah, I don’t really think McConnell is very stealthy. Its obvious he opposes Trump and that agenda. Look how little got done during 2016-2018 when -R’s controlled both the House and the Senate.

    Its taken me a while but I think I’m finally getting how the US works. The President funnels most of the pay-to-play and corruption money to important members of his own party and they direct gov’t money,contracts and favorable regulations to their donors and important constituents. Some of this corrupt money is also spread among the opposition party in order to keep everyone invested in the system. This money greases the entire system and provides for stable government with peaceful changes of power as long as the money keeps flowing. Anyone attempting to interfere with the payments system is removed. Trump didn’t want their money so he has no role to play in the US gov’t.

    Perhaps this is why PDJT has selected McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, as Transportation Secretary, for leverage, in case it was needed.

    I’m curious why Sundance suspects President Trump doesn’t know the extent of it?

    Sundance lays out Trump’s thinking better than anyone, when it comes to geopolitical negotiations; how for Trump, everything is a negotiation; and how Trump is master at identifying basic interests and built-in strengths and liabilities. Wouldn’t this apply all the more so to the politics that will most directly decide his fate?

    I think Trump knows. He’s locked in a bear hug with Mitch until the precise moment one of them believes he can survive (publicly) unattached to the other. Mitch has been waiting for the Trump’s numbers to dip low enough that he can more forcefully cut him loose. And Trump? My hope is he’s waiting for the Durham investigation to claim a republican scalp, thus creating the real-world proof that it’s truly Trump against the “Swamp” — and it’s HIS party now. And if neither comes to pass? Well they stay locked in their bearhug … each guarding against stealth attack while waiting for an opening to bring one.
