Senator Mitch McConnell Announces He is “Especially Proud” of Legislation Rebuking President Trump…

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces he is “especially proud” of passage for his amendments requiring the U.S. military to continue operations in Afghanistan and Syria:

(Tweet Link)

The bill passed 77-yea, 23-nea.  [Vote Tally Here] The only Republican who voted against perpetual war in the middle east and supported President Trump was Rand Paul.

Every time this happens victims of battered conservative syndrome start a process of reconciling the reason for their abuse by excusing and justifying their abuser, Mitch McConnell.

Let’s be clear, CTH has watched this process, on a very granular level, for well over a decade; specifically about Senator McConnell.  Mitch McConnell doesn’t give a hoot what any voter, constituent, or member of the national electorate thinks about his action.  He is entirely unfazed and bound to a power ideology that sets him above all considerations.

Senator Mitch McConnell, just like all of the power brokers within the DC beltway, views himself as your ruler.  Until we purposefully accept the nature of this abusive relationship nothing will change,  ever.  Reminder…

Beware of Mitch McConnell

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]

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….

      I thought he was up for reelection in 2020.
      HOW? Firstly all MAGA supporters in Kentucky need to volonteer at their local Republican party.
      KNOW your precinct captain, or BECOME your precinct captain.

      Get to know your County and State party chairs. Make SURE they are MAGA, or OUT.

      Republican party, as currently constituted, is MORE of a threat to US, POTUS and MAGA than the Dems are!

      Either we take,control away from these Decepticons, or we are through!

      We truly need to clean house, and its starts at the local and State level.

      Its up to you

      Nothing we do will stop Mitch. The people in KY are the ones that should stop this traitor in his tracks. But year after year folks in KY do nothing. Maybe now after they see 300 judge positions still open, and Mitch working AGAINST POTUS every step of the way might they react. I certainly hope so.

      Where are the people of KY on here at CTH. I know no one that has commented helping us understand what is going on. At least Cornyn will be primaried and out the door here in Texas.

      No one in KY has helped me understand what the heck is going on there. I am all ears.

      You’re so right. I already solemnly swore while watching my senator John Cornyn vote against the President this week, and his shameful inattention and failure to stand during the SOTU tonight that I will hold my nose and vote for ANYONE who runs against him. Better to have a junior Democrat senator from Texas than a cunning traitor who falsely professes loyalty to his constituents, the conservative movement and his President.

    Anyone else notice McConnell looked like he was in the twilight zone when the camera was on him during the SOTU address?

    I am delighted the President gave him a gut punch regarding the failure of the Senate to confirm his nominees. I am sensing that the President has had enough of McConnell’s increasingly belligerent behavior toward him.. I noticed McConnell’s Tweet (shown above) proclaiming his pride in slapping the President was sent this afternoon, giving the President plenty of time before the SOTU to confront McConnell.

    If McConnell doesn’t have enough votes in his pocket to assure the President’s impeachment, presumably due to the Mueller report and not the issue of bringing the troops home, he is going to lose bigly for disrespecting him so egregiously. I will guess that McConnell is emboldened by having the support of the Repub Senate leadership and the GOPe at-large behind him.

        I wonder if anyone is looking into Tom Donohue? With all the dirty hanky-panky with the Podestas, Manafort, and many of the other usual suspects, and those Gwd-awful trade deals being reworked, how can it be Donohue/CoC operatives and sycophants avoid wrongful and unlawful dealings? What’s the likelihood is Donohue is on the investigative radar? Ukraine, China, Iran, Turkey and the EU seem to be among the worst actors.

        All that money. All that influence to be bought and sold. So much for sale to the highest bidder. And all so normalized. Business as per usual until VSGDJT took office, and the world began to see that the so-called smart guys are not so smart after all.

      After the president’s great speech last night, I saw him keep his back to McConnell and ignore him, as he was walking through the many who were clamoring to talk to him and shake his hand. Yes McConnell sitting there looking down during the address, like an evil blob. The democrats would have won the election if not for Trump and he fights him all the way. At least the democrats stick together, I’ll give them that.

    I have lived in KY for 11 years and have been active in the local party which is very successful. I’ve attended state conventions (6 years ago) and was overwhelmed by the “go along to get along” party establishment. Governor Matt Bevin ran against McConnell in the Senate primary and lost, however it got him enough exposure to become Governor.
    I confronted Senator McConnell in 2016 during the Billy Bush scandal and he denied he trashed the president. He refused to give support for President Trump during the election to this Chamber of Commerce group.

    All politics is local. Sometimes we lose sight of this. There was a very confident politician named Eric Cantor that knows this all too well. Mitch is the most unpopular Senator in the US Senate. He is also hugely unpopular in his home state of Kentucky. Those who have run against him lose because they don’t have the money to compete, not because they are not competent politicians. His previous opponent won the governors seat after losing the senate race. I’ve read a bit about McConnell’s exploits in China, and feel that some good oppo could doom him in 2020. Suggest political organizers in Kentucky read “How to bag a Rhino”.

    That language is in the Sense of the Senate clause, and is thus not binding. Further, it doesn’t call for not ending the wars. Rather, it “calls upon the Administration to certify that conditions have been met for the enduring defeat of al Qaeda and ISIS before initiating any significant withdrawal of United States forces from Syria or Afghanistan.” I realize that despite the lack of the force of law, such actions by Congress puts political pressure on the President, and I’m not defending the Swamp and their forever wars, I’m just providing what seems to me to be a bit of important context to this.

    I appreciate Sundance’s article, tone, and facts, but this is a gift.

    The whole Pres. Trump master chess player 16 dimension q bs is lost on me, but one multi-dimensional chess player I do believe in (Hubris) just played a killer move.

    Afghanistan is now “Mitch’s War”. Just like Vietnam became Johnson’s war. Every flag draped casket, every wounded marine, every dollar spent in futile pursuit of “WHAT?” in Afghanistan now comes back to Mitch.

    If I were President Trump, I would ride this whole show right up to Mitch and let him live it. I predict, for what that is worth, that PDJT turns this whole thing onto Mitch, or uses it as leverage to get what he wants.

    There is no doubt, PDJT has said it bluntly many times, he wants out of Afghanistan. And let’s be grownups, there is no discernable difference for America between victory and defeat there.
    American went in for vengeance and we had it. We should have left after Bin Laden escaped at Tora Bora and called it even. But Ohhhh Nooo…….first we had to bring democracy to the Afghanistan (sarc) Democracy is where Tom Donahue and the Military Industrial Complex get to make billions ($700 billion in this case) and spend countless America lives and limbs playing with their fancy death toys and fanaticizing the grunts into believing complete bs.

    So this is a gift, because it lets PDJT put the responsibility at the Turtle’s feet (paws, claws, flipers, wth does a turtle have on the end of its legs, technically?) Just watch over the next couple months while this is delivered to Mitch’s door.

    By the way, I would be perfectly open to maintaining an air supplied remote air base there – completely disconnected from Kabul, all the better from which to bomb Irani nuclear assets, or at least threaten to. (Sun-Tzu, appear weak where you are strong, and strong where you are weak)

    And – for the discerning listener, some music for Mitch to sleep with:
