McConnell on Spending: “No Government Shutdown”

233

Conservatives hoping to leverage a major government spending bill into an opportunity to defund Planned Parenthood got some discouraging news from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell this week. After Republicans failed to bring the issue of the organization’s federal funding to a vote last week, several conservatives said they hoped to attach it to a must-pass bill in September. But if McConnell has his way, such an attachment seems very unlikely.

“There’s no education in the second kick of the mule,” McConnell told reporters Thursday. “We’ve been down this path before.”

Yes, yes we have. And every time, Republicans like McConnell have ultimately given in to the Democrats. This leadership has no heart for a fight that might make them look bad in the press. What they don’t realize is that this “tough talk, immediate surrender” way of governing is even worse. Establishment Republicans would be better off capitulating from the beginning. At least that approach would have the resonance of honesty. It has become painfully obvious that the current strategy involves pumping up the base before caving to the opposition.

“We’ll fund the government,” McConnell said. “I can’t tell you what will finally end up in or out of any government funding resolution; I can tell you without fear of contradiction there will be no government shutdown.”

Isn’t this like Obama telegraphing military strategy in the public? If Democrats know that Republicans are unwilling to risk a shutdown to defund Planned Parenthood, they have no reason to fear the conservative wing. As long as they stand firm – and they have proven to be much more stubborn than the GOP – they will ensure that these abortionists continue to get millions in taxpayer dollars.

Symbolic Opposition

When Republicans took control of the Senate last November, conservatives hoped Congress would finally be able to block the worst of President Obama’s agenda. Instead, we got a Congress that seems to think symbolic opposition is all that’s important to the voters. They are certain, somehow, that what the American people hate more than anything is gridlock. As long as the wheels of Washington are turning, according to them, it doesn’t matter which direction things are moving.

These undercover videos have not only exposed the very real possibility that Planned Parenthood is engaged in illegal activity. They have also put the subject of abortion and federal funding back in the national spotlight. If Republicans are too foolish and incompetent to make a real effort to defund this organization, we are in a lot of trouble. If the Republican Party doesn’t stand against this, what will they stand against? Is there any red line?

A little backbone, that’s all we’re asking. But apparently that’s too much.

    It is NOT a backbone that MCConnell needs, McConnell is not a friend of Conservative causes.

    He is purposefully sabotaging conservative causes, He is a Liberal in conservative cloths.

    He should be removed from this leadership position, and tared and feathered..

    1. Goodforall says

      Yep-he is no better than Harry Reid was-Ted Cruz was so right to call him out.

      1. Conservative says

        CRUZ 2016! So few politicians today really have a backbone, no wonder we are becoming the laughing stock of the world. Too many politicians bowing at the feet of the Anti-American President Obama. To them, a good lie is better than a hard truth.

        1. Goodforall says

          I love Ted Cruz! But he has that birther issue to deal with. He is by far my favorite Congressman followed by Trey Gowdy.

          1. John Williams says

            Ted Cruz is and has been my choice from the very beginning. Please see about 3/4 of the way down this article where Ted Cruz is mentioned specifically, in theory Harvard Law Review should know what they are talking about, it is my opinion that Cruz would not be running if he did not feel he was eligible to be elected.

          2. Graybeest1938@yahoo.com says

            Obama got Elected so anyone with a fake birth certificate and enough money can get elected.

          3. John Williams says

            You forget obama is a socialist/progressive a conservative will have a lot more trouble.

          4. maxx says

            I like Cruz as well. I have read the H.L.R. narrative on Cruz. Even though they see his candidacy in a sort of positive light it does not mean anything. The left will make a crisis out of it just the way we should have demanded Obama be forced to release all of his documents. His birth certificate was’n the only document that was phony. Seeing the kind of people that boast of being Harvard grads does not give me much confidence in what Harvard has to say.

          5. John Williams says

            If I remember right there was a huge amount of screaming about the records of obama but the liberal lapdog media simply refused to make any thing out of it other than beat on those who demanded more information. The current birth certificate posted by the white house is, in my mind very questionable, and is more than likely not valid. I agree with you on those from Harvard, many are questionable.

          6. John Williams says

            Thank you

          7. jaybird says

            Do your research, there are quite a few articles on this and I think there was one stating that an amendment changing the requirements before Obummer was put in office.

          8. maxx says

            Sorry, but there is no such new Amendment. An Amendment is a “BIG DEAL” and could never be slipped into the Constitution just in time for Oblowhard no matter how devious the democrats are.

          9. jaybird says

            It was changed to say that if the Mother was a citizen that she could pass on her citizenship and a naturalization process would not be required. Do your investigation!

          10. AKLady says

            His daddy is Castro’s best friend.
            Is that what you want in the WH?

          11. John Williams says

            Facts please, not rhetoric, there must be a reason they left Cuba if things were so good, a life experience by someone who has been there and done that may be a very positive thing and a much better thing than someone with no idea about how bad things really are in the real world.

          12. AKLady says

            Money.
            I was born and raised in Miami.
            I lived the Cuban Crisis.
            I was a volunteer at Cuban Refugee Health Clinic funded by The Gesu Catholic Church.
            Why don’t you tell me what I do not know about the Cuban Revolution?

          13. John Williams says

            More rhetoric, still NO FACTS about Ted Cruz and his families relationship with Castro. I was born and raised in Colorado it does not make me an expert on Billy the Kid.

          14. AKLady says

            You are not old enough to have lived “Billy the Kid”.
            I lived the Castro Revolution. I knew refugees.

            I worked in a medical clinic for refugees.
            I went to school with refugees.

            The Cruz family left Cuba before Castro took over.
            They were not “refugees”.
            He admitted that, as did Rubio.

            Go to Miami today, you step into Central America.
            If you are not fluent in Spanish, you are going to
            Have major problems should you leave the “tourist” areas.

          15. John Williams says

            I quote from your earlier post “His daddy is Castro’s best friend.
            Is that what you want in the WH?” you cannot have it both ways, either Cruz’s daddy was Castro’s best friend or they left before Castro took over, that is what I meant when I said facts not rhetoric. I commend you for the job you did in a refugee clinic but you have no facts whatsoever about what you are talking about. when it comes to Cruz.

          16. AKLady says

            Do you live next door to all of your friends?
            He came to the US to attend school.
            The Cruz and Rubio families are not,. were not refugees.
            The question you should ask is why the Cruz family immigrated to Canada, rather than the US. Cruz’s family did not come to the States until he entered government,

          17. jaybird says

            Because they were working for the Canadian oil industry.

          18. AKLady says

            So we have been told.
            How does that prove anything you claim?
            Raphael Cruz’s relationship to Castro is public information.
            Working in the oil industry? That does not add up.
            Raphael claims to be an ordained minister.
            See if you can work the kinks out of the lies — then get back to me.

          19. jaybird says

            Prove it.

          20. AKLady says

            Public information.
            The Bio is on multiple sites.
            Nothing to prove.
            Look it up for yourself.

          21. jaybird says

            He wanted to join Castro when he was 17 yrs old and then he saw who Castro really was and changed his mind. I do not see where he keeps in touch with his “best frienf”.

          22. AKLady says

            You should be aware that travel between Canada and Cuba is permitted.
            Why do you think he lived in Canada all these years?

          23. Croco Dile says

            Those who wield power know that the masses can be run on the fantasy of something for nothing, and, they are more than willing to continuously sell the people the fantasy that they are getting something when in fact they are not.
            No people can be free and in control of their government by watching teleprompter personalities on TV tell them lies, and then having “debates” with each other about what was said, and then going and “voting” every couple of years. Think about how laughably absurd that is.
            If you implant an idea into peoples’ heads early and often they will see and believe things that have no reality at all. Hence the people in this country see it as free and see this FAKE republic as being real.

          24. Goodforall says

            The total irony is that the current liar in chief was never vetted on the requirements in our Constitution to even run for the presidency, much less sit in the WH.

          25. MAHB001 says

            That would have been the media’s job. But the media is no longer the media it is a propaganda machine for 0bama.

            Fight the media at:

            http://www.madashellboycott.com

            If you don’t who will?

          26. Goodforall says

            After the Thursday debate I’m thinking FOX is now part of that group as well.

          27. Mike O'Mara says

            I am not impressed by Fox’s choices on some of the issues but I am happy that candidates were pressed for actual answers. If the press had done it’s traditional job of digging up dirt on the candidates thereby vetting them Obama would never have been here destroying America. If pushing upsets any candidate he or she is not qualified for the position and should withdraw. WE NEED THIS. No potential candidate or proposed appointee can be exempt from the scrutiny of the press and the people.

          28. MAHB001 says

            I disagree… I think what Fox did was ask difficult questions in a friendly forum. That is what journalist used to do before they dropped their integrity to follow their ideology.

            Those questions were going to be asked by the Left Stream Media, and when the Left asked the questions they would have been far more biased in the framing of the questions…

            I see what Fox did was a favor to the candidates. They now know what the hard questions are going to be, and can now rehearse for the worst…. THAT WILL COME FROM THE HYPOCRITICAL LEFT STREAM MEDIA.

            In contrast, the Left stream media will ask Hillary “Are your Depends boxers or briefs, and what color are they?”

          29. Goodforall says

            I have seen enough to see what direction FOX is going. Kelly was way off base and had the clear intention to take Trump down with that war on women BS-her emotions gave her away. Rush and millions saw it as well. Maybe one day you will too. And Krauthemmer had his little “stick a fork” commentary. Believe me, they are scared to death of Trump.

          30. jaybird says

            She was asking the questions that Killary will be accusing him of, so he better get used to it.

          31. MAHB001 says

            Maybe i will, I do not listen to Rush all that often….

            Thee is NO doubt the controlling elite of the Republican party are scared to death of Trump. They do not control him…. They were also scared to death of the Tea Party….

            Without a corrupt media, the Tea party would be the largest party and both the Dems and Republicans would be small third parties with about 10% each.

          32. Goodforall says

            We must stand united to fight the corruption that has taken over our government. Not sure if we can ever change the corrupt media-they have sold their souls to the devil.

          33. MAHB001 says

            The media, 0bama, and the socialists are one in the same.

            We must stand united against them all. My particular pet peeve is the media. The socialists would not be where they are today without the corrupt media.

            http://www.madashellboycott.com

          34. Chris Don Tremaine says

            You are so wrong. Megyn Kelly was not attacking Trump. She was just asking tough questions. These questions will set the tone for when the candidates meet, liberals vs conservatives. Trump needs to stop the personal attacks fairly soon or he will be passed over.
            I believe that Trump is just feeling his way through this grinder called “the debates”
            He is morphing in front of the cameras, turning even more conservative. I also believe that where we are as a country we need someone that won’t take any crap from our enemies, or if you like this better, showing he will not backdown like Obama always does. Don.

          35. Goodforall says

            A whole lot of people saw it differently than you-she deserved to be called out.

          36. Chris Don Tremaine says

            Yet a lot of people see it my way. I was Fox all the time Megyn is not that kind of person. Only liberals believe that. Don’t get me wrong I’m leaning Trump at this point. I really like Ted Cruz, and Scott Walker. Don.

          37. AKLady says

            LOL
            The Media — there are how many media outlets around the world?
            You can’t be serious.

            Troll, the media is as corrupt as you.

            Have you read the article I gave you the link to ?

          40. Goodforall says

            Yep! I am on board with most of it. Too many brainwashed sheep who have allowed the dictator in the WH (aka the great usurper) to vioate our Constitution without any interference from the weak sisters in the GOP leadership. I am all about limited government and more states rights.

          41. Croco Dile says

            Okay, then continue reading that site and you will understand how the system works.

          42. Mike O'Mara says

            You are correct Now take a look at his appointments. People we don’t even get to cast an empty token vote for. Most need to be in prison not on our payroll.

          43. Goodforall says

            My greatest hope was that he would indeed be found illegal to hold office and that all of his appointments and executive orders would be retracted. And yes, his appointments have been detrimental to the welfare of our Country. Pretty damn sad!

          44. 10579 says

            First in prison should be Holder,then Hillary then Kerry,then H Reid,then Pelosi and McConnell,Boehner .Dig Kennedy up and put him in prison for Chapiquidic and rape and being a nazi lover, that is Soros.Thank kennedy for our immigration problems since 1966.

          45. AKLady says

            The total irony is that people like you can be fed that propaganda and actually believe it. Only an imbecilic or a bigot would believe that lie.
            In reality what you are admitting is racial bigotry — pure and simple.

          46. Goodforall says

            Spoken like one of the sheep that blindly follow the fake right over the cliff! The real irony is that we allow stupid people like you to even have a vote. Some people just can’t handle the truth-fake birth certificates and all.

          47. AKLady says

            You really think the U.S. Government is incapable of vetting an individual running for President?

            Give it a break — America’s investigative services are not incompetent.

            The lie is old. The lie is absurdly ignorant.

            The lie assumes you are ignorant. Are you?

          48. 10579 says

            He was vetted by The Lefts Loon of the Era, Botox Nancy Pelosi.Think about it for a while then it will become clear that the democrat party/socialist party is run and funded by georgie Soros.

          49. maxx says

            A government on the verge of bankruptcy being further weakened by a anti-American psychopathic leader has nowhere else to go but down the toilet unless the people take direct action. The tree of freedom needs to be watered by the blood of patriots from time to time.

          50. Croco Dile says

            Politicians oblige. If the voters wanted men who spoke Sanskrit, dressed in kilts or used the language of mathematics, the politicians would procure them.

            Voters, it has been found, will not take anybody who lectures to them or even indirectly appears to be lecturing to them, although this is precisely what they need before anything else. In any event, the rank-and-file citizen prefers to accept the ready-made pre-financed, pre-fixed parties, in which in most cases he is permanently enrolled as in a religious brotherhood. Most voters ploddingly vote straight tickets, for one party, year after year. They are, as anyone can see, creatures of easy habit with little genuine political discernment. One can count most of their votes in advance. Politicians do. The party leaders, to give them credit, do the best they can in selecting candidates.

            There’s still time to nourish the Tree of Liberty with the sweat of God-fearing Patriots – you speak of a trading our liberty for outright tyranny. America isn’t prepared for your “direct action”. Invest your energy in the battle for the ballot box. And – God forbid – if that battle is lost…

          52. maxx says

            The last time the “bollot box” was even close to being “honest” was back in 1980.

          53. Victor Archuleta says

            Our only hope of peaceful resolution is for honest, God-fearing people to run for public offices. If there are none inclined to get to their duty to God, none should complain about the outcome of the election. They will have what they deserve – and God may well withhold His Mercy. If they will not fight for the ballot box, they probably won’t join any resistance either. If they won’t shed their sweat, how can they be asked to shed their blood?

            As a famous character once said, “Phooey on them!” I shall call to the rocks and trees until I have no voice, WAKE UP, AMERICA! THE TREE OF LIBERTY – AT THIS TIME – MUST BE NOURISHED WITH THE SWEAT OF GOD-FEARING PATRIOTS!

          54. Mike O'Mara says

            You are so right. Solutions? Cut the number of politicians by 2/3. Limit all of them to single terms. Establish a “Vote of Confidence” That invokes the immediate suspension of whatever action is before them until the vote is completed. A majority vote sends the member home instantly and the proposal is defeated. An unclear vote is put to the citizens. I do mean citizens with identification. In addition any information withheld from the citizens results in immediate removal and a 5 year jail term for each member responsible. If there is need there should be a body designed to verify that a security need exists and that body will be responsible for their findings. Anyone shown to be obstructing the will of the majority of the citizens of the United States of America by abusing this or any other method will be imprisoned no less then 20 years. Political appointees must be put up for approval by the citizens every 6 months and must meet certain requirements to qualify for appointment. No person who has not been fully vetted by both houses of congress is eligible for political appointment or to run for election to any political office.

            Since billionaires are calling the shots in this congress, like royalty.

            I am more inclined toward Donald Trump. Why? Because there seem to be a lot of people ganging up on him in fear. Fox news for one, Clinton for another. Do not want to disturb the Status Que in DC. All the crap in DC, stop talking and Indict!

          58. jaybird says

            The last time I heard him speak on illegal immigration he has changed again, send them all home, bring some back, the tec companies need employees. Disney in FL. laid off 250 tec workers and hired immigrants (dreamers?), the people had to train them to do their job or they would not get severance pay. They were going to lay some more off after that but there was an outcry from the public so they changed their mind.

          59. Charles Harris says

            A birther issue? Cruz or BHO? Cruz in probably the smartest candidate, along with Carson. Am sure that he knows where he stands legally on this issue at this time. Looks like Trump will be a victim of his own making. That leaves Cruz as the best prospect to handle HC. I wish they Conservatives would go ahead and pick the pres., VP and as many of the members of the cabinet ASAP so that a united front with the support of enough real Republicans would make the decision easier for the voters. And Gowdy; great choice for Justice. Plus, Walker at Labor, Carson at UN, Trump at State and Rubio, Carly, or Perry somewhere in the mix.

          60. Goodforall says

            I have no issue with the birth-it’s just many others do. Trump will be Trump-he isn’t going away any time soon. Cruz is my guy but not sure he can get enough of the independent vote as needed. Add Judge Andrew Napolotano to your list as AG. Bottom line is you couldn’t be more correct in that we need real conservatives in there instead of the establishment RINOS.

          61. jaybird says

            Congressman Michael Rogers (R-AL) and 4 co signers have put forth a bill # H.R. 1205 “TO KICK THE UN OUT OF THE US, CANCEL MEMBERSHIP AND DE-FUND”, Please call your Congressman and tell him to support this bill. We need to get the UN troops out of our country. If Obummer decides he doesn’t want to leave and declares Martial Law, those troops will be disarming the American People. All the Muslims in our government are not going to want to give up their positions either.

            Approx. 1+ yrs ago the NYC UN adv. on the gov. website for a person with 7 yrs. experience in small arms disarmament (America?). We do not want the UN here if the SHTF. Tell everyone you know.

            I am reserving judgement on Gowdy until I see if he gets results from his Benghazi committee. I liked him a lot at first but he seems right now, more sizzle than steak. Quick to get on the talk shows and in front of cameras – and TALK. Benghazi committee might be all show – no go. They really aren’t going to go after Hillary because all the power players know what was going on in Benghazi – weapons trafficking, to get them to our “great allies”, the Syrian rebels. Both parties were complicit in it. Gowdy, Issa, Chaffetz, Boehner, McCain, Graham, Corker, McConnell – all FRAUDS! What ever results from all the “outrage” they vent in public? They must be defeated in their primaries by Conservatives – they should be “Cantored”.

          64. Liz says

            What “birther” issue? If both of his parents had to be a Natural Born Citizen then kick O’Bama out of office now. Or are you referring to something else?

        2. jaybird says

          Also bowing at the feet of the lobbyist and globalist.

        3. scubamass says

          Your very right I like him too , but he has no parents meaning mom and dad that are American citizens at the time of his birth . Mom Cruz was the one American citizen ! It pisses me off that Mark Levin doesn’t understand this because he is in love with Cruz as well ! Being he had one parent that was a American citizen he is a natraulized citizen and to be president you must be natraul born ! It’s a fact and I can’t understand why Cruz doesn’t get this ? So power is what he is after , not following the constitution is on his mind ! You can bash me all you want out here , but facts are facts , and Cruz and others let Obama get away with fraud and being a traitor ! Not one of these servants to us would stand up and talk about all this ! Go Trump !

          1. jaybird says

            I read a bunch of articles in researching Cruz and Obummer. It looked like there was an amendment changing the requirements right before Obummer was put in office. Do your research on everything and everybody, we cannot trust anyone.

            As I understand it from various internet sites, a natural born citizen is a citizen from birth. Doesn’t this mean that Ted Cruz, born to an American mother, has her citizenship no matter where he is born? American law developed after the Revolution, and until then, the model was British law, which held that regardless where the birth occurred, the children were citizens of England. The Naturalization Act of 1790 states that children born abroad are natural born citizens. Has this been supplanted by other decisions?

            I’m no legal scholar, but doesn’t this argument about Cruz open the door to denying citizenship to all Americans born abroad, including the children of parents in military and diplomatic and business circles?

          3. scubamass says

            No what your not grasping is Cruz was born in Canada his mom was American , Cruz in 2013 gave up his Canadian citizenship , but natraul born is being born to parents of American citizens , both mom and dad not one , see Cruz has a problem because his dad was Cuban at his time of birth because dad was not a American citizen and just his mom was , makes him a natraulized citizen ! If both mom and dad were citizens and he was born outside of America yes he would be natraul born but he had just one American citizen as his mom was it . So I like Cruz but he leaves out his dad when discussing this and likes to forget that his dad was not a citizen at that time ! Yes years after his dad became a citizen but at birth it’s a different story ! Cruz is not eligible to hold office of the President of these United States of America ! It’s wrong and down right deceiving that he continues his campaign ! To me at this stage in time , I think it’s selfish and a power thing to Cruz and all good intentions are not what they are !

          4. Victor Archuleta says

            Thanks for responding. I had only the internet to rely on, and my interest is the Bible, not Constitutional law.

          5. scubamass says

            No problem , I rather read something peaceful myself . But after feeling the effect of 6 years of the Obama administration and watching the Rhino’s of the Republican Party destroy our great Country , I started researching and researching , having served in the Army and having my only son serve in the Air Force , I took all this very personal ! So to reach out to people and share information that I truly believe will educate us before we make crucial votes on the next POTUS , is crucial to my well being ! These stupid politicians are making it impossible for people like you and me to pass a good life onto our children ! These crooks and power hungry people need to be stopped ! Sir have a nice nite , you are a great American , we will stop these people and its people like you that care !

          6. Victor Archuleta says

            Thanks again. Keep on keeping on. Your attention to the details of research is needed by us.

          7. scubamass says

            Thanks Victor , sir times are weird but one thing is for sure the political men and women of our country have sold us out , we must all wake up and make these crooks serve time and never let this happen again ! Pete Santilli is a great radio show he is on different stations but I watch via you tube from 8pm to 11pm Monday thru Saturday . Check it out !

          8. Victor Archuleta says

            I’ll be watching this evening as soon as I can.

          9. Victor Archuleta says

            I just watched episode 1041, and it IS a great program. I will explore some of the other broadcasts on Saturday – and spread the word starting now. Thank you for telling me about Pete Santilli,

          10. scubamass says

            Sir thank you ! What a refreshing show ! Pete Santilli is the greatest , I heard Larry Nichoals admit to killing for the Clintons and last nite he called the FBI what a show !

          11. Victor Archuleta says

            While watching the program I found myself thinking that short wave broadcasts somehow may be in our future.. A thought prompted by the announced meeting of the local ham club.

        4. Reality99r says

          You have made the case for a pragmatic non politician businessman with superior negotiation skills, Trump. Take the politics and the personality out of it and anyone with common sense soon realizes Trump may very well be the panacea to deter our country’s slide into socialism.

        5. AKLady says

          Daddy Cruz was Castro’s supporter and best friend.
          That is the household Teddy grew up in.

        You got that right…

      3. MAHB001 says

        I would tell McConnell that it is high time that we close the Government down. That is what they do to a restaurant that has been overrun by rats.. They close it until they can get rid of the rats.

        1. Mary Sekera says

          Why not defund Planned Parenthood, anyway. It sure would save us TAXPAYERS, and the government who shells it out to them, a LOT of money!! Planned Parenthood is EVIL!! I agree……Shut down the government if they won’t DEFUND P.P.!!

          1. MAHB001 says

            Yes, defund planned parenthood….

    2. 7papa7 says

      What McConnell is saying is that we will once again bow at the alter of obama and make sure he gets everything he wants. The senate needs to remove him and replace him with a real hard core conservative who is willing to fight. Cruz would be my first choice but he is my choice for president and he is running. That being said I would like to see Mike Lee in the spot.

      1. pmxpilot says

        Mike Lee would be a great choice!

        1. jaybird says

          Have always liked/supported Mike Lee but he is not running. He is having a fight in UT because the rich want to defeat him.

      2. Valor says

        That would be nice. But there are maybe a dozen true Conservative Republican Senators total. We are screwed!

        1. MAHB001 says

          Fat lady hasn’t sung yet… They do not have our guns… The power is still with the American People, and NOT that lawless bunch in DC.

        2. 7papa7 says

          I think you are being optimistic when you say a dozen true conservatives. Maybe half that. I am hoping that the majority moderates would go along with dumping him.

      3. MAHB001 says

        I say impeach McConnell, get him out of that controlling position.

        1. 7papa7 says

          He absolutely needs to be removed. I haven’t seen any difference between him and reid.

          1. OldProfessor says

            You hit the nail on the head.

          2. MAHB001 says

    4. maxx says

      I agree totally. Looking at today’s Republican Party it is fractured. The only members that are even somewhat conservative are the ones that got in since 2009 via the Tea Party movement and many of those are now suspect. The Rino’s like McConnell, Graham, McCain, Collins etc. are a huge majority consequently siding with the liberals at every turn and handing Obama everything he wants. Congress is totally corrupt.That is what makes that party so frustrating. There really is no opposition between the republican and democrat parties. The 2014 mid-terms proved that once and for all. Conservative voters handed the GOP the majority in both houses of Congress. Did it do conservatives any good at all? He!! no, because republicans are just the little less radical arm of the democrat party. This total betrayal of conservatives has been going on for decades now. The only solution to saving America, if it is not too late already, is to take down the GOP and it won’t happen by using the ballot box since our election system is as corrupt as Congress. The rumbling you hear beneath your feet are the Founding Fathers rolling over in their graves.

      1. MAHB001 says

        1 million up votes for you…

        I believe Term limits is the only answer. Good people go into that cesspool and given enough time all are corrupted. Some like 0bama were corrupted before they entered, others like McCain, took time.

        The problem is that Conservative voters handed the GOP the majority, without realizing that the GOP is really Democrat socialists in disguise.

        McConnell, Boehner, are now exposed as socialists. They are traitors, and need to be removed from their posts. ASAP.

        1. Mike O'Mara says

          Not a very good disguise either.

        2. maxx says

          I do as well. However, term limits will never be a reality via the ballot box. Congress will never agree to give up their jobs PERIOD. I hear that it might be possible to create a new Amendment via an Article V States Constitutional Convention. This all depends on “whom” will be in control of such a convention. If it is at all related to any Congressional tinkering then it will not happen. If such an Amendment can be initiated by the states and ratified by the states then there may be a chance. I need to study more about this Article V thing.

          1. MAHB001 says

            If and I do mean IF, enough of the old guard is thrown out on their Arses, they may put in term limits. Big if.

            The convention of States does stand a chance as well.

            And if We the People still have control of the voting process, we can simply vote the old out, and impose our own version of term limits. The Republicans are doing that right now.

    5. dinkerduo says

      All of the RINOs are PROGRESSIVES—Killary Clinton said she was a PROGRESSIVE–Killary and Mc Connell are the same beast–along with Boehner–Mc Cain–Cornyn-the majority whip–Hatch–Cochran–and more are PROGRESSIVES–it don’t matter whether they have a R or a D after their name–Democrats are all PROGRESSIVE–with that goes liberalism and socialism and Marxism and communism–with Obozo ist’s also fascist and Muslim—SO UNLESS WE ELECT A TRUE CONSERVATIVE CONSTITUTIONALIST LIKE TED CRUZ WE ARE DOOMED–AND NOT SOMEONE WHO BELIEVES IN AMNESTY OF ANY KIND OR COMMON CORE!

      No one could be more disappointed in Mitch McConnell’s leadership than me…then we throw in Speaker John Boehner, and both men, who have sworn and oath to uphold our Constitution and defend our country, only seem to be making sure they do not offend this president, who is throwing us to the wolves…go figure!!!

      1. MAHB001 says

        They are socialists in conservative clothing..They are following an age old agenda put in place in the 1930s.

        Boehner and McConnell are the lowest type of humans, they are spies, and turncoats.

        15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

  2. MAHB001 says

    McConnell and Boehner are Socialists in conservative clothing. They are proof that Liberal Socialists have infiltrated and taken control of Both political parties.

    In the book, “The Naked Communist” by Cleon Skousen 1958, there is a list of 45 agenda items that
    the Soviet Union has been following to set up a socialist state in the United States.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    The Democrats have adopted the entire list and have completed the implementation of it as well.

    McConnel and Boehner are proof that the socialists have taken over both parties.

      And the remaining Republicans are sitting meekly by and allowing this to happen and then want us to back them in their running for President. Why the hell have an election when both parties are one

      1. MAHB001 says

        The BIG problem right now is that both parties are controlled by socialists. AND socialists count the votes…. If things don’t change, I fear that all of us will be disenfranchised this next time around..

        “It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”
        Joseph Stalin

        It is happening now… the socialists are deciding everything…

    4. Mike O'Mara says

      Socialists have become garden party types. Nearly every democrat who isn’t something more militant is a socialist. Calling it a progressive at most is a self deception. Our current enemies in Washington and the world are Islamists, Marxists and a few other very hardcore movements. The money and the fanaticism is mostly with the Islamists. The long term dedication is with the Marxist Stalinists. Both McConnell and Boehner are much more dangerous than socialists. Hell, just about every registered democrat and more than half the republicans are socialist. And, that statement is giving the benefit of the doubt to many republicans. None of the republican leadership or so called establishment id on our side.

      1. MAHB001 says

        I agree with you 100%.

        Actually, the ones in control are Alinsky Radicals…. 0bama, Hillary, Boehner, McConnell, Justice Roberts, Justice Kennedy, and many more. Alinsky Radicals control both parties, they are following the agenda items laid out in the book, “The Naked Communist.”

        I believe their goal is the destruction of Capitalism, and the rebuilding of America, or Fundamentally changing American into a socialist form. The problem is that any form of socialism will fall to communism…

        If you call them Alinsky Radicals or communists, you stifle the conversation. First get the Democrats to recognize that they are socialists, then tell them why they do not want to be socialists.

        1. Mike O'Mara says

          What you say may have had some relevance at one time but unfortunately those days are gone. Those democrats that aren’t yet aware that they are socialists never will be. There is no conversation to stifle. More importantly Alinsky, for good reason, failed to take consideration for Islamic terrorists and Islam itself. It changes the entire outlook on the forces for world change when the most revolutionary and violent become the moderates without any change in their methods or intentions. The most “moderate Muslim” is more dangerous then the most virulent Marxist screaming for bloody revolution. Think about their actions and consider the mind that can encompass their acts. Our ever so sophisticated political party “leaders” can’t even understand what they are facing. Obama on the other hand was educated as Islamic in Islamic schools, Marxist by his grandfather, Frank Marshal Davis and the professors he “sought out” in college, and full blown racist by his white hating mother and Rev. Wright (his failed Muslim pastor at the black liberation church he attended for 20 years) who is not only white hating but also America hating. These are facts that Obama wrote. There is also supposition that goes into other areas even more worrisome but since they are supposition I won’t go there. Even though Alinsky inspired and mutilated the minds of those you mentioned, Obama has left them all in the dust with his educators and family.
          There is little to be lost by insulting day to day democrats with the fact that they are and have been socialist.
          There is a question I would love to answer for me if you could. Why is it that whenever I enter Alinsky in any of these spell corrected sites it gets marked as a spelling error. I have taken the name direct from the title cover of his book and it is correct but the spell checkers don’t approve. Why is that?

          1. MAHB001 says

            i believe that the powers that be do not want us aware of Alinsky.
            i believe that Mr. Google only talks and confides with mr. 0bama. Not the Democrats, not the Republicans, Not the government, but ONLY 0bama…..

            Alinsky’s teachings only worked on the unsuspecting. Once his particular style of evil is exposed the Alinsky’s will have a much hard road to follow.

            They simply do not want the general public aware of Alinsky so they are more susceptible to the methods of Alinsky.

            That is only my guess.

            I hope you are wrong about the democrats not eventually fearing socialism.. That is when they wake up to the fact that they are socialists…

        We have the biggest kleptocracy this nation has ever seen. They are bleeding the peasants dry so they can continue with their royal lifestyles. Boehner and McConnel are both just as disgusting as they can be. They are in Obamao’s back pocket. We no longer have leaders, but rulers.

        1. Ernie Di Francesco says

          They’re not in OBO’s back pocket. How can you say that? They’re actually some other “private place”

      2. jaybird says

        After they failed the 1st time why vote for them a 2nd time. Some of these people have been voted in 5+ times. With computers there is no excuse for voting them back in.

      3. maxx says

        When a government is overthrown the politicians are the first ones eliminated because they can’t be trusted. How ironic that the very people that should not have been trusted will turn on their own kind.

    2. Ddenney1 says

      The problem is the ones that have to vote on term limits are the ones that are the problem!!!

      1. Randy Daniels says

        that is 100% truth and is why it will never happen. That is also the reason 99% of the time they are the only ones in the country to get raises while everyone else receives cuts in pay and benefits. MUST be a vote by the people yet going by past votes the uninformed would vote to keep the old timer idiots in charge.

        1. grunion says

          Then change the primary process that allows professional politicians only! It would be easier than a Constitutional Amendment and put the choices for representation back in the hands of the citizens. If they are not on the ticket, they can’t get a vote!

      2. maxx says

        That’s why the ballot box will never fix the problems with the government.

    3. Conservative says

      Only we the people can overcome the ‘totally uninformed voters’ and make it happen. They certainly are not going to do it themselves and as long as they are serving the people they should be re-elected. We don’t want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

      1. jaybird says

        The problem is that the majority of the politicians are the dirty water. If you have family and friends that are uninformed you should enlighten them.

      2. maxx says

        Eventually the socialists will run out of other peoples money to hand out like what is going on in Greece today. That’s when the manure really hits the fan. Socialists expire just as quickly as conservatives when there is no food or safe water. Then everybody is truly equal.

    4. John Williams says

      Well said, until we the people change our voting habits things will not change. We will get the line out of the establishment good old boys saying “you have to vote for our choice or we won’t be able to change things” sorry folks it ain’t going to happen. They said give us the house where we control the purse strings, nothing happens. They said give us the senate, with the house and the senate we can do things and nothing happens, leadership from both houses bow down and kiss A$$. What good will it do to give them everything as long as the same people are still running the show. We cannot continue to elect the same people or the same kind of people and expect different results, if we want change WE must change. I have from the beginning and will continue to support Ted Cruz, his actions have shown that he is not afraid to buck the establishment (including calling out McConnell as a liar) he has raised more money from private donations than any other candidate, he has held the moral high ground refusing to play the game of helping the GOP eat their own young, he has shown both honesty and integrity. For an interesting graphical display of where the candidates stand and a comparison please see the following link.

    2. jaybird says

      There is a motion for Boehner to vacate the Speakers seat. It was put forth by Congressman Meadows (R-NC) it is in the Rules Committee (they want it to go away), please call your Congressman and get him to support this motion. Google the Rules Committee and if your Congressman is on it put some pressure on him.

      Also there is a bill put forth by Michael Rogers (R-AL) and 4 co- sponsors # H.R. 1205 to ‘KICK THE UN OUT, CANCEL OUR MEMBERSHIP AND DE-FUND IT.. CALL your Congressman to support that bill. Some of our Representatives are beginning to stand up and we need to stand up with them. I am sure that they would like to know that we support the bills that they put forth. We need to band together for strength. I do not live in NC but I called and spoke to a staffer anyway for Congressman Meadows telling them I was behind him 100%, everyone needs to do their part and get involved. Thanks!

  7. Everett says

    Obama must be proud of his trained monkeys, mcconnell and bonehead. They are faithful servants and well worth whatever his is paying them. They surely do not represent the American people and really never have despite the lies that they tell about serving us. The rino party must really be proud of them, although they will be the death of that less than pleasing group. We don’t need two democrap parties and that is becoming very evident. Cannot cure stupid!

    1. jaybird says

      The problem is more than Obummer, who else is running the country?? Lobbyist, the rich, corporations, big donors, Unions they partake from all of them so therefore they are paying their dues by following their orders instead of the people.

  9. John Q. Public says

    Actually this is very smart !!! Because if the GOP shuts down the government they will be blamed for soldiers not getting paid and money and services going to the elderly stopping will insure that the GOP will lose the Senate and maybe even the house !!! Plus with the fact that the GOP will never win the presidency , it would set the dems up to do all the things that 80% of Americans want done and will crush the conservatives chances do giving all the taxpayers money.to the rich !!!

  10. Robert Morzenti says

    Would have been better to let a democrat win McConnell’s seat then him. At least you know where they’d be coming from. He should be booted out just like Boehner is going to be. no good assholes losers…

  11. Don Wright says

    Most essential services of government will continue to be funded and personnel paid. The real outrage in this is the claim that everything shuts down. Politics as usual must come to a resounding “end’. The “citizens” in this country deserve better and new measures must be implemented to eliminate from power the “McConnels and Boehners” who barely pay lip service to the mandate they were provided.

  12. Ddenney1 says

    Cruz called him a liar!! But that is not PC!! So he gets rimmed by the congress we voted in! How can these people keep getting elected?? APATHY and ignorance of the populace!! I guess Gruber was more right than wrong! We get offended then we forget!

  13. gutz22 says

    WTF!!! the only reason that the Gop were given the senate & retained the house was to stop Barry The Bathhouse Punk’s unconstituional criminal agenda & we are awarded with this capitulation by Turkey neck Mconnell.The ruling elite is growing out of control as they continue to ignore the will of the people aka The un washed masses.

  14. Conservative says

    McConnell never heard Republicans whining about a government shutdown. McConnell just doesn’t get how atrocious Planned Parenthood has become and how strongly Republicans and Conservatives feel about this. Therefore, we can only conclude that once again, McConnell is dancing to the tune of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Planned Parenthood. McConnell needs to resign now or start to grow a backbone. You cannot be a decent human being and refuse to stop acts that could only come from minds that embrace NAZI inhumanity. McConnell, you are old and your life or lifelong political goals are spent and your political life is not worth one of those infants being slaughtered for profit.

    Mitch , you are a true RINO, you have nothing, no guts and no brain, starting work in your state tomorrow, to amend the Constitution of KY to allow for recalling Federal elected officials, Guess who the very first one will be ?

  21. Len Tippett says

    RINO McConnell would not know the head from the butt of a mule to even know where to kick, and could not recognize a path from an eight lane highway. Why does he not just switch to the Democratic Party and make it legal. As a lifetime Conservative I almost voted for his Democratic opponent in the last election. Now I wish I had, as at least there would not have been any surprises about where she stood. But then, there really are not any surprises about where he stands either.

  22. junkmailbin says

    not on;y is he assisting wrecking the nation , he is helping to replace Obama and all liberal in congress no matter which party

  23. wildeagleone says

    Will someone please give McConnell a skirt and blouse and show him the aisle that takes him to the Democrat side of the floor. Why the hell the Republicans don’t recall this failure in leadership as well as Boehner, is unknown to me and all the republicans here in real life, that I know

  24. Trisha55 says

    McConnell is old and tired and is yesterday’s news. The Senate needs to retire him to Kentucky and get on with the serious business of correcting the mess he’s made while catering to The Big Zero. McConnell has proven he does not have the leadership skills necessary to hold his office. It takes courage and backbone and a love of freedom that he has proven are not inherent to him.

  25. rowleya says

    McConnell & GOP Gang in DC are inspiring 3rd Party status for Republicans.
    Only Party competitive with Dems is the TeaParty.
    RINOSAURUS don’t have the Clout to shut down the Gov.

  26. Richard Hennessy says

    McConnell should be replaced by someone who will do the job he refuses to do. Too bad he wasn’t defeated in the primary election. I certainly wouldn’t have voted for him had I had an opportunity to vote. He’s worse than the Speaker of the House.

  27. snowyriver says

    Is McCavwein caving to obama again?

  28. John Williams says

    A great move, show the other side your game plan from the very beginning and wonder why nothing you do gets you any respect. McConnell needs to go just like Boehner, establishment leadership is useless as are the rest of the good old boys in the GOP, eliminate these two and then get rid of the rest, the GOP is done unless they start representing the people.

  29. Frank W Brown says

    I think the repuglians are exactly the same as the democraps and they ALL have given us this…

    A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but

    not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might

    live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or

    to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might

    live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a

    check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not

    to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that

    was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from

    owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty

    F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but

    not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make

    you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is

    run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a

    wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman

    in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head

    searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but

    is run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions

    of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his

    teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class

    in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation

    that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more

    government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with

    Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free

    cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses

    but is run by idiots.

    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to

    provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment

    checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was

    diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation

    that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest

    big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a

    wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government

    forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself

    makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your government ‘cracks down’ on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    What a country!

    How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America?

    In other words: Give the worthless Lying, Thieving, POS Democrats what they want.

    1. Valor says

      That’s exactly what McConnell and Boehner are doing.

  31. Valor says

    America is governed by an entrenched ruling class currently led by miscreants like Obama and Hilary. Members of this ruling class are exempt from the rules we mere peasants must follow. RINOs like McConnell and Boehner are striving to become icons of this ruling class themselves.

  32. Graybeest1938@yahoo.com says

    How can people deal with a Kentucky Cottonmouth Snake that is taking his Orders from a Northern Nevada Viper? McConnell is worse than a RINO, in he is a friend to only McConnell causes which is Himself.
    Kentucky Elected him once again, let them deal with him. Why force the rest of the USA to deal with him?

  33. MAHB001 says

    Mr. McConnell, IT IS TIME TO SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT.

    What do you do with a restaurant that has a rat and roach infestation?

    You close it, until you have irradiated the infestation.

  34. mary says

    McConnell is selling us down the river. So,as in the children’s book Marvin K Mooney, The time has come the time is now to go, go, go I don’t care how.

  35. ronpaynter says

    Again the RINO’s are at it,ignoring the citizenry and supporting the Muslim in the Oval Office. This idiot McvConnell and his twin,Boehner,need to be booted out of any position of authority . They both need to be honest for a change and drop the”R”that appears beside their names and replace that affiliation with their true love,”D”. Talk about Benedict Arnold!!!!!

  36. Paladin says

    The congressional conflagration is coming… when the dust settlles, the ones with balls will be the only ones left!!!

  37. Larry says

    Kick these ass****’s out. When we have been lied to over and over again, Republican and democrat alike should see that the real USA is in deep trouble. What are our options?

  38. Phyllis Schultz says

    Just like Boehner, as soon as the elections are over they start betraying the voters. They both need to go.

  39. mlmaston says

    Time to remove these senile fools and put people in position who’s willing to build this Country back to it’s original glory. The question however remains…..who is right for the job?

  40. cjg says

    all you hear anymore is how this governmnet is broke, sept 15 money will go away, cash not longer
    good all worthless…. the end if the u.s. as we know it has already been gone, whether you like it or not
    we are now a 3rd world nation, the other side of the world laughs in our face because of our queer illegal muslim obama president and his entire administration. the illegal muslim obama takes these
    damn vacations that costs us millions to talk about queers over seas, and where ever else him and
    michael want to go. IF WE ARE SO DAMN BROKE WHY ARE THE SENATORS AND ILLEGAL OBAMA
    SPENDING IT LIKE NO TOMORROW, why are not these senators taking a cut back on their wages
    we haven’t gotten any, but they get 5k every year. they should have to pay their own medical
    and trips to home everyweekend on their money not ours. And when they leave office all benefits quit, including family. PAY YOUR OWN WAY LIKE THE REST OF US, YOU ARE NOT SPECIAL PEOPLE RATHER STUPID ASSES THAT CAN’T DO YOUR JOBS. WHEN THE HELL ARE YOU PEOPLE
    GOING TO PULL YOUR HEADS OUT BEFORE YOU BECOME SLAVES TO THE ILLEGAL MUSLIM OBAMA AND HIS ADMINISTRATION????

  41. LansingL@aol.com says

    I am done with the Repulicrats. I will never give another penny to the National Republican Party and I have thousands over the years . I will support individual conservative Republicans but not the establishment. We need to take out Bithc McDumbass and John Boner and replace them with people who are fighters, truth tellers and true conservatives. These people are liars and opportunists. Bye to them and John McShame, Lyndsey Goober Graham, Paul Ruin and the entire leadership of this once but no longer great party.

  42. Peatro Giorgio says

    Mitch McConnell. A true piece of shit ,lying ,thieving ,Big donor Bought and Payed for treasonous bastard.

  43. scubamass says

    He is a liberal ! He is not a leader ! He doesn’t care that you and I are fed up ! All he cares about is his Hyde !

  44. daveveselenak says

    Why those stupid hillbillies in Kentucky put “Bitch” McConnell back in POWER is beyond me. The same can be said for the “Nut-eyes” that did the same with “Crybaby” Boehner. Both of these chicken-sh^t traitors have been compromised, either threatened or bought off and now AMERIKA is paying for it! REVOLUTON will be the SOLUTION – bet on it!

  45. Dave McFarland says

    Mitch McConnell has betrayed us all. It is time for him to step down. If he does not, he may be the target of some very hostile former supporters. He has decided that keeping his position is more important than serving his country. He can go to Hell. I am sure he will have plenty of his cowardly and backstabbing friends with him.

  46. Mynickelsworth says

    The Senate Republicans definitely NEED to fire McConnell as Maj. Leader and get someone with backbone. There are at least 3 or 4 good possibilities. If you look at the comments below, you will find that several name the same name: Cruz as a possibility.

  47. Jon's On says

    Mitch needs to go along with that joke in the house call Boehner. The republicans didn’t win the senate and house so they could give in to b.o. and the democrats. These two men are so ineffective it’s a joke. They are either very stupid or they have an agenda to help the democraps. Either way they need to go!

  48. Dave McFarland says

    Listening to these despicable RINO’S and progressives simply reinforce my belief in euthanasia.

  49. larry says

    My Question: If the Republicans were to “shut down the government” again, wouldn’t Obama simply find ways to make sure that the Republicans lose more approval than they gain with the voters? Obama did it last time. Mitch may be right in his decision this time.

  50. NoRINO says

    I bet Harry Reid and McConnell had the same mother.

  51. Charles Harris says

    No surprise that this RINO is capitulating on stopping the taxpayer support for PP even before a vote on the budget is due. He is a spineless traitor to the Conservative cause. Same for Boehner. We, Conservatives are their declared enemies. In fact, these 2 losers probably hate us more than BHO.
    Unless we coalesce into a fighting force (and soon) with a strong leader, Clinton will, not only, win but will have a Democrat congress to support her and her socialist/communist agenda. This is why McConnell and Boehner pose such a risk at this time.

  52. fred says

    RINO #1 in the SENATE, close second? Cornyn! Both are known panderers to the fake potus!

  53. Niki says

    McConnell & Boehner are nothing more than Obama Disciple s.

  54. Robert A Kaufman says

    THE ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS & THE ESTABLISHMENT DEMOCRATS BOTH MAKE UP THE NEW WORLD ORDER PARTY!!! LORD JESUS COME & TAKE YOUR FOLLOWERS OUT OF HERE!!!

  55. ted j says

    mcconnell if you had one shred of decency you would take your sorry a$$ out of politics and let real Americans take over and save this country…you are a shame to the repub. party..and this great nation…

  56. RolandF says

    This sorry excuse for what is described as a conservative is a pustule on the soul of what the voters desired to have achieved when voting in November of 2014 and giving the Republicans a majority in the Senate and reinforcing the House seats held by them. It is time to get off the damn dime folks, we are extremely displeased with your inactivity and do nothing attitude. McConnell step aside and let a leader take over. The voters want a stop put into effect this White House and the Democrats in particular. That is why they are following Trump and his rhetoric. He may be un PC but at least he is not standing on the sideline wringing his hands and saying don’t rock the boat like McCXonnell is.

  57. commonesnes says

    Conservative social causes are not important to the Republican Establishment because they are not important to the corporate donors and lobbyists that wine and dine them and line their pockets. Social issues are a way for the Republican Establishment to maintain the loyalty of the conservative electorate base. The conservative base, otherwise receive nothing but some scraps from the table at which the Republican Establishment, it’s corporate donors and lobbyists dine in style. The Republican Establishment and their benefactors use fear of the Democrats liberal social agenda, fear of high taxes and fear of wealth distribution to retain the support of the conservative base electorate, who otherwise would be unsatisfied with the scraps that they are thrown from the Republican Establishment’s table of abundance. These fears coupled with the scraps they are thrown to date has stopped the conservative base from seriously rebelling against the Republican Establishment. The conservative base needs to unite and to overcome these fears if it is ever going to forcefully push the fat hogs of the Republican Establishment, their corporate donors and lobbyists from the trough. They have a lot to lose. They will not move away from the trough willingly and will push back fiercely. They enjoy their current position atop the GOP as it allows them line their pockets and to enjoy the adrenalin rush that accompanies the exercise of power.

  58. albertbryson says

    Well, the Republican base want our politicians to stand up and oppose Obama and the Democrats 100%. Apparently they disagreed. it is time to throw these idiots out of office and put in people who will stand up for our beliefs 100%.

  59. Jean Witte says

    Why are our leaders so afraid of a government shutdown? It has happened before and hardly anybody noticed…the government employees just got more paid holidays, and the president couldn’t spend us into oblivion…at least for a while. What IS the big deal???

  60. ArizonaMilitiaDotCom says

    The Abortionists, those who profit from the industrial-scale practice of this form of murder, and all of their witless enablers are the kind who quite clearly view people’s lives merely as commodities. They rationalize away the murder of the unborn so easily that it has become quite clear to me that they will just as easily rationalize infanticide and cannibalism . That’s just the kind of douchebags that these people truly are.

    If we extend their Libtard worldview to its ultimate end-point, then we must conclude that, if unborn childrens’ lives have no value, then certainly neither do the lives of those who would murder them, nor the lives of those who would seek to profit from industrial-scale murders of the innocent.

    Following their own line of reasoning, all of the Abortionists, those who profit from this grisly abomination, and all of their witless Enablers should be stood up together against the wall with the tiny little holes in it after the next Revolution begins.

    If they want to stand together, then I say let them do so there. In fact, move them to the head of the line once the Revolution begins.

    Not a day sooner, unfortunately, but once the Obamunists begin their Purge against the Patriots of our nation, there should be a simultaneous Purge conducted against all of our contemptible, degenerate, Libtard reprobates. And the Abortionists and those who profit from this abominable practice should definitely go first.

    I am not advocating such violence today, but I am rather making the same observation that Jonathan Swift made regarding the same subject of the lives of children. Ergo, if the lives of the unborn have no value, then neither should the lives of those who would murder the innocent, nor the lives of those who profit from those murders.

    These people absolutely need to be done away with once the next Revolution begins. Be sure to have plenty of ammo on hand before that day arrives, folks. You can bet that the ObamaZombies would just as easily rationalize the murder of millions of *us*, just as they have rationalized the untold thousands of grisly murders of innocence yet unborn.

    In fact, within the grips of the widespread starvation that the next Revolution would undoubtedly unleash, the Obamunists probably already have plans in place to cook us and eat us. They probably have their “Cannibal Cookbook” ready and waiting to be printed up. If you have not already stocked up on food and ammo by now, then prepare yourself for a meal from which you will never recover. You will wind up either as the diner, or as the dinner.

    Buy More Λmmo. Doing so is *still* the only viable treatment for ODDD (Obamunist Douchebag Distrust Disorder). Doing so is also the only remaining path to Liberty. Support your local Militia and/or your local Oath Keepers. This won’t end pretty, Λmerica.

  61. MARYSWEET says

    mcconnell just did it again. He is just a democrat in sheep’s clothing. He is such a traitor and will do whatever obama tells him to do. He must go. He is a disgrace to career politicians.

  62. Alex G Bennington says

    We gave the Republicans the ball in 2014 and they passed it right to the Dems. Our government apparently has forgotten that they represent the people. Washington needs an enema! The few congressman and senators who do care about the USA and her people are far and few in between. We need to start creating a list of Patriots so that we will be prepared when certain factions start invading our land like locusts. Is anyone up to this job? … contact me.

    1. MAHB001 says

      The Rino’s in control of the Republican party ARE Democrats. They are turncoats, and can not be trusted.

      1. Goodforall says

        Absolutely 100% correct! And leading the way are those spineless men w/o any cahonies McConnell and Boehner.

  63. Patriot says

    McConnell you’re a incompetent , liar schmuck enjoy your last term.

  64. Mark Clemens says

    Frank Gifford passed away.

  65. Mark Clemens says

    Heres the GOP’S problem w/Trump the TPA. This gives this and the next president a lot of power in trade deals. Trump has all but said he would impose tariffs on China and Mexico. Wall Street INVESTED billions for a favorable trade deal for more cheap Asian labor. Trump will mess that all up, to create jobs in the USA, not Asia. That means Wall Street will have waisted all that contribution money. Just like DC waits our tax money………

  66. JIM DALLY says

    please find a goat and get some ball for McConnell he is tied to OBANA AND THE TRIBE AT THE WAIST.

  67. JIM DALLY says

    PLEASE GO TO THE FARM AND GET MCCONNELL SOME DONKEY BALLS SO HE AND OBAMA HAVE THE SAME DUMB ASS IDEAS

  68. wonduh says

    Mitchell and Boehner are not conservatives; one is from KY and the other is a wino. And who in congress should be afraid of them? Someone knows the dirt on everyone. Pathetic!

  69. Cami W says

    The last 2 presidential elections I’ve worked hard at our Republican headquarters, making hndreds of phone calls, knocking on doors, in 2014, help elect Republicans by landslides. I’m finished, yesterday I wrote to the Constitution party’s heaquarters and going to help them put a headquarters here in our twin city of Texas and Arkansas. Democrats and Republicans same goals, time for a real Constitution party!

  70. David Jones says

    McConnell YOU ARE NO CONSERVATIVE! I WILL NOT VOTE REP. AGAIN UNTIL YOUR REMOVED! WHY WOULD ANYONE AT THE MOMENT? BECAUSE OF YOU AND BONEHEAD A VOTE FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS THE SAME VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRAT! AMERICA IS BROKEN! AND WHEN IT ALL FALLS APART(AND IT WILL) WE CAN START TO FIX IT!

  71. louis greene says

    McConnell needs to be Fired along with Boener

  72. American says

    Between the two, Boehner and McConnell, it’s hard to tell which one is worse. Both need to go.

  73. carla AMERICAN says

    I thought this was about government funding? People call,write,text,email your Representatives. and DEMAND NO GOVERNMENT FUNDING! We are paying for third world countries that have been receiving billions since 1960. Now we’re paying to kill babies, illegal alien criminals, billion dollar vacations and shopping sprees. Our children eat slop at school while we pay for the kenyan ‘s kids to get chef prepared meals. Veterans are dying while Iranians are harassing military families.we pay for our military to be armed to protect us but the only one’s allowed guns are the illegal aliens to kill Americans! STOP IT NOW! NO FUNDING, NO OBAMA AND GOVERNMENT! They owe us!

  74. organic girl says

    Shut up, McConnell.
    Just shut up and go away.
    You’re as bad as Obama or worse.

  75. Chris Robinette says

    What the senate needs is a McConnellectomy. His total removal from the senate.

  76. Robert Trusty says

    These guys are either being black mail or they are making a lot of money not to vote for the American people and one thing we do know for sure all they are doing is picking up their check every week and by god I think it is time we fire these guys who are not doing their job that we elected them to do.

  77. fred says

    I would love to see a login sheet of McConnell’s visitors and people he associates with for the last several years, he is lining his pockets on the backs of all of us! Shame on you Mitch for being one of the most divisive and harmful people to come along, and you should be ashamed at your treason and complying with your master from kenya! You have sold us down the river too many times making empty promises and never delivering ! You are a RINO and a turncoat stuffing lobbyist dollars in your bank accounts and telling us we should be doing more now that we have both houses of Congress! Shame on you, karma is a bitch!

  78. Patriot1955 says

    When is somebody going to talk about the 18 trillion debt load!

  79. Sidney Hobden says

    THROW HIS SORRY ASS OUT !!!

  80. Chris Don Tremaine says

    I would like to know why shutting down the country is so feared. In fact it doesn’t shutdown the government. It’s like what Reagan said, why do we even have “non essential workers” that go on furlow during the government “shutdown”. It is a tool to force your point of view. Don.
