Turtle McConnells Multitude Of Political Sins

December 16, 2019

 

"Mitch McConnell finally has the power he’s longed for since he was a 22-year-old intern for Sen. John Sherman, but his ruthless march to become Senate majority leader has seen him abandon almost all of his stated principles — and earned him a lot of enemies.

 

The Kentucky Republican has been unpopular in his home state for years, but last summer saw his approval rating plunge to 18 percent after MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough tarred and feathered him with the nickname “Moscow Mitch,” and he’s increasingly seen as the man who sold America,” reported Rolling Stone.

 

“For so many years, McConnell has seemed maddeningly invincible,” wrote Bob Moser in a lengthy magazine profile. “But now, just a few years after achieving his lifelong goal of becoming Senate majority leader, it appears that every political sin the man has committed, on his relentless march to power, is coming back to haunt him at once.”

 

“He has welcomed infamy, and now it has arrived on its own terms, bringing with it a previously unthinkable possibility,” he added. “Could 40 years’ worth of devil’s bargains finally be catching up with Mitch McConnell?”

 

Moser catalogs the Senate majority leader’s political sins, dating back to his swiftly broken campaign promises to back abortion and collective bargaining rights in a 1977 race for Jefferson County judge executive, up to the shady deal earlier this year to lift sanctions on a Russian oligarch whose company Rusal announced a $200 Million investment in Kentucky.

 

“For all the damage hes inflicted on American democracy, for all the political corpses he’s left in his wake, Mitch McConnell has never betrayed an ounce of shame. To the contrary, like the president he now so faithfully serves, McConnell has always exuded a sense of pride in the lengths to which hes gone to achieve his ambitions and infuriate his enemies.”

McConnell Hopes $1 Billion Kentucky Bribe Blinds Voters

December 26, 2019

 

"Moscow Mitch McConnell is tempering some of the heat he's taking, back home, over his completely unprincipled collusion with Donald Trump on impeachment as he usually does—with bribes for voters. The Senate majority leader put a point on the fact that he has all the power by getting nearly $1 billion worth of tax cuts and federal spending for Kentucky.

 

He touted the achievement in a press conference in Louisville, The Hill reported, saying he gives Kentucky "an advantage to punch above its weight" by being one of the four people who make decisions on where the money goes. And he made it entirely about his reelection campaign. "I saw a commercial from my likely opponent indicating that I was all that was wrong with Washington," he said, referring to an ad put out by Democrat Amy McGrath. "So I have a question for her here as we go into the new year: In what way would Kentucky have been better off without any of these items that I put in the year-end spending bill?"

 

Notice he doesn't talk about the $200 Million, from Russia, he helped engineer for the state by lifting sanctions against the country. Maybe he doesn't want Kentucky remembering that he's greased the skids for Putin's pals to start taking over the state's economy."
