Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) is doing all the heavy lifting in his campaign to have all federal judges agree with his Right Wing values — and he feels really self-righteous about that.
McConnell is best known for blocking every piece of legislation ever sponsored by Senate Democrats. He gleefully calls himself the Grim Reaper ((https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/06/politics/mitch-mcconnell-gun-control/index.html).
He recently broke his heavy-lifting shoulder at his Old Kentucky Home and, according to associate solitary reporter Susanna Sherman, he refused to be treated in Louisville by any physician who likes the Affordable Care Act (ditto for the Bluegrass State’s junior senator, Tea Party adherent Rand Paul, who recently had surgery on his ribs after he got into a nasty fight with his neighbor in Bowling Green).
Democrats will never forgive McConnell for preventing hearings on President Obama’s nominee to succeed Justice Antonin Scalia. Instead, we got hyper-conservative Neil Gorsuch on SCOTUS, and then Brett Kavananaugh; and if RBG were (unexpectedly) to call a gatekeeper at Trump’s White House to announce her retirement, McConnell, applying a very high dose of cynicism and hypocrisy, will insist on pushing through another Gorsuch or Kavanaugh to sit on the highest Court in the land — maybe even Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas).
After dozens of people were murdered by young white men over the weekend, all eyes are on McConnell in a pressure campaign to shame him into allowing the Senate to vote on sensible gun control legislation such as background checks. But the Senate is in recess, and McConnell can just wait out the clock, even though Congressional Democrats such as Speaker Pelosi and Minority Leader Schumer are calling for the portentous McConnell to bring the Senate back into session as of yesterday.
Amid all this, Trump’s close personal friend Wayne LaPierre, the top gun of the NRA, just told associate solitary reporter Keith Coleman that he’s left the Republican Party.
“When Trump addressed the nation yesterday," LaPierre told Coleman, “he had no business overriding our agenda of promoting gun ownership for every white American. That’s why I’m forming my own political party along with my close personal friend Dudley Brown of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners.”
Brown’s RMGO is well known in Colorado and elsewhere as a gun rights organization much more extreme than the NRA (the NRA HQ, which, mercifully, has its own internal issues, was surrounded last night by protestors).
LaPierre and Brown have filed papers with the Federal Election Commission to form their An Assault Weapon In Every Household Party.
DNC Chair Tom Perez and associate solitary reporter Melissa Smith have ably recruited Amy McGrath to defeat McConnell next year.
McGrath was the first woman Marine Corps pilot to fly the F/A-18 on a combat mission. She flew 89 combat misisons, bombing al Qaeda and the Taliban. She almost defeated Republican incumbent Congressman Andy Barr in Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District last year.
ASR Smith has conducted extensive polling on behalf of McGrath and the DNC. She told us a mere five minutes ago that all Republican women voters in Kentucky and over half the Republican male voters in Kentucky are actively campaigning for McGrath.
“The Grim Reaper will be going back to Kentucky in January 2021,” she told us, along with his wife, Trump’s Transporation Secretary, Elaine Chao."
