Murdock: Mitch McConnell Folded to Democrat’s Debt-Limit Con

Carol M. Highsmith, via Wikimedia Commons

McConnell, Kentucky’s senior senator, is bailing out Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D, New York). McConnell will deliver enough GOP votes to help Democrats increase the national debt limit by $480 billion through December. The Senate reportedly will vote today on this bipartisan fiscal-recklessness pact.

If McConnell planned to collapse beneath Schumer’s pressure, he should have done so quietly. Instead, McConnell very dramatically persuaded Senate Republicans unanimously to ignore Schumer’s and President Biden’s cheap default drama and, instead, invite him, Pelosi, and Biden to push Democrats to boost borrowing thresholds on their own.

McConnell held a news conference to highlight GOP unity. Having displayed resolve and rallied the Republican base, McConnell now whips out his oft-deployed white flag, just as the battle began. This will enrage and demoralize Republicans who, just days ago, were girding for a major fight over fiscal responsibility.

Had McConnell’s nerve not vanished like a sandcastle at high tide, he could have forced Democrats to walk and chew an entire turkey at the same time. Grappling with the debt limit would have disoriented through much of October, even as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D – California) scrambles to pass the $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill and Biden’s $3.5 trillion Build Back Better tax-hike and welfare boondoggle before her self-imposed Halloween deadline. Mitch’s debt-limit giveaway lets Democrats drop that Butterball and march single-mindedly toward their socialist utopia.

I have stopped donating through WINRED — I no longer trust the Republican party.

The Republican party utterly FAILED to protect election integrity during the run up to the 2020 election. 

DUMP THE RINOs in leadership positions! Their continued presence is a signal that the party does not care about protecting American liberty and values.

The party needs to show serious progress toward restoring election integrity.

Until then, I will be very careful and frugal with my donations.

Robert, I even have a problem with that. Last go around, I contributed directly to 4 or 5 proven conservatives – nothing to national or state GOP coffers. Now, I get dozens of requests EVERY DAY from “candidates” I never heard of. Every one of them start out claiming I am a “top contributor” to that person. Then there is the spiel of WHY I should contribute.
It appears that just ONE contribution puts you on the sucker list for every person in the country running for an office.

If you want to be sure of election integrity, then you should insist on Independent audits people who’s loyalty is to accurate data and not to any partisan cause. Democracy Counts, an independent, non-partisan, nonprofit tech company, has developed software and processes that allow anyone anywhere in America to independently and in real time audit their local election machinery to test for error and fraud. If discrepancies are discovered, then the data can be taken to court quickly to request an injunction pending an investigation of the discrepancies. The system has been used successfully in Florida by an audit committee co-chaired by a Democrat and a Republican.

DORA – exactly! Any donation to an organization such as DNC, RNC, WINRED, etc , required by federal law, is divvied out to EVERY candidate of the party listed.
For example; contribute $100 to the RNC. Indicate a specific candidate to get the donation. THAT candidate PLUS McConnell, PLUS Mutt Rummey, PLUS every other GOP candidate gets a percentage of that $100.

Times are upside down. The Democrat machine is now an enemy of America as it was founded. The salaries of those “serving us” in government, whose mouths are fed by our taxes, are either actively undermining the country’s values (Democrats) or wringing their hands and making “harrumph” noises while they let it happen (Republicans).—both parties a waste of money and a blight on history. The Democrat argument that crumbled McConnell was “…a default now would disrupt and weaken the country.” Ye gods! Mr. Biden has already done that with the Dems blessing! REPUBLICANS, GET A BACKBONE! FORGET OPTICS! YOUR INERTIA AND LACK OF CHARACTER IS MAKING YOU COMPLICIT IN THE DEMISE OF AMERICA!

Those who have the lowest poll numbers seem to win the elections over and over again. McConnell keeps getting reelected and I can only guess that Dominion has a hand in it. Pelosi, Graham and others are never worried about securing their seats and now we know why. McConnell did everything he could to block Trump and be continues to be a thorn in America’s side.
