Mitch McConnell is a Russian asset.
This doesn’t mean he’s a spy, but neither is it a flip accusation. Russia attacked our country in 2016. It is attacking us today. Its attacks will intensify in 2020. Yet each time we try to raise our defenses to repel the attack, McConnell, the Senate majority leader, blocks us from defending ourselves.
Let’s call this what it is: Unpatriotic. The Kentucky Republican is, arguably more than any other American, doing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s bidding.
Robert Mueller sat before Congress this week warning that the Russia threat “deserves the attention of every American.” He said “the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in our election is among the most serious” challenges to American democracy he has ever seen. “They are doing it as we sit here, and they expect to do it during the next campaign,” he warned, adding that “much more needs to be done in order to protect against these intrusions, not just by the Russians but others as well.”
Not three hours after Mueller finished testifying, Mark Warner (D-Va.), vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, went to the Senate floor to request unanimous consent to pass legislation requiring presidential campaigns to report to the FBI any offers of assistance from agents of foreign governments. Representing Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) objected.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) then attempted to move a bill that would require campaigns to report to the FBI contributions by foreign nationals. Again Hyde-Smith, acting on behalf of McConnell, objected.
After that, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) tried to force action on bipartisan legislation, written with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and supported by Sens. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.), protecting lawmakers from foreign cyber-attacks. “The majority leader, our colleague from Kentucky, must stop blocking this common-sense legislation and allow this body to better defend itself against foreign hackers,” he said.
“I object,” repeated McConnell’s lackey Hyde-Smith yet again.
As Mr. Milbank’s column went on to explain:
The next day, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the minority leader, asked for the Senate to pass the Securing America’s Federal Elections Act, already passed by the House, that would direct $600 million in election assistance to states and require backup paper ballots.
McConnell himself responded this time, reading from a statement, his chin melting into his chest, his trademark thin smile on his lips. “It’s just a highly partisan bill from the same folks who spent two years hyping up a conspiracy theory about President Trump and Russia,” he said. “Therefore, I object.” McConnell also objected to another attempt by Blumenthal to pass his bill.
Pleaded Schumer: “I would suggest to my friend the majority leader: If he doesn’t like this bill, let’s put another bill on the floor and debate it.”
But McConnell has blocked all such attempts, including:
A bipartisan bill requiring Facebook, Google and other Internet companies to disclose purchasers of political ads, to identify foreign influence.
A bipartisan bill to ease cooperation between state election officials and federal intelligence agencies.
A bipartisan bill imposing sanctions on any entity that attacks a U.S. election.
A bipartisan bill with severe new sanctions on Russia for its cybercrimes.
McConnell has prevented them all from being considered — over and over again. This is the same McConnell who, in the summer of 2016, when briefed by the CIA along with other congressional leaders on Russia’s electoral attacks, questioned the validity of the intelligence and forced a watering down of a warning letter to state officials about the threat, omitting any mention of Russia.
Clearly the Russian-appointed president (which I shall now refer to as His Assholiness—since ‘He’ now believes himself to be our King and quite above the Rule of Law that generations of Americans, both Republican and Democrat, once held sacred and fought and died for) wants Russian help and the help of other foreign governments in our next election!
And McConnell, is quite willing to do anything to stop any attempt to thwart Russian interference. Further, McConnell, the Russian Asset, is willing to do anything to aid and abet our foreign enemies so that the president and he himself as well as all of the Russian-Republicans retain their power.
Let’s be clear: Russia attacked our Democracy in 2016. They are attacking America now. And they plan to do so again in the election of 2020. And the Russianpublicans, in particular Mitch McConnell, and His Assholiness, are doing everything they can to welcome and give aid and comfort to our enemies, both foreign and domestic.
Indeed, if a war had been officially declared against Russia when they first began their plan of attack against our democracy in 2014, most of currently elected Republican members in the House of Representatives and the US Senate, particularly Senator McConnell, along with His Assholiness, our 45thpresident and our once-and-future Emperor, could now potentially be found guilty of treason, and face possible execution for their crimes against our country.
Let that statement sink in for a minute.
Joe Scarborough during a broadcast of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC earlier this week gave Mitch McConnell the well-deserved nickname of Moscow Mitch. This should and must stick as McConnell’s new moniker because he is, indeed, as Dana Milbank pointed out in his column, a “Russian Asset.” And he is anti-American and un-American, and a traitor to our country in nearly every respect.
As I said in my latest blog last Sunday, America is clearly at a crossroads. The contemptible pile of excrement that now passes as our president has in his own filthy and vile way exposed all of the evil and corruption within our government an in particular within his Russian-supported Republican cabal. His Assholiness has exposed the vile and dirty backroom deals, utilizing Russian oligarch laundered money, the foreign influence of the murderous Saudi Regime, and the filthy hidden money that has flowed to the Repugnant Ones since the Republican-appointed US Supreme Court—the best Court you can buy—passed the Citizens Uniteddecision, encouraging a deeper and darker swamp in Washington, D.C.
Most of the Republicans in Washington will, I have little doubt, be exposed to have accepted illegal contributions from Russian Oligarchs, funneled through the equally corrupt NRA.
His Assholiness, the Corrupter in Chief and Putin’s Puppet, has so corrupted Washington with his misogyny and pussy-grabbing ways, that all of his pedophile and sex-trafficking friends have been forced to crawl out of the various holes in which they were hiding and brought out into the light of day. How many other American presidents in our history could say that five of their closest friends and allies are felons? Only His Assholiness!
How many presidents could say that among his best friends were two pedophiles currently rotting in prison? Only His Assholiness!
And how many could say that they have been accused of raping a 13-year-old girl (supposedly at Jeffrey Epstein’s Manhattan Mansion in the early 1990s)? Only His Assholinesshas such a distinguished record among all of our presidents.
More than this, if that were not enough, His Assholiness, the Racist in Chief, has turned the “White” House into a symbol of pride for Fascist White Nationalists everywhere.
The upcoming election of 2020 is going to be a watershed moment for our country.
Forget the normal issues of a presidential year: the economy, health care, etc. The election in November 2020 is going to be about much more fundamental and existential issues. For example, just what in God’s name, do Americans want our country to become: A symbol for White Nationalist Fascism throughout the entire world or to again become the symbol of Freedom and Tolerance that we once were?
In 2020, Americans will once and for all, have to decide first and foremost, whether they give a damn about saving themselves and their country by fighting for exercising their right to vote. Every single American, if they have the right to vote, MUST exercise their right to vote. Period. No Excuses. No more ignoring of elections. No more sitting on the sidelines. Quite frankly, this will be an election like none other of the modern era. It will be a CHOOSE OR DIE moment. Americans have fought and died for us to have the right to vote. There is simply no excuse for hanging back or sitting on the sidelines while Moscow Mitch and His Assholiness hand our country over to Vladimir Putin.
I’m saying it now and as loudly as I can:
EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN OVER THE AGE OF 18 MUST VOTE IN NOVEMBGER 2020 AND EVERY ELECTION THEREAFTER! PERIOD. NO EXCUSES. GET YOUR LAZY ASSES TO THE POLLS AND PROTECT OUR DEMOCRACY OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES!
Once you are at the polls, you must make a basic decision: Do you vote for the 3 R’s—Russia, Racism, and Rape—or do you vote for the Democrats? And I am quite serious about this. That is how dire our circumstances now are. You will be choosing between a Dictatorship or the Democrats. Period. No more equivocation. You will be called to make a moral choice, not between Republican and Democrat, but between Right and Wrong.
What path should our country take going forward? And before casting that vote, think long and hard about the future you want for your children and grandchildren.
I pray to God that we send Moscow Mitch, His Assholiness, and all of the Russian Republicans back to Russia where they belong.
