"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, McConnell’s acts are that of a Russian stooge and a traitor to America. Further, McConnell, is acting as a Russian Asset, quite willing to do anything to aid and to abet our sworn enemies so that he and our Russian-appointed president retain his power. And McConnell seems quite willing to let foreign actors invade and attack our country, just so that he and his fellow Russian-Republican stooges can 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.
It has been reported that Moscow Mitch does not like his new nickname. In fact, he gave a speech on the floor of the Senate chamber denouncing it. Well, if he doesn’t like being referred to as Moscow Mitch, he should stop acting like it. If he still has any allegiance to this country, which I seriously doubt, let it bring to the floor all of the bills passed by the House to protect our future elections from Russian interference and the interference of any other enemies of America.
If he proves his allegiance to America by putting these bills forward for debate on the Senate floor, then we can stop calling him Moscow Mitch. If, on the other hand, he proves that he and our president and their Russian-backed party are beholding to Russian influence, as I believe he will, by not allowing any of these bills that would protect America come forward, then the name of Moscow Mitch should not only stick to him forever after, he should be renounced and chastised by every American who loves our country. A traitor is a traitor and an enemy is an enemy. If McConnell continues to betray our country, the nickname of Moscow Mitch, like that of Benedict Arnold and others whose stains outlast the time in which they betrayed their country, should be emblazoned on his tombstone, in all of the history books, as a name that will live in infamy.
The hatred that is espoused daily from the loathsome White Nationalist creature who became our 45thpresident, is now spreading hate and violence throughout our land, quite awash in guns thanks to the Republicans and the NRA. In the last two days, two mass killings have taken place, both killers being racist white followers of their Racist in Chief. And rather than tone down his hate-filled rhetoric His Assholinessonly spouts and spreads more hatred, and more contempt for the Rule of Law. Clearly, His Assholiness is also a Russian appointee, precisely in the same mold of Moscow Mitch. These traitors to the Constitution, to the Rule of Law, and to any remaining sanity in our society, must be removed soon. Indeed, the current president presents a clear and present danger to our country, to our national security, and to our democracy. He, like the Russian asset Moscow Mitch, must be removed as soon as possible.
The call for the impeachment of the unworthy and unlawful monster in the Oval Office is finally growing in the House of Representatives, such that a majority of the Democratic members of the House now support an impeachment hearing. Most if not all of the Republican members of the House (i.e., the Russian Republicans), appear to want to stay onboard the Trumptanic as it veers toward the ultimate iceberg; history should judge them, too, as traitors to America and the American way, even as they sink while still happily aboard their Racist and White Nationalist flagship, a most deserved outcome.
His Assholiness, the Racist in Chief, has turned the “White” House into a symbol of pride for Fascist White Nationalists everywhere. Now, on a nearly daily basis, we see his racist killers using their assault weapons to kill as many of their fellow Americans as possible.
The upcoming election of 2020 is going to be a watershed moment for our country. If Americans want to see daily carnage in a nation swimming with insanity and guns, by all means vote for the Russian Republicans and vote for the White Nationalist pig now snorting from the bully pulpit. You, too, can joins the Russians who want to see America sink into the abyss. OR you can vote for America, for decency, for the Rule of Law, for the expulsion of Moscow Mitch and every other Russian-backed traitor, be they Republican or Democrat (I’m looking at you, Tulsi Gabbard!). You can vote for hate and White Nationalism and turn our current president into an Russian-appointed Emperor who will never need to step down or ever hold national elections again. OR you can vote for a return to sanity, to civility, to Rule of Law. That is the choice, clear and simple. Just what in God’s name, do Americans want our country to become? We can be Fascist or we can be Free but we cannot be both. We can be a nation where there are more guns than people OR we can decide we have had enough of the violence, the racism, the hatred, the contempt for law, but we cannot continue to be both, a nation torn apart from within, divisible and hate-filled.
We can continue to drown in guns and killing OR we can stop the violence by choosing to get most of the guns off the street, but we can't have both situations. It's either the right to guns or the right to life, but you cannot have both!
We can continue to allow the occupant of the Oval Office to shout his racist hatred across all of our media, or we can choose to have his sorry ass thrown out of office. We can keep the outlaw president we now have OR we can send him to prison where he deservedly belongs as soon as possible.
At the very least, every thinking American should want impeachment hearings to begin immediately, before our Russian-appointed president is allowed to spew any more of his racist bile and before any more innocent Americans are shot down at the local mall, the theatre, or your local public school.
In essence, we can choose hatred or we can follow our Better Angels and choose love. But we can’t go forward into the future, holding both in our hearts.
Right now, Russia has us right where they always wanted us: at each other's throats and killing each other.
