I often tell writers to avoid phrases in the vein of “To no one’s surprise”, but in this case I think it’s more than appropriate.
To no one’s surprise, the GOP establishment, led by perennial McFailure Mitch McConnell and his fellow Senate eunuchs, is preparing to sell out Republican voters and the country at large.
As readers know, the “red wave” fizzled spectacularly (in large part due to McConnell and Co.), leaving only a small margin of victory in the House. The Senate will remain in Democrat hands.
But that’s still a big deal, or at least it should be. Handing the Speaker’s gavel to the GOP means they control the purse strings. At least, that’s what it would mean, if the Republican Party were an actual political party intent on serving their voters.
But it’s not.
Republican voters fought hard to win back control of the House to take away insane spending control from the Democrats.
Mitch McConnell is on the verge of taking away House Republican’s power of the purse next year by making a dirty deal with the Dems to pass a Dem Omnibus bill!

McConnell & Co. Selling You Down The River
Here’s what I’m talking about: thanks to over a decade now of “governing by crisis” – in which the government doesn’t even bother with budgets, but instead of creates a series of fake crises with short-term spending bills – we are once again faced with a funding deadline.
So there are two options. The GOP could either 1) force a short-term spending bill, since the new Congress will be seated in less than a month, headed by the new GOP House; or 2) immediately surrender to the Democrats and pass a longer-term, giant “omnibus” spending bill.
Can you guess which route the Constant Failure Party is taking?

Of course you were right. Led by McConnell, the Vichy Republican Surrender Caucus is scrambling to give Democrats everything they want.
Oh, you voted for a Republican House, you say? Too bad.
You want Republicans to stop constantly placating the Democrats and actually fight for you? Too. Damn. Bad.
Just yesterday, McFailure told reporters, “I think we’re very close to getting an omnibus appropriations bill.”
Government Executive reports in a glaring headline: Lawmakers Announce Bipartisan Breakthrough on Full-Year Omnibus Spending Bill.
The best part, as Government Executive notes, is that “negotiators” refuse to say how much they’re agreeing to spend.
It’s so absurd, someone woke up fellow Surrender Republican Kevin McCarthy from his nap for him to meekly object.
McConnell is closer to getting his Omnibus — incl $38 billion for Ukraine, kneecapping GOP House majority in 2023. The “negotiator” is 88yo retiring @SenShelby. Zero accountability.

Everywhere you look, Democrat crooks, their campaign arm in the media, and useful idiots on social media will tell you that DEMOCRACY IS UNDER ASSAULT.
Yet here they are, silent on a secret team of Congressmen secretly negotiating among themselves on secret numbers.
Newsflash bozos: the way Democracy works is that all Members of Congress – those who are elected by the people to represent them – get a say in how our money is spent. In a collapsing late empire, a handful of Super Congressmen cut the rest of the people’s representatives out of the process, and say “take it or leave it.”
And because nearly all Congressmen are abject cowards or worse, whatever the final deal is, it will pass.
In other words, you don’t live in a representative democracy. But enough about that – back to the Vichy Republicans.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but the Republicans have all the leverage. They can very, very easily tell the Democrats to get bent and wait a mere few weeks to pass a larger spending bill.
But they aren’t doing that. Why not?
I’ll let you in on a little secret – the Republican Party isn’t even a loyal opposition party. If they were, they’d at least pretend they cared about delivering for their voters sometimes. They can’t even be bothered with such things.
No, the truth is, the Republican Party is just the Democrats’ farm team. They agree fundamentally on nearly all matters with the Democrats. You’ve heard the old term about how Republicans are just progressives “going the speed limit.”
That was a few years ago. Now they just travel in the same direction at the same speed.

Mitch has been a sorry excuse for a Republican for years. Time and again he has sold America and the GOP down the river. Its time GOP Senators realize is is about as bad for the country and party as Romney.
So we have to await approval to post factual news. Trump has endorsed McCarthy. I sthis like censorship or shadow banning?
And Trump has just endorsed McCarthy for speaker
We are suppose to be a republic, not a democracy. Europe has a democracy, we have a republic. I think you will find out the difference if you pass this bill as written. We the People will make sure you are fired and the fellow RINOS are ousted from the party. You are despicable and so are your little RINO helpers. You all are disgusting reminders of why we need to clean the swamp and you are part of it!
Once again, you have it wrong! Once elected, they represent ALL of the people in their district, not just the people that voted for them. It is their job to uphold the constitution and bill of rights, and in doing that, do what is right for America!
This is what happens when elected for life pimping sociopaths hold office for too long !! McTurtle is another reason bfor be term limits
What Mitch is hoping, is for a mass exodus (to ignominy) of MAGA from “his” GOP.
McTurtle has only done one thing right in his many years as a RINO and that was to save us from Meritless Garland landing a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. Otherwise he is like a post turtle with no idea how he got u there and now that he is up there he has no idea what to do.
Dirty Mitch is the reason I’m now an Independent voter. Tired of coward Republicans!
…In which case the GOP would seem to have outlived its usefulness.
Well, if you believe there’s absolutely no difference between whether or not Soviet Democrats or really lousy Republicans are in power, then I guess you could believe that to be true.
The Red Tsunami. LOLOL. C’mon, GOP. Blow smoke up my britches leg again. Nothing good ol’ Mitch McChina does is surprising anymore. So that’s what he does; nothing.
First thing the HOUSE REPUBLICANS SHOULD DEMAND IS A COGNITIVE TEST FOR BIDEN! IF HE FAILED IT! Be sure there are witness to this test. Now if he fails the test everything he sign into laws be REMOVED! We all know McConnell is a RINO AS WELL AS MCCARTHY! One reason why I do not believe anything out of EITHER MOUTH!
Why not say they should demand that everybody gets a unicorn to ride to their government offices each day?
“Should demand” is not the same as “authorized to demand”…
This doesn’t surprise me one bit. God is in charge and since the U.S.A. has blasphemed Him over and over again; threw Him under the bus; removed Him from schools, court houses and court yards – He now is having His say. Just like in the Old Testament times God is taking out His anger on the United States Of America. If it weren’t for Him sending Jesus we’d be seeing the same revenge He administered to those people. Read the Bible if you want to see what I’m talking about. The good news is when the people in the Old Testament turned back to Him, He healed their nation. Is there a hint there for the dumb people here in America? I would pray so.
Whether this is about God, Allah, the Angel Meroni, Buddha, etc is irrelevant – whether such claims are true or not.
Actions like McConnell is carrying out – again – are about as screwed up as a hockey net in the middle of a basketball court. If he were doing this as the CEO of a large corporation, he would never be allowed to do this.
But this is US federal politics, and the Mainstream Media Marxists approve of and shield what McConnell is doing because it works for the Soviet Democrats. No God of any religion required for McConnell’s actions to be destructive while pursuing only his own interest.
I guess the idiots should have voted more republican senators into office. Now we’re stuck.
