The Rise of the “Decepticons!”

The term “Decepticon” may be a foreign one to many of my readers, and a very familiar term to others.

The “Decepticons” are a part of the “Transformers” family. That may help more of my readers.  

The name “Decepticon” refers to deception, or attempting to deceive.

That’s where I’m trying to go with this.

Let’s call out some of our political “decepticons”…, those pretending to be Independents, those pretending to be Republicans, and those pretending to be Americans!

Regarding The Senate…, they say the democrats “control The Senate,” which means they control the agenda, and what gets voted on and what doesn’t. This is because the Senate is split 50-50, with Vice President Harris breaking the tie, making it 51-50. 

But wait…, is it really? How can that be?  There are only 48 democrat senators in The Senate.

It’s true.

If you look at the make-up of The Senate, there are 50 republicans, 48 democrats, and 2 “independents.”

The two senators who identify as being an “independent” are Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Senator Angus King of Maine, however, they also say these senators choose to caucus with the democrats, thus adding to their numbers.

I say they shouldn’t be able to have it both ways.  Either identify as a democrat or not.

This brings to the forefront the most egregious “decepticon” of all, Senator Bernie Sanders. Honestly, I had never even heard of Senator Angus King before.

Does anyone actually believe that Bernie Sanders is an Independent?

I mean he has run for president as a democrat (TWICE), and his socialist ideologies would even place him on the far left edge of the democrat party these days, which is really saying something! Russia and China would probably even have to reign him in a bit!

Our next group of “decepticons” would be those “republicans” who should really identify as democrats, and those whose allegiance really lies with “the swamp.”

Heading up the “swamp” list of “decepticons” are Senators Mitch “Swamp Turtle” McConnell and Lindsey Graham.  

Those “republicans” who we see “transforming” into democrats from time to time are, Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski.

The list of the democrat “decepticons” masquerading as Americans, while disregarding the oath they all took to follow and protect The Constitution, is quite long, in fact.

Just for starters, this list would include “the big guy,” the “illegitimate guy,” Joe Biden, “Cackling” Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Maxine Waters, Jerrold Nadler, Adam Schiff, Pramiya Jayapal, Eric Swalwell, and Cori Bush. And again, that’s just for starters.

Yes, my friends, it’s getting to the point where the democrat “decepticons” don’t even bother to hide the fact that they’re anti-American anymore. This can be done when they aren’t even worried about the opinion of voters anymore, since the democrats can just manipulate the vote in their favor…, and get away with it.

With “friends” like these, who needs enemies?!

The “republican” leader in the senate, Mitch McConnell, was among 19 Republicans to vote for the “infrastructure” bill.  Let’s take a look at him and the other “republicans” who helped it over the finish line.

Rick Rouan for USA TODAY reports that, “A group of 19 Senate Republicans, led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, joined the entire Democratic caucus in passing a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package on Tuesday.”

“The bill passed with a vote of 69-30, more than two weeks after President Joe Biden declared ‘we have a deal’ with a bipartisan group of negotiators.”

A bipartisan group of sell-outs more like.

So, what’s in the “infrastructure” bill?

According to CNN, “The Republican National Committee has claimed, “Joe Biden’s ‘infrastructure’ plan is not really about infrastructure, it is another multi-trillion dollar far left wish list.”

“According to the GOP, ‘Only 7% of the bill’s spending is for what Americans traditionally think of as infrastructure.’”

“Under their ‘traditional’ definition of infrastructure, the GOP limits what counts as infrastructure spending to include the $115 billion the plan allocates for modernizing highways, roads and main streets, $25 billion to airports and $17 billion for inland waterways, ports and ferries.”

Well, that accounts for the $.2 part of the $1.2 trillion. Hardly enough to warrant this bill being called the “infrastructure” bill.

Even with the democrats’ liberal definition of “infrastructure” (pun intended), “infrastructure” still only accounts for about 30% of the spending in the bill.

Why do the democrats have to be so consistently deceitful and disingenuous?

Why are “traditional” definitions not good enough anymore?

The simple answer is, they have to change the playing field when they know they aren’t capable of winning if they are forced to play by the accepted rules.    

Rick Rouan, for USA TODAY, continues, “Biden said after the vote on Tuesday that he called most of the 19 Republican senators who voted for the infrastructure bill to praise them.”

Ugh.

‘”You have, and no doubt you will, disagree with me on many issues. But where we can agree, we should,’ he [Biden] said. ‘And here on this bill, we proved that we can still come together to do big things, important things, for the American people.’”

It seems you’re getting better at reading your teleprompter coherently, Illegitimate Joe!

Did these “republicans” actually read the “infrastructure” bill?

If so, whose side are they on, anyway?

Which Senate Republicans voted for the infrastructure deal?

Roy Blunt, R-Mo.

Richard Burr, R-N.C.

Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.

Bill Cassidy, R-La.

Susan Collins, R-Maine

Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.

Mike Crapo, R-Idaho

Deb Fischer, R-Neb.

Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa

John Hoeven, R-N.D.

Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska

Rob Portman, R-Ohio

James E. Risch, R-Idaho

Mitt Romney, R-Utah

Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska

Thom Tillis, R-N.C.

Roger F. Wicker, R-Miss.

Remember these names.

I can understand the list of the usual RINOs [Republicans In Name Only]: Murkowski, Romney, and Collins…, but what about the rest?  Especially Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham?!

Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham?!!!!!!!

To put this in perspective, that would be like Chuck Schumer voting to support former President Trump’s infrastructure proposal.

And that would be a cold day in hell.

Apparently, the republicans don’t need to wait for cold day in hell.  These “republicans” were willing to jump right into the fire with this deal with the devil.  

Again, with “friends” like these, who needs enemies?!

Most “Trumpers” are not Republicans.

It’s true!

Most “Trumpers,” people who support President Trump and his “America First” ideology, do not feel an allegiance to the Republican Party.

I know I don’t.

And why would they?

Why should they?

As we prepare for the inauguration of Illegitimate Joe, let’s take a walk down memory lane.

If you’ll recall, back in 2016, then candidate Donald Trump received NO support from the establishment republicans.

The RNC (Republican National Committee) only offered their support once Donald Trump won the republican presidential primary.

Early on in the election against Hillary Clinton, the RNC seemed to be hedging its bets, not wanting to potentially hurt the conventional republican candidates for The Congress and The Senate.

It wasn’t until later in the game, when candidate Donald Trump appeared to be building some momentum, that the RNC threw its full support behind him.

Even at this time, establishment republicans offered him no real support.

It wasn’t until Donald Trump shocked the world and beat Hillary Clinton (please note this was back in the day before unchecked election fraud) that the establishment republicans decided to “play ball” with the newly elected president.

Note: The election fraud problem (or a lack thereof) would be corrected by the democrats four years later.

So, the establishment republicans begrudgingly “played ball” with President Trump, but it wasn’t until his policies started bearing fruit, and became more and more popular with the American people, that they actually made it seem like they had gotten on board.

Then, even as they used President Trump’s popularity and his supporters to gain their own re-elections, they just as quickly abandoned their support for The President once the election had officially been stolen from him.

The establishment republican leaders I am specifically referring to are Mitch (The Swamp Turtle) McConnell, Lindsey (The Lying Loser) Graham, and Kevin (Kiss A$$) McCarthy.

Their true colors were demonstarted again, today, as McConnell and McCarthy attended church along with Biden, Harris, and the rest of the democrat crew.

Are you kidding me?!

After they just had the 2020 election shoved up their backsides?!

The “bend over boys,” McConnell and McCarthy, obviously have no limit to their shameless politics.

If President Trump decides to run for president again in 2024, it won’t be as a republican, it’ll be as a third-party candidate.

You heard it here first, folks!

Donald trump will be the candidate for the “America First Party” in 2024!

Screw the republicans!

Screw the democrats!

Screw the mainstream media!

And, screw social media!

Screw everybody, except the American people!   

President Trump will have learned his lessons well, and before the 2024 election, he will have his own media company and his own social media platform, and there will be no stopping him!

The democrats won’t even be able to manufacture enough votes to steal the next election!  

Let’s just hope there is enough left of America to save.

C’MON MAN!

You can say that again!

According to Joe Hernandez and Nicholas Pugliese of WHYY-FM, a PBS and NPR affiliate in Philadelphia, “During his daily press briefing Wednesday, Murphy [Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey] unleashed an uncharacteristically angry tirade [Why does an “angry tirade” need to be characterized?] against U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for comments he made earlier in the day.”

anj 1

“The Republican from Kentucky suggested that some states and cities should declare bankruptcy instead of relying on the federal government to prop up public finances that have been obliterated by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Please notice how McConnell is tagged as “the republican from Kentucky, but that Murphy is not identified as a democrat.

Specifically, according to Ted Barrett and Manu Raju of CNN, “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took a hard line Wednesday against more funding for state and local governments in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, saying that Republicans are not interested in ‘revenue replacement for state governments’ or ‘solving their pension problems.’”

“McConnell’s tough words came a day after the Senate approved a $484 billion bill [known as coronavirus response bill phase 3.5] to help small businesses and hospitals respond to the coronavirus outbreak.”

“McConnell suggested in interviews Wednesday that Democrats are trying to get the federal government to essentially bail out state and local governments for bad decisions they have made related to public pension obligations and other sources of expensive debt.”

‘“I would certainly be in favor of allowing states to use the bankruptcy route,’ McConnell told Hugh Hewitt in a radio interview. ‘It saves some cities. And there’s no good reason for it not to be available. My guess is their first choice would be for the federal government to borrow money from future generations to send it down to them now so they don’t have to do that. That’s not something I’m going to be in favor of.’”

Agreed.  Why should states, that have been fiscally responsible, now be forced to bail out those states which have blown their budgets year after year after year, and spent money they never had, or were ever going to have.

anj 3

“New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, also slammed McConnell’s remarks Wednesday, calling it ‘one of the dumbest statements of all time.’”

I ask you…, why should the people of McConnell’s state, Kentucky, who are looked down upon as “ignorant hillbillies” by the “oh so wise and smart east coast liberals,” pick-up the tab because these “oh so wise and smart east coast liberals” don’t know how to balance their checkbook?

anj 4

And it’s gone way beyond the “balancing of checkbooks.” These “oh so wise and smart east coast liberals” have the equivalent of multiple personal loans, multiple second mortgages, and a wallet full of maxed out credit cards.

anj 6

Governor Cuomo then told his brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “Cuomo Prime Time,” ‘“He then says this is a bailout to the blue states, which was a really offensive statement.’”

This is the worst kind of “offensive statement” for a liberal…, BECAUSE IT’S THE TRUTH!

‘“Come on, man,’ Murphy said. ‘That is completely and utterly irresponsible [referring to McConnell’s suggestion that the states consider bankruptcy].’”

“C’mon yourself, Murph!

It is you and your blue state friends who are, and who have been, “utterly irresponsible.”

“Murphy suggested that, absent federal help, states would be able to stay financially afloat but be forced to make painful decisions about spending cuts.”

Cry us all a river Murphy.

Everyone, everywhere, is forced to make painful decisions from time to time.  That’s why you all are in the position you’re in.  No one chooses to be responsible or accountable.

‘“We will gut the living daylights in every state in America out of the services — the exact services — that our citizens need right now. We will just cut, cut, cut, and cut,’ Murphy warned.”

No, Governor Murphy…, not “every state…,” just those states, like yours, which have been mismanaged, while spending foolishly and irresponsibly for decades.

“Murphy again called on federal lawmakers to provide direct cash assistance to states that have been hardest hit by the pandemic so they could help residents ‘in their most profound hour of need.’”

anj 2

Are you not aware Governor Murphy, that on March 25th, Congress passed phase 3 of the coronavirus response bill, called The CARES Act [Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security]?

This was a $2 trillion [that’s $2,000,000,000,000.00] relief bill that has already targeted $340 billion [that’s $340,000,000,000.00] in aid to cities and states, based on need, regarding those states affected the worst by the virus.

Your share of that should be quite substantial, Governor.

In fact, New Jersey would be second in line for this money based on the coronavirus case numbers, and would stand to receive over $40 billion [that’s $40,000,000,000.00] in aid!

SO, WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU CRYING ABOUT, GOVERNOR?

anj 8

Is that a “depends” you’re wearing for a mask?

I don’t see anybody bailing me out, my friends, our families or our businesses if we choose to be stupid with our money.

But apparently you “oh so wise and smart east coast, blue state, liberals” don’t have to play by the same rules as everyone else.

You just spend, spend, spend and spend, and then expect someone else to pick up the bill?

Like I said…, I don’t see anybody bailing me out, my friends, our families or our businesses if we choose to be stupid with our money.

As usual…, your liberal sense of entitlement just rubs all of us ignorant “hillbillies” and deplorables the wrong way.
