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.

Please don’t feed the RINOs!

And by RINOs I mean Republicans In Name Only!

Leading up to the 2020 presidential election, we have seen many supposed republicans and collections of supposed republicans choosing to support Lyin’ Joe Biden instead of President Trump.  

The democrats feel, for some unknown reason, that this will influence other “republicans” to switch their support to Lyin’ Joe Biden, or somehow delegitimize President Trump.

What these losers are failing to remember is, President Trump won the election in 2016 despite the democrats, despite being attacked by the RINOs, despite having no support from establishment republicans, and despite the liberal propaganda news media.  

So, when these 2020 RINOs and establishment republicans try the same old tricks, like back in 2016, please excuse Trump supporters if they aren’t impressed.

Not only aren’t we impressed, we are additionally motivated to support our president!

Here’s the latest example of a RINO who thinks their “coming out of the democrat closet” is going to affect President Trump’s support in any way at all.   

In her own words for Fox News, Susan Molinari, explains, “Why Joe Biden has the support of this former Republican congresswoman [from New York].”

“It’s never been more clear that we need real leadership,” she adds.  

And Lyin’ Joe Biden is your idea of a real leader?!

Ugh.

“I’m a third-generation Republican officeholder and proud of it. I served in the U.S. Congress for five terms; I was elected vice chairwoman of the Republican Conference; and I delivered the keynote address at the 1996 Republican National Convention. And I’m here to tell you why I’m voting for Joe Biden.”

Let me guess…, because you secretly hate America?

Because you enjoy seeing unchallenged riots and violence in our streets?

Because you yearn for good old days when all of our jobs were being shipped overseas?

Because you liked it better when the American people were kept in the dark and the deep state was allowed to do anything they wanted?

Because you liked it better when middle eastern countries could hold us hostage for their oil?

Because you liked it better when China raped us annually because of our prior treasonous trade deals?  

Because you want to take away all of our guns so we are helpless against criminals and your desired socialist/communist future government?  

Am I getting warm?   

Before we continue with Molinari’s disgusting coming out party, I’d also like to point out that she has conveniently failed to mention a few things on her distinguished resume.

After retiring from Congress in 1997, Molinari became a co-host on “CBS This Morning.”

Then, after a stint as a lobbyist on her own, a profession that ranks even lower than being an ambulance chasing personal injury lawyer, Molinari joined the Washington Group in 2001, becoming the lobbying firm’s president and chief executive.

Wow, she must have been a particularly good influence peddler!

Now, after nearly seven years at Google, Susan Molinari is stepping aside as the internet giant’s VP of public policy for the Americas and head of its Washington, D.C. office.

Yes, that’s the same Google that has been meddling in the election, impeding free speech, and censoring information that doesn’t conform to its liberal agenda.

According to Steven Overly, of The Politico Media Company, “Google has also been ensnarled in controversy involving work for the Defense Department. The company said earlier this year it would let a contract to provide artificial intelligence technology to the Pentagon expire in 2019 after employees raised concerns about their work being used by the military. Critics pounced on the company’s decision as unpatriotic.”

“In June, Google hired Karan Bhatia, a former George W. Bush administration official and policy chief at GE [and another RINO] to head its global policy team from Washington. He will oversee Molinari’s replacement.”

“Google says Molinari will stay at the company as a senior adviser to ‘build relationships externally’ with members of Congress, political parties and state representatives.”

Translation: Molinari will stay at Google in hopes of her being able to influence members of Congress, political parties and state representatives, regarding Google’s upcoming legal and legislative battles with Congress.  

“Kent Walker, whom Google promoted in July to senior vice president of global affairs, praised Molinari in a statement as a ‘passionate leader’ who has ‘brought extraordinary experience and political judgement to her work.’”

Translation: Susan Molinari has been a good little RINO.

“The company [Google] has also found itself in Republicans’ cross-hairs over accusations that its liberal-leaning workforce suppresses conservative viewpoints in its search results.”

“President Donald Trump tweeted in August that Google’s news search was ‘RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD’ because it served up news outlets like CNN in its top results.”

‘“Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!’ Trump continued.”

Okay…, now I think we have a clearer picture of Susan Molinari’s track record.

Now let’s see the rest of what she has to say.

Molinari continues by saying, “The COVID-19 pandemic has killed over 222,000 Americans, infected over 8 million fellow citizens, and decimated our economy. Yet, President Trump continues to deny the seriousness of COVID-19.”

Really? 

President Trump denies the seriousness of COVID-19”

There’s the first lie.

“He knowingly and willfully lied to us at the beginning of this crisis, and he continues to do so now as he claims we are ‘rounding the corner.’ He has no plan to effectively contain the virus. He dismisses our public health experts and scientists as ‘idiots.’ And even after hosting a super spreader event at the White House, he tells us we shouldn’t let it control our lives.”

This is a lot to process, Susan.

Just let me say I think most reasonable people understand we can’t control or “contain” the virus, and that “we shouldn’t let it control our lives.”

“This behavior defies logic, and worse, it is costing lives and livelihoods in every corner of our country.”

Now, are you referring to the behavior of your friends, the democrat mayors and governors, or the behavior of President Trump?     

“I’ve worked with Joe Biden in Congress. He is a good man, and he’s what our nation needs during this time of crisis. He’s honest, he’s compassionate, and he values each of us.”

Excuse me, Susan…, I think I just threw up in my mouth.

Please give me a minute…

I would say we have lies two, three, four, five and six right there.  

Okay…, proceed.  

“During our time serving in Congress together, I saw Biden countless times listening to those around him when others left the room and standing up for those who needed a voice when no one else was paying attention. From authoring the Violence Against Women Act to standing up for human rights around the world, Joe Biden is a champion for everyone.”

Even all of us “chumps?”

“And Joe knows what we have to do to get through this crisis. He has a plan to contain COVID-19 and take steps that should have been taken months ago, including providing free testing and treatment and ensuring personal protective equipment and other supplies are available for all.”

I’ve heard about Biden’s mysterious “plan to contain COVID-19,” which includes “providing free testing and treatment and ensuring personal protective equipment and other supplies are available for all,” which is already happening and has been happening. So, I’m unclear about what else he would plan on doing.

“The Joe I know won’t just be a president for Democrats. He will be an American president.”

“Joe will listen to the experts, follow the science, and be honest with the American people so that we can safely reopen our schools and get back to our jobs. Our economy will never recover until we get this virus under control.”

In fact, Lyin’ Joe Biden has the best “expert” of all in his son, Hunter, who is “the smartest guy” Joe knows.  So, he’s got that going for him.    

“While I know it might not be easy for Republicans to vote for a Democrat, I promise you this: the Joe I know won’t just be a president for Democrats. He will be an American president.”

Didn’t we already hear that lie? 

That must be extra special lie!

“He will work with both parties for all of us – even those who don’t support him – to get us through this crisis, recover and build our country and our economy back better.”

And here we have lies seven, eight and nine.

“That’s why Republicans from across the country are coming together in support of this ticket.”

That’s why RINOs from across the country are coming together in support of this ticket, you mean.

“From Cindy McCain and John Kasich to Colin Powell and more than 70 national security officials, there is strong GOP support for Joe Biden in this election.”

Wow…, it’s a veritable RINO who’s who!

“We have so much work to do as a country, and we’ll never get there divided.”

And we all know the democrats would NEVER dream of trying to divide the American people by calling half of our country “racists,” “xenophobes,” “ignorant hicks,” “chumps,” and so on and so forth.   

If you don’t believe me, ask ANTIFA or Black Lives Matter!  

“We have to come together, not as Democrats or Republicans, but as Americans to rebuild our nation and bring people together.”

Translation: We need to silence the conservatives for once and for all so that all of us enlightened liberals can proceed with ruining America without delay.

John McCain and his family showed their true colors at his funeral.

And what are the McCain family colors?

Blue (vs. red)…, and yellow.

In yet another display of classlessness, the McCain family snubbed John McCain’s running mate for the presidency in 2008.

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “Sarah Palin says it was a ‘gut punch’ not to be invited to the funeral of her 2008 running mate, the late Senator John McCain, last year.”

mccain funeral

“Palin, who was tapped as McCain’s pick for vice president during the 2008 race, opened up about the funeral during an interview on ‘Good Morning Britain.’”

‘“I was kinda surprised to be publicly disinvited to the funeral.  I think that was an unnecessary step,’ Palin told Piers Morgan. ‘They didn’t have to embarrass me and embarrass others.  That was all weird.  I hope that doesn’t happen to other people.  It’s kind of a gut punch.’”

“McCain, who died last August from brain cancer, reportedly planned his own funeral.”

Well that’s not vain at all is it?

“According to reports, Palin learned she was not invited to the services through an intermediary, not directly from the McCain family.”

Stay classy (yellow) McCain family.

It just goes to show that John McCain had to hold his RINO nose when selecting the straight shooting conservative, Sarah Palin, to run with him in 2008.

In McCain’s book titled “The Restless Wave,” he wrote that he regretted choosing Palin as his running mate instead of his close friend, former Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.

Now here is something John McCain said that I think you can believe!

Lieberman was a democrat, had been Al Gore’s running mate back in 2000.  McCain and Lieberman were establishment “swamp rat” brothers from different mothers.

Then, adding insult to injury, not only did the McCains specifically not invite Sarah Palin to the funeral (as well as President Trump, which was more understandable), it turns out that John McCain called Barack Obama personally to ask him if he would deliver one of the eulogies at his funeral.

So he doesn’t invite the person who ran with him in a presidential election, but he not only invites, but has the guy deliver his eulogy who beat him in the election?

cuckcoo

Cuckoo!  Cuckoo!

Yes my friends…, John McCain definitely showed his true colors to be blue (vs. red)…, and yellow of course.

Singman adds that, “When he died, Palin posted a pair of tweets touting McCain and his record.”

‘“Today we lost an American original,’ she wrote. ‘Sen. John McCain was a maverick and a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs.  John never took the easy path in life – and through sacrifice and suffering he inspired others to serve something greater than self.’”

And “later, she wrote: ‘John McCain was my friend. I will remember the good times. My family and I send prayers for Cindy and the McCain family.’”

Kudos to Sarah Palin for taking the high road here, but I hate to tell you that “friend” thing was a one way street.

John McCain used you, then disposed of you.

John McCain was a member of the “establishment,” “swamp rat” fraternity through and through, and neither Sarah Palin nor President Trump were welcome at that party.
