Know Your Villains: Mitch McConnell, Part Two

Part One here.

So, I’m moving through Senator Mitch McConnell’s memoir, “The Long Game.” I had intended to go through it and comment on each chapter, but honestly, it is getting more and more revealing as I read through it. What seemed scandalous in one chapter is nothing compared to the next chapter.

Because Mitch is in the thick of the news right now (having lost perhaps the biggest gamble he’s made in his long, long career) I think it is only right to let him expose himself. I’m going to quote his own words and give some background when appropriate.

That the people of Kentucky have begun a recall effort against Mitch is fitting. I believe he couldn’t care a less about anyone not in his social and political sphere; and that the only constituents he gives a rip about are ones who can do something for him.

I was going to quote some of the narrative of how he won his first run for senator and then his second. But it’s just the boilerplate story that all narcissistic politicians relate: Humble background, had to fight for whatever he accomplished, hometown boy makes good sort of stuff.

It is clear to me, from reading his own memoir, that Mitch McConnell is a Republican only in the sense that it is the vehicle for his political ambitions.

From, The Conservative Treehouse



Mitch won a 1984 election squeaker against the incumbent Democrat and happily took a seat in the Senate. He got right to work planning for his reelection campaign. He says:


“At its best, the Senate is a place where consensus is necessary and my main job was to practice patience, make decisions on principle, as I’d learned from John Sherman Cooper, and try to ensure I got a second term.” [My bolding]

Mitch McConnell, The Long Game

Consensus and compromise and principles are recurring themes with Mitch. These are the values he twisted over many decades in order to justify his senatorial decisions. National and global issues were Mitch’s playground. He counted on his constituents back home to be uninformed and uninterested in national and world affairs.

“Remaining true to my conviction was, as Cooper taught me and Edmund Burke had argued two centuries earlier, the essential element of being a good senator. Another critical requisite for becoming an effective senator is to remain one, and therefore I knew that one of my most important jobs during my first term was to make sure I got a second one.” [My bolding]

Mitch McConnell, The Long Game

For Mitch, being “true to my conviction” was how he could vote for LBJ, support George H. W. Bush over Robert Dole, the Majority Leader when Mitch came into the Senate, or support the seemingly endless wars in the Middle East, or even to oppose free speech for a President of the United States while defending flag burning as an expression of it. Mitch said,

“…I became the lead proponent of defending flag burning as a constitutional right.”

Mitch McConnell, The Long Game

It’s how he can brag about the people he lists who have spoken at the McConnell Center at the University of Louisville:


“In addition to the scholarships, the center also provides students the opportunity to meet and interact with the long list of incredibly talented speakers we would bring—Colin Powell, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, Chief Justice John Roberts, Vice President Joe Biden…” [My bolding]

Mitch McConnel from The Long Game

These are the names from the “long list of incredibly talented speakers” Mitch chooses to list. From our 2021 vantage point, is this not telling?

Here’s Mitch on his opposition to term limits:


“I agreed with the Contract with America, except for one thing: term limits, which—fortunately was the one item that didn’t pass the House. To put it bluntly, term limits is one of the worst ideas that’s ever come on the American scene. It’s born of the shortsighted notion that learning and experience is bad, when just the opposite is true…From what I saw in the most experienced of my colleagues—people like Ted Kennedy, George Mitchell, Bob Dole, and Pete Domenici—they’d been convinced of things as a result of their experience…I knew we didn’t need to legislate term limits, because we already had them. They’re called elections.” [My bolding]

From The Long Game

The irony is so thick you almost need a chainsaw to cut through it. If only we had elections instead of selections by the DC System and their foreign friends. But I suspect Mitch knows that already.

In 1998, Mitch is named in the National Journal as a VIP. He writes,

“Much to my surprise, I’d been included on the National Journal’s list of the hundred most important people in Washington, DC, among people like Bill and Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, and Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan.” [My bolding]

Mitch McConnell, The Long Game


King-maker/King-breaker

The names he chooses to drop are intriguing. But then his forked tongue speaks and Mitch talks about Bill Clinton’s impeachment, and how he was for it. Mitch, the guy who never wanted to be president, sure does seem to want to take them down. Here is how Mitch viewed Clinton’s impeachment:



“While some of my Democratic colleagues, like Senator Robert Byrd, later said that removing Clinton wouldn’t have been good for the country, I disagree. I think what’s not good for the country is the message that the president of the United States can subvert the justice system by lying under oath.”

Mitch McConnell, The Long Game

And what did Mitch do after President Trump was acquitted in the Senate impeachment trial? He stands in the Senate and lies about the January 6th protest and accuses President Trump of fomenting violence. He impugns patriotic Americans by associating them with Antifa/BLM and other operatives who planned, executed and urged on people to breach the Capitol building.

Mitch, in his hatred of outsider President Trump and 75 million Americans who support him, was desperate to make this latest impeachment a bipartisan issue. What he did do, was ruin the careers of some RINOs (yay!) and expose himself as a jaded and corrupt power broker.


Mitch has chosen poorly. He’s been using and abusing the State and good people of Kentucky for decades in order to further his own political agenda and power, and now he’s going to pay for it. May the recall effort be successful. May the Deplorables win a key victory. Even if he survives the recall, Mitch will never again wield the kind of power he has up until now.

The System and Mitch’s preeminent place in it are hanging out there for us all to see now. The Minority Leader of the Senate is trapped in a gilded cage with miles of fencing and barbed wire around it. National Guard soldiers are freezing as they are forced to stand guard over the traitors who STOLE THE ELECTION OF 2020 and installed a doddering old fool who is controlled by Communist China.

This is what his compromising and principles have attained.

Mitch and many Republicans in Congress went along with THE STEAL. He’s comfortable with the direction our republic has now taken, back to the status quo before Trump. He never wanted it to change.


Mitch isn’t America First.
He’s Mitch First.

More to come on Mitch.

Grandma, Thanks for the great article. Makes short order of proving your conclusion. Mitch ONLY cares about Mitch.

Hope the recall is successful.

Worked with a guy from KY who STRONGLY disliked Mitch. Said Kentucky STRONGLY disliked Mitch. This guy said, they couldn’t figure out why Mitch is always elected. Rhetorically wonder of KY has Dominion and SmartMatic.

R-CONs in the Senate, IF they have any integrity will fire Mitch from his position as Leader of the R-CON swamp.

I’m still in shock that Mitch attacked Trump at the end. Even if he was a heartless betraying conniver who had NEVER been on REALPOTUS’s side, why break character at the end? It doesn’t even make sense as a TOTAL SNAKE to finally BITE when it can’t do anything.

cthulhu

It makes sense if January 6 was supposed to be a Reichstag Fire.

Unfortunately, too many good people showed up and watched the schmucks play ugly. Too many people got video. Too many people show song and prayer in the crowds, waving American flags. Too many of their crisis actors have records.

If they’d pulled the EXACT SAME MANEUVER in 1933, with total control over the media, it would have cemented their grasp on power.

Instead, they couldn’t even get a farcical impeachment out if it (which really is entirely a political function among House and Senate insiders). Their story kept falling apart because there were too many witnesses.

They managed to stampeded the joint session into blessing their fraudulent vote count THAT DAY. But they couldn’t keep it going.

Which is why I have a big THANK YOU for all the Qtreepers who went and Witnessed!!!

Wolf Moon

Yes, I agree 100%, but why the heck don’t Mitch McConnell and his staff UNDERSTAND that??? They lost control of the narrative LONG AGO!!! The American Reichstag was a bust! When the audience is GROANING, it’s time to IMPROVISE!!!

cthulhu

They are in a bubble. Their disdain for the American population has lead to a total disconnect — and all the signals they get from their bought-off pollsters, Dominion votes, and complicit staffers say that they’re totally on-track.

Gail Combs

All you have to do is think of Hilary Clinton’s violent displays of temper.

NO ONE is going to tell these Psychopaths they have lost any control of their power and truly they have EVERY REASON to think they have lost ZERO control.

𝗛𝗜𝗦𝗧𝗢𝗥𝗬

Remember by the end of 2010 the Ruling Class had closed ranks and ‘murdered’ the Tea Party by labeling it ‘racist’ and Tricking Donors OUT OF MONEY So why would they think they can not do the same again?

In July of 2010 Angelo Codevilla wrote of America’s Ruling Class And the perils of revolution.

As over-leveraged investment houses began to fail in September 2008, the leaders of the Republican and Democratic parties, of major corporations, and opinion leaders [aka Fake News] …. agreed that spending some $700 billion to buy the investors’ “toxic assets” was the only alternative to the U.S. economy’s “systemic collapse.” ….They explained neither the difference between the assets’ nominal and real values, nor precisely why letting the market find the latter would collapse America. The public objected immediately, by margins of three or four to one.

….after those in power changed their plans from buying toxic assets to buying up equity in banks and major industries but refused to explain why, when they reasserted their right to decide ad hoc on these and so many other matters, supposing them to be beyond the general public’s understanding, the American people started referring to those in and around government as the “ruling class.”….

Never has there been so little diversity within America’s upper crust…. [Which is why they HATE Trump]….

Hence whether formally in government, out of it, or halfway, America’s ruling class speaks the language and has the tastes, habits, and tools of bureaucrats. It rules uneasily over the majority of Americans not oriented to government.

The two classes have less in common culturally, dislike each other more, and embody ways of life more different from one another than did the 19th century’s Northerners and Southerners — nearly all of whom, as Lincoln reminded them, “prayed to the same God.”….

 👇  𝗜𝗠𝗣𝗢𝗥𝗧𝗔𝗡𝗧

Important as they are, our political divisions are the iceberg’s tip. When pollsters ask the American people whether they are likely to vote Republican or Democrat in the next presidential election, Republicans win growing pluralities. But whenever pollsters add the preferences “undecided,” “none of the above,” or “tea party,” these win handily, the Democrats come in second, and the Republicans trail far behind. That is because while most of the voters who call themselves Democrats say that Democratic officials represent them well, only a fourth of the voters who identify themselves as Republicans tell pollsters that Republican officeholders represent them well.

𝗛𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗼𝗳𝗳𝗶𝗰𝗲𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀, 𝗗𝗲𝗺𝗼𝗰𝗿𝗮𝘁𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗥𝗲𝗽𝘂𝗯𝗹𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗻𝘀, 𝗴𝗹𝗮𝗱𝗱𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘁𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗼𝗻𝗲-𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗿𝗱 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗲𝗹𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗼𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲 — 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗗𝗲𝗺𝗼𝗰𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗰 𝘃𝗼𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘀, 𝗽𝗹𝘂𝘀 𝗮 𝗳𝗲𝘄 𝗥𝗲𝗽𝘂𝗯𝗹𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗻𝘀.

This means that Democratic politicians are the ruling class’s prime legitimate representatives and that because Republican politicians are supported by only a fourth of their voters while the rest vote for them reluctantly, most are aspirants for a junior role in the ruling class. In short, the ruling class has a party, the Democrats. But some two-thirds of Americans — a few Democratic voters, most Republican voters, and all independents — lack a vehicle in electoral politics.

Sooner or later, well or badly, that majority’s demand for representation will be filled….

=====================================

So the Reboobs have been well aware for DECADES that people ONLY vote for them because the other choice is even worse. When the Tea Party challenged their power they were dispatched within an election cycle and then bribed or corrupted those that the Tea Party managed to put in office.

So what you are seeing in Mitch is the ARROGANCE of someone who thinks the unwashed masses have ZERO POWER OVER HIM because that is the way it has ALWAYS BEEN!

That Seculow’s team collected 250,000 signatures must have affected the republican senators also. He Jay and his team also send to the senate to each why the impeachment was unconstitutional.

Thank you for a concise and trenchant post!

So “The Long Game” is the title of The Turtle’s book.
It’s a GAME to him, all right.
Gaming the citizens of Kentucky.
Gaming the citizens of the United States.
Gaming the DeepState / Cabal system.
H3LL, he even gamed the Communist Chinese to get that $25 Million “gift” through his wife, Elaine Chao (another fine piece of work, apparently).
The Turtle doesn’t care that he’s trashed the voters and his own “reputation”. One can argue that he doesn’t even care if he’s recalled.
What mattered, and still matters, to him, is the GAME.
The goal of that GAME, for him, to accumulate as much money as possible before he leaves the Senate — and after that, to get a nice, fat “consulting” or “lobbying” position.
The only thing that will stop him at the GAME is for him to be arrested, carted off to GITMO (which, to prevent ANY of that kind of thing from happening, RobberJoe’s handlers are starting “an investigation” to see about closing Gitmo down — probably as quickly as possible), and to have his assets confiscated under RICO or the foreign government interference EO that President Trump signed.

THAT’S what I’m hoping to see…these slimeballs lose their accumulated ill gotten gains!

Wolf Moon

Excellent article! This is mind-blowing – a turning point for me.

I think you’ve actually revealed Mitch’s “fatal flaw” – which is something I could not have known were it not for you bringing the evidence here!

Fatal flaws are something which heroes and villains have, and in great literature like the Greek (and other) classics, sometimes it’s hard to say who is who. It’s no secret that I’ve often spoken up for Mitch, with some admiration for his long game, and thus it pains me that it’s now clear Mitch played a part in the long and massive 4-year plot against Trump.

I am reminded of Achilles and Hector – the glory of their heroic victories, and the tragedy of their differing ends.

So – just as I will never abandon Trump, I won’t abandon Mitch – but I will instead choose to side with the TRUTH that Mitch should have chosen, like Athanasius, even though the WORLD was against Trump.

Trump “won” because he does not have Mitch’s fatal flaw. And you will find this most ironic.

Mitch plays a long and patient game, but he will only do it through WINS. This is why he chose the path of principle yet compromised by the requirement that he always win forward to the NEXT term, the NEXT round, the NEXT fight.

Trump plays a long and patient game, but he is willing to PLAY THROUGH LOSSES. That is precisely the lesson of the Kipling poem……

Words here…..

https://ronabbass.com/2021/02/12/a-tribute-to-trump-vid/

Trump was willing to LOSE the White House, but in taking that bullet, unmask the greatest unholy conspiracy this Republic has ever known.

Mitch would not lose, and as part of the conspiracy, he, too, was unmasked.

Trump was RIGHT to ask us to be there that day. Whatever one thinks of what happened, it was like being at TROY.

So I won’t hate Mitch, but I will instead say a prayer for him, as I have so often prayed for Trump.

We TRULY live in historic times. It was an HONOR to be there, on the field of battle in what can only be described as information civil war.

I won’t tear down the monuments to either side. But I know which side I’m on.

Zorro_rides

Yes, If Mitch fights for good to prevail, it goes only as far as Mitch safe in the victor’s position.

Oh but Trump! To fight for good to prevail and bear the cost… Aye, you’ll be a man, my son, said uncle Kipling.

And a man with whom He is well pleased, too. I believe that. All of us make more of a stand, every day.

Wolf Moon

TRUMP WON. This is the thing they don’t get. They won the GAME by cheating, but Trump WON THE ELECTION. And they can’t take that away.

All they did was serve China’s cause. And then they turn around and call the landlord who now owns them, their “ally”.

It is/was the unmasking that the traitors were and still are afraid of. An awakened populace is a danger to their entrenchment.

Without the sequence of events we’ve been watching, for many who have not been paying attention, that mask would have remained in place.

Just like the powers that wannabe want all of us to wear forever, mainly as a psychological tool of control.

We know that. The normies didn’t and many still don’t and admission that they’ve been played will NOT be an easy pill to swallow. In fact, I anticipate A LOT of anger when that sinks in.

Wolf Moon

You’re welcome. I have just been gobsmacked by this whole thing. I am getting dozens and dozens of “Mitch mails” right now, and they feel like letters from a friend’s wife who betrayed him with some crazy lie that got both him AND me arrested. And then she’s like “Hey, how you doin’? Let’s go get coffee!”

I’m like, thinking – “Ahem – maybe not now.” – as I just let ’em sit in the inbox.

And I’m sitting there going “OMG. How far back do the lies go?”

And it’s even worse, because I think there is fundamental classified stuff at the root of this whole business – almost but not quite matching the divide. And THAT divide is both fundamentally real and fundamentally phony. It’s a MESS.

Wolf Moon

I’m still back at an Andrew Breitbart moment with

“You want to call us INSURRECTIONISTS…..?
You want to call us EXTREMISTS…..?”

Gail Combs

“…And I’m sitting there going “OMG. How far back do the lies go?”…..”

They go back at LEAST as far as 1913. AND actually as far back to 1776. One could call Alexander Hamilton the first Bankster Trojan Horse.

Federal Reserve Bank of St Louis: How Hamilton Laid the Foundation for the Fed

Alexander Hamilton didn’t just lend his name to the hit Broadway musical; he was the voice behind the idea of central banking in the United States. Step back into the late 1700s in this video from the Dallas Fed.

When Congress passed Hamilton’s bill for a central bank, the First Bank received a 20-year charter. When the charter expired in 1811, Congress did not renew it.

Hamilton had died in a duel with Aaron Burr seven years earlier (1804), so he could not argue for the renewal. In addition, there were still opponents of the First Bank who considered it unconstitutional. The bank closed on March 3, 1811.

However, the central banking system Hamilton created lived on. His work laid the foundation for central banking in the United States, and many aspects of the First Bank are noticeable in today’s central banking system, the Federal Reserve.

For example, the Fed’s structure ensures political independence, and the system is considered “independent within the government.” The First Bank also had a quasi-governmental structure, as the government was a minority stakeholder while private investors held spots on the board of directors.

The Federal Reserve serves as the fiscal agent for the U.S. Treasury, a responsibility that the First Bank also had.

However, an important difference between the two central banking systems is that the Fed does not act as a commercial bank for the American people. Instead, the Fed acts as a bank for commercial banks. Regional Reserve banks are often described as “bankers’ banks.”

Alexander Hamilton: Father of American Banking

….After the states agreed to ratify the Constitution, George Washington became the country’s first president. He asked Hamilton to be the first Secretary of the Treasury.

The role of Secretary of the Treasury was critical in the early days of the new nation. America’s most urgent problem was figuring out ways to pay its debts. The country had borrowed or promised a lot of money during the Revolutionary War.

Hamilton proposed a national bank. Congress approved the idea in 1791. The bank had $10 million in capital. It could lend the government money and pay off state debts. Hamilton’s system also created a federal system to collect taxes….

Opponents expressed many objections to Hamilton’s Bank of the United States. Generally, members of Congress from the northern states supported the idea, while those from southern states opposed it.

Another political leader, Thomas Jefferson, said the Bank exceeded the powers of the Constitution.

Hamilton… became the leader of nation’s first political party, called the Federalist Party.

The Federalists, located mainly in the commercial Northeast, supported a strong national government. They laid the foundation of a national economy, created a national judicial system and set up principles of foreign policy….

Wolf Moon

This explains why he leftists, using their tools of art/media control (Broadway(TM)/CIA(TM)) and selective racial glorification (Black(TM)) are so in love with Hamilton(TM).

It’s not even about race(TM) – it’s about banking(TM).

Deplorable Patriot

Don’t forget that Alexander Hamilton was born on Nevis, which is right next to St. Kitts where the cane sugar rum is known as Cane Spirit Rothschild. Somehow, they were involved there, but a surface search is not pulling up anything immediate.

Gail Combs

He was born on the ‘wrong side of the blanket’ He is also my direct ancestor.  🙄

With Trump’s abortive impeachment, Sen. McConnell goes full narcissist

By Andrea Widburg

Despite seven turncoat Republican senators, the Senate voted to acquit Trump following the impeachment trial against him. Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell joined in this vote. However, he later accused Trump of being responsible for the events at the Capitol on January 6. By doing so, McConnell, rather than indicting Trump, only revealed his own narcissistic duplicity.

Colloquially, “narcissist” refers to someone in love with himself because Narcissus, a figure from Greek mythology, fell in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. “Narcissist” can also refer to a personality disorder.

And it is deadly. It’s clear to me now that they called in the National Guard to Washington in order to SEGUE into protection of Washington as they GRAB THE GUNS.

And that is why Biden is going to always be in an undisclosed location, including possible fakery of the White House interior. So that they can control the media and make it look like Biden is in control of the situation.

This is all very ugly. China and Obama are about to launch their gun grab, using faithful anti-gun puppet, Joe Biden, who puts a White Face(TM) on it for psychological reasons.

Deplorable Patriot

I think there are a lot of senators who wanted to vote to impeach, but had something holding them back. What, I’m not sure. The more I think about it, if they REALLY wanted POTUS out of the picture, why not just vote to impeach and then steamroll elections from now on?

I think there’s something else in play.

these articles are awesome Grandma!!

his point about term limits is so self serving…normally I would agree that learning and experience are good things. but in the case of government, they use it subvert the will of the people, not forward it.
and in turtle’s case, it was just to keep his gravy train rolling. if our government was producing budgets (as they should) writing laws (as they should) and working for the people (as they won’t) my opinion would be totally different.
but they spend (to receive kickbacks and perks for themselves), have lobbyists write laws (they’re too busy), and work for big corporations or OTHER countries–anyone who can contribute to their NEXT campaign. the work of people? who??

I’ve made a long list of Republican traitors from 11/23/21 on – but Pence and McConnell top the list. Their betrayal and treachery is beyond the limits of conscience and love of country.

These two are traitors to their President, the Constitution and to 75-80+ American voters!

What were the effects of the January 6 betrayal and the false flag attack on the Capitol?

Our distinguished commenter kalbokalbs said it well – here: https://www.theqtree.com/2021/02/14/dear-kmag-20210214-open-topic/comment-page-1/#comment-692394

“Once pence came out of the closet, two realities slapped Trump in the face.

  • Challenging the state EC votes was futile. 
  • Solidarity in chain of command BROKEN. Thus military option off the table.

^^^ Trump knew it was OVER. ^^^

Additionally, quite likely Trump was shown he and his entire family would be JFKd. Not all at once. Simply picked off.

Whatever Trump chooses to do in the coming weeks and months, i’ll support Trump.

As the totality of the cabal universally acting against Trump, he is surely reassessing his Family financial losses over the nearly five years. Assessing Family financial and physical security going forward.

As for R-CONs, them asshoes are NO different that D-Rats, dead to me.”

The brass who are going along with the CCP will be used for exemplary confessions when the time comes to get rid of them. This is what communists do with the self-described “racist” SJW university administrators who are ideologically sympathetic, who bow down to the woke mob, and confess to being racists. They resign or are fired, but their confessions are used by the communists.
