Russia’s Newest Friend

December 10, 2016 By: El Jefe Category: 2016 Election

Russia has a new friend, and no, it’s not Cheeto Jesus.  He’s been a friend for a really long time.  The new friend?  Mitch McConnell.  The Washington Post is reporting today that the Obama administration, after being briefed by the CIA that Russia was mcconnell-turtleclearly trying to intervene in the presidential election, attempted to form a bipartisan coalition to go after their hackers.  Obama wanted a bipartisan effort to avoid looking like he was playing politics during the campaign.

In mid-September, intelligence officials briefed congressional leaders in a secure room in the Capitol.  The Democrats present unanimously supported a bipartisan effort to go public with an accusation against Russia for meddling in the election.  As you would expect, the Republicans were split on the issue.  In the end, McConnell vetoed the effort, obviously to protect his own damn job.  As stated in the article:

According to several officials, McConnell raised doubts about the underlying intelligence and made clear to the administration that he would consider any effort by the White House to challenge the Russians publicly an act of partisan politics.

We all know the result.  Aided by the Russians, Cheeto Jesus gets enough electoral votes to win the presidency while losing the popular vote by over 2 percent.  McConnell was rewarded by landing an appointment of his wife, Elaine Chao, as Secretary of Transportation.  Oh, yeah.  One more thing; McConnell refused to talk to the Washington Post for this article.

The damage that Mitch McConnell has inflicted on our country is now incalculable.  He literally blocked president Obama from helping the US and its economy for 8 years; he unconstitutionally blocked the nomination of a Supreme Court justice for almost a year.  We can now chalk up a presidential win to McConnell’s list by his enabling the Russians to interfere in a national election.  Thanks, Kentucky.

Instead of being expelled and charged with treason, this sh*tbag is once again Senate majority leader. (Sorry, Momma, there’s just no other descriptor.)

  1. McTurtle has to know that he just can’t continue to play that old part anymore. People are on to him. Anyone care to posit who among the R’s is making plans to jockey McTurtle out of his job as Senate Majority Leader? That will be yet another fine soap opera!

    Not to put too fine a point on it … I’ve known chin-less wonder since we were pages for Ky. Senators in the late 50’s. He lived not far from my grandparents in Louisville. He doesn’t like: baseball, football, basketball, laCrosse, golf, tennis, swimming, sailing, boating, sex or anything else discussed or broached by teenage boys of the period … or since. His place in Louisville was just over 1/2 block from mine until he terminated his residence in Kentucky, using the Exxon-Eddie principle of renting a room in his mommy’s apartment.

    His self-esteem is so low, that he has become a bully. He learned so many procedural tricks from the King of the Senate, John Sherman Cooper, he’s evolved into the Queen of the Senate. His mean minded cruelty is aimed at people he ‘feels’ are smart enough to do better — but don’t because they share the opportunity to advance with less fortunate. His reading of social darwinism is such that the poor, the halt & lame are to be treated as criminals: debtor prisons and all.
    When President Obama announced the Executive Order I allowed, publicly, that he needed to declassify before chin-less, OleBaldy and whitehair, wetpents get into office so the findings may be published. Now I see that chin-less got a ‘heads-up’ and is prepared to scuttle funding for the CIA.

  3. McConnell, aka Sen coprolite (petrified animal crap) has outlived his shelf life. He has done just about any and everything possible to sabotage the United States for what? Oh that would be for his own wealth. The ole bully should be removed for non performance of his elected job. Perhaps Kentucky voters will wake up and see what a horrible, evil old useless fart they keep in power. He does nothing but keep himself and his sycophants happy.

  4. This election should be declared null and void and the true winner by 2.8 million votes should be our President.
    I know we can’t make this happen, but it should!

  5. Word is Dat Guy is gonna name ExxonMobil CEO as SecState. More swamp, more alligators, more Friends of Vlad.

  6. Jane & Polite Kool Marxist says:

    daChipster, Dat Guy can name and nominate until he is bluer in the face than he is at his tiny little gohmerts. But, and here is where the exchanges could become interesting. Just which of the bloated BLOTUS nominees can the snacilbupeR swallow, while the Democrats decide which fights are worth fighting.

    At this juncture, my advice to the Democrats in the Senate would be “all of them.” Pound the snacilbupeR with the Emoluments Clause.

    In the almost too amusing to care, but dayum the snacilibupeR are that crazy category, it has been floated that the little croissant Jared would like to pull a Cheney and nominate himself as Sec of State.

  7. So we have a treasonous traitor leading the US Senate and the snacilbupeR. Can senators be impeached? The Chinless Wonder should be first in line. Why in hell did Elaine Chao ever marry him? I mean, she seems to have something on the ball, though her ethics are no better.

  8. In a way, none of this is new. We’ve known since the Clinton administration that Republicans in Congress were power-mad to the point of outright treason. Then it was more hidden and, of course, always denied.

    Now they are treasonous in public. And of course, they always deny it, and evidence (even video) be damned. For that matter, they have openly treasonous assistance: Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Matt Drudge, Breitbard, Alex Jones, and so on, and so on. The extreme right-wing public faces of the GOP have made a huge show of accusing the Democrats of being anti-American, and now that THEY’re the ones being flagrantly treasonous, they have their following of sheeple.

    Teh Gerg: Yes, indeedy. And they think they’re too clever by half. Reference points: French Revolution. Russian Revolution. The oligarchs lost it all. Same story. Different channel. When will they ever learn?

  10. JAKvirginia: not till they’re in the guillotine, in a hangman’s noose, or in front of a firing squad. It’s always someone else who takes the grief for them until it’s too late.

  11. JAKvirginia–When they ever learn? I think there was a song about that in the 60’s during the stupid Vietnam War, The answer is that the right-wingers never will ever learn. We have a long battle ahead of us.

  12. Oldmayfly, I believe the song is “If I Had a Hammer.” Without looking it up, I think it was written by Pete Seeger. In my head I hear. Peter, Paul and Mary singing it.

    Peter Yarrow has written a new song for the new struggle, called “Lift Us Up.” If you go to YouTube and search for “Peter Yarrow, Lift Us Up” you’ll find it. I understand it as a call to be courageous, determined and strong.

  13. Interesting swan song for Obama. Too timid to counter even Comey, he goes for bi-partisan in denouncing Russia. They go low and we preach to the ether.

  14. Aggieland Liz says:

    @Debbo it might be Blowin in the Wind by Bob Dylan, which I sing a lot these days!

  15. The song is Pete Seeger’s “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?”

  16. e platypus onion says:

    Where Have All the Flowers Gone
    Peter, Paul and Mary
    Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?
    Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?
    Where have all the flowers gone?
    Young girls have picked them, every one
    Oh when will they ever learn, oh when will they ever learn?
    Where have all the young girls gone, long time passing?
    Where have all the young girls gone, long time ago?
    Where have all the young girls gone?
    Gone for husbands, every one
    Oh when will they ever learn, oh when will they ever learn?

    Pete Seeger wrote it. Any number of folks covered it. J. Patton wins the internets today.

  17. Woke up this AM to front page of Washington Post where the CIA and the FBI are snarling and spitting at each other over the Russian intrusion into the election. Of course, this is really no different from their shared enmity of past years. My money is on the CIA. They are way damn good at finding the skeletons int he closets of even FBI execs and agents. No wonder Mcturtle shows no love for the CIA!

  18. “Perhaps Kentucky voters will wake up and see what a horrible, evil old useless fart they keep in power.”

    the good citizens of KY (you know, like the sex lubricant) have certainly had both enough time, and enough evidence presented, to remove him from office. they know what he is (along with Rand Paul), what he stands for, and continue to re-elect him. I must assume that they support everything he is/does/stands for, and that they are just basically horrible people. can a federal law, requiring the entire population of KY be deported, be passed? it would be for the betterment of the country as a whole. we’ll keep the state, just rid ourselves of the awful people currently occupying it.

  19. Cpinva: I’m from southeast Texas. And not at all indicative of the political leaning of my area. I feel pretty certain that Kentucky has some liberals as well.

  20. It is just not enough that he is going to Hell…..I want him to suffer here on earth, too. Well, him and a lot of others.

  21. I’ve had the privilege of voting against Senator Terrapin six times, unfortunately to no avail. His term is up in 2018. In 2012 he made noises like it was his last election, but I wouldn’t trust him not to change his mind and try to be the next Strom Thurmond.

    OTOH, I can attest that the City of Louisville is quite blue and welcoming of diversity. Great local food, local beer and local bourbon. It is known as a tough place for chain restaurants. It’s not quite Austin, but houses are a lot cheaper.

    Is Mitch a peter-puffer, inquiring minds want to know!

    The following song is dedicated to every Chickenhawk in this country especially George Bush and the rest of the republicans who love to start wars, but are no where to be found when the fighting starts!!
