The moral outrage of Mitch
McConnell’s cowardly leadership

Conservative Review, by Chris Pandolfo

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 2/10/2018 2:41:57 PM

A travesty occured in the chambers of Congress last night and early this morning. Republicans in Congress exposed themselves as hypocrites and frauds by passing an unconscionable two-year budget deal that will explode this year’s deficit and add $1.5 trillion to the debt. This is a level of spending that is three times larger than government spending in President Obama’s final year in office. A majority of Republicans in both chambers of Congress voted for the bill, and President Trump signed it Friday morning. Whatever pretense of fiscal conservatism the Republican Party once professed has vanished from all but a few

I´m with #2 on this There are fundamental threats to the country that are far worse than the budget problem - AND if those threats come to pass there will be far less control over the budget even than we have now.

This is not to trivialize the budget issue. It is serious. But the threats are for the short term even more serious.

Plus, the Dems kind of put away all of the DACA garbage after it failed the first time. I´d rather get most of something than all of nothing.

Trumpeters, you cannot defend or dismiss Trump’s mad spending while criticizing Obama for same. Just 18 months ago candidate Trump promised to begin reducing the national debt sent soaring by Obama. Deficits and debt are bad, and they cannot be passed off as simply less important than ____.

This spending bill proves that Trump, McConnel, Ryan and others are microphone Republicans, ready to sound conservative in front of the mike but willing to give away our tax dollars to buy the 2018 elections and set up Trump for 2020.

One has to wonder what forces are making these people vote for ridiculous nation busting spending, when the outcomes are obvious. Must be someone bigger than Soros, something bigger than a 3rd world nation with a few baby nukes.

I think I´ll go out and buy a mansion, a yacht and maybe a nice Bentley. I cant afford any of those things, but hey, its good for the economy and there seems to be no penalty.

Nice rant, but it means essentially nothing.

So much of government spending is on autopilot and incrementally increasing. The debt service has to be paid. Every year discretionary spending as a percentage of overall outlays decreases. And against that background the question becomes, just whose "spending" is to be decreased - ours or theirs?

The writer seems to forget that we do have an opposition party, however crooked or disgraced they might be, and their programs and services are important to the tens of millions who vote for them (as well as, in truth, some of us). Spending cuts of our choosing cannot be imposed in a vacuum.

If the writer feels betrayed he should realize that it is less a question of patriotism than acknowledgement of the intractable fact that politics is the pursuit of the possible.

Nice try, #5, but President Trump has already proven he is more conservative by far than the GOPe who always mouth conservative platitudes but never follow through. Trump has to work with Senate LEADERSHIP that is not interested in a real and accountable budget. They do not make an issue of even millions of dollars of waste, fraud and abuse. For all their many Oversight Committees, it is Trump alone who is really battling for honesty and transparency. This Senate leadership was that way before Trump showed up. Do I wish President Trump had held his ground and said no? Oh yes. I am very disappointed. I am horrified that one lone Senator (Rand Paul, M.D.) was the only profile in courage Thursday night.

Sorry, #5, but the big difference is Obama never actually had a budget. He had 8 years of CR´s, and if you take his 2 years in the Senate too, it´s been 10 years since an Appropriations budget has been presented.

The current budget gets 60 days to work through appropriations process which Republicans have been pushing for 4 years now, but Democrats always say no because it will actually adjust spending instead of using the previous year´s spending, and adding COLA.

My big worry is the defense spending, and the likelihood much of it will end up in Democrat districts which they´ll get credit for. That the GOP wasn´t smart enough to ensure the spending projects end up more in GOP districts wherever possible. After all, the Dems forced their social spending which likely helps inner-city district which trend Dem.

Nothing will change until the grassroots call for a Convention of the States. At such a convention, link their pensions to the number of years they were in office during a balanced budget. Heck, link term limits to such a condition as well: The budget was balanced during your term in office? You get to run for another term.

Well, in the last three elections we voted in a House of Representatives, then voted in a Senate, and finally voted in a president. What did it get us? Trump has now said the solution to a balanced budget, etc is to vote in more Republicans in congress. Okay, I´m up for it, BUT only if Trump promises to lobby to help get rid of McConnell and Ryan in leadership and put in people from the Freedom Caucus. Those two are weak sisters.

Neither McConnell nor Ryan is going to go anywhere unless there are members of their respective legislative bodies willing to challenge them and have enough votes lined up to back up their bids. In the absence of that the only alternatives to McC and Ryan are Schumer and Pelosi.

And unless/until we as a people are willing to tackle the entitlements any curbs on federal spending will be cosmetic or temporary. For better and worse, this is the world we´ve created over the last 60 years or so.

Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith, the state’s commissioner of agriculture and commerce, is expected to be named by Gov. Phil Bryant during a news conference today in Brookhaven as the interim replacement for Thad Cochran in the United States Senate. Hyde-Smith, 58 of Brookhaven, would be the first woman to serve the state as a member of the U.S. House or Senate. As the interim senator, Hyde-Smith is expected to run in the November special election that will be held to elect a replacement to complete Cochran’s current term that ends in January 2021.

The Republicans’ central Senate super PAC is making a major push to ask its donors to give directly to GOP Senate candidates, including by enlisting top GOP strategist Karl Rove to solicit donations. There is heightened urgency for candidates to step up their fundraising game after Tuesday’s 18th Congressional District race in Pennsylvania, said officials from the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC that is a part of the American Crossroads network of big-money GOP groups founded with help from Rove. GOP outside groups poured heavily into the race — a reliable Republican district that President Trump carried by 20 points in

Eleven Republicans stepped forward before a Thursday evening filing deadline to challenge former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in the Utah Senate race, including a state lawmaker who says an "establishment insider" can´t fix problems in Washington.

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is under attack in his race to replace retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, in a new ad released Thursday labeling the former Massachusetts Gov. as an establishment “flip-flopper” with “liberal Massachusetts values.” “The D.C. establishment loves Mitt Romney,” the ad narrator states. “But Utah voters have a better choice.” The ad released by right-wing primary challenger Utah attorney Larry Meyers, brings back popular lines of attack that were used during Romney’s run for the White House in the 2012 election cycle, accusing Romney of changing his position on key issues important to Republican primary voters.

One of the Senate’s chief dignitaries is apparently done mincing words when it comes to policies — and those who back them — he disagrees with. Supporters of President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care overhaul are “the stupidest, dumbass people” Sen. Orrin Hatch has ever met, he said Thursday at a conservative think tank lecture, CNN reported. The 83-year-old Utah Republican, who is retiring at the end of his term next year, was delivering remarks about the GOP tax code overhaul at the American Enterprise Institute when he shifted gears to torch the Affordable Care Act.

With Orrin Hatch retiring, erstwhile GOP nominee and onetime prominent Trump critic Mitt Romney seemingly has a clear path to becoming Utah’s next senator. But a hard-right faction within the state’s Republican Party has taken a drastic step that could derail him. Over the weekend, the faction passed a bylaw that allows Utah Republicans to expel any candidate that qualifies for the ballot via signatures — the route Romney plans to take.

Mitt Romney is finally going to Washington. And Romney is going there on a mission: to bring “Utah’s values” to the nation’s capital, he explained in a video last Friday kicking off his campaign to replace the retiring Orrin Hatch in the U.S. Senate. A Senate campaign launched from Utah is neither the starting point, nor the D.C. destination that Romney had long envisioned. A decade ago, the former governor of Massachusetts had hoped to make a trek to the White House south from Boston, where he built his sizable fortune and national profile.

Mitt Romney´s extensive resume has many Republicans looking to him to take on a role in the Senate as a political and moral counterweight to a president many in the GOP see as divisive and undignified. First he has to get elected. The 2012 GOP nominee for president announced Friday he is running for the Utah Senate seat being vacated by GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch. Romney, 70, is among the best-known names in U.S. politics. He has been a successful businessman, governor of heavily Democratic Massachusetts, Olympics rescuer and, more recently, one of his party´s fiercest critics of President Donald Trump.

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

President Trump says he didn´t collude with Russia in 2016, promising something to a foreign country in exchange for his installation as president. That seems increasingly likely to prove true. Where they do not spring from simple malignancy, critics’ arguments that Trump used Russian intervention to win the election are mostly an excuse to avoid the plain truth that Hillary Clinton deservedly lost because she was an awful candidate. And the country is better for that result. We aren’t persuaded, either, that the Russians’ paltry $100,000 in Facebook spending had anything to do with Trump’s win, given that very little of it

It makes little sense to talk about knots in isolation when it’s the net that matters. Cities are part of the system we’ve invented to keep people alive on Earth.
