There appears to have been a sea change in the US Senate Republican conference following leader Mitch McConnell’s latest backstabbing attempt to tie an amnesty and open borders bill to funding for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.
Multiple GOP Senators are now calling on McConnell to finally step down from his leadership post. Enough is enough. McConnell has consistently been ranked as one of the most hated Republican Senators by GOP voters for a long time. This latest attempt to aid and abet the criminal, unelected Biden regime is just too much.McConnell tapped Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) to be the public face of his latest amnesty scheme with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). McConnell knows Lankford won’t be up for reelection until 2028 and hopes that the voters will forget about this in the meantime.
He pulled the same stunt back in 2013 when he coaxed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) into being the face of Schumer’s previous amnesty attempt. Rubio has won reelection since then and appears to have learned from that mistake. However, the voters have never looked at Rubio quite the same since then. He may never fully regain the voters’ trust in Florida.
Lankford may have been McConnell’s sacrificial lamb this time around but Republican Senators see through it. They hear how much their constituents understand and hate McConnell for his Machiavellian globalist schemes against the American people.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) led a group of Republican Senators this week in calling for McConnell to step down from his post. He was joined by Senators Rick Scott (R-FL), Mike Lee (R-UT), Ron Johnson (R-WI), JD Vance (R-OH), Roger Marshall (R-KS) and Eric Schmitt (R-MO).
Cruz was specifically asked at the press conference if it is time for Mitch McConnell “to go.”
“I think it is,” replied Cruz. “I think a Republican leader should actually lead this conference and should advance the priorities of Republicans.”
That’s been the problem with Mitch McConnell from day one. Ever since Bill Frist retired from the Senate in 2006 and McConnell was elected as the Republican leader, he has been scheming with the Democrats behind closed doors to always find a “compromise.” Oddly, those compromises have never advanced the actual interests of Republican voters. McConnell always pulls out a big victory at the last second for Democrats, accomplishes nothing for Republicans, and then basks in the glow of the New York Times’s praise over what a “savvy negotiator” he is.
While Ted Cruz has been a big critic of McConnell’s backstabbing ways for nearly a decade, he has never had as much backup standing next to him as he does right now. Republicans successfully blocked the amnesty bill in the Senate this week, which would have permanently cemented an open borders policy in Washington.
Republican voters used to have to raise a huge stink to stop GOP Senators from passing disastrous legislation. This time, we didn’t have to lift a finger. Republicans realize now that amnesty is a non-starter with a majority of Republicans and Democrats. The fact that McConnell does not realize this is a further sign that he needs to go away.
McConnell has somehow amassed a personal fortune worth more than $54 million during his career as a “public servant.” He’s obviously corrupt and way past his “sell–by” date. He might even have dementia or some other mental problem, based on the weird freeze-ups that he’s had in the past year. It’s nice to see that a bloc of Republican Senators is finally calling for him to retire. GOP voters have been asking for that since McConnell knifed the Tea Party movement in the back more than a decade ago.
