What a disgusting cesspool of self-serving corruption is the nation’s capital and no better example of that can be found today than Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell who, according to longtime political activist, Ned Ryun, was a primary source of the anti-Roy Moore stories that are now attempting to sway the upcoming Alabama special election and help clear the path for a Trump impeachment attempt in 2018.
“…I strongly suspect it’s a very short list of people, all who are associated with Mitch McConnell – whether it’s Josh Holmes, whether it’s Karl Rove, might even be Steven Law – I don’t know, but I strongly, strongly suspect somebody out of the McConnell camp planted the story. It was planted. This came with the blessing of Mitch McConnell at some point, that he was going to take a political shot at Roy Moore.”
According to whispers, it wasn’t just taking “political shot” at Moore that motivating the McConnell camp. They want Roy Moore out of the way and replaced with someone of McConnell’s choosing, or even Moore’s Democrat opponent, Doug Jones, a man whose career is linked to the Bill Clinton administration. Moore would be a vehement defender of POTUS Trump and his policies. If McConnell is to succeed in laying the groundwork for an impeachment trial and vote in the Senate, he will need fewer senators like Roy Moore to contend with.
McConnell is said to know actual impeachment proceedings remain a distant possibility, (the Paul Ryan-led House would first have to vote to impeach) but he is more determined than ever to be ready should that opportunity present itself. For those who might scoff at the notion of a Republican Congress actually pursuing articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, simply recall the failed votes to repeal and replace Obamacare, the ongoing troubles to pass tax cuts, and the number of Republican senators who continue to openly speak out against the President.
The motivation to go after Trump is there. What is left is a simple matter of numbers. Getting rid of a Roy Moore and replacing him with an anti-Trump senator would give McConnell that much more leverage to make his desire to eliminate Trump and restore Establishment control a reality.
The globalist-controlled economy is set to deliver Donald Trump a five-trillion+ dollar face slap. So goes the whispers of some longtime anti-Trumpers in D.C. and Wall Street. The timing of the calamitous “correction” is to be soon and the Establishment Media is already preparing the “blame Trump” 24/7 storylines.
The motivation is simple. These economic giants and their political pawns want to develop a nationwide Trump backlash among tens of millions of Middle Class voters who remain loyal to the President. They have determined the best way to do that is to reach into voters’ collective pockets and rip out some cash in the form of a market correction/crash that will decimate savings, retirement accounts, and the ability to make month-to-month payments.
There are definite signals something is afoot. The dollar has weakened in recent days. The pace of high yield debt sales is quickly increasing. Long-term and short-term bond sales are at nearly the same levels – a development that normally precedes a significant economic slowdown – or possible recession.
Congress has its hands all over these developments. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues to chip away at what was initially sweeping Trump-proposed tax cuts and reforms. Now? The McConnell-directed cuts are minimal and the reforms are nearly non-existent. He and others in Congress who share his anti-Trump views will not allow the President to succeed in giving the American Middle Class the kinds of tax cuts and reforms it so desperately needs for such cuts and reforms would initiate the kind of economic growth not seen in more than twenty years and that would be a clear victory for the Trump administration.
McConnell is doing all he can to make certain that doesn’t happen. He wants a weakened Trump in 2018 and beyond to ensure Trump either decides to not run for a second term or is defeated in the primaries by an Establishment candidate who has the approval of McConnell and the globalist powers who finance his existence.
The economic shakeup is to coincide with an even more strident scandal-ridden attack on POTUS Trump primarily created by Deep State operatives whose primary goal remains destroying the President. No deference will be given. No accusation deemed too low.
The greatest hope to counter this effort is for Mr. Trump to somehow navigate a legislative tax cut/reform victory in Congress before the end of the year. He does have a handful of allies in Congress attempting to help him do so. These are men and women pure of heart and purpose who know the extent of the D.C. swamp’s desire for self-preservation.
And as always, POTUS Trump has YOU.
Will it be enough?
We’re about to find out.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Establishment Senate cohorts are feeling some heat this week. The more conservative wing of the House has managed to push House Speaker Paul Ryan into a scheduled vote on a proposed tax cut bill which will then place focus on McConnell who continues to quietly push his colleagues to either delay or water down the Trump-inspired tax changes to make them little more than a symbolic gesture. Allowing Mr. Trump a significant legislative win is the last thing McConnell is said to want to be a part of – a fact the President is well aware of.
The problem for Senator McConnell is that the Trump White House is currently riding high on the success of the Asia trip and Mr. Trump is said to be more determined than ever to see a tax reform bill get through Congress before the end of the year. Further complicating matters for McConnell is a small but increasingly focused insurgency going on within the Senate itself said to be led in part by Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
The former political rivals have become stronger allies of late. Though the two don’t always agree politically, Trump values Senator Paul’s honesty. The President feels when Paul gives him his word on something he can be trusted to keep that promise – a rare thing among the political swamp rats of D.C.
Whispers continue to swirl that West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is considering breaking with his party and voting with Republicans on the tax cut bill. It is the White House’s hope Manchin’s example will spur a few other Democrat senators to do the same. This would add yet further pressure on McConnell to push the legislation forward to a vote soon after the House succeeds in doing so.
Within hours of AF1 setting down back in D.C. the President will travel to Congress to meet in person with the House Republican leadership. It is a meeting Speaker Paul Ryan might not have agreed to just a few months earlier but now with his own re-election bid looming in 2018 he has apparently grown more favorable to at least appearing to want to work with POTUS Trump. This move was likely further aided by growing discontent among more conservative Republicans in the House regarding what they view to be Ryan’s ineffective and Establishment-driven tenure as Speaker.
Watch for some serious work taking place between the Trump White House and leading members of Congress over the next 72-hours.
Mr. Trump is very motivated to get this tax bill done as he feels the American people don’t just deserve it but truly need it.
Mitch McConnell is a D.C. dinosaur and and an elitist member of the political establishment who has never been a supporter of the Trump presidency. When McConnell failed to cobble together enough senators to pass a much-needed healthcare reform bill, the Trump White House turned to South Dakota Senator John Thune, signaling to every other Republican in the Senate that it is Thune and not McConnell who has the President’s trust.
It is an interesting choice by the President given Thune was among the earliest and more vocal Senate opponents of Mr. Trump’s then-insurgent presidential campaign. Trump is a man who prizes results above all else, though, and it appears he believes Thune is the one to ensure the Senate finalizes passage of its healthcare reform bill.
Just this morning Senator Thune was pushing back against recent media reports that suggest President Trump has not been involved in the ongoing healthcare reform deliberations:
“The president has been very involved. He’s engaged with individual members that have specific concerns they want addressed. He’s engaged in our entire conference as you saw yesterday. He had all Republicans come down to the White House and convey to them the sense of urgency in getting something done, and rescuing the American people in what is a failed Obamacare system,” Mr. Thune, South Dakota Republican, said on Fox News.
As of now Thune and the Trump White House are pushing for a Friday vote. If that happens, the 55-year old Senator Thune’s standing within the Republican-controlled Senate will be strengthened considerably while 75-year-old Mitch McConnell will clearly be in the final years of his D.C. relevance.
The message from President Trump is clear. Either get things done or get out of the way.
It appears more and more in D.C. are finally getting the message.
