McConnell Slams Dems for Using January 6 to Push Filibuster Rules Change

The Democrats trying to weaponize January 6 was about as easy to predict as the winter COVID surge.

There was only one reason they wanted to turn today into a memorial: to weaponize the events of the day against the GOP and, more specifically, against Donald Trump.

Part of this is politicizing the day to push Democrat wish list legislation, and Senator McConnell (R-KY) seems stunned that this actually took place.

Enough!

While I have not watched a second of the Democrat events today, I have been checking the summary points.

Joe Biden’s speech read like a political campaign speech.

Kamala Harris was even worse, equating January 6 with two of the more devasting days in our country’s history.

McConnell was fuming over the narratives being used, specifically in Democrats trying to push voting reform legislation to ensure they are the brokers of power in DC.

McConnell stated, “It is beyond distasteful for some of our colleagues to ham-fistedly invoke the Jan. 6 anniversary to advance these aims.

“It is jaw-dropping for colleagues to propose to commemorate that by breaking the Senate themselves.”

He continued, “No party that would trash the Senate’s legislation traditions can be trusted to seize control over election laws all across America.

“Nobody who is this desperate to take over our democracy on a one-party basis can be allowed to do it.”

McConnell was surely referring to statements made by Senator Schumer (D-N.Y.), who stated, “Let me be clear: January 6th was a symptom of a broader illness — an effort to delegitimize our election process, and the Senate must advance systemic democracy reforms to repair our republic or else the events of that day will not be an aberration – they will be the new norm.”

There are two things to take away from all this.

First, we cannot help but mention the fact that many of the allegations made by Democrats are the very acts they are and have been committing.

Secondly, why does McConnell act so surprised by the events taking place?

Is he that out of tune with what is going on these days that he could not see these attacks coming?

It is just more proof that McConnell is a relic that needs to be booted out of office and replaced with someone in leadership that will do more than just talk and pretend to be outraged.

If we do not get more aggressive leadership in Congress, Dems will take over… mark my words.

Do you think Dems will be able to break the filibuster to force through voting legislation?

  1. ALL the SCUM in D.C. is now a simmering blob of useless self serving fools, both Democrat and Republican, After their vote to keep their ability to take full advantage of INSIDER TRADING and fill their OWN pockets with OUR hard earned money, I have no use for ANY of them, THEY ARE ALL THE SAME, POLITICIANS !!!! THE SCUM OF THE EARTH !!! I SINCERELY HOPE THAT THEY ALL DIE AND ROT IN HELL !!! THIS GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE OVERTHROWN !!! F**K DEMOCRATS !! F**K REPUBLICANS !!! F**K JOE BIDEN !!!

  2. If the demorats trash the filibuster they will end up regreting it and IF they do manage to break the filibuster republians could shift parties and become democrats and put the heat on the democrat communists in the democrat party and, again, make the democrats wish they had not broken the filibuster.
    Play their game, of the opposition, let them win the battle, but not the war.

  3. Correct; time for mcconnell and other so called conservative republicans to act, not talk. Also is time for republican strategists to start planning to reverse everything the fool biden and his treasonous administration has strangled this country with.

  4. Not surprised that McConnell is “stunned” that Dems/Schumer would stoop so low as to suggest Republicans/Trump and all who support Trump still, in spite of the Dem’s rendition of “insurrection” instead of “rioting” on Jan 6th.
    We need an in-the-now; in this decade, replacement of McConnell’s position. Unfortunately, it won’t happen before 2022. Meanwhile, the sleazy dishonest Dems will continue to blame Republicans for what they are actually doing because MSM backs them & too many Americans are brainwashed by fake news. We cannot let them change the filibuster or allow them to take the state’s authority over elections! God help us!

  5. Yes, so, Mitch. I will bet the Democrats in Congress are shaking about as much as Putin and Xi are.

  6. Anyone that participated in the Jan 6 memorial should be ashamed to show their face to their states. Hopefully they will all be called out at the next election, They are traitors to the United States. They are not to be trusted anymore.

  7. Come November 2022 I hope we have enough balls to get rid of every one of the old relics in our government we need new blood that’s willing to fight for our needs and our rights

  8. McConnel it is time to take action, not just talk! Everyone of you people are afraid to do anything, before it is to late!

  9. TERM LIMITS!!! Keep these MORONS from doing too much damage. Anyone who’s been in office for more than 2 terms has GOT TO GO!! Those dinosaurs on both sides are useless at best, & CRIMINAL in fact.

    DEFUND the Democrat party! Then outlaw them.

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

This past weekend, pro-life centers were attacked in Virginia, Oregon, and Colorado.

Democrat leaders told activists to “armor up” for “war,” and radicals listened.

Remember when Biden promised he would “transform” the economy? He inherited a robust recovery and now we are on the brink of recession.

Per a new CBS poll, 84% of Americans have been impacted by the #BidenGasHike and 90% by food prices.

71% disapprove of Biden’s handling of inflation.
