“Vichy Government (1940–45) – Regime established in France after the defeat by Germany in June 1940. Its capital was the town of Vichy, Auvergne, central France. It held authority over French overseas possessions as well as the unoccupied part of France. After German forces occupied Vichy France in November 1942, it became little more than a puppet government.” (Courtesy Encyclopedia. Com)
“Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., thinks that Republicans have a lukewarm chance of flipping the Senate in November, citing “candidate quality” as a factor.
The senator made the honest prediction at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Thursday afternoon.
“I think there’s probably a greater likelihood the House flips than the Senate,” the minority leader anticipated. “Senate races are just different, they’re statewide. Candidate quality has a lot to do with the outcome.”
“Right now, we have a 50-50 Senate and a 50-50 country, but I think when all is said and done this fall, we’re likely to have an extremely close Senate. Either our side up slightly or their side up slightly,” McConnell explained.” (Courtesy FoxNews.com)
Okay, boys and girls. Here are a couple of questions for you:
Why would the top Republican in the Senate not want to be the Majority Leader after the 2022 Midterm Elections…and why would he NOT support EVERY Republican Candidate for the Senate?
Well, the ugly fact of the matter is that Mitch McConnell hates Donald J Trump and the MAGA Movement.
McConnell has a problem: The fact is that the Republicans do not have any chance of success in the 2022 Midterm Elections or the 2024 Presidential Election without the Charismatic Former President.
He probably knows that. However, as a “Vichy” Republican, he is so snobby and scared of losing his power within the Washington Swamp that he refuses to admit it.
Trump is the bridge needed between the Republican Elite roaming the Halls of Power in Washington and average Americans living in the Heartland.
Here’s a well-known “secret”: Those same average Americans, the Republican Voting Base, do not trust the Capitol Hill Establishment Republicans any further than they can throw them.
Americans have watched the Republicans sell them out to the Democrats for years until Trump came along.
Trump connected with average Americans in a way no other Republican has since Ronaldus Magnus (Ronald Reagan).
The Republican Establishment had grown arrogant and aloof, distancing themselves from the people who gave them their cushy jobs on Capitol Hill.
President Trump came along and galvanized the average Americans in “Flyover Country” into a Conservative Juggernaut and a political force to be reckoned with.
He lifted the Republican Party up from the mire of the D.C. Swamp and showed them how to actually stand up to Pelosi, Schumer, and company.
The only problem with an alliance between Trump and the Republican Establishment is the greed and the habit of pushing for political expediency which the Republicans on Capitol Hill have embraced for years.
It’s going to be up to Trump to keep them “honest”.
And, a MAGA Republican Political Tsunami in November will certainly help get things moving in the right direction.
Until He Comes,
