11 GOP traitors in US Senate vote for debt ceiling increase | Beaufort County Now | get bill over fillibuster hump; allow Democrats to spend

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

In a devastating sell out, led by Mitch McConnell, eleven "Republican" US senators have voted with the Democrats to get McConnell's debt ceiling increase bill past the fillibuster hurtle.  This virtually assures its passage, which will allow Democrats a spending spree.  Until McConnell sold out, Republicans had the Biden agenda on the ropes.

For North Carolina, while we expected to see regular sell-outs Tillis and Burr on the list, for once they were not.  They probably grasped that doing so would have jeopardized establishment liberal Senate candidate Pat McCrory, who is a clone of Burr and Tillis.


While Republicans should be standing up to the far left, instead we are seeing disgusting cave-ins to facilitate the far left agenda.  Weak kneed Republicans are becoming accomplishes in the destruction of America.  North Carolina has just seen the same thing with Phil Berger (ThunBerger?) producing a radical Green New Deal bill in the state Senate that gave far left governor Roy Cooper everything he wanted to upend our energy supply, and Tim Moore jump on board.  Way too many sheeple in the GOP legislative ranks followed them.  While the majority of Republican US Senators rejected McConnell's betrayal, that did not happen with the Green New Deal in the legislature.

Hopefully real Republicans in the US Senate will proceed to replace Benedict Arnold McConnell as GOP Senate leader.  In the state legislature, only a fruit basket turnover in the primaries can cure the problem.

In the US Senate, Republicans had for once been standing united until their own traitorous leader sold out to the Democrats, and Republicans were winning until McConnell snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory.

McConnell's connection to Red China should be a huge concern. His position on this legislation, like on many things, is in China's interests, not in the interests of the US, particularly not of Republicans.

McConnell was one of the first politicians to visit China after the Tianamen Square massacre, taking his ethnic Chinese wife along. While there, the ChiComs offered to create a shipping company and gift it to McConnell's father-in-law, with partial ownership in his wife. The Chinese government provided the ships, the crews, and the cargoes. The offer was accepted. That shipping company is now one of the largest in China, and a significant McConnell family asset, which will become much larger at the death of McConnell's father in law. This means McConnell will always look out for the interests of the ChiComs, and right now the ChiComs and China Joe Biden have lots of common interests.

This is a very corrupt arrangement and one that should not be tolerated by the GOP Senate caucus. China very much wants the US hamstrung by the Green New Deal while they keep making most of their power from coal, which is a lot cheaper and more dependable. That gives China an economic advantage over the US and Europe. China wants Biden to get his $3.5 Trillion green new deal bill, and Mitch stabbed the GOP in the back to help them do it.

A recent analysis showed that already Biden economic policies are costing each family an extra $175 per month, which is outrageous. It is even worse when Republicans cave in to Biden as McConnell did to allow Biden to do more to destroy our purchasing power.

On another site, they sometimes use the term "Vichy Republicans" after the Vichy French regime that collaborated with the Nazis. That is a perfect term for traitors like McConnell, and for that matter for Phil Berger and Tim Moore for what they did to us in North Carolina with their Green New Deal betrayal. They are collaborators with the Democrats on extremist policy just as much as Marshall Petain collaborated with the Nazis.

Taxpayers will pay a lot for a long time for McConnell's betrayal, and North Carolina ratepayers and taxpayers will pay a lot for a long time for Berger and Moore's betrayal. We need to be asking our legislators and Senators why they elect such rotten, dishonest leadership, and we need to ask ourselves as voters why we tolerate legislators and Senators who do not change out the leadership. We once had a congressman, Walter Jones, who was not afraid to stand up to rotten leadership, but elected officials like Walter are, unfortunately, few and far between. His successor, Greg Murphy, is more of a suck-up type.

It is those of us here at the grassroots who will pay for this treachery by Republicans who are supposed to be leaders but actually are collaborators with the enemy.
