Maybe a second glance is in order.

If there is one person who is hated more in politics than Trump, and the Squad, it HAS to be Mitch McConnell.

Why does he hate America so much? This isn't the first time he has blocked things against Russia, clearly he has more vested interest in Russia and a few select oligarchs, than he does the USA.
This guy old f*** McConnell needs to be tried for treason against the United States of America.

Anyone surprised by the GOP not clamping down on foreign election influence are apparently not familiar with the term "Dance with the one who brought you"

From NPR;

CORNISH: What have you learned about what the government is doing to stop foreign interference this year?

MYRE: So the kind of phrasing you hear is that it requires a whole of government effort involving multiple agencies. But let's try to break it down into two key parts here. One is Department of Homeland Security, which is working with all the states to do security for voter rolls and the actual election machinery, the real nuts and bolts of it. But this is still a relatively new process. You've got 50 different states to work with. So it takes a lot of coordination. Even if everybody has goodwill, it - the coordination part is pretty difficult.


No light switch here. maybe knowing who's Americans and is registered to vote lleaglly with and ID might help.

CORNISH: And the other part?

MYRE: Well, this is what the Justice Department has raised in the past week or so. They've talked about looking at a range of threats. They've mentioned five different things. But perhaps the most important of them is attempts, which the Russians did previously and will presumably try to do again, of sowing division on these issues that are really divisive - immigration and gun - gun control and abortion. The Justice Department also says it's going to alert the public when it finds evidence of this. So this would be a real break from what we saw two years ago.


So when people are mired in talking points they vote for who gives them the most. What are the most divisive points? We know it's not the economy for most of us (this time), so it becomes more of issues of morality and personalities.

Guns are protected (2nd amendment)
Abortion is protected (Roe vs Wade)

Once you understand that little or no change can take place on the above two points.... then Immigration is the one that could be the most divisive IMO. Protection of our democracy are facts. Not demagoguery.

Secure fair elections--too much of a chance that the Dems would win.

How is McConnell explaining his refusal to secure the election?

Moscow Mitch is trending big-time on twitter--has he no shame at all? Especially after the discovery that his wife has been making deals with the Chinese and securing contracts for her family.

Wow, he's not just Moscow Mitch, he's Corrupt Moscow Mitch.

I appreciate the affirmation of demagoguery right after my post.... well done.

Details, details otherwise the bumper sticker claim, 'blocks two security bills' is just another broad spectrum political whine.


Harry Reid still tion from both dems and repubs.


Love Trump!

I take that to mean that they don't care as much about security of our country (and protection of its cyber and election borders), as it does winning, because they think Russia will help them win.

This is shocking and tells every citizen that our country is being invaded, with help from the Republicans.

Every American who cares about the sanctity of our country will be appalled by this. I think the Republicans will carry this stigma until the current crop of Republican politicians is gone. History will not be kind to McConnell and the others.

I wonder who should play McConnell in one of the many movies about this shocking several years that happened once upon a time in America - the time that Russia took control of America. Russell Crowe? Gary Oldman? Jon Voight (too tall)?

Luke Wilson could play Mueller (they look alike).

Who could play Trump? John Lithgow? Tall, with added padding and such.

Bottom line is that Republicans want a fundamentalist Christian theocracy and they don't care how they get it. If they need Putin's help to win, then so be it. The end always justifies the means when the end is "God's will."

Congress just gave them nearly $400 million in March for this. Did the states run out of money already ?
