Via TTN:

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell broke with the Republican National Committee (RNC) over key issues. McConnell went a step further than the RNC and many other Republicans and labeled the Jan. 6th Capitol riot a “violent insurrection.”

The Hill reports:

“It was a violent insurrection with the purpose of trying to prevent a peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election. … That’s what it was,” McConnell said.

The RNC sparked fierce backlash after it described Jan. 6, when a mob of former President Trump’s followers breached the Capitol, as “legitimate political discourse” in a resolution censuring Kinzinger and Cheney.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel appeared to try to clarify the resolution, alleging in a statement that the two GOP lawmakers were involved in persecuting citizens “engaged in legitimate political discourse” but “that had nothing to do with violence at the Capitol.” The last section was not in the RNC resolution.

The top Senate Republican also criticized the RNC’s recent decision to censure the two House Republicans saying the job of the RNC was to support GOP lawmakers, not single them out.

“This issue is whether or not the RNC should be sort of singling out members of our party who may have different views from the majority. That’s not the job of the RNC,” he added about the censure resolution.

Former President Trump responded to McConnell in a message through his Save America PAC.

“Mitch McConnell does not speak for the Republican Party, and does not represent the views of the vast majority of its voters. He did nothing to fight for his constituents and stop the most fraudulent election in American history. And he does nothing to stop the lawless Biden Administration, the invasion of our Borders, rising Inflation, Unconstitutional mandates, the persecution of political opponents, fact finding on the incompentent Afghanistan withdrawal, the giving away our energy independence, etc., which is all because of the fraudulent election. Instead, he bails out the Radical Left and the RINOs,” Trump said.

“If Mitch would have fought for the election, like the Democrats would have if in the same position, we would not be discussing any of the above today, and our Country would be STRONG and PROUD instead of weak and embarrassed,” he continued.

Stabbing President Trump in the back, calling for his impeachment are way more than differing views, they were hateful actions.

Beyond hate filled the R.I.N.O.’s perpetuated a NWO Agenda of a central new world government—NO CONSTITUTION/ bill of Rights–no Magna Carta JUST DESPOTIC RULE. George Herbert Walker Bush was the baggage the Internationalists (people without a country) in the Republican that had to kill any that oppose such as Regan and Trump–the Democrat Internationalists had J.F.K. slaughtered and installed the Puppet L.B.J. —the murdering bastard even paid to have his sister’s life to end by murder.

You can’t blame Mitch! I’m sure he’s been reminded many times ( like The Godfather said) that one day his Chinese connections will “ request a favor he cannot refuse”. Maybe they finally called !!

Mitch is an embarrassment to the Republican Party in this case. Shame on him. It is one of the reasons I call myself an independent today. The Republicans, for the most part, are a big reason we have this problem in America. We let the Democrats do whatever they please without a fight. It is wrong headed.

What a snake.
A China sycophant because they made him disgustingly rich.

Never done a day’s work in his life that wasn’t corrupt.

Trump exposed him as a tantrum throwing toadie for China

Extremely dangerous to America’s freedom.

The 1987 bombing of the Republican offices in the Capital by the Democrat supported leftist was an insurection causing millions of dollars of damage. Compared to that the January 6th mostly peaceful incursion into the Capital with Capital Guards waving people in would be like comparing a forest fire to a camp fire. Worse was President Clinton commuting the sentences of two of the leaders of the bombing! Besides, Pelosi is the one mostly guilty for the J6 incursion as the Capital Guards would not have opened the doors and waved people in without her orders. Pelosi is the one that needs to be investigated first and foremost!!

Mitch McConnell another ” elite capture” by Xi.

The most amazing elite capture by Xi was Hunter Biden proxy for the Vice President Joe Biden.

He must have been ecstatic when the principal became President.

When the President finishes his meeting with Xi he will tell the American people what he is allowed to say.

That is called ” Permissible Criticism”.
