Why is Mitch McConnell trying to scuttle the midterm red wave?

Mitch McConnell is the poster child for everything that is wrong with the Republican Party. He is most definitely a Republican in Name Only, yet the Senate Republicans keep electing him to the top role in that legislative body.

I despise the Republican Party almost as much as I despise the Democrat Party, though for vastly different reasons.  I despise the Democrat Party because they are now indistinguishable from the socialist party that is destroying Venezuela.  I despise the Republican party because they constantly enable the Democrats’ destruction of the United States. 

As you can see from this article, What the Hell Is Mitch McConnell Doing? (townhall.com), Mitch McConnell is enabling the Democrats’ latest attempt to eradicate the Second Amendment.

Well, it would seem the 60-vote watch regarding these bipartisan anti-gun talks could be over. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) signaled that he is a ‘yes’ vote on the bipartisan gun control package that’s being hashed out up on the Hill.  It includes funding for mental health and school security, but also provides funds to incentivize expanding red flag laws. The latter is not good news as the guardrails for overreach have not been set. It impacts veterans at disproportionate rates, and some might argue they’re unconstitutional on its face.  Wherever you stand, there’s also, there’s the whole principle aspect of the matter. Forget that we elect Republicans to be the defenders of Second Amendment rights, if you give Democrats an inch—they’re going to be looking to take 1000-mile chunks in the next round.

Before Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the 10 traitor Republicans, who are helping to draft this deeply flawed pile of excrement, vote on this garbage, they should read this article: There Are Many Potential Problems With The Bipartisan Gun Deal (thefederalist.com)

10 Republican senators have agreed to bribe states into participating in passing emergency risk-protection legislation that allows courts to take guns from those deemed a threat to themselves or others.

When carefully written, red flag laws may have merit, but prudence is rare. In states like California, Connecticut, and Maryland, authorities can confiscate weapons merely on the strength of an uncorroborated allegation by family members, coworkers, law enforcement officers, or others without any kind of genuine due process. Will Senate Republicans guarantee that funding for state laws is contingent on laws that have protections for basic due process rights, penalties for bringing frivolous or false charges against gun owners, and assurances that those who receive the proper mental health treatment get their weapons returned, because in many places a “temporary” petition means a lifetime ban? Seems unlikely.

Not that long ago, Democrats wanted to pass a bill that would have stripped anyone on terror watch and no-fly lists — some 40 percent of whom have nothing even tangentially to do with terrorism — of both their Fifth and Second Amendment rights. Republicans have no reason to trust their devotion to due process.

Mitch McConnell will prove to be a much bigger villain in this destruction of the Second Amendment if this passes becsuse he helped to bring this legislation into existence. McConnell Urges GOP to Work with Democrats on Gun Control Legislation (breitbart.com)

Senate Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Thursday “encouraged” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) to work with Senate Democrats on gun control legislation in a reaction to the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas this week.

If this odious bill passes it will anger the base of the Republican Party, which is sick and tired of being betrayed by the spineless sycophants who make up the leadership of the Republican Party.

    Once again, from the top, he’s not the RINO, you are. He’s what the Republican Party actually stands for, which is mostly a lobby for the Chamber of Commerce. The interests of Republican voters is what he trades to the wealthy and the Democrats to make that lobbying easier. And more profitable.
