Mitch McConnell Killing Democracy


SENATE MAJORITY MEMBER
MITCH MCCONNELL HAS ANNOUNCED THAT THE SENATE WILL SKIP MUCH
OF ITS AUGUST RECESS. HE ANNOUNCED IT BY SAYING THE
FOLLOWING. AS YOU CAN SEE FROM HIS
STATEMENT, HE IS DOING THIS BECAUSE OF THE OBSTRUCTION BY
THE DEMOCRATS IN RESPONSE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S NOMINEE, BUT
THERE ARE OTHER THEORIES AND MY FAVORITE ONE AND THE ONE THAT I
PERSONALLY BELIEVE IS REALLY AT PLAY HERE HAS TO DO WITH HOW
THERE ARE WAY MORE DEMOCRATS, INCUMBENT DEMOCRATS IN THE
SENATE WHO ARE SEEKING REELECTION AND A LOT OF THE
LAWMAKERS RELY ON THAT AUGUST RECESS TO RAISE MONEY AND FOCUS
ON THEIR CAMPAIGN SO THIS COULD POTENTIALLY HURT THEM
IN THEIR EFFORTS TO GET REELECTED AND KEEP IN MIND,
THERE ARE WAY MORE DEMOCRATS WHO ARE UPPER REELECTION AS
OPPOSED TO REPUBLICANS. A COUPLE OF POINTS TO THE
STORY. 1ST OF ALL, IS IT BECAUSE OF
SEVERAL DIFFERENT REASONS? YES. ARE ANY OF THEM LEGITIMATE? ALMOST 9. LET ME CLAIM ONE BY ONE. ARE THEY DOING IT
BECAUSE THERE ARE 10 DEMOCRATS THAT ARE UP FOR
REELECTION IN TRUMP STATES THAT ONLY ONE REPUBLICAN UPPER
REELECTION IN A HILLARY TAKE WHAT ABSOLUTELY, THAT IS THAT
REALLY WHY THEY ARE DOING AND IN FACT TRUMP IS INSISTING ON THAT
WHICH LEADS TO REASON NUMBER 2. HE IS LIKE I DON’T GET IT, WHY
WOULDN’T YOU PLAY POLITICS, WHAT YOU GUYS? DUMB? THAT IS KIND OF A FAIR
POINT, I WISH OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS PLAY POLITICS LIKE
THAT BUT THEY DON’T. TRUMP THREATENED TO CRITICIZE
THE REPUBLICAN SENATORS THEY WENT ON A BREAK AND DID NOT
PLAY THIS POLITICAL TRICK AND SO THEY GOT SO SCARED OF
TRUMP BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID OF THEIR OWN SHUTTLE,
THEY’RE NOT LEADERS, THEY ARE FOLLOWERS. IT WOULD’VE
BEEN A DOUBLE FOR ME, THE DEMOCRATS WHO RUN THE CAMPAIGN
AND THE REPORTERS DRIVE ME CRAZY. KEEP TALKING ABOUT HOW THEY WANT
TO GO BACK TO THEIR DISTRICTS. HE WAS RAISE MONEY. THEY HAD TO SPEND ALL DAY
RAISING MONEY AND GOING TO FUNDRAISERS WITH CORPORATE
DONORS SO JUST CALL IT LIKE IT IS. IT IS NOT LIKE THEY ARE DOING A
LOT OF TOWN HALLS. THEY ARE NOT DOING THEM. PLEASE FOR A SECOND BE A
REPORTER. ANYWAY, BECAUSE OF THAT THEY ARE
LIKE OKAY, WE HAD THE DEMOCRATS, WE MAKE SURE DONALD TRUMP IS
AHEAD US AND THIRD OF ALL, YES, LET’S PASS ALL, JIM THESE
NOMINEES THROUGH, THE TRUMP ONCE AND MAYBE WE CAN PASS A BILL OR
TWO, BUT WE ALREADY GAVE THE TAX CUTS TO THE RICH SO WE’RE KIND
OF DONE HERE ON THAT FRONT. ON THAT NOTE, CNN, TO BE HONEST
REALLY PISSED ME OFF ON THIS ONE BECAUSE LIKE ALL OF
THEIR ARTICLES, THEY MENTION HOW MITCH MCCONNELL SAID
THAT THE SENATE DEMOCRATS HAVE DONE HISTORIC OBSTRUCTION. THERE QUOTING MCCONNELL, I GET
WHEN THEY SAID THAT BUT IF YOU WANTED TO BE A REPORTER YOU
WOULD GIVE THAT CONTEXT. YOU WOULD NOT SAY I DON’T LIKE
MITCH MCCONNELL OR I DON’T LIKE HIS POLICIES, YOU WOULD
GIVE IT PROPER FACTUAL CONTEXT WHICH I WILL DO FOR YOU. WE’RE GOING TO GRAPHIC 50 A.M. WHAT THAT IS GOING TO SHOW YOU
IS HISTORIC OBSTRUCTION AND YOU WILL SEE WHERE BEGAN. MAYBE YOU WILL BUILD TO SEE
WHERE IT BEGAN. CAN YOU TELL WHERE BEGAN? THE RECORD NUMBER OF
FILIBUSTERS? 0 TO 2 THROUGHOUT MOST OF MODERN
HISTORY. UNDER CLINTON THE REPUBLICAN
START AND THEY GO TO 9. THE DEMOCRATS OF COURSE TALLY
BUT LESS BUT SEVEN FOR BUSH AND THAT IS OVER EIGHT YEARS,
BOTH OF THEM AND THEN OBAMA COMES INTO OFFICE. 27 IN THE FIRST FOUR, 45 AND THE SECOND FOR INCLUDING
THE SUPREME COURT JUSTICE. THAT IS HISTORIC OBSTRUCTION. THAT IS THE CONTEXT YOU NEED. YOU HAVE TO GET UPSET ABOUT IT I
HAVE THE OPINIONS I HAVE YOU SHOULD POINTED OUT,
OTHERWISE YOU HAVE MISLED YOUR AUDIENCE INTO THINKING THE
DEMOCRATS ARE THE ONES WHO DO OBSTRUCTION BUT IT GOT WORSE. AT THE END OF THE CNN
ARTICLE ON THIS, THEY SAID THAT MITCH MCCONNELL BOLDLY BLOCKED
MERRICK GARLAND, PRESIDENT OBAMA’S CHOICE FOR THE SUPREME
COURT. THE BOTTOM HALF OF THIS ARTICLE ON CNN WAS JUST A
LAUNDRY LIST OF GREAT THINGS THAT THEY LOVE ABOUT
MITCH MCCONNELL. IT WAS INCREDIBLE, I ACTUALLY
STOPPED READING IT BECAUSE I COULD NOT. FROM TIME TO TIME CNN HAS
GOOD ARTICLES AND WE QUOTE THOSE AND USE THEM AND WE’RE
HAPPY TO GIVE THEM CREDIT. I THINK THEY HAVE AN ESTABLISHED
ADVICE OVERALL. RIGHT NOW A LOT OF TIMES THEY
WILL HAVE PEOPLE SPEAKING OUT AGAINST TRUMP AND THEN OF
COURSE THE RIGHT WING ALWAYS CALLS IN LIBERAL BUT IT
IS NOT TRUE. IF YOU PUT TRUMP ASIDE, THEY
LOVE GIVING CREDIT TO REPUBLICANS AND SO THIS ARTICLE
IS TOTALLY BIASED IN FAVOR OF REPUBLICANS, NOT DEMOCRATS. WHEN FRAMING THE DEMOCRATIC
ACTION THEY GO HISTORIC OBSTRUCTION. MITCH MCCONNELL SAID IT, I
DIDN’T. HISTORIC OBSTRUCTION. I DID LOOK INTO IT. BLOCKING A SUPREME COURT
NOMINEE FOR A WHOLE YEAR IS UNPRECEDENTED AND LITERALLY HAS
STORY. HAS NEVER BEEN DONE IN AMERICAN
HISTORY. IT WAS HISTORIC OBSTRUCTION. CNN FRAMES IT AS HE BOLDLY
BLOCKED THAT NOMINEE. WHICH ONE IS A QUEST OF IS
OBSTRUCTION BAD OR GOOD. WHEN IT COMES THE DEMOCRATS IT
IS BAD, BUT THE REPUBLICANS, IT’S BOLD AND
BRILLIANT. THAT IS THE BIAS YOU GET IN THE
ESTABLISHMENT MEDIA.

  1. It's not killing democracy on McConnell's part. It's just slick politicking. Republicans do it when they're in power. Democrats will do it when they're in power.

  2. This POS McConnell bitches about dems obstructing. This asshole kept Obama's pick for Supreme Court nominee M Garland by stating the "Biden Rule." There was and is no such thing. McConnell is the Swamp thing. But next to the Trumpft Admin it's easy to forget

  3. The whites aint ever going to let the blacks get ahead they should give us our own land so our people can prosper the US gov should evacuate California and give it to us and then we can prosper as our own nation kick out the whites and let the blackman rule the Black Republic

  4. I can't stand Mitch McConnell. He gave President Obama such a hard time, but cowers in the presence of Donald Trump.

  5. tyt is just playing right into Donald Trump's plan by perpetuating the false narrative that CNN is not reliable information

  6. Republican politicians are the most shameless people on the planet. There seems to be no bottom to their barrel.

  7. I dislike McConnell and I’m a conservative. We do NOT have a democracy. This isn’t a mob rule. We are a constitutional republic. You people are morons and the people who receive their “news” from TYT are bigger idiots.

  8. One thing this tRump geasy mess does is allows Americas idiots a place to show their ignorant rants and raves. russian, bannon, mercer etc bots excepted. They are the butthurt cart bottom feeders of the world and don't realize it. But they love a con like trump.

  9. Mitch McConnell knows obstruction when he sees it. He spent six years mastering the art of obstruction. He is now possibly the world's leading expert on legislative obstruction.

  10. Mitch McConnell is a hypocrite. All the republicans did during Obamas terms is obstruct. I cannot wait for this trump-tard to go to sleep and not wake up. He is a boil on the ass of mankind, and deserves to be lanced. Waaay to old to be relevant in modern times.

  11. America was never a Democracy. A TRUE democracy doesn't have a Electoral College that overrides the ACTUAL number of votes (popular vote). Get rid of that and then we can finally start calling this country a Democracy.

  12. I hope the democrats keep obstructing. In reality, we have only the republican party. The democrats are just there to be a straw-man for conservatives, and I'm sure they'll play along, vote with those wretched republicans, even though they're getting a screwed.

  13. It disgusts me whenever the republicans cry about congressional obstruction. their hypocrisy is indescribable.

  14. Democracy breads weakness. Look at all the young homelessen and women. Is an explosive amount of homeless people in California. Because democracy is over and they are unprepared for real life without government handouts. 😉

  15. Why don't you show the full video of McConnell speaking and not going off your own version of what he said? He clearly says UNPRECEDENTED not HISTORIC.

    Are outright lies all you have left?

  16. If I haven't said it already… I hate turtle people! If that makes me racist, so be it. As a minority I will own it.

  17. What's the minimum number of Senators needed to conduct business?
    Could the Dems just leave en masse without risking Repubs passing legislation in their absence?

  18. RepubliCONs have NEVER liked the democratic process. They always have tried to thwart the Democratic Process. All republiCONs care about is their own ass and their rich masters. They are anit-America.

  19. Mitch McConnell who has lied for years and loves money from the lobbyist is now concerned that mid-terms could possibly turn towards the minority party. The Republicans pathological liar isn't making anyone feel secure in the security of America.

  20. Off topic of the video, we are not a democracy. Democracy is mob rule, no protection for individuals or even groups of people. Is that what democrats want?

  21. Mconnel is a scumbag and a part of the problem with this administration if you can call it an administration.

  22. Mconnell: you think obstruction is your Ally? You merely adopted obstruction. I was born in it, molded by it…

  23. Democrats are going to lose badly in 2018 I'm calling it now, imagine if Bernie Sanders would have had the chance to run for president we probably wouldn't be in this situation.

    CNN pissed off Lindsey Graham the other day it was funny

  24. I'd argue the bigger issue & treat to democracy, only marginally touched here is the focus on this session: Packing the courts. Republicans are actively waging a war on the independence of the judiciary, one started years ago by stripping Obama of the ability to appoint justices. It's a strategy of using the courts as an anti-democratic counterweight to waning political power and it should be a source of shame for all Republicans.

  25. All you have to do to see where Mitch McConnell's priorities lie is glance at the statistics about the state he has helped govern since the mid-1980s. By any measure, Kentucky is a mess*. It is poor, unhealthy, under-employed, non-competitive, poorly educated, addicted, and despairing. While Mitch has been off playing tactician, his state has continued to sink. McConnell is a heartless, cold, ruthless man who is out for himself. Maybe the chickens are finally coming home to roost.
    * Kentucky:
    / #46 in Educational attainment..
    / #46 in Poverty.
    / #43 in Employment.
    / #43 in Medicare quality.
    But #1 in obstructionist politicians.

  26. Wow how can anyone take this crap serious they are so biased it is sickening. That big blue wave gonna be nothing but a ripple in a puddle.

  27. In 1941 the V sign was used to counter Nazi propaganda and maybe it should be used again against Trump's lies and the destructive rhetoric of the Republican Russian Machine!

  28. Senator Mitch McConnell brother-in-law got caught with tons of cocaine and the boat belong to Senator Mitch McConnell true story Google it

  29. Bitch McConnell is probably the most despised and utterly corrupt POS politician that ever lived, w the obvious exception of our nations orange nemesis. Too bad nasty old turtles live such a long time. This country would be that much better if diabolical old hypocrite turtle head would drop dead, or just get the hell out of office ASAP!

  30. Muppet McConnell destroying democracy like his boss the Apricot Hell Hound who has been bough and paid for lock stock and barrell by Putin

  31. Mitch McConnell wants to shove Kavanaugh on America who wants to give Trump Sovereign Immunity from Prosecution.

  32. This man so far into dope, doesn't care about America, he only cares about his party. That is what makes him powerful. Kentucky you should be ashamed to let this bottom feeder to represent your state!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. History will note the failures of Mitch and Ryan…the cowards that put Trumpism over democracy.
    They will be branded as traitors to the United States. They will go down in history as failures along with, Donnie the fascist dictator wannabe.

  34. Wrong move turtle headed krought shit for brains!! Hope the jobless hill folks strings up your old dinosuar ass up high in a HICKORY TREE you treasonous turd!!!!!

  35. Proof that decepticons do exist!!! But their planet Cybertron is our election booths controlled by the commies. And the orange commander in theif is a commy space balls "licker" KYLE

  36. Mitch the bitch started chipping at democracy when he told the gop conference in 2008 "we need to make Obama a one termed president.

  37. Hes lying there going to get there asses kicked in November. Thats why. Lying bitch. Rape-publicans are suck lying pieces of dog shit president shit
