By Kelleigh Nelson:
The leader of the Senate is blaming the failures of the Senate on the President – what’s wrong with this picture?
So, if we lie to the government, it’s a felony. But if they lie to us it’s politics. — Bill Murray
For those looking for security, be forewarned that there’s nothing more insecure than a political promise. — Harry Browne
The chorus from the 1983 song, Promises, Promises, seems apropo for our Senate.
For seven years the Republicans have promised to repeal Obamacare. They claimed they had to have the House, so we gave them the House. Then they said they needed the Senate, so we gave them the Senate. Then they said they needed the White House, and now they have all three, but they’ve still failed to repeal Obamacare. They campaigned on repealing this albatross around our necks to get re-elected, but now they’ve proven that they never really wanted to get rid of it.
McConnell Blames President Trump
McConnell met with his Kentucky constituents at a Rotary meeting, and guess who the Senate Majority Leader, shamelessly blamed for the Senate’s failure? Our President! He said, ““Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before, and I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the Democratic process.”
Sean Hannity has said, “No Senator, YOU are a WEAK, SPINELESS leader who does not keep his word and you need to Retire!”
Listen to McConnell’s excuses.
Mitch is blaming our President for expecting Congress to pass a budget, tax reform, to repeal Obamacare, etc., and he calls those excessive expectations! This is the DC septic system, and it needs to be purged.
Excessive expectations? Seven years wasn’t long enough? You didn’t have a plan after seven years of how to eliminate Obamacare? It’s not our hard-working President who is at fault.
C’mon Senator, you made a promise when you wanted to be re-elected, and then on December 6th of last year, you clearly stated that, “The very first thing out of the box we’re going to do when we get sworn in is repealing Obamacare. First thing we’re going to do.”
The President heard you, and he expected you were telling the truth, along with your buddies, McCain and Murkowski who both campaigned on repealing Obamacare. And then you didn’t keep the Senate there to work through this so you could get a vote that would finally repeal this horrid burden on American taxpayers. Nope, you let them all go home, and they will not face their constituents and we know why.
Is it any wonder Lou Dobbs is saying “Ditch Mitch,” and my friend Ruth added to Dobb’s statement with, “Ditch Mitch and Ditch McMaster Faster!”
GOP Told Trump Repeal Was a Slam Dunk
Congressman Peter King said, “The president was told early on by legislative leaders that they could pass the repeal quickly.” The GOP said it was a “slam dunk.”
In Trump’s August 10th press conference, he was asked about his relationship with Senator McConnell. He said, “I just want to get repeal and replace done. I’ve been hearing repeal and replace now for seven years. I said, ‘Mitch, get to work and let’s get it done.’ They should have had this last one done. They lost by one vote. For a thing like that to happen is a disgrace. And, frankly, it shouldn’t have happened. That I can tell you.”
Can you imagine what we would accomplish as a country if our Republican Congressional leadership wasn’t made up of Trump hating left-leaning spineless cowards?
Eleven GOP swamp-rat Senators have tweeted support for McConnell…McConnell’s sidekick and bagman, Cornyn TX; Corker TN; Tillis FL; Isakson GA; Collins ME; Hatch UT; Gardner OH; Heller NV; Flake AZ; Young IN; Capito WV. Remember these Senators when they’re in the next primary, which is the most important vote.
Thirty GOP Senate snakes, including Luther Strange, are “opposing any effort to curtail the existing rights and prerogatives (including the 60-rule vote to end the Democrat filibuster) of Senators to engage in full, robust, and extended debate as we consider legislation before the body in the future.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell agrees with them.

Buying Allegiance Is Fruitless
I’ve come to the conclusion that our President is too nice of a guy to politicians who will never unite behind him despite the fact they’re in the same party. Elaine Chao is not exactly the kind of Cabinet pick you would expect from outsider Donald Trump.
She is Mitch McConnell’s wife. Her father owns a shipping company, and that very company was caught with 90 lbs. of cocaine on it.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has deep business and political links to China, and McConnell claims he’s an anti-drug warrior. But guess what…
McConnell and his wife received a personal gift from a family member worth between $5 million and $25 million, according to his annual financial disclosure report.
The gift came from Chao’s father, Dr. James S.C. Chao, a wealthy Chinese-born businessman, and it boosted McConnell’s personal worth from a minimum of $3 million in 2007 to more than $7 million.
And that’s just the beginning of her resume.
Open Arms to Never Trumpers
The President invited Willard Romney to interview for Secretary of State, and had dinner with him more than once. This was after Romney openly excoriated Mr. Trump prior to the election and spoke against him at, of all places the Hinckley Institute, even after he had appealed to Trump for monetary help in his Presidential Campaign in 2008, and Trump helped him.
Our President invited neo-con Trotskyite Senator Bob Corker from the State of TN to interview as well. Happily, Corker didn’t get the job but he’s slammed Trump every chance he’s had since then. And how many top business people who are far leftists has he invited to meet with him, over and over again…including Jeff Bezos of Amazon, and Tim Cook of Apple. He has had open arms to all hoping to bring them into the fold.
It hasn’t worked and it never will work because Trump is not a globalist insider. They hate him, and they may be nice to his face, but they will do everything they can to destroy every single promise he made to the American public.
So, Why Endorse Strange?
The Alabama seat left open by Senator Sessions’ appointment as our Attorney General has three Republicans vying for his Senate seat. One is Mo Brooks, a hardcore pro-lifer, Trump supporter, and Constitutional conservative.
Another is Snake in the Grass’ Luther Strange who, as the race intensifies, has falsely attacked pro-Trump candidate, Mo Brooks. Strange is supported by neo-con lackeys, McConnell and Karl Rove. He is an establishment insider. Our ever-pragmatic president should have jumped down McConnell’s throat, but instead he backed Luther Strange to fill AG Sessions Alabama seat.
The true conservative is Mo Brooks, tried and true. Alabama voters do not like and do not trust Luther Strange, so why is our President endorsing someone who is anathema to his policies, who will vote against him, and who is supported by those in Congress who hate Trump. And who the hell advised him to endorse Strange? Does he believe he’ll get McConnell to repeal Obamacare by supporting this moderate?
Judge Roy Moore
The third candidate is Judge Roy Moore, the “10 Commandments” judge, and I hate to say this, but he is not a good choice. He is in the dominionist/reconstructionist (D/R) camp, and he is promoting a Constitutional Convention. Many people have tried to show him historical documents proving how dangerous a new convention would be, but he won’t listen. He believes he can get a marriage amendment by opening the Constitution. What fantasy!
It is hard for me to fathom why Moore, who is a judge, will not read what Chief Justice Warren Burger wrote to Phyllis Schlafly about the risks of opening the Constitution, and why he will not listen to ultra-conservative Judge Scalia’s statements. Neither will he look at precedent of our 1787 Convention where the delegates were to discuss the commerce issue and revise the Articles of Confederation. They closed the doors, threw out the Articles and started anew. This is the precedent. We had statesmen then, we do not have them now. This will happen again if we open our Constitution, because the goal of establishment globalists and George Soros is to eliminate our God given rights.
Dr. Gary North, a leader in the D/R movement, advocates that the Constitution must be scrapped in favor of a new theocratic form of government, a valid reason for D/Rs to want a new convention.
As for Moore’s beliefs, he has set up the Foundation for Moral Law which files briefs in court cases concerning the public display of the Ten Commandments and other First Amendment issues. The foundation also prepares seminars that will teach judges, lawyers, and law students about Old Testament Biblical Law as the basis of America’s laws and Constitution. John Eidsmoe is a prominent Christian Reconstructionist theorist, who works at the Foundation for Moral Law.
Dominionism derives from a small fringe sect called Christian Reconstructionism, founded by a Calvinist theologian named R. J. Rushdoony in the 1960s. Christian Reconstructionism openly advocates replacing American law with the strictures of the Old Testament, replete with the death penalty by stoning for homosexuality, abortion, and even apostasy.
This doctrine comes in both “hard” and “soft” varieties, but D/Rs want a theocratic form of government, where only those of their doctrine will rule in life, art, education, health care, government, family life, law and so on. All these areas are to be based on Old Testament Mosaic Law, which is a theonomy, and the U.S. Constitution will be replaced with a political and judicial system based on Mosaic Law. Link
While most dominionists would say they favor the U.S. Constitution, and merely seek to restore it to the original intentions of the founders, in fact, their views are profoundly anti-democratic. Their worldview is not one based on the rights of the individual as we have come to know them, but on notions of Mosaic biblical law.
In the D/R worldview, those of other Christian doctrines or other religious beliefs are second-class citizens at best. Dominionism means, as a matter of theocratic public policy, reducing or eliminating the legal standing of those who do not share their views. Sounds a lot like Islam, doesn’t it?
The 613 Mosaic Laws
The Mosaic Law was given to us so we would know what sin is. Without going into the exegesis of why Christians are no longer under the Mosaic Law, but are now under the Law of Christ, the answer is in Romans 10:4. It states that our Savior is the end of the Law, and that includes all 613, even the 10 commandments. Hence it has ceased to function. We are justified by faith in Christ, not by the works of the law, because no flesh is justified by works of the law, (Gal. 2:16) just as OT saints were saved by faith. Again, there is no sanctification or perfection through the law. Heb. 7:19.
Torah Law is one unit, and there is no commandment that has continued beyond the cross of Christ. The Law is there and can be used as a teaching tool to show God’s standard of righteousness, and man’s sinfulness and need of a substitutionary atonement. It can be used to point one to Christ (Gal 3:23-25). However, it has completely ceased to function as an authority over individuals. The old law has been disannulled, and we are under the new law…the Law of Christ in Gal 6:2, and the Law of the Spirit of Life in Romans 8:2.
This is a brand-new law totally separate from the Law of Moses. The Law of Christ contains all the commandments applicable to a New Testament believer, nine of which are very similar to those found in the 10 commandments, but are not from the 613 in Mosaic Law.
We simply must elect representatives who will help our President complete the promises he set forth in his campaign. Obviously, McConnell’s choice of Luther Strange is another establishment insider who will work to defeat Trump’s promises. I would hope that Alabamians cast their vote for a man who will help our President and that man is Mo Brooks. We already have enough sewer-rat Republicans to expunge.
