With the passing of Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell emphatically showed us all his true colors: Zero integrity, hypocrite extraordinaire. He committed a truly classless, spineless act.

We can ponder how the Republican Party became the Trump Party but the reality is Republicans in Congress are no longer Republicans, they're a wholly different party and should claim their party the White Nationalist Party.

Congressional Republicans have abdicated their job duties and responsibilities to this White Nationalist coup being performed before our very eyes these past 4 years. However, it wasn't the last 4 years that brought it to fruition.

Mitch McConnell has planned for over a decade to insure that White Nationalists subtly and insidiously infiltrated all levels of government in his generational sustained hate of any human who doesn't look like him. Only in the past 4 years has McConnel,l in tandem with his wife, Elaine Chao, shown their corrupt behavior. McConnell lifted U.S. sanctions on Oleg Deripaska, allowing Rusal to build a shiny aluminum plant in Kentucky he could campaign on. Wife Elaine Chao, now Secretary of U.S. Dept. of Transportation funneled Congressional funds to Kentucky for road improvements, again so McConnell could campaign on it. Mitch McConnell has rightly earned his monkier of Moscow Mitch. He is THE one senator whose only plan is to destroy our democracy. McConnell is the "Hermann Göring," to Trump's Hitler persuasion.

"Make America Great Again, Again?" The America I live in is great and it gets better the more we work at it. It is great because it "was" great. It is great because we keep working to improve it. So who "hates America"? Those who think it is bad now and we need to go back to sometime in the past?

While questionable whether President Trump loves America, it appears clear he doesn't care much about Americans.

CitizenJoe and mwordon are great examples of the Leftists that hate our country.

Mike

If they indeed "hate our country" as you claim, they would be agreeing with you to hasten our country's demise.

mwordon- exclusion and hate? It's the Left that judge people according to the color of their skin, not the Right. And, hate? Do you mean like the examples of hate that are being expressed by the "peaceful" protests of the Left, with their burning, looting and destruction? Spare me the delusions of your Leftist hate mongering.

Here is Robert Reich: "The justice who died on Friday night stood for the integrity of democracy. The Senate leader stands only for Republican gains."

BiII, I agree with your assessment. When there was a vacancy on the Supreme Court earIy in the Iast year of Obama's presidency, Moscow Mitch had much to say about how wrong it wouId be to confirm anyone for the court 9 months before the next presidentiaI eIection. Now, with the eIection a mere month and a haIf away he's promising an immediate confirmation. And peopIe say they Iove this GOP and the president because they are not poIiticaI. You'd have to be deIusionaI to beIieve that. They're not draining the swamp, they ARE the swamp.

CitizenJoe

Bill, you are correct, except: Stuart Stevens' book, It Was All a Lie: How the Republican Party Became Donald Trump makes the point that the Republican Party has no core values, only the search for power. It's not really hypocrisy if he believes in nothing.

The Republicans hold the Presidency and the Senate and we shouldn't put in a new justice? Our only chance of having a two party system is to install a Supreme Court Justice that is a Constitutionalist. The Left hates our country and we should do what ever we can to protect it.

Please stop with your "the left hates our country" nonsense. Not only is the statement untrue, your statement makes you look ridiculous

OregonPatriot

melrosereader- Really? The Progressive Left does not like our country as founded and wants to fundamentally change it. While the Right appreciates the military, law enforcement, traditional family life, traditional marriage and the sanctity of life, the Left unfortunately does not. Just the phrase Make America Great Again grates on the nerves of the Left and sends them running to their safe spaces. No, my statement doesn't make me look ridiculous, it makes me fed up.

WWJD?

melrosereader- it's pathetic when you bring up Christianity and then turn around and vote Democrat. When you quit supporting the slaughter of unborn children I will consider your argument.
