Have you ever wondered why the Senate GOP may continue as a minority after 2022?

  • Is Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acting on behalf of the so-called establishment wing of the GOP and attempting to keep conservatives from obtaining political power that might oppose establishment interests?
  • Even worse, is Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acting on behalf of a hostile foreign nation like China to keep the GOP from obtaining political power that might oppose their interests?

For years, the McConnell and Chao families have cultivated a relationship that enriches the couple and grants status to the Chaos’ shipping company.

For decades, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife Elaine Chao have maintained a glaring conflict of interest, conducting extensive government business despite the Chao family’s deep ties to China through a maritime shipping company.

For years, the McConnell and Chao families have maintained a symbiotic relationship that grants opportunities to the Chaos’ shipping company, Foremost Group, which largely operates in and on behalf of communist China.

This reciprocity is well documented, but unlike with Hunter Biden, there is less scrutiny from observers, including those on the right, for this “corruption by proxy,” as author and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer calls it. <Source>

  • Is Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell content with his present position and avoiding a possible change in Senate Leadership should the GOP become the majority in 2022?
  • Or is Mitch McConnell simply overrated as a political force and just another jumped-up feckless politician struggling to keep his leadership position?

Mitch McConnell concedes ‘candidate quality’ may mean Republicans fail to flip Senate in midterm elections

The Senate’s top Republican is out with a sober assessment of his party’s chances for taking the chamber in November’s midterm elections, and he says “candidate quality” is a big factor.

Speaking in Kentucky on Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said: “I think there’s probably a greater likelihood the House flips than the Senate. Senate races are just different — they’re statewide, [and] candidate quality has a lot to do with the outcome.”  McConnell continued: “Right now, we have a 50-50 Senate and a 50-50 country, but I think when all is said and done this fall, we’re likely to have an extremely close Senate, either our side up slightly or their side up slightly.” <Source>

Putting his thumb on the scale?

Blake Masters' AZ Senate Race Faces Millions More in Advertising Cuts From McConnell-Backed Super PAC

The Senate Leadership Fund, a Super PAC aligned with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, announced nearly $10 million in advertising cancelations in Arizona and Alaska. The Super PAC already announced cancelations of $13.5 million collectively for Pennsylvania ($7.5 million), Arizona ($3.5 million), Wisconsin ($2.5 million), and Nevada ($1.5 million). 

These cuts come after McConnell made comments about “candidate quality” and forecasted that flipping the House may be more likely than picking up the one seat needed to flip the Senate for Republicans in November. Former President Donald Trump harshly criticized McConnell for his comments, and McConnell has remained in Trump’s crosshairs. <Source>

When is the GOP going to run real attack ads?

Face facts, negative political attack ads work and are the gold standard for any political campaign. So, where are the brutal ads with all of the adverse progressive communist democrat behavior? Hell, where are the pro-GOP ads setting forth the platform and asking people to join the fight to “Make America Great Again?” Ads on energy independence? Ads on crazy Ukraine spending in a corrupt country? Ads on turning boys into girls and girls into boys? What about immigration, sex trafficking, and Fentanyl deaths? Wealth redistribution to college students who are learning to hate America?  

The progressive communist democrats are campaigning 24/7/365 and fighting in the courts – where is a similar GOP defensive countermeasure or offensive strike?      


  • FiveThirtyEight’s modeling suggests. Democrats have a 65% chance of maintaining their 50-seat Senate caucus, which effectively is a majority because the VP is the tie-breaking vote.
  • That’s a 15-point increase in Democrats’ chances in less than a month – a fact FiveThirtyEight attributes to weak GOP candidates in some states.
  • The good news for Republicans is that Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson is favored to win a close race, and Marco Rubio has an 85% chance of winning reelection. <Source>

Bottom line…

As the late California Democrat Jesse Unruh famously noted, “money is the mother’s milk of politics.” So where is the GOP denouncing the Democrats for the shortage of infant formula?

What makes McConnell’s loyalty test worse than Trump’s is that McConnell uses real money, while  Trump pretends giving you his nod is the same as giving you real money.
