McConnell Dismisses Top Republican Voter Concern

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Monday that he isn’t worried about threats to American democracy after a national NBC News poll revealed voters ranked it as the top issue facing the country.

The Republican Senate leader also said that there is “very little election fraud” but that it “happens occasionally,” comments that clashed with ongoing claims from former President Donald Trump’s wing of the party, which has insisted that voter fraud is rampant and the 2020 election was stolen.

McConnell was asked at the Scott County Chamber of Commerce in Georgetown, Kentucky, about the results of NBC News’ latest national poll, which showed a majority of American voters support various investigations into alleged wrongdoing by Trump. The poll was conducted after the FBI searched Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate on Aug. 8.

Asked about Americans ranking threats to democracy higher than other issues, including the cost of living, McConnell told reporters, “I do think it’s an important issue. There were those who were trying to prevent the orderly transfer of power for the first time in American history,” after the 2020 presidential election, “and that was not good.”

But the top Senate Republican does not believe that American democracy is facing immediate danger, citing efforts to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power between the election on Nov. 3 and the inauguration on Jan. 20, 2021, that were “thwarted.”

Mitch is second only to Brandon as a corrupt puppet of the CCP and its interests and agenda. Three most corrupt families in US and politics in order: Biden, Pelosi, McConnell.
Mitch speaks for no one but himself and the CCP interests. Until the GOP gets over its fear of his power by removing him as leader the GOP will never gain real power or be effective.
They will just keep cashing their checks as an effete and useless poser party. Not a real opposition party to anyone but their base. The luxury liner of the ship of fools line.

What would you expect from the turtle, always wanting a back seat to the DuNCe crowd, to negotiate back room deals! On many occasions he has ordered his two fellow RINO’s Cheney and Romney not to show up for certain votes so they/WE lose! He’s part of the deep state, and one of the BIGGEST usurpers of the machinations! If you think Swalwell was compromised with his China concubine, Mitches wife and her connections should BAR him from any public office!

Why the Kentuckians don’t just DITCH MITCH is a mystery to me. It’s like I once asked this good old boy from Arkansas about the Clintons. Quoth he: ‘We don’t like ’em either!’ So I ask: ‘Then who elects ’em?’ He answered me: ‘We don’t know!’ Go figure!

This isn’t just about the normal crisis that government creates. It is our voice that WE THE PEOPLE have that must be heard. Any voice compromised, any One ! Is too many. Even one, must not be tolerated. Clearly McConnell insults the people’s ability to recognize and recognize fraud and the threat it has to silence our voice. Refusal to act against a threat that violates the first of our rights that must be protected. The caviler attitude with which he addresses American voters concern tells me he is no longer able to represent the citizens. Does he no longer care, believing that his rule, his judgment, his superiority is the authority, his word is final. He is now one of the omnipotent who will provide the rule we must have. To speak out against government, to question, cannot be allowed. To question Democracy as they define it is treason and a terrorist action that must be prosecuted. What will we, What can we do about it. Even voices unified are stifled. All media is censored. Our vote corrupted. Our protection under the first amendment is gone. Our second is under attack. As it falls the rest go quickly. The answer is a unified action. The minor demands of recognizing who you want for a partner, or your control of your body will be of little importance as government exerts complete control. Enforcing its rule. With your voice gone, and your ability to enforce it you won’t just jump when told. You will ask how high ! —— I, Grampa
