'Old Crow' Mitch McConnell, 80, Becomes Longest-Serving Party Leader in Senate History

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who personifies the need for term limits, will become the longest-serving party leader in Senate history on Tuesday.

80-year-old McConnell will remain the Republican minority leader in the 118th Congress, eclipsing the late Democratic Sen. Mike Mansfield’s time from 1961 to 1977.

McConnell overcame ten Republican “no” votes last year to remain minority leader.

The votes against “old crow” McConnell marked the first time he had received a “no” vote as a leader, signaling the tide is turning against RINO establishment Republicans.

“I don’t own this job,” McConnell claimed after the vote. “Anybody who wants to run for it can feel free to do so.”

McConnell will deliver a speech on the Senate floor as he becomes the longest-serving party leader – which will read in part:

“Designated party floor leaders have been a feature of the Senate for more than a hundred years. And no two have done the job exactly alike… [T] here’ve been leaders who rose to the job through lower-key, behind-the-scenes styles; who preferred to focus on serving their colleagues rather than dominating them. And that … is how Senator Michael Joseph Mansfield of Montana became the longest-serving Senate leader in American history until this morning.”

McConnell has faced former President Donald Trump’s wrath for working against conservatives in 2022.

Trump blasted McConnell after the RINO Republican claimed his “political clout has diminished.”

“If the Old Crow waited just 10 days, the Republican Majority in the House could have made the ‘Ominous’ Bill MUCH, MUCH, MUCH BETTER. Just another win for the Democrats, Mitch, that wouldn’t have happened if ‘Trump’ were President!” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

“The Omnibus Bill is an unmitigated disaster. Mitch McConnell pushed it through for the Democrats. So bad for our Country, so bad for the Republican Party!” Trump added.

McConnell has been actively working against conservatives and MAGA.

He defunded conservative midterm campaigns while funding establishment candidates against conservatives, helped President Joe Biden to pass far-left legislation, and voted to give Ukraine over $100 billion dollars.

He also supported gun control measures and even refused to condemn Biden’s speech which labeled “MAGA Republicans” as terrorists.

Under McConnell’s Senate leadership, illegal immigration has continued, the national debt soared, and real wages for American workers have remained stagnant.

McConnell is the reason term limits are needed.

The Senate Republicans should be ashamed of themselves. McConnell needs to be replaced immediately. His disgraceful conduct during the midterms (withdrawing support from certain Trump-endorsed candidates, his allocation of funds to the Alaska primary in order to defeat the Murkowski challenger, etc.) show that he is unfit to lead the Senate Republicans. I hope that there is a way that he can be replaced in the near future.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
