Conservatives Demand McConnell Resign

( The leaders of several conservative groups called Wednesday for Mitch McConnell to step down as Senate majority leader, arguing the Kentucky Republican and the rest of his team should be ousted from their posts because they have not implemented the conservative agenda they promised.

“We call on all five members of the GOP Senate leadership to step down, or for their caucus to remove them as soon as possible,” Ken Cuccinelli, the former attorney general of Virginia who now leads the Senate Conservatives Fund, said at a Wednesday press conference on Capitol Hill.

All the leaders come from anti-Republican establishment organizations with ties to the Tea Party movement. They have long been thorns in McConnell’s side and have backed conservative challengers to Republican incumbents in Senate races. They include representatives from FreedomWorks, the Tea Party Patriots and For America.

“Mitch McConnell has been a failure in the Senate and has cost Republicans almost a year of victories,” said Adam Brandon, president of FreedomWorks. “He has demonstrated that he either does not understand the frustration coming from conservatives and the urgency of passing key legislation – or he does not care.”

“If this was a football team, and you’d lost this many times, you’d start seriously considering firing the coaches,” said David Bozell, the president of For America.

They distributed a letter sent to McConnell, where they outlined their criticism of the GOP leadership. Some of the groups have called for McConnell’s ouster before.

“You and the rest of your leadership team were given the majority because you pledged to stop the steady flow of illegal immigration,” the letter states. “You have done nothing. You pledged to reduce the size of this oppressive federal government. You have done nothing. You pledged to reduce, and ultimately eliminate the out-of-control deficit spending that is bankrupting America. You have done nothing. You promised to repeal Obamacare, ‘root and branch.’ You have done nothing. You promised tax reform. You have done nothing.”….

    Most times, its harder to see from the inside looking out. I have wondered how long it would take before the other Republicans would catch on to these five obstructionsts’s antics, that we citizens see happening every day. I hope Paul Rand, Linsey Graham, Ted Cruze, & that venomous traitor from Arizona, John McCain also got word that their days are numbered as well.

    • Dutch

      Why would you include Ted Cruz (an honorable politician) in that group?

  • Phaedrus51

    He won’t go without a fight. He loves his power, though he hasn’t a clue how to use it to advance anything but himself. Game on Mitch, you gotta’ go.

  • Marion Quinton

    Great throw him out. He is a S.P.O.S.

  • brooksmd

    House and Senate leadership has been one excuse after another and fail to support the POTUS because he’s not one of the DC swamp creatures. As voters we need to implement term limits.

  • Dead Toad

    We need to clean house a great many of so-called conservatives are actually liberals and globalists. You can tell by how they support the conservative agenda simply put they actually stand against it. They need to be identified and ousted.

  • Larry Baker

    Nice! Drain the Swamp!

  • Unforgotten27

    Cleaning the; “Swamp”, isn’t easy, they leave huge rings of sluge residule everywhere it’s been!
    We the American voters need to make sure to replace them with sanitized replacements!!!!

  • Gregg Parker

    If this was a football team they have the hot dog vendor playing quarterback! Where have these folks been to only be calling for his ouster now?? Of course he’s got to go! When are the other non purchased Senators going to stand up and support the team!? Bench these Republicrats before 2018!

  • Harry Pearson

    Mitch McConnell has shown his true stripes, that he doesn’t care one whit about the people of America, he is nothing more than a tool of the uber-rich, the Globalists, the Elitists, and hopes to be one of them someday. The rest of the “Leadership” team is of the same ilk, and it would behoove the country greatly to be rid of such men, especially in the positions they occupy. This country needs new direction, it wants new direction as shown by the November elections, and it will have new direction.

  • richard black

    their RINO list didnt go deep enough !!!

  • RestoreAmericaNow

    Tec Cruz for senate leader would be a good start.

  • misterguru

    Sounds like a good plan to me. He is definitely at war with conservative values and opposed to the President of the USA and opposed to the voters.

  • misterguru

    While we are at it, get rid of Pelosi and Shumer. 2 racists. Hey, they call everyone else a racist without evidence. What’s good for the goose… I hear Pelosi supports killing black babies (Planned Parenthood)

  • Bob Stewart

    Yes, and I am one of them. Force him out.

  • They are playing the game that is popular on the hill, it’s what I call the, “I want to keep my really high paying job, but will not do anything that I was hired to do” game. It is played like a giant board game, every day, you roll the dice, and the longer you can stay in office without actually doing your job, the more points are accrued! There are many that are tied for the poll position! They shoot horses, don’t they? DRAIN THE SWAMP!

  • liberty49

    We need to demand TERM LIMITS and get rid of both parties who have too many in the Senate and the House who have served WAY PAST THEIR PRIME!

    • PNut67

      I WOULD CERTAINLY VOTE FOR THAT!!! The POTUS only gets 2….same could apply for House & Senate….
      It is actually the ONLY WAY we will ever drain the swamp!!!

      • liberty49

        We also need to take away their right to vote for pay raises for themselves! Who else gets to do that? And they should not be able to change the rules of the Senate and House either!

  • gideonrockwell

    It is time to purge the GOP of RINOs. We are in bare knuckles warfare with the Democrat Socialist formrly known as the Democrat Party {If that coven of reptilian low lifes were honest they would add the Socialists to their party name} and we don’t need Pseudo Republicans getting in the way of our winning.

  • mari

    VOTE HIM OUT!! He doesn’t serve the people. He makes decisions that aggrandize his own interests. The truth is not in him, he promises to meet the needs of his constituents but produces nothing. He fights the president that we elected on everything we want. Three strikes he’s out.

  • George Durdin

    McConnell is the roadblock to fulfilling President Trump’s pro America agenda for purely political and personal reasons. McConnell sets the agenda in the Senate and has slow walked the Houses efforts to move the country forward by stalling nearly 270 pieces of legislation. He has continually sent the Senate home on vacations and has failed to deal with the backlog of issues before Congress.

  • MIKE6080

    doesnt the gop realize that without conservatives they are gone

  • Sharon Melvin

    Defeat all RINOs up for reelection in the primary. Get more candidates that will support the president.

  • Kirk Kahler

    every one that is sick of nothing ever getting done and the corruption of the left come 2018 we the people who voted for a America first agenda need to be out there and vote for make America great again !!

  • We need to do something right now about Sen. McConnell. We can no longer tolerate his do nothing behavior. I am contacting my senators to protest McConnell’s behavior.

  • Deplorable Lanie

    Right On! Great letter, great idea. Lets DITCH MITCH!!! We are tired of the do-nothing representatives. Let this be a warning to all the representatives Congress and Senate alike – if you continue this do nothing strategy, we will find someone who will do something. We elected President Trump because we like his agenda. but you do nothing to advance it? And you think we should keep you in your high paying, influential job?

  • Let the Rino’s retire or go back to the real work force as they are worthless ! No more funds until they clean there own house !

  • The low IQed mcconnell has become encrusted encrusted in the Senate for 32 years. They’d need the jaws of life to pry him out of his chair. He’s made so much money from lobbyists it’s insane, but the worst part is that he’s been doing it for the democrats. He’s the head RINO. Dirtiest knees of the herd. TERM LIMITS!

  • He should have been removed months ago. Both McConnel and Ryan ‘must’ be removed for the sake of allowing America’s government to work as envisioned by our Founding Fathers. These two men and their Dark State cabal have slowed our government for months after receiving the ability to bring solutons for America’s problems with celerity. They have brought America’s government to a standstill. This cabal’s intrigues are obviously directed to the usurpation of the legally elected President of the United States of America and must be recognized as traitorest and illegal, punishable by law.

  • Louie Rey

    It’s essentially affirmation of what Rush Limbaugh said about even the GOP wanting to see President Trump fail. They don’t want to be shown up by the ultimate outsider who’s actually accomplishing things while these career politicians, McConnell a perfect example of one, hasn’t accomplished anything in over thirty years. And that’s why he should resign along with McCain, Graham, Ryan and all the rest of the RINOs in office.

    Ni xianzai bixu zoule, Mitch, ask ur Chinese wife…or as John Pinette was told, ‘u here too long, u must go!

  • Dutch

    Thank you. I was for Ted Cruz, but I didn’t know about his stand on immigration.

    • PNut67

      That’s why, EVERY election year (2018. 2020,,for examples) you should ALWAYS find out about those running for their offices on BOTH sides of the aisle…you will learn much. Take for example: all Republicans are Conservative & all Democrats are liberal, right? No!WRONG! There are some “good” Conservative Democrats….I personally have voted for some here in TX. Then, there are some “bad” liberal Republicans. I will NOT vote for them. But here’s the kicker: LAMEstream media will NOT tell you which candidates are bucking their party (read: Pro-life Democrats here).Read man…..every election cycle, Read what the men & women you plan on voting for stand on. That way, YOU have the upper hand. YOU will be what THEY hate….an informed voter voting on informed decisions….not just voting because they wear a certain name tag. That advice was for free, & is for others who read my post…READ!!!!!!

        Thank you, I appreciate your advice, and this is not sarcasm. I rarely use sarcasm because I want to be well understood.
