1. Lawence is thick with

the Senate Aides. Never doubt his take on Mitch. The China paying for access to Trump is blowing up by the day.

Now we have Boeing and the Department of Transportation run by Mrs.Mitch in the cross hairs. Stories about Shipping contracts being under the microscope.

5. It has been noted for sometime,

Senior Senate Staffers watch and communicate with O'Donnell on a regular basis.

O'Donnell was Senior Tax Writer for the Senate for eight years and was considered on of the best when it came to writing policy dealing with Federal Tax Laws.

He was the first to sound the alarms about changes to Federal Tax Laws when Bush and Cheney came to power.

6. +1

He's definitely been the right man at the right time in all this - a lot like Edward R. Murrow in his day.

His Program is one tight ship. His Producers and Directors mess up,and chances are,down the road you go.

2. I took notice of that segment as well.

Mitch McConnell has abdicated his position to Trump. He is powerless as Senate Democrats are more aggressive now in bringing him, McConnell to account, and to hold Trump accountable.

Having a 33% job approval rating in your state is not a good position to be in if running for reelection. It will be my guess that McConnell announces sometime this year that he is retiring from the Senate. This will be seen by Democrats as a defeat both personally and politically in their eyes that McConnell has been weakened beyond repair.

7. That roaring sound you hear, Yertle McTurtle?

That's another blue wave, headed you way.

Lawrence mentioned and featured a campaign video of Amy McGrath. In an email I received received this morning the Ditch (Mitch) Fund reported on a tremendous grassroots effort underway to draft her to run against McConnell.
In just 24 hours, they have received donations from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. At the moment, it's no match against the dark money that her would-be opponent can pull down from Big Oil, Big Pharma, the NЯA and -- of course -- the Kochs, Mercers and the Adelsons. Unless, of course, they realize that this turtle on the fence-post is just not worth it.

We were able to unseat a boatload of Representative last November. Let's do it again in 2020!

12. I like your analysis and the image of the turtle on the fencepost. I wouldn't want that for a real

turtle, but McTurtle can sit up there in the Kentucky sun forever, as far as I'm concerned. Or, as the good old boys down there are wont, a bit of target practice.

11. Kick and recommend.Thanks for posting.

Millionaire Mitch has done nothing but degrade the civil discourse & the Senate as an institution.
Please Kentucky Dems kick him out!
