I can count on one hand the number of people I know who understood the danger of Senator Mitch McConnell for over a decade; and all of them are admins at CTH.
Mitch McConnell is the most Machiavellian republican in modern history. In 2010 it was Senator McConnell who wanted to see the Tea Party destroyed, and he did everything in his power to achieve that goal along with his friend Tom Donohue, then president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Additionally, almost everything centering around the current rogue intelligence community can be traced back to McConnell making deals with democrat senators to stand aside from oversight if they secure his position of influence and affluence.
McConnell is exactly the guy Taylor Caldwell was writing about in her book, A Pillar of Iron:
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.”
“For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
